So this is it. Barrio Alimasag is closing down.
Been a poster of the barrio for the last 3.5 years. I chanced upon it when I was just starting to work at the old office and my boss was starting to piss me off with all the micro managing. It gave me quite a number of laughs. The board is truly pinoy in that you can see the pinoy sense of humor emanate from every post. I developed a number of friendships there. I was the promotor of ali in my old office. Mitch and Raki saw me one day posting and almost choking from laughing about something, got intrigued and registered. We started talking *in code* about people that we chanced upon in the barrio. Mitch and I sometimes correspond through the private messages of the boards. The bond got stronger because of the barrio experience.
I am quite proud to say that I have not only been a member of the boards but at one time I have been a mod and an admin. To this day, I am one of the Bored members. I hope that I will always be Back Beauty and Julia Roberts to the other members.
I'm just hoping that I maintain all correspondences with the friends that I made there.
To mak, Lakan and Santa, Thanks for giving us that 4 years of fun and laughs. Wishing you well on your future endeavors. :)
