An ICON died yesterday.
Not only did he marked this world as the “Master Rapper” among other things he was proud to be PINOY! I have been reading his journals in Multiply getting inspirations and strengths  continuing fighting his happy battle.
I saw my husband shed a tear for the second time yesterday. The news came as a shock for us, thought it was a joke coming from mukamo.com but then I checked chuvaness (who’s a good friend of the Magalonas) and it was confirmed.

We are expecting to see him perform tonight at the Eraserheads Concert. I guess we would have to wait for the Sickos Project CD to hear him sing again.

I guess news touched a soft part on my heart. Yesterday I learned that my colleague’s husband have prostate cancer and with Nanay battling the breast cancer herself, I could not help but realize that the big “C” is indeed very real.  I have been tough through Nanay’s battle and want to stay that way, I can see thru her eyes that she’s drawing her energy from me and my siblings so we have to be strong.

Today is Tatay’s bday, and I regret that I can’t go home today but don’t worry Tatay we will have a blast tomorrow. I will kiss and hug you for I love you both.
