If we're all so unhappy about our political leaders, and we're constantly looking (sometimes even demanding) for "change" and "something new", then why the hell not?!
I don't know about you, but there's nothing more politically/sociologically-changing than this. :D
Ha. And they (our governmentS) say they've already "tried everything"...
Too bad the chances of that ever happening here in the third world is...pretty much slim-to-none. We're all prudes. We're even led by one. :P

CTP, on the other hand, is one of those lucky ones. And unlike celebrities and most socialites, she's not hated by half of the world. She is actually loved.
Awww...go get your own Kleenex, I'm not sharing. *envy, then sniffle*
Her birthday bash last night was amazing, and so chi-chi that I had to recall all those etiquette lessons my mother persistently (and frustratingly) shoved on my puny little mind while I was growing up, in less than 30 seconds upon stepping out of the elevator of Ayala Life FGU Center (Cebu Business Park) to their roof deck.
Please excuse the crappy photos. We were all inebriated to the point of happily-skipping all over the place...literally. We were too drunk to care, and so was everybody else in the party. Even the waiters were suspiciously happy. Everyone was happy. CP has that effect on people. Or maybe it was just the really expensive free food and liquor? Hmm...
"Oh look! There's a ledge!"...stupidity slowly arises
"I wonder if my phone breaks if I drop it?"
"No stupid, it won't. You think Spiderman gets vertigo?"
"I don't think so coz he likes *slurrrr* takes Cryptonite vitamins or something and Cap 'n Crunch for breakfast to like get strong 'n shit"
"Look! SM! I need sneakers, but they all *burp* suck!"
(It's actually Ayala Centre.)
"Duddddeee, you think somebody might get hit if I pee here?"
--from a dumbass who should know better.
All in all, it was one hell of a party. And to Miss CP, I wish you only the best in life, love and wea...stop, do you even still need anything?! ;)
Hell, on my last birthday, I had two cups of my usual at Starbucks, two packs of cigarettes, a burger, a small pack of M&M's and an SMS from my driver asking me if he could extend his vacation. Asswipe.

Probably the latter.
Apparently, it's not just their internet that's fucked. It's their entire communications network. Hip hip...? HURRAY!!!
And the nerve of them calling me...and everyone else, over and over again asking for my late payment. Four fucking days overdue, you Globelines retards!
Errr...wait, I should just pay my bills. But the crappy (not to mention...rude) service is just not helping my good-client-need-to-pay-ontime mood.
Tuesday, September 19, 2006
Besides, having crawling-speed internet does have its good points. While waiting for your page to load, you can use the waiting time for say, resting your eyes...to prevent blindness. You can have short breathing exercises...to improve oxygen intake. You can maybe go pee, drink a glass of water, or eat. Or whatever it is that we people who spend too much time on the internet than in the real world. Yep, that's a "we" right there.
A toast to all of us who can't afford hi-speed internet...but at least we're full, somewhat-healthy, okay-vision, and don't have UTI.
So earlier, I got a visit from two other very-unsatisfied Globelines account holders. :D BB and CC wanted to "hang" and pester me with all their internet woes. *Yakyakyakkityyak* Like I didn't have enough Globelines-issues to talk about. I even threw their free landline phone out the garage out of utter frustration. If that's not showing my love, I don't know what is. Besides, the phone was free (it comes with the line, I guess)...and crappy. If it were Bang & Olufsen, I would've hesitated (but would probably still do it).
I, on the other hand, just wanted to stuff my face with anything...err, edible. I thought I still had one of those edible soaps lying around somewhere. But apparently, I'm too much of a pig to save even that.
We carpooled (hello skyhigh gas prices, I can only wish you'd die) to Banilad Town Centre to have lunch, but parking was a bitch. It took us less than ten minutes to get to BTC, and more than half an hour to find a parking slot. At 12 noon, BTC is like this mid-sized college Quad. Half of which, are obnoxious UC-Banilad nursing students (not all of you, just...most) *teehee* running around BTC like they own the place. The other half of the BTC mid-day population are the oh-so-serious-but-rich-as-hell Class AAA (like the batteries?) mums out and about while the hubbies are working and the kids aren't wrecking their prized Lladros...just yet.
So, instead of testing how far our patience could go what with all these people screaming (seriously) all over, we just had our food to-go. We're big on take-out food. Nothing beats chomping goooood food inside the car squatting on your seat without worrying about etiquette. *chompchompchomp*
I always seem to forget to take photos before raping my food.
And no, I did not touch this one before photographing. It just looks like that --already chewed up and barfed out, but it's actually pretty...okay. A little too "bland" (yo chef, what's with the bacon?!) for my taste, but "ok" nevertheless.
I already had a sandwich and a mid-sized order of pasta...I had enough sense to "make it up" to my non-existent diet to save what's left of my nearly-Miss Piggy face. The cake is boring, but moist enough. You could see the remains of air bubbles all over...maybe because of the lack of butterfat (?), but surprisingly good.
This is actually CC's all-time favourite drink. And I now know why. It's so goooood, I want to hate it. It's one of those things that locks your brain from counting the calories after one fucking sip...and whine about the bloating later.
This was taken less than TWO minutes after getting into the car. It's that hot out here in Cebu.

