Discreetionary: booking


booking [BOOK·ing] noun 1. in cruising, an agreement made with another guy for sexual activities in the near future. 2. the guy with which the aforementioned agreement is made. example: "Sorry, hindi ako makakasama mamaya sa gimik natin kasi may booking na ako." etymology: from the English booking, a contract or engagement.

I guess many PLU guys already know this term, but I'm willing to bet that there are some out there who are still clueless. Anyway, "booking" is one of those terms that need no further explaining as long as it's uttered in the proper context by friends, like in a bar or a club ("May booking ka na?"). As far as I can tell, this is a distinctly Pinoy term and is probably the equivalent of "trick" in the United States.

i went to E for the first time before my departure to UK last nov. 27. i heard a lot about this place and out of curiosity i checked out the blogs and found the address. it was quite late when i went there, it is not too far from pan pacific manila where i stayed. i was quite nervous, the taxi driver keep on asking where exactly in leon guinto....i just told him to drive all the way while i was looking around the name epitome.... while i could not even see the exact location, i advised the driver to pull over, i went out and walked all by myself until i found out the place....i was really scared, i was pretending myself by being composed while taking the cut the story short, i was able to invade the place....

after registration, i kept my valuables including my expensive watch and i was hoping it wouldnt be lost.

i proceeded to the dressing area, there are some guys there looking at me and i was quite timid if i will look at them too...i am a good looking discreet guy, but with a liitle tummy.....but despite my tummy, i am still attractive to the gay men....

when the receptionist handed me the towel and condom, i was surprised, somewhere along the way, something might happen.......

i went to explore the place, to the video room, to the cubicle, down to the maze and to the steam room, then to the jacuzzi, there was one chubby foreigner, roamimg around naked. i went to the bar area, drunk a bottle of beer, then i proceeded to the steam room, i was alone first, then one guy came inside, he introduced himself, and ask me many things...he even told me that i am handsome, and i dot know if thats a real compliment or just for reason......
he offerred me for a toir in the area, when we wlaked down the maze he held my balls, aand i was kind of surprised.. he even offered for sex in the cubicle. it took me one hour to get convinced. i was conscious enoigh that many eyes were with big thing happened, only bj....he gave me a nice bj, it was a nice experience though...... will plan to go back there during my next homecoming in summer....anyone?
