Cinemalaya’s #Y Teaser Trailer

For the past few months, my little brother Elmo has been filming an indie scene for Cinemalaya. Watching the teaser trailer makes me realize he is not so little anymore. Hahaha (but really – huhuhu) The Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition is turning 10 years old this year as it opens on August 1-10,…

Tintin Shop in Manila!

I grew up reading a lot of comics – Archie, Garfield, Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes just to name a few. They were all mostly from my grandmother’s collection of coffee table books. I looked forward to Sundays because The Philippine Star had a special Sunday Comics section! After reading, we’d use them to cover our…

Then famous brand LeSportsac started making bags with the kawaii Japanese-inspired characters on it and everyone I knew wanted one! Of course I thought the designs were cute but I never bothered to research about the artist behind the brand. I got…

Sepunks!!!

We call our little group Sepunks. It’s derived from SepAnx, the short term used for Separation Anxiety. It’s that anxious feeling you get when you are separated from something or someone. K, that was pretty self-explanatory. Some of us got together last Thursday to celebrate Jim and my engagement! We brought out the sake and…

Ipanema’s Sole To Goal: Watch The FIFA World Cup LIVE!

I really enjoyed playing futsal (indoor soccer) in high school and college. I even had plans of training and joining the actual women’s football team in Ateneo. I enjoyed playing it but I wasn’t an exceptional player. Watching football players, both men and women, just really fascinated me. The precision of their kicks, their eye…
