Well, this was a long time ago. A guy who was kinda courting my first GF told her. "Wala yang si Gilbert. Komiks? Putsa, walang pera yan. Drawing lang ng drawing, nabubulok naman ang papel, tatapon ko lang yan eh." So, I told her it is okay he felt that way about my work but understand, if he think that low about drawings, why does he keep his money? "May drawing din naman ang pera ah, sige nga itapon niya?"
