YABU, YABU, YABU!

Third time's the katsu charm as Yabu opened it's 3rd branch at SM Mall of Asia via an exclusive pre-opening party for lifestyle editors; food, fashion and lifestyle bloggers last
November 27. (The branch opened its doors to the public the following day)

Unlike at the opening of their Robinsons Magnolia branch, I was at their SM MoA opening early (actually, a tad too early) and was able to witness the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Yabu's SM MoA branch, according to its brand manager Denise Cabotage, is their smallest compared to their first two but it fell nothing short of the unique design consistency and the cozy ambience which we, the patrons of Yabu, loved.
And now for the craziness that is katsu

Shulong
and Res Toe Run rallied artists and shoe junkies last November 25 to let their creativity loose with their own Shulong designs.
Participants from different universities in the metro were encouraged to go crazy with their designs while still having a unifying theme which best represents their respective schools.

Shulong, which means "Comfortable Dragon", is not your typical sneaker. These Wushu-inspired sneakers have a special handcrafted sole - similar to how Wushu shoes are actually crafted. The secret is how the shoes are "cooked" when they are assembled. The shoes are placed in a special oven until the rubber insole becomes a sturdy but comfortable sponge inflated with micro air bubbles.
But what makes Shulong stand out is the…

BOCONCEPT AT 60

Image
BoConcept celebrated its 60th anniversary last September and paying homage to its roots was the launch of SIXTY, the brand's anniversary book which serves as the brand patron's vehicle into the past.
Though I frequent Bonifacio High Street, I've never been inside BoConcept's store before. My reasons being that I find it too early for me to invest on such things; and I always have this fear hesitation of going inside an upscale store. My fear is either I end up arguing with a snooty sales person for reprimanding me for just ogling plus the occasional sitting or worse, end up buying something impulsively leaving big burns in my pocket in the process.
BoConcept proved otherwise.
If you've never been a BoConcept store before, allow me to take you on a photo tour.
And my favorite display was this set,

More about Flawless!
The country's preferred clinic for face, body and medical services is inviting everyone to keep their eyes peeled for what they call a "fabulosuly explosive December" as the brand prepares for a grand 11th birthday bash next month.
It's National Flawless Month this December! And along with this month-long celebration of beauty and wellness is the launch of Flawless latest advocacy campaign, The BillBag Project. We've seen the ads. We've seen the billboards. Ever wondered where do all those big tarpaulin materials go to after being used?

THE LEGEND OF THE BOY WHO LIVED

Image
HP fan here.

I practically "grew" up with him.

Read the books. Watched the movies. Even joined a competition hosted by National Bookstore when the first book was brought to life via a board game. I lost by the way.

I still remember that one player was this annoying kid who had an actual scar on his forehead (caused by an accident) who knew the full song of the sorting hat by heart. He even had a tune for the whole thing but still, he's still annoying. He also lost. Even cried actually.

Now on to my look!
This is the second set that I and Adrian Gonzales, who's also a Harry Potter fan, did.
This was supposed to be my entry for the Ray-Ban Legends campaign but due to deadline conflicts, I was not able to submit this set on time.
Why Harry?

Along with the recent launch of Flaunt magazine to the media is the new and improved digital domain of Flawless which hasn't been touched since it was launched …
