2020.06.08 23:38 DiDiOOOONARSÉ TAKES YOU ON THE POIGNANT JOURNEY OF LOVE WITH HIS UPCOMING EP “15/10”
The Filipino-Australian R&B singer possesses a distinct voice that will conquer a new decade of music one song at a time. The reality of love is the driving force behind Onarsé’s debut E.P. titled “15/10”. The 18 year old singer, songwriter and producer created his 6 track EP which is inspired d by modern R&B but also embraces and infuses different genres which powerfully attracts all music fans. From the heart-wrenching R&B soul ballad “Never Be Enough” to a haunting, yet alluring minimalistic Emo R&B in “Last Summer” It’s easy to appreciate how the influences of artists such as Frank Ocean and Lana Del Ray inspired this EP; however, his effortless versatility in fusing different musical elements, ability to create an aura that resonates with your mind and soul and his raw, distinct vocal colour is what allows Onarsé to create a world of his own. He wields a dreamy, buttery, yet mellifluous voice similar to The Weeknd and Michael jackson that is able to transcend you into the heights and depths of nostalgia over an ocean of 90’s inspired modern day R&B melodies infused with indie/alternative, soul, smooth funk and pop music; and just like a compass, he guides listeners through the bittersweet journey of chasing the one you love that could never be yours. Onarsé wrote all the songs in his EP by himself. Which highlights his maturity as a writer and undeniable ability to use the power of words to create an atmosphere in his music that is able to resonate to the hearts and personal experiences of listeners. The EP was written and recorded in Sydney, Australia in his bedroom studio; which took nearly 6 months to complete. “As a musician, it’s inevitable that I put my all into my music. I like to be involved with my creative process because essentially, my music is an extension of me as a person and it’s my way of communicating my life using not only words through my lyrics but also communicating emotions through my melodies and my voice that everyday conversations aren’t able to do.” says Onarsé. “The reason why the EP is titled “15/10” is because it’s actually my birth date and because when a baby is born, it’s surrounded by love and it’s given love effortlessly; but as we grow up, we often begin to drift away from the people who gave us love and search for a different kind of love that we haven’t felt before, a type of love that you want to share with somebody else that’s never been present in your life, who’s able to give you a sense of thrill and that’s the phase I was going through prior to creating the EP. I found somebody, but they couldn’t quite find themself; they weren’t ready to live their truth” he added. Although each songs vary in tone, each one is so distinctive that it emphasises what seems to be Onarsé’s signature sound. As you begin to descend down the EP, the “15/10” concept comes to a sentimental end that leaves listeners in awe, in sadness, in love and in pain; as if they were living in Onarsé’s songs.

2020.02.19 17:48 ViajandoConTimmyHoneymoon review – Dive trip to Philippines + Hong Kong layover
The purpose of this post is mainly for future reference as there is a relatively limited amount of information available for the Philippines, especially outside of the self-promotional blog posts (CLICK HERE TO BUY TRIP INSURANCE, etc), more so for those not exactly on a shoestring budget (not big spenders, but not backpacker-dorm-hostel only). I also sat on this for a while before posting, this trip happened in June of 2019. Wife and I just got back from two weeks in the Philippines to celebrate our honeymoon. It would be her first dive trip (recently Open Water certified) and it seemed like a great place as there is good diving and it is affordable. We were fortunate enough to get free airfare worth $2,600US thanks to churning, so we had a little bit more money to spend while there. We spent around $4,000US total while there not including airfare. Normally we are pretty frugal but we treated ourselves, it could have been done much more affordably if you pick cheap restaurants and take slower options to get places. We were there from the middle to the end of June, so the start of the rainy season. After a decent amount of research, we decided to fly into Manila to spend time with a family member who lives there, then to Coron, Palawan, travel to El Nido, Palawan, and fly out of there to Cebu, and go home out of Cebu on Cathay Pacific via Hong Kong for an 18-hour layover before our flight home in the USA. We have family an hour south of Manila who we had never visited, so the first leg of our trip was with them. Upon landing in Manila on a Sunday (weekday traffic is insane, fortunately we didn’t experience that) we drove to Lipa and spent some time there. Among the attractions we saw were: hot springs at Hidden Valley (expensive, almost $50 USD but absolutely gorgeous), a cockfight (vegetarian wife did not enjoy), Taal volcano (hire a banca boat to the island, then rode horses to the top which was unnecessary, could’ve hiked easily – has since erupted, not sure how that is going to affect the tourism!), scuba diving in Anilao (it was good, apparently better than El Nido but inferior to Coron and Cebu where we went. Also $70/each for one dive, so among the priciest. We also had to visit 5+ dive shops to find someone who had both a boat and a DM, since it’s low season everything must be planned), and one of the most memorable meals of the trip at Sulyap café in San Pablo city. The family member we were visiting married a Filipina woman, so we had dinner at her family’s house near Lipa which was a fantastic experience – good food, and after a couple beers we were introduced to “balot”, a boiled chicken egg at various stages of development. It was interesting, glad we tried. They are all over the Philippines, everywhere we went we saw vendors with the styrofoam coolers with “BALOT” written on the side. After a couple days, we flew out of Manila to Coron on Cebu Pacific. The flight was fine, minor delay, and we were able to take relatively large backpacks on board (even though we paid for checked baggage just in case, I like to not check if I don’t have to). It said maximum allowance 7kg or so for carry-on, but at no point was anything weighed. It helped that we got our tickets online and at the kiosks rather than at the counter, since you interact with fewer people. Our plan in Coron was to do some diving, explore the town, and relax. We booked two nights at the Two Seasons (best hotel in town, around $180 a night) as we planned on doing the “Ultimate Adventure Tour” with El Nido Paradise. This consisted of a 3-day, 2-night trip on a boat from Coron to El Nido, similar to Tao (the boutique and original provider, more expensive, but the dates didn’t line up for us), but unfortunately a week prior to our arrival, it was cancelled a week before we arrived in the Philippines since not enough people signed up. They did give us notice when we booked about two months prior, and regular updates, but we decided to adjust our plan once we knew for sure it wasn’t happening. Our first day in Coron we got an airport shuttle via the hotel (relatively expensive, but convenient.. about $12 US/person) we scouted dive options and went with Reggae Divers per other threads I read here. We also did laundry, there are places all over town and it’s cheap, 80 pesos per kg/minimum of 3 so $5. For dinner we had Lobster King, it was OK, expensive to get lobstecrab, but fresh. Second day in Coron was diving day, so we got up early to try to pick up laundry, but they weren’t open (despite their official hours