Postscript to Cagbalite: Note of a native son, and podcast

Hi, I'm a native of Mauban and I practically grew up there. I read your article in PDI, the correct spelling is Cagbalete, however it is pronounced as 'kag-ba-li-ti.' Thank you for featuring this small island in our hometown, it is truly an undiscovered paradise. That island was our 'picnic' (as Maubanin call for swimming party) place when I was in high school, particularly the Pansacola Beach. The family name of your photographer, Alquiros, is familiar with me, I had a schoolmate named Roby Alquiros.

Thanks and God Bless you!

Riyadh, KSA

PLUS: “We did make a podcast, while sundry salagubang and the occasional bat whizzed by us and made jittery me jump up in fright every time. Watch out for it.” So I wrote. Well, here it is--perhaps the most relaxed podcast we've done, ever. As I told Migs, if our last gabfest was Regine Velasquez, this was more... uhm, Sitti?

hmph! naunahan na kami sa guesting! :-(si jay, nakakatuwa magtanong. intelihente ang language pero tunog-bata. parang batang nanghihingi ng wisdom sa mga lola nyang nagngangalang Fabcasters.

re: sacrifice in the name of love--- kaya nga diba, we don't get in a relationshp because it will make us whole, but because we are whole enough that we are able to share. one only loses a part of himself when he doesn't know who he reaaly is, what he wants, what he is willing to give, and what he wants to preserve.

i agree with most of your responses to the anxieties question. happiness doesn't is not a question of circumstances, but how one, gay or not, is able to view them. what one refers to as lonesomeness is single-blessedness to another.

"My happiness doesn't depend on others. I make my own person" ganyan dapat! wagi ka jan, AJ! at nakisama ako sa standing ovation para sa yo jan.

joel: ang suplado nung "Do you make friends in the bathhouse?" "Nooo!" LOL.

"common anxieties ...not inevitable, not that bad, not necessarily for gay men." truth! masyado lang tayong self-flagellating in general. drama queens, indeed!

shet!!! beer on the beach, under the stars on a good friday with friends. panalo!

e kumusta naman, joel, yung pinu-push mo na malibugan si gibbs sa resort boys? pasaway! LOL.

ako, MGG, pwedeng mag-substitute sa counselling sa kanila when u're busy. basta bring a bottle of wine.

gibbs: bodily fluids to bodily fluids... hindi pwede! play safe! always!

enjoyed the episode immensely, Fabcasters! ang saya nyo.. pero i'm sure mas masaya ang episode pag kami ang nag-guest! (ipilit?!?!?!)
