Issey Miyake Pleats Please Potato Crisps Tote Bag
Speaking of bags, I love this oversized Issey Miyake Pleats Please tote! Soo cute!
(BTW, to my guardian angel in NYC, Mike D., when you have the time, will you please check how much those Marc by Marc balloon trousers are? I forgot to buy them in HK and I assume it's gonna be cheaper there in NYC…I couldn't find them online. :-( Whenever you can please, no rush…)

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!
My New Best Friends
Meet my new best friends. Hahaha!
I had the honor and pleasure of speaking to various Chinese magazine editors (YanBing Zeng who is Vogue China's chic Managing Editor, Cosmopolitan China's Fashion Editor – Abby Bi, Miriam Zhang of Oggi in Shanghai, Sunny Zhu, Editor of Para Life and the lovely and super friendly Mocca Ling, the Assistant Fashion Editor of In Style China who I bumped into at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in Landmark.

True Fashion Dedication
I visited the Marc Jacobs mainline store the other day to pick (as in BORROW ala Tinsley Mortimer) clothes to wear for the show. They arrived in my hotel room 30 minutes before call time packed neatly in a big white bag.
Just for fun, click click click for a wee bit of fashion drama! Be sure to read it. It's hilarious! I swear to god, I am SO gonna be nice to celebrities now because of this 'experience'. Haha!
For the love of Self-Timer
In the words of my favourite NYC gay, Soomy of Gayz of our Lives, the tranny box exploded and Mz. BB toyed around with his camera’s self-timer in his room at the Four Seasons Hong Kong.

For the love of Hong Kong
I had a LOVELY ladies lunch with my two new "lady" friends, Johannes and Kenneth at Yung Kee restaurant. Before I post pictures etc., let me show you this great picture.
Thank you SO much to the tall, skinny and black Birkin bag-totting Kenneth who took that wonderful photo of me. God I look so ferosh to the highest levels, no? What do you think?
God I love my job.
I know I have like 30 blog entries to post before I hit the sack but allow me to indulge in a moment of self-reflection.
God I love my job. I really do. I love, love, love, LOVE my blogging 'career'. Blogging opened a lot of doors and made a ton of my dreams possible. I'm not even gonna bother enumerating all of them because it's a long list. It's such a nice – no – GREAT – feeling to have the opportunity that I have and I consider myself truly, truly, TRULY tremendously blessed and I'm super grateful for everything that came my way.
Call me shallow if you must but I'm so happy right now. I'm currently here in Hong Kong, staying at a very fabulous hotel, meeting all these friendly and fantastic people (I got interviewed by 6 publications earlier), playing with luxurious clothes and beautiful accessories I could only dream of having (even if I don't get to keep them haha!!!!!!). Does it get better than this? I honestly cannot ask for anything more. (LIES HAHAHA). Just kidding.
No, seriously. I'm in cloud nine! Thank YOU so much for ALL the wonderful people in my life who make everything possible. You know who you are.
In any case, I really should do this more often, no?
(this is where YOU, my future corporate sponsors, will come in handy – I'm just a plane ride away… haha)
I love you all!
How does this make you feel?
Kindly ignore my rugby player hairy man legs kthxbye. More to follow…
Please Bear With Me.
Please bear with me over the next few days. The past 48 hours have been crazy. On the personal front, we brought my grandmother to the hospital yesterday afternoon. She's severely depressed and we just found out she's barely eating. They confined here and they're performing some tests. To my knowledge earlier this morning, the docs said she's 'fine' (so far) but now comes a call from her helper asking my dad to go there for a visit because she's 'not feeling good'. At 9:31PM. I dunno what is going on but I'm SO exhausted.
Meanwhile, I barely had sleep last night. I woke up at 1AM today… left the house at 7 to make the 8AM call time for my friend's look book. This was me earlier today at 8:30AM getting my hair done at the salon.
10 looks, head shots, fake eyelashes and 12 hours later… this was me about 45 minutes ago at 8:30PM at the back of my car on my way home. Click click click!
A few of you have been asking photos of me wearing the new Lanvin top I got so here are a few photos. They're actually a week and a half old and they were (spontaneously) taken at the last minute. I would've worn them with black boots/shoes of some sort instead of the gold but then again, I'm not really somebody who is a big fan of "head-to-toe everything must match" looks. Anyway, the gloves are these $10 tranny beauty pageant gloves I got from a sewing supply store and the bracelet is Valentino. The baggy trousers are old men's Gucci that I've had for ages. It's been sitting in my closet for years and I never had the chance to alter let alone wear them. Now that I've gained weight… well, whatevs.
I *love* the Lanvin tee! I really do. From the moment I saw it online I thought "it's soo me!" I'm sure you'll agree with me, yes? What do you think? Click click click!
