If anyone ever tells you to go to an event on time, don't listen too them! You'll be setting yourself up for a cringe moment here in the Philippines haha... Last night was a real experience for me when attended the Ben Sherman, Robinsons Magnolia store opening earlier than expected haha. Not to worry though, I was pretty distracted by all the clothes Ben Sherman had newly on display. Nothing could be more perfected with the attention to detail Ben Sherman's consistently recognized for, thus making one of my favorite brands. Unlike generic clothing brands, Ben Sherman really make the effort to tailor their clothes to fit perfectly like a glove, hence why they're so successful world wide. From preppie to indie-folk, you won't go wrong if you're looking to dress for the occasion. Located on first level of Robinson Magnolia (opposite Cotton On), be sure to check them out!

Ely Buendia did a great job putting on a live show for the media and other guests, especially when he nailed it with the Rolling Stone covers. I was pretty overwhelmed by his performance, especially how quick he was to fled the scene right after his show. Haha.
Caught up with Victor Basa! He's gonna kill me if he sees this candid of him!
Haha I find it quite entertaining the fact that the title of my blog post states that I'm on duty, whereas the content of my pictures clearly state that the otherwise. After changing into my second outfit, I was given the opportunity to meet the marketing team of RWM as they were so kind enough to treat me merienda at Republiq Cafe. They were really down to earth and hospitable people, so we all got along really well which made the shoot feel a lot more relaxing and less tense. Seeing as the shoot was going to take another hour or so, it was nice and convenient to just easily find a restaurant to dine in on such short notice.
For my second outfit wearing Original Penguin as collaborating clothing apparel for RWM, I manage put together this dope khaki/green ensamble in a span of 5 minutes when I was picking out clothes from the Original Penguin clothing store. Not often would I wear khaki pants, but in this case, it really blends well when mixing and matching shades of green. Be sure to add some accessories like the cap I'm wearing just to take away the commando vibe, otherwise you're gonna look like you just came back from a Desert Storm operation in Afganistan haha.

Photo I took of Jess Connelly during a shoot for Status magazine. I don't know what was going through my mind during the post-editing process, but somehow I was rather attracted to the sunglasses which immediately caught my attention the moment I looked at the photo. How I thought about the whole morphing-the-galaxy to the lenses? Thats just the experimental state of mind I allow myself to be in. Haha
"Where's your will to be weird?" is a famous quote by none other than the weirdest man who ever lived, Jim Morrison, frontman of The Doors.
Ever since being introduced to The Doors at a young age, it's only until now that I've actually learnt to appreciate the philosophy of Jim Morrison. A weird man he was, Jim was a well respected human being for being true to himself. He lived a life of no shame, nor regret and was able to turn his life around by doing what he loved to do.
Unfortunately these days, it can be a little hard to live a lifestyle like his, with the amount of pressure surrounding us to succeed in life. We also have to accept that there are only few like Jim Morrison who naturally has a tendency to make things go his way. But every time I look up to any of my idols whether it be Jim Morrison, Bruce Lee or even my very own father, the lesson to be learnt is that nothing is ever free in life. If you want it, you have to go get it yourself.
Haha.. Yeah, we have all been told this at one stage but really has the message ever sunk in? Life is weird itself so you can't expect things to magically go your way. But if you want something in life so bad, you really, really have to feel it, vision it and achieve it on your own. When you do, It won't matter what anyone else says because at least you have proven to yourself that you are independent to do things on your own. So even if you fuck up occasionally, don't give in, take a breath, get your head back up high and make something of your life… Give purpose to your life.

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to team-up with Resorts World Manila in collaboration with clothing label Original Penguin. I have to be honest with you, it was the best tie-up ever. From what originally started as a simple outfit shot for RWM’s social feed, turned out to be an adventure exploring unforeseen areas of the mall itself, plus I had the opportunity to pick out anything from the Original Penguin store so I can show off my true sense of style.
Taking the liberty to finally discover Resorts World first hand with a guide, I was really overwhelmed to see what RWM had to offer. You see, the majority of the times I’d only ever go to Resorts World would be late at night around midnight when I’d be fully intoxicated and stumbling into Opus or Republiq haha. So the only ever time I would actually arrive to the mall, would be when everything’s already closed and transformed into a designated night venue… Haha so now I think about it, I’m sure many people could relate to me on same subject.
So honestly, don’t be mistaken when you think of Resorts World Manila next time. It’s not just a well put together casino and night club venue, it’s actually an immaculate shopping mall for everyone and I’d highly recommend it to all families who are looking to try something different. Definitely an idea mall to spend the family with on a Sunday!
Stay tuned for part II
