ABOUT ME

Hi I’m Shai and here are 12 random stuff about me (please don’t get bored!)

1. I’m Shai Habon (sometimes, Shy Habon), born on June 10, 1990, from Marikina City, Philippines. I’m a certified Marikeña and I love everything about the city. My best childhood memories will always be full of short park trips and simple Jollibee outings.

2. I am an Ateneo Tulong Dunong scholar and I will always be a proud TD KID. Click the button on the right portion of this page to check how you can help and sponsor scholars.

3. I’ve been to a lot of schools (because I’m a sucker for homeworks, hihi). I studied high school in St. Scho Marikina. I graduated Cum Laude, with a Bachelors Degree in Communication (Miriam College). I also took up Marketing Management at De La Salle College of St Benilde. Recently, I just finished my SoFA fashion styling course. I am also currently taking up my Masters Degree in Communication at the Ateneo De Manila University.

4. I am a #ladyboss for 6 years. I own an online store which I call Shy Shop (I literally can’t think of any better name, haha!) and last 2015, I’ve started collaborating with other online brands by forming concept stores/showrooms. At present, Shy Shop is part of 11 physical retail stores all around the metro.

5. I am a super-chatty girl and I love lengthy, sometimes deep, conversations with random people. I’ve been invited to several speaking events and I enjoyed all of them (a lot!)

6. I’ve been writing poems and other literary works since grade school and Linggo ng Wika has been my favorite school season because I get to wear my favourite Filipiniana piece and write a lot about our language.

7. I love basketball, wrestling, UFC, boxing, cool cars and limited edition sneakers that sometimes, people think I’m a boy. Oh boy!

8. My fashion style is anything that’s girly yet simple. I have a huge thing for culottes and baby dresses (Hi Karly Kloss!) and pastel + black will always be my favourite color tones.

9. I am a fitness addict. I’ve tried boxing, swimming, cycling and other types of sports and I always love working out.

10. I am a Timezone pro and collecting tickets and prizes is my bizarre. Timezone should give me a trophy for this, haha!

11. I don’t watch TV a lot but my favorite shows are Masterchef (all seasons, all countries), WWE, NBA, PBA, America’s Next Top Model and anything that’s food related.

12. I’ve always wanted to have a blog but my schedule is always packed. I find it hard to squeeze in blogging especially during school. I used to micro-blog through my Instagram page but yeah, I decided to finally bring this passion to life so COME, WANDER WITH ME.

Mantra: YOLO!
