A taste of Mocha on a Tuesday. A chance to Mocha on the flesh!

From her blog:
Hey O-peeps! It was my birthday last May 17 and I want to thank all of you - my friends on Facebook and Twitter for the birthday greetings. As my way of saying "thank you" for all your love and support, I've organized our first ever O-peeps grand EB(eyeball). This will be held on May 24 at Mugen Bar (Metrowalk). This will also be a double birthday show together with my girl Mae who's celebrating her birthday on May 27.



it's funny Saturday!

sharing my friend's entry at Thought Catalog. these cracked me up. so enjoy! :)

10 Lines Heard In Fits Of Public Rage 

It must be a by-product of dense city living, because I’ve never seen a person lose it in the suburbs. Whether it’s the stress of home and work demands, or a lack of personal space, it always amazes me how people can be so publicly on edge and ready to snap, even at seven in the morning. Here are the best lines I’ve heard over the years.
May. 19, 2011
  1. You gotta problem? Imma blow you up. I’m gonna blow you up like 9/11! – Raging woman in front of a post office counter. There is a reason the windows are bullet proof.
  2. Excuse me?! You want me to move? Suck my dick. Suck my dick till your mouth goes dry. – A man on a crowded train, in response to a woman’s request to pass. I didn’t know passing through had such a high price.
  3. You bothered by me talking on my phone? Listen, our president is a black man. My people rule now. – A woman responding to sneers about her loud phone conversation.
  4. Are you looking at me? I am a Native American Indian and I’m the only one who has a right to be here. – A black man on the train who thought I was looking at him.
  5. Listen, if you think this is ghetto, this ain’t ghetto yet. Imma get ghetto on you real quick if you push me. This is NOT GHETTO! - A woman getting antsy waiting in the Ikea returns line. I did not wait for her to get ghetto.
  6. Get the fuck off that seat! Who do you think you are laying there like that? I’ve got a job, I am gonna sit! – A man whacking a drunk man on the head with a newspaper because he was sleeping on an entire train row during rush hour. He got up.
  7. Do you not know what ‘plain’ means? Plain means nothing on it! This is unacceptable and this should never, ever, happen again! Do you hear me? No, that’s not enough. I want you to say ‘Yes, I understand.’ Say it! – A lady about her bagel at a coffee shop. I wouldn’t want that replacement bagel.
  8.  You sit there and do not fucking move. You are bothering this nice lady beside you. Do not fucking move or I will break your arms! – A woman yelling at her toddler son beside me. I did not fucking move.
  9. If your bag even gets close to touching my face, you’re going to eat it, shit it out and I’m going to make you eat it again. A seated man on the subway threatening the guy standing in front of him.
  10. Wash, wash, wash your vagina…wash, wash, wash… A man singing to his female companion on the train. I didn’t stick around to see the woman’s reaction, but I assume it was an instance of public rage.

my favorites are #8 and #9. i've never been to new york (but will someday), but i always have this impression that most people there are mean? brutally, devoid of emotion frank. except of course for Sex and the City's Charlotte York. hehe. a friend even shared me her one time experience in ny where she greeted a stranger good morning and got yelled at with it's none of your fucking business! whoa! oh-kaay, i guess i will next time keep good morning to myself. hehehe. but if am feeling new yorkish, i might shove my well meaning good morning up to the deep end of their  sorry fucking asses. haha.


creative ways to tell you're gay

a friend emailed me some of the entries in yesterday's Chico & Delamar's The Morning Rush (TMR) Top Ten "creative ways to tell someone you're gay". Here are a few she remembered. These made my day. Thanks! :)

Male friends talking
M1: siraulo si Tonyo dun sa kanto, tinawag akong tsismosong bakla 
M2: sinagot ko nga, hoy hindi ako tsismoso!

son umuwing bugbog sarado sa bahay na nakita ng tatay
T: o baket may mga pasa ka?
S: nag suntukan kasi kami ni Jong
T: gusto mo resbakan ko?
S: wag na 'Tay, break na kami

'pag may nakita kang kakilala.. kilala kita ah, oo kilala kita meron akong homographic memory e

4.) honey i'm home--- mosexual !
5.) honey i'm back--la !
6.) i'm so bad--ing !
7.) i'm so gu- tomboy !

