The protégé

Kim Chiu is wearing a kindergarten student's fluffy puffy-sleeved white blouse over a Makati employee's pin-striped long-sleeved shirt, a long string of fake Baclaran beads from Aling Oryang the Quiapo fortune-teller, and a short-stemmed red rose grabbed from her boyfriend's ex hanging limply off her starched collar.


I do not know whether to laugh or to cry, because it seems like we have a new Jolina Magdangal, after the original Jolina has run off and gotten married, which I still have not gotten to accept by the way -- isn't she only thirteen? -- and so it is a lot for me to ackowledge the existence of yet another multi-layered, large-beaded, real flower-decorated dresser whose only talent is having been able to live with several other teenagers in a house with no cellphones, no television, and no dsl.

At least Jolina sings.

But then again, no. She does not sound nice. And I do not want any other younger incarnation of her.

because of you, i have stopped referring to the bubble skirt as the bubble skirt. instead, when i walk in front of stores windows, i say to myself, "oh look, it's the *vile* bubble skirt."

lol :))

Bryanboy.com is another version of Boy Abunda's bad taste and gossiping. Keep your style Laitera. Don't be a fashion victim like BryanBhhhhhooooooyyyy.com!

From your fans in New York.
