6 Things You Missed at the Coke Studio PH Launch
Coke Studio PH is a new TV program by Coca Cola Philippines in partnership with TV 5 that features our fave local musicians. It will be shown every Saturday at 7 pm. Last weekend, July 29, Coke Studio PH held its launch last weekend at the SMX Convention Center at the Mall of Asia. The night was filled with music, prizes, lighthearted fun, and dancing along to the artists singing their hearts out onstage. Here are a few things you missed at Coke Studio PH's launch.
- The fun photo-booth for pictures to help you remember the night.
One of the busiest attractions of the night was the photo booth, wherein you could take photos of yourself, or where your barkada could take fun, wacky shots of you all squished in together. There were cute filters to choose from, and the pictures were printed in cute Coke-themed frames that fit perfectly with the night's jolly red theme.
- A machine that lets you customize your own Coke can.
Coke definitely pulled off some amazing interior design at its launch. There were colorful bean bags scattered all around the floor for people to chill and snack off yummy goodies. There were also cool attractions such as the "customize your own Coke machine," which allowed the guests to print their names on a Coke can.
- The huge bus for Coke's collaborators and artists to chill in.
One of the most IG-worthy parts of the event was the huge bus that was parked on the side of the convention center. A large LED screen was plastered on its side, displaying the artists performing on stage as they sang so that everyone would be able to have a clear view of their idols. Inside the bus sat correspondents from TV 5, televising the event for their channel, as well as the artists getting ready to perform.
- Closed-door videoke machines that let you sing your heart out.
Aside from the customizable Coke machine, the event also included a "videoke machine" wherein people can sing their hearts out to popular OPM music. This attraction is made for one person at a time and it looks similar to a telephone booth.
- The artists that partied on throughout the night.
The event was jam-packed with amazing and energetic performances from well-known OPM stars like Gracenote, Autotelic, Reese Lansangan, Ebe Dancel, Abra, Franco, and Moonstar 88. Though each set of performers were only able to play a couple of songs, they managed to perform each one with great passion and stage presence, making sure that the audience was either swaying along with their slow jam or pumping their fists up to the beat.
- The fun and comfy props Coke brought in to make the room pop.
The event turned out to be a huge success, almost filling up the entire convention center! The positive turnout definitely means that we'll be seeing more of Coke Studio PH in the future, and we're especially excited for the different projects and collaborations they have planned for us!

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
