Back from Bangkok!

Just returned from an epic Bangkok trip with my best buddies, Cha and Nix! 4N3D of beer, food, and shopping, woot! I really really love Bangkok! I might visit again next year (it will be my 3rd time, then) because I want to eat more street food and shop at Pratunam Center!
my best friends: cha & nix

Will soon upload photos and reviews of different places we've visited during our stay. Need to catch up with school requirements first, meh. <3

The Tuesday Vargas Wedding Video That Will Make You Curl Up and Cry

While surfing my Facebook post feed, I saw this very heart-warming wedding video of Filipina commediene Tuesday Vargas. I remember working with her before when I was a production intern for ABSCBN's soap "Bituing Walang Ningning." She's a nice person but she also looks snobby at times. Hehe.

Anyway, her wedding was held at Discovery Shores Boracay. She looked so beautiful in her white dress!!!<3

Here are some of the wedding photos (source):

So now it's confirmed that Charice Pempengo IS joining Glee, Filipinos all over the world (i guess) are rejoicing this feat. But she's not the only Pinay who will be on the show's second chapter!

Meet Hazel Faith Dela Cruz, the winner of Jack TV's Glee Send Off contest. <3

The Glee Cast even announced her win! Check out this funny video!

Per her brother, she doesn't know yet which episode she will appear. I really don't mind if she'll get a speaking role or not because, hey, Jollibee didn't even do anything during THAT episode and we were all gaga about it all over the interwebz, newspapers, and TV.

I'm looking forward to seeing these two talented ladies on Glee!

Open Letter To The Person Who Left A Comment on DJ Mo Twister's Website

Dear You,

You left a very uncouth comment on DJ Mo Twister's website using my name.

I mean, seriously? You asked the interwebs for advice regarding my vajay-jay? WITH A WRONG GRAMMAR?

Not cool.

I'll have Grammar Nazi hunt you down and punch your kidney.


I know you did this and I could post your photo here for everyone's reference. But that would be a waste precious internet space. So, no.

This is Georgina Wilson. She is not a waste of precious internet space.

Hate me, miss? SEND ME AN EMAIL at dani(dot)salasalan(at)gmail(dot)com. It's the _appropriate_ thing to do.

Fuck you. Thank you.

The Things Your Boyfriend Told You  Are All Lies. *awwwww*


No Drama in Cervical Cancer

It was a themed event. 50s, to be exact. After an hour of looking for a suitable outfit, I gave up and decided to just go with jeans, a simple floral top, cardigan, and a 4-inch black heels that could poke a hole in your skull. Come 7pm, I arrived at Melo's fresh and "baskil" free, thanks to my mother who lovingly dropped me off the site. <3


Minutes later, I found myself seated with Flow, Ohmski, Sire, and Bernie. A server approached immediately and politely asked how I prefer my steak served. "Well done," I answered, as my eyes search the room for familiar faces. A white projector screen waited infront. Old music hummed in the background. Pleasantries were exchanged between tables while plates of starters were being served. It was a typical press conference setting. Or so we thought.

I almost spilled soup on my shirt when a bellowing voice came from one of the tables. A man, who was at about his 20s, welcomed us to the birthday party of his wife Jennifer. How he delivered his speech was a dead give away--he is a thespian. I knew then that this won't be an ordinary event so I braised myself (and my bowl of soup) for the impending show.

With the steaks served, the party officially begun. Guests anticipated the celebrant's arrival until a shocking truth was revealed--Jennifer died, everyone is a suspect. In mere seconds, Melo's was turned into a stage. The interesting set-up made the bloggers curious and entertained at the same time. As the night progressed, more characters were revealed: a devious mother-in-law, the envious sister, the sneaky ex-lover, a discreet best friend--all being probed for Jennifer's untimely death. A single question lingered in everyone's mind: "Who Killed Jennifer?"

After dialogues and punchlines were thrown from either corners of the room, the question was finally answered. Jennifer was a victim of a serial killer--the cervical cancer.

The Clock is Ticking

World Health Organization (WHO) says that there are 510,000 new cervical cases annually worldwide, making it the second biggest cause of female mortality, next to breast cancer. Locally, there are 7,277 estimated new cervical cancer cases per year, with 12 women dying daily from the disease. These are just some information shared to us by a GlaxoSmithKlein Philippines' resource speaker during the event.

What Causes Cervical Cancer?

Cervical Cancer is usually caused by a chronic and persistent cancer-causing type of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. Presently, there are 200 known types of HPVs, 15 of of which are said to be cancer-causing. Prevalent among Filipinas are HPVs 16, 18, and 45.


Pre-malignant lesions in the cervix may be detected and diagnosed before becoming malignant. Visual Inspection of the cervix with Acetic Acid (VIA) and Pap Smear would help identify these lesions. Yearly Pap Smear tests are recommended for women who have already engaged in vaginal intercourse. Non-sexually active individuals, on the other hand, may start Pap Smear tests at the age of 35.

Stop the Killing

As the saying goes, prevention is always better than cure. Cervical Cancer Vaccines are now available to prevent women from falling victim to this serial killer. In the Philippines, women ages 10 and above may now avail of a cervical cancer vaccine at around Php8,000. Three shots within a period of six months are all it takes to guard yourself from cervical cancer causing HPVs. Consult with your OB-Gyn for more information about this vaccine or visit http://www.gsk.com.ph/cervarix.html.

