BELO OR CALAYAN

Every time I scan my high school photo album, I laugh at myself. After 19 years my best friend in high school and I had a chance to bond each other, only the two of us.

We used to see each other during special occasions like classmates' birthday, wedding, fiesta, etc. We exchange forwarded sms messages. We are both busy in our own work. He is working in local Kapuso network and I am a loyal Kapamilya. The last time we met was when I joined them during our classmate's fiesta. Since I am complaining abut stress and tiredness, he recommended me to have a spa session. And yes we did and had bonding with each other. We ate and talk about our own life. He was the one who do most of the talking-about-lovelife.



























Harry is one of my best friends since high school days. When I checked some of our high school photos, I can't stop stop myself laughing. I compared our old photos to our latest photos. Looking at our first year high school photos, I can see that so many things changed in almost 19 years from now...our physical look, the flow of trends, the way we enjoy life. But I am happy to know that he is still the same person I know. He's still charming! And thinking of it, makes me smile.







Meet my h.s. bestfriend, Harry.

















I even wonder why other people afraid or ashamed to accept the reality. I remembered the line of Penshoppe commercial, the time that Ryan Agoncillo was one of its models: "Be true, be yourself". The truth hurts, but you should not be affected and don't let yourself to cry. Be happy of what you are, accept your looks. You have a choice to do, maintain, improve or makeover it. Natatawa na lang ako sa mga latest issue ngayon.

I can even say: If you want to look like me, go to Calayan. If you want to look like Harry, go to Belo. Haha. I have no time to cry about the issue of my real look especially when the person whose talking has a fake beauty. And I don't need to cry to catch the sympathy of the public. I just double my strength na lang. Haha.

Enjoy life, watch a movie. Maybe it will change your life.

Jeanny: Ako payat rin nun. Walang nag expect na tataba ako kahit sarili ko. hehehe. Ano ka pa that's the result of progress. hehehe

REDLAN said...

RJ: Oo nga pinatay si Rustom Padilla. Tsk tsk tsk. Hindi lubos matanggap ni Ricky reyes na ang crush niya nun kadugo niya. hakhak. Tapos si Vice ganda hindi matanggap na may lalagpas sa kanya. joke lang. isa lang ang masasabi ko. Enjoy while you are young and behave when you are old.

REDLAN said...

Dennis: Nun ayako makita at ipakita ang old pics ko. Ngayon, I find it kakatawa. Yung ako nun, better na ngayon. The memories make us smile.

REDLAN said...

Recel: Lol gwapo ka dyan. Katawa tawa nga.

REDLAN said...

Blue rose: Halos lahat tumataba kapag nag-asawa ko tumatanda. Pero meron na maintain nila ang kanilang figure no? Ako nun nahirapan magpataba. Ngayon nahirapn na akong pumayat. pero ayoko pumayat tulad ng dati kasi kalansay talaga ang hitsura ko nun.

REDLAN said...

Dong: Oo super payat.

REDLAN said...

Reena: Oo, namiss ko yung mga old good memories kapag napatingin ako sa mga old pics namin.

REDLAN said...

Lucas: Share mo, sige na. lol. Ang importante yummy ka ngayon. joke lang.

REDLAN said...

RJ: Kata-tawa kasi yung issue. Hindi ko lubos maisip pinatulan nila at pati ako. Nonsense yung magpapa apekto.

REDLAN said...

Uy okay lang sa akin kapag ako si Boy. Bakit naman ako magpapaapekto, matanda na ako kaya. May pangalan na ako, hindi fake ang hitsura ko at maganda ang love life ko. Hindi ako iiyak. Yun pala ang weakness ni Boy Abunda? hehehe

REDLAN said...

Dyanie: Napanood ko kasi. Tapos alam ko palagi ang latest chismis sa office.

REDLAN said...

Malaki talaga ang difference @ Nance. Hehehe. ewan ko kung ano ang maging hitsura ko in another 19years.

REDLAN said...
