On the new FB plague: The Hubaderos

Nagkalat sila sa Planet Romeo

Nagsisimula na silang dumami sa Downelink.

Ang hinid ko kinakaya ay ang biglaang bugso ng kanilang dami sa Facebook!

Sila ang mga Hubadero!

Mga becky na walang ibang malay gawin kundi ibandera ang kanilang masarap na kahubdan...

Maraming silang sub-species na nagva-vary depending on the extent and manner of skin exposure:

  • Wholesome Hubadero - Nagkataon lang na nakuhanan siya ng mahusay na larawan sa isang sitwasyon kung saan katanggap-tanggap ang paghuhubad eg: shots sa beach, sa pool, sa kwarto na bagong gising, etc. Madalas, mababatid din sa mukha nya ang pagka-candid ng larawan. Wala (masyado) bahid ng malisya o kalansahan eg: naka-smile o NR lang ang fez. Masaya siyang tingnan. Hindi masyado malaswa. Masarap pagnasaan


  • Exhibitionist Hubadero - Sinadya niyang kunan ang sarili na nakahubad. Ang larawan niya madalas ay self-portrait. Ang mga larawan niya ay kuha sa mga sitwasyon na hindi naman masyado kinakailangan ang paghuhubad. Kadalasan ang mga larawan nya ay kinuha sa harap ng salamin, sa loob ng dressing room, sa kwarto, sa banyo. Madalas tanggal talaga ang top (minsan pati pantalon pero may boxers o undies) o nakataas lang ang shirt para ma-expose ang mga nagsusumigaw na pecs, abs, biceps, etc. (kung meron). Ang pose nila ay madalas pa-sexy (taas kamay kita kili-kili) or pa-macho (nagfe-flex ng muscles) or pa-mihn (pa-angas effect) pa-libog (nakakunot ang noo, sabay kagat labi) or pwede din pa-tweetums (sweet smile, napaka-bottomelya flores).

  • Professional Exhibitionist Hubadero - Pretty much the same as above, naka-upgrade ng konti bilang may production value ang hubadero pics nya: professional ang cam na ginamit, nailawan ng mahusay, nasa maayos na studio... Either marami siyang photographer friends o mahilig syang sumama sa mga open shoot. Pero hubad pa din, brief lang din ang suot. Pero maganda ang pic, kinareer!

  • Nakakatakot na Hubadero (aka baka hipon) - Ito yung mga taong malakas ang loob maghubad pero walang mukhang maipakita. Kesyo "discreet" daw sila, or tinatago nila ang kanilang identity, or baka lang sadyang PANGIT sila. Hahaha. Either way, ang mga nakakatakot na hubadero ay walang kahihiyan kung magpakita ng laman. Minsan abot na hanggang noches buenas!!! Basta wiz fezlak pasok sa banga.

  • Malansang hubadero - Siya yung wala ng tinago. Inaakala niyang tanga ang kanyang market at mahina ang imagination, so ilabas na daw lahat ng kayang ilabas. Madalas wala siyang suot DAKOT DAKOT lang ang drama. Minsan kung naka brief man, ang suot nama'y puti... masikip... at basa...


NOTE: hindi ko po pag-aari ang mga pics. they are just random photos I found in DL, PR, and other social networking sites. no offense to the people whose pics I used. I blurred out the faces to protect their indentities. KYEMBOT

Wala naman masama kung magpakita ng katawan paminsan minsan especially when you have something to show naman.

There's nothing wrong with being sexy

There's nothing wrong with being confident

Kung model ka talaga, e walang masama dun bilang yun ang kabuhayan mo.

But there's a FINE line between being naturally confident & sexy and selling yourself as a piece of meat.

If you are sporting any of the above-mentioned types of hubadero photos and you:
  • have more than 4,000++ friends on FB,
  • have more than 1 account kasi hindi magkasya ang mga friends na gusto kang i-add
  • have tons of people on your friends list sporting the same nekkid pic
  • don't even KNOW 1/4 of your friends....

Ay teh, wag na tayo maglokohan, karnihan na ito.

And it's kinda irksome for me to find profiles (even friends) who practice this in FB.

Let's just call it waht it is, this is short of turning FB into the new PR and DL where people meet to hook up.

