Remember BOUNCE?

Bounce used to be the only magazine I bought back in my Sophie years. I love it because a lot of college students were contributing and that they didn’t condone cheesy girly covers (totally nothing against, but not my style neither.) I love it because it did rock and it is where my first published work can be found.


Whatever happened to October Eighty Publication? They were great.

Look at what my friends have been up to while I was away! Talented Mr. Edrick Bruel took all shots, while Thysz headed art direction and Mike and Eugene styled model Maverick Lacson. Et voila – Mori Boy! Very brilliant, you guys!

specifically didn’t watch this before my SG trip because I think it’ll disturb me, even if it is not in Singapore. Nonetheless, this should not pass without justice. I suggest you read the whole post by clicking source.

I bid all nations to respect all races, nationalities, and gender – whether they have brothers and sisters who made mistakes. Stereotyping is very medieval and ancient, don’t you think? Time to grow up, Indonesia.

I pray for peace of mind for this blogger and his friend and equality for the world.

P.S. I have to thank Singaporeans for being nice and accommodating. ESPECIALLY cab drivers who knows their way, have spare change, and does not go around circles just to raise the bill.

I ❤ SG,
