August

The start of August was devastating for all free Filipinos worldwide. Our beloved Ex-President Corazon Aquino passed away leaving behind a legacy no other Asian might achieve for a long time. Wrote a separate entry here. But, aside from Tita Cory’s death, August made 2009 fun and worthy again. August boasts of awesome parties that included a contender for Event of the Year, memorable nightouts, a glorious wedding, birthdays of important people, et cetera. Trust me, I loved it.

August 1, 2009 | Ex-President Corazon Aquino Passes Away
Related entry: Thank you, Cory

August 1-2, 2009 | Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific
If there was another event other than the sad one above that I was not jumping for joy for, it was this one: a mandatory visit to Dad and his new career in the Marines. The campus grounds were seriously awesome. State-of-the-art equipment and Eastern technology, so for a very, very, very brief moment of disillusionment, I actually considered enlisting for the Marines. I’d probably die on my first day of training. Dad seems to be really adjusting with provincial life so that’s good. In conclusion: I will not survive provincial life!

August 5, 2009 | Ex-President Corazon Aquino Laid to Rest
In a ceremony similar his late husband and unofficial National Hero, Ninoy Aquino, Cory Aquino was laid to rest with over half a million people following the procession from Manila Cathedral to her final resting place that is Manila Memorial Park, beside Ninoy. It took almost 10 hours but she reached there peacefully. It was a fitting end for another National Hero.

August 7, 2009 | T&C General Assembly
& Third Year Anniversary
I know not much about the general assembly except that I was awarded a Certified Captionist plaque and that they played some sort of game and there were free donuts. My superior decided to speak with me one-on-one because my superior feels there’s something wrong and I need to share. Fine, I did. I was honest and I couldn’t care less. We’re fine now, at least I think we are. This day also marks my third year in the company. Big whoop.

August 8, 2009 | Home Depot Session with the Mean Boys
What a memorable night. Never would have I ever imagine that I will forget my ATM pin, thus, making me moneyless the whole night. What’s worse? It was before we started our session making me sober and alert. Sheer stupidity on my part. Went to this bar in Home Depot, Ortigas, too bad I forgot the name of the place. We did win a bag full of condoms and other Frenzy swags. Awesome! Transferred to Sidebar Café at El Pueblo after and met with old friends, but still without any funds, we weren’t able to go to the “after-after-party” which would make all one’s woes go away. “I Never” was introduced in this session.

August 14, 2009 | Registered Voter
Because I am such a responsible citizen of my country, I have decided to register for the upcoming 2010 elections. That, and because the registration committee decided to personally visit our village and allow residents to register in the convenience of their own area. Never thought there are so many unregistered people. Just think how much vote these people are.

August 15, 2009 | G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra
This day started with me scouring the northern area of Metro Manila for the perfect formal coat, or at least a coat that will fit me. I did find one in SM Megamall, it was like it was tailored for me…so yay for that. Finished early so I decided to pick up O and we watched G.I. Joe in SM Mall of Asia. Yes, it solidified my undying love for Sienna Miller and that movie might actually the movie of the year for me. We’ll see. Ate dinner at Roasters afterwards with some shocking revelations for dessert. LOL!

August 18, 2009 | Enterprise Breakfast with Mamee and Diana
Well, I got me meself an iPod shuffle just for eating breakfast with Mamee and Diana. Woohoo! Thank you, Mamee. Never knew there were some very interesting and hot patrons in that building eating very early. Must meet and dine there more.

August 20, 2009 | Authentic Korean Haircut
After like two months, I decided to have my hair cut. It needs volume and shape and I also need to look presentable for the upcoming wedding that I am attending. I did not want my usual style so I decided to try out this Korean salon near our office. When I say authentic, your hair stylists are really Koreans who I had a hard time communicating with, because they only respond to yes and no and hand gestures. I liked the result though. And it’s cheaper than my regular stylist, so.

