the long weekend that was

Friday: Rika's wedding

Although i was extremely happy for rika, i was really dreading this day. My god you should have seen the gown. It scared the shit out of me and everyone else who had the gift of sight that night.

Anyway, we god to the church just in time. As in "may we call on the veil sponsors maite and someone."

Saturday: The exorcism of the chocolate buffet

Saw this very delightful film with the chums called the exorcism of emily rose. For me, it s right up there with million dollar baby as the fun movie of the year.

Anyway, niv and i were talking about how this poor actress who played emily will probably never get a decent movie offer again (Linda Blair syndrome) Except, of course, kung spoof ang usapan. In which case baka pwedeng...


It can be about a botanist who creates a new rose hybrid na napo-possess ng ibang floral elements.

After the movie, we went to pen for some chocolate buffet. i did not enjoy that.

Sunday: nagpakataba lang ako

Monday: Go go RP Let's go!

I went to the Marikina stadium to support the RP team chick soccer team for SEA Games. May pagkabanban po. 5-1 po ang score natin vs. vietnam. malungkot po ang mga pangyayari.

For over 200 million years, she’s lived through natural disasters and man's insatiable thirst for accessories, aphrodisiacs and gastronomic delicacies. How narcissistic and ambitious of me to think they need me to keep on surviving.

Take also the following into account;

1. We live in a third world country where more than 90% of our people are hungry.
2. Our forests are balding faster than my boss. And
3. The threat of nuclear war is clear and imminent (been watching too many seasons of 24 haven’t I?)

How presumptuous of us to take on a concern that is so first-world such as turtle care.

But everyone and everything needs a champion. And God knows man has championed less worthy causes like womens right to vote and freedom from slavery (hee hee, just kidding.) Anyway, they’re not naman kasi asking for much. Just for you not to wear her or eat her children. And, of course, for you to tell everyone you know and their sons the same thing. So carry na naman diba?

Anyway, Im wearing the title 'PAWIKANEER' proudly because… well because I came up with it.

Photo opps are, of course, always an added bonus.

To sleep, perchance to dream

It's funny how dreaming about someone can completely, though sometimes momentarily, alter the way you see that person.

I remember waking up one morning absolutely furius with joel only to realize two days later that it was because of something he did in a dream.

Yesterday, also because of a dream, i was floating on cloud 9, crushing on a man i hardly know and whose face i barely even remember.

Last night was dreamless. So today I am crushless.

Fuck. So fun pa naman to be kilig.

ika nga ni baz

Sorry but i just crawled out from under a rock and heard this wonderful thing from Baz Luhrman. And since I don't trust either my fallible memory or my common sense to remember to pass this on to my children someday, i am putting it on record here.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99, if I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering experience…I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you


Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..

Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen…

God this is so true!

Face it. Curiosity
will not cause us to die--
only lack of it will.
Never to want to see
the other side of the hill
or that improbable country
where living is an idyll
(although a probable hell)
would kill us all.

Only the curious have, if they live, a tale
worth telling at all.

From Alastair Reid

sana lesbiana-in-the-closet na rin ako

Kasi imagine, when i ladlad myself, ang saya lang siguro non. Parang rebirth.

Im gonna dress up in macho stuff if I choose to or I can remain to be of the lipstick variety. And then i can make porma to girls. Riya i will marry in vermont, Therese I will definitely boink ;) Or maybe i can finally give edessa a call. And also, the banyo, locker room or steam room experience will be completely different and undoutedly more interesting.

Eh ngayon, eto na to. Babae ako. sucks.

Sana may brain talyer...

Kasi kailangan ko na talaga ipatune-up ang akin.

Last saturday, i turned on the tv and caught magandang gabi bayan's horror episode and my first thought was really "huh. bakit horror na eh hindi pa naman holy week?"
