The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk & Coffee

Milk and Coffee Adventures

This is actually a dream come true!

Last July, I opened a new domain on wordpress to give space to my much awaiting comics, which is The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. It’s a bunch of Filipino (Tagalog) comic strips that focuses on the friendship of the characters Milk and Coffee and friends.

The story line came out of no where, when I kept on wearing my weird shades and I started drawing my mini me. That’s explain why ‘Coffee’ had this bug-eye/heart-shaped shades. While the other characters are based on people I encounter and some friends.

The comics is in Tagalog, so sorry for the English-speaking fellas who are following me. It’s actually a risk because I don’t have an idea how it will go since I’m never familiar with the local SEO and how the new site’s Google ranking will climb up. Plus the fact that it’ll be composed of mostly images, I think it will be a great challenge for me.

But anyway, to my Filipino friends here, please support The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. I’d appreciate it if you will follow and like our posts both on blogs and Facebook.

This blog will never close, by the way. I have plenty of poems to share to you, so please, please stay tuned!

Ms. Universe 2012 — Ms. USA!

2012-12-20T033603Z_812587860_GM1E8CK0W2U01_RTRMADP_3_USA

3 days ago, Ms. USA Olivia Culpo was crowned as the Ms. Universe 2012. I could not still move on, so as many Filipinos. Of course, in our hearts and minds, our very own Ms. Philippines Janine Tugonon should have won the title, because not only she answered the question gracefully but she just really deserve the title.

Different reactions came across our houses and offices as we stayed tune via all means – Facebook, livestream, text messages and Twitter. At the end of the day, we were all in silence. Actually, I treated myself for an ice cream just to coup up the frustration and the disappointment. But things has already happened, according to the Pinay beauty queen, it was the judges decision and we should accept it.

Janine Tugonon has competed with 89 other hopefuls.

She was called from Top 16 with the following candidates:

1. Venezuela

2. Turkey

3. France

4. Peru

5. Russia

6. Mexico

7. Poland

8. Hungary

9. South Africa

10.Philippines

11.Croatia

12.Brazil

13.Kosovo

14.Australia

15.India

And, Top 10 with the following girls:

1. Australia

2. Russia

3. Brazil

4. France

5. Venezuela

6. USA

7. Hungary

8. South Africa

9. Mexico

10. Philippines

Ms. Philippines was the only Asian who made to the top 10 and got the title next to the Ms. Universe in this year’s competition. Despite of not bring home the crown, Filipinos and fans are still proud of her. In fact, she will be awarded with recognition in her hometown in Bataan, Philippines as soon as she arrives.

For me, everyone in the competition deserves to win, because that’s their purpose of being there. But we cannot remove the fact that people, rather than the judges, know the best. In Ms. Universe pageant, it just proven that Filipinos are already back on track to prove that we deserve to be recognized, not just with our beauty and talents, but also for what we are – the best among the rest.

We still hope for the crown next time, for sure our candidate will give their best shot.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

The 1st Filipino Bloggers Worldwide Grand Eyeball

I’M BACK!

securedownload

I was supposed to be in the office yesterday but I filed my vacation leave to give way to this much awaiting Filipino Bloggers Worldwide Event – the Filipino Bloggers Worldwide 1st Grand Eyeball at the SM Megatrade Hall 2. This was the first event that I attended for the sake of my blog. I’ve never been to any event like this before where I’ve seen my fellow bloggers rubbing elbows with each other, and I didn’t imagine that it was really fun!

I registered and got my invitation to this event a couple weeks ago. I was actually nervous. I thought it would be a very intimidating event because, you know, I would be with the Philippine’s famous bloggers – you know, mine is just one of the blogs somewhere out there. Good thing, my friend Ron, blogger of Nite Writer, was also coming so we went there together.

Venue

Unfortunately, I wasn’t the early bird – thanks to the Friday night heavy traffic – I was there just right on time.  Venue was held at the 5th floor SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 2.

I was expecting a few people to come but I’ve seen and met a lot of big time bloggers from the FBW group on Facebook. I’ve seen plenty of sponsors too. It’s too many to mention but I’ve recognized Ystillo (by Vina Morales), the thirst-quenching tea by Share Tea and the prize I was eyeing for, Manny O. wines.

The event was hosted by Admin Franc and the funny Ness who always noticed me laughing hard. They are the bloggers of “http://nessmercader.tumblr.com” and “http://francramon.com” and the people I mostly see on our Facebook group and my twitter feeds. At the beginning of the event, they introduced the sponsors and the admin of FBW and also the super early bird of the event.

Plus, I get to enjoy the Share Tea’s Winter Melon and one of our bloggers’ cute little cupcakes! Unfortunately, there was no mochi. I was little expecting for it, but it was okay. :p

Highlights, Awards, Prizes and Giveaways.

One of the purposes I went there is to grab knowledge from co-bloggers on how to get blogs known. Fortunately, Jason Cruz of MRM gave us helpful insights on teaching bloggers how to blog. That was a short speech but it opens a lot of idea bulb on top of my head.