August 21, 2009 | Makeshift MeanBoys Session
at Pier One, The Fort

With the weather really bad and no plans whatsoever, I decided to dial up some friends’ digits hoping for a night of drinking and hooking up. Indeed, we got together to drink. As expected, just to drink. Like I said, it was short-noticed so not much happened, just exchanged silly stories and went home earlier than usual. We did not win condoms that night and there aren’t any after-after-parties.

August 29, 2009 | Roi and Maricar’s Wedding
Months of preparations but years in the making. Uncle Roi (as I fondly call him) ties the knot with his long-time love, Maricar. Surprised as I am for them asking me to be a part of their entourage, I was really excited and totally grateful. They chose Mary Immaculate Nature Church at Las Piñas as the place to exchange vows. The road to the site was known for its heavy traffic, which made my supposed less than one hour trip to be two and a half. I did not make the pre-pictorials for the entourage, which I am really apologetic for, Uncle. Anyway, the wedding went off without a hitch and it ended well. Met some interesting Southern people and discovered that a real uncle of mine is a very famous individual in their province. Cool! Enjoyed the wedding. Now, I’m off to the second part of this epical day: VanessaPalooza 2009.

August 29-30, 2009 | VanessaPalooza 2009
As if a grand wedding isn’t enough, it’s also Vanessa’s 25th birthday party and she decided to throw a party of ultimate proportions. Why the ultimate proportions? Because the party was held in her and O’s hometown: Cavite, the one place I try to avoid for reasons that Cavite is a different region and bad things happen to me when I travel there. But, in the spirit of camaraderie and just because I wouldn’t miss an event such as that, armed with Vanessa’s personalized map, I drove there, from Las Piñas to Cavite, all by myself, and I only got lost, like, a couple of times? Made it in one piece. My arrival was grand, of course, as I was wearing my wedding clothes. The guys are already there but it was only when I they felt my presence that they decided to kick off VanessaPalooza, at least, according to O. Great food, free-flowing drinks which is unusual for me because beers were the first one to go before the Cruisers. Swanky! We played “I Never...” a drinking game O and I were dying to play with friends. Lots of revelations and some friendly bantering which ended up into some controversial alienation. LOL! Vanessa’s rented videoke machine comes with a mic stand, it added drama. Anyway, most of us slept there because the party lasted until breakfast, thereafter, a long drive home. Thank you, Vanessa. See you in the next VanessaPalooza 2014! Hahaha!

August 31, 2009 | TriNoma Lunch and Merienda with Parents
For some reason, yet again, Dad’s been itching to spend his money on us and we are more than happy to oblige. It’s just that we were so busy the whole month that even long weekends (which does to not apply to my loser job) are luxuries. Finally, we found time to be with him. We ate at Gerry’s because he loves ‘em native cuisine and I treated them to Five Cows Resto and Ice Cream Bar. Awesome way to end an awesome month.

My word of the month is “Awesome,” obviously. I’m purposely including it in every sentence or phrase that I say. It’s gonna be big, I tell you. Awesome. Awesome August. Yeah! I did miss Bino’s birthday session start of the month…that sucks! And on the same night as VanessaPalooza’s, August-born Mean Boys threw a huge party and Paul O. called for a session/meeting with the old bankers for night of seafood and cocktails. Obviously, I cannot split myself into 4 so I wasn’t there. But as you have read, there were other marvelous celebrations that compensated for that.

Shoutout of Happy Birthdays to: +Papa Pedro. T.Lisa, Bugal,Tonichi, Loti, Soffy, Kimi, Anita, Paolo G., Val, Jio, Cuyeg, Tatz, Don J., Biboy Chris, Nyce, Nikoy, Vanessa, Eunice, Talla and to my loving cousins: Bea and Angelo

So those were some of the best moments of August 2009. I hope people enjoyed the month as much as I did. Funny, August always seemed boring to me. Nothing much happens. And it never tops the following month, which is my favorite of the year, the month that lots of life-changing things happen, where only three days of this month I know no one of celebrating their birthdays, marks the start of the “-Ber” season: September.
