Let’s Not Carpe This Effing Diem, But Let’s Party as Man Should in Anotherland

Okay, I’m not going to start this article with the usual, “Let’s Carpe this effing Diem!” or “It’ll be the sickest night of your mothafu*king lives” like your usual HS rave parties in the bahay or the super yehey venues where you get invited to- OMG! Forbes Park! Because this party is not like your usual Saturday swing outs. This May 29, 2015 Axell Entertainment will be having Anotherland in FEU Block, South Corporate avenue of Filinvest City, Manila and they will show you why God created man, and how man created fun.

You’re probably wondering why I have so much faith in this establishment. Well, creating fun is harder than it looks. You know what I mean. We’ve all had a fair share of very weak raves, so I don’t blame you. But this Music Festival will be different and I have cold hard facts to prove it.
Fact 1: Anotherland is patterned after multiple European Music Festivals and we all know how the Europeans party. Here’s a heads up; Tomorrowland, Donauinselfest, Sziget, and much more. Check this website for a run down of all European Music Festivals: http://www.festicket.com/festivals/
Fact 2: How could you go wrong with Anotherland’s theme, Sin City. You could finally pull on your best bad girl Jessica Alba look or your tough guy Bruce Willis act without being judged. The best part is you’ll feel completely bad ass with all that B&W glory.
Fact 3: It’ll be just like Fast 7, but this time you can actually see the cars first hand. Bro, if I could just touch that Lykan Hypersport, my life would be complete. Your 2013 self, who was toying around GTA 5, will be rejoicing when he chances upon the cars they’ll showcase in Anotherland.
Fact 4: There will be Tattoo Hubs! Okay, a lot of people will strongly discourage you from getting a tattoo in a Music Festival because it’s permanent and the artist wouldn’t be focused, but this is only if you get a huge ass tattoo. I think it’s pretty cool if you get a small tattoo lamented on your skin, which will remind you of one awesome night. Since it’s small, it’ll be less likely screwed up.
You can even talk to the artists in their free time and maybe you’ll step it up a notch and figure out what their tattoos mean.
Fact 5: Have you seen the line up? All the other facts are kinda unnecessary after you’ve seen the line up. Like, really. I’m not even kidding right now. It’s actually why I placed this fact last because if it were the first fact then you wouldn’t have bothered to read everything else. We’ll be having DJ MC Ronthug, DJ Ace Ramos, Funk Avy, Deuce, Roda King, Carlo Atendido, Ron Poe, and Steal. If you haven’t been living a pretty basic af life for the past few years, then you would know why these DJs are Manila’s Best! They’ve been to every single best raves and parties all around town. Uniting them all as never done before would be incredible.The party will also be hosted by Zoe Alfonso, Axell, and Miyuki. I have the biggest girl crush on Zoe Alfonso!
Believe me now?
See you there.

Catching in the Zobel Fair


VM Week has just ended and I must say it has been a really great fair for me. I was a catcher, an Interbatch Cheerdancer, and a member of the Media Team for Zoob. I’ve had a lot of insights during the fair about catching, since it’s my first time to be a catcher. Here are my thoughts on the allegedly child terrorizing activity in the fair.
First things first (I’m the real-est!- Okay, old joke), I don’t like catching kids. I wouldn’t spend my God-given precious time trying to snag away little monsters who taunt me every now and then. They’d be all like, “You can’t catch me! You can’t catch me!” Well. I’d hate to break it to you darling, but I DON’T WANT TO. 
Here is an actual conversation with a little monster:
I was talking to a friend about catching and then suddenly out of nowhere…
LittleM: Don’t even think about catching me. I swear, if you even touch me something ba will happen to you.
Me: What will happen?
LittleM: It’s so bad I can’t even say it.
So I touched him…
This was coming from a small boy.
Secondly, It is almost impossible to catch freely; Unless, it is dance craze time. Every single one of them either has a green ribbon, a sky blue ribbon, a white ribbon, a gold ribbon, a red ribbon, or even a freaking drawn on ribbon. You know who you are. It’s been a whoops-sorry-didn’t-see-that-there moment almost every after 3 seconds. Not kidding.
Thirdly, where did all the cute catches go– more like where did all the Freshmen, the Sophomores, the Juniors, and the Seniors go? Were they hiding? Were they cutting? Were they all absent? Were they having an underground party I had no idea about- well would I even go if I knew about it? Wow mga addik. Tugs tugan kahit umaga pa!
Fourthly, I don’t get why they want to get caught. I wanted to get caught before because I like meeting new people and doing the dare. If you think about it, doing the dare is the only free fun thing you can do in fair so why not, right? But these kids don’t wanna do the dare, don’t even communicate with the catchers, and just bail and go. I do not see the logic in that. They don’t even run when you catch them, so it can’t be for the thrill of being caught. They’re just weird. Just simply weird.
Fifthly, I still wanna be caught even if I’m a catcher. HAHA. Ironic right, but yeah. Apparently, when you’re a catcher automatically no one wants to catch you. I had to do this segment for Zoob wherein I had to be caught in each booth, but that didn’t go so well. I had to shout. I was literally telling people to catch me. I felt like a little monster.
Anyways, I think that’s it. I don’t really wanna say more because you might get bored. Hope you guys had fun in fair! I think this would be helpful if you’re planning to be a catcher or was a catcher(?)
Love Love Love,

