Shirts Don't Lie

overcast

The other day, I had dinner and a movie with Anton.

You remember Anton, right?

No, it wasn't a date. It was just two guys hanging out.

Pakibaba po ang mga kilay niyo.

Anyway, we were taking pictures using his iPhone and uploading them onto my Facebook wall.

Live-streaming ang drama.

Natuwa ako tuloy sa iPhone.

Gusto ko na ng iPhone4.

"Magkano yung iPhone4?" tanong ko kay Anton.

"About P60thousand plus," sagot niya.

Kelangan ko ibenta ang isang kidney ko para makabili ng iPhone. Baka kulangin pa ako.

Look at the iPhone pics I uploaded.

Actually, hindi ito yung kuha ko ng iPhone.

Baka kasi patayin ako ni Anton pag nilagay ko yung picture na I took dahil according sa kaniya, he has "Jollibee cheeks" daw dun.

Anyway, dumaan si Lance sa cafe na tinatambayan namin.

Isn't he the cutest?

That's when I noticed the shirt Lance was wearing.

Aylavet!

It turns out, galing ito sa Shirts Don't Lie, a Facebook business being run by Top Ten number 2 Gio's close friend, Glen Dale.

I love their shirts, so cute. And so mura. If you want to see more, just search in FB "Shirts Don't Lie".

They also have religious-themed shirts:

Some artsy ones:

And my personal faves:

I think I'll give Trainer Marlon one of these "Top" shirts.

This one I'll give to Pasha.

And this one, well... dun sa ka-teammate ko na ayaw pang mag-out.

UPDATE: GUYS, YOU CAN GO CHECKOUT THEIR PROFILE ON FACEBOOK. JUST SEARCH FOR "SHIRTS DON'T LIE".

WALA SA AKIN ANG MGA SHIRTS. WALA SA AKIN. HAHAHAHA!

A Confused Virgin...

overcast

8101.jpg

Hi Bookie,

I wanted to ask you something hence this e-mail.
I am a 25 year-old male virgin. I am still a virgin not because I'm ugly. It's more of self-control. I believe my looks is passable enough. You see, it's not only my mother who tells me I'm good-looking. I used to join those search/pageant thing in college. They say I resemble Luis Alandy ( I hope you know him). So that makes me the provincial version of Luis Alandy.
I'm from a mountainous province in Visayas but I now work in Makati as accountant. I find my job boring and unglamorous.
This is my dilemma: I'm not really sure if I'm gay or not. Somehow, I don't believe in being bisexual. There are 3 boys in the family; I am the youngest. My older brothers are certified Casanovas. I am the chaste one. I became aware of my homosexual tendency when I was in high school. In the province, we usually go swimming with the barkada in a nearby river. The barkada was usually all boys and I used to join one. During summer, we swam from 9am to 3pm almost every day. We swam without our clothes on - naked that is. Funny thing was, I felt interested in checking out other boys' package - and it was not only for the sake of comparison. I was both confused and ashamed. Confused because I used to watch Rosanna Roces movies and I got sexual fantasies with Osang. Ashamed because I am not comfortable getting attracted to the same sex. I started avoiding those swimming sessions.
The whole thing got worse in college. I attended college far from home so I had to stay in a boarding house. My roommates were all boys. Even in the province, it could really get so hot in the evening when summer was approaching. So we usually slept naked and I get really uncomfortable with it. In the morning, when we rushed for our morning classes, guys would shower together to save time. I did too. Several times, I chose to be late in class.
In college, I got attracted to both girls and guys. I would fantasize about doing it with a certain girl, the next day I would fantasize imagining things with a certain guy and feel so dirty about myself.
I am not being assuming but there were girls who run after me (not the beauty queen types though). I dont know if it was just me but I sensed that I had quite an effect on the same sex too. Gays would hit on me. Worse than that, guys who I believe were straight were flirting with me. I was not born yesterday so I know the difference between flirting and just being over-friendly. Some messages were subtle, some straightforward. I could take it when gays would hit on me (gay professors pinching my butt, getting harassed at the salon by gay beauticians). What I could not take was when straight guys hit on me. It always resulted on one thing: self-loathing. I just hate
myself for getting attracted to the same sex. Bookie, I'm a friendly person but I avoid making frinds with good-looking guys. Just to avoid possible temptation. I try not making friends with gay people too because I see myself on them. I used to work in a BPO company and my gay colleagues would just grab my crotch any time they get an opportunity. I just let them, I did not want to be tagged as KJ or OA.
Bookie, do you think I am gay? And is it really possible that I attract straight guys? Do you think I'm a closet freak?

