FACEHUNTER GOES TO INTRAMUROS

Today I had the opportunity to hangout with blogger extraordinaire Yvan Rodic of Facehunter fame. We all know how terrible the traffic here in Manila is so I had to MRT it all the way from North Edsa to Ayala. Luckily, I got there right before Yvan's press interview ended. We don't want to leave any bad impression, do we? Punctuality is indeed one of my pet peeves among other things. Anyway, after our brief introduction we hopped into Gio's spacious van to start our Manila field trip. We stopped by Trilogy for a quick lunch pick-up to make sure we have enough energy to last the entire afternoon!

Intramuros was our first pit stop. We met up with the fashion mafia and right away paraded around town! Everybody looked absolutely stunning. Major props to sister stylists Kimi and Boop Yap for enduring the walking tour with their 5-inch heels! After Fort Santiago, we headed to Manila Bay and Cultural Center of the Philippines for a quick walk. We ended Yvan's Old Town tour by getting refreshments at the Pancake House.

Before the Status crew headed back to Makati for Yvan's interview with some magazine, we briefly strolled around Ronac Art Center. I have never been there before so it was quite a treat for me. The guys behind Ronac absolutely did a great job with the architecture of the place. Too bad most of the stores were closed today. So I guess that's another reason to return there. 









Here are some photos I took today...

I absolutely adore the graffiti backdrop. It reminded me of Zagreb and Ljubljana.

Kudos to the folks at Status for bringing Yvan to Manila. Special shout-out to Loris for inviting me to hangout with everybody today! I totally had a wonderful time. It is always a pleasure meeting new people whom I share the same passion. And of course in the fashion industry networking is the key to success and longevity!