being open at 7, but things are flexible in the Philippines). We dove with Morgane, a great French divemaster who we had to ourselves (benefit of low season). The dives consisted of two wrecks and a reef, but the wrecks were the most memorable. Japanese ships that were sunken in WWII, only a couple of them are accessible to Open Water, but super interesting. Visibility isn’t so great (especially during the rainy season) but it was a blast. The boat took us out with 2-3 other groups, but they were all varying levels and in different stages of certification, so they did their own thing while we had our own DM to ourselves. After the three dives we walked to the top of Mount Tapyas, where you get a great view of the city. It sure was hot, though! For dinner we walked to Sirenetta, this cool restaurant on stilts overlooking the water. Great for the sunset, slow service but tasty. The third day in Coron we got coffee at Coffee Kong (good spot) and tried to secure a boat to take us to Linapacan. Since the boat trip to El Nido (which would’ve been a highlight of the trip) didn’t work out, we wanted to do some sightseeing other than traditional island-hopping party boats that everyone seems to recommend. We heard of Linapacan via a friend, as a great spot to visit that is definitely off the beaten path (sees very few tourists) and is supposed to be gorgeous. During the high season it seems like it’s quite easy to get there, there are some speed boats that are affordable, but this time of year it was harder to find someone. We walked around the pier (per online posts) and talked to banca operators, but the boats were all kind of small and they wanted between 8,500 and 10,000 pesos, one way. You can get to/from El Nido more easily from Linapacan, but we ultimately decided it wasn’t worth it traveling for multiple hours on the open ocean on a vessel of unknown seaworthiness. Everyone we asked was surprised and said it was very far, too. But in the high season, we’d definitely give it a shot. With that in mind, given we had a flight from El Nido to Cebu in a couple days, we booked a trip on the Phimal fast ferry to El Nido the following morning. We bought tickets from a tour shop called Jessabel in front of Coffee Kong, but you can get them anywhere. Afterwards we transferred to our new hotel, Funny Lion, which as I mentioned earlier was great. We were unable to book a third night in Two Seasons, so we did Funny Lion. It cost about the same ($180 US) but would’ve been less had we booked earlier. The only downside is that since it’s a little bit out of town, tricycle drivers charge you a bit more for rides, and when you’re there coming into town, you get charged a lot more since they’re kind of your only option (in-town rides had been around 20-40 per person depending on mood of driver and how hard we haggled, while it was more to town from Funny Lion). We rented a scooter at the shop called Ethan down the street from the Funny Lion (500 pesos for 8 hours) and headed to Concepcion Falls. The ride was gorgeous, and we stopped and ate at a roadside eatery called Laura’s garden for lunch. It took a while (saw them make two motorcycle runs to buy more supplies, again, low season), but got the best chicken adobo of the trip. Checked out the falls, water was a little low, but it was a fun ride to get there. When we came back, it took 50 pesos of fuel to fill up, and returned the scooter. The lady tried to rip us off saying we only paid 500 and owed her 1,000 more for the remaining two days we had the bike, some yelling ensued, but ultimately my wife got her to realize we had only rented for a day rather than three (assuming we got confused with another white couple, or she was just trying to scam us) and we were on our way. Good thing I left my driver’s license rather than my passport, I have spare licenses and threatened to walk away since I can get a new one easily, not the same with a passport. The next day it was time to leave Coron to El Nido. The tricycle to the port was pricey, around 200 I think for two people, but we made it no problem. There was a short line for the ferry and we boarded promptly after a couple checkpoints along the way, and the ferry was pretty empty. Departed on time and arrived without any problems. As discussed online, they pump the AC, but I was comfortable in short sleeves and shorts, but wife was a little cold. Nothing miserable. Once we got to El Nido we stopped at Art Café for some food and to wait to get in to our AirBnB. We then rented a scooter (tons of shops in every town we visited offered scooter rentals) to head to Nacpan beach, another gorgeous ride. The last couple kilometers are on a dirt road so be careful. On the way back, we got a flat tire while getting absolutely POURED on, at least the rain was nice compared to the heat. We stopped at one store where a tricycle driver lent us a pump to try to fill the tire, but since it was tubeless I couldn’t figure out how to re-seat the bead. Pushed it down the road another half kilometer or so and found a tire shop, they took a look and somehow were able to inflate it no problem. After checking for leaks (didn’t find any, it must have been two people on a dirt road that caused the problem) we gave them 100 pesos for their trouble and were on our way. Multiple people stopped to ask if we needed help, it was quite a poetic moment getting poured on pushing this rental scooter through a dirt road in the Philippines. This is why we travel. For dinner we went to Happiness Place, a cool hippy-ish restaurant that has a ton of chickpea/hummus bowls. Very tasty. Then we got a massage across the road at Organic Spa, which was OK, they are all cheap though (around 450 for an hour.. so cheap compared to the US). We tipped generously, around 150, since it’s $3 to us but huge to them. For our next day in El Nido we booked an Island-Hopping tour from Art Café. We chose tour C since it has the most snorkeling, and we rather snorkel than lie on the beach. It cost 1,500 pesos, maybe a 100 peso premium over other providers, but Art Café has their own boat and they seemed like a good operation to support – big on eco-friendliness, claim to fund moors so boats don’t use anchors on tours (but our boat used the anchor a ton.. go figure). The island hopping was fun, the night we booked we were the only ones scheduled for the next day, and they said for the cost of one more person we would go out on our own. We were excited to have the boat to ourselves, but apparently they sell discounted tickets the day of so we had 5 or so other people with us. Not a problem. The spots we visited pretty busy but nothing compared to high season per what the guides said. My wife got a bad sunburn from snorkeling on her back, so be sure to re-apply after every time in the water! We bought reef-safe sunscreen in the US before visiting, but no one else was using any.. The coral that was snorkel-accessible in El Nido was mostly dead, it was very sad. We also grabbed a ton of trash, littering is a problem and it all ends up in the ocean. Unfortunately the accessible places get hit the hardest, as always. For dinner we went to Angels Wish seafood and got the seafood sisig, one of the best meals of the trip, it was absolutely incredible. Our next day in El Nido we decided to do some on-land adventures. We got breakfast at Athena Café which was pretty good. We did the canopy walk + dream catcher, which was a good way to spend an hour and a half or so. Good views of the city. It started to rain (our first day of rain so far) and got a pedicure at Sutra Spa, it was mediocre.. They only did nails, none of the foot soaking and rubbing, but as always it was cheap (approx $7 US). We had wraps at Holy Smoke for lunch (delicious, big) and hung out waiting for the rain to die down. We were recommended to try kwek-kwek after having balot, advertised as a more accessible egg-based street food. It consists of tempura-fried hard-boiled quail eggs and was delicious. We asked around and were told there were some food carts on the street next to the school, and we found some and they were great. We also got these Japanese cakes that were delicious as well. Once the rain died down (first real rain of the trip aside from a brief downpour in Manila, do not worry about traveling to Philippines in wet season in mid-late June) we rented another scooter and went to Cabañas beach. Hung out at Las Cabañas (a beachside restaurant, very nice bathrooms) and got a beer and went to the zip line. We walked up the hill to take the zip line (buy your ticket at the beach), it was fun, reviews were mixed but we had no problems. 