SIDE B: "DIY TAMBAY TIPS" by ELOISA JAYLONI AND CLARA BENIN

 

It is not that unusual to see Clara Benin and Eloisa Jayloni collab or to be on stage jamming for a song; Clara and Eloisa are two of those people who decided to follow the lane in pursuit of their passion for writing and singing their own music. We kind of admire them for their milestone in indie music scene. But this time will be one of those peculiar chances where Eloisa and Clara will jam not for the crowd that will cheer them as artists. This is where they need to pause and chill as we made them talk about how to be idle for a while, and gather their thoughts wherever spot they want to go.

Committing oneself for being a tambay may initiate a pessimistic view, but for Clara and Eloisa, it’s more of a blessing in disguise. We don’t need to nudge them countless times about their tambay stories. So, here’s what we got for you, from them.

TAMBAY STARTER PACK

For Clara and Eloisa, an ideal tambay starter pack will always include a pen, laptop, notebook, phone and earphones. A cup of coffee can add up for Clara’s tambay vibe, and making sure that you tuned-up your mind for a tambay mode can be another regime for Eloisa. Bringing a guitar for Eloisa may depend on what she really wants to do during her leisure time. Then it’s a thing for Clara to just write a song or poem when she’s on her tambay mode.

TAMBAY DIARY

According to Clara and Eloisa, tambay life will never be as de-stressing as it seems without something to treat as best buddy that can be their journal or outlet of thoughts. As we don’t usually know and ask, Clara Benin really loves to be alone very often and is comfortable with the presence of her notebook as an assemblage of all the words that come from her artistically gifted mind. For Eloisa Jayloni, she’s always unaware by the volume of words; as she writes everything when she really needs to release all the stuff from her creative thoughts.

“IT’S OKAY TO BE LAZY; AT LEAST YOU’RE NOT TIRED!”

A notebook where they can write their poems or songs, and merely everything they’re passionate about. Where they can find the freedom, whenever they’re too lazy to share or have everything to write about. Clara and Eloisa’s tambay diaries may be considered two of the most privileged things an artist possesses, right?

IDEAL IDLE LIFE

Of all the ideal methods to be productive, tambay is also a way to detoxify and boost yourself and that, for Clara and Eloisa, can also be productive. More about gaining something through idling? Staying at their favourite tambayan after a really long nap, getting their own space to write, relax and slow things down were the primary tambay goals as for Eloisa and Clara. Eloisa owes some of her songs during her tambay time, just as Clara had written Dust and Naked while she’s in her favorite tambayan.


As for Clara and Eloisa, tambay can also be beneficial and that being idle can never be this ideal when you’re not into the mood of doing it on purpose of knowing yourself more.

“Taking a break and dating yourself” is essential for Clara and Eloisa or anyone who needs to stay focused amidst the dynamic and exciting rhythm of life.

What’s their tambay etiquette? Respect. Because they both know that they‘re not the only person who needs to gather some lone time and calibrate.

And if ever they write a song about their tambay life, CHILL or RELAX can suit for Eloisa’s tambay mood while COFFEE would be perfect as for Clara.

For Eloisa, being idle can also be a good help for oneself to think about the things a person needs. It is also a reminder that everyone needs to slow down because no one was born to hasten everything. For Clara, to just be with herself, and have time to reflect and process everything can have an important impact for her.

ON TAMBAY ADVICE AND MOTTO

For Clara, “Rest”, because when you are on a tambay, it will not necessarily mean that you’re wasting your time; it can also be productive through granting yourself a break.

Then for Eloisa’s funny side, “It’s okay to be lazy; at least you’re not tired!” Because we all know that going through problems is a normal thing. But sometimes, never taking things too seriously may help to keep one’s peace of mind.

Whether we feel like we’re stuck or losing the grip to pause, life may be define the way we decide to live it. We can sometimes be like Clara and Eloisa who unveiled the other stanzas of how they jive into the beat of their lifestyle over their tambay life. For them, being tambay is okay as long as you’re meeting your priorities and above all, you enjoy what you want to experience in life.
