Things to Catch Up On this Summer





There's just something about summer that makes even the hardest working gal want to kick back and relax for a bit. Whether it's the long summer days, ample vacation time, or drowsy heat, the season feels like the perfect time to laze around. Before the warm months draw to a close and the rains come in, make sure you maximize that downtime by catching up on all your favorite things. Here's a short list of activities that'll make your vacation absolutely worth it.



Your Sleep





The humdrum of the work week can mean long hours spent at the office, and the traffic in the Metro definitely doesn't help. A study from the American Psychological Association revealed that millennials are the most stressed-out generation, much of which is attributed to lack of sleep. Take the time to catch up on your sleep debt this summer, and you'll find that you'll be more than ready to take the rest of the year on.

Your Favorite Shows


Another thing you can spend time on this summer is catching up on all of the series that you've missed over the year. The summer months are the best time of the year to catch up on shows or try new ones that you haven't yet. After all, there's nothing better than waking up in the morning and getting ready for a Netflix marathon. Block off a weekend for some binge-watching, and make sure you stay hydrated while you watch!

Your Bookshelf


According to Forbes, millennials are reading more than previous generations had at their age. It's a great time to be a book lover, with tons of different platforms that you can use for reading. Whether it's a physical book, a Kindle, or even just your smartphone, books are everywhere. Grab the next novel on your list and reduce your backlog with a nice read on the beach. There's definitely nothing better.

Your Favorite Blogs


It's hard to imagine what life would be like without the simple blog. These online journals on a ton of different topics make whiling away the time so much fun, and you can learn a few new things to boot. Revisit old favorites or check out new ones on your downtime this summer. Travel and lifestyle blog Daydreaming in Paradise has tons of helpful tips and tricks about traveling in or out of the city, andn they tend to cover a variety of different topics too. They are especially useful if you are looking for great places to visit in the Philippines. 

Your Friends


Summer is the one time of the year when all your vacation times align, so why not make the most of it and hang out with your buddies? Whether it's your college friends or workmates, summer is the best time to go out and have an adventure together. It can be as simple as catch-up during dinner, or maybe that huge roadtrip you've been planning. Either way, there's no better season for it!

The summer months offer a great opportunity for Filipinos to give into the travel bug, and the temptation is especially sweet with airlines offering discounted fares for the time period. From the white sand beaches along the coast, to cooler climates abroad, there are tons of possibilities for your next big trip. If you need a little bit of a nudge in the right direction, check out this list of celebrities and their favorite vacation spots for some ideas.


Bea Alonzo



Bea Alonzo may be scaring moviegoers with her role in Mikhail Red's Eerie (2019)The actress is one of the most successful artists of her generation, with a career that made her a household name way back in the early 2000s. Bea's not one to rest on her laurels, but this hard worker needs a break every once in a while. She recently went on a trip to Coron, Palawan, where she enjoyed the crystal clear waters and tranquil beaches to her heart's content.


Heaven Peralejo



Heaven Peralejo has been with denim brand BNY Jeans for several years, and she takes her endorsements just as seriously as she does her television and film roles. While her whole family is healthy and happy now, Heaven recently took the opportunity to go on a trip to the Kansai area in Japan, where she enjoyed everything that Osaka and Kyoto had to offer.


Maine Mendoza


When Maine Mendoza burst onto the show biz scene a few years ago thanks to her viral videos and even more viral onscreen love team AlDub, everyone already knew she was special. With an authenticity that's hard to copy and a charm that you'll find nowhere else, Maine has weathered the fickle attentions of mainstream media and shown that she truly has star and staying power. The actress and entertainer is a jet-setter, and recently went on a trip to the Holy Land to see the historical and spiritual sights.

Angel Locsin


Angel Locsin has been pulling in rave reviews for her performance in The General's Daughter, but that's not the only thing she's had up her sleeve in the past few months.The actress has been traveling all around the country both for work and play, promoting the show at the Panagbenga Festival in March, and exploring parts unknown in the Philippines.

International DJ TOKiMONSTA Live in Manila!


Red Bull Music Academy alumna, TOKiMONSTA Jennifer Lee, returned to Manila for an intimate discussion at 20:20 Nightclub in Chino Roces, Makati City. The discussion was followed by a hotly energetic performance at the nearby XX XX. For Lee, it was a chance for her to sit down and share her insights with a handful of aspiring, young musicians and producers.

It’s cool! It’s crazy to think that I have any knowledge to impart to anyone else,” Lee shared. “If I share my experiences with you, then you guys can use that as a short-cut to evolve yourself more as human beings. In 2010, I got to sit in the audience and watch artists I respected speak to me. It helps fast-forward my perspective through their experiences. Now I get to sit up here and share with you guys, and hopefully, you guys will get to be up here and share with the next generation.”

A native of Los Angeles, California, Lee was raised as a classically trained pianist and would begin creating beats during her time in college. In 2010, she was invited to London for the Red Bull Music Academy. In the time since, Lee has released a string of successful albums under the name, TOKiMONSTA.

