Luigi (left-most)! I think I'm the only one who calls him Luigi, everybody else calls him Luis. Another dear friend. Etong tao na to, he will always update me sa mga escapades nya kahit ala-sinco na ng umaga, basta kailangan nya makwento sakin yun. I will never forget the night or shall I say the 3am call he made asking me for the time. F*ck talaga! Also he will always remind me of the time namuntik na siyang makipag-away dahil sa akin. Hahahaha! Basta. Love ko tong taong to. Treats me as if I'm one of the guys. Hell, everybody does.


Some of the dearest men in my life: Raffy Bogus, Philip, Alvin, Bryan. Never had they left my side in times of my sadness and loneliness. They have been pillars of strength when all hope has abandoned me. I love these guys and will do anything, as long as I'm able, to be with them in any way. At any time of the day. I remember a time na halos hindi ko sila nakikita, ni sa mga birthday nila hindi ako nakakapunta. My man and I were just new then and he was sort of jealous of these guys. Syempre, the good girlfriend naman ako, hindi ako sumama sa kanila. But after a year or 2 of this, I had to break free. I had to be with my friends. So, I said to myself, as long as I have the opportunity to go out and have fun, it should be my prerogative, not anyone else.
So here I am.

Jenina & Binky

2 of my closest friends from high school were also there. That's Jenina Alli in the middle, and then Binky Belardo. During this time, Jenina was the Associate Editor of FHM, so you could imagine the requests she was getting from the people around her... the girls asking for a chance to model or the guys asking for a year's subscription of FHM. Binky naman was also working for Summit Mags, kaya may nagre-request din sa kanya! Aahhaha! Laugh trip talaga!

Nothing happens to me on my party.

Back in college I was known as the girl who threw the craziest birthday parties and I check attendance, too. I'm actually proud na my friends await my birthday kasi they never know kung anong mangyayari sa day na yun. For some apparent reason, something always happen in my parties, kung hindi away (oh man, may girls na nag-aaway, tas after nung party mga lalaki naman... ahahaha), may mangyayaring himala (alam nyo na yun :P). Pimp house daw ang bahay ko pag-birthday ko. I always tell them, it's the booze. Ewan ko ba.

Usually, we'd ask permission from PLDT's admin if we can use their parking as an extension of our house when I throw a party because I also get a band for music. It was across from my place, so you can just imagine the people crossing the street from my house to the lot and then back to my house. Sometimes, we'd just close the road (o di ba?!) Hehehe. I miss throwing parties like that. Pero napagod na rin siguro ako. For the past 4 years, I've just been holding small inuman get-togethers with some of my closest friends. I find it relaxing and easier to arrange. PLUS, less chance of something happening to someone. Ahahaha! I'll post more pictures later :)

Of Birthdays and Tears Part I

Taken during Mayette's birthday inuman, October 14, at Pam's house. Not planned at all, She just texted us that we had to be there and so we were. It was a Thursday night. I didn't go home, I went straight to Alvin's condo and then we waited for Maebs to pick us up. About Alvin's condo... wag na nga... I promised him I wouldn't tell on him... ahahahahaha! Anyway, the party was in full swing by the time we arrived. Soon, Raffy brought out his CDs and then dj-ed for a while. By 2am, we were all ready to go home, because almost all of us had work that morning. Matt, Shaba, Bryan, Raffy, Maebs, and I were craving for Burger Machine so we decided to swing by Jupiter for a quick bite. When we arrived and had parked our cars, Matt then said that he wanted to eat in Whistlestop. Breakfast daw. So we bought the burgers and then proceeded to Whistlestop. By the time we decided to go home it was around 5am. It was hilarious, all of us picking on poor Raffy. Andres kasi eh. Kasi naman eh. Ika nga ni Maebs, 'Honey, I want to go home na!' Hahahaha! So funny. Buti na lang nakapasok ako ng Friday :)

