POSTCARD #6: Say Yes Mural at Fitzroy, Melbourne 2017

It’s three in the morning and I can’t sleep. I haven’t been writing, and I can’t really share anything ~current~ for now. But this postcard will do. I thought I’d write you one.

I was in Australia when people were asked to vote for marriage equality. It wasn’t even a vote to make it law but the energy throughout the city can be felt. I knew immediately they would say yes. Or at least 57.8% of them.

I would see the rainbow flag anywhere – in posters, in lights, in the fricking city hall. In murals, especially. I love how the city bloomed with art in this occasion – like there’s no other way to do it.

And in December, it was made law. Gay people can marry in Australia. And it was beautiful. So, so beautiful.

Traveling can indeed open your eyes but also leave oneself with frustration; and ask – why do I stay where I do?

Can’t wait to travel again.

#Bangcock Day 2.5: HANGOVER TOUR!!! (Plus pictures I prolly shouldn’t have taken yet still safe for work)

And the sleaze starts right here right now

IMG_5968IMG_5969IMG_5970

For some people, Bangkok is the capital of sleaze in Southeast Asia. Known for its pretty ladyboys for and not for hire (not to mention affordable sex-change surgeries), exotic and bizarre sex shows, and hangovers from shit you prolly shouldn’t have taken. We have Hollywood and a thousand and one guides to the central hub of the banana pancake trail to thank for having, albeit small, a picture of what Bangkok’s dark side is.

This time though I wouldn’t pass the opportunity up to see it for my own eyes. Nothing screams like #Bangcock than taking The Hangover Tour! The guys from this tour company gave us the lowdown on what can be seen in the sleazy sois of Patpong and Nana entertainment complexes. They also will bring you to key locations of the Hangover II movie – from where the ladyboys are to where the real action is! Depends to you what action you want though – we chose to be dirty all the way – from a bar where ladies with no underwear dance to GAY GUYS SUCKING EACH OTHER’S COCKS. ON. STAGE. Yepp, you heard it right – on stage! Feast on your carnal desires with your eyes. You can give in to it, though make sure you brought enough baht since they don’t swipe cards using their asses!

How much sleaze goes around Bangkok, you ask? From the moment the sun goes down… IT’S EVERYWHERE, but especially in Nana (Sukhumvit) and Patpong (Silom). The whole soi is teeming with men, women, and transwomen.

IMG_5983Yepp, they don’t allow people to take photos, but this was literally shot from the hip. I might be in trouble for posting this, but what the hell.

IMG_5984IMG_5986

There were also a lot of handsome afam, some pretty drunk enough to not realize you’re hitting on them. Hehehehe. I really wouldn’t find a hook up here, but the sight was very welcome. I MEAN THE FIRST FEW BARS WE WENT TO ARE FILLED WITH GIRLS. Nothing against, but this gay guy is pretty sure he’s playing for the other team, if you know what I mean 😛

IMG_5987

When we got to Spanky’s in Nana Plaza though I was hella buzzed already. Mama got one too many Changs to know what she’s doin’ yo! Spanky’s is where they spank you real hard for the love your sunburn. So yeah, don’t go if you have any burns because it’ll hurt. But this drunk boy just had to go on stage and… TWERK. Yes, I twerked like no one’s watching. I twerked like I was in my bedroom. I twerked… and Miley would approve. That’s while being spanked mind you — and I didn’t know — while a real girl (uhhhhhhhh yeah if I knew I would’ve freaked, so I did afterwards) was HUMPING me. Mama got one too many Changs to know what she’s doin’ mhmm alright.

IMG_5988Patpong knows it best

IMG_5990

The stories of the famous ping pong shows were no hoax! This is probably where I was amazed and grossed out all at the same time. No spoilers, but I just have to mention that they shoot darts using their vajayjay. LIKE WHOSE JAW WON’T DROP WIDE OPEN ON THAT. The last performance though was the climax though – like real climax. Yes, if you’re too young to read this, stop reading, or just don’t tell your parents what you read *wink, wink*

IMG_5991IMG_5992

But of course, I wouldn’t pass up on the gay show even if it costed us almost another thousand baht. Don’t care, wouldn’t care, even it actually threw my budget off. Kebs na mga baklaaaa! I wouldn’t have done this anywhere else but here. What I liked about The Hangover Tour is that they swear to get you good seats without getting scammed; with drinks to boot! And I must tell you this, from gay guy to another gay guy – the sightseeing was well worth it. With and without underwear, those Asian boys are indeed ripe for the picking (photo below). I haven’t seen that much showboys in my life. AND I MUST ABSOLUTELY MENTION AGAIN THAT THERE WERE BLOWJOB SHOWS THAT TOOK PLACE. There. To the tune of, was that Rihanna or Lady Gaga? I really wasn’t paying attention anymore.

