Twitter War!
on Mar 3, 2011 in Technology Entertainment I am watching too much showbiz news! That much I am sure of! This is so, so not me at all! Now, I know that there is such a thing as a Twitter war. And it involves an actress named Angelica Panganiban and a fan of Phil Younghusband. First of all...

Low Masculine Voice
on Mar 3, 2011 in Philippines Society “Mamâ, bayad po! San Jose…” the person next to me uttered as she handed over her fare. I wasn’t even sure the person was a “she.” “Saan?” the driver, short of hearing, just had to ask. “San Jose pô…” the person said in a v...

Kulangot Country
on Mar 1, 2011 in Football Education Just the other day, I thought about writing a story about Kulangot Country. Albeit, I was hesitant because I was damned sure God reads my blog and enjoys making a damned fool of this peasant blogger whenever I am daft enough to present Him with an o...

on Feb 28, 2011 in Philippines Society Eric, a former player, came for a visit this morning; he was just in Singapore for some R&R and brought me a little something from his trip. That was thoughtful; and I totally appreciated the gesture. He was about to leave when a colleague came...

The Dreaded Shootout
on Feb 21, 2011 in Football Education Regrettable as it may be, the cruel fact of the matter is that the eventful season of our high school boys’ football team ended in disappointment via the often unpalatable but inevitable and necessary penalty shootout. Last Sunday, the boys were i...

Filipinos and Our Superstitions
on Feb 20, 2011 in Philippines Society I was walking towards the side gate early this evening after training when I caught sight of one of two stray black cats that for some reason have made their home right inside the campus. I am an educated man; yet, in many ways, education has not ri...

No Sucking in a Flowjob
on Feb 19, 2011 in Construction Education Promise… For those who have not read my previous note about it, Flowjob is the name of a company that owns these huge machines that can flow newly-mixed concrete to the upper reaches of a building under construction. Because we see one such machi...
