Masdan mo ang beauty koh, tatas ang kilay mwwwwwwooooooooooohhh!!!

Masaya ako!!!

Dahil finally, after much labor pains, ay nailuwal na rin ang show namin for Phil Fashion Week!!!


Para akong nabunutan ng tinik (pero siyempre di pa tapos ang lahat, may post mortem pa akong kailangang tapusin)

Pero for now, gusto ko munang magbunyi sa pamatay na mga damit na nilabas sa show:


Salamat sa mahusay na styling ni Raoul Ramirez at sa mga pamatay na disenyo ng aming Merch Team :) (Good job y'all!)

Sa ang aming Director, Cata Figuerroa, at sa guiding light ni Joey Espino:


Muk-ap with Lourd Ramos and team (Sorry wa pa picture)

Ang aking partner in crime for this project, Mikey

at ang buong Marketing Comms group (idamay na din natin ang Purchasing at ang HR C0mm Dev):


Nakaraos din, sa wakas...


With that, I leave you with a tumataginting na TSEH!


Wa man akong lablayp...

Taray ko naman! hahahaha

I am changing

I was reading this blog entry from Discreet Manila about naughty things one has done in Bed (the club). And I flashbacked to years past when, while reading blogs like these, i felt that, embarassingly, hint of INGGET!

I mean, how many times have I sat in front of my computer and thought... how come my life was not as exciting as that?

Well, a few months ago, I stopped thinking that. And I got, what I thought was, the exciting life of a single homo (as epitomized in Queer As Folk)

It was exciting! It made my blood boil!

It was crazy. Para akong rabbit na naka-drugs

Nakaka-adik pala siya. It's true pala what they say: "Once you pop, you can't stop!"

But after 15 crazy weeks I decided to stop.

Of course, the reason why I stopped is non-existent now. Nevertheless, may naidulot pa din siyang kabutihan which was to give me the conviction and self-respect I lost.

Well wala pa rin naman akong respeto sa sarili ko hanggang ngayon. (hahahaha) Binababoy ko man ang sarili ko, at least hindi ko pinapabayaang babuyin ako ng iba.

Tama na ang 15 weeks of a roller coaster ride.

I think I've had enough excitement to last me a lifetime.

Sabi nga ni Jennifer Hudson (pero mas orig si Jennifer Holiday) "I am Changing"


Para sa sarili ko...

At sa espesyal na taong maaring dumating sa buhay ko

...

OO, kinikilig ako ng konti.

Ewan ko lang talaga!

"Kumain ka na!" Nakabulyaw na naman si Inay habang nagbubukas ako ng Facebook.

Kadarating ko lang sa bahay at alam ng Nanay ko na dayukdok na ako sa gutom kaya pinagluto pa niya ako ng itlog para sa sandwich.

Pero kasalukuyan akong nagchecheck ng Facebook.

"Ano ba, ber! Kumain ka na!" Ang kulit ng nanay ko.

Nawala ang gutom ko sa nabasa ko sa Facebook.

"Sandali lang, nay...."

Nanginig ang buong katawan ko. nawala ang antok, pagod, at gutom. Para akong nanalambot at binagsakan ng kisam sa bigat ng naramdaman ko.

"Ber! Kain na! ano ba!?!"

Hindi ko napigilan ang sarili ko, "May ginagawa nga ako, eh! Bakit mawawala ba ang pagkain pag hindi ko siya kinain ngayon? Sabi na ngang sandali lang eh!"

SHET!

Sorry Inay, di ko sadyang bulyawan ka ng ganun... Pero kung alam mo lang inay kung ano ang binabasa ko sa harapn ko, maiintindihan mo:


Unti unting gumuguho ang mundo ko...

Hindi lang sya basta "Happy and Contented", Married pa daw siya.

Tang ina naman talaga oh.

TAE!

Simula nung tinawagan niya ako nung Bday ko, natuliro na ang mundo ko.

Oo, I wwas on a downward spiral. But I kinda picked myself up from there.

Unti-unti sinubukan kong ayusin ang sarili ko. Hanggang sa nagkita kami nung umuwi siya ng Pilipinas.

Oo, maraming bitterness at kung anu-anong kaasiman ang namagitan samin, pero malinaw ang agenda ko sa simula pa lang:

Gusto kong makipagbalikan.

Oo, desperate, so not me. But what can you do, right? Mahal mo. Sabi nga ni Sam, feelings yan, mahirap yan kontrolin.

Alam kong mejo malabo, pero hindi ako nawawalan ng pag-asa.

