Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Just because I smile every time we run into each other at the hallway does not mean I like you.

Life Swallower

If this bill becomes a law, spitting in public becomes illegal.

The Philippines is a nation of spitters. How can Pinoys possibly survive this tragedy?

Clearly, House Bill 5901 is a big fan of swallowers.

Drive My Car

Quitting doesn't necessarily make you a loser.

Going by that premise, I give up.

I cannot take it anymore.

That's it.

I'm buying a car.

Commuting will be the death of me.


I am not built that way.

What Is Love

It is otherwise known as martyrdom.

Don't Look Back In Anger

You know you are getting older when:

Clubbing no longer excites you;

You miss watching Friends;

You can no longer pull an all niter and still report for work the following day;

You go to a music store in search of a Cyndi Lauper CD and the teen clerk is totally clueless;

You started dating at the time pagers were the coolest gadget around;

You have a vast collection of cassette tapes;

You wrote your undergraduate thesis using WordStar 4 processor.

Wanted Dead Or Alive

My suicidal best friend turns a year older today.

For almost a decade, he has single-handedly proven that Raft3r's theory is correct.

You can always cheat death by pretending you want to die.

Didn't We Almost Have It All

Quote of the day:

"Tito (Uncle), you can buy Siri. You can buy MacBook Air. But you can't buy me a $50 toy. Hmp."

- Raft3r's 8 year old niece

She's So Unusual

Raft3r is about to come full circle.

Cyndi Lauper, my first crush, returns to Manila for a March 17 show.

Back in the late 80's, Raft3r attended Lauper's A Night To Remember Tour.

That was my first concert.

23 years later, Raft3r and Lauper are reunited.

Let the good times roll.

No Other Woman

Bakit ba mas maepal pa ang kabit kesa sa legal wife?

Boy On A String

I would never fully understand the situation because I am not a member of any fraternity.

Ask any frat member and they would say that brotherhood is strong in their organization.

But since when has inflicting bodily harm to others become part and parcel of brotherhood and camaraderie?

Back in law school, I received offers from several fraternities. Their main come-on is "We're family."

But I already have one and my real family will never lay a hand on me.

Why would I let someone hurt me when my folks never resorted to violence in disciplining me.

The spokesperson for Lambda Rho Beta said that hazing is not part of their tradition.

Lawyers are indeed liars.
