Go mobile with MiLi

I’ve been living with my Blackberry phone for quite some time and it has been there in my high and low times. Well, aside for my personal transactions, it’s where I work sometimes because basically my job revolves around Facebook and Twitter. And add to that when I randomly become lazy to open Toshi, my netbook, I have been a heavy Blackberry user ever since.

The only drawback from every phone, I think, is the battery life. Seriously, when I work – and I mean Twitter, BBM, YM, and the office apps are on, my battery is only good until less than half a day. Yeah, and I’m out of the house for 25 hours. And it’s such a hassle to find cafes with enough sockets. It’s sad but good thing, I have MiLi!

Maybe I’ll get this next – it’s for bigger devices like iPad and laptops!

Globe Lovebus ❤


“Free rides! Yay!” Exactly my thought when I was invited to experience the pilot ride of the Globe Lovebus. It’s Globe’s way of giving back the love by letting all of us experience hassle-free (and you bet, MORE FUN!!!) riding, much like their newest prepaid promo *143#. 




The Globe Lovebus traverses the busy road of EDSA, pit-stopping at your favorite malls in the Metro. The route starts from Trinoma and ends in MOA and vice versa. From a commuter perspective, this is really a relief, because getting a bus (and getting bored by all their movies) in EDSA is a pain in the ass. The long ride is no longer a problem too, since Globe gives you a one-of-a-kind bus ride experience with a number of in-ride activities like games with actual prizes (I see some eyes glimmer! *wink*)

I’d ride the bus if it meant seeing Ed Westwick everyday. CHARAUGHT!



So how does one gets in the Lovebus? Here’s some easy steps:

1. Register through Globe’s Facebook account.
2. Book your ride, along with your name, prepaid number, and some friends’ names (more utash more fun!)
3. Wait for a confirmation SMS to be sent to you mobile number.
4. Go to your scheduled ride, and show the SMS that acts as your ticket.
5. Hop on the bus, and enjoy the ride!!!




But the fun doesn’t stop there, the Lovebus also has provincial legs in Batangas and La Union this coming Holy Week! Trips to the provinces will be on April 4 and 5, with return trips on April 8 and 9. And if you plan on visiting one of the recently announced top beaches in the world – Boracay, just show your Globe-powered mobile phone or Tattoo stick and ride the Globe Loveboat to and from Boracay island on April 13 – 15! Buses in Metro Manila will commence trips on April 10 and will run for an entire month from Monday to Saturday, 10am – 7pm.

DSC_0135I’m on a diet. CHOS! The big slab of steak was on the second plate, haha!

DSC_0139Francis, Coy, Celine

DSC_0141TJ kept us really entertained while riding the Lovebus


And to keep you connected this summer, you don’t need to remember numbers, keywords, or codes. All you need to remember is *143# to avail of Globe’s latest prepaid promos! All promos are now centralized on this promo, so that it’s easier  and quicker to register for Globe promos. Like UNLIALLTRIO which gives you unlimited call, text, and surfing! When will this be available on postpaid? I need eeeeet so bad!

The Moonleaf 2012 Planner

We interrupt this backlog-killing spree for a very important announcement —

MOONLEAF 2012 PLANNER IS ALREADY AVAILABLE AT YOUR FAVORITE MOONLEAF BRANCH! *Imagine me shouting out of freakin’ excitement* And yeah, they require no stamp collection, no drowning in caffeine, just you and your Moonleaf 2012 Planner.

And yeah, I quit a five-year habit (a guilty one, yes) for this. I’m so excited for my own!!! I recommend you buy one to see its contents. Well, I had the chance to see it first, but I won’t kill the excitement :P


Congratulations to the Moonleaf team for the very successful launch of new branches, a trending spot in Twitter, and this beautiful planner (that I can’t quite get my head off until I have my hands on one!) Follow them on Facebook and on Twitter!

Anteroom Sessions!

After only a month of planning, that Saturday night of music, shopping, giveaways, and milk tea finally happened. What happened to be only a musing of sorts turned into one big successful event! I was sick the night before Anteroom Sessions, but what the hell, I really didn’t care because I really wanted to make this event memorable. And even after four days, I still can’t organize my thoughts – blame it on the flu, I guess. But it’s really cool that these artists and brands decided to collaborate with us to bring you a one-of-a-kind weekend art x music experience.

Love Never Dies – love the electric guitar + mixer fusion. Hanna would have loved to listen to their sets

DSC_0495Manuel Nicolas Alvero – I always see him in gigs like the Heima launch at the LRI and Meiday, but it’s only that day I got to listen to him



DSC_0490Tarsius – It was Diego Mapa’s birthday! And their set was so electrifying, it left the people in shock 



DSC_0502Thysz and Jen hosted, with me butting in sometimes, LOL!



DSC_0513Outerhope – J’adore!!! I was a screeching fanboy at the back and I was happily floating among their soundwaves. So calming to listen to! You should download their free tracks (all artists’ links below)




Love in Athens – I was surprised at how strong his music is, plus I love how quirky Francis Regalado is!

Of course, this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the following brands!

DSC_0496Accommodating and very funny crew at Moonleaf Tea Shop

DSC_0473Splatt MNL accessories – they also sell customized letterman and varsity jackets

DSC_0476FILED! – ’cause something always tells me I will never have enough notebooks

DSC_0477Analog Soul – love ’em shirts!!! I should go get some.

DSC_0478Junk Studio (as manned by my co-intern Pat Remoquillo) – upcycled products up for grabs.

