My mother told me a few hours ago that one of our childhood neighbors (as in the guy beside our house) was diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer. I don't have the specifics but what I do know is that the man is in his 50s and he's a father of four. Like everyone in my family, I'm shocked. It's too close to home and cancer is no laughing matter. I hate hearing news like this.
What annoys me the most however is that my mom is using this "revelation" as ammunition to make me stop smoking… she's now on a higher horse more than ever. I know she's right… let's face it, I've been smoking for at least 10 years. Look the term "chain smoker" on the dictionary and you'll see my fugly mug on it.
I want to stop… and I will!
Oh help me god.
PS. Big request to my readers in Singapore! I know it's late now but will someone
please take a photo (or a scan) of today's Straits Times (Sunday Times). I got an amazing mention on their article about Asian Bloggers called "Asia's Blog Stars". I have the digital copy here but it's not the same as taking a photo of it. I need it for my portfolio so when I turn 75, I'll show it to my adopted children's children and tell them "holy shit y'all when I was young, I was thin and at one point I was fucking famous". Hahah! Just kidding. If you're generous enough (hah), send it to me by post. Bryanboy, MCPO Box 2044, Makati City, MM 1250 Philippines. Thanks guys and I love you all!
PPSS. The photo looks absolutely familiar… maybe they "borrowed" from Style.com? ROFLMAO Hmm. Y'all should've contacted me for a better photo. Hahaha! Thanks again for the lovely mention!
