This Happened In Anotherland… Were you there?

Last May 29, 2015, we tore the south down with the sickest party that ever touched Filinvest grounds. I know some of you guys missed out in all the fun because ya’ll had to do something on Saturday morning or were really not in the mood- Boo! Since I’m awesome, I have decided to a little something for you guys! For those who missed Anotherland, I’ll be recalling the experience in writing so it’ll be like you guys were there too. Here it goes!
Opening (5pm-11pm): You arrive at the venue a little before 11, because who goes to a party at 5pm right? You could hear the music from your car window, even when you were still a few blocks away. The music was booming by the time you actually got out of your car. You walk the long road before reaching Anotherland until you see it. You see the barriers to the gates of another place, another world. Cars are lined up at the opening of the play ground. They’re filled with booming music, accessories, and girls. You feel like you just stepped in Furious 7. You give out your ticket. You get a stub and a glow stick, because you’re VIP. The place has food and tattoo shops inside the Gold section. You make your way to VIP and you see the stage. It was illuminating and the music was pounding harder as the night grew. There weren’t a lot of people yet, but you could already see the potential of some. You drank and ate while waiting for the crowd to grow.
Main Act (12pm-Onwards): The crowd got bigger all of a sudden. A lot of people you actually know started piling in the fest grounds. You and your friends greeted everyone else. The main act started playing and the crowd goes wild. People start pilling to the front giving out their best moves. You join in because who wouldn’t? You dance till your feet hurt. You know you’re not the best dancer out there, but at this moment you really just don’t care because everyone seems to be enjoying each other’s presence. You follow every command of the hosts. If they say put your hands up, then you do as your told. It seems like anything is possible at this moment. You could go for anything and do anything. Now the night goes on in your will. Will you talk to the hottie? Will you break out in dance? Will you triumph in the drinking games on the sides of VIP? It’s up to you.
The following day: Well, whatever you did yesterday made sure you aren’t getting out of bed properly today. You know maybe you should cancel your plans today.
Wish you went to Anotherland? I know you do. Don’t worry, Axell will providing us with more parties to come!

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.

Why you don’t cheer up

Hello world,

I’m 15 years old and I believe that I am in that awkward stage. Can I get an Amen, Momma? My mom believes that everyone experiences the “Abnoy” stage and that me and my sister are currently in it. I don’t think I have the guts to be rebellious and sneak out of the house at 3am to party with my friends, so I’m more of the mopping around, I hate my life, cry my eye balls out type of “Abnoy”. Well, thats what I think.

Sometimes I feel like crying about the simplest things or about nothing at all, so I watch The Notebook or The Fault in Our Stars over again just so I have a reason to cry. This goes on for days. I even think to myself, “Why the hell am I not in The Pursuit of Happiness, Kid Cudi? I’m a junior in high school and every one says that high school was the “best of days of their lives”! Bleh, Etchoseros.” Leading to the day I barricaded myself in my room and re-watched the whole Awkward Series and saw this;

Sweet Baby Jesus, Thank you for Jenna’s Dad!

I then realized that this is so totally correct-ermahgerd. I’m playing with you guys. I don’t talk like that, but I do believe that this quote is amazingly correct. Don’t you ever wonder why is it when we’re depressed and all we stay depressed for days, whether it’s because your 3 year relationship ended, or you failed your mid-term exams, or you realized you can’t make fetch happen, you just can’t get out of the rut. Well, it’s because you do all the wrong things while you’re sad. You freaking watch The Notebook again just so you have a reason to cry. For Heaven’s Sake, don’t be like me.

It would be terribly cruel to present you with a problem and have no solution. That’s just inhumane, so here are a few things you can do to get out of that depression cycle.

What you usually do: You eat your feelings out. You get that bucket of ice cream and those BFF Fries all for yourself because food is love and you need love right now. After gaining 5 pounds in one sitting you look in a mirror and cry some more because you think you look like a total fatty. Really? Are you kidding me, gurl?

What you should do: Yes, you binge for maybe an hour. You deserve it girl. After that shining Splenda-less hour you motivate yourself to look so man good that everyone will be thinking “OOOH GET EM” every time you pass by. Then you workout, start small but aim big! It’s okay if you aren’t that good at least you’re working out. You don’t have to do it regularly you just need enough bragging rights to say, “Oh yeah. Sorry I’m late I was working out.”


What you usually do: You re-watch all them #hugot movies. Here’s a list of your movie guilty pleasures; Pearl Harbor, The Notebook, The Fault in Our Stars, A walk to rememeber, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Vow, The Last Song, Dirty Dancing (ala New Girl Style), Pretty in Pink, Another Cinderella Story, Hachiko, Gone with the Wind, Marley and me, Titanic, UP, Lost in Translation, Ghost, and those huhu-why-is-the-world-so-cruel movies. Don’t even think about watching these movies. Don’t. Just don’t.

What you should do: Download Vine on your smartphone, Read Buzzfeed.com or watch their videos, you can also type 8th Grade Make-up Tutorials on Youtube. I swear you will laugh. It’ll be ten times better than crying when Hazel Grace talks about infinities and math.

What you usually do: Your friends try to help you and they even ask you to go out with them. You become dramatic and shut them out. Saying, you just can’t handle people at the moment. They go out anyways and you see the photos the next day then you’re all mad because they’re bad friends for going without you. Wew. Ala stupid lang ang peg.

What you should do: You go out with your friends, duh. The tricky part is I dare you not to talk about your problems. I want you to pretend like nothing happened and just let the fun times come rolling in. You do not want to cry in public and you don’t want people treating you in a special manner just because you’re depressed. You’re better than that!

What you usually do: You stalk all the people you hate and you read every single detail about their lives. You then find out that the person loves french fries, so you deliberately try to hate french fries because he/she loves them. If you know the person more there will be more things that will remind you of him/her.

What you should do: YOU STALK YOURSELF! This really helps. After looking through all your “nene” pictures and remembering all your problems before you think to yourself, “Hey! If I survived that then I can survive this!”. You’ll also be thinking, “OHMYGOD… I was so ugly before. Thank God I’m hot now”. Just kidding guys. Plus, you’ll see all the “nene” pics of your best friend. Yay! More leverage. This also helps; http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/594643 Enjoy!

What you usually do: #HUGOT Music to da max. You finally appreciate Taylor Swift music. She’s like your soul sister in times like this. You sing your heart out and you say things like, “PREACH IT SISTER! I feel ya!”. You then start crying because you feel so pathetic talking to figurative Taylor Swift.

What you should do: Hello, 8Tracks and Spotify. I’m usually the happiest when I uncover really cool new songs. I can talk to other people about it ask them if they know the song and they’ll be like no! then you smirk and be all oh you don’t know it! Look for the happy upbeat songs and make your sad days playlist. Wake up to a pocket full of sunshine, shower to a pocket full of sunshine, and dance to a pocket full of sunshine. Do it Emma Stone Style!

What you usually do: You live life normally and monotonously. You let life take control of you. You make the negativity a part of you. A part of your sadness. Sadness plus Sadness is not happiness. Happiness needs effort and the right amount of fluff.

What you should do: Shake things up! Life is too short to wear the same black patent shoes. Mess around and stop looking back. Be the you, you’ve always wanted to be because no one can control your emotions except for yourself. You are loved and loved a lot by everyone and by him(God). Date that guy you never thought would be the one, Go parasailing even if you’re afraid of heights, because you are not normal and that’s what makes you interesting. Do not dwell in sadness.


Hope you guys liked this! If you did then take a drive, roll down the windows, and shout I LOVE LIFE to the whole world.


Love you all!
