Tops Versus Bottoms...

Inuman sa Malate, Thursday night, 4am:

Mainit, maingay, masikip. Malate.

Apat na bakla na nakapalibot sa isang maliit na lamesa. Dalawang bucket ng Strong Ice. Isang maliit na basket ng popcorn.

Tumutugtog ang "California Girls" remix ni Katy Perry mula sa speakers.

Amoy yosi at beer ang paligid.

"Ganun na lang ba lagi? Everytime gusto nating mga bakla magkita-kita para mag-catch-up sa mga kanya-kanyang drama sa buhay, sa Malate ang bagsak natin all the time?" ang pasigaw na tanong ni Daphne, ang friend kong badet na supervisor, habang nagmumuwestra sa mga nagkalat na mga kapwa namin badets na halo-halo ang edad, social standing, at sexual preferences.

Nag-sindi ng yosi si Cecile, isang bruskong 29-year old Sales agent na mahilig sa mga bagets at gym, "Eh san mo gustong tumambay at magpakabangenge? Sa garahe ng bahay niyo? Eh di ba banned forever na ang mga pagmumukha natin dun dahil ayaw ng mudraks mo na makita ang kabadingan mo?"

"I don't know about you guys, pero I think Malate started going downhill years ago," puna naman ni Sophia, anak ng mga mayayamang debotong Born Again christians, "Why couldn't we have just met in Serendra? It's so much cleaner than this place."

Tumawa si Cecile, "Nyeh nyeh nyeh, oy Sophia, tigil-tigilan mo yang EOP drama mo ha, ipagpahinga mo naman ang salitang pax, please lang. Walang masama sa Malate. Ito ang pambansang tambayan ng mga beki."

I teased Cecile, "Who died and made you the PR manager of Malate? Eh dati di ba ayaw mo rin sa lugar na to?"

"Dati yun! Bago ko nakilala si..." sagot ni Cecile, di maituloy ang pangalan.

"Sino? Si Papa Coco mo?" tanong ko, natatawa kasi namumula na si Cecile.

"Banggitin ba? Banggitin ba ang pangalan niya???" ang sabi ni Cecile, binabato ako ng popcorn.

"Why? Aren't you over that pubescent man-boy yet?" tanong ni Sophia, nakataas ang isang bagong ahit na kilay.

Sumagot naman si Cecile, naka-flex ang mga biceps sa kaniyang muscle shirt, "Bakit? Ikaw? Tinigil mo na ba ang kahibangan mo sa family driver niyong si Redentor?"

Nagtawanan kaming tatlo samantalang si Sophia naman ay namumula sa galit.

"Sinong makating pekpek ang nagsabi sayo tungkol kay Kuya Red???" ang nagpupuyos niyang tanong kay Cecile.

"Oh eh di napa-tagalog ka rin, bitch!" tawa ni Cecile.

"World peace, girls, world peace..." ang pagpapakalma ni Daphne, habang sumesenyas sa waiter na maskulado para magdala pa ng isa pang bucket ng beer.

"Matanong ko lang, kamusta na pala si Papa Coco?" I asked Cecile.

"Ayun, lumipat na sa ibang call center," ang sagot niya, "Malamang naghahanap ng sariwang etits."

"Ew, you're so vulgar," sabi ni Sophia.

"Vulgar your face, eh humahada ka rin naman noh," ganti ni Cecile.

"I don't do that," sabi ni Sophia, with all the conviction a Sales agent can muster.

"Doodat-doodat your face," sagot ni Cecile, "Anyways, ayun nga, umalis na si Papa Coco, nasa Ortigas na ang puta. We are officially another used-to-be."

"Pero, bru, bakit? Bakit siya umalis?" tanong ko.

"The truth?" tanong ni Cecile.

Tumango kami. Kahit si Sophia, taimtim na nakikinig. Curious kasi kami kung bakit sila naghiwalay ng landas. In all aspects, perfect si Papa Coco. Hot, smart, malaki ang....... laman ng wallet.

Huminga ng malalim si Cecile, at sinabing, "Pareho kaming bottom eh."

A moment of silence as our brains processed this shocking tidbit of information.

