Almost there! I'm near finishing my A-Z Book Challenge! Hehehe! What a geek! 

As for my fellow bloggers, I hope na miss niyo ang mga mala nobela kong comments. Hehehe! I miss you all too! But right now I'm on the verge of something great and exciting. 

Alak, kape, notebook, fountain pen- yan ang barkada ko ngayon hanggang sa buwan ng Disyembre. Si Imelda Marcos ang laging nasa isipan ko ngayon at ang mga sapatos at "potah pumps" (term na na-Sotto ko from Nyabachoi) ng kababaihan.

Sige na! I'll see you all soon!

    1. I really miss visiting other blogs. Wala oras eh. Kailangan magsulat. writing is really one of the loneliest professions in the world. I'm not saying that I'm already a writer. But I'm almost there.

    1. No, never! Gusto kong mawala sa mundo ni Murakami! Grabe! Pero meron naman siyang mga novels na MEDYO well-grounded sa reality. Pero grabe ang galeng talaga ng mga japanese writers. I'm also planning to read George martin's books sa 2013.
