I cast my vote in the first automated Philippine elections

I cast my voteI was voter 117 in the queue which, by UP standards, was still relatively short. The system was slow, and the people were complaining. It was only 8 am.

My number was called at around 10 am. I finished marking my ballots in less than 2 minutes. I had a list which made things easier.

So how did it feel like?

When I read "Congratulations!" on the PICOS PCOS machine, I felt like I just made history.

How did you fare?

Lance! Haha. For some reason, I can't get over you wearing that shirt! Feeling ko, somehow, parang hindi ikaw. With the shades and all.

I was really going to post something serious and democratically important here, but fashion took over. Hahahaha. I miss you! :)

Kat, it's an old, plain t-shirt (and speaks nothing of my political choices, just to make that clear). Oh yes, the shades are helping in dealing with the heat. I hope they don't make me look like I'm blind.

Can't wait to read what you have to write about the election.
