I hate multiply.

When Multiply publicly announced that they would be closing down their site soon, I used to don’t give a damn. I didn’t even try harder when the download to save my photos in their website did not work out. Then it suddenly dawned on me, I had some really nice posts in that website, beautiful photos and most especially, important online friends. Now all I have are memories. After ten years of being together with my (almost) undivided loyalty, it all had come to this. It was just…over. How could you! I even paid for that website. I gave up some of my thesis hours for you! All that crap of a quote “it is never a mistake, always a lesson,” be damn! I didn’t learn a lesson from that stupid move except don’t trust a social networking site again. :”(

Okay. Time to move on.

Next please.

A dangerous place to live.

Rest my little angels.

Rest my little angels.

As I was growing up, the American dream had consumed the mindset of almost every single person in my hometown. Everyone just wanted to have that bright and golden opportunity to enter the United States. If they have to sell everything they got over here, they would do it if that was what it would take. The plane ride ticket to “America” seemed to be the end of the means. On the contrary, I have never dreamed of having to do anything in the US territory, except when it involves shopping and sightseeing.

Today’s Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre validated my disinterest even more. What happened today will forever be a nightmare to all mothers. I have a five-year old little boy of my own and my heart is bleeding from the inside. I am deeply sorry to say this, but the US is just so full of nutcases. The scary part is that they walk and fulfill their daily routine just like totally sane people. I have done several trips to the US and I have seen this with my own eyes. But all you need really is to watch the US television shows to know what I am talking about. Ever heard of “16 and Pregnant” and “Jon and Kate plus 8”, yes? A country full of these plus a lax gun law makes the perfect cocktail for random mass killings. I live in Mindanao, which is probably the least safe part of the Philippines. Schools, malls and public transportation get bombed from time to time. Rich families get kidnapped for ransom especially when it is almost election season. But when anything like that does happen, at least I know why.

May the 18 innocent souls rest in peace today and live in our hearts forever.

Praying for a stricter gun law in the US.

Cybersex…It’s more fun in the Philippines.

I am no longer the passionate political person that I was six years ago. When I read about the Arab political revolution in the paper last year–did not stop me from enjoying my Mocha Caramel frappuccino. I really love my Starbucks frappuccino, you know. When I saw the mass riots in Spain yesterday–it did not budge me from my game in my iPad at all. I am trying so hard to beat my husband at Tiny Wings. Grrr.

When I saw the trending censored status updates in Facebook as a peaceful protest against the approval of the R. A. 10175, I thought to myself that it cannot be so bad. Most of the people who reacted violently with the bill know no better anyway. If I will post on Facebook that the Philippine Military stands a chance against the intimidating giant that is China, for sure they will buy it and eat it like that Magnum ice cream craze.

Since I do not want to be among the 80 percent users in Facebook who do that exactly, I paid a little visit to my old friend,Google, for some accurate advice. Whoever you are, especially if you are a friend of mine, you won’t like what I found out.

[ Republic Act No. 10175 ]

AN ACT DEFINING CYBERCRIME, PROVIDING FOR THE PREVENTION, INVESTIGATION, SUPPRESSION AND THE IMPOSITION OF PENALTIES THEREFOR AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES

SEC. 4. Cybercrime Offenses. — The following acts constitute the offense of cybercrime punishable under this Act:

Lalalalalla…fast forward to Section 4(c)(1)….

(1) Cybersex. — The willful engagement, maintenance, control, or operation, directly or indirectly, of any lascivious exhibition of sexual organs or sexual activity, with the aid of a computer system, for favor or consideration.

Ahhh…Alright. If I do it for free then it is okay. Husband, you have to stop paying me for my lascivious services. LOL. Just kidding. 🙂

To my lovely ladies and dearest gents, drinks on me if you are guilty.
