I Got Me Some 3D Glasses, Y'all!

Just got home from the movies. My brother and I watched Avatar in 3D. The movie was alright, although I took me a bit of time to get used to the whole 3D effect thing.
Oh, the people at the theatre gave us these free 3D glasses for the movie. We were supposed to return them after but these were just too dorky looking to give back. Being the geek that I am, I just had to keep these as a souvenir.




I'm actually a bit disappointed they didn't give us those old school 3d glasses with the red and blue lenses. I guess the company who made these ones wanted to be all fashionable and whatnot by going with the darker rimmed ones. I still like the older design with the red and blue lenses.

Mom's Cooking Rocks!


Still having a great time here at my parents' place. All I've been doing so far is eat, eat, and eat some more. My mom and I love to cook. I'm actually the household's official taste tester. Haha.


We all went to the grocery this afternoon and I actually asked my mom to make some of my favourite dishes I haven't eaten in like the longest time - liver and chicken gizzards (yes, I like that), spanish rice paella, and "lugaw" (Filipino congee).



Mmmm....chicken gizzards and liver. Want some? It's actually quite good. You really should try it at least once.


I'm still trying to convince my mom to appear on my BlogTV broadcast since a lot of you are actually looking forward to seeing her again. Don't worry guys, I'll get her to come on cam eventually.

I got featured on BlogTV...again.

Hey guys, I'm at my parents' house for the holidays for the next 17 days and I'll be blogging all sorts of stuff while I'm here. Let's start with something that happened last night over at my BlogTV channel. As if the title didn't already give it away.


I wanted to do a quick blogtv show last night just to say "hey!" to everyone before I left for my very early train ride the following morning. We did our usual thing: play music, dancing, random discussions, and other things. About an hour into the broadcast the current viewers I had and myself all noticed that the "visitor count" began to increase - ten became fifteen, fifteen became 30, and so forth. My channel was now being brodcast on BlogTV's homepage. My channel was now being "featured."

For those of you who may not know, being "featured" means your live channel broadcast will be the very first thing visitors see when they go to BlogTV's site. This gives you a brief chance to show what you got to those who otherwise not know who the heck you are. This was your very brief 15 minutes of fame in front of the BlogTV community.

I've been featured before. I think last night was the tenth time, I'm not sure. I don't really know the requirements (someone let me know) in order to become featured but I guess I'm doing something right. I was just there being myself, being nice to everybody, and playing all sorts of music genres - from Sinatra to Snoop Dog and everything in between.
You know, the usual.
What's also really interesting was some time before the channel got featured I recorded a 30-minute video of the broadcast. It's pretty much a little bit of everything I do when I go live.

Anyway, if you still haven't been to my channel yet, or if you missed the show last night, or if you just want to watch me dance to "Greased Lighting" in a suit, see me almost fall off my chair dancing to "I'm On A Boat", perform Hakuna Mutata, hear me affectionately talk to my mom, and give you the most random song at the end, then CLICK THIS LINK: http://bit.ly/4OIxx2

That's it for now. I'll be blogging more things soon while I'm here. See ya! ^_^ v

Girls Don't Need Saving

As always: Drawn and Written by me...
"I've flown endless nights,
calling out your name..."

"Vanquished many foes,
endured countless pains..."

"I came to your rescue,
I thought that's how it ought to be..."
"But then I found out-
you're much stronger than me!"

NOYTUBE Christmas Collaboration Video!

A few weeks ago, I sent in a clip for a YouTube Christmas video collaboration that features Filipinos and non-Filipinos. This morning, the finished video finally went live.



If you're reading this from my Facebook page, click here.



The video was compiled and created by Jason Telmo, the creator of NOYTUBE - another popular Filipino collaboration video.

My Fashion Style

The article below was featured in TheCollegeEssential.com. It's under their MyStyle Section.

I have what some might consider a preppy/sophisticated look. As a petite guy (5'6"), I stay away from bright, loud colors and stick to the dark neutrals - brown, black, and navy blue. I also stay away from clothes with too much print or loud graphics on them.



For me, style is all about how you carry yourself, your clothes, and how everything goes together. One of the best style tips I've learned that really helped me is to find a FOCAL POINT in your outfit, whether it's your belt, scarf, or shoes.



Well-chosen accessories are vital to completing the look and are as important as my outfit for the day. A well-maintained leather bag gives a classy touch. Scarfs are also great and should be a staple in anybody's wardrobe. A great hat can also add flavour and personality to your look. I also love cardigans for its versatility. I can dress them down with a pair of jeans or wear them on a more formal occassion.



I see clothes as an investment. There is nothing wrong with spending a bit more on higher quality pieces that will last for a long time. Also, I'm open to having my suits tailored to my perfect size, whenever possible. There is nothing worse than wearing a suit that's a bit too small or a bit too large. It just looks bad.



Clothes are an extension of who we are. I'm happy to say I found my look that best suits my personality.

This is me. This is my style.