500 pesos if you walk back on your own, 900 to take it both ways. The reviews all complained about the hike up, which I guess would be a problem if you were the average American office worker, but for some young fit people it was no problem. We then went back to Las Cabañas for more beer and to watch the sunset, it was gorgeous and relaxing. Unfortunately the clouds made for a lackluster sunset, so we decided to scoot home while it was still light out rather than drive at night. The power went out for the first time during our trip when we got to town, but 1,000 generators fire up and life goes on. We had dinner at Maa’s, which was tasty, but there was a big group ahead of us so it took a while to get food. Next morning in El Nido we got breakfast at Squidos, which was the most meh meal of the trip. We went to Art Café to get some souvenirs and I got a coffee and a green mango juice (delicious) while we waited until it was time to go to the airport for our flight to Cebu. I haggled a couple tricycle drivers and secured a ride for 150 pesos, and we were on our way. The airport is a private airport for AirSWIFT (the airline we flew on) that existed originally as a charter airline to take people to some resorts owned by the same company, but has since expanded to public use. Very small airport, security was very fast. They also claimed a 7kg carry-on limit, but when we booked the flight through Art Café prior to our trip we opted for 20kg of luggage each rather than get dinged while trying to board at a much higher rate. Side note, booking on their website was harder than using a travel agent like Art Café, and the luggage was cheaper, so we went with Art Café rather than the airline directly. Of course no one ever weighed our luggage and we carried on our rather large packs (I think a 65 liter was our bigger one) without any resistance and had an on-time flight to Cebu. Upon arrival to Cebu, our hotel for the night was in Moalboal. To get there we took a Grab (filipino Uber) to the South bus station, which cost 440 pesos, and I learned afterwards that a cab would’ve been cheaper, but it was convenient. At the station there are Ceres buses regularly from 4am-6pm that take you to Moalboal. There was a non-aircon (“ordinary”) bus ready to leave, but we opted to wait for aircon. I asked around and they said it would be an hour for the next bus, but 20 mins or so later a bus showed up. I believe what you need to look for is the route headed to Bato via Barili, but ask around, everyone was helpful. It cost 156 pesos per person and took 3.5 hours or so, depending on how many stops it makes (people get picked up and dropped off all over). Food vendors hopped on as you hit bigger towns, but there were no restroom breaks. The bus had wifi but I didn’t ask for the password. Upon arrival to Moalboal at night, we took a 200 peso tricycle to our hotel, Quo Vadis. We got dinner there (unremarkable) and hit the hay for diving the next day. Our first full day in Moalboal was spent diving. Breakfast was at the buffet at Quo Vadis (300 pesos, mediocre). We opted to go with the Quo Vadis dive shop where we stayed due mainly to convenience, but I read good things about Blue Abyss that is literally next door. Dives are ~$30 US each, which in my experience is very affordable. The managers at Quo Vadis were Brits, and the DMs were a mix of foreigners and locals. They told us the prior week they had maybe one group a day, but they were running a bunch of groups while we were there. We had an Australian DM, Lauren, to ourselves, and she was fantastic. We did some shore dives and one at Pescador Island, which was the top dive of the trip. Amazing visibility, SO many fish, it was perfect. The other two dives were on the shore, and one was at the sardines which was very cool. Dinner was at Ven’z, a delicious spot. The next day we planned on going canyoneering to Kawasan falls. This is a popular attraction where you hike/swim through a canyon and stop at some jumps along the way. Various outfitters offer packages (some up to $70 for transport and lunch), but we rented a scooter at Marjone’s (or something like that) close to where we stayed for 300 pesos for the day (cheapest scooter we rented). It was new, and the shop had good helmets, AND it had a full tank of gas which no other shop did. We rode the 45 mins to the base of the canyoneering and hired a guide (1500 each) and they provide helmet + life jacket. It was just us and the guide, so don’t get suckered into a group at that rate. We locked everything in the scooter at the outfitter and brought nothing with us but a ziploc with some money for lunch as there are some BBQ stands about halfway through. Wife is vegetarian so she got a banana but I got some skewers, it was cheap. The highest jump is 13m and it was terrifying but fun. I landed not exactly straight and bruised my ass pretty well, but it was a blast. Wife was too afraid for that one and another, but there’s an option for those who don’t want to jump. We wanted to avoid the crowds and apparently are the only people not obsessed with selfies (everyone confirmed multiple times, confused that we weren’t bringing a camera with us) so we moved pretty quickly. Our guide would skirt around big slow groups and we did the journey in around 3.5 hours. There’s a lot of walking at the beginning and end, and of course throughout, so you want to be in OK shape to do this. It was a lot of fun, big adrenaline rush on the jumps and the scenery is beautiful. The first group is allowed to begin at 6am, you’d have the place to yourself if you did that on a weekday (weekend gets packed with locals). For lunch in town afterwards we checked out Lantaw, it was ok, they didn’t have any seafood unless you ordered it the day before.. doesn’t make sense being on the coast and no one having seafood. Again, low season I’m assuming? We made a quick run into Moalboal town to check out the post office to buy stamps to send postcards to friends/family. 