==============================

But before we carry on, for the uninitiated, let me define a couple of terms:

1) Top = bading na mas gustong siya ang "pumapasok" sa pwerta ng kapwa bading.

2) Bottom = bading na "pinapasok" ng Top.

Keri? Sorry kung di PG-13 ha? May nagbanggit kasi sa akin na kulang sa kabadingan ang blog ko, kaya ayan. Imumudmod ko sa inyo ang typical na pinaguusapan namin.

Go na ulit sa istorya.

==============================

Si Sophia ang unang nagbreak ng silence.

"You're both BOTTOMS?" tanong niya, sabay lagok sa Strong Ice. Nauhaw yata ang puta.

Tumango si Cecile.

"Bottom ka? Ikaw?" tanong ni Daphne. Naglabas ng pamaypay si Sophia, pinagpawisan ng husto bigla.

Di ko agad ma-keri ang balitang ito. Si Cecile? Bottom? Eh putsa ang angas ng itsura ng hayop na to eh, parang makinis at mestizong construction worker na sanay magwasak ng hollow blocks gamit ang patotoy niya, tapos bottom pala ang beki.

Tumingin si Cecile sa aming tatlo. Natawa.

"OA kayo ha, jinu-judge niyo ako. Ehanongayon kung bottom ako?" natatawang tanong niya, "There's nothing wrong with being a bottom, you guys of all people should know that."

"Wala naman kaming sinasabing may masama sa pagiging bottom eh," depensa ko, "Pero siguro, super di lang namin in-expect na someone as rugged and, well, manly as you would be a bottom."

"Honga, bru, mukha kang rapist ng mga college girls eh," dagdag ni Daphne, nagpapahid ng pawis sa noo at batok, "Sa itsura mong yan, mga close friends mo lang ang nakakaalam na kumakain ka pala ng buhay na laman. You look like someone who hangs out sa labas ng Assumption College para maghanap ng ma-a-almusal."

Napaisip si Cecile, "Bakit? Lahat ba ng bottoms effem?"

Nagtinginan kami nina Sophia at Daphne.

"Lahat ng kakilala kong bottom, oo, effem sila kumilos," sabi ni Daphne.

"Siguro naman masyado lang tayong nag-ge-generalize," sabi ko, "I'm sure may mga ibang bottoms na hindi kilos bakla talaga. Endangered species nga lang sila."

Umubo ng pa-demure si Sophia, "Well, as we all know, sa mundo ng kabadingan, mas mabenta talaga ang isang beki kapag sinabi niyang top siya at super discreet pa ang kilos niya."

"True yan, bru, the more na pa-mhin ang eksena at drama ng badet, mas attractive siya sa same sex," dagdag ni Daphne.

"Wait, what about yung mga versa?" tanong ni Sophia.

Versa = Versatile. Ibig sabihin, pwedeng top, pwedeng bottom, depende na sa ka-partner nila.

"What about mga versa?" tanong ni Cecile.

"Aren't they in a gray area? How do they look like and what behavior do they exhibit?" Sophia asked.

"Arte naman nito, eh di bakla pa rin sila. Etits pa rin naman ang habol nila, di ba?" sagot ni Daphne, "Feeling ko nga ang hayok ng mga versa eh. Di sila matimo sa isang area lang. Kelangan parehong posisyon kaya nilang gawin."

"Over ka naman," puna ko.

"Over your face," biro niya, "Basta ang alam ko, sa Gay World, Tops are at the top of the food chain."

"Parang unfair noh?" tanong ko, "Bakit? Attractive din naman ang karamihan sa mga bottoms ah! Kung wala ang mga bottoms, pano na lang ang mga tops? Sino ang i-injectionan nila ng semilya? Ang hirap kayang maging bottom. There's so much work to do."

Tumawa si Cecile, "So bottom ka pala, Bookie?"

Namula ako, "I refuse to answer that question on the grounds na I am still a virgin."

Binato nila akong lahat ng popcorn.

Chura lang...

The other day, pag-baba ko sa elevator sa ground floor, nakasalubong ko ang current dyowa ng ex ko.

I don't think he likes me.

Sabi niya sa akin with a plastic smile on his face, "Parang tumataba ka lalo. Malakas ka pa rin ba kumain?"

