Purple friends

“Reming” was supposed to have to hit Metro Manila between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Friday, prompting officials to suspend classes this Thursday. [Inq7.net] [empasis mine]

November 30, 2006. Huh? I don’t see the logic there, really. Nothing quite disastrous happened in Metro Manila today. I wish they didn’t cancel classes. There are things that had to be done in school today. All I did was sleep all day.

Right now, I’m just enjoying the last few hours of running electricity before the typhoon’s strong winds pound Metro Manila and Southern Luzon. I really do hope casualties and other such tragedies and damages will be minimal. Stay safe, everyone. (Though, it’s useless saying these to you fellow privileged bourgeoisie urbanites who will simply take shelter and stay safe in the comforts of our homes anyway).

Our Documentary professor was absent for class yesterday. He’s out of the country performing production duties for a broadcasting network. He left us with individual video exercises with the PD-150 camera. I shot my exercise at the dressmaker’s shop at the Shopping Center (SC). I enjoyed it.

Oh, and I was surprised with who I bumped into at SC. It was my grade school friend, Kenji, who’s now in Ateneo, working at one of the photocopy stalls. It’s apparently part of one of their Philosophy courses, probably in recognition of their ‘bourgeoisie-ness’ that there is a need for them to immerse and reach out to the ordinary obrero. Very Atenean, indeed.

Yesterday was another purple day. Con was also wearing purple. And it was a purple jeepney that we rode to the Shopping Center.
