The United States will soon have a black president.( my fearless forecast, ehem hes leading the polls right? and Oprah is campaigning him.) The idea of double standard was primed and cooked by the people of America who had this significant bias between white skinned people (or fair-skinned for that matter) and the dark ones. I remember this one episode of Grey's Anatomy wherein one white patient pleaded to get medical cure from a white fellow only. I know you know how cruel it is to live that stage of America. Today, the stigma remains. Discrimination for skin color still exist.
Now, Filipinos, being a prime follower of anything American embraced this mind-set too. Notice how Glutathione craze raved our country. Notice how dark skin is associated so much to ugliness. Notice how people tag "looking fresh and good" to people with fair skin. Notice how almost all Pinoy celebrities are "bond paper" white. Notice that most well-moneyed people are white too. And notice how advertising sides to those endorser with fair skin only.
Kapag maputi ka sa Pilipinas, crush ka ng bayan. But I believe that the true test of aesthetic beauty is looking good in black or white.

Talk about non-adulterated politicians and Noli de Castro will be my top-of-mind. He may have gotten through the mainstreams of TV broadcast and Philippine politics but he maintained a friendly personality and clear mass appeal. I am really a fan and I will dare go through a war of jargons against those blabber-mouths that say an avalanche of distracting words to defeat Noli's ever composed mantra.
I like this idea that he said in one of the most talked about noon time show hosted by of course, one of the most talked about male celebrity. VP Noli de Castro said and I quote in a non-specific manner-
"mabuti nang nandito ka sa iyong programa, mahusay kang nakakatulong. Sa gobyerno, tumutulong ka nga, pero pera pa rin yun ng gobyerno di ba?"
point made strongly, right?

Now, I will leave it to my raiders to decide whether there is a sting of error in this line below-
"You know what my mom always told me... look your best always, you'll never know who you'll run into...."
or whether it is correct.

First of all, this is not an attempt to overcast or even try to overcast "Nakanampucha".
This is an attention catcher name and ohhhh interesting logo layout for a laundry shop.
Ask if it offers "extra" service? I beg not to divulge about that.

Everyone, meet my makers- Lucia Guevara and Rogelio Claves. This is a vintage shot of their prom way back who knows when. My parents has been together for so long, they already stopped counting. It is nice to know that my tatay is my mama's first boyfriend, and first and ahem, only husband. I dont know, but I am aware that this kind of romantic relationship is so retro and is rare nowadays. As parents, I could not dare ask for a replacement. I wont even dare articulate how good they are for my tears might destroy my pc. My tatay works abroad and its been really ages since the last time he went home. I know that this is so personal to publish here that is why i'll keep this one short.
I am just so excited to see my tatay again and show him how far i have improved from that lazy boy that will always frown whenever he ask me to buy some nails for his hobby of crafting anything that is wood.
March 28 and Rogelio, the real elclaves shall grace his motherland again.

Its not bad to do unguarded acts once in a while.
These acts make you feel good.
These acts make you feel like human.
Its not bad to drink 5 cups of coffeein a day within a week.
Its not bad to sleep for 12 hours.
Its not bad to go out and rave every food store there is.
Its not bad to spend 8 hours in gaming stations and splurge on to play like you want to break the console.
Its not bad to sing your lungs out in a singing lounge and feel like you are getting every tune right. go on, belt it out.
Its not strange to wake up and sit in a couch and just stare blank on the tv.
Its not bad to have long, ear-soring phone chat with someone you like.
Its not bad to doodle on your walls.
Its not bad to get drunk and speak words you are discreet about.
Its not bad to muse at good looking people inside the train, or in the mall perhaps.
Its not bad to go on top of the building and shout your hate notes to he world.
Its not bad finish off one box of family size pizza on your own.
Its not bad to fight with your siblings once in a while.
Its not bad to laugh hard over one corny joke.
Its not bad to feel that your the greatest once in a while.
Its not bad to feel bad.
happy Wednesday everyone.

kuya edwin was really nervous as accounted by my mama. Sean is in a bad mood for he will surely miss school the next day. My mother is of course excited and teary-eyed. My sister? pushing of course.
Before the daytime expose itself, a new symbol of manhood came into existence (solid existence- that is). The new man of the dela Pierre family and the new joy of my mom Lucia.
Presenting everyone, in color water effect. Graphically manipulated by yours truly. Sean's brother, my sister's child, my parents' new joy ( and there i go sounding like its such an honor to be part of our family.), and my nephew,of course.
The new dude,
Santino Rylle Claves dela Pierre

In my case, 2007 definitely was a blessed year. The year when I finished school. The year when our class won the adclash- sweet sweep. The year when I became a part of the Alchemy family. The year when my new nephew, santino came into our family. Now, alongside with the blessings are mishaps of course(damn it). I am sad to say that I lost track of some the most important people in my super life.
Now, 2008 is here. There's no holding back to the year that was. Instead, we shall keep high hopes and include one higher lift for this year ahead.
opppz, this photo was taken not during the new year's eve. I was busy glazing at the fire works. So forgive me for this.
