Kilay is life

Netnet Camomot THERE are people who arrive in Cagayan de Oro via the first flight and leave it on the same day right after the meeting or event they’re attending here. It’s not because they’re afraid of CDO but due to their busy sked and they simply can’t stay in …

Keeping Christmas

Netnet Camomot .  JOHN Grisham wrote “Skipping Christmas” that morphed into the movie, “Christmas With the Kranks,” and I don’t remember reading or watching both since they were published/shown in 2001 and 2004, respectively. Which could be 1961 and 1964 to a sweet sixteen in 1980 who, of course, would …

When hearts beat fast: The Naval-Gomez Nuptials

“Heart beats fast / Colors and promises / How to be brave? / How can I love when I’m afraid to fall / But watching you stand alone? / All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow / One step closer.” WITH that leading the medley of songs for the …

‘Borderline’

Netnet Camomot . FROM American Dream to American Nightmare? They’re border children—separated at the US border from their parents who are now facing criminal prosecution as illegal immigrants due to Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

Communicating

Netnet Camomot . TODAY is the last working day before the long Easter weekend. Do you know where you’re going to?

2019

Netnet Camomot THE first “Blade Runner” was released in 1982. All I remember of it was, it was dark. Hardly any sun in its scenes. It’s a futuristic movie set in the year 2019, which would be 37 years later if you were watching it in 1982. In 1982, I …

Promise, ha?

Netnet Camomot THE Marawi siege will end on Oct. 15, 2017. That’s according to the military. We have to put the year, otherwise… But we’re so tempted to say, Promise, ha? The military does seem to be a fan of the saying, “Promises are made to be broken.” There have …

War is stupid

Netnet Camomot THE gadgets are now updating again to a higher level, and the technologically challenged has to adjust again with the new features. I’m the type who used to panic with a desktop way back in the early 21st century—more particularly, in 2003—when the monitor went black. I texted …
