my malaysian-chinese friend eric thought as his first impression of me that i butter my bread along the runways of manila’s fashion thoroughfare. actually that’s close enough: i’m an accountant slash graduate student on a.w.o.l. of unprecedented sense of style with a humble persona to match.
love has nothing to do with marriage; and so is eric’s assessment of me with this post. i’m just bidding to pull-in everyone with sheer wit and charm to this copy-pasted entry.
