3rd Year Blog Anniversary

Thanks to my blog widget, Blogoversary, I was reminded that in 2 days times, this blog would turn 3 years old. Happy Anniversary to this blog, Elmer Loves Oreo! Hurray! Yehey!
Almost 3 years ago, I posted my first blog post about my boyfriend (at that time) named Oreo. My first blog post was very simple. I just thanked Oreo for being in a long-distance relationship with me (at that time) for the past 9 months. Back then, blogging was a way to get in touch with him. I was planning at that time to post the things that I've been doing so that he'll somehow get entertained.
Over the course of 3 years, this blog has gone 2 change of templates, reached 175k page views, have 316 posts and had a period of "silence" from the blogosphere in 2012. It was the period when we broke up and I ended up creating the other blog, el toro bumingo. I focused my attention on the new blog and left this blog in "suspended motion".
In June 3, 2012, I decided to "revive" this blog and make it my Movies and Call Center Life Blog. I made this blog as an outlet on some of my rants about the BPO Industry and being a Kolboy (Call Center Agent). I also posted some of the things that I experienced in the call center industry on this blog. Lately, this blog is becoming a venue for me to post upcoming movies and its trailers.
In the coming months, I envision this blog to be updated regularly as my Movies and Call Center Life Blog. I'll probably change the tagline in the Header as a reminder of this blog's new purpose in my life. Of course, this blog is a reminder on how a clueless guy could be a blogger because of love. Again, my gratitude to Oreo for making a blogger out of me.
Happy 3rd Year Anniversary to this blog.

One Direction’s “This Is Us”

I’m a certified Directioner and I can’t wait for One Direction’s upcoming movie “This Is Us”. I’ve seen one of their concert videos and I just can’t get enough of the Fab Five.

Niall Horan is my favorite member of One Direction by the way. I even named one of my Ragnarok Characters after him. He’s an Arch Bishop and is at level 150.

Speaking of the upcoming One Direction movie “This Is Us”, check out this latest trailer for that movie.

In the call center industry, when an account has a lot of avail time (no calls coming in), it only means two things -- either the account is overstaff or the account will soon be pulled out. There's a lot of avail time in our account lately -- and we're not overstaff.

Yesterday, we already received the bad news -- the account is decreasing the number of agents since the demand of the client (call volume) was also decreased. We'll be redeployed to other accounts within the call center company. It means that we'll have some time off-the-phone until we can be absorbed by the other accounts. I heard it would be paid for the first 30 days. If we're still "floating" after 30 days, then it would no longer be paid. It's either we wait for a few more days or look for another company.

This is not the first time that I'll be redeployed. In the past 6 years that I've been in the call center industry, I've been redeployed (client decision) around 6 times already. I'm used to this scenario although it's still a pain in the butt. It means that we have to learn new tools, new processes, new product and new support. This is one of the several things that I hate in the call center industry.

If the call center company that hired you is a big company with a lot of sites in different parts of the country, then you don't need to worry. There's a big chance that you'll get a new account immediately. Otherwise, you have to begin editing your resume and start sending the updated one to other companies.

I better start updating my resume.


We had a meeting yesterday and it was formally announced that the account is closing effective July 1, 2013. We’ll be endorsed to an ISP account and the interview process will begin tonight.

“300: Rise of an Empire”

“300: Rise of an Empire” is the follow-up to the 2007 film “300”. It’s directed by Noam Murro.

I haven’t watched “300” yet (I’m downloading it as I create this blog post) but I heard so much about the movie. I guess the TV series “Spartacus” was inspired by the success of “300”. I think this follow up movie, “300: Rise of an Empire” would be a successful movie as well.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The poster of the 2nd movie in The Hobbit Series was recently posted on the Facebook page of Warner Bros Philippines. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the journey of Bilbo Baggins and the dwarves to recapture their fortress against a dragon.

I can’t wait to watch this movie.

TomDen Love Team

As far as I know, this is the first time in Philippine television that gay love will take center state. “My Husband’s Lover” is indeed something to look forward to. It will be aired tonight, July 10, 2013 so let’s all watch it.

Congratulations to GMA Network for coming up with a tele-novela that is not mainstream and for educating the public that there really exist love between two guys. Two good-looking and discreet guys.

Since they’re both Hanford models, would it be too much to ask them to strip to their underwear on primetime TV? Smile

Jeremy Irvine in “War Horse”

“War Horse” is a 2011 blockbuster movie starring Jeremy Irvine. I only watched it today and it’s heartwarming. It is set in England during World War I and it’s the story of a young man and his amazing horse.

At first, I got attracted to Jeremy Irvine when I saw him on Just Jared. I researched his filmography and found out that he starred in this Spielberg movie. It made him popular overnight and the movie’s story is to be credited for that.

If you have time, please do watch “War Horse”.


Brad Pitt in World War Z

Brad Pitt is ageless. He’s forever gorgeous. He’ll be the lead star of another zombie movie.

After watching the zombie movie “Warm Bodies”, here’s another zombie apocalypse movie to look forward to – “World War Z”. Z as in Zombie. With all the news today of newly discovered virus, who knows, we probably would end up in a zombie infested future.

The Promise of Oreo

It’s almost 2 years since Oreo and I ended our Long Distance Relationship. Our story that started in 2009 ended in 2011. The good thing about us is that we remain friends. In fact, we keep on sending each other messages, either via Facebook or Twitter.

My love for Oreo will always be there. We may never be lovers again but we’re definitely friends. We often tease each other about getting back to each other’s arms but that’s not a possibility at this time. First, he’s still in Saudi Arabia and I’m still here in Manila. Second, I really don’t know if he still loves me as a boyfriend or will he ever love me again. Our break-up was also traumatic to me and I can’t say for sure if I would say “Yes” if he ask me to be his lover again.

France and New Zealand recently allowed gay marriage in these countries and I’m teasing him into getting married in those countries. I’m also teasing him to give me a cellphone with Instagram capabilities and he said he’ll give me one. The question is, when will he return?

I’m glad that we’re still good friends in spite of what happened.
