Halloween Beksena Part 1: Tatot's Trick of Treat

Yeah, so I haven't been actively blogging for the past... um... 2/3 weeks?

After a week-long Breathing and Meditation Workshop, had amazingly busy weekends what with volunteering for Yoga For Life's Open Photoshoot and... yes, you guessed it prepping for Halloween!

For the past few weeks your beckness went on a trip to Divisoria (with experts guidance, of course, otherwise baka hindi na ako nakauwi. hahahaha. chos lang), spent weeknights sewing, while juggling equally brain-draining work.

Buti na lang may yoga, I don't know how I could've survived the past week.

ANYWHO!

Feeling ko ito na yun, eh! Ito na ang culmination ng aking pagiging AWOL sa blogosphere...

HALLOWEEN!!!

This year I had two Halloween costumes for 2 Halloween Occassion: (1) Office Trick Treat w/ Tatot, and (2) Black Party Beksena

DISNEY PRINCESS


Ironically, the office theme is very feminine! SHET!!! I soooooooo wanted to do Ursula


or Snow White's Evil Queen:


BUT since there will be children around (not to mention Tatot) ayoko sanang gulantangin ang childhood nila with a Glamified Draga Look.. So instead I decided to look a bit more on the mannish side:


The only make-up I have on are in my bilbil to create an illusion of abs! hahahaha (madaming nabulag yan! wag apihin! lol)

AND LOOK! sobrang cute namin ni Tatot:


This is actually the first time in a long time that I had any respectable public torso exposure so ayan.. pagbigyan na, kei?

I was on full Mother-mode last friday since bitbit ko si Tatot sa office. Lumabas ang aking motherly gene lol

Supposed to walk in the office in super cute matching outfits:


Kaso nasa Buendia flyover pa lang kame, sumuka na si Tatot :(

HOW VERY UNFASHIONABLE!!!

Pero Zen mode tayo... actually nakakaawa ung bata kasi lupaypay siya pagod... at umaga pa lang yun ah!

So ayan, May bitbit akong batang basa ng suka sa gitna ng Ayala. Buti na lang bukas na ang Starbucks 6750 so nakapagbihis pa si Tatot. Naka-recover naman sya agad, CHocolate Cake lang ang katapat. lol



Sobrang excited si tatot pumunta sa office, alam mo naman ang bata, very eager with new experiences :D KYUT KYUT KYUT!!!!

He was even showing me his new dance moves (Teach me How To Dougie) that he wante dto show everyone in the office. hahahahaha!!

He was sooo well-behaved too (well at least nung umaga). One of my officemates drew a dragon for him and he just sat there coloring it. :)

Photo and drawing by Rozzaine Bucu (SOBRANG GALING MO TEH!)

Obviously, he was also excited to put on his costume... so we dressed up at aorund 11am... then at lunch time, Tatot tells me, "Bey, gusto ko ng Chicken Joy..." PATAY! The nearest Jollibee is outside our building along Ayala Avenue!!!

Deadma na! GOW!

Rampa kaming dalawa ni Tatot in the middle of the day in our costumes! hahahaha!

It was a challenge TRYING to work on an urgent prezo while Tatot is around. Obviously, all my attention was on him.

Here's some more photos from last Friday:



Tatot was playing hide and seek with the devil guard! lol



It's not a Kid's Party w/o Jollibee! The funny thing is that they look sooooo much alike! lol


Bad Parenting: I let Tatot eat his Sundae. tsk tsk tsk! LOOK AT THAT! takaw!



Later towards the end of the day tatot found some playmates and they spent the whole afternoon running around, rolling on the floor, screaming, playing hide and seek!

JUSKO!

Hindi ako yung naglaro pero nakaka-ubos ng energy ang magbantay ng mga bata.

Despite that It was sooo much fun spending an entire day with Tatot :D Lakas maka-GV ng kids. Iba ang energy nila. Nakakatuwa lang

BTW, I kinda had my moment with Jollibee... sorry I can't help it, he had such an infectious smile lol

Abangan ang Halloween Beksena Part 2!!!

SUSUNOD!

You Already Moment

Monday morning last week.

As useless, Dawn of the Walking Dead ang drama ko bilang wala ako sa wisyo hanggang di pa ako nakakapag-almusal.

Ang kauna-unahang goal ko pagkatapak ko ng Enterprise ay bumili ng Soy Milk at saging. Simple lang, yun lang.

