Miss Fortune

December 15, 2013

Its been a crazy few days. The other nite, we were having  a blast at MCafe, with DJ Shortkut on the 1s and 2s. All good vibes, the family was there and after a hard day’s work in Quiapo, Avenida & Divi, me & the rest of the team were out for a good time.

This photo was taken by Joey Too fresh. Image

We were killin it, just vibin out and enjoying the fresh cuts when all of a sudden, I noticed my bag missing. My bag which had my wallet, camera,iPhone plus Tolo’s watch & Matt’s phone was gone. Turns out somebody jacked my shit right under our noses.

Its just mad ironic that we were in the so called “underbelly” of Manila the whole day and nothing happened but an intruder at our homebase? How wrong is that. I even spoke on the phone with the person who stole my shit & had one of the creepiest conversations i had with him saying how he knew me from way back & that he liked my face.

Yes im dealing with a little bit of loss coz for my work, i use my camera & iphone the most. But i guess the lesson i have been learning the past few days is how immaterial material is. Yes i am used to most of the comforts in life. I barely pay any bills, have all the hi tech gadgets a person could need but honestly what does it all mean then?

I have come to a conclusion to simplify my life now more than ever, and take charge. My future is not dictated by the price or amount of my belongings, but the value I have learned with all my experiences. Cut my losses and move on.

Funny enough, spoke to a friend of my future plans and guess what we came up with. For the next year its all gona be about “Adult Bea 2014”. More hard work for myself in the background. You will not know what i hit you with. Its all going to be a surprise and its not even coming from the negative. Although there is anger coz of pain, i know I have to be wounded to let more light in again. So i guess here goes to another 40 days of my life. Its time for change and im thankful all these shit is happening coz its making me realize what I prefer, what my moral standards are.

I have my dreams in place. I know where Im heading even though i do not yet know which route im taking. So heres to Huge Leaps for mankind.

To the fvtvre.

Heavy on that Boogie 12.4.13

December 7, 2013

Three days ago was a little crazy. Coming from the Allstars Garage sale, i went straight to the Fort for my homies’ bday dinner.  It was crazy!  We ended up pre gaming at Red Garlic,.a really nice spot that has NO corkage! Awesome rite?

Anyway, after downing so much alcohol (im a lightweight now, or am i? haha) we went straight to URBN for Heavy Boogie’s event ft. DJ Jazzy Jeff, Skillz, Shortkut, Kristian Hernandez, Complex & Badkiss. It was a dope vibe, mad people dancing everywhere just going off.

This video i made is a little short though. Honestly, i was in too deep dancing that night & yes i was really,really faded as well so pardon the shortness of the vid.. You’ll still get the feel though so enjoy!

Philippine Allstars Davao Trip (Nov 2013)

November 22, 2013

Philippine Allstars went to Davao a few weeks ago for Coke’s Christmas Caravan. Such an awesome opportunity to be able to catch up with our old friends and also meet new ones.

Tons of firsts in this trip!

First time we ever did an 1 hr and half show with just pure dancing (I could feel your energy from 2 planets away on the reals)  and as for me, first time to direct a whole show on my own. (Thanks btw mami for trusting me! WALEY Productions in Full Effect hehe ). Really grateful for this amazing experience. And Happy Anniversary to Come Back crew! Dope house party!

Peep this to see what went on! PZ! (through Bea’s eyes haha)

Here’s couple of photos as well.

Eyeknowtheledge

November 17, 2013

Last Aug. i hurt my eye in a freak accident. We were at a show & I wanted to take a picture. I forgot i tied my id to my left hand,  raised it and bam! There it went in my eye,which caused an abrasion that made me allergic to the sun and unable to dance for almost a week (& that was  a few weeks before leaving for Vegas for Hip Hop International, when a week seemed like an eternity). I constantly have to deal with eye strain every now & then, i call sprain for the eye. It hurts hella bad, to the point that it actually feels like my eye is ripping open.

Now months after here i go again. Ever since going home from the Bay i haven’t really had time to rest. I’ve been out & about, doing my thing and i guess i haven’t completely recovered yet. Well, the other day Kali had sore eyes & i was tripping out coz i knew i wasn’t up to par yet. so, i woke up 2 days later, unable to open my eyes, coz they were so sore.

Image

Its been 2 days & i feel useless, coz mostly everything i need to do has to do with my eyes, reading, watching, typing, dancing  etc. (im actually wearing shades as i type this. its THAT bad). Its a whole lot better now, but its still mad swollen. I can’t deal with light yet, & is still very sensitive. Im actually drinking Berocca now to improve my immune system, also Bragg’s Apple Cider to detox & shit. I also need to buy sunglasses soon that actually protect the eyes  against harsh light. If anyone could give me recomendations, it would be appreciated.

Image

Here’s my eyes tonight. Its better now, but yeah, definitely i would prefer them to be matching haha.

PS, yes eyeknowtheledge that stuff like this mostly happens to me. haha

Tacloban Cypher (UNCUT) March 2013

November 16, 2013

We did a show in Tacloban last March 2013 for America in 3D where we got the opportunity to meet and chill with the dance community of Tacloban. It was an awesome experience. Everyone was just vibin out at the local spot, the Amphitheatre and just kicking it.

I just wanted to share the uncut video of the cypher we had. I still can’t believe what Yolanda has done and i just wanna give a huge shout out to our brothers & sisters that were affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

Our prayers are with you. Kapit lang po, God is with us!

The Return of Turntables on the Hudson (NYC) in MANILA (MCafe 11.7.13)

November 8, 2013

Been hearing about how crazy good the music was in Costa Pacifica Baler from my homies this past weekend. Found out Turntables on the Hudson we’re gonna do MCafe last night so i came through (even though typhoon Yolanda was fast approaching).

Man, last night was one of the best nights i’ve had in awhile! Awesome music provided by  DJ Badkiss, DJ Nickodemus and DMR plus a lil live percussion set with Mister Marcus & RWG. Now im actually truly regretting not rocking sneakers yesterday.

Shot & Edited by yours truly

Peep this vid of how good the vibes were last nite:

Back in Manila!

November 6, 2013

I’m back my friends! After almost a year long hiatus, i decided to bring my blog  back in order to share my journey with everyone. I just got back from a month long stay in the US  for Mighty 4 Supreme Bgirl Invitational battle and it was awesome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reconnected with my homies, met new friends and learned so much. I just want to thank Paulskee for blessing me & giving me this chance to be part of the Mighty 4 legacy, especially on its 15th year anniversary. I’ll keep this post short, so for now, here’s a little something i took home from the bay. Get HYPHY!!!
