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.

You Can Shine Just Like Elisse Joson with Fiona Cologne

PRESS RELEASE

 

Popular actress and influencer, Elisse Joson, is at the top of her game. Only 16 when she joined the crazy world of show business, she’s proven to have staying power after having been given roles in daytime and primetime TV series and even movies. Her big breakthrough came as the star in a recent series of ads for a popular fast food chain and she’s currently starring in Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN, opposite Mccoy De Leon, her rumored suitor. Just in the past two years, their team up has been nominated in five different award giving bodies, winning in four of them.

 

Elisse is just taking it all in stride. “I’ve been so busy and I’m really grateful for all the blessings. But I’m also my own worst critic. I experienced bullying in high school so words really have an impact on me,” she reveals. So she’s happy to partner with a brand like Fiona Cologne that aims to empower girls like her.

 

Fiona Cologne, with its charming and attractive scents, brings out the fun and beautiful in everyone and will naturally make its wearer shine in the spotlight. Elisse is the perfect choice for Fiona Cologne. She’s obviously very beautiful but she’s also effortlessly fun and has a quirky charm, making her positively magnetic.

 

Elisse admits being a fan of Fiona’s line up of scents ever since.  “There’s definitely a scent for all kinds of personalities. One of my favorites is Rosy Red, it’s my go-to everyday scent!” Elisse declares. She enjoins her fans to try Fiona Cologne so they can be just as confident as her, attracting compliments wherever she goes.

 

Fiona Colognes are now available in supermarkets, groceries, and drugstores nationwide.

 

She Validates My Existence!

UPDATE:

She’s totally NOT A SNOB:

O-M-G!

My initial reaction when I saw my Twitter notification:

I’m so “babaw” but this is actually how I felt after watching her 123 vlogs, and she recognized my existence! I have a really happy soul right now!

I know most of us are “fans” of somebody that we truly admire. Don’t stop being a fan. Some people may say it’s uncool to be one. There’s nothing wrong with that especially if they are setting good examples that could change the way you view your life.

I love this pretty lady, actually her whole family (and the #vlogsquad). Every time I watch her vlogs, it makes me feel lighter and makes my perceptions of life converted into a positive way. I am a BIG fan of people being exactly who they are.

#DGAF and live your life!

I feel so motivated  and learned a lot from her. She’s a bomb! If I can just personally thank her with the things I am learning from her, I WILL. If this blog will reach her, I want to share this line from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “To be yourself in a world  that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” So Haley, just go on and continue inspiring people! 🙂

Let me share with you the song I tweeted which I just heard from Haley in one of her vlogs. It’s an old (not really) but nice song:

What about you, who’s your idol? And what’s the difference she/he brought to your life? 🙂

How Far I’ll Go

Yah, I may be too late for this but hey, I love it! Walang basagan ng trip! Hahaha!

How Far I’ll Go

I’ve been staring at the edge of the water
‘Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I cannot go
Where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go

Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh

I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I’ll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?

See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go

Who doesn’t want this? Good movie. Good soundtrack. 🙂 There are a lot of things that you can learn from this movie. The top thing I love is learning to let go and trusting everything will be okay soon. Another is, for us to realize that even the strongest people can feel scared sometimes. Fear may hold us back but all you need to do is keep going, keep pushing and KEEP ON BELIEVING.

So, whatever it is that you are going through right now, believe that everything will fall into place at the right time. Let’s talk…