Mortal Kombat Rebirth HD Video

I've been playing Mortal Kombat as a kid (DOS!!!) so this new Mortal Kombat Rebirth trailer/short film/whatever that's been going around in the interwebs is just plain WOW. It's sick but it's really really wow. If this turns out to be a full-length movie, I'll definitely watch it. <3

Here's the video for those who hasn't seen it yet. 8-min HD of awesomeness, coming up!

Batangas Failure

Another epic fail from my friends.


We were supposed to have a June 12-14 out of town trip. First, Zambales. Then, Batangas. After several days of sending emails and sms to several resorts, our group ended up postponing the trip because of several reasons

My Friends, What a Lol

I don't want to put the weekend to waste so I searched Agoda for cheap hotel rates and found BSA Suites in Palanca St. Makati. It has a kitchen and a rooftop pool, which were all we need for a drunk weekend. I hope there won't be any drama, I just want to get wasted this week. That is all.

Pivo Restobar Home Depot

I had my first taste of alcohol at the age of 4. My mother, who was then having drinks with her friends inside our house, made me sip from her glass of beer in lieu of milk.

It's what mothers do.

Thanks ma, I love you.


Beer. The Liquid Bread. Most people hate it because of its bitter taste. Fortunately, my friends and I are huge fans of this drink. A couple or so bottles paired with greasy munchies are things we look forward to after a long day at work. We're dudes with boobz, yo. For beer lovers like us, Pivo Restobar is HEAVEN. The place prides itself with 120+ premium beer brands from countries such as Belgium, Germany, Mexico, USA, England, France, and Spain, among others. Hard-core San Miguel fans need not worry as the place still offer local brews. But it won't hurt to try some foreign ones from time to time, right?

Nestled along the busy area of Home Depot Complex along Julia Vargas Pasig, Pivo is frequented by yuppies either celebrating a birthday/engagement/etc or chilling down after office hours. Entering the venue, you'll see al fresco dining tables which could seat 25 people and an elevated VIP area that could accommodate 20 guests. At night, the place is lit by a soft yellow light from several makeshift lamp posts in the room corners. A lone LCD television, placed at the center wall of the bar area, is almost always tuned in a cable sports channel. Crossover music and upbeat lounge plays in the background, allowing guests to engage in conversations over a cold bottle of beer.

I want those lamps in my room

I want this poster in my room

I want these in my room, also.

I like that beer menu of Pivo includes the country of origin and alcohol contents. I find it very informative and helpful for the customers, especially those who are very particular about their drinks. If you have questions about the menu, you could simply ask your server and he will provide you the information you need. Best-sellers include Hoegaarden, Grolsch, Chimay, Flying Dog, Rogue, and Ballast Point.

 L-R: Flying Dog in Heat Wheat Beer (Php175), Leffe Blonde (Php145), Chimay Blue (Php195)

L-R: Strongbow Cider (Php180), Maredsous Blonde (Php178), Pink Killer (Php145)

If you're used to having beers at P35-50 a bottle, a Php140 bottle could seem a tad overpriced. This is why I shy away from Pivo's pale ales as some of them would only taste similar to San Miguel Pale Pilsen / Premium. It's better to put my money on strong dark ales that will definitely give a kick! Case in point: Chimay Blue and Maredsous Blonde.


How to Get your Blog Approved in Payu2blog

After seeing a number of people in my plurk timeline discussing about the opps and payouts that Payu2blog regularly sends their bloggers, I decided to give it a try. It's been several months since I first applied for blogger membership at Payu2blog. I think my first submission was December last year but I didn't get in. It turns out that Payu2blog has the following requirements for blog approval
  • A wordpress customized blog. Meaning, a wordpress with a .com domain. You can't submit a http://www.yournamehere.wordpress.com/. It should be http://www.yourname.com/. I think they prefer wordpress over Blogger, LiveJournal, etc. because users cannot edit the html settings and input ad codes
  • Your blog should be at least 3 months old, with a minimum of 30 posts
  • Your blog must be in English
  • Your blog must not have any other form of advertisements, i.e. Nuffnang, Adsense, Entrecard, Infolinks, etc.
With this, I created a .com site and after several months, submitted the url to Payu's site. I was surprised one day when I received an email from someone named MARGIE, saying that my blog has been approved! Yey! She asked me to send my contact details and paypal account email. I was supposed to wait for 5 days for them to send me my user login and password but none came. I thought my blog has been rejected in the final review so I decided to let it go. A month later, I suddenly thought of resending my details to Margie and remind her of my pending user account. She then replied immediately and apologized for the delay. After having my account running and active for a day, I already got a couple of opps and several more the next day! I was so thrilled because the assignments were rather easy and doesn't demand lengthy submission! Freeform assignments are usually priced at $5, but I heard there are occassional $12 or $50 opps. I also find it really nice that there's no minimum amount needed in order to receive payment/cashout.

A couple of weeks later, I finally received my late payout! Indeed, Payu2blog is real! I consider it a great site to earn money online. Thanks Sheriff! :)
