Completely unexpected but I was really surprised and moved when Divine’s fierces (fierce followers) suddenly brought out a birthday cake in the middle of the club.  Being June 5, I really wasn’t expecting anything since I rarely celebrate birthday salubongs the night before.  I was completely oblivious to the floating cake amidst the party goers.

I’d like to say thank you first of all for the amazing gesture, and to applaud all of you whom have supported Divine and I through thick and thin (haha ang drama) and for being such amazing people.  Many people can attest (Robby Carmona included) to the enthusiasm, fun, support, love and life you bring to any party, and gathering.  I feel really lucky for having you guys there and on our side always.  -and for the super yummy truffle chocolate cake from the pen, it was super delicious!

Thank you!

Fashion week was a blur to say the least, getting to this show to that show, making sure cameras, phones are charged, finding time to eat, and all the while trying to absorb all the audio and visual stimuli brought by the directors, designers, djs, and the great crowd that attended and appreciated the creative process realized as clothes and shows.  Before the pile of pictures soon to come, here are a few quiet moments captured by yours truly.

Since it was a reasonably leisurely day, I decided to have some merienda with D at Sango in Rockwell.   I have to admit that I’ve missed this quirky japanese burger joint, so much so that I may have over ordered.  

Okonomiyaki dog!  Just look at that katsuobushi on top that gives it just the right amount of umami flavor!  I also had a master cheeseburger but I scarfed that down before I remembered to take a picture.  Oh well, charge it to delicious!

Photobucket

I made these.   Haha, not.

Photobucket

Make your own Havaianas!  At this point I was already really excited to make my pair of slippers, but of course I was playing it cool.  So I briskly walked in (instead of full on charging the first available slipper technician?)

Photobucket

Immediately everyone was served pomelo juice, piña coladas, wine, and various sodas (no, no diet mtn dew Lana) aside from the assorted h’orderves that the wait staff were hawking (for free of course).

sidney probably asking for help with what color combination to get.  seriously, it’s hard when you’re given a choice of what colors and studs to get on your slippers.

my “technician” was Sy, who was super helpful and patient with my odd request of letters.

Photobucket

Yes, my creation will at last come to fruition!

and voila!  I give you my WAVVES x Havaianas “sky blue”/white combination!  In case you guys are wondering, Wavves is an American noise pop/surf punk band based in San Diego, California.  Alright, they’re an unofficial collaboration but I can at least tell my slippers apart when I hit the beach.  No crazy colors but I think it looks summery [sic].  Those little sunglasses are polarized raybans btw.  Heh…heh.. um ok.

Congratulations Havaianas!

On the set of “Marvel’s The Avengers,” McGarvey and his crew used five Canon 5D Mark II cameras and two 7D models. Using multiple cameras limited the need to re-shoot complex action scenes, and the affordability and compact size of the cameras enabled the crew to obtain ample coverage by strategically angling them from various vantage points throughout the set. “The cameras’ small size was a major advantage to us. We were able to place them in tight locations that were really close to the big stunts, which would be too risky to do with bigger cameras that would require an operator and two assistants,” McGarvey said. He was able to slide one of the Canon cameras into a sewer grating, while placing another under a pile of debris for a key shot of a car hurtling toward the lens, flipping through the air on fire.

Awesome news.  I’m no movie expert but I think the movie was shot really well.  Heck, if it’s good enough for the Avengers!

Boracay was a great trip, if you don’t believe me see the pictures below as well as my previous post with a video up.  Cannot wait to go back, but this time I think I’ll pack extra sunscreen and try not to get sunburned!  Good times!

Say cheese?

Sometimes you can’t explain what happened last night enough in pictures, so I’m going to use moving pictures to convey the rambunctiousness of our Boracay trip.  Enjoy the ride!
