The Itchyworms Return to Singapore to Scratch an Itch

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.

Reaction to Jollibee’s Mother’s Day Commercial #Jollibee

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.

Natural is Still Best to De-Stress Your Tress

Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?

 

Studies have shown that stress is commonly caused by interrelationships, such as having to deal with work issues and family-related complications. If left unresolved over time, it could lead to immune deficiency, which later on, might cause other parts of our body to show signs of disruption like hair loss.

 

Many of us could attest to that. It’s like always autumnal equinox whenever we experience chronic hair fall, most especially at the prime of stress. At its peak, our white blood cells attack no less than the follicles, thus causing alopecia. What’s more, anxiety could drive your mane into a prolonged resting phase, which is called telogen effluvium.

 

Stress experienced by the body or beyond our coping resources could trigger hair loss symptoms, which, if not addressed properly, could result to early baldness. Worried about this? Fret no more. You can beat it simply by relaxing, eating or flexing some muscles.

 

Never underestimate the power of sleep. If you feel that you are over your head in dealing with anxieties, choose to rest it off for a while and recharge.
