Netflix’s Trese: Neither Here Noir There

by on Jun.18, 2021, under Film & TV, Geeky, Literature

* Not Spoiler-Free *

Last week, Netflix released its anime adaptation of the critically-acclaimed Filipino comics Trese (Budjette Tan / Kajo Baldisimo). It received much attention as the first Netflix adaptation of a Filipino property, and the road leading to the release was one of anticipation supported by a very creative, well-received PR campaign.

As a long-time Trese fan who has been following the comics for over a decade, I too was super stoked to finally see it come to the screen after 16 years since it was first published. Although a live action version would have been preferable, an anime version was also very much welcome. So upon release, I binged the 6-episode series – first with the Filipino dub, then with the English dub. It’s an easy binge, really – totaling about 3 hours (like I said, one LOTR Extended Edition film was longer).

#InSun: Funk It Up

by on May.21, 2021, under Film & TV, Geeky, My Life, Queer

It’s such great timing! The customized Funko Pops that I had made for In and Sun, two of my favorite Thai BL characters, were delivered just a few days before the 24th birthday of Pluem Purim.

Pluem, of course, played the character of In in My Dear Loser: Edge of 17, while Chimon Wachirawit played Sun opposite him. The characters did small cameos in My Dear Loser: Happy Ever After before fully reprising the roles (and tying loose ends) in the second episode of the Our Skyy anthology, Our Skyy: #InSun.

There have been so much merchandise for other GMMTV properties, so it’s always been a frustration of mine that these two underrated characters have not been given much attention. Now, I had learned about a Funko customizer last year whom I commissioned to create customized Funko Pops of me and my friends. So this year, I decided to again commission from Oda Exclusive Custom Pops: In and Sun funkos!

Project 2018

by on Dec.31, 2017, under Geeky, Literature, My Life

So over lunch yesterday, Jessica made me, Evan, Roni, and Deo write down our projects for 2018 to motivate us towards actual completion.

#1 and #2 are both me, but #3 is her suggestion, and now I am honorbound as an Elven Prince to actually do it. Well, try anyway. Ha!

(Do or do not, there is no try.)

Meanwhile, over same said lunch, we:

Gorged ourselves on delicious Negrense fusion cuisine (Sarsa’s menu is chocful of amazingly delicious food, including fusion Beef Rendang, Sisig Inasal, and Sinigang Fried Chicken Wings – you need to try this place out)

Storming The Dance Floor

by on Dec.17, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky, Snark

In honor of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, here’s a little mini-throwback to some talented Stormtroopers. At least, even if they can’t hit their enemies, Stormtroopers can dance.

Kate Does Gal

by on Dec.13, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky, Queer

One of my favorite women doing a hilarious impression of one of my favorite women. Kate is just as much of a goddess as Gal. Also, that activity Gal apparently did during dinner with the SNL cast? I do that when I meet new people on my team. And oh man I wish I’d seen Gal when I was in the Maldives. And Kate, Kate, Kate, too.

Man alive, I’m ranting. I love these two ladies!

Manila So Mysterious

by on Nov.30, 2017, under Geeky, My Life

My friends and I have been getting a kick out of Mystery Manila. It’s an entertainment facility that specializes in themed escape room fun.

We first tried it in the Century Mall branch a few months ago, but we failed to crack open and escape their Mutants’ Mission, which is an X-Men inspired challenge.
