I don’t know if I ever told you the story how I met Simone Legno of Tokidoki but I did, 6 years ago to be exact, at Graphika Manila. I’m still a huge fan of Simone and Tokidoki so imagine my surprise when Macy told me that he’d be here again!  :x

Even more surreal was how I was able to collaborate with him at the LeSportsac event. He drew Unicorno for me and I painted the colors and stars. Check out my work of “art” below. :) Haha kidding, but I’m calling it stephiewon x tokidoki.

It was a super fun experience and I’m really thankful (#blessed?) for this opportunity. <3 Way to end 2014, right?


P.S. Make sure to check out Simone’s new collection with LeSportsac, available at all LeSportsac stores.

Mad for Mad Fest

So this is happening: Kimbra, one of my favorite artists in the world, is finally coming to our tiny little archipelago as the headliner for JACK TV’S MAD Fest this December 5. It’s one of the most exciting things to happen in my life as a young adult (because being 24 years old and a member of the workforce, I no longer have to negotiate for a later curfew—woohoo!) and in a nutshell, this gif roughly sums up how I currently feel—in which I am The Doctor and everyone around me is Rory.

When I’m obsessed with something (or in this case, someone), I consider it my civic duty to bring everybody to a similar level of obsession. Here are three very, very good reasons why you should go to this year’s MAD Fest:

1. Kimbra, Kimbra, Kimbra!! Remember a few years ago, all we heard on the radio was “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye? Kimbra lent her vocals to the track and won Record of the Year, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the Grammys for her efforts. She’s got two amazing solo albums out (Vows, which came out in 2011, and The Golden Echo, which came out last August) but honestly, after watching her live performances on YouTube, I can’t help but think that the studio versions pale in comparison. She’s just got so much joy and energy about her and it really shows. I’ve compiled a few of my favorite lives for you!

2. Local Acts!! We featured DJ duo Deuce Manila, and indie-rock band Cheats in our July special “Radio Active” as acts to keep an eye on—which you’ll be able to do at MAD Fest because they’re also performing! I’m also looking forward to BP Valenzuela, whose Soundcloud I like to stalk now and then.

3. Live art!! When I was still studying in Ateneo, Manila-based artist Leeroy New made this enormous installation by our library that looked like a big red higad. I’m still fascinated by it even now and I’m looking forward to what he and a lot of other artists are coming up with for the festival.

Will I be seeing you at MAD Fest? Come say hi! :)


Burger Time

Last Monday, Ayessa, Erin, and I got to try the limited edition Chef’s Choice Smokehouse Burger from Caliburger. crafted by one of the country’s well-known chefs, Chef Rob Pengson.



It’s basically a bacon cheeseburger with crispy onion rings, tomatoes, pickles, and a maple-mustard BBQ sauce. The beef patty was super moist and flavorful—it was super duper yummy! We loved it so much that we’re definitely going back for more. But it’s only on a limited run from November 17 (today!) to December 17 so I suggest you rush to Caliburger to try this amazing concoction. You won’t be sorry, I promise!

Caliburger is located at 4F Century City Mall, Kalayaan Ave, Makati.

My Brother Is Getting Married!

My brother was my very first friend ever. Not like I had a choice (neither did he), but we were stuck with each other until my second brother came into this world. That meant doing absolutely everything together!

Growing up, I had an instant ally and an enemy. A protector and a heckler. A cheerleader and a critic. We weren’t the best of friends all the time, but whatever squabble we had was always soon forgotten and we’d be back to being buddies.

Today, he’s getting married and I couldn’t be happier. I’ll be crying for sure—tears of joy!—and I’ll be laughing. True to the kind of relationship we have. And in the end, we’ll have a good laugh and make silly faces just like in the photo. (:

Hey, Candy Girls!

I just got back from a three-week trip to the USA. I missed you guys and wanted to check in with you all to say hi! :)

I’m probably still too jetlagged to string two coherent sentences together, so I’ll just be sharing a few of my favorite snaps from my trip. Obviously, I’m still on a high!

This girl loves her chocolates!

Giant, thousand-year old trees at the Redwoods State Park

Beautiful hiking trails at Saratoga Gap in Santa Clara County

We visited Santa Rosa, hometown of Snoopy’s creator, Charles Schulz.

We marveled at the breathtaking scenery at the Grand Canyon.

Loving the lights and sounds of Vegas!

Natural red-orange rocks at the Valley of Fire in Nevada

Goofing around with my cousin Mariel at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Will be posting more pics soon! In the meantime, check out more of my snaps at
