Condoms are the new contraband over at Ayala Alabang

"Contraband" is a bit of a stretch, seeing as it's not illegal, but it has a nice ring to it and the title sounds good so shut up okay.

Anyway, most of us have heard the news that Brgy. Ayala Alabang released an ordinance requiring pharmacies to ask for a prescription before dispensing contraceptives. Buying from other cities then selling them or giving them away within the barangay was also not allowed, according to Barangay Ayala Alabang spokesperson Atty. Luis Sison. Can you imagine small stalls selling condoms in the streets, a black market trade ala Quiapo within the distinguished community?

We human beings have natural sexual urges. I'm not saying that you should always give in to them and start sleeping with everything that moves, but when you do have sex, it's always better to do it safely and responsibly. No sense in taking chances.

On the joys/pains of being fifteen

Disclaimer: I'm assuming that my readers are all above fifteen. If you're not, then go offline before my dark and twisty cynicism seeps into your young minds and corrupts your innocence.

See T-Swizzle's lyrics here.

We all do remember how it's like to be fifteen, don't we? Young and bright and full of hope and thinking that having a boyfriend was the most important thing. Not to generalize, but at that age, the hardest questions are always something along the lines of, "Babalikan ko kaya siya?" or "Mahal niya din kaya ako?"

Sidebar. That's me, second to the left. I was fifteen or sixteen, and bright and shiny.
Also, if any of these guys are reading my blog, I miss you :*

I was fifteen when I had my first boyfriend.


The YC Buddies are big fans of Artistang Artlets, the official theater guild of the UST Faculty of Arts and Letters. We make it a point to always watch their plays, even when we're not required by our professors.

Imba, written by Jem Ferrer, directed by Jihad Mambuay, and (ohnoes, how do you translate "sa pamamahala ni"??) Karla Angela Tajon, was shown at the Rizal Conference Hall in our building. 
It was sort of a Valentine's play, since the theme was love (of course). To be completely honest, even though the past AA plays I watched have been great, I wasn't expecting much from this other than the usual clichés you see in movies. I mean, seriously. It was Valentine's Day! I thought AA would show a frilly, fluffy love story about unrequited love and all that overused Hollywood rom-com bullcrap. Thank god I was wrong.

The story starts with a girl in a park selling balloons on Valentine's Day. She's the common factor, the one who saw everything, in the various stories that happen in the park:

Valentine's Day 2011

Digression: This Valentine's, I didn't really think I want a boyfriend. The thing that was actually running through my mind was I want someone to give me flowers. I want sunflowers! because flowers > a love life.

For me and the YC Buddies (who are all single, by the way—free bitches, baby!), Monday was just another reason to camwhore.

I got three roses: one from our sweet guy blockmates who bought flowers for all the girls in 2BES1, one from Gab, and one from Bojie.

Of course, what special occasion involving the YC Buddies would be complete without eating at Yellow Cab?

Then we went to Fort Santiago.

Happy Overrated Day!

Dear C*nt,
I know you don't want all the overrated, candles-on-cake crap, but I just got to let you (and the whole blogosphere, apparently) know how awesome my best friend is.

Three things about this photo:
  1. We've been friends for years, and you're one of my closest friends, but we only have 17 photos together. I guess that's what happens when two people are both not photogenic.
  2. Lol at Kirstie's face.
  3. If you click the words "see friendship," the accurate thing to be displayed would be our midnight YM conversations full of music, movies, jokes, and *~emotions~*

I find it awesome that when we talk (usually online), we can go on for hours and hours until the wee hours of the morning. *~Late-Nighter~* Seriously, how many nights have we spent exchanging Youtube links of funny shit and songs we think the other will like?

Jesus, this still makes me laugh. Very thin ice~ He has a chart! A dragon chart! Those geese are cooked. Inside jokes 4evz.

Other things about you that I find awesome:

The Collective Fail

It was on Dani's blog that I discovered The Collective, a Cubao Expo-y place where art, fashion, music, and other interests are catered to by several unique stores. What particularly piqued my interest was Vinyl on Vinyl, where you can buy vinyl records, artwork like sketches and paintings, and toys like Kidrobot. They also sell one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories—at least that's what the blogosphere tells me.

Peter Angelo and I are geeks. Huge geeks. When we get together, we draw out each other's geekiness to its full potential. So when I told him about Vinyl on Vinyl, we were excited to go to The Collective.

It was last Monday, with nothing but vague directions I found on the Internet, that Peter Angelo and I went to The Collective. We got lost from the very start, when we didn't know where to get off. Then we got on the wrong jeep and asked directions from a police officer.
Me: Saan po makakasakay papuntang Makati?
Pulis: Doon [points]. Sakay kayong pa-PRC.
Me: Ah. Saan po bababa?
Pulis: Sa PRC nga.
Me: Ah. Eh saan kami makakasakay?
Pulis: Doon nga. [points again]
Me: Ah. Eh saan po kami bababa?
Pulis, exasperated: Sa PRC nga!
Peter to the cop, talking about me: Pasensya na po kayo, di pa yan nakakainom ng gamot ngayon eh.

After that, we didn't know exactly where Malugay St. was, so we asked directions from several people and still got lost. We ended up taking a taxi to Malugay, where The Collective was located.

Meiday! Meiday!

Saturday was Meiday's third anniversary but it was only my first time to go. For those of you who don't know, Meiday is an event where local bands get together to perform. It's organized by Mei Bastes, who takes care of everything that the event involves. Did I mention that it's free?

Several bands were there, including Sugarfree (who disbanded but agreed to perform at Meiday), Pedicab, Halik ni Gringo, and Itchyworms. Unfortunately, I didn't see them all, because I had a curfew of 12AM. Cinder-Ela, lol.

[Pretend there are pics here. I was too lazy to take pictures.]

Oh, wait, I do have one picture. Wait for it...

That is me with Manix Abrera! He draws Kikomachine Komix! His comics are hilarious! I especially like 12! He made my Meiday! The Best Friend was jealous of this picture!

The Versatile Blogger

I love blogging because it's the best way for me to express myself. What makes it even better is finding people who like reading what I have to say, so when Dani gave me this award, I was crying tears of joy (well, not really, but I was deeply flattered and surprised to the point that I actually refreshed the screen twice to see if my eyes weren't just playing tricks on me).

To accept the Versatile Blogger Award there are some rules to follow:

1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass it along to seven blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy.
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

A big thanks to Dani once again for calling this blog "witty", which I think is a very flattering description when sometimes I think it's more along the lines of "total waste of bandwidth".

Seven things about myself:

UST Main Building camwhorage

Part of my 2011 to-do list is going to the top of UST's Main building. I know, I know, what's so special about it that I'd actually blog about it? No reason, actually. It's just that I have wanted to go there for a year because I didn't want to leave UST without having explored every nook and cranny.

Wow, I blathered on a lot. Anyway, I was with Denisse and Gab when I went there yesterday. I tell ya, every time I enter the Main Building, I always feel a twinge of regret about not taking up BS Psychology (even though I know for a fact that I suck at science).

Favorite shot of the bunch. *~legs~*

Also, it would be cool to have a boyfriend from the College of Science/Faculty of Pharmacy so we can make out on the rooftop of the Main Building.

Totally joking.
Or not.
