Sing after me…

Mika and Bryanboy at Marc Jacobs Japan Independence Day party

Get yourself to the butterfly lounge, find yourself a big lady. Big boy, come around and there we're gonna do baby. No need to fantasize since the words are my praises, a watering hole with the girls around and curves in all the right places.

That's all.

Pardon. Je suis désolé.

Pardon. Je suis désolé.

Yes I know. I'm currently backblogged big-time. Excuse me as I play catch up. I dislike (hate is a very strong word) reminding people constantly that I'm ***still*** a solo act. You know, a one-man circus/independent operation. People often ask me if I have a manager or an assistant. Why? I don't know. Crazy. In any case, the answer, as some of you already know, is a big, fat NO.

Anyhoo, I'm enjoying a bit of me-me-me time so expect quite a number of blog entries from yours truly over the next few hours. 

Some are new, some are a few days (or perhaps a week or two) old but I'm glad to share bits and pieces of all the good — and horrible — memories I had recently.

Sit tight.

Herbivore Men in Japan

10/06/2009, OMGOMGOMG, Tokyo

Herbivore Men in Japan

Man I love Japan!!! Is this what they call them nancy boys with the effeminate touch? Herbivore men?

From CNN:

They are young, earn little and spend little, and take a keen interest in fashion and personal appearance — meet the “herbivore men” of Japan.

Typically, “herbivore men” are in their 20s and 30s, and believe that friendship without sex can exist between men and women, Fukasawa said.

Watch this video. First one to spot the Margiela t-shirt shall win a kiss from me on the cheek and an oreo cookie.

If these boys are ONLY interested in personal appearance and NOT interested in sex or money, what does that make me, someone who is interested in ALL three, you know, a sleazy internet perv who wants you to show da cashmoney to buy a boatload of bags and clothes and hats and shoes and gloves?

Just sayin’.

PS. I bet you most of those herbivorous men log on to Superfuture…

Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Spring/Summer 2009

Remember what I told the folks over at Dolce & Gabbana/Swide when they interviewed me last week how fashion magazines are the new coffee table books? Well, a huge “care package” arrived on my desk yesterday and Kaoru Sasaki, the lovely and generous Editor-in-Chief of Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Japan (who I met during my trip to Tokyo), sent me the Spring/Summer 2009 issues of his magazines.

Outside John Lawrence Sullivan Fall/Winter 2009

Outside John Lawrence Sullivan Fall/Winter 2009

How funny. A few people have been asking me whether this trench is from Lanvin and I’m always like “uh no, not Lanvin, I don’t have money for Lanvin…. it’s from the friggin’ GAP!”

Speaking of Lanvin, OMG you guys, remember the leopard-print clutch I’ve been lusting for weeks now? Well, I went to this super cool and super luxxe store in Tokyo called RESTIR. Anyway, I saw a beautiul silk Lanvin trench in the same Spring 2009 leopard print but guess how much was it… 658,000 yen or about US$6,600. For a plain silk trench, no embroidery or beadwork, just plain, plain, plain lightweight silk trench coat. I’m no stranger to sticker shock but man, that was really scary. Enough about expensive things or else I’m gonna cry now.

I took a few snaps after the John Lawrence Sullivan show. Click click click!

Magnificent Marie at Adelaide Tokyo

Magnificent Marie at Adelaide Tokyo

Sometime last week, my new friend Marie brought me to the Adelaide store for a little bit of shopping. Marie is a very famous model/celebrity in Japan and we met earlier in the week while shopping along Omotesando. I was like, omg who’s that gurl, she’s soo pretty! Then we bumped into each other at a party in Le Baron de Paris when she was about to leave the club, that’s when we became friends. Next thing you know she took me around the shops.

I took a snap of her working a Marc Jacobs Collection jacket (which I thought was very cute) and a pair of Balmain jeans.
