Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Valentine’s day and I’m cutting my annual tradition of emo shitty posts on the day of hearts. For the first time, my V-day has been without drama so far and only love, love, love from my friends. Being single isn’t really bad at all (I’m a changed man! LOL)

Also, I want to show to you our Valentine’s feature at Moonleaf! So what if nobody’s there, right huh? This video is a proud production of our Design Team at DGNTY! Congratulations, team!

And for added V-day sizzle schmizzle, introducing internet star Sebastian Castro‘s ultra hot music video!!! BEWARE: if you’re busy don’t watch it now. It’ll keep you peeled to the screen like a… I don’t really wanna say anymore HAHAHAHA.

Gad, summer is indeed here. Hahahahaha. Get a hint, guys!


Just got back at the office, and it’s back to work bitches. I really had fun with our company Singles’ brunch. Though technically, Nica’s no longer single hihihi. Don’t ask me, ask her :P


Love is in the air. Pull the joker card.

Hey everyone! Watch out for my new blog — blog.jonverdavid.com! See you there soon!

Muni Garage Sale at Moonleaf Maginhawa!


Tomorrow, the Nomad Manager along with some other brands will have a garage sale at Moonleaf Maginhawa under the Muni PH which aims to build a community of cultural creatives to influence healthy, responsible living to its full potential. I’d rather tell you to read their blog to know more about them.

I’ll see you there, yes?

Moonleaf presents: UAAP Cheerdance Competition

It’s yet another season of UAAP, and for those who care less about basketball (sorry, junkies) there’s the Cheerdance Competition. Probably, if not the second, the most anticipated event in UAAP. And I’m not kidding. From where I graduated, I heard, the pep squad is the most pampered and most spent on team!

And we at Moonleaf were more than happy to host a CDC screening. Now on its second year to host, we always love seeing school spirit!

Our friends, Travis and Cai among many others, came to watch (and cheer their lungs out) with us! Can you tell who they were rooting for from their outfit?

There’s plenty of goofing around, too. Not captured in photos, though! Everybody was loopy and happy not until the announcement of winners. When the champion was announced, which was UP for the 8th time now, EVERYBODY, and I mean everybody, like the shop was like quaking in full joy! This is Maginhawa branch we are talking about! Balwarte levels!

And after hosting the event, we were all hungry and shit so… Mercato ensued. I had isaw, Laoag empanada, and the most heavenly aligue-laden three-cheese Risotto balls. I. HAZ. TO. GO. BACK. FOR. THAT.

And a little beer wouldn’t hurt to cap night. This is my and my friend Pat’s favorite drink. I miss her badly. Pat if you’re reading this, get the hell outta of that lab and let’s drink!

SPREAD THE WORD: Relief Drive for the victims of Monsoon Floods

Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay of posts… I’ve been busy with work and well, all this rain which we can’t call a legit typhoon. Anyway, we at Moonleaf are organizing a relief drive over at our Maginhawa branch to gather all your donations for the victims of the monsoon flooding. All donations are welcome – cash, food, waters, clothes, toiletries, etc. Please contact me @Jonver_David, Thysz @thysz, or Tonyo @tonyocruz for coordination, if necessary.

Again, our country is facing a huge challenge, but it is up to us to step up and help our own people. A little help goes a long way and any effort is appreciated. Keep safe everyone :)

P.S. If you’re from the South, and can’t come all the way to the North (obviously) you can drop them off at Binalot (@binalot) Dela Costa branch at Makati. Also, refer to this link for list of relief operations around the country. Thank you very much!

Lazy days













For those days that we miss, we have Moonleaf Tea Shop.

One Bookworm-y Saturday


It’s been almost two weeks since we held the very first Bookworm Brigade bookswap + bookdrive at Moonleaf Maginhawam, and I am still overwhelmed of what we were able to do – gather books and book lovers and share it with each other. I’m glad that a lot were commending what we did but little did they know that it just really began with a tweet.




The untold story was Cariza, Jonard and I were just tweeting, actually ranting, how we are out of books and cash and how we want to read more books. We initially thought of swapping books. But then we thought we could bring some more friends over, until the event page was made. Long story cut short, the event grew bigger and next time we know we’re  facing piles and piles of books at Moonleaf Maginhawa. STILL. OVERWHELMING. FOR. ME.




DSC_0436Goofing around while manning our makeshift nooks :)

DSC_0441Team DGNTY dropped some books as well. Thanksies girls!


I really promise, we’ll do it longer next time! A lot were tweeting that they weren’t able to drop by because we packed up just before 5pm! It’s because some of us were heading to Makati to Mashable Social Media Day! I really make it a point to head over there to show my support to my friends who organized it.




When will be the next Bookworm Brigade? I really don’t know. Honestly, if it were up to me, I’d have it monthly. But let’s see where this will lead us. I’m just really glad that people appreciated what we did, and I really think my team deserves pats-on-the-back… and a SPIDER-MAN MOVIE!

Cariza, Jonard, if you’re reading this. Thank you and see you on Saturday for that movie date! Teehee!

STATUS x Moonleaf x Maroon 5





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



I cannot stop spazzing over Adam on the cover!! Best thing evar



DSC_0349And this bookmark, yaaaaaaaaaaaaay



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


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!


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]
Dalagang Pilipina smile

DSC_0222Monopoly Deal-ing before the panda touches down


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


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_0240I love nori crackers…. must buy soon!






DSC_0250Once a PdP girl, always one.



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

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 :)

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

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