Not again. 2016 is really the worst year ever now. I’m posting three R.I.P. posts in a row. We just lost the legendary Debbie Reynolds a day after her daughter Carrie died. It’s just sad that she passed away right after her daughter’s death. Maybe she just wanted to join him (her son Todd mentioned it according to the reports). Words can’t describe how sad and devastating this news is. Debbie Reynolds was one of the remaining Hollywood royalties. She was known for her iconic role on Singin’ in the Rain, one of my favorite musical films of all time. She was so great there and she can sing, dance and act. Plus, before I slept last night, I was watching Oprah’s interview with Debbie and Carrie and it was just heartwarming to see them together. Now, they’re both gone. I don’t know how to express my sadness and grief regarding the deaths of Debbie and Carrie. It’s just so devastating.

May you rest in peace, Ms. Reynolds together with your daughter Carrie. My heart goes to Billie Lourd.

2016 is officially the worst year ever. We just lost our beloved Princess Leia. Like the rest of the galaxy and millions of Star Wars fans around the world, I’m sad and devastated about the news of Carrie Fisher’s death. Besides her immortalized role of Princess Leia, I will also miss her wit on her interviews. I always love to watch her interviews and it never fails to make me laugh. She’s simply one of the funniest women ever. I have no words to say about this because it’s just so devastating. I just want to thank her for the autograph photo. I will treasure it.

Condolence to Debbie Reynolds, Billie Lourd and the rest of her family. We will miss you so much. May the Force be with you always.

R.I.P. George Michael

I want to pay tribute to the late George Michael, one of the most awesome singers of all time. I was shocked and sad when I learned about his death on Christmas Day which also turned out to be his Last Christmas. I love some of his songs (including the ones from Wham!). He’s such a legend. We will miss you.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Have a happy holiday. Be thankful for every gift that you will receive even though it’s just a shirt which is a sign that they’re too lazy to think about what they are going to give to you. But, anyways, the most important is the spirit of Christmas. So, once again, Merry Christmas!

Also, get well soon to Carrie Fisher. May the Force be with you.

One of the most controversial issues right now is Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s war against drugs campaign. It’s a controversial issue not just here in the Philippines but also around the world. The campaign has met criticisms from human rights groups as well as the United Nations and U.S. president Barack Obama. Now, here’s my take about this hot issue in which I’m going to talk about the pros and cons of the campaign from my perspective as an ordinary Filipino citizen.

Yet Another Dog Grief

I’m currently busy right now from all these bunch of school works that I have do. There’s really plenty of them. It’s unstoppable but it’s okay since there’s only less than two weeks left before the semester ends.

But, in the middle of all that…yet another dog grief happened. Mimi passed away. The last surviving puppy has died. The cause of her death is similar to her sister Kara who died two days before. They were both sick. We don’t know exactly what sickness did they have. I just feel sad right now especially for their mother Chi who is grieving. She was beside her daughter’s body before she was buried. I felt weak when I saw how sad Chi is when her last baby has also died. She loved her kids so much. I can feel the sadness in her heart.

But, life goes on. Until now, I’m still grieving about the death of Mimi and Kara deep inside because of two reasons: I felt sad for their mother and I loved them both very much. Also, it’s not because I named Mimi after my crush but it’s because they were like my babies and I loved them so much. They would always greet me whenever I arrive from school. Now, their parents Chi and Snowy are the ones who will greet me now when I arrive at home.

As I move on to do the school works that I need to do, I will always treasure the moments that I spent with Mimi and Kara. I will always love them from the bottom of my heart. Chi and Snowy will miss them so much. I will also miss them. Gone too soon. Farewell, Mimi and Kara.
