still an egg

Just in case you forgot. I am an egg. 1. seriously, i can’t 2. don’t feel like doing anything 3. ahh…I want to live a stable life. nope, never. 4. if you’re going to be late anyway, why don’t you stay back a year? 5. who cares about the weather, i don’t go out anyway…

ArtFairPH 2016 (a photodump)

I went to the ArtFairPH last February to satisfy my ravenous appetite for art, good company and pretentious wine. I went first on a Friday night with C (and there’s a long story there involving traffic, impulsive life decisions, a potted plant, and a job interview), then on Saturday afternoon with my sis. I will say that…

Isn’t that neat? Also, I’ve been using the mobile…

Rights to Padre Faura (a rant on inconsiderate rallyists)

Many destructive elements and relationships exist in modern Philippine society. The coercive and oppressive framework of organized religions is one of them; the muddied relationship of the State and of the Church is another (the problem is still mostly in favor of the Church). Democracy in the Philippines and the right to accessible information are…
