Porkchop Workshop

Back from the Heights Workshop.Witnessed, once again, how Danny and Beni can take an idea from a poem and give it a life of its own (to the horror or awe of the writer). Finally met Luna Sicat (ang bait bait na tao). Discussed a Tagalog poem IN Tagalog for the first time (ang sarap sarap ng Tagalog self!). Had the deep pleasure of meeting student writers whose intensity, complication, and crazy/passion for words reminded me of my own rabid/intense/word hungry hungry hungry years as an undergrad. OA hungry. Poetry reading in the field hungry. That laughing from the belly forgetting one's manners kind of. Hungry. I want a nice big salmon sandwich.

Back to the real world!

Dinner with andrea and darwin last night. Macdo. At night. I don't know how many times I've done this. 


Enjoy your day even if the oysters of sunday are getting to you.

Stayed in the whole day yesterday because a manghuhula told me a few months ago that I needed to be careful on aug . 15. Yes, that exact. So not wanting to take chances with fate, I decided to clean my bathroom and color-code my closet. Too many. Too many blue shirts. haha And yes, I swear I'm so 90s and unashamed of it! 

Even if manila's rainy rainy, it's good to be back.
