A sweet, outgoing, fun-loving travel blogger Shugah Pauline Gonzales who always gives the best travel tips, quirks, and stunning photos in her blog Wandershugah. For everyone dear to her, she always gives the best laugh, food trip, and spontaneous fun and travel. Everything is very light. For her, life is a big playground and we must face the world with light and love. That is how her friends knew Shugah.
Last August, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cervical Cancer. She experienced severe abdominal, pelvic and back pain and very heavy irregular bleeding. Four months after, she passed away last December 3 at the age of 23.
There will be a fundraising gig for Shugah curated by blogger, and former Itchyworms social media manager Christian Melanie Lee on December 14. 8 pm at Route 196, Katipunan, Quezon City. Eight talented local bands and performers will give tribute to the wonderful life of Shugah such as The 28th, Unmute, Calein, Krystle, Sam Gaytano, The Metro Fantastic, Martti Franca and Wanderband Manila semifinalist Ysanygo.
