The 1 day of the year when JC and I cancel all our plans because we're ready to hunt and be total fan girls. Haha. It's also the time of the year where our designer brains make good points and we dream of how we can make things better for these guys. Advertising wise. Haha. It's all for fun and we're good with that.
We don't really join all the special events if we're not 100% passionate about the topic or speaker, and that's because we're not willing to spend a cent just to see someone famous. We're happy to roam around appreciating all the cosplayers and admiring all the fan art done by the concept artists. This year was good. I can't wait for next year!
We didn't stay for the entire Day 2 because there's really only so much you can do, but we did have fun at the Netflix booth. We particularly enjoyed all the good looking men walking around and talking to us... Hahaha - even if it's their job to do that... Hahahaha. We tried to take sneaky photos of them!
I didn't have a whole bunch of funds for this year, so I had to choose wisely. Haha. But i did find interesting stickers and prints that I reaally wanted! They were all at affordable prices and to be honest, I would have paid a bit more for them because I understand the passion and hard work that goes into creating these works. Respect to them and I really hope their artworks get noticed more! I particularly love love love the ones I purchased because of the style! They're clean and beautifully done! Good job, guys!
Because I'm not one of those people who crave to really "be one with nature", I have to say, this one was totally worth it because I've never done anything like it before.
My friend, Jordan, messaged me one day and said he was finally heading back to the Philippines. So, in the midst of our excitement, we decided to take a trip to Buscalan, Kalinga so he could get tattooed by Apo Whang Od. He arrived in Manila on January 23 and we were off to Kalinga on January 27. WE WERE PUMPED! We did our research. We planned. We were prepared. BUT YUP... we took the wrong route. We ended up being on the road for 18 hours. YES. EIGHTEEN (18). We left Manila at 9:00pm and arrived at Buscalan Proper at 3pm.
We took the Tabuk Route. When we could just have taken the Bontoc Route (this route would have been quicker, but most importantly, less scary!!!). I cannot even explain how terrified I was. Yes, the scenic views were much much better driving from Tabuk, but the aftermath of landslides and muddy roads were terrifying!
Despite the very long car trip and pretty much trusting Waze... we met new animal friends and saw nice sceneries. Haha.
When we reached Buscalan, we talked to the locals and luckily, we found a guide, even if we were super late. Our guide, Danny, told us to prepare for the hike and wow, we did NOT expect that hike. It wasn't horrible, but out of 10, i'd put it on 6. The steep steps plus mud were a challenge! It was slippery! However, when we reached the top, it was totally worth it because the place looked beautiful and the people were so friendly that you just want to give away all the hugs you could possibly give! hahaha!
The cold breeze, chattering of the people, and of course, the view made the long car trip + long hike totally worth it.
We had to wait the next day for Jordan to get inked because it was already late during the day. We were told that Whang Od was already tired. So, we settled in, rested for a bit, and started to socialize with the other people who were staying at the homestead. While smoking a cigarette on our home's balcony, I had a pleasant conversation with a housemate. He arrived a few hours before we did and this led to an Inuman inside the little hut right outside our homestead.
We all headed back inside by 10pm because we were told that curfew was at 10pm. Curfew meant, we could not be loud anymore... hahaha. Some still stayed, but I was crashing by 9:30pm. So, I headed inside and went to sleep.
Jordan finally got inked by Apo Whang Od the next morning and wow, it was definitely a great experience to watch her work. I didn't get a tattoo done because the purpose of going there was for Jordan to get his before he leaves for the States. I know I'm going to go back, so I'm willing to wait!
This was a good experience and I got to bond with my friend. I'm not the travelling type, nor am I a nature thrill seeker, so this was something different for me. I enjoyed it because I also learned to appreciate my roots so much more. I fell in love with the Philippines once again. It's nice to be reminded of how great life actually is and i believe it's experiences like this that make you see that.
I made a short video of my trip:
Every year, I take my babies (my nephews and nieces) trick or treating, but this year was special because I got to go around with my balikbayan godson, Kiko! My cousin's friends joined us too so there were more kids this year! I'm not complaining because the more they are, the more fun we have! Hahaha!
