90’s RnB Rewind with SWV and TLC in Manila

 

 As a loud and proud 90’s kid, my taste in music wasn’t limited to grunge and pop. I’m also a fan of 90’s R&B, hence I was one of those sentimental Pinoys who felt the excitement of finally seeing two legendary female R&B groups perform for the first time in Manila – SWV and TLC. Very nostalgic indeed for me, and it’s because I’m watching this once-in-a-lifetime concert plus it’s my first in a long, long, long time to be at the Smart Araneta Coliseum a.k.a. The Big Dome (since Disney On Ice in the 1980s…oh well, #southgirlproblems). I’m just […]

I engaged in a conversation with kuya Ferdinand, who drives ACA 5762, and asked him politely about his experience as a GrabTaxi driver. He told me that he is earning well, thanks to GrabTaxi, and he prides himself with take-home money that he spent to pay for his family’s personal expenses. It was just a casual talk, a regular […]
