GMA7 Unang Hirit TV Guesting

Hi, guys! Sharing with you what happened at my first-ever guesting on Unang Hirit!


Unang Hirit is the longest running morning show in the Philippines that airs every weekday morning on GMA Network from 5:00 AM to 8:00 AM.

How did I get on the show? I was contacted by one of their segment producers a few months ago to do a quick demo on cute hairstyles. But that didn't push-through because of some circumstances. Luckily, they contacted me again for another segment! Yay!

Which GMA artist did I see there? Watch my short Vlog below!



Unang Hirit airs early in the morning. The staff told me the call time is at 5 AM and that she would send one of their services to pick me up at home around 4:30 AM. Knowing how slow-paced I am when it comes to doing my makeup, I skipped the "sleep" part and went on to taking a bath at 1AM and doing my makeup at 2! True enough, the GMA service was right at my doorstep at 4:30 in the morning.


Unlike the busy dressing rooms that I witnessed when I had other TV guestings, this one was rather calm and quiet. You ask why? Because I was alone in the room, at 5 AM nonetheless.  I was given the 2-page script. Afterwards, I proceeded to finishing my makeup. Yes, I started doing it 2 yet unfinished at 5!


GMA, Kapuso!


By the way, I wore my VP Ombre Hair Extensions that day to give my hair some oomph. 

Unang Hirit happens at STUDIO 3 of GMA. It's a small studio that almost has no space for audience. I don't know if they would need it, though, since they air first thing in the morning. 


Rule #1 : Take a photo inside a TV Studio when they guest you. 
Rule #2 : Never ask a tall cameraman to take the photo for you.


I look so short in the picture!! Hehe Anyway, that's what I wore that day. A simple and comfortable ensemble. 

I demonstrated toys that are perfect for Christmas. Unang Hirit labeled me as a Lifestyle Blogger and a Fashion Expert. Since I am a "shopping expert", I was there to show some of my amazing toy finds that are perfect as gifts for kids this Christmas.


One of the things you have to know about show business is that you have to arrive on time and then wait until it's your time to shine. In showbiz, this is called being professional. :)

I had to wait for a few hours until it was my turn. Good thing, a very pleasant surprise arrived! My boyfriend came at around 6AM to support me! :) (I told you, he's good!)


A few more pleasant surprises! I found out that 2 of my college classmates now work at GMA News! Meet my fellow Tamaraws, Unique and Mark. :)


They both toured me around the news area. I got the chance to visit the set and sit on the chair of GMA NEWS TV! I remember when I was in college and we'd have reporting activities. I remember how nervous and unconfident I was. First reason, my English was bad. Second, I knew my classmates would make fun of me while watching in the classroom. Hehe

College to me is 10 years ago! Wow, time flies! Crazy how I think of it as if it was just 2-3 years ago!


I hope you enjoyed the vlog and thig blog post. Unang Hirit guested me again for another segment. I shall be working on that vlog soon! 

Thank you for reading today!

Why I don't show my Boyfriend on the Internet!


I have been single for 7 years before I met my Boyfriend. There were different stages of my singlehood. The first stage was the feeling of freedom. It was the time when I felt I had all the time in my hands, I could do what I want when I wanted. The next stage was wanting to belong. It was the phase when I really wanted to be with someone. I had crush on some men who, luckily, didn't like me back. The next stage was depression. It was the point where I felt really sad that I couldn't find a man that would sweep me off my feet. I got to the point where I almost believed I'd be single forever. And then, the final stage - praying. On the 7th year of my single life, I started attending a Christian church that was introduced to me by a friend. That was the point where I sincerely prayed to God for the right man to come into my life. When I started praying, that was when I realized that all along, for 7 years, I was enjoying, searching and waiting but I was not praying! True enough, I witnessed how faithful God is to his promises. After just a few months of attending the said church and praying for the right man, I met HIM. The guy that swept me off my feet. 