"Hindi ako naghahanap," sabi niya. "I'm not closing any doors for you."

That was two weeks ago, pagkabalik niya galing Japan.

To quote Izel, gusto kong sumigaw ng isang tumataginting na EWAN KO LANG, AH!?!?!

Food for your iPod

Sunod-sunod ang paglalabas ng mga ka-divahan ng mga bagong singles!!!

Inumpisahan na ni EXtina ng bonggang bbonggang "Not Myself Tonight" (originally posted here)

Sa mga hindi nakabasa, panoorin niyo dito:


Gusto ko pa siya himayin at mejo nadidisturb ako sa mga kinopyang eksena ng music video na ito... gagawan ko ng side by side pag may time na ako.

Ngaun naman si Beowulf! with "Why Don't You Love Me"


Can I just say na ang lapad ni bakla! hahaha

OK sana ang konsepto ng video niya pero mejo nahilo ako sa 60's look ng video... mejo masakit sa mata. OK sana kung dinaan na lang sa prod design, but did they really have to take it SO literally?

A more polished look would have been more 2010-friendly.

Not so crazy about the track. Again, OA na naman sa pagbirit ang babaeng puno ng balakang at ang melody... I don't know, not so catchy.

Pero I'm sure maraming Beyonce fans ang matutuwa sa kanta and I'm sure in a matter of weeks e marami ng kumakanta nyan sa kakalsadahan.

And NOW si Katy Perry!!!

Can I just say afetr her debut album and several collabs, I'm so excited to hear that she's coming out with something new!


Hmmmmm...

Not so happy with this track too. I feel like she somehow lost her edge.

I hope the album will have better tracks...

Excited na ako gumawa ng bagong store playlist! hahaha

Kwentong Booking 008: The end


I was asking a friend earlier, "How can you tell if you've been around too much?"

He said, "Kapag para ka ng furniture na wala ng pakiramdam"

"Have I been around too much?"

Bluntly, he said, "yup"

I had to ask, right?

After ng dalawang Booking 101 entries, guess I've already made my point.

I've screwed enough guys to last a lifetime.

But I guess it's time that I've had enough.

After all, sabi nga ni Kat: "no matter how many guys you screw, its still not HIM"

SO yeah.

It's time I face the truth. no one can replace him nor be anything close to what he is.

SO now I'll stick to my word

I will wait

I will be patient

After all, nothing that's worth getting comes that easily.

And he's definitely worth it.

Thinking Aloud 001: Vote for Ang Ladlad


Last Tuesday, on our way to Shang from a meeting, one of our Merch Managers asked us, "Sinong iboboto niyo?"

There's a general murmur of who's who and what not, etc. I blurted out, "Wiz ko knows, teh. Basta Ang Ladlad for Partylist"

As with all my faggy hirits, I was met with a generous round of laughter... TSE! mga vaklitang yun, seryoso kaya akoh!

Humirit ang isang bektas na kasama namin: "What does Ang Ladlad stand for ba?"

Siyempre, bibo ang sagot ko, parang beauty queen lang, "I wouldn't claim to be an expert on the Philippines' political LGBT Agenda but one their top priorities is passing the Anti-Dicrimination Bill!" (sabay smile, wave, at iyak! FLYING KISS! FLYING KISS!!!)

Ito ang buong plataporma ng mga baklita sa Ang Ladlad, kuha ka na lang ng magnifying glass dahil kaliitan ang picture:


"But I don't feel discriminated!" hirit ni bakla.

Sagot ako:

Well, una sa lahat, ang mga Pilipino ay hindi katulad ng mga Kano na OA ang galit sa mga bading. The Filipino people are more accepting if not tolerant of our differences. Pero even so, we have deep cultural (and RELIGOUS) roots kung saan nagmumula pa rin ang pasulpot sulpot na pang mamata (kung masyadong OA ang pang-aapi) sa mga bakla.

On a personal level, of course hindi mo masyadong ramdam na discriminated ka. That's because gays like you (and me - idamay ang sarili! hahaha) are privileged enough to have had a good education from prominent universities and was able to land respectable jobs in pretty big companies.

Pero hindi lahat ng mga bakla sa Pilipinas e kasing swerte natin. Tulad ng nakararaming Pilipino, marami ring mga bakla ang underpriviledged, under educated, at walang laban.

