Puma Presents: Drip x 3

drip

Drip has become one of my favorite local acts in Manila because of their distinct electronica sound and the soothing voice of Beng. It’s exciting to know that the band will be launching 3 music videos for their songs “Turning Grey”, “Blind” and “Bloodletting”. All of these 3 videos took 2 years in the making so I am quite excited to finally see those songs as music videos. Another good news is that they will be performing some of their new songs from their Spanish album which they collaborated with Instituto Cervantes as a tribute to a Spanish poet Miguel Hernandez. The event is free so anybody can come and join us. By the way, this event is sponsored by Puma. Continue reading “Puma Presents: Drip x 3”

Days before 2009 year ended, I was fortunate to have spent it with my different sets of friends. First is the wedding of my blogger friends, Jay De Jesus and Aileen Apollo-De Jesus last 26th December. This is the official merging of Google Philippines and Titikpilipino.com. πŸ˜€ (not in the business sense, ok? hehe). Congratulations to the both of you and may you have beautiful children! Although your bridal car did not arrive on your wedding day, what’s important is that you were able to say your “I do’s”. Sue them afterwards so that they’ll have a dose of their bitter medicine. πŸ˜‰ Continue reading “Before 2009 Ended, Friends (Re)United and Wincy is the New Mong”
