Going Jologs

Filed under: Doodles, Blabs and Rants — Tags: , , — didee @ 4:40 pm

On weeknights me and my housemates find ourselves glued in our living room. We have our dinner in front of the TV in our sala , carpeting our coffee table with place mats and topping them with hot rice and home cooked meal. You might ask what keeps us so enamored in this corner of our house… it’s a taste of home.

When we moved to our new place, we have two conditions that we set before we settled in. You might be thinking along the lines of : kitchen utensils, food on the fridge or king sized bed on each room; but your guess is a bit far from the truth. Before planting our pillars and taking hold of our new territory two items needs to be ticked in our checklist: Internet and Cable.

We have to have a good wireless internet running and the cable has to be connected. Simple eh? And what more, we made sure we have one channel that gives us an overflow of home spirit, The Filipino Channel.

Unlike our Home Cable subscription back at home where you get almost a hundred channels under your belt after you pay, agree and sign their terms and condition; here you have to choose from the sets of channels that you want to subscribe to. Entertainment, News, Sports, Movies.

These are grouped by categories, like the HBO set with a couple of HBO channels showing classic, block busters or just released movies. But it is different with our very own TFC, it is group consist of a single channel all on its own. Special Siopao.

It is this three letter channel, which brings a taste of home, that keeps us outside our rooms and puts us together in one place while chatting in-between and during the shows. It keeps us from being strangers housed under one roof. It keeps the dust off the connection that we have on each other.

Whenever I come home a little earlier than the usual, I turn on TV Patrol and listen to the latest news from our beloved Pinas. Even if majority of what we hear are not so good news, we still take it in , even if it feels like swallowing a bitter pill with all the controversies and negative issues that fills our ears.

Dinner usually starts with the so-so hosting of Cesar Montano on The Singing Bee [**insert pictures of dancing honey bees with their a little too tight on the chest costume**].

If I had joined, I would have been a millionaire already more than once, so says my housemates. And we would start to dream of where we will spend my “hard-earned” money in case that happens. LOL. Crazy dreamers we are.

Used dinner plates would stay unmoved and waiting to be taken to the kitchen sink, as we sat there and cheer Claudine’s plight in Iisa Pa Lamang. While one housemate would shrieked like a banshee in heat whenever Diether would down his shirt and show off his yummy abs. [** this housemate is not me, hint: R** ahaha]. Don’t you just love Claudine’s and Angelica’s outfits? After a strong exchange of dialogue, one can not help but notice their power dresses and claudine’s big boobs.Gaby is so much like Cristopher Reeves, but unfortunately his role bores us to death.

Before Iisa Pa Lamang we followed Lyca and Noah’s Underworld spin-off romance. LOBO made us cringe when Piolo became a wolf himself and searched Angel among a pack of white wolves. Eni mini may ni mo, Lyca Lyca is dat you? πŸ™‚ And whenever there is a shot of Dionne, I’d tell them “That’s my friend/idol Aileen’s Sister!!”. LOL.

Ligaw na Bulaklak would follow after, and this is our cue to clean the table and wash the dishes. This is our time to change the channel, check our emails, or have a toilet break. This is also when we catch up on how each other’s day went, updating each other on what’s new and what’s not.

We then enjoy a good laugh, really good laugh, while watching My Girl. This show is just hilarious and at the same time heart melting. Ahhh the feeling of being in love! Kim did a good job with her character as Jasmin, that I didn’t mind at all that the story is an adaptation of a Korean Novela of the same title. My Girl will be ending soon, and Dyosa will then keep us company as she search for her destiny on air, water and land.

And lastly, we watch the scholar’s journey in Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2. We play Simon each night, and cheer on our favorite scholar’s. More than once we found ourselves hurrying to get home on a Saturday night, just so we could watch PDA’s Gala Night performance. Is that jologs or what? Haha

So there you go, this is our Jolog‘s marathon on weeknights. Enjoying a doze of kajologan in the company of friends… i don’t really mind, not even a bit. I am , we are, Jologs by heart. And what’s funny is, we don’t usually do this when we were still in Cebu.

Enjoying a taste of jologs, what other people would call baduy, in this place far away from what’s familiar, makes this little corner a home away from home.



  1. hala nindot lagi standby sa inyong dinner table. lingaw kaayo ko sa imong jologs blog. pareha kaayo ta reaction inig kita ni Dionne – gwapa kaayo iya sister miga nako. mga fashion lagi dayon bantayan basta si claudine. hehehe

  6. wow.. that’s news.. you? jologs? hehe :D… others wouldn’t admit to that hehe

    but we do still have good shows that are fun to watch and MMK episodes which are truly heartbreaking, this is contrary to what some people say that filipino shows are hopeless.
