Last March 2, I went to Le Baron Tokyo in Aoyama for the Join For A Night Of Pink Champagne Bubbles And Love party which was sponsored by Moet Chandon and Le Baron (of course!!!). It was a night of art, music and fashion combined in one event. There was a live painting show which was lead by Aya Takano (member of the Kaikai Kiki art company lead by world renowned superflat artist Takashi Murakami), a live performance from the all-girls band group Mushroom Hotel (キノコホテル) and amazing DJs spinning namely Tokyo Dandy, Misha Janette, XUXU and others.
I had a great time busting on the dance floor especially when Tokyo Dandy started their spin set. All sorts of pop music from Japanese, Korean and international industry but what made me really dance was when they played Kylie Minogue’s 80’s hit “I Should Be So Lucky”. Hahaha!!! I was waiting for XUXU and Misha’s turn on the DJ booth but I had plans the next day, thus, I had to leave the party a little too early.
Every time I go home to the Philippines, it’s always a part of my agenda to visit my Alma Mater, the University of Santo Tomas (UST) for a big dose of college nostalgia. I would always see my professors for some time and talk to them how my life has been since graduation, my former students who happen to go to the same university, my Teatro Tomasino family who made my college life more colorful and exciting and my former classmates who are now professors in UST. No one can deny the fact how much of a loyal and proud alumni I am. Graduating college is something you can be proud of, but, humility and modesty aside, graduating in one of the greatest schools in the Philippines (and probably in the world) adds to the glory of having a university diploma. Surrounded by overflowing history, culture, and greens (UST is definitely a good place in Manila to find trees in one area), it’s not that hard to follow the advice of Tokyo’s most leading fashion bloggers, Tokyo Dandy, whenever I am in UST- RELAX!

Usually, whenever people say the word “partying”, they would always think of the usual after-party scenes. Throwing up anywhere because of too much booze, getting one’s self to trouble, hooking up with a random stranger and all the same sorts. Well, what about the good girls? What happens to them after a night of few shots and a lot of dancing?
Their stomachs will grumble like hell in the middle of early morning and there’s nothing they can do but to give in to their tummy’s demand of food. They grab a bite in the nearest 24 hour restaurant, fast food or convenience store.And when they decided to eat in the middle of the streets, random strangers will just come and talk to them, as if those poeple have known them for quite some time.If they chose to wear high heels, good girls’ feet get too tired from all the dancing. So they take it off and walk themselves away barefooted without a care.And on their way home, like any party-goer, they also can’t help but sleep in the trains or whatever public transportation they use.It was my first time to go clubbing with my girls, Ena, Niki and Tina and we decided to spend it in Tokyo Dandy’s 3rd anniversary party in Club Africa in Daikanyama. Because I know these girls are meek as lambs, I decided not to go hardcore partying with them. Not too much drinks but of course, a lot of dancing and chit-chat with random strangers. It was a very mild kind of partying for me but I enjoyed it because I was in the company of very good friends. I could have pushed them to go wild but I felt like I was responsible for them if something wrong happens. A good friend doesn’t push his friends to fall in the cliff.
But mind you, I’m not a good girl. I’m absolutely not. Hahaha! I just chose to be responsible. *winks*
So take it from us, kiddos! You can party hard but party responsibly for less troubles.
