I am an Erik Matti fan so it goes without saying that I definitely intended to watch Seklusyon in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. The intriguing trailer was just cherry on top. The movie recounts the story of an old tradition where deacons are brought to a seclusion house in Quezon before being ordained as … More MMFF 2016 Short Movie Review: Seklusyon
I chanced upon Avid Liongoren’s Saving Sally about a decade ago and being a 16-year old then, I was thrilled to learn about the story and his plans on how to execute the film. However, since it took a long time before the film was finalized, I have completely forgotten about it until this year … More MMFF 2016 Short Movie Review: Saving Sally
I remember suffering from depression last year until the first few months of 2016. I wasn’t clinically diagnosed, but I knew I didn’t need a doctor to confirm it when I almost lost the will to live and had difficulty looking for reasons to do so. I went to sleep praying for God to just … More Confessions Of A Person Who Was Depressed
I know. Most of you would never dream of associating me with the word, “old-fashioned”. I was told that I epitomize the modern woman: opinionated, independent, confident, and adventurous. A lot of people see me as someone who is strong and someone who does what she wants; which is true in all accounts and is … More Why Dating Is Hard For Old-Fashioned Romantics
Among the Colourpop lippies I tried, this one takes the cake. For those who have tried this brand of lippie, we all know its formula is not consistent; it can get too cakey, too dry, but there are still some like this shade which staying power is just amazing! The picture on the left is … More Colourpop Barracuda Review
Time and again, I’ve always said that you’d know a person is not right for you when there is a need to chase them. I believe that those who were meant to stay in your life will never leave; if they do, they would always always find their way back regardless how far they wander. … More Expectations
Thought Catalog recently e-mailed me about including my article, “An Open Letter To An Almost Lover” (which was also published on their website), to be included in their book called, “The Truth About Almosts”. I was ecstatic and gave them my permission to do so. Who would have thought that something I wrote out of … More Silver Lining.
I never thought I’d be in the same spot again. Just when I accepted that things are going to be bleak for me, you came. You were that one person I didn’t expect to majorly turn things around for me. To be honest, I thought our first date would be our last because you were … More Moving Forward
Hey. I miss you. But this is the last time I’m going to write about you. We were never together, but I’d like to believe we almost were. We were never in love, but we had that “click”. The “click” we had the first time we met was too obvious not to ignore. I knew … More Letting Go
I don’t want to be this girl anymore. I don’t want to be the girl who gets attached so easily. The girl who always starts the conversation, and keeps it going at the same time. The girl who takes dates seriously, because why else would you date a person you have no intention of getting … More The Girl.