Yup, I'm getting older because running and walking around making sure the kids stick together and none of them gets lost is hardwork, but it's totally worth it. It's the one time of the year they can go totally nuts on the streets, candy, and imagination. It's also the one time of the year I get to be a big kid. Haha. Yup at 29 years old, I still have my pumpkin / bag saying trick or treat so i could get candy! Lucky enough, most of the neighbours know me... so they will always drop goodies in my bag! Hahahahaha!
For the ones that are close to me, they all know that I haven't had a "dude" in my life in the past 3 years. Yup, loveless and 100% single in Manila. Haha. I obviously started questioning (and doubting) myself. I started saying that no one will ever look my way or even be interested in spending time with me - well, that all changed. This entry will serve as a reflection and I guess, I want to be open about my thoughts. I'm keeping the identity of this dude private because I don't want anyone creeping on him. You know how the internet is.
On my first night in Paris, I walked around and had a beer, then i met this dude. We sat and talked for a bit. We did the basics of conversation... so what do you do? What do you like? What are your thoughts on this and that? Where are the interesting spots here? I told him about all the places I wanted to visit and he said to finish my drink cos he was going to show me something. This was when my whole night just turned around and before sleeping, I took a deep breathe, saying, "Am I dreaming?" HAHA. We started walking around and he was pointing to good restaurants around my area, then he surprised me by showing me the Paris Opera house. WHOA OK. LIKE... talk about AWESOME. Then we walked some more and and more... and more... then he told me to close my eyes and so I did. He took my hand and led me somewhere. When he said open your eyes, yup, I was standing right in front of the Louvre... at night... all lit up and beautiful. I couldn't contain my emotions at that point... I teared up and tried to hide it. Hahaha. What a weirdo. It was getting late (like 11pm i think) so we started to walk back to my place. He dropped me off and yup, he gave me the sweetest goodnight kiss. The second the front door closed... i was all, "WHAT IS HAPPENING? DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN?!" I was about to fall asleep when he texted, "Do you want to go on a date?" In my head, i read that in a french accent... HAHA. DUH I SAID YES!!!!
Fast track to the date, it was everything. Rock music, Electric Cars, Beer, Night walks, etc. etc. Like. WHAT. I was still questioning myself. Haha. This has got to be a dream right? I mean... who would have known the 'pessimistic towards dating' weirdo from Manila, who NO DUDE even gives a chance to, will get to experience the Romance of Paris? LIKE WHAT? No way. To be honest, kudos to him cos he totally nailed the kind of date I like. I mean come on... a live rock band in an irish bar? Plus a cute little electric car, driving around the my favorite city?! I stayed in Paris for 5 nights. I saw him 4/5 of those nights. We walked around, held hands, kissed at romantic spots, and talked like friends. On my last night, we obviously saw each other and said our goodbyes indirectly. You know what, i don't even remember saying Goodbye. Weird. Did I? Whatever, I don't remember. Haha. I guess a part of me didn't want to say goodbye.
Okay, so here's the pitch. I didn't expect any of this to happen. I really didn't. On that first night, I thought that was going to be the last time i'd see him. I thought the same for the 2nd and 3rd days. Okay, so i was totally wrong. For some weird reason, this dude wanted to hang out with me, even if he just met me. He knew I was leaving so my negative mind started to kick in. One, he knows i'm leaving so he's just taking advantage of the short time and having fun? Two, are men this romantic in Paris? Like is this their 'way of life'. Three, Why go through so much effort in seeing me for 2 hours and travel back home that's so far away? This is a little fishy. What does he want at the end of all this? I gave myself the whatever and let it all happen. Ms. Over-thinker had to shut up and just let herself enjoy the experience!!!
I got a glimpse of what could be. I'm not saying HIM in particular, but if I did have someone, what it would be like now. I'm a different person from 3 years ago and I am proud of becoming more mature, so this fling was different. It made me realize that holding hands is nice. Short and sweet kisses are perfect. Having someone to hug and hold when you had a bad experience is nice. There was this one night where I got hugged by a wet and drunk dude on the street who was telling me he loved me... I told him about it and in a heartbeat, he told me he would come to me instead of me walking to him. I mean, it's a small gesture but it means a lot, you know? Or like the fact that he took the time to come over so i could watch the Eiffel Tower's light show from my rooftop. Or like me paying for our drinks instead of him. I really got a glimpse of who I could be as a girlfriend to someone who cared and listened. Someone who will show interest in what I do or think. Someone who will share stories with me and make me laugh. I know our little fling was a vacation thing. I don't hope on anything, really, but I do appreciate and thank him for what he did. He doesn't know any of this and that's fine, haha, but yah, I'm grateful that I met him. I really am and that's why I miss him.
