Waking Up After Lunch on a Black Saturday

No GOOD MORNING for today, only GOOD AFTERNOON. I skipped it. Recently, I am getting longer and longer hours of sleep provided there are nothing to cause me to get up. The alarm clocks that I use consists of 2 cellphones (Nokia E63 with Pitbulls' Bon Bon Me No Speak Americano and Nokia XpressMusic with The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) and the TV set at full volume over channel 2 Umagang Kay Ganda.  Nothing beats Winnie Cordero's pitch to wake you up in the morning especially when you need to rush because it is running a little late. For today, it is a whole lot different waking up. The feeling is like a television turning on, from a complete nothing to full showing. Bright lights tend to become too annoying probably because of too much information sent to the brain which is just starting up. (Tanghali na!!!= It's already lunch time!!!) Usually, I get this feeling when I drank too much alcohol the night before. Now what, I was supposed to go to the market to buy food and cook for today. For two days, I have been eating food cooked by my friends and they are challenging me to cook for them to have a taste of my specialty. Maybe because I brag a lot about how good I am when it comes to the kitchen. Come to think of it, when I am cooking I do not normally taste it. Its a habit not to taste but I just sense the flavors by smelling what is going on. Expert! Sometimes I fail, most of the times I don't. Judging from the people I was able to serve the dish, they were all polite in saying how good the food was. Or am I too scary to disappoint? Well, there are no left overs so its enough compliment already or the serving was not enough. Anyway, I am wondering why I feel awful lot sleepy after consuming meals? Is it because now a days I eat my heart out? "Sarap kong kumain!", my friends say. Diet or no diet, we should eat! Wait! Somebody texted me. "Where is our lunch?" OK! I will just finish three cups of coffee, then take a bath, brush my teeth, wear something sunny and then go to market. My friends have no choice but to take their lunch later in the afternoon. Take it or leave it.

Why Blog Social Climber?

From a Social Climber’s Perpective
If life begins at 40, I am 7 years away from having a life. The question now is whether I do have a life or just starting to get one. Quality of life is relative depending on where you are in the social ladder and what your economic status is. This is where social climbing enters the picture. Ooops! Please do not get me wrong about the ‘social climber’ thing. It may sound derogatory but I want to swing it to something that is more socially acceptable. It is like challenging the status quo in a society where clich├ęs are rampant. Branding people as to who belongs to the IN crowd, the RICH and FAMOUS, and to some other feel good position in the society. Break.  From dictionary definitions, being branded as such is not a good thing. For example, Wikipedia claims that a social climber is ‘someone who seeks social prominence, someone who has suddenly risen to a higher economic status but not gained the social acceptance of others, or simply an insult suggesting poor work ethic or disloyalty to roots.’ Hmmm that was intense. The more I dig into the concept of what a social climber is; it seems harder to swing it to a better vantage point. Living a life that is full will be dependent on how you look at life and at yourself. Oh well! In time, I am sure that you will get my point. The basic idea of why I am blogging is to let you guys see that socially we should be responsible with our actions. It is not what you know but it is who you know that matters. Joke. Kidding aside, there should be minimal to no effort at all in being accepted socially. It is OK to show people who we are and what we can do. For the resources part, just stay within your budget and never forget where you are. In this area, it’s just arithmetic and the science of timing. When opportunity knocks, do not rush to open the door. First, use your instinct if the knock was made on the door, maybe what you heard as a knock is actually a tap on the window or a strike on the wall. Second, calculate how far you are from the knock. Simple! Need I say more?

Jepoy? Hmmm... what can I say about this guy? Known him since my primary years via " Dulaang Paslit" - a theater competition all over metropoloitan manila where we won! (the good old days!)

He was also my senior in secondary years in MIST, where i gotta known him as a very intelligent, religious, natural-born leader and also a born comic.

One of the most admired "kuya" in his batch...

