Are you gonna stay the night?

All it takes is one night to remind you of all of the things that you miss in life, to show you the kind of person that you once were - the kind of person that you wish you could be again.


Last night, I felt things - things I thought I wouldn't be able to feel again. I felt like I was taken back through time to re-experience a life I used to have and boy, did it feel good.

See, I used to be a party girl. I used to go to music festivals and drink alcohol like my life depended on it. I know that kind of lifestyle isn't fun for everyone - and to each their own - but I used to have a hell lot of fun in those days. All of that changed due to unfortunate circumstances.


Last night, though, as the magic of Zedd and his throwback songs flooded through my veins like a drug, I felt like I became that person again.

As songs like Clarity and Stay the Night pumped through the speakers, I recalled all of those feelings that I felt in 2014 and 2015 - all of those feelings of longing and passion and the inexplicable need for closeness. Little did I know that as the night progressed, those feelings would progress with it.

It all feels pretty surreal, really - like it didn't happen to me, but to somebody else. Like I didn't touch that skin or kiss those lips. Like it was all just a hazy dream masked in a heavenly scent of perfume and the familiar taste of a childhood treat.

And yet as surreal as it feels, I know it was all real coz I miss every moment of it. I miss every toss and turn, every giggle, every awkward question, and every sideward glance.


With my head throbbing and my eardrums bursting, I spent the beginning of my day just thinking about it and reliving it, all the while knowing and realizing that in a few hours, I'd be heading to a meeting for work here in the real world. (Yes, on a Saturday.) That all of those moments were but a blurry glimpse and that this so-called maturity and contentment are what's real in the world.


This is who I am now - a little older, thinner, healthier, and less of a rage monster than ever. That's supposed to be a good thing, right? Then why do I feel so empty all of a sudden? Ah, the power of Zedd…


(Massive thanks to Ovation Productions for having us at Road to Ultra last night! Thank you for the feels! :p)

New Balance and Stance Debut Stunning Shoes for Day and Night

After collaborating for a year, New Balance and Stance are now debuting the “ALL DAY ALL NIGHT” 247, which is paired with coordinating Stance athletic tab socks.

Inspired by the busy lifestyle of people today, the Stance x New Balance 247 pack represents the intersection where sport and life meets. It offers two styles - one for day and one for night - designed with versatility of wear and time-appropriate activities in mind. 


The white Stance x New Balance “ALL DAY ALL NIGHT” 247 has an engineered knit, making it more breathable and giving it a sportier daytime design.


It also has a sunrise gradient print on the bootie collar, which I love, and reflective details all around. It also has an “ALL DAY” graphic underneath the translucent outsole and a Stance branded lace keeper.


The black Stance x New Balance “ALL DAY ALL NIGHT” 247, on the other hand, is inspired by nighttime and offers a luxe black leather to suit its inspiration.


It also has a suede upper with night sky color hits on the bootie collar, which looks absolutely stunning. It also has an “ALL NIGHT” graphic underneath the translucent outsole and a Stance branded lace keeper.

The “ALL DAY ALL NIGHT” pack will be available by August 19 for Php7,995 at Sneakpeek stores in Alabang Town Center and Shangri-La Plaza; in Sole Academy stores in Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street and UP Town Center; and The Athlete’s Foot in Powerplant Mall.

Tyler Hoechlin of 'Teen Wolf' and 'Supergirl', and 'Ray Fisher' of 'Justice League' are Coming to Manila!

Here we gooooo!!! AsiaPop Comic Con 2017 is almost here and I can hardly breathe!!! I look forward to AsiaPop Comic Con every year - and for good reason. They make my dreams of meeting the best and hottest celebrities out there come true.

Last year, I was able to meet Nicholas Hoult (and even have a mini duet with him!!!), whom I have loved since my early college days ('Skins', anyone?); Joe Dempsie, who is currently in 'Game of Thrones, but whom I have also been a fan of since 'Skins'; and Millie Bobby Brown, fresh from her 'Stranger Things' gig!

This year, the grapevine is rife with rumours that one of my FAVORITE actors in the whole wide world is coming (won't name him, so I don't jinx it); but for now, here are the celebrities that have already been confirmed for the huge geeky event:

TYLER HOECHLIN

AKA Derek Hale in 'Teen Wolf' and Superman in 'Supergirl'


Sharpen your fangs or get out your capes for Tyler Hoechlin will be coming to AsiaPop Comic Con 2017.

Tyler plays tragic werewolf Derek Hale in the MTV series 'Teen Wolf', though I personally know him better as Superman in the CW series 'Supergirl'. I'll definitely be watching as many 'Teen Wolf' episodes as I can before he gets here, though, to amp up the hype!


Tyler will next be seen in the series 'Departures', as well as in the movie 'Fifty Shades Freed', the third instalment in the bestselling 'Fifty Shades' series. (I haven't read it… does he lose his clothes in it? FILL ME IN, PLEASE!!! :p)

RAY FISHER

Aka Cyborg in 'Justice League'

My blog name should give away how excited I am for a DC superstar to come our way! And while we have yet to see Cyborg in a full-blown movie, my hopes are high that 'Justice League' (slated to show in cinemas November this year) will ROCK!!!


Warner Bros. says they will also be releasing a solo Cyborg film in 2020, where Ray will reprise his role as Cyborg. This will be Ray's big screen debut, though he has appeared in TV dramas and in off-way Broadway productions in the past.

Who's excited? APCC Manila 2017 tickets are now available at smtickets.com and at all SM Tickets outlets with ticket prices at Php600 for a 1-day pass, Php900 for a 2-day pass, and Php1,100 for a 3-day pass. Kids aged 5 years old and below can attend the event for free.

You may also avail of a limited edition Collector's Pack at Php3,500, which includes a 1/12 Scale Iron Man 'Shotgun' Collectible Figure, a 3-Day Pass, a Special Edition Captain America Comic Book and an APCC 2016 Tote Bag.


See you there? :D
