Weekend With Andre

Status: SICK! TONSILITIS! My first this year.
Music: Mad – Ne-Yo | Poker Face – Lady GaGa

Last year, my friend Andre introduced Diego to me. And right then, I fell in love. Diego was just soooo nice and cool and fashionable and affordable. Oh, sorry, I’m talking about the store. DIEGO Store.

Their items, especially their pullovers and shirts were so cute. The best thing about it is that since it’s not that popular yet, you don’t have to worry about being in the same place with someone wearing the same shirt. Exactly the reason I stay away from popular lines like Penshoppe, Bench, Folded and Hung. I don’t usually care about fashion, but it happened to me once. I was wearing Bench and I ran into a guy who was in the same shirt. Gaaaah, mortifying.

Last Friday (8pm), Andre and I dropped by the Mall of Asia to grab a gift. And we came across a new shop — FOX. And whoooah, I looove the store. It excites me in ways that only sex does. It’s an Israel-based fashion chain. They have really, really pretty items there, and they are not costly!

My conscience tells me I must come back. Yeah, coz my conscience is gay like that.

Saturday, 1am.

After the party. Somewhere around BF Homes in Paranaque.

Andre: You wanna kill time at Starbucks?
Yoshke: Eeeh. I don’t wanna spend anymore. I have a couple of gift certificates from my boss but I left them at home.
Andre: Oh, you don’t need gift certificates. You just need me.

Huwaaaw. That’s me being a friend with benefits. LOL.

Saturday, 6pm

While on the train to my apartment. Andre spotted a cute CILF (Commuter I’d Like to Fu… er… poke. yeah, Commuter I’d Like to Poke). Make that CILP.

Andre: Confirmed. That guy is gay.
Yoshke: How’d you know?
Andre: He’s wearing Folded & Hung.

Wahahahaha. WTF.

Sunday, 11:30pm

Along Tomas Morato. Andre and I just had dinner. But he wanted a cup of coffee. Off to Starbucks. I waited outside. When Andre emerged from the store, he had a certain glow.

Andre: (still glowing) There were too many cute guys at Starbucks. Didya see?
Yoshke: Yeah.
Andre: And they were all staring at me; I was like “Waitamoo guys, one at a time!” Hindi ko kayo kaya nang sabay-sabay!

One time last year

Andre, Frances and I were somewhere in Araneta Center trying to find a good place to pig out.

Frances: In fairness sa’yo Andre, you blossomed after the breakup. You have popped out of your cocoon . You transformed!
Andre: So I used to be a caterpillar?
Yoshke: No, you were a maggot.
Andre: And now?
Yoshke: Now you’re a… faggot.

    Heh. This made me smile.

    Tell your friend Andre that I’d like to borrow his line, “Oh, you don’t need gift certificates. You just need me.” Alavit. πŸ™‚

    • i dont need to tell him, he visits this blog. πŸ˜›

  • Now you mentioned Diego, I’m pretty sure sisiskat na ang store na yan,

    • haha, hindi naman siguro vins! πŸ˜›

  • hehe, kulit ng mga friends mo.

    • IKR! πŸ˜› masaya sila kasama, witty sila, at lagi nila akong binibigyan ng materials for this blog nang hindi sila aware. haha

  • Haha. I went shopping this weekend too with some friends. It’s a breath of fresh air to shop with other guys who enjoy shopping for clothes like I do instead of going myself. Shopping and checking out fellow shoppers is the best. I can finally wear clothes I wanna wear and it’s exciting. πŸ˜› I wouldn’t mind headin’ to your mall. I wonder if the style/trends in clothes there is different than here in the states.

    • that’s the thing, I actually dislike shopping. πŸ˜› I’m just the type of person who buys something he likes impulsively.

      Andre loves shopping, though. Loves it like mad.

  • pao

    you should also try 101 NEW YORK. they have outlets in megamall and landmark. nice clothes and new designs. hindi siya mainstream unlike bench and talagang cutting edge ang style nila. so new york! hehe.

    nagiging stereotypical gay clothing nga ang f&h. e pano ba naman, kung pumunta ka sa store nila, mega overdrive ang gaydar mo! and let’s face it, they cater naman talaga to the pink market. but i don’t like their designs anymore. dati maganda, ngayon deteriorating na. nagiging bench na sila..just for the sake of selling clothes. πŸ™

    • TRUE! 101 NEW YORK. pero mas mahal sya eh.

      OK din yung BSX!

      TOTOO! Sasabog ang gaydar mo sa F&H. Grabe. haha

      • At least merong store na nagke-cater para sa atin. Pero hindi pa ako nakakabili ng kahit ano dun. Haha. Nasa Timog pala ako last Sunday! I was with a friend, dinner lang sa Marina. Nag-aaya siya ng coffee kaso I didn’t want to have any coffee. Hindi ko alam kung bakit. Tsk. Nakita ko sana kayo ni AndrΓ© sa Starbucks. Hehe. πŸ™‚

        Pero, hhmmm, ilang beses kami dumaan sa Starbucks eh. Hindi kaya andun na kayo. Lemme check. Hehehe

      • ako rin, walang anything na F&H.

        Sandali lang kami sa Starbucks kasi to-go lang naman yung coffee.