Love,
Confused 25 year-old virgin

P.S: I am a big fan of yours, Bookie, but I wont ever admit it to anyone. You know why.

Dear Readers,

I know super-uber-mega-delayed reaction na itong guest blogger entry ko pero better late than never, right?

I received this email from a reader several months ago, and I honestly didn't trust myself enough to respond to it.

Feeling ko kasi, baka maging super-biased ako and not be truthful in my response.

So I thought, why not get someone to respond to this whom I know will be, ehem, brutally honest.

Plus, I wanted my first ever guest blogger to be someone who has truly inspired me, blog-wise.

Ever since mabasa ko ang isang entry niya, I was hooked. I can only dream of my blog being as funny as his.

Pangarap ko rin na pumunta ng Davao para lang makasama siya, and his colorful friends, sa isang inuman.

So, first the email.

Next, ladies and gentlemen, I am honored and privileged to introduce you to my first guest blogger...

...Ms. Mandaya Moore.

P.S.

His responses are in parentheses, in upper-case, and in bold. I can only wish someone back then, during my days as a closet queen, had knocked some sense into me like he did in this letter.

Hi Bookie,

I wanted to ask you something hence this e-mail.
I am a 25 year-old male virgin. I am still a virgin not because I'm ugly. (KAHIT PANGIT MAY KARAPATANG MA-DEVIRGINIZE, MASAKTAN AT DUGUIN) It's more of self-control. (ARE YOU LAURA BRANIGAN?) I believe my looks is passable enough. You see, it's not only my mother who tells me I'm good-looking. I used to join those search/pageant thing in college. (ANONG KLASENG SEARCH ITO? FOR MALE? FOR FEMALE?) They say I resemble Luis Alandy ( I hope you know him). So that makes me the provincial version of Luis Alandy. (MEDYO TYPE KO SI LUIS ALANDY. DI KO MA-VISUALIZE ANG PROVINCIAL VERSION NYA? ITO NA YUNG MAY DALANG BAYONG, MANOK AT MAY HATAK-HATAK NA KALABAW?)
I'm from a mountainous province in Visayas but I now work in Makati as accountant. I find my job boring and unglamorous. (OK LANG ANG MA-BORE, BUT THERE’S NO EXCUSE TO BEING UNGLAMOROUS. GO SHOPPING DEAR.)

This is my dilemma: I'm not really sure if I'm gay or not. Somehow, I don't believe in being bisexual. There are 3 boys in the family; I am the youngest. My older brothers are certified Casanovas. I am the chaste one. I became aware of my homosexual tendency when I was in high school. In the province, we usually go swimming with the barkada in a nearby river. The barkada was usually all boys and I used to join one. During summer, we swam from 9am to 3pm almost every day. We swam without our clothes on - naked that is. Funny thing was, I felt interested in checking out other boys' package - and it was not only for the sake of comparison. I was both confused and ashamed. Confused because I used to watch Rosanna Roces movies and I got sexual fantasies with Osang. Ashamed because I am not comfortable getting attracted to the same sex. I started avoiding those swimming sessions. (MALINIS BA ANG ILOG? BAKA ITO ANG DAHILAN SA CONFUSION MO. KASI NAMAN, WHILE CHECKING YOUR BARKADA’S NAKANGANGA KA, BAKA NAPARAMI ANG NAIMOM MONG TUBIG, THUS THE CONFUSION AND SHAME. ROSANNA ROCES? SA ANONG FILM NYA? DAHIL SA KAARTEHAN MO, DI KA NA TULOY MARUNONG LUMANGOY)

