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.

Thank you so much!

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


Life Tonight

Title: Life Tonight
By: Francis Moje

My life tonight, you can be my love and honey
My Kyptonite, you can be my everything.
You showered me with smile,
That what makes my heart melt.
I love you, my soul, my forever,
Give me chance just for tonight.

You knew, that you’re my ideal one,
That someone I will always love.
I love the small things you were giving,
I no longer have to demand.
You may live for the rest of your days,
Give me chance just for tonight.

Life Tonight, I must be dreaming
Life Tonight, I will cherish this forever.
Life Tonight, give me warm like a red wine.
Oh, my life tonight, you are my life tonight.


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.

All-in-all I really enjoyed the event and I hope there would be another one soon. Nice to meet all the bloggers! It’s true when Orly Ballesteros said that “I always believe in this dictum: there are no strangers only friends you haven’t met.”

Wanna Be By Spice Girls (JaMaWaKen And Friends COVER)

Stressed and time-pressured, we refreshed ourselves by doing something we were really ought to do, that’s to create a music video cover. This was taken a couple of weeks ago when we organized a friend’s debut party. Please watch…

This was planned even before the “Call me maybe” video of the Preview cover girls appeared.

We chose “Wanna Be” by Spicegirls simply because it’s one of our barkada songs, and Warner Diong, the guy wearing white shirt in the video, was an avid fan of the amazing girl band.

Hope you all like it.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO


Instagram 101 — part 2

To be honest, I’m starting to love Instagram. It goes well with my Camer360 shots. I didn’t know the two would be a great combination.

And before I write something about Instagram as a social network site, here are some of my sample shots:

I used Nashville effect in most of the photos; my favorite.

By the way, above is our new puppy, Sanchai. She was a gift from one of our neighbors. I ain’t familiar with her breed, since I wasn’t at home when she was given to us. She’s very cute, though, isn’t she?

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO


Power of Megapixel – Holy Week

Holyweek was a blast. Although my mood was not that boombastic as the long weekend, I still managed to do some stuff to keep lenten season a bit solemn. What I did is that I put it all in pictures…

You know, pictures are quiet — no sound, no motion.

This chicken here. Well, he was a super model. I got this perfect while he was observing what I’m doing.

Friends also visited us at home. So we had a good time together and been to the church to pray.

Here was a shot from inside an FX (cab). I was on my way home from work.

These two? I know I should’ve got rid of this during the week. But these were my thirst quenchers and I have already asked for forgiveness about this.

To tell you what, I’m still tired because of that long walk. I just drew some stuff on my sketch pad just to make my whole being relaxed.

XOXOXOXOXOXO


Chicago Candy

image

I miss when I call you my candy
And the taste of iodize shot on your body
At the midnight jazz club
— that’s where you left me.

Your sweetness-coated embraces took me.
I never experienced hangover, baby.
As people go partying,
We took the moment talking.

Oh Chicago, I miss you so!
I want that candy you gave me.
I want that sweetness that made me crazy.
Oh Chicago, Im so sorry for leaving!
I didn’t want let you go
But, baby, it’s yours… so take it — Chicago Candy.

Others weren’t as sweet as you are    
But you’re the one who can make me a real man.
And beat what you have done
At the midnight jazz club

You cut the cigar from my mouth, oh
Baby, you left me alone here
While crying and begging
For you, my Chicago candy!

Oh Chicago, I miss you so!
I want that candy you gave me.
Oh Chicago, sorry for leaving!
I would let go of that candy
It’s yours, so take it!
