Project

I'm almost done with the interior repainting of my home, the final area which is the master bedroom.
It should have been finished months ago but I had to let go of my painter for a period of time so he can repaint a family member's house that was in dire need of a refresh.

Master bedroom is split in half.
This is the area currently being worked on.
This half serves as my home office. 


I've chosen the color powder blue. It's like a mix of gray and blue. Not too bright/light.
Much calmer. More soothing.
Pardon the mess. They're part of the process :-)


The room's color back in 2003.
Very juvenile.
Time flew by so fast.

Speaking of time flying by, I saw this photo in a very old USB stick I found while I was boxing my stuff. 
A photocopy of my old driver's license.


 I'm only 171 cm around 5'7" tall.
Why am I not tall? Is it because I seldom drank milk when I was kid?
But I'm lactose intolerant. Ewww!
 Huhuhu! I wish I was at least 180 cm. Here I go again.
Oh fairy gaymother, please grant my wish. Hehe!
51 kg. So skinny back then.
If I went back in time, my 2002 version will most likely find it difficult to recognize me ;-)

Nostalgia

The heat wave is becoming unbearable.
Imagine enduring temperatures of 36 degrees and above, and heat indexes of 39 to 40+ degrees Celsius which is about 100+ degrees Fahrenheit. Gosh!
I didn't want to immediately turn on the air conditioner when I got home so I decided to take a late afternoon drive around town.


I stopped by my old high school building which apparently has been turned into a university extension.
I haven't visited it in a very very very loooooong time.
I'm pleased to see the acacia tree still standing.
The parking lot used to be unpaved when I was still studying there.
Now it's so neat and orderly.


The building looks so old.....because it is old! 
It's "ancient." LOL!
They have air conditioners now?
Back in the day, the rooms only have a limited number of electric fans. 
Some of us even brought and used hand fans to deal with the heat.
Sosyal may aircon na sila. Dati nag-aagawan pa kami sa electric fan.
Nagbabaon pa nga ako ng pamaypay eh. Hehe!


Right across the former high school building stands what used to be the elementary school building which has been turned into the parish church's living quarters/office.
I didn't go inside because there were people giving me stares while I was taking pictures.
The school transferred its elementary and high school departments to a different district during the mid 1990s by the way.


Right beside what used to be the elementary school building is the parish church.
(St. Martin of Tours Parish church)


The school I went to is a very religious catholic school. 
A mass is always held every first Friday of the month and during important dates in the catholic calendar which students are required to attend.


When I was a kid, I used to hang around this monument after school with my classmates having "merienda" while waiting for the family driver to pick me up. Oh the memories.


The sun is finally setting.
 Time for me to head out before the gates are closed.
Have a nice day :-)

Cravings

Delicious "addiction" LOL!
I'm addicted to video games.
I'm addicted to anime.
I used to be addicted to umm..."love" ;-)
Now I'm just addicted to chips. Oh no!
Time to raid the pantry. Haha.
Fret not. I only have some on weekends. Sundays to be exact.
I am craving chicharon chips at the moment with some vinegar to dip it in, and a cold glass of Coca Cola to wash it down my tummy. Hehehe.
Yum yum! 
Have a nice day!




I made this quite some time ago. Before I had my home repainted
Forgot to upload it because I was busy :-)

Nighty night!

 ...lonely is the night... 
Just another warm, quiet evening in a sleepy provincial town.


Summer has already begun here in the country.
Not particularly fond of the heat but I'd definitely prefer it  over the monsoon.
I hate dealing with torrential rains, typhoons, and floods. 

Have a wonderful summer to everyone :-)

Retouched

Finished!


Had my casual dining area, and my kitchen's prep and wash areas totally repainted.
Walls, ceilings, doors and cabinets, all painted.


The walls used to be white, the cabinets green, and the baseboards and crown moldings were green as well.
I replaced them with neutral colors.


If the partition between the casual dining area and the kitchen was mere drywall, I would have had it removed.
But just like most homes here in the Philippines, it's concrete.
It will be too much work and noise and dust if I had it removed
and I'm not ready to be stressed by that.


I would like to replace the countertop and backsplash in the future.
They're already dated. 12 years to be exact.
I want a slate countertop, white subway tiles for the backsplash and a farm sink as well.
Time to save some dinero :-)


Forgive the mess.
We're still in the process of cleaning.


The next home reno project is my hallway.
I'm merely continuing the same color palette of my receiving area.
The ceiling is going to be black and the crown moldings will be white.
The walls be a neutral gray and the baseboards will be white.


I'm loving the change.
It looks more modern now.
Have a nice day :-)

10!

Time flew by so fast!
It's been 10 years since I became a YouTube member January 14th of 2006.




This is my very first video.
I uploaded it on January 19, 2006.
I miss my youth. 
Aging sucks! LOL!



Webcams back then have really awful video quality.
If you're new to this blog, that is how I sound when I speak. LOL!
Well, nobody's perfect :-)
Have a nice day!

The comments section is turned off for the time being.

Edited

I watched the pageant weeks ago but not in its entirety.
It was only a few days ago that I was able to watch its rerun in full.
I felt sorry for the Colombian that she was put in such an awkward situation.
I also felt bad for Ms. Philippines since she didn't get to fully relish her victory "moment" on stage.
As a Filipino I'm glad that she finally won the crown for the Philippines after 40+ years.


