Kenny Rogers Roasters' Experience With William & Belle.


Hey guys, how are you? In this blog post of mine, I’ll be sharing my experience personally in this resto located in SM light mall , Boni MRT. Together with William and Belle – we decided to drop by to grab a bite after our night shift. Literally, we never planned such breakfast. Originally, we agreed to have a breakfast sa ilalim ng MRT sa Boni MRT but we change our plan kasi naman nakatakong si Belle.

💢 Why Vlogging In the Philippines Isn't Easy.🙎


Vlog is now a new flat form of sharing content online.  A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts. The vlog category is popular on YouTube.

I am a blogger but I decided to do a Vlog lately because of the rapid change of needs in online media. My readers preferred watching videos rather than reading my article. Indeed, Vlog is more interactive. Joining in a Vlog World is not that easy for me. It takes courage and sacrifice to run a Youtube Channel especially I am a full time employee.

Blog is totally different from Vlog because in Blog- you can seek perfection through editing the photos and editing the articles before you publish. To be honest, you can pretend in your Blog post but in Vlog, you have to be yourself because viewers are now wiser in watching and subscribing channel. It is a rough transition for me but I still have to be flexible especially in a fast pacing world – online users are lazy to read articles ; they opted watching videos instead.

In the Philippines, Vlog is very fresh. In fact as a Vlogger I’m really having hard time recording outdoor video since security guards consider it as a security threat.  Recording video and talking in front your camera is very awkward because people will stare on you while doing it in public - they find it so strange that someone is talking to the camera; unlike doing selfie Filipinos are used to it.

💖 My Cover Song 💙 - 💜 Walking In The Rain by A1 💛


Way back 1999; I was hooked up by this British-Norwegian boy band named A1. Well, that time – boybands really dominate the music industry.  Aside from their romantic songs they are also talented and good-looking wherein everyone is emulating and singing their songs. In fact, I am the one of them who got crazy.

The members of the boy band are Ben Adams, Christian Ingebrigtsen, and Mark Read.

Up until now, I can still sing their song w/o lyrics in front of me. Indeed, after 18 years, karaoke apps in android are now available; so we can easily sing their romantic songs, record it and upload in various social media.

Meanwhile, let me share my cover songs of “Walking in the Rain”. It is one of the songs of the debut album “Here We Come”-released on December 1999.

Celebrating Christmas 🌲 (Noche Buena) at the Workplace.


Christmas is one of the highly celebrated Holidays in the Philippines. In fact, family members who are working in the urban zones will find ways just to go back home in provinces just to rejoice Christmas with their family. It is once a year celebration and time to gather all the family members – to show love.

Despite of this strong culture, there are people behind this happy and must awaited holiday that are sacrificing on not going home to spend time with their family. Instead, they spent their Christmas Eve with their workmates as they need to attend the call of duty.  Call Center Workers are not excluded on this.

We have also OFWs – tinitiis ang pamilya para makapagpadala; Security Guards who are handling cups of coffee while on duty. Waiters who are serving foods while their families are at home celebrating; and Hospital Workers who are always ready to save life yet they gave up their chance of having fun with their families.

Truly, it is partly sad but like what we always uttered “DADAAN DIN YAN”. To work in a BPO industry is not easy, it takes courage to bring ourselves to work during at night, it takes sacrifice to leave our family during happy moments and work hard on the floor. This Christmas 2016, Let me greet you a MERRY CHRISTMAS to those who gave up their Christmas Eve to report at work. 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲

Watch My Throwback Video Before I Established My Vlog.


Prior on learning the post-production in Vlogging which is video editing, I just recovered this video of mine in my USB - 8 years ago when I was in college. The video is a project presentation for the subject “LAW ON OBLIGATIONS AND CONTRACT”.  I was one of the proponents on the said video. Indeed, I was laughing -how awful my project was. It has pixelated video, poor acting, noisy audio and a very unsmooth editing.

I admit that as of now, I am still on the process of learning how to edit my videos for my Vlogs. But if you evaluate my college output, I must say that there is a quite improvement in comparison to my current videos that I uploaded in my Youtube Channel. Well without further ado; let me share this video of mine that tackles the Philippine Civil code.

Pagpasensyahan niyo po. I did try to re-edit it using Sony Vegas to enhance.

Accepting The Challenge : To Be A Drag Queen - Tina Turner.

Ever since I accepted myself for whom really I am, I learned to be myself more than before. And being yourself for who really you are is a must especially if you are a youtuber – no room for pretentious act.

Indeed, As Jonathan Orbuda, if you’re gonna check my bucket list; one of those is be a drag queen. According to Wikipedia, A drag queen is a person, usually male, who dresses in drag and often acts with exaggerated femininity and in feminine gender roles. Often, they will exaggerate certain characteristics such as make-up and eyelashes for comic, dramatic, or satirical effect.

