(I have created two new categories for my blog. Catch Weekend Updates for the latest events concerning the previous posts I’ve created, and don’t forget to read my shameless promotions on my Shameless Plugs. Now back to the show.)
In 5…4…3…3 and one-fourth…go na teh!
Good evening, my dear readers and welcome to my Weekend Update…because one post is never enough.
Now for the headlines:
* Happy Slip releases new video in Youtube
* Jiri Borkovec sets his eyes to the United States
* Philippine Idol Mau Marcelo’s debut single receives good airplay
* and finally, Empress Maruja is now officially fat.
First in our top stories, Happy Slip, the Filipina-American who is becoming one of the top video bloggers in the world, has just released a new clip on Youtube continuing the saga about her colorful conversations with her quirky Filipino parents. Entitled “Peephole,” it is currently viewed over 170,000 times since its upload last January 9 and according to insiders, this could reach up to 300,000 in a month’s time. Here’s the whole clip of “Peephole” for your viewing enjoyment!
In other news, Jiri Borkovec will compete in the United States this year. The 24-year-old former junior bodybuilding champion from the Czech Republic will join the Musclemania Universe Weekend, which will be held on June 22 to 24 in Miami. Jiri’s thousands of fans, including yours truly, wish him the best of luck because he truly deserves it. So before I get accused of editorializing, check out his latest gym pics in this gallery. But if you’re a little impatient, here’s a teaser.
Oh! Sorry about that! I was staring at the pic. Gorgeous…
Meanwhile, the first Philippine Idol Mau Marcelo has just released her debut single after winning the much-coveted singing title. “On My Own,” the winner’s single that made the whole Araneta Coliseum stand in ovation, is included in this CD as well as six other tracks.
It is currently being played on Love Radio and Yes FM. Although “On My Own” has been generating good airplay, fellow Maureenians should unite and help her single be the most requested in the stations. Just type LOVERADIO [space] 4K ON MY OWN and send it to 2299.
And finally, Empress Maruja has finally come to terms about his figure. He is indeed fat, not big-boned or fluffy as previously claimed. His latest weigh-in at a local pharmacy is a few pounds shy of the dreaded 200-mark. The Empress promises to try his best to become slim by either taking cupfuls of laxative coffee or ingesting several tapeworms. Just kidding.
That’s all for The Weekend Update, because the one post is never enough. This has been Empress Maruja reporting. Shameless Plugs na po!
Mga Teh! Shameless Plug na po! Walang takot…walang inuurungan…walang hiya…
