Thinking Alike

Daloydoy
Cebu




Noticing his half-smile and empty stare by the window, the girl stood beside her boyfriend and asked. “What are you thinking about?” Silence. Then he replied, “The same as what you are thinking.” She cooed, swayed from side to side and in her softest voice said, “You’re naughty….”




Read My Lips


Daloydoy Daloydoy
Radio Show, Cebu


Why do you like me? I’m not handsome? I’m not rich? I’m not smart? Tell me the reason mi amor, why do you like me so much??? Without speaking a word, she dropped her eyes, a little embarrassed, then pouted her lips to point - at her boyfriend’s crotch. (Recorded laughing)

Keep Off!


Embassy of Ecuador
London, United Kingdom

A country’s sovereignty is freedom from forced outside intervention. This extends to all embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions (considered extensions of territory) and is inviolable. A threat to sovereignty is to be dealt with utmost caution as it can be interpreted as naked aggression. The international law on inviolability is again put to the test in Ecuador’s London embassy with the planned taking of the fearless wikileaks founder Julian Assange by Britain. Ecuador's position is clear and is supported by the coalition of South American states and all other sovereigns all over the world. Britain heard he outcry and backed off....

Giant Leap


The Moon

Today, at 82, Neil Armstrong died. He commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft in 1969. Upon landing, his first words were: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." which didn’t make any sense. Actually, what he said made the letter a (the lack of it between for and man) very powerful – it screwed the message altogether! The landing itself was controversial (Did it happen? Or was it only in the desert wastes of Nevada?) It’s the flag - that seemed to flutter in the wind when there supposed to be none, on the moon….

Enough!


USADA
United States

The Tour De France is the most grueling cycling event in the world. Winning it catapults a rider to instant greatness. Lance Armstrong won it SEVEN TIMES over from 1999 to 2005. And for choosing to remain silent in new doping allegations, an entity is trying to strip him of titles it doesn’t even give out. It defies logic! It has to be something personal, deeply rooted vendetta from within the core of USADA. Exhausted, Lance said, “There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, ‘Enough is enough.’ For me, that time is now….”

Tacky


Santee Alley
Downtown L.A.



“Oh I just lo-oove the detail of this dress!” Jennifer beamed, delighted somebody approved of her taste. “See?” But with all the ruffles all over the place, it’s a little tacky for me so I was annoyed and in disbelief of the compliment. Sara, come down here please.” the intercom blurted. “Oh I gotta go!” It turns out the girl was another salesclerk in the store! Some nerve people have just to sell, I thought to myself. On the way out I said, "Nice shoes, Sara!" She looked down at her chipped high hills, and smiled knowingly....

Take A Hike


Cebu
Philippines

You have to go down towards the valley floor to a little lake then up a slope. As you go up, the hill in front of you rises, revealing a nipa hut and cows grazing amidst the backdrop of a setting sun and an explosion of pastel colored clouds that linger in the twilight. We usually stop and sit and wait until darkness falls before heading home….

Ostrich Eggs


IFFS
Singapore

This was an act we kept repeating at an International Furniture Festival in Singapore when potential buyers come by: “Are you telling me these are real ostrich eggs?” Melanie gasps as she points at the huge eggs under the glass-topped wicker table. I would enthusiastically reply, “Yes absolutely!” The buyers usually join in the conversation at this point. I tell you, “The Nest” was one of the bestsellers in that exhibition. “But you’re killing them. You should have let the eggs hatch!” one lady rebuked. Melanie was dumbfounded. “Oh I was acting too!” she jokingly slapped an almost crying Melanie…..
