-Good morning Bangkok! :-) Didn’t waste any time, went shopping right after I checked in last night. More shopping today!!
Would u get ur hair done in a salon that looked like this? Haha. It’s the best one in Bkk, been here before!
Exotic Food called LOT DUAN in Bangkok. It’s cocoons!!! Eeeek. I can’t eat it. CANNOT!
The Bangkok night life gives me the creeps. Too many boobies.
Last day in Bangkok- last few shopping spots & i’m flying back. Missing the Pacquiao fight :( BOO! Will not log on ’till I watch!


Vicki Belo, cosmetic surgeon of the celebrities:
Mommy diönisia is unconscious. . I don t know if its cuz she prayed too much or she s having an attack
She has not regained consciousness. Please pray for mommy d.
Mommy d awake . Just feeling weak . Kept here in the hospital for more tests. Thanks for prayers
Mommy dionisia has a chronic heart condition in which her heart stops beating for awhile. Thats why she usually doesn t watch Manny s fight s because she gets too stressed. Her doctor said she could watch this time but it was too much for her to watch her son get hit. Such is a mothers love for her son .
- Mommy had a ct scan because she felt throbbing pain on right side of her head. She was feeling very weak until a suprise visitor appeared to cheer her up. Mr derek ramsay. Her eyes lit up and gave a big smile
- Manny and jinkee were so sweet. Manny was quite sore in the ribs after the fight. His hands were swollen so jinkee was feeding him. They seemed oblivious to the crowd around them

Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago on falling  down onstage in Turkey:
- Don’t lose your confidence if you slip Be grateful for a pleasant trip And pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again...
- Video of me falling on Istanbul stage:

Carlos Celdran, performance artist, activist, and Forbes Magazine’s Names You Need to Know in 2011 nominee, on the Philippines’ new tourism slogan:
- does NOT like the new "Pilipinas Kay Ganda" DOT slogan for tourism. It would work for local Filipinos but um. foreign tourists will say "What the **** does that mean?" HELLO???!! Let’s all #HelpDOT come up with a better slogan before it’s too late. Seriously, Secretary Lim. WTH?
- will be going to the DOT bloggers launch later on at 6PM to give them a piece of his mind about the lame new slogan "Pilipinas Kay Ganda". I certainly hope other bloggers do the same.
- is recommending his own slogan: "The Philippines. It’s all about you."
My defense: This slogan highlights our friendliness/openness/graciousness.
This slogan emphasizes that Filipinos are a diaspora and in every country of the world.
This slogan shows that there is a little something for every taste here in these islands.
The local market version: "Pilipinas Para sa ’yo"
What’s your suggestion?


Gabe Mercado, comedian:
- A great Philippine Tourism ad? You’d have to go back to the mid 80’s.
