Finkaloo



Since we are on the subject of that pink diary,  I rummaged it under piles of memento in my mahiwagang baul-sa-tuktok ng closetta  this morning.  It's time to sashay down the catwalk and look back at once was, my futile attempt to write non-fiction. Contrary to my previous claims that it was pink, the front cover is actually lemon chiffon. It's the pages that make up the diary that are printed pink.

Reasons for having that journal has already escaped me. One could even dispute whether it was a gift from my mom or was given to me by another person. (who had foreseen the future)  But now that its contents are for my eyes to see, let me share with everyone some passage written when I used to play with my sister's Barbie Dolls and Sailormoon was my true idol.

Dear Diary,

Birthday ni Jonas ngayon  Masaya pero kanina napakalungkot dahil hindi kumpleto ang linggo ko hindi ko napanood ang Ultraman A. (Ace) Sa palagay ko ay matatagalan pa ako bago mapanood iyon gabi na ng umuwi kami kaya pagod na pagod ako...

Goodnight

I got bored with writing after several entries. However, a few years later, the diary re-emerged with a new purpose. (Notice the lack of periods? My apologies, the passages were written verbatim.)


the crescent moon and the sword must have reminded you of a superhero


Big 7 Dreams
Date Unknown


We are riding in a car w/ Ninang, (Favorite Aunt) Wiki, (cousin) and Banjo (Favorite Aunt's son)  Suddenly I saw a Mushroom cloud of Smoke like a Nuclear Explosion probably an Explosion, and then it came near to us and our car rolled I became unconscious Suddenly a brilliant light appeared it was foreign rescuers I think one of them is a Japanese Lady when I saw the Scenery it is very eerie like a swampy place. I remembered a dialogue "Bakit naging ganito ang Hitsura dito?"...


So there. Before that diary was prehistory and it would take my archeologist self ages before I could decipher the sentences in my writing composition. (if by some stroke of luck I could find that book)
