Blackbear - Down 4 U

Summer has officially ended and so here comes the rainy season in the Philippines. The wet season is where you wouldn’t want to wear something that wouldn’t bring out the best in you. You would really want something that will keep you dry from top to bottom and something that is easy to move in. And so, I have come up with these clothes.image

image

Mogao shirt - I have been really fond of these kinds of shirts and luckily one of my favorite local brands sells one of them. Apparently, not only it does look cool but Mogao shirts are also cheap and very affordable. For only less than PHP 500, you’d definitely be able to pick one of your likes. So if I were you, I’d drop by at their store now because I think their stock is very limited. image

World Balance’s Easy Soft - I never regretted the fact that I bought this pair of shoes for only PHP 300 in SM. Despite of its very cheap price, it is astonishingly flexible and waterproof. In addition to that, It really goes along with skinny jeans. So much win! 

Hype my look! 

Well, first things first. One rare and beautiful thing happened to me. I really did not expect it to happen. Correction. I We really did not expect it to happen to us. It was inevitable. The fire spread out so quick and before we even know it was there, we were not able to control it. And if you still do not know what I am talking about, let me just say it straight. We fell in love. We fell in love the minute we saw each other. In a snap, it was just boom and I could not possibly convey in words how I really feel towards her. I am more than euphoric. I am on a cloud nine. I just hope that this time it will not be a destructive type of relationship. I suppose this time, it is real and healthy. 

Sometimes it drives me crazy #5

#5 Crappy service.

Every once in awhile you’ll get one of those shitty services that would definitely get on your nerves. Although I know, it is hard to be a customer-oriented person but come on dude, it’s your job. At least do what you are paid to do. 

Apparently, I haven’t done a single blog since forever and that is because as you may have probably thought, I am living my life now. I am now done with the sedentary lifestyle that have caused me to be one of those couch potatoes. I now have tons of reasons not to update this. lol But don’t you fret. I am actually writing a draft now on what have happened to me these past few months. For now, let’s just listen to this song that I found on the internet.

Best Youth - Hang Out

The scorching hot of summer in Manila has always been a major distraction in choosing the outfit you wear when going out with friends. From the shirt down to your footwear, you would really want to wear something that is not only snazzy, but also comfy.

image

Ray-ban’s Sunglasses - Summer = sunglasses. Do I need to elaborate this?

image

Black sporty shirt - If I were you, I would wear this plain v-neck black shirt. Although the color black is a no-no in summer, this shirt is made in fabricーwhich is perfectly suitable wearing. This thing would not let you look all drenched in sweat therefore it’s a big plus.

image

Uniqlo’s button down shirt - This red and blue patterned button down shirt from Uniqlo can really look great not only as a wrap-around. I carried them with me because sometimes it can get pretty cold particularly indoors. 

Don’t forget to hype my look! 

Summer has ended in a snap.

This summer vacation, I am really glad that I had the chance to visit my family in Japan. It’s only been a year since I got back home and I suppose, a lot of things have changed ーmy two brothers all grown-up and already in their high-school, one of my uncles getting engaged, knowing that one of our cats has died, etc. For one month, I had the chance to catch up and be with them. 

First of all, I know it’s cliche but let me just say this; Time always flies so fast when you enjoy the things you are doing.

April in japan is the season of love, well, at least for me. Not only the Sakura, but all sorts of flowers bloom as it gets warmer and warmer each day. It was my first time to go Hanami (花見)ー”Flower viewing” with my step-uncle and we really had a blast. Apparently, Hanami is a traditional custom in japan wherein friends hang-out in a public park, specifically, one with Sakuras blooming. Here, they get together and chill while drinking osake or rice wine.

image

My step-dad has a knack for fishing. And so like the old times, me and my little brother went to Kanagawa prefecture with him to catch fish. Although we only caught for about  5 different types of sea creatures(lol), it was really fun. 

image

This was a stray cat that we found near the cliff where we tried to catch fish. He was waiting for us to feed and pet him. He was tooo adorable that I wanted to bring him home!

image

We stayed there for the night and we actually slept in a car just to witness the beautiful sunrise of japan. It was stunningly beautiful and priceless. 

image

After hanging out with my step-dad, my mom and my little bro brought me to Ueno park, Tokyo. And here I was, eating one of the finest cuisine in Japan, the sashimi.

image

I will never go back here in the Philippines without visiting the greatest city in japanーTokyo(東京). As usual, I went to Shibuya, the world’s busiest crossing. I was there with no one but my old friend, Jiro. Goood times.

image

I will be always thankful to my Mom and Dad for the never-ending support and for giving me the opportunity to be there with them this year. Of course, to my step grandma and grand pa, Thank you also for taking care of me whenever in need. I will never be able to say in words how grateful I am for always being there for me. 

One of my friends from the business field has decided to venture and start out a clothing line called ‘Cuelio Clothing’. Fortunately, I was one of the lucky guys who was able to try them out first!

