Thursday, August 19, 2004


I've been really busy lately. So busy that I'm starting to break out -- a sure sign of work-related stress. But instead of attempting to touch your hearts with a tale about my long battle with acne, today, I have decided to redirect you to one of many on-line "pastures" I enjoy -- where the grass is greener, the writing touches or tickles, and zit puss is non-existent.

The first stop on this tour of the www is the home page of a guy from the land where unemployment is low, cigarette boxes have pictures of dead babies and chewing gum is frowned upon. Meet Batjay.

While I am faking my comfort with the English language (you could almost hear my faux American twang, can't you?), Batjay keeps it real. His Taglish blog reads like a conversation with that fun, shoot-from-the-hip neighbor who you were forbidden to play with as your mom was afraid you would have too much fun.

We have not met yet; but in my head (ergo, I am making this up), Batjay sounds like the kind of guy who starts a Saturday night with a quiet dinner and ends it by jumping off an illegal gambling barge in the middle of South China Sea after he accidentally set fire to it while running from the dealers he duped at the black jack table. Or at the very least, the kind of guy who would lug a huge Spiderman doll on his international business trips so he could photograph it (now that, I did not make up).

This ex-disk jockey, now a conference-speaker-slash-engineer can dish out a delicious bwakananginangyan and revel us with daily narratives about how something new or funny or silly or amazing has enriched his life. Believe me, there is a lot of wisdom in the stuff he thinks about while picking his nose on the train.

He is one of the nicest guys I have never met. If only he wasn't so in love with and married to the love of his life, Jet, I would definitely set him up with my sister.

Pinoy Blog: BatJay at Kwentong Tambay, 01/28/2004, Posted by Manuel Viloria @ Viloria.Com

Thanks to Mona and her entry about forgetfulness, I stumbled upon BatJay's Kwentong Tambay blog. It's such a Pinoy blog, what with the Taglish, the humor, and the expressions that make it seem he's right beside you. But I'm particularly drawn towards his January 15, 2004 post entitled: Happy Birthday MyLab (Happy Birthday, My Love).

It is a post of gratitude, nostalgia, hope, success, and that characteristic Pinoy humor that accompanies our usual crisis-filled lives.

Head on over, at magparamdam naman kayo. (Leave a comment at BatJay's spot on the web.)

Man beaten with remote control after watching England-France Match

"A Malaysian man who sneaked out of bed to watch England's Euro 2004 opener was assaulted by his wife who was armed with the TV remote control.

The man's wife also took the smart card from their pay television service to prevent him from watching future live soccer, says the Malaysian Star."

burning grass,
summer days,
moon lit nights,
childhood games

daily walks,
playful dog,
early mornings,
before the dawn.

little lad, looking sad
little boy, full of joy

living together
for so long
life is fine
like good wine

the boss' wife
singing "love's glory"
no apologies
for my life story.

going away
life's a journey
one hello
i gotta go.

Subject: Qantas-Pilot & Engineer Dialogue

Original internal Qantas email

After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction.

The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humour.

Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers.

(P = The problem logged by the pilot.)
( S = The solution and action taken by the engineers.)

P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tyre.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P : Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what they're there for.

P: IFF inoperative.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.

Go east of your dream and farm.
Let peace and silence spin your yarn.
What harm can befall thee
in yon wilderness of clove?

Go on east of ginger trees.
Go soft and silent like the breeze.
With ease be off and wander
in yon wilderness of clove.

Go on past the goldenrods,
where fools and angels lose their odds.
And gods of our ancestors
did immerse themselves in clove.
Go on toward the crimson shore,
beyond this life of metaphors.
Where doors of understanding's house
decorates he them with clove.

bihirang dumalaw ang matalik na kaibigan sa singapore

jay and nes

kuha namin ni nes sa jurong bird park kanina. matagal na kaming magkaibigan ni nes. mahigit 32 years na. isa siya sa mga classmates ko since kinder. actually, siya ang pinaka-una kong naging kabarkada kasi pareho ang section namin simula kinder, hanggang grade 6. pagtapos batch mates kami hanggang nagtapos ng high school nung 1983. patuloy pa rin kaming nagkita-kita pagtapos ng graduation at hanggang ngayon, magkaibigan pa rin kami.

isa si nes sa mga hinahangaan kong tao. matalino, masipag at magaling mag basketball. bukod sa matataas na grades, pinuno rin niya ng extra curricular activities ang kanyang high school career: head ng sports commitee ng sudent's advisory board, varsity player, captain ng basketball team at athlete of the year ng batch namin.

