Today I went to the office because we were shooting Liz's episodes for StarWorld's Behind The Bylines. And as usual when I got to work after lunch, parking in my building was full already. So on to Plan B, which was to park in the mall beside my office and walk the short distance.
I'm used to this routine. Park. Buy a Super Taro Ice from Quickly and walk the 5 minute length, preferably in flats--as I pass through some rough terrain because of an ongoing construction site. What was different from my day today was this guy who came up to me while I was juggling my bags (with no poise AT ALL) coming into the basement mall entrance. He goes:
"Hi, can I have a photo taken with you?"
Till now, this question never fails to surprise, disconcert and dumbfound me. I never really know what to say back. And of course I go:
And then he goes:
"I read your blog!."
OHHH! Okay. *huge sigh of relief* and still not contended, I go:
"So what's the name of my blog?", he smiles and says:
Okay, GO! Pose. Picture! Phaakk! Haha. Thanks Ivan for coming up to me and saying Hi. And if I sound suspicious, my apologies. This whole people-recognizing-me takes a lot of getting used to. Because in reality, my work happens behind the spotlight. But I'm sooooper happy that you did. Apparently, we work in the same building, but he's from Accenture, and I'm from Summit. I have readers. Yay!! =)
And at the office, Liz and Vince pretending to not know that I'm taking photos. Heeeh.
Di naman ako na brief na Birthday mo pala mads! haha.
Yes, she comes to the office like dut talaga.
Adidas Giraffe Sneakers. So coot.
Bincht who looks like Nino.
And Liz's pretty assistants: Lissa and Reese.
