Movie: Goyo (2018)
A subdued, painful, and introspective cinematic masterpiece. Watch it, love it, support it.
#SikatPinoy and why I love local
Loving, celebrating and supporting local products is difficult when our malls are saturated with big-name “local” brands (which outsource their manufacturing to China and import their models from Korea) and foreign labels.

Though I’ve only read bits and pieces (what I…

Music: Filipino Talent x OPM
I’m the definition of mainstream trash with hipster garbage on the side (has anyone ever cared to define that aesthetic ever?); my musical tastes are limited to (American) Top 40 hits and the occasional female indie solo artist.
