Namiss ko magpost ng medyo mahaba-haba, so pagbigyan niyo na ako
Comment ko sa ASAP ngayon, nakaka-inis. Ang dami ngang exposure ni Tin, pero not-so naman yung mga prods niya. Sana next time, kahit isang prod lang basta bongga naman, like yung last week. Ang ganda talaga ng prod niya na yun with the Star Power 4. Thank you pa din ASAP kasi daming spiels ni Tin kanina, at least nakita ko siya ng ilang beses
Not able to watch The Buzz, pero tomorrow papanoorin ko yun. Nice naman may quote na naman siya. Mga quotable quotes naman talaga oh. Hehehe!
I love her May Bukas Pa prod yesterday sa HYY. WOW! Ang galing niya talaga nun. Ang ganda ganda ng pagkakanta niya. Palakpak tenga kooo! Sayang pala talo sila kahapon, pero keri lang. Next time bawi na lang. At least fresh start ulit.
Grabe naman talaga ang pics ni Tin sa shoot ng movie nila ni Uge. Kakaloka ang itsura. Hoping na laughtrip ang movie pero at the same time may aral din. Mukha ngang about women empowerment ito. Exciting!
Sad din ako at hindi na Faces and Curves si Tin, pero God bless sa pagiging part ulit ng Belo Tin.
i think belo will give ate tin a special welcome kasi sa twitter may nagtanong na fan kung may pictorial din ba si ate tin for belo at ang sagot ni Meredith F. Alegado ay "SURPRISE!! but support ha!" let's wait and see.. siguro nga sanay lang talaga tayo kasi for how many years din siya sa F&C...w
Wow Belo na si Tin?
pa LR din, balik tambalan pala sina Zanjoe at Tin sa movie nila ni Uge...Honestly, like ko sila sa You Got Me.
Pero mas exciting ata yung with Kanto boys? Goodluck Tin!!! Godbless everyone.
Apparently 3 years na syang walang contract with F&C... Does this also mean Alex is in Belo na?! Either way I wish they'll take care of her the same way as F&C did!
Okay narin siguro na konti lang ang prod nya kasi grabe ang energy nya sa HYY! plus nag sho shoot pa sya ng movie diba? Sexy ni Tin in red! Whoo!

For better understanding:
Beyond Singapore, Japan has been the center of similar controversies for decades. In the 1980’s, the term “Japayuki” was coined to describe Filipinas bound for Japan under the pretext of housekeeping or honest entertainment work, only to be compelled to work as prostitutes in the thriving sex industry. They were hospitality girls. Derogatory as it was, many Filipinas bound for work in Japan were tagged Japayukis regardless of their kind of work.
In practice, Japayuki refers to Filipinas who worked, or are working, as cultural dancers, bar hostesses or entertainers in Japan – with a sternly negative connotation. It has also become Filipino slang often used to justify how one amassed a small fortune in a relatively short time, presumably while “working” or “entertaining” in Japan. For the few men who become entangled in this profession, the term specifically developed for them was “Hosto,” but it did not adapted as widely as the term Japayuki.
Regarding Tin's transfer to Belo, I actually liked it better. Its undeniable that Belo is the no. 1 Beauty clinic in the country. Which means, more exposure and better quality of ads. And yes, Tin was with Belo before, and now with Belo again. I remember that she thanked Dra. Belo a few years ago, for giving her a laptop.
Natutuwa din ako kay Tin sa The Buzz. Well informed sya dun sa Ethel issue. And nice quote! And I liked her white dress in ASAP.

Nakaka excite yung Movie ni Tin with Uge. and syempre,Na e-excite din ako sa Movie nya With Kanto Boys. Nakaka asar lang Parang may Ibang Fans na Humahadlang like "Bakit si Toni G? Dapat si Blah blah nalang" Meron pang "dapat si ano nalang,Siya kase ang Kanto Girl diba?" "dapat si ganito ganyan,Mas bagay,Mas maganda" Wala lang,Naaasar lang ako,Tanggapin nalang sana nila na si Toni G, na talaga haha.
Goodluck sa Movie ni Tin with Eugene! Riot talaga 'to. Ayoko mag Expect ng Sobra,Pero kase ang Director ay si Joey Reyes,For sure maganda yan. hehhee.
Noticed that the latest 2 Sundays of Uncensored have improved (i.e., no simultaneous talking). Re Ethel’s news, for example, Charlene provided the gist, Toni provided the background and more details of the story while KC gave her opinion. Even if, at times, I don't agree with Mr. Abunda because I think there were instances when he was subjective and too politically correct, I do respect his opinion.
Re the twitter episode, Toni mentioned that she only listens to people close to her. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. However, the people she knows only represent less than 1% of the viewing public. Wouldn’t she want to listen also to legitimate concerns of part of the 99% of her viewers minus the weeds (bashers)?
Last Saturday’s show was one of the best for me mainly because I enjoyed Toni’s singing of May Bukas Pa and the Happy Ka-Family championship complete with muses, bands, and cheerleaders. The pakwan game was the funniest.
If Toni’s character is a Japayuki / babaeng-bakla, does that mean she’s a prosti? If that’s the case, that’s an offbeat role for her which is good.

