all eyes on BF

well, let’s see.

election time’s coming up and our good MMDA Chairman is on the roll.

for the past few years, i have openly expressed my dislike and discontent for Bayani Fernando’s gestapo tactics and blatant abuse of power.

but this time, let’s give him a little fighting chance. i’m thinking, why not advertise Bayani Fernando?!

i’ll link his campaign website! ahaha. done in very good taste, as it is very consistent with his choice of colors and design.

and of course, you have here the MMDA website.

see the difference?


the TnL blog has done some snooping around with the MMDA website and said this because they found this.

but seriously, also, see his Metro Gwapo profile on Political to know more. i confess that i do need to do some more reading on BF.


on a more recent event, i hear people grumbling about the crazy traffic on Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City, in front of the Ateneo University on workweek mornings.

well, people say that that there’s a new U-turn scheme which they say was not announced. because of the misinformation, motorists who frequent the area tend to stick to their usual routes causing the traffic.

there have been many re-routings before. many accidents have been reported due to these ‘misplaced’ U-turns. a friend’s car was hit. with her was a promising Ateneo high school varsity player. the kid was directly hit. he died. this happened some time in 2005.

however, the MMDA has this to say on the matter. read it here and here.

despite all the talk, i’ll just stick with what TnL has to say.

basta, DIGz na lang, pare. ahaha.


Tunay na LaLake daw si BF?!

those TnL guys are really fucked up.

after saying that BF “ay ‘di Tunay na Lalake,” they suddenly take it back and say he is one.

but i do believe their rationale is undebatable.

kaya nga DIGz ito, mga tol!

on level ground

reveling the moment. even though there isn’t much to see.

French Film Festival synopses

featured films’ synopses grabbed from read them here.

wanted to go later with the gang but am too busy with the laundry and the take home assignment. i still have to cook. ugh. i hope i could still have the time to grab tickets even if it’s already late.

for those of you who have seen some of the films, which one would you recommend?

me, i’m bent on 400 blows. it’s by auteur Truffaut, surely it must be good. 😀
