Who’s that Pokémon trainer?

By Isabelle Laureta Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks, then you probably know by now about the most revolutionary mobile application since Instagram or Snapchat—Pokémon Go. Not all “Pokémon Trainers” are the same though. Just like our dear pocket monsters, Pokémon Go players can be classified into different types, too. So which type are you? 1. The Overnight Connoisseur Fans have been introduced to and went immediately crazy for Pokémon since they were, what, 10 years old? But some only get on the loop now since it has been gloriously revived by the smart phone app. These are the Overnight Connoisseurs, or if you want to be crass, the Feeling Fans. Overnight Connoisseurs are getting a lot of unnecessary hate, because other people say they only became “fans” because of the game, but there’s nothing wrong with that. They’re part of the …

Style it like an expert

By Kaye Estoista-Koo Think that jogger pants are tricky (drop pants, OMG)? Consider this your fashion lesson on putting the look together. LIZ UY, celebrity stylist Know your style “Joggers should be an everyday wear. Don’t just follow a trend, or copy a layout you saw. Know your body type, your personal style, and work with it.” Use menswear “I totally suggest using menswear, I always borrow from my boyfriend, and I always get from my brother Vince’s closet. Find a piece of clothing you like, and don’t chuck it just because you think it’s not for your gender.” You can totally layer even with ’Pinas weather “Even if you remove the pieces one by one, the outfit should still have maximum impact if you chose your layers well. For a casual hang-out with the gang, a white shirt with a camo button-down and hoodie will make …

Not just another pretty face

Portrait by Noel Pabalate Video by Jay Bustamante   With a face like her—aquiline nose, high cheekbones, bow-shaped lips, and the coveted mestiza features—you’d think the 18-year-old teen superstar Liza Soberano has everything going for her. Wrong. The 18-year-old teen star’s slow rise to superstardom (she started her career at 12) she didn’t owe to her good genes but to hard work, perseverance, and a lot of workshops in acting, speaking, and even just talking to people. She used to be so shy she couldn’t look people straight in the eye, much less talk. And when you’re Liza Soberano-pretty, you can’t really enter a room without turning heads. Her struggle was very real. She was almost too pretty for primetime TV.  When she landed her breakout role as the modest and hardworking strawberry farmer Agnes Calay in the primetime rom-com TV series Forevermore, Liza curled her hair, darkened her skin with makeup, …

Taking the wheel

By Isabelle Laureta Life update (for those who care): I’ve started learning how to drive! Yay! And when I say learning, I mean I still scream internally whenever my driving instructor or my dad yell, “Brake!” Why is this important for you to know? Well, it’s not. But what I’m about to share is. When I first started my driving lessons, I thought I’m just going to learn, well, how to drive a car and not kill myself in the process. But in the middle of it all, I knew I was learning something more than putting my hands at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock of the steering wheel. I know experiences are supposed to teach us at least one life lesson, but this particular period (a milestone, perhaps?) of my 20-something life changed the way …

The Boy Who Lived Returns

For an ordinary person, a non-magic folk, or popularly called (in the Wizarding world), a “Muggle,” the 31st of July is no more than an ordinary day. But for witches, wizards, and even dark creatures, it was the day that Harry Potter, the “chosen one,” was born, the birthday of the person who defeated the dark wizard Lord Voldemort, and also, the birthday of J.K. Rowling, who sparked the magic in all of us through her Harry Potter series. Nine years after the seventh book of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was published and five years after the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 movie was released, our favorite wizard Harry Potter is back—well, not that he ever left the hearts of the Potterheads who are continuously reliving the stories, reading and watching it over and over again. The story may (or so we thought) have ended, but the magic continues. None of the …

Lucky You!

He got scouted for modeling at 10, got signed at 12, and from that day on, has been on photo shoots and runways. You might think Lucky Blue Smith’s all about fashion and looks, but he’s way more than that. Manila Bulletin Lifestyle got to sit down with Lucky and we discovered who the world’s most famous young male model is behind the six-foot-two-inch frame, piercing blue eyes, and platinum hair.   How did you get started in modeling? I was 12 years old when I got signed. Backtracking a little bit, my sister got scouted when I was 10 years old when we were still living in Utah. She got scouted and signed by Next in Los Angeles and the agent told me “We want to see you in a couple of years,” and then a few years went by and I forgot all about …

The call of August

Text and image by Isabelle Laureta We had this rule in grade school that discouraged us students from speaking in Filipino—well, not discourage, but the rules said we should only speak in English or else our teachers wouldn’t acknowledge us, and to me, that was pretty much the same thing. What was worse is that if we got “caught” speaking in Filipino, we’d have to pay five pesos, as if speaking our native language was a crime that deserved some sort of “punishment.” Now, before any of you protest, let me just say that I get why our teachers required us to speak in English. I now know that it was for our own sake, and the skill of conversing in straight English would be an advantage to us in the future. But shouldn’t Filipino—our very own native language—receive the same regard, especially from Filipinos like us? Don’t you think …
