Anvaya Cove Behind the Scenes

Just to be clear, when I say I go to shoots, I’m never in front of the camera (except to act as a stand-in for blocking).
My sister already has the modelling side spectacularly covered! I’m usually found behind the camera, art directing or buzzing around the location or telling our actual models what to do.
Last week, we spent 3 days and 2 nights over at Anvaya Cove shooting for their image bank and video.
Chabeli and I worked with Elle Decoration photographer, At Maculangan, Cinemaworks, Hexacam Media and our production and wardrobe stylists, Marta Lovina and Martin Masado—There were some bumps along the way, but overall, it was a blast working with everybody!

At in his element.
Coco’s alternate career.
We all had to do a little climbing for this one.

Cinemaworks’ awesome crew! Love working with these guys.


Hexacam guys with their awesome helicam!
Last shot!
There’s a different kind of thrill (paranoia and jitters) right before and right after a shoot.
I’m still deciding if I like the feeling. Hahaha! Oh, how I wish we get a chance to take a dive in one of Anvaya’s lovely pools one day! I keep thinking about the bubbling jacuzzi-type pool.

Singapore May 2013 Part One

This trip, we were off to visit another friend studying for his Masters Degree at SMU. We spent the first day wandering the streets of Chinatown and Bugis while we had a full day at Universal Studios on our second. Part Two of this post will feature days three and four.
Mmm. We were famished when we landed at Changi and made a beeline for Sakae Sushi!

Hong Kong November 2013

It was a spur-of-the-moment, let’s-go-to-somewhere kind of a thing when we decided to purchase our plane tickets for Hong Kong. It was a country I’ve been to twice, prior to this trip— Once, when I was four, where I went with my parents, and the next with a large group of college friends back in 2010. We were 10 in the group and it was so much chaotic and fun!
This time around, the four of us packed our bags to go visit a friend, who’s currently studying in SCAD HK. This trip was filled with amazing experiences, including a highly exciting (but scary), non-documented trip to the hospital.
