Last May 11, 2013 Ayala Company in Cooperation with Abreeza Ayala Malls presents the 2013 Style Origin Fashion Show that showcases the exquisite fashion styles and collection of many different stores and brands inside the Mall. It was a fun-filled event. Everyone who are invited are very much excited to witness an extravagant fashion show. It is really a show to look forward too. 

Summer's Not Yet Over.

The Good Life!

I had another collaboration with the SWERV Clothing, and this time we are trying to make it inside the women's fashion scene. The collection is simply showing how to incorporate our tees on your daily outfit and make work and be chic at the same time. Swagger but Stylish.

We are fortunate that we have some friends who are willing to work with us and model our tees. They made the tees work in their respective fashion style. 

Chicser: A Valentine Show

Last February 15, 2013, Friday, at 6:00 in the evening at SM City Davao Annex, CHICSER: A VALENTINE MALL SHOW happened. Chicser is considered to be a new generation boy group who started building fame through the web.  
To those who doesn't have any idea on who they are, well CHICSER is an all Filipino teens male dance group that currently holds the title of being the hottest and trendiest male group in micro-blogging site twitter. Chicser has 6 members namely Ullyses Webb Basa, Clarence Adrian Villafuerte, Biboy Cabigon Chua, Owy Posadas, Oliver Lance Posadas and Ranz Kyle Viniel Ongsee. With their looks and their talent, it's no doubt that they can grab attention especially from the young girls and can make them scream and shout for them. So during the show, in order for you to get in to the area, you must first purchase an eco bag and get a pass for the show.

Godiva Skin Care

February 2, 2013

Godiva Natural Skin Care launched its brand to the public held at SM City Davao - Annex. Godiva is the newest line of skin care products released in the country. Many famous bloggers, publicists, and influential people joined the celebration. They even distribute loot bags of freebies to the guests. There were also some booths out there where they will give you make overs, or they can test if your skin was dry or not and a lot more. It was really a successful event. I'm glad that i became part of it. Thanks to my cousin Lance for inviting me to be there. 

Richard Poon in Davao

February 2, 2013, Richard Poon gave the Davaoenos an early valentines and Chinese New Year good luck this year. He serenaded the whole SM Lanang Premier with his soulful and jazzy music. It happened during the 3-Day Great Sale of the Mall. It's not really a long show yet he was able to amuse and amaze the people on his arrangements and approach to different style of songs, from classics to RNB and pop, though his real genre of music is Pop Standards. I'm really overwhelmed and thankful that i was able to experience hearing the ultimate crooner of the Philippines.

Travel: Ho Chi Minh - Day 1

I'm really excited for my first day. I am ready to explore and wander tot he wonders of Ho Chi Minh. My excitement is unexplainable. I'm just too ecstatic to walk around the city. So for our first stop, we went to the Reunification Palace, since it's the nearest spot from our hotel. 
Reunification Palace w/as originally the presidential palace of the south and has been left untouched since the day the communist tanks crashed through the gates at the surrender of Saigon to the north. Be sure to check out the inside with its impressive recreation room, basement and the vintage equipment also left exactly as it was found since that day. It was really a great experience for me to be able to see all that.

Going Overseas!

I just had my first ever international / overseas trip last January 25-28, 2013. Our destination was the beautiful country of Vietnam, particularly the wonderful city of Ho Chi Minh or formerly known as Saigon. As much as I wanted to show you all 800+ photos from or trip, I find it quite inappropriate and it's going to be a long blog post if ever. So I'll just show you some photos that i took during the trip as a "sneak peek" for you as how wonderful Ho Chi Minh is.

Ho Chi Minh City. Who would have thought that this place has been the watchful witness and host to a country at war? Well now there’s only a thin presence and scattered evidence of the war efforts remain. The city is now a colorful, energetic, and chaotic metropolis driven forth by commerce and a unique blend of culture. Far from scarce on sights and attractions to discover here you’ll find yourself lost in a timeless wander through captivating museums, teeming markets, and fragrant roadside shops intermingled beneath skyscrapers and fashion malls. An attack on the senses, a city on the move, and full of endless vitality, you’ll need to prepare yourself for an exhilarating ride through this city. 

L'usine

More than just a fashion boutique, cafe and art gallery, L’usine is a contemporary Vietnamese experience. Inspired by the timeless elegance and enterprising industry of the Indochina era, L’usine’s founders have designed a space that not only showcases global fashion but celebrates modern Vietnamese creativity.
Tucked away down a tight alley in the heart of Saigon, one of the city’s most pleasant cafes perches in an upstairs loft. Only a short walk from most of the city’s major sites, like the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Saigon Opera House, L’usine is a quiet oasis. Although it’s on the major shopping street of Dong Khoi it’s hard to find to the untrained eye. It will require a short walk down a dark alley lined by clothing and accessories boutiques; once at the end follow the signs up the stairs and you’ll find the cafe.

