Through Night and Day

Monday, November 12, 2018



This Alessandra De Rossi and Paulo Contis movie had so much to give. It’s a heartwarming story amidst the cold nights, days which they all shot in Iceland. The couple is cute, best friends when they were kids, neighbors too, sweethearts in highschool, got engaged and went to this absolutely gorgeous place in Europe. 


Here’s a couple of things you could find interesting about this film.


Iceland is majestic - the trees, the flowers, the hills are all dreamy. Going around while bare, rustic and freezing, it didn’t matter as long as they are together. They also have weird weather, but the Aurora Borealis is just the perfect setting for romance. They will show that and a whole lot more unbelievable spots in the country.


Paulo’s timing is legendary. He’s funny, we all know that but his inserts here are reminiscent of the boyfriend girlfriend relationship we all wanted.


Alessandra is annoying, but the kind that is cute and if ever she does ask for something impossible, or bad, but she still gets away with it. 



There will be small fights, the kind that hurts and builds up, when you think that you already know each other but when you rely on each other while traveling, you get to measure how much you are willing to sacrifice with each other. Half of the film is funny and heartwarming. In a way you will get to question that coming to the latter part of the movie.



When you get to see the same face everyday, when you find out all the flaws in relationships and the ways of finding your own happiness, do you give up? Do you lose all patience? How do you love? Where will you find yourself if you were in their shoes?



Go figure out by watching Through Night and Day in theaters starting November 14. This is produced by Viva Films, Octoarts Films and is graded A. Maybe that would convince you to watch this film. Don’t cry though, I have to warn you.

He Taught Me To Wear Black

Sunday, November 11, 2018


If all else fails, wear black. (Here's to my favorite black shirt!)


The holidays are near and yes - you’ve got to bring out the new clothes, to be preppy, presentable, look good on any angle.


My Dad told me a couple years back that “If other people try to pull you down, if you have detractors - much of who say bad things about you; these same people can’t look down on you when you are dressed better than them - and act like a gentleman. You can also wear black.


He’s got a point and I’ve always had that in the back of my mind whenever I feel the stresses of work - like today.


Black shirt, is fueled by black coffee. If you get stained, no one would even know!



My life revolves around going to events, about 3-4 in a good day, sometimes 9 as of my personal record. Now think about the most comfortable piece of clothing you could wear, think of something basic, something like a BLACK SHIRT.


That’s something that I always wear. I consider this a classic piece. Imagine how you can actually wear it in so many ways- from rugged worn with comfy jeans, to a bit more casual with a light jacket, or to a semi formal occasion with a light coat on top, or go full on suit with a dressed shirt for those classy ones, you can never stay out of style. Plus it is so easy to actually take care of it.


Some little color prints, but still black. :) Even the gorgeous Maymay is in her little black dress (LBD) stunning isn't she?


Quirky color prints, still black.


Black Leather Jacket, Black Sweater, Black Shirt, I shoot celebrities for a profession and I wear black!


Cotton shirts should always be rinsed in lukewarm or cold water so it doesn’t shrink. I made a mistake of doing that in the past and got all my muscle shirts turn into hanging ones, I looked like Winnie the Pooh on steroids. Right after you take them out of the washer and dryer, you should shake them out to form so you get to minimize wrinkling on these shirts. With the fabric softeners these days, sometimes you don’t even have to iron them at all and just wear them after hanging. Though it would always be a smart choice to use a hot iron so you wouldn’t look like a prune when gatherings with friends and family happen, you will get teased that you may be chased by horses (that’s the ironing board which we call a horse in the PH). Make sure also that when you use the drying cycle, it shouldn’t be too hot, make it shrink free!


White insides, BLACK jackets can make you look thinner in person. Even without working out!

Even Professor Snape wears black! Avada Kedavra!

Even here, in my favorite BLACK Batman Shirt, viral sensation Mader Sitang approves I look good in black!




My Dad also taught me to use a Lint Roller because black shirts often get that when washing. You also have to stroke it in one direction so you wouldn’t look like a crossword puzzle or get laughed at. I get frugal sometimes that I use every nook and cranny of the roller before I tear it off and get them all clean. You’ll look like a million dollars with a basic black shirt, carry it that way too. You’ve got to exude expensive to look and feel like it. Trust me, I’ve worn a ton of it that costs a few hundred bucks but even look better than the designer ones, not joking!

