Meet the Promdi.
JOJIE ALCANTARA is a Filipina writer, photographer and artist who leads a double life. One is a stay-at-home recluse of an insomniac artist. The other self is a solo traveler out to document unexplored parts of her beautiful islands. In between snippets of rest from a 24/7 duty, she blogs, surfs, watches horror movies at midnight, hosts TV specials, and continues to mourn her loss by wearing Michael Jackson shirts. How she juggles her time remains to be a mystery.