Naka-shades, bumibirit si Mareng Beyonce sa tenga ko, at nagpupumigil kumendeng habang naglalakad papuntang Mini Stop, nakita kong may kaunting kaguluhan sa lobby at may pila ng mga bilat sa isang open area kung saan may dalawang matangkad na Menchu Lauchengco ang kaway ng kaway...

"AY!!!! May mudehl!!!" naisip ko!

Shet buena mano!!!

Nung napalapit na ako, napansin kong si AKI pala at si FABIO ung mga mudehl!!!

Kabog!!!

So mega kaway sa sambayanan ang dalawa at nung napatapat ako sa kanila eh sabi ni Aki, "Good Morning! Kumusta?"

So may I, "Hi Aki!" with all my becky enthusiasm!

ABA! at ang mga nyorlat na nakapila eh may I laugh!!! MGA EKLATERANG PACHIDERM!

Dare-darecho ako sa aking rampa ng biglang sabi nila Aki, "Come here! come here!"

HOMAYGAAAAADDDDDDD!!!

NIYAYA NILA AKO!!!!

TAKE THAT!!! IN YOUR UGLY PECHAY FACES, you judgmental bilatchibelles you!!!

Kinamayan ako ni Aki, "Kumusta na?" he said in his weird accent.

Sobrang natuliro ako sa kagwapuhan eh ang nasabi ko na lang ata eh, "e-hehhehe-ishokernomon teehee ditonakowerq heehee evertayzeeenggg naekengeyen hee hee hee!!!"

Then there was a bit more laughing a ot smiling, hand shaking

And this promo guy shouted, "o, picture! picture!"

And in my head I was going, "NYORTANGINAMELLES!!! UNIVERSE I LABYU!!!!"

Then naisip ko.... "POTAH NALULUSAW NA ANG BRIEF KO!!! BASANG BASA NA AKO!!!!!!"

sabay... CLICK!



At HAYUN!!!! INAKBAYAN AKO NI AKI!!! waaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!

Masdan ang di mapigilang kileeeeeggggg ng bakla sa picture sa itaas!!!

Tangna ang kintab lang ng mukha ko. Tingnan mo naman yang noong yan, parang nilagyan ng floor wax tapos binunot ng mga 3 pasada! NKKLK!!!

And then lumapit sakin yung promo guy, gave me a leaflet and said "Sir mamaya pong hapon nasa Facebook na po yung photo niyo...

At heto sya (yung guy sa gitna)



Napatitig na lang ako, mumbling "ah... ok.. ok..." habang naglalakad palayo

JUSKOPO!!!

QUOTANG QUOTA NA!!!

NYETA KA ANNE CURTIS!!!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA!!!!



Nyortanginemelles!!! Pak na pak!!!

Suta ka Anne Curtis!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Wala kang kahihiyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnn!!!!

Kabog na kabog lang sa pambababoy ng sarili!!!

Prepping for the National Beki Holiday... HALLOWEEN

Nyeta mga bakla, kala niyo joke joke lang itong pagda-DRAGA na ito!

Susme, iang linggo na akong unti-unting nagpupundar para sa kaisa-isang okasyon sa buong taon kung saan LEGAL ang lumabas, magwala, at magmukang pokpok, weirdo, or both at the same time!!!

Since gusto ko SURPRISE ang revelation ko sa halloween e sneak peek lang muna ng ilan sa mga kaputahang pinagkakaabalahan ko lately:



Di ko na nga maintindihan kung anong uri ng pagkukubli ang gagawin ko sa mga yan at ang dyahe naman kung masightsung ang mga itey ni mudaraka!!!

Magulat sya na malandi pa sa poklay na makati ang anak niya! hahahahaha



O di ba? matakot ka sa eyelashes na pwede mo ng ibenta sa Baclaran bilang pamaypay! bwahahahaha!!!

Excuse Letter ni Mother Vekler

OK I'm just gonna do a quick one while the bosses are not in the area :p

I wasn't able to update The Becky Broadcast last week and it looks like I won't be able to post anything new this week as well.

The Mother Vekler doesn't have the time, my becklings! My hands are so full and sorry to disappoint you, they are not busy from all that hand jobs :( lol

Anyway, last week, I took this Breathing and Meditation Workshop with The Art of Living Foundation through Yoga For Life. What? Me? Meditation?