15 pesos gets you a postcard shipped internationally, FYI. We will see how long they take to arrive! (update: around a month, impressive.) We got a massage at Sparadise that was again just OK, but for ~$10 US you can’t complain. The place was clean and not sketchy at all. We got dinner at Ven’z since it was so good, and this time got the mango float for dessert which was stupendous. Not sure why it’s called a float, more like a parfait, but get it. Also if you are from an interesting country bring some currency and they’ll put it on the wall. Third day in Moalboal was another diving day, and our last, as we would be flying out the following day. Got in three dives, two of which were with Lauren and another with Jingle. The foreign DMs have to give priority to the local employees, so that’s why it switched around so much. The weather was way choppier than our first dive day, so when we made a second trip to Pescador island it was very different to our initial visit. The current was absurdly strong, and we were paired with other divers, so if anyone had trouble it held up the group. One diver in another group was a complete Neanderthal and left his secondary regulator dangling and got himself caught in some hard coral (after dragging it and ruining a bunch of other coral…), definitely seemed like someone the shops should blacklist. He had his advanced certification too, no clue how that happened. Side note: I have trouble clearing my ears (specifically while ascending, reverse block) so I took Sudafed before every dive.. it’s a no no apparently but I couldn’t survive without it. I took it up a notch and took Afrin too and had minimal ear issues, very helpful. Sudafed is not sold in the Philippines so bring your own. At the hotel we made friends with some of the guests and they recommended a woman who was walking around giving massages on the hotel grounds, so we booked her and one other person for a massage after dinner. Dinner was at a fish place in town, I think it was called V Lami. Pretty good, they had some fish on a table out front and we selected. They sold parrot fish which is sad, it’s a vital component of the ecosystem and helps coral grow, but apparently the Philippines have developed a taste for it which is not good, so don’t eat that if you’re there. When we came back the masseuses were waiting and we got the best massage of the trip! 500 pesos, on the beach chairs outside the room listening to the waves.. it was a perfect way to spend our last night. Our last day in the Philippines was very sad, we did not want to leave and return to reality at home. We got breakfast at Smooth, which had a small menu but pretty good food and coffee. We took a tricycle into town to catch our bus, this time it was 150, and waited at the bus stop maybe 5 minutes before an aircon bus rolled up. This time the bus was nearly empty (on a Saturday) and stopped way fewer times so we made great time. It made a CR (comfort room, go-to word for bathroom in the Philippines) stop once but did not have wifi. We hadn’t really had proper lechón so some quick research indicated a place called Ayer’s lechón in the mall by the south bus station, so we jumped in there for a quick bite (and one more halo halo). The malls have security guards and they look in everyone’s bags, but as foreigners we just got waved through. We had exactly 400 pesos in cash to our name and needed to get to the airport. Cab said it was around 400, and we made it for 380 so it was perfect. We hung out in the airport lounge (thanks, churning and the Priority Pass) to wait for our flight to Hong Kong. The final leg of our journey was 18 hours in Hong Kong. We arrived Saturday at 11pm and took the airport shuttle to Novotel Citygate where we booked a room. It was $170, and we got it mainly for the proximity to the airport so we could get some sleep quickly. There were cheap AirBnBs nearby but having to gamble on an unresponsive host wasn’t something we wanted to do with such limited time. They upgraded us for some reason to the nicest room there which usually goes for $300 a night and it was insane, huge bathroom with a big tub, very nice. The next morning we got up early, and searched for dim sum for breakfast. We settled on a spot called One Dim Sum, so we walked through the mall to the MTR stop (get cash, MTR ticket machines don’t take cards) into town. We arrived at the restaurant about 10 mins before it opened, and it had a short line, and by the time we were done 30 mins later the place was full. It was delicious, one of the best meals of the trip. Afterwards we walked through the flower and bird market nearby, and took a train to the ferry station to take the Star Ferry across the bay. That was a quick ride, very fun, and a great view of Hong Kong. We wanted to see the Big Buddha next, so we took the train back towards the airport. Research indicated that lines for the cable car get very long on weekends, so we decided to take the 23 bus up and the cable car down. The bus does not make change so break a big bill at the 7-eleven if you need to. We expected long lines at the bus but there were none. At the top we explored, and made our way to the cable car. We paid extra for the crystal car which has a glass bottom, it was approx $28 US each one way. Great views of the city, definitely worth doing. After that we picked up our luggage from the hotel and took the shuttle to the airport, and hung out at the lounge again for a shower before our flight. Showers were full or our of service so they gave us a voucher to Refreshhh which usually costs $30, but man the shower before the long flight (after a long sweaty day in Hong Kong) sure was refreshing. And after that we were on our way.. Sad to go back to work, but very glad we went. Flight was delayed to take off by an hour, marking the biggest hiccup in our entire journey. Miscellaneous trip notes for Philippines travelers: - ATMs charge a flat rate of 250 pesos, our debit card refunds intl fees (Charles Schwab) but it’s something to consider when withdrawing cash - For backup money, set up an account with Global Remit in case you need to send yourself money (easy and cheap), and leave instructions with a friend so they can wire you cash - Scooters do not have ABS brakes. Don’t be an idiot, wear a helmet. We saw so many tourists not wearing helmets. Not wearing long pants and gloves is bad enough, protect your noggin - You can buy local SIM cards to use your unlocked phone from the US. I got a SMART and a Globe SIM but ended up using SMART the majority of the time. For SMART, you dial *121# to access the menu to select packages, for Globe you dial *143#. SMART charges around $2/GB, it’s cheap - Cash is king, we didn’t use our credit cards outside of the big hotels - 1,000 peso notes are not accepted everywhere, break them every chance you get - Internet (especially at AirBnBs) is usually just a mobile hotspot, so it is pretty slow - It rained only a couple times during the rainy season when we were there (Mid June), definitely didn’t ruin the trip. Only one day did it rain the majority of the day - Moalboal is much drier than Palawan for rainy season visits, it seems like it’s dry there year round - Wife packed a bunch of cute things and never wore them. El Nido was the place where people dressed up the most - I brought one pair of shorts (Eddie Bauer First Ascent), 6 pairs of underwear, 5 synthetic shirts and a couple cotton but I tried never to wear the cotton due to the heat/humidity - For shoes, I got a pair of Tevas and a pair of topsiders. The Tevas gave me blisters on the first day in Coron so I wore topsiders until it healed. If you have a pair of sandals you can wear comfortably for long days with lots of walking definitely only bring those - Never at one point throughout the trip did we feel unsafe or like we were trying to get robbed (Except the motorcycle place Ethan in El Nido, and that may have been a misunderstanding) - Meals were very cheap, 500 pesos for two or so at an average spot. Beers are 50 pesos each. The food was not remarkable but not bad either - Vegetarian wife usually had options, although it helped that she ate seafood - Filtered water at restaurants is called service water and comes from big jugs and is free, no need to buy bottled water. El Nido and Coron were big on reducing plastic waste (no plastic straws, for example) including plastic water bottles

2020.02.16 17:38 IcamefromgodstrashAm I (16M) becoming a Maladaptive Daydreamer?
