KCAT CAN: Sisters

by Maria Kahrina Lopez Yarza 
April 30, 2012

A sister is a best friend who will never desert you, no matter how often you sneak out wearing her prized dress or snarl up her precious make-up. No matter how many times we may fight and argue, our sisters will always be our friend. My sister, Talitha, and I have a good relationship as sisters and as friends.

Although Talitha and I have a five-year age gap, we had a close relationship while we were growing up. When we were kids, the two of us played a lot, and most of the time, it would end up with her crying. Then we would go back to being friends as if nothing happened.

A Birthday Wish: A wish within a wish.

When Kcat Yarza's birthday wish became Jho Litonjua's own birthday wish...

A fund-raising event for the gift-giving at the Philippine General Hospital - 2 Pedia Wards, Neurosurgery, Spine Surgery, Pedia ICU, and hopefully both Pedia cancer ward and Ward 10 too (if the budget permits).

Buy a ticket for P400.00 for a pass to the event inclusive of a book of your choice by Isshin Dream Publishing, foods, and an awesome time for book lovers or not. There will be a book reading / storytelling, inspirational talk, and more.

You also have the option to donate the book you will be receiving. As Kcat Yarza said, "It was so boring to be confined in the hospital. What more for these kids?" So why not give them something to do while helping them improve their literacy?

Proceeds of this event will help fund the upcoming gift-giving event tagged as MAY Birthday Project on May 12.

Checkout A Birthday Wish on Facebook. For tickets and inquiries, contact 09324196696.

***please help us spread the word.. thanks!

KCAT CAN: The Cinderella who loves to read

The Cinderella who loves to read

Cinderella was one of the first Disney movies that I watched as a kid. I have loved it since then. Even now that I am not able to hear the sweet and alluring voice of Cinderella anymore, I know it by heart.

I met Josephine Litonjua through a common friend, and we have been in constant communication ever since, talking about anything and everything. Yet it was only through her blog write-up on Junying Kirk, a Chinese-British author that I learned about Josephine’s interesting life, which is quite similar to that of my favorite Cinderella tale.

It's Easter Sunday!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." ~1 Peter 1:3

KCAT CAN: Compassion

Aside from being responsible for ourselves, we also have a responsibility towards others, bearing each other’s burdens, offering prayers of hope, strength, and faith to the needy…

I feel sad whenever I see sick children. In many ways, I feel thankful because even though I am sick and weak right now, I was able to enjoy my childhood, and I was given the chance to live a normal life until I turned 22.
I feel sad because those sick kids have no idea how fun it is to have a childhood that is ‘normal’ according to how society defines it.
I could have been in their situation and I owe it to these children that I am able to count my blessings. The sight of them humbles me and stirs up the compassion within me.

Went to Megamall w/ Janna MOMO & Maro while my mom's having her diamond peel at Medical Plaza(?) and since Janna is such a MOMO, we headed to Bo's Coffee where Ms. Talitha & Ms. Donna were both studying for their exams, quiz bee, etc. etc. The ending: we ate dinner at Amici. -_-
