Did a photoshoot for The Amazing Playground’s new line, Keep Living: Good Vibes Good Times Good Life. It was sort of like my first professional shoot, although it wasn’t any different from what I do in my course but this one is a little out of the ordinary because I’m actually working with real models (with hair & make up + styling + clothes by Amazing Playground) so it was a pretty awesome...
Fun Run at The Fort
Finally! A fun run that I woke up to! Haha missed the fun run at MoA a few weeks ago ‘cause it was at 4 effin’ am! This one (at The Fort) started at 6am, yay although the driver picked us up at around 5am, so that was pretty hard for me, lol. Went there with my sis & Kaye. Met a lot of people! So that was really fun, lol. Saw Benjie & Martin (hs friends) too! Only ran 3k haha it was so...
I Have Two Prom Dates
Probably the cheesiest, gayest, Koreanovela-ish shoot I’ve done, hahaha! All the models had to be spontaneous & look super happy, lol. Inspiration for the photoshoot (according to the photographer) was Betsey Johnson’s prom-themed Spring 2008 collection & Nylon Dec/Jan 2008 issue. Plus she kept playing Teenage Dream by Katy Perry hahaha but we had fun! Great work, E! ...
The title has no relevance with this blog entry whatsoever. I’ve been pretty addicted to the soundtrack of 500 Days of Summer (and the movie of course) these days. And how can you not like this song? Plus the music video, so hipster. Anyway, had a fun photoshoot with Elisa Aquino, Tinee Cruz, Nilcah Ortico, Gizelle Lim & Calvin Alloza. We extended an hour at the studio after the real...
Laid Back Sunday
Discovered a new hang out place with the fam (Centris Walk haha) It’s so near our house, but it’s new so it’s still kinda lonely, it doesn’t have much restaurants yet, it’s still dusty & it smells like wood & cement, lol hater alert. I love how the architecture of the place is reminiscent of Planet Pandora from Avatar (lol geek) & it looks very modern, I...

Denim on Denim
This is one of my possible outfits for Philippine Fashion Week this coming October. Most people I know hate denim on denim ensembles but for some reason I really like it. Never really liked the preppy look (lol I’m over that phase). Now I really enjoy the grungy + lumberjack + rugged look. Makes me feel badass, lol. On Dave (me haha): Lensless glasses, Denim polo, denim jacket with...

So basically I’m the only male model & I have two prom dates. How...
Term break has been pretty awesome for me. I get to do the things I haven’t done when I’m jampacked with shoots, website designing/coding, script writing, animation, etc. Like sleeping till 11 in the morning, eating all day, laying in bed watching stupid shows on tv, downloading movies I’ve always wanted to watch, go biking, workout (I hope it gives justice to the photo below...

Went to the Polaroid Exhibit at SM Mega Mall for the launch of the new PoGo instant digital camera & printer! Dammit I want the instant mobile printer thing!