Jepoy - a person whos multifaceted and multi talented personality compares to no one!

    People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know
    what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you
    have expressed. They have come to assist you through adifficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
    to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are
    there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at
    an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
    Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
    What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer
    you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

    Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
    They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never
    done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.!

    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid
    emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned
    to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is
    clairvoyant.

    Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

    Anaknamp... buhay ka pa pala, batchmate! Grabe it's been such a long time since huli tayong nagkita. I think the last time was a year ago, during my Dad's wake.

Matinik yan! :D

    washboard abs, rippling biceps,
    outrageous hair and wacko sense of
    humor--that's how i remember jepoy.
    actually, i don't know him that much.
    wev gone on a few gimmicks b4 during
    my single days. despite my fling with the
    UMAL Alumni, i know i can be proud to
    say that he's my brod! just shows how
    truly talented UMALs are (when it
    comes to the stage, gimmicks and hirits!).

Frederick Suarez, anak ni Nympha
Suarez! Di ba pangalan pa lang bold
star na ang dating?!@#$* Kaya lang, he
chooses to be wholesome, cute and
cuddly kaya he goes by the nickname
Jepoy. Nevertheless, this guy is one of
my favorite brods. He's always been
there for me even when I don't need him
(joke joke joke). He is fiercely loyal
to his friends and he will fight for
you kapag kailangan mo ng kakampi.
He's also very funny and sobrang sayang
kasama kahit alam mo na may problema
siya at pasan niya ang daigdig. At sige
na nga, ang lakas ng sex appeal niya
kaya pag magkasama kami I know na
talagang wala akong chance
makabingwit! Even puppies find him
irresistible. Oh well, ganyan talaga
ang buhay, Jepoy is the man. O ayan ha,
pano ba to gutom na ko eh...? Tsk, pa-
canton ka naman! :)
MELDONMar 09 2004, 02:04 AM

CheMar 13 2004, 05:50 PM
tama si lala, nagsimula si jepoy bilang
isang payatot at hindi mo malaman kung
anong klaseng nilalang. para siyang
kawayan na pinugaran ng ibon sa ulo
dahil sa kanyang buhok. kagulat-gulat
ng huli ko siyang makita ... ang
patpating katawan ay tila nakalulon ng
isang litson, o di kaya'y nalulon ng
patpat ang litson?!? hehehe... si jepoy
ang isa sa mga saksi sa mga kagagahan
ko sa los banos.. at inaasahan kong
mananatiling tahimik tungkol dito...
dahil kung hindi ay malilintikan ka sa
akin... siya, sige na nga, labs pa din
kita kahit na ang message na pinapadala
mo lang sa akin ay puro forward at
kahit nandito na ko sa manila ay hindi
pa din tayo nagkikita.

I was friends with him back in LB for
less than a month--but he really made
an impression. Very cool guy, charming
na rin (kulit, as in!) and really
unforgettable. I enjoyed our gimiks,
sobra! Sayang nga lang, we had to
graduate na. Nevertheless, I still want
to thank him for the nice memories. Nag-
iisa lang ang Jepoy sa LB.

25 Random Things uploaded July 18, 2010 Taken from My Notes on FB










































A pitcher of Mindoro Sling all by myself!

1. Self-proclaimed Certified Celebrity. HA! REALITY for me is based on REEL. Movies are based on real life. My life is based on movies. Therefore, I am a MOVIE STAR. I am the STAR of MY OWN MOVIE, MY OWN LIFE. Drama, Comedy, Musical, Fantasy, Erotic, XXX, Action, Horror, Thriller, Sci-Fi, War, Dark, Romantic, Epic, and Animated…name it. I already have a compilation of music that would be the Soundtrack of My Life. Original or Pirated I don’t freaking care. “I don’t wanna be just a face in the crowd…It’s my life…It’s now or never…”… ”Party like a rock star! Party like a rock star!”…”Baby you can have whatever you like…” ….”Aruba, Jamaica, come on pretty mama, Key Largo? Montego, baby why don’t we go to Kokomo”…”Akoooo na yata ang pinakamagandang lalaki sa mundooooo”…he he he…actually I am a big movie fan and most of the time star-struck



