Nakakalungkot pagmasdan ang larawang ito nina Pilar at Tony. Kung kailan pa ti=umanda si Tony, saka pa umabot sa isang crisis na nauwi sa tragedy. I'll be honest with you, napaluha ako sa larawang ito. I was suddenly reminded of my own parents and other lovedones who had passed on. Nakakalungkot. Lalo na kung titingnan mo na parang napakasaya nila. Such a tragedy, indeed.

Madalas akong dumalaw doon sa blogg ni Randy dahil maraming mga mapangmatang mga tao na hihiyain ka sa harap ng lahat. But I guess, one has just to face the music and explain his side. You haven't been roaming the city of Manila and Quezon City lately. Though I enjoyed the tattoo guys in Tondo. Ang tapang mo, siguro, hindi ako makakapunta doon. Bilib ako sa iyo.
