There are days when my hormones go super crazy for like a week (it only happens like twice or thrice a year). I don’t feel like doing anything and my mood is terrible. What I do is I just stay in my room.
When I was on my self imposed hiatus last week I did nothing but watch videos on YouTube all day long. It was very calming and it relaxed me.
While on hiatus I discovered a few channels that I got hooked on. Itsjudyslife, Bretman Rock and PatrickStarr. They are Filipinos from the U.S. Judy is from Seattle (I think) (I’m not sure) , Bretman is from Hawaii (I am sure) and I don’t know where Patrick is actually based. Either L.A or Miami.
Some of you must have heard about her ’cause she’s already famous in social media She has more than 1m subscribers to her channel in YouTube and 760k Instagram followers.
She’s married to a Japanese American named Benjie. Both of them take turns in filming their vlog. Their vlog is about their daily life raising 3 kids. It’s chaotic most of the time but fun.
I love watching her interactions with her kids. Julianna 3 y.o., and her 1+ y.o. identical twins Miya and Kiera.
The twins are already learning how to talk and it’s just so fun to watch. Especially Judy sometimes throws in some tagalog phrases like “gusto mo ng palo?” which the kids picked up and use it.
And Julianna is just so adorable and a sweet girl. One episode Judy went to yoga and when she came home Julianna says the sweetest thing “I miss you mommy.”
This is one of my favorite vlogs when Julianna was having a tantrum and Kiera was talking to her. So funny: you want palo?”
Bretman is different. He’s a 16 year old gay high school student from Hawaii who loves make up. And he is just the funniest. I actually discovered him when someone posted on Facebook (sometime last year) one of his videos.
He is already very popular in the social media scene. In Instagram alone he has 3.4m followers and in YouTube he has 421,099 subscribers.
One of my favorite videos (warning: this might not be for everyone): How to contour
His latest video is a Q&A about his Filipino roots: Filipino Q&A
Patrick is a professional make up artist. Parang he’s an older Bretman. I enjoy watching his tutorials, it’s not my style (it’s full on make up) but just watching his videos is sort of therapeutic for me. I know it’s weird but watching him relaxes my nerves.
And of course he is so funny!
He transforms himself from this:
Patrick is also famous in the social media scene. He has 645+ YouTube subscribers and 971k Instagram followers.
One of my favorite videos of Patrick is when he transforms himself to Kendall Jenner:
It’s nice to know that there are famous Filipinos making names in social media. Altho’ they are not based here but knowing they have Filipino roots and very proud of it makes me proud to be a Filipino, too.
So, if you have some spare time and want to be entertained try watching their videos.