IMG_5995IMG_5997IMG_5998The Hangover Team gave Val a shirt for her birthday! Yay!

[Midweek Challenge] 90’s Bitches

It’s the midweek and god knows it’s TGIAF: Thank God It’s Almost Friday!

You can’t quite go out drinking/partying/dancing in the moonlight/whatever it is that you do but you’re in need of a good something. So hey, I went to my favorite music streaming service (hey y’all Spotify) and made a midweek playlist! I called it The Bitches just because. These power bitch tunes are my fuel at work when I need to shut everything off and focus. Mama knows she needs to grind and (t)werq ’cause she werqs hard for the money! I mean, I know it supposed to be relaxing and soothing and whatnot but my brain is aching for some 90’s girl power meets millenial bitches that matter.

Plus I need to imbibe that bitchiness because boys come in the weekends. H E L L O O O O O O !

So if some of the office peeps ’round are reading – yeah me gyrating on my desk is real.

And for good measure, let’s throw in Troye Sivan’s TRXYE (oh god my midweek is sounding so trippy good thanks to this bb)

JUST. BECAUSE. OKAY.

What’s going on and distracted thoughts, basically

hithere

It’s been a while since I posted something personal here. I guess I am all so caught up catching up with real life that sometimes I forget to update. However, whenever I post here, I feel excited too, because I have a lot of stories to share (not necessarily would matter to you though.) So that’s one thing too — so much to tell, so distracted to start with, so little time. And speaking of time, I’m still adjusting to my new sched (follow me on Twitter, to tired to talk about this haha aka lame trick to have you follow me on Twitter.) Most of the time I’m cramming in sleep and always half-afraid I won’t wake up on time. One day, I’ll be able to adjust (I hope.) And my fascination with parenthetical phrases is back.

(I saw this from some of the blogs I follow and have some time in my hands, so I gave it a try.)

What I’m writing: And when I say I’m distracted, it means I’ve been watching, reading, listening, working on a lot of things. One of the things eating up my time is making my itineraries for my upcoming trips. I don’t want to share it for now, but I will, though, soon. Basically, I’m just getting OC’d by everything — from budget to the stuff I need (ehem, want) to bring to the accommodations and to the exact time I want to be in where. It’s eating me up, and next time I know it’s time to sleep or go to work. I just hope all my obsession in reading up on all these places results to a good trip or even an enthusiasm to keep up with my blog, hehe. (Relentless plug though: go read my Cambodia series.)

(Also brb’d too many times because I’m keeping up with exchanging tabs and work and tweets and oh who’s that boy over Tumblr, gah. Distracted.)

What I’m drinking (right now): A large cup of Iced Americano from Seattle’s Best and a cup of Coke Zero. Yeah, caffeine.

What I’m watching:


As if I am not distracted enough, I am now in the mission to backtrack the X-men legacy through past media aka film, comic books, and wikia (because internet is awesome) because Days of Future Past had delineated and distorted every bit of what I know of the X-men timeline. I am not particularly the comic book geek but I have loved X-men since Jubilee was the gayest mutant and every bit of gayness in my body longed to be Storm in the animation series circa 90’s. Also, Wolverine’s butt (bless you Huge Jackman), Fassbender and his excellent delivery of Magneto, McAvoy as a disheveled hipster Charles X. Xavier, AND WHO WOULD’VE THOUGHT Evan Peters is the best actor to portray Quicksilver — with his excellent, excellent psychoweirdo style of acting (Hello, American Horror Story Season 4) Told ya, I am one distracted overly gay person. And I want to buy that omnibus.