After writing all of this down, I realized that I just described my daydreams to a bunch of strangers who would probably get bored after 20 seconds reading this. I didn’t want to remove it because I think it would help with diagnosis and it would be a waste of an hour. I put this part so you don’t have to read the whole thing. Some of the “general” questions I think you might ask: 1. How long do I spend daydreaming? Prolly 1-2 hours 2. Is it interfering with my daily activities? Kinda. 3. Am I emotionally attached to the characters in my head? In a way, yeah. These are the bestest friends I’ve ever had. I guess I daydream because I love them a lot. Feel free to ask anymore questions if needed. Some Context: Some Roblox friends and I friended each other on Discord back in May of 2019 so we don’t have to deal with Roblox’s rules when it comes to chatting. We’ve become good friends despite living thousands of kilometres away from each other (though 2 of them know each other in real life and see each other often). We’ve done many voice calls and a few video calls. I’m a lonely person, so I think I am the most attached to the group out of all of them. If attachment had a size, then the others’ attachment to the group combined would probably be dwarfed by mine. At some point in time, I wondered, “What if I meet my online friends in real life?” Then I got sucked down the rabbit hole. I thought about where we would meet. Perhaps it would be in Australia, wherein two of them live. I could pay for me and my other friend’s flights and accommodation. Perhaps it would be in Japan. I’d pay for everyone’s expenses for the trip, rent a car and drive around Japan with them. Best case scenario perhaps, it would be in my country, the Philippines (probably the place wherein most of my daydreams take place). I’d pick them up from the airport in my car, then we’d drive from NAIA to my old family vacation house nearby Taal Volcano. There, we’d have a nice week touring the area, drinking some good beer, and just bonding in general. It would probably a great time. I’m a bit of a car guy, so in my spare time, I like reading and watching videos about cars so I’d know what car to get when I’m older. Really weird is that I take my Discord friends into consideration. Whenever I read about a certain car, I wonder if my friends’ luggage would fit in the back. Just some background for the next part: Sometime ago, when my mom, sister and I went abroad, we drove to the airport in an 8th Gen Civic. Only two of our large-sized luggage fit in the trunk of the Civic, which is roughly 12 cubic inches large, so when I think about how much space luggage would take up in the trunk of a car, I usually think 1 large luggage = ~6 cubic inches. How do I know this? Well, I do research at times to make sure that my daydreams are accurate. I watched some videos about how the Kia Stinger GT was great, and I am planning to buy one in the future because it’s a great car. I thought about how I’d pick them up from the airport in my Stinger and putting their luggage in the trunk. There’s 3 of them, and so that probably means 1 luggage per person. If the larger luggages are roughly 6 cubic inches large, then I probably wouldn’t have an issue putting their luggage in the 23.3 cubic inch trunk. I’d probably have an issue putting my stuff in the back though. Then after loading the car with luggage, we’d drive off to Tagaytay in a Kia Stinger. Perhaps then, I would be the only person in the area at the moment wig a Kia Stinger. Similar things happen when I think about other cars. Jeep Cherokee XJ, ‘97 Honda Accord with a luggage rack on the roof, old beat-up 80s era Benz I found in one of my dad’s lots. Maybe I’d tell them on Discord, “I’ll pick you up in a Benz.” then I’d come to them in that old thing. That would be funny. Though I am concerned with its trunk space. It probably won’t fit all of the stuff. When I read up about a car, I concern myself with its trunk space because it might not fit my friends’ luggage. When I read up on coupes like Miatas or MR2s, I imagine myself driving it late at night while the friend I’m closest with is looking out the window of my new Miata or MR2 SW20. Something bad happened, so I took her with me on my drive. We’d talk about the problem and become closer, then when we get back to where we’re staying, we’d share a hug or maybe even a kiss. Maybe we’d start dating then get married. Must be weird for a Filipino-Chinese guy to have an Australian wife. We would switch back and forth between living in the Philippines and Australia. The more I think about it, the weirder I feel, but I can’t help it. I don’t have any female friends in real life and so she’s the closest I have to a close female friend. Now I’m thinking about the responses. Perhaps they’ll ask about my nationality. I should stop. This is becoming too long. Am I becoming a maladaptive daydreamer?
2020.02.07 02:31 schwalbenschlagPrincess Diamond - Wuhan in a nutshell
So the news is the new Coronavirus is been detected on a cruise down in Japan. Just yesterday news outlets reported some 10 cases related to the "Diamond Princess". 171tests remain to show results to this point. https://10daily.com.au/news/world/a200207ejzda/more-than-60-people-on-infected-cruise-ship-diagnosed-with-coronavirus-20200207 (1) First publication: Early record; Ten infections. 5. February/6. February "By nationality, three of the 10 infected people in their 50s to 80s are Japanese, three are Chinese, two are Australians, one is an American and another is a Filipino, according to Carnival Japan Inc., the operator of the cruise ship Diamond Princess." https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/05/asia/coronavirus-cruise-quarantines-intl-hnk/index.html (2) Second publication: Rise of infections to 20 cases. 6. February (morning) Early morning Feb. 6. the toll rises to 20 infections, while other passengers will be quarantined in there booked rooms on the ship. "TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Another 10 people on a cruise ship quarantined in Yokohama have tested positive for a new coronavirus originating in China's Wuhan, the health ministry said Thursday, bringing the number of infected passengers on the vessel to 20." https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20200206/p2g/00m/0na/031000c (3) Third publication (6. February/ morning of 7.February) Recent news has it, over 40 Passengeres are infected. "Forty-one new cases of coronavirus have been found aboard the cruise ship Diamond Princess in Yokohama, Japanese media are reporting. The 41 are in addition to 20 previous cases detected in preceding days, the accounts said. Princess Cruises did not immediately reply to a request for confirmation and comment." https://www.latimes.com/travel/story/2020-02-05/coronavirus-cruise-passengers-diamond-princess The rate of infections raises to 61 cases. "It brings the total number of confirmed cases on the ship to 61. There are 3,700 people on board the ship, which is under a two-week quarantine period." https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-07/spike-of-coronavirus-cases-on-board-cruise-ship/11943302?pfmredir=sm (4) Symptoms regarded the infected. Pretty little is know about the condition of those infected to this date. One of the infected seems to be in critical condition as of now (Feb. 7) "The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare revealed that one of the new coronavirus-infected persons on a cruise ship berthing at Yokohama Port was seriously ill. One out of 10 people confirmed to be infected on the 5th is receiving treatment at a hospital in Kanagawa Prefecture. Detailed symptoms are not clear." *Google translation https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/videonews/ann?a=20200207-00000021-ann-soci (5) Conlusion So for me this ship is pretty much the laboratory on how the illness rises. Take perspective, that all people on board are quarantined to some degree. Basically there in there cell waiting 14 days to be released. Pretty much Wuhan on the water with security of food supply really. Was strikes most is, that people are catching the virus not knowing about it til many days later. This virus spreads like a motherfucker.Human to human transmission is by now well covered in scientific papers. As well as trough droplets with the possibility catching by fecal matter. So if the toll on infections rises, which is to be very likely, there is no doubt that we are just at the beginning of a real pandemic. This post will elaborate with time passing given the new information.