Sounds crazy right? Anyway, I know this stuff is waaaayyy too serious for The Becky Broadcast so I'll prolly write about it in my other blog, Pieces of Wisdom and Shit which contains all my reflections (whenever I feel like writing about them anyway)

It was a very enlightening course. Definiely something worth taking and I prolly would take Part 2 as soon as it's up.

But I digress... point of the matter is, the workshop took most of my free time during the weekday that I don;t have time to blog na. It ate up the good half of my Saturday so... there



Those are my classmates and our teacher, Tessa Celdran, and Charmaine Cu-Unjieng President of Yoga For Life. photo by Duds Ignacio


This has been a VERY busy weekend (but enjoyed every single minute of it). There was yoga after Meditation Workshop...

Then I had to buy DRAG STUFF for Halloween



Then Sunday I had to do my weekly grooming (Yes, I am high maintenance like that)

And make some QT with my mother and Tatot so we shopped for a bit

Then it was off to RCBC for Next To Normal (Which I will also write about separately)



Then We had to fly to Philamlife Theater @ UN Ave for Polarity by Polecats Manila feat Parkour Philippines and Manila Symphonic Orchestra (which deserves it's own post as well)


That's Duds, Me, Kit, Sally, and Winlove


There's Happy right there who was MIA in the previous group photo

And before I knew it it was already 11pm and my eyes are begging for sleep.

That weekend didn't feel like a weekend at all.

Anyway, I promise to catch up on my blogging this week... hopefully. Coz my schedule's filling up so fast. gaaaaahhhhh.

Anyway, do LIKE The Becky Broadcast on FB for shorter more frequent updates :)

That's it for now.

Commuter Cutie Disaster

I already tweeted and posted about this on FB yesterday (again, noh, if you missed it, kse i-LIKE na ang FB Page ng The Becky Broadcast!) but it deserves its own post.

So anyway, kahapon nakasakay ako ng jeep omw to MRT. Shempre ever on the lookout si watashi for Cutie Patooties! lol  (parang ambastos pag ako nagsabi lol)

Nasight ko yung koya na nasa bandang tapat ko, mejo chinez ang arrive, makinis naman at may appeal (on his own way). hindi sya, like, ABSOLUTELY cute pero actually maypagka-payatot siya. Pero alam mo yung pag hinainan ka na ng snacks sa harapan mo nakakairita pag nagpa-virgin at tumanggi

So di ba? keri na, go na! Di ko naman sho-syotain eh lol!

Nilabas ko ang phone ko.

Nagpanggap akong serious, mega kunot noo at may tinetext kunwari.

I put my phone on silent mode para sure! Turned on the camera.... aimed... and CLICK!

BIGLANG NAGFLASH YUNG CAMERA PHONE!!!!

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Feeling ko namula ako sa khihiyan!

Sobrang lakas pa naman ng flash tapos yung katapat ko... NA PANGIT ang sama ng tingin sakin!!!

Gusto ko sanag hiritan ng "EXCUSE ME NOH, para naman pagnasaan kita!"

Pero unti unti na akong nanliit sa kinauupuan ko.

Ang daming napatingin sakin! DYAHEEE!!!

So ayun... pumara na lang ako at bumaba kahit malayo pa T_______________T

BWISIT!

Ang masama pa nyan, ito lang ang nakuha kong pic:



Ang pangit pa ng itchura nung chinitong payatot sa shot na to. HMF!

UGH! FAIL!

Commuter Cutie 044: Bad Ass Cutie by Agent M

May mga mihn na mas tumataas ang market value kase may Bad Boy appeal, alam niyo yun? 

Parang si Joross Gamboa, nung bigla syang nag-resurface hunkified and hairy:


SHET! nalusaw ang panty ko dun!


Yung ganyan, may angas, yung tipong isasalya ka muna sa pader, igagapos yung mga kamay mo, bago ka gagahasain at pagpapakasasaan!!!

BWAHAHAHAHHA

Yung tipong after ng JUG e feeling mo e ang dumi-dumi mon tao tapos kakapit ka sa sinasandalan mong pader tapos hihikbi habang dahan dahang bumababa!

Ganyan, Lorna Tolentino lang ang peg:





HOMEYGEHD! Kung si Joross din lang ang mangre-rape sa akin e POTASHET!!! SIGE BABUYIN MO ANG PAGKATAO KOOOOHHHH!!!!! GHEYM!!!



