Now I became the Epitome of Sorry. 'Was sick, bedridden, not working, not blogging, neither reading nor replying to you for days. SORRY!
Dear Folks, AJ's not (and will never-ever) giving cold shoulder to your kind calls and messages. This what happened: A gadget-freak buds and I went to a jump-packed Mall and sweat in the building's carpark for an hour or so to find a legal parking. As we moved in and out of the car under a temperature thats oh-both extreme!, our back's turned wet, dry and wet. To make the story short, It was me who were affected thereafter. BADLY!
Let me thank the FF for the newfound strength that saved yours truly in the nick of time:
1.My "marathon" Doc who accused me of burning candle at both ends. The expensive antibiotics and Med. certificates he signed does help, anyway.
2. PRAYERS and GET WELL SOON's by family and social circles. For my mother's binahang "lugaw" na di gawa sa malagkit. (Yacky mum can't take it, but TY, she's more sickly than I am yet, she get up to tend for me night or day)
3. Baby Yom & Jen's (My 2 & 3 yr olds made-in-Dubai Pamangkins) cherubic faces and angelic laughter sans their Royal Rumble Acts. It kept their eccentric-ageing Tito awake and absentminded of his internal menace.
4. And for this wow! email from a loyal-global reader in New Delhi?, India. Great Maximo, you're one true Pal I regretted letting go. A portion of my dude's letter quotes:"My Dearest Friend Josh,

I bestow on you the Title Sir.... From now on i'll call you Sir for your amazing work and progress on your Blog. Keep the good work going.....Cheers.!!

Give my love to the little angels, and regards to all at home and all your friends that i met. Miss you all a lot. Take Care, you're missed. Max"
Even my infected tonsil remains hurting, can't hold-down my jaw to smile-wide. That was the first time he return to counter-attack my blogs (after moving it from Friendster - Blogspot last June 07 (what?? I'm on my first year in B.S.?). As a courtesy, I had this Ma'as-sala-am (GoodBye) Entry for the guy, hope you'll check and see.
Getting closely-acquainted with non-Pinoy is one of the many perks of working in a place that's a melting pot of cultures. Max has proven to be one of them. The same goes to all my virtual buddies who showered me with warm-cool thoughts in my sickness or in health. You're too many to mention, but let me do the catching-up someday! I got an alarming advices to mellow my eyes from reading, writing or using the computer. "A friendly way" of saying Let the life get out of you!..GRRR!! So, when time comes i'm not as visible here as I was, it may only mean I went well w/ the saying.
Pero kung ano daw ang bawal iyon daw ang masarap eh. With great peeps like you who complement the blogosphere's charm, tell me ... how could I resist the mighty calling? May the No. 1 Author/ Editor/Provider upthere entrust me with some more blogtasks to do ( I'll b wholesome!), good eyesight & vision, bettter vigor & guts, global readers & cyberkada the most! And I'll say the same wishes to you!.
Summer sickness and blues aside, I'ts great to be back in my Portal. My next home.