What I’m reading:

tumblr_my7qsp0u271qzdd47o1_500

I’m about to finish Haruki Murakami’s Dance Dance Dance after my bout with distraction to finish reading a novel. Again, I’m sorely distracted. I usually stop reading Murakami novels in the middle then binge on it after I recover from a whirlwind of emotions. Murakami never fails to put me in an emotional centrifuge spinning intermittently between fast and faster. With Dance, Dance, Dance; I stopped after the nameless narrator (most of his narrators are nameless idky) met Sheep Man because I can’t wrap my head fully on how he played with parallel universes and how there is a clairvoyant and everything is connected and IamtalkinglikeSheepManalready. (That’s my best shot at not spoiling anyone who would want to read it.) Then I decided to binge on it again, and I think I need another break before I start on another Murakami binge. I know my reading pattern is unconventional but it’s how I cope with my distracted self.

What I’m eating: Now? None. Because it’s no-cal Saturdays. No, don’t listen to me. Go eat! I’m not healthy. Kthanksbye.

What I’m thinking:


New York, now and then will always pique my interest. Be it the 50’s Beatniks or the 80’s gay revolution, idc it’s New York. I had an epiphany last night while I was working and reading this New York Times article and realized that New York, no matter how dark, decadent, and degenerated (to some, not to me) it is, has so much story to tell. Every nook and cranny of Gotham has some odd legend or generation and oddly enough as well I love hearing their stories. One of these stories is The Normal Heart, Ryan Murphy’s much-awaited telling of the gay revolution in New York right after the spike of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Aside from being a valuable addition to my ever-growing HIV/AIDS media collection, it is also an interesting tale of people who lived beautifully amidst a tumultuous decade. Read the New York Times article above before watching and be drawn to stories of people who fought the fight – and how they fought and how they are fighting until now.

(By now, I have acknowledged that this might have thrown you in a whirlwind of thoughts about me. I can also feel you say I’m weird.)

Basically, what I wanna say:

I don’t quite know how to end this post. I just want to document what’s going on with me and to touch base with you. Also, to share what I’ve been binging on, and eventually realize that I am so distracted and I’m blathering most of the time. (Why, Jonver. Y.)

kthanksbaiiiiiiii~

P.S. I’m thinking of a way to concretize my thoughts more because I just can’t go on distracted all my life. Halp! (Especially with my parenthetical tendencies.)

ALL I WANT IS SOME COCK FOR MYSELF

Dirty, eh?

But what I am talking about is the theatrical play from London! COCK is a hit in London before it came to Broadway and finally here in Manila! It’s a story of a gay guy falling in love with a woman. Simple plot with four characters – with a lot of conflict.

How many of these occur really? How fluid is a person’s gender? And to what extent will you tolerate if your lover both has a man and a woman in his life? Is it just about sex? Are humans all about carnal desires? Or we’re just flexible like that?

Add this to my wishlist, I want to see this!

Apple CEO accepts Lifetime Achievement Award from alma mater, discusses discrimination and basic human rights

I’ve been a longtime fan of Apple. I’ve been a longtime supporter of equality as well (like duh, who wouldn’t?) and this – no matter how many other significant people in the world came out is one of the nicest things I heard.

This video of Tim Cook’s speech advocating equality – from race, gender, to migrants – is as refreshing as it can get. Being the head of one of the world’s leading tech companies, he has been a figure himself. What with following the steps of technological evangelic Steve Jobs, who may be playing board games with God right now. To make a bold move is not easy if you are representing a bigger entity than yourself, what more if it’s a company which the world tracks every second, every nanosecond of existence.

It’s actually even more refreshing to know that even before the age of gay marriage laws, Apple has been providing support to their employees and has been embracing diversity. I think this solidifies their visage as a premier brand – because they transcend differences and are not afraid to express it for the world to see.

I think embracing diversity influences their approach in everything. Design, branding, engineering, everything! It is because they know that not one size fits all that they do their best to come up with a realm of technology that captures the heart of the market. It all makes sense that they are coming out. It is high time to do so, and they are not one to fall behind this opportunity.

Of course, we are in the dark of what really happens inside Apple, unless you, my beloved reader, are working for/with them. But as far as what I heard from Tim Cook and What my feelings tell me – that there is a high degree of sincerity from his words – then I am a happy supporter of Apple.

