Kapag Nakipag-HIWALAY Ka

#sarapmagsulat

Yung mga friends ko sa FB at mga naka-follow sakin sa Twitter, malamang alam na nila na more than a month na akong single. Hindi sila sanay at gusto nila magpa-kwento. Ako naman, hindi ako mahilig mag-kwento dahil (1) ayoko, (2) may blog ako at dito  mababasa ang lahat, at (3) isusulat ko rin siya sa libro. Malalaman rin ninyo ang kwento in time.

Palusot ko lang yun, ayaw ko lang talaga pag-usapan. Lahat ng klase ng paghihiwalay, masakit. Ako nga, nadapa ako 3 weeks ago at nasugatan. Nahiwalay yung balat ko. Masakit yun.

In the words of the Super Ex, “wala pa ring mas mas sasakit pa sa heartbreak“.

Paalala ko lang dun sa mga naghiwalay dyan, naghihiwalay, tsaka mga maghihiwalay. Kailangan i-consider ninyo ang mga ito:

Hindi Lang Siya Ang Hinihiwalayan Mo. Kasama na dito ang lahat ng mga kaibigan niya na loyal sa kanya. Sabihin na natin na mali, pero may magti-take sides pa rin. About 3 years ago, naramdaman ko to. Parang nakipaghiwalay ako sa isang buong barkada nun. Sampu na rin ng mga kamag-anak niya sa isang lugar sa Mindanao.

Kukunin Niya Ang Kanya. Hello, ineexpect mo ba na sa iyo na yang kotse na pinahiram niya sayo? Akala mo ba, may access ka pa rin sa mga country club na member siya? Tingin mo ba, tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang pag-supply niya ng load sayo? Akala mo ba, hindi niya kayang ipa-putol ang postpaid line mo?

Dadami Ang Oras Niya. Yung panahaon na ginugugol niya sayo na hindi mo naman nasusuklian, halos kalahati na ng araw niya yun. Ngayong wala na kayo, may apat na oras na siyang pwedeng mag (a) Zumba, (b) travel, (c) inom, o (d) makipagharutan kahit na kanino. Syempre yung letter D, dapat gawin niya after 3 months pa. Nevertheless, mas marami na siyang magagawa; at hindi ka na kasali dun.

Wag Kang Umasa Na May Babalikan Pa. Oo. Ang bawat ending ng sentence ay may period. Hindi ito comma na pwede mong i-build yung unang statement. Pag period, tapos na. Asa ka pa na may babalikan ka pa. Wag kang magpaka-feeling Angel Locsin.

FILA SUPPORTS THE ARTS

What happens when a young gay man falls in love with a woman? That’s the central conceit behind Red Turnip Theater’s second offering, COCK by Mike Bartlett. A sold-out hit when it first premiered in London in 2009 and subsequently during its off-Broadway run a year later, COCK revolves around a gay couple whose rocky relationship derails when one of them sleeps (and falls in love) with a woman. Debates over one’s sexual identity explode when all three decide to sit down and “duke it out” over dinner. Hilarity ensues when another unexpected guest turns up and loyalties are put to the test. As one character puts it, “It’s the ultimate bitch fight”.
The New York Times calls COCK “a terrific, tense little comedy” while The Huffington Post hails it as “a terrific contemporary play that puts much of other theatre to shame”. This critical darling is the perfect bookend to Red Turnip’s maiden season.

 

Fresh off the success of their critically-acclaimed CLOSER last October at Whitespace, Red Turnip promises another unique, in your face theatrical experience with COCK. The vision of five estab-lished actors (Ana Abad Santos, Topper Fabregas, Jenny Jamora, Cris Villonco and Rem Zamora), Red Turnip aims to engage theatergoers with the sort of material that seems to be in short supply in the country—the straight play.

 

