Fresh Like James Jirayu Tangsrisuk


ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

It’s been exactly six months today since the last time I posted here in my blog and guilty as charged (once again), without a word to my loyal readers & followers, I just took a pause and disappeared from the blogosphere.

And to sum up my lame “excuses”, let’s just say that my life has never been more exciting and thrilling and adventurous and colorful as before. Been through a lot: the good, the bad, the worst, the best. But the greatest part of it, is the fact that I was able to catch my breath and spent quality time with the real people (family & friends) who truly cared for me.

Of course there were a few travels to places I’ve never been to; the joy of meeting up new faces; the braving of my very demanding career at work; the learning of exploring new things and last but certainly not the least, it bought me sometime to challenge myself in search of that one thing that everyone I’m sure familiar with—love. And believe me when I say that I almost have it during my last December/January trip to Manila but because I have a “career” to tend to here in Bangkok, I have to bid goodbye to that “almost love of mine”. Though I’m still a work in progress in that area, the verdict of my six-month hiatus: PRICELESS!

So to start afresh and to make up with you guys, allow me to introduce to you the fresh face behind those photos above. And yes, he’s the hottest and fastest uprising star in Thailand right now that would give Nadech Kugimiya or Mario Maurer a run for their money—JAMES JIRAYU TANGSRISUK. . .

ImageAlthough at first you may think that James is only around 16 or 17, don’t get easily deceived…he’s already 19 years old turning 20 this September 19. I know. He’s really a fresh breath of air that you just want to inhale and can’t live without. With a towering height of 184 cm or 6 feet 1 inch tall, James started his career just very recently but he already have captured a hundred thousand hearts and more here in the Land of Smile.

A current talent of Channel 3 in Thailand, James was launched in his first starring role in a soap opera along with the other four male talents of the said network titled, “Suparburoot Jutathep” or “The Five Brothers” while all five of them was introduced altogether as, “The Gentleman” (it should be plural…I know, right?) superstars of Channel 3.

The soap opera is a five-part series telling stories of each sibling which was first aired in March of this year. The third part titled, “Khun Chai Puttipat”, is about a young doctor from a rich family set in a Thai colonial period which is of course played by non-other than James.Β  It was broadcasted from May 3 until 24 from Friday to Sunday and I myself was able to preview his soap when I switched channels from my remote during commercial breaks. I also chanced upon him being interviewed at TV Pool and of course, from his own mother network. Here are some of the promotional posters of their lakorn. . .

Cute as he is, here are some of his topless shots while bathing on the river from the said soap opera. . .

ImageImageAlthough he is the hottest item right now, his manager won’t let him do any product endorsements with very limited ramp modeling at the moment as his manager wants him to hone first his craft in acting on TV. Nevertheless, his popularity is getting bigger everyday!

Not just that, despite his rising fame, he remained the same old humble self. To prove that, here’s an interview of him from The Bangkok Post.

And why people do give a damn about him? Here’s another reason why you should convert your “faith” to James from your current Thai idols: he also has a big heart. Take a look at the pics below during a charity he did. I’m sure, your heart will melt. . .
ImageImageNow that I’ve introduced you to James Jirayu Tangsrisuk, to all my Pinoy and non-Thai readers around the globe…start googling his name now, “Like” his Facebook page and follow him on his Twitter and Instagram to get more info about him. Enjoy! πŸ˜‰

Cyndi Lauper Will Bring More FUN in the Philippines!


January 2012 Issue of PULP Magazine with my Patron A Ticket

The Girl Who Just Want To Have FUN is surely bringing MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES with her She Bop-ping comeback concert gig in Manila this March 17, 2012 at Smart Araneta Coliseum! Presented by PULP Live Productions, the Pop Empress is revisiting Filipinas after 23 years.

What a perfect Time After Time-ing because when the news spread out, I was in Manila for my holiday season vacay. To my excitement, there were times where I can’t literally sleep All Through The NightΒ thinking when the tickets will be ready. At Last! Tickets became available by sometime Dec. 23 according to the event promoter, Pulp Live so this piece of good news made a Hole In My Heart and immediately blogged about it!

However, due to my hectic schedule, I was only able to purchase 2 Patron A tickets for myself and my friend last Jan. 03 and made sure that our seats are located in the middle aisle even though the available nearest Row at that time was “F” but nevertheless, my I Drove All Nightrush to Smart Araneta Coliseum was worth it. But I do really suggest for those of you who haven’t purchased your tickets yet to go and buy now if you still want to get the nearest seats or otherwise you’ll scream, “It’s Good Enough For Me…yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!” a la Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough.

So see you all there in your True Colors and see What’s Going On that night and…never for a moment think of having a Change Of Heart as this event only happens once in a blue moon! You miss this, you’ll miss one-half of your life! Set Your Hearts and enjoy jammin’ Into The Nightlife with the legendary Ms. CYNDI LAUPER !!! ;P

As a die-hard Cynister, I also did a few rounds of inspection pertaining to promotional collateral of her concert. Here’s what I found. . .

It’s More Fun In Pinas!


Mister International 2011 Finalist and Mister Internet Popularity: Mister Philippines Fhrancis Oliver Lopez

Mabuhay! Guilty as charged, I know that I’ve been away for a month to be with my family + acquaint with my long-time no-see pals + reunite with my long lost classmates in elementary, high school and college + meet up new very interesting people + hook up with some + ironing a few business deals + travel to some FUNTABULOUS places in my own country that I’ve been dying to visit ever since + my super excitement & fascination with the upcoming concert of idol & pop diva Cyndi Lauper in Manila = this long neglected blog.

And do believe me if I say that as much as I want to share with you a lot of things especially my memorable EXPERIENCES that time, unfortunately, I’m Wi-Fi-less in Manila! My sis-in-law (as always) lend me her Smart Bro stick so I can go online but only after one time use, I couldn’t connect anymore. So pardon me. This long vackay only happens to me once in a blurblue moon.

Coincidentally during my stay, the Department of Tourism launched its new global campaign: “It’s More Fun In The Philippines.” And what a timing indeed it was. For the first time in my “no-need-to-mention-age-of-mine”, I was able to visit Tagaytay and sight the majestic Taal Volcano. I went with two elder sisters and my sis-in-law who drove for us the whole day. Leaving very wee hours from our home, we went for FUN “mountain climbing” at People’s Park In The Sky. Foggy and very chilly, ’twas a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here’s a sample souvenir pic with my sisters interpolating the newly launched infamous tagline, “It’s More Fun In The Philippines”. . .

Unsuccessful to view the volcano from this peak due to massive fog even though it’s already nearly twelve noon, we decided to chance it at Picnic Grove after our zesty lunch in the most famous and arguably most delicious bulalohan in Tagaytay. . .

With the help from the antique Pentax Porro-prism binoculars that we inherited from our Japanese grandmother, we were able to catch the close-up view of the crater. In fact, we even saw people boating and sailing around the lake using it. Once again, I incorporated the tagline in my souvenir photo with the World’s Smallest Volcano. . .

More fun blogging soon \\{“,}//
