My Korean friend and a place called ‘Baling’

April 29, 2008

(Note: Those who have read the ‘Baling’ post, skip this entry. Nothing new here) THIS IS ANOTHER ARTICLE that talks about our Korean friends, in fact, the fourth that had to do with the topic. But before I proceed, let me tell you that writing about Koreans is not something I really want to do […]

April 24, 2008

Thanks to friend and former Sun.Star colleague Aledel Gonzalez for sending me the following report. KINSHASA (Reuters) – Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men’s penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.  >> Read article here

Rectal Talk

April 22, 2008

I wouldn’t have wanted to post anything about rectums here because that part of our body has suffered enough already. But there’s an aside in the VSMMC scandal that helps us newsroom people cope with the stupidity of it all (we look for something amusing in the news, or we won’t survive this kind of […]

J, Lurinthoo and the Baling Traffic

I arrived late for a meeting with a Korean client (yes ‘client,’ kay publishing consultant man kuno ko niya). Ug ang Koreana pwerteng sukoa. Koreana: Lurinthoo, what happen? I come far just see you here Ayala. And you? And you? Late to come! Me: I’m so sorry J (that’s her name, for Jaimee). It was […]

The Missing Files

April 17, 2008

Mao ni ang nahitabo sa “3rd album.” Nakarecord na mig five (or was it six?) songs sa Zzubu Studios late 2006 and early last year. Nasud na tanang instrumento (except for some minor additions that I’m sure we would be having later on in the recording). Generally, akoang vocals nalang kuwang. Nalangay lang kay sige’g […]

Nalumos sa noodles

April 14, 2008

Our Korean friends never seem to run out things to amaze us. First there was the mysterious V sign, next they jumped on each other in some water cliff down south (a sad chapter in our province’s korean-dominated tourism industry), now here’s this news about them celebrating what they call Black Day, where lonely hearts […]

Cyberfriends

April 11, 2008

I’m choosy when it comes to friends, that’s why I only have few. Most of them are characters — mga palahubog, laagan, kiat, way libog, way paki, artists, prosties, pimps, adik, zombies. They made it to my short list because of two things only: they don’t speak ill of others, and they have an unquenchable […]
