The Cuyonons finally got their break in the vlogging scene after 28-year-old Aaron Arrevado from Araceli town posted his funny Cuyonon-speaking video about an incident on washing dishes on social media.
The Facebook and YouTube posts entitled “Hugasin” drew a lot of attention mostly from Cuyonons all over the world, reaching almost 4,000 views within four days of posting with a lot of shares and reactions.
“Gusto ko po ipakita na di dapat kinakahiya yung pagiging Cuyonon, dapat maging proud po dahil kaya din po nating gawin yung mga bagay na kaya ng iba, kaya din po ng mga Cuyonon ang magpasaya ng ibang tao sa pamamagitan ng Vlog,” Arrevado said.
He started producing vlogs since September 2019, but it was this year that he continued creating content featuring island lifestyle. His other vlogs are “Bayad” and “load”.
Arrevado was born and raised in Araceli with a true blue Cuyonon mother and a Cebuano father. He is a Civil Engineering graduate from Palawan State University, still single and is currently connected with the Department of Public Works and Highways-Roxas, Palawan office.
“Hanggang ngayon di pa din ako makapaniwala na madaming Cuyonon ang nanood ng video ko, lutang pa din ako, kasi di ko po talaga expect na mangyayari yun, halos lahat ng comments ng mga Cuyonon pinangbabasa ko, natutuwa ako sa feedback po kasi pati sila nakangiti at nakakatawa dahil sa nakaka-relate sila sa content ng mga video ko,” Arrevado said in an exclusive interview with Palawan Daily News.
His Facebook page “Aaaron G.Arrevado” is already earning due to the views of his vlogs, but his YouTube channel still needs more following before he could start monetizing it. He is also doing some promo and giveaway to all his followers that will become a top fan.
“Di ko naman po talaga alam na magkakapera sa vlog o sumikat, sadyang katuwaan lang namin sa bahay ang mga yun, pero dahil sa request na din ng ibang mga kababayan baka magtuloy-tuloy na akong gumawa,” Arrevado said.
