Home >> Blah-blahs >> Welcome to my slum book

First of all, I’d like to apologize to some peeps if I haven’t been able to answer the memes they sent me, like Yuga for the books and Minette, Celia K , Toni for my choice of cookbooks. I realized that my reading list these days can fit the Hall of Shame as it is limited to internet sites and no-brainer page-turners. But I promise to answer your tags soon, as soon as I organize my bookshelf and get reading once again.

In the meantime, my high school buddies Lei and Anna Lyn sent me an email this morning which I couldn’t resist answering (not all though!) You’re right Lei, ” I know, it’s juvenile, but let’s just get on with it, shall we?” This sort of reminds me of high school when the slum book asked “What is Love? ” and we answered: “Love is a feeling that you feel when you feel a feeling that you haven’t felt before.” Hahaha. My readers may feel free to pass this on in their blogs, Friendster, emails and what-have-you…

What are you listening to right now? Office piped-in music that’s as mushy as hell
What was the last thing you ate? Haagen-Dazs strawberry ice cream

Favorite season: Summer
Hugs or kisses? Kisses
Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate
What is under your bed? Nothing. Japanese-style ang bed ko
Who is the friend you have had the longest? My highschool pals!
What did you do last night? Check on my kids’ homeworks, attend Rotary Club meeting, answer/make phone calls
What are you afraid of? The white hairs growing on my crowning glory
Plain, buttered or salted popcorn? Buttered and salted

  4. lei says:

    hey ju, do you know how “slum book” got its name? would slum be short for slumber (ie, something one does on a slumber party?) or slum as in smokey mountain slum in which case – huh? or is it “slam” with the interloping “u”

    need to know. anyone?

  5. Sharon says:

    Hi Annalyn, I am just wondering if you can tell me where you stayed when you went to Boracay. I am planning a trip there sometime soon but does not really know where to go (resort, beach, etc.) – Thanks in advance!

  6. Dr Emer says:

    Great eye-opener, Ajay.

    Just take good care of yourself and pray. You won’t end up paralyzed one day. I agree with you. It is really one of the scariest things that can happen.

  7. joyce says:

    good work on your site! ganda! kudos to Yuga as well =) teka, dun sa “Three things you want in a relationship…”, ano yung Lotsa –? hehehehe don’t have to answer dear…ako rin, gusto ko rin ng Lotsa — hihihi

  8. Jet says:

    Everything here looks so subdued and calm, with a touch of the mysterious. I like it.

    Hey Ajay, tagal kong hindi nadalaw. Still trying to go back to my blogging and bloghopping routine and well, I hope I’d really have the time to do it.

    Anyway, inggit ako sa week mo next week. Haven’t really gone ‘just chilling out’ in a long, long time. Sigh!

  9. thess says:

    Ajay, lend me a piece of yer butt? he he…have a great weekend dear…and btw, tnx for visiting my foodieblog 😉

  10. Annalyn says:

    Thanks for dropping by, everyone..

    Lei, honestly I don’t know where slum book got its name, couldn’t even think of a pun for one, hehe

    Sharon, I stayed at the Red Coconut Beach Hotel. You can check the website at http://www.redcoconut.com.ph

    Dr. Emer, for people like us who are very active, the thought of being paralyzed is something that’s scary indeed

    Hahaha! Loka-loka ka Joyce..:)

    Jet, hope you get active in blogging again and that you’re coping well with your new life in Calif. Don’t worry, will try to post updates of my travels here..

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend too, Thess…

  12. Ajay says:

    Hi Toni! Unfortunately, slum books ~ like love letters ~ have been rendered anachronistic by this high-tech age.

    Good to know that we have a few things in common. Add to that our love for cooking:)
