“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind." 

As the year comes to a conclusion, we look back at the different photographs that narrate experiences and memories we treasure. It's been my tradition to do this every time a year is about to end. Take a trip down my memory lane.

I end this by saying thanks to everyone who has touched me this year 
especially to that one person who has made such a big difference in my life. 
"I've had the time of my life. 
And I've never felt this way before. 
And I swear this is true. 
And I owe it all to you." 
(The Time by Black Eyed Peas)

Cheers to all the memories made in 2010.
Cheers to a new beginning.
And as Katy Perry would say it, 
no regrets, just love, don't ever look back.
Carpe diem.

Young And Restless.

After the Adidas Neo Bash, I went to my best friend Lorenz Namalata's party up north. This was one party I couldn't afford to miss as our brother celebrated his birthday. 'Twas nice to see all our high school friends again especially our barkada Anvaya and FF. Rarely do we see each other now and I just treasure the time that I had with them last Saturday night. As the clock ticked, the alcohol started to take its effect on the crowd and things got crazy. Indeed we celebrated being young and restless. 
Once again, happy birthday Lorenz!
John's Fifth Code blazer was nothing but chic!

Unfortunately, Nico wasn't included in the photo and Ian, Migi and Joseph were MIA.
The birthday boy all grown up! Cheers to four years! Happy birthday Lorenz.

It's An Adidas Thing.

And they definitely brought something up their sleeves. Held last December 10, 2010 at Nuvo City was Adidas Neo Bash. Teens from different schools gathered as we witness the launching of the Adidas Neo - their newest label that offers youthful and chic products for the sporty yet stylish teens out there. You can check the Adidas Neo Label stores at Market! Market! and Robinsons Galleria. 
The Neo Label products were displayed in the lockers.
The very prominent Tricia Gosingtian was one of the many teens who were awarded that night.
Fashion designer and FaDAL member Ziggy Savella - also one of the few who were awarded that night.
Unfortunately, I had to leave early because of time constraints. Thanks for the invite.

A Lunch With Preview.

'Twas a lunch like no other. Held last December 9, 2010 at Cav Wine Shop and Cafe was Preview Magazine's augmented reality presscon. The bloggers were present as Preview Magazine introduced the newest technical innovation on its December issue—Augmented Reality. This is the first in the Philippines and seeing them do a demo of the augmented reality was really fascinating. The Preview team also talked about their upcoming plans and Preview Mobile that aims to bring the readers closer to the people behind the magazine. We were also very privileged to have a talk with editor-in-chief Pauline Juan, creative director Vince Uy, contributing editor Agoo Bengzon, and society editor Raymond Gutierrez. And, of course, the presscon would have not been complete without their lovely cover girl, Solenn Heussaff. I was also very pleased to have a chat with my fellow bloggers during the event. It was definitely an afternoon that I'll never forget.
