Q: Hey Saab! My boyfriend is about to go work abroad. I was wondering what good gift should I get him since I won’t see him physically for 3 years? ❤️ Nica
A: Ooooh maybe something to help you stay in touch? Have you been together for a long time? Get him a laptop. Haha!! Or a phone. Gadgets are always a fun gift to receive. Kung kaya ng budget, I think it’s both practical and it makes up for many physical gifts that you’ll end up shipping to him and paying a lot, too. IDK! I’m not good with sentimental gifts huhu I like giving gadgets and toys. Pero kung bago palang kayo and may possibility na mag-break kayo, wag mong bibigyan ng mahal na bagay ha!!! Hahaha!!

Q: What’s your say on long distance relationships?
A: I personally can’t because I like physical lambing :( I’ve got a lot of respect for those who can make it work!

Q: I’m planning to visit Cup Fiction for my birthday this Feb! What coffee and food you recommend for first timers? Thanks! I’m so excited! <3
A: Oh wow yayyy!! Get the cortado (coffee) and The Dark Knight Rice (champorado) hehe :) ENJOY and I hope to bump into you! Advanced happy birthday!

Q: Saab, how to sing properly po? My fam says I have a potential in singing but then I just find my voice too chill kahit nagbibirit na ako with all my feelings haha.
A: I have no formal training, my voice is not pang-birit. Hahaha! I just know what sounds good and what doesn’t. I find that I sing better when I do vocal exercises. You can find those on YouTube :) You’ll look and sounds really silly when you’re doing them. Enjoy!

Q: Hi Saab! This may be private but how do you do your taxes? Do you do it yourself or may accountant ka? I ask bc I’m also not a regular office girl like you & taxes are stressing me out huhuhu
A: Omg I always say: they should really teach this stuff in high school. As a Creative Writing graduate, we weren’t required to study Accounting. I. Am. Still. Learning. Just yesterday I was filling up a form and I asked my mom, “Am I self-employed or am I an employee of FrancisM Artists Management, Inc. (her management company)?” Girl, 2009 pa pala ako registered as a business. Last year I changed my business name to Maria Isabella Simone Magalona BACARRO. Heehee. Wala lang. Anyway, my mom has accountants to take care of her talents’ finances. So I just sign documents and pay my taxes through the BPI online app monthly and quarterly. I would be so lost without our accountants. But I know there are short courses you can take? God, it all seems so complicated. Good luck!!

Q: Hi Saab! I was wondering if you’re looking for interns lol it’s been my dream to work with you :-)
A: I really would but I can’t manage anybody talaga until I learn to manage myself huhu

Q: Are you an Eraserheads fan? What’s your favorite song?
A: NAMAN!! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm ang hirap. I guess Wishing Wells

Q: SUPER PANATIX PO AQ NINYO NI JIM MYGAD. 😭💞 (Since u posted his wedding vows, I’ve been showing it to my friends randomly & grabe LAHT naiyak like me!?) When & how did you realize you loved Jim? ☺
A: Hehehe thank you!!! Naku dapat ata FAQ na ito. Haha! You can go through my Ask Saab section, I’m pretty sure I tackled this one many times already hehe :) I think my answer differs each time. I can’t pinpoint an exact moment but it’s the fact that he is the perfect mixture of strict and lambing when I’m being a brat. Sometimes he won’t stand for it and he’ll tell me off, other times he’ll call my bluff and make me lambing because he knows that’s all I’m looking for.

Q: Hi Saab! What’s your favourite summer scent?
A: When rain hits very hot pavement

Q: Hi Saab! Do you have any tips for planning a wedding? Budgeting, location, etc. :)
A: Book location (church, reception) and catering first. Have it out-of-town if you want to minimize your guest list. Sit down and plan with your fiancé at least once-a-week so he’s involved and can help you make decisions :)

Q: Hi, Saab! I really like your “Vader” Sweatshirt! Can i have it? :( lol kidding!
A: Hahaha how straightforward! I would, but I really like it too huhu

Q: When are you having another episode of domestic dispute? 😃😍
A: I’m thinking of discontinuing it because I feel like the name might be misconstrued as glorifying domestic violence?? IDK. Maybe a “rebranding” is in order.

Q: Hello Saab! First, I want to say that you and Jim are seriously goals! Haha and I love you!!! Seriously, you inspire me to be a strong, independent woman.
Okay here goes: I’m not really a music person. I rarely listen to music because I feel so overwhelmed. Like how I feel after reading a good book or watching a good movie? Pero pag sa music mas overwhelmed ako kasi ilang minutes tapos too-

A: Thank you!!! But what happened to your question??

Q: Ok character limit so here goes the summary na lang!! Pls recommend a few songs for each genre you like! Or bands (local and int’l) to check out. Also, how to become a music person? or at least not get overwhelmed by music?Huhu I also wanna learn how to play an instrument but I’m in my early 20s and have 0 idea on music/terms/etc. canteventell if sintunado yonginstrumentornot plshelpthanks! <3
A: Oooooh okay!! How to become a music person? I don’t think I can teach that!! My dad had a huge music collection so I listened to a lot of his influences growing up. I suggest you go to some gigs and see if you like what you hear. Here are some links to some of my faorite local bands to get you started:
Sandwich
Pupil
Pedicab
Ang Bandang Shirley
Oh! Flamingo
Autotelic
She’s Only Sixteen
Super dami pa but yan na muna for now hihi oh, and yeah, siyempre Cheats rin.

Q: Hi Saab where are you hosting your website? Sa WordPress ka ba bumili ng .com? Is this blog even under WordPress hahaha
A: WordPress.org ang platform, GoDaddy ang URL, Dreamhost ang hosting :)

Q: Kathniel or Jadine?
A: Naku hindi ako nanonood ng TV huhu

Q: Who do you think is prettier? Kathryn or Nadine? Haha!
A: They look very similar!! Both very pretty girls!

Q: SpellSaab app that lets us stay updated and connected with you. Like, get notifs from the app everytime you have a new post on your blog. Also, a “Get The Look” chorva for you #ootd. Mga ganon!! <3
A: Ay gusto ko yan! Pag-aralan ko nga. LEL

♥,
Saab

    Ang tagalog term yata for that is “alimuom”.
    some say you’d get a stomachache if you smell it for too long.
