screw the status quo. we need change and we need it now. we need not a leader who plays with words and public funds. we need not a leader whose years of service fall under the 'fiction' category. we definitely need not a leader who knows nothing. we require a leader who has conviction, who has the guts to change the seemingly unchangeable. we need... to prepare for 2007. Now.

Well perhaps I am the first one to admit that I am older than 30.

Here's my Story:

SM Malls were just booming all over Epifanio De los Santos Ave.

Robinson Galleria Mall was a "Talahiban" (tall grasses). When Mandaluyong was not a City, and there was still traffic w/o the fly over. The 1980's was just the beginning of a new Gen X. When AIDS was introduced to the world and Micky D's tasted like a newspaper - because it took 50 years for the American Economy to invade the world again.

4 pesos against a dollar. My Step-father was the first Batch of OCWs to be recruited to work for Saudi Arabia. 1983 was turning point for the Marcos Regime. He will face the wrath of the Filipino People in 1986. And in 1986 My Father petitioned me to be an American sixty-cent but not quite.

Hey, when did the nintendo game and watch come out? I also remember playing Famicom/Family Computer... playing Super Street Fighter on SNES until my thumb actually had blisters...watching Airwolf, Knight Rider (bakla ba si Kitt?)... Star Rangers, the template for Power Rangers...Along with Perfect Strangers, does anyone remember watching ALF (alien life form)? Back in 89, barkada anthem namin yung "Salamat" by the Dawn.

ewan ko nga ba kung may kababata ako d2?

lam mu ba ung larong taguang baka' na pag nakita ay hahabulin ka at tatayain pa;

gumagawa ka ba ng pagulong na ang gulong nya ay binilog na sirang tsenelas at ang hawakan nya ay mahabang kawayan.

pag tatambay ako noon nakasakay ako sa bao na ang hawakan ay laying ng saging;

nagsusugal ba kayo na ang gamit na pera ay balat ng kendi?

alam mu ba ung larong sikyo na pag nataya ka ay makawak kamay kayo ng kakampi mo nakapila dun sa base ng kalaban.
