Has it ever crossed your mind that blogging will be as big as this? (Given the fact that blogging is now considered as a marketing aid in propagating a specific brand and/or a campaign)

To be honest, NO! But I’ m really happy with how blogging has evolved from being a personal space online and now that you can influence people through your thoughts. Of course in a good way.

Aside from blogging, what’s keeping you busy nowadays?

I’m currently working at Jagnus Design Studio in Ronac Art Center. So yeah, that’s kind of my official job right now and I’m happy because I’m learning a lot from that firm! Thanks to my mentors Ar. Sonny Sunga and Ar. Arnold Austria! And…i’m still dancing! Yaay! Haha! Hope i can still compete internationally though.

For you, what is life without blogging?

Life without blogging would be… boring? I mean, with so much technology around us today, I think it is always better to put that on use and help people understand things and events. It is always good to share your craft to others and try to influence them (positively).