^ Regarding her opinion in The Buzz about the twitter thing, I think the bashers' stuck on her mind when she said about not listening to strangers. But I believe that she also consider the opinion online about her.
I think hindi naman prosti. Entertainer lang. Kaya lang kasi, there's a connotation about those who work even only as entertainers, that they also do that sort of thing (sell their body). But I think, Filipinos are more open now, that Japayukis are actually entertainers and not automatically equate to prostitutes.
Thanks for enlightening my blurry mind, Ms. Pruedish.
I thought I'm not counted. Otherwise, there's no point giving comments and suggestions. But even if Toni does not really want to listen to everyone else, I understand her reasons completely.
So, Japayuki is a general term pala for Filipino entertainers with a bad connotation. And how did you know all these? Hhmm...
More than likely, she's just a babaeng bakla entertainer with no fringe benefits for customers. With the recent turn of events in Japan, though, I wonder how the Japayukis are doing. Sorry, off topic na pala. On second thought, I wonder if there's going to be some changes in the script because of what's happening to Japan.
^ Haha dati kasi akong Japayuki! Chos! Joke lang. Nung bata kasi ako, kapag may dumadaan na babae na sobrang kapal ng make up, tapos revealing yung clothes and medyo vulgar magsalita, maririnig ko, sasabihin ng mga tao na Japayuki nga daw. So yea, people judge them as skank. So offensive nga kapag natatawag na Japayuki nung time na yun. Ngayon kasi, imo, medyo hindi na ganun ka-judgmental ang mga Pinoy about those who work in Japan. Siguro dahil madami na din ang nagwo-work abroad na mga Pinoy.
Lingid sa kaalaman ng marami, ang pagiging entertainer sa Japan ay isang malinis at marangal na trabaho. Ito ay binabayaran ng mga Hapon ng malaking halaga. Ang alam ng marami, kapag isa kang Japayuki ang trabaho mo ay magbenta ng aliw, ligaya at laman o seks. Ngunit ang hindi natin alam, ang trabaho lamang ng Japayuki sa Japan ay kumanta, sumayaw, magpatawa (standup comedy), makipag-usap sa mga panauhin, at magsilbi ng pagkain. Maaari din itong tumukoy sa mga Pinay na naghahanapbuhay bilang mga “hospitality girls” sa mga among Hapon. At maaari ding tumukoy sa mga kababayan nating naghahanapbuhay at naninirahan na sa Japan.
Parang hostess lang din yan e.
Hostess = female host
but some people call them (prostitutes), hostess.
Sideline mo yata eh. Don't worry, I understand.
Anyway, I heard this true story ages ago about a babaeng Pilipina who went to Japan. Years later, she came back fully made up, carrying a boombox (yeah, not Ipod) that loudly played a Japanese song for all the jeepney passengers to hear. You could just imagine the reaction of the passengers. I just thought it's very funny but it's true.
^ Haha yea. Iba kasi ang culture e, tapos naa-adopt ng ibang Pinoy. Kakatawa nga pero sa Japan, akala mo yung mga suot sa anime e hanggang dun lang kasi ang weird naman isuot, pero may lugar sa kanila na ganun. Si Gwen Stefani and Pink medyo ina-adopt minsan yung style ng Harajuku girls.
Anyway, basta excited nako sa Uge-Tin movie! Kaso parang ang tagal pa. Witty lines pls!
Bow ako sa 'yo, prue. So quick to research, and always adding links (evidence) to prove your point. Iba na talaga ang ... you know.
I love that Gwen Stefani song Harajuku girls although don't know the lyrics. Baka pwedeng gawing theme song ng Toni-Eugene movie. Speaking of .., I'm glad the movie title is not derived from a song's lyrics. Of course, most of us insist on witty dialogues, not slapstick. No batukan please. It's NOT funny.

^ Haha, both. Chos! Funny!
I add links, para hindi ako masisi.
I love Gwen! Hindi pwede e, kasi hindi naman Japayuki si Eugene hahaha! Tuwa ako kasi mukhang madami talagang scenes na si Eugene at Tin ang magkasama hahaha!
Yea, sana walang batukan. Tsaka ayaw ko din nung nakakatawa daw dahil sa exaggerated outfit, like magsuot ng kung ano-ano sa ulo.
Is it just me or am I hearing an echo? So quiet in this thread lately. Where are the older Tinsters? Are they still called Tinsters if they don't post at all? TGFanatic, PYorker, Tisay_Ako, la ah etc. where are you?
Oh I see (re Eugene's role). This movie would create greater impact if this is Eugene's first movie for 2011. I wonder how her latest movie did at the box office. Didn't hear much about it in terms of reviews and receipts.
Yeah, exag outfit is no longer funny, overused especially in ATP. What can you say about the supporting cast esp. the fiancee?
^ Well, Zanjoe and Tin have chem naman. I'm not really into their tandem but its okay. Its not a rom-com anyway. Its mainly an UgeTin movie and not ZanTin, so I'm fine with it. :P
Nawawala nga sila hahaha! Tahimik. Lurkers! Hmpf!
According to the press release, Who's that Girl had 60M for their 1st week gross. Not so good reviews on that one though, so I don't know the reliability of the reports released by Viva. Tsaka mahilig sa hype ang Viva. Wala pang report ang BOM.
I prefer Derek sana but I guess it's okay.
Anyway, Zanjoe is more good-looking these days and he looks mabait and gentleman so okay na rin. But I still insist on Papa P's guesting (as if it's going to happen). In our dreams!
^ Haha oo. In our dreams.
Anyway, since minor role naman yun, gusto ko sana si JM de Guzman, the moreno guy in My Amnesia Girl, kaya lang mukhang malakas ang manager ni Zanjoe e.
About Derek, pinapanood ko recently yung Ang Lalaking Nagmahal sa Akin (Tita Jo, thanks! Copied it last Sat.), kilig pa din sila hahaha!
