A couple of weeks after our Southeast Asian Tour in August 2012, we decided to cool-off from months of promotion and gigs that burnt-out all of us. Personally, the only time I don't consider being in a band as work is when we are creating and recording new music. It never fails to excite me. Gigging on the other hand is different, sometimes tiring, sometimes disappointing. Being an indie band in the ever-changing music industry landscape is very challenging. So I took my leave and went on a five-month vacation in the US to rest and contemplate. I encouraged my band mates to focus on their work, family and other interests.

The challege of scheduling an outdoor pictorial is the hope for a favorable weather. Unfortunately, during our sailboat shoot at the Manila Yacht Club, it rained almost non-stop the whole day.
We neither have the time nor the luxury to re-schedule so together with the photographers and the production team, we tried our luck. It was nearing dusk when the heavy rain tamed into a drizzle. We were able to get some fairly decent shots. You can check them out at the photo section of our site.
Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of witnessing a very successful initial relief drive of DAKILA and Ride & Rock Relief for immediate support of families affected by the Habagat victims. They were able to send a total of 490 family packs of food and clothes and raised P45,000 in cash! The money will be spent on medicines and other necessities of affected families. The relief goods were delivered to the flood victims of the monsoon rains in Cainta, Angono and Marikina.
