Copy-pasted my answers on Zwen Dee's The Questionnaire with his permission, of course. The It Room is a Facebook group of stylish like-minded people. I am honored to be featured in their The Questionnaire Series. I reposted it here because I had so much fun answering.

1. What is your idea of happiness?


Happiness is those few seconds before sleep feeling tired from a day of hard work knowing that you have done something good that day.

2. Who were your style icons growing up?

Audrey Hepburn. Everything she wore in the movie Funny Face is stunning. And Coco Chanel because she is fashion personified.

3. What clothing item could you wear everyday and why?

An over-sized cardigan, because I always feel cold and comfort before anything else.

4. What's your guilty pleasure?

I get massages more frequently than most people.

5. Favorite Disney Movie?

I am not into Disney movies, too mainstream for my taste. But I enjoyed Finding Nemo.

6. Who do you love to follow on social media?

I have been in love with Garance Dore for five years now. Other than the French fashion illustrator, I follow Leandra Medine of Man Repeller for her witty take on everything; Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper girl for her dreamy style; and I watch Jefree Star a lot on Youtube. In the local scene, my favorites are Saab Magalona, Professional Heckler, and Helga Weber. I don't care for fashion bloggers anymore.

7. Last Song Syndrome?

Boom Clap by Charli XCX. The song is in my waking up playlist and it always ends up replaying in my head.

8. Which talent would you most like to have?

I wish I could sing. Yun lang. I find people who can sing attractive in general.

9. On what occasion do you lie?

When I would make things worse by telling the truth.

I want to forget everytging I wore, can we please move on to the next question? Haha!

12. Who's your favorite Kate?

That's easy. Kate Middleton.

13. Your Fashion Fantasy?

Wearing a red dress, as red and as elegant as Audrey Hepburn's in Funny Face, standing outside Supreme Court and hearing my name announced as the top 1 in the bar. And then I'd bring out a crown and crown myself because a woman can succeed in life, be proud of it, and revel in it.

14. Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

OMG, like every basic bitch out there.

Opening scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn wearing Givenchy.

Pia Wurtzbach's win as Miss Universe made me literally cry out loud in joy.

Anything other than my dignity and my faith.

Pres. Duterte, Tariq Ramadan, Christiane Amanpour, and Oprah Winfrey.

That I am going far from where I have been, that I have rebuilt my life from scratch, that I have met new friends and retained the old ones.

20. How would you like to die?

Like how my dad died, at peace knowing that my loved ones will be okay. And hopefully as beautiful as my grandma, shriveled by old age but majestic still.
