Small Youtubers in the Philippines React on Additional Changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).


On January 16, 2018, Youtube released a pronouncement that there will be a new qualification of becoming part of Youtube Partner Program (YPP).  The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) lets creators monetize their content on YouTube. Creators can earn money from advertisements served on their videos and from YouTube Red subscribers watching their content. On Youtube Creator Blog, it has been mentioned that for you to qualify the YPP, a channel must have at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time in the past 12 months.

Originally, this “qualification approach” of Youtube was initially started in second quarter of 2017 wherein a channel must have 10,000 lifetime views to get monetized, but later on changed into this recent threshold.  Upon posting the said news, it earned a massive and shocking reaction especially to those thriving small channels.

In the Philippines, the most active group of content creators is Youtube Vloggers Ph wherein most of the members are small youtubers; and got affected negatively to this major change. Some took it as a challenge but some became de-motivated as they really worked hard to achieve the first qualification – 10k lifetime views, yet YT changed the threshold it right away.

Truly, becoming an online creator now is not easy anymore in comparison to the previous years passed by. I am fortunate that I signed up Youtube Partner Program earlier and I was able to monetize my videos without those thresholds. However, this qualification is applicable also to all existing partner – that when I didn’t reach the qualification, my partnership might forfeited. Aside from qualifications, the fast growth of number of small youtubers became a challenge to each individual as Youtube community turned into a jungle of creative people, spammers, bad actors and etcetera.

Watch this video as I am going to tackle this issue in my “10th POWER Series– Episode 4”.

What are your takeaways on this new change? 

Leave your comments below and I’ll reply it as soon as possible.

Deleting All My Gay Dating Apps is a Stage of Growing.

Advertisement by Google:
 I’ve been using Gay Social Dating sites for almost 15 years now as I started to use it when I was 17.Recently; Gay dating became easier as various apps became available right in your phone.  I must admit that part of growing; I was once an active user of such online dating feature. 

 I can still remember how I was willing to meet random guys that I’ve talked online. I allowed them to enter my life as I was under the impression that online dating is a way for me to find my better half. At first, it failed and I tried, and failed and tried again. The history kept repeating and unconsciously I was addicted to it.

Until ... at my age of 30, I’m becoming more mature and got a different way of seeing things. I decided to delete these apps in my phone wherein one time – it poisoned my youngness. For the span of 15 years of using -both gay dating sites and apps, meeting random guys and sleeping with them; I never ever got any benefits aside from the satisfaction of my carnal needs.  Indeed, It didn’t boost me as Jonathan Orbuda at all.

But I was still thankful because, involving myself to such apps made me experience on how to become more socially incline to diverse people that I’ve met. I was able to experience, masasabi kong hindi rin ako naging ignorante. But, I’m done with it.

Watch the video below as I’ll delete all my Gay Dating Apps in my phone. I will also tell you my top 10 reasons why I decided to stop this kind of activity.

To all young ones, please share this video because I made this – just for you. I’m happy that I was able to make this stage. And now masasabi, graduate na ako. Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship. And by using Dating Apps is not advisable because it lessen the meaning of DATING.

Openly Gay Cop from New York Tries Filipino Delicacies,


Advertisement by Google:
Carlos is all the way from U.S. and he dropped-by in my place to visit me. I offered him some Filipino Delicacies and let him eat those. Carlos Crespo also known as Tony is one of the 69 police officers awarded a medal of valor. Indeed, he is the first openly-gay cop who received it due to his heroic act when he was still there.

According to New York Times , Officer Crespo was working at the 24th Precinct on the Upper West Side on Sept. 5, 1995, when a knife-wielding man lunged at another officer. As his colleague fought with the attacker, Officer Crespo tried to knock the knife away and was stabbed in the chest. He and another officer then shot the intruder dead, but a stray bullet hit Officer Crespo in the knee. Officer Crespo suffered a collapsed lung and was out of action for four months.

After 20 years of service, he retired and start travelling and creating video for his channel. And now, he is visiting Philippines. I am honoured to have him in my channel.

In this video, I let him try the popular Filipino Delicacies –eg, Chicaron, Yema, Piaya, Sampaloc, Tira-Tira, Banana Chips, Penoy and Balot. Chicharrón is a dish generally consisting of fried pork belly or fried pork rinds; chicharrón may also be made from chicken, mutton, or beef. While Yema is a type of Filipino candy named after the Spanish term for egg yolks – mixed of condense milk.