Rem Zamora makes his directorial debut with COCK.“We’re excited to be back in Whitespace. A lot of people who came to CLOSER said they enjoyed the intimacy of the experience and the space. That was in Hall B. We’re going even more intimate this time in the smaller Hall A. COCK also plays in the round so it feels like you’re watching a fight in an arena—no frills: just words and pure conflict in the ring, and an intense involvement in the audience.”
Zamora has assembled a tight cast of theatrical heavyweights for COCK’s Manila premier: Topper Fabregas (Boeing Boeing, The Producers), Niccolo Manahan (Next Fall, Doubt), Jenny Jamora (Mind’s Eye, A Little Night Music), Audie Gemora (Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables) Fabregas is John, a young man caught between his gay lover and his growing attraction to an-other woman- W, played by Jamora.
Niccolo Manahan makes a theatrical comeback as M, John’s lover who isn’t about to let him go without a fight. “I feel ‘Cock’ will be a great experiment for me; an experiment in balancing my life with the things I enjoy doing, and an experiment in pushing my range. I don’t know where this ex-periment will lead but its an incredible opportunity that I’m thankful for.”
Rounding off this impressive cast is theatre stalwart Audie Gemora as F, M’s well-meaning father whose sudden appearance at dinner throws everyone for a loop. “The birth of a theater group is always exciting and eventful with fresh artistic vision and passion. I am thrilled to be part of Red Turnips 2nd offering, ‘Cock’. This is Rem Zamora’s directorial debut and my first time to be acting opposite brilliant young actors Niccolo Manahan and Jenny Jamora, while Topper Fabregas takes on his most complex character yet. Together we jump into a crackling cock fight of personalities, emotions and words.”
COCK is a comedy… with bite. No props, scenery or furniture. Just actors, sharp dialogue and some clever staging. All essential. Absolutely Red Turnip.
COCK is supported by FILA through the kindness of its President and owner Cris Albert. Supporting the arts has become one of her numerous advocacies, a true testament to her gener-ous spirit and her commitment to giving back to the community.
Direction by Rem Zamora, technical direction and lighting design by John Batalla, set design by Denis Lagdameo and sound design by Jethro Joaquin.
Cock will be staged at Whitespace — 2314 Chino Roces Ave. Extension (formerly Pasong Tamo Extension), Makati — on March 7, 14, 21, 28 and April 4 (Friday, 9 p.m.); March 8, 15, 29 and April 5 (Saturday, 8 p.m.); April 5, Saturday at 4 p.m.; March 9, 16, 23 and April 6 (Sunday, 4 p.m.) and special closing gala on April 6, Sunday, 8 p.m. Tickets are available through TicketWorld (891-9999 orwww.ticketworld.com.ph) Or Red Turnip Theater (redturniptheater@gmail.com orhttps://www.facebook.com/RedTurnipTheater)

Travel Factor Coordinator Ron Rabadon Will Climb Mt Pulag For The 50th TIME

#GoldenClimb
Mar 1-2, 2014
Travel Factor

Mount Pulag (or sometimes Mount Pulog) is the third highest mountain in the Philippines. It is Luzon’s highest peak at 2,922 meters above sea level. The borders between the provinces of Benguet, Ifugao, and Nueva Vizcaya meet at the mountain’s peak. (from Wikipedia)

Nakakatuwa lang na sa pang-50 na pagkakataon, aakyat ng Mt Pulag si Ron habang ako, never pa akong nakatuntong doon.

Nakakasama ko siya kapag may mga HQ Night, interview for new applicants, at training trips ang Travel Factor. Ambilis lang din ng panahon at pang singkwentang pag-akyat na pala niya ito.

Mabait si Ron. Maalagain sa mga kasama. Matalino at magaling makipagkapwa. Maayos siyang makitungo sa kapwa niya coordinators at sa mga participants. Magaling siya magluto at mag-prepare ng mga pagkain. Macho at malakas ang pangangatawan. Kaunti na lang, matatapatan na niya ang kagwapuhan ko. Kung gugustuhin niya, maaari siyang mapabilang sa mga Kampeon Ng Pag-ibig.

Kung susumahin, siya ang aming Master Pulag. Tinanghal siyang Coordinator of the Year ng Travel Factor noong 2012.

May girlfriend ata siya ngayon sa pagkakaalam ko.

Iniimbitahan niya tayona samahan siya sa kanyang Golden Climb to Mt Pulag sa March 1-2. Biyahen Victory yun. Marami pang slots. Hinding hindi kayo magsisisi kung siya ang magiging coordinator ninyo. Kung ako nga ay kukuha ng Mt. Pulag trip para mag-assist, gugustuhin ko na siya ang mag-lead. Iba ang ma-train ng isang Master Pulag.

Darating din ang araw, maaabot ko rin ang mga naabot mo. Kahit isang beses lang.

Olivia Said Yes Pero Korni Pa Rin

Korny, Korni, Corni, CORNY.

Well, ayos na rin. Napansin din naman. Viral siya nung una, at dahil sa “eh?” effect niya ngayon, pag-uusapan pa rin.

Pero come to think of it, this is a very innovative way of investing your money in condominiums. Ngayon lang ata ako nakakita ng payment plan na “weekly” instead of monthly sa condos.

Alam ko, ginagamit na ng Network Solutions, pioneer in domain name registration, ang 4-week billing cycle, pero sa condos? Unang una ito. Empire East is indeed a leader. Tumatak sakin.

Having said that, MAY KARAPATAN SILANG MAGING CORNY. Oo, meron. Para sa akin, pwede na. Lalabas siguro na mas mahal nga ang 2,141,14 every week kumpara sa 8k per month pero baka naman may gumusto ng ganyang billing cycle.

Kudos na rin sa Empire East. Their publicity worked. Magdadala na lang ako ng foods. Kapag may victory party sa ad na to, imbitahan po ninyo ako ha.

Kung ayaw ninyo ng kakornihan, eto na lang:
