Toilet economy

March 24, 2008

Last week was probably the most meaningful and spiritually enriching Lent for me so far. As I toured the towns for the Visita Iglesia (which consisted of me stopping in front of churches and proceeding to the nearest sari-sari store for beer), I discovered that our public comfort rooms had become so user-friendly as to […]

No tears for Pikoy

March 22, 2008

ASIDE from feeling hopeful for Cebuano films, I left last week’s Sine ug Katilingban at SM City enriched with lessons on how to avoid crying when watching a tearjerker movie. I unfortunately belong to the species that until now can’t accept the fact that it’s okay to cry in public. It’s a gender thing, this […]

Habal-habal espisyal

March 19, 2008

I’VE BEEN IN many death-defying rides my whole reckless life, but nothing comes close to the habal-habal experience. To those who don’t know what a habal-habal is, it’s a beastlike, three-legged, hairy creature that crawls on its belly, ready to devour snobby urbanites like you. So stop reading this column, finish your orange crème frappuccino […]

The tearyucky show

March 16, 2008

I WASN’T SO EXCITED about last year’s edition of Pinoy Big Brother for the simple reason that everybody went gaga over it. You see, I tend to do the opposite of what everybody does. If you go straight, I step back. If you go left, I go right. If you go right, I go wrong. […]

Pull those pants up

March 14, 2008

More and more cities around the world are cracking (har!) down on saggy pants. I heard some cebu city officials (too old to show butt flesh) are thinking of drafting the same ordinance here. Hip-hop fans, I may not agree with your drop-pants butt-crack philosophy (it will be the embarassment of your youth ten years […]

March 10, 2008

MANILA – The Department of Education’s Committee on the Promotion of the English Language Through Beauty Pageants and Other Funny Activities issued yesterday a memorandum urging all schools to hold more beauty contests to arrest the decline of English proficiency in the country.

‘My pami-ley’

March 9, 2008

The time I spent transcribing this could have been spent on beer. It’s Sunday. But it’s OK. This is the greatest moment in our country’s beauty pageant history. HOW TO WIN IN THE BINIBINING PILIPINAS PAGEANT Host: Number 15, Janina San Miguel. Janina, how are you? Janina: I’m fine. Host: Alright. So you won two […]

Frenchster (connecting people)

March 8, 2008

(Another old article supposedly for repost here last month. In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m storing here all my old columns along with the recent ones before I totally shut down my googlepages account) AS a serious columnist, I feel it my obligation to write only about things that matter, like siopao, hanging rice, […]