The whole thing got worse in college. I attended college far from home so I had to stay in a boarding house. My roommates were all boys. Even in the province, it could really get so hot in the evening when summer was approaching. So we usually slept naked and I get really uncomfortable with it. In the morning, when we rushed for our morning classes, guys would shower together to save time. I did too. Several times, I chose to be late in class. (WALA BANG ELECTRIC FAN SA BOARDING HOUSE NYO? NOONG COLLEGE AKO, SA YMCA DORMITORY—SA LIKOD NG MANILA CITY HALL --AKO TUMIRA. COMMUNAL ANG SHOWERS DON. NEVER AKONG NA-LATE SA KLASE. AT, DI LANG KAMI HUBAD KUNG MATULOG, MINSAN MAY ORGY DIN KAMI)

In college, I got attracted to both girls and guys. I would fantasize about doing it with a certain girl, the next day I would fantasize imagining things with a certain guy and feel so dirty about myself. (GANITO KASI, WHEN YOU IMAGINE DOING IT WITH EITHER A GIRL OR A BOY, WAG KANG GUGULONG-GULONG SA PUTIK)

I am not being assuming but there were girls who run after me (not the beauty queen types though). I dont know if it was just me but I sensed that I had quite an effect on the same sex too. Gays would hit on me. Worse than that, guys who I believe were straight were flirting with me. I was not born yesterday so I know the difference between flirting and just being over-friendly.

What I could not take was when straight guys hit on me. It always resulted on one thing: self-loathing. I just hate
myself for getting attracted to the same sex. (PAKI-CHECK NGA, BAKA NAMAN DI KA KAMUKHA NI LUIS ALANDY. BAKA NAMAN MUKHA KANG K_K_ SA ISANG SIDE AT T_T_ SA KABILA)

Bookie, I'm a friendly person but I avoid making friends with good-looking guys. Just to avoid possible temptation. (DI LANG GOOD-LOOKING GUYS ANG MASARAP, PATI MGA DI KAGANDAHAN. IN FACT, YUNG MGA MAHIHIRAP AT DI NAGTE-TAKE NG VITAMINS, MAS MALALAKI SILA).

I try not making friends with gay people too because I see myself on them. I used to work in a BPO company and my gay colleagues would just grab my crotch any time they get an opportunity. I just let them, I did not want to be tagged as KJ or OA. (HINDI KA NGA KJ O OA, EASY-TO-GET KA NAMAN. KONTING PAPRESYO NAMAN. AYAW NI LUIS ALANDY NG GANYAN)

Bookie, do you think I am gay? And is it really possible that I attract straight guys? Do you think I'm a closet freak? (YOU ARE GAY. IF STRAIGHT GUYS ARE ATTRACTED TO YOU, THEY ARE NOT AT ALL STRAIGHT. I DO NOT THINK YOU ARE A CLOSET FREAK. YOU ARE A FREAK OUT OF THE CLOSET. MAY CARNABAL SA AMIN—MALAPIT NA KASI ANG FIESTA – APPLY KA)

Love,
Confused 25 year-old virgin

P.S: I am a big fan of yours, Bookie, but I wont ever admit it to anyone. You know why.

(P.S. MAG-INGAT KAY BOOKIE, MANIAC SYA, AND HE WON’T EVER ADMIT IT TO ANYONE. YOU KNOW WHY)

Pasha's Tuhog!

sunny

663.jpg

Sinubo ko ng buong-buo ang isang piraso ng barbecue chicken pwet na in-order ko.

Nakatingin sa akin si Pasha, an amused look on his face, "Wow, you really like butts, no?"

Hindi ako sumagot, ninanamnam ko ang sarap at linamnam ng chicken pwet sa loob ng bibig ko.

Natawa si Pasha, "Anyways, I forgot to tell you kanina, I was in a threesome last night."

Muntik na akong mabilaukan.

"Threesome?"

Tumango siya, habang kumuha siya ng tissue at pinahid ang mantikang nakapalibot sa nguso ko.

Inilayo ko ang mukha ko, "Sandali, pang-ilang threesome mo na ito for this year?"

He shrugged, "Malay ko. But this one was definitely weird."

Tumaas ang isang kilay ko, "Bakit? This time mga babae naman ang ka-threesome mo?"

"Eww, of course not!" sagot niya.

He continued, "Ganito kasi, I received a text from this guy whom I did a couple of months ago. He was quite the performer so I decided na I wouldn't mind hooking up with him again."

"May itsura?" tanong ko.

"Kamukha ni Cogie Domingo nung panahong may career pa siya," Pasha described.

