Please don’t think that this entry is yet again about my boyfriend. And no, please do not think, too, that this blog is turning into an I Love Jimmy Kim online journal because heh, I have another secret blog for that (LOL). As you know, we have been spending a lot of time together so he’s been involved in most of my activities/experiences lately. Furthermore, I really, really, REALLY just need to write about this or my head will implode.
Yesterday was like Korean appreciation day for me as I got to hang out with like 5 Koreans – and yes, that’s a lot for Kring. You see, less than 4 months ago, I HAD NO KOREAN FRIENDS. AT ALL. I was even offended by the fact that there are bajillions of them in my country and yet none of my friends had Korean friends. And now, I’m eating their food, speaking their language and over-all just being Koryanized.
If there’s one thing that you need to know when getting into a relationship with a Korean person, it’s that… Korea is the best. Keep that in mind and everything will be fine. Seriously. The boyfriend never imposed his Korean-ness to me until we started talking about the World Cup.
As the entire internet-hood probably knows, it took 20+++ years before I had my first relationship so to say that I kinda missed out on a lot is an understatement. For years I have written about unrequited love and missed chances with much angst and bitterness, until recently, when I first heard someone say “I love you” to me… genuinely.
Fine. This won’t be another cheesy entry, promise. I just want to reiterate that fact that since I missed out on a lot, I have every right to be saccharine and adorkable with my jagiya. And that I like “couple things”. You know, couple accessories, couple clothes, stuff like those. Hell, if you can even find me some cute couple underwear, send them my way kammon kammon NOW NA!!!
At the Pahiyas Festival, wearing our couple sombreros, our almost-couple red jersey shirts and eating couple sorbetes under the heat of the sun. I would’ve bitch-slapped anyone who’d approach us and ask if we’re together.
Oh and by the way, couple items are soooo not a Korean thing, contrary to popular belief. Not because you see Korean couples in Bora wearing the same goddamn striped shirts and khaki shorts doesn’t mean they invented this couple-ness phonemenon. John en Marsha had couple duster-puruntong FYI. There’s the Crisostomo Ibarra – Maria Clara couple pluma, too.
I am not here to campaign for my bets. I am not even writing this to tell you why your respective candidates suck and why mine should win. Isn’t this post a little to late for that? I really am just here to proclaim to the whole internet that I am supporting the Gordon-Bayani tandem and I will proudly cast my votes for them this May 10.
I didn’t just decide on this overnight. A couple of months ago, we actually did an episode on Talking Heads about the presidentiables, where we compared them side by side and objectively looked at their characters and credentials. The following months were all about getting as much info on them as I can and needless to say, Mr. Gordon won my heart- and mind (sorry, not an emotional voter here).
MY GUYS in a lol-worthy campaign material
