Was planning our trip to Boracay… who am I kidding I just said (whined), “can I just pay”? The last time I was in the island was in April 2007, when Abe, Len-Len, Tin, and I worked there as general physicians. I’ve blogged about it somewhere in this bloggeth, or was it in Friendster? For two weeks we went around the island, seeing rich people who had stepped on sea urchins, divers who dove too deep, and prowlers who had the misfortune of getting gonorrhea from beach sex. We had described Boracay as Malate by the sea, so we weren’t really interested in going back. I wonder if the Julie’s bakeshops which had sustained us for with cheap breakfast are still there.

Was able to buy an action figure after almost a year with no new purchase. It seems like I’ve just lost any interest in action figures, and seeing them all knocked down in my eskaparate makes me want to give up the hobby all together. I tried buying The Batman of Zur-En-Arrh multiple times, but just as I was about to pay for it I would change my mind and place it back in the shelf. This time someone was around to enable materialism, so I was able to buy it without remorse. Of course I had to open it even as we were having paella and sangria. We had croquetas, calamares rebozados, paella with tiny pieces of chorizo, and sangria, but of course I only took photo of… the toy.