I think I now just might know how to speak Korean, Japanese (?)...or is it Niponggo (bah)?...and Chinese --both Mandarin and Cantonese. :P I think I've even memorized a few lines in some of the songs...and sang them out loud. In public. Pfft...
Globelines is still fucked, so no photos for you all today. I do promise a shitload of photos in the upcoming weeks. And so does CC and BB. We've been bombarding the Globelines customer service people with our complaints, it's almost harrassment. Ha.
If all our efforts fail, we'll just have to take further actions...like cry in public. Bombing them would only make things worse. I already paid my access in full until the end of the fucking year, I better be getting the service I deserve...especially since paying bills is at the topmost of my list of things I'd rather hang myself than do.
I am sooo not in the right mind to write anything decent right now, and the mood's worse. I just logged in to Blogger to post this video a friend emailed.
Watch it. Live it. Learn it.
As the famous Bryanboy would say, "Keep the faggotry alive!!!"...just be sure to be safe. ;)

...or they could probably just be testing my patience.
Things that make you go, "hmmmmmm..."
Bah. No worries, at least we all got to unwind and break free from blogging. I still haven't been bit by the blogging bug though. I'm neither enslaved...or enthusiastic still about blogging. But I have discovered its "therapeutic powers". I don't know if that's just a lot of bull, or if it's actually true...(probably the former), but hey, I'm still doing it. So it must be worth at least something.
...and I still don't know whether I should be happy about that or not. Puta...all these "whether"s are making my head hurt. My I.Q. is just too low for this...*stupid twat*
My best consolation is that I get to have acceptable-excuse for taking dumbass photos with my cameraphone of anything and everything random --some interesting, and the rest are just stupid. But you'll still read them. :D
BB and I planned on having lunch earlier at Ginza. For some reason, it's been our favourite Japanese restaurant in Cebu over the years. Although, we frequent Saisaki at SM more because of their less-than-$10-eat-all-you-can, and we're broke half of the time. :D But when the wallet permits it, we turn on our snob-button, and it's Ginza-swipe-abuse-all-the-way! Ha. Seriously though, Ginza's not that expensive. Well, it's no Nobu, if that's what you're thinking. But the food is good, that's all I know. When your stomach's already churning bile and you're seconds-close to fainting, believe me, you won't give a fuck about interior and ambience either!
Unfortunately, when we got there, the place was unusually packed. Probably some Hawaiian-shirt-conference, I don't know. I could only wish I had enough sense to take photos, because it was a such a colorful sight. Probably even more so than your local exotic-bird sanctuary. I have yet to work on my paparazzi skills. Soon, soon...
So we stayed at the parking lot, called to order, and waited for our Jap-to-go inside the car...for just a little over 15 minutes. Hey, that's pretty fast for cuisine-takeout. McDonald's Drive-thru here even make me wait for almost half an hour for ONE fucking Big Mac.
I just had two orders of ebi tempura and some deep-fried tofu. That's it. Three orders of deep-fried goodness and saturated fat. Mmm...
I forgot to take photos of the tofu though...but what difference does it make anyway? You all know what tofu looks like! :P
gotta love all that foil...klassy.
Beat that, Nobu! Haha!
Not exactly Ginzalicious *sob*, but an okay alternative nevertheless...
What, I only had enough money left for commercial Chinese after ordering all that overpriced tofu!

I nearly had a car accident just taking this photo, so you better appreciate my efforts! :P
Ok, don't (appreciate the photo *teehee*). And don't take photos while driving. Texting, talking, eating, drinking, snorting coke, smoking weed, etc. is ok...just don't take photos. Because I didn't do any of those. So if ever you do, and get into a car accident, you can't blame me shit. ;)Or if you'll already be too dead to tell on me, and someone else tells your mother/father/grandparents/whatever...I don't want them blaming me for your sorry mishap. Besides, I'd rather deal with you in the flesh. You'll be either be too weak or too dead to fight back anyway. Mourning family members are such a pain to deal with. You, I might be able to smack, but not your grandmother. I'm not that big of a bitch! ;)
I swear, whoever invented cameraphones is a god to me. Had I used my real camera, I would've crashed...and there weren't even any other cars on the road. Just me and the pig hitching on a Multicab. With my amaaaazing driving skills, I could've actually gotten myself killed.
I risked my life to share this photo. The things people do for the sake of their blogs when there's nothing else better to write about in their pathetic lives...sigh.
Anybody up for a piggyback ride? ;)
Note to self: Print out this photo and carry it with you 24/7. Hopefully, it'll curb any kind of urge to eat...if you get hospitalized, it's ok. There's always dextrose. You'll live. And by the time you get out of the hospital, you'll be thin...enough. Ha!

