The end of an era.

My StarWars-uber-fan-boy-hubby and I saw the special advanced screening of Return of the Sith last night and *sigh* I couldn’t help tearing when the credits started scrolling. Not only does the movie mark Anakin’s coming-of-rage, it also put an end to the saga my generation grew up with. Our good pal Carlo captures the emotion best:
Today is the day I shall finally see the end of a 33 year old saga. There will be no more Star Wars movies to look forward to after this. What do I do the day after Star Wars ends? Grow up?

I guess for those of us who don’t want to, there’s still this and this to look forward to.

Alma Matters

Ooh, it seems that a new UP song is in order, set to music by no less than Ryan Cayabyab himself.
(via my UPIS ’88 egroup)

Arn and I have had the privilege of working with Mr. C for some of his albums and we, just like every other person in our generation I guess, hold him in high regard not just for his talent but also for his kind-heartedness. It makes me proud that he is as true-maroon as I am, having studied in our State U all my life.

Work on the magazine (and other side projects) are keeping me away from the net but I hope to be able to fill up this space with interesting stuff soon. In the meantime, you can always check on us via the phlog.

A week’s worth of words.

Top 7 excuses reasons I wasn’t able to blog at all last week.
1. Attended Marco‘s KIA Creators Meet and Greet and caught up with old friends Vinnie, Cams, Dean, Nikki, Elbert, and Gerry. That was a lot of fun, Dimaans, launch a book more often hehe!


2. Went to Kamuning tela-heaven to buy props for our upcoming shoots. Fabulous finds include white sequinned-fabric for P180/yard, furry cloth in silver for P300/yard each, and somekinduva lace material for P350/yard.


3. Worked on photographer Adelina Leung’s beta site.


4. Uploaded pics of Tippi’s 2005 Pret-a-Party Collection that was launched at Fashion Week.


5. Traversed the metro with the WE team to art direct a fashion shoot.

6. Took a break in Brookside to spend time with Arn’s parents and siblings.

7. Helped Arn entertain our houseguest-for-the-day Sam.

To be honest, the week’s silence was also out of respect for the passing of Karol Joseph Wojtyla. May his soul have a safe journey. ?¢‚Ǩ?°?É‚Äû?ɬ??¢ÀÜ?°?É‚Äò?¢‚Ǩ?°?É‚Äû?¢‚Ǩ¬†

By the way, I was hanging out at Marbee’s desk the other day when sir Oliver stopped by and showed me this online society column, goodness gracious! I heard from another friend that we also made it to KLM’s inflight magazine, how bizarre.

Prepare Ye The Way

Happy Easter (:

And what Lenten season is complete without Godspell playing in the background? On loop? I’ve had the soundtrack for ages, but it was only last year (at the big Astroplus-Podium sale to be exact) when we acquired the DVD. Highly recommended for the soul.

*Oh, Seasons 1, 2, and 3 of Seinfeld were also on rotation in our dvd player. Highly recommended for the overworked! hehe

***
Album cover purses and coasters, keyboard jewelry, Harlequin Romance cover switchplates, a James Bond wallet — these are just some of the fun stuff you can find at Not Without My Handbag. My picks?


*You better love somebody, it’s late.


*Looky, our very own Pilita. Yes it’s really her!

And speaking of pop culture, Fudge mag’s latest issue is already out.

The SHE issue has a feature on “10 Women of Substance” and lo and behold, the powers-that-be at Fudge deemed me worthy of a spot *blush*. Astrud Crisologo, Mari Carandang, and Sari and Kiri Dalena are just a handful of the inspiring women I get to associate myself with. Many, many thanks to Annie Alejo and Anna Gan, hope you gals are reading this.

In the same issue: a write-up on Cecile Zamora* and Mich Dulce’s Store for All Seasons. Yodel, one of the co-owners, told me all about SFAS before it opened a year ago but Arn and I haven’t found ourselves in that neck of woods yet.

We also spied a cameo appearance of Mr. Komikero himself, Gerry A, in Gusgus’ San Pablo adventure. Watch out for his new comic, to be serialized in Fudge starting next issue.

*I frequented Grocery when it was still at Pilar St. (That’s where I got my stash of retro t-shirts back in my retro t-shirt phase). It also helped that a friend, Jenny‘s Kelvin lived right next door and would alert me everytime they held a sale. (:
