  1. Wow. Touch naman ako. To those who are wondering what Roar of the Rings mean, let me tell you this: you will never find out. or i can tell you what that meant but i have to kill you after hahaha. Isang mudshake lang ang katapat!

    Seriously, thanks, vanechie sa blog. i appreciate your appreciation.

    p.s. why is there a third *toot*? who'se the third?

  2. o how forgetful of you to forget the third "toot" hehe. its... *TOOT*! Remember?

    Anyway, to those who want to know about this "Roar of the Rings" thing, you don't have to get yourself killed by asking Pastor Bong. You can just ask me. heheheh! =)

  3. So Nechie, just between the two of us, what is this "Roar of the Rings"? For my other questions, I'd have to ask in person! :-)

  4. Roar of the Rings... Hmm, im guessing it has something to do with the sound of Pastor Bong's hearty laughter?

    Wow, three *toot*s :) way to go, pas! shall we add the mindanao-based *toot*s? hahaha! ;)

  5. Beng, this "Roar of the Rings" is... Pastor Bong himself! hehe, I am being vague, am I not? I can elaborate over chocolate mudshake. =) So what are your other questions?

    Aleks... "TOOT!"... wrong answer. Well, close enough though, besides, Pastor Bong does have a "Roaring" laughter. haha!

  6. gah.
    it IS a BONG post!!!!!

    Oh well, I guess there's no such thing as over-apprecation in our world.

    I'm not to keen on saying goodbye to you, the only thing that's changed is you're not the church pastor anymore (it's not the upheavel of the century). all else have remained the same. (whew, i pulled that off without getting too cheesy).

  7. olive, this is more of a penance than an over-appreciation... actually, its a chance for me to reveal some of his deep dark secrets... subtly. hehehe. Peace, pastor bong!
