Food + Podcast = Foodcast @ Midnight Mercato

I had the chance to cover the grand launch of RJ Ledesma’s Midnight Mercato last Friday.

Here’s a small chunk of my interview with RJ, yet one of my idols in the industry of men’s magazines.

Fade to Black

One subtle symptom that you’re (kinda) missing college is when you long to be that then asinine, happy-go-lucky freshman who had to look up to some upperclassmen for “guidance.” I especially felt that way recently when I had to go to an org event care of Kea saving my shrunken wallet. I had to be fine  foremost with being called an alumnus when some meager 15 units passed like it was just, uh well, yesterday. ( Read more… )