Marami na rin namang mga bakla sa Pilipinas ang may mga narating, napatunayan, at hinubog ang lipunang Pilipino. But don't ever think that that has changed the mindsets of people. After all, ang pang-aapi ay manifestations lang. Ang tunay na diskrimansyon ay nag-uugat sa isipan ng tao: mula sa pag-iisip na ang mga bakla ay MAS MABABA (in several ways) dahil sa ating sekswalidad.

Kaya kailangan natin ng backing ng batas, dahil unless maisulat sa papel na BAWAL at MASAMA ang diskrimansyon dahil sa kasarian o sekswalidad, mas mabibigyan ng proteksyon ang mga kapatid nating walang laban.

May humirit: Pero these days, hindi na naman uso ang gender discrimination...

YUN ANG AKALA MO!

Yung mga "mukhang lalaki" na mga bading e nakakalusot sa maraming bagay. Pero ang pinaka mainit sa mata ng lipunan ay ang mga mujer, trannies (no offense for the use of the word, generally pertaining to transgenders and transvestites), at mga butch lesbians

To site some examples:

UNA

Last year after magladlad ni Rustom now better known as Bebe ay nagounta siya sa isang bar sa Ortigas (I forgot which bar it was).

Hindi siya pinapasok dahil ayon sa staff at sa may-ari nilabag ni Bebe ang patakaran ng establisyemento sa pagsusuot ng damit babae sa kabila ng pagiging biological na lalake.

What the owners don't understand is that Bebeis not a drag queen (like me who puts on female clothes for amusement) but a transexual who sees himself as a woman... there's a difference. And not many people see that.

PANGALAWA

Matagal na ito, sa isa ding bar sa ortigas, nasa loob ng isang bar si Inday Garutay. Umorder ng inumin. Nilapitan siya ng may-ari, pinaalis at sinabihang, "You're money's not good here"

Well, napahiya ung may-ari dahil nagsampa ng kaso si Inday Garutay at nanalo si ateh.

PANGATLO

I have this friend who's a garments designer. He's in his 30's and is Avatar-like tall (around 6'++). He's super slender and wears his hair in a bob. In drag, she's a faboosh modelesque being who can easily give any model a ruin for their money.

He left his old company and was applying for another job in a slightly prominent clothing brand. The HR person bluntly told him that they "do not hire practicing homosexuals"

WTF right!?!?

HULI SA LAHAT

Well, may ilang mga entries na rin ako ng mga instances ng diskriminasyon dito sa Pilipinas.

Basahin dito at dito

Ang kabaliwan na ito ang pinakamatindi: CLICK CLICK CLICK!!!

Nilabanan ito ng matatapang nating kapatid at ni Risa Hontiveros (na isa pang dapat iboto) kaya naman hindi ito natuloy.

Hindi po ilusyon ang diskrimansyon sa Pilipinas.

Hindi po kathang isip ang mga panlipunang pangangailangan ng mga kapatid natin tulad ng pag-address sa HIV-AIDS, ang pag-aaruga sa mga inabandonang matatandang bakla, at ang pangha-harass ng mga pulis sa mga bakla.

By the time we got to Shang, our Merch Manager said: "Ano nga ang pangalan ng party list na yan?"

Ang Ladlad, No 89 sa balota.

"Sige, no 89. tatandaan ko yan"

Sino'ng bottom!?! HA!?!?!

I was posting a link to this blog on my FB wall when this security check notice popped out.

Di ko kinaya ang words na lumabas, napabuhakhak ako sa tawa:


HAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHA!!!

Di mo gets?

PWES!!! read my blog noh!

Dear Puck, you're melting my panties

Hindi ako nakakapanood ng Glee kapag regular airing nya sa ETC. Ganun talaga kapag isa kang aliping saguiguilid.

Kaya naman kaninang umaga ko lang napanood ang "Bad Reputation" episode.

Can I just say, kinilig ang lahat ng laman at taba sa katawan ko kay Puck:


Those biceps!

That square-cut, bad-ass "bubuntaling kita" face

The BROWN armpit hurr!!!!


Those rippling pecs!


Shet!

The wall-slamming, clothes-ripping, dirty-talking, soft S&M fantasies are running through my head...

...


...

Ok..

Just went my undies!

Booking 101: Buhay pokpok

Oo na. Pokpok ako.

San ka ba naman nakakita ng taong kung sino sino ang kinakalantari (o kung kani-kanino nagpapakalantari) at nakuha pang i-broadcast sa blog nya, right?

So I get around. Big deal.

It's just sex.

It's just another warm body to get me through the night.

It's just an orgasm.


I know sleeping with a different guy every other night is not healthy and it's not right

But it's exciting.