It's on right now...on ABS-CBN. Or to you all, on TFC...if you have TFC.
You have to have TFC...how would your housekeepers maintain their sanity while you're all out to work and school??
Go ahead, watch it. It's not fun, but it's informative.
And be prepared to listen to more stories about how "bigtime" Filipinos really are. It's not just about Allan Pineda, that girl from the Pussycat Dolls, Batista, Rob Schneider, and Lou Diamond Phillips (huh? who??) anymore...now, it's about freakin' terrorists.
I'm too bored to make sense right now. Oh just watch the damn show. DO IT.

And now, I'm blogging.
Great. Pfft...didn't I just convince myself that my life is pretty good compared to the millions of dying children in oh, I don't know...Lahug? Then why am I being such a bitch about this??
So, in celebration of living in the third world, and be surrounded by severe depression everywhere (seriously, everywhere --parking lots and the "yamada kids", it's not even funny), CP and I decided to have dinner at The Tinder Box. We were broke as hell. Why we even thought of dining at such an overpriced restaurant...and why I was the one who suggested the place, is beyond me. Why am I home right now blogging instead of washing dishes? Because we have our mothers' supplementary gold cards. And yes, we are bad, bad children, we should both be ashamed of ourselves...go get your own life.
Besides, I don't spend much on anything else anyway. And eating out has been my biggest expense lately next to gourmet (by that I mean not of the instant variety that I want to get used to. Starbucks is considered "gourmet" for third-world standards) coffee and cigarettes, so it's all good.
We both had the lamb, as always. I think the kitchen people have already branded us as the "Lamb Twins" since that's all we've ever ordered for years. And we still like it every single time. Because they make it just as good as the last time. Oh come on, it's not like the usual adobo that you feel like puking out after the third serving in a week. It's prime meat babe, can't argue with that.
As you might have noticed (might??) in the photo, I've already started chomping on my dish before photographing, because I am a pig with poor table manners, and not much patience especially when you've waited for sooo long for your food to be served, so excuse me. I was sooo hungry, I'm still surprised I didn't gnaw on the plate!
Ooo...does this mean I actually have manners? Ahh...there is hope. ;)
We ate at their main dining area because we were dressed like hobos. Good luck wearing those Cavalli shorts and Prada slip-ons, they won't care. You're not getting in the private room. :P Besides, it was just the two of us having dinner on a Friday night, why would we bother getting into their oohlala room anyway? We're no high-profiler having a luxe dinner with the mistress. We don't need privacy. :D For the fucking bill we paid, we should've hooked up a megaphone on the roof of the car and screamed, "We just ate at Tinder Box!!!", for crying out loud.
Lesson learned for tonight: Eating/staying/lounging/etc. at any place that charges major $$$ (again, third-world) without your sponsors --i.e. parents, is not an entirely pleasant experience.
It is...until the bill comes, anyway.
No wonder all these annoying yappers at Bo's or Starbucks keep on dropping "high-class" establishment names an average of 6 times/minute. It is apparently a big deal. And I had to go through the (yes, painful) experience of having to actually look at the eye-popping bill just to be able to get it. I am telling you, it is harsh paying...with your own money! :)
Oh well...in the end, it really doesn't matter how much you pay (but only if you can really afford it). It's all about the dining experience (which is always great). You enjoy a good meal, and in turn, have some real expensive poop. Isn't life just beeeautifuulll? ;)

As a kid, I've always adored George Reeves, even though the only time I've ever watched the man perform was on the Superman television series...on Betamax. :) I didn't know what became of him after that. But then again, we didn't have Perez Hilton then, did we? :) I didn't even know he had died long before I was even born. Ahh...those days wherein movie stars were just that. Movie stars. Come to think of it, I still thought he was alive and well up until this article from the New York Times!
I'm just as enthused about this movie as the rest of the fashionable lot is crazy about "The Devil Wears Prada". The reviews so far, has been positive. They even hinted on the probability of Afleck winning an Oscar. I could care less about awards, really. I just want to watch the damn movie.
Besides, any reason to see Ben Afleck get fat..ter to wear spandex and a cape. Daredevil had nothing on (literally) old Superman! Haha.
*giggle* I said "pianist". ;) Dude, I am such a retard! :)
Sic, sic twat...

