Surplus takes fashion for less to the next level with its newly-renovated store at SM Megamall with a new look and modern feel, giving it a brand new identity.

As part of their digital campaign, they launched two of their new celebrity ambassadors: VJ, actor, dancer, and host Robi Domingo and actress and host Alex Gonzaga. Teen talents Sue Ramirez and Ryan Boyce are also part of the new faces to represent the brand. These ambassadors represent the store's young, fresh, and hip vibe.

When asked about her personal style, Alex says it's very laid-back and classy; polo, pants, leggings, and denim are her favorites. She recommends the brand to everyone, especially teenagers because of the budget-friendly fashion items available in the store that range from different styles.

Meanwhile, 2011's top online favorite Candy Cutie Robi describes his style as simple and sleek—he wears lots of black, gray, and white shirts. For him, what separates the brand from other stores is the great finds that he can wear on a daily basis, especially since he's a guy who likes hoodies and shirts. The thing he loves most about the brand? The fact that you can find everything at affordable prices to the point that you'll go on a shopping spree!

Have you ever wondered what Robi is looking for in a girl when it comes to her style? Here's his straightforward answer: "I like it when girls wear something simple. I don't want girls to overdress because by overdressing, I know that they're trying to conceal their personality. I want girls to be simple and natural. Mas nakikita ko 'yung kagandahan sa personality ng tao." (So Candy Girls, now you know how to capture this cutie's attention with your style!)

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
