happy birthday / vlogging

So I decided to give video blogging a shot. No one tells you how difficult it is to find the right scene, the right words, even the proper lighting. And no one ever says how ang lakas pala niya makapangit. :X At the end of everything, I just said fuck it. Let’s do this. I have very poor EQ.


For those who can't see the video, I was just talking about my birthday, being sick but still being blessed. I thanked everybody who's been on this crazy blogging journey with me and I made several excuses why I haven't posted the next part of my story yet. lolz

Before I forget, I also wanted to say Happy Birthday to other bloggers: Momel, who is crazy but that’s why we love him, Green Breaker, who is new and therefore fresh, and to Herbs, the Coffee Babies’ very own bebigurl.

UPDATE: TwitVid's being weird and YouTube finally cooperated so here's another link to access the video. Also, the post I was talking about can be seen here.

  1. is he at the Pen? no, backdrop is just designed to look like that!

    HH the Dalai Lama says that getting sick means the body is overwhelmed with blessings and can't hold it all in

    happy birthday again, cb

  2. @LOF: Yes, my mother's gay curtains make a surprise cameo. haha I did my first take on a white background but I looked so dark so I decided to move here. haha

    That Dalai Lama sure knows his stuff. It took me a while to get why I'm feeling sick but the fifty million FB notifications put everything in perspective. Thanks for being such a good friend. *hugs*

  14. Salamat salamat, Ichan, Drama Kind, Seab, JJ, Desole Boy and Will.

    @Isabelle: Yes, I am very charming when I'm sick. lol I was playing the video back and I realized I looked like a panda because of my eyebags. Perhaps that added to it? lol Thank you very much. :)

    @Peter: That sounds lovely, if not for the analgesics that i took which I heard, will prove lethal to my internal organs. lol Maybe when I'm better?

    @Pepe: Tried uploading it to Youtube again but it still won't work. I'm guessing twitvid isn't as popular as twitpic.

    @Rei: Awww.. you're the first person to do that to me. Thank you, Rei. I hope we all grow old doing this. :)

  46. did i mention that i've decided that if they did a TV sitcom on your life in this decade, it should star Josh Radnor as you and be called "How I Met your Father"? YJ= Neil Patrick Harris.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @LOF: What an interesting theory, LOF. I have this theory. Whenever my friends try to imagine ourselves as TV show characters, I always end up being the lead. My theory is the lead is always an empty vessel. He essentially has no personality traits so the audience has to fill him in with their own. Maybe that's why Josh Radnor should star. lol

    Plus with the original Coffee Babies line up, I was Carrie. haha

  48. You've got that strong Leo energy, of course. Now, what is personal? "We think we are conscious but that is not true; we are conscious in the realm of the collective and we do not even know how little our individual consciousness is. It needs quite a search to find even fragments of consciousness that are personal." -Marie Louise von Franz

    I can assure you that your lack of individuality is not unique. lol. it is a curse for us all.

    ReplyDelete
  49. @LOF: A curse? What a strong word to use! lol I'm not exactly sure why or how it works but it seems like an awful lot of power for someone as vain as me to have. lol

    ReplyDelete
  50. hahaha. a curse that can also be a blessing. as for your power, let's put it this way. if you abuse the magic, the wax will melt, your wings will become unfastened and you will fall to your death. so no pressure Mr. Leo.

  51. its funny how visual cues can camouflage audio truths...
