Feature // November 9, 2018

Let’s face it—it’s everyone’s secret dream to have a following. Whether it’s pretending you’re walking an audience—non-existent as it may be—through a step-by-step process on  cooking pasta when you’re alone in the kitchen, or even starting your random videos of the day with the overused “Hey, guys!” Many of us have a hidden desire to…

An intertwined fabric of heart, culture, and food: The legacy of Chef Hiroaki Otsuka
Feature // August 24, 2018

As a little girl, I was at the Otsuka household a lot. While at work,  mom and dad always preferred leaving me with people they trusted—those who, without a shadow of a doubt, wouldn’t only watch over me, but would treat me as one of their own. They always preferred family, which is why I…

A reckless abandon into a stand-alone sound: An exclusive with The Ransom Collective
Student Spotlight // March 31, 2018

Now to others, this may not be so, as many see the Philippine music industry as sort of the awkward cousin (ten times removed) of the glamorous and popular America. However, despite the petty controversy, which is often tainted with negativity, bad vibes, and backlash—whatever else you want to call it, the truth of the…

Of anti moons and universal acceleration: The Flat Earth theory
Feature // February 28, 2018

It’s 2018. Gone are the days when science was the weird kid at the playground (or at least they should be). Puberty must have hit science hard because it’s now pretty much one of the “cool kids”. Science continues to challenge and defy the boundaries of space exploration, going beyond the limitations of the human…

Feature // December 29, 2017

More often than not, the shared memories between two individuals is the thread that holds a relationship together.
