  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

torn

Thanks for the plug! You know your answer to the question about your favorite posts? Perhaps you could write a new post containing links to "On Leaving and Living", "Nice Girl" and "Intermezzo" (and any others that might occur to you). Or you could save that "greatest hits" idea for the next time you go away -- the blog "everyday matters" did that once and I enjoyed reading his older posts.

Sandra

Hi G - I'm so glad that you are receiving acknowledgement for your writing, taste, and style!

BatJay, Ang Dating Folk Singer ng Ma Mon Luk

hehey... sikat ang kapitbahay ko. congratulations. you deserve the manila bulletin feature because you're one of the best writers i know.

i am not saying this because i am your neighbor and want a free meal (although that would be a great idea). BWAHAHAHA.

seriously - you do write well.

Gigi

Hi Torn - "Greatest hits," huh? Hmmm...I might have to try that in two weeks when I go home again. I hope I get to see you again!

Sandra - Are we on for lunch tomorrow? For some reason I have that Ling & Louie in mind (don't know why, but I'm sick of CPK and Cheesecake Factory. And just about all the other restaurants across the street). And maybe we can swing by Anthropologie too? Maybe even Robinsons (their private label has some nifty knock-offs of DKNY pieces at a much better price and I want to see if they're on sale :) )?

KB - Thank you! Alam mo naman idol kita, so your pat on the back means a lot. BTW I have about a year's worth of Oprah magazines -- do you think Jet might want them? Kung OK, I'll walk over with them -- I need the exercise kasi. :)

K

You always speaks well of yourself and your blog is like my "book of inspiration".

Congratulations, Gigi.

Sandra

Yes, we are on for lunch. 11:00 at Ling & Louie, right?

Gigi

Thanks K!

Sandra - it was SO good to see you last week. Let's do the same thing when I get back, OK?

Manuel Viloria

Hi! Here's the valid MB link of Gigi Goes Gaga: So Good.

I'm maintaining a list of Ajay's Blog-O-Rama articles.

Gigi

Thanks Manuel!!!

Jayred

Way to go, Gigi! Of course, I'm not surprised at all that you were featured in MB. When's the PDI version naman? :-)

Cheers!

mell ditangco

I am so out of the loop, oh hey congrats on the feature. :D

Gigi

HI Jayred and Mell - Thanks!!! It was really sweet of Ajay to feature GGG, for sure. :)

Aylin

I love your blog!

Aylin

Gigi, u got our Charlie brown Tree :)

Gigi

Aylin - How funny you mention our tree -- I was just thinking today at lunch that it won't be long before I take it out of the box again! :)

Aylin

I know time is going by tooooooo fast. I also noticed the shoes that I dont like and you love I think you know which ones am talking about and of course your sugar free chocolates but you forgot one thing.......... SOUTH BORDER you got to add them to your list of artist

Gigi

I have an idea: you NEED to start up the Venezuelan chapter of the South Border fan club! Your main office can be located on the island (and you KNOW which island I'm talking about). I'm sure the guys won't mind visiting at all. :)

AylinA

You are too funny :)
