Late Post: Academy of Rock, Nixon, AKG

Another delayed post I know, but I have a valid reason...I don't have photos. :( Sadly, there are days wherein I tend to forget my camera or my battery dies even before I get to the event, so I just rely on my blogger friend's posts so I could grab. But not anymore, I promise! Thanks Ana and Paul for always saving my arse. Anyway, here are past events I went to...

Academy of Rock Launch 

 As an institution which strongly believes in holistic learning, Academy of Rock (AOR) provides a conducive environment for students to build and develop their character, inspire creativity and forge lasting relationships through the process of learning. 

In the 5 years that it has been in operation in Singapore, AOR’s successes and achievements have exceeded all expectations. In 2011, it was awarded the Promising SME 500 2012 from Small Medium Business Association (SMBA), Singapore. The Academy distinguishes itself from many other music institutions by ensuring that its teachers are internationally certified to conduct music lessons. It is part of AOR’s culture to expose students to a diverse range of musical experiences as such our students are given opportunities to perform at world-class art venues locally as well as abroad.

It also has its very own retail department with the AOR MUSIC STORE which will market its own AOR range of instruments. These range of instruments have been carefully selected to cater to the beginners and their quality in construction and finish will prove to be the instrument of choice for any new music prodigy.

Experience the joy of playing the music of today as well as strumming to the beats of the past, with a structured learning system that is systematic yet tailored to the individual. Be pampered with the choice to pursue your academic aspirations with the leading Rock Music Examination board in the world – Rockschool UK. And get inspired to showcase your talents on the stage or screen.

This 2012, it has been presented with an opportunity to stretch its arms beyond the shores of Singapore. AOR had the system, the strength and the network of support to share its expertise with the land of musical talents – the Philippines. It is with pride that the latest addition to the AOR family is presented - the Academy Of Rock Phils, Inc.  The successful launch last June 22 was capped with a show which featured Yeng Constantino and Sandwich.

Nixon Watches Launch at 7th High
Nixon is a Southern California watch brand that carries funky, stylish arm candies for everyone. Their watches are all about statement, style and individuality. I'm a sucker for watches. I always get drawn to minimalist/monochromatic time pieces (as you can see in my outfit photos, it's all black or all white). So I really had fun going around, looking at their vast collections.

(photos grabbed from WheninManila, Status and Ana) :)

Since I'm addicted to black watches... I chose this for the twitter contest!:)
Summary of my explanation: It's Unisex, like me! Lol!

Tequila for the toast!:)

Fun time with mah girlys! Ana, Bestie and Krissy:)

Bestie won the twitter contest! Yey!

Thanks Status for this photo! with Ana, Bestie, Krissy and Paul

You can buy Nixon watches from:
Segnatempo, Watch Republic, Billabong, and Aloha Boardsports.

 AKG Headphones launch
My gorgeous friend Marga (who I met at the Eastpak shoot last year) invited me to AKG's launch at Sm Megamall last month. I love Marga so of course I said yes! I didn't know what to expect so I brought along Ana, since she's also a music enthusiast like me. :) The place was packed when we got there and we were the only fashion bloggers there plus Jonver. But I love events like this because there's less pressure, I can wear flats (haha) and we get to meet other bloggers or people. :) Photos!

trying it on! i was told that this costs P26k!!!!

Mabida lang na una naglike si Papa V sa instagram photo ko. Lol

everyone took home a pair of earphones! Using this now and it's amaziiing.
