your attention please!

by now, i'm getting a feeling that indiana jones is not a good movie. i've smsd all of my friends and they all turned me down. ouch! somehow, the movie does not appeal to them. this is exactly one of the downsides of being single. you can never get a movie date right away. and then i thought, would my single life be more fabulous if i'm with somebody? truth is, i've never been really in a relationship ever. as matter of fact, i've never been with anybody, if you know what i mean. it's a choice i've made and it's a difficult choice to stand by. but to answer my own question, i really don't know if things would have been different and i don't think i'll ever know. pathetic, i know.

my thumb has been sore sending sms. nobody still wants to see the movie with me. it's tough being alone. but then again, it could have been the movie.

you know you love me

your attention please!

so, i got a tag from blog gurl last week for my contribution to the blogging community with emphasis on creativity, design and material. i know, it's nothing major. but, an award is still an award right?

after the tag, i was not really expecting something else. but, the fates must have been on my side, when i came across this entry. y'all have to read about it. it's the nicest thing ever written about me.

first the tag, second the write up. so, what's next? win a miss universe title? no, definitely not. one thing is for sure, you know you love me...

the attention whore has arrived

your attention please!

y'all know i'm an attention whore right? imagine how happy i was when i get tagged by blog gurl to receive the arte y pico award. i think i died and went straight to heaven.

isn't she loveliest the thing evar? i can't believe it, there's actually one person out there who thinks my posts are worth her time. to my other dear readers (if there are any), you all give meaning to my being as an attention whore. thank y'all.

ok, enough drama. so, what does it take to get this tag?

here are the mechanics:

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
Make sure you visit the link above.

i had a hard time picking my favorites. so, my major criteria was how frequent do i visit the blog. after putting this criterion in place, i came up with my list. and the winners are:

the lyka bergen show
diva wears nada
mandaya moore-orlis
tigguh's life in random

congratulations y'all!

alright, that's all from me for now. this attention whore needs to get some beauty rest. i'm off to a a beautiful island this weekend. exactly how beautiful? this beautiful:

moalboal, here i come!

happy feet

your attention please!

crocs is probably the ugliest footwear i've ever seen in my entire life. i'm typically a form over function person. i like things to look pretty, most especially if i get to wear them. but this fashion philosophy took
a back seat when i purchased a pair of crocs yesterday.

they're unbelievably lightweight and comf
ortable, i love wearing them. if i could wear them everyday to the office with my business casual, i'd probably do it. but of course i'll look funny wearing my dress slacks and polo with these pair of silly looking sandals. so, it's a definite no-no.

just like what others say, don't judge the book by its cover. or in this case, when buying footwear, don't let your eyes deceive you, use your feet!

on an entirely different topic, i went to my orthodontist today, straight from my 10pm-7am shift, for my regular check up. i fondly call him dokkie. he went through the routine stuff: he checked my teeth, then my braces, then he replaced the rubber bands. everything was boring until he asked his assistant to bring out the scalpel. i was jolted from the chair, i stood up and asked dokkie several questions. there were other medical stuff he discussed, most of them i didn't understand, but the bottom line was, he needed to remove a portion of my gum line to prevent my teeth from moving.

that's dokkie preparing the scalpel.

look at the size of that needle!

anyway, the whole thing did not hurt. but, i felt so funny because after the procedure was finished, it felt like my lips was like 10 inches thick. for a moment, i felt like angelina jolie with an imaginary super sized lips.

alright, enough blabbing. i must get some sleep now. mygreenboi signing out.

it's raining, men.

your attention please!

the rainy days are here and summer is officially off the calendar. this is such a major bummer because i haven't really summered at all.

last month, we planned a beach get away in bantayan, a small island north of cebu.

the place boasts of crystal clear waters and its long stretch of powdery sand. think boracay!

our plan never materialized because everybody changed their minds at the eleventh hour. i was drooling looking at the photos. i can only imagine the countless photo opportunities i could have with sixto. i'm still hoping i can visit this paradise since my friends are still planning on going middle of june. so, i'm keeping my fingers crossed (toes included).

meanwhile, my company will have a team outing this weekend at a pool resort just outside the city. this is how it looks like:

i know it's not as beautiful as bantayan, but it's the only piece of summer i will be getting (if there is anything left of it).

so, i am bidding goodbye to summer. now, say hello to my fake tan.

weekend tv programming is crap

your attention please!

imagine the horror i had when the first thing i saw when i turned on the tv was this:

his nose was just overwhelming. it was like plastered across the whole screen. i immediately turned off the tv and resorted to surfing the internet instead. internet is so much better during weekends. tv programming on weekends is crap. i should probably get cable.

happy mother's day mama!

your attention please.

you know how the saying goes action speaks louder than words?

