Swimsuit Auntie: Fat Chinese Woman’s Anti-Tanning Swimwear

A colleague shared this site and when I opened it and read the comments below..I couldn't help but laugh out loud (literally). 

Swimsuit Auntie, an swimming auntie wearing a full-body swimsuit with a head covering and swimming cap exposing only her two eyes and mouth like a “robber’s mask”, her body therefore completely jet-black as if it were “covered with oil”, became famous on the internet, boosted by netizens who called her “Swimsuit Frogman”.

These were the comments that caught my attention: 

1. I thought there must’ve been an oil spill somewhere again.

2. Almost scared me to death, I thought she was a terrorist…

3. The old man in the background is the highlight, his entire body red, like Hellboy.

LOL! ^__^

Divisoria Smarts: 5 tips on How to Haggle Like a Pro

I read this very interesting and helpful article from Entrepreneur online.

Hahaha natawa naman ako. Parang yun yun gawain ko. So I'm sharing it to you here:

Divisoria Smarts: 5 tips on How to Haggle Like a Pro

By Carlo P. Mallo

Aug 25, 2011

Divisoria is not only a supplier’s haven, it is also a place to learn a lot about running a business and that includes negotiating for the goods you want at the price you want it, or at least close to it. For the ordinary person, it’s what is known as haggling. asked Divisoria expert and Entrepreneur Philippines’ managing editor for the magazine Eileen Ang for five tips on how to haggle your way to cheap prices in Divisoria.

1. Start haggling for 50 percent off the price tag.
"Since they will not give it to you at the first price that you want, haggle for a very low price,” Eileen said. Usually, the deal ends at a 25 to 30 percent discount or halfway between the original price and the first bargain offer.

2. Don’t show interest for the product you are haggling for.
“Be ready to walk away if they do not give it at the price you want or refuses to bargain,” Eileen said. By feigning disinterest in the product, the store owner might give in to your price or work around it.

3. Scout around for cheaper prices.
“The first store does not have the cheapest prices, especially if it’s located by the entrance,” Eileen said. In most cases, the farther away the store is from the entrance, the cheaper the prices.

4. Use Chinese phrases.
It’s an urban legend but Eileen swears by it. By speaking a few phrases of the Chinese dialect,Fookien, you can actually work your way to cheaper prices. “Sometimes the store owners are more inclined to give discounts if you speak to them in Chinese,” Eileen said.

5. Don’t be obvious that it’s your first time.
“Show a little guile,” Eileen said. Unscrupulous store owners can take advantage if they sense that you are not used to the Divisoria-way and even give you higher prices.

My Favorite Harry Potter Character

When I watched the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows 1", I realized who my favorite character of the movie was. It's no other than of!

It's DOBey!

Did you see how dedicated he was? How powerful he could have been if only he was not bound by elves' duties?

MyPhone Q19i Review

You see guys I posted here that I lost my old MyPhone phone last June 10 and I'm just able to buy a new unit just last August 15th. So in short I've been 'disconnected' for more than 2 months. (pity me T.T) Anyway, nadala na ko so here I am resorting to really cheap phones.

I just bought this MyPhone Q19i phone and I wanna share my experience with it.

I bought the unit for 1,388.00 pesos (promo) in one of MyPhone stalls in Robinsons Novaliches. The sales lady persuaded me to buy an acetate so the total became 1,500 pesos for a unit with acetate.

This is the promo I was telling you about.

Here are the specifications and features:

[Just click the image to enlarge]

The unit comes with:

*a box (of course)
*warranty card
* unit manual

Available in:

*bright yellow (not advisable since it would just attract much attention from ominous people lurking around)
*brown (my unit)

[this picture is mine]
Make sure that before the sales person opens this box in front of you the seal is not broken or tampered.

I chose brown so as not to attract ominous eyes.

Here's when you open the box.

I see it's working.

charger and earphone

The unit manuals (very thin and I must say it's not so detailed.)

Let me just enumerate the things that I noticed.


1. It has a loud/clear speaker
2. It's light weight.
3. camera is decent enough
4. Designating an image on contacts doesn't actually work
5. Has specific buttons in calling through sim 1 or sim 2


1. The fully-charged battery doesn't last long in normal use. You see I don't use phones for a long time. But I was wondering why the battery easily ran out.
2. Charging takes a long time. I once charged my unit for 1 1/2 hour but the 'battery bar' was still the same.
3. Parang 'naghang' siya ng nanoseconds when you just click once button.
4. FM Radio recorder is a little blurred.

A piece of advice: Ask for a receipt. Most stalls don't issue receipts. They say the WARRANTY SLIP will do. Don't settle for this. Ask for any kind of receipt indicating their stall name signed by the sales person.

So there you go! For questions just leave a message on the COMMENT box below.

This is the first time I made a review for a specific product and I think it's fun. Maybe I'll do this again next time.

My sister has a collection of Entrepreneur magazine and I used to think they were just clutters on our cabinets. I even attempted to burn some. But now that I'm planning to put up an online store, I find it really helpful. I've read 2-3 magazines already and I really found every article worth my money. I specially liked the tips on how to start home-based businesses. So last weekend I bought this old issue from BOOK SALE.