2. For the record, I think the very first movie that I was able to watch in a movie house was “MGA KWENTO NI LOLA BASYANG” from Regal Films and in MARI THEATRE in Marikina. Gradeschool nako nun. And as of now, the most recent movie I watched in a big screen was “Ang Tanging Ina Nyong Lahat” in Robinsons Marikina. Says a lot. VCDs, DVDs, Cable TV ruined my adventures in going to cinemas. 

3. GENESIS, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, Playboy Magazines and My Childhood. It was quite difficult for me to weigh things back then, as a child of God I was made from cosmic dirt/ash and the driving force was pure heavenly boredom on the seventh day. On the other hand, I detest evolving into a modern day monkey but science for me is relevant. Now that I have gained the much-needed wisdom…I consider my self as a STAR MONKEY. It’s the circle of life, from stardust to a monkey then back to stardom. Initially, because of all the porn magazines I secretly browsed when I was 6 years old, I thought that guy peeing on the flower of a girl was the actual copulation. INSERT-PISS-BABY…..weird. For the longest time, I was stuck with this concept because I was always scolded when I piss with the toilet seat cover on and I was told not to urinate in swimming pools…ha ha ha KINKY!

4. All I want for Christmas …MY TWO FRONT TEETH…lost them when I fell from a fast and furious BMX bike where I was hitched at the back. I believe I was the first JACKASS, speed addict, just a kid slamming his face on a hump and kissing dirt. I could never forget that feeling of cool air rushing in my mouth and the slimy mix of blood, sweat and saliva all over my face, neck and chest. Awesome. On my way home, I was singing ”…I cant’ smile without you….”

5. I was never fond of SIESTA TIME…takes away a lot of play time. As a kid, play is very valuable and is a matter of life and death. Harry Houdini and David Blaine should get pointers from me in being the PERFECT ESCAPE ARTIST. There is no such thing as being locked-up because I can fit into anything just to get out and avoid forcing myself to sleep. My acting career probably started from pretending to be asleep during siestas and to make it even more realistic are bubbling saliva and original score of snoring ZZZZZZZZZZ. Planning was vital and the escape route was always logical. NINJA STYLE without the smoke powder, just tiptoe to the window, remove window panels fast and noiseless, bear the heat of the roof and climb down walls. Remember to get back on time or else…you will be left with a lot of options, leather belt, walis tambo or dos por dos.

6. IRON CHEF. Back in elementary, my Home Economics teacher asked me to join in a cooking contest. I gave in to the challenge but was not confident with the recipe they wanted me to cook…GINATAANG TULYA. I over-sauteed the onions and garlic and the squash was overcooked. I won 2nd place but I knew it was only because of the fruits we placed in the presentation of the dish which the judges took turns in eating them as desert after tasting all the other entries. Anyway, I was so disappointed that I pushed myself to learn how to prepare and cook food. As of now, my specialties include Tinola, Adobo, Pochero, Paksiw, Pancit Canton, Tuna Pasta, and the sauciest….Garlic Pork Butterly in Mushroom Sauce. The experimental chef in me can do wonders with omelets. For the budget reasons, I have Pinatisang baboy, just patis and baboy. Ha ha ha.

7. Growing up was not that memorable for me in the sense that there were no birthday parties thrown for me. I cannot recall any but I saw only in pictures that my parents celebrated my first anniversary. In those pictures, I saw a happy child wearing jumpers and cute sneakers with a Sesame Street cake. Big Bird, Ernie and Bert were on top of my cake. Sosyal! Looking so innocent, the camera was in love with the cute red-haired mestizo little boy. BIRTH OF THE CAM-WHORE. I am still dreaming of a jollibee or mcdo kiddie party. It feels good though that my friends surprise me with birthday parties complete with cakes, balloons and booze. In fairness to my family, they do remember my birthday and prepare a simple celebration once in a while.