"Hot!" sagot ko.

"I know," he laughed, "So I go to his place, and lo and behold, there's another guy with him in his apartment, naked."

"Sino yun?" I asked, breathless, "Anung itsura?"

"Hot din, kamukha ni Onemig Bondoc, nung panahong sikat pa siya," sagot ni Pasha.

"Hot!" sagot ko, "Pero sino yung guy?"

"At first, of course, I had no idea, I'd never met the second guy before," Pasha continued, "But you know me, fight kung fight! I took off my clothes and dove in."

"Aaaand?" I asked.

"I noticed something odd while we were doing it, both of them would play with me, but not with each other," he said, "One guy would kiss me, while the other kissed something else on me, pero they wouldn't kiss each other. They wouldn't even touch."

"Aaaand?" I asked.

"So I told Max, that's the guy whom I already knew, Max, why don't go kiss him?" he said.

"Aaaand?" I asked.

"Sabi ni Max, Umm, no dude, we're cousins," Pasha answered.

"EEEW," ang tili ko.

"I know! It was sooo weird!" Pasha said.

"Hindi siya weird! Nakakadiri sya noh? So umalis ka na nung malaman mo?" tanong ko sa kaniya.

"Huh? Why would I leave? They were both hot, so I did them both," Pasha answered matter-of-factly.

I stared at him, flabbergasted, "Ikaw na ang recipient ng aking Di-Ko-Kinaya Award for the month of August."

"What?? They were hot! What did you expect me to do?" Pasha was laughing.

"OMG naman, they were cousins, I mean, I'm not trying to be pa-innocent or anything pero isn't there a line we shouldn't cross when it comes to kinkiness?" I asked.

"Bookie, sweetie, it was just sex, ok? It's not like I'm jumping into a relationship," Pasha explained, "I just jumped into their bed!"

I shuddered, "Ewan ko, basta it seems wrong to me."

Pasha leaned over and whispered seductively at me, "Don't worry, next time i-invite nila ako, isama kita. You can watch us do it so you get to realize that it's not to be taken seriously. It was just S-E-X."

I blushed.

He winked, "So, do you wanna see me in action?"

I couldn't stop blushing. So I did the only thing I could do.

I ordered another stick of chicken pwet.

Nagutom ako uli for some reason.

The Big Three!

overcast

Three years of blogging have led to this moment.

Happy 3rd anniversary sa blog ko!!!!

Wooohooo! Akalain niyong tatlong taon na akong nagsusulat tungkol sa katabaan ko't kabaklaan??!!!

First off, thank you to my closest friends, kasi tinotolerate nila lagi ang kadramahan ko sa buhay.

Thank you to Pasha, Schoolboi, and Ina Magenta for not going berserk upon finding out that I've been blogging about them for the better part of two years. And Schoolboi? Pa-kiss naman. Keri lang daw kay Pasha.

A special thanks goes to Baker Clang, Chef Ed, and Trainer Marlon for always always watching my back. Friends are the family you choose, di ba?

And, of course, Constant Reader, I hope you guys know that you are my true lover. Kayo na laging nagtiyatiyagang basahin ang blog ko.

Kayo na laging nagsesend sa akin ng words of encouragement.

Kayo na lalong nagpapalala sa diabetes ko everytime pinapadalhan niyo ako ng pasalubong na matatamis.

This is all for you.

And if I do say so myself, these three are possibly some of the hottest I've ever had in the short history of my top ten lists.

Without further ado, and dahil alam kong bihira rin naman niyong basahin ang portion na ito at didiretso din kayo sa pics sa baba, I give you...

The Big Three!!!

giuseppe-cover.jpg

*Giuseppe*

I was only able to add Giuseppe to the list last week. And thank God I made it in time.

giu1.jpg

He used to work for Peoplesupport, but he moved to JPMorgan Chase Bank as a Telephone Banker.

giu2.jpg

Even as a kid, he was already a cutie.

