My Life Lately: Part 1


It's been a rough time for me since i moved here in Manila on December 2016. I have a lot of questions in my mind that until now i can't seem to find an answer. I thought moving here is easy and life will be much happier, but it feels like the total opposite. Yes, i'm happy with what I've become and what I've achieved here in Manila in such a short period of time; yet there are still a lot of things that i wish i can do more and things that I hoped that I will become.

#GetTheFeels this Summer with Starbucks


Summer, the sunniest time of the year -- Most people would want to feel the scorching heat of the sand on their skin while doing some outdoor fun activities, for some it'll be hearing the sounds of the waves crashing to the shore, or maybe seeing a sky filled with stars while lying on a powdery white sand of the beach or up to the mountains.

For Starbucks Philippines, one sip is all it takes to break free and take the plunge this summer with two new summer flavors: Tea-ramisu and Midnight Mocha Frappucino.

To kick-off the season, Starbucks Philippines held their Summer Grand launch at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium where you'll be able to #GetTheFeels of the season through interactive zones which transported us to the unforgettable summer experiences.


Starbucks introduces ice-cold tasty treats that will help you #GetTheFeels of the latest and greatest summer so far.

This coffee complements better with Fresh fruits, milk chocolate and buttered bread.

Ways to take care of your heart


Though love month is already over, loving and be loved will always be in season. Everyone deserves to dine someone who they can share their lives with forever; if possible. Most of the time we meet the person at the right place but at the wrong time, or wrong place at the right time - whatever suits you.

Sometimes, you will meet someone and it works. Sometimes, you will meet someone and it will feel like God intervened and made you meet. Most of the time though, you meet someone and they break your heart into a million pieces and you start to wonder, “why me?”

Ballet Manila: Ballet & Ballads


I am grateful to be invited to witness Ballet Manila's performance for Ballets and Ballads, their epic end of season act during their premiere night last February 10, 2018 at the Aliw Theater, Pasay City. It's more than just a concert, it is a mini music festival that creates the perfect mash-up of classical ballet, opera, pop, and Original Pinoy Music (OPM).

Winning an Anvil, and What's its charm?


Putting up a campaign that will stay relevant and to have a significance in the society until today is not an easy task; it takes a lot of brainstorming, creative process, and critical thinking; and of course, proper execution. Success in the field of public relations requires a deep understanding of the interests and concerns company and the community. A PR professional must know how to effectively address those concerns using the most powerful tool of the public relations trade, which is publicity.
