funny komiks, among others

Mama, maraming salamat na nung bata ako, binilhan mo ako ng Funny Komiks at Liwayway bawat linggo, sinama sa nobena sa Baclaran tuwing Miyerkules, sinama sa pakikipagtawaran sa palengke ng Pasig kada Sabado, pinasakay ng jeep at bus na ako ang nag-aabot ng bayad, tinuruan mo akong gumamit ng acronyms para masaulo ang mga pwedeng itanong sa enumeration, pinabayaan…

(It’s nice when a coffeeshop has free wi-fi, but it’s even nicer when the socket’s not working. Which means I cannot use my laptop and I have to use pen and paper instead. Great. (I’m laughing at myself ‘coz even I cannot decide if I’m being sarcastic or not.) 08/30/10 Kocco, Morato, 16:15)

this won’t be the last time

I just received news that my short film will be screened at the Asian Hotshots Film Festival in Germany on October.

oh great

When you’ve already declared that it’s going to be a great day, you’ll get an e-mail from work asking you to do some paperwork and finish it before tomorrow’s meeting at noon, and what do you do? You go on making this day the great day that you declared, and do the paperwork when the great day…

She told him, I hate you, and he told her, I hate you too, and I figured they’re going to love each other for a long time.

Natapos na rin kita sa wakas. Una kitang naisip, two years ago na yata, basta matagal na. Nagagalit na nga sakin si Bebs kasi puro konsepto lang ako, puro drowing, puro excitement, wala namang nasusulat. Pero ewan ko ano’ng nangyari, bakit bigla na lang akong ginanahang isulat ka. Pagkatapos yata nung mapanood ko ang Donor…