Touchdown: Vietnam!

It's my first time travelling overseas. Overwhelmed and i am super excited for this trip.Going out of town has never been customary in our family, it happens rarely. Every time we have a long break we only have domestic trips, never an international trip. Since everyone had the privilege to ward off stress during the holiday, our family took the advantage to visit Vietnam. 

Upon arrival at the airport, i really feel ecstatic knowing that i'm already in another country outside Philippines. I really can't stay still. We arrived at the hotel at around 2:00 in the morning, Vietnam time. They are 1 hour behind than Philippines.

let's take it to the streets!

Times a precious thing to waste, but friends are more precious.
This is another random night shoot i had with two of my awesome friends, Janine and Antoine. 
We just happen to love the lights and the empty street. 
Here's a simple poem i read online that i can associate with the shoot we had. hope you like it.

Our Love
Loves memory has traced our outline in this place. 
But will the spider remember, or the sun?
Did the water capture our faces in permanence?
Does the wind create us anew as it blows?
Did the shadows from the trees record our passage beneath them?

That Good Feeling!

SWERV!

What's the best thing to do when travelling? Travel light and wear light and comfortable clothes. In my recent Manila trip, i wore a shirt from the newest clothing collection in town, the SWERV Clothing. It is an Urban Lifestyle clothing that aims to bring out the best of an individual, It is to inspire the people to be always pursue and be motivated to be on the top of their game. By definition, SWERV means "that good feeling" which actually can be associated in any aspect. 

Forever 21

January 21, 2013. 

I'm officially 21 years old. Time has gone so fast, things are getting tougher and tougher each day. It's now my debut, but i'm not having the ideal bachelor's party or whatever. Today, i took it as if it's just an ordinary day and people just made it special because it it my birthday, and i really appreciate it.

Im really really happy today because finally, after a long wait, my parents bought me or us a DSLR Camera, which i really aspired for a quite some time now. We bought a Canon 1100D EOS Digital camera, which is perfect for the upcoming vacation trip to Vietnam.

As for myself, I bought 3 V-neck shirts from Maldita, and eventually since they had a Buy 1 take 1 promo, my sis and I took the opportunity to buy some clothes that we can use for out Vietnam trip this coming 24th of January. I also bought a new pair of socks from Oxygen Clothing.

*new shirts from Maldita|Man*

Backyard Burger

My mom, my sister and I are craving for burgers for dinner, as we think of good burger joints in the city, we came across lots of awesome establishments such as Army Navy, Gino's Boom Burgers, Brother's Burger and Outback Grill. We are really confused where to go that night, but suddenly I remembered that few months back, my mom and I went to the Tulip Drive branch of Backyard Burger, and i loved the food they served us and how good it tastes, so i suggested to go to the nearest BB Joint in downtown, which is the Backyard Burger Central branch.


Backyard Burger is a modern day "roadside" burger joint that is proudly Dabawenyo owned and operated by the most delicious burgers that side of the metro.

Ordinary Wednesday

It is somewhat a gloomy day. The weather is really bipolar. So i decided to just wear a comfortable shirt-and-jeans outfit to get me through the day. It's just a typical wash day for me, nothing special. I go to class, hang-out with some friends, go home and be a sloth, sleep all day. Nothing extraordinary in such an ordinary day. Well, i was just dragged to do this shoot by my cousin, Lance de Ocampo, since he is having an outfit shoot almost everyday. So I accompany him at Marco Polo Hotel Davao and go on with the shoot, before i actually went home.

Throwback!

THROWBACK!

here's another set of photos from the shoot i had with Haemi Jun and Sofia Aledia at a particular cemetery here in Davao City. It's weird right! who would have thought that a cemetery can actually be a good spot for a shoot hehe :) This is one of the firsts that I've done with my twin.

Holiday Getaway

Happy New Year! This is my first ever post for 2013. woohoo! Well, during the holidays i am thankful that i was able to relax and been able to pamper myself with a beach trip! 

It's the last day of school for 2012 that me and my friends decided to have a beach trip. Since we weren't able to book our favorite hideout which is the Pacific's Little Secret Resort, we ended up going to La Famila Beach Resort in Samal Island. It was not as beautiful as PLS, but still we still had fun because of the company of friends.
