Nag walk-out si Mirriam, si Corona at si Ruffa so what?

Walk-out Lady

Noong nakalipas na mga araw, tineks ko ang aking kaibigan. ang sabi ko, dre, nag walk-out si Mirriam sa Impeachment Trial ni Corona.

Ang sagot sa akin ng kaibigan ko,

pre, ano naman ang keber ko dyan. kahit naman sya mag walk-out araw araw di naman mababago na OFW pa rin ako. Mabubuhay ba pamilya ko dyan? At isa pa expected naman sa kanya yan kasi sobra na sya sa talino. Ang mga nandyan mga gago. wahh.

Noon namang tumestigo si Corona, tineks ko ulit ang aking kaibigan. ang sabi ko, dre, nag walk-out si Corona pagkatapos nya sa witness stand. Napikon si Enrile.

Ang sagot sa akin ng kaibigan ko,

pre, ano naman ang keber ko dyan. kahit naman  mag walk-out si Corona araw araw di naman mababago na OFW pa rin ako. Mabubuhay ba pamilya ko dyan? At isa pa expected naman sa kanya yan kasi ayaw nya sumagot. Kasama na yan sa script buking na kasi. kailangan nya ng isang drama para maantig ang damdamin ng mga pusong mamon na pinoy. iniisip nya siguro, marami naniniwala sa kanya. baka magkaroon ng mirakol, pipol power katulad noong impeachment ni Erap.

Kay Enrile ganon din.  kahit naman araw-araw syang mapikon, wala namang epek sa kabuhayan ko yan. so, ano paki ko? Ikaw Pre, meron ba?

Noong May 10, 2012, nag-text sa akin ang aking kaibigan, Ang text message nya,  “Pre, Talo si Pacman. Nadaya! Olats ako sa pustahan. malaki! bwisit!”

Ang sagot ko naman,

dre, ano naman ang paki ko dyan? kahit araw araw matalo at madaya si pacman, di naman mababago na OFW pa rin ako. Mabubuhay ba pamilya ko dyan? Yan, pumusta ka, yari ka kay kumander, may unexplained expenses ka.  manigas ka. wag mo ako uutangan. At saka, hindi sa akin  o sa barangay mo dapat ipaalam na natalo ka, kay kumander mo yan sabihin at doon ka magpaliwanag.  lol

Noong June 23, 2012, nag-text sa akin ang aking kaibigan. ang sabi nya, Pre, nag walk-out si Ruffa sa kanyang show sa TV5. Sabi nya sa mga ilang tweets nya, “From this day on, I will no longer be part of Paparazzi. I will never tolerate DISRESPECT in any form done to me, to my children or to my beloved viewers.” and “I refuse to be part of trashy reporting that degrades people or shames others. ‪#Paparazzi‬”

Ang sagot ko sa aking kaibigan,

dre, ano naman ang paki ko dyan. kahit naman sya mag walk-out  araw araw di naman mababago na OFW pa rin ako. Mabubuhay ba pamilya ko dyan?

At kahit nga ma in-love sa akin yan (assuming), di ko sure kung ano ang aking gagawin. (at may paki pala. lol). malamang, di ko kakayanin, kasi spokening in dollars yan. eh alam mo naman ngayon, strenghtening daw ang piso kontra dolyares dahil umuunlad na ang ekonomiya ng pinas ayon sa sabi ng mga kagalanggalang na mga opisyales ng kumite de peste-ho este gobyerno. bwahahaha.

Kahapon, kasama ko ang pare ko. Nagpunta kami sa bahay ng isang kaibigan namin. Nakikain. At talaga namang  napakasarap ng inihandang pagkain ni kumare. Kaya natural din na mapasarap kwentuhan. umaasa din, baka may second round pa. ha ha ha.

Sa gitna ng kwentuhan at katuwawaan, mga alas-onse pasado  na ng gabi, lumapit sa amin ang aming kumare. sa isp ko, yan na!  yon pala may sasabihin lang kay pareko.

“Pare, may text message  si kumare.” Ang sabi, ‘UMUWI KA na! NOW NA! kung HINDI ka pa UUWI, magwo walk outside na sya sa bahay nyo para sunduin ka.’

Ang sagot ni pareko, “Ah ganon! …. Yan!  yan ang malaki ang aking paki. D’yan ako may KEBER.

Hmmm. Napaisip ako. Di dahil sa sinabi ni pareko kundi dahil gusto ko. Paminsan-minsan okay din pala gamitin ang brain.  Masarap din pala ang nag-iisip. bwahahaha

Kung ano ang aking iniisip, itanong mo sa box sa ibaba. pramis sasagutin kita. At kapag nagkita tayo, papanumin pa kita ng sikat na beer sa buong mundo – beertigo. (with korniks)

lol

About Mr. Condom, Sleep and Useless Rants

So today is Monday.  Yes, A Monday!

Mechai Viravaidya is the founder and chairman of the Population & Community Development Association (PDA), one of the largest NGOs in Thailand dedicated to poverty eradication. He is also well-known for his  Cabbages and Condoms restaurant.

In this TED talk he gives an amusing overview of how Thailand went from 7 children per family to 1.5 in less than four decades and a 90% reduction in HIV infection rates from 1991 to 2003.

