Question: Hello Saab! So happy to see this box active again! :D I love reading books but motherhood made me so busy I haven’t read one in 3 yrs. Any book that can help me get back on track? Thanks! xxo
Answer: Hello! Glad to hear you’re reading again! I would suggest an inspiring autobiography like Amy Poehler’s Yes Please or a funny one like Amy Schumer’s The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo. It’s like you’re just making chika with a friend :)
Question: Hi Saab! Do you use filters in Lightroom? If yes, where do you get them? Thanks. xo
Answer: Yes, I bought a couple from VSCO :)
Question: Air dry or towel dry
Answer: Towel dry THEN air dry
Question: Hi Saab,
I am no longer receiving email notifications from your blog. Did you turn off email subscription of your blog? Thank you.
God bless you always
Answer: Hi Chester,
I had no idea I was sending out e-mail notifications before!! I’ll figure it out and try to put it back! Thanks!
Question: Where in Japan did you buy your Adidas Superstar, the one with the blue and red stripes? Is it cheaper there? Sa Japan mo nga ba talaga nabili? Am I right? Huhu i<3u
Answer: Maxx gave them to me as a gift and I think she bought it in Japan.
Question: Hi Saab! Have you already met Janella? What can say about her? I love your blog btw! :)
Answer: Yes, once, when I went to ASAP for a Christmas thing. She was just about to work with Elmo and she was very shy and seemed to be an introvert. We were introduced but we didn’t talk. Thanks!
Question: What’s your favorite song from Elmo’s album? :)
Answer: Super LSS with Kay Dali. Hahaha!
Question: how’s your feeling of Maxene getting married? sa japan dn pla nagproposed like ung inyo ni jim :)
Answer: I’m SO excited for her. Very happy that she found someone like Robby. He is the nicest guy and he is obviously head over heels for her. I always told her she shouldn’t settle for anything less ;)
Question: I’m 28 now. Why is everyone so sure of everything? Why am I so terrified of making decisions while everybody is breezing through adulthood? Is it just me overthinking? HELP. :(
Answer: GIRL. I feel you. I don’t think anybody is sure of anything. I’m also 28 and still figuring out how to plan my meals and pay bills on time. I still don’t know what line of work I want to focus on. Should I go back to acting? Should I stick with the band? Should I just focus on my blog? Everyday is a learning experience. I find that meditation helps me relax. Give it a try: calm.com.
Question: I feel like at my age-28, I have not accomplished as much as my friends. I suffered a bout of depression. I wanna make bawi pero I feel like wala na, di na makakahabol. Advice please?
Answer: THE POWER OF NOW — there is absolutely nothing you can do about the past. Only focus on today. Don’t wait for the future. What can you do today? Do it. Make it. Anxiety and doubt will only prolong your suffering. Although, take note that suffering is an illusion. Accept what is and move forward. OMG ang daming hanash. Hahhaha anyway, BASTA SABI NGA NG NIKE, “JUST DO IT.”
Question: Nakikipagbaitan ka ba with your siblings’ exes or deadma if you meet at an event?
Answer: Depends on the ex. I’m still very good friends with some of them. May iba though na I just pretend not to see because they’re kind of awful. Teehee.
Question: Hi Saab! I hope you come to open and welcome again Internships this 2017☺ omg if u just knew how much I would love to learn and work with you :) – CJL
Answer: I tried and failed with my interns. I just can’t delegate and I’m too shy to ask them to do stuff for me. It’s really something I need to learn — how to manage people. I always want to make sure they’re comfy, or that they’re having fun. So I overthink and just end up not calling them back for another meeting because I don’t get anything done. Hay juskolord. May workshop ba ang “how to manage people when you’re an introvert” ganern? Waahh I promise to work on it
Question: Do you watch Daria? What do you think of the show?
Answer: Yes, back in the 90s. I rewatched everything again recently though. Still kicks ass. I had The Daria Diaries (a book) growing up and I was obsessed with it. It was so smart and funny. Thanks to my parents for being super cool and owning it. It wasn’t very appropriate for a 10-year-old. Haha!
Question: My bf for 4 yrs broke up with me. Sabi nya nagising lang daw sya one day wala na syang feelings for me. Almost 5mos na, but Im still broken while he is already going out with someone. Bakit ganun? :(
Answer: Oh wow, that sucks. I’m sorry to hear that. Walang alarm, walang anything, goodbye nalang bigla? But look on the bright side: it could have been longer. At least now you’re free of someone who doesn’t love you back.
Question: Do you remember your Music Club post about Marathon by Tennis? Thanks for that! I’m super in love with Tennis! Para akong hinehele in an adult way. Does that make sense? Hehe!
Answer: Yes, I know exactly what you mean! You’re welcome :)
Question: Hi Saaby! You have been my girl crush since forever. 😊 I’m planning to pass by Cup Fiction to try it and to support you! Is there any chance that I can catch you there? I really want to meet you. :)
Answer: Yay!! Thank you so much! I try to be there as much as I can, especially when there are events. But I’m usually there Tuesday mornings for our weekly meetings :)
Question: Hi Saab! Maxx and Rob got engaged! How did it happen? Make kwento naman! Did all of you know he was gonna pop the question during their Japan trip? Hehe so happy for her. ♥️ – D
Answer: I’ll do a “Spell Saab exclusive” (LOL) — I’ll interview Maxx about it cos she should be the one to tell you what happened!! Hehe. My mom called me the day before and let me know that Rob was about to ask Maxx. He had asked for my mom’s permission a week prior and she kept it a secret!! Haha.
Question: Hi Saab, i lived in Dubai and i want to order linya linya tshirt. Magbabakasyon ako sa April, how many days ung delivery? Pampanga Area po. :) Thank you!
Answer: Hello! That’s great! I think out-of-town deliveries shouldn’t take more than 3 days. You can contact them thru their Facebook page (linyalinyaph) for any questions :)
Question: Saaaaab!! Nagssubscribe ka ba sa “What’s meant to be will find a way.”? :)
Answer: Hmm.. I think you shouldn’t just wait – YOU should find a way and see for yourself if it’s meant to be. I do believe that everything happens for a reason.
Question: hi Saab! does the book “the life changing magic of tidying up” really helpful? i want it so bad but its no to avail here in the province hehe. btw, I love you, and you and Jim are my 4evah OTP :)
Answer: Yes, I think it helped affirm my “throw away everything” approach. Haha. I’m not a sentimental person. What province are you from? I hope you find a way to read the book :)
