Sage speaks
Curiously, for a child conceived in Hong Kong, born in Manila, and currently being brought up by two American-English-speaking parents and one nanny from Zamboanga, Sage's speech pattern shows distinctly Singaporean influences. Word examples include: "circle-lah", "Mommy-lah", "shark-a-lah", and "Daddy-lah".

On the other hand, she seems to have graduated from the pronunciations "moy" and "kai" to the more commonly-accepted "more" and "car". Apparently, she was having some trouble with the ending consonant 'r'. And here I thought she was just a really big Angel Ace fan.

Nikki freaks
Once again, I may have bitten off more than I can chew. By mid-next week, I'm scheduled to complete one TV script treatment, one comic book script, copy for several unified banners for a trade exhibit, the edited revision for another comic book script, and the redesign of a friend's blog template. Oh, and I ought to get cracking on some stuff for the Palanca awards, too.

Damn me and my overweening arrogance! But I'll manage. Somehow.

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
