Why Heterosexuals Should Not Talk about Homosexuality


Tolerance and Acceptance

Tolerance and Acceptance

Well, this a bit late but I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about my view on Tintin Bersola’s “Being Gay” article.

Originally, I want nothing to do with the article because obviously Tintin does not have any idea about how to raise a gay kid, partly because she is a straight parent.

This is why straight people should never talk about gayness and homosexuality. Why? Because they have no inkling what gay people go through everyday. You can argue that you have lots of gay friends but that does not give you a deeper insight on the issues, concerns, and problems of the gay community.

With that being said, we appreciate the effort of the heterosexual conmunity to discuss the topic but unless you are careful with your words, you’d end up offending a lot of gay people, just ask Miriam Quiambao. 🙂

I’m fortunate enough to have a family that tolerates and accepts my gayness. Unfortunately, there are millions out there that still suffer from the brunt of having homophobic parents and growing in a homophobic family and community. The humiliation, the pain, and the reproach still remains.

If you really wanna help us, then just accept us for who we are.

How NOT to Have a Kim-Maja Feud


Respect begets Respect

Respect begets Respect

They say in showbiz, there are no permanent friends, only permanent interests. Kim and Maja’s feud over Gerald Anderson certainly proves the wisdom of this quote.

Unfortunately, the same can happen to us normal human beings. You do not have to be a celebrity to fall in love with your bestfriend’s ex. So how do you avoid falling into the same scenario? Here’s some tips for you guys:

Unwritten Rule: Exes are Off Limits

Common decency dictates you should never, ever fall for your bestfriend’s exes. No matter how long ago the relationship has ended, stay away from any exes, even if they are as hunky as Anderson.

Respect

In relation to the tip above, exercise respect, if not for your friend, then for yourself. Remember, recycling only works with garbage!

Value Friendship

You can find millions of other guys in the world, but finding a real friend is a dime in a dozen. Think about what you and your bestie has gone through in the past. Is it really worth throwing away just for one guy? I don’t think so.

Sure, you can never tell your heart not to fall in love, but love stems from attraction and attraction begins when you allow yourself to get close to the person. Your loyalty should be with your friend. Avoid falling into the deadly trap of fixing them both up. Let your friend and the ex work out their problems together. As a friend, your goal is to support your buddy, not fall in love with his/her ex.

Letter from a Reader


Turn Back Time

Turn Back Time

Well I’ve been receiving a couple of emails from our readers requesting for life’s advice from me. I’m not sure why, but limme humor you by answering this email from one of my blog readers:

” I’ve been going out with my new bf for almost 5 months, I was pretty promiscous but after meeting him, I stopped seeing other guys altogether. I had my annual physical exam with our company and I found out I have std. I have been loyal to my bf but it looks he hasn’t. What to do now. I need help” -lil boy blue

So…I’m not really sure how I can help you but here’s what I will do if I were in your shoe.

First, I’d probably see a doctor and get treated, fast! STD is curable so unless you have HIV, you’ll be okay. If you are planning on confronting him save it till you get better.

The question of who infected who is immaterial, you have to ask your bf to see a doctor too. If you two have been doing unprotected sex, chances are, he has STD as well.

If you both have been living dangerously, then either of you could have infected each other. What you two should do is to get treated. Hopefully, its not the serious kind. Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Falling Canopy Resumes for 2013


Hi guys!  I apologize for not updating this blog for so long.  I had a really busy year last year and now that things have normalized, well, let’s just say I’m back!

 

Thank you for continuously visiting the blog.  Rest assured I’ll be adding new posts regularly starting today.

 

It’s definitely an exciting year, so get ready for more crazy things!

 

The iPhone 5: much ado about nothing


the new iPhone

Tech giant Apple finally unveiled its latest smartphone offering and everyone agrees: too much hype!

Prior to its official launching, several leaks have already made it out to the internet.  The leaks proved to be true as the iPhone 5 turned out to be exactly as rumors say it would be:  bigger screen, improved processor and Facetime over cellular network.

Thing is, these features are no longer new.  High-end android and windows phone already have this as standard smartphone makeup, well all except Facetime.

For all the hype it generated, the new iPhone failed to impress.

Now more than ever, the genius that was Steve Jobs is sorely missed.  Tim Cook, the new Apple CEO knew he would never match, much more surpass Jobs.  This could well be the reason he opted to put more thought to the new iPod line than the iPhone.

Cook is a businessman, and he is good at it.  Jobs on the other hand is a visionary.  He built the Apple empire with the vision of offering more to consumers than just plain texting and calling.

Apple may still be able to sell millions of the new iPhone, but in a saturated smartphone market where innovation is key, it is also a very real possibility that the new iPhone could well be the end of Apple’s glory days.

 

 

Jolibee and the Tale of the Masquerading Chick-en


Jolibee’s chick-en thigh-let

Was on my way home from an overtime in the office when I deliberated on having late lunch at either Jolibee or McDonald’s. I was craving for 2-piece burger steak so Jolibee was the logical choice.

The nearest Jolibee from the office was the one in Alphaland but seeing that it was jam-packed I decided to take the short walk to Evangelista where another of their branch is located.

By the time I got there I was already beyond famished! Instead of ordering burger steak which was what I originally wanted, I decided to order their famous chickenjoy after one of the staff told me they have thigh part.

Imagine my surprise when my order was served! The damn chicken thigh was a thigh-let! It was tiny! I asked the lady from the counter if they have something bigger and she brushed me off with a resounding no!

Seething, I took my seat and ate, silently reminding myself to cross off Jolibee from my future fastfood option.

I ended up not finishing my food. I pitied the poor thing. I couldn’t force myself to eat that chick that masqueraded as a chicken. Bummed, I left Jolibee in a huff.

Lesson learned: stick to what you’ve originally craved for, least you end up with a chicken thighlet like I did.
