Read: World's largest floating bookfair to visit Manila

I lied to my parents about having a date tonight. It was an excuse to extort money so I can spend this Friday in South Harbor smelling books and leafing crispy papers. I was supposed to feel guilty since I just had my laptop repaired but the temptation of floating away from this world is too hard to antagonize. To justify my act of unbecoming of a good son, I have constantly reminded myself that all my past relationships are with fictional characters so it's quite hard to miss this opportunity.


  1. Oh my God.

    It's the Logos.

    The first and last time I was on a Logos vessel was when I was a child. A distant American cousin was on the Logos staff, and after the meet-and-greet with her extended Filipino family, she brought me and my cousins onboard this floating treasure trove.

    Good times.

  2. Hahaha my teenager self would totally be able to relate to this. I felt more affinity with fictional characters than with the dregs of real life.
