Congratulations, you’re back!
Yes, and I’m a different Allona now. My music’s more into alternative rock na. Plus I now have a band. I do the vocals and rhythm guitars. Before kasi R&B or any material na ilalatag sa akin, okay na, go ako. But when I had my own band and started writing my own songs, that’s when I figured out what direction I wanted. Pag pinilit ako sa isang project na ayaw ko, parang, ang sakit, eh, ha ha.
Now that you’re a certified rock chick, do you regret having sung “Someone’s Always Saying Goodbye?”
No. That song made me Allona, eh. I even made a dance version of it. And now I’m thinking about making an alternative rock version. Lately kasi sa mga gigs, nire-request pa rin ng tao.
Romantiko ka man o sawi, walang pinipiling manonood ang '100 Tula Para Kay Stella'
Where to go if you hate people
This is your chance to get high
Admit it, you're both attracted and terrified of these women
Or how to actually be healthy and keep it that way
