Flights of Stairs

I went to the hospital earlier this afternoon for a doctor check-up and a dental appointment. Might as well hit a few birds with one stone. I took the stairs to go six floors up (and down) rather than wait 10 years for the elevators. Exercise is always good.

I saw this woman stranger smile at me on my way up. She looked like a nice person. I dunno if she recognized me or she just smiled at a random faggot taking vids of himself go up the stairs. LOL.

WERQ!!!

Why I love cab drivers

Why I love cab drivers

Had to take a cab earlier this morning to run very important errands cause our driver is sick.  Ten minutes into the ride, the cabbie started questioning me…

Katrina Halili Hayden Kho scandal;photo of a taxi driver

"Napanood nyo na ba yung video? Ang gandang lalaki ni Hayden Kho. Grabe ang katawan niya noh? Ang libog libog niya! Ganun pala sila (mga doctor), ang hihilig sa sex!"

I died.

You should've seen my face when I heard him say that. He was dead serious and he delivered his speech with conviction I've never heard before. You'd think he'd go on and on and on about Katrina but no, out of all the characters in this so-called KatKho brouhaha, Hayden was his main focal point.

Madame Paulette New York Dry Cleaners

Earlier this year before my grandmother passed away, I fought tooth and nail with a local dry cleaner who ruined one of my garments. They managed to rectify the damage they have done however, some of it is still visible. In the end, I got compensated half of what I asked for. Although it wasn’t the solution I wanted, it was better than nothing. A few friends told me I was lucky. Some dry cleaners won’t shell out a single penny; the most they’ll give you is a smile or a half-baked apology.

Anyway, I came across Madame Paulette’s website earlier this morning. They are based in New York and specialize in cleaning high-end clothes. Remember Melania Knauss in that ginormous, 50-pound Christian Dior haute couture wedding gown from the Empress Sisi/Fall-Winter 2004 collection?

Well, she commissioned Madame Paulette to restore her wedding gown. Watch this video. This is how they clean haute couture.

Isn’t it amazing how technologically-advanced dry cleaners are overseas? Madame Paulette had me on the blacklights! How I wish local dry cleaners are sophisticated like that.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009 Cover

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009

The much-awaited and highly-anticipated Vogue Paris cover featuring Anja Rubik is finally here. Although veteran Anja’s been around the fashion circuit for ages, it’s her first French Vogue cover.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris Magazine Cover, June/July 2009 issue

Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin took the photo.

I’m not a big fan of studio shots on the covers of magazines but the world is going through a recession so it’s quite understable why more and more mags go through that route.

As much as I adore Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Paris, I feel this cover was a let down.

In any case, good job on Anja for this well-deserved cover. It’s about time!