edit: Unfortunately Season 1-16 are no longer available for free. I will keep the blank formatting available in case other seasons become accessible. Hi guys, I was complaining yesterday about how hard it is to browse episodes on the website without having to click around. I decided to start an episode guide and would love it if anyone wants to help. Since I was listening to an episode from Season 17 when the frustration hit I figured I would start there. [S00E00](link) - Date description SEASON 17 S17E01 - Jan 13, 2017 - We kick off a new year of podcasts with a look odd false cognates, AI interlingua and the future of language. We then feature miraculous Russian mind reading OBEs, automatic writing in Australia and the growing Goat Yoga wave sweeping the world! S17E02 - Jan 20, 2017 Award winning investigative journalist Scott Carney returns to discuss his new book ‘What Doesn’t Kill Us’ and his training in the Wim Hof method. Carney examines Hof’s remarkable ability to control his body temperature in extreme cold and how his unique training has forced modern science to rethink our conscious control of our physiology. S17E03 - Jan 27, 2017 Artist Sean Bartock joins us to discuss his memoirs of alien abductions, native spirits, and high strangeness from his book 'Flashbacks'. Bartock believes he had experienced multiple abductions since his childhood, but with the memories remaining mostly hidden, it would take a life change in his early 40s and a series of strange encounters to unlock the true nature of his experiences. S17E04 - Feb 3, 2017 This week UFO researcher Paul Stonehill brings us his latest research into Russian USOs, strange cases from secret soviet files and the mysterious Matua island. We then feature new research on children who remember past lives and curious cases of xenoglossy from around the world. S17E05 - Feb 10, 2017 This week we discover one of history's strangest cases of communication through time with the mystery of the 1985 Dodleston messages. In 1984, an Economics teacher living in the small rural village of Dodleston found he had the opportunity to communicate with someone from the past, when he was thrust into a strange link that tied him across centuries with a past inhabitant of his home via an early model personal computer and it’s word processing software EDWORD. Both accused the other of trickery, poltergeist activity, witchcraft and devilry, but eventually, a bond between the two was formed. Cross-century communications are never easy, however, especially when the future gets involved. S17E06 - Feb 17, 2017 Award winning Australian author Kate Grenville joins us in the studio this week to discuss her new book The Case Against Fragrance and the potential dangers of artificial scent. Prompted by her own adverse reaction to the artificial fragrances around us, Grenville’s research reveals the power of the fragrance industry and the greater impact of chemicals in our environment. S17E07 - Feb 24, 2017 Bikini clad spectres and tree hopping humanoids sets the tone of weirdness for this episode as we eventually wind up deciphering occult symbology in our nation’s capital. We then peel back the layers of the world’s “Holy Madmen” and find a dangerous line walked between saintliness and depravity. S17E08 - Mar 3, 2017 German author Nick Ohler joins us this week to discuss his ground breaking bestseller ‘Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany’. Ohler’s research details the pervasive use of methamphetamines by the entire Third Reich and how Hitler’s private physician changed the course of the war with his injected cocktails of stimulants. We then reveal psychotronic mind control devices and the last ditch attempts to save the crumbling Soviet Union with mass broadcast hypnosis. S17E09 - Mar 10, 2017 After our team of analysts takes on the latest Wiki leaks 'Vault 7' release we turn to new time-slip experiences involving future cities and New Orleans bordellos. We then cover perhaps the most chilling of all MU topics... the dreaded 'Haunted Honky Tonk Piano' and in our Plus+ extension we feature the bizarre Tujunga Canyon encounters and how Bigfoot lost his grapes S17E10 - Mar 18, 2017 After an eventful trip to the Theosophical library we return with stories of "Oriental Wisdom" and tall tales from one Alexander Cannon that ultimately lead us to more Nazi WWII conspiracy and intrigue. In our Plus+ extension we then investigate spectral encounters with animal spirits, ghost doggos, and a saucy scandal featuring a Russian underwear model and a Racoon. S17E11 - Mar 24, 2017 Japanese "Forest Bathing" and getting high on hinoki feature this week as we look at the 'The Nature Fix' and the disease fighting, health enhancing benefits of our natural environments. We then examine 19th century cases of strange abductions from Japan that bizarrely mirror David Paulides' Missing 411 research and Aaron unwraps a banking conspiracy involving global elites and the sinking of the Titanic. S17E12 - Mar 31, 2017 This week we peel back the occult layers to investigate the Merovingian bloodline, Rennes-le-Château, and Ouija board sessions with antediluvian God-Kings of old. We then share the true horror of history’s worst plagues and the Tantra of Tachikawa-ryu S17E13 - Apr 7, 2017 This week we are joined by author and investigative journalist Leslie Kean to discuss her new book Surviving Death. Kean, well known for her New York Times best seller ‘UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record’, reveals stunning and varied evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death and also shares her direct experience of inexplicable phenomena – that had life-changing results. S17E14 - Apr 14, 2017 Reports of people disappearing in forests and national parks across the world continue with David Paulides’ latest: Missing 411 – Hunters. We review the strangest cases and again try to make sense of the mystery. Our Plus+ extension then features the new book from Cody Cassidy and Paul Doherty ‘And Then You’re Dead’, answering important questions like “What would happen if I stuck my hand in the large hadron collider?” S17E15 - Apr 21, 2017 This week we take a detour into the dark world of terror sponsored insider-trading, financial warfare, and Wall St.’s AI “Manhattan Project”. Along the way we discover more on the fractal nature of reality and dig up some doubloons, before our kitchen is invaded by a clever squatch. S17E16 - Apr 28, 2017 Missing 411 suspects get lined up for this episode as we look at the patterns of strange activity that bind them together. The Australian Yowie returns in a very vocal way along with insane tales of Orb-nappings from the Blue Mountains.

