I hit the courts with Queenie and Rumi the other day. It was my first time playing tennis. I have to say that I did pretty well, considering I wore 3 inch Marc by Marc Jacobs wedge sneakers on the court. Mama Anna Wintour is probably beaming with pride and delight right now…
Unless you count swimming in hotel pools or online shopping marathons, I’m not big on sports. I really should be more active at my age. Handling racquets and chasing balls is my idea of a perfect Sunday activity. Why not?

I ended New York Fashion Week on a high note. At the Calvin Klein Collection dinner held at the new Beatrice Inn, I had the pleasure of meeting three wonderful sportsmen of the moment: the very handsome Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Conor Dwyer, superstar New York Knicks basketball player Amar’e Stoudemire and the Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist.
Remember LeBron James? The famous basketball star who was the subject of American Vogue’s controversial (with Gisele) cover? Check out a video with his shoe closet in the background. Amazing, his shoe display.
I’ve always wanted to be part of a sports team. Back in high school, I’ve always tried out at the beginning of the school year to be part of either the softball or volleyball varsity teams. Unfortunately, all the nasty queens vetoed me out year after year. Whatevs. Wind the clocks forward and look where I’m at. I’m not bitter. There’s a time and place for everything in life. Say hello to the newest addition to the Harvard Water Polo team!
Excuse my mess. I’ve just moved in to my new pad. Click click click! CONTINUE READING
As promised, here are some pictures I took on the final day of the Formula 1 Shanghai race. It was spectacular! I’ve also thrown in some photos during the Pit Lane Walkabout. Klaus, one of GQ Germany’s editors, told me that Paddock Club access is the F1 equivalent to sitting front row at the shows. I’m really glad I went to F1. Look at me — I’m turning into a sports fanatic! I told my bf the other day that it’s important to spread out to things other than fashion as well.

Watching the Formula One race in Shanghai has got to be one of the most surreal experiences I’ve had. Ever. It really played with my senses — sight and especially sound. Here are some of the videos I took from yesterday.
Two nights ago, I was presented with two Sunday options: Shanghai shopping tour or go to the last day of the Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix. A few people opted for Formula 1 so, in order not to be left out, I ended up choosing it. Fast forward to this morning, I was *this* close to bailing out attending Formula 1 (Me? Sport? Come on…) and then I thought, I probably won’t have this opportunity in my life so why not go and test it out? Again, I live my life with the mantra ‘when was the last time you did something for the first time?’
I went, I saw and boy, I had lots of fun.
It turns out, my (complimentary) Formula 1 Paddock Club access pass is worth 2,700 euros — just for today. Can you imagine how many shoes you can buy with that money? After spending the entire day at the races, I can understand why sporting events have lots and lots of fans willing to shell out tons of money. What I experienced was BEYOND amazing!
Oh dear. Here we go again. I’m gonna get myself some popcorn, sit back and watch Filipinos retaliate in droves. Radio comedian Adam Carolla is under fire for making these comments about boxer Manny Pacquiao.
Some of Adam Carolla’s choice comments:
Here’s how you know when your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: When everything is about Manny Pacquiao.
All you fucking got is just an illiterate guy who happens to smash other guys in the head better than other people? And that’s all you have as Philippines? Oh they are so proud of their native son. He’s gonna run for congress in the Philippines.
It’s fine to be proud of your countrymen and that’s it? That’s all you got?
I thought the whole thing is hilarious if you ask me. Some of the things he said are utterly, utterly crap while some do have home truths to it.
What do you think? Is he really, genuinely racist?
Congratulations all around! Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao knocked out Ricky Hatton on the second round. Here’s a video from YouTube.
I initially had doubts Manny would win because Ricky seemed to be a strong fighter. I guess I was proven wrong and most of the crap I’ve read and seen online about Hatton, especially from the press, are nothing but good ol’ British hype.
Though I must admit, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this one, I was curious (just curious, nothing wrong with that) to see how my fellow countrymen would react if Manny lost a fight. Every opportunistic mother fucker is kissing his ass here in the Flips where he is virtually treated as the national hero, a god. I think it’s laughable that at one point he even tried to run for local politics… but I’m not gonna get into that. He worked very hard for his recognition, as a boxer and as a sportsman.
Anyway, click click click for pictures of this great (albeit short) six-minute fight. Even Mariah Carey and P. Diddy was there!!!! LOL
