Can Flavor Help You Find Love?

#LoveAtFirstTaste

Sabi nila, the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Ganun din naman sa woman. Basta alam mo siya pakainin, alam mo paborito niyang food, alam mo yung ayaw niya, at alam mo rin ang putahe na pwede niya kainin any day of the week, swak na kayo.

Nahihirapan ka makahanap ng kapareha sa buhay? Try mo maghanap muna ng ka-FUBU.

Oo, FUBU. Hindi ito yung brand ng damit.

FUBU means FUd BUddy. Hanap ka ng kapareho mo ng ayos ng taste buds. Hanap ka ng kapareho mo ng cravings. Hanap ka nun kumakain ng balot, nage-enjoy sa kilawin, at hindi nandidiri sa Dinuguan.

Ang unang tanong kasi na mahirap sagutin sa first date ay “San tayo kakain?”

 

Ogie Alcasid's Newest Album Is Your Next Treasure Chest For Beautiful Ballads

I was invited to have a quick chat with Ogie Alcasid recently. Known for ballad classics, this songwriter went back to what he loves most – singing. After four years, he released “Ikaw Ang Buhay Ko” album.

Whiskey and Vodka ; My Quick Summer Siren Festival Fling

#SummerSiren2016

Summer Siren 2016 officially opens the summer party season. It was held at Crystal Beach, san Narciso Zambales last April 8-10, 2016. With more than 30 bands and DJs, the beach was full of fun activities, parties, music, dancing, and flirting.

At kahit andun ako for work, hindi ako nagpahuli.

I was tasked to man the bars. Day Bar during 2pm-6pm and the Second Bar during 10pm-2am. I know, walang oras pumarty. Pagtapos ng shift, halos patapos na rin ang tugtugan. Kung hindi ka pagod, pagod na yung mga kaparty mo. Continue reading “Whiskey and Vodka ; My Quick Summer Siren Festival Fling”

I visited his shop 2 days ago sa Zabarte Town Cennter, Caloocan. Dahil dumating na si Piyonna (my lightsaber), bumili ako ng Saber Bag sa shop niya.

It is one long jeepney ride from Quezon Avenue. Sobrang lapit na nun mall na yun sa Fairview. Quite far really, but the visit is worth it.

Na-meet ko siya officially sa Philippine Lightsaber Guild. He creates the patches for the guild logo, the temple logos, and special events. Yung huling creation niya was the Earth Hour x Philippine Light Saber special patch.

He supplies the patches for US and Japan special forces. His patches travel around the world. His patches can be seen in multiple movies, magazines, and uniforms. His design is very intricate, clean, fine, and proudly Pinoy-made.

A Familiar Face.

Nakakatuwa. Sa kwentuhan namin, na-discover namin na nag-meet na pala kami before sa Palaui Island, specifically sa Cape Engano, the lighthouse that guides boats approaching the Batanes group of islands. Unang trip ko sa Travel Factor nun, habang siya naman, trip niya lang mag-damit SWAT, at mag pictorial sa lighthouse.

Kakaibang trip yun.

I cannot remember kung nakapagpa-picture ako sa kanya. Basta ang naaalala ko, natakot ako nun nakita ko siya. Akala ko may SWAT operations na nangyayari noon. He was in full battle gear, complete with a heavy rifle and shades. Parang yung mga kalaban lang ni Solid Snake.

I talked him into doing the exact same thing, visiting certain spots, this time in Jedi/Sith costume. Tignan daw namin kapag hindi na busy ang schedule niya.

Not Just Your Average Guy.

His works are recently featured in the ARMS Magazine Japan. He goes there from time to time to be interviewed about recent designs and their meanings. I remember him explaining to me what COME AND TAKE IT means.

He is THE Patch Guy, but he also has background in the navy. He knows things about business, design, and of course the way of the force.

I am happy na nadagdagan na naman ang contacts ko.

Maybe one of these days, magpapagawa ako ng specialized – limited edition – kampeon ng pag-ibig patch sa kanya. Bahala na siya siguro mag-design.

Got A Guy series is about guys that I meet who supplies me with things. From gadgets, to cellphone load, to candies, food, discounted things, and whatever. I will use this series to promote their business and to take note of their contact information at the same time.

Patches, maybe you have seen one in the movies