2019.12.17 11:48 StolenExitSign31 [M4F] Australia/Anywhere - Time to look for that special someone to be with in 2020 and beyond
Think it’s reached that point in my life where I need to be serious about my career direction, relationships and myself. It’s been years since I last went on a date, even asking someone out on a date. It’s time to get myself out there again. Since I dread Tinder, I decided to use ForeverAloneDating so...yay? Of course, it means starting out chatting on here or whatever social media is comfortable with you. I’m pretty easy with where you want to chat. I’d prefer to meet up with someone in Australia, in particular in Victoria but am open to other states in Australia. Just have to rely on Skype/Whatsapp/Snapchat/whatever for the time being. If you’re outside of Australia, it’ll be difficult to get a relationship going if we do hit it off. But i can make it work if we hit it off well. After all, my brother dated his now wife for years after only seeing her in person once-twice a year with him flying over to her and relied on Skype for contact. So some things about me: Looking into doing my post grad studies in Psychology. I finished my undergrad couple years ago and instead of going straight into post grad, I looked into other areas of interest that I considered going into such as Education. I have a fair amount of recipes that I can cook up. I can cook meals to cater for vegetarians and vegans. It's reached a point where mum writes down recipes that I cook up whenever I come visit. Did my first Shepherds Pie a while back and also Cottage Pie. Both were liked by former housemates Former basketball player with a fair amount of awards. The contrast between current me and basketball teen me is very noticeable. Although, 2020 is the year that I plan to get off my butt, be more active and do some exercise. I've played a good amount of video games in my lifetime. I tend to prefer the more old school type of games. Currently getting into Teamfight Tactics and trying to climb the ranks there. My taste is music can vary on the day and the many types of genre that I like is quite a lot and is not an understatement. Half-Filipino, Half-Australian. More Australian than Filipino in terms of how I talk. Around 6'0" tall. So that's pretty much me in a nutshell. It was a tight squeeze but I was able to fit into that nutshell. But probably time for me to get out of there. If what I've written is interesting to you or you're just someone looking for a conversation or someone to send your worst puns to, feel free to send a message. Looking forward to hearing from you!

2019.10.27 15:31 sextortionhope⚠️I NEVER thought it would happen to me - IT privacy guru (26M) sextortion & catfish victim after using dating apps for 5 years and how I dealt with it. :(
Hey guys, So I didn't know where or how to best post this for about a week now (I felt like a new reddit account for this content added a layer of protection and comfort for me), but I figured it can do WAY more good being out there on the line. (The Internship plug). I read a lot on how (especially young) people suicide from these events. I was quite lucky my footage was quite short and lowly lit. (It was never published publicly as far as I'm aware, it was just threatened to). If you can relate I would feel really more comforted to hear your stories and thoughts too. I know I feel so stupid after knowing it was a catfish and giving away my personal email address + footage (I never heard of Sextortion before it happened to me, I had heard of catfishing but thought it was a thing troll did but not to this criminal extent - I've had friends and dates say they've been catfished in-person but never online like this, I feel quite ashamed talking about it with people I know, I haven't told anyone I know about it but rather just been suggesting to enhance online privacy), but you have to understand when you're in a lonely place, somewhat depressed and you match with a warm person, things can go lopsided very quickly! That's the part I wasn't honestly expecting :( So last week I was viciously sextorted after being catfished online on OkCupid via Google Hangouts/Facebook. I had honestly never been catfished to this extent and I'm generally utmost careful about these things. Some points to consider leading up to the online sextortion:
For one, their English spelling and grammar was WAY off; there were spaces after like every comma, so I instantly knew something was up but still want to see how far I could go with it. I just thought maybe her English was just that rough being seemingly from the Phillipines and all. (I was pretty alone that night too and just needed someone to chat to).
She claimed to be visiting from the Philippines and staying locally with her family in my city. I kind of wanted to believe it, she was being very prompt with her answers, so the conversation seemed to flow for one. (Usually spammers/scammers don't flow in conversation but this one oddly did). - I've banned numerous scammefake accounts with abrupt flow in conversation or just blurry/pixelated photos.
Her photos seemed genuine and a lot, but honestly, the photos were just stolen in hindsight. (Identity Theft is another big issue surrounding giving up too much information in online dating profiles, including too many photos or Instagram profile attachments.
Her name was really weird, "Andeng" from OkCupid (OkCupid banned the account after I contacted OkCupid Support, although OkCupid was not willing to release the email address associated with the Hangouts account which was only provided in the chat, which the attacker blocked me on soon after the attack). But her Hangouts name was "andrea santos" (I have banned it via reporting to Google and eSafety Australian Government body esafety.gov.au/image-based-abuse/), so I did a quick Facebook search on andrea santos and found a girl with the same name living in my local city (Probably part of the attacker's stolen identity or a coincidence. This seemingly built more trust/confidence in me talking to a genuine person. I further put my distrust aside in speaking to this fking random.
I stupidly used one of my personal email accounts for Google Hangouts I don't use as much these days, I usually wouldn't have used my personal email address which contained my full name. I even thought about using my unidentifiable one, but it seemed like this girl was sort of real based on my points, albeit thin points above, hence why I felt like I should have used my personal email address. + It was already signed into my Google Hangouts app.
I subconsciously forgot OkCupid + Google Hangouts could be used on the desktop site (my stumble) - It never crossed my mind until the attacker sent me a screenshot from their desktop PC. I hadn't really used Hangouts or OKCupid much apart from their apps. This allows the attacker to easily show fake live stream web cam footage + record you with ease.
