iisa pa lamang

Posted in Uncategorized on October 12, 2008 by armedlittleboy

I admit it. i have been bitten by the Iisa pa lamang bug. try as i might, i just could not resist those campy lines.

for those in the dark, Iisa pa lamang is a drama series in ABS CBN starring Claudine, Gabby, and Diether. Also includes Cherry Pie Picache and Angelica Panganiban.

Here are the best campy lines from the most funny drama series ever:

1. Cherry Pie to Susan Roces: Bakit mo pinamimigay ang Amadesto (the name of the contested hacienda)? Gusto mo bang palitan si Rosa Rosal? Ano ka NGO?

2. Swimming pool scene where claudine is in a two-piece and wearing at least a kilo of diamonds

Angelica: Mag sswimming ka na nga lang naka-diamonds ka pa

Claudine: Syempre, diamonds are forever, like me!

3. Caludine coming home and seeing Cherry Pie in her living room

Claudine: Anong ginagawa mo dito? Pagod ako. Huwag kang loloko-loko. Baka gusto mo hampasin kita nitong bag kong mas mahal pa sa’yo

4. Angelica confronting Claudine

Angelica: …. Pareho na tayong nasasadlak ngayon. damn you. damn me. Karma’s a bitch, and so are we

Follow-up line. ibang scene. diether and angelica

Diether: bakit ba ang hilig-hilig mong sabihin na karma’s a bitch? ayan na out-bitch ka na, na out-karma ka pa

5. Cherry Pie and Susan Roces arguing once again

Cherry Pie: dumi ka lang sa paningin ko Aura (susan’s name)

Susan: tandaan mo isadora, ang duming ito ang pupuwing syo

Cherry Pie: eh di magshshades ako

6. Cherry Pie when her money is running out leaving her in poverty

Cherry Pie: My god, ganito pala ang feeling ng hampas lupa. kakaloka

7. Scene where the househelp of Cherry Pie is leaving her

Cherry Pie: Ano na namang gimik to ha?

Manang: Mam, aalis na rin po ako dito… ilang buwan na ding hindi niyo po ako sinesweldohan eh

Cherry Pie: Aba! ang kapal ng mukha mo, wala kang utang na loob.. ha? so pano? pera-pera nalang, hindi mo ba naisip na kinuha kita galing sa bundok, binihisan at nakatikim ng CORNED BEEF dahil sa akin

8. Claudine and Angelica scene. Claudine is going out on a date with Diether, Angelica’s ex-husband

Claudine: how do i look (with matching smirk)?

Angelica: you look like a dirty whore who’s about to do her job

9. Claudine and Angelica again

Claudine: single and gorgeous naman ako at anulled and fabulous naman si Miguel

10. Cherry pie when she pushed Susan Roces making Susan fall down the steps. Susan unconscious and bleeding.

Cherry Pie: Aura? Aura! hoy wag mo nga kong artehan dyan, di naman ganun kataas ang hagdan mo ah

(a novel by lualhati bautista, adapted into film by chito rono. acted by vilma santos and ariel rivera.)

ariel: kumusta ka ba talaga? I mean, masaya ka ba sa buhay mo?

vilma: minsan

ariel: bakit minsan lang? bakit hindi lagi?

vilma: hindi maganda yung lagi. dapat minsan malungkot ka rin. para mas magkaroon ng kahulugan yung minsan na masaya ka.

when i grow up

Posted in Uncategorized on October 7, 2008 by armedlittleboy

(from some forgotten source)

when i grow up, i wonder if people will be more afraid to cry than they are to die. will i be able to see a rainbow in a small-filled sky. will there be any trees left, if not how will the planet survive. will there be a website at when i grow up, if i got bored and had nothing to do and me and my son built a canoe and water that was once blue would be so polluted it would give us the flu. will a thousand dollars be enough for a shoe. will i have to be like you, letting money make the decision for everything that i do. when i grow up, will the existence of dolphins and whales just be a story i tell, starting with once upon a time and ending with where did we fail? will adults be the hammer and nail. will schools be next door to jails. will the truth be illegal for sale. when i grow up, will people be on the news for anything besides killing. will those drug dealers still be outside my building. will they ever learn how to love or are they still afraid of the feeling. will tv and music videos still raise america’s children. will students go home from school in a bullet proof bus. what if children had no one to trust, that would hurt me so much and i just want to be happy, when i grow up.

Kay Mariang Makiling

Nagpaalam noon ang nanay.
hindi ipinaalam kung saan siya pupunta.
anong pook ang maari niyang puntahan
upang di na magbalik?
anong pook ang maari niya?
nagkampo kami ni tatay sa Makiling.
inalala ang kwento ng diwatang
naglaho sa panglaw ng sariling panaghoy.
‘hindi na siya babalik’ sabi ni tatay.
pag-uwi, tinanaw ko ang bundok,
at totoo, mas maganda itong tignan
sa malayo: hindi matitinag, buo.
