    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.


    The kind peeps of Asian Secrets sent me a tub of their body scrub and herbal soap for promotion of their month-long sale, and I figured why not squeeze in a quick review of the product. I'm in no way an expert when it comes to these things but I can safely say naman na I'm no stranger to it. I do indulge in a body scrub every once in a while, a little pamper yourself session (mostly it's a combo of scrub for my face and body and hot oil for my hair) on a Saturday night when I want to stay longer in the shower after a tiring work week. But I'm not very particular about the brand, I just use whatever's available (aka what my mom bought).

    I've never tried any Asian Secrets product before but I do know about it because of their TVCs that featured Solenn Heusaff.

    I'm not much of a TV person, so any show or series I follow are mainly recommended by friends or those I find on the Internet. So when it comes to local series, I really know of none (well, yes, On the Wings of Love but I mainly watched it online). After OTWOL ended last February, I looked for something I could binge watch and something with the same flavor because, you know, we all need a happy pill to get through all this adulting. Haha.

    My The Civil Wars loving heart skipped a few beats when I noticed that there was some activity on John Paul White's Twitter account earlier last month: he changed his default photo and removed his bio, which previously said: "I am a War." Though I was internally screaming at the turn of events, it could just be out of whim. Nothing official. He just wanted to change his photo and move on from being a half of that duo.

    After the band's break up last 2014 (and my life was a bit sadder since then), JP left all his social media accounts untouched. The two cited "internal discord" as the reason for the split but neither spoke about it in black and white. Joy gave vague answers to interviews and JP maintained his distance from everything. He resurfaced early 2015 for this interview regarding his new indie label, Single Lock Records. Joy Williams then released a solo album, Venus. The first single off of it was titled "What a Good Woman Does," and Joy confirmed this is about TCW's break up and that yes, there were a couple of songs about John Paul. As for John Paul, if I dig hard enough online, I find some photos of him making appearances on some events.