My great lack of intelligence and even worse E.Q. compensates in a way by producing massive amounts of "brain chemicals" (duhhhh) that releases this crazy, spoiled, and hungry NEED to have the things that I...well, think I need.
All from HAANSPREE!! I lovvee Hannspree!! I actually cried when my dogs broke my HS 10" LCD TV. Which is why I'm only posting these remote controls. Aside of course from the fact that these are way cheaper than the TVs, and I can actually still afford them, despite my current financial crisis. :D
You think I should shell off $400 on another LCD TV? Because I'm seriously considering it. Christ, why was I not breastfed as a child?! Maybe if I were, I wouldn't be this materially neurotic.
Wait, I think I still would be.

Gawad Kalinga (GK) , translated in English means “to give care,” and it is
an alternative solution to the blatant problem of poverty not just in the
Philippines but the world. Its approach is integrated, holistic and sustainable
– a concrete action plan to rebuild this nation by harnessing the best of the
Filipino – our faith and our patriotism.
The transformation is astounding. Slums are disappearing. Rich and poor,
Muslims and Christians, government and the private sector are building
communities together. The poor are re-discovering their dreams, and are being
empowered to build a better future for their families. The stories of how not
only the poor but also the donors have been transformed continue to grow.
Gawad Kalinga’s achievements are a reflection of the sharing among different
classes in society, and the partnership involving all sectors of society –
bridging the gaps that divide us as a people. We are also building International
Villages, showing that poverty can be addressed if rich and poor nations learn
to share resources to create a better world for all.
I still believe that the poor should work their way up, and not expect the world to save their asses and believe people with money with money should be obligated to give just because they're oh-so-poor. Because that's just stupid...and useless.
But if you have the means to just help them get started on getting a life...then it's worth it.
It's never about giving up your lifestyle and sign up to feed the dying HIV children in Africa and wear khaki shorts forever. It's not about giving up shopping for that overpriced designer item you've long saved up for. It's not about staying in on a borrriinngg Saturday night just because of them.
It's not about obligation, it's about choice. It's not so bad to give back. We already have too much junk anyway. How much shoes can you wear in a lifetime anyway, right? ;)

And the geniuses who came up with the idea still haven't called to send in their contributions for the latest posts. So for now, it's just BB and I clamoring to find material for the new site. You really don't have much of a choice, so deal with it. Haha.
I have to admit though, the research part is actually quite fun. Check out my latest find. Aren't they just purrty? ;)
I really hope you guys could check it out and support the new blog. I've been steering away from my bed, my couch, and my remote just because of that. :) Oh well, at least I'm actually doing something. Because my reputation for my incompetence has exceeded all of my expectations and nobody would hire me for a real job. :(
Bah...who cares? I don't want to work for some stuck-up-feeling-all-corporate-bitch of a boss, or a pretentious jerk who feels he's all that anyway. I, who's sorely jobless, have more than his annual but-oooh-"corporate" salary. Pfft...Bitch, please.
What is with this current craze disease Filipino mentality that you just have to exert 1000% more effort in "building an image" and "looking superior/rich" than actual concentration on their JOBS? The jobs that actually fucking fuel their oh-so-precious lifestyle!
Sigh...anybody needs a housemaid? I honestly would rather be just that, than a fucking Med Rep who thinks she's all that. You know who you are.
Seriously, hire me! I'll wash the dishes, and sweep the floors. I now know how to do both. Just don't make me do your dirty laundry though...and cook. I can't do both even if my life depended on it.
Either that, or just support the site. :) DO IT!
I couldn't stand the other two, so I decided to post just these:

