Here goes nothin':
Manila is the capital city of the Philippines. It stands on the eastern shore of Manila Bay on the largest and northernmost Philippine island, Luzon. Despite pockets of grinding poverty, it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. So c'mon over and visit us!
The town I live in now: Manila (still)
Manila can be best personified by the thousands of jeepneys that ply its streets daily. Meant as a temporary answer to post-Liberation Manila's transport crisis in the mid-1940s, the public utility jeepney (PUJ) continues to confound critics with its swaggering staying power. It is widely hailed as a "Symbol of Filipino Ingenuity" Why so? As one puts it, the Philippine jeepney is "an expression of folk baroque aesthetics reflecting the psyche of the average Filipino male. What those profuse curvilinear forms, candy-bright colors and image clusters reveal is his exuberant sense of public relations.

My name: Mary Ann
Yup, the most famous Mary Ann of all time, I believe. Guess you can't beat the 1959 winner of Miss America...
My grandma's name: Pilar
Figures...My grandma's name conjures up hotter images than mine! Aaargh!!!
My favorite food: Spanish
This cute little pic of Uncle Scrooge, Donald and his nephews setting forth amid a turbulent Spanish sea was hard to resist. So is paella, cuchinilla, lengua, canonigo, etc, etc, etc...
My favorite drink: Iced tea
The best thirst-quencher to my mind.
My favorite song: of the moment...Cool by Gwen Stefani
This seemed apropos, seeing as how much I'm into gadgets. I just love looking at, feeling them, owning them!
My favorite smell: Cucumber Melon
Ever since I got my first whiff of Bath and Bodyworks' Cucumber Melon line, I was hooked! I cannot get enough of the perfume, cologne, lotion, soap, and whatever else they have. So, if anyone out there wants to send them my way, remember, you WILL be rewarded in heaven - hehehe. Which reminds me, am down to one bottle of cologne. Gotta hoard some more...(insert evil laugh here)
