Looooong Weekend

Holy Wednesday
After work, I went straight to my friend's shop in Virramall. Crispybeef and Fluffy were there and we rushed to Hobby Haven in Katipunan to find the place jampacked with da boyz!

Along the way, some serious number crunching tox ensued! We calculated that a street beggar, asking alms on a busy intersection for 8 hours, could actually earn more than a regular employee with a minimum wage! Let's bum!!!

Attendance: The Third Ork God - Pork, Tatay Kamote Emp, Bestman Fred Hentai, Hobby Haven Boss One Chico, Hobby Haven Boss Two SJ, Web Boy Kim, Hairycritter Arvs, Thai Gaydar Fluffy, Fred Threadhead, Warmachine Noob One Patrick, Warmachine Noob Two Chris

Some of the boyz, bent in hunger, went with me to chow down in KFC and after a bucketfull, we went back to Haven for some miniatures and card gaming actions! Plans for Kamote's stag bash was laid out... of course, by the nefarious bestman, Panty Man, himself! It included anime chikks in schoolgirl outfits, too graphic to mention! Will this push through??

Abangan!

Crispy and the Fluffman drove back to Pasig to kidnap Threadhead Teng and prepare for our sortie up north to Bulacan. It was already around 3am when we finally left the internet cafe slash tambayan. The plan was to drop me somewhere in Plaridel, where Tita 9 and the gang were pitting themselves on a videoke spree for their company outing! It was already 4am though when we finally reached that far-flung spot... but not without mucho tox about ghosts and supernatural entities... and cholesterol! Aray! Thanks Arvs and Fred Tee for the ride!


Maundy Thursday
Woke up later that day with mere 2 hours of sleep. Zombie!

Prepared for the loooong hike to Baguio, with dusty traffic and all. We had two stops: a lunch bash in Tarlac (sisig in the grub list!) and a short stretching stint on a petrol station in La Union before climbing Mister Kennon's highway.

Attendance: Tita 9, Cardinal Aeron Boy, Aina - Ang Orange Santo Niño, Randell - Ang Duwendeng Violet, Kimpoy, Labtik, Dyulyan - Batang Pasaway, Kitten alyas Pom Pom alyas Mister Goat

Photo ops kasama yung Lion na kamukha ni Beast.

Arrived at Munsayac Inn before dinner. The place was a perfect setup for a ghost film: gloomy environ, eerie wallpapers, wooden furnitures, classic chandeliers, and an antiquated feel on the air. Don't get me wrong though. Their services and the place by itself is awesome. Even the Quizon's Boy 2 and Epi and their gang were there that time.


Good Friday
Usual Baguio lakwatsa routine...

Duwendeng Violet, Pom Pom the Goat, Kardinal Otistik, Orange Santo Niño

*SM-Baguio (bought me some shirts since I wasn't able to bring lots for this trip)
*Burnham Park (strawberry taho)
*Ukay Ukay (got me a new backpack that iL prolly stick to my back for the next year)
*Baguio Cathedral (prayed that Batgurl was there with us hehe)
*Wright (?) Park
*The Mansion (happy birthday, President I'm-Sorry)
*Mine's View Park (bought another pair of Batman earrings since I lost mines in Sydney)

I asked Iday what she wanted for pasalubong. Ube daw. I always have doubts of bringing ube home from Baguio since I know it won't last long. Nevertheless, ube it is! Dasal dasal na lang na umabot ng Manila ng hindi panis.

Departed PMA Alumni Memorial

Holy Saturday
Prepped up for the voyage back to Manila.

We heard that Ante Budat died the previous day. She was the eldest sister of my paternal Lola. I remembered her as the jolly granny that visited us from time to time in Lipa when I was still a kid... always an unfading smile on her face. May she rest with the Lord God's graces now.

Along the way, the gang stopped on a roadside arcade to have some last minute spending spree. I got me my salad greens, of course! Lettuce, lollo rosas, and cucumbers to last us a week. After that, some last minutes decisions sent us rolling for the PMA Compound along Loakan Road. As we strolled inside the camp, I smiled to myself for the fact that if things had ran differently in the past, I was in that same place... bored, tired, and prolly pained of the physical and mental rigors imparted to the cadets.

Going on, our next stop was in La Union for a quick lunch. After that, we passed by Manaoag, Pangasinan, just in time to catch a glimpse of the Our Lady of Manaoag before it was removed from its altar in preparation for the following day's Easter celebration.

