Denimlab | Sandara x Penshoppe

I love denim. Raw denim, washed denim, blue denim, bleached denim, acid-washed denim, it’s just one of those things you can’t live without. The fabric is synonymous as synonymous with cowboys and railroad workers as it is with rockstars and rebels, it is no wonder that a type of intrinsic style, attitude, and coolness imbues it’s wearer once worn. I was invited by Jeff Bascon, who heads Penshoppe’s direction and I must say I’m glad I made the trip as I saw the latest styles that will for sure be your summer staples very soon. Joyce Pring hosted with her …

Summer Colors and Petals | Rustan's Sunset Party

Rustan’s had a sunset party entitled Summer Colors and Petals, featuring different top tier brands showcasing their summer colors in Rockwell, I was wondering where exactly the event would be since I wasn’t all too familiar with the place save for the actual mall. Sunset party, where could this be? Fast forward to entering a narrow corridor, greeted with sincere smiles (Hi Visions PR!) and led into a full fledged summer garden party -albeit indoors and airconditioned but it really felt like the best of indoor and outdoor worlds. I had arrived with one of my blogger friends Paul, who seemed a …

Take A Bow | Archery Academy

I remember watching Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, yes, matagal na yun, and being amazed by how Robin Hood could split an arrow from incredible distances. I even remember purchasing those native looking bow and arrows from street vendors as a kid in New Manila and trying to no avail to pull a Robin Hood. All I did was scare Brownie and Whitey (my Lola’s Aspin dogs) My failed vigilantism and archery dreams disappeared, only to be rekindled when watching Arrow and the Hunger Games. Archery has had a reemergence recently, which can be attributed to movies and shows above, also who can deny …

Chicken Run | Fowl Bread

Tasteless Restaurant Group (Hole In The Wall, Wrong Ramen, Hanamaruken, Le Petit Souffle) has recently launched their newest creation at Bonifacio High Street, Fowl Bread! The name pertains to what they serve, which starts with spicy fried chicken sandwiches, fries, and it gets a little more adventurous with garlic noodles and gyoza! The chicken sandwich has two chicken pieces, one is chicken meat and one is chicken skin! Genius! It’s then topped with a pickled pickle and radish.  You can choose your spiciness level, much like in Hole In The Wall’s Bad Bird. The levels are normal, spicy and chemical …

Extraordinary | Wolfgang's Steakhouse

Finding the perfect steak is a very personal affair, some swear by red hot coals and a grill, others a smoking hot cast iron pan to get the perfect sear on a dry aged ribeye while bigger places have massive broilers to get the charred outside and pinkish middle. Some add all sorts of spices and sauces, others swear by salt, pepper and a little oil. We could go on to choice of meat, or how the cattle was raised et cetera but who really cares? Wolfgang Zwiener does, he wants diners to truly experience the extraordinary in his steakhouse. …
