Thirsty Tuesdays

I can’t get the hang of reviewing all day in my room and doing just that. I used to go to events left and right, and you bet it’s not easy to wean oneself from events, especially when they’re good ones!

So after the review last Tuesday, I rushed to Luneta park and helped my friends set up for their opening for What the f Stop.

Weather was very fine that day.

Testing settings on the Illuminati-ish photo booth. That triangle fluorescent thingy is made by Marco Samson!

And the ribbon was cut!

Host for the night – Joey Alvero welcomed guests…

Say hi to Marion Kitazawa!

The Jensen Gomez Experience was there to perform. Amistad played also, but I left before they were on the stage.

Say hi to zeh boys. Prof Nes, Joe, and Ralph. You remember them from my La Union trip last year?

Congratulations to Alecks, Ame, Apple, Anna, and Marco for a very successful opening! After this gallery, I went to the Keg at the Fort Strip for the Hashtag Radio Tweetup. Saw some of Twestival people and even a celebrity there! It was a cool place to boot!

Marga a.k.a. @diskodiablo, tweeting while spinning…

Hashtag Team.

Caught a candid of the Chuckie Dreyfus (That’s Entertainment) @chuckiedreyfus while her wife @yendreyfus smiles at the camera. The two were so friendly!

Jason @jasondayrit and Charlene @takeoutsushi fresh from day’s work.

Poison of choice: Mojito. It was on buy one take one, and a little bit watered downed. But nevertheless, it feels good to meet old friends and new people. To more Thirsty Tuesdays!

Scene*ing at Cafe Clay

Went to my friends’ gallery project in Cafe Clay in Makati, and it was awesome! It’s packed full of people, cool photos, and of course chow and booze! I have to give it to Cafe Clay for being that hip place. I love the place!

Here are some of the (zoomed in) photos which were exhibited and sold in the gallery. Awesome work by students of the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. Check these out!

Kudos to my friends Ame, Joe, Ralph, Apple and their classmates, job well done indeed!

On me: Top by Switch; Shorts by Solo; Topsiders by SM Department Store.

Easter Sunday

I spent my Easter Day shooting children at Church at our very cute photo booth, coloring my hair, and meeting up with friends. One of the best Easters ever despite the Holy Week hasn’t been very friendly (i.e. weather, boredom, and again – the weather.)

I love shooting photographs of children. They’re very spontaneous, natural, and most of all – unpredictable! I wish I could stay for the next service, but I really want to have my hair colored and meet up with friends from UP – Jen and Rafael. We met up with Sheng afterwards. Oh it’s so fun having them around again!

Talikogenic!

Was able to finally try Army Navy and got fat again with the burger and the onion rings, and the burrito. Gawd I miss them so much! We should hang out in UP again, Killers!

I am a believer of our local artists here in the Philippines. And I am in constant search of events in the art scene where I can feature and share here in my blog how creative and artistic the Filipinos are. May 1, as the Philippines pauses to give tribute to the workers (or watch protests left and right in the streets, no offense meant) some of our local artists are planning a day (and night!) of celebrating art and the proletariat.

I really, really wanna come. But I’m afraid I have family matters to put first. So there might be artists who read my blog, or just a fan of Pinoy art, please do support our local art scene. I believe it is one of the Philippines’ last frontiers!

Earning from your Blog: A Blog & Soul Talk

The Blog & Soul is holding another session on April 30 to discuss what monetizing your blog really means. Included in the panel are veteran bloggers who earn from their blogs and representatives from advertising networks. We’re also trying to get business owners who have dealt with bloggers before (or are thinking of inviting bloggers) to attend, so we can discuss the expectations and responsibilities of each party.

Hope you see you on Saturday!

By the way, this event is FREE. You may tag along your blogger friends.

You may follow the Blog & Soul Movement through our Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Blog-and-Soul/197600493613487).

Please RSVP on this sheet (or if you can’t attend and you have questions for our speakers) : https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?hl=en&formkey=dFd3ZWhmVVkzMGxodmIwNG10ZGpCaGc6MQ#gid=0

It’s been just now that I confirmed that I will no longer have classes today and I am very glad I can go to this talk and learn more about blogging. C’mon, let’s not be hypocrite we all need income. But the question here is can we be credible bloggers at the same time earning from it?

I’m excited for this talk! For those who don’t know how to go here – it is in front of Greenbelt 1 in the Makati CBD, Thanks to Nina and Winston for the directions! See y’all there!!!!

J

P.S. Remember that this Talk is for FREE :)

Please help me!!!!

Joined some contests that need YOUR VOTE! Hehe, so I am asking my sparsely numbered (but all-too-important-to-me) followers to vote for me. Maybe you can join as well too! Here…

Ayala Malls Style Origin Contest (Prize: P10,000) – please vote here, and…

There you have it, please please please I would really be grateful if you guys vote for me here! I’ll raffle ONE ticket to an island IF I WIN. Well, who you might be, I really hope I win!

Thanks y’all! :) ❤❤❤❤❤

And we cut this program for a very special announcement

I am supposed to be on hiatus and should be just limited to the four corners of my pandemonic room, flipping the pages of my reviewers as I yawn myself eagerly to boredom.

But alas, I am out and I am reading my magazine, as a random Gel tinkers on her laptop over coffee. Thanks to the two free days the center has given us, I am relaxing like the Board Exam is on December, not July.

Well, honestly, I’m bummed. Reviewing is as dragging as my classes in college, only that the grade now is a matter of life and death. I’ve let down many events and I feel guilty when I have to stay outdoors late for covers. But I guess it’s not absolute. Everything should fall into balance. /palusot

So with this little rant, I leave you all and eat to my heart’s content here in Banchetto! I’ll get back to you with the galleries I’ve been and some more events coming in May… I’m excited even though I can’t go. Hope you find these information useful!

So til tomorrow brunch,
J

P.S. Say hi to the winners of Bb. Eyebags 2011 /lol
