How To Raise A Snowflake

by on Mar.01, 2018, under Snark, Society

So it’s been a two months to the day since I last blogged. After a year and a half of religiously writing here every single day without fail, I decided to take a break. Part of it was due to my mentor Jessica’s advice: no need to post everyday, a couple of times a week is okay. So I took a bit of a rest.

Today, I come out of my self-imposed exile because I just had to share my thoughts – posted on Facebook as well – about this “letter” that I saw on my newsfeed.

Yes, Zac, I do want to find out.

This is my wish for everyone this coming new year: beautiful kisses from the one you love (or at least infatuated with). Consensual kisses, of course, because we do not want to be complicit in any of your crazy shenanigans beyond.

Barring kisses from your personal love, then I wish you kisses from Zac Efron. But you need to fall in line.

Happy New Year!

So over lunch yesterday, Jessica made me, Evan, Roni, and Deo write down our projects for 2018 to motivate us towards actual completion.

#1 and #2 are both me, but #3 is her suggestion, and now I am honorbound as an Elven Prince to actually do it. Well, try anyway. Ha!

Meanwhile, over same said lunch, we:

Gorged ourselves on delicious Negrense fusion cuisine (Sarsa’s menu is chocful of amazingly delicious food, including fusion Beef Rendang, Sisig Inasal, and Sinigang Fried Chicken Wings – you need to try this place out)

One of the most hilarious things I’ve seen recently is this clip. Seriously, I just guffawed out loud. Happy Thursday!

Singing with Idina

by on Dec.27, 2017, under Film & TV, Music & Theater

One of my big regrets was missing Idina Menzel live in Manila a couple of year ago. I think I had a conflicting show to watch then, ticket already bought, when I learned she was coming. Seeing this clip now makes me regret it even more, but it also made me smile (in both joy and envy).

It’s quite a dream come true to sing live onstage with the Idina Menzel. Wow.
