channeling carrie: my book reviews on Mega Magazine's feb ish

eto naman bilhin niyo hehe. yet another article already out.


this time, it's about books. a writer friend of mine, who turned out to be on the editorial team, recruited me to be their regular book reviewer. new year, new gig, so i said what the hey, taraley!

and here it is na nga. my first attempt at reviewing books for them started in this month's issue, which is accidentally their 16th anniversary issue pala. great timing. bakit kaya tuwing naju-join ako sa isang endeavor e tumatapat ako sa anniv nito? strangeness lang.

sorry hindi pa updated ang website nila kaya i don't think you can see all articles online.

don't be fooled by the covers. i almost was. when i was at the grocery a few days ago, i saw an issue and thought of buying one na, kasi ang tagal dumating nung compli copy ko. but when i saw who was on the cover, lo and behold, buti na lang di ko binili. ayoko ng souvenir na yun noh, kahit pang-folio ko siya. ay basta.

this feb ish kasi came out in 10 different covers but one content lang, featuring 16 fashionable ladies chenelyn daw or something. take turns sa each cover baga. when i saw the compli copy, keri ko yung nasa cover somewhat: si bianca gonzalez. although mas bet ko yung ibang covers. sana yung si iza calzado na lang, or si bea alonzo. these two photograph well. i also like what they did to ruffa gutierrez and tweety de leon, although sobrang overexposed na kasi sila for my taste. at saka si tweety reminds me of a dear friend's ex, na naging slight ex from hell hehe. ching! so wa na. oks din yung kay anne curtis. ang senswal ng batang ire ay, pero sa media lang. nakita ko to minsan sa personal, parang anorexic. ang weird. sana kumain siya ng husto.

wait for next month's ish. mas exciting. ching! :P

it's just funny because i just did a semi-semi-marathon of SEX AND THE CITY last weekend (para ma-distract sa kabagotan sa waiting for globe chenes) and nag-swak siya sa season kung saan carrie was starting a new life. actually, all women were starting new lives at that point, at isa sa changes ni carrie ay ang pagsusulat sa -- tanaaan -- vogue magazine hehe. kaya relate ang lola mo hane? in experience lang naman. may parallelisms hehe.

nakakatawa rin kasi when she was undergoing these changes, she was 35. i'm turning 35 this year and i have been muni-muni-ing the same things she's been thinking about. again, parallelisms.

overload minsan manood ng show na to. after one ep kasi, i'd like to ruminate on the things that happened and all. saka relate ako sa writing mode ever niya hehe. we share a lot of writing habits. di ko na lang idi-divulge kung ano hehe pero tuwing makikita ko siya, natatawa ako hehehe. la lang.

man, i can't wait to see what they did with the movie version of this. now that i have to watch! sino sasama? taralets.

thanks for the comment misanthrope. yeah, i remember one of your profs (ruth) discussing how she didn't like dogeaters as well. pero binigyan naman niya ko ng related hagedorn materyales to help me with my book report hehehe. well, go figure...
