something that i think belongs in this thread... this is an old blog entry from 3 years ago... enjoy!
last saturday, i went out for the first time with this old suitor from high school whom i recently bumped into thru Friendster. we watched The Bourne Ultimatum and then thought to take a quick trip to the restrooms before having lunch.
so there i was in front of the mirror, and he peeked in and saw me fixing my hair and retouching my make-up, and he made jokes about how i was pretty already and how i should just finish up so we can go, and so i did. and just outside the door, he takes my hands - both of them - in his, gently leans into me as i hold my breath, and then whispers..."bukas ang zipper mo."

Have reread this three times, and I still laughed hard, almost like watching a sitcom. Here's my share:
I'm not really into foreigners, and the advent of tsinovelas and koreanovelas didn't even change that. But trying to practice filipino's cordiality, I once agreed to go on a date with one of my classmates, a taiwanese national. I tried my best to act all natural and pleasant, but the whole ordeal was pretty lame and boring. Not to mention our miserable attempt to understand each other, he can speak in English but in Chinese accent, which only made me more perturbed. While we were walking in the mall, he suddenly held my hand, and dropped some cheesy one liners which could have actually worked if I have the hots for him. C'mon guys, I just thought you can sense if the girl is in any way - into you. If all you're getting are nonchalant looks, you probably should delay your advancements. Never ruin friendly dates, unless you're Casanova. I was weirdly surprised and managed an awkward smile, which he probably sensed, that he decided to take me home.
When our semestral break started, he phoned me, asking if I want to go on vacation with him to Taiwan to meet his parents. You gotta be kidding me.