So, why do I not show him in my videos and in the pictures I post? SIMPLE. Because I believe he is a treasure, a gift I received from God. And what do you do with something that is THAT valuable? You protect it. You do not show it off for it to be robbed or be damaged. Rather, you store it and put it where it is least susceptible to harm. That is how I am protecting my Boyfriend from the internet. 



You see those comments? I haven't even shown him yet he's getting all this hate from people that haven't met him or seen him in person. My BOYFRIEND does not deserve such words, insult and hate. He is a fine man, I am telling you. Everytime I look at him, I can't help but thank God that he let me meet this amazing man.

Sure, I do have a lot of loving, kind and supportive followers. But then again, this is the internet. There are random viewers, and most definitely, haters and bashers. When these random viewers see any of my videos, they are not able to follow the story. They do not know how much I prayed for this man or how long I waited. Or how long he waited back for me. I waited 7 years for him. He waited 6 years for me. All those years, we were both single. Not dating nor attached with anyone. We were single, both trying to find ourselves, improve ourselves so in the end, we could find one another. I consider our love story so unique and so special. 

When these random people on the internet see him, all they would notice are the shallow things shallow people notice. Because they are not my followers and they do not know my story, they would never know these:

1.) He is a Christian.
3.) He loves his Family.
3.) He is Responsible and Hard-working.
4.) He is Patient and Kind.
5.) He is Sweet and Caring.
6.) He is Loyal and Loving.
7.) He is Polite to Elders and Kind to animals.
8.) He does not smoke cigarette or drink alcohol.
9.) He is Smart and has lots of skills.
10.) He Respects me and is Proud of me.
11.) He Makes me Happy.
12.) He LOVES me.

Admit it, these are traits that are too good to be true. But trust me, my Boyfriend got all these. I want to value our relationship, I want it to be sacred and far from from the scrutinizing eyes of random viewers. 



I have been on the internet for 5 years and I know how painful some comments could get. I want to protect my Boyfriend from getting mean comments. I want to save him from heartache of reading comments from people he doesn't know and people who don't know him. Just because I am on the internet doesn't mean people around me want to be exposed, too. Some people enjoy attention while some enjoy quietness and privacy. My Boyfriend is the latter type of person. 

But that doesn't mean I am ashamed of him or that I am not proud of him. I couldn't be more grateful that God allowed us to meet one another. And I couldn't be more proud of him. I am so proud of all the things he does, things he can do and the things that he is learning to do. He doesn't limit himself and doesn't stop learning. He is a man of sense but most definitely has sense of humor. He makes me happy and most importantly, he makes me feel loved.




Now tell me, if you got something this great, would you ever allow the internet to damage something amazing just for a few minutes of internet fame (for him) and entertainment (for them)? I don't think you would. That's why I am not. 

And this is the reason why I do not show him in my posts. I want him to be able to go around and about without people disturbing him. I don't want him to go home from a really good day and go on his phone to check some comments on my Youtube videos just to see some really nasty ones. I want him to have peace and tranquility. I want to respect him the same way he is respecting me. 



"Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else."

For 7 years, I kept on wondering why I couldn't find a man. Now, everything makes sense. God made me wait, God made us both wait, so all the roads we travel would take us to one another. For this, I will never, ever let any mean YouTube comment or nasty social network opinion destroy this magic that we found. 




I thank my loyal followers for all the love and support! I saw how happy you were all for me when I announced that I finally have a Boyfriend. I also saw the sincere understanding when I told you I don't want to show his face in any of my posts. You give us so much love! I hope you stay with us as we go about our journey!


Thank you so much! Stay happy and in love, everyone!

Gifts I got from the YouTube Meet and Greet!

