Literatus: About Kaolin

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 08:10 p.m.

I LIKE the name “Kaolin.” It sounds indigenous to my ears. It is actually the white clay used in the manufacture of porcelain tiles, ceramics and insulators.

Chemically, however, it is called “hydrated aluminum silicate.” Physically, it is a white or yellow-white powder with a slightly slippery feel. It dissolves not in water. Light kaolin has finely divided particles that yield a very large overall surface area. That means, if you measure the surface area of each molecule in a pinch, the total represents a very large surface area.

Of friends and burgers

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 01:47 p.m.

IT'S the friend who you can call up at 4 a.m. that matters, so says Marlene Dietrich. I could not agree more with her. There have been many times when valuable friends stood by me when I needed them. I consider myself blessed for having them. So much so that I jumped on every opportunity to meet up with good friends I haven't seen for a long time.

It was a lovely day for rekindling old ties as I and my friends from years past gathered once more. Everybody always has a story to tell every time we see each other. And everyone else is always giddy of hearing about it.

Dolls for Nico

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 01:45 p.m.

THE love for dressing up Barbie dolls has always been regarded as a girl thing. Surely, a lot of people can relate that Barbie dolls are one of the many top reasons why your Inday or Baby Girl threw tantrums if she goes home from the mall empty-handed.

But this story would prove otherwise. Dolls are for boys, too. At 14 years old, Roginico Pecardal or Nico is fond of creating and sewing miniature dresses for the world’s famous toy. His craftiness is tested as he collects old clothes and extra cloth and transform it to beautiful gowns and wardrobe accessories -- all these, for the love of Barbie and yes, imagination.

Multi-colored carrots

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 01:44 p.m.

DID you know that carrots are actually a multi-colored crop? Yes, it was due to a research study made some 50 years ago but I don’t know why multi-colored carrots are still not common in our local markets.

That, we owe to the Agricultural Research Service’s Vegetable Crops Research Unit at Madison, Wisconsin led by plant geneticist Philipp Simon.

Discovering the native heart

Monday, September 29, 2014 - 05:59 p.m.

ONE multi-talented artist has given Cebuanos reasons to rejoice. He has penetrated the Manila art scene, carving a niche for himself among veteran artists the likes of Jose Joya, Onib Olmedo and Pacita Abad.

Later, he founded and led the Neo-tribalism Movement. With a group of ethnic musicians called “Neo-Tribe,” he installed and performed artistic murals on dirty public walls.

Hotel of the year, stellar region

Monday, September 29, 2014 - 05:57 p.m.

It is not surprising why Marco Polo Plaza was named “Hotel of the Year.” The reasons, for me, are obvious: Clean and beautiful ambiance; well-furnished rooms; best food in town; customer friendly; well-trained staff and services. The “cutting edge” is general manager (GM) Hans Hauri, whose stint as GM made the hotel a leader among the various stakeholders, and touched many hearts with his endearing generosity and kindness. Stellar Region

Potty about potted food

Monday, September 29, 2014 - 12:43 p.m.

BEFORE we had the luxury of refrigerators, our forebears had many ways of preserving food, including smoking, pickling, spicing, salting or just simply burying food.

I remember as recently as the 1950s in England before we could afford refs, an aunt had an earthenware pot buried in her garden in which she kept butter and cheese.

Clean hands for good health

Monday, September 29, 2014 - 12:30 p.m.

ONE fine morning, an item in my newsfeed caught my attention: “This world is just a breeding place for contagious germs!”

I must admit I’m a little bit of a germaphobe and I may have a reason to fret. A UNICEF report revealed that some 3.5 million children worldwide die each year from preventable diseases, while almost 10,000 Filipino children under the age of 5 die every day from diarrheal diseases caused by lack of safe water, sanitation and basic hygiene.

Spatial Unity

Sunday, September 28, 2014 - 09:12 p.m.

NO MAN is an island. So is a building or space. Building and the rooms inside them must be designed in such a manner that it maintains that vital connection with the outdoors. The way an architect or interior designer would “zone” rooms and spaces is not just to satisfy efficiency of function in terms of user activity but also to maximize entry of outdoor natural light and ventilation, frame breathtaking views and keep the user of the man-made realm constantly in touch with the natural environment.

Sunday, September 28, 2014 - 08:50 p.m.

SINCE time immemorial, Filipinos have a great penchant for storytelling. From our grandmother’s tales of folklore and myths, to our childhood bedtime stories of fairy tales and happy endings, the fondness for telling and listening to these stories lies in each of us. But of all the stories ever written and told, our favorite tale remains to be the ones that make us sigh and swoon—from the classic slam book question “Who is your first love?” and with Nicholas Sparks putting it into the pages of one of the well-loved romance novels, “Every great love starts with a great story”—stories that touch the romantic in each of us are the ones that are best treasured and remembered.
