I'm Getting Married...


Not anytime soon though. But now that I have your attention, please take a look at some of the comic sets I have on sale (seriously, I need the money). These are from my own personal collection and have been kept in pristine condition (a lot of these I've read only once) since the day they were purchased. All comics come in their own plastic with backing board. I'm willing to meet buyers in the Makati, Mandaluyong, and Ortigas areas. Cash on delivery. G-Cash payments will also be accepted. ;)

You can download the complete PDF list through this link.

Just send me a message for any questions. If you're looking for anything not on the list, let me know anyway. You never know, I just might have it in my stash.


P.S. I'd appreciate it if you could let your other friends who might be interested know about this, too (the comics, not the "getting married" part).

Keep Those 80's Properties Coming!

For a better part of my childhood, I thought I wanted to be Michael Knight. Turns out, what I really wanted to be was a Knight Rider -- not a Michael Knight -- just a driver, with my very own KITT (short for "Knight Industries Two Thousand").

I still vividly remember having my photo taken while sitting inside the real-life KITT (could've been a replica in hindsight) in Universal Studios and thinking how great it would be to go home with this really smart car, who could talk to you and jump over obstacles with his "Turbo Boost".

So a new KITT (and what a sexy car it is) is slated to debut on the big screen in 2008. Could a new Michael Knight be in tow (assuming it's still him)? I'll be damned if it's still "The Hoff", though I'm quite sure he'll have a cameo at the very least.

    I Almost Ran Over Somebody Today...

    ...motorcycle driver.

    He fell off his bike, right in front of my car's path! Just stepped on the brakes in the nick of time (burned-off a good few inches from my tires in the process). By the time my car was at a full stop, the guy's head was this close (*forms estimate of an inch and a half with hand*) to my front bumper. FREAKIN' SCARY!!!

    You know why the guy fell off his motorcycle? He ran into a pedestrian, who, for some reason, panicked at the sight of the incoming bike and patintero-ed (I have know other way to describe it) with it in the middle of the damn road. Do you know when two people coming from opposite directions walk into each other and side-step in the same direction for a few times before the other decides to give way (i.e. tarantanggo)? Think of that, but replace "two people" with "motorcycle driver and dumb-ass pedestrian".

    What a way to start my day.


    Discover the Work You Were Born to Do

    This is probably the only career-related article I have read that has struck a nerve as hard as it has. James Gonyea, contributing writer from Monster.com, writes:

    "So you've been hearing that voice again, the one that says you're not doing what you were born to do. That may be true, but how do you figure out what you should be doing?"
    "How?" indeed.

    A lot of us have tried to answer this for the longest time, but we never really managed to arrive at an acceptable answer (which is probably why most of us are where right now career-wise). Fortunately, this article helps you do just that (trust me, it does). Read on and be enlightened:

    "To begin answering this question, examine whether your current career path matches your core interests, beliefs, values, needs and skills. Professional career counselors usually undertake this strategy when attempting to help clients identify appropriate career directions.

    "Here's what I ask clients to help them find their core. Ask yourself these questions, and record your answers:

    1. What subjects do you most enjoy reading about?
    2. What television or radio programs do you most enjoy?
    3. What are your favorite types of movies?
    4. What are your favorite hobbies or pastimes?
    5. What type of volunteer activities do you prefer?
    6. What subjects do you enjoy discussing with friends?
    7. What subjects come to mind when you daydream?
    8. What have been your favorite jobs?
    9. What were your favorite school subjects?
    10. What are your pet peeves?
    11. If you doodle, what do you often draw?
    12. If you ran the world, what changes would you make?
    13. If you won a million bucks, what would you do with it?
    14. Who are your favorite kinds of people?
    15. How would you like to be remembered after your death?
    16. What are your favorite toys?
    17. How would you describe your political beliefs?
    18. Who do you most admire in life and why?
    19. What tasks have brought you the most success?
    20. What tasks do you think you could do well that you haven't yet done?
    "Examine your answers. Do you see a certain behavior or belief in more than one aspect of your life? What information do you see repeated that seems to reveal a behavior pattern? What are your long-lasting interests?

    "Using this information, paint a self-portrait by completing the following statements:

    • I am mainly interested in…
    • I believe most in…
    • I most value…
    • For a good life, I feel I need…
    • I can do the following well…
    "Now ask yourself if your current job helps you achieve these five statements. If it does, you're probably in the right career. Chances are, however, that the nagging voice means your current career is not satisfying your core features. If this is the case, then it's time to find a better fit."
