Freeway x Lucio San Pedro: A Tribute Just in Time

To honor the man that greatly affected the course of Philippine music and culture, this fall season, Freeway is paying tribute to the man from Angono, Rizal - Maestro Lucio San Pedro. On this 9th installation of National Artist Collector's Series, Maestro Lucio's works inspired the latest collection of Freeway, which are now readily available at all Freeway and The Row stores.

Just in time for the celebration of Maestro Lucio San Pedro's 100th birthday, Freeway excitedly launched last May 28, at The Row, Glorietta, their fall collection, which is inspired by the greatness and music of the National Artists for Music. Stage, movie and TV actress Rachel Alejandro hosted the event and even rendered songs of love for all to feel the passion shared to us by the man who's distinct and nationalistic music transfuses from one generation to another.

I was there to witness it all, from the guests speakers - who were mostly sons and daughters of the late maestro, namely Kristy San Pedro Salita, Rhodora San Pedro delos Santos, Alberto delos Santos and Professor Gabby San Pedro Rojas, did a special interview with Rachel onstage.

The Barbie World called Posh Nails

It was like staying inside a doll house for two pampering hours as I enjoy my hand and foot spa. And despite of the striking pink and purple and yellow colors, I managed to relax on what seemed to be an unplanned "me time" here in this Barbie world called Posh Nails - Tomas Morato.

Summer is really a busy season for me. From local out of town adventures, to international city tours that are so memorable, I honestly cannot believe that I made it all in a span of two months. And now as this flirty season is starting to say goodbye and as the clear sky darkens and starts to cry, I'm also starting to slow down and making my "me time" on the busy metropolis worthwhile. And by me time in metropolis, I mean - Spa Time. Hihihi.

Located at the mezzanine floor of CTTM Building in the corner of Tomas Morato and Timog Avenue in Quezon City, this small but very posh space was my piece of heaven last week as they pamper me with services that are truly good and relaxing.

The Circuit Fest Generation!

Young music, young bands, young skaters, new venue, new fest to celebrate - if there are matters that are old in this concert, I guess they are all outside the venue waiting for their sons and daughters who are jumping up and down and banging their heads to the music brought the 9 international bands that completed this Circuit Fest 2013. Seriously! Hahaha!

It was an amazing feeling to be surrounded by this young generation (not to say that I'm that old) who were so reminding me of my high school days when boy bands were the coolest people on earth. Hahaha! Geared in their super comfortable outfit, which I think I managed to go with, at exactly 4 p.m., everyone was all ears to the first international act who was up on stage, Megan Nicole!

Circuit Makati

I honestly didn't know that this kid was that famous here, so yeah, the crowd was singing along with her through her hits that set the mood on this reviving concert.

Sir Richard Branson Go Drag on AirAsia Flight to Kuala Lumpur

I wanna believe that what happened to me last weekend was just a dream - flying out of the country for the first time to see Kuala Lumpur via the first flight of Zest Air on that lovely city m- oh, it was super amazing to be real. But looking at the pictures that I took after accidentally catching the arrival of AirAsia flight with billionaire Sir Richard Branson aboard on it, who is all dressed in red blazer and red skirt just like the rest of AirAsia flight attendants, oh, that is not a dream! That was a real fun!

It was said that two years ago, Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson and AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes had a bet on an upcoming Formula One race in Abu Dhabi. Unfortunately for Branson, his team was left behind, making the Fernades team leads and gave him the chance to won the bet.

And with that, a special AirAsia X charity flight left Perth, Australia last Sunday, May 12, and landed on Kuala Lumpur, Malysia's Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) with Sir Richard Branson all smile while strutting his red outfit.

Jun Magsaysay is Sir Chief's Guy!

With a lot of different government and non-government organizations endorsing the guy from Zambales, I wasn't really shocked to know that the most in-demand actor nowadays, Mr. Richard Yap a.k.a "Sir Chief" of ABS-CBN's Be Careful With My Heart, is endorsing and actually campaigning for the guy who is a son of "our guy", Ramon "Jun" Magsaysay, Jr.

I had a wonderful chance last day, together with some local media personalities, to talk to these two lads who share same interest - to bring goodness into every Filipinos lives. And though it was too early, I must say that they managed to perked me up due to their really light mood that brought delight to everyone who attended.

With or without this press conference, I'm admitting that Senator Jun Magsaysay is on my list of senators to vote this coming May 13, 2013 election. A guy who is a son of a president who served his country wholeheartedly, if there's one more reason why I'm okay with political dynasty, Senator Jun Magsaysay is one of them.
