Parang kailan lang, we were fresh UP graduates trying to make a name for ourselves in media. He was an artist, I was a writer. Something developed between us then (No Einstein, it wasn't a picture!), and although it didn't work, he'll always have a special place in my heart.
Many years later, he's in Singapore still doing what he loves best: making his art. And I'm...well...languishing in the urban jungles of Cebu, still as an unnamed writer/spammer. He has really made a name for himself, and I'm so damn proud to have been part of this guy's life.
Please visit this link to The Manila Times online edition and you'll see what I mean.
Manny Francisco, bilib ako sa 'yo!