si nes ay isang doctor. graduate ng UERM at espesyalista sa internal medicine. malimit siyang dumadalaw sa bahay namin para kamustahin ang mommy ko. nung minsan nagka pneumonia ang mommy ko. tinakbo ko siya sa hospital at si nes ang gumamot sa kanya. di ko pa rin makalimutan hanggan ngayon kung papaano niya inasikaso ang mommy ko. simula admission hanggang sa mga tests, hindi pinabayaan ni nes ang mommy ko. suwerte talaga ako sa mga kaibigan. kahit di kami masyadong mayaman, nagtutulungan kami sa kahit anong paraan.

jet and tess

si tess at jet sa harap ng waterfall ng bird park. si tess ay asawa ni ness. si jet ay asawa ko. naging magkaibigan din sila dahil sa amin. anak ni nes at tess si cheska. siyempre, inaanak ko si cheska. kumpare ko kasi si nes eh. hehehe. si jet ay dating nurse ngayon, isa nang masayang housewife. si tess ay isa ring doctor tulad ni nes. si cheska ay hindi pa nag-aaral kaya di ko alam kung gusto niya rin maging doctor. si tess ay isang capitan sa AFP at doctor siya sa V Luna (ang military hospital sa quezon city). dati siyang PSG nung presidente si erap kaya marami kaming tsismis tungkol sa pamilya ni joseph estrada. but that is another story.

si nes ay dati ring capitan sa AFP. umalis na siya sa serbisyo. sabi niya sa akin eh "nabuburat na raw siya sa buhay militar" kaya siya umalis. di ko siya masisisi. tingnan mo nga ang mga ulul na opisyal sa maynila - puro pampapoging coup na punong puno ng katangahan lang ang alam sa buhay.


narito sina tess at nes sa singapore kasama ang kanilang pinsan na si sheila at ang kanyang asawa. bagong kasal si sheila at parang honeymoon nila ang pagparito. kagabi ay nasa night safari kami. ngayon naman ay tumuloy kami sa bird park nung umaga, nag lunch sa orchard road at dumiretso sa sentosa sa hapon. gabi na kaming umuwi kanina, medyo pagod pero masaya. bihira lang dumalaw ang kaibigan dito sa singapore. mas lalong bihirang dumalaw ang matalik na kaibigan kung kaya't masaya namin silang sinamahan sa kanilang pamamasyal ngayong weekend.

si jet sa orchard road, b&w kuha ni animal husbandry

ito si jet kanina sa orchard road. ganda niya ano? ngayon alam nyo na kung bakit ko siya kinakantahan.

ito ang dahilan kung bakit ako nagsusulat sa tagalog

Friday, August 01, 2003

kung sino man ang nagsulat nito, saludo ako sa pang-aalaska mo kaibigan...

Mahal kong Lt. SG Antonio Trillanes IV,

Magandang umaga. Nawa'y maigi ang iyong kalagayan d'yan sa stockade. Magpahinga ka muna bago ka humarap sa court martial. Hindi bale nang litisin ka, nakapag-stay sa naman sa Oakwood, samantalang kami, pinaasa mong walang pasok ngayon. KJ ka talaga.

Sinulat ko ang liham na ito para puriin ka sa iyong kagitingan na ipaalam sa buong sambayanang Pilipino ang kabulukang nangyayari sa ating gobyerno. Mabuhay ka. Ang problema nga lang, alam na namin lahat iyon, Kapitan Trillanes. Hindi na ninyo kailangan pang magtanim ng bomba at magpapogi sa inyong mga fatigues para lang ipaalam sa buong madla na may mga katiwalian sa gobyerno.

Hindi tuloy ako nakapanood ng Terminator 3, eh malapit nang mawala sa sine 'yon. Okay sana kung nagbakbakan kayo ng mga sundalo ng gobyerno.

Mala-THE ROCK saka DIE HARD sana ang nangyari. Kaso, nagsisisigaw lamang kayo sa lobby ng Oakwood. Para ano pa ang inyong mga armband? Sabagay pwede na kayong magtayo ng boutique na ang brand name ay Magdalo. Pwde kayong magtinda ng mga armbands, fatigue-inspired pants, caps at shades. Ipwesto nyo dyan sa Oakwood para strategic ang location at may sentimental value pa. Bebenta kayo, promise.

