It all happened many years ago during a seminar at a resort in Laguna.

A colleague and I accompanied each other to the restroom to answer nature’s defiant call. After we have entered, we searched for urinals but there were none.

She mentioned this in the wake of an uproar over a very pricey building that was built to the tune of two billion pesos, by the patriarch of her family in an upscale city. Her brother, who now sits as the mayor of that city, described the notorious building as “world-class.”

PBB ALL IN: The Unlikely Winner

I am a quite certain that many Filipinos out there would have wanted a kababayan to have emerged as the winner in the recently concluded Pinoy Big Brother: All In.

Thank you to all my contributors, for allowing me to enshrine your wonderful and wacky versions in this humble blog (XOXO).
