Meeting The Olympian Michael Martinez For The First Time

August 31, 2017

For those who doesn't know Michael Martinez is, well, he's the first and only Philippine representative in Figure Skating in 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. And the fourth year of the Philippines to join the Winter Olympics.

Just recently, August 27, he bagged silver medal in the recently concluded SEA Games 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I've been following him on Instagram @martinezfrost3 since last year and he became active on vlogging (YouTube). In his homecoming from SEA Games, he announced in Instagram to give 50 pcs of shirts to his followers from his own merchandise called Michael Martinez Apparel (@michaelmartinezapparel), to be available soon online. Luckily I got picked.

Unfortunately there are only 2 sizes, small and medium only. My size is large but it's okay though because I get to meet him in person, that would be enough already and maybe give the shirt to my family/friends.
But by the time I got the shirt, it so soft, it's like begging me to wear it. Oh come on, I tried to fit anyways and I think it looks good on me (hahaha just me looking at the mirror, sorry but I really love the fabric, so comfy), I just need not to breathe for seconds, LOL, kidding. So, for now, this is mine. Yay!

Thanks Michael for being so kind and accommodating to us and of course, thanks for the shirt. I love it! Good luck for your 2018 Olympic qualifying and of course, the Olympic itself. Go for the gold.

Oh, if your interested to get one, just follow @michaelmartinezapparel Instagram for updates.

If I Die Today, I Wish.. I Want..

August 29, 2017

I just noticed that mostly of my friends in facebook posted about the death of their relatives. I can't help it but realized that life indeed short. We can never tell when is your last day here on earth unless the doctor said so or you take your own life.

Because of this, I've observe some beliefs or tradition or even new practices that I don't like. So I wanna list down my wishes and wants when I die.

I wish..
I wish to die in natural death. Because I wanna be buried or cremated. I don't want to imagine to die in an accident were my body got deformed or worst separated. I also don't want to imagine to die in a disaster like typhoon, earthquake or any mass death and my body went missing or can't be identified. Cross fingers.

I want..
I want, during wake or funeral, all the people that will be going will ONLY wear WHITE or RED. Wear red if you think I should be happy already where I'm going. But if you think I don't deserve to be happy, then wear white. But PLEASE, please don't wear BLACK. If you're wearing black, then PLEASE don't go because if you do, I'm going to hunt you (if I can do that, I really will). Because black for me is very lonely color. And if it is in my funeral it feels like you're sending me to darkness. I don't wanna be lonely, I just wanna be happy. Maybe you can print this so that other people will not ask questions why I wanna see red and I don't wanna see black.

Don't get me wrong, I wear black in casual/daily basis. Sometimes in happy cases like birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Pictures really disturbs me every time I went to any wake or funeral specially in the tarp. Heller, concert? Where to buy tickets? LOL!

Well, if these are really necessary for you, then maybe don't put my close up picture were people could only see the holes in my face. OMG, that's gross. I'll put and update the pictures that I like here from time to time for you to use.

OPPO F1s: Holiday Getaway

My favorite Holiday getaway destinations would be, actually I have three in mind, Boracay, Baguio and Singapore.

First, Boracay. Simply because it is truly a paradise. Just walking in the super fine sand especially during sunrise or sunset is just awesome. No words can explain. No matter how populated it is nowadays but still, its true beauty which is the sand, the scenic views, the islets are still there. That's the reason why I'm still looking forward of going back there. I've been there only twice, in 2012 and  in 2014 but still, thinking of going back there excites me.

Second, Baguio. Oh come-on, who doesn't want the cold weather of Baguio specially if you're very much exposed to the daily heat in Metro Manila, Baguio is the best getaway all the time. Not just because it is a one bus-ride away, you can simply go there during weekends just to escape the polluted air in Metro Manila. Perfect for cuddle if you have special someone to bring but if there's none, still being there is just perfect already. Oh, I've been to Baguio 4 times already. November 2010, September 2012, January 2013, March 2014 plus some sidetrips from Vigan in February 2011 and from Bataan in March 2011.

Third, Singapore. I know I've been to Singapore only once and this has been my first ever out-of-the-country-trip but there are lot of places there that I haven't explore yet. And besides, I knew some people who's working there. To be outside the country, you only wish to first visit the country which you can explore and of course to meet some friends and a little get together.

Now that OPPO F1s selfie expert is here, you wouldn't worry that you can't capture your best moments. This is the best Holiday Getaway gadget you'll ever acquired because this would be the most used gadget in hand. OPPO F1s best ever feature is the 16MP Front Camera that you could not ask for more. Its uses a front beauty with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture. This allows for more light to enter the camera and enhance its sensitivity so you can take natural-looking selfies even in low-light conditions. Because of these, you better not forget to bring powerbanks with you to support the battery in case of battery empty.

First Reunion with Star Dharma Peeps

November 11, 2016
Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City

Our last bonding together was our Boracay Trip in May 2014. In a very short period of time, these people made me comfortable to be with them. It's just like we've been friends for a long time that's why when someone (either me or them) invited for a reunion, I was so happy simply because I missed them. Bringing back memories and just spending the night with them was just awesome.

We had dinner at Dencio's, even though I don't really like the place because of the very poor service, because it's so hard to call the waiters to serve you, their foods were delicious. Ordered couple of beers then proceed to Starbucks.

My First Ever (hopefully not last) Outside of the Country Trip [Singapore 2016]

September 8-11, 2016

Yes, hopefully this will not be my last outside of the country trip. But of course this would not be possible if I just rely on my pocket. I just like to thank my sponsor whom cannot be named. LOL!

Travelling alone is quite boring. So if you got someone to drag, even just a friend is very much OK, most specially if it is your lover, wow, that would be awesome. Yeah? Unfortunately, this trip was my alone-time trip. So as expected, boring.

I knew few people working in SG but unfortunately, they're too busy to meet me. Good thing, at least the 2 of them agreed to meet me at their working areas. It was very nice to meet them even just in a very few minutes.

Oh, before anything else, as a first timer to go to another country, I asked everyone I knew who went abroad already (if not all, then at least most of them) about what to do, what are the requirements and everything else. Each one of them had different advises that isn't necessary but it's OK to be prepared always. After all, you want is not to be bothered in the airport by the immigration officer.

These are the sample of them which I did but all of them were not asked but the immigration officer:
1. Bank Statement.
2. Billing Statement.
3. Confirmation of Hotel Bookings, but in my case a letter from the person of where I stay with contact number and complete address.

I was told that I was just lucky because I was not asked too many documents simply because I'm a Filipino because of the impression of not going back and find a job there without proper documents. But at least, I did my homework.

Anyways, the only exciting part of being alone in SG was in Universal Studios Singapore (USS) because there were special line for single and can ride faster than those who came in group. That's the only consolation which I enjoyed so much. It was just so unfortunate of me that I was not able to ride the Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN/CYLON because the weather did not cooperate. The rain falls when I started falling in line. Grrrr.. If I got another chance to vist USS, this would be my first ride.
