Photos: Agenda Long Beach Recap

Recap of the Agenda Long Beach Show! Probably one of the best trips I’ve taken in my life… Sometimes you can only make sense of your path in reverse. In hindsight, there were so many things leading up to that week.

Here’s my story (heads up: I wrote a long story after the jump!)

Photos: Love Is In The Air

Part deux of my Boracay photo album- because I wanted to put up a special post for my good friends who got married last month on that island of white-sand heaven. #rolandoandsabrina

Boracay is my favorite island in the world. There’s something about the vibe that makes you slow down and just enjoy the present. The sun… the water… the people… the 7 dollar massages on the beach… the fresh mango shakes… the sunsets… It’s always been my personal paradise when I was growing up in the Philippines. No wonder so many people declare their love on that island.

Photos: Back to Boracay

Here is my incredibly delayed post about my trip to Boracay last month. But in reality, it feels like 5 months has passed since then because of everything I had to do.

Time has a funny was of speeding up & throwing a million changes in your face all at once. You just have to be ready to catch everything, or as much as you can handle. Jhene Aiko said it perfectly in my recent Listen post, “Life can get wild when… you’re caught in a whirlwind… lost in the world when… you’re chasing the win.” (I’ve been listening to this song a lot. It resonates somehow…)

But anyway, here are some of my photos from my Boracay trip.

Photos: My Macau

Ruins of Saint Pauls

ChillinLast week, Amanda came to visit, and we took a short trip from HK to Macau to take some meetings. Well, she took the meetings, while I took a breather from the fast-paced current called HK Life. As I’ve never been to Macau before, the only impression I had of it was from the tales of those who have been- they keep saying, “It’s Just Like Vegas.”

While yes, the rise of casinos does remind you of the brightly lit strip, me- on the other hand being the forever wanderer and seeker- was still searching for pockets of what could make this city more than that. A tough challenge considering I was only there for a day.

Maybe my photos can tell a better story…

Photos: Kaws | Clean Slate Exhibition

Kaws Clean Slate Kaws Clean Slate

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. I haven’t seen a Kaws exhibit since maybe around 6 or 7 years ago in LA, so it was nice to hear that there would be one here in HK. This recent exhibit entitled “Clean Slate” was about “wiping out the past and starting over again.” This 7 meter tall statue, which would usually stand solo, now carries with it 2 youngins- pretty much showing us that he’s moved on to other parts of his life. I could resonate with this theme lately because it does feel like that phase where everyone just wants to hit the refresh button and move forward.

Throwback Thursday.

I decided to do a little throwback post to my trip to New York last September 2012. Today I was looking through these photos while I was cleaning out my laptop and I remembered how fun the whole week was. I was sent there by Runway TV Asia to do cover the shows at NY Fashion Week. It was a whole week of non-stop interviews and filming, and the experience was so amazing 🙂

Here are some of the photos I took around the city as well as back-stage/during work…

Photos: Quiet Moments

IMG_9834

IMG_9910A lot of these photos are of the quiet moments.

Not literally though, the first photo above was taken while I was crossing the street in NYC, and the next photo above is of strobe lights obviously taken in a club in SG, and that is not a quiet place.

But this post is more of those quiet moments in my head… Because we all know you can be in such a crowded place, but experience such an isolated feeling. And at that point, time freezes and everything around you goes silent.

….and you’re there, watching the moment…..

These are my photos I took during those moments. My Photo Diary after the Jump…
