New Poems over @ We Are A Website!

It’s always such a gratifying experience to have my poems put out into the world, ready to go on their own journeys and become friends with the rest of the world, but what’s more fun is knowing that your work and their stories have become a part of a bigger organism, a whole kaleidoscope ofContinue reading “New Poems over @ We Are A Website!”

Bournemouth Bound (Beachside)

The concept of enjoying your time anywhere ultimately depends on the company, in my opinion.¬†Even if my barkada‘s initial plan of spending three days in Bournemouth via hotel turned to sixteen hours and a subsequent sleepover back in London, if that means just being with some of the brightest souls in the world, then it’llContinue reading “Bournemouth Bound (Beachside)”

Lost in London now out on iBooks!

It’s been a while since I posted anything! Hi guys! It’s also been quite a long summer for me. What with my work, being out with friends, watching Miss Saigon (blog entry on that soon!) and just plain ol’ writing, I’m glad to say that my 2013 poetry book Lost in London is now availableContinue reading “Lost in London now out on iBooks!”

“10736 Kilometres”

I like looking through the pictures that tell me the hundred stories of your piercing eyes, electricity, your arms around me, my love, my safety. I captured the look on their faces before the plane took me away from the sun, the sky and the sands. You remember the look on their faces after anotherContinue reading ““10736 Kilometres””

Pure soul, pure smile: a love letter to June Marieezy

I was, once again, late to where I planned on going, thanks to my love for sleep and the stereotype turned proven fact of “Filipino time”. This time I was headed to a day party in Hackney by Juicebox and Suitcase Magazine, with food, drinks and music from KAASI, Joe Hertz and a live setContinue reading “Pure soul, pure smile: a love letter to June Marieezy”

“Leaving Soon” by Yolanda Moon

Another gem by this Manila duo. The song captures both the heartache lingering from a crumbled romance and the heat and the summer vibes of the Philippines, elements which I long for since I returned to London. Yolanda Moon shows here their musical consistency through the melancholic lyrics and upbeat yet chill tunes, which isContinue reading ““Leaving Soon” by Yolanda Moon”

Isle of Wight Bound

One of my life long dreams is to live under the same roof with my closest friends like they do in How I Met Your Mother and FRIENDS, where we would have to cook for ourselves, take turns cleaning the toilet (except me), stay up all night and along the way have laughtrips and argumentsContinue reading “Isle of Wight Bound”

New Poems out via The Traveling Poet

I’m always happy to tell everyone about new poetry that’s out, and today is one of those really gratitude-inducing days. Check out The Traveling Poet, headed by the creative genius Jeremiah Walton. I really like how two of the main themes of this blogzine is travel and youth, a topic that coincides perfectly with myContinue reading “New Poems out via The Traveling Poet”

Ten Signs You’re a Filipino in London

Contrary to our parents who see London as a land of opportunity and the fruit of their labours (maraming salamat Mommy and Daddy!), the British capital is coloured a different shade in the eyes of the succeeding generation of Filipinos: us. And since we’re the generation that’s had exposure to both Filipino and British youth,Continue reading “Ten Signs You’re a Filipino in London”

“Virgo” by June Marieezy (2013)

While her first EP “Heavy Eyes”¬†leans towards more of an urban sound, a perfect soundtrack for the midnight city dweller, June Marieezy’s second collection of songs sounds more like the creative outlet of her soul, a soul that is pure and carefree, means well and can take you to places that only the power ofContinue reading ““Virgo” by June Marieezy (2013)”
