Seeds Of Terror by Maria A. Ressa: Monocotyledon or Dicotyledon?
We had to attend, CNN’s Jakarta Bureau Chief, Maria Ressa’s book launching. The book was entitled “Seeds of Terror.” It was basically about the Al-Quaeda in Indonesia and how these terrorists are linked to the Philippines.
May Q & A portion. At ang tanong ko sana, “ Ahm, I just want to ask. Are they (books) Monocot or Dicot?” Pero baka ipabaril niya ako sa Al-Quaeda, tumahimik na lang ako.
At sabi ni Lawrence, “May sequel yung book. Ang mga title, “Roots of Terror,” “Stems of Terror,” at “Fruits of Terror.” May point siya…
After the long talk, autograph signing na. Instead na book, ang dala namin eh picture ng book. Eh makapal naman kami at iyon lang ang kailangan, sumige pa rin. When she was about to sign mine, she asked me, “ Are you interested in terrorism?”
I answered, “Actually I’m planning one…”
She looked intently at me and asked, “What?”
“I’m planning to bomb this (place) after the book launching.”
And all she can tell me is, “NO!”
She asked my name—Jaycee. J-A-Y-C-E-E.
“What an interesting name!” she said.
And when I got the picture, I read:
Thank you for coming and really—don’t join them!