To all the lonely hearts out there, don't shut your heart. Don't ever believe that you're meant to be alone. Be patient because someone will come your way and see your worth. Yah, my experience was short, but it opened up my mind and heart to many possibilities. Do the same for yourself because you won't regret it. Of course, protect your heart, but don't be scared to feel SOMETHING amazing.
We all have special stories to tell. How I met these dudes definitely falls under the category of "friendship stories worth telling!"
It was back in July 2016 when I first grouped up with these guys on Overwatch. They were complete strangers to me except for JC, but during that time, he and I weren't close at all. Actually, we used to hate each other back in college. HAHA, but that's all in the past now! Anyways, so every night we would all group up and eventually, shared stories, facebooks, instagrams, and etc. We would tag each other on facebook and talk like best buds on our FB group chat. Inside jokes happened and teasing each other with crazy things - the list goes on and on! The level of comfort was already there. The trust was present. Today, it makes sense why we stayed friends despite just meeting on the "interwebz". Haha.
When we met up at Rue Bourbon, maaaan, it was like we were friends for a very very very long time! I found that cool and interesting because I was with a group of people who were just as geeky and crazy. The Overwatch jokes never stopped and I love that because if it was any other group of friends, no one would get why I was laughing so hard! It felt good to be around these guys and I know it's a unique kind of friendship. We're all geeks and nerds so, of course, the conversations never died. It really felt like we were just a bunch of friends who grew up together and so happen to play Overwatch. Hahaha.
I'm glad they're in my life. Hands down. I'm pretty sure we've all got an awesome bond going on and I wish it never goes away! Thanks, guys! I had so much fun!
I told myself I was not going to miss APCC this year! I saved up and allowed myself to go absolutely insane! No regrets. Haha. Of course it's not as big as other Comic Cons and I expected more people to cosplay, but then again, I didn't attend all 3 days. I had so much fun though! I had good company and lotsa things to look at. All the talented comic book artists in one place? All the vinyl toy sellers in one place? All the board games, shirts, jackets, and stickers in one place? It was geek paradise! Haha.
I met up with JC and the both of us were so eager to scout the place for hot geeks, sexy cosplayers, and our gorgeous / handsome friends. This was a [sort-of] milestone for us because our Overwatch Group met for the first time. Ijon had a booth with Playbook, so of course, we, together with Miggy and MJB hung out there for a bit to talk. The best part was it seemed like we've all hung out already (not just online). Everyone was who they were online and I adored that! These guys are wonderful. I feel blessed to have met them. We did clicked well together and that's what's important. When it was closing time, we even had dinner together and it was another round of geek talk which was AWESOME.
Thanks to all the people who talked to me about geeky things. Thanks to all the sellers who gave me good prices on everything I was looking for. Thank you to the Lego Peeps who continued to support my obsession! Thank you to LONG LIVE PLAY PH for allowing me to sit down at their booth!
Sabby & I met up at Century Mall so we could enjoy a night of Beer and food at Brewfest MNL Social, but when we got there, we saw that there was a 200php entrance fee! We thought it was a rip off so we headed to Hole in the Wall. We bumped into Toni who told us Lyssa and Lorraine were waiting at their table! We rushed over there and an exchange of smiles, hugs, and 'omg's were flying all over the place! Awesome! It was a night full of laughter and kwentos. Sabs and I ended up with people we haven't seen in so long - totally worth it! Haha.
This is the thing about high school. You leave there excited to explore the world and feel like a grown up, but you find yourself back to where it all began. Sitting in a table with these people, I realized that back then, we weren't best friends, but as time flies and you see them again, they become closer to you in ways that are hard to explain. The openness between everyone was exhilarating and of course, the topics were never ending. It really is awesome how like turns out this way. You end up being thankful for a lot of things because it's experiences like this that remind you what life is really all about. It's nice to sit in a table where you don't have to explain what you're really going through. They get it. It's lovely to be able to speak your mind and have people reply with genuine knowledge on the topic. It's nice to be loud and crazy with people that will be as loud and crazy as you are. This is the part of 'growing up' I was excited for back then.
Life will also be good with good company. It's the truth.
