Jologsly Yours. Yeah right!
Look at that!
Eeeew! Yuck!
Now what?!

I left home for work and I didn’t notice that my pants were folded unevenly. One is shorter than the other. I tried to fix them in the office but I really can’t make them even.

I have so many tasks to do so I just folded it like that temporarily. But I forgot that it was folded that way so I walked in and out the office on that cool style. Would you please help me fold it correctly?

This is one of my favorite shirts now. I just love it’s appeal. I don’t think I’d miss the next party around if another Google shirt will be raffled out.

Is this it? I can’t believe!

Google on my Desk

Most of you, for sure, do not know my real name. You call me ‘Ash’, but you don’t really know why ‘Ash’?

In this post, I will be revealing what ‘Ash’ is all about. You’ll know different characteristics of that name and why in the world I call myself ‘Ash’. Though I knew it from the start, I didn’t care if people mis-pronounced it as ‘A$$‘. And I also knew it that it’s not good to hear it when prefixed with ‘nice’. So I put ‘mr’, to totally make me ‘mr nice a$$‘.

What’s in that name is totally uncovered yet. Though, I already attempted to reveal it many times to let the world know about it.

My name is Aldrin Escalona Cantos. It has no brillance in it. Just a plain ordinary name.

As much as I could, I hesitated typing posts that relates to ‘Jologs‘ before. But now that I have read 3 consecutive posts that connect to jologs, I think I should explain as well with my own words. Am I Jologs? Are you?

I was bloghopping a while back and I went through Ade’s post. After I read and laughed, I went ahead to Sexy Mom’s article which coincidentally tackles about jologs as well. And because it has a trackback to The Man Blog, I also went through it. It was so ironical. 3 posts straight made me ask myself. Am I jologs?

I hear this word everywhere I go. It started back in the late 90’s I think. It has different meanings to different people but I always understand it according to the way they use it. When somebody passes along in a very colorful attire, I hear it. When someone sings an old and unknown song, I hear it. When someone knows a movie which is unknown to most people, I hear it. When someone knows an actor/actress from the 80’s, I hear it. When there’s new kind of mushy tagalog movie, I also hear it.

Now, I understand it. Anything that a person don’t like, is Jologs to that person. Anything I want to call Jologs is Jologs.

In 2002, a movie called Jologs was shown in the Philippines. It was then that teen movies were a hit to the masses. (Gimmick, TGIS) It was a movie with different stories of different characters but in many scenes they meet each other but they are unaware of each others stories. I hope you get what I mean. I have never actually seen this movie but I am looking forward to see it soon.

I heard from many that the movie $***s. But I think they just don’t know how to connect each scene. I want to see it because I believe it’s nice to see it. Not that I am jologs.

I sometime’s wonder, Jologs might have won Oscar awards. Have you seen Crash and Babel? How about Love Actually?

UPDATES: Attaching a picture as requested.

From right: Dera, Abby, Ryan, Paulo, Joseph, Gia, Jhude, Leah (my wife), Me and May.

I did a special cooking session last night by myself :). I cooked Bulanglang, and it’s not very successfull. I used to cook that recipe during my grade school days and I don’t know why I forgot how to cook it perfectly. Besides, I lack some ingredients.

I was very excited to cook and I want to impress my wife. Did I, honey? Maybe next time I could perfect it ‘again’. Next time. BTW, it’s our lunch meal today.

UPDATE:

Honey has her thoughts and rewards to my recipe. She also revealed the truth on her post.

Please welcome her back to the blogging world. I love you Honey!
