Frank, I'll Get You!

Friday - "Cinema Snafus"
Da Shak, QC

From work, dumiretso ako sa tambayan sa Virramall. It's already weeks since the last time I was able to hangout with the boyz and it'z nice to be back! After mall closing, me, Pookiemonster, Fluffy, and Hairy Critter headed to the latter's house to grab some grub and noticing that those weren't enough to satiate the Maws waiting at da Shak, we drove by Tiendesitas to buy s'more! Beer sausage, hotdogs, bologna, 3 x 2.0 liters Cox, and Shin/Yul Ramen in the grocery cart.

Walang okasyon pero gadami ng pagkain. Shin at Yul Ramen ay parang kanin ng Shak pagnagti-trip. Shin Ramen is a Korean spicy noodle (think Jammpong!). Pero kumbaga Level 1 ang anghang nito (pero maanghang na sya, peksman). Yul Ramen ang Level 2! Sabi nga ng tropa namin (the late Mark, R.I.P.), "Yul (you'll) live to regret eating it! If it's hot coming in, it'L be hot coming out!" Haha. We miss you, Mark.

Shak Attendance: Kaptin Kantor, Pork, Hairy Critter, Kuya Ian, Jumping Johnny, Phatboi Jason, Jep, Fluffy, Pookiemonster, Riderman and Bebop

denizens of da Shak

As we grog down on the arse-cracking super spicy noodle concoction (tulo na ang uhog and all), the Riderman arrived with ill tidings. His movie (after 5 drafts!) was being deferred by this head honcho of a big movie outfit for some BS reasons. He'd been working with the script, casting, and all for quite some time now and we (if i can manage an "escape artist" move here at work) were already scheduled to journey far North to watch the actual shoot maybe two weeks from now (libre dinner daw from a local pulitiko friend). Di ko alam if it will push through pa. They'll be working on a compromise with the head honcho I think.

Kaptin Kantor: bading yang si #$*% noh?
Shak Boyz: *paused to wait for the answer*
Riderman: *nods, then grogged down his cox*
Kaptin Kantor: 'nuff said. *then returns drawing on the logs*
Jep: 'nuff said. *then returns to his laptop*
Obi Doo: haha 'nuff said!
Shak Boyz: *nods agreement, laughing*

Then Fluffman had this idea when the movie starts to shoot. Ang ipapasuot daw sa lead character na shirt ay may nakasulat na Thai phrase (Fluff speaks and writes Thai), "*insert honcho's name here* sucks!"... Hahaha.


Saturday - "City for All Seasons"
Lipa City, Batangas

Frank's starting to make his presence felt. Despite it, me and the brother headed South to attend my inaanak's birthday in Shakey's - Lipa. We got there just in time.

cutey Beah and the proud and equally cute Ninong!
(kumontra kokotongan ko ng malakas! walang biro.)

Anlaki laki niya na! And she's getting prettier as she grow.

Nakaka-miss ang Lipa! I was just here a month ago when Bonita returned from NY but I wasn't able to visit back on places. Next time, iL gonna sched a weekend just to roam around. My kumpare and his bro updated me about a LOT of happenings in our place. I spent my highschool days on that village and now our house there was on lease as I and the rest of the family moved to Manila.

I saw a couple of familiar places in Shakey's after the kiddie party. Nakita ko yung isa sa bestfriends ng sis ko and her equally gorgeous sis. Too bad nanay na sila both at such ages. Awk! Verily, I iz too late. There was also Tita Amy, head namin dati sa catechism works. My other sister was in Lipa that time too but we din't met up with her. She was attending a bridal shower for a batchmate of mine in highschool and to my suprise, one of the bridesmaid was a schoolmate too who happened to be the first girl that I gave flowers to! Haha astig.

2nd year - Class 502, uso pa ang buhok-kachupoy!

Liligawan ko kasi dapat itong girl na ito back then. But for some reasons, hindi ko itinuloy. Di ko aamining dahil natorpe ako haha. Now she was a Miss World titlist so kamusta naman ako! At least, she still remembers me sabi ng sis ko sa akin. Sabi niya daw, "Si Randell Parcon, yung officer!" hehe (officer ako sa CAT noon). Nalaman niya na sis ko pala yung kasama niya sa entourage just that night.

What else? After Shakey's, I met with Jai and Efren. Highschool buddies. Back then, si Jai ang kapatid ko kuno at si Efren ang tatay namin kuno. Hindi available that night si Teta (ang nanay namin kuno) at si Wendy, ang president na sugarol ng Class 306 (ako ang vice president noon... na sugarol din haha!) pero dapat kasama namin sila.

Before Frank could mount up his fits, we were able to haul our arses back to Manila. Anticipating still that I could play airsoft the next day. Inayos ko pa din outfit at duffel bag ko. Assssaaaa...


Sunday - "Hello Frank!"
Home, Pasay

As early as 6AM, may confirmations na sa text na hindi tuloy ang airsoft. Pupungas pungas pa kong sumilip sa bintana at TADA! Bumabagyo sa labas. Argh. Ayaw talaga kami paglaruin ni Gelo ng airsoft. Twice na nanyari to. May balat ka sa wetpaks, Bozz!

Tumambay lang ako sa bahay the whole day... *nagbukas ang langit* Alleluiah!!! Me and "home on a weekend" just don't match.

Kaya kating kati na akong lumabas pero wala akong magawa. Wala mom ko and kami lang ng bro ko at home. Titigan kaming dalawa. Kalabit kalabit ng gitara. Lakad akyat baba, akyat baba. Hilata, tulog, kain. Hilata, tulog, kain. Sumakit likod ko kakatulog. That evening, I just painted my miniatures, read books, and played this game in PSP I was currently hooked on.

a Space Marine miniature that I finished painting that night
(for size comparison, the black base is just as big as a peso coin)

Hay! May araw ka din, Frank!


Monday - "Caring Circle"
Office - Makati / CBI - Jupiter

What I thought was a typical petiks day... NOT.

Dumating ang trabaho ng hapon and I was literally yelling "saaaaave meeeeh!" to my seatmates (well, partly just to make em laugh).

By lunchtime, me, Arn Arn, and "the other Mike" went to Makati Cinema Square to check on the band rehearsal room that we might rent when we get our "band thingy" together. Two hundred bucks per hour is not bad. A brief visit to check out new guitar stocks in Audiophile followed next. I was considering buying a bass guitar again to practice at home. Kaya yung mga may kilala dyan, second hands would be good too basta nasa 10K ang budget.

After work, I went to meet Pam and Philip to go to our CC orientation in Chicken Bacolod Inasal. It was good. It always felt good to be with the class. It was a nice break from a day's "busy-ness" where everything (from deadlines to extra-curricular stuffs) is an amalgam of random events zipping here and there... unstoppably quick to a point that you just accept it as part of your daily life (may its purpose be to your liking or not).

Parang biglang "hep hep hep... tama na muna yan" then you breathe out. A nice break, indeed.

I love SE14.
