Banchetto is going green. Not with envy, though. Starting August 15th, a No Plastic Bags policy will be implemented at Banchetto sites Libis, Forum and Megatent. As a fan of paper bags and stuffing one’s face with food, this is cause for celebration for me. I know it’s funny that a guy who smokes a lot deems himself a strong supporter of the environment, but I am honestly happy that more places are implementing the No Plastic Bags policy.
I first encountered this policy in Los Baņos, Laguna several months ago. I was buying beer from 7-11 and I remember being baffled by 7-11 employees insisting that I put a bunch of heavy Red Horse bottles inside a paper bag. I was told that the lovely town at the foot of Mt. Makiling has started a campaign against plastic bags. And that just brought a smile to my wasted face.
Cervical cancer is a bitch. The best way to slap that bitch in the face is through information. Whether you’re a chick or a dude, cervical cancer can ruin your life if you are not well-informed. All of us, chicks and dudes alike, need to arm ourselves with the Mighty Gauntlet of Cervical Cancer Awareness to protect our way of life from this bitch.
The Tour of Hope 2011, headed by Bravehearts, aims to spread awareness about cervical cancer by having bad-ass bikers ride through 500 kilometers in 5 days. The journey begins in Manila and ends in Laoag. Throughout the 5-day ride, Bravehearts and the participating bikers aim to raise funds for cervical cancer prevention vaccination drives and seminars.
Greetings, future Cobra slaves!
I, Cobra Commander, demand that you cease killing this planet at once! Your collective inefficient and indulgent lifestyle is promoting climate change, slowly poisoning Earth. This will not stand! You need to start cleaning up your act. You can start at home or at your pathetic workplace. Ask your so-called “leaders” to take action. Do little things that will pay dividends in the future. Our future (as master and slaves). There are plenty of resources online that can give you ideas on how to live Green. Take a break from YouTube videos of dudes smashing their balls with baseball bats for a couple of hours and start researching on how you can help, you lazy assbags.
My birthday is tomorrow, September 29th. I don’t really feel like celebrating it because, if you haven’t heard, we’re in a state of calamity right now because of Tropical Storm Ketsana (Ondoy). I’m writing this wish list as an appeal to you, my readers. I know there’s not a lot of you, but I know there’s enough of you out there to make this worth writing.
1. For those of you outside the Philippines, Filipino or not, please send help via PayPal or credit card by going to Philippineaid.com. It’s a great initiative from Mike Villar, which I vouch for along with several of my fellow bloggers.
2. For those of you in the country, check out the different ways that you can help. Karen Ang has compiled a list of institutions and locations where you can send donations. Financial support is great, but it would be awesome if you can also give clothes, food, water and other necessities. You can also volunteer to repackage relief goods and, if you’re able, distribute it to the victims.
I know, I know. Thanksgiving is a month away and we don’t officially celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in the Philippines, but what the hell. This year, Blog Action Day (with the theme Poverty) is my Thanksgiving Day. For Blog Action Day 2008, I’d like to talk about me being unaware of how blessed I am living a very comfortable life. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be like my Blog Action Day post from last year. I’ll try not be retarded.
I know I complain about the most trivial stuff, and I guess this is the perfect time to fully acknowledge that pathetic truth. I have a lot to be thankful for in terms of material belongings and awesome Internet Age conveniences.
I’m thankful for having a roof over my head. A soft bed under my body. A healthy family around me.
I’m thankful for gas for my car. Food for my stomach. Beer for my bleeding heart.
