FPJ hospitalization shocks Filipinos
(Well, some of them)

Metro Manila, Philippines - Thousands of people gather today near St. Luke's Medical Center to pray for Actor and Presidential Candidate in comatose Fernando Poe, Jr. Most of them came to sympathize with the family and friends of the actor and some of them came to witness the transformation of the hospital lobby into an awards night red carpet zone.

Despite the barrage of breaking news on national TV that started yesterday, some of the people still didn't know of Mr. Poe's hospitalization. Some people even took the news only as a text joke just like Dolphy's death, which is a favorite news item among text message rumor mongrels.

Popular (and self-absorbed) personality Elvin also failed to catch the latest Buzz about the well-loved King of Philippine movies.

"Who? What? I don't know that. All I know is that i'm so happy because this is our last week at work and I can't wait for the holiday break."


Elvin fails to get ready for Christmas

In preparation for the Christmas season, Elvin tried to do some "Christmas shopping" yesterday but failed miserably. Instead of buying gifts for his family and friends, he ended up buying things for himself.

"He's such a self-absorbed person," said an anonymous vendor who, as of press time, still refuses to divulge his identity.

Just this morning, Elvin got a huge leather belt with a huge buckle and with a pistol slot (or whatever that's called)from Duncan. "That's for your cowboy costume that you'll be needing this Saturday," said Duncan, confronting the seemingly clueless Elvin.

"Our party's on Saturday?" askedd Elvin.


Showbiz News: Elvin graces Pa-Siyam Screening

Local movie fans went crazy as Elvin attended one of the screenings of the Erik Matti horror flick Pa-Siyam.

"I went here despite all my friends' warnings. They said it's not worth my time and money but I am a proud supporter of local films so I'll watch anything," said the very amiable Elvin.

While other viewers were screaming their lungs out, Elvin was laughing hysterically throughout the film's screening.

"The ghost's name is Nerissa and I have an officemate with that name. Nerissa's spirit was being called by an espiritista named Inang Albina. I have an officemate named Alvin but I think that's irrelevant," explains Elvin.

Asked whether he liked the movie or not, Elvin said, "Kuya Dick is effective. He's scary. He played the eldest brother from abroad. I also loved Aubrey Miles who played herself."

"Did you like the movie," repeated another reporter.

"Ara Mina acts better than her sister," was Elvin's vague response.
