We had one of our “pirata” Quiapo escapades yesterday (yes, we support piracy. baaad). While looking for a DVD to buy, Caloy stumbled upon this:

I checked out Jentrix’s (Mirmo’s older brother) Friendster profile yesterday. Wala lang. Just want to check out how they’re doing. Anyway, seems like they’re enjoying Norway. Good for them. ๐Ÿ™‚