The YouTube Lounge Meet and Greet will forever be one of my memorable and happiest days. It was my first-ever official Meet and Greet with my followers, viewers and online friends. Despite it being so special to me, I honestly wasn't expecting that a lot of people would actually come to meet me. I was preparing for at least 20 people but I also would have been happy with just 10. But, not 10 nor 20 people came! There were a lot of girls who came that day! Girls that didn't bother waking up early, traveling hours, going to the venue early, waiting in line and getting hungry. Aside from the sweet kisses and tight hugs, and selfies, of course, some of them actually went the extra mile to give me some gifts! How sweet are these girls, really?


So, this is how it feels to have followers that go that extra mile to prepare something and hand it to you personally. I've only seen such acts on K-pop fan accounts and websites! Never in my wildest dreams have I imagined that someday, people would actually wait in line to see me and even prepare some gifts just for me! 

There are the gifts that I received from some of my sweet followers! There are sweet letters that were carefully hand-written, gifts wrapped in pretty paper bags, cute stuff like phone charm, bracelet, necklace, usable items such as hand-painted glass, lip balm and notebook. And of course, a really cute and huggable plushie, a bouquet of flowers and some delicious food!!!


Watch the HAUL video to see me unbox these gifts I received from my Fluffies!



I loved every single item! I honestly do not have a single favorite because I loved and appreciated every single one. I also enjoyed reading the letters so much! Huhu 

Did you guys know that I keep letters? Even the silly notes that my classmates and I wrote back in elementary and high-school are still kept in a little memory box in our house. For me, letters are as good and as sentimental as photos. If pictures paint a thousand words, for me, letters say a thousand more words that the picture failed to show. That is why I just love receiving letters!


Let me take this opportunity to thank these sweet and lovely girls for giving me gifts. Though it really wouldn't matter much if you came empty handed, I still love you all so dearly! But I am just over-whelmed that you actually thought of spending few bucks and allotting few moments of your life just for these items for me. I really appreciate them! Thank you so much Jeruz, Anne, Shane, Spongeydee, Michelle, and Angel!!


Also a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that came to the YouTube Lounge Meet and Greet. This would have been our Family Picture but it is not complete since the other girls had to leave before we were able to take pictures. But know that I am truly thankful that you came to meet me. I wish I could list down all your names. But if you are reading this right now and you went to the Meet and Greet, please know that I am really, really beaming with happiness that I have finally met YOU! Thanks also to the girls that have met me before but still went to the Meet and Greet, waited in line just for a few minutes of chit-chat  and selfies!



I just wish we had more time and and a more intimate place to talk and bond. I am grateful for the love and support and I pray that you guys would never get bored nor tired supporting me. 

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart!

For those that I have not met yet but are messaging me that they also want to meet me, I am also thankful to you for being there, despite the distance, silently watching and eagerly supporting. THANK YOU!!!

(YouTube Lounge Meet and Greet blog post will be up in a couple of days. Please stay tuned!)

CLOWN MAKEUP | Boyfriend Does My Makeup!

I tried for months and months to convince my BF to do a video with me. Few things on my list were Haul Video together or Boyfriend Does My Makeup. After finally coming up with ideas for our video, the next dilemma was to think of ways how we could get it done without showing his face in the camera. (Reason why we don't show his face in my videos will be answered in another post.) Finally, we thought of doing it with his back facing the camera! Yay! Since it's Halloween, we decided to give the BF TAG video a twist by asking him to do my makeup as a clown!


First, let me tell you why I thought of dressing up as a clown for Halloween. It's definitely not because I want to ride the wave of "Clown Sightings". It's because ever since I was a child, I have been amazed and fond of clowns. With the recent clown pranks and some bad stuff people do while dressed as clown, some people start forming negative connotations towards them. The urge to make the image of clowns positive again became stronger when a professor who taught me in college posted on his Facebook regarding his dismay towards the bad impression on clowns these days. He said he used to be a clown when he was younger. He mentioned how fun yet challenging job it was to give laughter and entertainment to people. I thought clowns should never have this negative connotation. I mean, how would I ever feel if pranksters suddenly dressed up in Teletubbies or B1 and B2?? Heck no! I love those cute characters and it would break my heart to see them be used in negative stuff. Thus, I asked BF to transform me into a cute and friendly clown!

