Bleateries: The Cheese Steak Shop Manila Giveaway
You Are What eWe Eat

First of all, I apologize to The Cheese Steak Shop Manila for doing that feature. I understand that my post brought about unintended consequences to their respected institution. They said: “There is no explanation for the sudden increase in Italian Hoagie sales other than the timeliness of your write-up.” I truly am sorry for this

Bleateries: The Cheese Steak Shop Manila
You Are What eWe Eat

I’m convinced, at this point, that sharing my face publicly is a guarantee that something pleasantly weird will occur. The Cheese Steak Shop Manila sponsored a Facebook contest late last year, which I joined by sharing a photo of myself in Philadelphia. The photo came from this earlier post about – well – Philly cheesesteak.

Tracts and Field Trips

Hi kids! I understand that you traveled a long way from the province today for your field trip. Well, good for you! It is a special day in Quezon City, being the birth anniversary of Manuel L. Quezon himself, so… welcome to SM North EDSA. What the hell?

 

Wet and Wildlife

This is crazy weather. I hope everyone out there is safe and dry. Our village has been spared for the most part, thankfully. Our office compound, though a bit flooded, has also been relatively unscathed. The waters weren’t too deep such that our personnel were only able to catch some catfish swimming in our garage.

European Idol

I admire and appreciate your capacity for cultural tolerance. Had I known, I wouldn’t have suggested Greenhills as your first stop, not when you look like a younger Kirk Long.

Musings on Motorcycle Mortality

I see that EDSA now has designated motorcycle lanes. I guess this is good news for most, especially for those who’ve always thought that those broken white lines qualify as motorcycle lanes. This must suck for most motorcyclists, I expect. It can’t be said, however, that the government does not have their best interests in

Mart Time Lover

I realize that my token Chinese New Year post isn’t as exuberant as it should have been. I apologize for that. Please don’t read it here. It’s not fun to read if you like tikoy. I was grouchy and overworked and I wanted to be grouchy and drunk. Today, I shall post about something closer

Chafing the Dragon

thanks, Wikimedia You’d think that I would know a thing or two about Chinese New Year, being a third generational Chinese Filipino. You’d think that I would know at least that it’s happening today even when it seems that everybody else is reminding me about it. Make no mistake, I like that the Philippines has
