MTRCB launches its new infomercial

MTRCB launches its new infomercial

Behind the scenes

Last February 23, 2015, MTRCB formally launched its infomercial which aims to challenge parents and responsible adults to be aware of the media content their children are exposed to, and to be mindful of the MTRCB’s classification ratings.  They also want parents to be reminded that the primary duty in guiding their children as to the media the latter see still rests in them.

Directed by by renowned film and television director Jose Javier “Joey” Reyes, Jr., DGPI and conceptualized by Mr. Erlito “Lilit” Reyes, the infomercial features actors-spouses Ryan and Judy Ann Agoncillo in a typical morning situation at home.  In such scene, their depicted child picks up a word from a TV feature and asks the elders in the house what it means.

2014, A Year in Review

2014 has been great to me! It was a year that brought me a whole new set of friends who feel like my tribe, a trip to Hong Kong and Singapore, trivia nights, cosplay experiences, and so much more.

Ball-jointed Dolls

Yasu and Ling Ling

I had an addition to my BJD collection early last year with my purchase of Ling Ling. I love her and I think she’s so pretty. I spent a good deal of money and clothes and accessories for her but I’ve neglected my dolls again with my pursuits of other pleasures.

Overseas Trips

Hong Kong trip with my family

Hong Kong trip with my family

Last year brought me back to 2 Asian countries I love: Hong Kong and Singapore. Hong Kong was where I experienced the most turbulent and frightening flight I’ve ever experienced. I went to Singapore on my own to watch the reunion concert of Slowdive.

Slowdive’s is one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended so the trip was worth it.

I also had an accident in Singapore when I tripped so hard while looking for the MTR station. My knee is still injured up to now but I’m too scared to go to a doctor to have it checked.

Cousin Dinners

My sister started organizing dinner dates with our cousins last year too. We try to do it once a month. Because of these cousin dinners, we were able to organize a cousins-only Hong Trip for January 2015. That should be a blast! Actually I’m kind of scared of how cold it could get there this time of the year.

This guy perfectly sums up what clinical depression feels like

I wish Sky Williams is my friend because he knows how to handle depressives like me. Watch it and learn how to be a support to your depressive friend.

O’ Captain, my Captain

My TV was tuned in to Teleradyo while I was sleeping last night. My subconscious woke me up when Noli de Castro mentioned that Robin Williams has died and it might have been through suicide. It took a moment to sink in and when it did, my heart crumpled. Mr. Williams seemed to be the happiest man alive so I couldn’t imagine him taking his own life unless… Well CNN confirmed it. He had been been suffering from severe depression which is something I could relate to.

I’ll try not to make this post about myself but I want you, my readers, to somehow know how it is for depressives. Observe those who are close to you. See who makes jokes the most. Perhaps the reason why that person is compelled to joke around is due to his/her depression. I love making people around me laugh and when I’m successful with it, I feel better about myself. I can only imagine the depth of Mr. Williams’ loneliness and grief but I’m guessing it’s fathomless.

I am not sure as to what happens after we die but I hope there is no purgatory or hell. I want Robin’s pain to finally stop and I wish the same for myself when I die. Robin Williams, I hope you are finally free.

The myth of Filipinos being “matulungin”

Hand Reaching

I was in Megamall earlier when I stopped by Chris Sports to look at their exercise bikes. After canvasing the prices, I began walking out of the store but then suddenly fell from an approximately 3-inch platform. I was on all fours wincing in pain for about a minute then stood up shakily. I have week knees and I’m prone to such accidents. This particular accident however disgusted me. There were quite a number of people in the store and not one single person offered any help nor asked if I was okay when I stood up. Even the salesperson who earlier assisted me just stood silently as I told him that they should put warning signs about the platform lest it cause more accidents. After telling him that, I left the store sorely and procedeed to do my errands.

As I was walking, I began thinking why nobody offered any help or showed even the remotest sign of concern. Are Filipinos so cold now that they only help others when it affects them personally or there’s a major disaster. I’ve heard of mugging cases when there were witnesses but they were just that, witnesses. Filipinos are known for being “matulungin,” right? Or is that just a myth? Guiltily, when I help other people, it’s usually coursed through charity work but when there are signs of danger, I freeze up and become one of those mute witnesses. Why is this? What happened to us? Is our sense of self preservation hindering us from helping our fellowmen?

When I tripped and fell in Europe, so many strangers were concerned about me. They even wanted to call an ambulance. Here I’m lucky if someone offers a hand so I can stand up. I hope I am wrong about how I see our helpfulness. I don’t want to think badly about our race but my experiences say otherwise.

