Blog Interview: Tricia Gosingtian of Tricia Will Go Places


1) How did you get into blogging and why?

I've been rather active on the Internet for years now, but mostly as a photographer who would post work on deviantART. Occasionally, I'd blog there, but there was a time in my life when I realized I wanted to separate sharing my life from sharing my work.

Tricia Will Go Places started while I was contributing street snaps for Inquirer 2bu back in college. Some people I shot weren’t able to check the paper out so I decided to upload them on cyberspace. That went on for a short while before I started posting my own outfit posts as well, and the rest is history.

2) What's your strategy with your blog in general?

I'm proud that I produce most, if not all, of the photography in my blog. Since I'm a photographer, more than a blogger, I get rather obsessive-compulsive with photography quality. I also never blog about products or brands that I do not personally believe in.

3) Name some of the bloggers you look up to and why?

Rumi Neely, for the eye candy that is Fashion Toast. Tsubasa Masuwaka (her blog is on because I'm such a fan of her modeling and beauty products. Locally, I love Love Chic by Seph Cham and Shai Lagarde because they're incredibly unique and it's rare to see a good couple fashion blog.

4) Can you tell us about some of the people you've met while working on your blog?

Just visit my blog ;) (shameless plugging)

5) If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?

Choose the right platform, pick the right blog layout, keep in mind the quality of your content, and be consistent with your brand or identity as a blogger.

6) Where do you see yourself blogging wise in the next 6 months and 5 years down the road?

6 months from now I'll probably still be blogging about more or less the same things. 5 years from now I don't know if I'd still be blogging by then but I hope so! I'll always make time for photography so it'd be a little impossible for me to quit what I started.

7) One word that best describes your blog?


8) A message to The Purple Centipede?

Thank you so much for contacting me! Keep up the good work. ;)

It Isn't Friday Yet, Why Is It Fun Fun Fun Already?

I woke up late, checked my social networking sites then had to wait for my best friend to go online and talk on Skype. That pretty much sums up my day.


Crazy photo huh? Lol, we always have fun whenever we talk. Well today was supposed to be an ordinary day except when I checked my gmail account. Saw replies from the people I emailed! One of them is none other than Saab Magalona! She's part of the surprise for my bloggaversary by the way.


So you better keep in touch! Oh by the way, a giveaway might be just around the corner! :P

Four Days Ago

Oh how I have neglected my blog for four days and I'm really sorry! But I promise to make up for it though. Plus, I have a really good excuse! I can't blog about it yet but I tell you, it's a good one. Okay then, I can't keep secrets when I'm this stoked! Well since my baby's turning it's one year, I came up with a lot of stuff. Let's keep it a secret for now but it really is spine-tingling so you better watch out for it or it's your loss. Okay, maybe it isn't but you'll be missing out on a lot! So do keep in touch.

Junethea Crystal Centeno, You're An Inspiration


Who is she? An entertainer? A public figure? A daughter of a famous person? No. No. No. She was just Junethea Crystal Centeno, your average young woman who liked to blog. Yes, she wrote about the simplest things on her blog, but she inspired a lot of people.

If not for a friend on Facebook, I would not know about her until now. I feel awful that I had not met her or had just followed her on Tumblr. I consider the people who knew her when she was still here lucky. I don't know her personally but based on the people leaving messages on her page, indeed she was a great loss. I have just seen her page today but she has given me a huge impact already. What more with the people in her life before the tragedy?

I have been staring at her Tumblr page since this morning because I couldn't believe that someone so young can be this inspirational. She was a daughter, a sister, a girl friend but most of all, a friend to everyone. She was taken away because I believe the Almighty One has greater plans for her.

Rest In Paradise, Junethea Crystal Centeno.

Played this on repeat while writing this.

I'd Brush My Teeth For An Hour

I don't know if it's a joke but if it's real, I wouldn't think twice buying that toothbrush! LOL. At least I can say that I put Justin Bieber in my mouth. K, that sounded wrong!


29 frigging days until I see Justin Bieber! /really excited

Song of The Day: Back Of The Garden

O'Death - Back Of The Garden by cityslang

I would definitely listen to this on a Friday night. I like these kind of songs and I hope you check it out too!

Happy Birthday, Grace Foo!


It's been exactly 1 year and 9 months since I last saw this girl. Although we talk on Skype almost every day, I just can't get enough of her!

I Have A New Crush

Thanks to my best friend for showing me this video! LOL I am a huuuuuuuuge Justin Bieber fan so this means a lot! Hahahaha, I can't stop looking at her/him.

On a totally RELATED note, 31 days before I see Justin Bieber live in Manila! I'm so excited, I hope I get to meet him!

Song of The Day: Jar Of Hearts

Got the idea of song of the day from Saab Magalona.

I like the song so much but I thought the MV was a little funny. Hehe

Friday or Die

Hahahahaha! If you haven't seen the music video, you're missing on a lot of crap so I suggest that you don't. But if you really want to, here it is. I've never seen a music video that has more dislikes than it's likes! And oh, please don't compare him to Justin Bieber. It's just wrong.
