Yay, I'm ecstatic! Haha! Thank you and see you and the band soon!! :)
Awesome! :D See you in a future gig!
Fire's my fave. :) Yay! Can't wait to meet you! I'll introduce myself nalang sa gig, if that's okay. :))
Cool! We love performing that song live. :D Of course, that'd be great. Meet the band na rin. :)
I want to see and hear you play live. :( Awesome stuff, you got. :')
Thanks a lot! Which song do you like the most? We're hoping to have a few this May. You should come! We'll post it online. :)
Are now with/seeing/dating that girl who got your blue rose?
Nahh..
Do you want a church wedding?
Of course!! I already know I'll be sobbing like a baby once the wedding doors open for the bridal march.

What are you waiting for?
Are you quoting Duncan Sheik's "Genius?" :3
May orsem din ba sa ateneo law?
Yeah, meroon din pala! Astig nga eh.
Are you single since birth?
Yup!
Are you now seeing/dating/with that girl who got your blue rose?
Nah..
Who did you give your blue rose to? :)
Someone I love deeply.
I was gonna give you my blue rose but I chickened out. :( Miss you, Mateo!
Oh really? Aww! Haha Either way, that's really sweet of you.
I just want to thank you for being an inspiration. I just broke up with my boyfriend who didn't treat me well. Guys like you who treat girls with respect makes me believe that God has planned for someone better to come my way. Thank you.
Wow, thank you. :) But hey, I didn't do anything; you were the one who stood up for yourself, chose and believed that you really deserve better. That isn't easy at all. You don't always need someone to be happy. Your recent decision already proved that to yourself. And you're right, he's out there somewhere for sure and you better believe it! In the meantime, Dahan-dahan ka lang. :)

What is the greatest challenge you've ever had in life and love?
Secret. :)
In all honesty, if you weren't told that water was tasteless, how would you describe its taste? (serious question -_-)
Uhh. Maybe we can borrow the word "transparent" and somehow ascribe its see-through nature to its taste? :))
Have you ever been cheated on?
No, I've never been in a relationship. I know friends who have... I felt so bad for them.
How are you able to handle all the responsibilities and expectations from other people? Didn't it intimidate you?
Oh yeah, I felt the weight of everything... Well, I made sure I wasn't out to please anyone. That I did what I did because I really wanted it. Deba nga, don't be something you're not? From there, I took it one day at a time. Dahan-dahan lang talaga dapat. :)

Fire is my favorite song from your EP :) Would it be alright if I cover an acapella version of it? :D
That's awesome! I don't have a favorite song from my EP, but "Fire" is definitely a special one. :) An acapella version? Of course! It'd be my honor. Make it yours! :)
Who are you giving your Blue Rose to?
I don't know. I think I'll just trade it for a beer. :))

What are your thoughts on leaving the undergrads you've connected with in your college stay (like amp, guidon, comtech community etc.)
I'm going to miss everyone so much. That's it, really.
How did you write "In My Head"? Big fan!
Yay! Thank you so much. I'm very glad you like it.
The G-F#/D chord progression/plucking pattern had been in my mind for a while; but the first line of the first verse came first. After that, the chorus lyrics and the melody came almost simultaneously. I was going through something that time so I drew inspiration from that particular experience. :)

Ano yung naging pagkukulang ng Ateneo education mo at paano kaya iyon aayusin?
Magandang tanong! Sa totoo lang, hindi ko pa talagang napag-isipan yan. Ngunit, masgusto ko atang sagutan yan harap-harapan. Mahirap na kapag online eh--twitter pa. :))
Pardon me for the heavy question, but what would you do if you love someone but are worried that what they feel for you is fading?
No worries! I prefer answering these over the ridiculous and hilariously awkward ones. :))
Be proactive--talk to the person about it. Be honest. Thinking will get you nowhere. :) Good luck!

"funemployment." HAHA, i like that one.
It's a more gentle, self-affirming term as opposed to "jobless", I guess. :))
Who is your role model?
My dad.

What inspired you to write "Crawling"?
"Crawling" is the first song I wrote for my solo project. It was a nice experiment because it was the first time I wrote anything that catchy and "pop" because I was all rock rock rock music in high school. The chords just came out of the blue and the chorus, "I can't fall any faster than I already have," was the first lines ever written for "Crawling". I didn't know what I was talking about until I decided it would be a "I have a super big crush on you" kind of song so I wrote around that using experiences on with my own crushes. :)
