beveraging naman

hm, no wonder this is my favorite poison of choice of all time...


It is nothing more than ethanol and water. And precisely for that reason, vodka makes the perfect mix.

This crystalline libation is the drink least likely to give one hangovers or headaches. It leaves no telltale scent of liquor on ones’ breath—truly a breathless experience. For those who want to come clean with not a hint of guilt, it is the clear choice. The reason is its purity.

Unlike wines, beers, liqueurs and spirits that are colored by tannin, enlivened by sparkle and froth or flavored and sweetened by the fruit or grain for which they were derived, vodka is repeatedly distilled and filtered to absolute purity. One simply can no longer tell its fermented origins, be it potatoes, rye, wheat or sugar beet. And unlike gin, which is redistilled with juniper and other botanicals, vodka is pure, readily imparting its sensuously smooth crystalline fire to any number of concoctions.

delish. read the rest of the article here.

at dahil nasa manila times page na lang din kayo, read na rin my column for today.

Why don’t Filipino readers read Filipino authors?

In a public lecture about the current state of the Philippine novel, award-winning literary writer Professor Jose “Butch” Dalisay’s talk induced yet another thought-provoking insight for this scribe. In his lecture, Dalisay said that, contrary to what people have been saying, Filipinos love to read. But, he added, they’re just not reading us. By us, he meant local Filipino authors, especially Filipino novelists.

Interesting observation, and I wonder why that is so. Some curious people also wondered, and asked him some plausible reasons. Sir Butch mentioned that perhaps the kinds of novels local writers come out with have topics that may not be of interest to our audiences anymore. This might be a sad fact, but it may also be a valid fact.

eto siya in whole.

shameless plug :)


er, going back to that beverage thingie, here's an interesting story din:
