The nature of my work as a part-time blogger and as a business person entail work extended up to the weekends. Even Sundays! To keep me sane, I make it a point that even for a short period of time, I need to experience non work-related activities. Like my usual weekend escapades with my older brother. The Gourmand Market was another opportunity that I'd regret to miss. I originally planned on going on the second day but since it was my "usual" work weekend, we managed to go on the last day.

I have two sets of bags. One for work and the other, play. This bag I'm featuring obviously falls on the latter category.
I brought this (along with a luggage) last long weekend, August 29 - 31, to Cebu. It held my laptop and other gadgets, some reading materials including the August issue of Smile magazine where the Sprayground bag brand was also featured, and my survival pills. I didn't use the bag to its maximum potential though, meaning: I didn't carry that much stuff. If I did, I'm pretty sure the bag can handle the weight.

Me and my older brother were way past our gaming phase (or is he?). He was the one who introduced me to that online bait of a game Ragnarok which I took, hook line and sinker. It was how we bonded then. At the sewers of Prontera Culvert. Hunting for the Golden Thief Bug card. With him, playing the awesome assassin, and me, the wimpy Priest. I got played! And well, too.
Fast forward to five years later, my brother introduced me to the art of drinking beer with food (those years in between were spent drinking beer just for the sake of drinking beer, without art). It was also his way of us two reconnecting with our dad whom we lost when I was just five. Our dad was a healthy beer-drinker, by the way. He preferred the San Miguel Beer brand, of course.
Drinking beer became like a regular tribute of some sort to our dad that's why as much as possible, me and my brother go out on weekends to drink, outside the comfort of our home. It's also our way of bonding as mature people. Our dad would've been proud.
We're over frequenting bars and any nighttime setups to drink beer, by the way. These days, we prefer somewhere with enough natural lighting (I like to take good photos, too), chill setup, and good food to enjoy with our beer. Apart from ourselves, we also like good company. Not that we need to chat with those people but it's nice to be under the same mini-atmosphere of individuals who prefer the same things as you do. The Esquire Weekend Cookout which was held last April 18 at the Power Plant Mall was exactly what we were looking for.

Okay, before anything else, this is not a personal post about what it's like to be living in my shoes. I don't do sappy stuff.
This is just simply my way of promoting a contest which is being hosted by my friends from Bucketfeet.

I usually don't talk much about what I wear on a Lookbook entry here on the blog. It's just not my style. If I did, then I'm doubting two things. First, my sense of
style what looks good on me. Second, my photographer's eye. I don't wanna insult myself and the latter, so I'll just shut up and let the photos do the talking.
I'm at a stage where I'm over seeking attention with my style choices. With years of hits and misses, I already know what I want and what looks good on me and I'm confident about it. That's what Axe Black's latest campaign, "Less Effort, More Style", is all about. AXE Black, with its light and refined notes, caters to the understated guy, one who is confident in himself and does not need to demand attention.
