Scorpion Nights, the sequel!

In the Melrose group, there are 4 of us celebrating our birthdays in November, and just a few days apart. For example, LG is November 4, I'm November 6, Rommel is November 8, and so forth.

That's why we make it a point to get together for our version of Scorpion Nights. And that's what we did tonight.


I must say, Scorpions are really a fun bunch!

FMM: For the Butter

Since we're on the subject anyway...

Friday Magic Madness presents "The Foundations" and their super duper hit song in the 60s, "Build me up."



This song is making me crave for another Butterfinger Cup!

Build me up...

Butterfinger Cups!



I spotted this product at 7-11 and had to give it a try. After all, it brings together 2 of my favorites - Butterfinger and Reese's Cups.

Gosh! Why didn't I discover you earlier.

Something fishy!


Of course, you can't leave Cebu without passing by Taboan Market.

Amazing how this place never changed after many, many decades.

Fiesta in Cebu!

Back in Adformatix, (and back in the mid-90s), one of the first work trips I took was in Cebu for a radio launch. There were 3 of us who went there - me, Fiesta and Erwin. And I remember that it was such a fun trip!

Now, about 2 decades after that, Fiesta and I are back in Cebu!


Funny thing is that this was an unplanned meeting. It just so happened that I was in Cebu for a shoot, and Fiesta was there for research. What an awesome coincidence!

All we need now is Kuya Ers!

Bursting with goodness!

When in Cebu, eat as the locals do!

And one of my favorite homegrown Cebuano restaurants?


Sunburst chicken, of course!


Hands down, this is one of the best chicken dishes I've tasted.

Scorpion Nights!


Coincidentally, 3 of us Creative Directors are all Scorpios! That's why we had a triple celebration last Friday night which was filled with food, drinks, and a lot of jokes. As well as a showcase of talents, including cheese ball basketball and corny joke sharing.

I guess talent runs in the zodiac sign, too.

The A- Team!

It was awesome that I was able to have a belated birthday celebration with one of my thesis groups from last semester.


The "Tsuper Lakas" team was all accounted for, and it was a lunch filled with reminiscing about the past and planning for the future.

Just like how they did an excellent job in their thesis (A- baby!)  I'm sure they'll also do an excellent job in their professional careers.

Here's to our next "tsuper" get together!

FMM: Dressing down

Out of the blue, without warning, this song started to play in the creative department:


It was one of Roxette's biggest hits - Dressed for Success!

Well, it's a Friday today, so why not?

Bite me!

The packaging design we did for Egg Bites is finally out!


It's so purrrty!
