Happyslip, one of the most popular YouTube personalities, is home. A Filipino-American who grew up in the US, she’s never been to the Philippines where her parents were born. (Incidentally, her dad came from my home province Nueva Ecija, so I learned).
Christine a.k.a. happyslip is popular for her humorous videos depicting mostly of her Filipino family heritage. I’m a fan, the lady is down -to-earth funny. For the first time, though, she cries on video. Guess being home is overwhelming, eh.
She’ll be traveling across the archipelago with the Department of Tourism. I just think that this is the wittiest promotional activity that the government has done so far. Imagine millions of YouTube viewers across the globe (translation: potential tourists) watching her as she tours around the wonderful tourist destinations.
Ok, I need to do this. Free the mind. Do fresh things after.
* Guitarchic has Pinkseo. GannsDeen has Superblessed. The relunctant leader has the accidental missionary. I always wondered why popular bloggers have to maintain two blogs at the same time. Until a word came out, I forgot from whom, from Yuga, I guess — niche. I’ve been learning this from leadership books and forgot to apply in my blog. Life 2.0, being a “personal” blog is chapsuey. It has everything in it — personal life, theology, technology, work related posts. I am trying to win everyone, I’m winning no one :D Anyway, I’ll make this as some kind of experiment. I’m going to divide my blog into two. I’m activating my multiply.com blog and name it “it’s.not.about.me“. While the title said it, it’s actually going to be about some personal stuff. Call it mushy, light, mind dumps. Life 2.0, this blog, on the other hand will contain some hard, call it impersonal stuff. Politics, current events, theology, technology. See if it works out. I’m going to cross link the two blogs to reference those who are interested of the other.
* I’m so loving jQuery. In my opinion, if maximized, it can be a great tool for programmer-designer collaboration.
* Happyslip is releasing a DVD? Man, YouTube superstars are really getting a career out of their videos!