Piaya sometimes spelled piyaya, is a muscovado-filled unleavened flatbread from the Philippines especially common in Negros Occidental where it is a popular delicacy. It is made by filling dough with a mixture of muscovado and glucose syrup. The filled dough is then flattened with a rolling pin, sprinkled with sesame. Sampaloc is a sweetened tamarind. Tira-tira is made of old coconut cooked in brown sugar. And Banana Chips are chopped fried banana with glaze. Lastly, Penoy is an unfertilized duck egg without yolk formation when screened against a lighted candle or electric bulb also known as the candling process; while balut is the fertilized one.

2017 YEAR-END SPECIAL - I Love Tansyong TV REWIND.


Advertisement by Google:
One year of joy, laughter and fun. There were times that I was down but 2017 gave me the lesson - never give up on my dreams. Indeed, I must say while looking back to my 2017, I’ve changed on how I should see life.

When I was not in Youtube, I spent my time going to work and writing articles for my blog; and when I was introduced into Youtubing , I enjoyed it a lot. My creativity became more dynamic and I am excited going to work as I have something to look forward after I ended my shift – doing contents for my Youtube Channel when I arrived at home.

I had so many things to be grateful in my 2017. I have my challenging yet stable job that pays my bill, I was able to purchase my first ever camera, I was able to have my Samsung s8 Plus, and above all – I made it on Youtube while I am a full-time employee. Moreover, I am now living in my own condo unit, and I got sick only twice for the whole year. I met a lot of random people as I became more socially incline because of the numerous events that I attended.

I was able to attend my Alumni Home Coming in Province of Bohol, and joined Fiesta Celebration. I won in a Dance Battle.  I became a Pedicab Driver for a day. I got my first brand deal in 2017 (Shopback)  and followed by more opportunities after (, Urban Deca Homes). It was truly a challenging year yet a fruitful one in a positive note. I became conscious on time management since I am a full-time employee and a part-time youtuber and blogger. Undeniably, 2017 taught me a lot of things.


There were times , I was about to give up as I am sick and tired of everything but seeing those supporters who kept on commenting my videos made me stronger to stand up and create awesome contents for them and for myself.  I learnt how to talk in front of the camera and gained confident despite of the distractive criticism online.

MY TOP 10 of 2017
1. Disclosing My HIV Status
2. Britney Spears Live in MNL
4. My Gratitude Video
5. My First Ever Video Camera.
6. My Samsung S8 Plus.

[WATCH] A Formal Cooking Show Turns Into a Comedy Vlog.


Advertisement by Google:
After we finished distributing the goods to the street children along Roxas Boulevard in Malate, Manila; we – the Pinoys Heart Britney together with yours truly- headed towards Ortigas , Pasig City as William Pombo booked an overnight  room for us at Oakwood Premier Joy- Nostalg Hotel.  The said overnight stay-cation is a celebration for the success of “Why Don’t You Do Somethin’?- Charity event.

We arrived at 10PM in the hotel; the others were assigned to buy stuff for our dinner and the other half were assigned to cook. It was agreed that we’re gonna cook our dinner just to feel the celebration (YUNG TIPONG NAGHAHANDA which is a Filipino Culture). Well, it was crazy as I took advantage of the clean and pleasant kitchen of the hotel. I came up an idea of filming the cooking session of ROY (one of the Britney Armies). Honestly, it was actually my first time to meet these guys during the event (except William Pombo since he is my office-mate); and truly, cooking is really the best way for bonding and knowing them personally.

In fact, the planned-party became a cooking show and later on, turned into a comical vlog. Originally, I was just planning to create a formal cooking show just like Erwan Heussaff ‘s Youtube Channel but sadly, it became a hilarious content as everyone is punching a joke. The others were even disturbing us while filming.


Undeniably, I should say that I love the companion of these guys. We’re all diverse and has different upbringing but the overnight stay-cation with them runs harmoniously – full of laughter and joy. Thank you guys for the experience and merry Christmas.

Filipino Fans Emulate Britney Spears’ Philanthropic Act in the Course of Gift-Giving To Street Children.


Advertisement by Google:

“Not all are aware that Britney Spears is a Philanthropist, mostly to majority of kids that has cancer, and that’s what we (Britney Army in the Philippines) are trying to emulate here.” William Pombo, a member of Pinoys Heart Britney, a fan-based community of Britney in the Philippines.

On December 17, 2017, as a social media influencer, I was invited to join and cover a charity-oriented activity named “Why Don't You Do Something”. The said event is emphasizing and giving love during Christmas season as the participants give some used clothes, second-hand toys, books and foods to the street children living along Roxas Boulevard in the heart of Malate, Manila.

“This is actually our fifth year but our first four years were only being held in Cebu City. Indeed, it is our first year to execute such charitable-centric program here, in Luzon” William Pombo added.

