Top 10 Reasons Why There Couldn't Be a Filipino-American US President

By David Letterman

10. The White House is not big enough for in-laws and extended relatives.
9. There are not enough parking spaces at the White House for 2 Honda Civics,
2 Toyota Land Cruisers, 3 Toyota Corollas, a Mercedes Benz, a BMW , and
an MPV (My Pinoy Van).

8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with their fingers at State dinners.

7. There are too many dining rooms in the White House – where will they put
the picture of the Last Supper?

6. The White House walls are not big enough to hold a pair of giant wooden
spoon and fork.

5. Secret Service staff won't respond to "psst… psst" or "hoy.hoyhoy!"

4. Secret Service staff will not be comfortable driving the presidential car with a Holy Rosary hanging on the rear view mirror, or the statue of the Santo Nino on the dashboard.

3. No budget allocation to purchase a Karaoke music-machine for every room in the White House.

2. State dinners do not allow "Take Home".


1. Air Force One does not allow overweight Balikbayan boxes!


Thirsty Thursday @ Home

I've been sick the whole week and it progressed day by day. Started with itchy throat on Monday and fever on Tuesday. By Wednesday, I can feel my Asthma just lingering around together with some chest congestion. And here comes Thursday, they all came together as if it was a grand reunion of the whole week. LOL!

I've been thinking of puffing some from my inhaler but I'm not one to rely on it. I've had inhalers for the longest time but because of stories that I've heard from the inhaler dependents, I am too scared to be one.

I decided to take two puffs on Thursday finally. Lil stupid me didn't check my puff count and thought off looking at the expiration date. All I know was this was subscribed to me last on 2009. Sure enough, my inhaler has been expired since January of 2009. No wonder my throat has been extra dry whenever I take it whenever I have attacks when I'm playing volleyball or having bad allergy attacks.

I called my friend who works for the clinic if he can fit me in to a last minute appointment and thankfully there was one right after work. I was able to get three years supply of inhalers and I am good to go! YAY!

I am known for some Thirsty Thursdays event together with my closest friends. The club is not too packed for us to dance and get our drinks without too many hassles. PLUS! There is Amateur Strip Show (ASS) hosted by our favorite Lady Chablis.

It was perfect timing that my Pinoy (Filipino) Bakla's (Gays) have planned to hang out at my place and chill with food and drinks. Even though I'm bummed that I missed Thirsty Thursdays, Thirsty Thursdays was sent to me. Haha!

They brought some DiGiorno for dinner and some Chicken.

We chilled in my living room with some Vodka and some Volleyball action on my DVR!

Hopefully I get better soon. I hate being sick and hopefully this is it for my flu season sickness. I've paid my dues and hopefully NO MORE! As soon as that free flu shot at work comes out, I'll be first in line.

Jade Richards X-Factor UK - Someone Like You by Adele

The X-Factor mania is all over the internet. Whatever country you are from whether you have X-Factor is playing in your country or not, you are probably loving the show.

Saw this on Facebook and my heart melted. Adele is one of my favorite artist ever and this girl, Jade Richards killed it singing Someone like you by Adele on the UK X-Factor.



Valentin Chmerkovskiy on DWTS

I've been following Dancing with the Stars probably since it started. And it is no denying that they have a lot of hotties on that show, Pro dancers or the Stars.

One that Hollywood and probably a lot of fans have been hot for is Maksim Chmerkovskiy. I totally agree with this not until his brother Valentin Chmerkovskiy came in.

The Dancing with the Stars premier was tonight and my jaw dropped when I saw Val. I mean I've seen him dance in the show before on gusting but more of Val this season works for me.

Lame screenshots down below but it's the most I can do for now...

saw this pic on google images and thought it was HOT!


I can always trust my iPhone for capturing the best moments ever. haha!

Are you Team Maks or Team Val?

Do you think Val is HOTTER than his brother Maksim?


Ask Liz

I've been following a lot of the fashion bloggers from the Philippines and just wanting to know and latest trends back home. I got sucked into it and been looking for websites where I can do some online damage. haha!

Thank God for Liz Uy! One of the top stylist in the Philippines for opening her new blog dedicated for some Q&A about fashion. I took a stab of sending her an email and to my surprise she replied and posted it on her blog!

This was my email to Liz

And her reply!

I'm definitely excited to check out these sites and see what kind of damage I can. Can't wait for accessories galore and some good finds!

Check out her blog and watch for her latest tips!
Thanks Liz!!!


America's Got Talent - Silhouettes (Believe) - Top 10 Semi-Finals 2011

I haven't really followed this season much but watch it whenever I can and last night's episode can't be more than just perfect.

