Cambodia: Foreign Correspondent's Club Cafe

FCC Cafe was the first place in Siem Reap where Loven and Fate brought me to have some snack.

Fate and moi. Behind us are some wonderful photographs by this French artist.

Passion Friut smoothie, clams in broth and fruti di mari pizza

so true!

Divi with Tina D.

Went to Divisoria with the divine Ms. Tina Daniac, fashion designer par excellance of Tina Tinio of Shu Uemura, Katrina Halili and Nina. We went there shopping for stretch fabrics for swimsuits. I love it there (except the smell!).

the henchman who helped us in looking for the fabric. beside him is one of the supot we had to carry back to the car. may tsikinene sya sa tyan, kita nyo?!

DGI at Bigby's

We have an upcoming project, a fashion show, and after meeting with the organizers, we had dinner at Bigby's. I had a camera so there's kodakan.

shot 1 - medyo sabog si bo

shot 2 - pangit ang shot with the plate of bo na nakatiwangwang. yucky!

shot 3 - medyo ok na sana except that tita jaki had weird eyes.

itigil na ang kodakan na to!

Random Thoughts

Don't you love my necklace paired with my Yohji Yamamoto shirt?

Arena Homme +

One my fave magazine ever since. I believe men's fashion should be directional as the women's are. Forget about GQ, Details and Esquire. They are for geriatric daddies who can't wear Dior Homme, anymore. Arena Homme + is it. Other men's fashion mag I like are V Men and AnotherMagazine. Just look at the cover and editorial shot by Nick Knight (inspired by Mr. John Galliano's anarchic Fall/Winter 07-08 men's collection)

American Vogue May 2007

And I thought the next supermodels were Asian? I don't see any slit eye here.

Nuclear Wintour must have overlooked the fact that there are so many of them in the fall runway.

Paul and Leah's Wedding

Paul and Leah recently exchanged vows. It was a very exclusive, family and friends affair. Not more than a hundred guest were invited. The reception was at Messe: cozy interiors with cute fishbowl centerpieces with a gadget that change light. And you could bring the fishbowl with the goldfish inside after! We feasted on honeyed chicken, lechon de leche, potato gratin, buttered vegetable, beef medley, some fish and a lot more. The wedding cake had three flavors - orange, prune and carrot. Everyone was well oiled with champagne and wine. Of course, the groom was very happy. The couple will be going to Phuket for honeymoon.