Susme, wait, napa-sudden gush of wetness akyembang ditey!!!BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Anyway, itong si Agent M ay may napasakay sa jeep isang beses kasama ang isang affam bilat namin na guest, at ayun, na-sight nya iteklaboom:



Shempre si affam bilat e na-krung krung sa hobbies namin davah? lol

Tattoo pa lang may angas na! iba din ang appeal ng mihn na markado, noh?



Damang dama ko ang kilig sa pwet nitong si Agent M habang kumukuha ng pichurs bilang knowsline ni watashi na bet na bet niya ang ganyang mga may Shawarma Flavor! lol




O di ba? May potensyal!!! Mejo adik-adik ang peg ni koya pero well, kung ganyan ang taste mo di ba, magagawa ko... lol



In ferness naman kay koya may angking sarap!!! Ruma-Rock Star ang appeal!

Ichurang titira muna kayo ng drugs.... bago ang tirahan bonding... :p lol



Ang takot ko lang sa ganyan e baka after ka gahasain e gilitan ako sa leeg at punuin ang katawan ko ng coccaine bago i-smuggle papuntang kung saang liblib na panig ng Pilipinas!

Other than that... ay, GHEYM! Isalya mo ako sa pader!

CHOZ!

I Wanna be a Pole Diva

Alam naman nating lahat na pangarap kong magtayo ng Parlor na nagiging Comedy Bar sa gabi...

Pero since wala pa akong kaalaman sa pag-aayos ng buhok at ang tanging muk-ap na alam ko ay pang-DRAGona, ipa-park ko muna yang pangarap na yan at pagtuunan muna natin ng pansin yung mga mejo mas abot kamay...

Tulad ng maging isang pole dance drag performer!!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!



Well, y'all know the first few times that I tried Pole dancing with the Polecats, I've blogged about it HERE and has been posting about it non-stop on Tumblr and Twitter, and Facebook....

It's such a fun experience that when they opened up an an actual workshop in August, I didn't have any qualms about enrolling!!!

Well, I've posted photos here and there and micro-blogged abut the whole experience but I've never really dealt with it with one go.

Eh last Saturday, during yoga, AJ (the only guy in polecats) mentioned that he'll be teaching Men's Pole this Novemeber!!!

HOW cool is that!?!?!?

So now I'm back to my Post-pole Withdrawal syndrome and am having Pole Fantasies whenever I see street signs and lamp posts... Fantasies that involve mostly climbing them and inverting and doing stunts AND NOTHING dirrtyyy!!! Let's leave that to the poles in Bed, Malate! bwahahahaha!!!

MEN'S POLE FITNESS WORKSHOP



Yan daw ang tamang tawag sa workshop namin. NOT Men's Pole "Dancing"

Bawal kumontra kei? Kung may pagtutol, pwes, dalin mo yan sa klase at gumawa ka ng Side Mount-Spider Man-Flagpole-Brass Monkey-Mermaid Drop. Pag nagawa mo yun sa unang subok pa lang fine, payag ako.

Hindi sya Pole Dancing coz, much to the chagrin of my pokpok self, walang hair toss, hair flip, kendeng, at strip tease involved. (sad but hey, I do it on a daily basis anyway, so keri lang!)

Truth be told, it felt more like acrobatics and gymnastics!

Lifting weights on a well-structured machine is one thing... but lifting your whole body weight on nothing but a vertical pole is something else!

Hndi biro ang mag-shoulder mount (na BTW, kaya wala kong pic kasi di ko siya magawa)



That's one of my classmates, Richmond Sia, a Muay Thai instructor. He's around 200lbs (you can tell) and he can do THAT! Imagine how much core strength it requires to pull 200lbs off the ground with nothing but your shoulder and hands holding on to a pole!!!



And that's Doc Jon, anesthesiologist by day, pole and yoga diva on the side. Mas mataray si ate o, legs in 90 degrees pa! tseh.

Ako, well, natapos ang workshop na hindi ko ngagawa ang shoulder mount. My abs are made of jelly!

On our very first day, I was only able to do the Spider-Man (coz it was taught na during the 1-day Men's Workshop) and the flagpole:



This is relatively easy for me to do coz the forearms are more engaged. 50% of the weight is on my arm and my core is just basically lifting my legs



The whole workshop was all about different ways of mounting the pole. Obviously, it's kind of a basic move and a foundation for succeeding pole moves. I mean, how can you do tricks up the pole if you can't climb it right?



