Birthday Prints

It’s been a long time since the last time I blogged because I became really busy in the past few months. But, I’m back! Probably, this would be my 2nd to the last post in this blog before 2013 ends.

I had my birthday celebration yesterday with my family and this was my outfit:

Blog1I decided to wear this laidback outfit. Well, that’s basically my style. I didn’t put so much accessories because I’m already wearing a full-printed shirt.

Blog2Wore this cream-colored shoes. I don’t why but it’s one of my favorite colors. I feel like it fits with any color combination. I got it from Sebago and it’s really comfortable to my feet.

Pink and Blue

This is what I wore during Magna Joy’s debut last September 28, 2013. You can view the photos I took here.

Blog1I think pink and blue is a good combination. I also considered one basic rule of fashion when it comes to belts and shoes: The color of your belt should be same with the color of your shoes. Blog5

Blog2 I also used minimal accessories to complete my clean semi-formal look for the said event. Blog3I used a brown belt, bracelets and shoes because I think color brown fits with most of the colors. BlogLight Pink Polo Shirt from Wharton. Jeans from Oxygen. Shoes from Kickers. Watch from Oxygen. Bracelets from a thrift shop. Click on the photo above to hype it on lookbook.nu.

Sosyal Social: Using Social Media to Address Social Concerns

One of my classes last term was Special Topics and our final project was to plan and implement an event. After weeks of planning, our group came up with a seminar entitled “Sosyal Social: Using Social Media to Address Social Issues.” It happened last August 30, 2013 at De La Salle University-Science and Technology Complex Milagros R. Del Rosario Auditorium. We invited Ms. Mae “Juana Change” Paner as our guest speaker for the said seminar.

1

Just a little background, Ms. Mae “Juana Change” Paner can be easily known in the Boysen TV Commercial before where she was the fat woman being painted.  The name “Juana Change” was used as a pun for “wanna change” or “wala ng change”.  This character is mainly for the establishment of change in the Philippine government and to encourage Filipinos to build up their consciousness when it comes to the subject of politics. Juana Change is a project which sharply satires the Philippine government. She advocates justice, good governance and freedom through spoofs and aims to achieve change for the betterment of the society. Juana Change is portrayed in different personas including a fortune-telling Sto. Niño, a government fixer who is in great fear of God and an OFW on a plane seated next to another domestic helper who suspiciously looks a lot like Jose Rizal. 2

At the start of her talk, she mentioned why Juana Change was created and she narrated her career story. She said that she did not come from a rich family, she was fatter and her skin was not “makinis” back then. Her mom would always find ways to find food for their family. She tried to enter PETA Theater and luckily she was accepted. After PETA, Mae decided to enter advertising and she said that she earned a lot (around 10-30k/day) in that field. She was able to help her family. A time came when she realized that her siblings are becoming dependent on her so she decided to stop giving them money. When she did that, one of her brothers told her “P****ngina mo!” She did not give in because she believes in tough love where in you need  to sacrifice something for the improvement of your loved ones.  She said “Loving is not always about giving sometimes it means holding back.”4

Next thing she mentioned was “Ang gusto natin baguhin kaya nating banggain”. When she started Juana Change, she was fatter. Juana Change judges the wrong doings of the government but one time, some people told her to improve herself also. That’s why aside from health reasons, she tried to lose weight and she was successful.5

Mae Paner said that Social Media  is a mean to communicate to your friends from far away, tool that can be used for business advertising and a weapon for peaceful protests and change.

She also said this line:

You cannot just click, like or talk about it in the internet but you also have something to do in the ground.

Meaning, as long as we share something on Facebook, retweet something on Twitter especially when it comes to National and Political Issues, we should also know the entire issue/problem and make a real life action/solution to it.

She also mentioned the time when she was sent to Malacanang because of the video she made which involves PNOY.

We also had an open forum were some people from the audience asked her, One of the questions was about the Cybercrime Law. Her answer was like people should know about the law and how would it protect them. Another question was if someone sued her and she just said “Aba wala, daganan ko sila eh” with laughter.

She also encouraged young people to join organizations for nation building because she believes in the power of the youth.
