Pwede pa ba?

Sa tuwing hihigop ako nang mainit na kape ay palaging napapaso ang dila ko, nawawalan ng panlasa at nakakalimutan ko ang tamis at pait ng paborito kong kape. Tatayo ako sa paborito kong upuan at pupunta sa unahan ng coffe shop para humingi ng tubig upang mapawi ang pagkakapaso sa dila ko.
Minsan naman ay nakakagat ko ang aking dila at aasa ako na baka ako ay iyong naalala, ngunit sa tuwing hihingi ako ng numero sa pagbabakasakaling letra ng una mong pangalan ang lalabas, pipikit ako at hihiling na sana letra ng pangalan mo ang maging sagot sa pagbibilang ko. Magbibilang ako sa alpabetong nakasanayan ko at matatapos sa ibang letra na di ko naman ginusto, hahanapan ko ng paraan upang maidikit sa pangalan mo, pero wala, walang maidikit kahit baliktarin ko pa ang bawat letra nito.
Hihigop ako ng kape kasabay sa paglimot nang pagkapaso ng dila ko. Hihigupin ko ang paborito kong kape habang nakaupo sa pwesto na kung saan madalas tayo nakaupo. Tatanghod sa malayo at iisipin na baka pwede ba at baka meron pa. Pero wala, wala nang pag asa ang nanlamig mong panlasa na parang kape ko na unti unting lumalamig sabay sa pag manhid nang dila ko.
Uuwi ako at magbabaksakali na sa aking pag gising isang tasang kape ang ihahain mo. Ngunit wala na talaga. Wala na ang unang tamis na nalasahan ko, wala na ang pait na pilit kong pinapalitan ng tamis. Wala na ang pampagising ko sa inaantok kong sandali. Ayoko ng kumapit sa natitirang sana dahil baka sa huli na kong sakaling mabuo pa at magbalik ang lahat ay maging iba na at hindi na maging sakto ang timpla.
Hanggang dito na lang sa pagbabakasakaling makakalimutan kita at makakasanayan ko na ang uminom ng kape ng wala ka.


Bloggers receive early Christmas treat with FAME’s Blog spot

December 2, 2016 Bayleaf Hotel-Recognizing how influential and powerful bloggers are in the digital world nowadays, Friendly Alliances and Media Expression (FAME), Inc, has once again gathered some of the industry’s top bloggers, YouTubers, and and social media influencers of food, lifestyle, travel, health and wellness, beauty and fashion for an early Christmas treat.

Dubbed as Blog Spot: Holiday Treat,  the event, which also featured FAME brands alongside with its corporate partners and supporters, is in response to how digital world is changing our way of communication worth its spot live streams, bringing news in just one click or share, and even creating influential health campaigns that trigger change.

Thus FAME is also changing the way readers see health into user-friendly, convenient and innovative platform.

Owned by its very own Editor-in-Chief and publisher, Dr. Rafael R. Castillo, an acclaimed cardiologist by profession, FAME’s flagship publication, Health and Lifestyle (H&L) magazine, gives readers the quintessential guide for modern-day doctors. It contains not only with updates on medical developments, but also with the day-to-day know-how on being a better individual through its heart-felt stories.

Two years later, FAME expanded its work and ventured into commercial publications. The DiabetEASE  magazine was published to empower people with diabetes and their families. This platform serves as a guide to broaden awareness on better management of the chronic disease and its multiple causes, which has affected close to millions of Filipinos.

Not long after, the publishing company advocated philippine and international tourism with Travel Plus magazine giving every must-see destination for every traveler. A travel and trade magazine encouraging readers to go out and experience what the world has yet to offer.

The thanksgiving-Christmas party also highlighted the new and improved website of travel Plus magazine where readers can plan their next adventure right at their fingertips.

Recently, Zen Health magazine online was re-launched as an official online magazine reaching every empowered, modern day Filipina by providing an easy-access to informative, science-based facts on women’s health, and insightful lessons from some of the most inspirational women in the country.

From having only a doctor’s passion to write, FAME extended its message to promoting good health, a healthy lifestyle, sound Christian values, professional excellence, and becoming a trusted brand in creating quality publications.

To keep up with the digital age, the publishing company has redefined convenience with the launch of the first free mobile application- H&L Mobile App where readers can browse and read the magazine in PDF format and save it directly to their phone’s library.
