Hello. I’m Connie Veneracion.

Connie VeneracionIt’s tempting to simply ask that you Google “Connie Veneracion” or “Sassy Lawyer” or “Pinoy Cook” and have this page done with. But that might give you the wrong idea about me. A third of what’s been written about me is true, a third is half-true and the rest consists of drug-induced hallucinations. I suppose I’d better let me, rather than them, tell you about me.

Okay, that’s me in the photo above.

I’m a mother of two, Samantha (Sam) and Alexandra (Alex), who are photocopies of me.

No, we don’t have a “Clover” to complete the Totally Spies trio. However, we do have a Penny, a Twix, a Pepper and Pepper’s kittens and grandkittens. And there’s Mr. Turtle too.

I am the wife of a guy who was nicknamed Speedy by his mother for reasons I may never comprehend.

I am a lawyer by profession (retired now), a newspaper and magazine columnist by accident (retired now, too) and the only daughter of a lawyer and a lawyer. I am also the sister of a lawyer who is an only son. Read the paragraph again. You’ll get it sooner than later.

Retired and retired? Why? Well, why not? There’s so much to explore in life — why get stuck doing the same things for a lifetime?

In the fourth quarter of 2014, I became About.com’s Southeast Asian Food expert.
