Singapore Straits Times
Singapore's largest newspaper, the Singapore Straits Times, published a 'what's in your bag' feature on me last week. They took this shot back in April.
Thank you so much for the kind words and for the lovely feature!
I love Singapore, I miss Singapore and I hope to be in Singapore again soon.
Style.com's Greatest Fashion Blogging Moments
Style.com, the grand-daddy of all fashion websites, just published a
"Great Moments in Fashion Blogging History" list.
I must admit that personally, I feel like it's rather premature to do a 'blogging moments' retrospective considering bloggers have only been inducted to the big fashion machine a few seasons ago. It's like Justin Bieber releasing a 'Greatest Hits' album. We still have a long way to go. Every day is a new day… there's so many new things to learn, so many new events to experience to further hone our craft.
Nevertheless, it's an honor to be recognized, so thank you Style.com.
It's also very nice to see talented people who I consider friends make the cut.
I'll never forget that moment at the Boom Boom Room, I mean, Top of the Standard whatever the current name is. Marc Jacobs and I exchanged hugs and kisses, then pointed to all the photographers in front of us and told me "Welcome to New York!" Surreal. Absolutely surreal.
And that photo of Tinsley Mortimer kissing James Kurisunkal? Pure gold.
Click HERE to read the feature.
On that note, I hope to make more amazing moments and milestones in the future.
And of course, I hope to get to share them to you my beloved readers.
self service 32: malgosia & carmen kass
Remember that polaroid shoot I did in Paris last October? The same shoot with the electrifying Giovanna Battaglia? Well, the latest issue of self service is out. Malgosia Bela and Carmen Kass are both on the cover.
Looks like I’m gonna troll the internet to see if I can buy this issue online because it’s not available in the Philippines. Boo.
The $64 million question is, do you guys think me and the amazing Tommy Ton (Jak and Jil) would make a great sticky rice gaysian power couple? Hahaha ;-)
Lastly, self service magazine just launched their new blog. Visit http://selfservicemagazine.com/blog/.
Vogue Portugal February 2010
Another day, another Vogue. What a delightful surprise!
There's an article about fashion blogs on the February 2010 issue of Vogue Portugal and yours truly got mentioned in the article and their favourite blogs list.
Demi Moore is on the cover.
If you are able to read Portuguese, click HERE (part 1) and HERE (part 2) to read the article.
Big hugs to my reader Joao in Portugal who sent me the scans and thank you so much Vogue Portugal for the shout out!
In Style Magazine UK
If you live in the UK, be sure to pick up a copy of the February 2010 issue of British In Style magazine. Me, my favourite gurls Julia Frakes and Tavi, and of course, Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, are there. I remember doing this interview when I went to NYC last October after the European shows.
Thank you so much In Style UK for the lovely mention, especially considering I’m the oldest of the bunch and no longer a teen. Haha! ;)

The lovely folks over at Vogue Nippon recently published an interview I did awhile back. If you are able to read Japanese, be sure to visit their website for a 2-part interview (part 1 – here and part 2 – here).
Thank you so much Vogue Japan. You guys rock!

Have you seen the February issue of Fashion magazine Canada? This nugget brought a smile to my face because I don't really consider myself as an IT person… but hey, I'll take the compliment, thank you very much. LOL.
I'm chuckling because I always get flashbacks every time I come across the term "IT".
My first exposure to the big, wonderful world of IT people was back in the dark ages when I used to buy all those British magazines. There was this woman called Tara Palmer-Tompkinson who was nicknamed, duh, "TPT". I'll never forget that photo of her in a bikini and some snorkeling gear…. and a big fur coat to top it all off. She was photographed EVERYWHERE. I was like who is she? What is her purpose in life? Why is she in all of these magazines? TPT aside, there's also that blonde Lady what's her face, oh yes, Lady Victoria Hervey. Hysterical.
It's always nice that my Paris crew, my gurls Charles, Sonny and Jean-Paul, are getting attention. I miss you ladies!
And yes, we need an ad campaign. The four of us. Diversity represent.
Thank you so much Fashion magazine. You guys rock!

New York Times
Holy Manolo batman!
Four years ago I was just one of your usual "dear diary" sort of blogger who sometimes like to put on blond wigs and Jimmy Choos to go to the mall with a wheelchair I got from a garage sale for kicks and giggles.
And now, I'm on the Gray Lady's home page. Visit http://www.nytimes.com while it's still there.
Eerie. I'm having goosebumps.
They have an interesting story about fashion bloggers as part of their "The Year in Style" coverage.
If you live in NYC, be sure to buy a copy of this Sunday's paper.

Thank you so much to Elle Magazine Poland for the wonderful mention.
I'm not exactly sure how the number "20" got there but hey, who am I to complain? Thanks for making me younger! LOL
Any generous Polish souls out there who is willing to pop a copy of the issue to me by post?
