– As time goes by, I hope no one is seriously offended by me.
– I spend the days drugged with painkillers (NSAIDs only) until I get my tooth pulled. Is it just me, or are generic mefenamic acid less potent than branded ones?
– I miss old place names in the Philippines. Places like Parang (Marikina), Malaria (Caloocan) and Trabajo (somewhere in Manila) are slowly being replaced by meaningless words like Eastwood, Project 4, and names of people who do not lend history and meaning to streets which they rename.
What do the following places originally mean?
1. Stop and Shop
2. Sta. Mesa (Santang may apat na paa?)
3. Tungkong Mangga
