Perks and press cons that is.
Philippine Fashion Week is over for me (it officially ends Sunday) and it's been a pretty tiring week. Lots of running in heels, writing, and booze to keep myself sane. Oh, and becoming fashion roadkill (with matching bruise, just in time for Halloween) basically sums up the finale of fashion week for me.
That being said, I'm beginning to really fall in love with STATUS, especially with the STATUS team. The work is hard, but the perks and the people make up for it.
Case in point, yesterday one of my editors assigned me to attend a press con for MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking), a campaign that promotes freedom and human rights. Rock band Evaline and MTV VJ Holly would be at the press con to answer our questions.
But turns out, the set-up was that each person would have a one-on-one interview with VJ Holly and Evaline for 10 minutes each. Ok, at that point I kind of just died a little bit.
Aside from the obvious, I had a pretty awesome time at the press-con because I met so many new people including Jam 83.3's DJ Sasha (it's a radio station here in Manila). We got to talk a bit and she's really cool.
I went to go interview Holly first, and the girl is gorgeous! On top of that, she was so sweet and adorable and I really loved her cross tattoo.
Next up was Evaline, an up and coming rock band who's toured with Placebo and the Young Guns. The fan girl inside me was jumping, I mean come on! Six gorgeous rockstars, and they were all mine for a good 10 minutes! HAHA!
This is super embarrassing to post, but whatever, it was so awkward just standing there just in the middle, so I wanted to be all fun and do something. This corny pose was all I could think of. So sad!
