It's good to be back... finally!

It seems forever since my last blog here in mapangurirat. Truth be told, i felt that the well is drying up. Sigh. But here i am again, fresh from my long break. I haven't had the leisure of opening my gmail as well. When i did open it yesterday, i was pleasently surprised that my friend of 28 years, Prof. Jerick aguilar has finally replied to an email i sent him middle of march. I'm glad to know he's happy with his travelling, and that he won two tickets to Paris. Jake, fyi, is a professor at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. He was my classmate back in elementary at Angelicum. He is now in Tunisia and will soon be based in Yemen. I heard he's doing research for the United Nations. His essay on his travels was published at Philstar.com. I'll post the link as soon as i get the chance to copy it.

During my long break from blogging, i got a chance to visit my sister's house in Tandang Sora and found that her Jurrasic Park-inspired garden is gone and has been replaced by her own personal Zen Garden. There's a very big difference between the before and after.

Also during my break, i managed to catch up on the latest inside the Big brother house and was not surprised that the PBB people are still shamelessly shamming their hard-earned text money. Now they saw it fit to fool the people by pretending to evict wendy, nel and mickey, and then letting mickey and wnedy go back. Now the people will have to vote (AGAIN) for the "big 4". For a TV Station that makes a big deal out of poll fraud, they sure are enjoying their own version of it. This is a good case of the pot calling the kettle black.

I also got a chance to see "Life and Death of a Pumpkin" by Blame Society productions over at grouper. Man, that was some short flick and i salute the people who did the film. That was certainly a different take on halloween. Kudos!

More of the things i did during my break tomorrow.
