I am a big fan of Freeway’s National Artist Collector’s Series. It started out as an experiment in 2009 when the brand released apparel and other products inspired by and using the works of national artists Nick Joaquin (literature) and Ang Kiukok (visual arts). It proved to be successful that it became a biannual tradition honouring other legends such as F. Sionil Jose (literature), Levi Celerio (music), and Juan Luna (visual arts).

I remember being addicted to game apps such as Flappy Bird, Boom Dots, and Candy Crush (just like everyone) before.

My newest addiction is one called CC-Tan. It’s a shooting game wherein you are an elephant and you need to shoot all these various shapes approaching you. Each one has a corresponding number that represents how many times you need to shoot it. The goal is to not let any of the shapes get to you.

The handsome, talented, and charming Derrick Monasterio has appeared on the cover of Garage magazine a couple of times before, in February 2013 together with Benjamin Alves and Alden Richards, and then in June 2015 together with Albie Casino and Kit Thompson.

Now he’s on the cover of the same magazine again – but with no one else this time, just him. After being part of Cosmo Centerfolds last year and being chosen as one of the guys to be with Kelsey Merritt on the cover of Preview recently, bagging the lead role in the new series Hanggang Makita Kang Muli opposite Bea Binene, and releasing his first ever solo album, I think Derrick is more than ready to have his solo cover for Garage.
