It’s still the month of hearts, so I hope you could forgive me for the cheesy opening photo. Also, this is my very first How To ever, so forgive me for all the silliness.

Summer is a Feeling

Summer is not a season, it’s a feeling. A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs.

Jackie at 21 – 5 Years Ago

In January, I rummaged through my stack of journals back in college ’cause I clearly remember drawing Jackie for her birthday then. Well, that was five years ago. Five! And here it is: Note: Alcohol is a friend to mankind if drunk in moderation. A good relationship with alcohol can last a lifetime but you […]

Silent Swim: A Painting Exhibition by AB Paredes

I got the invite through Facebook, and then later on through a BBM by a good friend who also happens to be the sister of AB Paredes. It was a Saturday night and I was supposed to sleep early for our supposed early morning trek (watch out for that post), but this was pretty interesting. […]

Androgyny – and then some

I’m not one to share another’s work in this space, but with the rate that I am obsessing with the works of Katrina Pallon¬†lately, I just couldn’t stop myself. I came across her 365 project when she tweeted one of her first few works for 2012. It was love at first sight. Ayayay. So when […]

My past life involved playing a bass guitar for an all-girl band which performed during The Swan Song […]

Next to Normal the Musical: It’s Back in Manila!

Peter Pan at the Meralco Theater

I bet one time or another you’ve had this Peter Pan fantasy of never growing old. I’m no different! In fact I might still have that fantasy deep within me now — life is a never-ending quarter-life crisis (or so they say). If you are, like me, a fan of this Mr. forever-boy fairy tale […]

In the Heights: Pacencia y Fe!

You could say that Atlantis Productions strikes again with another moving musical this year —¬†In the Heights. Although the play takes place in a bodega-ish area in Manhattan’s Washington Heights, the common Pinoy would easily relate to the culture of the community, and even the individual stories of its characters. Imagine a typical day of […]
