it was my freshman year at college. everyone was talking about irc, typing up experiment reports at the nearest cafe, and email. when friends started talking about "cool forwarded e-mails", i decided i should get an email address, too.

the tricky part was signing up with a unique ID. apparently, my name, not so common in the philippines, is oh-so-common in some other part of the world. i had to think fast, internet time wasn't cheap to a student's budget.

suddenly, i saw it! there it was, an old photo i glued to the back of the front page of my journal. i was four years old, wearing a red shirt and red shorts on top of our red old outrigger boat. PULANGBANCA.
