The Morning Before The Party

Published by bryanboy

Who went from New York to Milan, Paris to Los Angeles (for thirty six hours) then Paris again during fashion month? I did! For a good reason — I went to my first Teen Vogue Young Hollywood event and boy I had lots of fun! Check out this fun video with my friend Andrew the morning before the amazing party.

Santiago Situation

Published by bryanboy

I had to say “YES YES YES, SI SI SI!” when Spanish jewelry brand Aristocrazy invited me to visit Santiago Chile to co-host the launch party of their first store opening in Latin America. I know I’ve been to Brazil a number of times but I’ve always wanted to go the Spanish-speaking side of South America to brush up on my beginner Spanish skills.

Five days of glorious, sunny weather, good food (probably the best salmon I’ve had in such a long time) and lots of friendly people. There’s also street art everywhere! I’m really surprised how modern Santiago is. It’s a shame that I was taping most of the time I was there and I didn’t really have a chance to fully explore the city but I vow to come back someday on my own terms (aka vacation). I had lots of fun nonetheless. Gracias Aristocrazy, gracias Chile. Me encanta Santiago!

Water For Haiyan Survivors

Published by bryanboy

My homeland, the Philippines, is on the spotlight once again because of Typhoon Haiyan. All the catastrophic images and videos I’ve seen online are gut-wrenching. I’m so lucky and blessed that my family and friends back home were spared from the disaster but for the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who were affected by the storm, their lives are changed forever. I can’t even imagine what the survivors went through during the storm and what they’ll go through as they try to rebuild their lives moving forward. What a mess!

While it’s great to donate to the big institutions such as UN World Food Programme (click HERE) and Oxfam (click HERE), I also like to support smaller organizations that send relief to victims and survivors. My friend Julie Gilhart shared to me the efforts of Waves For Water. To kickstart their Haiyan campaign, they’ll immediately send at least 200 clean water filtration systems providing up to 20,000 typhoon survivors access to clean water. Why don’t you take a break from what you are doing and do what I did — donate a few dollars and give yourself a pat on the back for a good deed. Every little bit counts.