Whatever, and however you might feel about the Philippines, it doesn't really matter. ;)
I may not be one to go around the city (let alone the whole nation) and join protest rallies against...well, anything. And I may not be a Filipino that my country and people would be proud of --past, present, and probably the future, as well. In fact, I'm actually not a good citizen at all. I don't support the administration. I could care less about the opposition. I bitch about the system. I rant about the economy. I sass about the (modern) culture. I embrace the order of other nations, and I can never seem to run out of justifications to leave this country at least twice a year.
I am not a good Filipino...but damn it, I AM ONE.
So let me just scream to the world how ecstatic I am to have found out that two of my favorite things in the world, sneakers and the Philippine flag, have been hybridized:
Aren't they just purrty? :D Well, for Filipinos, dapat lang noh!
First it was Tim Yap's limited-edition wristwatch, now this. We should all be so happy Pinoys. :D
There's already too much Brazil and Jamaica in the market! After having all those OFWs scattered all over the globe, there's got to be at least ONE of you out there who's for
Nike, Puma, Adidas, etc... SPEAK UP TO YOUR BOSSES YOU BROWN NOSERS!
Stand up for the third world!
We all know that hardly anybody believes in Ninoy's "The Filipinos are worth dying for..." anymore, but come on people! Nobody's asking you to die for them...just push that flag to your bosses and hopefully let them see the potential! ;) You never know, if you actually get a nod, it could be the biggest break you've ever had. It'll be life-changing for you, and for all of us. And if it doesn't really work out and call you, "stupid", well...tough luck. Not my problem. ;) The fact that you actually took my advice, could probably mean you really are. :D
Seriously, the only reason why I'm pushing this so hard is because of the fact that these Air Force One's were released on July 2006, with only 500 pairs dropped worldwide. And retailed at only $245, the chances of me actually getting my hands on a pair is slim to none. So because I am frustrated as hell after hours of searching for a pair for sale online and got nothing, I am pushing you people to do your part to make a difference. To give our country a little bit of its pride back...and to give ME back my shallow and materialistic happiness for a day, or two. ;)

It's official, Carolyn Kephcher of The Apprentice has been fired. :-D
"She became a prima donna," a presumably close, unnamed "insider" told the
newspaper. "She was giving speeches for $25,000 and doing endorsements."
Way to go, advisor and business role model... ;) You just work for "The Donald" Carolyn, you're not exactly in his league already to be acting like that. Tsk... ;)
I've watched the show a few times before, and I always thought Kephcher seemed a bit arrogant...but I never thought she was that big of a bitch in real life.
Whatever, I'm at a plateau right now and my life is boring. Too boring actually, that I'm writing about someone nobody really gives a fuck about. Even I don't care, but see, I'm taking time to write about her. Ahhh...twat!!

I still don't know what it is with me and loud shoes. I can wear like all bland white or black from head to...ankle, and inject it with super loud footwear. Haha.
Wall Street Journal reports that Paramount Pictures has recently just ended their 14-year relationship with Tom Cruise's production company. Why? How the hell should I know? I'm a nobody, and every being in this universe (aliens, included) knows him.
I'll pick out two outfits, one which is disgusting and one nice and I'll ask my
'friend' what they think. If they go for the revolting one, I cut them out of my
life. --Paris Hilton
On the other side of the gene pool...
Nicky Hilton has previewed her Nicky O South Beach Hotel, complete with candy-pink cardboard proposals to the investors. You would think she could afford to actually hire some high school dropout to at least whip up a PowerPoint presentation. But no, she's special. And she's smart. And she's got skills. And she want to prove to the world that she's more than just...that (or simply normal).
Sigh...lesser evil, I guess.
US Weekly reports Britney Spears blatantly insulted Jessica Simpson after politely saying, "HELL NO!" when JS asked if she could kiss BS' bump.
Ahh...having a net-worth of a gazillion dollars really doesn't insure you class and finesse, does it? ;) All the Vuitton in the world won't make her look any less of the trailertrash she's (apparently) always been.
I lurve showbiz. ;) There's always something nasty to expect. ;) It helps make the world go round, the world go round, lalalala.
On Philippine economy...
Last Friday, there was a rollback on gas prices. 1-peso rollback on all fuel products. Great, does that mean we can now all forget the 8-peso price increase since January this year? I don't even want to talk anymore...Forget bragging about your car. We might as well just start bragging we can actually afford gas, period!
On Philippine politics...
You've read the paper, you've heard the news (over, and over again)...it still sucks. 'nuff said.
On updating blog posts...
I just want to enjoy my night and forget I lost the chargers to my phone and my camera. Not to mention that thing you plug in to your USB port to upload photos. But then again, the reason I even posted anything tonight was to forget that little detail.
Nevertheless, I have more things to be happy about. At least I still have a cameraphone. And I have an unlimited supply of Yakult, soy milk and caramel puffs.
Same old, same old...

