MTV Europe Awards 2012 Frankfurt

11/12/2012, Current Affairs, Replay

Oh, the things we wear! Here’s one for the books. As you guys know, my friend Eleonora and I recently went to Frankfurt for the 2012 MTV Europe Awards and we were guests of Replay jeans. I thought it would be fun to be cheeky and wear Replay denim overalls to the red carpet. Farmer in the dell, why not? If I wore a suit (with sunglasses) like I usually do on the red carpet, I’m afraid that those Germans would think of me as Psy, gangnam-style and all that. Haha! ;-)

Merhaba Istanbul!

06/12/2012, Current Affairs, Istanbul, Max Mara

Hi guys! I’m here in the magnificent city of Istanbul, Turkey. I’m terribly sorry for the lack of blog entries as of late as I have been ultra busy living my insane life. I went from Tel Aviv (which I still need to blog about — very soon), to New York, to Hong Kong, to New York again, to Frankfurt, to New York again and now I’m in Istanbul. It’s one trip on top of each other, back to back, with so many events in between. The car ride from Istanbul airport to my hotel at six o’clock in the morning felt ultra cinematic. There I was, alone in my car, in the dark, wearing my gorgeous black Max Mara coat, and I was staring at the window. I couldn’t stop asking myself… is this real life? I swear to god, sometimes it feels like my life is a movie. I’m not joking! It’s 4AM now on a Friday and I’m still battling jet lag. Here I am, in my hotel room, wearing nothing but a white bath robe. I opened a bottle of red wine earlier and I’m smoking what’s left on my pack of Marlboro lights on my balcony. Moments like this remind of me movie scenes… Ah well.

Max Mara x 2012 Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Fall Party

26/11/2012, Current Affairs, Events, For A Good Cause, Max Mara

There are very few reasons for a downtown guy like myself to head uptown — Barney’s, Bergdorf’s, the shops along Madison Ave and of course, good causes. For instance, cancer-related causes have a special place in my heart. I’ve lost my aunt Cynthia to the disease a few years ago. The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, along with the fabulous folks at Max Mara, recently held their annual Fall Party at the super chic Four Seasons Restaurant. I had so much fun at the event. Thank you Max Mara for the experience!

Totally Toryffic Cold Weather Essential

25/11/2012, Fashion and Style, Shoes, Tory Burch

Congratulations to me. I’ve just made my first ever Tory Burch purchase. I saw these cute shearling and leather boots at Net-a-Porter earlier this morning. I need a warm and casual every day boot I could wear on my fashion circus days off. Just a few weeks ago I was thinking about buying my first pair of Uggs because the temperatures are not going anywhere but south. So happy I held myself back.

Extreme Shopper Behavior

24/11/2012, OMGOMGOMG

Humanity be damned. Shame on you people, shame on you. Black Friday, without doubt, turned people into cattle. Watch these girls and women storm Victoria’s Secret in Oklahoma. Unbelievable.

All this for bloody yoga pants. Yoga pants, people, yoga fucking pants.

How I Celebrated Turkey Day 2012

24/11/2012, Current Affairs

Before embarking our hour-long train to my beloved Kelly Cutrone’s country house in Cold Spring, my friend Sophie and I had a quick lunch at Cipriani Dolci in the gorgeous Grand Central Terminal. “Pardon me but who are we thanking again,” she chirped. Thanksgiving (something about pilgrims and Native Americans so on and forth), as you know, is a very foreign concept to us. I’m Filipino and she’s British — we’re both transplants (aka ALIENS) in this land. Kelly invited us, along with about thirty of her close friends, neighbours and family members, to celebrate Thanksgiving. It was a fun-filled night with awesome food, great wine and amazing company. Thank you Mama Kelly for your loving hospitality as always.
