On the Lamb: Dutch Treat
The Bloggist Is Away

Hello again, GMT +8! I went on leave near the end of August for a vacation. I came back, two weeks later, to find shopping malls convinced that it’s already Christmas. Merry Christmas, Manila. It’s good to be back.


On the Lamb: Two Weeks’ Notice
The Bloggist Is Away

Looks like I have no choice but to do some travel pieces, after all. Sell out. I hope they won’t be as difficult as THIS FIRST ONE. See you in a couple of weeks!


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.

Perchance to Dream

Running in the rain at dawn gives a weirdly peaceful feeling. It clears the head, so much that it somehow qualifies as meditation. As it happened, my short bit at ‘meditation’ this morning helped me assemble a short list of musings and observations: 1.)  Anxiety gets in the way of a good night’s sleep, especially

The Long and Short of It

Even before txtspeak came into common use for Pinoys, we already had a tendency to abbreviate phrases into pocket-sized terms. For one thing, we really like our acronyms as a people. Had the invention of I.T.A.L.Y. been documented, we would definitely celebrate that day as a national holiday. If you care for your healthy eyes,

The Eyes Have It

By now, it has probably dawned on my devoted readership (countable on one hand less several fingers) that this bloggist became M.I.A. for the past two weeks. It is not my intention to let this electro-blog stagnate through my absence, because this electro-blog can stagnate well enough on its own, thank you very much. Nonetheless,

Days of Future Past

· · · — — — · · · Howdy, earthling! This electro-transmission shall reach you in the year 2012 A.D., early in the month of May. You have not been abandoned. The bloggist responsible for this electro-blog is merely stranded in the future, which, through your linear perception, is about twenty days ‘after’ the time that you receive this. You may have

Reality Bite

I just realized how boring my life is upon finding that most of my friends’ Facebook status updates yesterday and today stated that they were ‘coming back to reality’. And I stayed in Quezon City. What kind of witchcraft is this? We all know how reality is a just a human construct. Reality is everything

Talk Is Sheep

Having just seen the busiest month in its three-month existence, this blog took an undeserved break last week, along with the rest of the metro. Ain’t that appropriate? In lieu of posting about this blog’s holy week operating hours, this bloggist took advantage of this break by locking himself inside the house to shout at
