#StarWarsXFoldedandHung was launched on Saturday, December 6th at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall. Like the Kawaii Marvel collection from last year, Folded and Hung has collaborated with Star Wars™ to create a futuristic collection for this year.

Folded and Hung’s President, Ronald Pineda, was called onto the stage to happily announce that the show was about to start!

They then introduced Folded and Hung‘s celebrity endorsers.

Last but not least, introduced was Folded and Hung‘s star of the night; Elmo Magalona.

(Side note: Yes, I mentally freaked out because of the storm troopers)IMG_4891.JPGIMG_4892.JPG

They brought out all the models and endorsers onto the stage to have a photo op and to have a sneaky #groufie. #cool

There was a really big Lego™ Darth Vader that I obviously didn’t get to take a picture of. (I really need to get used to taking pictures.)

Thank you so much to Folded and Hung for collaborating with Star Wars and for making the dopest clothing pieces!

FOUR Album Launch

Last Saturday, November 22nd, was the FOUR Album Launch held at Eton Centris Walk.

Saying it was great would be an understatement. It was 1000000x greater than great. I met more of my online friends, met up with my older online friends, and danced along to some of the songs from the album.

If you’re a One Direction fan and you’ve never been to a One Direction fan event, then you’re clearly missing out.

After the event, most of the fam had to go (aw), and I was left with Fides, Angel, Paola, and Disney. We had dinner at Pancake House like what Angel and I did last year, so it was fun.

The event consisted of booths, games, live performances, and raffles. Sadly, I didn’t win anything, but that’s alright. I got a photo with the Harry standee anyway, so life is good.

I had so much fun and I wish some of my other friends could come (*cough* Marty, Jeanne, Nicole, and Angela *cough*), but it was all good. There’s always next time.

I also met some of my friends, but didn’t get to take pictures with them (*cough* Rona, Robert, Angel, Jam, Nina, Tonie, Haylee, and Jea). 🙁

Happy Helloween

What do you say when you want to greet somebody and at the same time wish them a good spooky day?

 

HAPPY HELLOWEEN!!!

 

This post is waaay overdue, and I apologize for that. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have enough time to write, because let’s be real– I’ve had loads of time to write. Apologies aside, here’s my very happy Halloween!

 

28TH OF OCTOBER;

I spent a whole day with my batchmates at the mall going shopping, eating, more shopping, and even more eating.

TOPSHOP IS MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH. Dress: Topshop, Flannel: H&M, Shoes: Palladium
IMG_4207.JPG
We went ice skating, which resulted in me getting blisters from getting the wrong size, and getting pissed off from slipping and sliding. (I was wearing a dress.) I ended up leaving the rink after 20 minutes of holding onto the ledge, trying to get out. See picture below;

IMG_4548-1.JPG

IMG_4209.JPG
We then ate at Shakey’s because it was the only restaurant available that could fit us all. We were eleven, plus my Friend Cheska’s mom hahaha! (We were also just craving for pizza, so..)

 

30TH OF OCTOBER;

 

I spent a total of four days at my best friend Yanni’s place, then literally regretted it afterwards because I ate way too much. :///// (I still stayed though hehe <3)

IMG_4547-0.JPG
I used a monopod for the first time and got fascinated with it, so I decided to take a, somewhat candid shot of Yanni and I having a movie marathon in bed.

 

31ST OF OCTOBER;

TELL ‘EM THAT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY

TELL ‘EM THAT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY

TELL ‘EM THAT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY

WHEN I PARTY LIKE THAAAAT

1ST OF NOVEMBER;

 

The next day, Yanni’s cousins came over again and we went bowling like we did every single night, but here’s a picture for your entertainment;

2ND OF NOVEMBER;

 

I only planned on staying at Yanni’s ’til Saturday, but my mom couldn’t pick me up that night so I had to sleep over again. Not that I complained or anything, because I was anything but sad!

 

Anyway, you can tell I had quite a great birthday week, and yes, I really did. I’m so thankful to have these people in my life and I could never ask for better.

 

Thank you again to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I love you. <3

Last Saturday was Francis M’s birthday, and like we normally do, we held our annual FrancisM birthday concert. And for this year, Digital Photographer Philippines decided to showcase his amazing pictures, because he was one of DPP’s first members! Both the exhibit and the concert were held at SM Aura!

 

I actually forgot to take pictures throughout the night, but here are a few. Enjoy!

Starships

Last weekend, I went to Punta Fuego in Batangas with Yanni and her family for her brother Migo’s birthday. I love the beach a lot, so I was really happy that they invited me!

The trip consisted of guitar playing, inside jokes, and lots and lots of food. Oh, and one million pictures at the beach. Here are some of them.

#FinallyA5SOSAlbumLaunch

This post was long overdue, and I sincerely apologize for the delay. Two Sundays ago, July 20, was the #FinallyA5SOSAlbumLaunch hosted by the 5 Seconds of Summer Philippines Street Team at the Glorietta 5 Activity Center. It was definitely a lot of fun, and there were loads of cool people! I arrived at around 12:00 PM just because we didn’t want to go so early. I got there and met up with my friend Gionna who was actually waiting for another friend of ours, Alex. When we both went to eat first, Gionna told us about her 5SOS concert experience when she was in America (not sure what state, though), and she said that there was actually loads more people at this album launch then at the concert itself, which was so cool because it’s so nice knowing that a lot of people have really good music taste! (I’m so funny.)

This was the said surprise that 5SOS Philippines promised us. I was so disappointed when I found out it was a video and not a videochat…. I’m still really happy that they found the time to actually send us a video!!!
20140729-221733-80253324.jpg
By the end of the event, they started giving out f5SOS cupcakes which looked darn good, but I didn’t get one simply because I don’t really like cupcakes.

7 Things To Do During a Power Shortage

The electricity has gone back just a few minutes ago, and I’m thankful for that. Power shortages suck—especially when it’s hot. It’s dull, boring, and extremely annoying. Like earlier today I was just about to watch a video on YouTube, but then my electric fan suddenly stopped. When you’re fan stops turning, you know the deal.

 

Luckily, I’ve come here prepared with a list of seven (not ten, not five, but SEVEN) things to do during a power shortage so that you, too, are prepared. You’re welcome.

 

  1. Take a shower. Right when I noticed there was a brownout, I stepped outside my room, grabbed my towel, and headed on over to the bathroom. Today is a pretty warm day, and it’s wet season. Where is the rain when I need it?!
  2. Read. Comic books, newspaper articles, magazines, fanfiction, novels, science fiction; it doesn’t matter what you read, as long as you gain knowledge and information about something and/or someone.
  3. Write. There’s something about writing that always makes me feel relaxed and comfortable. You can write about anything, from what you’re doing, to what you’re eating, to what you’re wearing. Anything. Just be creative and original.
  4. Play an instrument. Flute, recorder, violin, acoustic/electric guitar, drums, bass, piano, keyboard, harp, whatever. Playing an instrument is another way to keep your mind off things.
  5. Play games. Not just the ones on your phone like Flappy Bird or Piano Tiles, but like Sudoku and Crossword Puzzles. Those games are fun too, don’t you think?
  6. Play sports. Sports are fun—and healthy. Fitness is important in your health, so don’t always neglect it.
  7. Go outside. Unless it’s raining.. But if it isn’t, then you can take a walk, hang out with your friends, meet new people; the possibilities are endless. You can do so much just by going outside!

 

I hope I helped you get over how much it sucks to be going through a black/brownout. Have fun!
