The Last of the Queer Halloween and other stories

5 comments
This is the team lunch last night. We all had fun especially myself where I concentrated in binging everything I could. Anyone who gave blood has the right to binge! I was still feeling drowsy and all last night but the Goldilock's cakes gave a sudden jolt of energy to my veins!

These two people in the office is our source of everyday queer fun, and last night's halloween event was an opportunity for us to show a different side. Above is our next top model Josh wearing mom's pink "Sharon Cuneta" silk pashmina with a Boracay malong turned turban. He/She is also wearing Thet's pink boots!

the costumes!

Here's our beauty from the middle east Avhen aka Raul. Because he didn't shave his beard, he had to wear this pashmina to hide it, leaving his/her eyes as the subject. In this picture, with the help of few cosmetic touches, naging babae na siya sa wakas!

Waking up one November 1 afternoon

It's been grandma's long-time tradition to cook a lot of food for All Saints Day. This is done to celebrate her fond memories of grandpa, whom I haven't met (he died 1981, I was born 1984). We Pinoys believe our departed-loved ones will pay us a visit at this special time of the year to dine and mingle with us. I had few instances where I feel his presence at home, especially when grandma was very sick the last time.
When I woke up this afternoon, I rushed to the kitchen to eat my early dinner and found myself having a special candlelight dinner: alone. Seeing all these food in the table reminded me that it was indeed "undas". I completely forgot all about it. Grandpa's presence is greatly felt: there was beer and cigarettes (his all-time faves), buko salad, tsokolate, and adobo to name a few. Ramdam kong may kasama ako kanina habang kumakain.


It was an unforgettable dining experience!