I'm not saying that this is wrong (but it's not exactly right either). We're all free to use the platform in any way we want. I just feel like there should be a more decent way of doing it (ie: keep your REAL friends on a different FB account and your hook-ups in a different account)

Minsan dumarating Siya


Hindi mahirap humanap ng booking.

ang panandaliang aliw

ang mabilisang pagpaparaos
na pagdating ng umaga ay makakalimutan na.

Hindi mahirap humanap ng date

yung kasama mo manood ng sine

yung kakulitan sa telepono

na pagkatapos ng ilang linggo ay mawawalan na ng gana
at hahanap na ng bagong lalandiin

Madalas kong sabihing, "Lalake lang yan. Titi lang yan. Hindi ka mauubusan ang titi sa mundo." (ambastos ko lang, noh?)

PERO

Minsan may makikilala ka na:

magpapangiti sa iyo

mapapatawa ka na para bang hindi na darating ang bukas

masarap kasama sa kahit anong lakad

hindi mo makuhang pagsawaan at kung pwede lang e gusto mong makita sa araw araw na ginawa ng Diyos

kapareho mo ng pinagdaanan at pananaw sa buhay

naiintindihan mo, as in same wavelength

yung hindi mo makuhang landiin kasi nire-respeto mo siya

yung sobra sobra ang paghanga mo, gusto mong sumugod sa ospital magpa-blood test para lang mapatunayan na at masabi na, "Taena, oo, kung san san ako napdpad dati pero, heto! heto! malinis pa rin ako."

hindi perpekto, pero para sa iyo, ok sya, para sa iyo saktong sakto siya

Minsan...

Dumarating sya

* * *

Hindi ako magmamalinis. Hindi ako magpapanggap.

Hindi ako nahirapan humanap ng booking.

PERO

Simula noong naging single (ulit) ako, ngayon lang ulit ako kinilig ng ganito.

:)

IKAW

Kahit na di mo alam, at kahit di mo napapansin, salamat pa din.

Nalaman kong tao pa rin pala ako.

Nalaman kong puno man ng lamat ang puso ko, gumagana pa rin pala siya.


Sa hindi inaaasahang pagtatagpo ng mga mundo
May minsan lang na nag-dugtong, damang-dama na ang ugong nito
Di pa ba sapat ang sakit at lahat na hinding-hindi ko ipararanas saýo
Ibinubunyag ka ng iyong matang sumisigaw ng pag-sinta

Ba’t ‘di pa patulan ang pag-suyong nag-kulang?
Tayong umaasang hilaga’t kanluran
Ikaw ang hantungan at bilang kanlungan mo
Ako ang sasagip saýo

Saan nga ba patungo, nakayapak at nahihiwagaan
Ang bagyo ng tadhana ay dinadala ako sa init ng bisig mo
Ba’t di pa sabihin ang hindi mo maamin
Ipauubaya na lang ba ‘to sa hangin
‘Wag mong ikatakot ang bulong ng damdamin mo
Naririto ako’t nakikinig saýo

Pagmama-asim: NEUTRALIZED

Natutuwa talaga ako kapag dumarami ang taga-subaybay ng blog ko.

Katulad ngayon, napansin ko na 15 na pala ang followers ko (i love you all!)

Tanghali kahapon ng napag-alaman ko na nadagdagan pa ang mga masugid na mambabasa.

Our HR called my attention because of my "Pagmama-asim" post. (To those who have not read it, too bad. Just PM me though if you're curious about what I'm talking about *wink*)

Apparently, follower na rin ng blog ko ang big bosses namin. Salamat po ng marami sa pagsubaybay :)

Yun nga lang, mejo hindi ata sila natuwa sa mga sinabi ko about my work...

Those who have read the said post would know that despite the obvious uncontainable frustration I did not mention any names NOR did I mention any details on what exactly it is that we do.

Nakakahiya naman kung malaman ng maraming tao ang mga kababalaghang ginagawa nila di ba?

Nevertheless, long story short, I've already removed the said post.

If you haven't read it yet, sorry na lang.

Kung curious ka pa rin at close tayo, I'm just a text away ;) Kape tayo, pag-usapan natin.

For now, I'll park my thoughts about the matter. But I wanna end the discussion on the matter with this:


Yun lang!

Diet Fail Part... (um, nevermind)

When I started the week, I told myself "No more coffee! Bawas ng sugar intake! Bawas ng carbs (at hindi na ako nakain ng kanin sa lagay kong ito)"

BUT NO!

