Pure shores

I'm not in the right season (except if I'm in Europe but right now I'm not), I know, but I'm reading Alex Garland's The Beach whenever I can.

The man's been frequenting the Philippines every year and he slips right under our noses?

“Pure shores”

    hey. you left a message on my blogspot. then the link you left was directed to your LJ, so I tried to leave you a message there. But your LJ rejected my comment, saying something like 'sod off, only friends can leave comments'. anyway, i added you there as well. :p

    so, how'd you find my blogspot?

    Have you read The Tesseract? That one has Metro Manila as a setting. Not that I've read it but been meaning to borrow my brother's copy but haven't the time.
