Archive for September 14th, 2019


On my way home from SM Megamall where I bought a bottle of Vitamin D, I chanced upon this freshly harvested cassava and bought more than a kilo. I’ve always craved for this when it is in season. Cooked simply boiled in coconut cream, it is so yummy.

Are some of you familiar with this? I wonder if it is also grown in other Asian countries like ours. Some also make cassava cake out of this. But that is more difficult to do than simply boiling it.

Oh my, I just finished my 106th book for this year’s Goodreads challenge. Only 14 more books to go then I am done. It’s been a while since I read a biography. Most that I encountered were memoirs, written by the authors themselves. This one is about the life of an unknown Kennedy and her struggles.

Knowing more about the Kennedys. This time a daughter who was hidden from the world because of mental illness. When I read the book Johnny We hardly Knew Ye a long, long time ago, I was fascinated by JFK’s political career and it was a good read. Rosemary was loved by her family, she was given all those choiced schools and caregivers so she could live a life close to normal. She reached a ripe old age of 86. It was nice reading about how the Kennedys survived the ordeal of having a mentally challenged daughter compared to her gifted and intelligent siblings.

Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter

She was the oldest daughter born to Joseph Kennedy, Sr. and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, sister to Pres. John F. Kennedy and to the senators Robert and Ted Kennedy. She was intellectually disabled and had a separate schooling from other students.

I’ve always been an admirer of the Kennedy clan and  I enjoyed looking at all the pictures included in the biography.

One good read for this year’s challenge.
