Sunglass Sunset | Ronnie & Joe Anniversary

Ronnie & Joe, the eyewear boutique one would go to when looking for hard to find labels such as Cutler & Gross, Matsuda, Ksubi, Native Sons, DITA, Margiela Karen Walker, and Thom Browne to name a few celebrated their anniversary as well as a new store opening on a semi-hidden gem of a rooftop of Powerplant Mall, Rockwell. I naturally brought my camera given the details.

Your Top Blogs | Nuffnang Country Manager’s Dinner

I31B0057Ritz, ang blurry ng photo mo! Haha, black and white nga lang. The one right next to me is Abe, Country Manager for Nuffnang Philippines! Usually in Geekynights he’s the tech guru and Mr. Yugatech, or plain ol’ Abe but that night he was hotshot bigwig mode haha!

Nuffnang is the world’s leading blog advertising community which connects brands with bloggers, as well as strengthens ties and relationships between other bloggers as well. It’s like a big summer camp with lots of talented folk, wherein everyone has their own expertise or speciality. You have style and fashion bloggers, tech bloggers, food bloggers, fitness bloggers, et cetera. It’s a great mix of interesting characters! Interaction is usually more online than offline (irl) so it was great to hang out and share ideas and of course eat, drink and be merry at the Nuffnang Country Manager’s Dinner which happened at Vyne at Bonifacio Global City.

A flurry of drinks and cocktails were served.

Together with a 9-course meal!

I31B0023

Other awards were given that night as well as King of Projects, as well as top hits! But more importantly, we had a name that tune game which I was sure I’d win.

The Soshal Network with their best guesses cracked everyone up!

I31B0081

I had a chance to win but I messed up Britney Spears’ song title, apparently it’s “…Baby One More Time” and not “Hit Me Baby One More time” Grrrr… sayang! It’s ok, I’m not pikon. Honest!

I31B0087

Congrats.                                        Haha!

STUDIO 54 | Ruffa’s Disco Glam Birthday Bash

The moment I saw the invite to Ruffa’s birthday, I knew I’d quickly be out of ideas of what to wear. You see, there’s a fine line between looking good and in theme, and looking like you rented a costume so I decided to tread lightly. Was my choice a hit or miss? Who knows? The ladies on the other hand I’m sure did their homework because they came in what appeared to be all the rage in 1978! Everybody looked great, and Ruffa truly was the star of the night looking like a hollywood glamourpuss! Incredible party!

LIVE FOR NOW! | Original Penguin x Pepsi

 photo pp-1161_zpsbbe3f88e.jpg

The launch of the Original Penguin x Pepsi LIVE FOR NOW Capsule collection was an exciting and suitably timed event, especially considering the World Cup Fever taking over many countries recently. (Brazil literally sounds like a warzone everytime their team scores a goal) The limited edition collection featured cutting-edge international artists with their designs linking the passion of football and art into the pieces. The attendees featured a mix of celebrities, athletes, bloggers, and media personalities.

I was in very good company of course, Maggie Wilson-Consunji, Kelly Misa and Maxene Magalona (all wearing Original Penguin)

Celebrating my 20something | A Surprise Sofitel Party

Sofitel is a pretty special and memorable place for me. It’s like one of those places that no matter how many things change, it’s a place one can go to and have a good time or get some well needed R&R. Also, it’s where I used to go swimming occassionally when I was a kid, as well as hit golfballs lousily into the sea and pretend I knew the difference between a 9 iron and a driver. Like I said, good times. It was also the place where I attended this one of a kind reggae fest, and somehow ended up in the pool that same night! My good friends, Wyanet and Adrian also had their wedding reception here after tying the knot. Sofitel is also the place where I used to go for sunsets when contemplating the state of my lovelife then. Oh, and I also got very close to this amazing woman that same time 😉

Enough nostalgia!  Here are the photos from my “surprise” birthday party last June 6th

Tim Yap “Upwards” Birthday Party | 71 Gramercy

My friend Tim Yap threw a print on print themed Birthday party at 71 Gramercy (which we all know is the highest point in the metro) perfectly appropriate I think as the the venue suited his new mantra for 2014 which is “Upwards” or as the birthday boy would like to say “Yapwards” Really fun party with lots of familiar faces who were all smiles that night to celebrate Tim’s birthday bash!
