An easy listening song paired with an easy learning choreography. I had so much fun dancing to this because I could still remember I was having a great day at work. Well, you gotta channel that happy energy somewhere, amirite? :)

It's still such a surreal thing for me to digest that I have been living and breathing for 25 years as of today. Knowing that I have been through so much during these past quarter-century makes me overwhelmed sometimes. How many achievement, failures, friends, and foes have I gained? A lot I believe. They all have shaped my personality and the bridge of my journey in this life as complex as the maze in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire.
At this moment, I would like to just reflect on me and only myself during this sacred date of July 27th. A date that I have been yearning for the entire year, every year. It will never be enough time for me to talk through nor think about what I should have done or what I shouldn't have said. I'm very grateful for what God and universe have conspired through in the making of my existence. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It has been one hell of a ride.
Thank you to everyone that was here and there throughout my life path. Thank you to all the places that I've been in for teaching me to be thankful to my fully-working 5 (or 6?) senses and for reminding me to visit more places. Thank you to planet Earth for hosting me for more than 2 decades, I'm sorry I wasn't contributing enough to save you. I promise I will do more next years. And a huge last thank you to the universe who has a lot to offer but yet only a few to be discovered. Whilst the rest still remains unknown. Just like my future. How exhilarating!
Here's to another 25 years ahead! Hopefully and namaste. O:)

This is another song that I didn't get to finish learning due to my crappy time management. :( Although the second part was actually as great as this first one (from what I saw on my friend's video), this also would do for me. This song's beats were sick as! I can see myself bopping my head and feelin' myself on the dance floor somewhere in Jakarta's club throughout this song. :D

I was crazy about this song and choreo. I like how energetic I could be every time I hear an upbeat song. This was recorded by both my iPhone an my friend's GoPro. I kinda like how it could be edited from different angles.

Pop culture phenomenon! LOL. Whip Dance really affected me as #TeamInternet type of guy to say the least. Unfortunately I learned this choreo before I knew about the buzzing hype of the chill dance, hence I didn't really channel my inner ghetto dancer throughout this video haha.
I could still remember myself laughing and smiling non stop dancing to this song because it was super weird and unusual at that time. It's not hip hop, sort of, it's not contemporary, nor stomp/any other kind of dance. It has its own "style" which later on I knew why. :))

bandana: Monocle, tanks: Topman, jeans: Levi's, shirt: Aspesi, ring: H&M, bracelet: Mister Chrono, sneakers: Common Projects
Fashion is fun. For me fashion is all about trying new things and just having a good time with it. So I like to experiment with my outfit because let's be honest here, I don't really have a particular style. I'm all over the place. I wear what I think I like.
Therefore, I started with my mesh tanks with massive wolf print on it. A super badass statement piece. The gnarly look to it made me want to just go for a laidback band member kinda feel. So I rolled my classic blue jeans and tied a plaid shirt on my waist so I can wear it later when the weather isn't so sizzling hot. Then I chose a pair of blue sneakers, a ring, a bracelet, and a bandana.
It's funny because the ring was supposed to be black, but now it's faded into this some sort of weird snake skin... LOVE IT! Also the "bandana" is actually a Tenugui - twist on the traditional Japanese decorative towel makes for a useful accessory. But I wore it as a bandana, just because. And the "bracelet" is actually a watch strap. I ended up liking the result. :)

Another song containing Justin Bieber that I love! The beats and basses are very jungle-esque, interesting approach. And the collaboration between Skrillex & Diplo somehow worked harmoniously. Oh, btw this is not the full choreography because I couldn't attend the entire class. Kinda bummed about it, but what the hell. Next song please!

When I need to supply myself with new ideas and inspirations I always get lost with books. I read what I think I like, it doesn't necessarily have to be a 500-pages-thick kind of book. Magazines with lots of pictures usually do it for me. And I like to read where there's not so much noise around. A perfect corner to be a bookworm.
Today I picked a baby blue polo shirt and a pair of black pants to just lounge around. Since the polo already gave a sporty look, I emphasized it more with colorful running shoes. I also brought my shades just in case the sun light found its way to the corner.

Don't you just love this song right away? This video was taken at some of the first times I started stepping my feet back on the dance studio floor. I still needed to figure out the best angle to place the camera, hence the poor quality of the video. Btw, how's everyone doing today? :)

This song has been my obsession for the past few weeks now. It's freaking catchy and definitely a jam/tune to dance to!! I'm pretty sure it'll make me go crazy in the club next weekend. :") Oh from my observation, it's kinda on trend at the moment to have another celebrity's name as a song title or in the lyrics. Miley, Kanye, Britney, Madonna, etc.