I smiled, and answered, "Parang tumatanda ka, naghihirap ka na ba?"

That wiped the smile off his face. He turned around and entered the elevator without another word.

Hay. Sayang. In the mood pa naman ako makipagtarayan that day.

Another One Bites the Dust...

Another Saturday night, another despedida dinner...

This time for Trainer/Dancer Gracie.

Pansin niyo, parang nauubos na yata ang Sales Training Department ng account natin? That's the fourth trainer for the first half of the year.

Hmmm. I wonder what's going on?

Anyway, last Saturday, we had a despedida night out for Trainer Gracie.

We decided to go to a place we've never been to. So nag-dinner kami si Mcdo.

Joke lang.

We went to the place below:

1.pjpeg

I've always wanted to go to Nuvali ever since makita ko ang mga commercials niya sa trailers sa mga sine sa Greenbelt Cinemas.

One reason I've wanted to go there is because of their river taxis.

705.jpg

Kaso, gabi na nung dumating kami at last trip na yata ang naabutan namin.

4.pjpeg

Medyo scary na yata sumakay pag gabi.

But take a look at the water. Punung-puno siya ng Koi!

6.pjpeg
7.pjpeg

It was amazing, really.

And btw, may Convergys pala sa Nuvali.
8.pjpeg

In furnace, ang ganda ng location nila ha.

We chose to have dinner sa Pig-Out; I suggested this place because I read a review by Anton Diaz in ourawesomeplanet.com but I couldn't remember kung maganda ba review niya or hindi.

9.pjpeg
10.pjpeg

11.pjpeg

We were like the only people there.

In the pic above, parang ang busy naman di ba?

We were coloring the placemat drawings they had with the crayons the waitress provided. May contest, pagandahan.

12.pjpeg

Nanalo si Baker Clang dahil may orange blush-on ang pig niya. Biased ang judge.

13.pjpeg

Nakakatuwa rin yung place kasi every hour, sumasayaw yung mga servants na naka-Naruto Shippuden costumes.

14.pjpeg

Favorite namin si Black Spiderman kasi di siya marunong sumayaw, tsaka for some reason wala siyang bukol sa crotch.

At dahil may resident dancer din kami, pinasali na namin siya:

15.pjpeg

At dahil nga the night is all about Trainer Gracie, may regalo sa kaniya si Baker Clang:

16.pjpeg
3817.jpg

Delicious rainbow cupcakes!

18.pjpeg

And will you take a look at the inside of these cupcakes!

Yummy!

Here's the rest of what we ate in the resto:

19.pjpeg

Crispy pata na lasang... crispy pata.

20.pjpeg

Chicharon rice. I don't remember tasting chicharon in it.

21.pjpeg

Lechon paksiw na keri lang. Mas masarap yung sa jolly jeep.

22.pjpeg

Breaded dory fillet with lemon and melted butter. Yummy siya.

23.pjpeg

Sushal na sayote.

Honestly, I enjoyed the drinks more than the food.

24.pjpeg

I ordered the Babe's Favorite drink. Made up of apples, grapes, lemonade, etc. Hindi crushed ice yung nakikita niyo, fruit pulp yan. Very refreshing.

25.pjpeg

Stalker of the Town drink. Made from Celery, which at first seems like a yucky idea, pero masarap siya!

Btw, desserts here like cheesecakes and other stuff are extraordinarily expensive. Pero may free wifi kaya love ko pa rin yung place.

26.pjpeg

After dinner, and a short drive away from Nuvali, is Paseo Center.

A place that is filled with outlet stores:

27.pjpeg
28.pjpeg
29.pjpeg

Meron ding Levi's and Benetton outlet stores. Promise, ang mumura.

After Paseo, we went to Metrowalk sa Ortigas, but not before making another food pitstop.

IMG_5890.jpg
31.pjpeg

Gigantic burgers!

32.pjpeg
33.pjpeg
34.pjpeg

Pagdating sa Starbucks, may inabot sina Trainer Gracie sa akin na candy:

35.pjpeg

Nakikita niya ba kung anong shape meron ang mga candy?

Here's a closer look:

36.pjpeg

Alam ko na kung anong pa-Xmas gift ko sa mga ka-team ko this year.