I think I just escalated from being an Apple fanboy to an Apple groupie.

Tom Daley, oh Tom Daley

So the first news that I heard, rather seen on Facebook, is something close to my heart. A move this big from a sports celebrity is something commendable – bold, brave, and well yeah – controversial. I was really shocked, and I wanna hug him (not because he’s hot) and make him feel he is loved in every corner of the world because of what he just did. (Okay maybe yes also because he’s hot! I am weak!) But he really deserves a hug — look at that awkwardness and vulnerability that he is under while coming out. This is an evidence that around the world a lot of people are experiencing this kind of discomfort and not all of them are brave.

What matters is you’re happy. If you’re straight now, and you feel like you like a guy – feel free. If you’re gay then maybe you feel like going back to being straight – feel free. I agree with my homie (oh Josh Hutcherson, oh you) when he said in an interview with Out Magazine that if you considered yourself 100% anything, that’d be narrow-minded. And stupid imho.


Photo from Out Magazine

And to that, I also give Joshie a virtual hug. You’re the best, man. From advocating gay rights, and now to being actually open to it.

And maybe this picture will be in your Christmas Gift Ideas… well for yourself, haha!

I can’t believe I lived a life before Tyler Oakley

Another fanboy post. You’ve been warned.


So I found this while I was googling all things One Direction (god bless their very what-makes-them-beautiful souls) because I just can’t stop fanboying every single day after I came out as a Directioner. Tyler, baby, if you’re reading this, I am so sorry I used to be not proud I am Directioner. USED TO!

AND THEN I FOUND THIS. Oh my fucking god, is he HOT!

39ab1c962b3511e3927e22000a9e08e3_8

So apparently, Tyler Oakley has lived in Youtube for 6 years already, and WHY DID I NOT NOTICE HIM EARLY? I know of his mate, Davey Wavey like ages ago, and I blogged about some of his beautiful projects – and then what, I didn’t get to find Tyler? WHAT A SAD SAD LIFE I HAVE LIVED.

He’s been living a dream, and he’s addicting. He’s the newest addition to my ever-growing list of obsessions. God knows, I’m willing to linger in this one. I don’t care if he’s gayer than me, or gayer than more than 50% of America. I DON’T CARE, I LOVE IT! Cue: Icona Pop please.

a9e9a8e21af011e3bb5822000a9e060e_7

He can make babies with Niall. ENOUGH REASON, DUH. Only if I can make babies with my ex too who looks like Louis. End of discussion.

And he’s just the cutest handsomest (!) gayest gay boy I am currently having a crush on. LIKE C’MON WHO WOULDN’T? Aside from he’s living a life I really envy, he’s smart, witty, and OH GOD HE USED TO WORK IN SOCIAL MEDIA. Pretty much like me, imho. I mean, whoever he is dating now, I have only the purest envy for you, girl. Have I said, he’s really hot in his own way? Fabulously hot. There.

Sorry but whenever people has to ship him with other Youtubers, I cannot. I ship him with me, okay?

4a1f9d2010b611e3aaaf22000aa802e0_7

So Tyler, if you’re reading this, I am guessing you already received the postcard I sent you. I am wishing for the heavens and the earth to move so I can see you face to face. It’s better than seeing (all of) One Direction like face to face. Or maybe just of equal value. I don’t wanna be be-careful-what-you-wish-for-cause-you-might-just-get-it’d.

4fc37a642efa11e38df322000a9e48a8_8

By any chance, do you love him like I do? I LOVE HIM MORE, OKAY?

Practice what you preach, bitch.

There are a lot of hate in the world and I hope that Christians — who preach Christ’s good will, will not ruin all the beautiful things about Him. I am a believer, but as Gandhi said, I don’t like some of His followers.

Now the video above is a good example how to be a bad preacher. And here’s what you get when you spread hate — people show you love, and you end up with no one listening to you.

So NOH8 guys!

“She was spreading so much hate. And we wanted to show her love, show her that we disagree, show her that we weren’t going to argue with her. We wanted to say, ‘There are gay people here, and we are not okay with what you’re saying.'”