I think that when you make something personal as music, you’re not making it for other people,” Lee began.“You’re making the music as an expression of yourself and your own creativity. And it’s very vulnerable. You’re sharing some part of yourself that’s expressive. When you go to different countries and you see that people are resonating with your music, that means they resonate with a very deep side of you. I’m really humbled by it. And I get to see people also enjoy the music that I make and the shows that I perform. It’s a shared experience by all these different cultures. You start to see this commonality between everyone.”



The Creative Process

Lee discussed her creative process, which the artist admitted that the creation of any piece of music compels total vulnerability. “When you’re vulnerable, you’re trying to show a part of yourself that’s not inhibited. And in a lot of ways, we are all susceptible to trends and influences. It’s very risky to be vulnerable. It’s very risky to express yourself in a way that shows everyone something different. The vulnerability is very much hand-in-hand with being unique and having a unique sound.”

This allowed Lee to really share the inner workings of her creative process. 

“Focus is really a point of contention. The commonality is that creatives tend to be very unfocused people, you know? I can’t force myself to make music if I’m not in the mood to do it. None of the music that comes out will sound inspired. So I can take upwards of several weeks not making any music, but then once inspiration hits, I’ll lay down five tracks in a week. And once I start a song, it’s very easy for me to discover that I’m very motivated to finish. I’ll work for about eight hours straight. That’s just the way that I work, everyone is different. You can’t force the focus, I guess. You just have to be inspired!”

Becoming a Brand

While the creation of music is often the most attractive aspect of the job for many musicians, the process of putting their music out there can be very demanding.

“You have to learn to be comfortable with yourself, because what are you going to do with all this music if no one can hear it? It’s all relative”, said Lee. “Social media is a great avenue for self-promotion in a way that wasn’t available to people twenty years ago- it was all record labels. Now if you’re on SoundCloud and you’re making really good music, you can find avenues to share your music with other people.”

As far as Lee is concerned, surviving as a successful musician in the 21st century means becoming a lifestyle brand in-and-of-your own body of work. “Music has become a lifestyle brand. You as an artist aren’t just the music that you make. You’re your music, you’re your personality, taste in artwork, preferences, you share so much of yourself (on social media).”



Resiliency

Ultimately, as Lee revealed, the secret of every successful artist is resilience.

 Resilience is everything.
If you’re not resilient, every blow is going to hit you so much harder. A lot of it isn’t always awesome. The circumstances of our environment, the county that we live in, the people were around, it’s not always going to be great. At the same time, there are tons of things that are amazing. It’s not easy, but it’s finding that inner power in yourself – that confidence and that drive. But understand it’s okay to feel all these emotions. But you can’t hold on to them. You can’t sulk.”

As a female Asian-American artist in her genre, Lee’s career as TOKiMONSTA has been filled with a number of challenges, “The challenge has changed over the years. At the very beginning, I wasn’t very common. But my music was up to the standard of my male peers and all my male peers respected the music that I made. And even though I don’t set out to be an example, as an Asian female, I want to show that I’m making decisions. I want to be normal. I want to make music on the same level for everyone else.”



The biggest challenge for Lee, however, was returning to the stage after her battle with Moya Moya disease, a neurological disease that required Lee to undergo two surgeries that temporarily impaired her ability to communicate and make music.

“As time passed, the memory of how do things came back to me. So when I started going back out and playing shows, the most challenging part was the more emotional and mental part,” Lee shared. “I had isolated myself from everyone for two months. I had social anxiety. I couldn’t stay out for a long time.  I became very sensitive. To go from not seeing everyone for a while, to a very traumatic experience, to playing in front of 20,000 people at Coachella, it’s quite a big schism to cross.”


Performing Live

For Jennifer Lee, the process of creating a song isn’t just about capturing a single moment or an emotion. It’s about creating an experience, an adventure told through rushing bodies across the dancefloor.

“I do hope that whenever people listen and come to my shows, they understand my intentions for the experience. Not my intentions for them as individuals,” Lee began. “Again, there’s this sense of relating to each other, that we can understand the feeling and emotions in the music. What’s meant to be more sensitive or hyper, you can understand that those were the moods that I was in. I want the music to be cathartic for myself and I want to share it with you, in case that it might bring you some peace.”

Yet, despite all her success, Lee is aware that her music is not for everyone. And that’s something she has shown comfort in.

“I don’t want to force a feeling on anyone. Everyone is allowed to feel what they want to feel. If you don’t like it, cool,” said Lee. “When I perform, we’re going to have an experience together that are shared. At the end of the day, we’ll know that we went through a whole trip together and experience that together, whatever that feeling was. These are all unique experiences and there’s no way I’m going to recreate the experience that I’m going to have tonight.”

By combining her passion for creating musical experiences to her “never give up” attitude, Jennifer Lee/TOKiMONSTA has become one of the most widely respected acts in her genre. As an alumnus of the Red Bull Music Academy, Lee continues to travel all over the world to share her music and her knowledge with the next generation of producers.

“My number one advice for anyone is to be yourself. Be unique. Hear your own voice. Just be yourself. Don’t be like everyone else. Everyone else already exists. You want to set yourself apart. You want to be someone with some level of integrity.”
