Meeting With An Old Friend

Right after work yesterday I hurriedly headed to Makati to meet an old friend. Along the way we decided where to meet excatly through sms. He got there first and he decided McDonalds at Glorieta would be the spot. I agreed.

As promised. Mark and me at Starbucks Greenbelt 3...

Nempsie, Allan Rey and Mark aka Mong... This picture was taken the last time they met. Too bad I wasn't there. I read the invite too late... (courtesy of Mark's Friendster)

Mark or famously known as Mong was a long-time friend, more like a childhood friend. We have been classmates since the third grade and the entire high school. We were close friends. Why Mong? Hmmm... Well, remember the post I had regarding MOCC where during the training we were given tag names? Mine was Pinokyo and his' was Mong. I really don't know what it means but it kinda stuck to him. Everyone started calling him Mong and even his friendster says Mong. Hahaha...

Actually the meeting was long due. Eversince he got here in Manila he had been texting me to meet him and the rest of our friends. I kinda drifted away from "the rest of our friends." I don't remember what exactly happened. Probably I grew out of it - the cheesiness of high school and stuff. I felt there were a lot of pretensions going on. But Mark, after high school moved to Iloilo where he studied Accountancy at UP Visayas. After graduation he went here to study for his board exams (good thing journalism studs don't have to go through with this... thank god!) and after six months he started working at SGV (or was it SVG--not really sure), an accountancy firm in Makati.

Yesterday morning, I was checking my Friendster and I saw a message from him inviting me to join him, Allan Rey and Nempsie on a night out. I was not exactly sure what it was but I read it too late. In my Yahoo I saw several messages from him the last having an attachment of their picture while on that "night out." (the pic above)

So I got his number and texted him that I was free yesterday after work though I haven't had sleep.

I stayed outside McDonalds and sent him a message and then out of nowhere this small guy in a corporate outfit (with a tie) came rushing to me with a big smile on his face. It was Mark. His face didn't change. He's still that adorable being that he was back in highschool -- only in longsleeves and a tie. We had dinner at KFC (I hate their chicken bbq btw) and headed to Greenbelt 3 and had coffee at Starbucks. We talked some more about what I have missed during the times that I was unofficially AWOL from the high school batch. Hahaha. And of course, being the nosy me, I couldn't help but ask about who in the batch has families and kids already. The journalist in me, I always have this apetite for news. (or chismis)...

After coffee we headed to Absynthe (tama ba spelling?) upstairs and had a bottle of beer. The conversation went from me telling all that happened to me (e.g. past relationships, sex epxeriences, college stories, work stuff etc) to me asking him how his lovelife is. He instantly said he didn't have one. Never had one infact. So I said, "Don't tell me you're still a V-I-R-G-I-N?!" He said no. He didn't want to tell me the story though. But I'll get out from him one way or another. Hahaha...

We are meeting again on Saturday pro'ly with other friends. Hmmm... I am thinking of Malate. I wonder if they'll be agreeable to that...

{still to be edited}
I had no time to upload our pics from last night but I promise to post them as soon as I can...

2010 - Wow! I can't believe this blog is already 4 years old! I would like to thank everyone has been so nice to me and my blog. I am really happy that there are people out there who can relate to my life.

January 24, 2010 - I met this guy online who inspired me to write/blog again. To Sal, thank you for the inspiration. I owe you one.

I am a frustrated artist who finds refuge in bitterness and solitude. Angst is what I speak and love is what I hide. I never want to be seen naked for in nakedness there is truth and truth I am afraid of. Reality never seems to be fair, life in fact is iniquitous.

I like to put up a facade like a masked man in a party. I like to exude and air of mystery and fear. For in fear I earn respect and respect I treasure.

I like to play God once in a while, controlling the people who surround me. I love to twist emotions and bring out the insides.

I have found love but it left me suddenly for reasons until now I do not understand. He pierced right through everything that is me and left a broken arrow in my heart. But I let that happen because I loved him so sincerely. If there was a time I really loved someone, it would be that time. He rocked my world; sadly, he rocked me to my death.