Sometimes I never cease to amaze myself on how much of a dumbass I really am. I finally decided to get out of my own hellhole of a "house" yesterday, fully expecting to have a "good day". But ahhh...our little molerat-faced president has apparently declared it a National Holiday. Great. Just my luck...
I have no interest in politics in general, and I'm not siding with anybody in particular in our fucked up third world-system. All I know is, my mother is a taxpayer, I have a green passport, and since they said this is a "free country", I will sass and bitch when I want about whomever I want to...and right now, it's holymoleygloria. No reason in particular. I just don't like her. Simple. Besides, it doesn't take for me to be oh-so-caring-for-the-masses, or smart enough to understand the constitution to see that this country is not Jollibee-happy. And if the people aren't happy, they do bad things. Say, like, forget common decency, and in turn, affects me directly. Yes, it's all about meeeee....;) Hahaha.
For someone who doesn't work and go to school, I hate holidays. Traffic's always bad. Everyone's out. Everyone's enjoying. Everyone's happy...but me. Yes, I am a selfish twat! ;) Me, me, me, me...
So why is it a "National Holiday" again? Ninoy Aquino's death anniversary.
His famous line? "The Filipinos are worth dying for".
After having said that, he got assasinated. Coincidence, or conspiracy? Oooh...
I don't get that though...if Marcos was smart enough to have conned an entire nation to be under his rule for like, 20 years...how could he have made such a stupid decision and buried all that work by killing your sworn enemy? Nobody's that stupid. Hell, I can't even con the school security guard back in grade school into letting me sneak out of school, and everybody knew how much I hated him...but I was smart enough even then to know not to kill him. Because I would get blamed for it.
I wonder...WAS IT REALLY MARCOS WHO HAD AQUINO KILLED?
Year 2006: Are Filipinos still worth dying for?
Things that make you go, "hmmm..."
And all that rambling was caused by one disappointing trip to the local Starbucks *tee hee* due to unbearable traffic...both human and vehicular.

The drop isn't exactly massive, but hey, a discount is a discount. ;) And to be honest, as broke as I am, I'm still willing to shell out even three times the original price for this piece. Why, because I'm an idiot.
That's the thing though...after the Mini Cooper messenger got sold out, then they feature this? Unfortunately, even without the matching bag, I still want this...badly. To the point of categorizing it as a necessity, rather than branding it as "a reward" for all the stress I've been getting lately. And I don't even work! One can only imagine how far my mental deterioration will go when and if I actually find something productive to do with my life. Haha.
In short, I NEED THIS...and everything else that has jumped from my list of "wants" to my now-so-long list of priorities.
Amazing how easily we can decide on the most ridiculously shallow things...but ahh, we are afterall, only human. ;)
So now the dilemma is, which ones to eliminate to make space on my horrid list of priorities?
- "NEW FRIDGE"? --there's always that big old Coleman trunk of an outdoor cooler.
- what about "NEW MICROWAVE"? --I'll make do with my rusty old oven toaster. Afterall, I mainly just use it for popcorn.
- and "REAL STOVE"? --my portable camping burner will do just fine for another year, or so...besides, I can't cook even if my life depended on it.
These are only three examples on my list. They're not so important, right? Well, they are under the "needs" box...but I already said that about the Paul Smith pouch. If I remember right, I even told CP that it's so important, it's more important than water...and enumerated all the things I could use it for. Half of which, I didn't even believe. And every single excuse, spontaneously made-up.
Come to think of it, if I eliminate all three items listed above, I could only afford two items in exchange --a pouch, and a pair of shoes that I also put under "PRIORITY A".
So it's: a new fridge, microwave, and stove vs. a pouch, and a pair of sneakers...
Wait, I think I could actually pull this off. I'll buy the pouch, and the sneakers, then just steal a fridge, a microwave oven, and a gas stove from my mother's house. Haha.

Not unless some Filipino-Chinese millionaire sets his mind on building some new talk-of-the-town, I refuse to go out.
I refuse to talk.
And I refuse to blog.
I seriously need to get with the program, and get myself a life other than driving around Cebu looking for a decent happyhoo, end up at some generic cafe only to find myself sass and bitch about random passersby...the innocent, and the totally deserving.
Oh yes, people do that. I do that. And you know you probably do too.
Somebody please give me a reason to get OUT...NOW!
...and of course, be back after a month, max. I just need to see Cebu in a fresher light.

One of their trivia questions was:
Answer: SOUTH KOREANS/South Korea
Fucking a...not again!!
That was 12 hours ago, and I still can't get it off my mind. And I still don't know whether or not I should be giddy knowing my fucked up obsession with Lee Dong-Wook is coming back...or already has. Probably the latter.
Second issue: I don't know whether or not I should be happy knowing he's apparently a horny goat. Well, he does come from a statistically-horny breed, so most probably...he is. Or I should be terrified since I've been so fucking frigid since God-knows-when.
Wong-Dook! The horny goat...the horniest goat you'll see...lalalalala
No, I just can't be scared. I should be grateful he's horny, shouldn't I? Hell, I should be clawing up the walls, I'm so happy (and crazy)! Damn, my hormones really are all over the place!
Half of Asia's already going gaga over the guy, I'm not going to be more retarded than I already am and not feel happy about that little factoid.
all photos from collage are from K-pop forums. What, it was for "research" purposes! (don't you dare snicker...)
Hermes White Leather "Loop" Boots $520
Hermes White Leather "Kick" Sneakers $552
They both retail for about US$600+...but well, it's Bluefly.
Roughly converted to PhP 30,000+. Damn, I need to make some money...fast!
I have a penchant for sneakers...because I waddle like a pregnant trannie when in heels. And like a dinosaur on PMS in 4-inch stilettos. Besides, my youth serum is drying up fast...I need to exploit it as much as I can before I wake up one morning realizing I'm already 30, and it's no longer cute. I'll have plenty of time to learn how to look human in heels by then.
These babies are just purrrfect. The white, the H-orange, the punched leather...as CC would say, ahlaveit!!

