The Catanduanes Reef Break is an event geared towards helping the locals of Catanduanes, specifically in Puraran, through providing proper boards and uplift their well-being – one local at a time. It is an event organized by Surf Catanduanes and Surf4Ezra, a non-profit organization (founded by High School batch mates and friends) dedicated to continue the advocacies of Ezra ‘Tisoi’ Efondo. The specific objectives of the Catanduanes Reef Break 2015 still remain: first, to generate funds that would enable our local surfers to buy quality surfboards, as well as to fund their travel expenses during competitions; and second, to foster, develop, and promote sustainable tourism industry in Catanduanes Island.

Roots Rock Reggae: Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe at Metro Bar – Oct. 17, 2012

Music By October 30, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

I arrived while Reggae Mistress was onstage and immediately went to find my friends, The Chongkeys.

Someone took this photo, of the guy sitting on the step on the right, and I just got included.

The Chongkeys and I all went in together but I went to the bar first to get a drink and then on to the mezzanine to take photos and videos. My first reaction when I went in was, “WOW, this place is HUUUUUGE!” See, I’ve never been to Metro Bar before. Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe went onstage first. And this blog is part 1 of 3.

Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe + Coffeebreak Island at 70s Bistro – Oct 3, 2012

Music By October 4, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , 1 Comment

Last week, after my shoot at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater for Dulaang U.P.’s The Seagull, I found myself at 70s Bistro where Banda ni Kleggy, Paraluman, Callalily and supposedly 6Cyclemind, were playing. I really wanted to be at Route 196 because it was on my way back to our house, but that night, The Dawn was playing and all I really needed was to sit quietly in some table in some corner and just be by myself, and squeezing in among a crowd of The Dawn fans wasn’t going to let that happen.

I am an absolute Chekhov fan, and I was so moved, (notwithstanding comments and a probable review, or maybe just a slew of my own thoughts on the play, the word “review” being too constricting), that I felt I needed some time to process that theater experience.

Although I found the Filipino version not as compelling as the English version, something that I attributed to the failure of the acting ensemble, and therefore, I was not as depressed as the week before, I still felt that I needed some music as a fitting end to the evening. It was a choice between UpDharmaDown at Route 196 and reggae night with Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe with Coffeebreak Island at 70s Bistro.

I’m friends with CBI so that was one point, and I needed a reggae band for a friend’s friend’s wedding, two points, so off I went.

I arrived at 70s Bistro in the middle of heavy rains, and there was just enough people in the bistro for me to be comfortable enough to take pictures.

Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe came up first because Jun hadn’t arrived yet.
