So what the fuck was that all about?

I was at the office
, nursing a cold (currently now a fever) and busy checking possible Japanese school girl costumes for our Christmas party meeting deadlines when Sherwin buzzed me informing me of another Trillanes-led "coup" happening in Makati.

Apparently The Senator Elect and his party of hotel-loving officers walked out of their own trial this morning, went for a "symbolic" little walk in the streets of Makati and holed themselves up cozy in the Peninsula Manila -- all for the ouster of The Small But Terrible President of the Republic, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

While walking the strangely deserted streets of Makati Trillanes called on the people to join them in "the only opportunity for change". The media of course, followed him like mad dogs (only to be teargassed later). Some people waved gleefully at him and the cameras, the rest of us, well, went on with our daily lives.

After six hours and a wrecked Manila Penn lobby later, Trillanes and his gang surrenders.

"We're going out for the sake of the safety of everybody, for your sake because we cannot live with our conscience if some of you get hurt or get killed in the crossfire," said Trillanes, addressing the media.


Award?

Your dear heart bleeds for concern for the people yet you went straight to a hotel in the country's busy business capital? With armed guards?


What a punk, this Trillanes guy is.

Because it's cheesy like that.

...um...I'm with that "Baddie" dude... *blink-blink*

...ok...I'm (slowly) getting over it...
It's certainly been a crazy exciting week of earthquakes, (indecisive) typhoons, and ridiculous excuse for an 'detat!
(I mean seriously, where's the commitment these days? a three hour coup?? C'mon! I miss a good old fashioned 'seige' and shit!)
...and why oh why did it have to be the Penn for Jebuzes sake!...there goes our "Buffet-Fridays"...

... ...ok...I'm back on the "Japanese Schoolgirl" thing... ;)

trillanes is a moron.

on a more serious note ...

i once bought a sailor moon outfit in japan. unfortunately, i also bought a pair of handcuffs wrapped in fur. At the baggage check, the officer held up my cuffs and told me she had to get rid of them.

that would have been fine, except that my boyfriend's dad happened to be in the queue behind me, and he saw everything.

*sheepish*

Hey niki, Still don't want Morrigan Aensland's costume? hihi.

Watching the news was like watching a Pinoy movie - action! drama :'( suspense :-t long speeches. and the usual anti-climactic ending.

Oh and we were all over international media - CNN. Al Jazeera. BBC. Our country is infamous yet again!

Try going over the Philipine Star today (11/30). Somebody's wedding got ruined in the Peninsula when the rebel soldiers stormed the hotel. "Why me? And why today of all days????" doesn't seem to cover the wide spectrum of emotions. tsk tsk.

For a military officer, this dude sure is weak at planning. If it were up to me, I'd sentence him to watch V for Vendetta 200 times.

thanks for quoting me niki :)

my blood was boiling when I saw his face again doing the same MO as years past.

the stock market, and the economy in general needs less of disruptions and more action. this is not to say that there are many Gloria lovers out there.

just another day in Philippine life.
