WATCH: Aljon Mendoza receives YouTube Silver Play Button

Aljon Mendoza celebrated back-to-back milestones on his new vlog: learning how to swim and receiving his YouTube Silver Play Button! 

After being on hiatus for four months, the RISE artist finally uploaded a new video today, May 30, where he took his fans to his swimming lessons at a sports center in Quezon City.

In the vlog, Aljon shared some trivia about why he decided to finally take formal swimming lessons at 20 years old.

"Noong bata ako, nakatira kami sa tabi ng sapa tapos dalawang beses na akong nalunod sa sapa na 'yun. And mahilig din kasi ako manghuli ng isda noong bata ako so lagi akong andoon ako sa gilid-gilid," he recalled.

"Noong nalaman ng tatay ko 'yun, tinuruan niya ako mag-swimming pero hindi pa proper talaga," he added.

Aljon then showed off the different strokes he’s learned from his coaches as part of his newly acquire skill. 

Towards the latter part of the vlog, the "Viral Scandal" actor also did an unboxing of his Silver Play Button which he was awarded for garnering over 100 thousand subscribers on YouTube.

Aljon then thanked his "charmers" for helping him reach this milestone. "Sobrang happy ko, guys. First time ko makahawak nito," he gushed. "I just want to say thank you sa inyong lahat, 100 thousand strong na charmers. Maraming, maraming salamat sa pagsuporta sa vlogs ko, sa panonood, sa pag-abang ng bago kong contents. And thank you rin sa YouTube dahil binigyan niyo ako ng Silver Play Button," he added.