my mama is never the wordy type. you see, i come from a family who has a hard time expressing our love towards each other through words. we never say i love you in public. but there is this one incident that really stands out. while having a casual conversation with mama, she asked me if i still have plans of settling down, get married and start a family. i, of course, immediately dismissed the idea. but what she said after that moved me, she said: "if i'm already gone, who will take care of you?". up to this day, every time i remember this, i get teary eyed. while i'm writing this post, my eyes are swelling with tears. it's true, mothers will always love you unconditionally. they may not say it all the time, but every inch of them screams their love towards their children.

mama may not not always say she loves me, but i know she loves me no matter what, gay or straight.

happy mother's day ma! i love you.

mariah for photoshop

your attention please!

behold the power of photoshop:

look at those man-made curves. i also use photoshop to process my photos. but this, i have to say, is one of the best photoshop jobs i've seen. it makes me want to grab a bikini, pose ala mimi and sing: Retouch my body, Put me on the floor, Wrestle me around...Retouch my body!

ladies and gentlemen, jordin sparks

your attention please!

i took sixto (my nikon d60, for those who doesn't know) for some fun. i asked one of my office mates to pose for me.

ladies and gentlemen, i give you jordin sparks:

that's the real jordin sparks. here are the photos i took:

(click photos to enlarge)

i did her make-up and the photo shoot in less than 2 hours. i know, the shot is still amateur. but practice makes perfect, right?

so that i can really do some practice, i'm doing a project right now. i'll be taking profile head shots or photo shoot or whatever for my friends and officemates. i think it's a lovely and a very exciting idea. i'm thinking one subject every weekend. which brings me to my dilemma: i need volunteers.

pretty please, c
an you be my volunteer?

fight the seven signs of aging!

your attention please.
no, i did not buy olay total effects because gretchen barreto is endorsing it...

no gretchen barreto will ever convince me to buy a pro
i bought the product because ed, a straight guy friend of mine, is proof that the product really works. being an island boy (he was formerly the project manager of an underwater project for shangri la boracay), he loves soaking under the sun. but one time, he had too much sun exposure, his face turned super red. his mom gave him olay total effects to remedy the sun damage. after barely 2 weeks, his face really looked nice. rosy cheeks, smooth , radiant and all. i learned all about this when i had my coaching session with him. i can really tell the product works because i was staring at his face up close. i really noticed the changes, as in. i bought the variant for oily skin since my face is like a minola factory.

ed's the guy in the photo to the right, taken wayback october 2007, pre-olay total effects. his skin looks a lot clearer now. ssshh, he doesn't know i'm posting his photo in my site. ;-)

make love with the camera!

meet my boyfriend

your attention please.

everybody calls their new toy baby. but i think i'm too young to be a mother or a father so i refuse to call my new toy baby. instead, i'm calling him my boyfrie
nd. here he is:

(it's a nikon d60, yey!)

now, what i need is a name for new boy toy. gik calls her d60 dixie. as in short for d60. charles calls his d40 nikki for obvious reasons. ivy calls hers nikko. so, it looks like i'm the only person left with no name for my newest toy. so, i need your creative powers to work for me. help me come up with a name, pretty please?

ps: i'd like to thank two guys who helped me get this new toy. they are:

butch who helped me decide which unit to go for. i was deciding to either get a d40x or a d60. a dslr owner himself (he owns a canon eos 400d), he pointed out the pros and cons of each unit. i ended up buying the d60, thanks to his advice.


arvin who braved the streets of quiapo and bought the camera for me. i jokingly call him my new best friend because of the favor he extended to me. thank you bff!

pps: whoever comes up with the coolest name will win a dinner date with either butch or arvin. kidding! i'm serious on the name though.

rock is my new pop

your attention please!

you'll never guess what's the latest addition to my ipod.

i'm usually a pop music person. i think the lyrics are so much easier to remember, especially when it comes to the chorus part. but lately i am being drawn to listening to rock music. an officemate lent me three of his cds of a local band called urbandub. apparently, this band had its humble roots here in the queen city of the south. i have not listened through the whole playlist, but i have good vibes about this whole new addition to my itunes library. this is a deviation from the kind of music i'm into but what the heck, i say, rock on!

for the fashion naive

your attention please!

this post is for the fashion naive.

to the girl who asked me why i'm wearing a table runner take a look at this:

and this:

to the guy who commented that i'm starting a trend and yet nobody seems to be following, take a look at this:

this is THE trend. i'm not starting one, correction.

back to the girl who doesn't know what to call these things. fyi, it's called a yashmagh. you ignorant!

mygreenboi is not migraine boy

remember that kid with a splitting headache from mtv?

this blog is not about him.

i was thinking of a name for my blog site. i wanted a catchy and funny name so i came up with mygreenboi for the following reasons:

  • green is my favorite color.
  • i'm from cebu, and visayans are notorious for mixing up their vowels (e becomes i, o becomes u, etc). i think migraine boy, when said the visayan way will sound like mygreenboi.
  • mygreenboy is no longer available. so, boi is really a substitute for boy.

so everybody welcome to my blog. please feel free to come back because i want your attention. i promise not to give you any headaches.

your attention please!