I edited out the unfortunate events in order to make the announcement of the winner, her victory walk, and coronation all seamless.
The pageant's classic theme was also used.
Happy New Year!
 Have a nice day and weekend :-)

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!
I am doing much better now.
 I had hay fever the last time I blogged.
It's rice harvesting season at the moment and the area I live in is extra dusty now being surrounded by numerous rice mills, hence my allergies.
It's also why there are no curtains in my living room at the moment. They are magnets for dust.
I only have one trusted assistant who does the housework (clean, cook, laundry & ironing, car wash, and so forth) and I don't want to give my assistant any more additional workload like vacumming large curtains.    


My tree is up.
Finished setting it last Saturday evening.
It think it needs more lighting.
I'm still not done with my Christmas gift shopping though.
Can you believe that? My goodness!


I'm suddenly reminded of my Enzo.
I miss you little bud.

Again, Happy Holidays to all of us and may we
all have a wonderful year in 2016.
Take care :-)

Red!

Last time I had a cold, and right now my cough is just beginning to subside.
My eyes were red a few weeks ago and just as I thought they were already healed, they turned red again yesterday. I went to my ophthalmologist but he wasn't at his clinic, so I had to return on Monday. Fortunately I still have some prescribed eye drops.
My stress level is already starting to rise and this happens.



So many red dots on my chest and back.
Red is color of the month I guess.
Red eyes. Red skin dots. Rashes.
I have to go to the doctor and have it checked on Monday as well.
Not sure if it's an allergic reaction or something else.
It's spreading to my arms.
What have I done to deserve this?
I take good care of my bod. 
I live a quiet life and do not mistreat people.
Why this kind of karma?
Wala akong bisyo. Wala naman akong winawalang hiyang tao. 
Ako pa nga kadalasan ang niloloko at winawalang hiya.
One at a time lang sana. Wag naman sabay sabay. Mag-isa lang ako eh.
This body is so uncooperative.
I can do this. I have to, the only person I can rely on is myself since I'm not fond of asking help from other people.
Anyway, these types of situations build up a person's character.
I hope December will be a better month because I plan on celebrating the Holiday Season this year.
Last year I didn't really celebrate it bec. of all of the fucked up things that happened.
This year I truly plan to.

Infatuation 2015

So many cuteys popping out these days. I wish I was young again :-)
I haven't blogged about this kind of stuff in years.
I had a fun time picking out the hotties.
Going to concentrate mainly on Pinoy celebrities okay.

5th in my list is Rodjun.
If you're hungry for a total beefcake, he's the stud for you. 
Look at that bod! Wow!
High in protein. Low in fat. Hehe.
He also happens to be a good dancer. Pogi points for that.


Rodjun Cruz 28 5'9"


In 4th spot is Filipino heartthrob, Alden.
He may not possess the most defined bod but he is definitely cuteness overload!
He's a talented actor. He can also sing and dance. What more can one ask for?
With his wholesome image and background, he's the type of guy you would be confident to introduce to your family.


Alden Richards 23 5'11"



3rd place goes to Dennis.
He's been on my list of crushes for the longest time.
He's one of the best actors of his generation and also one of the best looking faces in Philippine showbiz in my opinion.
The man ages like wine.


Dennis Trillo 34 5'7"


Runner-up is JM.
What I like about him is his typical Filipino good looks.
Pinoy na pinoy ang dating niya.
This talented young actor seems to be facing a lot of personal issues lately.
I hope he pushes through.
Nevertheless, I find him hot!
May nanliligaw sa akin medyo kamukha niya,
 parang gusto ko na tuloy isuko ang aking bandila. LOL!


JM De Guzman 27 5'7"

Oh JM, we can blow...dry each other any time. Hehe.


And my numero uno celebrity crush for 2015 is....indie actor, Martin!
His is an angelic face with a body that tempts you to commit
a lot of sins. LOL!
If you want your guy lean, hairy & carries an extra large package, Martin's the one.
What a bulge! Yum! Yum! ;-)


Martin del Rosario 23 5'8"



So, who is your crush, celeb or not?
It's always nice to have someone who puts a smile on your face, just by thinking about the person.

I have a cold and a cough. My left eye is also red. I had it checked yesterday and the ophthalmologist prescribed an eye drop which I have to administer every 2 hours.
I cannot wear contact lenses for 2 weeks. I hate wearing glasses.
I try to take care of my body as much as I can because I hate getting sick.
It can be frustrating to get sick if you're alone, but I just have to suck it in.
Hay naku!
I'll just Google more scantily clad photos of the men above so I'll feel better.
Maybe I'll hit a jackpot and find nude ones ;-)
Have a nice day!

Dubbed

A blog reader recently emailed me requesting that I do another dubsmash.
Why in the world would he want me to dubsmash again? Hehe.
 The requester's name is prettyhardboy69.
Since I love the number 69, and things that are pretty & hard , his request was easily granted. LOL!
Pinagbigyan ko na. Konti nga lang nagbabasa ng blog ko, baka mabawasan pa. Haha!
I also didn't have much anything to do that night, so might as well get on with it & have fun :-)



He specifically requested this Justin Bieber song.
My gosh! A man my age dubsmashing the Biebs & Minaj. Haha!
I'm glad I was able to do it in one take. Was dizzy by the end. LOL!
Happy Halloween! I hope I didn't scare ya ;-)