Because Halloween isn't always scary. Clowns aren't all bad and YouTube makeup videos don't always have to be serious.



Enjoy our version of Boyfriend Does My Makeup challenge!


If you don't speak Filipino, please remember that you can always click the CC button at the lower right corner of the YouTube screen to turn on English subtitles.




BF and I really had a great time doing this challenge! Despite the fact it we finished filming the video at 1AM, the outcome was still satisfying. I can say he did a pretty good job, considering it was his first time ever to use makeup!

What do you think of his makeup skills? Do you think he did a good job?
Hmmm, what if we film another Boyfriend Does My Makeup challenge? In what character would you like him to transform me into? :)



I am really thankful that BF is supportive to even agree to do my makeup and be seen by his officemates hold makeup brushes and makeup pallete! 

Thank you for reading today! If you enjoyed the video or if you think my BF did a good job doing my makeup, then please don't forget to check out and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel, RealAsianBeauty, (HERE) for more fun videos and tutorials!

What I Think About Getting Paid To Blog (Part 2)


Three years ago, I wrote a blog post about what I think about getting paid to blog. If you haven't read the article yet, you may do so HERE. In that blog post, I wrote how I prefer raw and authentic blog posts and product reviews over paid ones. In my opinion, there is more sincerity and honesty in a review when there's no guideline, no storyline or no hashtags to promote. I tend to believe a blog review more when I know that the blogger wasn't sponsored. In that note, nothing turns me off more than a hard-sell blog post or video that is obviously paid for and the intention in making it was not to inform the viewers/readers but to hype the brand or product.

But, a lot has changed since 2013. Back then, I used to get only few free stuff. In fact, if I remember correctly, I used to get about 2-3 parcels per month and each parcel would contain either a soap, an unknown facial cream or few samples. Excuse the humble bragging, but these days, I get a lot of free stuff in a month. I think I have also gotten just a bit more known now compared before.



So, the number of parcels have changed... but did my perception on this matter change?
The answer is NO.

I started making YouTube videos in 2011. At that time, getting your name out there means hard work. You either have to be good or be hard-working. I remember how passionate I was in doing product reviews back then. Taking photos of each product, editing them, putting cute stickers and texts in the photo, and so on. Back then, being a YouTube Partner was not easy, either. You had to really want it, you had to deserve it, you had to apply for it! I was denied the first time I applied for YouTube Partnership because according to YouTube, I didn't have sufficient number of subscribers and views to be accepted. I was only accepted in the program on my second try. But these days, YouTube has made it easier for people to be Creators. That is why being popular and viral on YouTube is so much easier these days. Of course, getting views and subscribers would also come as a piece of cake. Surprisingly, some of these new comers even got more subscribers in just a span of few months than I ever worked hard for in 5 years. Crrrazy! Yes, that's how big and popular blogging and vlogging has become. 

Anyway, back to our topic. What do I think about being paid to blog in 2016?

In 2013, I mentioned in the blog post that while I most probably will be accepting paid sponsorships in the future, I promised my readers that I would still remain honest in my posts. The reason why I am talking about this now is because I got really alarmed when I heard from someone recently that YouTube is actually a business these days! Wow, I honestly never thought of it that way. (I guess that is the reason why I am not as popular as the others.) I don't know how to put my words without sounding jealous or butthurt. All along, for 5 years, I did this whole Blogging and YouTube thing just out of passion and my desire to inspire people. Little did I know, some people around me are actually making it as their business. I was even told some Creators would NEVER do a video without being paid. That broke my heart. I am not sure if I was doing it wrong all along. I got so confused that I had to ask myself.




