Man life isn’t easy when you’re on your own. Although there’s a discipline to be taught, when times get tough, they really get tough. Let me put it this way; it’s now the second year where I’ve been living alone here in Manila, getting by on my own terms. It’s been a tough run really experiencing first hand what it’s like to be deserted from all your friends and family and just doing my own thing and finding my own way. Although I’ve never really made a big deal about it in my life, I keep it to myself knowing that one-day people will want to hear my full story. I’ve got a long way to go and this is just the start of it all.

The vision is set and ready to unfold; all I have to do now is stay consistent and most importantly, stay focused. When you’re 22 living on your own, it’s very easy to end up going down the wrong path. Mummy isn’t there to clean up your mess. Even though that was the best thing about growing up as a kid – eventually, yeah we have to let go and learn from our own experiences. You can never say that your life’s in order, because there’s always something new to learn, or something old to fix. You just have to keep yourself grounded and accept the new challenges waiting to happen.

I always enjoy mixing up navy blue with white; to me navy blue is the equivalent of black. The colors are every effective and nothing too serious. Blue and white are usually colors that don’t cry for attention but somehow, when you put the two together, they effortlessly become an appealing ensemble.