The attacker didn't get much of me in the video; at most it as a short video < a minute, and didn't show my face in full while doing it. It was also a dimly lit environment but they did ask throughout the video to show my face on cam and kiss it while showing a girl playing with herself on their end of the live cam which was a fake stream. I had my hesitations throughout it though being a self-conscious and private guy. The attacker kept asking me to using my selfie cam instead of my rear camera, I thought that was odd, but I was in a daze at the time, so I did a bit, but luckily I tried not to show my face in the same frame as my D as much. Thank god the light was behind my head and not in front of it or a downlight which would have lit the room up a lot more. I wish Google did more to track these scammers (but if they're using a VPN & internet cafe it could be next to impossible to trace back, maybe the FBI has some tools or this other international internet crime fighting body I saw, Internet Crime Complaint Center https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx, we also have DFAT here too), these attackers are literally killing people while being virtually untraceable. It's super sad. It really has made me backflip on trusting anyone online. I've been using Google advanced search + searching popular porn sites for my name, but so far nothing has come up with some relief. I just don't like being constantly on edge. I have setup Google Keyword alerts too. My recorded video was a particular length as well which could help aid in spotting it on search engines if it ever does surface. Seems like these scammers just move onto their next target if they can't get any money. I've read stories of young people suiciding after this. I guess my case was quite lucky. My internet dropped out as well and I had a lowly lit room (the light was behind the back of my head which made my face appear dark) which was really lucky because I usually would have went to a brighter room, the bathroom, but for some reason I didn't since it was taken. Thank god because the bathroom is waay more lit with a downlight and would have showed my face MUCH more clearly. I was lucky their recording was only < a minute. (according to the screenshot they sent from their Facebook account of the uploaded video set to an only me privacy setting). Probably not worth uploading for them to other sites. Anyone had this case before? The eSafety organisation said this is quite common. Even better if OkCupid and Google could track the attacker's IP address to geolocate them via which ever ISP the attacker is using to use OkCupid / Google Hangouts; provided the attacker is not using some kind of VPN. (Which they probably are if they're this organised in a scripted cybercrime organisation, although I didn't see any VPN software on the attacker's PC through the screenshot but it looked like an internet cafe computer - fresh of no bloated software; but VPN tech could also be applied at the routemodem level too. Potentially Google has a better chance of tracking the attacker's IP address down and contacting the relevant ISP in the Phillipines about this mischievous Google account's real user. OkCupid may have auto-logged the attacker's IP address, if they even do that. Again, Google needs the Gmail address associated with the attacker which I don't have as explained in my previous email. https://www.wikihow.com/Report-a-Gmail-Account Official Google Gmail Abuse Report page: https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse (I submitted feedback to Google that Hangouts needs better warnings in place similar to G Suite when you try to email someone out of your organisation). I regret having used my personal Hangouts email account, usually I don't for strangers but this one time, she seemed real for the Facebook search cross check I did (I never added her on FB though), but it was a totally different girl with the same name, just lived in Sydney too. The attackers are getting smarter at this or maybe it was by chance the same named girl was also on FB in my local city. Any how, after this incident I have definitely clamped down on online privacy a WHOLE lot more. I've set my Instagram, Twitter and parts of LinkedIn to private as well as changed a lot of my content on FB to friends only. Now I need to clean out my friends list. I found a few good links here: https://www.esafety.gov.au/women/being-social/online-dating/dating-apps-and-websites https://www.esafety.gov.au/women/being-social/social-media/social-media-safety-tips I read last night that Facebook has a tool where you can submit images to them to pre-screen obscene images via Machine Learning as the uploader uploads them. https://www.facebook.com/safety/notwithoutmyconsent/tools (mentions eSafety as well). Luckily before this happened I had my Facebook's friend’s list visibility list set to only me. I’ve never made it public, at most, temporarily friends only. But 'only me' is your best bet, I mean, do you really know everyone you’ve added on Facebook? The attacker started browsing tags of people in my public photos and threatened to send copies of the unknowingly recorded video to them. They seemed to have uploaded it to their own fake FB profile with visibility to set to 'only me' and then changed their profile's name to my full name. I quickly reported the profile and it was removed within a few minutes. Facebook also has a team of people monitoring for explicit content in the background any way if you never report. There's even an FB threats reporting tool if you happen to have some of the media. https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/567360146613371 I was never shown the video, just screenshots. It seems like the attacker left me alone literally the moment I stopped contacting them over Hangouts. It definitely felt like a criminal syndicate organisations running in the Phillipines (their Hangouts chat was in Philippino language), noobs. Also contained notepads of their copy and pasted transcripts of what to say to victims. :( My wish is that Google or OkCupid worked with FBI/Interpol to track down these bastards. People literally kill themselves over this. https://www.thedailybeast.com/sextortion-killed-their-son-cops-looked-the-other-way https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/prosecutors-bid-extradite-filipino-man-7394580 https://www.scmp.com/magazines/post-magazine/long-reads/article/2069492/sextortion-lies-and-videotape-philippine https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6978369/facebook-scammers-posing-as-beautiful-women-are-conning-men-into-sending-sex-photos-before-blackmailing-them-for-thousands-of-pounds/ Here are some tips I did:
Changed my FB username and profile name about a day after the attack. (It didn’t seem like much was going to happen from the sextortion side, but I just didn’t want to leave the door open for anything else to happen like Stolen Identity etc).
Made my Instagram & Twitter accounts private for a few days, changed my instagram handle too. Read up on stolen identities too. My Instagram is still private with a new username.
Changed my Google Hangouts name a bit. (Pretty sure blocked contacts can't see your email address, just Hangouts name, once the account is removed, they can't access their Google account).
Added phone 2FA authentication for my affected personal gmail account.
I set all my profile and cover photos to friends only, and removed feature photos, removed a lot of about me info like city I lived, social media links. I only left my bio, websites and university there once I was sure my new name provided some level of cover. My profile photo is a distant shot to prevent stolen identity.
Used my second FB account and a newly created third account to search my name “Full name” and “fullname” in FB search to see what content was actually still coming up and linking to my newly named FB profile - a lot of stuff since I liked posting publicly before and I found FB search actually reads text inside images, so lots of screenshots of my name were popping up from the past.
Reported the attacker on Google Hangouts and the dating app (OkCupid).
Kept the attacker’s chat logs on Hangout (they unmatched me on OkCupid soon after the attack).
Created Google keyword alerts for my name and set it to As it happens, and set one for video as well. I also knew the video duration in this case from a screenshot the Attacker sent, I set a keyword for that duration time as well, e.g. 0:28.
Deleted all personally identifiable info, removed instagram attachment and even closeup shots of my face on dating apps (in fear of stolen identities on dating apps). I later added a few closeup shots (maybe 3-4 per app), but I removed a decent amount of photos. Some apps used to have 8-10 photos of me.
Reported it to my Government’s Cyber Security organisation
Searched Google and porn sites for my name or catfish and the dating app’s name, thankfully, nothing.
2019.10.01 04:28 StoryofITBest of Aznidentity - Week of 9/29/2019 - Chanel Miller Comes Forward and Claims Asian Heritage,
GOAL: The mod team notice a lot of info in posts get lost through time, so we're going to try to archive the best discussions and topics. HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE: What was the best comment or posts you saw during this week? Post the link and the reason why you thought it was insightful! Chanel Miller comes out publicly and reclaims her name. There was a lot of chatter about Chanel Miller recently (rightly so). Different parts of the internet talked about the incident, so I wanted a collection of posts/feeds about Miller reclaiming her name, and recognizing her asian heritage.
A Black Male Describes His Experiences with Asians vs White people [u/abathingtj] - Link to post Anyways, I'm getting tired of seeing all the white racism (which they swear isn't racism by using bullshit articles or revisionist history or you know just good ol fashion stereotypes) towards Asians on reddits basically classifying literally all of them (especially Japanese and Koreans I've noticed) as racists towards anyone besides their own ethnicity and far-right ultra-nationalists. Other POC do this too by the way, but it's mostly white people who do this bullshit, and I hate it. Other Good Posts - In no particular order
