Note: This blog entry is not for the prudes and conservatives. Before you cast your judgements on what kind of person Giselle Sanchez is, I suggest that you review my previous entries as well.
I got a call from Judy Ann Santos asking if I could help organize the games for Jane Vicencio’s bridal shower. Jane happened to be Juday’s road manager and best friend. She also was going to be my future sister-in-law since Jane would be marrying the brother of my husband. Glad to help, I wanted Jane’s shower to be memorable like mine.
Flashback muna tayo sa year 2000.
Ang best friend kong si Ina Raymundo ang nag-organize ng bridal shower ko. Siyempre kapag sinabi mong bridal shower, ano ang unang iisipin ng mga malalaswa mag-isip? Kung ang sagot ninyo ay “macho dancer,” congratulations! Kayo ang nakatangap ng “malaswa-nga-ako-mag-isip- award!” For your prize, makakatanggap kayo ng P20,000 gift voucher na kailangan ma-redeem within 24 hours and non-transferrable—gift checks sa Funeraria Paz!
Palibhasa ay laking-Bulacan na naging biglaang sexy star si Ina Raymundo, walang siyang alam tungkol sa mga macho dancer at kung saan makakuha noon. Kaya, inutusan niya yung iba naming kaibigan na pumick-up ng dalawang lalaki sa Quezon City Memorial Circle! (Tama ba yun!).
Imagine the surprise of these two unsuspecting guys when they saw a room full of celebrities expecting them to dance and take their clothes off! In short, sa sobrang nerbiyos ng dalawang chakang lalaki, walang “flag ceremony” na naganap. Ang masasabi ko lang ay wala silang karapatan maging call boy dahil sobrang “liit” ng kanilang confidence! Ang papangit pa ng mga brief!
Siyempre upset ang bride-to-be (ako iyon!) at kinailangan nina Ina at mga barkada namin na mag-damage control.
Maya-maya, biglang may dumating na guwapong Swiso (yes, Europe’s milking capital of the Philippines!) at nag-perform to death mala-Chippendales! Ang ganda ng katawan, hunk na hunk! Sumayaw ng ubod ng sexy, nagsigawan ang mga girls at bading! Biglang hinila ang pantalon (Velcro style pala!), labas agad ang silver thongs at HOLY COW…sumilip sa thongs si manoy! Walang tatalo sa Alaska! Siyempre, naloka ako sa tuwa, nagsigawan lahat girls, bading at tomboy! Nang matapos ang show, nag-decide ang tatlo kong best friends na si Ina, Riza at Faith na mag-aasawa sila ng foreigner dahil sa “haba” ng performance at sa “taba” ng puso.
Apat kaming mag-best friend, ako ang unang nakapangasawa ng Pilipino. Pagkatapos, wala nang sumunod. Si Ina ay nakapangasawa ng Canadian, si Faith ay nakakuha ng French at si Riza, Amerikano!
Back to the present, dahil napamahal na rin sa akin ang aking future-sister-in-law, kinailangan kong gumawa ng kakaibang bridal shower na siguradong mag-e-enjoy siya at lahat ng kanyang bisita.
May nag-donate na ng macho dancers pero marami sa aming mga girlash ang hindi feel ang mga macho dancers. Sa totoo lang, tuwing pumupunta ako sa mga bridal showers, naawa ako sa mga macho dancers, kasi yung hitsura nila, mukhang napipilitan. Para ngang natatae yung facial expression…Di ko alam kung nerbiyos ba sila o nahihiya sa ginagawa nila.
Hinanap ko si Swiss Cheese na mala-Chippendale ang appeal pero sa Thailand na raw naka-base. Ngek, wala kaming ganoon kalaking budget para gumastos ng Bangkok-Manila-Bangkok ticket.
Naalala ko na may kaibigan akong nag-o-organize ng showers at ang kanyang mga game masters or “boys” ay mga ubod ng guwapong European hunks, Brazilians, at Australians. Hindi maghuhubad at magsasayaw yung kanyang mga boys. They will conduct the games with the bride.
Ganito yung estilo ng kanilang mga games: Magtatanong yung mga party attendees ng mga juicy questions sa bride-to-be at kapag hindi masagot ng bride-to-be ang katanungan, o di kaya ay mali ang sagot ay mag-i-strip ang mga boys, one clothing at a time until they reach their trunks.
Then the boys will put chocolate syrup on their lips, ears, abs, nipples, etc. and if the bride cannot answer or if she gives a wrong answer, the bride has to choose a participant who will lick off the syrup from the boys’ body. Siyempre, kahit tama yung sagot ni Jane sa mga katanungan, talagang sumisigaw kaming mali para makahubad na yung mga hunks! Para kaming matrona! For fun lang baga!
Bawal kumuha ng pictures, pero dahil napakiusapan ko na itatago ko ang kanilang mukha sa blog ko, pumayag naman ang mga boys. Eto ang mga pictures ng kakaibang gabi na iyon! Enjoy kaming lahat kasi bagamat may pagkalaswa ng kaunti ang gabi, wholesome pa rin dahil walang “manoy” na sumilip at nagpakitang-gilas. Wala ring mga lalaking mukhang na-e-ebs habang sinasabunan ang kanilang maliliit na okra!
I’m sure marami ang magtatanong kung saan ko nakuha ang mga boys so you may email email@example.com if you’re interested to have a similar shower or a mock shower, para sa mga kikay na gusto lang makakita ng abs at maka-kiss ng hunks. Take note, these hunks are not call boys but game masters in all-girl showers (girls, meaning up to 45 only). Puwede mag-invite ng mga bading pero no touch. No pictures din. Just a great wholesome time.
