I really don’t mind being forgotten.

   Morning came slow and quiet, breathing daylight into this yet another stranger’s bedroom. I found myself alone with a slight hangover and decided to stay in bed a little longer. The digital bedside clock read 8:06, late for my usual departure for one night stands. I must have taken too many shots from last night’s party. For many months now, my mornings usually comprised of waking up in someone else’s bed, sneaking out, and making my way home from a strange neighborhood. Every once in a while, I’d find myself in a squalid tenement apartment in a locality of dubious reputation. Sometimes I’d be surprised to wake up beside a naked man; fortunate to discover that I don’t suffer a sore behind. But just like every morning, I normally see myself out with the sole intention of keeping my anonymity.

   Today was different. The sun beat me to my game and my host was up. I looked around the room to remember who it was. To my left was the bedside table where the digital clock sat and next to it was a photo frame. I picked it up and saw a picture of a straight-haired brunette girl with dark brown eyes and light brown cheeks, smiling happily beside a dark-haired man with beautiful curly locks, caramel eyes and same healthy shade of brown as her cheeks. I couldn’t remember meeting her so I replaced the photo on the table and continued exploring the room with my eyes: two abstract paintings on the wall on this side of the room, a thick wooden door across the bed, a huge sleek wooden wardrobe with sliding doors just beside the door, another painting, and a desk full of books and neatly stacked notes and documents facing a huge window. It was probably one of the most decent places I have ever crashed into.

   Outside, the sky was blue with fine cottony strips of clouds. I decided to take a look and realized that my clothes were missing. I searched under the bed and sheets to no avail. Then I noticed a folded blue towel on the chair by the desk. I got out of bed and walked towards it in stark nakedness. I reached the chair and saw that the view from the window was beautiful. I could see the port, the luxury hotels, the malls, and other establishments from up there. I was in the thirty second floor of a decent condominium in the fancy part of the city and the scenery was refreshing from the usual nondescript view out of my own apartment.

   I raised my arms to stretch and rested my hands on each side of the window, quietly admiring the view and enjoying the idyllic moment. I didn’t know how long she had been standing by the door but I realized that I wasn’t alone when the smell of honey and pancakes wafted into the room. I turned towards her, still naked, and greeted her a good morning. She laughed when I bantered about her stealing my clothes. She had a nice laugh and I immediately liked her. I quickly covered myself with the ignored towel and followed her to breakfast. Her place was spacious with windows charitably letting in soft light. I saw my clothes neatly folded on the leather sofa. But she ushered my to the table before I even turned to reach them.

   Breakfast was fun. She was very jocular and insouciant and I’ve never laughed that much for so long without the help of alcohol. We were still eating breakfast and I was still sitting half naked in her dining table when it was time for lunch. I told her that I’d just take a quick shower and head right out. She reached out for my hand and asked if I wanted to stay until the New Year because she’d be all alone in this beautiful place. I asked about the guy in the photo. She said it was her boyfriend and that he was working in another country and wouldn’t be back for seven months.

   I declined her offer and went off to the shower where she followed me. The one quick shower I intended to do immediately turned into two long rounds of intercourse with warm water raining down on us. I knew she was lonely but I’d never make that mistake again of being someone else’s escape.

   Towelled and fully clothed, I knocked on her bedroom door before going in and caught her sitting on the chair, staring off into the distant horizon. I thanked her for being a good host and bid my farewell. She smiled wanly and offered to see me to the elevator. I gladly accepted and we walked in silence on the way out. When the elevator came, she awkwardly asked if she could see me again. I held the elevator door and thought for a second. She quickly followed it with a request to know my name. I let go of the elevator doors and smiled forlornly. I watched her as she waited for my answer. Then the doors closed and the elevator started its descent, never to take me back up.

A Mockery to Sexetry

notice how I’m

subtly

telling you

to

go

down

on me

and taste heaven

beyond your imagination

you envision your legs spread

wide apart as you fuel your fantasies

with furtive lewd glances

to my chest

and fat-free

well-sculpted abs

we sink deeper into debauchery

as I thrust further into you,

and we both exult

in our so-called

discreet dissoluteness.

Tokwa at Petchay
   Vegan but badly in need of protein? I have just what you need! This simple, colorful and tasty meal has the appetizing sweet-sour-salty-spicy blend that will entice your palate for more. To get started, run to your nearest local market or supermarket and buy the following:
5 blocks of tofu (tokwa)
3 tomatoes
3 green chilies (siling haba)
4 bundles (tali) of young, healthy petchay
1 pack of fermented black beans (tausi)
1 garlic
1 medium-sized onion
Salt and pepper (optional)
   Make sure that you’ve washed clean the first four ingredients before doing anything else. Once cleaned, follow the procedure below.
Cut the tofu blocks into desired size and shape. (Yes, you can even make star-shaped, heart-shaped, bell-shaped, and decagon-shaped tofus if you want. And if you can. Mine are just simple squares.)
Fry the tofu until golden brown and set aside.
While waiting for your tofu to get done, grab your petchays and remove a good portion of the root part. Cut the remaining part into crosswise strips. Set aside.
Get 4 cloves of garlic and mince it. Set aside.
Peel the onion and dice it. Set aside.
Cut away both ends of your green chilies and dispose the severed parts. Cut the remaining part crosswise to get circular segments.
Once all the tofus are beautifully brown and crispy, sauté the minced garlic and sweat the diced onion. (I had to drive my stepdad away while I was doing this because he was hovering over the kitchen, thinking I didn’t know how to sweat onions.)
Then add the green chilies.
Wait for the green chilies to get slightly cooked before adding the tomatoes.
Once the tomatoes start to juice out, add the tausi.
Mix the tasty colorful fusion well then add the fried tofu. Mix well again.
Place the chopped petchays on top of the mixture, add 1/4 cup of water and cover for 2 minutes.
Uncover the pot (or whatever it is that you’ll be using) and stir to distribute the greens evenly. Cover again for 3-5 minutes under low heat.
Season with salt and pepper if desired.
   Tadaaa! You now have a yummy vegan meal that can serve four to five people. I believe that the only arduous task here is the chopping part. But what’s a little chopping compared to eating a satisfying meal, right? Bon appétit!
