I’ve never had the opportunity to work with Folded and Hung since first moving to the Philippines. As much as I’ve always wanted to, not often does the opportunity arise.
Last week believe it or not all that changed. It wasn’t just your regular fashion show that I’d normally book, but for the first time I had the opportunity to collaborate with Folded & Hung as they partnered with the renowned non-profit aid organization World Vision, to bring you the Folded and Hung x Marvel Kawaii clothing collaboration. To be honest I couldn’t believe I got to be a part of a campaign where I had the opportunity to come together with other rising and recognized actor/ess’ such as Cristine Reyes, Sam Milby, Slater Young, the Magalona family, Alden Richards, John James Uy and even recognized designers like Jermome Lorico! What an awesome tie-up ;)
Lucky for me being ‘the blogger dude with the camera’, I had the privilege to be one of the only photographers to go wander around the shoot and do my thing, photographing behind the scenes - aka spying on everyone and waiting for the moment to take their photo haha. The shoot was held at Shutter Speed, Katipunan and it was actually my first time to explore the unknown whereabouts of this studio. See it for yourself!
A tie-up with over 20 or so recognized artist and celebrity names, it was a busy day for the Folded and Hung team, especially for photographer Roy Macam who was soldiering through the day with ease. As you can see from above, even top editors and videographers such as Raymond Ang and Samantha Lee had the opportunity to be part of the shoot.
I was wondering at the time why everyone was looking in the one direction with their cameras until I realized…
It’s Roy Macam that hipster photographer with a new addition to his look haha.
Check out my friends Miguel Urbina Tan and Tini Dahl they embrace the find Sunday afternoon. I’m telling you, this Shutter Speed studio is and epic place to not only just shoot, but an awesome place to chill.
Check out the rest of the slideshow and stay posted for the photos from the event!
Do you ever get sick and tired of having to line up and pay your phone and Internet bills? Have you ever wondered if there was a more convenient way to save time and without having to get up off the couch? Well guess what guys, I’ve finally figured out the solution where you can avoid all of this and I’m so excited to tell you that all it takes is the click of a button!
After being caught up in such a long and tiring rhythm going out of my way to paying my bills over the counter, I finally said enough is enough. So last month I spoke to Globe asking what I could do about this situation and believe it or not my prayers were answered with one word – GCASH!
For those of you who are unaware, GCASH is a virtual prepaid card linked to your GCASH mobile wallet (sounds cool!) that allows you to do so many things such as shop online, pay bills, send money, buy load, donate and plenty more! Plus, Registration is FREE!! Just dial *143# > select GCASH > select Register. You can also register via the GCASH Mobile App (iOS, BB, Android). I couldn’t believe it when I found out that I was so overwhelmed in excitement, the shop assistant was laughing at me for making a big scene hahaha!
I’ve attached a link on the image, so click to find out more :)
Of course I had to look into it a bit more so I have an idea before signing up. I also found out about Globe GCASH Amex Virtual pay. This service enables you to shop conveniently online from both local and international sites without a credit card, Gives you a personalized U.S. Address c/o My Shopping Box to allow delivery of your purchases right to your doorstep, and allows you to buy apps from U.S. app stores! It also gives you the opportunity to trail the first month free of charge! So if it doesn’t turn out so well, there’s always the option of pulling out after the first month, which can be a big sigh of relief haha.
What also got me lured into using GCASH were the online shopping features: Firstly, Globe GCASH Amex allows you to acquire products online that are not available in the Philippines - How awesome is that? And when you purchase products online, you’ll be paying a cheaper price then what you would usually be paying inside department stores. It’s so convenient all you have to do is download the Mobile app or dial *143# and access through the Globe menu. Give it a try!