Thank you to everyone who entrusted their Saturday nights to us. We really do hope you enjoyed the sets, the shops, the giveaways, the milk tea, and of course the company that we shared. We can’t wait for the next one. We hope you’re feeling the same way too!

SHOWING THIS WEEK: Titus Andronicus

Was in the dress rehearsal of Titus Andronicus a while ago at SDA (thank you Marion for accommodating me) and I’m amazed at how they really prepare for this. From the nitty gritty of it – costume, props, production design, lights, music. Everything seems so well put together. It’s opening this Wednesday, August 3 at the SDA Auditorium, up until August 5. I really didn’t take any photos, but I’ll leave you with this poster they made.

First performed in the winter of 1594, TITUS ANDRONICUS is considered to be Shakespeare’s bloodiest and most violent work marked by a number of beheadings, a disembowelment, rape, dismemberment, murders, and cannibalism. Set during the latter days of the Roman Empire, the play tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths.

Featuring theater stalwarts KALILA AGUILOS, DAX ALEJANDRO, JOSHUA DEOCAREZA, NAR CABICO, G.A. FALLARME, DERRICK GOZOS, GWYN GUANZON, RUSSELL LEGASPI, MARA MARASIGAN, JIHAD MARIANO, PAOLO O’HARA, CHRISTIAN PARADO, PAUL JAKE PAULE, GAB SANTOS, and JOEL SARCHO as Titus Andronicus, the play will be shown at the SDA Theater at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design & Arts along Vito Cruz, Manila. Performance Dates are August 3, 4, and 5, 2011 with 1:00 and 7:00 PM shows. Ticket prices are at PHP 150, 300, and 350. Co-presented to you by Kickers, High Sierra, DC, Quiksilver, Roxy and Jansport.

Get these cool freebies when you buy the corresponding tickets:

PhP 300 ticket = Jansport lanyard
Two PhP 350 tickets = Jansport notebook
Five PhP 350 tickets = High Sierra backpack
Seven PhP 350 tickets = Jansport backpack
Ten PhP 350 tickets = Any Jansport bag

For tickets and other inquiries, please call or text: 09178387285 / 09155059439 / 09175020531 / 09163256772.


As you know this is the thesis of the AB-Production Design and AB-Technical Theater students of De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde (some of whom are my friends.) So let us support them by watching! This is open for all individuals, Benildean or not. See you!!!

If you don’t know how to get there, here’s a map to help you. Or just get off at Vito Cruz LRT 1 station and walk across the road. When you see Jollibee, head straight that street. SDA is near a construction sight and a 7/11 store.

RSVP to this event.

Manels Private Sale

If there are two fashion guilty pleasures that I have – that would be shoes and bags. Shameful confession: most of the time, before I look to the face, I look to the shoes first! Well, anyway. HAHA! Enough of that.

Two days before the launch of the biggest sale (as far as I’m concerned) I’ve ever heard, Manels invited bloggers to see their latest collections and, of course, to go shopping!!! ALL ITEMS, 50% OFF! Zeh bloggers just went wild!

DSC_1046Bloggers just went giddy!



DSC_1051Ooops, dark. Sarreh Melai!

DSC_1052Camwhore-all-you-can! You go shoot that photo, Aisa!


DSC_1057Early (not angry) birds: Aisa, Reg, Honey, Krissy, and Ana

DSC_1061Gah, so many choices! WHICH TO BUY THOUGH?

Maphisto: Men’s shoes. I actually find it marginalizing (very serious, lol) that most boutiques have only A CORNER for men. We are capable of dressing up people, so pimp that corner up! Just saying…

DSC_1047Premium leather

DSC_1050I love the wingtip and perforations, but I really don’t need it.

DSC_1053These look comfy like bathroom slippers.

DSC_1055Topsiders nation

DSC_1059I’ve been searching for a tote bag…

DSC_1060When you’re at Manels, try to smell the leather. It’s so addicting.

DSC_1064I have a pair that looks like these, but I think aren’t as sturdy as these topsiders.




DSC_1091I got the fourth, beige one.



Mr. Mark Siggaoat, VP for Operations of Manels leathergoods. He’s very accommodating. Thank you Sir!

Now some treat for the girls. Manels has a wide selection of women’s shoes.


DSC_1067This snow leopard print tote can stand out in any crowd.

DSC_1068Fringe, anyone?

DSC_1073Studded leather oxfords. For some remixed hipster chic outfit.

DSC_1094You know what they say…

DSC_1080“The higher the heels…”

DSC_1083“…the closer to God!”



They also feature some other leather items like…


DSC_1074More bags

DSC_1075Very classy wallets 


Here are some of the bloggers I met in the event:


DSC_1071Photographer Frank Ruaya


Honey Andrade of Somnium et Vita. Fellow nurse-blogger. Hello there, Honey!


Sarah Tirona of Fashion Eggplant. I was surprised to know her age, she looks so young! And so stylish too!



Reg Rodriguez of Hey Rocket Girl! Her maxi dress really caught my eye.


Krissy of Krissyfied.

DSC_1084Manels staff, who are equally accommodating as their boss!

Thank you and happy anniversary, Manels for a wonderful shopping experience! And I wish I can remember all the bloggers’ names! There goes me again.

The Manels BIG Sale, 50% off on all items, including new arrivals, also on all branches, runs from July 13 – 17 only.

Lastly this is what I wore. Kinda repeat (teehee, I’m not fashown!) Photo by Frank Ruaya

And this is what I got, beige topsiders. Yay! I have new shoes ulit! Photo by Manels Megamall branch.

Heed your inner consumerist! (LOL!)
