ON THE COVER: MELVIN TORDECILLA | Photographed by Ariel Magyawe | Styled by Dexter Balita | Issue No. 36

_________________________________________________

For people who personally don’t know you, it’s hard to imagine that a funny guy like you works in a more corporate job. How is Melvin different from @beben-eleben?

I think there’s no difference between Melvin and @beben-eleben. What you see online is what you get. I mean whatever Melvin feels and thinks, @beben-eleben feels and thinks the same way. Maybe @beben-eleben is just being Melvin online. I don’t have to impress somebody.

When and how did you discover tumblr? How long have you been on tumblr?

Before Tumblr, I was a loyal Plurk user. I had a group of friends called Plurkada; they’re also UPLB graduates. Some of them were blogging using tumblr. Then I got envious and I tried signing up. The first time I saw tumblr dashboard, I was like “Shet paano ito?! Haha” But then, I started posting like corny jokes I knew when I was in high school (I was the class clown) and photos I edited with my large watermark. Eventually, I love being a tumblr user. I’ve been posting crazy stuff since December 11, 2009.

You must’ve witnessed a lot of tumblr changes throughout the years. What’s the best thing about tumblr back then?

The best thing about tumblr way back then (circa 2009-2010) was the Tumblr Primetime where everyone was so active posting NSFW photos and jokes, funny texts, and some of them had their own GIFs. Another thing was that almost everyone in the dashboard joins the trending topics every night. When one tumblr famous posted something then another one had a post related to that, everyone would divulge things related to that until it becomes a trending topic of the night. My dashboard was fun-filled.

A lot of my friends know you. Even the ones whom I thought do not own a tumblr account will ask me if I’m friends with you. Are you as funny as your online persona in real life?

We’re friends, so am I? Haha. Kidding aside, yeah I think I was born to make other people happy.

You’ve organized some of the most unforgettable tumblr gatherings. What is by far, the most memorable meet up? Why?

I think the most unforgettable meet up I organized was the Enchanted Meet Up last May 14, 2011. This was memorable because as far as I know, this was the first tumblr meet up held in EK. This was also the first time that I became so stressed dealing with different kind people and solving unexpected circumstances; however, everything was all worth it because everyone still enjoyed the meet up.

What is the worst thing about tumblr?

The worst thing about tumblr is the issues among tumblr bloggers, specifically dealing with haters. Everyone should always think that we can’t please everyone. So stop wasting your time posting on everyone’s dashboard about your hater.

One lesson tumblr has taught you. (If there’s any)

One lesson that tumblr taught me is that not everyone will get your humor.

1 advise you’d like to share to tumblr newbies.

For tumblr newbies, just be yourself. It may sound cliché but, just share your skills and talents to express not to impress. Most tumblr oldies will not understand your own issues in life and what you do in tumblr, but you should not care about them because everything’s changing and we have to deal with it.

How is Melvin Tordecilla as a friend?

As a friend, I am makulit especially if I am the only one who doesn’t know a secret within my circle.  I always love to joke around. With my friends, I’m able to practice my sarcastic skills.  I’m always available when a friend needs my shoulder (figuratively and literally). My personality towards a close friend varies from unbearably clingy to disturbingly distant, and there is no in between.

How is Melvin Tordecilla back when he was five or six? What was your ambition?

When I was five or six, I dreamt to be a doctor or pilot.

That one person who inspires you the most and why?

My mom (aside from my dad, of course).  I don’t have to tell all the reasons why, but one thing’s for sure, I love her and I’m very thankful for the all the things she’s doing for me, especially the delicious food she cooks and the moral support she gives during my tough times. My mom is that one precious stone separated from the other millions for her strong and everlasting love which makes her shine like a diamond. She’s not perfect human being, but I will forever consider her a treasure that is close to perfection.

3 tumblr bloggers you look up to and why.

Me, myself and I. LOL. Seriously, there a lot of talented bloggers in tumblr, but three of them whom I look up to and I admire their skills are Ariel (arielmagyawejr), Julius (infelice) and Cris (israelmekaniko). Their blogs belong in different categories. Ariel is an expert in photography. His works are really awesome! I mentioned this before that Ariel and I have this KC Concepcion-Mark Nicdao relationship; meaning, I always want Ariel to be my photographer for my every photoshoot.

I consider Julius the Vexel and Vector Art King of Tumblr Philippines. I felt so honored and flattered when he made a vexel art of myself way back 2011. He is one of a kind in which you will feel insecure and question yourself, “Why don’t I have that kind of talent?”

Lastly, Cris is a good friend of mine. I like the humor on his blog posts which are “sobrang benta sa masa”. I really like his personality – kalog, may pakajologs but classy. One thing I like from these guys is that these three are all down to earth which makes them respectable.

Some people in tumblr who are tumblr famous as they call it, don’t know how to keep their feet on the ground. Tumblr is just a microblogging site, not Westeros of Game of Thrones.

5 Weird things we still don’t know about you.

a. Whenever I order food in a fast food or restaurant, my friends notice that I always have serious face that they find it very weird but funny.

b. I love reading books. I’m shocked that some people are surprised by this simply because they’re not expecingt that a funny weird guy like me  won’t read John Green novels.

c. I’m an impulsive shopper.

d. When I find someone cute around, I’m very transparent.  For further information, ask my friends. LOL

e. I have a lot of moles on my body (every body part you can think of).

What if one day, you wake up fearless, what’s the first thing that you will do?

I will go to the mall and eat everything!

I heard TAEMU12 is around the corner. What should we expect this time?

Thanks for this promotion! LOL. Having a competition in a tumblr meet up with cash involved as prize is not a joke. My co-organizers and I are very excited! We make sure everything is well-prepared before the meet up. Participants for the Amazing Race, which is the main event of TAEMU12, have been finalized, and we’re bonding online through our Facebook group. It’s a must, so that the racers will not have an awkward moment on the meet up itself. So expect TAEMU12 will be the best and grandest TAEMU to date! Too bad for others who refused to join in the race. LOL

Words you live by.

When my insecurity strikes, I always think and tell myself, “Fuck that! I’m Melvin Tordecilla!”

"My brother and I, we were about 7 and 8 I guess, made an obstacle course (inspired by Nickelodeon’s TV show the Legend of the Hidden Temple), out of pillows, in our room during our siesta time. Yeah, we were awake and playing instead of sleeping. Then when our yaya opens the door to check if we’re already asleep….. We play dead to trick our yaya that we are already asleep. Lol. It’s really funny and it’s my happiest childhood memory, thanks to my big brother. 
Without him my childhood would be dull and boring!!! And I get to make my little sister (10 years younger than me) a bit jealous because she never had a moment like that with my brother or with me and I get to brag about our adventures when we were still kids because my brother and I were really close (we still are now) and we were roomies too. We have that bonding not only my little sister will envy but also the other people. And that’s what makes it so special!”