It's kinky.

And it's definitely several times better than feeling depressed, guilty, and pathetic for letting go of the love of your life

So, yeah, I'm a practicing slut: sleeping with different guys as often as I can.

And in the process I've also become a desensitized asshole: not texting after fucking, forgetting the name, the face, the number.

After all, I'm not looking for a boyfriend; just some amusing distractions.

Can someone please kill this Princess person?

Narinig ko lang sya ulit this morning sa isang Tricycle na may basag na sound system at binobroadcast ang ka-jologan nya sa buong street namin:


Gusto ko silang pagsamahin ni Justin Bieber, isabit sa space shuttle at ipatapon sa Pluto.

OK, maybe she's a nice girl. Whatever. Sana itigil na nya ang pambabaoy ng mga maayos na kanta. I mean, alam ko lahat tayo e gusto lang naman kumita ng anda, pero teh, sana naging pokpok ka na lang! marami pa sigurong natuwa seio!

Christina is back and I'm Lovin it!

OH YEAH!!!

Christina's back and this time, it's all POP!

Kinda reminiscent of the sounds from the Dirrty album but much more polished.

It's also nice to hear that she's not belting out every single note.

I just listened to the entire track this morning and I swear it's gonna be my ringtone. hahahaha!

I'm lovin the sound. Makes me wanna get up and dance.

Check out the video:


Not so sure about how the video was made.

it's VERY reminiscent of Madonna's Human Nature video:


And George Michaels's Freak (sans the futuristic touch):


With elements from Beyonce's Greenlight (hello ballet pointe stilettos!)


But I like it nonetheless. :)

Can't wait for her new album!!!!

huweeeee!!!

I heart you Eugene Domingo

After Kimmy Dora, Star Cinema banks on the comedienne's pull and produces this comedy flick called "Here comes the bride"


The trailer has got me rolling on the floor laughing! hahahaha!

Tangna ang kulit ni Angelica sa "apir apir apir" part! winner!!!!

It may potentially fall short of expectations... judging from teh plot, walang kuwenta ang istorya nito malamang and it's gonna be the comic skits that will probably carry the crowd throughout the entire movie.

Well, I'm praying they have more of those para naman sulit ang panonood ng sine :)

TARALETS FROGLETS WATCH!

Hanong kaguluhan itech!?!?!

With FB's popularity, It's only a matter of time before the masses of the online community migrate to the hottest social networking site.

As with all trends, they eventually trickle down to the masses in which they lose their cultural currency depreciates leaving the innovators to seek new trends in which they can claim as their own and make (for the time-being) exclusively theirs.

In gay speak: nakakalokang ka-jologan ang dumapo sa FB! Hindi ba't ganyan na ganyan ang mga kachorvahan ang naglipana sa Friendster dati?



ANUBA!

Ang jologs ah!

Mabaog ang maglagay ng ganyang kaputahan sa profile ko!

lekat!

Booking 101: The backgrounder


Noong sinumulan ko ang "Kwentong Booking" series of blogs ko, a good friend called me (as in tumawag si bakla) and said, "Hey, I'm reading your blog. This kwentong booking... Are you sre about this? I mean, are you ready and prepared for the repercussions? ANYBODY will be able to read this you know?!"

Matatag ang paninindigan ko: "I know and, well, you know me, I don't care what people are gonna say."

Noong nasa 1st year high school ako, naging teacher ko Sir Manny sa history. Sa isa sa mga lessons namin, may nasabi siyang hanggang ngayon e naalala ko pa rin: (paraphrased)

Ayoko sa lahat ng sinungaling. Kung may gagawin kang bagay, siguraduhin mong kaya mo siyang panindigan. Kung hindi mo kayang panindigan ang ginawa mo, mabuti pang wag mo na lang siyang gawin.

I'm just writing for the sheer pleasure of putting my thoughts into something more or less tangible than thoughts. Let's not over analyze.

If you don't like what I'm writing then read my blog.

If you don't like what I'm doing, well... sabi nga ni Bryan sa Queer as Folk, "Unless it's you I'm fucking, then it's none of your business" (Of course, kung close tayo, I'm open tto hearing your thoughts)

Like you, dear reader, who reads my blog for entertainment... I, too, seek some solace from the daily grind and life's consistent trepidations.

And that's what all this booking is all about.

It's all bodies, motion, ejaculation... a brief intensity where for a short time, I'm enjoying something that is not totally complicated.

It's all entertainment. It's like watching TV wherein after watching one episode, it's off to the next one.
