Finished clinics at around 2:30 pm, and I ran to the nearest source of food I could find, aka Army Navy, for lunch. I felt like I would pass out (exaj), which makes me wonder how people doing intermittent fasting do it without going totally ballistic. I figured fried chicken would take longer to cook, so I had one of those soft taco thingies with pork in it. I don’t like Mexican food, and I never liked Army Navy, but I was stuck there. In pure hunger I engulfed the damn thing in a few bites, after which I felt my stomach growling in protest at the tough pieces of meat I had to swallow whole. Realized it was my first time to eat in Army Navy since 2019, but I could still remember the terrible state of that branch’s bathroom so my stomach cooperated and stopped acting out.

With me was a copy of Joel Salud’s book of essays on political issues, In The Line of Fire, which I had him sign in the recent Manila International Bookfair. It is the 50th anniversary of the Martial Law declaration, and while I no longer feel like I’m in a post-elections parallel universe of absurdity, I still have a level of rage that I will never let go. I intend to hold on to this rage for as long as I can. Rage to ensure that I don’t forget.

Had early dinner in Tagaytay, and Coriandor Demosthethenes demonstrated a new feature of iOS 16. Apparently you can now long press on a photo, and a silver aura will surround the person and remove the background! I don’t know why I would ever do it, but tried it anyway! Till the next update with MORE featurettes!
