this sunday came on the heels of a series of parties and long evenings. on thursday, i met with guada who’s about to leave for bangkok. then moved to makati for iton’s despedida. gave an impromptu testimonial. he’ll be based in singapore for the next two years. too many departures. that party ended in old swiss inn where we lasted till close to 5am. but it was not a problem because friday was a holiday for me.
after lunch, i call up malvin to greet him a happy birthday. he asks me to round up some B2K5 folks to pop by his bash in malate. i’ll try, i said. people had other plans, and so did i. nevertheless, i showed up, belted my usual song at the new karaoke place called snyder along orosa, and downed 3 sanmig strong ice. would’ve left earlier, but people don’t usually show up until 3 hours after the appointed hour. zoomed to the next party in cubao. and this was when the fun started. too many revelations that night, and it was just great to hang out with fun, interesting, game, and rowdy batchmates in AMCI. moss dropped by and poisoned us with his concoction called leche. loved it! instantly becomes official B2K5 drink. i had more strong ice. stoned, i accepted dares, interviewed and disrobed people, including myself. and got home almost 6am. i wake up with a cleaving headache. popped 2 alaxan FRs and a biogesic. walked around the house feeling woozy. left for badminton at west drive with my fingers still trembling. didn’t plan to play but had at least 4 games. people observed i was getting better at the sport. ha! playing again tomorrow. thinking about getting my own racket.
after the game, went to next door/tiananmen in ortigas home depot, the schizophrenic resto. menu, music, mood, prices and server costumes change after 9pm. brilliant!
had another fruitless trip to isabela on tuesday, and got back to manila very early wednesday morning after back-to-back 10 hour bus trips. coaxed bert into giving extra merits for people who’d be doing extra rounds. worked! people took the bait. looking forward to sleeping till lunch. ahh! the humanity!
