executive decision

I was a very confident 22-year-old. I went to an international high school and graduated top ten percent of my class, with honors and an international baccalaureate diploma. I also got a spot at a highly coveted American university where I double majored in Biology and Math. I came home to the Philippines because I wanted to give back to my country and at that time, I thought I was so cool. My confidence was sky high. I thought I would succeed in anything I chose to do and I also thought anything I touched would turn into gold. Together with some friends, we conceived a product that we felt would be revolutionary, an LGBTQ magazine for the Filipino. It was glossy, had beautifully written narratives, and high-quality photographs. Like any…

normal next to

For the past few months, we have grappled, wrestled, and struggled with the concept of what normal has become for all of us. While many continue to look at once was, hopelessly wishing things would just go back to how we understood it to be, the rest have been working on carving out the path we all would move forward in, redefining what it is to live with this aggressive shift in our histories hovering over us for the rest of life itself. Everything has been shaken up, undone, and turned on its head, and now we are making better choices—whatever, wherever it may be.

1 LANEIGE A wise man once said: “Moisture is the essence of wetness. And wetness is the essence of beauty.” If anyone understands this more it has to be the skin, and well, Derek Zoolander. All cult-favorite film references aside, the skin goes through much on the daily, which is why it is imperative to hydrate and nourish it at any given opportunity. Anchored on the pursuit of water science to maintain optimal moisture levels, Laneige quenches parched skin with a cool, tall, and most refreshing glass of water in the Water Bank Hydro Essence. A lightweight and highly-concentrated formulation, the best-selling innovation is crafted with green mineral water and infused with vitamin-rich kale, watercress, and beet to deliver intense clarity and hydration minus the sticky feeling typically akin to emollients…

feed your focus

“I am disciplined. I am focused. I am healthy.” Confidently written in a journal entry one Thursday morning last March, these self-affirmations were much-needed pick-me-ups for a then troubled Ben Wintle. And why wouldn’t he need all the positive reinforcement he can muster during that time–his wife, Iza, was about to be admitted into a hospital; his phone was buzzing with messages of concern from friends and family; his company, Booky, was carefully navigating around the shifting food and beverage industry. But amid the emerging trials and tribulations from all aspects of his life, Ben manages to achieve a state of mental clarity all throughout. Honestly speaking, it’s rather surprising for a man like Ben to be able to keep a headspace free from the constant internal oohs and ahhs. Being…
