Don't cha just wish that somewhere in the universe, there existed a simple to use guide on dating? Perhaps a blog of some sort that explained the types of guys that existed, with a list of qualities, tips and bits of knowledge? Don't cha just wish there was a section on that guide dedicated to Asian guys, and how to understand the types of Asians, be it Chinese, Filipino, or Korean?
JAMICH & Kimpoy’s first Youtube Vid together just went viral! Now, I blog about my randomly meeting Kimpoy & behind-the-scene talk tungkol “LOVE, SHARE, SMILE.”
WATCH: LOVE, SHARE, SMILE
Who is Kimpoy?
Last week, Kimpoy Feliciano tweeted me out of the blue. For the very few of you who haven’t heard his name before, Kimpoy Feliciano (legally named Paulo Feliciano) is a Twitter/FB/Youtube sensation, a Filipino guy that would describe himself as normal with 300,000+ hard core girl Twitter followers who definitely disagree. Imagine a nice guy with a randomly enormous following that even the majority of showbiz doesn’t understand. :)
That’s Kimpoy. He’s honestly a cool little dude.
Chatting With Kimpoy
Kimpoy thanked me for having mentioned him in a blog. Earlier, I compared Klout Scores of the “Most Influential Filipinos” on the internet, naturally including him in my blog. At the time, he was statistically the third most influential Filipino in social media (Click Here To Read)–well now, he’s the first, the FIRST MOST INFLUENTIAL PINOY ON SOCIAL MEDIA–as I told him when he asked, “I included you in my “Most Influential” list because that is a fact. If you want to thank someone, you should probably thank Klout for making that information accessible. All I did was make a unique graph of the Most Influential Pinoys based on information presented on Klout, but you’re welcome all the same, little buddy. Kudos to making the list!”
One conversation later, I decided to blog up Kimpoy. And now, Jamich & Kimpoy have launched their first every Youtube Short Film together!
Chismes & Funny Background Story
Shooting Took Place on Kimpoy’s Actual “Fan Day.”
Kimpoy Feliciano’s fans coordinated a day to meet Kimpoy. As promised, Kimpoy showed up, making their day. The funny twist: Kimpoy fans had no idea they all just got casted in Jamich’s next film. They all starred as themselves, Kimpoy fans. So at this very moment, dozens of Kimpoy fans will be watching themselves on Youtube. They had no idea they’d be watching themselves. Cute, di ba?
Thanks to the support of fans, Jamich and Kimpoy Feliciano have you to thank for their endorsement of Globe. Congrats to all three of you. Cheeri-O !
Cool beans !!
Look out for Jamich & Kimpoy Feliciano in the 2012 Tattawards!! They are both finalists competing in different categories. Hopefully winners din. Go for Gold !!
I’m an Uncle. Since I blog about whatever it is I happen to care about, I’m blogging up my 3-month old nephew Alex.
Now that Alex is snoozing in the other room wrapped around his daddy, his cuteness is unavoidable. He’s just that flipping adorable.
Alex is a lot of things to me. Lately he’s a reminder, a little reminder of what I want. He’s a reminder of the children I one day want to have. He’s a reminder of the kind of person I want to have them with.
After having watched just how committed his mom and dad are, a reality check settles in. They remind me I’m nowhere near ready for any of these reminders, but I look forward to it—very, very much. Reminders. Reminders.
As you might have noticed, I’ve been changing up my profile pics and background images on my social media–Facebook, twitter, and PilipinoKuno included. I’ve changed this background to something more in tune with my film project, The Voyage (2012). Here are snapshots.

Still, I’m not 100% sure this “Pilipino Kuno” background is what I’m looking for. I may have just become so used to my last one; I might just switch it back. Either way, you decide, vote, and I’ll just sleep on it. Which background do you prefer? The last one or this one?
Whether or not I keep this background for Pilipino Kuno, I have officially changed the background of my twitter page with the same concept. You can check it out here.
Send me your votes in the comment box below. Gnite tweeps, facebookers, and all PilipinoKuno readers! Ingat!
I jumped on a plane again. Couldn’t help myself. So, where am I heading?
This time around, the objective is somewhere “small.” I’ve spent most my lifetime vying for big cities. I thought I might as well try the “road less traveled by,” a.k.a. the flight less booked.
I promised you a post every day. Here it is. I dedicate this blog to my all-time favorite travel quotes/tweets . I can’t think of a better time to share them than while sitting somewhere in the sky.
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” –St. Augustine
“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” –John Steinbeck
“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” –Samuel Johnson
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” –Henry Miller
“Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” –Paul Theroux
I believe in my past life I was a cloud, traveling for free, peeing on ppl when they least expect it.—

I haven’t decided yet if I’ll tell you where I’m going, but I will tell you–I plan to be back with my blood by Monday. Baby diapers await.

