I woke up today to Rocking Around The Christmas Tree blaring on my AM radio. I realized it is already September, the onset of the -BER months leading to Christmas. Only in the Philippines, which celebrates the Yuletide season for 5 long months, do you get to hear Christmas songs played on the radio on the first day of September. Somehow, it is the dread of the Christmas season coming that got me on a blue funk. And I cannot do anything about it. Next thing you know, you’ll see posts here of boys in red glittery bikinis or with poinsettias covering their members just like Gerard Sarmiento [photos above], a freelance bikini model.
