Instant Boyfriend?

Sunday, the phone rings...
its Mom...

Conversation:

Mom: hi, mga anak, kmusta n dalaga ko?
Me: fine mom
Mom: me boyfriend ka na?
Me: huh?

I swear, everytime na lang, walang sawa, paulit ulit, walang tigil, di pumapalya.
I wanted to say ... Mom, katatawag mo lng last week, its been 5 days...
How can you expect me to find a Boyfriend?

Finding a boyfriend is a process, a long process. you don't just go to a fastfood counter and order an instant boyriend. (upsize, with extras on the side)
it takes time...

You see each other, you talk, he gets your number, he calls (or text depending on his time and budget) you go on a date, you talk, you go home, he calls you, you go on a date again, you talk, he pays, you talk some more, he takes you home, he calls again or sends flowers the next day, he visits you at home, fetches you from work, invites you out again... and maybe, after all this... just maybe - if he looks and behaves good enough, he becomes your boyfriend... Maybe?

See, its a long process, which would take approximately a month if not more...since meeting a guy who is willing to go through all those and more is a rare enough occurence.

See what happens (based on a true experience):

You meet, he talks, he gets your number and talks some more (about his life, achevements, salary, exes, boss, family, car, savings account, problems, issues in life, etc.) he calls, talks about himself some more, asks you out, girl says no, but guy couldn't take a hint and still keeps on pestering you.

See what i mean?

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"


The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.


Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

Singapore

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)



Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

March 8: International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8th each year.

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