P-noy must invite this guy to come over to the Philippines and help out with his Poverty and population programs.. Baka maka-enlighten siya sa pag iisip ng mga ibang tao sa ating lipunan most especially those people with brains molded in the dark ages and with mind-set stuck in the 1600.

* * *

Now, back to normal programming and on to the main thing. ha ha ha

Let me repeat.

So today is Monday.  Yes, A Monday!

Someone said that “an idle mind is the devils playground, and his name is Alzheimer’s.

On the other hand, another someone said “Sometimes the most productive thing one can do is to sleep.” Perhaps this someone really knew Alzheimer well. Ano sa palagay nyo?

But then, what happens when you wanted to be productive, meaning you wanted to sleep but you cannot. Not because the devil, ah the Alzheimer I mean, is having a good time in your brain cells or not that you have insomnia or whatever but simply, the people in the environment where you are in have undergone a drastic lifestyle change where they make the day their night and the night becomes their day for a month or till the moon disappears.

All about bleeding noses

Ayon sa balita na napanood ko sa TV at nabasa ko sa ABS-CBN website – Erap rushed to hospital due to nose-bleeding:
MANILA, Philippines – Former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada was rushed to the hospital on Sunday afternoon because of profuse nose-bleeding.
His wife, former senator and doctor Luisa “Loi” Estrada said there is no cause for worry.
In an interview with ANC, she said: “There’s nothing to worry about. Nagkaroon lang ng parang gasgas. His nose bled, that’s it.”
She said doctors are now checking what caused the lesion “but there’s no mass, so it’s okay.”
It was Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, Jr. who rushed the former president to the hospital.
Many years back, an equally old comedian and noon-time TV show host had this joke on national TV:
Question: Papaano mo malalaman o masasabi na matanda na ang isang bading?
Answer: Kapag dumudugo na ang kanyang ilong (nose-bleeding)
Question: Bakit?
Answer: Kase, yon na lang ang masikip eh. LOL
Hey hey hey. Don’t look at me that way! I am just telling you stories that I have seen and heard on TV.
Peace! Happy Monday to all.

But Today, I Simply Hate This Post! LOL

“OMG, I hate math! Or sometimes, “Damn, I hate numbers!”

That’s what I heard the other day from school kids and from my office-mate early this morning.

And I bet my two betlogs, you also heard that from other people of various ages and people from of all walks of life when confronted by a particular situation concerning numbers, be it simple or complicated. I guess, it is or it has become integral part of most people’s attitude in various societies to find something convenient to put their blame on especially on a FAIL situation.

It may seem funny or stupid but numbers are with us even before God put us in this world and even before we were born. But whether we love, hate or blame numbers, they are here to stay.

Remember it took God seven days  to finish His creation.  And, I am sure without shouting, we all know that 7 is also a number. Right?

Also, correct me if I am wrong, it took 2 people, 1 male and 1 female, to help one God (if you believe in that) in pro-creation. In that process, our parent, the 1 male and the 1 female,  had sex, one time or several times (only them knows) before we were conceived when two cells (one sperm and one egg) met,  out of the million egg cells waiting and a million sperm cells released from an act done, one time or several times during the day.

Please do not ask me why even simple calculation causes some people or a number of people to hate math or numbers. I might be tempted to write down a number of simple answers that at the end you will start counting how many times you have scratched your head in disbelief.

And yes, in disbelief, you might end up wondering how much hair fell when you started scratching which,  in the first place, you should have scratched something else other than your balding head.

“OMG, I hate math! Damn, I hate numbers!”

Honestly, I do,  sometimes.

But today, I simply hate this post!  LOL

Patience is indeed a virtue

Tapos na ang aking bakasyon. Kung baga sa isang kaaliw-aliw na laro sa computer: “GAME OVER!” Shucks!

Game Over!

Sa ngayon balik na ako sa aking trabaho. At sa linyang paulit-ulit na sinasabi ko halos taon-taon pagkaraan ng halos isang buwang balik-Pinas at balik-pamilya: ‘BACK TO REALITY.’ Argh!

At kung ako naman ay inyong tatanungin sa Ingles: ‘How was your vacation?’ — well, ang tugon ko ay mistulang litanya na rin na sa mahabang panahon ay sinasabi ko, taon-taon, paulit-ulit lang — ang walang kamatayang linyang ‘Oks na Oks!”

A day in the life of a Hero (OFW)

Two Fridays ago, I got up at an unaccustomed unholy hour. I had to play early morning tennis with a friend at Mariott Hotel in this foreign city which has remained alien even after living here for years I don’t care to count.

Dang, it was cold and windy that morning. I was surprised that the weather here can be so crazy as well. I had thought in this part of the world it was easy to know: it is hot when it is summer, and it is cold when it is winter and that is it. Now, I could no longer tell. Climate change, perhaps. Or could it be I was the only one unaware of these sudden changes because lately I have been spending so much time in bed.

Instead of waking up early which I used to do, I have been cuddling my pillows and I suspect that while the sun was rising, I was snoring so loudly that the birds that used to come at my window and sing beautiful melodies got pissed off and flew away somewhere more quiet. And who knows what else had happened? One thing is sure though, my bed has so much affection for me and vice versa.

My friend and I played several sets, after which we went to the lounge to relax a bit. I was expecting libreng coffee with milk. I forgot I was in the sports facility of an expensive hotel and not in the bakala (store).