Sa launch ng inyong boutique, pwede kayong maglagay ng mga bomba sa parking lot tapos magpaparty kayo doon. Masaya di ba? Mabalik tayo sa layunin ng liham na ito. Yung sinasabi mong nagbebenta si Secretary Reyes ng bala sa mga rebelde, aba, lumang balita na 'yan. Alam na naming mga ordinaryong tao yan. Bakit? Kaugalian na nating mga Pilipino ang mag-sideline di ba? Sa opisina nga namin may nagtitinda ng tsinelas, beads, tocino, tapa, muffins saka bags.

Eh hayaan mo nang magbenta si Secretary Reyes ng bala sa kanila, baka gawang Taiwan lang naman yung mga bala na 'yon. Mahirap buhay eh, magkano lang naman sweldo ni Secretary Reyes. Malamang lumilihis yung mga bala o kaya puro supot.

Yun namang sinasabi mong si GMA ang nag-utos ng pambobomba sa Davao, alam na rin naming mga Pilipino 'yon. Kaw naman, Kapitan Trillanes, sa pagka-tsismoso nating mga Pilipino, sino ba naman hindi nakakaalam na gobyerno gumagawa ng mga kalokohang 'yon?

Plaza Miranda, Jabidah Massacre, pagpatay kay Ninoy, Rizal Day bombings, at kung anu-ano pang kababalaghan, alam na naming gobyerno gumagawa. Hindi naman kami istupido noh! Sabi nga ng mga taga-Assumption, "We're not like tanga naman..."

Ang drama-drama mo masyado, eh kami namang mga ordinaryong tao tinatawanan na lang mga katiwalian sa gobyerno. May linya ka pang "we're ready to die for our principles." Huuu...if I know, gusto mo lang magpa-spa sa Oakwood kasi sira na ang
iyong kutis dahil sa kagat ng lamok sa Basilan. Dapat sinabi mo na lang sa akin, may murang spa dyan sa Quezon Avenue, may "extra" pa.

Ayan tuloy, nagsara Glorietta ng isang isang araw. Lagot ka, milyon nalugi sa mga Ayala. Baka pabayaran lahat sa 'yo yan. At saka naman Kapitan Trillanes, next time kayo magta-take over ng anumang lugar, 'wag naman sa mall. Hindi bagay sa inyong mga fatigues and armbands. Sino ba scriptwriter ninyo? Tsugiin! Mali ang location ng action! Ni walang symbolic o strategic meaning ang Oakwood.

Hindi kayo nanood ng THE ROCK ano? Hay nako, may pasok tuloy ngayon. Nabitin kami. Pogi points ka pa sa mga girls kasi ang guapo mo sa fatigue. Yun nga lang, you didn't die for your principles. May paiyak-iyak and hug pa kayo. Kaya kayo tinatawanan ng Abu Sayyaf, malalambot ang puso ninyo, madrama kayo masyado. Ganyan ba kayo sa Basilan? 'Pag rat-ratan na, yayakapan na lang kayo at umiiyak? God, it's so nakakahiya naman to the enemy. Hay nako, Kapitan Trillanes, mag-direct ka na lang ng pelikula ha? Tingin ko mas magaling ka pa kay Ang Lee kasi militar ka talaga. Maganda yung mga subplots na naisip mo. Maganda rin yung mga dialogue mo.

'Pag nag-direct ka na ng movie, make sure may bakbakang matindi sa huli. Yung tipong mawawarak yung buong building. Yun, mas exciting, hindi yung katulad kahapon.

Ang iyong tagahanga

nag coup ang mga bobo at nilugmok ang mga pinoy sa shit

well, i can confirm that some blog sites are blocked in china, particularly, blogspot. pero iyong interactive-X naman ay hindi blocked. may topak rin ang gobyerno rito. di ba nila alam, pag pinipigil, lalong nang gigigil. di rin naman effective ang blocking dahil, pwede siguro i-bypass ito by hosting your site outside of, or better yet, find another blog provider.

isa pang may topak eh yung mga nag coup sa maynila. para sa mga sundalong nag-coup: "ang TATANGA ninyo!. Bwakananginangyan, gagawa lang ng gulo, walang kaplano plano. dapat sa inyo eh, tanggalan ng baril at hamunin ng suntukan eh. o ano, laban kayo pag walang baril? ha? ha? bobo!

may suspetsa ako na may mastermind ding tanga na nagplano rito eh. what's the objective of this silly coup? to sink the philippines deeper into shit!. no plans, no support, no reason. well, there are reasons but the manner to voice their concerns was waaay off tangent. stupid! stupid! stupid! dapat eh bigyan sila ng lecture sa armed struggle.

ang puso ko, ang puso ko. hehehe. sige mylab, kain muna kaming lunch. just arrived in beijing. talk to you tonight.

