Spell Saab

So my blog is turning 12 this month. I’ve never done a meet up before because I’m shy like that (hehehe) but I would really like to have lunch and meet some of my loyal blog readers this Saturday, December 12. YAY!



I can only accommodate 20 people, because I’m socially awkward. And I actually want to talk to you guys! Maybe next year we can do a bigger celebration. I have no idea how to choose the twenty so I hope you guys can just leave a note below and I will randomly select 20 people by tomorrow :) Please only post once and please do so ONLY if you can actually go!!

We’re going to eat, play games, play with Joey Bear, take home loot bags and get to win a lot of cool items including phones, books, backpacks, etc!

Looking forward to meeting you guys!!!

    Well, first of all, Congrats Ate Saab!! Happy blog-ersary! >:)< Cheers to you and to your blog! ♥
    Always kong inaabangan ang mga posts mo lalo na kapag nagttravel ka kasi kapag nagbabasa ko it feels that I'm also touring with you :) And dito ako sa blog mo first ever nanalo sa isang book give away. Sa 12 books of Christmas, kaya sobrang special nito sakin :D So much regrets nung nagperform ang Cheats sa TUP Manila because I wasn't able to watch kasi nago-OJT ako :( Pero I heard you guys rocked it! :D
    Congrats again, Ate Saab! More awesomeness for your blog! And also to Joey Bear hihi :)

    I don’t know why I’m leaving a comment. Part of me knows I’ll die when I see you, but part of me also wants to see you. I want to get picked/not get picked. I don’t know. My brain’s not functioning well right now–and this is just freakin’ online! AAAAAAHHHH.

    Happy 12th btw! Phew. At least I said something that makes sense.

    Wow it’s been 12 years! I’m so proud and happy for you Saab. Been reading your blog since 2009. You’re my one of my fave blogger tbh. I love your sass, your humor and taste of music & fashion. I really really really wanna meet you if only I’m in Manila. But anyway, happy anniversary to your blog and keep doing what makes you happy. Love you Saab. ❤?

    Hi Saab!
    Happy Anniversary to you & your awesome blog. :}

    I’m not quite sure if you’d allow me to join as I can’t count myself yet a loyal blog follower (if time is relevant) I just started perusing your socials including this blog but I remember obsessing on your wedding video. :}
    I’d love to meet you. No matter how awkward it might be.

    hi ate saab!! happy 12 to your blog! in all honesty, your blog is the only one i read and one of the few celebrities i follow and stalk (ehehehe creepy alert ba lels). it would be nice to meet you and other fellow loyal blog leaders. i hope to be chosen as one of the 20! it would make me sooo anxious because i can be so awkward at times but i will conquer (more like try my best to conquer haha) this anxiety if it means meeting you! i hope to see you, ate saab! :)

    OMG Saab! This is the day! (will be the day, hopefully) That I actually get to talk to you! I saw Cheats play at Scout Magazine’s launch at SM Aura, I have Cheats album on my Spotify playlist, I’ve watched No Filter mainly to see and support you (Team No Filter all the way!) and most of all I’m a constant reader! (I just love you this much)

    Happy Blogversary! Spending a lunch with you and fellow readers will be so awesome :)

    HI SAAB!!!!

    I’ve been reading your blog since I was a 4th year high school student. Since then I wanted to be your sister. Hahah because I saw how close you are to your family like I am with mine. I admired you not being afraid to be yourself and just doing the things that you really want to do and not minding others. Now I’m already a 3rd year college student and I’m still reading your blog and I have it bookmarked!!

    I’m actually a person who has a lot of insecurities. But you are one of those people who is my present peg in life when it comes to being a confident person. :)

    Hoping that I would be picked!! :)

I don’t know if you still remember me, but I’ve been crushing you since then, and I’m the one who gave you the magic mug, at the opening of FMCC SM Fairview. And unfortunately, that’s was the last time I saw you, so I am eager to be picked by you!!! I was also the one who wrote blog posts for you on tumblr, about how much I adore you. Huhu. I want to meet you again, bond and talk about everything under the sun!!! And just so you know, you’re my peg for fashion and creative shots for my graduation pictorial!!!