Pinoys Heart Britney collates donation from its members, some donated used clothes, books, and toys; members who are financially stable donated cash to buy foods while those members who are still studying offer their time and strength to help make the event possible.

The volunteers strode the stretch of (Baywalk) Roxas Blvd, and (sidewalk) Pedro Gil St. to distribute the goods. Undeniably, it was quite risky as there are few street peddlers who were under the influence of solvent (drugs), stopped them and forcefully grabbed the goods. The original plan was just to give only to the street children yet it wasn’t perfectly executed due to the fact that there were by-standers harassing the volunteers and forcibly snatched the goods while sauntering the area.


“We can no longer control the scenario nor change it; this is really the situation of Roxas Blvd. We already did out part, however, the important is the spirit and thought of giving this Christmas that somehow it touches their lives and I’m pretty sure , they’ll also pay it forward to other people they knew.” Pombo uttered in an emotional voice.

Meanwhile, the Pinoys Heart Britney CEBU Chapter was also successful in executing the same event.

Truly, as an eye-witness and a part of the event, it was really indescribable feeling- seeing those people genuinely smiling because of the small gift that they received seemingly they felt being valued. That is the spirit of Christmas – giving love and care, not just only to our family but to the whole humanity.

Sense of Belongingness is one of the reasons why we joined a group. Do you still remember the time that you joined in a club during your college or high school days? It was because you considered that group a haven where you can execute your passion.

On December 10,2017. A facebook group of Pinoy Content Creators named Youtube Vloggers Philippines (#YTVPH) organized a year-end party held at The Regency Hotel, Meralco Avenue, Ortigas, and Pasig City. The party has an entrance fee which was amounting to PHP 400 for all professionals and working creators while only PHP250 for students; and the said event was participated by numerous aspiring Content Creators in the country. Indeed, when I said “aspiring” – it means they’re small time youtubers who are passionately creating awesome videos and uploading it in the social media.

“The good thing with - Small time youtubers with zero to thousands subscribers-, we helped each other to grow. I can see how they started and how they became confident on their craft” said Gab Jornacion, one of the proponents of the event.

The party lasted for four hours with full of performances from the talented youtubers – violinist, guitarist and singer. There were raffles and giveaways from different sponsors and I was lucky to get a 3D-2N free travel to Ilocos . Moreover, foods and drinks were served right at the start of the party. The highlight of the said event happened on the last part wherein I had to meet the content creators and mingle with them. It was undeniably cool seeing everyone’s talking to their own camera.

 I can feel the sense of belongingness – all of them were crazy.

[WATCH] How I Spent My Weekend as a #Youtuber? #Lagari


Hi Tansyong Lovers*, in this #vlog of mine; I am trying to document my busy weekend. It was November 11, 2017 when my Saturday had a fully loaded schedule. In fact, my “OUT” from work was 6AM on Saturday as I had my regular night-shift on Friday from 9PM to 6AM. I arrived home at 7AM and took a power nap for 2 hours. I had to wake up at 9:00 AM since I have a breakfast with my office-mate.  Then went back home after breakfast to take another sleep for two hours, woke up at 12NN to prepare for Film-making Workshop.

I left home early at 12:30 PM and arrived in Cubao at 1PM. I have to wait another one hour in Cubao – “tagal kasi ng inaantay ko na co-youtuber na si Jeyps”.

Sa sobrang late niya, nauna na lang ako sa UP town center, wherein dun gaganapin ang workshop with Direk Bani Logronio” .

I didn’t expect ang traffic pala sa Tandang Sora A.K.A Katipunan. I arrived at the Workshop 30 minutes before matapos. Actually, one thing I’ve learned from the workshop – do not wait for someone who will surely arrive late; instead mauna nalang. 

After the workshop, (actually meet and greet ang nangyare dahil di ako umabot sa discussion) then I have to go to McKinley Hills for a 2-hour gym session. Subsequently, went to Paranaque for a Dance Practice and headed back to McKinley Hills to grab a bite and went back home.

Honestly speaking, this content is my first attempt to #vlog my life in a whole day setting. It wasn’t easy, yet very fulfilling because while editing – then I’d realize I was able to accomplish a lot of things within a day. In addition to that, I was also able vlog it.

Watch the video below and tell me kung may time pa ba ako mag JOWA. WTF, I even don’t have time to shave my facial hair, magjowa pa kaya. Time management is the key pero kawawa naman katawan ko niyan. HAHAHA!

Thanks for watching Tansyong Lovers, I hope you enjoyed it.

Travel fitness: Tips on Packing, clothes, and gear


Advertisement by Google:
First things first, what luggage are you taking? You will need to decide whether you're choosing rolling luggage or a backpack. Of course, if your plan is to go backpacking the latter is the best choice for you. Otherwise, rolling luggage is a great plan as it's easy to get around with. You can choose one small enough to take as hand luggage or opt for something larger for longer trips. For the shorter trips, though, you may want to consider a traditional backpack as it will help you limit your packing.


