porfirioness \p(o)-rfi-rio, por-firio ness\ – being of purple coloring, from porfirio, a boy’s name of Greek origin.
From my second name Porfirio, Porfirioness will chronicle the lifestyle and society scene of Metro-Iloilo and hereabouts. It is an offshoot of my long running column “At the Bat of an Eyelash…”
“At the Bat of an Eyelash…” is my society column since 1988. It also reports on the fashion happenings of Metro-Iloilo.
Porfirioness will encapsulate both scenes, along with other lifestyle experiences, namely culinary, travel, wellness, entertainment and arts.
