Random photos- April 2011

That mushroom & cheese crepe from BIZU (forgot to jot down the exact name) I had for lunch. It was damnnn good. Not filling enough though, so mum and I got a salad:

Oh, Brie.. How I love thee.

Pizza Margherita (Cafe Mediterranean)... This was what dad had and I ordered a salad with QUINOA... I am now looking for ways to include it in my meals since it tastes awesome (never liked rice but this one, I can totally learn to love!). Google its benefits!

Are You Listening? "Brighter Lights" concert + CD launch

June and Joe doing their Good Morning High Fives camwhorage poses

Pretty Rizza... (look at the next photo)

Monster-faced Riz

Joe's cool tatt by Ces Olondriz- I LOVE her blog! Esp because she photographs her textile designs and menswear stuff. You guys know any other local blogger/s who write about that? I don't browse through too many blogs unless someone recommends them to me or I find someone interesting. I like looking at menswear, tattoo art, architecture, textile, boring photos, photographs out of heavily processed film and creepie crawlies.

We were supposed to go up for the final song but ended up watching since I saw that they lacked microphones :)) I also wanted to listen/watch!

Riz LOVES giving people hugs. Even if she's fangirling before I take her photo with someone.

sidenote- i envy people with big, nice smiles!

It's funny how I NEVER end up needing the lyrics when I bring a copy with me. Okay, I sorta needed it during this performance but nobody noticed and it was Riz who forgot the words to the first stanza. (Whoops sorry to embarrass you, Rizzo!)

Okay, first photo of these two without them looking like a cutesy couple! Stressed, Pao? :))

Glad so many people watched!

My brother wanted photos with his "idol" kuyas :)

Thank you, MickeyDeeeez

The only pink thing I've ever placed in my bag- this retractable Kabuki brush from Make-up Designory at Serendra. Pretty cheap for a big brush, got it for only Php 500 and it's vegan! I use it for my face powder.

Some goodies given to me by Trilogy-- thank you!

Couldn't stop ranting (and reading similar rants on twitter) about how hot this city is getting so this BOY wore a DRESS. Heee...

While I was at Trilogy I managed to purchase new TOMS (stonewashed, red ones)and these new frames.
They are the lightest next to my Swissflex (which I love, but getting them fixed for the 3rd time is too expensive) and they're made of wood! Hopefully they won't weigh too much when I get em back from the optical shop with my graded lenses. Eeep.

I'm in Singapore now and the WiFi in our hotel room is pretty messed-up. Dad sorta used the LAN connection before the WiFi so now we can only use the LAN in our room. WiFi works everywhere else, though. Will be back in Manila by Monday with lots of school matters to face.

I will forever love the gym and infinity pool in this hotel!

Bloggers United: An Interactive Shopping Affair

Mark your calendars!

May 27, 2011 (Friday)
The Lounge (33rd floor), Malayan Plaza Hotel, Ortigas city

Manila's top fashion bloggers will come together in an event you wouldn't want to miss!

Entrance is Php 100, but you get Php 50 off if you bring some school supplies for the KIDS FOUNDATION...

I will be selling some brand new items, as well as pre-loved goodies from my closet. I'm sharing a booth with none other than Kryz Uy of Thirstythought! Riz and I are performing during this event, too!

The Bloggers United is a team dedicated to delivering breakthroughs in the metro’s blogging community. We are in an effort to pool bloggers and really turn it into a “community”.

We recognize the bloggers’ massive power to inspire, and influence the public on how they think, behave and spend. But more than that, we want to use that power in order to make an action in spreading social awareness and issues to our fellowmen.

Bloggers United team is founded by:
Melai Entuna - (Style and Soul)
Ana Gonzales - (The Fashionista Commuter)
Aisa Ipac - (Drowning Equilibriums)

The team brings you the 1st-ever Bloggers Bazaar featuring Manila's top and most influential fashion bloggers selling their personal closet items and selected pieces from their respective brands. Our aim is to create a venue where inspiring bloggers and their readers can personally come together and interact with each other. It will also serve as a networking site as we invite bloggers and readers from different categories and a couple of friends from the press and media.

The most important part of this event is that, it is a tie-up project with KIDS FOUNDATION and certain sponsorship proceeds will be donated to charity.

We're always at 2nd's on Sundays since we have church service there. We often end up having dinner there since the food's goooooood. When my friends want to meet up on weekdays and we have nowhere else to go, we end up here as well. The drinks are sorta pricey but they're the best!

I always order the Caprese Tower.

Riz got the lechon kawali

They have specials that you can't find on the menu so it's best to ask the waiter about it. Last Sunday they had this burger with eggs benedict and spam in it.

And this is officially the most sinful dessert. I love ittttt.

Tin Iglesias of Fashion Ate The World

I was invited to watch the fashion gala by DLS-CSB's FDM batch 2011 last April 13 (Wednesday) at A.Venue. Each student presented 5 looks. I obviously can't post all of those here on the blog... sorry!

Got invited a week before the event but I wasn't so sure if I could make it because of my schedule. Thank you so much to Jen Nguyen who entertained my LATE reply (messaged her a day before the show!). They gave me a front-row view alongside other bloggers. Saw Tin when I arrived and was relieved that I knew the others who were supposed to be with me (Kooki and Laureen weren't able to attend).

I don't usually go to events nowadays unless my close friends are involved. Saw a couple of my old classmates during the show, as well as other schoolmates from Benilde. I miss the SDA building! Wish they offered Interior Design majors in SDA for my batch...

It was nice seeing so many unique pieces from familiar faces. Benilde is seriously making their fashion course more intensive each year.