8. Earliest memories I can remember from 3 years old and below… in a blue basin bathing, tumbling down a dining table with dinner on top of it, crawling over a wet, smelly and dirty rag just to get out of the house, a clown balloon bigger than me that is always standing even when I push it down….uhmmm no more…

9. BOYSCOUT FOR LIFE. Learned a lot from scouting. In one of our camping in Mt. Makiling, my PATROL DINGO got lost inside the mountain during the trail signs activity because we were so damn smart interpreting everything in the trail as signs. Being the Patrol Scribe, I was the last in the trek because I had to record and prepare the map. It was already too late and we ventured too far away before we realized that we were lost missing the END OF TRAIL sign. Instinct told us to look for the river and follow the stream, it lead us back to our base camp with no one there. Everyone went on searching for us. It was a close call for the Patrol because upon arriving in the camp heavy rain fell and the path that we trekked going back to the camp is path of the flashflood. A week before that four died in the area because of the flashflood. Whew! Now I am living in Los Banos for almost 15 years at the foot of Mt. Makiling. 

10. My brother is an MVP in Basketball, my other brother is a DOTA Master and my sister is an MVP in Volleyball. I am beauty and brains ha ha ha. I never liked basketball, I am more into BOWLING just like my parents. I am consistently a person to beat whenever I join in bowling competitions (me kasamang yabang). I am also a Badminton champ. My P.E. during college included Bowling, Archery, Swimming and Ballroom Dancing. I learned how to swim in scouting when they threw me in the pool. Just like a dog, I paddled was able to float and surface. The only thing I cannot properly execute until now is the BUTTERFLY STROKE but I can do the dance. I am also into SKIN DIVING. Just recently, I tried SKIM BOARDING and I guess I was born to do it after falling a million times landing face first on the sands of Boracay.

11. ANIMALS. The relationship I have with the other species invented by God depends on my mood. I am a dog lover and is now living with three of them, Junjun, Acacia (shih tzu) and Charmel (shih tzu terrier). My dear departed askal dogs were Orange Juice, Lucky, Luningning, Princess, Brownie, Blackie, Poochie, Ara Maggie Dogg etc. I owned a duck named Pokwang that I got from a perya. My arrowana, Shuq’ran, gave me luck but I think I unintentionally killed it by adding bad water. Another pet that gives me good luck especially in Bingo was Lailang Tuko, a gecko, who is allergic to cumin powder. I also love cats probably because of their being low maintenance Miming, Kitiket, Porch, Zorro, Speedo, etc… Pattie the rabbit, Pokey the guppy fish. 

12. Younger, I used to torture cats. I make them scream by stepping on their tails, I throw them in clothesline and leave them there hanging by their claws, I hang them on walls, I put them inside sacks and swing them on air, I perform operations on their ears by sewing them together, OMG! Worst of all, I was asked to dispatch three kittens somewhere in the rice field at the back of our neighborhood. There in Tumana, I bragged that cats could swim so I threw all three kittens in the empty rice field with water that is knee-high thinking that they can swim. Splash and then bubbles. All of them drowned in front of me. So I think. The next thing I remember is that I ran as fast as I could without looking back, pale and in state of shock. I never tortured cats ever since. In college, I lived in VetDorm, seeing cats being dissected and cats walking around the hall with casts, bandages and patches, I said to myself, “experiment on some, save more catkind.” Road kills, I think it’s their fault. Why did the cat cross the street? To get to the other side. Not really. 

