Halloween Costume Party: Meiday Mayhem X Cubao
Went out last night to celebrate Halloween with some friends at Cubao X for the Meiday Mayhem Halloween Costume Party! It was so last minute ‘cause I was out of town & I had no plans of going to the party since fashion week was crazy & I didn’t have a costume! But we got back to Manila early so I still had time to brainstorm, lol. Decided to just go as Edward Cullen this year....
Tricked and Treated
Halloween’s early for us this year ‘cause the next Saturday will be the 30th & everyone’s not gonna be in Manila fosho, lol. We go trick or treating every year, it has been like a family tradition. This year, it was a little weird ‘cause usually it starts early in the afternoon, but then it rained so we had to go to the clubhouse. Good thing the Cullen clan was there to...
Am I Japanese enough for you?
What I wore today, lol. Wore my old Taekwondo top but it didn’t fit well so I wrapped it around my hips aka Star City fashion, lol. Had so much fun shopping at Saizen today. That place is so awesome, they only sell unnecessary things like jabar minimizer, plant clips, detachable pony tail, etc. Got this thingy on my head, I don’t know why I got it. Haha I wasn’t really supposed...
You Are Not Here
You Are Not Here, which brings together the art of Zeus Basco, Jigger Cruz, Mica Cabildo, Marcus Nada (Marchusiro), AJ Omandac, Katwo Puertollano, Nico Puertollano & Bernie Sim (Bru), is a collective meditation on and exploration of the theme displacement. The artists draw energy and material from various structures and layers of experience, confronting and contending with the roles of mass...
Muji (無印良品) in Manila
Muji (無印良品) is a Japanese retail company which sells a wide variety of household & consumer goods. Kinda like a better version of Japan Home Centre, lol. Muji is known for their “no-logo”/”no-brand” policy & minimalist design. (So little money is spent on advertising & marketing.) Their products are displayed on shelves with very minimal packaging & limited...

$elling My $tuff (Part 1)
Got the idea from Jessica, lol. Hey guys! I’m selling some of my stuff to raise money for our upcoming online shop & to pay for my plane ticket, lol. Here’s a couple of stuff for sale: 1. Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens for Php3,500 ($80) Probably the cheapest lens in the market, but I’m in love with it haha. I could let it go now ‘cause I already got the 35mm f/1.8 that I...
The SDA Project Feature
The Makati Underground Walkway is the best place to shoot but apparently guards will end up chasing and child’s play ensues. Even though our excuse for it is —- “it’s for a project.” Well, technically, it is. The name, David Guison, might or might not sound familiar to all of you but if you do know this name, you can one way or another recognize that this...
The SDA Project Feature: Extras
The SDA Project Feature: What's in my Bag

Idea Book - As much as possible, I try to bring my Moleskine wherever I go for the reason that if an idea comes into my...
