77 Kris Matanguihan - W@W Chat
Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013


about this episode: We sat down with Kris Matanguihan with his wife, Liza about their videography business.  His first love is actually photography, but then he worked in a photo & video studio where he started to dabble into editing, until he finally decided to go solo. He shared that his business started to pick-up when this McDonald’s wedding reception he covered has gone viral and got exposure on TV & newspaper. Listen to another supplier’s success story here in our podcast! :)


76 Ting Hun, Chinese Weddings & EDSA Shang - W@W Chat
Wednesday, August 21st, 2013


about this episode:  We chatted with Sophie (aka the new Mrs. Sophia Cocuaco-Barrido) of EDSA Shangri-La to know how Chinese weddings are planned at the hotel. Aside from being ESL’s Events Manager who handles all Chinese engagements (ting hun) and weddings, she’s also a bride who planned for her own wedding.  In fact, she was already on leave doing some-last minute errands for her wedding, yet she still managed to sit and chat with us about work. The girl deserves a raise! :D


75 Feng Shui, Ghost Month & Wedding Date Selection - W@W Chat
Thursday, August 8th, 2013


about this episode: The Ghost Month is upon us (it started yesterday actually). But what does that exactly mean? We invited Prof. Sherwin, a Pinoy feng shui consultant to chat with us about feng shui, the ghost month, and wedding date selection.  These used to be a purely Chinese beliefs/rituals but more and more Filipino couples/families/businesses are subscribing to these eastern ideas for an auspicious life.


74 Aisle 1401 - W@W Chat
Wednesday, July 24th, 2013


about this episode: Crazy guests make a crazy episode. This one’s our chat with the video team of Aisle 1401 made of newlyweds John + Anna (who previously guested in our W@Wies turned suppliers episode), Miko and Drei. Our favorite part is when Drei did his typical wedding spiel to wedding guest with his naturally conyo accent. Worth a listen! ;)


73 Uno Ritmo - W@W Chat
Wednesday, July 10th, 2013


about this episode: Welcome to our second musical episode. This time we feature the wedding band Uno Ritmo (One Rhythm).  The group is composed of Hans (vocals), Leo (percussion), Benjie (bass), Chris (lead), and Niño (keyboards). We chatted how the group was formed and their individual musical influences. Towards the end of the episode, they rendered a couple of songs with Hans on vocals.  They played two more that I (Abet) requested on the spot.  My first time to jam with them and though I forgot the lyrics on both times, it was a fun experience. :D

To go straight to the music, here’s the song list:

  • 0:50:37 Collide (Hans on vocals)
  • 1:03:51 The Man Who Can’t be Moved (Abet on vocals)
  • 1:05:24 The Hurt (Abet on vocals)
  • 1:08:36 Sailing  (Hans on vocals)
