event: it only hurts when i pee, a book launching

I have received numerous invites for upcoming events which I sadly have to turn down as my full-time mum schedule won’t allow me. This book launching invite is no exception. Too bad since judging from the email i got this might just be a very exciting book launching.
Here’s part of the press release for the event:
In a country riveted by an impeachment trial, in a world with economic uncertainty, in a universe threatened by doomsday predictions, writer and yaya’s boy RJ Ledesma asks the important questions:
Why can’t men pee straight into the toilet bowl? What is it like for a man to get a Brazilian wax? If you hold in a fart, will you implode? And why are our testicles smaller than that of a chimpanzee’s?
Interesting + intriguing enough, right? Anyway if you will be luckier that I am + will have some time to spare come Monday night, do not forget to check out¬†as three-time best seller and 30th National Book Awards finalist launches his fourth humor book IT ONLY HURTS WHEN I PEE, RJ Ledesma’s Guide to Bodily Gases, Hair Loss and Pink Parts‘ on February 20, Monday, 6PM at Powerbooks, Greenbelt 4, Makati City + yes, come and bring your pink parts! ūüôā

blaze of glory by m. garzon, a book review

books, reviews,

My fascination with horses started when I visited Quezon province all those many years ago, people have horses tied in their backyards all around. If I can afford it then, I would’ve probably bought myself one! Horses are such fascinating, gentle creatures that I am always in awe whenever I see one in the zoo or last year, when we just hailed a horse-driven carriage when we got out of Manila Ocean Park, just because. It was an experience worth having. The little man is just as fascinated with the horse as I was.

Having said that, I guess it won’t be surprising that I’d also jump at any books with horses in them + enjoy reading them, too! Just like this one from M. Garzon, Blaze of Glory.

The gripping novel about horses, love, and the passions that consume us.

lovely pink book tokens

pink stuff, books,

I bought loads of these fairy tale books to be given away to my godchildren last Christmas from Learning is Fun {where I have signed up as a dealer}. Even my sisters asked me to get them some so they can give them away as gifts, too. Aren’t they the loveliest, hard-bound + very affordable, too!

The very pink books feature our most-loved fairy tales, including these ones on the photo, Cinderella + Goldilocks. I believe books are the most interesting things you can give to children {aside from toys, of course} as this will not only promote learning + entertain them as well, but it will also prove beneficial to expose them to reading + the love of books at a younger age. I want my son to be a book lover, too, so I am exposing him to different books this early ūüôā

Anyway, these books are supposed to be gifts to 2 lovely daughters of two of my mummy blogger friends. Unfortunately, I was not able to ship them just yet as when I went to the courier, they refused to ship the other items {it has liquid on it} that are supposed to be included in the package. I tried placing them on cardboard boxes {which my brother made especially for me} but the courier still refuse to accept them + I did not have the chance to go around + scour the city much in search for another courier service, so my sincerest apologies to sis Sheng {I was suppose to ship this in time for you + the little ones birthday :(} + Sigrid.  I will see to it that I ship them before the month ends.

Sharing this pink stuff through:
