Saturday Central

| Posted in | Posted on Saturday, June 07, 2008

I finally got out of a self-induced seclusion and breathed some fresh air (if that's even possible in Manila) after months of doing the same routine, day after day after day.

I hit up my bestest homey, ex-gangster, ex-model, pimp
extraordinaire, cougar killer, motherhumper, turned boxer, A to the Zizzle for some Saturday afternoon drinks.

Before going to our favorite spot for tap beer, I had to drop this off. Hopefully, it'll help me do something productive very soon.

I was impressed with CJ's time lapse video which he posted on his top-secret site so I tried adding some elements to mine as well.

Let Me Ride from kingcrux31 on Vimeo.

Snapped some photos before this stupid guard asked if I had a permit to shoot photos. I let him hear it then turned my back on him. It's funny how he almost popped a vein trying to speak straight English even though I spoke to him in Filipino. I didn't even have a professional camera. What a dumbass.

When I moved to San Francisco last year, I became a beer connoisseur (quasi-alcoholic) after my dear cousin JR schooled me on different brews on tap and bottle. Upon returning to Manila, he suggested I check out Grappa's in Makati if I want good tap beer. I didn't get to try it until his recent visit and I agree, Grappa's offers the best tap in town.

Here's what I don't get. You go to the mall to give them good business and look at what they do to you in return.

Time in, time out

And you wonder why gas prices are so high

You STILL can't see me!

After 10 years, I finally regained the title of "World Air Hockey Champion" from my man AZ after beating him 7-6.