They said that they will be putting up an internet-based shopping centre for people who are very fond of these button down shirts! 

image

This sort of black button down shirt with prints was the one I really liked the most! Probably because it suits my size well. =))

image

Wearing my Flying Dutchman’s rucksack here and this one was alright, I suppose. White with grey polka dots print can definitely give you that ‘nerdy’ look if you want to pull it off.

image

This print was also visually alluring!

image

Personally, I think their initial products were all legit. Although marketing business isn’t my forte and I don’t have any knowledge about it or whatsoever, I am pretty sure they are going in a right track! Anyway, they will be having floral shirts as well so be sure to check them out. Big things are definitely coming!

Hype my post!

Yesterday, I was feeling really homesick so I started to write a list of what I miss the most about Japan to let it all out.
I miss my bike. I miss going to random places using only my bike and GPS for a day. I miss being alone at Funabashi public library. I miss eating hotdogs with unlimited drinks at IKEA. I miss going to thriftstores and music stores.  I miss pretending that I can not speak a single word other than the “yes” and “no” in Japanese. I miss sharing stuff with totally different races and to people like me.  I miss windowshopping in Tokyo.  I miss my good ole friends. I miss riding trains; subway trains, normal kind of trains, all sorts of trains that they have.  I miss randomly taking pictures of the things I find interesting. I miss going to their temples. i miss ayakaーmy cat. I miss doing chores on sunday. I miss watching TV with my lolo while he talks for hours on things about Japan.  I miss eating Obaachan’s cook,  I miss getting countless gifts from two of my uncles.  I miss being scolded by my dad. I miss chatting with my mom while I help her fold sheets. I miss having quarrels with my brothers. and the list goes on but most importantly, I miss my Family.

Well, yesterday, I woke up with the unvarying dream again. With her.
The feeling was just so strong that the moment I woke up, I wanted to keep and bury it with me somewhere. Unfortunately, it was fleeting.
No matter how much I want to linger on that state, the thought of realizing that it wasn’t the reality, breaks me.
I know it wasn’t her. I know it was just the idea of her. But then again it brings back memories that make you want to sleep and relive that dream again.
I am haunted by the idea of her over and over again.
Have you had these kind of dreams? It’s a paradoxーboth happy and sad.

Just so you know, I can’t help but fall head-over-heels in love with that girl. Often times whenever I just hear her name, all sorts of memories instantly flash through my mind and before I know it, I’m a highschool student again.

Someone just talked me into giving him a 380 pesos bus fare.

You’ve gotta read this. It’s a short story that happened last night. Because I was so bummed and I didn’t have any internet access at home, I decided to go out and surf the net at one of the nearest cafe from my apartment. So I went there with my phone, a novel by Tom Clancy and my wallet. As my usual drink, I ordered mocha frappe, large. I sat, took on my earphones and I started to surf the net. And like a 21st century teenager, I’ve a obsessive compulsive-social media disorder when I have the internet access. And so I checked my email, went to a couple of my favorite sites and searched for new songs. Anyway, eventually, I got bored so I started to read the novel I brought for about an hour and then I thought that it was already getting late so I decided to go home.
I grabbed my drink and my book, with my earphones still on and went out of the cafe. Then, just when I was about to cross the street, I bumped into this random guy. He was wearing a white shirt, dark jeans and he was gesturing me to take off my earphones. I made an inquisitive look and I noticed that he was speaking in english. I began to realize that he was not Filipino. He said that he is from Los Angeles and that he was lost. He also said that he’s Fil-Am and he only came here with his Filipino girlfriend, apparently, to have a vacation. Then he told me that he and his girlfriend had had a terrible fight and unfortunately, he ended up getting dumped(on a valentines day?lol just when I thought I was unlucky enough for not having a date). Anyway, this girl, apparently had gone to nowhere with all of his belongings. It was already around 11 pm and he said he was walking for long long time just to find someone who could help him. He had sunken brown eyes and I thought he looked pretty exhausted perhaps because he was walking for too long. To cut the long story short, he was asking for a bus fare. I was a bit skeptical for I get a lot of bad rumors about the different tactics of burglars nowadays but I sensed that this poor guy was different. I was still a little hesitant so I told him I was only a student and I could only give him half of what he needs. But I remember I also had an experience like that one time back when I was in japan so I knew what he was feeling. I asked for his name, and he said that his name is Michael Smith Gonzalez(what a unique name).
He also mentioned that he was a surfer(evidently because his skin was tanned) and that he would give me one of his surfboards. We talked for about less than 30 minutes, and I told him I was a student one time in japan and I knew what he was feeling so I’ll help him. He was so thankful that he would give me 10 times of what I gave him(although I thought it’s really unlikely to happen) when he managed to get his belonging. I gave him 360 pesos but he asked if I could give a little bit more probably because he was also really hungry. So I gave him what was left in my money, which was only 20 pesos. I asked if he knows how to get there and he answered that he will figure it out. I also gave him what was left on my drink. He was so thankful and he gave me his number because he insisted that we talk as soon as he can. Then I said that he take care of himself and I left him.
So… Was I too good to be a good samaritan? or did I just actually come out from a pub and not a cafe—in short, drunk?
