I have been a lazy blogger. I guess I am on holiday. I just have to get my groove back. Last week, Rajo Laurel invited me to his amazing ancestral home in San Juan. From my previous post, he received an award from the president of the Philippines (Ten Most Outstanding Young Men).
I am very proud of him. When we entered the manor, I felt like Annette Benning in Love Affair. I was looking for my Warren Beatty (Mystery Man is in Copenhagen, Denmark). I just love my fascination with Hollywood movies.
I've been to big houses in Manila, but I've never seen such beauty. Indeed, it was a very intimate affair and I am so happy that I am a part of his exclusive family.
He sent me pictures of the house. Amazing.
My love to Rajo. It's glad to be home.

I do not why I am so addicted to Homme et Femme in Manila. Mark Gonzalez has been a friend for the longest time... Pia Miranda is her niece and a good friend of mine. :)
New York has been my shopping mecca for 10 years. Every time I come to his store in Manila, I just die and salivate with all the Dries Van Noten and Balenciaga. Why? He has good taste. He knows his clients very well... he edits.
This trip, I have been to his store 3 times. I can't wait to wear my new Liberty of London shirt. It is the perfect shirt for my upcoming trip to Malaysia.
As a bloody Taurus, I get what I want. Hahahahaha.
Please read my previous entries about Homme et Femme. You guys will understand why I live for his brands.

Besides Yara and Daniella, I consider Anne as one of my closest friends. She is the sweetest person. I admire her sense of style because she believes that simplicity is the essence of sophistication... my original line. Excuse me.
Here are some of her breathe taking looks from the red carpet.
Big Kiss to you babe.

Wednesday was not a good day for me. I have been running around the city doing errands and at the same time returning samples to different showrooms... fashion nightmare. Anne sent me a text message. I got so excited because I have not seen her in months. She invited me to be her date to a movie premiere at the Paris Theatre, "The Lovely Bones".
Of course, Anne wore head-to-toe Calvin Klein and I wore my Tyler sculptural jacket to compliment her look. The photographers went crazy over her. She is a pro when it comes to posing. Duh! She is a model.
We had good seats. Seated next to me is Dan A. and Courtney Love. How fun? :)
Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Mark Wahlberg, and the cast members were present at the premiere. The movie is all about love of family and the disturbing sickness of pedophilia (Stanley Tucci). I won't give you too much details. You have to watch it. I give it a two thumbs up.
The after party was at the OAK Room at the Plaza Hotel. Anne and I found a new friend, Dan Abrams. We had an interesting conversation... world affairs including fashion. The Oak Room became our domain.
It was a fun evening. Thanks Anne. I love you so much.
