Cool off

drink up

No I’m not doing an ad for Starbucks, I just want a cold drink, and these really looked good to me when i was looking through pictures. It’s far too freaking hot for a toffee nut latte, but can you imagine a toffee nut frap right about now? With this sweltering heat that doesn’t go away even at night, I just feel like drinking everything iced and sticking to places with AC.

Or maybe go to the beach.

Oh the beach. How I miss you.

But I would settle for IVs of these or those banana smoothies Ria made last night. Man those were good. With vanilla ice cream, heavenly.

Cold drinks, the savior of the masses.

Starbucks, save your masses with free drinks kay?


Dear New President of the Philippines

I don’t know who you are yet. I am not leaning toward the orange, the yellow, the red, the green, no not yet. I am a voter though and I will be casting mine on Monday, definitely. Who it is, who the final tallies will show, I just ask for a few things.

Please junk the JPEPA. I do not need toxic waste from Japan here. (Sushi definitely, otoro heck yeah, but toxic waste, no)

Please take care of our journalists. I am not one, but I have always admired them.  I would like to think that we are a free country where people’s voices can be heard. When journalists keep ending up dead, those people who just report on what’s happening and not really expressing their opinions, what hope is there for us civilians who want to share their two cents?

Please share the wealth. I know you’re gonna have access to a lot, and i figure, raising minimum wage for people who break their backs for P300+ a day, a couple hundred would mean the world.

Please give the RH bill a chance. I am not pro-abortion or anything to that extreme, but a few pills here and there, condoms for those who cannot afford them and keep having kids, won’t kill them, hunger will. I am anti-kids dying of hunger. A little education about how to not have them everytime they get the urge to boff would be good. Coz heck, you and I both know, you are not getting them to stop doing it. Have you tried searching for “cytotec philippines” on Google lately? They’re gonna do it, and education about the basic stuff will stop them from even considering the killing of a baby. (Thank you Women’s HealthCare Foundation for doing your part on disseminating information where you can)

That’s it. Much luck on the 6 years. Do us proud.


Sunday Magic

the wheel

Spent Sunday indulging my inner kid while trying to keep cool with 2 serial killers, a mad drifter, a mini basketball catcher licker, and a paintball to the crotch victim, and we had a blast.

It was dehydrating, sweltering hot, incredibly wet, exceedingly dusty, but we felt like kids just going around the park looking for the next thrill ride.

Tried Zorbs and felt like hamsters.



Drank half the park’s gatorade.

Learned magic.

Won a mini basketball toy and conceived a drinking game.

Went home after the fireworks (Damn those were nice) and laughed at episodes of Friends.

What a weekend. 😀
