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(?)

NotMikaReyes and Biancabarbiedolls in the Reese’s Throwback Festival


Hi guys,

Yesterday I went to an event for Candy, it was the Reese’s Throwback Festival and here are some of the pictures and thoughts I had during the Festival!

Pagpumipila sa linya mag selfie muna!


Left to right: Jessa, Bianca, and Me. Then this angel (Jessa) popped up and led us around the festival-Media Style! We didn’t have to line up for anything. It was so fun because me and Bianca were like, “Oh yeah! A listers kasi in Kim K eh!” HAHAHAHA!



We played lots of games, but my favorite game was the Reese’s eating game and then you’d have to shoot the wrapper in a bin! We were so happy. Free chocolate betchez!




I even had to jump on a trampoline to get Reese’s. Hindi halata na chocolate addict kami!


And because I’m not such a chocolate fan (I’m being sarcastic here), I took a picture with a gigantic Reese’s Nut Bar. I think I might get Diabetes.


Yehey! We got all the stamps and can now claim our rewards! In the rewards place you spin a wheel and whichever prize it lands on that’s what you get, but since Candy is so freaking cool and being Media is “da bomb-s”…


We got everything. As in…



When they were filling up our bags with freebies our eyes got wider and wider every time they placed something inside, so here’s what we got; A Reese’s backpack, cap, tote, baggie, shirt, pen, USB, Monopod, and of course, Reese’s chocolates! Can I please be a Reese’s Ambassador?



We were walking around when we saw the Mrs. Fields booth. We saw the Reese’s cookies and we were talking about buying one. We asked the counter girl and she said it was P59. We took out our wallets and then they suddenly said it was for free because we’re Media. OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS! We were bouncing up and down! FREE FOOD! It was so good pa, I died in the inside!

I met Phil Younghusband. I asked him if he still trains in Zobel, but apparently he hasn’t been to our school for a long time. Well that’s okay, he had a hot accent anyways. That was enough!


We were asked to sit in front with the parents of the performers in Never The Strangers. Phil was right behind us and his mere presence gave me chills, but we had to act cool because you know you have to. This dad in the picture was so sweet. He was talking to me throughout their performance telling me things like, “Yan o! Anak ko yan nagdu-drums!” “Alam mo kakagraduate lang nila sa Ateneo!” “Magka-klase nga sila eh!” What a QT!


Here’s Never The Strangers! Oh! I have kwento pala. Before they went on stage, we saw them near Coffee Bean and I was telling Bianca, “HUY! I think that’s them let’s go to them na!” and she was all like, “What if that’s not them! That would be so embarrassing!” When we got out of the restroom we saw them on stage. TOLD YOU I WAS RIGHT!


Itchyworms performed after Never The Strangers. Everyone went ballistic! I loved their first song and even sang along! Pero the Akin ka nalang part lang, ’cause I didn’t know the other words and there were hardcore fans in front of me, so if I freestyled they might have bitch slapped me.

I also met Anthony Libre the Lead Vocalist of Never The Strangers. While talking we eventually got into a funny misunderstanding;

Anthony: Oh so are you guys still in college?

Bianca: Yeah, I am.

(He looks to me for an answer)

Me: Well I… Uhmm

(Bianca laughs and then I laugh)

Anthony: Oh it’s okay I’m not in college anymore too.

Me: No uhm I’m…

(Then he starts talking and talking)

Yeah dude, if you read this. I’m in high school. HAHA!


After everything all the Itchyworms fans started mauling over the band. Then suddenly fireworks started coming out and I was expecting all the fans to stop mauling over them, but no. How wrong was I. They we’re like F*CK THE FIREWORKS I’M GETTING A PICTURE WITH ITCHYWORMS!

So that was my experience during the Reese’s Fair! Were you there too? Share your experience!