I wear a lot of suits, even one available in Wharton that THE Rajo Laurel designed as his line for RTW




Coats for most that are made of wool or partly wool should never be washed in tough settings. Your washing machines should be set to delicate or hand wash cycle so you don’t get your clothes ruined. The water temperature is also important, (so you need a machine that  does the job) don’t simply put it on a dryer, the spin dry would do because if you do it WILL shrink. I thought I grew a size when I did it to my Trench Coat and winter jacket. It felt so close to becoming a black Stay Pufft Marshmallow man.


The classic Black Trench Coat

Black shirt inside a suit, black tie, perfect!

When Jollibee is sad, he hugs the person in a Black Plaid Shirt


As for the formal coats and tuxedos, don’t even attempt to put them in washing machines because the proper care for that is to dry clean it after use. You can do it only for the shirts and other pieces inside (if you’ve got a 3 or 5 piece suit). Never even throw away the suit bag that comes with it when you purchase them. If you accidentally do, you can use an airtight container which you can buy in malls. Use a mothball, then put garlic plus a wooden stick and a hammer because Dracula might get interested. We wouldn’t want that to happen LOL!


I learned it all from my Dad 🐮❤️


Wearing this classic piece of clothing is one of the smartest thing my Dad passed on to me. Although he’s not into it that much lately, it is sound advice. Those stains won’t appear (unless you are the dirty lol), red wine won’t matter (when your romantic dinner turns sweeter), you can confuse people even if you wear it twice (hello jeans!), you don’t have to think about color combinations (you’ll even shock people wearing shades of gray and white), plus it works no matter what color your skin is or what your hair looks like. You will also get lots of comparisons to the richest men in the world like Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. That’s a good thing to be remembered as. Also, get a machine that takes care of fabrics well, not the type that just spins everything in a cycle not distinguishing the rough and delicates. Electrolux always has them, I know.

When my Dad passed last April (don’t get sad for me, I pray), I got advised by my Mom to tone down my colorful ensembles as we were in mourning; but little did she know my Dad taught me A LOT about it a long time ago. He wasn’t a guy who was super over the top stylish, he was an average joe, but I darn learned these things from him. He told me to wear black, wear sunscreen, lay on the bed flat when sleeping (so your wrinkles won’t show), invest in clothes that you can wear in almost any occasion and always be, a gentleman.

Things like these remind me of him, I miss and love my Dad. I miss him everyday.

These traits, aside from the clothes are my TIMELESS STYLE. I learned that from a good man and I will never forget what he did for me (he also did a lot of things for other people). Now tell me, what timeless pieces do you take care of (more than anything else) in your closet?


Now what are you going to wear tomorrow? I have a hunch what color it will be. Let me know! :)

Take a Look at Annie Lux






Been a while, but I’m sure you’ve missed Annie Lux. She’s the singer and songwriter from Calgary Canada. Back in 2015, she released her first solo extended play album called “Lux” through Viva Records. In that album, the single “Yesterday” racked 40,000 views and got good comments and reviews depicting that it was like an international artist, check out this video below.






This November, she is releasing another one called “PLAY” which will be available in Spotify, iTunes and digital stores. She also has her other songs available in the platform. Currently she is in Boston to pursue her passion for music. She’s planning to graduate from Berklee School of Music in a couple of years and couldn’t be more excited how she’d turn out after that.







Annie also gets invited to Filipino community events one of which is the Fiesta Filipino Festival in Calgary, Alberta in Canada. She performed here together with artists Bela Padilla, Yassi Presman and Xian Lim. They also had comedian Chad Kinis in the event which brought them all laughing out loud.





Annie also did the Radio Disney Berklee edition at the Berklee Performance Center. Here she also performer and became one of the seven producers in the show. On October 29th, she had her first solo concert called “Bañaga” at the fabulous Berklee Dining Hall where she performed some covers and her recent original songs, some of which are also part of her new EP album. If you wanna know more, you can follow her @AnnieLuxMusic on IG, Facebook and Twitter too. When she finishes school in May, she plans to pursue doing her own brand of music in the Philippines and the global stage. She’s very talented and worthy, she’s taking her time, and I hope she does the country proud when she gets back from the uni.
