Lately, I’ve started cooking at home. I’m not much of a chef. I fry everything. This may not be the best way to feed myself or my family. Who can help me with this? One of the first people to come to mind is Chip Lopez. Not only has she spent thousands of hours thinking of eating healthy, she walks the talk. She eats well. Treats herself well. And puts in the work to keep her mind body and soul in tip top shape. On top of that, her “why” is to share that wealth of knowledge to the world. I could not have asked for a more perfect interviewee. She was generous with her story, generous with her wealth of knowledge, and generous with her time.
Every now and then, a buzz can be heard all around Cebu. Sometimes, it’s about a new mall opening, a popular movie, a weird scandal, or in this case, the presence of otherwise distant animals on our shores.
“Welcome to the wild.”
We were excited for our visit to the Cebu Safari and Adventure Park. The prospect of showing breathing animals to our two year old was enough to brave the two hour drive up North to Barangay Corte, Carmen (about 50 kilometers from Cebu City).
On Following Your Path Despite Crab Mentality, Doubt, and Unbelievers with Carlo Rodriguez of Lilila Primitive Art
Living a creative life is not easy.
Sometimes, people don’t share what they know. Sometimes, your closest friends doubt your life choices. Sometimes, the common man looks at you with disbelief.
No one said a creative life was easy.
My connection with him started in the Cebu music scene. He knew all the cool bands, was always planning something exciting, and his gigs never disappointed. It occurred to me that I didn’t know his story. Considering that he didn’t play an instrument, I always wondered how he became THE guy. He started as an outsider of the music scene, but in a few short years, he was organizing the biggest gigs in Cebu. How did that happen?
In August 2016, we released the Zerothreetwo Logo caps. Since then, we’ve seen our little logo pop out all over the world. We love it when you bring a little piece of Cebu with you. Our merch is for people in the know. Something that doesn’t scream, “I’m from Cebu!” Rather than a scream, it’s more like a wink and a knowing nod.
Drawing from that experience, we’ve re-released the Zerothreetwo Logo Caps in new colors that supplements the upcoming Summer months.
Most of our releases have leaned towards the dark end of the spectrum, now that summer is fast approaching, we want to show off the more colorful side of Zerothreetwo.
This is the first step towards more color.
For the first episode of Zerothreetwo Conversations, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about what you can expect from this podcast.
When people learn that I commute via bicycle, the same questions pop up.
“Dili ba kuyaw? (Isn’t it scary?)” A little bit, there is no shortage of dash cam accidents that happen all over Cebu on the internet. “Dili ba init? (Isn’t it hot?)” This is the Philippines, so yes. “Dili ba abug? (Isn’t it dusty?)” Sometimes, but not as often as you think.
Biking as a commute around Cebu is not for everyone, but because of our traffic it might be the perfect option for you.
The organizer, and chief drinker, was handing out drinks. I asked for a beer, and he promptly gave me a Light.
“Uhm… do you have Red Horse?” I said.
“Ah! Are you a Cebuano?”
Many things set Cebuanos apart from the rest of the Philippines. We’re here to celebrate those differences.
