Menswear on Hold

It's Christmas Day here in Manila and believe it or not, I've spent the entire night working on administrative tasks: answering emails, reworking on my site, wrapping up my year-end accounting, etc.

Some of you wanted to know whether or not I'm going to Milan and Paris for the upcoming fall/winter 2010-2011 menswear shows next month.

The answer, unfortunately, is no. Unless I win the lottery tomorrow or a miracle happens within the next two weeks, it's a "no can do" from my part. I can't afford it. I wanna save money for womenswear because it's much more exciting. I don't even know if I can do the trifecta (NY-Milan-Paris) like last season. I guess we'll see. 

Eiffel Tower Paris

Oh Paris, I miss you so much. I took this really awful shot of the Eiffel Tower after the AF Vandevorst show in October.

Meanwhile, I only opened 8 presents this year. I think it's my karma not to get a lot of material presents this Christmas Day. I mean hello… 2009 has been incredible to me. With all the amazing and mind-blowing experiences that I've had, every day felt like Christmas!

If you were to make me choose between getting 5 designer handbags (or designer something something) as presents OR experiencing everything that has happened to me the past 12 months, what do you think will I pick? Well, it's a no brainer innit? Bleugh.

A big thank you to all my readers, supporters and friends who truly made 2009 the most memorable year of my life…. so far! HAHA. ;)
