Robin Tomas

with his muse, Gerry.

Cafe Breton

Issa convinced me to use colour in my makeup for a change. Haven't done that in over a year. 
We changed our cover-ups cos it was getting warm but it started to rain when we got to Red's crib. Darno. 

Mall of Asia

One fun Saturday! Viewed Robin Tomas' collection at SMX (thanks, Cholo!) and headed to Cafe Breton for some grub. Chillaxed at Issa's place then walked to Red's for his little get-together. Ended up at Bureau. Will post the rest of the pics from the show soon. 

Congratulations, Ciege!


Last year, Issa and I got the chance to assist Ciege on his first show for Phil Fashion Week. Never realized how craaaaaazy it gets backstage til that day. 

Ciege also designed the costumes for a play I was in during my freshman year in college. We won best play and best costume design along with 7 other awards. 

Awesome collection again, Ciege!

Lady Luck

Lady Luck by Rizza Cabrera (Cabreezzah)

My sister made this song with the title as our possible group name. Song's not done yet and we're arranging the parts so we can make it into a duet with voicing and shiz. Haha. 

Not too sure about naming ourselves Lady Luck. Any suggestions, guys?

This is the voice that keeps you awake.

Top- Zara
Skirt- TS
Shoes- Aldo
earrings- Issa's

Really wanted to buy these babies online 3 months ago but decided to wait for them to reach the local branches. They came in one season late, but I think twas worth the wait. They look killer in person and even better under halogen/yellow lights.

My weapon of choice, most definitely. 

*note for mum:
Now you see the contents of that blue bag I was hiding from everyone. Sorry! Fell in love with them, they were talking to me, really! (shoes: "Buy meeee, buy meee! Be my mommy!)

Thanks to those who took time to e-mail me to tell me that my dumpsite blog's inspiring! I'm always happy to answer all of your questions, especially about Manila. I do try to balance out everything I post, won't deny that our country's still developing. But I assure you, it has its beautiful secrets as well.

Mess is best.

scans by knighttcat

So last Tuesday I got a message that classes were canceled- right before doing my homework/Freehand 2 plate for that day. The good student in me promised to get myself to do it after a quick nap. Promised to do my homework for the next day right after as well. 

After that nap I went on to watch my usual torrented flicks-- There Will Be Blood, A Small Affair plus I started with my House Season 4 DVDs. Finished halfway and even fell asleep in between 2 episodes because I was in the most bummy state. It was like Sunday, on a weekday.

What's wrong with me???

Manila architectural walk-through

Cultural Center of the Philippines
streets of Intramuros

Baclaran Church

Manila Cathedral

ye old Metropolitan Theater

I can see Makati.

Supreme Court

City Hall

We actually have to take photos of 30 different buildings around Manila and associate their structural components to the different periods in Architectural history. 

The weather  almost killed us, but thankfully we didn't have to commute. Not quite done with our list! Fifteen periods, two structures for each. 

Obviously the main reason why our professor's assigning this project to his HAA students every term is so that we're able to discover our own city. A lot of us have been in this city/country since forever but haven't really taken time to look into those buildings-- they just seem to disappear amidst the surroundings whenever pass by them on our way to school. If you look closely, the architecture's almost always impressive and you can sense the influence that a lot of nations have passed on to us during their their occupation/colonization. 

A big mash-up of things around the city but I think that's what we have to appreciate. I just wished we had the money to maintain these places. Not really fond of the idea of the whole place becoming a modern, concrete jungle in the future. It's nice to see something else whenever you go back home.