I was given a chance to emulate Tina Turner in a Lip Sych Battle and undeniably I was extremely excited when I heard the offer – I am now able to put check my bucketlist.

When I did that act and have it posted in my channel, lots of my friends said “ Bumigay Kana!” , I just ignore because I knew deep within that I am never consider myself as a woman trapped in a man’s body. Moreover, gender identity has nothing to do with gender expression. And cross dressing or being a drag queen has nothing to do on how I identify myself. Minsan may mga bagay lang tayong dapat gawin para maging makulay ang buhay at hindi boring.

6 Reasons Why I Want Oppo F1s.


This article is not to sugar-coat nor to build up this Smartphone brand – OPPO .Yet this post is my real experience with Oppo f1s(even if I don’t have one). Allan Aban, who is my friend, bought a new phone in Oppo store. He opted the Oppo f1s and he let me use the phone for a short span of time and have it review – quality and features.  I was astonished of the phone quality.

Watch the video below. This video is raw file recorded using OPPO f1s front Camera. And I uploaded it directly to my Channel w/o editing AT ALL.

“I have this phone, I can maximise the full potential of the features SANA SA VLOG KO”, I said it to myself (May halong inggit)

Here the reasons why I wanted to have it in this Christmas (BUNOS, 13th Month Pay).

1. The front camera is truly insane. I did try to create a VLOG using it inside my room which is kinda dark and the quality of the video is remarkable.

2. The Front Camera, while recording can be zoom in and zoom out depending on my need. This is beneficial for a Vlogger like me because I don’t need to crop my video during the editing/post production. You just have to zoom in to avoid non- essential backdrops.

3. While recording the video, you can also adjust the brightness which is undeniably a breakthrough of a smart phone product. This is useful to ALL selfie addicts and video bloggers who are documenting their unforgettable moments in a dark vista – like dinner date, concert, fire display and etcetera. This phone is really for me in proportion to my lifestyle as a night crawler - (SEE VIDEO HERE as I vlog a bar review using other brand).

4. (Notice the Audio), the sound that being recorded is audible and I can hear the bass of my voice. It produces a crisp and high quality audio which is helpful to Vloggers .No more use of external voice recorder and shot gun microphone. Indeed, there’s no need to enhance the audio anymore – it’s time consuming anyway.

5. Look wise? – I must say that it is cosy. With those edges, thinness of the phone, shiny glass and variants colours available – Oppo f1s is really victorious in this aspect “Aesthetic”.

6. MEMORY WISE – This aspect is very important to all VLOGGERS, Photographer and selfie aficionados. The capacity of saving files to your phone is one of the features that I consider in a phone. Oppo f1s can has 32GB Rom and expandable to 128GB, amazing right. You can now take videos in HD and store it for a span of time.

Truly OPPO F1s is top of the line for me to be part of my VLOGGER’s gear in 2016. With an amount of PHP12, 000 , I am pretty sure that it is worth buying for.

P.S. After I uploaded the video in my Channel., I notice that  the file was recorded in 780P which is HD. Watch it again and set it to 780P

Interview: The Phenomenology of the Certain Personalities As a Living #Gay Icon.


One day, I received a personal message through my Face book account. The said communication was coming from a student of Polytechnic University of the Philippines College of Communication. He was asking me if – there is any way for me to allow them conducting an interview.  They are working on a research about “The Phenomenology of the Certain Personalities as Living #Gay Icon”.

Indeed, their objectives are (1) to know the demographic profile of the homosexual icon assuming that the selected personalities or icons are decent homosexual. (2) To determine how the selected personality lives their daily life assuming that the selected personality lives a normal life. (3) To determine the lived experiences of the selected personalities in terms of Childhood, Adolescence and Adulthood assuming that the selected personalities experience the ups and downs of being a homosexual icon. (4)To determine their perspective of their life as a homosexual assuming that selected icons have a broader perspective of life. (5) To determine their perspective of their life as a homosexual assuming that the selected icons have a broader perspective of life. And lastly, (5) to know the success and failures that brought them to become an icon assuming that the selected icons are successful homosexuals in their own fields.

After I got their goal of doing the research, I quickly allot time for them; that might be a huge help of understanding gay people as part of LGBT community. Then we agreed to meet in Robinson Forum.

Watch the interview conducted by Earl Jansen Danganan, Merby Jane Lorico and Ronnie Ugaban as I openly narrated my life story.

After the interview, a sudden flashback happened. I was able to reminisce those moments during my younghood, where I came from and those ups and downs that I experienced in my life. I just realized that the said interview reminded me to appreciate and be grateful on what I have today .Moreover, the interview brought me back to where Jonathan D. Orbuda started and where I am today – they said that I am an influential living gay icon.

Unconsciously, tears fell down while walking away from the students ............   saying “May narating pala ako, at may nakakapansin din pala.”
