i keep hearing clinton and trump campaigning to minorities a lot lately. but i don’t hear them or their surrogates mentioning asian-americans. it’s always muslims, latinos, african americans and mexicans. why is that?
is it because our demographic doesn’t matter? that we’ve integrated so successfully that we’re almost invisible? that we’re so stoic and not as vocal as the other minorities that politicians don’t give a shit?
i became a US citizen on the 11th of august, 2015. that december, i turned 50 years old. this coming november, I will be voting in a US election, for the first time, at 50 years old. it thrills me no end.
it’ll be exciting. the presidential elections is historic in so many ways and here i am, an immigrant, an asian-american, born in the philippines, a radical rabble-rouser, subversive, troublemaker, loud, incendiary, provocateur, rebel. i can’t wait to vote.
put your eye on the road, your hands behind the wheel.
We used to play Side B of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon at the parties in Novaliches back in the day because you could slow dance with the girl of your dreams for over 15 minutes. Tigas titi time indeed.
august 1, 2016. today is a personal milestone.
it’s my 15th year anniversary at (INSERT COMPANY NAME HERE) and the longest that I have been employed in any one organization. what can I say, I love what I do.
more than that though, today marks the 15th year that I’ve been an overseas filipino. many things have changed but 2 countries, 6 house moves, 8 job functions and 1 citizenship change later, in my heart of hearts, I still am the rabble-rouser, subversive, troublemaker, loud, incendiary, provocateur, rebel kid.

longganizang pinoy – maliit lang pero malasa 🙂
maynila, o maynila: actually quezon city kuha sa itaas ng trinoma 🙂
eto ang mga nabili kong libro nung umuwi ako sa bayang magiliw. tipikal pinoy bookshit 🙂
sana lahat ng tao sa mundo ay makatikim ng manggang pinitas sa bayang magiliw. pero huwag na lang, gusto ko, tayo lamang ang makakakain nito.
dear mang boy,
muntik na akong pumasok sa ladies room ng mall kanina kasi may lumabas na babaeng mukhang lalaki. napahiya ako.
dear mang boy,
ang ibig sabihin ba nito eh kaya magandang negosyo ang funenarya sa baying magiliw ay dahil maraming mamamatay na mga masasamang tao sa pag-upo ni duterte?
PS oo nga pala, naisip ko rin ito: kung extrajudicial killing na rin lamang ang plataporma ng papasok na administrasyon eh pwede bang unahin na nila yung mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno?