To be completely honest with you guys, in my 5 years on internet, I have only accepted less than 10 paid projects! Surprised? I am, too! Geez, was I really doing it wrong all along?? I just learned people these days would never feature a single product without money, yet here I am, 5 years on the internet, but has only accepted few paid projects! No wonder I am poor and not popular. :(

Here are some issues I want to talk about in this blog post :

1.) What projects have Kristine done that she got paid for?
The projects that I did were "commercial" type of videos. Mostly, these projects were done and shot by a production team, rather than just me in my bedroom. A perfect example of that project is my L'oreal Hair Color Ad HERE.
I was paid for this project because the video was shown on the internet and was used by the brand to highly promote their product. And then, some projects were videos I did in my room featuring products I actually use in real life even before the brand e-mailed me and offered to pay me. In short, I only promote products that I truly like and really use.

2.) What I think about "Not doing a video without being paid"?
Before I answer this, can we all pretend I am writing this in my diary instead of my blog so I could be really honest with my answer? To be honest, I think that is a complete sell-out. I mean, I have always told people that before I became a YouTube Creator, I was first a fan. I was a fan of a lot of foreign creators (because they were the only ones present at the time) Little by little, I noticed how some of them started producing "commercial-like" videos rather than the bedroom videos I used to enjoy. I mean, as a YouTuber, I know how happy they must have felt. Rose to fame through YouTube! But as a fan, I was dismayed and heart-broken. The reason why I turned to YouTube was because I grew tired of "perfect" people on screen in flawless videos and advertisements. The reason I prefered YouTube was because I appreciated the rawness and the spontaneity in them. But the more they make obviously paid-for videos, the more I noticed they lose connection to their fans and viewers. 

3.) Is Kristine a hypocrite for saying she does not want to be paid to blog? 
Will she forever do free videos for these rich companies in exchange of few free items?
This is a tough situation for me. It's either I value my clients more and lose connection with my followers. Or I value my followers and lose potential clients. I have thought about this for nights before actually grabbing my laptop and writing this blog post. What do I really want? What really makes me happy? Is it to get money and be popular? Or be real and authentic? I guess, now that I am finally writing this, I have made a choice.
Everybody needs money, who doesn't? But there is really a thin line between doing a video for a product that you actually use in real life and then getting few bucks as incentive from it's company AND promoting something you don't really like and never really use in real life just for the money. 

Surprisingly, one of my favorite bloggers, Cheesy, posted something about money and career on her Instagram account. (cr:@Cheeserland)


I was truly disheartened when I heard that some actually "never promote anything without being paid". If I was a fan, how would I feel? Say my favorite Ryan Higa promotes something he doesn't really use in real life, like a toilet cleaner. How would I feel about it? Sure, I might go to the market and check the product out. But if Ryan just promoted the product because he was paid for but doesn't really use it in real life, I might get disappointed with the product. What's next? The backlash would always be towards Ryan and not to the product. Damn Ryan for promoting a toilet cleaner that does not work! I wonder what other products he had promoted that were hyped just because he was paid to do so!

That's how I would truly feel. And please note that I am a Ryan Higa lamp. I'm not sure if Ryan has ever promoted a toilet cleaner that does not work. I just used him as an example since he's my favorite.


If you've seen my videos, you've probably noticed me mention few brands. I also do collective hauls showing all the FREE PRODUCTS I get. To be honest, it is more stressful to do a paid video than to just receive few free items and never get paid. When you get free stuff, you can either post it on Instagram or Facebook, review on the blog and/or feature on YouTube. No stings attached, no hashtags to promote, no deadlines to meet. When you do a paid video, you have to post on Instagram,Facebook,Twitter, you have to review on the blog, you have to feature on YouTube, you have to attend their launching event, you have hashtags to remember and you definitely have deadlines to meet!

I may be losing money for not being greedy when it comes to making videos for clients. But at least, I know for certain that I am not losing my followers. Money can always be earned. Money will always come. If you are Christian, you know that God will always provide. But, loyal followers (like how loyal I am to Ryan Higa.lol) don't always come. And they are most certainly hard to earn.