Imagine donating money that isn’t yours to any charity of your choice? Sounding too good to be true? This is essentially the end game of Cause Cart, the recent start up of entrepreneur Michael Geer.
What is Cause Cart?
Cause cart is just a tool that would help assist e-commerce websites to donate a portion of every user’s online purchases to charity. So, where’s the money coming from? In Geer’s own own words,
“The money we’re actually raising, the money that goes out, is driven by the energy that’s already there,” Geer adds. “The actual money is coming from the marketing expense of the online shop.”
Ultimately, a chart gets micro funded with no additional cost to the buyer. As of now, purchases comparable to $20USD can expect 5% to be donated. With the numbers of online purchases made on sites such as Amazon every second of every day, we’re talking big bucks.
Great to see so many new faces joining the CauseCart! Only weeks away from launch…—
(@CauseCart) April 12, 2012
Why Does It Work?
Currently, charity has a very rigid sort-of structure. Most Americans make once a year lump-sum donations, if even that. Cause cart wants to revolutionize the very way we approach donations, from something infrequent to something more at the forefront of our attention. The basic idea: If you donate money on a regular basis and you are given the option as to whose the receiving charity, you give more thought to all causes. And of course the most immediate, absolutely beautiful outcome here is–more money is going to these causes.
How Can You “Cause Cart”?
The process itself is easy. Cause Cart users simply log into CauseCart’s website before making purchases (Link Available Here). As of now, they’re required to use only Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as a browser. From there, they just shop the way they normally do. Check out the look and feel of Cause Cart’s interface above.
Mashable elaborates about their more formal launch in the months to come,
CauseCart is preparing for a soft-launch in June with its Chrome extension, with a bigger push and a Firefox option in the near future.
Bottomline: Remember the name Cause Cart. It may make a bigger splash in the month to come. And if you’re an online shopper, remember to give something. After all, what you’re giving is no longer you’re own. Walang excuses.

As of 9 hours ago from posting, Lady Gaga just publicly confirmed via Twitter, her concert set for Indonesia has been canceled. Her unfortunate tweets:
We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me—
Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) May 27, 2012
Gaga’s Indonesian Promoters Big Daddy Entertainment made a longer statement on their site, citing “security reasons” for their cancellation and promising full refunds.
Lady Gaga’s Opposition
Like in most of the Asian continent, Lady Gaga comes with very divided public opinion. On one hand, her opposition came in numbers. Indonesia holds the largest population of Muslims in the world, by a good percentage. Lady Gaga upset a range of different religious institutions. Among all the criticism, the Islamic People’s Forum (FUI) and the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) echoed a condemnation made by many, claiming Gaga supports “pornography” and “satanic values.”
Those Defending “Mother Monster”
But on the other hand, Indonesia’ new sources fire up their own uproar. The Jakarata Post made many critical statements of their government, starting with the title of their article “Gaga Cancellation Reflects Weak Government”. They very well argue how this concert cancellations says less about Lady Gaga and more of Indonesia’s intolerant government, elaborating,
The decision by Lady Gaga’s management to cancel her planned June 3 concert reflects a government that is weak in the face of intolerant political groups, according to human rights watchdog group the Setara Institute.
“The authority of the state should have led to freedom of expression and guaranteed security. These are rights guaranteed in our constitution and in our laws,” Setara Institute chairman Hendardi said on Sunday.
Lady Gaga =Tourism
Whether you love or hate, Lady Gaga, there is no denying she stood to offer Indonesia something other than simply music—12,000 foreign tourists to spike Jakarta’s tourism.
Ministry data shows that these ticket-holding fans were coming from Australia, the Philippines and other ASEAN and Middle Eastern countries; That’s not even including her Indonesian fans coming from outside Jakarta.
These fans, on top of ticket sales, would have generated booked rooms in three- and four-star hotels in Jakarta. With a short notice cancellation of only 7 days, could she have already contributed something to Indonesia’s economy without even having shown up? Although disappointed, Gaga fans come in as many numbers as Gaga’s haters.
Consider The Total Number of Sold-Out Tickets: 52,000 tickets, with prices ranging from Rp 465,000 (US$50.75) to Rp 2.25 million, have already been sold since tickets sales opened on March 10.
Lady Gaga had made the occasional promise to do what it took so that show would go on. Just last week, Lady gaga responded to Indonesian authorities’ demands of censoring her show, by publicly stating she was “considering ditching her backup dancers and performing the concert solo in Jakarta.” If the Indonesian government hadn’t publicly denied Gaga’s concert, why was it ultimately canceled.
Big Daddy Entertainment explained it wasn’t just for “the pop star’s safety, but for the 52,000 fans who had bought tickets.” They felt groups could act violently not only to Gaga but Gaga’s fans.
There is nothing Holy about hatred.—

Lady Gaga was planning to perform in Jakarta, Indonesia at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium on June 3 and even sold out the show until the threats from a group of Islamic Gaga-haters became too much to deal with and Gaga and her people were forced to cancel the concert.
The group was opposing the concert because they thought that Gaga's clothing was too sexy and her dance moves were too provocative and that the concert and her music would corrupt their youth.