I couldn't help but get emotional with this performance. The message, the kids, the groups story all together just touches my heart.

Who is your favorite this season?

Quiambao-Altares Nuptials

This post has been long way overdue.

One of my closest co-worker Rizza got married on August 5 at the Thornewood Castle down in Lakewood, WA. Such a romantic place not to mention its history.

I've known Rizza ever since I started working at the hospital (she got hired 2 months ahead of me) and its the "newbie" connection that we had that made us connect more than anybody else at work and of course her knowledge with the Philippine gay lingo got us even closer. Haha!

When I saw her post that she got engaged (of course on Facebook), I couldn't wait to see her at work and check out her ring.

taken Feb 2010

I immediately told her that as a gift, I would do her make-up on her wedding even if at that time they didnt have a set date yet. I'ts been my passion to do make-up and even tried to make it as part time career. I love dolling up girls or even "girls" and seeing them look at themselves and be happy and be more confident.

I went to her dad's place where she stayed for the night since its a tradition for a couple not to see each other the night before their wedding. We were running late since she didn't get done on time after getting her hair done from the salon (i opted out from doing her hair since its not my expertise).

Here are some pics while we were getting ready taken by his brother Michael...

Such a busy girl that day and phone calls won't stop!

She wanted a really simple and matte look. She doesn't wear make up on a regular basis and we didn't want her to look overly done.

Funny story... this girl doesn't even know how to put on lipstick. I had to tell her to think about putting chapsticks on but she was still clueless. haha!

I look so gross!!! It was an early day and we were just rushing because she had to leave for pictorials and I have to get ready at home as well.

She hated how her hair turned out and I had to fix it a little. It was too flat and pulled away from her face so I gave it a lil lift.

I love this shot! They bought another engagement ring. She said Bogs wanted more formal than what she got when he just proposed to her.

I was telling her that this was supposed to be Eiryl's job and not mine. Fixing her and on her gown and veil but I loved helping out.

This was taken from outside her dad's place. It was such a pretty day and the natural lighting just brings out her natural beauty. OKkkkk!

Below are some sample pictures sent to her by the professional photographer for her wedding
Yuen Lui Studio
(somehow the quality of the picture is better on its original size so I apologize for the huge pics)

I love this candid shot. It shows how happy she was on her day.

I love her bouquet. It was made by her Uncle from Canada (i think) while we were doing her make up earlier in the morning.

I don't know why but I find this picture so seductive. Probably one of my favorite shots from the wedding.

These two shots are another fave! She looked so pretty and glowing.

Her gown was so simple but yet striking. Shows how simple she was but at the same time can command a room with her natural beauty.

Lil story... I've known Bogs since probably when he was about 16 years old or even younger. I met him and his sisters through a friends cousin who had her 18 years debut ball (think Quinceanera). And it's kinda weird that he is getting married now. Makes me feel old. Haha!

He looked really good in a suit which I never see him in one. Safe to say he is a dashing groom.

Bogs with the boys!!!

And Bogs with the Boyz!!!

Bogs with Tita (Auntie) wearing a dress in my favorite color!

The Bride and some of her BFF's!!!

The Bride with her Girls!

Ok, here is the sad part, I missed the ceremonies :(. NOPE! Not because I was late coz of me but Rizza asked me a huge favor to stop by their apartment to pick up some important documents that they needed. One of which is the alcohol permit which made me mad because all they have was champagne (which I don't drink because it gives me major hang over). But she is the Queen of the day and I have to make her happy on her special day. (You read that Rizza? The Queen. Make her happy) LOL!

The dramatic entrance in the garden.

The Ceremonies.


Mr. & Mrs. Quiambao

Love these shots of the newlyweds! It looks so adorable!!!

the Bride's side of the family.

I couldn't find a shot of Bogs family but here is a pic of Tita and sisters Eiryl (my best gf) and Unique (3 girls on right side)

Rizza's dad giving out some speech. Bogs looked so scared. haha!

I loved the cake though I don't remember having some. Haha!
Again, simplicity was definitely her theme.

Back stage pass...
Here are two pictures when we tried out what was her ideal look for her wedding.. 

We went for the subtle look and just a clean face.

I took this pictures from my iPhone. Gotta love iPhotography! haha!

I absolutely love this shot! (tear)

Eiryl and Unique surprised the couple with a get away car.
Mini Cooper? Doing it in style.

I wish them the best of luck, a super long marriage and tons of kids! I'm so happy to be part/partially witness your bond and can't wait what the future brings the both of you!
