Digital Life by Chin Wong

Flip blogs

"...I also found the online journal of Jay David, a Filipino engineer working in Singapore. He was named "Best Blogger of 2004" for his irreverent Kwentong Tambay ng Siraulo sa Singapore ( by the Philippine Blog Awards. Genteel readers may be shocked by the off-color jokes and language, but the posts can be hilarious."

good thing AV is makulit today. he's currently singing "old tired myself"... you know, that song by celine dion. it's like i'm listening to a morning radio gag show. i miss reading his blog... somehow it mysteriously disappeared, and he seems to have no plans of resurrecting it. another thing that makes me laugh nowadays is reading batjay's blog. he's a riot! i discovered him through T.

Slacking off

Moster Inc. - Allan Moster Simonette Moster Jalo Moster

Wow, three days na akong nag pre pretend na me ginagawa sa opis. Ang hirap palang mag kunwari. Natapos ko na kasi yung ginagawa ko pero since hanggang biernes pa yung sked para matapos eh sinasamantala ko na :) Teka, maintindihan kaya ng mga kano tong entry na to? Patay!

Nagtingin tingin ako ng blog na nominated dito. Yung site ni Batjay nangibabaw. Di ako napagod kakabasa ng mga entries nung loko. Nakakaaliw! I wonder where he gets his ideas?

Elevated to the Next Level

Din's World, August 2004

I was on my way to meet Jay for breakfast. And, while I was in the elevator, I got busy returning my phone inside my bag when I realized I was going the opposite direction... going up! Crazy huh? Turns out I forgot to press the basement button and when it opened on the ground floor and the lady boarded, it automatically went up, of course.

Anyway, after an additional 5 minutes in the elevator, I was finally off to Starbucks to meet the funniest man online. I got there first (thank God!). Boo! And he was there 3 minutes after. We had a honey-glazed doughnut and mint blend tea each (c/o Jay... maraming salamat po kuya).

I had a grand time chatting with him, laughing rather. But, I missed spidey. In December perhaps. Topics discussed withheld on the grounds that it definitely can incriminate me. Hahaha.

Oh, and my heartfelt thanks for the ma pa (from Bee Cheng Hiang no less)!!! I know the long journey to get it to me was the better part of the gift. Ang sarap, pare! Promise, I'll share it with my babies.

That's Jay, another good online friend proven to exist in real time! See you in December! (On a side note: mas maputi ka in person... Jet, blineach mo ba?)

Just in case you're wondering what the letter says, here it goes:


26 Sept 2004

Hi Din Din!

Dahil sa sobra mong pangungulit,
hindi ko nalimutang maghanap ng BCH bakwa
sa airport. No mean feat -- dahil ulyanin ako.

I hope you guys enjoy the meat
sent w/much... with much -- I don't know.
Hehehe. Concern? Affection? Di pa nga kita nakikita.

In any case, all the best from Jet & I.


P.S. Nagtae ang sign pen ko. Gardemet.

Secondthoughts ni DON MANUEL VILORIA - 09/07/2004

The Pinoy's Fascination With Eggs
Posted by Manuel Viloria

Pinoys love eggs. We eat it in so many ways, at different times of the day. For breakfast, there's tuyo (fried fish) with egg. For lunch, we eat it with arroz a la cubana. For dinner, when the cook is not feeling that creative, we eat egg with tapa.

Pinoys also associate eggs with jokes. Just sprinkle the word itlog (Tagalog for egg) in your conversation, and watch how the other Filipinos react. That reminds me of this incident many years ago during the noontime show "Student Canteen."

GALING KAY MANUEL L QUEZON TRILOGY: (astig! na special mention ng isang respetadong tao na apo pa ng idol kong don manuel l. quezon)

Last night during dinner, someone mentioned he reads my blog and praised the blog of Batjay. This made me resolve to catch up on my blog-reading.

Want to know why Batjay's blog has fans? Read this entry, which made my day: Kwentong Tambay: SIR, ANONG GUSTO NYO SA ITLOG NYO? NILAGA? PRINITO? O MAY PULBOS?

The Phil. Accdg. to Blogs

Featured Pinoy Blog of the Week, August 20, 2004:

where in the world is spiderman Someone once said that we should never let the child in us die. Ever. It is the secret mental stability. Perhaps, this 37-year-old engineer lives by that credo. Otherwise, how can he take a single piece of toy and create a whole outrageously funny blog with it?

Batjay's Spiderman has been to the beach, the movies and has even gone on a plane ride to Australia. Ronald McDOnald has even obligingly posed for a photo with him once.

It is difficult to write about Where in the World is Spiderman? It is a blog to be experienced, not to be described. It's irreverent adult humor has to be savored rather than told. It is a blog that tells us that playing is as essential as breathing.

Visit Where in the World is Spiderman?!

ON CRASHING BLOG SITES: "The Caped crusader to the rescue"

In cases like this, who do you call? Nobody else but the caped crusader, Batjay! He simply told me to republish because it seems that my template was corrupted. Even offered to send him my username and password so that he could take a look. (Well, the idea did cross my mind but that would be imposing too much) I followed his suggestion to republish. First I clicked on edit so that I can get to the "republish" button and voila, they appeared. Although the links were no longer there, at least, the entries and comments remained in tact. What a relief! So, bloggers out there, I hope nothing of this sort ever happens to you. But anyway, if it does, donít despair. There are a lot of good Samaritans out there ready to help. After all, we are just one big community.

Audio Blogging With MP3 Files - Secondthoughts - 08/16/2004

I noticed that Batjay put a link directly to his MP3 file. When you click on that link, you'll download the MP3 file first before your computer plays it. For some people, it's as if nothing happens, because it can take a while before they hear the song.

A Virtual Ate

Filipinos like Ate Sienna, Gerry Egbalic of and Jay David of continue to serve Filipinos who have discovered blogging as a means of conveying qualms, successes, angst and opinions ranging from personal to political. Their commitment to help other Filipinos to connect and bond through this medium is extremely commendable.

Kudos to you from me and Somalilanders from all over the world who enjoy the benefits of this blog. I hope we do personally meet someday.

Renaissance Girl ni Ate Mona

I've been really busy lately. So busy that I'm starting to break out -- a sure sign of work-related stress. But instead of attempting to touch your hearts with a tale about my long battle with acne, today, I have decided to redirect you to one of many on-line "pastures" I enjoy -- where the grass is greener, the writing touches or tickles, and zit puss is non-existent.

The first stop on this tour of the www is the home page of a guy from the land where unemployment is low, cigarette boxes have pictures of dead babies and chewing gum is frowned upon. Meet Batjay.

Pinoy Blog > BatJay at Kwentong Tambay - Secondthoughts - 01/28/2004

Thanks to Mona and her entry about forgetfulness, I stumbled upon BatJay's Kwentong Tambay blog. It's such a Pinoy blog, what with the Taglish, the humor, and the expressions that make it seem he's right beside you. But I'm particularly drawn towards his January 15, 2004 post entitled: Happy Birthday MyLab (Happy Birthday, My Love).
