Summers give me time to do catch-up reading and I just recently flipped through an old book of mine titled “Necessary Losses” by Judith Viorst which talks about the loves, illusions and impossible expectations that all of us have to give up in order to grow.

I have to quote some of the best anecdotes from the book that hopefully can change your life. While you're at it, get that box of Kleenex and brace yourself for some cryapalooza!

photo by kiapkiapI have expressed in the past about my being skeptical that Pinoy mainstream movies doesn’t reach my taste so often despite them making it to international spotlight like, well, Cannes. But with Brillante Mendoza, new name in the Philippine film making industry, making waves when he recently accepted the Best Director for the indie film “Kinatay,” it dawned upon me that a small country as ours could actually serenade critics all over the world. The movie is about Peping who is recruited by his classmate, Abyong, to work as a part-time errand boy for a local syndicate in Manila.

Later, Carlos arrives to pick Lynette up for a meeting that was moved up but she is in the shower and she slips and is knocked unconscious. Carlos saves her and she is horrified that he saw her naked so she wants him to keep it a secret because Tom would freak out if he knew. Meanwhile, Gaby has joined a garden club thinking they would sit around gossiping and drinking margaritas while looking at the flowers but did not realize they would be doing actual gardening.