As the Staycation Weekend ends, I have to say this, I had a very hard time keeping up with the young bloods. Haha. While they were up and about, singing and talking away, until whatever time, I was sleeping soundly inside the bedroom. I had fun falling asleep to them singing Moffat songs though - with Mark on guitar and Raf digitally playing the drums through an iphone. Hahaha. I was honestly drumming with him inside my head.
Alright, so this was one hell of a fun weekend. I got to relax and not think about work for 2 days. I was able to be "young" and just enjoy the spontaneity of events. I didn't have the normal things that keep my attention like the internet, ps4, Lego, etc. and I honestly enjoyed it. All I had was the company of friends and a nice place to relax (with beer and coffee). I'd love to do this again.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CARLO! I hope you enjoyed your celebration and truly appreciate the people that love you (and who are going to love you). I'm glad to have a friend who I can be so open with and share many thoughts and stories with. I'm also glad we get along great and you're able to speak to me with truth and openness. I hope you have many more awesome brithdays to come and we stay friends no matter how far we are from each other.
I thought the heat in Manila was deadly. I was so wrong. The heat in Cebu was even more deadly! Haha. So, Naveen and I decided to book a trip to Cebu during the Easter holidays (Holy week). We planned to be spontaneous and go anywhere we pleased, but the heat wasn't our friend. We ended up just roaming around the surrounding areas (places close to the hotel). We also spent a ton of time watching tv and chilling in our hotel room... with the aircon on full blast. Besides, I was happy I got to just relax and not worry about a thing. I enjoyed just chilling with nothing on my mind because it's been so long since I went on a relaxing and lazy vacation. Usually, it's all about movement and going to all the awesome spots. This time around, it was to be completely lazy and shop at H&M. hahaha!
We visited the Basilica though and I have to say, I have never enjoyed a church so much. The architecture was breath-taking. All the wood work, paintings, and sculptures inside the church was amazing. There was also a street where all these graffiti were just out there for everyone to enjoy. I wanted to do a spontaneous photoshoot... haha.
I enjoyed this mini vacation because I really got to relax and just not worry or think about anything. I want more vacations like this. Haha.
What an awesome awesome Saturday! Thanks Allie for the yummy lunch and awesome celebration! Have many more awesome years ahead of you! Stay the kind and sweet person you've always been! Keep making people smile and laugh cos you're great it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY FRIEND!!! :D
By the way, Carlo and I had to take this massive U-Turn because he was thinking too hard while driving. To be fair, he was thinking of very profound things because we were talking about profound topics.... and how upset we are about Binay's rank in the presidential elections poll. Hahaha. Aaand we all played some Roulette and won 100 pesos back thanks to Carlo. Haha. :P
It's been years since a lot of us hung out together in one place! It was so good to see these guys and have it seem like we were never apart. Haha. There are more of us but a lot weren't able to go, but it was still awesome. From cute lil' kids to adults who now share cigarettes and drink beer. Haha. But seriously, who can say they're still friends with the same people they went to kinder with because their parents created the bond between everyone? Who can say their parents jived so well back then, that they planned out of town trips every year when we were kids (that's 10+ families by the way... haha)? Well, we can. That's pretty damn awesome.
Now that I think about it, it's pretty impressive what our parents were able to do. This all started when we were all attending a pre-school called ICBB back in 1991/92. According to my dear mother, there was this school play and a lot of us weren't part of it considering how small the school was. Our parents [apparently] invited the Principal out to some lunch and told her how disappointed they were that their kids weren't part of the play (plus other issues they had with the school). So, as a group / team, they pulled ALL of us out of ICBB and brought us to another pre-school (Ridgefield). This created a strong bond between all the parents and from then on, it was a MASSIVE group of families planning beach trips every summer. Haha. So, yah, we all literally grew up together. The parents are the god parents of whoever's kid. The kids became group mates throughout highschool. We're invited as a group to whatever event one person / family throws. It's pretty cool. We're a family. I'm sure of that. 25 years and going strong. Kudos to our families!
What an awesome way to end the year! The night before New Year's Eve, I went out with friends and made new friends! We all met up at our favorite hang out place, Rue Bourbon, at the Fort. We all got our favorite BIG ASS CARAMEL BEER. We laughed, talked about life, sang awesome songs, and drank the night away! I fell in love with a new bunch of people because of their spirit and story. I love having people with such positive energy! This really was a very fun and interesting night. I drank too much though. I woke up with body pains and a hang over. I have no idea why. Hahaha. It was totally worth.
