Another Photoshoot with Patty M =)

Last Saturday, though rainy and wild-wild to commute, I braved my way to Katipunan via MRT-LRT2 (then tric) for another shoot with my model-turned-photographer Patty Mendoza. =) We held the shoot indoors--and still got really nice results! =)

Both beautiful photos above are by Patty, the clothes are from another online shop: Poisonberry ( and I provided for the accessories. Patty and I also took charge of styling the models, which I find really really cool and fun. I really wanted to work for a magazine...and thanks to technology and the creativity-bursting young generation--I get to do magazine-stuff related to my business! =) Super fun!

Another best part in having photo shoots is meeting new interesting people. =) Pic above--I was sandwiched by Ate Arnina and Ate Louise--our M…

Smells Like School Spirit

Oh finally I was able to blog here again!

My Explorer went (irritatingly) crazy the past few days, and I cant open my Multiply and Blogger--thus became more active with my FB! :D Hahaha! Anyway, last Thursday, UST Tigers finally entered the Final 4 again! It wasnt because we won against the UE game that day, but DLSU lost against NU on the first game! :D It was crazy---I dont want to cheer for the loss of another team, but they just paved way to our team to join the semis!!! Super excited!!!

For the game, I wore my deconstructed ONE FOR UST shirt I bought the previous match--where we sat beside the Yellow Jackets (ust's cheering squad). The PEP TALK brand of UST tees was there, and I just asked where they got their shirts, which turned out they have stocks with them that day--so I bought my own there and then! :) I really love it -- for just P250! :D Order yours at =) ---coz baby we are part of the Final 4 yo! :D Hahahah!

Anagon Collection Featured by Manila Times Students

Last Saturday, I went to Manila Times as invited by Nikka--a 3rd year college student of the said broadsheet's School of Journalism. :) The topic, according to Nikka, was on Young Achievers. I honestly feel I wasnt super qualified yet for this--but took this honor nonetheless because, as Ive said in my other blog: in order to materialize a goal, paninindigan ko na. I claimed the title, and so be it! :D Haha!

While in UST taking up journalism, I saw the Manila Times College Ad and thought that I also wanted to study there, since I think that being in the actual environment is good exposure.

I went to the Intramuros-based school by riding the Lawton bus till SM Manila, which wasnt opened yet so I stayed in Jollibee without ordering anything (hehe). I had with me my current fave and reliable violet soft-bag from Davao--filled with 2 sets of clothes that I will make the models wear during the show. Nikka picked me up from there, and we rode a taxi till her school (taxi fare reached a…


I will always pity my shoulders/back. When walking with my heavy-weight bagS slinging over my shoulders, I'll always imagine how one day this abuse will take effect in my body. Like how employees who are always in front of the computer will one day lose their 20/20 vision, or how manong/manang Xerox may one day get baog. (i just got this tidbit kanina from Cea, haha)

Anyway, last Monday, I held a photoshoot for my new clothes, accessories, and headdresses collection at the Ateneo campus--as organized by my model-turned photographer and hair-makeup artist Patty Mendoza. She invited her model and photographer friends Cy Bellarmino and Mark Tiu, while I texted CJ Alayon to model for me again --and there! A team of amateur "artists" taking advantage of the holiday (no classes = no people).

The call time was 9.30 am, and living far south means I have to allot around 2 hours to get to Katipunan. Thank God for trains, after getting off the bus to MRT Magallanes, I rode this (sup…

What to wear for a Christening

Last Saturday was super fun for me, it was my first time to become a Godmother! When I first heard about this, I asked my mom the appropriate outfit for such an occassion...

Me: Anong dapat suotin? Dapat white siguro noh?
Mom: Hindi naman kailangan white...
Me: Ay oo nga naman, pwede naman florals...basta first time ko to cacareerin ko na to! ;D


The baby is my "good friend Hazee"'s---a college classmate. We werent even in the same group in college, but in our senior year, we bonded over a coffee break at the UST Central Library's Reader's Cafe. Yup, a friendship that started over coffee (and love life sharing haha! ;D)

Years went by, and we only see each other on our class' BASAGAN--a random house-party of beer, random booze, videoke, and crazy moments that started on our 4th year college Christmas party. On the Third Season of Basagan, Hazel said that when I was drunk I started to call her "my good friend Hazee!" gazillions of times! :D It might be e…
