Q: Do you play any musical instruments? :)
A: I took drum lessons when I was 17 under Yamaha. I like to think I’m a fucking amazing drummer. But I can’t lie. I’m not. HAHA. When I finally get myself virtual drums and start practising everyday I bet I’d be great through. I’m a natural because I used to drum on my lap during my dad’s recordings when I was around 4 years old and my thighs would turn red. I really want a drum kit but no place to keep it. :(

Q: What’s your fave lippie for red, nude, and pink?
A: As of the moment: MAC Chili for red, Too Faced Melted Nude or MAC Yash for nude, no pink right now.. I haven’t used pink in a really long time. But I like LA Splash’s Lip Couture in Forbidden. Also MAC Girl About Town.

Q: Hi Saab! What camera do you use?
A: Sony NEX 5N but I am getting an upgrade soon :)

Q: Hi! I read your post abt Too Faced Lipstick. I think you can find it at www.facebook.com/mupstore and in their store in QC. Hope that helps! :)
A: Thanks :)

Q: Anong advice mo sa mga victim ng bullying?
A: Talk to your parents, teachers, or another adult that you trust. Never retaliate. Just inhale, exhale, and go on with your life. You’re probably living a more interesting life than the bully that’s why he/she is obsessed with you. LOL. Here’s more literature on the topic: http://www.helpguide.org/articles/abuse/dealing-with-bullying.htm

Q: Hiii Saab!!! Can you share naman lovestory nyo ni Jim para kiligin kami. Hehe
A: Hahahaha okay maybe I’ll do that someday :))))

Q: First of all, I love your blog and how laid back you are!!! Anyway, how do you maintain your flawless skin? Can you share some of skincare tips?
A: Thank you!! I only started taking care of my skin recently. I use Kiehl’s products for moisturizing and toning. I can’t say it enough: always wash your face before going to bed!:) Make sure to remove your makeup thoroughly!

Q: Hi Ate Saab! You’re my fav blogger! :) More travel posts/blogs soon please ♥
A: Okay!!

Q: Hi Ate! Pwede ka ba magpost ng vid or photos about what’s inside your bag? or your room? :) Please thank you!
A: Okay will write that on my to-do list!

Q: best young adult book?
A: OMG. Hirap naman. Hmmm.. I think Looking For Alaska by John Green is a really good read for young adults.

Q: Hey Saab! Whats your skin and hair routine?
A: At night I remove my makeup, use toner to make sure it’s really clean, put midnight recovery concentrate from Kiehl’s all over my face and neck. When I wake up, I wash my face again and put moisturizer and sunscreen on my face. For my hair, I just use shampoo and conditioner!:)

Q: Hi Saab, what degree did you take up in college? :)
A: BFA Creative Writing :)

Q: Hi Saab, how did you get over your first love? Me and my boyfriend of 3.5 years broke up and I feel so lost.
A: Oh dear.. I’m so sorry you feel this way. I ended up eventually talking to my first love from time to time when things blew over and we weren’t angry at each other anymore. There was some flirting in between relationships but overall we kept our conversations short and appropriate. The thing is, I’m really lucky my first love was a very decent person. He was not the best boyfriend as I was not the best girlfriend either. He and I kind of grew up together because we fell in love at 17 when we were only discovering ourselves and what we wanted to be. We tried to date again after a while but we both agreed it was totally weird – like dating your sibling. There is absolutely no hurt between us and he is still in my life. Of course not everyone is as lucky and I can’t really tell you how to get over your first love because it will be different for everyone. But I will say, you need to retract some of that love you have for him and give it to yourself for now. Don’t do anything drastic, it will be worth it when you look back at it and only remember the good memories.

Q: who’s older? unna or chelo? tnx
A: My ate Unna is turning 32 next month. Jim’s little sister Chelo is turning 26 in July.

Q: may haters ka din ba?
A: Parang wala naman. Haha.

Q: hi saab where do you usually buy clothes i mean which brand?
A: Topshop, mostly. I like the size and quality!

Q: Hi Saab! When’s your next video of “Our Online Thing” with Lauren? I SO LOVE YOU HUUU
A: Hahaha ewan ko na!!

Q: hi! I love Cheats! My genre is Indie too. Just wanna know where can I download your songs?
A: You may download them for free over at Amplify.ph :)

Q: How tall Arkin na???/ hihi
A: He is maybe an inch taller than me :( Probably 5’4″ and he is 11 years younger than me D:

Q: Aware ka ba na madaming nagsuicide sa states kasi na-cyberbullying sila sa ask.fm? Ages 12-16. Na bully ka ba dati?
A: Hi! Yes, I got bullied a lot on my question box (way before ask.fm existed) but I didn’t let it affect me too much. These anonymous forums are not for everyone. It’s sad that people use it to torture others.

    I remember someone in ask.fm got bullied just because she typed “soak on a water” instead of “soak in the water”. Can’t people say things in nicest ways? #whogoat