Rock Supremo: Heroes are human too

I came to the Silliman Luce Auditorium with hardly any expectation except that I will be watching something about the life of Andres Bonifacio. When I exited, I had goosebumps all over and pining for a chance to watch it again.

2014-02-28 20.57.52

Rock Supremo is a joint project of RockEd Philippines, Ballet Philippines, and the National Historic Commission of the Philippines. RockEd tapped local musicians to come up with songs with Ka Andres in mind, musicians such as SandwichPeryodikoEbe Dancel, and Gloc-9  among others. Since not much is known about the facts of the Supremo‘s life, the bands created songs as how they imagined Andres was when he was still alive. They presented Andres as human and not just a hero. He fell in love, was betrayed by his best friend, had moments of cowardice, etc. just someone as human as we are.

2014-02-28 21.01.23

The songs the artists created were put into choreography and a cohesive stage performance by Ballet Philippines. I don’t think this has ever been attempted before in the history of Ballet Philippines. The approach to the choreography is modern. Raw even. It’s as far from classical as I’ve ever seen with the dancers changing costumes on stage, pirouettes and other moves not perfectly in synch, and there’s a big video screen as part of the backdrop. The overall effect was four-dimensional with the whole audio-visual modern approach and the presentation of the facets of Andres Bonifacio’s humanity.

2014-02-28 21.30.42

It is my wish to watch Rock Supremo again, this time with the bands performing live. I regret not watching when that happened at CCP. It’s a blessing that I was to catch it in Dumaguete. I’ve grown to appreciate even more our OPM, ballet, and our heroes. Somehow, I can now relate more to Andres Bonifacio and I “know” more about his life, imagined it may be.

How I got into tatting and my first official project

2014-02-01 18.49.18

I took up tatting by studying online tutorials I think 4 years ago or whenever it was when Yahoogroups and Lycos were still popular. There were plenty of patterns and tutorials back then and all you needed was patience. I tatted cross bookmarks mostly because I found them beautiful and gothic. Finding supplies in my country (Philippines) was a challenge though so I stopped after a year and because I was starting to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

Now I took up tatting again. Some of the tutorials and patters are still online and some you have to use The Way Back Machine to access them. Technology and access to threads are better now thanks to the internet and forwarders. I ordered a bunch of books on tutorials like Learn to Tat (with DVD)and patterns and lots of threads. I even bought needles for needle tatting but I still don’t understand how that works.

For my first official project, I decided to take on a heart pattern from the tutorial book. It was a project for intermediate tatters but I was ambitious and thought it was easy. Well, the photo above was the final result which, although it still looks pretty, is far from being heart-shaped. My next project was slightly more successful but more on that later.

Budding Romance

Today I finally decided to let two of my BJDs see each other in person. I’m very protective of innocent Ling Ling and I know that Yasu has a bad boy streak. So I took them to Manika Manila’s Valentine’s Meet and as I expected, Ling Ling caught the eye of Yasu.

Who is this pretty girl?

Who is this pretty girl?

Hi. I'm Hiroki Hidetoshi. They call me Yasu. May I know your name?

Hi. I’m Hiroki Hidetoshi. They call me Yasu. May I know your name?

I'm Ling Ling Hwang. It's only my second time here so I don't know many people. Glad to meet you ^_^

I hope you don't mind if I take your photo. I'm taking photos of everyone here *ehem* Sure?

It sure is crowded here, Yasu. I'm kind of intimidated.

Don't worry, Ling Ling. I'm here. ;-)

That same night.

I wanted to play my cello tonight but it was so crowded. I didn't have room to play

I wanted to play my cello tonight but it was so crowded. I didn’t have room to play. That might have impressed Yasu…

I wonder if I look cool posing like this. Good thing there's room now and the lights are romantic

Google Friend Connect is my enemy

GFC

I find Google Fried Connect, GFC for short, utterly useless. Frustrating too because I couldn’t join giveaways which require me to connect to GFC. For some unexplained reason, I get a 404 Error when I click on join. I tried to find a solution for it but it just led me to more gripers bemoaning the fact that they can’t connect as well.

I wish Google will just get rid of it. There are other social media which lets you know how many followers you have. There’s Bloglovin’, Networked Blogs, Twitter, and Facebook Fan Pages to name a few. Those are what I use for my blogs anyway.

If you know of a solution on how I can fix GFC, let me know. I’ve been bashing my head against the wall for years now because of it and there are so many great giveaways with that rotten GFC follow requirement.