        Malapit lang dun apartment ko. At madalas ako sa Timog-Tomas Morato Area. Sa Gloria Jeans ako nakatambay parati. haha

        • Saan dun ung apartment mo? Can I drop by? LOL

        • somewhere there. πŸ˜› basta sobrang lapit lang dun.

        • Saan nga?!?!?!?! Hahaha. πŸ˜€

        • wag na alamin. haha

        • Walang sikretong hindi nabubunyag. Hahahaha! πŸ˜›

  • There’s a branch near my gym.

    Is that in mega?

    • the pic? yes. i think sa megamall yan. πŸ™‚

      Slimmers’ ang gym mo?

  • ced

    that happened to me too. yung may makapareho ng damit, good thing i have a jacket then. and that was my epiphany to buy somewhere else. hehe. parang di ko pa kayang bumili sa diego. can i borrow Andre? para makatry din ng diego? aheheh or kahit coffee? ahehe

    ingats palagi!=p

    • Uuuyy! He wants AndrΓ©! Char! πŸ˜€

    • CED, sige, ipapahiram ko si andre! Kelan mo gusto? Hahaha. Kahit wag mo na ibalik.

      KEVIN, haha, nang-iintriga ka ha. gumagawa ka ng love team. Haha. Hinahanapan ko nga ng kaloveteam yun eh.

      • Ayun naman pala eh. Hinahanapan mo ng ka-loveteam si AndrΓ©, eh di si Ced na lang. Hahaha

      • haha, sana magkakilala sila di ba? πŸ˜›

      • Uso naman ang pagpapakilala di ba? πŸ˜›

        • ced

          hala! hiram lang po ah! haha
          tapos wala pang balikan? ahaha

        • Come on Yoshke! Type nga ni Ced si AndrΓ©! Hahaha

        • CED, hindi nga, seryoso ka? haha. Seseryosohin ko yan, ichechever kita ke Andre. haha

        • ced

          may magagalit e. kaya hiram lang kung pwede. hehe

        • Nakow! Problema yan, may magagalit pala.

        • Ay serious nga si Kuya. Hehehe. πŸ˜€

          @Yoshke: You might wanna ask AndrΓ© kung OK lang sa kanya na third party siya. Char! πŸ˜€

          Third party? WTF?! Hahaha. πŸ˜€

          Pero personally, ayoko maging third party. Makakapatay ako galit.

        • hindi okay kay andre yun for sure. haha

        • Naman! Hehehe

          @AndrΓ©: If you’re reading this, wag ka sasama kay Ced unless wala na sila nung magagalit. HAhaha

          @Ced: Peace out! πŸ˜€

  • ron

    almost every one blossoms after a break up from a bad relationship, don’t you think? hehe!

    • Uhm. Not at all times, pero ngayon, I think I’m OK. πŸ˜€

    • RON and KEVIN, I’m not really sure. πŸ˜›

    • Hindi rin naman ako sure parati, pero ngayon, mukhang OK naman ako after ng ‘draining relationship’ ko. Hahaha

  • R!#%$!#@

  • andreEeEe

    O. Ang funny ko pala…?

    BTW, it was you who introduced me to Diego. Not the other way around as you claim it to be. REMEMBURRR??? We were meeting at Mega. And I was eternally late so you went around while waiting for me. Then you saw Diego. Then you brought me there.




      It was me who found it first and introduced it to you. hmmmmmmmm

      • White lies. Joke! πŸ˜€

  • man, i like folded&hung! im wearing it. lol.

    but penshoppe i think is more gay?

    • I don’t think so. Penshoppe is much like Oxygen, astigin tignan. F&H “is” gay. πŸ˜€

    • I like Oxygen! I just hate their billboards.

      • Sakto lang naman ung billboards nila ah. πŸ˜•

  • haha same reason i stay away from bench and penshoppe!!!

    yeah u are right folded and hung are gay’s choice of clothing lately and they hang out at starbucks!hehehe

  • Ako, I’m so into Bench. Fortunately though, wala pa naman akong napuntahan na place na may kapareho akong Bench ensemble. Hehehe

  • hahaha…

    post some more weekends with andre!!

    i had fun…

    • i will. i’ve just spent this weekend with him again. and he said and did several very bloggable things. πŸ˜›

  • hahahahaha :))

  • KZ*

    OMG ANDRE! hahahaha.
    Lahat kasi daw ng tao nakatingin sa kanya. HAHA.

  • Andre: So I used to be a caterpillar?
    Yoshke: No, you were a maggot.
    Andre: And now?
    Yoshke: Now you’re a… faggot.

    Hahahaha. Tawang-tawa lang ako dito. πŸ™‚

  • my gaydar is always on. i can sniff a gay guy from a mile away. haha

  • no. its ok. no problem using my pic. Thanks for informing me about it.

    • Yay! Thanks. πŸ™‚

  • weee i love Diego, their shirts are so comfy.

    weee i like Andre na. parang sarap kaibiganin haha.

    i missed this blog, yosh! sa wakas nakabalik rin ako dito

  • tristan

    yeah, i tried buying clothes from both new york 101 and diego. they’r both nice stores and not that popular among many so small chance of having someone wearing the same garments as you do. and they’re both affordable. maybe a bit more costly than penshoppe and bench but hey, it’s worth it!!! and yeah, f&h is like, uh, so gay…