P1: mama, baclaran lang
P2: mama, bacla-rin po

Exclusive Party - May 21

so a man recently announced that based on his mathematical computation from the bible, the world will end on May 21. and what a great way to end it - with a rapture party! hehe. literally, dance like there's no tomorrow!

a friend said that he'd rather we all die the same time than be the one to go first or be the one left. kasi wala pa kaming pang-airfare papuntang china! syet! kaya damay damay na lang! hehehe

siguro naman taga-earth ka at napanood mo ang 2012 no? =)

will you?

madami na ang nagsabi ng i love you at nangako ng forever at always (exag! hehehe. may mangilan-ngilan lang) pero kung bibilangin ang totoong naiwan, naghintay, nyeta, isa lang yata! kaya hindi na ko masyado naniniwala dyan. words are super cheap. actions are the true deal. totoo naman, hindi naman siguro sila tanga para maghintay ng matagal sa walang kasiguruhan, pero wag ka na lang din magbitaw ng mga salitang  hindi mo naman kayang pangatawanan. kasi like charles dickens, i come with great expectations. dahil dyan, kanta na lang tayo….

I will (Beatles)

Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will.

For if I ever saw you
I didn't catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same.

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart.

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know, I will
I will.


for some reason i know i can wait. am romantic that way. yeah, foolish that way. pero dahil mapait kumain ng binawing salita, kaya i won't promise until am definite. sigurista much. hahaha. 

Quote in the moment

It's easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time but opening up your soul to someone - letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams; that is being NAKED.



I have a sister living in US. A sister recently left for Singapore to try her luck there (this is my bum sister). My other sister who lives out of town will in one to two years leave for Italy to join her husband (i gotta have visa from there). Another sister (andami no? Big family :)) lives near our house (A tenant of my parents in their dilapidated apartments for rent). Then for the last straw, another sister (my other bum sis. Yep, i got two) announced holy week that she's getting married next year. Holy crap! Suddenly, my used to be big family is shrinking by the minute. Is it not enough that all my closest friends are now overseas?!

My sister in US will visit us next year. So my earliest (hopefully not the last) chance of a complete family will be next year. It's unspeakably sad. I know I've been lambasting my family in my posts, at pinagtatabuyan kong magtrabaho and 2 sisters kong batugan. But then when they finally left/leave,  when I finally got my fervent hope granted, I felt nothing but sadness and endless worry. Blood is not just thicker than water. Blood is unconditional love ingrained in the genes. I know this because even my good for nothing dad, sa kaila-ilaliman ng napakalalim  na galit ko sa kanya, gulp, mahal ko sya. *thunderclaps!*

Omg! I just realized ako na lang pala matitira with my parents! Major, major syeeet!!!  Sana sa mabilis na balang araw, ako naman ang makaalis at makalayo. Mahal ko magulang ko pero ayoko maiwan sa bahay! Maloloka ako! hehehe.

Sometimes, like plants, you need space to grow. O ha, may justification ako. Hehehe.


privates going public

have you seen Vagina Monologues? i did, years ago. i missed though the tagalog version, Usapang Puki. sob. still, the Vagina Monologue experience was truly liberating. you'll be shocked, you'll cry, laugh your velvet out, smile, get angry. all sorts of feelings for a used to be hush hush topic. imagine, a whole stage play entirely dedicated to pekpek?! amazing! genius!

i think oprah still hasn't fully embraced the lesson yet, for whatever stride in feminism achieved by Vagina Monologues, she fanned out the moment she popularized the term "vajayjay". it's like being a closet gay. cloaking the truth, hiding what's real. and we know how hard that can be. so since she can't say vagina in public (to think she has global influence), she came up with the tamer, girly, general patronage version, vajayjay. bummer. but this is just me. i feel she could have largely helped (not only because she's really huge. hehe) advance the cause. but then, am just being oa as always. haha.

in the philippines, we call it puki, pekpek, keps, kipay, monay(?), pechay(?). that's all i know. any other term? we even call uber short shorts as pekpek shorts these days. hehe. am glad. we can now freely say our privates publicly, often with friends.

