“When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart”
Gusto ko kasing iparating sa inyong lahat na ang mga babaeng bumubuo ng tinatawag nating “red district” ay mga taong gawa rin sa dugo at laman. They live, they love, they cry, they laugh, they hurt. But mostly …they hurt. I came to know them and ended up admiring them.- Ella
It is not too often that I stumble upon a blog site that captures my overwhelming interest that I begin to read its every post. Post after post after post, I found myself wanting to read more. I was hooked to every word she wrote. And after finishing each post, I even dug into the comments. She had a way of putting down her experiences, (a lot of them with sexual references, so warning “For Mature Readers only”) in an entertaining, light-hearted way and using words that are neither offensive nor vulgar. Not surprisingly a publisher had offered to publish her blog in a book.
While reading, I sometimes can’t help myself think if she is indeed real and not just a figment of the imagination of a professional writer. It’s also hard to believe that she is only in her 20's.
The blog I’m referring to is “Confessions ni Ella, No.88 Blog ng Isang Masahista”. Ella’s occupation is one that is not held in high regard in our society. It is one that is looked down upon by most. However, while reading Ella’s blog, I have nothing but respect and admiration for her. For here is a person who is making the most out of the hard and sometimes dog-eat-dog surroundings she’s in. She, through her writings, projects herself as a genuine, often naive person, and a sincere, caring friend to her co-workers and her readers. Her writings exude intelligence, wit and wisdom way over her age.