I ate, I read, watched a little television, and basically chillaxed the entire day...oh, and the deepest sleep I've had in a couple of years.
But whatever...the important thing is I got to do something I've never done before. To work... all on my own *beams with pride like a 6-year old who just tied her first shoelace*. Haha. Seriously, no help whatsoever, no maids, nada. I think I was posessed or something. Haha.
I'm not really done yet, but give me a break, I have a lot of crap in my backroom. After years of hoarding (and never using), I've amassed a seriously dysfunctional collection of bric-a-bric. But hey, I found a few nifty things as well. Most, quite embarrassing to post. Ahihi.
I found a pair of slip-on sneakers that I don't ever recall buying. Maybe back in my heyday of swiping abuse? Probably. Especially since they're two sizes larger than mine. :P
But what surprised me the most was how ooooooooohhhhsooooocomfortable they are to wear. Seriously, it was like walking on...nougat! Wait, nougat?? Bahh...whatever. Rich, soft, velvettyyy...It was wonderful! Not exactly the prettiest shoes in the world...or my own shoerack, for that matter, but I could care less. It was looovvveely. ;) I've heard of this brand, Merrell, before. But I wasn't very familiar with the brand. Now, all I could even think of is buying a truckload of Merrell.
I went to Gloria Jeans Coffee at Banilad Town Centre for some coffee to go, wearing these babies. (shoutout to Miss LPE!! Lookie mi shoes!!) Because the moment I slipped them on, I couldn't take them off...eventhough they were slipping from my foot everytime I took a step because they were too big for me. Haha.
I was the new Bozo...sans the big red bow on my neck. Balding head, kinky blue hair, big red nose and ear-to-ear smile, I already have. :P
As the day progressed, I got less and less excited and motivated. Especially after seeing all the mess I've made around mid-afternoon. I'm such a dork. I initially intended to organize, and not the other way around. Tsk!
Oh well, I better hit the sack so I can finish my dirty deeds (literally) early tomorrow morning. Because I don't want people in this household to find out I'm actually worthless once they find my backroom in total disarray. Wait, they already know that. Well, I just want to surprise them, and be praised later on, and milk the new-found attention for all its worth. ;)
Yaya!! Bacon...thank you!

There I was, trying seriously hard to doze off--even to the point of counting imaginary sheep (seriously), and they SNORE within barely two minutes after climbing up in MY bed? Ok, just one dog snores. The prettiest of the lot. If she were human, she'd be disappointing men from all over. Pretty to look at, lovely to hold, hell to sleep (literally, of course) with. ;)
So I've been losing sleep for the last three days already because of the silliest things. But ahh...I forget, I am a twat. ;)
You all know it's rainy season here. Within a month, two major storms struck, killing a handful of people, and destroying millions worth of properties, and agriculture. But the worst thing that happened, was one of my favorite pairs of shoes got molested by a nasty nasty puddle of goo.
Which in turn, have made me decide that I need some serious rain gear people...
I'd go for the Classic, between these two checks. The Novacheck looks...wrong, for some reason. Maybe because there's a gagillion counterfeit Burberry out there. You could easily find something exactly like this at the nightmarket in Jordan, Hong Kong for definitely less than USD130!! Haha.
Burberry Tall Rain Boot $165
Now these, I like. They're simple, and unpretentious, and in short...hypocritical and scared to show their true narcissism. ;)But, I'm actually considering these loud wellies. I'm predicting a dreary disposition for the rest of the year, so I would probably need major doses of attention.
And these would be enough to get those confused stares *complete with perfectly-"O" mouths, for full effect* from traditional Chinese businessmen, raised eyebrows from their matronly wives, snickers from their junkie offsprings at Waterfront Lahug anytime. And these are the perfect "Look at me! Look at me!" footwear on those sad days...
*it's ok, I guess. Those Korean and Japanese tourists would understand me*
Emilio Pucci Rainboots
For $150...PhP 7,700, it's not bad. It's already cheap...er, compared to most things nowadays. Besides, they're Pucci. Mums always love Pucci. When my mother sees that name on my credit card bills, it'll all be justified in her eyes. Of course, I wouldn't want to show her how ridiculous the purchased item really is. ;)
And even if I have to pay for it on my own, I still would. The expected gawks and stares would be priceless! Haha. DING DING DING DING!!!! ATTENTION-WHORE ALERT!
There. Now all I have to do is tend to my real problems...
Wait, the search for the right pair of rainboots is a serious issue! Imagine life without them! Everybody's been under the rain...except maybe serious pluviophobics, but that's besides the point.
Point of the matter is: if you don't have proper rain gear, you end up well...wet. And once wet, it'll take you a longer time to dry. Your body temperature goes all berserk, and then follows your entire system. And then you get sick. And once you get sick, you then die. Oh yeah, I only talked about rainBOOTS earlier...
STILL, they're important. If you don't have proper rainboots, you step into a puddle. You think, "f$@!*%!!!!...*sigh* Oh well, it's just water". But how sure are you it was "just water"? Nooo...You never know what's the in that puddle. The water seeps into your shoes, to your socks, eventually absorbed by your skin. Millions of bacteria lurking (that Lysol ad really did it for me)...creeping into your dermis...to your bloodstream. They start breeding inside you, and you get sick...a week after, you wake up with only your crotch left. They've already eaten up all of your limbs from the inside!!! You faint at the site of your own blood, so you couldn't call for help. Even if you do, you can't run (hello, no legs and arms to even crawl with) All too late...and then you die. See? It is serious!
Government Warning: This post is a clear representation of what might happen to you, should you choose to live an unhealthy lifestyle. You will soon end up in an asylum, and eventual death.
Personal advice: Don't blog when temporarily insane from lack of sleep.

