My letter to Junior Inquirer and GMA7

see letter here:

February 21, 2009

That was my letter to Junior Inquirer and GMA7 when I was still 12 years old. At such a young age, I already knew that I was gay. LOLZ!

I was kinda hooked into reading pocketbooks during that time: Sweet Valley, Goosebumps, and many others. But it's Sweet Valley and Goosebumps that I really loved the most. Sweet Valley in particular because I kinda had this small crush with Todd Wilkins, a fictional character in book. Geesh! Haha!

A few months after I wrote that letter to them, GMA 7 bought the rights of Sweet Valley which was, during that time, being shown in the US. They played a few seasons of the show. It was shown every Sunday morning, around 10:30AM. But what I kinda didn't like about what they did with the show was that they had it dubbed in Filipino. Well, I have nothing against my national language, ok. I love it. It's just that...they could've at least preserved the show. As is.

But, nevertheless, it was quite an experience. I've loved GMA 7 since then. I'm not a Kapuso, though. Neither am I a Kapamilya. I think these 2 networks are really undisputed "pillars" of the local entertainment industry and it's just such a waste to support only one of them.

I miss Sweet Valley. There are still Sweet Valley books around, new edition. But they're pretty expensive. Around P300.00 I think. Before, I only bought my Sweet Valley books for about P70.00-P89.00. There are also Goosebumps books in Powebooks but they're also quite expensive. I guess it has something to do with inflation.

Anyway, my point here is that...ever since I was young, I've always loved reading books. read as many books as you can while you're still young. I read Sweet Valley when I was crossing the bridge from being a child to a teenager. And look at what happened to me. Look at what I've become.

GAY! LOLZ! Just kidding.
