3 years of Discreet Manila (and a Fave Fab Blog to boot)

So how was your Valentine’s? Mine was pretty uneventful with me being single and all, but I’m quite happy with where I am now. I don’t feel lonely at all and it’s all in having a positive attitude and in realizing that having a special someone is not the be all and end all of being happy. :-)

Anyway, I’d just like to announce that after almost 200 posts, more than 250 followers, half a thousand feed subscribers, and over 1,300 comments, Discreet Manila turned 3 years old last Friday! Yahoo! Though I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked these past few months (blame in on the tons of things I’m occupied with IRL), I will certainly continue writing for Discreet Manila. I love sharing information and giving out my thoughts and opinions, and Discreet Manila has provided me with an outlet for the PLU side of me. I hope that you have all enjoyed reading this blog over the past 3 years and I hope that you will all continue to patronize my little corner of the Web.

This 3-year milestone was celebrated with a very nice present from the Fabcasters when they named my blog as one of their 15 Favorite Fab Blogs of 2010! Yay! Thanks to AJ, CC, Gibbs, McVie, Migs, and Tony. Thank you very much for this great honor, guys!

Congratulations are also in order to the other 14 blogs (listed below). I read many of them and they are all deserving to be your favorite blog too, not just of the Fabcasters.

  1. Back in the Closet
  2. Baklang Maton
  3. Chuvaness
  4. City Buoy
  5. Hot Men in the Philippines
  6. I am Fickle Cattle
  7. Jessica Rules the Universe
  8. Lexuality
  9. Mandaya Moore
  10. Misterhubs
  11. The Bakla Review
  12. The Professional Heckler
  13. Tiggah’s Life in Random
  14. Tristan Tales

Thank you everyone, and here’s to 3 and more years of Discreet Manila! :-)

congrats boss! although you are still (super) discreet to me because i still don't have any idea of how you look like, i will still follow you as long as i could. you open too many doors for me to explore my inner self.

kahit nakita ko na ang halos lahat ng myembro ng fabcasters, i will still continue to haunt you in manila...

Congratulations on your success. I would like to ask, do you have any advise for straight me (like me) who wants to get laid as easily as apparently discreet gay men do? Is there places for straight men can go to for nothing other than casual sex?I find it hard to find hot chicks willing for NSA, either they are too "conserv" or they're just not into NSA.

P.S. Don't ask me how I got to this website lol

Are there places where straight men can go to where we can get casual sex pretty easily? To me clubs, bars and those other usual places are inaccessible. And I always find girls either too conservative or just not interested in NSA. Plus they would villanize you if you just ask them if they want sex straight up. I am fairly good-looking but I have little game.

P.S. Don't ask me how I got to this website lol.
