Matchmaking 101

Luna is what people would typically call a Lesbian. She’s having a hard time when it comes to  dating .First let me say it out loud that the dating game is hard. Finding yourself suddenly single, mimicks being thrown to the sharks. You have to re-learn how to date, the rules of the dating game. What’s even harder? Searching for a potential lover. Dating is not about marrying, mating or pairing although it might lead to any of those activities. It’s regarding getting to identify other lesbians, exploring your options, just having enjoyment. It’s so uncommon, in actual fact, the lesbian nation needs a primer to provide us a much desired pointer, for instance “. It’s never a good idea to ask someone to marry you ahead of the first date” or “your mother only warned you about calling boys first. Continue reading »

Rosario

The story revolves around Rosario (Jennylyn Mercado), a paragon of beauty and grace, intelligent, sophisticated, a liberal thinker, a young and liberated Filipina in the 1920s who has just arrived from New York, and is spending her vacation in their hacienda. The daughter of Don Enrique (Phillip Salvador) and Doña Adela (Eula Valdez), Rosario was a passionate woman who lives according to her heart’s desires.
She was a woman ahead of her time then , she meets and falls in love with Vicente (Yul Servo), an older man who manages the tobacco plantation owned by Rosario’s family. When Rosario’s father finds out about his daughter’s scandalous affair, he sends Rosario to a convent.
She escapes, and elopes with Vicente to Manila where they raise a family. But Rosario’s life of married bliss slowly crumbles when Vicente becomes ill with tuberculosis, and she is lured to committing adultery. Temptation and scandal still hound Rosario as she continues to defy the moral restrictions of her time.
Based on a true story and set in one of the most colorful periods in Philippine history, ROSARIO is destined to be a modern masterpiece in Philippine film making.

Prayer in a Garden

Today the world seemed cruel, but evening hours
Were filled with perfume from forgotten flowers that’s found in the outdoor planters. I saw again familiar filigree of moonlight through my lacy Lilac tree;

The outddor planter seems empty as my plant is now wilting
I heard the robins stirring in their nest;
And saw the path th at fairy feet had pressed;
Reflected stars were in my indoor planters
garden pool;

On my warm face the breeze was kind and cool.
The silence seemed to speak, my head was bowed,
Then ramblers that had grown into a cloud
Lifted my eyes that, tear-washed, now could see

The beauty that today was lost to me.
Dear god, who is so near to flowers, and birds,
Be nearer still, as I shall search for words
To thank Thee for the blessings night revealed
which was shown by the beauty of the single tiny
bulb of rose found in my indoor planter
Which through the day discouragement concealed
