    This is my problem with books that are actually collections of newspaper articles of the author reading them once again feels like a total waste of time I know that some people love the idea of having a collection of the articles that they used to read on a regular basis They cherish the compilations as prized possessions because they are reminders of the days when those people read and enjoyed those works Oh, I read this one on the same day I got my first menstrual period Oh, I read this one while on a bus going to the my first job, etc I don t I have three thousand plus physical books at home and my wife is already complaining that books are now taking over our lives Also, novels or stories that I enjoyed a lot are permanently etched in my heart and I don t need to see the books to be reminded of them.Also, since the essays or the stories were written in the distant past, they now become outdated The popular events, movies, books, music, politicians, showbiz personalities and sport players during the time when the articles were written now seem to be ancient and irrelevant Well, some of the subjects are now considered as classic or icons but that could only happen if the author has a good judgement on what to write, i.e., immortalize If the author has a populist taste who tends to go with the fads after all, she has to write what sells, I understand that , then after a decade or two, the article will already have this icky trashy feel Don t get me wrong I am not bashing this book Jessica Zafra is dear to me She is just a year younger than me She graduated from the same grade school where my own daughter graduated from I love her witty and acerbic prose I used to buy that now closed newspaper called Today where the essays in this book originally appeared I associate these essays with the first year of my marriage when my wife and I were still childless and Today was being delivered by a newspaper delivery man every morning to our doorstep The reason why this paper and not PDI or The Manila Bulletin Not only because it was the cheapest newspaper during that time when we were still struggling on building our love nest and family but also because of course, this entertaining daily column by then a budding writer, Jessica Zafra In other words, I love Jessica Zafra I love her attitude in life I even made sure to catch her in youth oriented axed TV weekly show over at Channel 5 But I rather read her fresh rather than her frozen chemically treated history books Somebody has to draft a law to put expiration dates to this kind of books

    A re read, but definitely, going back the the freshness of her prose years before she climbed to stardom, is worth the sitting.

    Jessica Zafra could write about the most mundane topic and still make it interesting with her humor and sharp wit.

    When this book was published, I wasn t even born yet So no, I have never read the Today magazine which is why I m grateful for this volume Although I can t really relate or understand some of the entries, I really appreciated some and realized that Society hasn t change that much at all When it comes to the writer however, I felt like I was reading a blog and I love reading blogs as much as I love reading books as long as ther person is interesting to me Jessica Zafra s tales are witty, honest and at times, inspirational.

    If Chandler Bing was a girl, this would pass as his journal Tackling the bane of everyday living in Manila, Jessica Zafra s collection of articles voices out the frustrations of those of us living under the awful Metropolitan circumstances, be it Manila or somewhere else It s a guilty pleasure, and raises important topics even touching in politics and religion without sounding too self absorbed, and most of all, without breaking that dry sarcastic tone.
