It looks like… very… Rich! Hey guys what’s up, it’s EL! and I know what you’re wondering. What is my credit card number? No I’m just kidding. You’ll be wondering why I’m actually doing this thing right now. I’m vlogging for some reason, and it’s on a new channel. The actual reason is basically because, on EL’s Planet (our main channel) I can’t really do stuff like this anymore ’cause I used to. I feel like the topics right now on EL’s Planet are much deeper, and I feel like that’s what people on EL’s Planet want to see. These little vlogs that I used to do (back on EL’s Planet) aren’t really things that would “Bridge culture, and inspire minds” if you know what I mean. Today I’m doing something awesome… I’m going to BGC with Josh Decena, one of my really really close friends here ‘Cause he was a friend of mine back in Abu Dhabi /pa lang/. Then we moved back here in the Philippines for college. A lot of stuff happened and now we’re friends again. And then, I’m also meeting with 3 (I mean 4) Korean exchange students Once we do that we’ll be heading over to BGC and we’ll be doing random stuff ’cause they came from Korea and… they’re visiting so I wanted to give them a good time and show them places in Manila that Koreans don’t usually go to ‘Cause they usually go to… Malate. My reaction when I found out EXO’s Chen had a baby. Mabuhay. Introduce yourselves! – I’m making a vlog

It’s yummy! Okay, we can be friends! Hey, Josh is back! Josh~ say hi! Do you wanna try? No sweets. He’s on a diet, ’cause he’s gonna dance for a special thingy. So how are you, Josh? I’m tired. Stella~ I don’t like it~ really? Okay, now you can be friends. Okay, so both of us… I tried it already. *sounds of amusement from the audience* They’re all watching me. It still has banana (like the original non-pink/sprinkles version), and they said that it has Vanilla. I prefer the original one. But I think it’s good. Come on, try it! Just once! one. See~ he’s gonna do it. You don’t like it?! Yeah! We are friends! We can’t be friends. We can’t be friends anymore. Go. Yeah same, but that’s what I asked a while ago. If it was Strawberry. But they said no. Anyway, it’s Vanilla. Hello~ We’re now walking to SM Aura. So we can go to Okada, where did…? Stella’s always hiding! So, what do you think about BGC? I think it’s better than Ortigas. What’s it like? Hongdae! (Korean district in Seoul known for urban arts, indie music culture, clubs and entertainment.) Yeah~ Sinsadong! (Upscale Korean shopping and dining district in Seoul lined with Ginko trees) Gangnam (Posh Central Business District – Makati of South Korea)
Myeongdong (Popular shopping district loved by tourists in Seoul) What did you expect this morning? What did you think? I thought that it would be similar to Ortigas. So we almost missed the show, but it’s a good thing that we were able to reach it. What time did we leave? 7:30, and it was almost 30 minutes to get here (The Fountain show starts every hour and we got to see the 8:00 show) So we weren’t sure if we could make it in time. It’s a good thing we did! Okay, so we had a busy day today. We had to run everywhere. How’s the feeling? How was the experience? The fountain a while ago was very beautiful. I’m a little bit tired But it was so beautiful. I was worth it? Yeah~ Because we rushed here from BGC right? Today is so hot, but this water show is very beautiful. It removed your tiredness. I’m so tired but it’s very exciting. Because we saw beautiful roads/streets (in BGC), and the show (in Okada), and this hotel is very Charming. I’m very happy. Really? Yeah, yeah, yeah~ Because I had a lot of experience… Uhuh~ With you 💜 Thank you! We can be friends now! and then Josh! How was your experience today? I’m tired. ‘Cause you still had a show… ah not show. He had a…You taught in the studio or something? Where are we going? He had/taught a class. I thought you were gonna buy juice? Ah, Starbucks. and there’s a Jollibee here now. That’s surprising. Before it wasn’t here. Did you enjoy it? Yes. This is a very busy day, but we were able to see many things. But what did you learn today? About the Philippines, or Manila? Like did it change your views? Yeah! Why? ‘Cause… I thought Ortigas was the best city of the Philippines. But after I went here (and BGC as well)… It looks like… very… Rich! It looks very rich?! But before, what did you think the Philippines was? I only thought about the sea. It was more of a vacation place. yeah But it looks very much like a (metropolitan) city with high buildings. Oh okay! I think BGC is similar to the Korean city of Pangyo (New modern district) in Korea and this hotel, Okada, is similar with Macao. and it has a very beautiful (fountain) show. Yeah! I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thank you! Jiwon! Copy-paste nalang po! We’re finally going home! We hope you guys found it entertaining! They said hello! I hope you found the video interesting even if we really didn’t show much ’cause again, I don’t know how to vlog. Bye everyone! Bye~ see you!
