Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Of Sleep And Elections

Memo to me: Don’t stay up ‘til 4am in Bed if you have a 1pm gym appointment later in the afternoon. Trainer Ken had to pull back a bit. Every movement was an effort of universal proportions. It’s like forcing your laptop to run several applications while on low-batt.

It’s national circus time, aka the local elections, once more. The TV ads have started airing, and I don’t care if a friend of mine from the advertising industry was responsible for it, but Pichay’s tagline “Pichay para sa senado: Itanim!” is fucking stoooopid. And someone should tear down all these billboards of Richard Gomez along EDSA: for Bench, Belo and one more that I forgot. Puh-leez! And what the fuck were they thinking when they thought of of the ‘Tol series for Mike Defensor: “Walking ‘Tol!” “Standing ‘Tol!”?! We know he’s short, but what next, “Pu— ‘Tol!” if he’s angry?! “Ka ‘Tol!” if he’s courting the Communist votes? How about six years from now, for his re-election slogan: “Back ‘Tol!”?

Manny Pacquiao, you should have just stayed in the boxing arena, not the political arena.

Elections are in May. It’s going to be an excruciating three months.

She has come along way from poverty and anonymity. Anna Dizon has now risen to fame and luxury. Dubbed as the "Singing Star of the New Millennium," she worked first as a dancer and a successful singer afterwards in Tokyo, Japan