That's Doc Jon about to do a Spider Man (I think) after doing a Chinese Pole Mount (thingy, I don't think I'm getting the names right). I love this shot. Sobrang relax lang. Feeling mo pwede syang shumombey sa pole maghapon lol!



I couldn't get the side mount and the shoulder mount, but I was one of the few who was able to do the Iguana and the Brass Monkey. Don't hate me, I'm just proud of my accomplishments! lol Kapag na-try mo mag-pole at may nagawa kang bongga, magiging proud ka din, for sure!



The course also covered a lot of inversions... They really wanted us to get used to the feeling of having our feet off the ground and having EVERYTHING turned upside down.



That's me attempting to do a candle stick



And that's the Iguana.



There was also this, I kinda fear for my spine, looking at this shot.



That's Michael, inverting and mounting is so easy for this guy! Sya na ang FIT! Nakakaines he can even do hand stands!!! WITHOUT THE WALL!!!

Anyway, that's what pole is all about, right? The amazing tricks are always the ones that are NOT "normal" - we don't normally have our feet flying in the air. And being able to do it makes it more awesome. The more unusual looking it is, the more amazing it seems. But that's just me :p

After the mounting and the inversion, the hardest part comes: THE LETTING GO!

Oh Lady GaGa (I don't wanna involve God so pop icons na lang), I had such a funny story. So I was inverted, hanging on the pole with nothing but my hands and one ankle, like this:



Then CD, our teacher and the founder of Polecats, says "OK... let go of one foot"

So I do this:



Then she goes, "OK... let go of the OTHER foot"

At which point I started panicking  and kinda screeched "WHICH FOOT!?!?!"

And my classmates go, "Alin pa ba? E di the one that's on the pole! Ilan ba paa mo, tatlo?"

BWAHAHAHHAHAHA

And then I slipped! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

The amazing thing is once you get over the FEAR you'll actually be able to pull off the stunt:


(Derrick doing a Spider-man, letting go of the pole and just CLINGING with his feet and armpit!)

And possibly, even manage to look graceful:



SO!

Feeling mo madali lang? Sige... labas ka, punta ka sa pinakamalapit na poste... tapos maglambitin ka. Try mo muna gawin. Balitaan mo ako kung kinaya mo ulit-ulitin ng isang oras TSE!

NEVER HAD A WORK-OUT LIKE THIS BEFORE

I tried going to the gym before (back in 2009). It didn't last. To me it was more of a chore than a work-out. I only lasted for as long as I did coz of the Spinning class. The whole lifting weights, running on the treadmill, the abusive GX instructor (maybe minalas lang) is NOT my thing.

Well, the steam room and the sauna and the shower is my thing but it's a totally different story! bwahahahahaha!!!!

Feeling ko talaga pinaparusahan ako dati pag naggi-gym ako. Also, I felt like it's not money well spent. Coz I get out of the gym NOT feeling happy nor was I excited going to it. I didn't feel REWARDED with the regular gym routine

SO there. I stopped

So now I found yoga. and I've been doing it religously for around 10 months now an I don't plan to discontinue it EVER.

I guess I found the same REWARD in pole dancing as I have in yoga: being swept off your feet, deliberately flinging yourself upside-down, putting yourself in a rather compromising situation... AND YET all the while LEARNING not just the stunt but also some essential tricks that one brings outside the studio: To let go of the fear, trust in yourself, and know that everything will be fine. Only then was I able to see the FUN in what I was doing. Goes the same way for life itself.

IT'S NOT EASY


That much I can assure you. The pictures you see are worth 4 Saturdays of doing it endlessly for one hour.

It wasn't always a pretty sight. A lot of times we fall (too much and too carelessly much to CD's disapproval. hahaha)



But we get up, dust ourselves off, laugh it off and try again.

The good thing about this class was that there was always someone there to support you.



...to give you words of encouragement,



...push you to be better,



... and most especially, you have people who will goof off with you



...and will take your photos for posterity, documentation, and good old cam-whoring



Sabi nga namin ng mga classmates ko, we have managed to do the tricks with some level of dignity.... this time around, we'll try to do them with GRACE (Lady GaGa help us!)

So if you think that Pole is just for girls, well those little ladies are a lot more stronger than you think they are.

And if you think that Pole is just for gay men, well, only if that means gay men are a lot more stronger and capable than our hetero counterparts...

I'm definitely looking forward to the November Class!

Join na din kayo mga becklings!!!

Here's an episode of Polecats TV featuring the Men's Class