"happy pekpek" - to describe a friend or someone who just had sex (whether with self or with a partner)

"puki mo!", "pekpek ka!" - can be expressions in jest or if pissed

"kamusta naman ang kipay?" - when asking a friend of her sex life

"nag-skirt ako kasi naiinitan keps ko". it's now common to infuse our privates in daily conversations. so while same sex marriage is still taboo in the dark ages that is catholic philippines, we have in our own way assimilated the pop culture thru mainstream tv (i heart you pare, coffee prince, aiza seguerra, pow chavez, etc), gay/lez lingo, clothing, parties, exclusive schools, call centers ( i seriously think call centers are instrumental in making gays/lez public), gyms, sports, coffee shops. am a happy pekpek because of that. tee-hee!

below are two of my favorite portions of Vagina Monologues. i hope they revive this in manila, specially the tagalog version, with celebrities like regine velasquez, marian rivera, bea alonzo, cristine reyes doing the monologues. now that would be really delish! yuum! :)

The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could
describes key memories of a woman related to her vagina. through all her vaginal struggles, she ultimately experienced happiness with a woman.

The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy
this is about a woman sex worker who services women only. hmm, an enticing possible alternate career. of course will need a lot of practice. this is the most hilarious part really of Vagina Monologues.


going to gosengfiao

nakakasawa nang maging corporate citizen, kaya magpaka-cultural muna tayo. hehe.
bago pa ang survivor, meron munang temptation island in the 80s. a stage version (cats were gays) was already done for this last year yata, now a remake of the movie is underway. pato na patok ang kabaklaan/bitchy lines ng movie nya. kaya ating kilalanin si joey gosengfiao. i plan to watch this. =)

Gosiengfiao revival at CCP

First Posted 19:14:00 05/10/2011
FINE examples of 1970s and 1980s camp are enjoying a revival. Apart from the “Temptation Island” remake opening next month and the “Bomba Star” rerun at the Paris Cinema fest in July, another Joey Gosiengfiao film will be revisited—this one by the Society of Filipino Archivists for Film. Once believed “lost,” Gosiengfiao’s 1976 drama, “Babae Ngayon at Kailanman,” will be shown at the Manuel Conde Dream Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines on May 14, 2 p.m. Some of the film’s stars, including Gloria Diaz and Vivian Velez, are expected at the screening.

transgender 101 for me

honestly, ngayon ko lang naintindihan ang difference ng transgender and lesbian after reading this piece. kaya pala ang isang friend ko, whom i labelled as lesbian said, "ayokong pumatol sa lesbian. pakiramdam ko bading ako pag ginawa ko yun. gusto ko straight lang." magkahalong tumbling at somersault ang reaction ko when she said this to me. in my gender uneducated mind, i thought she's crazy and a masochist, for i was sure she's into a lifetime of misery because of that choice. now, crazy, ignorant me knows better. =) peace tayo pare! *hugs*

on the rumor that she's preggy.
she said she's just having migraine.
weeks later, she announced, she's preggy.
omg! nakakapreggy pala ang migraine!

vice grip

Just when I was itching to try this one. Sigh. Life has been such a pressure cooker lately that am seriously considering vices - drugs, alcohol, smoking, sex (err, that's not really a vice right?!). I am in serious shit. Look at me, am now properly using upper and lower cases. waaaah!!! noooo!!!!!
