I could vaguely recall the years when martial law prevailed in the Philippines. I was born in 1980 and the recollection I had of one of the darkest moments in the country’s history was when I was six years old.

The Day the Circus Came to Town…

I feel fabulous this month. I am thrilled to be able to watch Cirque Du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco”–the much-awaited circus show in Manila. True, I’m not fond of circus shows, but this one’s different.