On a more serious note, while going to Mayette's party, Maebs was telling me her predicament about her ex-boyfriend. I won't go into details but what happened is that she has been seeing her ex for a while now. She still loves him but she doesn't know if he loves her still. They kiss and all, but where was all this leading to? A reconciliation? Or was it just a pastime for him? She said that earlier that afternoon she was studying for her board when all of a sudden she had this urge to write him a letter asking him, 'What's it gonna be?!' (That's not exactly what she said of course) All she wanted was an answer to all her questions: Do you still love me? Why are we still seeing each other? Why do keep on texting me? Why do you look for me? What are we? She said she was crying at one time while writing it. She was afraid of the answers to her questions but she needed to know. If there was nothing, then might as well stop everything and move on. And it got me thinking, why do men have this effect on women, that they lose all inhibitions and just give in? I mean, I have been prey to this I admit. Oh God, many times. But why do we fall each and every time?

I'm holding a small asalto for my birthday tomorrow, here in the house. Just a few friends, those who really matter. I hope everyone comes. I think the best time to celebrate one's birthday is actually greeting it with some good friends and family. I can't think of anything else. I'll post pictures later, if I'm able to remember to take them, though. ;)

Bogus talaga. I attended the pep alumni overnight in Raffy's resort. It was crazy. And it was one of those times na all of you would reminisce about an event that really stood out, then matatawa na lang kayo. My batch in the squad, we were the notorious ones. It's been quite a number of years since we have all graduated but we're still together, kahit anong mangyari. A really stable group of friends na alam everything about each other. Walang humpay na pagpupugay talaga.

Soul sister.

Mayette and I :) We've been through a lot, this girl. I consider her one of my best friends. One of the few people who know me inside and out. Never thought we would end up as such good friends. Kakunchaba in everything. She was one of the members before na madalas kong pagalitan because she was so magaslaw and always moving out of formation. I'm not sure kung nabato ko na siya ng pom2, pero malamang. But she turned out as one of the best captains the squad has ever had (syempre, after me...ehem...ehem..). Mana-mana, ika nga :P Pag pinagsama mo kami, wala nang makakatalo samen. Pep days talaga. Oh well.

This has turned out to be a damn testimonial! Ahahaha!

Yey! Pep girls in Galera!

You'll never know that at one time, hindi kami magkakasundo. Really. That was a really turbulent time in the squad. May mga sariling factions within the group. Trusts were broken, lies spoken, backbiting, meetings that I did not know about. Talagang bastusan na. Never thought that we all could be good friends again. I call them 'my anaks,' and they call me Mamy Rose. Funny, but true. Claudine started the Mamy thing, then eventually everyone followed suit. Now even the new members of the pep call me that. Even Raffy Bogus! Hahahaha! In a way they are truly my kids. I've seen them through their own heartaches and tears as they have seen mine; they always ask me kung okay ba yung guy na nanliligaw sa kanila or kung may umaaway sa kanila. I would take them home pag wala silang way pauwi, if they needed money for something, basta meron ako pahiramin ko sila. Even their parents know me as Mamy Rose and they trust me with their daughter. They would ask for advice sa relationships nila, sa family, sa friends... believe me lahat na ata, I've heard it. And until now, ganun pa rin. I'm not complaining, though. I love these kids to bits and would do anything to keep them safe.

Finally. A weekend.

Finally, it's Friday. Ewan ko ba. This week has been really stressful and confusing. When I woke up just a few hours ago, I felt so tired and weak. The only thought that has been giving me quite an excitement is that it's already October! My birthmonth! Mayette (October 14) and I (October 18) were supposed to celebrate our birthdays in Galera on the Hallow weekend but she has to attend a wedding where she will be a bridesmaid. Aaawwww. I know, delays. But matutuloy din yun, most probably in November nga lang.

Oh damn. I forgot. I have to render overtime this Saturday. Argh.
