I am Nash, 25 years of age and counting. I am a pure - blooded Filipino. I was born and raised in the Philippines for 19 years and is now living in Canada. I am a College student wanting to pursue Communication Studies. My goal is to finish my degree and come home to The Philippines to live and work there for good. I am the vocalist of the band Headcakes, a local Filipino Variety band from Edmonton. I have been singing and performing all my life, but writing is my passion ever since I was little.
This is me and my everyday life as a struggling artist. Join me as I try to search for the true meaning of my existence.
The Edmonton Filipino Journal. ( @teeshajamie sent this photo in my inbox; never saw the paper, but i’m proud to say, finally Headcakes got into a paper!) #headcakes #edmonton #pinoy #band #music #bambooedmonton #edmontonfilipinojournal (Taken with Instagram)
I told myself I would blog constantly but I ended not having to because of my busy schedule. I literally had a busy 2011 and 2012- I went home, came back to Edmonton, worked 2 jobs, shifted from Arts to Health Care, had back to back gigs and events, spent Holidays in British Columbia, had road trips here and there. Simply put, I had a blast.
Yesterday I checked my desktop and saw all the pictures I had planned to post. There were tons of them! I had not uploaded any albums in my online account (only few pictures in Instagram and mobile uploads), and for more, no real blog posts in Tumblr! To me it looked devastating, and there’s a reason for that:
To tell you honestly, I am bad at remembering things. I don’t know the medical term for it because I have not been diagnosed or went to the doctor to have me examined. But I know for sure that it can’t be Alzheimer’s or Dementia; or maybe not, I really have no idea (but that should be in another blog post).
Anyway here are just some of the photos that are long overdue for posting. Too random, I know. I’m off to my friend’s wedding today so I’ll check up on you guys later :)
I haven’t been blogging a lot lately because of my busy schedule but when I do have time I always get excited coz I get to share my experiences with everyone here. As of the moment the band’s busy with gigs and events, specially Bamboo’s concert here in Edmonton this Friday. It is such a great honor to be a part of the show and I feel very very lucky to perform front act for Bamboo.
So to all of you guys here in Edmonton please come celebrate OPM with us and Bamboo at Rivercree Casino this Friday, August 3rd! Tickets are still up for grabs! See you there!
In the meantime here’s some kulitan portion with Headcakes. :)