Apparently, may sex specialty store sa Metrowalk.

It's called the Pleasure Place.

Kaso, bawal kumuha ng pictures sa loob. At may katarayan ang mga saleslady.

Kaya nagpicture ako from the outside:

37.pjpeg
38.pjpeg
39.pjpeg
40.pjpeg
41.pjpeg
42.pjpeg

Oh the places I go to because of my friends...

43.pjpeg

I'll miss you, Gracie!

The End is the Beginning is the End...

Sa Timezone, Glorietta, 6PM:

Pinapanood namin ni Pasha si Schoolboi, na nagpapasikat sa amin sa Guitar Hero.

"He thinks he's a rockstar," ang puna ni Pasha.

I nodded, not saying anything. I was watching the other badets in Timezone watching Schoolboi, and, of course, si Pasha.

As usual, sila pa rin ang kapansin-pansin kahit saan sila pumunta.

"Oh, shit," I thought as I watched Schoolboi play with the guitar, cradling it like it was a lover. So hot.

Pasha gulped down the last of the Coke he had bought, threw it sa trash can, and then faced me, looking all serious.

"What?" I asked, a little freaked out.

He raised his chin, and asked me, "Who's more goodlooking? Me or Schoolboi?"

I was taken aback. Alam kong vain si Pasha, pero he's never been outspoken about it before.

"Well?" he asked again, "Me or Schoolboi?"

I answered him seriously, "Siyempre ikaw."

Weird, hindi ako nahirapan sagutin siya.

He smiled, "Hmmm, that's true. Pero I think you prefer Schoolboi."

I blushed, I think.

I looked away and avoided Pasha's gaze, who was giggling a little.

Schoolboi was done playing. Lumapit siya sa amin.

"I'm gonna go buy something to drink sa Starbucks, want anything?" Schoolboi asked, wiping the sweat from his forehead.

"Pabeelee pow ng green-tea frappe!" ang sagot ni Pasha sa kaniyang Amboy accent.

Schoolboi looked at me, asking if I wanted anything. I smiled and shook my head.

He saluted and ran off to the coffeeshop.

I watched him run away. I sighed.

"You like him, don't you?" asked Pasha, catching me off-guard.

"Ha?"

"Gustow mow si Schoolboi," ang sabi niya, a small smile on his pinkish lips.

I laughed, trying to seem like I thought he was joking, "Okay ka lang? Of course not. He's so not my type."

Tumawa siya ng malakas, inakbayan ako, and he guided me on the way to Starbucks.

We could see Schoolboi inside Starbucks, waving at us from his table.

Before entering, hinarangan ako ni Pasha, at nakangiting sinabi:

"Sweetheart, he's everybody's type. And besides..."

He leaned in close, so close that I could smell his perfume, Clinique Happy, and he whispered in my ear:

"...I know about your blog."

He leaned back, smiled at me charmingly, and went inside.

"Oh, shit," I thought.

Ganito ang itsura ko kapag na-ha-haggard ako:

9me.jpg

Bakit ako na-ha-haggard?

Kelangan ba talaga bumili ka ng damit sa Bench para lang makakuha ka ng tickets sa Bench Uncut?

Wala naman kasya sa akin sa Bench eh!

Paano ko makikita itong mga ito?:

5b1.jpg

Nakita ko na si Jon dati sa mall, before siya sumikat ng husto. Siya lang ang mestizo na madugyot tignan for me, in person.

3b2.jpg

Mahal ko ang katawan ni Aljur. Driver ko naman ang face niya.

0b3.jpg
b7.jpg

Is it just me or does Jake Cuenca have the smallest bukol ever?

b6.jpg

Pati rin itong kay Rafael.

b4.jpg

Who is this guy? Grabe ang katawan niya. Gusto kong bigyang pugay.

b5.jpg

Kahit ang bading ng pose ni Diet dito, ang hot pa rin.

b8.jpg

Eek! Alvin, si Enchong mylabs!

b9.jpg

I saw Christian Bautista in church last month. He did not look like this.

b10.jpg

I'm loco for Coco!

Sheeet! Somebody sponsor me, please lang! :)