With a bit of planning and organisation, the sky really is the limit when it comes to packing smart.

This is a time to be ruthless because not everything can come. Think about what items you can easily buy when you arrive at your destination, what items will likely be available where you are staying, and what you can't possibly live without for your time away. This should make the decision process a bit simpler.

Socks can be slipped into shoes; you can roll clothes within clothes. There are plenty of innovative ways to get everything in there. You should be able to balance your needs with your wants between your checked luggage and hand luggage. Remember to keep any valuables with you on the plane, though you should avoid travelling with anything too valuable.


Before you can pack a single item of clothing (well, beyond undergarments and socks) you need to check the weather for your chosen destination. If you will be travelling to multiple places then you'll need to check the weather for each place to be sure you are covered for every eventuality. It's a good idea to invest in rain clothing so that you can throw it over your clothes and not worry about getting saturated while out and about.

Chinos are a great option because they wear well, are easy to mix and match with outfits, and are lighter in comparison to jeans. So, consider a few pairs of chinos and bring extra tops so you can easily mix and match as required. Another important thing to consider is outerwear like sweaters. Rather than packing lots of heavy items, layering up is easier so bring lighter items and wear multiples if the weather dictates.

When it comes to shoes try to limit this as they get heavy. You'll want comfortable shoes for walking, a nicer pair of shoes for any dinners you have planned, and a spare pair for any other eventuality (for sunny destinations this is likely flip flops or sandals).

Don't forget gloves, scarf, and umbrella if it's going to be cold on your travels. You may also want to consider thicker socks for this type of trick.


The most important thing for anyone these days - chargers! Whether it's laptops, phones or tablets – you need to make sure those (and their chargers) are packed handy so you can easily grab them when you need them. Ideally, those are for your hand luggage and most airports now offer ports in the lounges.

Now, don't forget your toiletries. If you aren't checking any luggage you will need to keep your liquids separate from the rest as they have to be produced at security. So, bear that in mind as you are packing. Luckily, you are now allowed to take a razor on the aeroplane, so you don't need to worry about that. You should also pack a spare, empty bag to keep your dirty laundry in. You may have access to laundry facilities and you may not, so you should be prepared for that. Don't be afraid to hand wash some items in the hotel sink, though.

If you're going backpacking then there are other things to consider, such as maps, guides, long-life snacks, and water bottles. This is a real test of your creative packing skills as you are working with much less space, but will likely be on a longer trip. Think about what you will really need to get through your trip and strip everything back to the basics. You can hand wash clothing as you travel and re-wear many items multiple times.

There's a great wide world out there and it's just waiting for you to explore it, so what are you waiting for? Make sure you check out the incredible Holiday deals @, why not get your next trip at a bargain-basement price?

Dance To Express; Not To Impress. Dance From The Soul; Not Just From The Choreography.

It has been many years guys na di na ako sumayaw. As far as I remember, the last time that I compete in a dance battle was way-back in my college days. Indeed, I am already 30 years old now, so basically that was almost 10 years ago. But the burning passion is still in my soul specially ng sumali ako sa nakaraang STOMP Dance battle November 19, 2017 sa The Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan.

Undeniably, tumanda na nga ako pero the feeling when I heard the shout of the massive audience, the lights, the smoke and the beat of the music – it seemed that It was not a competition to me. Hence, It was like a time travel back to my younger days, those moments when I simultaneously went to school and accept dancing tutorial for an extra cash (for my allowance). I really love dancing, but when I entered to the real world – I just realized that my passion in dancing cannot subsidy my expenses .And so, I let go my passion and continue working as to what is really requisite in survival.

However, no matter how you let go and set aside your passion, it is already grass-rooted deep within – whenever an opportunity comes, it will just come out naturally. Honestly, nung sumayaw ako nito , never ko inisip na mananalo ako, ang tanging gusto ko lang maramdaman ko ulit ang feeling na nararamdaman ko 10 years ago.

With that being said, it just happened.  I savoured every beat of the music, I enjoyed the two minutes dance routine and I traveled back to where I started – a Young Jonathan Orbuda who was dreaming originally to be a professional dancer.
“How I wish, my past Grandparents witness me how I enjoyed what I did.”

“I am pretty sure, they’re proud of me”.


Sad part; when the music ended, it was time for me to go back to the reality. I have to go back to my 30 years old persona and leave my college memories in the history. Yet when the time I become older, I’ll surely enjoy reminiscing it while sitting on my rocking chair.