Every December, the 4 of us are reunited and it becomes this really loud laughfest + catching up + food haven. Hahaha. Welcome home, Rox! It's good to have you back! It's like we're back in high school, but obviously slightly more mature... well, the topics are more mature... but the amount of food we eat plus how loud we become... nope, nothings changed. Haha.
It feels so good to have these kinds of friends. The kind wherein you know the bond is strong and no matter how long we don't see each other, it's all good. When I think about it, I'm damn lucky to have these girls in my life. When the whole world seems to be going against you, they have your back. They bring you back to reality and guide you into what's right, not what other people would do just to shut you up. They remind me of the true meaning of friendship. With that being said, whenever we're reunited during the holidays, they also remind me of the true meaning of Christmas. Thanks, guys.
I ended up in the 2nd room where I laughed my ass off because the people were a bunch of very funny, witty, and awesome dudes. Haha. What's new, Carms? Nothing. Haha. I met up with Carlo at the lobby of the hotel because we were both sure we wouldn't know anyone, but as the night progressed. We made friends and it became a genuine laughfest. Thanks for a great night, Josh! I had so much fun! I don't think I've enjoyed a party that much in so long! You know I love you, man. We clicked the first night we met because you're one of those dudes I would love to sit and talk with (which we do). Your maturity is always going to impress me so, please never change. The world needs more souls like you because you're the kind of person who will always be around to give the best conversations and advices. You still have a long long way to go, but in all honesty, you're doing just fine. You're on your way into being the the best of the best. Never ever ever change that heart, soul, and mind of yours, okay? It's what I love most about you. Happy Happy birthday, my friend! May all your wishes and dreams come true!
And I thought I was going to have an ordinary work day... Hahaha. If you're looking for a place to work peacefully with a quiet, homey, and natural setting, this place is going to be your 2nd home.
So, I had a meeting with two really awesome guys, Mike and Dom in this absolutely stunning workplace called The Office Project. The moment I entered, my jaw dropped because it was beautiful. The smile on my face wouldn't leave because the interior design was just.. WOW... All the detail really comes together and it makes you want to stay there for a very very long time. Haha. It's so welcoming and even with all the detail, it's not at all distracting. It's actually inspiring. The colors all blend well together so it doesn't interrupt your thinking process. The use of different materials and wall fixtures makes the place more homey and you feel relaxed. I was really blown away by this office space. I got to know the owner, Mike, and he shared with me some incredible detail of how this space came about and I must say, GOOD JOB GUYS! Awesome. Awesome. AWESOME.
Whenever I'm with these people, the anthem of my night becomes Ke$ha's TikTok. Haha. I do not like that song, but it perfectly describes the craziness and awesomeness that happens. Hahaha.
We met up again at Rue because that's our hobbit hole whenever we're all in town. We had our usual Big Ass Caramel Beers, but this time around, the waiter gave us shots... because Carms decided to tell Mr. Waiter a particular dude found him hot. Haha So, at first he got back at the dude by giving him a shot, then I became a victim because I couldn't stop laughing. Oh my. Hahaha. My happiness became my downfall. The conversations were still (and will always be) crazy open and weird. We were able to catch up with each other's lives and it was great! I find myself regretting decisions with these guys, but at the end of the day, I know I had an awesome awesome time. Haha. So, yeah, I guess I don't actually regret it... Haha. I miss these peeps and I'm happy we get to see each other despite the busy schedules. We raise our glasses to the fun we always have when we're together! Woot!
This all started with a facebook conversation. I sent the whole group a message and asked them if they wanted to go to Singapore with me. Mike was the only one who was game. Hahaha. One month later, Selfie Queen and I were on our way to Singapore.
Of course we wanted to be on a budget! We booked a hostel through Agoda and the pictures looked nice so why not! Yup... I don't know why I still haven't learned this lesson. It's not the first time this happened... hahahaha. The photos lied... The hostel was challenging!!! It wasn't a dump or anything... but yah, it was very very challenging. Having to climb down in the middle of the night just to use the toilet made me cry a little bit. Staying in a Mixed dormitory gave me the gateway to men's buttcracks, strong manly smells, and lots lots lots of snoring. If Mike wasn't with me, I'd be so scared to sleep! Hahaha. Other than my sad but funny experiences in the hostel, we had fun. It was a good and new story everyday. Something Mike and I laughed about all day and night. We went around Singapore and hit various spots. Nothing we both haven't seen before, but I taught Mike where to go to eat cheap food in case you accidentally leave your credit card at home. We roamed around streets and mall and well... laughed a lot. Hahaha.