Habang nag-se-search ng mga artist na kasali sa "PHILIPPINE HITS - AROUND THE WORLD KARAOKE", napadaan ako sa binebentang CD sa Pinoy Central na pinamagatang "Kukurutin Ko" ni Bert Dominic.

Sino si Bert Dominic? Naiintriga ako sa kanya. Bakit ganito ang title ng mga kanta niya?

Kukurutin Ko
Kay Tsong, Kay Tsang
Johnny's Bird
Tutubing Karayom
Nawawalang Bikini
Hapi Na Si Manoy
Ang Seksi Mo Darling
Ang Siyota Kong Putol
Mag-ingat Kay Ate Aida
Awit Kay Mahal
Ang Nobya Kong Pinay
Okey Lang
Kayakap Ko Ay Unan
Girl, Naaalala Kita
Ibig Kong Bumalik Sa Maynila
Miss Na Miss Kita
Di Kita Malilimutan

sino si bert dominic? tutuo ba siyang tao, o kathang isip ng isang corning-bastos na tulad ko?

Y: The Last Man
1. Y: The Last Man: Unmanned
In the summer of 2002, a plague of unknown origin destroyed every last sperm, fetus, and fully developed mammal with a Y chromosome - with the apparent exception of one young man and his male pet. This "gendercide" instantaneously exterminated 48% of the global population, or approximately 2.9 billion men.

2. Lucifer Morningstar, The Divine Comedy
Lucifer Morningstar, Divine Comedy
Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste...Lucifer Morningstar, the fallen angel of light, the former Lord of Hell, and the owner of a fashionable Los Angeles based piano bar called Lux. On his ongoing quest to escape predestination, Lucifer is accompanied by his faithful servant and lover, the beautiful female demon Mazikeen, one of the daughters of Lilith.

The Furies
3. Sandman Presents: The Furies

In the three years since Daniel left to fulfill his destiny as the new Sandman, Lyta has suffered greatly from the loss of her only son. Now the bloodline that has made her kin to the Furies has taken over her senses' and her sanity. In an effort to escape her pain and unravel her mysterious heritage before it consumes her, Lyta accepts a job with a traveling theatre troupe on its way to Athens, Greece. But a series of cruel and familiar mythological figures set their sites on destroying the Furies and plan to use Lyta Hall as the ultimate pawn.

4. Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman: Arkham Asylum
The story is about Batman and his sanity, or possible lack of such. For the most part, it takes place in Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum, where all the really crazy arch-villains are kept. The criminally insane have taken over the asylum and The Joker is demanding that Batman come inside with them where he belongs. Most of the story deals with this confrontation, interwoven with the gruesome history of the place. At the time of the story some of the inhabitants include The Joker, The Scarecrow, Mr. Destiny, and Two-Face.

the last vampire
the excorcist

Think About It

Death is hereditary.

The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country.
(attributed to George W Bush Jr.)

You never know what real happiness is until you get married, and then it is too late.

Marriage is a very expensive way to get your laundry done.

The trouble with being the best man at a wedding is that you never get to prove it.

All things being equal, fat people use more soap.

No amount of advance planning will ever replace dumb luck.

try try must die!


BEAUTY is in the eye of the beer holder.

All men are idiots... and I married their king.

The more you complain, the longer God makes you live.

I(nternal) R(evenue) S(ervice):
We've got what it takes to take what you've got.

Hard work has a future payoff. Laziness pays off now.

Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools.

Hang up and drive.

God must love stupid people...He made SO many.

Your kid may be an Honor Student, but YOU'RE still an idiot.

Smile, it's the second best thing you can do with your lips.

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Where there's a will...I want to be in it.

It's lonely at the top, but you eat better.

Don't drink and drive...You might hit a bump and spill your drink.

Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Always remember you're unique...Just like everyone else.

Who lit the fuse on your tampon?

I don't have a license to kill. I have a learner's permit.

I wasn't born a bitch. Men like you made me this way.

Taxation WITH representation isn't so hot, either!

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

EARTH FIRST! We'll stripmine the other planets later.

If you can read this I can hit my brakes and sue you

My wife keeps complaining I never listen to her...or something like that.

Alcohol and calculus don't mix. Never drink and derive.

If we are what we eat, I'm cheap, fast, and easy.

Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect them
