Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011

Mark worked with designer Tina Daniac as a model thanks to Matt and Jake. Tina was kind enough to give us invites for the Luxe Wear Collection at Fashion Week. We met Mafe, Kevin and his friend at the entrance, signed the guest list and were ushered inside. The staff was really nice to us and gave us front row seats. Awesome. Some of the works were good, some were uhm. hmm. Saving the best for last, Tina's collection wowed the crowd. I am really happy she used dark models or painted some of them. It was breath of fresh air, summery and very Japanese Ko-Gyaru sort of style. All in all, we had a great time. Here are some of the pieces I liked and some, Mark would call "never-to-wear" list.
Mango black jacket, F21 gold top from Sydney, Topshop bandage skirt, Charles & Keith ankle boots, blue leather Ferragamo briefcase


 but this white wonder is just fab!

Baguio 2010

Let’s be honest. Baguio has seen better days. Gone are the days of misty airport landings and nights caressed by the sound of pine trees rustling in the cool mountain wind. SM set up shop and Session Road is choked with traffic. But Baguio is still the Summer Capital of the Philippines and the magic can still be found at Camp John Hay. Make sure to book a room in the Camp to recapture the magic of a mountain retreat. Golf, paintball, rock climbing and abseiling are all steps away. Baguio also packs a gastronomic punch. 
Cafe by the Ruins is an absolute delight, serving organic, locally sourced, gourmet dishes, served up with freshly baked in-house bread. It’s location on the ruins of the US Governor’s mansion only sweetens the deal - but make sure you order their hot chocolate. No less impressive is Forest House Bistro, magically presented as a warm hunting lodge. Service is exquisite and the well-needed soups are served in adorable bowls of bread. Head to the mountains in winter, when the cold air makes Christmas all that more palpable.