We arrived in Tita 9's condo before dinnertime. That was after a brief sidetrip to Dangwa to buy flowers for Ante Budat.


Easter Sunday
Pouty arrived at the condo from work. Joyness! She's still wearing my earring. Hee hee hee.

Kelangan talaga bully-hin si Bunny? Wawa. Pero ang kyut kyut nila both!

We (Bubay, her, and me) watched "Tenacious D" in DVD. Classic Jack Black film! Idol, man. Ok, it was one of those films that you could say outright brainless but the whole concept of how they patterned the movie to be like a musical play and remain funny was engaging. Kaso tinulugan ni Lytot. Hehe.

Ayan pantay na. Pintsik na preho.

Ganda daw ng shirt na binili ko sa Baguio. Weehee. Dahil dyan isang buwan ko siyang isusuot dito sa opisina ng walang labahan. Nyahaha. Nek nek.

After she woke up, we headed to Loyola in Guadalupe for Ante Budat's wake. We stayed there until late night before going back to the condo. Iday got words that she had a perfect score for their work's customer survey. Galing naman.

Sa condo that night, we tried to watch "Borat"... or at least they tried to watch it. To no avail! It was just too dumb to be appreciated. We stopped the movie in midstream and called it a night.

Birthday pala ng dad ng sister ko! Haberdey!


Kagitingan Monday
Nag titigan lang kaming lahat sa condo. I think I was still worn-out from the trip that I dozed off the whole afternoon. Same goes for Pom Pom.

After waking up, we watched the animated Tarzan film in DVD. As usual, nakatulog na naman si Batgurl. That day, the crib's internet connection went back online so after watching the movie, I went to check my web stuffs. One full office week without checking the internet or facing a PC was not that hard, I realized.

Cardinal Aeron headed for his Nursing duties.

By 11pm, I prepped up my things for home. Awww... olats! Bye, Pouty. Di ko na naman alam kung kelan ulit kami makakatambay together. I could always drop by her place or her work... always... kahit araw araw, kahit saan, I would love to! But I'm the kind who respects other people's time and space that if I can't have that affirmation to come, then I'd rather not go. Masaya ako pag kasama ko siya, but who knows if she feels the same for me? So until that time, I will be careful not to be the stereotypical nuisance for her. Hope she'll never have to look at me that way.

Hindi aninag, but we're spelling her name

At home, na-miss daw ako ni Mommy. Inuwian ko siya ng tshirt na puti at strawberry wine. Sayangs, di ko na inabot na gising ang twins. Kinabukasan ko na lang sila kinulit.

Attendance: Cheng Nguso, Bon Pengo, Long Palong, Liz Arap and Lei Arap, Randell Hash, Badong Pendong, Mommy Bisangsang, Inday

Ako naman ang bully! (Obi, Pouty, Bunny, Kim)

Back-to-Work Tuesday
Same o', same o' stuffs! The team was loaded to the teeth with work tasks!

Got this CD copies of "Prison Break Season 2" from an officemate, episodes 11 to 22. Had them burned para kay Lytot.

After work, me, Ranger Roy, and Koya Chris met the guys from Check Systems (?) for some basketball games. Venue was at the open court of the Makati Stock Exchange in Ayala Avenue. I still have my left knee hurting a bit but I managed to sort of play on par with my normal gaming. We won three games straight last night but I have to give our opponent the kuddos for the tight challenge. Sana maging regular kami dito every week. It's cheaper here and closer too than from where we usually play in San Miguel Village with the HP dudes.


Weekday Warrior Wednesday
Same o', same o' stuffs at work today! Pinansin nilang lahat ang bago kong backpack. Cutey naman kasi talaga e. Takaw atensyon. Got it for only 300+ bucks sa ukay sa Baguio.

I also just declined the Mount Gulugod Baboy climb this coming weekend. Can't really commit my remaining weekends for this month, me thinks. Sayang. Gusto ko pa naman talaga sumama.

Later tonight, there'll be another tambay session on a friend's office in Greenbelt. Chillax lang and hobby gaming to detox.

sikat talaga ang baguio for ukay-ukay, mga kaibigan ko nakibili ng mganorth face jacket sa murang halaga, kaso alam na rin nila ang mga branded kaya minsan tinatago at binebenta sa mahal na halaga :)