Since you guys are hard to earn, please always remember my promise to you that I will always remain real, authentic and sincere in making videos and in writing blog posts. Since day 1 until now, I have never endorsed or recommended products I don't like, have never tried and have never used in real life. 

Of course, I will accept those monetary incentives from companies, especially if they require me to meet toxic deadline or create certain number of videos for them. I would also excitedly accept the money if the brand I am to promote is a personal favorite! But you can always be sure that whatever I am promoting, it is something I really like and believe in. From now on, the doubt of "she just featured it because she was paid" will forever be gone in your hearts because I am making this promise that I will always be true to it. The promise to always stay true, grounded, grateful and honest. 




Thank you so much for reading! I am writing this at 2 AM. God bless you all and please come back to this blog for more fun stories and blog posts!

Pen Pineapple Apple Pen (PPAP) Nail Art

I have a pen, I have an apple! Ugh! Apple Pen! ♪ 


PPAP or Pen Pineapple Apple Pen song is such a hit! I hear it almost everywhere! Some may love it, some may find it funny while to others, it may be annoying. But you have to admit that the beat of the song is really catchy! I bet you can even hear it playing on your head as we're talking about it! PPAP! ♪ 

Since I haven't done a nail art tutorial for a long time, I decided to create something out of this song. 
TADA! PPAP Nails! I hope you enjoy watching!



I'm sorry, I couldn't use the original song in my video. Since I am a law-abiding YouTube Content Creator, I know I can't just use famous songs for my videos unless, of course, I want a dispute or a copyright claim from the recording company. Hehe I hope you were able to enjoy the tutorial despite hearing a different upbeat song. :)



My nail art video tutorials don't get a lot of views and hits compared to my other YouTube videos, but ART is something I am passionate about and enjoy doing so I will still continue doing such videos. If you haven't seen my YouTube channel yet, please do check it out! I have other amazing nail art videos such as Salt Nail Art, Sugar Nail Art, Newspaper Nail Art, and MORE! Check out my YouTube Channel HERE and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE! It would mean a lot to me.

Thanks for being here!

YouTube Lounge Meet and Greet on October 15, 2016



2 years ago, I had my very first Meet and Greet. It could probably hold the record for the Smallest Meet and Greet ever! At that time, I had 1 person to meet and then me. It was a meet-up with a my Filipina viewer, Krishna, working in Thailand that went back home here in the Philippines for vacation. She messaged me saying she adores my videos so much and would want to meet me and hand me a few items she personally bought in Thailand. That was it.

MOR 101.9 Awards + MUA for a day!

Isn't it ironic that I love makeup but I admit that I am not yet good at it? I mean, makeup keeps on evolving and I get welcomed by a new trend while I'm still in the process of learning something that came out a few months back. Thankfully, there are people that trust me and see potential in me. 

A while back, I was invited to be a MUA or Makeup Artist for a day at the MOR (My Only Radio) 101.9 Awards Night. Before this, I was also invited to be a Makeup Artist for GMA 7's Blogger Style Camp. I am amazed how these people have so much trust in me when sometimes, I doubt my own skills. 

Anyway, let's talk about what happened at the MOR awards night... and how Daniel Padilla made me weep!


The awards night was held at the Kia Theater in Cubao, Araneta Center last August 2016. I went with my supportive BF and loads of self-doubt and nervousness! (hehe) 
Can I really apply makeup? Am I really good? Questions I kept asking my BF.
  

But as they say, one just has to believe in his/herself and anything is possible! 


Here's all the makeup I brought to the event.


My BF bought me this pretty pink makeup train case as a gift so I could use it on this day. Isn't he really sweet, thoughtful and supportive?  
I think I haven't told you guys yet that on my Mother's birthday, he initiatively bought her bouquet of beautiful flowers, birthday cake and sweet chocolate bar, I haven't, right? Like what I told my friend, I see so much good in him. But, let's talk more about him in another post.

