Meet Trublue III

My friends, this is Trublue III. He is Trublue’s grandson, future Igorot/iCordillera advocate (unnecessary child pressure ba ito hehe?), and future Tiger Woods.

Trublue III’s grandfather needs no introduction around here and in other Igorot/iCordillera blogs but I’d like to state for the record that the grandpa is one of the reasons why we Igorots/iCordilleras have a lively corner in the blogosphere.

There and Back Again …. A Blogger’s Tale By Bill Bilig Baggins

Apologies for the unannounced blogging hiatus. Like that silly hobbit Bilbo Baggins, I went off adventuring to other nooks and climes which, unfortunately, are full of goblins, trolls, giant spiders, and miserly dragons.

Welcome the Year of the Rat

Are you a rat? Then chances are you will be very lucky this year according to Madam Auring. Don’t know how dogs like me will fare in the year of the rat but I’m hoping that it will be a lucky year hehe.

Anyways, I was watching TV last night when this activist from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) appeared on screen and asked people to not trap rats in their homes. I was like, “Huh, lady. Are you crazy? Isn’t your time better spent on saving pandas, baby seals, and the endangered Philippine eagle?”

Watching the Australian Open

Go Jo-Wilfried!!!

Hello kailiyans Down Under! Are anyone of you watching (or monitoring) the Australian Open? Kind of interesting results so far, no? Upsets began on Day One and kept going. I’m glad Roger Federer is still there and I hope he wins the title. I wouldn’t mind though if the young ones (particularly Djokovic and the Tsonga kid) end up winning.
