For violating the odd-even scheme along EDSA a day after Christmas on my way to work, second was an illegal right turn from Roxas Blvd. to Buendia (on a Sunday), and third was violating the yellow lane/bus lane near the Magallanes interchange (I was on my way to Powersmash to play badminton after office).
• I have gotten away from getting my license confiscated twice, for swerving from Guadix to the Ortigas flyover and when I got caught in the bus lane along EDSA to turn right at Guadix. Nagmakaawa ako. hahahahaha
• I am a more careful driver now, especially if I have my nephews and niece as passengers

• I collect. Stationeries since grade school. Smiley stickers. ESPRIT tags. CDs. Souvenirs from trips.
• When I was growing up, I knew we were not rich, just “comfortable.”
• When they say I’m a rich kid, I would answer back, “Hindi ako mayaman, nanay at tatay ko ang mayaman.”

Actually, Rose, my sister ang bumibili. I think she has the very first issue (wala pa siyang 100 pesos noon). Nakakatawa nga kasi when I was starting pa lang noon sa ADB, pag magkikita kame ni Rose sa megamall, we would always meet sa Pugad Baboy. That means, magkikita kami sa National Bookstore, sa row ng Pugad Baboy. One time, yung isa kong officemate na katabi ko, narinig pala. She asked me kung saan yung Pugad Baboy (takang taka siya), I had to tell her na sa National Bookstore po iyon sa may comics section. hahahahahahaha!!!

Hehehe, kaya pala you mentioned about NBS last night. Now ko lang gets. My pamangkins are into PB, also. But of course, they only borrow my copies. It gives me so much joy when they laugh while reading it. We should seek PMJr for his autograph....
