I Am Not My Hair

Alright, alright.

I shaved my head.

It’s no big deal.

Neither is it a matter of national interest.

But apparently for some, it is.

Everyone had an opinion on Raft3r’s buzz cut.

My three year old niece was the most affected. “You’re no longer Joe, tito,” she lamented.

Even the stylist at the salon reluctantly agreed to my new haircut.

I asked that he use razor #4. He kept asking me if I was sure. I said yes. He rolled his eyes and proceeded to do the deed.

Guess this is how life in a fish bowl feels like. Suddenly being a starlet ain’t all that fun, after all.

Sana lang bagay sa iyo. hehe

Raft3r said...

len, You will never know. Yun ang masaklap. Nyahaha

ganns said...

Whatever rocks your boat, kiddo. Glad you did something different to shake things up a bit. I'm sure you look terrific.

the donG said...

last time i had my hair so short was during my ROTC days. hahaha... let me see if i need to try it again.

i think it also depends on the shape of the head.

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Hehe. Nalalamigan bumbunan ko.

Wendy said...

May kilala ko, heartthrob sya nung may buhok. E nainitan yata, nagpakalbo! Hindi na sya heartthrob ngayon. Pero kung hawig mo si Pat Rafter, aba ibang usapan yan! Hahaha

Raft3r said...

wendy, What a sad life he lives. Hehe

len said...

Celestine said...

I love your new look! Although, your nieces are right, you did look like Joe with the "long hair". But enough about that...

Raft3r said...

len, Gusto ko in person. Hehe. Parang eyeball ba. Nyahaha

joemill, Epekto lang ito ng Prison Break marathon ko. Hehe

eden, I wore a hood when we had a bowling tournament the other night. Nilamig ulo ko, eh. Nyahaha

celestine, Parang kilala kita! Macheck nya profile mo. Hehe. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!

laieesha said...

Raft3r said...

laieesha, Tanong mo na lang si Judayski. Nyahaha

Random Student said...

napapanahon naman kasi ngayong tag-ulan. imagine, paglagpak ng ulan sa bumbunan mo sasayad lang sandali tapos bababa na.

Raft3r said...

random student, Nyahaha. I never thought of it that way. Hehe

Liz said...

Dapat with accompanying photo! I want to see it!

Raft3r said...

liz, Hehe. We'll see.

RaYe said...

hmnn, a part of me always wanted to shave my head and wear big dangling earrings.. and then have some head tattooes...

now that i'm fat, di ko na pwedeng gawin un.. ahahahah

Raft3r said...

raYe, No one's fat. That's the truth.

Lawstude said...

pendong!!!

wala ba pic?

Farrah said...

denoy,iba pala effect ng prison break sayo..haha :) honestly, i liked it..looks good on you..:)

Beth said...

Ksi naman, walang pic kaya di ko tuloy ma-check kung bagay. But Jerick is so right! A gwapo man will always look good no matter what haircut he wears, or if he ever has one! :)

Nasa pagdadala yan. I think the fact that you like it, ok lang yan. Len is right din. There's something weirdly attractive sa mga skinhead guys. I liked Brad Pitt nung nagpakalbo siya, or skinhead ba un?

Just be confident! :)

Raft3r said...

lawstude, Nyahaha. Nasan ang kalbo? Hehe

farrah, Naks naman! Salamat sa pagbisita. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!

beth, Confidence. Yan lang ang meron ako. Wala ng iba. Hehe

Judayski said...

hello, poging starlet!

it's growing on me na. gusto na kita i-date. tarush! para ka na si season 6 House!

btw, i watched T2 last saturday, anak ng tofu, that's almost 2 hours of my life i'll never get back. suddenly, di ko na pinanghinayangan ang wasted time ko sa Bruno.

Raft3r said...

judayski, T2 ng Star Cinema ba yan? Pucha. I spent 600 bucks on that huge piece of crap. Gusto ko syang punitin sa harap ni Charo Santos! Syet!

Judayski said...

oo, yun na nga. in between its supposed nakakagulat scenes na natawa lang naman ako, i had time to daydream pa about my kimchi o isipin kung anong kakainin ko ng dinner. ahahaha! ganun sya kabagal at ka... ah, basta.

Raft3r said...

judayski, That movie sucked. Big time. Buti pa yun Sundo ng GMA Films. Panalo. Masakit din sa bulsa. 600 na naman, eh. Hehe

Fine Life Folk said...
