Dear Money


Dear Money,

Our relationship was never easy. You say, yes. I say no. I say stay. You say I go.

They say Money talks. It’s true. But we never had a decent conversation but most of the time; the only dialogue you had with me is when you say good bye.



Why can’t you stay in my account the way you linger in Yuchengco’s vaults and Marcos’s Swiss bank accounts? I never questioned your infidelity. I don’t even ask you to be faithful only to me. I have no power over you. I just wish that you would bless me with your graces to become part of your roster of prominent lovers. 

There seems to be some falsehood in the law of mutual exchanges. I gave you my love. I love you so much that I had to let myself be exploited, humiliated, and ridiculed. I thought you were ruled by that law. But then, who am I compared to Branson or Trump? You made them big time. How about me? Why won’t you love me back?

I’m a fool to love you. But you’re like drugs. I can never get over you. I need you. I want you. I desire you.

One day, when Fate would turn everything upside down. You will crawl back to me, fill not only my one and only bank account, but my vaults too.

Remember that.


Yours truly.


T.G.

  1. Oh money, bakit nga ba? Please love Tripster back so he can share his blessings to us :)

    We have the same sentiments about money, I'm addicted to it too, but I seem to be allergic to it as well, I keep spending it for some reason. :)

    1. For once we'd like to talk about money like we're f*cking filthy rich, but we talk about it like desperate broke business men nearing bankruptcy and prison.

  12. Hi! Im Fran, a spanish male fashion blogger. Maybe you like my style and want to follow me

    1. Hi I'm Tripster! I'm an anomalous Filipino-Martian. I violate all precepts of fashion like I'm committing a heinous crime and crimes against humanity.

      I kind of despise fashion bloggers, except for The Chic Styler because he's my friend.

      Anyways, I saw your pics. You asked me if I like your style, well, what can I say? Will I ever like skimpy pants that squeeze my ass and balls, shirts for anorexic guys, and other items considered necessities by the frivolous?

      Did you even read my post? I'm all haggard for money, do you think I would even have the time and energy and interest to look at the mirror and say, "Oh shit, I need to buy a leather bag from Zara for this outfit. FOrget about the car insurance, tax, and freakin' house."

      Seriously?

      Ok, I'd like to be a fashionista too in a time when many are jobless, dying, and starving to death. I'd like to burn some euros to transform myself as the ultimate metrosexual/gay/bisexual/confused/semi-drag queen.

      But don't worry, I'll follow you. You in desperate need of adoration and attention, like all bloggers are, right?

      I'll be your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me!

  14. I have a problem budgeting my salary, so what I do is, I don't leave the house during weekends. I only do so when I really have to (re: the monthly trip to the barbershop, the twice a week trip to the laundry shop, etc.) It seems to be working. My credit card bill this month is down to P650. I feel good.
