I have met one of my idols and supercrush in the blogworld last 02.07.2015!
Mr. Tripster Guy!
I tried not to be late, but I was late for an hour. Good thing this guy knows how to entertain himself. Instead of that ice cream parlor as rendezvous, I found him in a bookstore.
He is far from the buddha figure in his profile photo. Much as I want to post his photo, I was given very strict instruction not to post any evidence of his existence.
Well, ice cream then after a couple of hours, coffee fueled our conversations. We had non-stop conversations just about anything. But that topics that really made him shift more comfortably on his seat are books, reading, writing and politics, the Marcoses--- Imelda in particular. His passion about politics is very evident that I learned so much about the Philippine political systems and issues. He lives in another country but is way more informed about the Philippine politics that I do! I wish I can ask more questions but the four hours was not enough. I wish we had more time. Sobrang bitin!
In almost all meet ups like this, it's always like time flies so fast! Soooooo fast! I am just always so grateful for them taking time to meet in person. I am so glad I get to read his blogs and definitely honored to meet him in person, too! The aloof and suplado-type of writer can be not-so-forever-anonymous pala. We seem to jive at almost everything including boys. Hahaha.
Who doesn't love Nutella?! He gave me a Nutella spread as pasalubong. I didn't bring anything for him as I had no idea what could fit his liking and interest. Good thing, I have a filipino-authored novel I think I will never take time to read and he is the best person to have it. We met again the following day so I can give it to him and let him write on my little black notebook of memories.
When we parted ways bid our goodbyes and made that final beso-beso, I turned my back with mixed feelings. Overflowing happiness, there's tons of kiligs and a bit of panghihinayang. This guy, is the type of guy I would fall for. Only that, it can never ever be. How could I fall for a guy who happens to like guys as well? If not, I seem to have an affnity with the bad guys. What's wrong with me? Lol! Of course, nothing's wrong. The universe just tells me to wait. Hehehehe..
