Read Me

I’m Plaridel. What you will read here is fiction based on reality. Any similarities to the characters and events in the life of the author are purely intentional.

I believe one voice can make a difference. I’ve got opinions and so do you and I fully respect that. Friends say my sense of humor is rather dry. But there’s something I do know. If I can’t make them laugh, I can laugh with myself.

Please feel free to leave a comment to give me an idea on what you want to read. Now that you’ve found me, I want you back. Just be mindful of the PG13 rating, ok?

    thanks for the comments. “Plaridel” was the name of our college newspaper (Tagalog) in DLSU.

    May isa akong kaibigan, ang sabi niya..” Hindi na ako masaya”…gusto ko ng mamatay, walang ‘wenta buhay ko.

    Patawa siya o nag-iinarte lang?

    Tama ka Plaridel, kung di ka nakakatawa, pagtawanan mo sarili mo.

    Ang buhay talaga parang layf.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

It’s very good to discover a blog occasionally that is not all the same out of date rehashed material. Wonderful work! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your blog URL to my Google account today. Imagine, I love your site so much that I am interested to advertise my own site http://www.emt.co.il on it. Please email me at: everythingrainbowhk (AT) gmail.com specifying your annual banner rates.
