the basic difference between my brother and me...

RANDOM MEMORY...

We were traveling to Baguio. He was driving. I saw a tree in the middle of a field. 

I told him... "ANG SARAP MAG PICNIC DIYAN!"
His quick answer... "AYOKO DIYAN, MADAMING LANGGAM."

[I rest my case]

 

my weekend in pics

What do you do when Donavon Frankenreiter goes North to Elyu to sing in a concert sponsored by Sanuk and all your surf friends are going? 

You go south to Calatagan, Batangas.




Yeah, it was a steady weekend. Almost perfect too. But I had this weird friend who made it imperfect with her irritating idiotic, stoned gibberish/shit.

‘Hooray for Hollywood’ on Taal Volcano Island

By

 635 share8111  7415

HOLLYWOOD, HOLY COW! This is how Taal Volcano would look from the 
Tagaytay ridge once a giant “Batangas” sign is put up on the island as 
approved by the Hollywood-inspired Batangas provincial government. 
The idea was conceived by movie star-Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto.

BATANGAS CITY—It was something only a movie star could have conceived.
Why not put up a towering “Batangas” sign on Taal Volcano island similar to the “Hollywood” sign in Los Angeles, California?
The provincial council approved on October 5 a resolution supporting the idea of Governor Vilma Santos-Recto, the award-winning actress, to erect a hard-to-miss landmark and potential tourism draw, according to Vice Governor Mark Leviste II.
Emelie Katigbak, officer in charge of the Batangas tourism office, said floating restaurants or fish pens can be set up on Taal Lake in such a way that their layout would form the famous Batangueño expression “Ala Eh.”
It could be such a dazzling sight especially if lit up at night, she said.

14-meter letters
Leviste said the idea was based on the premise that the scenic volcano and the lake surrounding it “form the heart of Batangas. The geography of the province suggests that (they are) at the center of the province.”
Also, history had shown that Batangueños were blessed with rich and fertile agricultural lands thanks to the volcano’s past eruptions, he said.
He said the proposed sign would be painted white and positioned following the contours of the island volcano. The letters would be 14 meters tall and stretch for about 110 meters.
The font would be similar to that of the iconic Hollywood signage, the official added.
“It is not an out-of-this-world concept. It’s a simple development which can easily attract attention and even visitors to the area,” Leviste said.


Identity crisis
Leviste said the signage would help establish the identity of the lake and volcano as part of Batangas—and not of Tagaytay City, which lies within the neighboring province of Cavite.
He said the volcano was often mistakenly identified as part of Tagaytay, a mountain resort city which offers a picturesque view of Taal.
In a text message, Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham Tolentino maintained that the city had never laid claim to either the lake or the volcano.
“However, the best view of Taal Volcano is from the ridge of Tagaytay City where the best photos are shot, the best hotels and restaurants are found and the perfect weather is felt,” Tolentino said.
“Thank God, He created the volcano in Batangas so that Tagaytay will have the best view,” the mayor said.

‘But why?’
Tolentino, however, questioned the Hollywood-inspired design for the island, flatly saying: “Why put up a Batangas sign? It won’t help.”
“People, while sipping a cup of coffee, will just say that the view is more beautiful from Tagaytay without that sign,” Tolentino said with a hint of a warning.
Expect a “global reaction” once that plan pushes through, he said.
“It’s a sign of what? Bicolanos will not put an ‘Albay’ (sign) on Mayon Volcano. (Their officials) would not destroy the view of Mayon. They are not insecure,” Tolentino said.

shoe stylin' sub cult

Saw these kicks at the mall yesterday. Proof that the shoes hitting our shores are getting bolder and bolder. Suddenly, we ain't just a sneaker nation anymore.
 

lucky effin bastard

In this country [da Phils], you can get away with drinking and driving. Get away from the law I mean. But not from the hospital or worse the grim reaper. 

Saturday early morning. Going home from my friend Terence's birthday celebration. I was drunk. I drove home. Routine. Just like any other drinking night. You see I usually drink in Makati but live a good 20kms or more away. In Tandang Sora, QC to be exact. I've usually survived this. Joked about it the next day. Calling it my "auto-pilot" mode. My friends have always been concerned about this. When we drink, they always want me to sleep over or don't bother me when I doze off while drinking. 

Anyway, back to my story. I was driving home drunk. Routine right? But this time, I fell asleep "momentarily." When I woke up a few seconds after, I saw a parked truck in front of me. I was LUCKY enough to wake up, swerve to the left, and avoid it. Good thing no one hit me when I swerved.

LUCKY [pardon my french but I need this for emphasis...]FUCKING BASTARD.

If you're religious you'd say I was saved by my guardian angel.

Whatever. Lesson learned. I'm too old for this shit. My body is saying so even if my mind isn't.

I will never ever slosh myself to death [pun intended] ever again.









hollywood + us marines sub cult


I was "re-watching" this movie the other day on Star Movies. It isn't considered to be an all time box office hit. Hell, it isn't even considered to be on anyone's list of top ten movies of all time. But... its contribution to the best lines that has ever come out of the Hollywood celluloid machine is invaluable. Check out its most famous lines below...


Col. Jessep: I run my unit how I run my unit. You want to investigate me, roll the dice and take your chances. I eat breakfast 300 yards from 4000 Cubans who are trained to kill me, so don't think for one second that you can come down here, flash a badge, and make me nervous.

Col. Jessep: We follow orders, son. We follow orders or people die. It's that simple. Are we clear?
Kaffee: Yes sir.
Col. Jessep: Are we clear?
Kaffee: Crystal. 


Judge Randolph: *Consider yourself in Contempt!*
Kaffee: *Colonel Jessep, did you order the Code Red?*
Judge Randolph: You *don't* have to answer that question!
Col. Jessep: I'll answer the question!
[to Kaffee]
Col. Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I think I'm entitled to.
Col. Jessep: *You want answers?*
Kaffee: *I want the truth!*
Col. Jessep: *You can't handle the truth!*
[pauses]
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Kaffee: Did you order the Code Red?
Col. Jessep: I did the job I...
Kaffee: *Did you order the Code Red?*
Col. Jessep: *You're Goddamn right I did!*  

So can you handle truth? Are we clear on this?

CRYSTAL.

THE WALKING DEAD ARE BACK!

Just found out that Steve Jobs helped design/create one of my all time favorite old school PC games --- BREAKOUT.



Now I'm a fanboy.

the "other side" of the elyu sub cult

My friends and I have been going to the Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union beach for as long as I can remember. 

Last weekend, we did something different. We were invited by Tita Marie, aka Lola Nanny, aka Luke Landrigan's mom to stay at her soon to be opened place at another beach further down the road from the popular surf area. Her place was in the Montemar area where the German Sunset Beach and Final Option resorts where. 

Anyway, it was her "resort blessing" party and she invited people she liked to come over. Yes, we stayed for free, ate for free and got drunk for free. At the same time we were able to entertain Tita Marie and her partner John. 

Sunday, we went to the surfing main beach to waveride, eat and drink a little. Then as usual, we went home to Manila after the sun had set. Here are some pics from the weekend.
 

Oh yeah. I missed the 4th Annual Blue Eagle Bonfire. But it's ok. We lit up a few things in LU too.

Here are more pics from my LUMIX...
