The case of B

By Isabelle Laureta I was barely six years old. I had just transferred to a new school. All the kids around me knew each other. I watched them as they played and screamed and chatted. I knew no one. I turned to the boy I was seated with. Like everybody else, he knew most of the kids in the classroom. He was quite popular, and I heard he was a teacher’s son. I stared at him as he ate his snack—some fried breakfast food and rice. Why he was eating a rice meal for recess, I had no idea. Maybe that was why I was staring. But also, because the way he ate was very different from how boys I knew ate. He would take his time chewing, and carefully arrange the food on his spoon like it was the most delicate thing in the world. At one point, I coughed …

‘Let’s dance,’ so said Bowie (or ‘sumayaw, sumunod,’ so said the Hotdog)

Portrait by Jim Guiao Punzalan If last year’s hugely successful first serving of MTV Music Evolution Manila was dominated by male testosterone and showcased a stellar, practically all-male lineup of local and international hip hop artists and MCs, this year’s edition of the live music event is slated to be not only more far-reaching and universally fun, but also invigorated with relentless fan-girl screaming and some major ’80s and ’90s throwback moves care of our favorite titos and titas. MTV Music Evolution Manila 2016, happening tonight at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, wants fans and concert-goers to experience and discover the evolution of pop music and its dance influence that keeps us moving and having a hella goodtime no matter where we are in the Philippines. The one-night only concert event will headline international hitmaker OneRepublic, LA-grown electric dance trio Far East Movement, Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and son Gab Valenciano, singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha, and K-pop female group, Apink. Also taking the …

Meet the car of the future

Images by Noel B. Pabalate Meet Archer. Archer is a green-and-white striped car replete with doors, a steering wheel, a luggage compartment, upright seating, wind screen, lights, and other car accessories. Archer can go up to 35 kilometers per hour. Looking at it, you might think that Archer is just one big giant toy car, but if you drive it around, you’re sure to realize that this car-from-the-future, with a few more adjustments, can be driven around the metro, without consuming too much fuel. Archer is battery-powered. Archer is the future of cars. Made by De la Salle University’s (DLSU) Eco Car Team, Archer  was created in 2014. It has since been proving itself more and more road-worthy. It placed second during the 2015 Shell Eco-Marathon (SEM). During last year’s SEM, in a specially designed street circuit at the Rizal Park in Manila, Archer set the highest record in the Urban Concept-Battery Electric Category with a mileage of 78km/kWh. It …

Turning 23

Yo, I’m turning 23 next week and ever since June came (along with those glorious June memes and puns that have been circulating on social media lately), I’ve been turning this fact over and over in my head. I mean, part of me doesn’t really mind (I never really cared too much about my age because no matter what I do, I still look like a 14 year old), but a tiny part of me is like, “How the heck did that happen?” I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I’m now closer to 25 than I am to 20. Now, the perennial struggle of being in your twenties is that you don’t know what the eff you’re doing. I’ve been in my twenties for almost three years now. If this is a regular job, …

Kim is ready for the big leagues

By Gio Gloria De La Salle University Portrait by Noel Pabalate Talk to any athlete that has won a championship and more often than not, they’ll agree with the notion that winning is addicting. Once you’ve tasted victory, you never want to go back to finishing second, third, or even in last place. As a member of the De La Salle Zobel Women’s Volleyball Team, Kim Kianna Dy savored the feeling of victory after she won three championships in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Junior’s division. After two years of waiting in the wings, she has now emerged as the budding star of the De La Salle University Lady Spikers, who clinched the UAAP Season 78 Women’s Volleyball Championship after beating the Ateneo Lady Eagles in three thrilling games. “It’s different,” she says on her first college championship. “Playing for college is entirely different …

Free-d*mn right you can

By Isabelle Laureta On Sunday, we’ll be celebrating the anniversary of that day Emilio Aguinaldo went on the balcony of his home in Cavite and said, “Yo, Philippines! We’re free from the wraths of the Spanish colony! Yay us!” That’s non-verbatim, of course. And although we didn’t immediately get the sweet taste of freedom right then and there (because, well, just ask your history teachers), we eventually got it down the road. We’ve fought long and hard for our freedom from the Spanish era down to the Marcos dictatorship. Still, many people would argue that our freedom as a nation is just a myth we chose to believe in for convenience. True, there are still many factors that oppress us Filipinos. And there are a lot of indicators that tell us …
