Saab Magalona On The Job: Having The Best Of Not Just Both Worlds
A wise man once said, “Follow your passion and you will never have to work a day in your life.” While that speaks so much truth, it’s easier said than done because it can be difficult to figure out ways on how to mix your passion and talent into a job that fulfils you. Luckily, there are people to aspire to, who absolutely love what they do that it all comes naturally – just like Saab Magalona.
Saab is an indie-rock musician, blogger and an entrepreneur wrapped into a one amazing persona. She and her band Cheats usually have gigs in Saguijo in Makati, Route 196 in Katipunan and spends ample time at her own coffee shop Cup Fiction, along White Plains.
“Pasig is my neighbourhood. I like the whole of Metro Manila because this is where my family is. My family inspires me to do great in whatever I do,” Saab shares when asked about why Manila is the place to be. Saab draws her strength from her passion and the love of her family and fans.
“I’ve been writing for almost 14 years now but my journey blogging all started back in 2003 because frankly I didn’t have many friends to share my thoughts and feelings with. The blog grew quite a following through the years and now I feel like many of my loyal readers know me so well that I can’t suddenly pretend to be someone I’m not. My blog has kept me grounded and “real” all this time,” she continues to tell us as she rekindles the humble beginnings of her blog, SpellSaab.com
“I grew up immersed in music because of my dad’s gigs (Saab’s father is late Filipino rapper, Francis Magalona). I wanted to become a part of a band and found my true calling when I met my husband (Jim) and we started Cheats.”
Saab Magalona found her passion and true calling and turned it into a career that fuels her to keep going. How about you? What’s stopping you?
Cheats is launching their second album soon, follow them on Facebook for more updates and Saab will have a meet up with SpellSaab.com readers this September.
