The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk & Coffee

Milk and Coffee Adventures

This is actually a dream come true!

Last July, I opened a new domain on wordpress to give space to my much awaiting comics, which is The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. It’s a bunch of Filipino (Tagalog) comic strips that focuses on the friendship of the characters Milk and Coffee and friends.

The story line came out of no where, when I kept on wearing my weird shades and I started drawing my mini me. That’s explain why ‘Coffee’ had this bug-eye/heart-shaped shades. While the other characters are based on people I encounter and some friends.

The comics is in Tagalog, so sorry for the English-speaking fellas who are following me. It’s actually a risk because I don’t have an idea how it will go since I’m never familiar with the local SEO and how the new site’s Google ranking will climb up. Plus the fact that it’ll be composed of mostly images, I think it will be a great challenge for me.

But anyway, to my Filipino friends here, please support The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. I’d appreciate it if you will follow and like our posts both on blogs and Facebook.

Just kindly go to these link and hit like:

Thank you so much!

This blog will never close, by the way. I have plenty of poems to share to you, so please, please stay tuned!


My Hair — Bleaching

Some people think of my hair as an evolving pokemon since it changes, if not most of the time, monthly — every time I go to the salon. Personally, though, I call it the evolution of my boredom + artistry.

Ejomlexus Hair

You’ve seen my hair straight, with patterns, almost shaved, in different style and color; but right now I did the thing that I haven’t tried before: bleaching.

It wasn’t my plan, really. It’s just that a friend has convinced me to do it for some reason. But I eventually liked it as it transform to my target and that is to have a Storm (X-men)-like white hair.

Bleaching was tough and maintenance is kind of expensive. It takes 30 to 45 minutes to get result per session and you need up to 4-5 sessions to get a very light result, depending on the strength of your hair.

When I finally couldn’t afford to whiten my hair with the use of bleach, and I also feared that I might kill my strands by over using it, I had already needed the touch of the experts from Bench Fix Salon at SM San Lazaro. (Look for Arnold Macapagal, if you want to have a style like the one below)

Few things I’ve discovered:

– Bleached or blonde hair turns green when you wet your hair in the swimming pool. It can be restored, though, by putting tomato paste all over your hair and leaving it for 30 minutes.

– Bleach or color in Filipino’s hair fades easily, so you need a shampoo that can keep the color for long.

– Wait at least 2 months before you re-color it, so it won’t damage your scalp.



Hair Tattoo: Larger Design

I had a need to change my hairstyle every time I visit my favourite salon, Bench Fix Salon – SM San Lazaro, in a monthly basis. I always want to look weird unique once I step out of that salon.

This time I’ve got a style with different and much beautiful patterns. Check it out!


I could say that this is the most beautiful haircut I’ve ever had in my life. Never did I dare myself to get a costly and very radical haircut that might end up giving me forever damage to my hair, but thank God I’ve got a great hairstylist and he really took care of my crown.

The process was a cutting and curving was a little bit slow. It took us almost an hour to perfect the shape, that’s why you’ll see marker traces in one of my pictures above. To tell you honestly, though, the whole thing is not original. This was inspired to the picture I searched on Facebook a month ago. My hairstylist just gave it a new twist, making it fit for the size my head and previous style of my hair.

To get this hairstyle, look for Arnold Macapagal at SM San Lazaro, Bench Fix Salon.


Tribal Hair Design

I get easily bored with my hairstyle these days, and my key to relieve myself from monthly stress is to get a new haircut. Therefore, after a month of having a new hairstyle, I have done something a kind of new to my hair.

Tada! See those patterns? It’s only one-sided and they call it ‘Tribal Design’, but I guess for some people they call it hair tattoo. Arnold of Bench Fix Salon, SM San Lazaro did this to me. He said he could have used more patterns if only I have something in mind, but since I requested for simpler design he just do some carvings on one side of my hair. It’s so perfect for me, though.

Well, he used a powerful razor for it and Arnold was really fast. I’m thinking if I’m going to have more fabulous design next month. I found a new in YouTube how to do this stuff and I already asked Arnold to prepare for himself.


My K-Pop Hairstyle

I went to Manila just to get my hair done. I’ve been longing for the Fix Salon in SM San Lazaro simply because I’m not satisfied with the services of the cheap salons in Antipolo. Salons in Antipolo are only after for more income, and not with customer satisfaction. They are always in a hurry when they style my hair, perhaps cutters have quotas or they are just hyper to grab all the customers in the area.

Meanwhile, in Fix Salon, I was happy to see my same old stylist – Arnold, Marvin – plus, they’ve got new staff like Ferdie, who recently did a great job for giving me a makeover. Haircut price is still at Php185.00.

To be honest, I noticed the stress in my face. I needed a haircut not just to attract people in my new office, but also to give myself a fresh look. And since the brush-up hairdo didn’t work for me, they gave me a K-pop hairstyle.

I love the result. Adding a blade cut in my right eyebrow gives me a bad boy look and emphasize to my style and advantage for my everyday wear.

Check-out where he copied this…

Way to similar, right?

Anyways, if you want to try this salon, just drop by at the ground floor of SM San Lazaro – right inside the Super Bench boutique.


My Top 5 Lady Gaga Hairstyles

Unfortunately, men can’t wear hair extensions nevertheless if it is a work requirement, or let’s say necessary. But Gaga, given the fact that she’s a woman, I think she’s the most authorized artist in the world to wear all kinds of wigs, extension and any kinds of hair accessories. No wonder why she’s one of the leading fashion icons in the music industry these days.

Many got inspired, of course. You know, lot’s people have now started wearing unusual hair colors and abstract hair styles. But still no one can beat Mother Monster when it comes to unique cuts and trims.

So what are the top 5 Lady Gaga hair style for me?
