The Filipino Game of Tag - Jason Telmo

After a million years, I have finally finished my entry for the Filipino Game of Tag in response to Regisor94's tag

Reggie, I am sooooooooooooo sorry this has taken me forever to do. This may probably be the last time you're going to think of tagging me again...hehehe. If I could recall, you tagged me last August 10, and now it's what? September 1. took me 20 days to reply. I had to reserve a small studio and rent some lights for my shoot. After compiling the materials in Adobe Premiere, I faced the task of editing down one hour worth of footages to just 8 minutes. Meticulous Photoshop and AfterEffects work followed. Then there's the musical score and sound design. It was all worth it though. I enjoyed a lot making this video, and I hope all you Filipino youtubers enjoy viewing this. Thank you, Regisor for patiently waiting for this tag video to come out. And thank you, for adding me as your sixth tag! :-)

To GenTosMenTos, I applaude you for originating this game!
This thing you have started is the best idea anyone would ever come up for YouTube. You are a genius! I really hope this amazing game reaches every Pinoy and Pinay youtuber on the planet. :-)

So without further ado, let's play the Filipino Tag Game....
Here are the questions:

1. When was the last time you were in the Philippines?
2. Name one Filipino dish you enjoy the most. Why?
3. Name one Filipino household item that best resembles our culture. Explain.
4. Do you know how to speak in Tagalog? If so, say a phrase or two.
5. Which part of the Philippines are you from?

Here are the current rules:

1. If you're tagged, you have to play.
2. Tag who ever you want!
3. Have fun!

The five lucky people I'm tagging are:

1. My brother, Jonas

2. My sister, Joann

3. My cousin, Maurice

4. My uncle and aunt, Tito Joven and Tita Diding

5. My new friend, Dan
Hi, Dan. I'm sorry this came a bit late. I didn't count on you doing your tag video so soon. Anyway, I still feel honored tagging you for RegiSor.

Songs used in the tag video:

So Close -- sung by Jon McLaughlin, OST Enchanted
Time In -- sung by Yeng Constantino
Getting Into The Habit -- Sister Act soundtrack
Hana Kimi soundtrack -- sung by S.H.E.
Distant Shores -- Megatraxx 2007
BayaniJuan Minus 1 version -- ABS-CBN original music

"NOYPI" - sung by Bamboo for end credits

I tried to make this tag video very entertaining, if not comical. If you don't find it funny or even informative, thanks anyway for viewing. Forgive me also for the audio quality. The musical score is a bit too loud that it has virtually drowned my spiels. Thank you for bearing with me.
To all my subscribers and friends, I urge you to check out Reggie (the one who tagged me) Soriano's channel: and his other channel:
There are a lot of cool stuff there to see.

So again, thank you for being curious enough to open and view this new video of mine. I haven't uploaded anything for such a long time. Please feel free to comment and rate this video. As I would always say, if you have nothing good to say, I'd rather not hear from you. If you are not yet a subscriber or friend of mine, I will be deeply honored for your subscription and be twice grateful for your friend invite. Happy viewing! CHEERS!!!!! X-D X-D X-D