He graduated Communication Arts in Bicol University.

giu3.jpg

His hobbies include swimming and singing.

giu4.jpg

He says he is easy to hang out with and always always loves to cook.

giu5.jpg

If I might add something else, at the risk of embarrassing myself once Giuseppe reads this, well, anyways, this guy is so cute, I remember once when a friend and I spotted Giuseppe and a couple of his friends roaming the mall, we were so enamored by his looks that we spent almost half the day following him around, surreptitiously, without his knowing (I hope). Like I said, I like 'em tisoy.

giu6.jpg

gio-cover.jpg

*Gio*

Long-time readers of my blog will recognize Gio as I've featured him before. In fact, ni-recycle ko na ibang pics niya dito.

5gio1.jpg

Medyo matagal ko nang kilala si Gio. But it was only recently that we've gotten to really talk to each other.

He has an adorable coming-out-of-the-closet story.

2gio2.jpg

You see, he had a six-year relationship before with this guy whom he introduced to his parents as his "bestfriend".

Being the "bestfriends" that they are, the guy would almost always sleepover at Gio's family's house.

9gio3.jpg

Eventually, his family got tired of the reason "bestfriend sleeping over".

"I ran out of projects and papers, trying to come up with a reason why my bestfriend/boyfriend would be sleeping over," Gio told me.

"Pero nasabi ko na lang sa kanila outright nung wala na kami," dagdag niya, "My mom was asking nasaan na si Lio? Bakit di na siya umuuwi dito?"

Gio answered without blinking an eye, "Break na kami."

His mom smirked and said, "Sayang, gusto ko pa naman siya."

gio7.jpg

"I laughed so hard when she said that," Gio recounted.

"When I told my brother about me being gay," he continued, "And this was after just having had a big argument with him, and my bro was still crying and all..."

"Alam mo ba, bakla ako?" Gio asked his brother.

His brother responded straight out, "Okay lang, uso naman yan eh."

"Kinutusan ko talaga siya noon," Gio laughed.

0gio4.jpg

Dear readers, can I just say how much I admire Gio for agreeing to share this story with me and you people on this blog?

Not a lot of guys would bare their sexuality like that in such a public forum. When I was talking to him, he displayed a maturity that was surprising for someone at the fresh age of 25.

4gio5.jpg

According to his BFF, Lance, who is number 10 in this year's list, "First time I met Gio, may pagka-loner siya. He can live on his own. Lately lang naging outgoing yan. And when he commits to a relationship, he's always super-into his partner. BTW, he always brings his special someone to Baguio."

You are officially one of my favorite people, Gio.

errin-cover.jpg

*Errin*

I have to say it, Errin beats out all the previous number one candidates in past top ten lists.

I mean, look at the guy.

errin1.jpg

He just turned 20 last July. He is also not sure about his height, but puts himself at around 6'1" to 6'3".

He is a tourism grad from USTe.

Being half-Kuwaiti has definitely given him a winning ticket to the gene lottery.

errin2.jpg

He is a Peoplesupport employee and is currently situated sa Jaka building (Account transfer, anyone?) BTW, this is his first job, as he just recently graduated last March.

errin3.jpg

errin4.jpg

His future plans involve becoming a Flight Attendant.

Surprisingly enough, Errin mentioned to me that he is pretty insecure about his looks and doesn't find himself attractive. Although, he does like his nose.

I LOVE his nose.

errin9.jpg

I would kill for a nose like that.

errin7.jpg

I asked him what was the best lie he ever told anyone.

errin5.jpg

"The best lie?! Hmm, making kupit from tuition fees, and made up fake registration forms c/o Recto! LOL. Big-spender eh!"

Don't you just love the fact that he can be mischievous when he wants to? :)

errin8.jpg

He is currently in a relationship and says that he doesn't have any specific traits that he looks for in a partner, as long as they click together, then he is instantly attracted.

errin6.jpg

"And, of course, if my friends approve," he jokes.

I asked him, "If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be?"

He candidly answered, "I'd go for Megan Fox or Paris Hilton. They are effin' HOT! Or maybe Angie or Aniston, Bullock maybe? Oh Jessica Stam, YEAH!"

When I told him that he is this year's number one Call Center Man, he had this to say:

"I am?! Wow! Such an honor! Wow! Am speechless. Ha! Thank You! I guess am not that hot to be number one. Ha! Thank you again! Ha! Am shy now..."

My dear, dear, dear Errin, if I looked half as delicious as you do, I'd have no reason to be shy at all...

errin10.jpg
errin11.jpg

That's all folks!!!
