Everyone has their share of opinions about the recently concluded 7107 music festival last weekend. No, I didn’t go. (#brokeassblogger problems) But would it count for anything that I did go to one of the mall shows w/ a couple of their artists headlining it?
Well I did, and it was ‘nice’. I am not a fan nor do I know a handful of songs from both performers, but it’s still something. At the end of the day I’d have my own story related to 7107 to tell people about. Hahahaha. Not close, not quite, but still somehow connected.
Yeah, keep telling yourself that.
So what really happened was that I accompanied a friend (who’s already going to the festival itself the next day, w/ tickets and hotel accommodation already set, by the way) to the 2nd mall show featuring The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and The Astroid Galaxy Tour. It was in the Venice Piazza mall in the McKinley Hill, BGC. Far from where I usually go. Show’s venue was at the open area location.
It was my 2nd time to go to that mall and we even got lost on our way there. That’s what happens when you try to save up money by taking multiple public transports even though you have no concrete idea how to go there instead of saving time (but not money) and getting a cab in the first place that’ll take you there. Luckily when we arrived, the show hasn’t started yet. Continue reading →
Last month, while I was organizing my photos from the MaD show, I suddenly had this idea of having some of them printed. Not my shots from the show itself, but the spontaneous photo-ops w/ the artists after the show. And I also thought of compiling everything, like a small album for my own — that sort of thing. When you have been doing this for a while, it’s kind of hard to keep track, cuz they’re growing in numbers over the years. In the end, I thought that wouldn’t be a bad idea at all.
Shortly after that, I thought about the means of having these photos printed. It would be very costly if I go out every time to have them printed and done professionally at a photo developing studio. Then I remembered those portable Canon Selphy printers. My friend has one of those, and they were fun to use last time I remember. Thought about its practicality and cost of the paper and inks, realized that it’s not that bad.. especially for the quality of the photos which cannot be beat by the regular print quality of home printers (inkjet type).
I texted her and within a few hours, we have agreed to meet up the next day cuz she’ll lend me her printer. T’was the right time because she isn’t using it now because she doesn’t have any photography classes requiring it.
I headed to the Mall of Asia maybe two hours earlier than her and while I was waiting to hear from her.. I took these random photos whenever I stopped by a random corner around the mall.
Nothing special, just paying attention to the geometric shapes they formed. Probably not a big deal to you but I like the contrast of the photos. Continue reading →
I found their little booth at the Blogapalooza event last month and got curious what kind of food they have for us to sample. At first I thought it, the donut, looked a bit strange, but after the lady representative explained their product to me.. I understood why it looks like that now.
Mochi-like Mochi-shaped Mochi donuts, that’s the short version of it. It’s chewy and it’s not like the usual donut. Plus what you’ll probably love most about it is there is more than enough filling inside (only on some flavors, afaik) a donut so just imagine how mouthwatering it is going to be for you when you try one.

Reading: Been jumping from one Buzzfeed post to another in the past 2 hours.. but I’m currently reading this one — 30 Forgotten Horror Films You Should Revisit Writing: Fonts and hex color codes for this website project I’m doing. I know, I know. I could easily type them but I don’t wanna have to keep switching windows on my already cramped up laptop display. Right, 1650×1050 is considered “cramped”. :)) Listening: See You by Foo Fighters Thinking: Where to start w/ this website project.. Smelling: I’d like to think that I smell better than the last time I did this Sunday Currently post (which was 2 months ago, LOL) Wishing: for more time! I’m beginning to see that 24 hours in a day is simply not enough. Either that or I am poorly managing my time. Hoping: I get to buy an iPhone by the end of the year. How materialistic of me… but hey, it’s almost Christmas!! Wearing: Pambahay clothesies~ Loving: (I’m drawing a blank for this, haha. Wala eh.) Wanting:YABU! Or to pig out at Yakimix buffet with my friends. I haven’t had a full meal all day so here I am having random cravings. =)) I blame my friend for my sudden interest in buffet restaurants. Needing: …more time and motivation to just keep working and don’t let myself get distracted so easily. Oh and I need to get my hands on the new Android OS. I bet it would look perfect on my phone. Feeling: (still) Exhausted, physically and mentally. Clicking: …around Twitter replying to random people and still around Buzzfeed for posts related to 90s shit.
I know I said that I will do this monthly, but I just realized last week that I just missed doing one for the month of October. See how terrible I am w/ doing this? Lol
It’s been a long time coming but we finally did it! Before we would just casually throw out this crazy idea of going out of town, for a few days, out to the provinces and just relax, unwind, have fun. I believe that we’ve talked about it for years and no concrete plan has been agreed on…
