This blog post in inspired by the new blog of my very good friend, Poyt, called Beki-in-Manila. It’s a very informative blog if you wanna know the latest gay lingo in town (because just like pokemon, it evolves). So just for the lulz and the heck of it, I decided to come up with my own gay lingo, inspired by some KPOP celebrities. I swear you should start using them because they’re very useful!
WARNING: This is just crack so if you’ll get offended, here’s one peso. Go buy yourself some sense of humor.
Example: Ay! Nakita mo ba ang merli (babae) sa party kagabi?! In fairness, ang GANDAra Park! Talong-talo ka na, bakla. May matres pa sya.
Example: Hoy echoserang palaka! Bakit mo tine-text ang BoA ko?! Gusto mong ma-uppercut?
WARNING: Long post is long… but I got photos and funnies so hopefully, you won’t get bored! XD
DIVING WILL KILL YOU. That’s what I believed for the longest time. You’ll either be eaten by a shark or bitten by some poisonous sea snake. If you won’t die, your ear drums would explode. Well, I’m still alive so it looks like I was wrong all along.
For almost two years now, Jayvee has been bugging me to do an intro dive but I always gave excuses and put it off, until this trip came along and I could say no any longer. In fairness, I was really excited, especially since we’d be diving in a big group with other friends, Jimmy included. BUT. I WAS STILL. MOTHERFUCKIN’. SCARED.
On Saturday morning, we pulled out for Batangas pier where we took a boat going to White Beach, Puerto Galera. Puerto Galera?!?! Who would’ve thought you could go diving in Galera? I’m sure you all think it is just for the gays. And maybe getting pissed drunk on the beach. With gays (don’t get me wrong, I love the gays!). Well, well, well, we were surprised, too!
Our instructor, a French-Canadian guy named Gus also owns the resort. He’s super cool! And I’ve met a lot of nice people in my life and I tell yah, he’s literally one of the genuinely nicest.
That’s Gus Punk, owner of GULI Diving. Also, that’s their logo, giving you the middle finger.
Entrance of the resort. GULI stands for Gus and Lisa, his Filipina wife. That’s so Pinoy, right?
I remember the time when fangirling was still super difficult. Youtube was not in existence yet and we would download 10 mb videos at 56K speed for an hour or more (from forums). The alien-like noise of the modem while it’s connecting was a common sound and heck, we even shared files by burning them onto blank VCDs because USB flash disks weren’t available until years later.
YES I AM THAT OLD.
Of course, in the last few years, faster internet has become available to us and trust me, you are lucky bitches because you can now fangirl on-the-go. Before, we had to wait ’til we got home from school to read those fanfics! Did I mention there was no youtube and only Arirang and NHK were available on cable? Fuuuuu. How the hell did we manage?
Today, there are so many options available for all of us to be connected to the internet. There’s of course broadband for your home, 3G on your phone, dongle (I really can’t help but LOL when I hear that ‘coz it’s like dong + tingle), and many others. I may not be a techie but I’m a consumer and I appreciate that the providers are trying to outdo one another in giving us the best and fastest service. To me, it all boils down to what you want and what are your specific needs. I’m just using fangirling as an example because I learned my away around the net ‘coz of F4 and Jpop/Kpop teehee.
When my friend over at Globe asked me to try SuperStick, I chuckled like a green-minded school girl. And then I became more mature and said, sure! Lemme try summa that Tattoo SuperStick!
Tattoo SuperStick. It does not look like this when you buy it for the first time.