13. I was launched in the dancing arena via ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ stint when I was in Grade 1. As part of the drummer boy look, my mother used her red lipstick in making red circle on each of my cheeks. Looking like a Japanese Flag left and right, I managed to throw in a stellar performance just by doing robotic humping and pumping while striking my plastic drum. The rest is history and learned to accept that the world is my stage. From then on, I danced to the tunes of Carinosa, Singkil, Tinikling, Sayaw sa Bangko, Electric Youth, Hold me, Explosion, Pink Cadillac, Pearly Shells, Prove Your Love, Gold, Dying Inside to Hold You, Mga Kababayan Ko, Hataw Na, Bawal na Gamot, Patient Eyes, Boom Shakala, American Express HowGee?, Humanap ka ng Panget…my dancing career flourished back in High School and was so popular because of my signature moves.

14. Critically acclaimed. As for my acting prowess, I have been part of the following plays; Manuel L. Quezon, The Tragey of Dr. Faustus, Headlayn 1994, Kahapon, Ngayon at Bukas, Matamis na Bao, Kois Kais: Ang Paglilitis, Ang Uwak, Lysistrata, Oedipus Rex. I was asked to play a bit role in the indie film, Lambanog, wherein I was one of the lovers and it was my first and I had nothing on. It was a bed scene…pumping scene and had to fake an orgasm…he he he. For the sake of art, I had to pump a pillow in between our genitals while sitting and her on top of me. My back seriously ached after that and I could not move my legs after the director shouted “CUT!” Orgasm turned into muscle cramp. I have never seen this movie up to now.

15. Videoke and Singing Career
16. Addict sa massage, stressed out, paranoid
17. Social Butterfly Social Climber
18. Loyal sa trabaho, sentimental. lovelife
19. Loner pero center of attraction
20. loves money, believes that money makes the world go round, lotto
21. Smoker, Alcholic, Party Person, Gimik kung gimik
22. Straight to the point, pero pkyeme
23. Feng shui, Karma

Always a good start

Good Morning! It's Good Friday. Officially, this will be my first blog.

Facebook walang bakasyon!  Yesterday was fun, connecting with people from Canada, Jeddah, Hongkong, Singapore and Turkey asking them what are they doing this Lenten Season. 

The way we Filipinos observe Semana Santa evolved in a very alarming way. It is so much different now that people tend to equate Holy Week with their SUMMER VACATION. I will not be hypocritical about this but it just came to me as a thought. It imparts a guilty and uncomfortable feeling for me even though I am a nonpracticing Roman Catholic and also one of those who goes on vacation at the very same time when devotees pray, reflect and repent. But there are multitudes of excuses, that these people, so am I, have in doing such activities. We cannot blame them just remind them of what it is really important, its FAITH.

(Siguro kasi wala ako naging solid plan kaya sour-graping ako.)

Last year, it was Visita Iglesia on a Maundy Thursday down south from Bay to Calauan to Pila to Sta. Cruz to Pagsanjan to Paete to Pakil to Kalayaan to Pila and lastly to Los Banos. Come Good Friday, it was hiking up the Flat Rocks with a little dip in the cold spring. Then the next day, Black Saturday, it was swimming with the family at Flamingoes Resort in Marikina. Not sure though what happened during Easter of 2010. There were many plans though for the Holy Week of 2011 but it is much better to just STAY.
A follow-up Visita Iglesia in Manila, Anilao or Atimonan Beach Camping, or Hiking in Makiling is still a figment of my imagination. NOT EXECUTED. A very good excuse for having no activity for this period is "fasting from too much spending".

What am I doing? (Dapat mag- REFLECT and mag-REPENT!) Surfing the net, trying to do everything online, visiting places, churches and even getting straight answers to my mortal queries. A question last night, Maundy Thursday, is still haunting me. Where was Jesus when he was 12 to 30 years old?
For now, I am not doing anything but just going around the Net. One by one, I checked my neglected sites such as twitter, multiply, slide, picturetrail, etc. It is only then that  I remembered this blog. Kaya eto na ang virginal entry ko! Amen!