A veteran of four World Cups, scorer of a whopping 1,283 first-class goals -- 12 of them in the World Cup final tournaments. Pelé is the only player in the world to have played in four World Cups and brought home the trophy three times. He is the legend and this was his off-the-field shoe...and now, I went them.
Hoping that if I wear them, I'd be like Li'l BowWow in that crap movie (a few years ago) of his with the Michael Jordan sneakers and he magically gets Jordan's skills after wearing them. I didn't bother to watch the movie. I saw the preview on Star Movies, and they pretty much told the whole story. The message was clear: "This is a crap movie. Don't bother.".
I never really cared much about video and audio piracy before, but damn...when Pelé did that commercial against piracy, I am now an advocate. I admit to have bought a few pirated videos before. And hell, of course I download illegally. What's the point of paying a monthly premium on high-speed internet? YOU KNOW YOU DO TOO! Haha. But I really am seriously considering going legit. Fucking commercials...why couldn't they have taken someone less credible to advocate against piracy like George W. Bush? I never imagined I'd say this, but I wish it was Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan or someone as equally unbelievable and ludicrous, so I wouldn't have to feel guilty everytime I download episodes I've missed on CSI:. :(
Nevermind that he's old, and not exactly someone with a face you'd like your kids to inherit, but that man is a genius.
He played football to a samba beat. Beautiful skills, astonishing speed and ball control - and of all those great players in those yellow and green shirts (don't forget those 70's shortyshorts!), Pelé was the greatest of them all. Ronaldo was shit compared to him. And with that said, I shall stop before sounding like a complete fanatic. Which I am, but won't admit to. Because I, Twilly the Twat, am a hypocrite and full of bull. ;)
Now, don't be mislead. I'm not good at football...at all. Come to think of it, I'm not good at any sport for that matter. Not even friggin' pingpong. :P Although that Forrest Gump movie sure made an impact on me then...and no matter how much I rewind again and again listening to the "just watch the ball..." scene, I never quite improved. Haha.
Alas, I am useless, and only good at citing things that I want want want and not actually do something about it. :)
Puma Pelé Brasil Athletic Shoe
These particular ones retail for $64.95 (PhP 3,000+) at Nordstrom.com (tax exlusive). There other shades (of mainly green and yellow --which is disappointing, but unsurprising) and designs availabe under Pelé's name for Puma that ranges from basically $60-$90 (PhP 3,000-5,000) --tax exclusive, of course. But Blogger hates me, and I'm having issues with their photo uploading process.
I'm buying...when given the chance to find one in person. Risky buying shoes online. I have weird feet. I need to fit them first. Besides, I like S.A.s kneeling infront of me to fit my shoes. Haha. *eviilllll*
Support Pelé. Support a millionaire, and a multi-million-dollar company like Puma as well to make even more millions out of us. Because we are weak creatures, and we cave in to all their shit. Buy now! Do it. Damn this retail business...damn you!!!
