Isn’t it great to have a good hot cup of coffee while thinking about your friends, such as the amazing bloggers I know like you?
It’s tax period here in Manila and I’m jumping from one galaxy to the next riding my Bicentennial Hawk, the improved version of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon, of course! The Stargate keeps on closing and opening throwing me into the deep abyss of a wormhole rendering my trusted communicator powerless to connect to our Galactic Network. As soon as I hyperspace back to our Star System, I’ll catch up with you great guys!
Missing you all!
Nope, it’s not the Phantom of the Opera, it was the Phantom of the “Teenage Rebels”…!
When I was in college, I had a band, together with my brother, where I was playing the drums. It was called “Teenage Rebels” (of course, I was a teenager then!). And like the 80’s bands back then, we were like Billy Idol wearing Gothic accessories playing the music composed by Led Zep, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Duran Duran, Eric Clapton, Flock of Seagulls, and Stray Cats to name a few.
One of the goth item I wore during those days which I found kept for decades is my “Skull Ring”. Believe it or not, my favorite comic strip hero found on newspapers was “The Phantom”… And my Skull Ring brought a placebo-like effect turning me into the Phantom of the band playing the drums as a member of the Teenage Rebels! Yap, those were the days when being a rebel is synonymous to a high level of testosterone waiting to be unleashed!
I’m the ghost who walks…!

Based on my latest count, there are a thousand culinary sweet assortments that are called “desserts”… Though I don’t know why the desserts are called “desserts” and why they should be sweet and why they should be usually eaten after a meal. Well, I don’t care about these eating etiquettes, I eat my “dessert” anytime I want to eat it.
Nobody can stop me from eating it before a meal…! Nobody can stop me from eating it way past bed time…! And definitely, nobody can stop me from eating it if my sweet tooth is craving for it. By the way, where the hell is our “sweet tooth”? All of my teeth don’t have any taste at all, unless if there’s a decaying meat lodged in there for a week without toothbrushing or flossing! Is one of your tooth sweeter from the rest of your teeth?
Anyway, I just want you to crave and drop your jaw with envy knowing that I am now eating two of my favorite dessert… the Ferrero dark chocolate and “Sansrival“!
This was me when I graduated in college in 1988…
… And this is me today at 50 years of age, 28 years after! And please, disregard the photobomber behind me. Hehehe!
Do you still remember the last time you rode a kiddie horse like this one? Do you miss doing it? Do you want to do it again?
Don’t ask me… I tried riding it but the crew told me that I’m too old and too heavy to be on a kiddie horse like this one! Bo-huhuhu!
