This bag has been with me for more than 3 years I think. I love how it can go from day to night. Plus it’s very roomy without the bulk! Today, I’m in the mood to share the contents of my go-to bag so here we go… Read the rest of this entry »

Tanghalang Pilipino Summer Theater Workshop

- October 5th, 2014 -

They say those Pisces-born are artistic and creative. Although I never felt artistic enough, I knew that I had crazy if not creative ideas. In the back my mind, I’ve always wanted to be a performer. I wanted to be admired and inspire many people. To me, the best way I could express myself is through singing and dancing. No, I don’t sing nor dance well compared to some people I know. I was content knowing that I enjoy performing regardless of how good or bad I was.

When I resigned from my job in March 2014, I thought of trying out a new field. I wanted to take a break from office life. Theater was something I never thought of.

patsyuu-2188May 10-11, 2014 – Following an extremely satisfying organized party from Travel Factor, I decided to entrust my next adventure to them. For the first time, I will be will  two of my best girls from high school – Crissa and Nikki for a surf trip to Baler. This will be the first time any of us have ever tried to surf and we’re glad we did just fine and left Baler without injuries or drowning incidents. We were a tanned a bit too much, exposing ourselves to the noon time sun while waiting for waves to come during our lesson, but it was all worth it. Four months later, my sunburn still hasn’t gone.  Read the rest of this entry »

April 5, 2014 – I have decided to quit my job and discover my other potentials. Immediately following my last day at work, I started doing theater workshops at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, organized by the resident theater company, Tanghalang Pilipino (more about this in my next post…). Less than a week after quitting my job, I was back on the beach, partying, and meeting new friends courtesy of Aiza (from the previous Nature Girl photoshoot). So far, I am having the best week of the year!   Read the rest of this entry »
