Original Vince G of Philippine Radio at the Krispy Kreme Green Lantern Preview

After moving back to the Philippines just over a year ago, I somehow fell into a wonderful job of being a radio announcer / DJ. I wasn’t very creative with my radio name nor did I really do any research, and just used my real name of Vince G, with the “G” just being short of my last name, Golangco.

Months after my stint in radio had begun, I found out that my radio name of “Vince G” had actually been used before by former radio DJ Vince Garrucho.

Fortunately, no angry mails had come my way from fans of, or from the original Vince G himself.

Anyway, I hosted a Krispy Kreme exclusive movie screening of the new Green Lantern movie to also promote their new Green Lantern Kreme Doughnuts.

The cool part about tonight was meeting this very friendly guy named “Vince.” I could sense a radio voice when he introduced himself and I immediately asked if he was indeed, “Vince G?” To my surprise, he actually was!

This original Vince G was really nice and we even chit chatted about his past radio career and his current hobbies like photography and diving. Original Vince G also spoke of his new Helo-Diving business, where scuba divers first jump out of a helicopter when they get to their destination.

Anyway, just really excited to meet this Vince guy! He has a really cool name! =)

Also, do try the really yummy Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut!

Philippine Elections and YOUR Turn to Vote on May 10

Dough forget to vote!

It’s election time in the Philippines and one of two things will happen to the voters of this nation: One is that many will forget to vote, and Two, many will vote multiple times… Well that’s just the way the country works…

But either way, it’s good to know that there are people out there who do their part in reminding forgetful, non-news-watching, non-tv-viewing, non-radio-listening, non-internet-checking people to go out and vote.


At Krispy Kreme, they made some new, limited edition doughnuts that will surely remind you to go out and vote. Even better is that they’ll reward you with an “Orange You Glad” (orange juice type shake) drink if you come into selected Krispy Kreme branches and show your voting finger stamp. Of course, you can probably just stamp your finger with a regular stamp, but that’d be really sleezy and the doughnut gods will frown upon you.

Also, if you want to practice your voting skills, you can come into a Krispy Kreme outlet where you will, for a limited time, place your order with a ballot-like form where you have to shade in your doughnut orders. It’s practice for people who have never shaded ballots before. Believe me, it’s much more complicated than you think… just ask the citizens of Florida!

Anyway, thanks to Krispy Kreme, here are some tips on preparing yourselves for the upcoming elections:

1. Turnout will be HUGE! So come before 7am, unless you want to be in line all day.

2. Keep your cool! Stock up on H2O, you don’t want to add to the heat of the election fever, right?

3. Did you know you’re only given one ballot? So make a list or better yet, use a Krispy Kreme vote 2010 mock ballot as your guide. (available at participating outlets)

4. Bring a friend or two! Make the elections a fun democracy date.

After you vote:

5.  On May 10, add this page where you can get a coupon on Facebook – http://Facebook.com/hotlightgirlchloe then go to your nearest Krispy Kreme branch, present your coupon, flip your finger (not the bad one) marked with indelible ink and enjoy a free Krispy Kreme Orange You Glad Chiller.

So yeah, When In Manila (had to say that) on May 10, don’t forget to cast your vote for the people who will best govern the Philippines to make it a better place to live in. Then, do come to Krispy Kreme where you can get rewarded for your right to vote!
