1. Be Anonymous: Upon your arrival at Victoria Court Malate, you will get a number and unique identifier code.
2. Take the Test: you will undergo a rapid screening with blood extracted by a simple prick on your finger using disposable one-time-use sanitary needles.
3. Have the Results: while waiting for the results, your counsellor will discuss with you safer sex practices to lower your risk of HIV infection and your results. It only takes 15 minutes to know the results after blood extraction.

MensRetreat

Much has changed and we now see better acceptance of gay, bisexual, and questioning men in the Philippine urban society. Despite this, many of us still feel the need to hide parts of who we truly are. With a great (but many times unconscious) desire to conform to what we think others expect of us, we follow paths that inadvertently disconnect us from the authentic yearnings of our core. This oftentimes translates to inexplicable feelings of emptiness or being stuck, perennial thoughts of being in the wrong job or wrong career path, or recurring experiences of failed relationships.

The Men’s Retreat, through a set of non-religious activities and lecturettes done within a weekend, will use the power of self-awareness and community to enable you to appreciate where you are in your current life, identify limiting beliefs and behaviors, and chart a new and more core-connected way forward.

Enjoy the weekend at a hilltop retreat house just half-an-hour away from Ortigas, in a safe and affirming space designed for insightful introspection. Join the Men’s Retreat and start your journey to authentic and wholehearted living.

Workshop fee (inclusive of overnight board and lodging) – P3,500

Early-bird discount of P500 for those who register and pay on or before May 2.

gotas de lluvia sobre hoja de laurel

To ‘rest on your laurels’ means that you get lazy or complacent about what you could achieve because you’re too busy basking in the memories of former glories.

Former manager and star masseurs of that spa on Quezon Avenue have reinvented themselves on the heels of the closure of their former establishment named Bayleaf. Definitely not resting on their laurels, and pushing themselves to provide an even better experience to massage patrons, they have turned over a new leaf and built a new and reinvigorated place called HOJA DE LAUREL (or HDL for short).

Starting this week they will be on “by invitation” mode. I recommend to try their heavenly Turkish Bath with their Signature Massage. You may request for an available schedule by contacting their spa manager at 0917-9117821. Their location is beside Heartbeat Mega KTV, across Capitol Medical Center.

Aaaaand…. if you are curious on who to try as your therapist — try my therapist Yael. There is “ok” massage, there is good massage, but Yael’s is excellent, just a hue lower than sobresaliente.

Dear Migs,

I am writing to you because someone’s asking for help. An ex-blogger called me last night with an unusual request. Let us call him Mr. Ex-Blogger (wow ang genius ko, hahaha).

He pulled out of the blogsphere last December when he found out that he was HIV+. By March this year Mr. Ex-Blogger took a second test that confirmed his positive status.

Notice that we’ve included some notable comments by MGG readers for each featured letter. Perhaps one of them is yours! Dear Migs, the book, is set to be launched in Manila on July 10, 2010.

Are you SINCERELY looking for friends among us, I mean PLUs (People Like Us)? If you’re looking for a friend, not a fuck, then maybe you can try out this new experiment of mine: an ultra-private social networking site exclusively for MGG readers. No one can see or browse it unless you are a member. And for now, the membership is by invitation. To be invited, see the instructions at the bottom of this post. Meanwhile, here’s an email from an MGG reader who inspired me to create this ultra-private social networking site.

Dear Migs,

Your blogs are diverse that cater every aspect of being gay, life of many gays and others that almost all PLU’s can relate with. Isn’t that great and fab? I LOVE your blog really.