    I’m dying to meet you. I seriously want to be picked by you!!! Huhuhu. I HOPE TO MEET YOU SOON.

    I would really like to be picked for this one, and here I am trying my luck. But I know, you’ll pick your most loyal fan, coz Im just a fan since 2011 and i dont think you’ll pick me. Please have fun, and hopefully when you were not shy enough to meet a big crowd of your fans, i’ll finally see your face and have a nice picture with you.

    P.S, I’m actually a shy one too ? Love you saab!

First attempt was to meet and to grab the stacks of books but i commented on ur IG not here. na sad ako kasi feel ko ang tanga ko haha . Hope you could pick me, and it would be another present from papa god. :)

    You’re my super girl crush for years way back your Candy mag days. Awkwarddd for me to say that. Super fan of yours! My guy doesn’t get the idea why I “idolize” you. It creeps him out. LELZ. Hoping you would pick me as one of THE lucky 20. I’d be sooo happy if that happens and trade my no sleep day on the 12th of Dec, bec I’d be coming from a 24 hour hospital duty, just to meet and greet you and Joey too *hopefully*! :D Thanks Saab.

    Hi Saab!

    Upon discovering your blog when I was in high school (i’m 21 now!), you inspired me to write mainly because I admire how candid you are on your blogs (especially your writing style!) inspiring me to try writing (which lead me later on to join school publications till I was in college!). Now, you inspire me naman not to simply settle down with anyone. Sobrang #relationshipgoal ko kayo ni Jim haha! I just want to meet you in person to simply say thank you for inspiring me to find and develop inner voice.

    Hi, Saab! I’ve been a quiet reader for a couple of years now and I keep on coming back because I like how honest you are. Your posts are fun to read and I like how you’re not afraid to reinvent yourself – from looks to career. You inspire me, because you’re not afraid to pursue your dreams. There are probably more loyal blog readers than me who followed your blog from the very start, but if you pick me, that would be super duper awesomely cool.

    More power to your blog and Merry Christmas in advance! :)

I don’t know how you do it but you just connect to the mind of your readers every single time. Whatever experience that is that you wanted to share like how your trip was, your experience to this restaurant and how much you love Joeybear very much and so, your effortless amazing writing skills takes your reader with you. I would agree to what Jim has said about you, that your’e a great story teller and that you are always interesting because how can you grow thousands of readers if you are not diba??? I want to meet you, Joeybear and your other lucky readers so this time we are not just talking to your virtually this time we are not just reading your blog post about your blog anniversary, but we get the actual fun exciting experience. Saabey may this be your early Christmas present for me. Hahaha will wait for your confirmation email. lelz.

I was even thinking that I will call you Mrs. Bacarro if I ever saw you around! Hahahaha kahiya levels :)) But yes, I want to chat and share wisdom and kwentos and get jelly over your Euro trip shenanigans over good food! Hope you pick me! Of course making 19 more friends out of this wouldn’t be too bad as well! :D

    Hi Saab! My sister Jacqui and I want in on your 12th anniversary meet up please!!!!

    I’d like to ask all the questions I wasn’t able to ask you in AskSaab because that would certainly mean flooding your ask box. Also, meeting you again and having the chance to converse with you about music, movies, TV series, MAKE UP & BEAUTY, fashion and just about anything fun under the sun is one of my bucket lists. Hehe.

    Will you please bestow upon me/us the pleasure of your company and the experience your meetup offers? :) :) :)

    Hi saab. Just trying the best of luck here for my girlfriend. She is a big fan of yours. From your hair and the way you dress to relationship with your husband and how you play DOTA and travel together. Honestly, my girlfriend says “goals” everytime. She likes you that much. She keeps sending me your pictures. Lol. She already wrote an entry here and I know how badly she wants this. Just in case, she might not be randomly picked. Atleast I have another entry for her. I want to suprise her with this as a gift for our 4th anniv. Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi Saab! I definitely want to go and meet you in person.
    I don’t know what to say that would make you pick me nevertheless here I am trying :)

    I haven’t been present during your Incugirl days but I have lurked for a while now and commented in a few posts from time to time.
    You are a breath of fresh air and realness. Would definitely keep my fingers crossed!