ALL SET!



By the way, if you guys want to know what camera I use for my vlogs, it's my favorite Casio Exilim TR60. For proper tutorials and videos shot in my room, I use my old Canon 650 DSLR. But for outdoor videos, travel and event vlogs and cute selfies for Instagram, I use this pretty purple camera called Casio TR60. It used to be unavailable here in the Philippines! But it is here now and it is available at all Camerahaus branches!

Here is the vlog video! I hope you guys enjoy!




Okay, so at first I thought I was going to do makeup on celebrities. That's why I was so worried. I ended up doing makeup on MOR's jolly Disc Jocks! The nervousness in me was toned down because the DJs were friendly and nice. 

My first doll-up client was DJ Maki. 
To be honest, the reason why I was so anxious was because I know it takes me forever to finish doing makeup. I usually take 2 hours before I finish hair and makeup. That is tried, tested and proven! haha Be it on me or on someone else's face. I remember I also did my BF's sister's makeup for her debut party and it also took us 2 hours to finish! I'm crazy!

At first, DJ Maki was excited for her makeover. I was determined to finish her makeup in less than my usual "makeup time". But after an hour, she became distressed... At one point, I saw her made face because she was getting exasperated. My BF saw the face, too... But, I couldn't be shaken. I felt apologetic and shy at the same time that it's already taking us too long. I couldn't tell her that's my usual makeup time. Hehe

After a few moment, I was able to finish her hair and makeup! Horaaaaaay! 


This is her final look. What do you guys think? Would you also sit in my chair so I could do your hair and makeup for hours and hours?? Hehehe 
On that note, I saw her Instagram post and she mentioned jokingly that it took her 2 hours to get this look. I was a bit disgruntled but I couldn't complain because she speaks of the truth. Hehehehe ^_^

I have to improve on that part, I know. Gotta be able to finish a celebrity's makeup in 15 minutes next time...

My next client was DJ ChinaPaps. He was warm and friendly and conversed with me while I did his simple foundation, contour and powder look. 

DJ Chacha was there but I didn't do her makeup.  I just asked to take a photo with her and asked her few questions about her recent joining at Pinoy Big Brother. 

I also met DJ Bea! Such a lovely and beautiful lady! She told me she watches my YouTube videos. I really couldn't believe someone like her would watch my videos. I mean, who am I? I was so flattered! You guys can also check out her YouTube channel. From what I know, she does makeup tutorials and maybe a few vlog videos. Go and subscribe!

Here you see me with Hoya of Infinite! Hehehe Don't you find it funny how people of the same ethnicity look alike for people with different ethnicity. But for them, they totally do not look alike! Just like how Westerners think Asians look alike, I think most Westerners look alike... And some Koreans look alike, too. 


Okay, now let's get to the Daniel Padilla story. Daniel Padilla is my favorite male out of all the couples and love teams on ABS-CBN. I have been wanting to see him in person and maybe take a photo with him so I could brag-post it on my Facebook and Instagram. (hehe) I heard from my friend that Daniel Padilla was coming to the event but he was going to be at the latter part of the show. My friend gave me a tip to go to the side of the stage and wait for him because he was about to come. But I have been holding on my pee since lunch time. I figured I could make it back before he arrives. So, off I went to the bathroom and told my BF to stay put so he could capture the moment when Daniell arrives. But, damn pee. It took me so long to get to the restroom plus some happenings backstage. But I was positive I would see Daniel. When I went out of the comfort room, my BF was looking for me. He said "Where have you been? I have been looking for you. Daniel just left. Here, I took a photo for you."

Damn, Daniel. Why are you so hard to catch? In Tagalog, bakit ka mailap? Hehe!


Though I didn't get to see Daniel and his handsome face, I was still happy and satisfied because there's a man beside me, ever so loving and supportive, willing to carry my pink makeup train case just to be with me.
