i hate being sentimental, so i'm going to keep it short.

"...this could be nothing, but i'm willing to give it a try..."
~ You Give Me Something (james morrison)

am i really? scaredy cat.


maybe i should be listening to daddy yankee instead (but his music does make me want to party, haha). god i miss the beach. can't believe summer passed and i didn't go to any! growing old up is so lame. i.want.my.rocking.social.life.back. where are my sugapa friends??


and now for more socially-relevant matters:

i hear that PBA Commissioner Noli Eala just got disbarred. apparently MORALITY is big deal in the league. ooookaaaay. in that case, maybe MORE people should get their license revoked eh?

and why oh why, didn't Jovito Salonga become President?

the other night i was able to catch a disturbing national geographic documentary about life in north korea. the situation in the "hermit country" was so that (there are concentration camps (!!) there. complain one time and you and your entire family could be sent there for life) i couldn't help but thank the gods for allowing me to be born in this insane country aka the philippines. imagine, no food, no internet, no phone, no TV, barely there social services, your president as your god, and most of all, no freedom? i would positively die. pinoys may often mistake clowns for government officials, but at least we can kick their ass if we really wanted to. (not to say that everything's dandy here and we should be all jumping for joy, we DO have A LOT of problems that need serious solutions -- but that's another post.)

i told Da-ae (who was from South Korea) about it the next day and was amazed with her perceptive take on living in democracy. i don't see a lot of 15 year-olds (and even 50 year-olds) appreciative, or caring, for that matter -- of being able to live in freedom that much here these days. it's just too easy to take something you've always had for granted like that.


err. did i say i was going to keep it short?

So Noli Eala must be the first lawyer in the Philippines to commit adultery huh?! it sure sounds that way. :P

Why is adultery still a crime? Our legal system is so medieval.
