Are you happy?


Happiness isn’t my strongest suit. However, I have always believed that contentment is the philosophy behind happiness. Yes, that’s found in my Facebook info page, and yes that may qualify as an answer to Ms. Universe. But I guess, that’s not the point of this post, hehe :P

Are you confident enough?

Now these are the few times that I really wish I am a girl!

Yeah it doesn’t mean I’m gay that I want to be a girl. I have my exceptions though – clothes and shoes, all those straight men, and privileges like these. Haha! I’ve been talking to my college best friend, Hanna, that we’ve been thru crazy auditions as BFFs, but we think we cannot this time. How I wish I am a crazy girl right now :P

SO WHY NOT?! Why not go on a crazy week and do something outrageous everyday? Dress up like it’s Halloween (or Born This Way Ball, lolz) everyday. Talk to a complete stranger and sing Call Me Maybe. Walk in a straight line anywhere. Pretend that it’s your birthday. OR WHAT ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF SOMETHING CRAZY? What matters is the adventure you’ll get while doing it!

Rexona asks us, WHY NOT? So maybe Hanna and I will end up auditioning? WATCH OUT :P

Follow these simple steps above to join and have a chance to have the adventure of your lifetime AND take home 500 grand! NOW TELL ME WHY I DO NOT WISH I AM A GIRL RIGHT NOW!


Last Monday, just right before Independence day, along with some bloggers, we spent dinner at M Cafe with Rexona and Unilever Philippines to discuss this new crazy project. I tell you, the girls behind this were crazy too, I love them!






And speaking of crazy, I met up with two of my craziest and the bestest friends I’d ever had in college, too! Say hello to Hanna and Ella (who most prolly should join this contest!)



WHY NOT JOIN NOW! Deadline is on June 17 (THIS. SUNDAY. ALREADY.) To know more about this, like them on Facebook!

“This year’s Tatt awards will honor a new batch of digital rockers,” explains Dong Ronquillo, head of the Tattoo Nomadic Broadband Business. “What sets Tatt awards from other web-centric awards is that we look beyond mere statistics and acknowledge individuals who have expressed an opinion, created inspiring works or ignited social change. This is not a mere popularity contest but a recognition of people who used the social media space to share what they are most passionate about and, in the process, created positive influence and stirred action among people,” he adds.
