Welcome to the Suck!

Last Friday
I should have been off to play basketball with my former officemates sa HP. E ang kaso mo, 6pm ang start ng basketball and na-trapik ako that morning so mga past 10am nako nakarating ng office. So kelangan mga past 7pm pa ko makakauwi. Bummer. Instead of brooding over not being able to play with the guys, I contacted Jai Skizzy so we could watch Jarhead. While waiting for the movie to start, we went to a nearby arcade hall (yung arcade sa lobby ng Greenbelt cinema) and played this cooL shooting game ala Time Crisis. I forgot the game's name (ano nga ulit yun Jai?) but it was waaay astig!

Gusto ko mag gawa sana ng review for Jarhead but tinatamad ako. Basta spoiler ko na lang is that hindi siya war movie. Mapu-frustrate ka lang kung ang inaasahan mo e siya yung Band of Brother type na film. Kwela siya, and eye-opener to the rigors of a soldier's life. Aside from that, very minimal na yung action scenes.

Last Saturday
After a fly-by in the office for some weekend works, I went to UP with Gelo (who happened to love working on a weekday too... hehe) for the weekly IPMS build sessions. I was able to have a game of Warhammer 40K and Warhammer Fantasy while the boyz duke it out on a "better-than-tv" confab.

Other happenings:
*the boyz toyed with this Russian fur hat
*Arvin and the other Fred demonstrated some WWE stunts (in preparation for the WWE Raw Philippine Tour mania??)
*Gelo was gone for like 30mins for some fishball chompin'
*got my black balaclava from Emp... i need it for the Sunday wargames
*finally, i have my own jeweler's saw. this oh-so-precious modelling tool is used for chopping off metal miniatures without ruining much of the figure's details (basta mahalaga para sa hobby ko yan... yun lang yun)

After that, we headed to the Shakk where Gelo's box o' Pilsen was waiting to be chugged. While the boyz do their things, Me, Garrik, and Jason drove to Thomas Morato to buy stuffs for the next day's gunbang sessions. I bought a battery pack for my gun.

Back at the Shakk, we passed the night talking over a bag of Spanish bread and cans of beer.

Last Sunday
Another gunbangin' action.

I started the day high as I sacked two kills early on the first three rounds. My team-up with sniper John Liit was doing good. We were always able to sweep and cover one flank of the grounds just by doing our routine: me, advancing forward to scout for enemy presence and a good sniping vantage point while John stand cover... he'll then leap forward while I give cover, ready for sniping position again. Galing!

"This is my rifle. My rifle is nothing without me. I'm nothing without my rifle. I love my rifle."

Before lunchtime, I got a text from Bonita that Manny Pacquiao won on the 10th round via a TKO against Morales. So I want to allot this space to congratulate the Pacman! Keep up the good work dude!

Anyway, "girl-in-urban-camo" and her group was on our team for that day so I was able to kinda observe her "da moves". Not bad for a lady I must say. Cute nya talaga. I even had the chance to have a short chat with her while on the game.

Ako: (shouting to the others) may kalaban na tayo sa likod ha.
*Then a waft of perfume suddenly breezes by* (ambango! wearing perfume on a game is a no no though... you don't want to end up being scent-tracked)
Her: (appearing from a nearby cover) wala na "hit" na.
Ako: may nakita pa kong BB galing sa damuhan e. Yung nag "hit" sa mga yun oh.
Her: wala na din. yung mga nasa wall na lang ang natitira
....insert more discussions here, then finally (after her, not giving up that there were really enemies hiding on the bushes)....
Ako: ok, ingat na lang dyan. Paki-cover naman ako.
....she rapid-fired behind me while I ran for the trench. =)

There's this instance too that I was able to have a short chitchat with her while walking towards the safe zone after a "game over".

Basta astig. Ganda points na din siguro na despite her being surrounded by guys in guns, she's still into the sports and up to the challenge. I heard Mica daw ang name niya. Mukhang rich kid nga lang... eek. Hindi naman mukhang spoiled brat, though.

Jai Skizzy and his maiden, Layla, together with his "Kapuso" officemates in GMA arrived late in the afternoon. I lend him my gun and gears for a round before we parted ways.

After the game, the boyz headed back to the Shakk to store the airsoft guns then we charged Galleria to watch Underworld Evolution. As much as I wanted to do a sort of film review, I can't... because I fell asleep on the middle of the movie. Hehe. Good thing I didn't miss Kate's flesh scene... haha. Kate for President!

Paalam Idol Baron
I was surprised when I heard the news but yep, Ka Ernie Baron passed away. I used to look up on him during his heydays as the Walking Encyclopedia, and even my lolo was always tuned to his radio program. Parang alam nya na kasi lahat, kahit ang sagot niya e panay pito-pito at Baron's triangle. Marami na din siyang natulungang mga bata na walang masagot sa assignment nila dahil sa programang iyon. Kaya for sure, he will be missed. Ka Ernie... kung walang knowledge, walang power! Buh-bye!

Yesterday
I got my HP jersey yesterday from Wacha. I like the retro design... the wavy trims are hallucinogenic. =)

Mine's jersey #7... "Obi"