    Hi Saab,

    Maybe eto na ang time para malaman mo na kinakabit ko ung name mo sa name ko para lang f nf ko ang pagka-Saab ko in totality! :) Saabish na ang inangkin kong pen name! hahaha. I was able to see you many times na pero syempre isa ako sa mga avid “silent” fans mo na support all the way in our own little way. It’ll be a great pleasure kung magkakaroon tayo ng bonding talaga! Excited to play with #JoeyBear of course! Pero I am most excited of is you telling us stories the way you are writing here in your blog!

    Hi Saab! I just started following you last week and I haven’t been able to stop reading. Currently, I’m on page 28 of your blog and I’ve enjoyed every post so far :) you’ve also inspired me to start blogging again! It’d be so cool if I could ask you my questions and share some stories in person!

    Hello Saab!

    Congratulations for successfully reaching 12 years in blogging! I wonder how it is to be with you though we (readers) enjoy each blog post you have, we would still like to meet you personally!

    Someone who’s making her own name in her chosen field.
    A person who’s tough enough to
    Answer all the questions being thrown to her.
    Bold, witty and book lover…

    Hope to see you this SAAB-Day with Joey bear!

    Incugirl, saab the strange, robots, aliens, your first love and how you threw the tissue paper box to him, and your years with your college ex, your plurkada and your bloghops (blogspot, multiply, tumblr, wordpress), your bestfriend marquis, you being kissed in the rain, being teased to a showbiz personality, and then to working with GMA, your family gatherings, your TV guesting, the books you’ve read, the many bands you’ve been, the movies and the series you’ve watched, your messy good hair, joey bear, when Jim(?) gave/sent you a bag because he likes you and you’re getting over your ex, the engagement, your wedding, your FINALLY YOU’VE BEEN TRAVELING photos (because I waited for it for so long as you do not travel much before) and many more! I may not witness/remember every detail but I do know how you became such an inspiration. That celebrity status does not mean you’re different. Its kinda sad the blog has to be of some “work” now, I miss the days you post like an average teenage girl, a girl in crisis and everything. can’t believe its been 10 yrs since some links linked me to your old blog. I’ve got the chance to meet you twice already and it would be a privilege to be invited to this (because huhu #lifegoals) hoping to see you again soon!

I always find myself reading through your blog because the way you talk to your readers, it seems that we are your friends in real life. Thank you! Hoping to get picked! <3

    You’re so near yet so far! I’m the girl who attends your gigs, bought your album, see you walking around a mall, but never really approached you because, well, I guess I’m as shy as you are. :( I’ve been checking CHEATS gig schedule just to hopefully have you guys sign my CD but when I get to the venue, I get all nervous just thinking about approaching you so I content myself with singing along to your set. I would love to meet you in person and have an actual conversation about pop culture in general and you know #adulting. I live near Milky and Sunny Makati so I would definitely be up for the invite! :) -Real

    I’m couple of days late so I got almost zero chances but I want to try anyway. I’m not gonna lie and say that I’ve been reader since the beginning because I’m not – but it’s been couple of years since i started religiously reading your blog and I did backtrack your entries. We are the same age and it’s fascinating for me to read your thoughts and day to day adventures because it’s similar and at the same time entirely different from mine. We got that same millennial vibe (whatever that is) and I got this feeling that we will be good friends if somehow the universe were kind enough to put us in the same place. Your blog is wildly entertaining and never pretentious. For me you are not showbiz personality – you’re like a long distant pal.

    Congratulations on your wedding with Jim and I hope there will be more opportunities for you to do what you want – may it be another TV project, or cheats-related or a book.
