A Year of Scribbling My Life with Black and White

Four years ago, I made a blog about literature and photography as a requirement to my Humanities subject: sipocotasinsipulangangui.wordpress.com which name was derived from my two home towns (yes I have two) Sipocot, Cam. Sur and Polangui, Albay.

I posted several essays and poems and pictures and after the semester I left it out.

It’s time to go head over heels for DIVA’s How Do I Look? Asia – the highly anticipated Asian re-imagination of the hit fashion makeover series. Billed as “Asia’s ultimate fashion fix,” How Do I Look?

The NBCUniversal International format, produced by NBCUniversal’s Matchbox Asia, follows Malaysian celebrity and style icon Sazzy Falak as she guides eight fashion victims to the path of fashion enlightenment.

One of Naga’s Supermom

We first met in a blogging event and she was quiet busy with her IPad, tech-y I guess; she was outgoing, fun, friendly, and outspoken.

A petite woman who loves to wear shorts (who would??? if you have legs like hers its a dream come true) named (or aka) Sam Brown.

Well she’s happily married, has three wonderful daughters and is famous in her field. She’s the friendliest of the friendliest I know having tons of friends who she loves and loves her dearly.  She is a certified multi-tasker and let me tell you how and why. I did a little research and a crash interview at  around 12 midnight using the facebook  chatbox and we exchange messages at around 1:00 A.M. Well we’re owls so it’s ok.

First. She is an Event Specialist.

Yes, she’s behind on some successful events in the metro and at some other places too.  But it’s not about the money she said for sometimes she have turned down some, even it costs a lot; she chooses her clients very well for she works with all her heart and soul.
