Patalastas muna. Salamat kay Reynz sa kanyang suporta sa isang online patimpalak. Pasensya na, Kamahalan at overaged na pala ang blog ko. Gayunpaman, touched pa rin ako’t nakabilang ako sa original list mo. Tenkyu po!üüü

Tag ito. Tag. Ibig sabihin eh sarili ko na naman ang pag-uusapan dito sa post na ito. Nyayksidudels…
Na-tag ako ni Heleinah (new spelling para cute) ng mga eight things.ü Bakit eight at hindi ten, di ko alam. Siguro, natakot ang original na may pakana ng tag na ito na baka mapagod sa kakaisip ang mga future na mata-tag, medyo binabaan nya ang requirement. 8 things na lang instead of 10 things. Hmmm… merciful!
Anyway, tama na ang dada. Eto na ang Limang Eight Things About Me. Continue reading

Nalalapit na ang paghuhukom sa blogroll ko. Tatanggalin ko na ang mga tila yumao na’t di na muling magpaparamdam. Gayunpaman, ako’y may iaalok na kaligtasan (you: may ganun?!!). Ang sinomang magcomment sa post na ito ay mananatili sa blogroll ko, no questions asked. So magcomment ka na kahit wala ka pang nababasa tutal, katulad nga ng sabi sa title, ito ay “Isang Walang Kakwenta-kwentang Post na Hindi Dapat Pag-aksayahan ng Panahon ng Kahit na Sinuman.”

ang totoo eh wala akong kahilig-hilig sa tag. Gayunpaman, di ko mahindian ang alindog requests nina byutipul Heleyna at ni cutie Eloiski na patusin ang tag na ito na pinamagatang Ten Random Things About Me. Ang gusto pa nga nila eh magpost ako ng candid picture ko dito (isa ring tag yun) pero I care for my readers. Ayokong may masamang mangyari sa inyo kapag nakita nyo ng hitsura ko tulad ng bangungot, empatso, pasma o pagkawala ng ganang kumain (wag naman sanang mangyari sa akin ito, Lord!). Kung di ka interesado sa kabagut-bagot na buhay ni Kuya Utoy eh dumeretso ka na sa comment portion and assure yourself of a place in my blogroll, pero kung likas kang tsismosa eh stay around and read. Mahaba ito so humanda ka.
Ten Random Things About Me… Game. Continue reading

I’m not a big fan of this Kapamilya after-dinner offering but it actually got me hooked for some days along with my brothers in the seminary. I’m talking about this Underworld-meets-My Sassy Girl-meets-Devil-Wears Prada-meets-Wowowee primetime teleserye by ABS-CBN: Lobo.
Lobo, for the benefit of those who denies knowledge of this TV show, is about the endless battle between the lycanthropic Lobos and the trigger-happy Lunas and their untiring obsession with the Pulang Buwan. The Lunas, the self-proclaimed defenders of the world from the Lobos, went very creative in hunting the these shapeshifters by disguising themselves as military men on a highly confidential mission. The Wayas, the white-furred Lobos, went incognito by passing themselves as trend-setting, rave party loving fashionistas (roll your eyes here). Then there’s the Itim na Lobo who love to hang out in empty warehouses, salivate rabidly and apply thick eye liners. These three groups were battling each other in a highly believable manner though really, what do these soldiers have against fashionistas?
Ths show apparently tried to extend its lifespan (and its claim for sponsorship) as since two weeks ago, the Pulang Buwan has already risen and still, there’s about a week more of episodes coming this July. Huh? But it doesn’t matter. To the seminarians on this part of the world, what’s important is that Lyka (played by the byutipul Angel Locsin) changes into Lobo and into human again and hope there will be substantial camera exposure to go with it. Why is this important? Go figure it out yourself.

Sunday last week, the members of all our communities in the Philippines gathered for its annual weeklong retreat in Tagaytay. For all heathens out there, the retreat is the funniest moment in a religious’s life where all the worst characters in Bahay ni Kuya Jesus gather together in one building for a few days of prayer and intrigue. I was so excited to tell about all it since last Sunday that we arrived and then… and then… just this afternoon, I saw the trailer of the movie of one of my favorite Catholics of all time: the ever-prayerful, rosary-bearing, martyriology-savvy, relic-collecting, pizza-eating, gauntlet-wearing, stoge-smoking, de-horned demon, Hellboy. I’m speechless. I’m dumbfounded. I’m napatunganga with open bunganga. All I can think of now is that dimunyu who is of the color of itlog na maalat, his hot (blueflame-hot) girlfriend and the fishman that speaks Yoda-nese. The most I can do at the moment is to upload these dumb pics I took at Tagaytay as I… I… I must… Must watch Hellboy2… Must see this movie… Must make Minghela shrine… <<tulo-laway>>
