Hey friends! Got nothing to do this April 18 (Saturday)? Why don't you dress up as your favorite DC Comics Superhero, go to The Block Atrium, SM North EDSA, and be one with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment as we set a world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as DC Comics Super Heroes?

I've always wanted to participate in a cosplay event dressed as my favorite superhero, Superman. But capes and tights are not my thing so I'm settling on being 50% Superman and 50% Clark Kent.

Brought three (3) bags for my recent trip to the beach last weekend. A weekender, a medium-sized backpack, and a smaller one. This was the latter. Compared to the first two, it's the heaviest! It held these items:
GQ April 2015 - Jon Hamm
NIVEA Men Active Care SPF 15 lip balm
Ye!! Portable Speaker
Gatsby deodorant AQUA
Ye!! Energy Pack
Nintendo DS Lite
Gatsby styling wax
iPhone 6 Plus with AndMesh case
The Blood of Olympus book by Rick Riordan
Jaws 3 DVD
Jaws The Revenge DVD
Macbook Air "13
Apple USB Superdrive
Yes. Believe it or not, everything's color coordinated.

What I like about the bag:
  • Durable
  • Sturdy but lightweight
  • Waterproof, stain resistant, and machine washable
  • Fabrics used are free from harmful treatments, chemicals and dyes

The last movie I watched on the big screen was The Cobbler.

It was about a cobbler, yes, you guessed it right --haha, who get to magically live another person's life face by stepping in that person's shoes. The movie was okay, though, not life-changing. But it got me thinking, "What if The Cobbler was real? What if one day I meet a person with a similar face wearing my Chucks?" But then again, there's a reason why I collect shoes. So that I won't abuse a pair and resort to bringing it to a "magical" shoemaker for repair. Another good thing is, I'm a size 8. The cobbler was 10 1/2. Whew!

But why step in somebody else's shoes to understand and know that person's story when you can let your shoes just do the talking? Shoes that were made by you...

It's that season once again when the ideal (and rightly so) colors of clothing to wear are of the lighter spectrum. Lighter colors reflect sunshine --resulting to lesser heat absorption. But ideally, "loose" should go hand-in-hand with light colors if you're the one to suggest. Tight-fitting clothing, regardless if it's light in color, restricts air to flow between you and your muscle t-shirt. My go-to loose and light clothing of choice for the season? The crisp white shirt.

I have around 10 in my collection. It is classic, clean (duh?), and easy to style. I usually pair it with jeans --a no-brainer.

White also projects freshness! Just spray on a light cologne for you to not just look, but smell, the part, too.

On a deeper level, white represents peace, purity, and new beginnings. A clean slate and fresh start. That's why World Vision partnered with Zonrox GentleClean for the White Event.

One of my plans this summer is to discover new places to eat at regardless if it's at an upscale restaurant or at an interesting hole in the wall. What if the charm of the latter can be found at the former's setup? Even better!

Now, who wants some tapenade?

I haven't actually visited Restaurant Tapenade but I'm planning to in the coming days or so and once I do, well, I'm gonna enjoy this feast in this succession...

First, a taste of tapenade over some Ciabatta,
Tapenade - a Provencal paste or dip, made from black olives, capers, and anchovies.
then a slice of pizza,

some kebabs,

I've always wanted a portion in my house where I can just sit back, relax, and simply bask in the calmness surrounding me. With the exemption of the loo, okay?

Of course, everything has to be white. Mainly. Furniture, books, and gadgets which can double as weights/displays. Like this Braven 570. I think its clean and crisp sound, aside from it being white (other colors are available, too), is the perfect complement to the serenity I'm aiming for that soon-to-be-constructed room.

Unlike my other wireless speakers which are compact in size, I really don't have any issue with the sound it emits because it's bigger. Bigger gadgets has its advantages too, you know. Let's start with that.

I know there's a motorbike here somewhere.
Thread 365 shirt
Forever 21 jeans
Timberland boots

And a leather jacket.

And some badass tattoo.

There you go.

Kidding about the last two items, obviously (though there's a tattoo... somehow), but the motorbike? There's actually one which you can win if you join iconic American denim brand Wrangler's digital competition True Wanderer.
