I Wanna Be A Supermodel

October 28, 2011
Mall of Asia

A strange man approached Raft3r.

Strange man: "Excuse me. Would you like to do a VTR?"

Raft3r: "Huh?"

He handed me his card.

Strange man: "You got potential."

I smiled politely.

Strange man: "But you need to lose some weight and start working out."

I returned his biz card and walked away.

No one disrespects Raft3r and gets away with it.

Cater 2 U

I dunno anyone who goes to a buffet just for the salad.

Do you?

It's been over 14 years since I've taken the LRT (Light Rail Transit).

Not much has changed since the last time I've set foot at their EDSA station:

- It is still overcrowded.

- Commuters still shove each other to get ahead.

- Some still have awful body odor.

- Though it is the fastest mode of public transport in the country, the LRT is still miles apart from its Southeast Asian counterparts.

Crazy Bitch

She's back!

Armed with photos showcasing her current medical condition and two (so far) failed attempts to flee the country, GMA is again grabbing headlines.

Being a flight risk and all, the former President's hope of going overseas for medical treatment has now become a national debate.

Like any typical Filipino, parties involved have resorted to name calling. In fact, GMA's camp tagged P-Noy as a spoiled brat.

Gloria's present predicament - by far - has more twists and turns than your usual telenovela.

No one really knows what would happen next.

But one thing is certain.

Although strapped in a wheelchair, Gloria would not take this sitting down.

I Know What You Want

I want to learn how to play the guitar.

I want a new car.

I want all kids to be properly educated.

I want to be reincarnated as a blonde and blue eyed heartthrob.

I want you to leave me alone.

Where Is The Love?

Why are most Pinoys so demonstrative in showing their gratitude towards foreigners but not to their fellow countrymen?

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

A gentleman's advice to women who were wronged by their ex/es:

1. Never think it's all your fault. It never is.

2. Don't turn into a bitch. Man hating won't get you anywhere.

3. Never lose sleep over a heartbreak. We don't.

4. Don't over analyze. When we say "It's not you. It's me," we really mean it.

5. Get out more. The right man or woman would come along shortly.

Party All The Time

Raft3r watched two concerts in one week.

The Black Eyed Peas partied at The Mall of Asia on October 25.

I enjoy pop shows. They come with dazzling lights, numerous costume changes, extravagant stage design. and crew did not disappoint. They sang most of their hits (My Humps, included).

Fergie's ass just won't quit. Raft3r would pay good money just to see her wiggle it.

A stripped down Jason Mraz performed at Smart Araneta on the 30th.

I was surprised to see a huge crowd. Who knew he has a solid fan base in the Philippines.

Oh by the way, Raft3r accidentally caught the live performance of Anne Curtis in Megamall.

Her rendition of the Heart classic Alone was truly hair raising.

I leave it up to you to discern whether the previous statement is a compliment or not.

The Ego Has Landed

On the last day of a long weekend, my nieces and I decided to stay at a hotel near work.

Raft3r: "Let's go!"

Niece 1: "But you have to take a shower first."

Raft3r: "I did."

Niece 2: "Then why are you dressed that way?"

This goes to show how highly people in my family think of me.

Post script: The Deadbeat Club's 500th post has arrived.
