POSTLUDE TO “NAKASULAT SA MGA TALA” (August 10, 2010)
Curiousity got the better of Taribong to read Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper as Salbehe and Jasonhamster gave raves about the film version as a tearjerker masterpiece. What got Taribong to reading is the legal aspect of it. An added bonus is the astronomy part hehehe.
Jodi Picoult is a superb and wonderful author. She’s a great writer. If you’ve seen the film, you still have to read the book. It’s a fantastic and awesome read. It will be worth your while. Have fun! As I mentioned to Kaye, the book may make her eyes clearer :D.
P.S. Honestly, as of this time, i’m not yet through reading the book and i have yet to see the film. hehehe. 😀

DREAMING IN OUTER SPACE (July 29, 2010)
Taribong went on an out-of-town engagement. He fell asleep on the bus and dreamt. His dream was interrupted and he was roused from sleep when something hit the bus’ glass window wall. The bus driver did not stop and just drove the bus away. A candy vendor was let in and gave samples of his sweets to the passengers. Now, would you care to interpret taribong’s dream?
