Feature: Where a moustache can mean life or death

Easily identified by trademark facial hair, Kakai Kurds in northern Iraq live under constant threat.

 "The soul needs to reincarnate a thousand times before becoming one with god,“ says Rajab Assy Karim from Ali Saray, 190 kilometres north of Baghdad. Iraq is full of "shortcuts” to the ultimate, and several seem to pass through this tiny desert village.

The few hundred people living in the adobe houses of Ali Saray are all Kakais, followers of an ancient pre-Islamic creed whose mere survival in this region in the 21st century is a miracle.

Karim knows this, and devotes most of his spare time to collecting books for the only library among the 12 Kakai villages clustered in this region.

“We are halfway between Tikrit - Saddam Hussein’s hometown and a stronghold of his supporters - and the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq,” says Karim. “The area is overrun by terrorists and we make one of their easiest targets.”

Battalia Royale, the loosely-based play adaption of the film and novel Battle Royale, was one bloody, funny, and scary theater production. I wore a white shirt that Friday night to get all the blood that I could get from all the killings, which I got by luck. Sadly, it wasn’t real blood.The blood stains all over me were easily washed away. So much for a this-shirt-was-blood-soaked-from-my-Battalia-Royale-experience shirt. (Sipat Lawin, are you reading this? Haha.)

We watched the first run at the Cubao leg of the play and Jessica won in our version, who also happened to be the one who brought us there at the venue. (The play provided a school bus for those who parked at Gateway Mall in Cubao since the abandoned school where the play was being held has very few parking spaces.)

Catch them perform/kill again on September 2012!

“Ang TUNAY NA LALAKI, weakness ang pinakamamahal niyang BABAE”.Na ayon sa pag-aaral mas grabe maheartbroken ang lalaki. As in grabe! Pag nawala na yung girl sa tabi nila naku akala mo kung san napadpad yung girlfriend eh nandun lang naman sa bahay. Pero pwera talaga biro. Mas hindi kaya ng mga lalaking mawala yung babaeng talagang pinaka-iingat-ingatan nila, yung babaeng nagbibigay sakanila ng lakas na loob na mabuhay at harapin ang bagong araw, yung babaeng tunay nilang pinakamamahal. Kahit na anung sabihin ng iba, ang lalaki talaga pare-pareho! …

“ganitong pagkakataon”.Ang mga lalaki matagal makamove-on from a true relationship lalo na kung he already plan yung future nila ng babaeng mahal nya. He will take the risk just to keep yung pagmamahalan na sinimulan na nila. Kaya sa mga girls out there kung ang mga boyfriend nyo eh masyado ng plinaplano ang future nyo don’t doubt na pakasalan sila pag niyaya na nya ikaw magpakasal kasi ang lalaki seryoso sa ganung bagay. Pero sana isipin nyo yan kung pareho na kayong ready to commit at stable na ang buhay. Yung tipong ready nyo ng panindigan ang pagiging mag-asawa. Kasi ayon nga kila LOLO’T LOLA natin :“Ang pag-aasawa hindi yan parang kanin na mainit na kapag napaso ka bigla mo nalang iluluwa”.

KAKAY PART 4

Many days passed at sa wakas dumating na ang Christmas Break. Tuwang tuwa ako non. Bakit ba. Di niyo naman ako masisisi kasi nabitin nga ako. December 20 ako nakalabas sa Academy nun and kinabukasan nun, nakipagkita ulit ako sa kanya. :)) As planned, sa Ayala Triangle kami pupunta. Ako naman, nagpakuha pa ng driver kasi hindi ko po alam yung daan papunta sa kanila. Medyo taga Muntinlupa kasi siya at ako'y taga Cavite. So sinundo ko siya sa bahay nila. Nagpicture picture kami dun, with our friend na tropang tropa ko talaga na si nonch :)) I gave nicole flowers telling her that I like her. Natuwa naman ako sa reaction niya kasi :“> HAHAHA. picture some more and ayun, nagpunta kami sa glorietta at kumain kami sa Pizza Hut. Medyo nagtagal kami dun eh. Lumampas na nga siya sa curfew niya eh. :)) Di na namin napansin ang oras sa sobrang enjoy namin. Hinatid ko siya pauwi and asked if I could hug her. She said yes so I hugged her. This completed my night :)) Kahit na 2 hours pa ang byahe ko pauwi, okay lang kasi worthit naman.
