Little Betrayal

Except from the ever loyal destructor of this blog, I know that some of you can show a little distaste over some stuff posted in Simply Manila. Sometimes, to be fair, I actually hate my own posts. I could easily delete these posts if I’d like to, but I don’t want to compromise my thoughts so I keep them hanging there, hoping that someday I would eventually like them. Those were the thoughts that were running inside my head, and being no Einstein, some of my random thoughts could be so mediocre and forgettable. So forgive me for being me. Like I mentioned yesterday, my plan of breaking away from the single life shows some progress, and by progress I mean that guy above. He mentioned he doesn’t want his pictures published and, yes, I feel a little guilty over this little betrayal, but as long as this affair lasts, I want some of my friends to see who replaced my latest ex and who could most probably break my single status. Since I have sinned, you’re all free to judge me and express some revulsion.

Piolo Pascual's Pure Passion

Ever since my world began, I’ve always thought that being in the rush will never become a problem for me. I thought I would love the pressure, and that it would make me more productive and creative. But only after few weeks of handling a team and trying to measure up to the clients’ expectations, I am now sitting here, wondering how beautiful life could have been if I had more control with my supposedly spare time. And that’s why a stress-free weekend has always been something I’m always looking forward to. My plan of breaking away from the single life shows some progress, too, and though I don’t want to spoil the moment, I feel this momentary pleasure might blow apart any time soon. Now since I’m still a little stressed out, let me pamper myself with my latest celebrity man crush’s pictures…

The treasure trail of Richard Gomez

There’s so much more to learn about the respected guys of today—those who have earned our trust as the years passed by. If you dig deeper into their pasts, you’ll see there’s nothing more that appeals to everyone but their dirty histories—scandals, naked pictures and videos, among others. Now we know Richard Gomez has shared some of these nasty rumors (i.e. Ayala rumor, I don’t know if there’s any truth to it), but what I know is that Richard is a very talented actor, showed distaste over Boy Abunda (as evident through one of the episodes he hosted in GMA-7 against ABS-CBN’s The Buzz), lost in the senatorial race, happily married Lucy Torres and is one of Bench’s original endorsers. Now let me add to the list an actor who had allowed somebody else photographed him in his underwear while bathing with his pubic hair peeking for the world to see. See it for yourself…

Last Weekend

My friends, acquaintances, agents and colleagues were expecting me to have my camera with me when we all went to Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas last weekend. But to their disappointment, I left it home due to some inescapable reasons. I had that camera for 16 months already and I’ve always been consistent in capturing the bestest (Yes, there’s no such word!) moments in my life as I travel to not-so-faraway places I have never visited before. But, yes, there’s always a first time.

The Bonbon Series: Edouard George

I’ve seen him first through Fabe Clothing when he was featured as one of those fully-Photoshopped underwear models in Fabe Clothing’s Multiply site. Few months later, I’ve seen him again when it was reported that he’s joining the Cappuccinos. Recently, he attempted to make it through the Mossimo Bikini Summit. Now, Edouard George (previously Ted George) is nowhere to be found, and he’s still left, indeed, anonymous. He could be out there doing an indie film or some modeling stints, but whatever fate has in store for this guy, Simply Manila will be watching.

International Mister Gay 2009

I heard that the International Mr. Gay competition was recently held in Manila—its first since its conception in 2005 in Southern California. Several countries sent their delegates this year but Mr. Gay Switzerland Ricco Müller won the event, with Mr. Gay Australia and Mr. Gay USA in second and third, respectively. The event was held in Palacio de Maynila over a month ago already, but here are more pictures of the contestants for you to savor…

On Ginoong Filipinas: Less Forgettable Pinoy Men

It is when your computer starts getting slow when you will finally realized that thousands of files are stored in your PC or laptop. In my case, I have more than 3,000 of pictures waiting to be uploaded in Facebook, Friendster, Multiply, Flickr and even Simply Manila; more than 200 videos from music videos to TV shows (Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, Queer As Folk, among others), from indie films to porn, and a lot of other files that need to be saved somewhere else. So from today, let me start reducing the numbers of downloaded pictures that I don’t want to save somewhere else but here, by posting the best pictures I’ve seen from Ginoong Filipinas 2009. Currently, I have 282 downloaded pictures from this event alone (Thanks to Eliseo Gonzaga!), but I won’t be posting all since most of them are really just forgettable, so let me share 10 for now. Enjoy.

Random thoughts when I woke up this morning!

I woke up this morning at exactly 6:00am, and have this very good feeling that my day will be as good as it seems to be as the day progresses. I’m planning to visit Fitness First again today for the first time in more than 2 months, and I will officially try to break my single status as I think I’ve been in Singledom for too long already. I can’t stand to have sex with different people already. *LOL* The last time I had a boyfriend was also over 2 months ago, after that I was hooked up to my new job already—it killed most of my time except the weekends. But I spent most of my weekends with my friends partying, travelling and sometimes, just simply sleeping most of the time.

On new beginnings, promotion, hot men, etc

It wasn’t too long ago since I got promoted as a Subject Matter Expert (now acting as a Team Leader) and I couldn’t be prouder as this has been something I’ve been dreaming to happen to me before I eventually leave the call center industry in the not-so-distant future. The nature of the job is quite demanding, actually, and especially that we’re in Sales, stress is predictably doubled. As one of the youngest leaders in my company (I’m only 23 as of this date), I still feel there’s a lot to learn and to improve in terms of my leadership skill, but I have to start somewhere. As long as we’re consistently hitting the expectations, then I could definitely focus on other skills that I need improvement on.

So it was by choice that I stopped blogging for a month now, so I could gage my time well and eventually avoid stress. Now that I’m back with this post, then it only means I’ve learned either how to balance my time or how to get my job get done efficiently in the office.

I felt so mean last time when I posted some anonymous picture online in here, and wrote down some sarcastic words that I myself wouldn’t want to hear from other people. But whatever was the reason behind that, there would always be an explanation. But I think I was only pushed to my limits, I don’t usually start a fight, you know. Nevertheless, let’s see if karma bounces back.
