Trip with the Tripster


I have met one of my idols and supercrush in the blogworld last 02.07.2015!

Mr. Tripster Guy!

I tried not to be late, but I was late for an hour. Good thing this guy knows how to entertain himself. Instead of that ice cream parlor as rendezvous, I found him in a bookstore.

He is far from the buddha figure in his profile photo. Much as I want to post his photo, I was given very strict instruction not to post any evidence of his existence.

Well, ice cream then after a couple of hours, coffee fueled our conversations. We had non-stop conversations just about anything. But that topics that really made him shift more comfortably on his seat are books, reading, writing and politics, the Marcoses--- Imelda in particular. His passion about politics is very evident that I learned so much about the Philippine political systems and issues. He lives in another country but is way more informed about the Philippine politics that I do! I wish I can ask more questions but the four hours was not enough. I wish we had more time. Sobrang bitin!

In almost all meet ups like this, it's always like time flies so fast! Soooooo fast! I am just always so grateful for them taking time to meet in person. I am so glad I get to read his blogs and definitely honored to meet him in person, too! The aloof and suplado-type of writer can be not-so-forever-anonymous pala. We seem to jive at almost everything including boys. Hahaha.

Who doesn't love Nutella?! He gave me a Nutella spread as pasalubong. I didn't bring anything for him as I had no idea what could fit his liking and interest. Good thing, I have a filipino-authored novel I think I will never take time to read and he is the best person to have it. We met again the following day so I can give it to him and let him write on my little black notebook of memories.

When we parted ways bid our goodbyes and made that final beso-beso, I turned my back with mixed feelings. Overflowing happiness, there's tons of kiligs and a bit of panghihinayang. This guy, is the type of guy I would fall for. Only that, it can never ever be. How could I fall for a guy who happens to like guys as well? If not, I seem to have an affnity with the bad guys. What's wrong with me? Lol! Of course, nothing's wrong. The universe just tells me to wait. Hehehehe..

  5. Hindi ko alam kung bakit, pero ramdam ko ang iyong 'kilig factor' sa isinulat mong ito tungkol sa pagkikita ninyo ni Mr. Tripster! hahaha :)

    Nakakatuwa naman :)
    Pinakagusto kong part ay yung mga conversations ninyo, gustong-gusto ko ang mga opinionated na tao. Siguro kung kasama niyo ako, makukuntento na lang akong makinig sa inyong kuru-kuro, ang saya nun hehehe!
