Attended Teng's birthday last night. The party was really a blast--the booze was overflowing and the food was just perfect! Teng's a chef, too, aside from being a filmmaker.

Went there with housemate Jim. We were later joined by friends, one of them Sarah, Teng's cousin.

But I never thought that I would be revisiting something in my past that night. That I will keep to myself now. That particular past I have no regrets of having experienced because it taught me not be hooked on it and other things associated with it.

But I became kind of excited when it was showed to me by Teng's long time buddy.Excited because I thought I would get a part of it. But perhaps Teng's boy was too excited than I am that he brushed off my salivating over it. Yeah, he got it all by himself. Wondering what happened, I excused myself and looked for Teng's buddy only to find him on the floor. Asleep.

I asked.
He was answering in gibberish.
I bugged.
"Nandoon...ubos na...wala na...nandoon," he said.

And yeah, we had Madonna keep us company the entire night. Teng earlier told us how he became too emotional upon hearing Madonna's Borderline. Madonna? Borderline? Tearjerker?

"Kasi dahil sa kanta na yan na-realize ko na bakla pala ako," he said.

Now, sharing to you Borderline. Not Madonna's but Jody Watley's.



Massive cheating and fraud, not to mention hundreds of deaths, yet again characterized the electoral process of the Philippines--cases that dangled the credibility of the country to protect the people against violence and raised questions on the sincerity of the politicians to protect the people.

Only in the Philippines, as one of the international observers pointed out, that politicians kill their rivals in their bid to serve the people.

It's only in the Philippines where one delusional boxing champion bets on politics perhaps thinking that the political arena is where fighting cocks tear-off each other's flesh.

It's only in this country, too, that a politician like Butch Pichay, someone described by militants as a rabid lapdog of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, desires to be in the senate--actually wanted to be "implanted" in the senate--the same chamber that he so wanted abolished before.

But enough with the rant for now.

After having been absent for weeks, sadly because of the elections and some election-related responsibilties, I finally had the time, actually more of the urge, to revisit Life In Between Bananasplit and write.

I have a lot of things in mind. I so wanted to share with those who have been pouring in their time to visit this page, a recent experience. Pero wag na muna ngayon---share ko na muna itong natisod ko sa youtube.

Enjoy mga magaganda. From the movie Summer Storm. Tapos ang song na ito ay kanta ni Vienna Teng (Pontchartrain)
