Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer

I bet everyone is celebrating now that the Philippines just won its 4th Miss Universe crown, care of Catriona Gray. I’m not a hardcore pageants fan but when it comes to the Miss Universe, I would support whoever the Philippines’ bet is.

To be honest, I have not followed … Continue reading Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer

Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!

I can’t contain it. I just really love this girl, Ariana! As an older millennial (okay I admit it), I grew up listening to bubble pop, mellow, boyband and girlband pop, grunge, soul, and r&b. That’s farfetched from all the EDM tunes and even the synth-pop, electronic/soul haze, and folk-pop music that are currently dominating pop music. This trend makes me deviate from what usual … Continue reading Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!

Unique’s Grandma, a quintessence of an old soul

The lost boy, the musical genius, the hypothalamus, the too-old-for-his-age millennial/baby Z, the Paquito look-alike–these are only some words that people associate the former IV of Spades frontman with. Many fans still wish that he would be the Prodigal Son of IVOS. Now, he’s all over the internet, with countless memes made to ridicule or flatter him.
