See how these Filipino tastemakers keep up with their passions in the new normal

Times have changed, with many of us spending entire days in the same place, doing the things essential to our day-to-day lives. As a way to get by, our minds often go beyond the four walls of our homes to find creative inspiration and uncover new interests daily. These tastemakers are no different; here’s how they have taken the time to reset and unlock new passions over the past few months:

As a way to fill up her downtime and her social media feed, Belle Daza shared how she recently got into pottery. Initially reluctant to try her hand at it for fear of not excelling, Belle realized she was the only one standing in her way of taking up something that gave her joy. With a video documenting her pottery journey, Belle showed how these activities done just for herself inject a different type of fulfillment into her life.

Doing a detox for her closet, Pam Quinones keeps her style game in tip-top shape by taking on different sartorial challenges while at home. Selecting old pieces and revamping how she styles them; showing love for locals by wearing Filipino-made garments at least once a week; transitioning from loungewear to workwear when meetings are scheduled: these are the ways she keeps in tune with her personal style and maintains a well-curated closet.

Adapting his business and design philosophy to the new normal, Mark Bumgarner launched The Armor Project, his collection of sustainable protective gear. While known for his elegant evening and bridal wear, Mark pivoted his studio to cater to the times. By exploring different sides of his design aesthetic, he unveiled his take on menswear and outerwear, his way of supporting and uplifting the local fashion community.

Looking to photography as his form of therapy, Mark Nicdao reflected on how he approaches shoots and explored different ways to experiment with portraits during the quarantine. Practicing self-timed portraits and even nighttime shots with old props and toys found at home, Mark was able to channel different sides of his creativity to unlock new ideas.

  1. I learned more new stuff on this fat loss issue. A single issue is that good nutrition is extremely vital whenever dieting. A big reduction in fast foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and whitened flour products may be necessary. Holding wastes organisms, and harmful toxins may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While certain drugs momentarily solve the problem, the horrible side effects aren’t worth it, and they also never provide more than a non permanent solution. This is a known proven fact that 95 of dietary fads fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this web site.