Have fun in ATC with only P100 or less

Hey guys,

I had a girlalush date a few days ago with my best friend Arianna and my late best friend Trixie- Late because she went to Town late. I wanted to do an article about not spending too much when going out while having fun and I saw this as the perfect opportunity, so here it is. Hope you guys find the pictures cute and the packages very useful!

Package 1

package 1

Food: The Metro Bakery is really cheap. You can buy a variety of sandwiches, pastries, and other goods for P7-P20.

Fun: Timezone is a bit overused, but I would want you to try playing in every Timezone in ATC using only P20-P50 load. It’ll be really tiring and really fun, but mostly tiring! You’d be too tired to play some more, which is actually the point of it all.

Package 2

package 2

Food: Chips! CHIPS! CHIPS… and cookies… and bread… and cheese… and potatoes. The list goes on! Not to mention, it’s a whole lot cheaper than eating in the ever so reliable BonChon!

Fun: Connected, an internet shop found in the Cinema area, is the go to place of DOTA addicts, stalking freaks A.K.A. everyone- you know it’s true, and those who just wanna chill for an hour and only have P20 in their pockets.

Package 3 

package 3

Food: Jipangyi or any Food Stall around the mall. I even remember this mini doughnut stall near Jipangyi and it was really good! That’s coming from someone who hates doughnuts. Anyways, Jipangyi is being sold for only P35. Eating in Food Stalls could be a real treat, since it’s exciting and it wouldn’t hurt the pocket if the food wasn’t THAT good.

Fun: The Animal Mobiles near Coffee Bean are for kids- NOT! I asked the guy who manages the place and he tells me the occasional free spirited couple or wack-o bunch of best friends try out the ride. Got the guts? Try it for only P20 per mobile, so you can try squeezing in as many people in a cart and see how that goes!


Yes, you heard it right. Like Jamba juice, we have free add-ons. Here are a few things you can do for free!

extras copy

From top to bottom

Make-up testing: You can try putting on make-up on each other in the Department store or you can even try putting make-up on your boyfie. Ala, Tag Boyfriend Make-up Challenge.

Catch the Fridge: I LOVE OPENING FRIDGES IN APPLIANCE SHOPS! I hate it when they follow me around like I’m going to buy something, so if you say amen to both of my statements then here is a game for you. Try opening as many fridges as you can without getting caught. It’s totally hard, which makes it all the more exciting!

The Parking Lot Chasers: This is a hilarious game. You guys should try it sometime! I would be so g to join you at this one! When you park your car somewhere, you follow by standers around the parking lot and it’s really irritating when they don’t go in their car, which is exactly what were gonna do. Were gonna walk around the parking lot fooling cars. 

Human Barbie Dolls: This was amazing, but a bit overused. Go inside a shop, pick some outfits, and have a little photo shoot inside the dressing room! 

Bookstore Bums: It’s wonderfully great and time consuming chilling inside Fully Booked, Powerbooks, and National- Do people do that? Chill in National? I’m not judging. I’m just asking. This can also be fun if you try reading the back of the books with a certain accent or emotion the book is trying to portray! 

Insert BEALLOYD: The Mistress’ first scene was shot in ATC. It’s the entrance near The Body Shop and if you wanna have a movie-like love scene with your bae then this is the perfect spot! Hello, promposal! 

Bae Watching: Dude, do I need to explain this?

That’s all I have for today, guys! I hope you’ll try any of these packages or you can even mix them up! It’ll be so worth it! Trust me, I did all of them in a day! God Bless!
