Filipina YouTube Star Makes Philippine Daily Inquirer

Congratulations to Filipina comedienne and YouTube DirectorHappy Slip” Christine on her interview in the Philippine Daily Inquirer today. YouTube is huge in the Philippines, so she has a big potential audience in her homeland.

Why I picked the name “Happy Slip” is not only because it is a funny phrase from the past… but it reflects what I’d like people to feel when they watch these videos. As if they “slip into happiness” while watching — cheerful fun moments to just laugh and enjoy. My dream is that people would have a smile on their face while watching these little productions and that it would brighten up their day.

It’s nice to see that we are in an era that you don’t have to wait for the big studios to give you a chance to shine. You can create your own opportunity, your own vehicle and dictate what you want to do and how you want to do it!

That last point is especially relevant, considering how waiting for big Philippine studios can get you killed. As I’ve said before, this is a time of transition: dying media chronicling rising media. I just recommended Christine for inclusion in The Fizz, a DirecTV show about videobloggers.

A Tale of Two Filipina Gamer-Blogger-Cosplayer Babes

While Level Up is irritating one gamer-blogger-cosplayer babe, ABS-CBN Interactive is pleasing another.

Jac Ting Lim

Jac Ting Lim, who’s cosplaying a character from Level Up’s RF Online at AME Matsuri today, can’t even get online in RF Online.

WTF?? Now I’m getting this message: “Not a subscribing user. would you like to subsribe?”

Whaddayamean I’m not a subscribing user?? I just bought PhP20 credits and topped up!

Gahd, and I needed so much to play right now to research for my cosplay tomorrow T_T

I honestly want to play this game and seriously level up and all, but all these fuck-ups are just not worth it. I won’t even start with how I never get problems like these when I was playing Guild Wars! I’m very frustrated.

I’m surprised she’s even cosplaying an RF Online character today, especially since Jac plays much better games like Guild Wars. Cosplay is content customer evangelism, and Jac’s clearly not a happy customer today.

Alodia Gosiengfiao

Alodia Gosiengfiao, on the other hand, is playing ABS-CBN Interactive’s Tantra Online, loving it, and blogging it.

Woopee! I’m currently playing Tantra Online and it’s really fun! The 10x Exp Rate and free gameplay is a big help! I got my new character to level 49 in one day(addict mode)..XD

I play at Manas Server and I have 2 characters:

Alodia in Tantra

Wizards : AlodiaAlmira and AlodiaKawaii(new character)
I wasn’t able to get the name “Alodia” because it was already taken by someone else, huhuhu!

*continues playing and makes the most out of the long weekend*

Her legions of rabid fanboys aside, Alodia has a lot of credibility as a gamer. Heck, now even a picky gamer like me might drop by Tantra just to see what’s going on there.

If you want market influencers to internalize and evangelize your services, make sure they can thoroughly enjoy your services.
