Tattoo Win

A frequently asked question from my readers: what tattoos do I have and what do they mean? So here’s a post dedicated to explaining myself and my tattoos. Our parents told us we had to wait until we were 18 to get tattoos. You don’t hear that often because the usual parental guide to getting…

Music Club: Tennis – Marathon

Sorry for skipping a week (or two?) of Music Club!! I’m still doing all my favorite summer-perfect songs. It is so hot I am melting as I type this. This one is an oldie but goodie. Part of Tennis’ debut album Cape Dory back in 2011, Marathon remains to be my favorite song of theirs….

Jim & Saab Save The World: Wedding Souvenirs

I had a couple of things in mind when I was thinking of what to give our guests to thank them for celebrating our special day with us: What would I like to receive as a wedding guest? For example, I didn’t want it to be a framed photo of Jim & I because I personally wouldn’t…

Jim & Saab Save The World: Save The Date

Jim and I both believe that love can save the world. We’re doing just that on January 24th by tying the knot! Our beautiful Save The Date was designed and illustrated by Marvel Comics illustrator, creator of X-men’s Bishop, and my dad’s friend Whilce Portacio. Jim & I are so thankful he gratuitously created this…

EAT, BUY, TRY: Mrs. Graham’s

Hey guys, I’m happy to announce that my segment Sabi ni Saab (lol) is back for another season of Taste Buddies! Fun!! So I had my first taping day last Friday and one of the locations we checked out was Mrs. Graham’s on Sct. Rallos st. QC, a bakery that specializes in macarons! It’s such a cute and…

Celebrate #SariSaringHappiness Day!

Is there anything more symbolic of a Pinoy Christmas than a parol? After a brief research, I found out that the Christmas parol is actually distinctly Filipino. It’s pretty hard to tell if anything is “truly ours” (a.k.a. sariling atin) because of our country’s history. Our traditions are usually a mixture of others’ – mostly…

Brixton Brats

I had lunch with my crazy best friend Lauren yesterday. She asked me where I wanted to eat somewhere in between us. Between us happened to be Kapitolyo and since I’ve been meaning to check out my friend Ge Mapa‘s new washi tape exhibit at Heima Brixton st., I suggested the healthy vegetarian restaurant right…

Musicalligraphy: Leave Your Lover by Sam Smith

Today’s musicalligraphy (where I practice my calligraphy skills using song lyrics) is brought to you by the wonderful Sam Smith. Leave Your Lover is such a beautiful song – one of many from his amazing debut album. I can’t believe this guy is 22. We sit in bars and raise our drinks to growing old…

Musicalligraphy: Snap Out Of It by Arctic Monkeys

You know my daily song choices? Well instead of using YouTube videos to share them on my blog, I think I’ll practice my calligraphy. I hope you enjoy and I do hope I progress as time goes by! Hooray for new hobbies! I’m seriously just a newbie at this so please have mercy. Today’s song…
