I KNEW IT!!!

I KNEW IT!!!

I KNEW IT! I KNEW there’s a mini-me floating around there somewhere. In a weird twist of fate, look who I bumped into yesterday afternoon. It’s my mini-me!

I have no idea who that is or whose child that was but how strange was that? It’s funny because when I was in the car to go to this event, my friend called me to ask what I was wearing so I told her I’m wearing camo. So is she! And now this… three is a trend indeed. Who knew my mini-me would wear camo too? Odd. Soo odd!

“Are we old?”

31/05/2008, Current Affairs

“Are we old?”

My plan for tonight (or should I say LAST NIGHT because it’s 4:40AM now) was rather simple. A nice dinner for three at my new favorite restaurant, Sala Bistro, followed by a trip to the cinema to watch Sex and the City. I really want to see that film in spite of all the negative reviews from people (no spoilers please!).

Embassy Club, The Fort, Manila

Well… one of my friends bailed at the last minute so me and my other buddy ended up doing a little hop and a skip around various places in this town they call Manila: Sala Bistro, M Cafe, Embassy, Embassy Members-Only (yep, they now have a members-only club which opened this Tuesday) and Cav. Hah!

Back to Black

28/05/2008, Current Affairs

Back to Black

When I went to the salon a few days ago, the first thing my stylist asked me was… “what color do you want to go for today?” Well, for the first time in what in years (I’m quite done with the light brown, medium brown, chestnut brown, lavender brown (WTF!), all these god damn browns, beiges etc.) I told her to bring me back to black.

Bryanboy, Mich Dulce

This was me last night after the shows (Philippine Fashion Week 2008) with my friend Mich who I haven’t seen since the Marc by Marc Jacobs party last month.

I have GREAT news! For those of you who are DYING to get hold of Sass & Bide’s Black Rats leggings, you may now pre-order them online at MyCatwalk in Australia. Tell them I sent you! I actually announced this to the Australian Vogue forum “voguettes” a week ago and they all placed their orders already! They’re AU$170 each and they ship to most countries in the world. Go go go, buy buy buy!

I am bored and I’m exhausted from being bored.

I am bored and I’m exhausted from being bored.

I’m utterly bored of the sameness and the banality that goes on around me. There’s something in the air and I can’t figure out what it is. Italian Glamour magazine recently interviewed me (Viva Italia again yeehaw! Milano, Roma, Firenze, Venezia and what the heck, Rimini… y’all keep an eye out for it!) and they asked me to describe my typical day. It was only until now that I realized shit, holy hermit batman, I really don’t have that much of a life. My life is as exciting as a bag of walnuts!

I’m stuck in a rut and I need to get out of it quick. It’s strange for me to say that now because IMO, things are going so well for me. I’m in no position to ask for more because I don’t know what (and there’s nothing really) to ask.

I think I know what I need.

I need to feel human again. I need to be inspired. I need to feel emotion that lingers for more than a few minutes (you won’t get that from Raf Simons footwear I’m telling you). I need to be happy. I need to be sad. I need to be angry. I need to be perked up. I need to go bat ape crazy and do cringe-worthy things I’ll regret in the future. I’m going through a stage where I’m simply indifferent to MY environment. I’m akin to an emotionless robot, pecking away on my keyboard all day long.

Let’s fold scarves!

Westin Hotel, Sydney

In sexy Sydney, I stayed at the Westin Hotel located at 1 Martin Place, CBD (Central Business District). I love the Westin! My Aussie home doesn’t get any more centrally located than this.

I’ve been getting emails from people where I got the gray trousers with the stripe on the side. They’re from Filipino designer John Herrera.

Sass & Bide Black Rats

Sass & Bide Black Rats

I took my Sass & Bide Black Rats out last night for yet another spin, this time in the third world. I look like a mess but whatevs. Those OVERSIZED menswear size small tops come in handy at times like
this. Thank god for ding a ling a ling ding dong coverage. I wore my
Black Rats with an old embroidered Alexander McQueen top. Oh how I wish I was 6-foot tall with super long and super thin legs. Sucks to be soo unlucky in the gene pool lottery.

Sass & Bide Black Rats

I’ve been getting a LOT of inquiries, both online and in real life. I’ll pop them a note and I’ll get back to y’all with detailed information as in when and where they’re going to be available, etc.
