An Apple a Day on ABS-CBN "Upload"

I dozed off after watching a few segments of "Upload" on ABS-CBN last night since I was quite tired from the trip to Tagaytay yesterday. I was quite curious about the show since I was contacted earlier this month by ABS-CBN News, they wanted to interview me about a video I uploaded in my Youtube channel. I've been terribly shy about getting interviewed and have been shying away from it for more than 2 years now. 

Anyway, I was awakened by a call (and loads of text messages) at around 11:30 p.m.. Sweetie said that the spoof of the McDo TVC we did a few months ago was shown in the feature. I was mortified! Among all the videos I have online, it's the one video that I've wanted to delete for many reasons.  (Well this video was directed by my bestfriend, I edited it).

I dunno though if I should be happy or not about my video getting shown on TV. I feel embarrassed. I'm not mad that it was shown on TV (they could've told me though since they already contacted me, grrrr!), I'm just really embarrassed since I wasn't ready for it. My friends said that it was okay and quite funny and that the video was clear. Right. And one of my friends said that he watched it via TFC. 


Yeah, yeah, I'll probably get over it after a few days. 

But until then I think I'm going to bury my head first like an ostrich. 


  1. Hello Aileen, I have subscribed to your blog for months now and I can't find an option to "follow" you like other blogspots do. Anyhow, good job on your blog updates, awards, interviews, etc. I got disoriented on this mga puna, reaksyon at etiketa na ito. LOL! Hope you're having a great time in Manila.

  4. @fabulous pinay thank you for reading my blog and dropping a note. I've added the "Follow this blog" gadget so you won't have a hard time now =)

    @abbie Hi Abbie! You too! OMG!

  5. hehe! We're the same! I've been also shy about getting interviewed. ABS-CBN news researcher calls me several times and then I refused their calls kasi nga ayoko mgpa-interview. But in the end pumayag naman ako. We're really grateful that out of the numerous numbers of pinoy bloggers all over the country, we're part of their "high-tech" yearend special. CHeers! =)

  6. @dkcandia Shy pa rin ako talaga eh hehehe. Okay na ako na ganito lang :D
