No, I did not just land. I’ve actually been in town a good full week, been to the beach and then some, before I had this fantastic girls weekend. Started things off with a wine night celebrating big movements in some of the ladies I know. Rain or shine wine night hosted by Jo Weise […]

Joey on Jumimo

Carefree. That’s who I am whenever I’m at the beach. I just let my hair down, wear my pair of sunnies, keep my hands free of anything and just be there. I’m such a beach girl. The sea, the sun and the sand seems to be my cure for anything. My pair of sunglasses, my sunblock […]

“For folks who really know me and how I celebrate my birthdays, this year offered a colossal difference to how I went about my special day. Moving to a new place (a different country) with no friends and family, I had to make an effort to fashion the occasion to be less depressing than one […]

After filial responsibilities for a nation’s tradition to spend time and celebrate Todos los Santos at the cemetery, I dashed off to mark the holiday in a more Western way by 12:01. Halloween party at Black Market. Backtracking to 2 days ago, “Costumes K!” — a friend’s text message. I was, like, WHUT. How was […]

Echoing in a hollow space between cement and tin roof, fireworks crackle at 5am. Signaling the start of the day’s festivities. We are a country of fiestas, after all. Shuffling of feet and a growing sound of chatter heard from outside my window, it’s starting. And I’m awake. There’s a sense of dread building in […]

Adidas Originals: Errbody all in, #UniteAllOriginals

Seemingly surfacing in an air chamber of a sempiternal synthetic cave, I found myself warming the slick white couch at Club Haze on a rainy Saturday night — still partial to darkness and positively coaxed by the promise of hip-hop. It was one of them Adidas Originals parties, after all. #UniteAllOriginals The idea of refusing […]

More than two weeks ago, shortly after I landed, I updated a few of my SocMed accounts with a partial photo of a feature that carried a caption that stated, “Manila welcomed me with coffee and a feature on Manila Bulletin’s Style Weekend ♥ oh yea, and traffic. Great to be back!” It certainly took […]

Catapulted back to a time when firsts are fresh and school is cool. Clutching metal lunchboxes and worrying about who you’ll sit next to in the school bus, life seemed larger and mysterious and exciting at that time. In a lot of ways, it still is. Granted you still see it through a child’s eye. […]