Again for the prudes and conservatives, please do not judge me because you are not a judge. Basahin niyo muna ang ibang blog entries ko bago kayo magsimulang manghusga diyan. Huwag tayo magpaka-self-righteous nang over. Magpakatotoo ka, sister!

Last 2008, I started a very powerful and fulfilling habit that has magically changed my life for the better, and I want to share this to all of you, PEP friends, so that you can miraculously change your 2009 for the better, if not for the best!
2008 has been a very dramatic year for the GSPOT, if you connote it to writing this blog.
Dito ko nalaman na maraming PEPSTERS na nagmamahal sa akin, na concerned sa akin, naaliw sa akin at nagdasal para sa akin at mga kaibigan ko.
Dito ko rin nalaman na mayroon ding mga PEPsters na naiinis sa akin o naasar, with their criticisms left and right. But I take these criticisms constructively, so that I can improve myself. Kaya gusto ko ring ibalik lahat ng magandang nagawa sa akin ng mga PEPsters with this new blog.
After immersing myself with books like The Secret (read my blog entry “Attracting the Good and the Beautiful“), The Holy BIBLE, Celestine Prophecy of James Redfield, Conversations with God by Neal Donald Walsch, and The Teachings of Abraham Book Collection: How to Put the Law of Attraction to Work in Your Life by Esther Hicks & Jerry Hicks, I realized that the SOURCE (for you it may be God, the universe, the energy) is very generous with its blessings, and all you have to do is TO ASK. And that’s what I did! (read my blog entry “Paano makuha ang minimithi“)
Before the start of 2008, I wrote some affirmations last December 2007 and recorded them on my iPod. Affirmations are positive mantras, the things you want to accomplish, the things you want to happen, the things you ASK. Alam niyo ba ang nakakalokah sa mga mantras ko, halos lahat ng hiningi ko, nakuha ko!
Affirmations or Mantras need not be as long as mine. Puwedeng three to five lines lang. Kung napanood ninyo yung movie na Evan Almighty, starring comedian Steve Carrel, makikita niyo dun na bago siya umals ng bahay niya, haharap siya sa salamin at sasabihin:
“I’m successful, powerful, handsome, happy.”
Evan Almighty’s mantra is enough for him to go by –
I’M SUCCESSFUL: mantra for his career to be successful
I’M HANDSOME: mantra for his confidence
I’M POWERFUL: mantra for his personal wishes to come true
I’M HAPPY: mantra for his emotional being
In my case, I have made my mantras part of my personal prayer to God. Everyday when I wake up, I open my balcony door and look at my favorite tree, open my iPod and listen to my mantras. Kung wala naman akong oras dahil ang dami kong trabaho, pag-uwi ko sa gabi, aakyat ako sa prayer room namin sa fourth floor at doon ko pakikinggan ang affirmations ko. These affirmations are very personal to me.
But because you, PEPsters, showed so much love and devotion to my blog and have helped me survive some of the lowest points in my life (read my blog entry “Why Good things happen to Bad People“), I decided to share one of my personal secrets to success. So what’s in my iPod? What do I do when I wake up?
I START WITH A PERSONAL PRAYER:
I completely surrender myself to God.
I thank Mama Mary for covering me, my family, and home with her mantle of maternal protection.
I thank the Holy Spirit for empowering me today and guiding my actions to the GOOD. I thank the Holy Sprirt for granting me the grace to understand and forgive the mistakes of others. (Medyo perfectionist kasi ako at madaling mainis pag may nagkakamali so I need the Holy Spirit’s power for that.)
MANTRAS FOR PHYSICAL HEALTH:
I am healthy. I think young and feel young.
I wake up each day feeling healthy and energized.
Every cell in my body is healing and regenerating into good cells.
I am perfectly healthy physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially, and financially.
I am very sexy and in perfect weight.
I eat only the food that I need in order to maintain good health. (Kelangan sabihin ito lagi para di kumakain ng junk food.)
I exercise everyday. (Kelangan sabihin din ito para mahiya ako at gawin ko.)
MANTRAS FOR EMOTIONAL HEALTH:
I am happy.
I let go of things and people that I cannot control. I change the things I want that are in my power.
I am forgiving. I allow myself to heal.
I am healing all my childhood wounds. (Doesn’t everyone have one?)
I love my parents, my siblings, Emil and Lia.
I am at peace and move to greater peace and happiness each day.
I find good in everyone. I respect everyone. I always feel good whatever the situation is. I am confident. People like me. I am powerful, I can control my moods and feelings. I never judge myself or anyone. (Kelangan kong sabihin ito, ang hilig ko kasi mang-okray.)
I have many friends, I am charismatic.
MANTRAS FOR CAREER:
My talent attracts work, tapings and shootings, and performances here and abroad.
I PERFORM in front of large crowds.
My talent attracts a lot of money. I manage my resources well. Part I keep for myself and part I share to the less fortunate.
I am a visionary and my visions become reality.
I act on my plans and succeed in doing them,
By the end of January, I film a movie (Nangyari po ito, Manay Po 2)
By the end of February , I tape a TV show (Nangyari rin ito.)
I give birth to a baby boy (I had a miscarriage pero mukhang mangyayari na, I don’t know the gender of my baby yet kasi mag-fo-four months pa lang.)
I will be endorsing several products in commercials (It happened! Stresstabs and Solve.)
I am blessed, I am generous, I am rich, I am prosperous, I am Giselle Sanchez!
These were my affirmations for 2008. I am still in the process of making new ones for 2009. Sabayan ninyo ako gumawa ng mga milagro! Nothing is impossible if you truly believe. Eight years ago pa ang huling commercial na ginawa ko. Last year, I made two commercials because I affirmed it! The baby boy did not happen, but after my miscarriage, I was not disheartened. I continued believing, I continued asking. Keep the Faith my friends.
Look at me. Now face the mirror and look at you. I believe in you!
