It has been almost a decade since The Itchyworms performed in the city-state of Singapore. The now-iconic Marina Bay Sands was still under construction, for one, and Universal Studios was probably still in blueprints.
The last time the band was there in 2008, they performed in a double bill with Marcus Adoro. First, to serve as his backup band, playing songs from his seminal solo album, Markus Highway, and second, to play their own songs. The night ended in an epic extended jam on old Eraserheads songs.
The years have only made the band’s wanderlust — itch, to borrow from their name — for Singapura that much more insistent. The hunger for the hawker holy grail that is authentic laksa is quite real, and so is the thirst for performing in front of new audiences, such as Singapore’s music-loving folk, whether expats or locals.
Now, the band will finally get to scratch their decade-old itch for Singapore! The Itchyworms have partnered with the awesome people of Pinoy-powered events group Requiem Rising SG, to bring you an extraordinary one-night only musical experience. On 03 November, all paths lead to Hero’s Bar. Whether your hankering is for food, drink, or really good music, it’s sure to be satisfied.

Yes, the event happened yesterday. It was very timely that I also went to MOA to celebrate my friend’s birthday. I met her during the peak of Basketball Hero mobile game (She’s also a DNM player.) and until now, we’re best of friends!
So yah, we ate first at Ramen Nagi, also in MOA. It was our first time to try there. We originally reserved for 3 because she said she’s bringing another friend with her…but at the last minute, we were only two because her friend (also a DNM player) went straight to DNM’s event at SMX building.

James Deakin is a man who wears many hats. Who doesn’t recognize him? He’s a TV anchor, event host, motoring advocate, blogger, and social media personality. But with his multifaceted persona and the hectic schedule that he keeps, it’s his being a family man, a loving husband and father to three kids, two boys and a girl, that he values the most. It is no wonder then that Technomarine chose to honor James, a truly exemplary dad, this Father’s Day.
“Time, it’s the most precious commodity,” Deakin relates when asked about the biggest challenge of being a father. “The harder you work, the more successful you become, the more time becomes precious. So it gets very hard to find that balance.”
His daily schedule can become as erratic as the next, starting as early as 5 am. As someone who doesn’t keep a regular office job, making time for his family is indeed a challenge, one that he doesn’t back down from. But there are compromises, he admits, especially since he has to work to earn a living for his wife and his growing brood.
I can still remember nung bata pa ako na hinihintay ko buwan-buwan yung pag-uwe ni “mame” sa Lucena (Quezon Province). Laking lola kami ni kuya kasi nagtatrabaho sina mame sa Maynila, hindi naman kami maisama agad doon kasi wala naman titingin sa amin o maghahatid papasok sa school. Every end of the month or first week ng month, umuuwe sina dade at mame sa probinsya para bisitahin kami ni kuya, mag-iwan sa mga lola ng panggastos, saka magbigay sa amin ng pangbaon sa school. Two days lang sila palage, tapos aalis na. Tapos, malungkot na ulit…wala na ulit akong kasamang mommy sa loob ng isang buwan. Magbibilang na naman ng maraming araw hanggang makabalik sila.
Ang bilis ng panahon, ngayon, ako na yung nanay. May dalwang chikitings na ako na naghihintay sa akin sa pag-uwe galing sa trabaho. Sila naman yung naka-abang ngayon at naiinip sa paghihintay sa ‘kin. Minsan, sasabihan pa ako na ‘wag na akong umalis, ‘wag nang magtrabaho. Kung pwede lang sana… hehe.
The brightest gift for mom is within your reach this Mother’s Day.
