But before we even start with what went with STATUS Magazine‘s amazing tea party with Moonleaf Tea Shop, meet two of my pretty friends – Thysz and Julianna

DSC_0336Moonleaf’s Wintermelon Milk Tea…

DSC_0338…and STATUS for everyone! ADAM LEVINE ON THE COVER!

DSC_0342I love the carpeted lounge section in the STATUS HQ! Every office should totally have one IMHO

And by far the best part of their room (well, aside from the lounge, haha)

DSC_0360

It was really fun hanging out with everyone at the STATUS HQ! What more fun is to have Wintermelon Milk Tea to sweeten this hangout. And there’s Adam Levine at the cover – more than enough!

And playing Rolling in the Deep – Trip to Jerusalem a la STATUS Magazine!

Thrifted vest-dress, and military boots

Thank you STATUS!
I love you :)

We’ll miss you Master Panda!

Last night, my friend and former boss Jen a.k.a. Master Panda of the funky fresh brand Punchdrunk Panda flew for Cambodia to start her life-changing trip of a lifetime, which obviously everyone was envious for, haha. Anyway, so we’re pretty  sure we’re gonna miss our favorite panda, so the Apprentice Panda set up a supposed-to-be-small-turned-feast of a despedida for her!

DSC_0219

Just look at that spread, and it wasn’t even the half of everything! We bought all kinds of vegetarian-friendly foodam and Karlo, the Panda Boyfriend, brought FOUR FREAKING BIG BOXES OF BROOKLYN PIZZA! There’s no way Jen couldn’t have guessed we’re throwing a party for her… we were excited pa naman  to see her cry, teehee!

[There used to be a really pretty picture of Nica haha with that caption below]

[There used to be a surprised photo of Jen’s face. Hahaha, oo na mej troll ako]

Nica was in charge of the food, Karlo with the guests and more food (yay!) and my broke self with the venue (working with Moonleaf has its perks, really!) We hijacked four tables and it wasn’t even enough. So much for a small gathering, hehe. So glad though Jen’s friends had the time to drop by even though it was pouring outside!

DSC_0228Pizza, anyone? There’s plenty for everyone!

DSC_0259We bet Karlo secretly cried in the bathroom, haha!

But the Master Panda, a.k.a. the Nomad Manager, will not be really far away if you know what I mean! Keep tuned in her travel antics as she blogs along the way! Be sure to put her in your RSS reader or follow her @nomadmanager on Twitter!

Take care always Jen, and always always always remember we will always look  forward to seeing you again when you come back! Bring some panda-wesome (maipilit lang, haha!) stories with you :)

…and some Ceylon tea, please? Just kiddin’ :P

Current mood: Young the Giant


I’m still on massive hangovers from 1.) Gay Pride Party shit cray courtesy of the Panty Monsters (blogging pictures soon, haha) and 2.) the humble success of our little bookdrive, The Bookworm Brigade at Moonleaf Maginhawa…

Didn’t really expect to see a lot of new faces. Honestly, I wasn’t confident enough that we got the word out enough, but judging from the crowd and how books piled titles after titles, I think Jonard, Cariza and I had done a pretty good job! Also some of the people who went were really glad and were asking us to collaborate with them on next ones… I haven’t put much thought about it, but it’d be really fun if we can do this again!

I got to let go some of my beloved books my measly high school allowance could buy. Now I have new babies to read! I AM SO HAPPY!

Time to start reading!! I’m just finishing Pictures of Hollis Woods, and a couple magazines, then maybe I’m off to start Lord of the Flies by William Golding… I can’t wait already!

Tomato chambray shirt, Stereotyped graphic tee, Hang Ten shorts, Tomato mustard sneakers

And I am just very grateful because everything was a-ok! That me and my team were able to pull it off. I’m happy about that. Though, really, emotionally I am still… not. But that’s not the point. I guess you can’t have everything (as I always end up saying.) I guess that’s how it goes. Life always has reasons to fuck us all. Life’s pretty damn short though. And why spend it on caring anyway?

Life ‘s too short to even care at all…
One  more spoon of cough syrup now…

So I won’t.

Manila Social Media Day!

The official Manila Social Media Day in cooperation with Mashable!

Free admission with lotsa surprises and freebies to be given away! So join us as we celebrate being a social media capital at Makati TOMORROW.

But first, let’s see each other at The Bookworm Brigade at Moonleaf Maginhawa! Then let’s go here together, shall we?

Letting go

I’m… letting go of these babies. I’m already on the brink of crying because of separation issues… and all the asthma I got after unearthing these babies :(

It’s sad, but in one point or another, we all have to say good bye.
But I’m looking forward to getting new titles on Saturday at The Bookworm Brigade! Happening this Saturday already at Moonleaf Maginhawa :)

Map by Jonard

Bring your old books, magazines, and any other reading materials for swapping and/or donating and have some tea with us!

Pub mats by Cariza

Also, we’re giving away felt bookmarks (c/o Moonleaf and Twee Shop) to the first 100 registrants —

Planner not included, hehe

We’ll see you on Saturday! I’m so excited already :)

Let’s go to beach each let’s go get away

Look who’s watching the Pink Tour?! It’s me and my friend Nica Minaj! Thanks to Globe and Blackberry for the tickets (and good seats!)


Now, it’s time to plug Nicki Minaj in the pla-yah, holla!

I really loved my outfit which is really half ukay, and half sponsored. Hehe. I particularly liked my loose top ’cause I have to go around the metro all day and it really is easy to run around town when you’re wearing something as comfy as this.

Congratulations to Bloggers United for making yet another groundbreaking event spearheaded by the net’s most influential fashion bloggers! We love you!!!