This trip was fun. I would have considered it a more relaxing trip if I didn't have such a bad experience in the hostel, but it didn't stop me from living the moment. For Mike's last night, we hung out around our area at night with one of our bunk buddies, Wes, a 36 yr old Australian who helped us shut everyone up at night (cos we wanted to sleep haha), who eventually became my smoke buddy. Overall, it was hella fun! I wouldn't trade anything for it.
ONE WORD: AMAZING.
I was given the opportunity to be part of something amazing and I'm soooo grateful for all of it! I was able to meet and talk to so many awesome people who are passionately driven. I was able to learn and share ideas. I was able to listen to amazing talks given by people who believed in something and made it a reality. I was taught techniques in the web, tech, and design industry. I was able to experience my love and passion for this art with people who understand the dream. It was all so amazing! I also got to explore a city on my own. I discovered the culture and how people stay fit in Hong Kong... those uphill-downhill streets are crazy... hahaha. I survived with only a backpack. There's a lot to learn when you travel.
The best part of attending RISE was witnessing the passion every single person had about their business. Hearing them pitch their idea and how people were willing to collaborate. It was an eye-opening experience. This was the first time I attended a conference like this so the exposure was excellent!
It was the first time we hung out for two nights in a row because Michael usually stays for only 1 night Haha. We all took advantage of his two night stay, of course! Wuhooooo!
The 2nd night though.... What's the first rule of fight club? Hahahaha. We shall never speak of the things we said and did that night because it's soooo out of line for all of us. No, nothing dirty or illegal. We just solidified our closeness and the meaning of "crazy". Hahaha. And that's what I love about these people! We're all crazy, weird, loud, and daring. HAHA. We'll drink to our happiness! We'll talk like we're never apart. We'll laugh until our tummies hurt. We'll make fun of each other in loving ways! It's always fun and awesome with these people. Thanks guys for one of the best nights of 2015 (so far). More to come!
Yesterday, I took part in an awesome beach photoshoot with Speed Eyewear! We've been planning and preparing for this photoshoot for some time now so i'm suuuper happy it was successful!
We had to meet in makati super early in the morning. It was funny cos we packed sooo much food. We were joking how we're going to be staying at the beach for a week! It was a little new and weird going to Zambales cos none of us really knew each other well. It was quiet even if a lot of us were awake. I ended up in the van with the talents so you can imagine how weird I felt... It's not like i can stare at them and drool right? HAHA. I had to stay all professional and stuff and it was dark...so it's not like i could see any of them... hahaha. BUT as the day progressed, we all got to bond and talk to each other. By the end end of the shoot, we were friends and the selfie galore took over. Hahaha. It's also what happens when you're with two professional (AND SUPER AWESOME) photographers + models. Selfies happen. Cos you know... these people are all pretty and stuff.
But you know what, we're lucky cos these talents were down to earth and super nice. The photographers were easy going and it was so fun to work with them. They were able to grasp all the concepts and helping them out and stuff was so much fun. I was a happy girl because i was surrounded with all these creative people so the conversations were really interesting and open. I was able to approach and work with the models too cos they were fun and interesting. I was happy cos they were open to suggestions and stuff. They weren't snobbish and annoying so when it was chill time, i was able to bond with them and talk to them about things.
It was a good experience and IT WAS SUUUPER FUN! I can't wait to work with these guys again, especially the photographers. They are so talented. I'm excited to start working on all the collateral!!!
Congratulations to all of us for a very successful photoshoot! We all did an awesome job and I wish everyone more success!
SHOUT OUT TO DIREK LAMBERT PANGILINAN and MARK CRISTINO for their awesome awesome photography skills. Without them, this shoot wouldn't look awesome. HIRE THEM. I promise you, they're going to rock your world.
ANOTHER SHOUT OUT TO WIL, DOMINIC, GARRETT, SHINE, GOLDIE, and SANDRA. Your sexy faces and beautiful bods made this photoshoot radical! WUHOO!
