SALUTE


Both my maternal and paternal families are in the military. In fact my brother is in the Armed Forces of the Philippines assigned in Bohol as of the moment. I always had fun memories with him when we were younger. I would go with him catch spiders at night, swim in the river, play hide and seek and “santelmo” when there’s a black out, luksong baka, shatong, patintero, ride bikes and do some tricks and other childhood games in the 90’s. We definitely had an active childhood. But we were very different from each other. I was the achiever in class while he was the rascal. But growing up, my brother has always protected me from bullying whether at home or in school. He would always defend me from people calling me names because of my sexuality or the way I act. He was in a way, overprotective. So perfect that he is in the military right now helping to protect the country we love

THE LAST STEP TO LETTING YOU GO

Lambug Beach, Badian Cebu
"At first I asked myself, why would I even go back to a place where I had so much memories with a past love? Will I be able to enjoy the sun rising with the same hope of spending eternity with him? To collect pebbles and seashells we once enjoyed together? To slam my body against ravaging waves while holding his hand? To look at the sunset with so much love in my heart? To be strong enough to look at the same stars we once promised to each other? Will I be able to handle these all by myself? The truth was, I had doubts. But I knew I had to do it and face my fears. Or else I'll stay stuck in my bubble full of anxiety and questions." - Philip Pingoy

MOM'S ADVICE ON DATING AND MEN : LOOK AT HIS SHOES FIRST!



A wise fashionista/fashionisto invests on a classic and timeless piece. Remember that if you want to make the most of your purchase, always go for quality. You may have noticed that most fashion or style bloggers always wear the same pair of shoes in their OOTD looks especially for menswear. Unlike women, men have lesser choices when it comes to different styles of shoes. That is why it is essential that men should look at their shoes the way women do

THE OVERSIZED POLO


One of the latest trends right now is the oversize look. Streetwear has definitely become more accepting of past “NO NOs” in fashion.
