Death is Just the Beginning

I have had this green t-shirt since I was in middle school I believe. It's surprising that it still fits me and it's still in... mint condition lol. Get it? Mint? Cause it's green?! Ok shoot me. :"D

Anyways, I think the meaning of words printed on the shirt is very deep and contemplational. Irrelevant with this whole look, but it's just nice to see people actually think when they see it. So then I worked my way to create this outfit from the tees down to the bottom, shoes, and accesories. I toned down the pop of green with dark brim hat and jeans, as well as the nude color of loafers. Tucked in and rolled up everything. Then I chose the US flag scarf just to complete this sort of cowboy-esque vibe going on. LOL parked my horse somewhere behind! :"D

Nineties Kid

As someone who was born and raised in the 90's, this look really screams my childhood. My mom literally bought me lots of denim vests, ankle-length pants, and converses. So I basically re-created those good 'ol memories with a touch of Rago's edge (#vom). I played around with classic dark color mixed with pops of blues here and there. 

I think I managed to capture the essence of nineties rebelliousness with the vest and shoes, yet still appropriate to be worn in my office with collared shirt and dressy pants.

50 Shades of Blue

Hi, Future Rago! This is the first outfit post after a hot minute! I have been on hiatus for the past couple of months from creating this kind of content. All I've been doing was just dance videos after dance videos, and sometimes just posting random single photographs on my Instagram. I was also pretty busy with work in between the transition. Yes, I resigned from my previous job and got another one after a couple of months vacationing. I'll make a separate post explaining about it.

For now, I came up with a super simple yet chic look for day-to-day office work (if you're in a semi-formal company, like startups or agencies) that allows you to dress casually but still look put together. Any kind of short-sleeved shirt has been my go-to piece to start assembling an entire look. So I paired this washed denim one with blue chinos and sneakers. Oh, I also happened to binge shop eleven pairs of sun/glasses at a flea market. One of them is these ones I wore. Anticipate more pairs coming soon.

Missy Elliott - Pep Rally


Definitely not my style, not enjoying the choreo, not loving the song, just an a-okay dance experience. You know, it's one of those times where you just don't feel the vibe. But I still managed to push through and put out a video out of it. Hope I won't regret the decision to upload this in the future LOL.

Ariana Grande - Side To Side (ft. Nicki Minaj)

I have been obsessed with this song until finally I got over it, got tired of it, and then hated it LOL. About time to finally dance to it and the choreo is by a choreographer named Eduardo. The movements are right up my alley but it's kinda different than the other teachers, but I gotta make it work somehow.

Beyoncé - Crazy In Love

Third time's a charm! I literally have danced to this song 3 times already and I still love it! The first one was using the slow contemporary remix version at UDW's Jazz Funk class, the second one was the live version at UDW's Bodylicious class but I didn't record it, and this is finally the original studio version. This song is such a classic, old-school bop! It makes you feel sexy and confident. Needless to say, no fucks were given that day. :"D

More K-POP up in this gig! WOOSAAH! I don't know why but I'm so excited to cover K-Pop songs especially with its ogirinal choreography. Mainly because it's always western hip hop usually being covered by us. This one is practically the third one so far and I'm gonna make sure it'll keep coming! *whistling*

SONNY - Tryna

Back again to United Dance Works for some Jazz Funk action with Arif Surahman. You know the drill, we had a good time dancing to this song by Sonny. I covered his Cha Cha song previously and I didn't realize that "Tryna" comes from the same singer. Anyways, this choreo by Arif is very vibrant and, according to him, combined by salsa a little bit. But I barely looked like I danced salsa due to the speed of this piece haha. It's still fun as per usual afterall!
