Aspiring Master Chef at Old Age

by Rudy A. Arizala
22 January 2016

For aspiring to cook “adobo” myself, it cost me three ceramic cooking pots which are considered material things which fade or pass away but have sentimental value being part of the kitchen wares at my home for many years.

Because I almost fall while in the kitchen . .and break my bones, should it be the end of my desire to cook and accept my destiny to continue surviving on my domestic helper’s knowledge in culinary arts?

Faith and the Common Good

by Rudy A. Arizala
10 January 2016

U.P. Professor and Columnist Randy David in his column Can faith be harnessed for the common good?, which appeared in the Philippine Daily Inquirer of 10 January 2016 stated, among others, in the first paragraph:

“The average Filipino’s religious faith is legendary and beyond question. It is strong and it goes into the core of his or her being. It is effusive and often produces a dramatic effect on his or her disposition and conduct. Can such a force, which in other circumstances has been used to justify war and terror, be harnessed for the common good?”

My daughter, the soldier

This was an article I posted six years ago. I am happy to say that Kirtsten is still in the Army, where she met her husband Mike Franka, and they now have sweet daughter, Little Mila.

We just saw our only daughter, Kirsten, off at the airport. She's on her way back to boot camp at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. As you can see in this photo, she seems really happy with her decision to join the Army.

New Year Musings

by rudy a. arizala
01 January 2016

New Year brings life happier
Everybody, they utter
Wonder if really matter
Year ends; comes another
Either here or everywhere
Another replace other
Rites done every coming year
Coming, going of season
Of time no need for reason
Methinks part of Lord’s vision
Ever since world’s creation
Sinners chance for salvation.

Musings at Yuletide

by rudy a. arizala
Santiago, Chile
19 December 2015

Saw crowd of Christmas shoppers outside
As I sat inside a Coffee Shop
Partaking of coffee and croissant
Where Neneto used to come around
On her scooter with her cheerful face
We two to have coffee together.
And then suddenly I remember
She and I return home together
To partake our lunch together
Especially these days of Yuletide.
Ah! those were the days I sadly missed
Since she has gone to that Great Beyond
And as I wipe teardrops from my eyes
I saw the glass door of Coffee Shop
Now sad, empty and bare without her.

A Diplomat's Family through a Milk Vendor's Eyes

by Rudy A. Arizala
17 December 2015

To most people a diplomat’s life and that of his family is something special, living extraordinary lives, enjoying abroad privileges, rubbing elbows with the high and the mighty beyond the reach of ordinary mortals or common people.

The other day, my youngest child and only daughter, Ale (Ma. Alejandra), had the greatest shock in her life while window shopping for Christmas.

Hereunder is her incredible but interesting story.
You won¨t believe what happend to me in the afternoon of 14 December 2015. My eight year old daughter Mayra and I went to Santiago's Ripley Store at Mall Costanera Center to do some shopping. Mayra felt thirsty so we went to a nearby "barquito" (kiosko) to buy a bottle of juice. When I was paying, the man who attended to us said: "I know you". I replied:"Really?, from where? And the man said:"from Coronel street". I was shocked in surprise because we were residing at Coronel street in the 80´s. In fact, we left that place when my father ended his diplomatic mission in Chile in 1989. That was some 30 years ago!!!!!. I was then in Grade School and then high school at Santiago College. So I asked him: " May I know why do you know me?". He replied: "I used to bring milk to your house. In fact I visited your kitchen more often than my own. You were then the little girl who love to sing and play the guitar.” I was even more shocked when he asked: "and how is your brother the ‘Rockero’?" (who else, but my younger brother Cachu!). And your elder brother? he had quite a strong character". He continued..."and how is Amel?" (He was referring to our maid from the Philippines). I almost fainted. Then he said: "I used to see two years ago your mother on her moto going to Mall Costanera Center"... and finally he asked : "and your papa, the Ambassador? How is he? I remember him walking in going to the Office early in the morning instead of riding in a car. When I asked him why he does not ride in a car, he replied:" Walking is a good exercise.”
