Dearest Jill — An open letter to Jill Robredo and colleagues in media

You are only 13,  and I feel terrible how people seem to keep forgetting this fact when they speculate and report about the events surrounding the plane crash. When they show photographs of you and your sisters with your faces buried in your hands, when they upload photographs of you sobbing into the arms of your classmates and teachers who have come to bring you comfort. These visuals do not help at all and only show a lack of respect for your private pain.

So cold here, craved matcha latte. Also, had to google what tochiotome is. This chococro is yummy. Filling reminds me of Meiji strawberry chocolates from my childhood. #gamerchef #tochiotome #pastry #café Trying out UCC's Kilimanjaro blend. Smells strong but actually quite gentle when brewed. Will try to add a bit more grounds next time. #coffee #breakfast #ucc My favorite shade of pink. #dessert #cottoncandy #sweets #gamerchef #gamerchef left something for me. Lol. #dessert #sweets #cottoncandy Cooked some Ifugao Tinawon fancy rice tonight. Followed the instruction, 2.5 cup of water for every cup of rice. Also added a bit of salt as suggested. Turned out really nice, though next time I'd cook it without the salt. It has a nice, almost al dente texture when cooked. Its rounder compared to the widely available white rice. The pinkish color is cute. Been trying out some alternative rice--forbidden black, red, and brown. Loving it, though admittedly, some of them are priced twice as much if not more than white rice. This one is P125 ($3) per half kilo and that's expensive for this country. These options are much healthier than white rice though. Any suggestions for me? #rice #food #healthyfood #homecooking Hoot hoot! My blue owl. #coloringbook #adultcoloringbook #enchantedforest #johannabasford
