Humo Banned Commercial

This TVC is so damn funny that I almost died laughing for 10 seconds. I believe this is a banned condom commercial from Europe. Belgium, perhaps? I think you should watch it if you want to get ecstatic even for just a few seconds. So brilliant. Click the link below to view video.

The sexiness that is Alvin Montilla

Mr. Vince Lopez's recent post in Multiply features Alvin Montilla (whosoever knew the guy, please educate us). It seems that my friend Lopez is quite in the mood to update his site regularly again. He was happy to share that this portfolio shoot with Montilla was his first photo shoot done in the swimming pool. The guy reminded me of Deejay Durano (of the TV series Marina). Do you think they're related in their past lives? Click here to visit Vince Lopez Photography. Continue reading to see more Montilla pictures.

For Future Reference

Few hours left before my shift, I explored the rest of the unpopular stores in TriNoma to check the hippest thing they could offer. (I only thought they're less visited that time, but I'm not sure if they still are on weekends and other time of the day.) I found a few stores that could be helpful for future reference: the best place to leave kids, to buy DVDs, to get gifts from, to shop for cute-sy furniture, among others. Of course, TriNoma has an array of great restaurants and food parlors, too. This time, Aso and I went to North Park for lunch and later that day, I went to Bigoli for my early dinner.

Happy Birthday

I wanna do the right thing and show to the world that I care. Though we celebrated this special day in advance last Monday, may the spirit of independence will stay in your heart and always. Happy Independence Day, my beloved country. Of course, let's not forget this guy who was brought into fame after making our independence official exactly 110 years ago.

The Bonbon Series: Craig Wing

Craig Wing (born 26 December 1979 in Sidney, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league player, and one good reason why he’s featured as Simply Manila’s new bonbon is because he’s half Filipino. But to be more truthful, I was thinking that he’s actually one hot bonbon you shouldn't miss. He looked so buff to me, and I ain't complaining. It's just, you know, that feeling when you eat a jawbreaker. If you know what I mean.

Watch Dennis Trillo as he strips for you!

Seen this video first in Mig's blog and I just can't help but admire the courage of this actor to dance like a total whore for this new series called Magdusa Ka (lit. Suffer). Dennis Trillo, that sexy actor you've seen in many GMA series before, is now back as a club stripper (or so I thought). He looked somehow serious in his new role, at times laughable and trying too hard. But for some people like me who never saw a real stripper before, Trillo is almost convincing. I heard a lot of rumors that GMA shows are cheap (or something to that effect) so I hope this show could offer something new and valuable to its viewers.

Private Experiment

I was just simply applying and experimenting on this new thing I discovered not too long ago, that is: making use of a coffee filter to diffuse a camera’s flash on close-ups. I also discovered how to set up this timer thing for my camera so I got like 10 seconds to pose like a total cam-whore. It was fun.

Friday Malling

Last Friday, Aso and I went to SM Mall of Asia (after our brief appearance at the DFA for some serious stuff about my passport application) and tried the “ice skating” thing. It was our first time to give this thrilling activity a shot and, God knows, how I hardly tried to enjoy every piece of it. The Philippines is a tropical country and seeing a huge expanse of ice is quite a new thing for us. So I guess it’s natural to feel the way I felt (and to look the way I looked) when I was in the middle of that ice rink. But it was definitely one of the most memorable experiences I had these days.

No Matter How Small


It is hard to distinguish those things that could make us happy from the ones that could not. More often than not, we rely on cynical assumptions and urgent excitements when we decide to commit on things that we thought could make our day. Sadly, at the end of the day, we eventually realize that they’re nothing but a total waste of time, money and effort.