I was just so attracted to the cover so I chose this one. (Yeah! I judge a mag on it's cover.)

And these are the pages I've finished so far.

Here in this page you can get ideas about schools for aspiring entrepreneurs.

What I like most about this mag is that they feature real entrepreneurs who started small. They really are a source of inspiration. Aside from that, they also give the contact details of suppliers featured.

So thanks a lot Entrepreneur Mag. I hope to be featured in one of your articles when this 'business' of mine becomes successful in the near future.

Feeling 'Ugly'

I just like this 2Ne1 song about girls having insecurities.

"Ugly" by 2NE1

It doesn't seem so bad to feel down sometimes. There will always be times that we'd feel insecure but let's not let it get in the way of reaching our dreams.

Maybe from time to time.

After listening to this..I didn't feel 'ugly' at all.

"I think I'm ugly and nobody wants to love. Just like her I wanna be pretty. I wanna be pretty. Don't lie to my face...tellin' me I'm pretty."

Raw Talent by the Sidewalk

I stumbled upon this video on one blog site and I couldn't help but be really amazed. I shed tears while listening to it. I couldn't imagine a talent like that just left neglected.

In fairness, street child siya pero medyo malapit ang accent.

Here it it:

O diba?


I love it!!

Sana madiscover tong batang to.

Update: I posted this even before GMAnewsTV released this article about him. It was said that this kid is Arjohn Gilbert from Marcos Village in Mabalacat, Pampanga.

Check out the article below:

Aeta street kid singing Bieber is a hit on Youtube

Arjohn Gilbert from Marcos Village in Mabalacat, Pampanga sells flutes for a living, but he can also make head-bopping music without any instrument other than his own voice.

The young Aeta boy is often spotted singing in front of Puregold at the Clark Freeport Zone.

"I'm singing the Justin Bieber, the 'Baby'," says Gilbert before launching into an energetic rendition of the hit song, which was the first video on Youtube to earn 500 million page views.

Thanks to Youtube user Ryanesky, Gilbert can now be seen on YouTube, singing hits from Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey, and Sean Kingston.

Gilbert seems to be a natural performer, and his enthusiasm is infectious.

"Sorry for the unstable video coverage... I had to bounce to the beat!" the uploader apologizes in the video description, explaining the shaky video in his notes.

The video was uploaded on July 31, 2011 and has gained over 30,000 views in the past three days alone. It has been liked by over 3,000 viewers and disliked by only 20 people, and is being rapidly shared across social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

"Despite his poor living condition, God gave him talent :) He must be discovered!" said Facebook user Isabel Bulatao on her wall.

"Akmang akma lang sa boses niya," Facebook user Joselle Credo observed of Mariah Carey's "When Angels Cry," which Gilbert sang as easily as he belted out parts of Sean Kingston's "Shawty's Like a Melody in My Head" and Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are."

Twitter user Francis Chiu shared the video with TheEllenShow, describing Gilbert as a "homeless kid but with killer vocals."

YouTube users who watched the video also think Gilbert is very promising.

"awesome!!!!! good diction too. i think we can have some space beside maria aragon. :)," wrote bien2t.

"Sisikat 'to," commented YouTube user Jordiniffic. "Mas sisikat pa 'to kaysa kila Moymoy Palaboy," agreed Captainbarbell10.

"May future ang batang 'yan... Sana ma discover siya," commented SuperRyanjoshua.

Scholarship grant

It's not the first time Gilbert has attracted the attention of netizens. In fact, he had already been "discovered" before.

In 2009, Gilbert was featured on the GMA public affairs show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. "Pag kumakanta siya, hindi ko pinapansin, parang wala sa akin," Gilbert's mother Rebecca said on the program. "Pero nagulat na lang po ako na may pumunta dito sa amin," she said.

"Marami rin nagsasabi sa akin, nakikita siya sa Internet. Baka madiskubre ka na diyan Arjohn, sabi ko," added his father Johnny.

"Pagbalik ko po dito pinalakpakan po ako, sabi ng Barangay Captain magaling ako," said Gilbert in an interview on 24 Oras.

Many people can't help but take a video when they see Gilbert performing on the street. On YouTube, several people have uploaded videos of Gilbert, which have been viewed thousands of times.

Gilbert's family and neighbors are his audience when he practices, but his Internet audience is much larger.

A video of Gilbert singing Colbie Calliat's "Bubbly" was viewed over 150,000 times, while one of him singing Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" had almost 200,000 views.

On Wish Ko Lang aired on March 21, 2009, Gilbert was given a videoke mic, a scholarship grant for sessions at the Center for Pop Music Philippines Inc., and a contract with GMA Artists Center.

Gilbert's contract expired last year, and although Gilbert gets "discovered" with every video of him, his dream to become a professional singer has yet to be fulfilled.

Two years after his first television appearance, Gilbert can still be found selling flutes around Clark, turning heads and impressing people with his talent.

Gilbert may not be as fortunate as children with easy access to the Internet, but in the age of YouTube, even a street kid can get his fifteen minutes of fame, or at least, his share of shares. - YA, GMA News