Kanina, after office, di ko na napigilan ang cravings ko. Ayan, Berry McFlurry at Fries!!! (Sugar+carbs+cholesterol) Jusko, baboy lang:


Although Kat said (this is totally NOT verbatim):

Kapag yan na yung pinakamasayang parte ng araw mo, teh dedma na!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy

Ang lungkot lang.

Kung iisipin mo, sa 9 na oras na binuhos ko sa trabaho, ni isa sa mga bagay na natapos ko, hindi man lang sapat para bigyan ako ng sense of accomplishment.

I swear, magtatayo na lang ako ng parlor na nagiging comedy bar sa gabi.

CHOS!

Pagmama-asim: a work-related post


As a general rule, I refrain from blogging about work because (1) it's not really very professional and (2) I have a life after work.

But for the past few months, the work atmosphere have been REALLY shitty to the point that some office friends and I go out almost every night just to blow off steam. The stress of getting through the daily grind started creeping into our personal lives.

There was just too much shit that it can't be contained from 9am to 6pm.

It started when some of our best people started leaving one by one. Management brought in new people to take their place. And that's when pretty much everything became confusing, redundant, and altogether frustrating.

I'm not complaining because I'm not used to stress. HUH! Not at all! I eat stress for breakfast!

Stress I can handle, but INCOMPETENCE is a new realm altogether.

We used to have our own squabbles over work. It was stressful. It was a bit frustrating. But it was the kind of stress that's expected of work: because people knew what they were doing, everyone has their own opinion and view on things, it's all a matter of settling differences and agreeing to disagree sometimes.

But this new brand of stress is the complete opposite. We are consistently berated by mindless meddling.

My job is made more difficult because I have to entertain pointless tasks from someone who's supposed to know BETTER. We are given a team member who does not know what he's supposed to do, who does not know the meaning of team work, and who is, quite frankly, not qualified for his position. And our team is flying without a pilot.

In short we're all over the place and we're on our own.


For a while I thought I can ignore it.

For a while I thought I can go on with my work and just put the unwanted people and their shitty output out of my head.

But like an annoying fly, they fly in your face, land on your food and just refuse to die.

It's bad enough that I can't ignore them, I have to carry the load of making sure they don't fuck up my brand.

It's difficult, but more than that, it's just plain unfair.

How come these people are getting PAID when other people have to do their job?

How come they have been given positions when it's obvious they are not qualified for it?

Haaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy....

...

In the end, I just think to myself that I will come out of this ordeal smarter, tougher, and altogether much better.

After all, it's not my job to hire and train smart people. That's HR's job! (hahaha)

And quite frankly, I can't help it of some people are mediocre.

The only thing I can control is how I do my job (which, not to be "mayabang", I think I'm doing a pretty decently)

Coping with this added hurdle will only make me better.

As for the problem people, they will always remain as they are: mediocre.

Human Beatbox cutie


A friend showed this to me a couple of weeks ago.

Ang lupet lang ni koya:


Concept-wise, though, it's not something entirely new. Remember Youtube sensation, Sam Tsui?

But it's the "beat box" vocals that's REALLY AWESOME!

It also doesn;t hurt that he's kinda cute! teeehee!

Dating Skills: EPIC FAIL


I came over his place. It was a REALLY nice apartment-ish condo unit that's on the ground floor right beside the pool.

He was cooking dinner: Nilagang Baboy (yuck!).

He invited me to eat but I said I don't eat that stuff.

He had that Middle-Eastern look going on and a twang that's distinctly AmBoy.

We were watching The Soup on TV and we were laughing our asses off.

"I like your sense of humor," he said. "I mean, y'know, it takes brains to be witty."

I know, right?

He invited me for a drink but I declined. "I'm still nursing a hang-over," I said. He poured me a glass of white white, anyway.

Then all of a sudden we're hearing "Commander" blast through the TV speakers. IT WAS THE REPLAY OF MISS UNIVERSE!!!! eeeeeeeeeeppppppp!!!

He immediately plopped on the ottoman beside me.

Parade of National Costumes.

I was like, "What's up with Belgium's tennis dress?" and he's like, "Jamaica's hot, man!"

He sees me staring at him weirdly and he said, "Hey look, I'm not saying I'm BI coz I'm not confused. I mean, y'know if I gotta choose between a hot ass girl, and a hot ass man, I'll definitely go for the hot ass dude!"

