BURTON MENSWEAR LONDON OPENS ITS FIRST STORE IN MANILA

I believe in grabbing opportunities by its horns the minute it present itself. Like being invited to speak to a group of established Doctors in Batangas. That's something I couldn't pass up (even though the memory still makes me feel queasy). An hour before that talk, I was able to enjoy a short period of free time at Pontefino, Batangas. Fell in love (seriously) with the place! Who wouldn't?
Took this on my own. Self-timer mode, baby.
How do you like my navy suit?

Now, this is also an opportunity I couldn't pass up. Bought this set the minute I set my eyes on it at the opening of Burton here in Manila a few months ago.

Wore this again for lunch at Midas Hotel Cafe last week. I made sure to ask someone to take a decent photo of me wearing it since the first one (though picturesque) was in poor quality.
