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.

Malunggay pesto with danggit (dried fish). Trying some twists with local ingredients. #local #pasta #homecook I scraped the last of the Ossuloc green tea milk spread. One of my best haul from Korea. Good thing there is a Jipan substitute, less milky and more matcha. But I will still look for that 오설록 version. So good! #matcha #spread #ossuloc #jipan #korea #manila Feels like an aperitivo night. Good food, good drinks, and good company. Cheers! #gamerchef #moment Blurry photo of malunggay (moringa) pesto pasta topped with leftover five spice fried chicken. Made the pesto from scratch, was able to fill a small jar with it. Shelf life will probably not be long, as there are no preservatives, just malunggay, garlic, and olive oil. Good flavor, just need to adjust some things next time. Cooking experiment is fun. This is also much healthier and  cheaper than the commercially available pesto sauce. #dinner #homecook Pastries, taho, and cinnamon & strawberry tea. Love breakfasts. #breakfast Pumpkin cream pasta experiment. Need more pumpkin. Also need some nutmeg, just discovered that I am out of it. Still so yummy. Cumin works wonders. As well as a bit of cayenne pepper. #pasta #cooking #homecook