Ok... noted.

I was trying NOT to drink the wine so I was drinking water in between sips. He, on the other hand, is already on his 2nd glass. "What's up with dat gown?!"

"It's New Zealand," I said

"Yeah, if you were in new Zealand, what would you wear to represent your culture?"

"Uh... grass and sheep?"

...and we burst in laughter.

"Man, we're so gay!" he said

TOTALLY!

We got to the top ten.

We still haven't eaten dinner

He started ranting about random stuff:

Racism, how it affected him when he was in the states. How Filipinos needed to experience that to be able to be proud of their own culture...

How the Filipinos have no strong cultural identity...

The stae of homosexuality in Philippines, how it's better and how it's worse compared to the States...

...

Oh god... This date feels like writing an essay

He was trying too hard to be smart and opinionated that he's starting to contradict himself.

We got to the top five.

He finished off my wine coz I refused to finish all of it.

During commercial breaks, he'd go to his laptop and check his messages in PR. "This is why I like being single... you don't have to hide anything."

It's almost 11:30 at night.

"Dude, I don't know how Mexico won with that answer," It trailed off, I was no longer paying attention.

I was TOTALLY getting bored. I already know Venus' answer by heart. The show's no longer as exciting as it was the first time.

And our conversation is steadily going down the drain.

In my head I was thinking, "Dude, I have to go home sometime, y'know"

"And the fourth runner up is..."

"Oh man, that 'major, major...' thing was just ridiculous..."

JUSKOPO hanggang kailan kami mag-gigigian!?!?!

...

"I mean, all the people talking about dat, I mean why can they se it's like Pacquiao vs Marquez in Las Vegas..."

...

Not making any sense

...

I wanna go home na

"I mean her answer's awful but, y'know, what she did was not easy..."

JUSKO TAMA NA ANG GIGIAN!

"So, do you wanna make-out or what?"

---------------------------------------------------------------------

PS: mejo matagal na ito nangyari. bawal ang judgemental, kei?

Woah-uh-uh-uh-oh oh woah

LSS ako sa kantang to since last Thursday night!


Woah-oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh woah

On Dating


It just hit me that it's been quite some time since I went out on a date.

Not the booking kind of date but a date DATE: the no sex (yet), getting to know you, dinner-coffee, let's do something fun and crazy kind of a date.

Then I think of:

  1. The amount of time spent on prettifying, talking, and bonding with someone who I probably will get bored with in a few weeks
  2. The amount of money spent on dates (I mean, hello, the food, drinks, etc etc)
  3. The effort poured on trying to impress someone, picking the most impressive outfit, etc.

I'm NOT desperate naman to jump into a new relationship.

And I'm actually enjoying this rediscovered freedom.

I realized, I'd rather buy a nice pair of shoes instead!

Commuter Cutie 016: Labor Day cutie

Tumambad sakin ang magandang pecs ni koya pagsampa ko sa train.

Naka-white sweat shirt sya at white jeans. JUSKO, muntik ko na syang kalabitin at sabihang, "Bobby Dacer, isdatchu?"

Umupo siya at pa-demure naman akong tumayo sa tapat nya!

CHING!


Upon closer inspection, hindi pala siya GANUN ka-cute.

Probably because ang laking minus point n all-white outfit nya at mejo mukha syang haggard na haggard bilang alas-ocho pa lang ng umaga.


Pero ang ganda lang talaga ng katawan ni kuya.

Hindi ko lang makuhanan ng ayos bilang balot na balot sya. Pinagmuni-munihan ko pa ng husto kung kakagat sya kung paghubarin ko siya ng saplot


Meron syang slightly malansang arrive (if u catch my drift)

Pero may angggulo naman syang masarap halikan

Clown

On my way to the loo one morning...

Passed by an officemate on the way

She stopped me, "Good morning Ola!"

NOTE: I am not a morning person. "hey..."

"Ola, alam mo ba..."

I lost her after four words.

Officemate was ranting about work

KPI...

COG...

Targets...

Production...

Something else I can no longer recall...

NOTE: attention span very short, must always get to the point. "Teh, anong gagawin ko?"

"Patawa ka naman, oh!"

...

"huh?"

...

"Sige na, say something funny."

...

Hmmmm... "something funny?"
