Finally. More colors!

Thread 365, Terry S.A.'s homegrown brand of essential apparel, took inspiration from fresh and happy memories for its latest collection #COLORPOP. The collection includes pocket crews (for men), striped bateaus, V-necks and tanks (for women) in popping pastels and vibrant colors; all reminiscent of the best times you've ever had.
Made of Thread 365's signature cotton material, the collection ensures a soft and breathable feel perfect for any occasion at any time.

In line with the new #COLORPOP collection, Thread 365 has tapped renowned photographer Mark Nicdao in launching a photo project highlighting colorful and diverse personalities exuding class and zeal in their respective fields.


In case you didn't know (which is kinda impossible if you're a fan), our favorite Cebu-based clothing brand has opened its first official store in Manila!

A watch is the best excuse of a guy to accessorize that's why it's ok to own a lot. But if you're wiser, get one that's versatile enough to be worn from day...
to night. Both watches featured here are different I know, but you get the idea.
Now this is what I'm talking about!

Boracay is my idea of adventure. Why? 'coz I get to do things I don't (and can't) usually do on a daily basis. Like walking around topless, for example. For lack of a "macho" physique, that's daring enough for me.
Now, moving on…
Topless (lol) or not, one thing I can't leave home (or the hotel I'm staying at) without is a watch. I like keeping track of my time especially when I'm out and about on my daily "adventures".
In the midst of all these daring adventures, it's imperative that you do it in style. Veloci stands for the young and the fashionable *ahem*, the ones who face up to their biggest fears and do it with a daredevil attitude. They're the ones who don't forget to look good *double ahem*, no matter if they're hiking up the highest cliffs, or surfing the most treacherous waves —they know that making an effort to look good also means loving yourself.

Veloci comes in five collections, each with its own distinct cha…


One of my guilty pleasures in life is Youtube. I like checking out videos of unknown yet talented individuals and their "journey" towards Youtube stardom. One Youtube star I appreciate is Sam Tsui. The guy's talented! But more than his mashups,

acapellas, and covers,

I've always liked his collaborations with Kurt Hugo Schneider.

Especially on this parody of High School Musical. Hilarious!

Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

If you were to ask me who my style inspiration is, I'd honestly say, I really don't know. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that I'm stylish to begin with. I just wear what I like. And what I like is to look pleasant. Always.
But based on these photos of my dad, I think I might have gotten the "inspiration" from him. Particularly on wearing good-fitting jeans. And Ray-Bans, of course.
If only he's still alive up to this day, I'd take him out shopping every weekend.
Now here are some ideas on what to give your dad this Father's Day.


Bakit ang sarap maging Pilipino? Because we are friends with everyone! Take Marcus' case for example...
From the simple gesture of helping out a complete stranger by letting him use your phone to buying a person you've just met for the first time a drink, Filipinos, truly, are friendly.

How about you? Bakit ang sarap maging Pilipino? Sound off your answers online using #SarapMagingPilipino.

Happy Independence Day!

I must admit that for the past couple of months, I've been lazy. Lazy to practically do anything productive (such as updating this blog), lazy to dress up which is very unnatural of me, just plain lazy. I don't wanna blame the intense heat we've been grilling ourselves on lately (though science proves so: heat = laziness) 'coz... nah, I'm blaming the heat. Period. See? The heat is even making me lazy to think!
And then it rained. It's officially the start of the wet season! I'm happy. Excited, actually. I can't wait to pile on the layers of clothes I've amassed since the start of this year. Now, all I need is inspiration.
Good thing there's Ayala Mall's Style Origin to re-energize my style and inspire me to do what I do (I'd like to believe so) best. Ayala Malls in partnership with the Philippine Star and Starworld, and in collaboration with the country's top lifestyle magazines MEGA, Meg and Chalk empower men and women with inspiri…
