This Day Last Year

October 2015 Haze Davao City

The haze in Davao last year was due to Indonesia's forest fires. It's not every day that we get a sunrise like this; it was waiting to be captured.

Gangsta Issues

At Church today, the woman in front of me let her son play on her mobile while the priest was having his homily. The boy played with volume, so I told him to turn the volume down. I really, really, really don't like it when this happens. It makes me mad and sad at the same time. I can't count how many times I have reprimanded people, especially kids and teenagers who are playing with their mobile phones on masses.

So I sat back on my seat, then see the lady beside me texting! Riiiight...Was it okay I surrendered?

Yesterday, I received an email from my American client. So she finally heard about the president, unfortunately she thought he was scary. So I wrote her an email, my first long one, to explain what's really happening here. It was my first defense of the president, and hopefully the last. It's getting harder by the day to defend him. I just wish he would stop talking.

She sent her reply this morning. She liked the long exchange and said it made her know me a little better. :)

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony laughing
I love this rare photo of them laughing. Precious!

MUSIC. I had a 90s RnB and Hip hop September! I had on repeat music by Color Me Badd and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. In fact I'm still under the BTNH spell, immersing myself with their life stories and music. There's this exhaustive, not to mention extremely long, article about BTNH's history called MACHETES DIPPED IN RUM: The Oral History of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. It's so worth checking out! I also watched this documentary, TV One's Unsung on Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

Actually, the reason I got the BTNH bug was because of TV One's Unsung series, the Hollywood version. I saw this Unsung Hollywood episode about New York Undercover, the TV series I used to watch on ABC 5 (now TV 5 in the Philippines) mid-90s. I forgot how much I loved that show! Then, while I was browsing Unsung's other episodes, I found the feature on BTNH.
