Video Outtakes – Tank Magazine

Video Outtakes – Tank Magazine

Thank GOD for the weekend. I know I haven’t been posting a lot of updates as of late but I have so many things to do on my laundry list. It’s been crazy the past few weeks. Every day is a new day and 24 hours are SIMPLY. NOT. ENOUGH. Several insensitive readers even complained about the recent content of my site and how I should go back to “real” blogging. Whatever that is. Since when did blogging become a big fucking burden? An obligation? Although I completely understand where they are coming from, I, like everyone else, have my own set of P-R-I-O-R-I-T-I-E-S, a set of deadlines to beat. The problem with these people is that they expect far too much (which is already SO wrong) when, at the end of the day, they’re just spectators. I don’t even have time for a facial for goodness sake let alone sit here just to attempt to please everybody!

Enough whining. Here’s a super quick video of something I did for the next issue of Tank. Enjoy!

Tomorrow I’m doing L’Officiel. Which one… I guess I can’t tell.

And then I have my niece’s birthday to worry about.

God I need a vacation.

PS. I just read and re-read what I typed above and I apologize if I sound like a raging cunt. Don’t get me wrong. I *love* being busy. It’s all fun and good (while I’m still at my prime)… and I’m thankful for everything that is coming my way.

Rajo Laurel + Rajo Red Gala

07/09/2008, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Manila

Rajo Laurel

I had the opportunity to visit Filipino fashion designer Rajo Laurel’s beautiful office/atelier/showroom yesterday afternoon. Rajo is one of the Philippines’ most established designers. This man has dressed countless Filipino socialites, celebrities, etc… pretty much the who’s who of Manila.

One of the things I love most about my country is that you can practically visit any local designer and have something made (without buying off the rack) to your liking and your size. Think of it as having your own mini-”couture” experience (sketches, fittings and all) without the stratospheric price tags and thousands of hours of labour.

(btw the shirt is from Filippa K which I wore to go there…so ignore that. haha)

I wanted a few things made to match that sequined Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket I recently got. It’s funny how I’ve known him for a few years now and this is the first time he’s doing something for me. Here’s little video of Rajo in action. Ignore our voices please, especially mine. Baklang bakla talaga! LOL

Lunch at Yung Kee Restaurant, Hong Kong

02/09/2008, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, Travel

Yung Kee Restaurant, Hong Kong

What’s a trip overseas without making new gay friends? I love them gays! I really do. Most of my real-life friends (HUWATTT FRIENDS ?!?!?!) are often married geriatrics, and worse, married geriatrics WITH KIDS. Because of this, I sometimes forget that I’m a young gay person. HUWATTTT YOUNG GAY PERSON? Haha. JK.

ANYHOO. Johannes and Kenneth invited me for lunch at Yung Kee restaurant, famous (apparently) for its roasted goose. No we didn’t eat dog or baby pigeons, don’t be silly. Click click click!
