hello there!

I realized that my last post was waaaay back February 2013, and yeah, on that last post I promised that I’ll be back when the school works are all done..

More than one year had passed, and I sincerely apologize for my long hiatus. Either because I’d been too occupied with, yeah, school works again; or I was not that motivated to finish my posts (actually, as time went by, I made drafts of my blog posts that were supposed to be published – even in my personal blog – but yeah, because of that lack of inspiration, I hadn’t continued publishing them).

But, my interest in ads is always present. In our casual conversations with my family and friends, we cannot avoid to include throwbacks, and part of that reminiscing is the nostalgia that TV ads bring to us. For me, that served as a time machine which makes me travel back to the past (even if I don’t want to, haha).

I miss posting here. And I was surprised that this blog has gotten a lot of views when I was not active on the past year, and a few people even posted comments on some blog posts! Thank you, thank you. :’)

Now, um, honestly I don’t know what I’ll do next for this blog.. I still have no idea if I’ll be able to publish a post about a particular ad or two on the soonest time possible.

Ideas are very much appreciated! Feel free to comment your ad requests or whatever you want to see in this blog in my About page. Thank you!

Just stay tuned, guys!


Our homework in Statistics involves TV ads!

Last Tuesday, our Statistics professor gave a homework to us. And that homework should be done the coming Monday, from 12 noon to 12:30 p.m.

She said that we have to list down all the TV advertisements that are going to appear on the three leading TV networks (ABS-CBN, GMA, TV5)* on that timeslot. Our entire class are divided into three groups, and our group is assigned to watch the commercials aired on TV5. I have no idea about the real purpose of this assignment; maybe this is an “appetizer” for a new lesson. Really awakened my senses! :)

The last time I watched a particular program on that channel, I haven’t seen as many TV commercials as the other two channels have. Maybe because TV5 is a ‘younger’ network than GMA and ABS-CBN. But I don’t know this time, if the number of ads aired have increased or not yet. Nonetheless, there are still ads! :)

One thing’s sure: I’m ready for my takeoff on Monday! Even though the ‘ride’ is just for 30 minutes. Haha. :D

*Channels arranged in alphabetical order. I am AGAINST network wars.

the ironic truth

I always enjoy having conversations about TV commercials. It seems like I have plenty of things to say because there are lots of product jingles that are still stuck in my head for a very long time. But actually, if I talk about TV commercials in real life, I sometimes get goose bumps on my skin, or even my face may blush a little bit! And the worse thing is that I CANNOT AVOID THEM! I look like a creeped-out person everytime I feel them approaching me. But I think those are just the visible effects of my nostalgia. [I hope you haven’t seen my awkward face when we talk about TVCs… I am trying soooo hard to hide it!] ;P

Okay, I admit that I have watched TV commercials that seemed creepy to me, but I still enjoy them at all! :D [What scares me more when I watch creepy commercials are those moments when that ad disturbs my mind when I sleep during the dark night! and I am the only one sleeping in my room! Hoooo!] >___<
