Attend: Global Mala Manila 2015

GlobalMala2015

Manila, Philippines

Another year goes by, and the Global Mala Project grows bigger and bigger in Manila. People always ask me if there’s a yoga community in the Philippines, and this event is something I tell them to check out.

This year’s event is lined up for September 26, 2015 at Whitespace. It’s going to be a full day of amazing yoga sessions and talks. I was so thrilled to see this come together last year and am really looking forward to being home for this. ❤

Tickets go on sale Aug 26. (P650 pesos for early bird rate, P750 pesos for regular tickets). 100% of the proceeds will go to this year’s beneficiary, Children’s International.

Work: Calyxta Cover Shoot

Calyxta

Hello self-promotion! I normally feel shy and self-conscious when I talk about my work, but this time I don’t really feel that awkward. Maybe because this shoot isn’t about “me!” but more about my relationship with my older sister Teresa.

Manila-based beauty website Calyxta recently featured me and Teresa as their June cover girls. (Thanks Guys!) I don’t always get to shoot with Ter, especially now that we live in different cities. We are also on different paths, with me on my own solo journey, and Teresa, on becoming a mom.

What I loved about this shoot was that it explored our relationship as sisters in the industry, and revealed new layers about how it was for us growing up.

Meet: Teresa Herrera, TV Presenter, Actress, & Art Consultant

Teresa Angel

To the public, she is a famous model, TV presenter, actress and now, art consultant. To me, she is my big sister. She’s the person who tells us siblings what books to read, places to go, friends of hers we should meet, and most importantly…. the rules to break.

I wanted to interview Teresa because I often felt like some of the articles I would read about her don’t quite capture “her.” As her youngest sis, I have always had a different point of view when it came to her allure. That’s what I wanted to write here: a glimpse of our relationship, the usual way we speak to each other, and a bit of digging into her other sides that I witnessed growing up.

Excited for you all to meet my family… starting with Teresa.
