On my newfound fondness for Jessie J

Jessie J Live in Manila

Maybe it makes you think that from this post’s headline, this post is going to be one of those types wherein I would incessantly talk about the artist and putting them in good light. Sort of, maybe. 

But given what I experienced from Jessie J’s recent show here in Manila, who wouldn’t?! So hear me out. ;)

Before the concert, I only knew a handful of her songs. Most of them are songs I would hear on the radio, or on  TV, everywhere even at someone’s autoplay music in their social media profile LOL. And then three days before her show, Janelle asked me if I am available to help her cover the event (which she wrote about after here, check it out!). With no hesitations, I said yes to her invitation. I get to watch a concert and take photos — instantly two things I LOVE to do.

Jessie J Live in Manila

I only had a few hours to prep myself that Monday afternoon. Having just came back to the city after a long weekend at the province with my friends exploring Bohol (to be discussed in another post!).. I barely had time. Took a nap as soon as I got home, and later I just put a random Jessie J Spotify playlist I found while I was getting ready. Infairness, that playlist was helpful! Read more…

Experimenting with Hipstamatic

Hipstamatic is an iPhone camera app that can emulate the effects of lomo cameras in its photos with the help of the different “filters” in form of films and lens that comes with it upon downloading. There are a few films, lenses, and flash(es? haha) that came with it, the rest you can get buy from the store.

Embarrassing to admit but I may or may not just have blew some money on buying a lot of lens and films (and flashes, sure, they came w/ some of the packs anyway) in the past week. I know I can achieve the same effects with other alternative and free(!) or cheaper apps, but let me enjoy this because I was deprived of all the cool camera apps the last time I had an iPhone! :P

I tried to utilize these new add-ons to the app by taking random~ photos the moment I got out of the house. Obviously there’s nothing much to take photos of here around the house and especially in my room.. other than selfies.

So without further ado… Picspam!

DEMIDEMI (Check them out here: DEMI Pilipinas Facebook page)

Last night I went to meet with a friend at a nearby bar and restaurant place here in the south. It was my first time to go there by commute.. luckily I did not get lost! I always like going to gig and discovering new music.. as pretentious as that sounds. However, I have heard some music from the band that I came there for c/o my friend who invited me in the gig in the first place. By the way for this particular set, I wasn’t able to take note of all the lens+film combo used. Sorry. Read more…

Quick Rundown of the Past Few Weeks

Oh hi there. I haven’t posted anything new for the last couple of weeks. My bad. I’m falling back to my old habits, haha.

Lemme put up a picspam for you in this entry; let you in on a sneak peek of what’s been going on and what I’ve been up to.

Disclaimer: It’s might not THAT exciting. Don’t get your hopes up. But it will be long, as usual. :P

Teeth: The Reunion Part II at The Piazza at Venice, McKinley Hill

So, apparently, this happened! I knew they just had their reunion show last month, but I was not expecting that there would be a part two. I didn’t go to the first one because I knew it was going to be rowdy and that big of a crowd and myself don’t mix well.

This show drew in a smaller crowd BUT I liked the setlist of this show (better? nah I’ve no idea what was played in the first show so I can’t and won’t compare) and even better — there was a meet and greet after the show. Now I don’t know if there was one at the first show too, but I feel that the one I went to was worth it because it was a free show, semi-intimate audience/crowd, heard all the songs I’ve waited to hear live (Shooting Star!), meet and greet after, got to talk to the members, had some stuff signed. Win-win situation for me. Read more…
