i am fortunate to have such very good friends;
Kate Evangelista and I met when we both ended up in the same World Masterpieces class in gradschool. These last couple of months, I’ve not only gotten to know her as a talented storyteller and writer, but as a really good friend and fellow shoe-aholic. :) A few days ago, she sent me a message and told me to check out the movies/music/miscellaneous section of her official website. I was...

For my girls, Cyn and Marie— This is what we will do. You will visit me someday, and on a Friday night we will go out to the bay, have dinner and sit with coffee and tea, a sandwich that costs perhaps, a little too much for simple ham and cheese with lettuce. There will be a lot of us, so that my parents do not worry; maybe my brother and his friends at another table, maybe just us plus...
There are some things — some events, that you just have to remember because these are the moments where you look the universe straight in the eye and say: This. This is me making my mark. It’s not much right now, but you just wait. You just wait and see.
Mag:net Katipunan’s Acoustic Night | August 12, 2010. First real gig for myself and Aiza Abeja (the lovely girl in the second photo, visit her Tumblr). She’s a real sweetheart with an incredible voice.

livethelife: today, tomorrow, this week, if you have a minute, encourage someone. cheer someone on. boost someone back up. remind that person of all that she is and all that she will be. your encouragement means more than you might ever know.
this made me happy today ♥
I like fairytale-inspired things. Masquerade balls, in particular, were something I would daydream about as a child. About a month ago, my cousin contacted me about working on a project for a client of hers. Thea’s an events planner/coordinator and she was conceptualizing on a masquerade-themed debut (since said client’s birthday falls short of Halloween). Now, in the Philippines,...

I’m really glad that I took the time to take these two photos from the first gig I ever did. This was earlier this year, back in March. Musicians and music-lovers alike took part in the Raising Ravi Benefit Bar Tour, which aimed to promote Kawasaki Disease Awareness in Manila.

i wish this had occurred to me earlier;
It’s a little bit past 8:30 in the evening at my end of the globe and it crossed my mind that it’ll still be October 20 in other countries tomorrow. I’ve already worn the one purple shirt in my warddrobe. So I figured I’d do this until the time finally changed to show 00:00, 10-21-2010 in every clock across the world.
A NOTE: The text on the bottom of the picture above originally read ‘honors’ instead of ‘remembers’. I made this change because when we ‘honor’ people, it denotes respect, admiration and/or esteem. While I join the community in paying homage to these six boys, I cannot bring myself to link ‘honor’ with the loss of such unique and beautiful...
