I just had to re-post it on this blog. Delicious! It killed me though! I'm still recovering from that amazing Marco Polo Buffet I had for lunch!

Missing LA Fashion.. not LA.

Is it me? or do other people also dress differently in different countries/cities/areas.
I always change up my wardrobe when I am in Cebu (more casual, girly) Manila (more dressy, daring)
LA (more hipster, hobo, retro) Hongkong (mixy-matchy, loose, flowy) SF (more urban, street)

Oh how I miss LA fashion: comfortable loose tees, boots, jackets etc..
I love LA fashion since it always looks "cool & effortless"

18 Again?

Last weekend, I was asked by Jun Escario to model his gown for the Seasons Debutante's Ball!
I was hesitant (only because it was a debutante's ball, and all the other girls were less than 18), but I agreed.

I had a fitting once and the dress was amazing! The beadwork was meticulous but very stunning! 

The day of the show: we did a run through at the Marco Polo Hotel and I was frightened to find out that we would be walking down the grand staircase ! YIKES !! I was already tempted to remove my 6-inch heels and walk barefoot ! But I didn't. Good thing my mother sent her 2-inch heels over and at first, I was still stumbling but I tried to pull myself together for the actual show!

I was sooooo nervous! I had images of me toppling down the stairs! 
....I must say, it was CHALLENGING but very successful! PHEW. Thank goodness nothing extreme happened.

Corinne Bailey Rae "Are You Here" live @ the Guardian

Current Addiction:

"Are you here" by CBR from her new album- the sea has been playing from dawn 'til dusk in my room.
It such a deep/meaningful song that I can't seem to get sick of.

Check out the vid I posted. Hope you love it as much as I do. This one's the live/radio station version.



I have been lagging, telling myself that I would start blogging as soon as my designs/clothes would be launched.
But.. I changed my mind.

I always loved writing, scribbling random thoughts/lyrics onto paper.

This is the time.
