My newfound acquaintances in Beijing made me ride the subway yesterday en route to a housewarming party and boy I had fun. You know, I would like to use the subway more but walking in Beijing is such a bitch. It’s a MASSIVE city and for me, it’s so much easier if I cab it.
Each ride on the subway (you can go ANYWHERE within Beijin) costs 2 Yuan which is like oh bloody hell, thirty US cents? Dang!!!
Well, the secret is out of the bag. As some of you already know, I did a quick shoot for Singapore’s Style Magazine and my solo editorial will come out in a few weeks. It’s gonna be awesome I’m telling you. I did several looks… girls, boys (there’s this GREAT scene involving a banana but I don’t think it’s gonna get published), mixed and everything in between! I’m so excited…and nervous at the same time! I hope I’m capable of giving good pictures. Hah! Here’s a quick video of me trying to WERK one of the looks for the camera. The key word is TRYING. LOL.
Trust me, getting the right shot for that look was harder than I thought. My legs are so short, stumpy and thick. Ugh! Sometimes I wish I was 6’2 but oh well. Nothing I can do about that…
I went out on Thursday night with some of Singapore’s lovely fashion bloggers. I wanted to have a quick dance before I go to sleep so we ended up at this club called “Play”. Most of the gay clubs were closed but that’s Singapore for you.
Anyway, the bouncer let us in for free. Natch! I was wondering where all the guys were… turns out, it was a lesbian night! I only realized this after 10 minutes of dancing and I saw chicks snogging on the stage!
It’s all fun and good. It’s quite interesting (and refreshing) though to go to a lesbian club especially in this conservative city/state. I mean, correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t even think there’s a lesbian night/club in Manila and we have what, 14 or 15 million people in the city? That’s the third world for you.
Thank GOD for the weekend. I know I haven’t been posting a lot of updates as of late but I have so many things to do on my laundry list. It’s been crazy the past few weeks. Every day is a new day and 24 hours are SIMPLY. NOT. ENOUGH. Several insensitive readers even complained about the recent content of my site and how I should go back to “real” blogging. Whatever that is. Since when did blogging become a big fucking burden? An obligation? Although I completely understand where they are coming from, I, like everyone else, have my own set of P-R-I-O-R-I-T-I-E-S, a set of deadlines to beat. The problem with these people is that they expect far too much (which is already SO wrong) when, at the end of the day, they’re just spectators. I don’t even have time for a facial for goodness sake let alone sit here just to attempt to please everybody!
Enough whining. Here’s a super quick video of something I did for the next issue of Tank. Enjoy!
Tomorrow I’m doing L’Officiel. Which one… I guess I can’t tell.
And then I have my niece’s birthday to worry about.
God I need a vacation.
PS. I just read and re-read what I typed above and I apologize if I sound like a raging cunt. Don’t get me wrong. I *love* being busy. It’s all fun and good (while I’m still at my prime)… and I’m thankful for everything that is coming my way.
