Dear Elliot Stabler

You've been in SVU for 12 long years, and we've all seen you catch pervs and rapists, get shot, grill suspects in interrogation, get stabbed with a pen, make out with Dani Beck, struggle with your marriage, go undercover numerous times, turn women to lifeless goo with your blue eyes, bare your chest (much to your female fans' delight), and constantly flirt with Olivia Benson without even trying. I admit that you're not one of my favorites at first, but your stubbornness and temper grew on me and you're a staple in the 1-6 that I can't imagine not seeing your manly man figure walking down the hall with your partner. I am sad to hear that I won't see you next season. I will miss the badass-ness you bring to the show, and of course, it won't be the same without that yummy tension between you and Benson. I do not want to see you go, but such is life. The best of luck to you.

Ampogi-pogi, syet.

And to the producers, he BETTER have a graceful exit. Don't go killing him off or something, or I will be really pissed.

Domino's Pizza El Molito Branch Grand Opening

Say hello to my first ever food event post. I’m not really sure how to go about this, so please bear with me.

Last May 10, I was invited to the grand opening of Domino’s Pizza in the El Molito Building, Alabang, Muntinlupa. To be honest, I thought Domino’s had packed their bags and closed up shop since it’s been a while since I saw an actual store. So yeah, it looks like they’re back and I must say the food has gotten better.

Off Into The Sunset

I was on my way home from the grand opening of Domino's Pizza El Molito Branch (which I will post before the work week ends) when I saw this in front of me.

Along Alabang-Zapote Road

Now I don't really experience that much traffic on my way home from work (unlike my mom and younger sister) since my "office" is just fifteen minutes away. I am spared from the agony of wanting to get home and throwing yourself on the bed but you can't because you're stuck in a car full of strangers, and the guy beside you smells like burned onions. I consider myself lucky for landing a job that's close to my house, but of course I need to go out into the world every once in a while and make my presence known. It's hard to see a silver lining in a traffic jam when you're inhaling exhaust smoke and your ass is hurting after hours of sitting on a car seat that can put a steel park bench to shame, but sometime there are things that made you wish that the cars would stop moving. This here is an example of such a thing.

I stared in awe for a moment before hitting the brakes - I almost crashed into the car in front of me - and took the opportunity to grab my camera from the backseat when I got to a stop light. I held my camera and took shots until I had to turn right at Concha Cruz, where I got stuck for a couple of minutes because some idiot thought he could get in without a sticker.

Yes, it's hard to be optimistic when you're stuck in traffic. But if I were to see something like this or maybe more magnificent than this, then I wouldn't mind staying put.

Curtain Call: Defending The Caveman

Last Thursday, I dragged my best friend out to watch Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman at the RCBC Plaza in Makati.
