Bratmates BORACAY Reunion

Last time I went out of town with my fashion school darlings was ages ago so you can imagine my excitement when Kriska texted me a few weeks ago asking if I'd like to go to Boracay for some much needed R & R. Luckily, Jia was in town and Choc was free so off we went to paradise...

There's really nothing like bonding with old friends...but next time I'm hoping the rest of the brats will be there!

The plan was simple: EAT, SLEEP and BE MERRY. In short, we lived like pigs for 3 days! Wanted to extend but we all had things to do over the til next time bitches! :-) Missing everyone already!

Blogging From Boracay

I'm laying on a lounge chair in Mandarin as I type this. Feels great to be away from everything and everyone (except my 3 fashion school bratmates who are basking in the sun with me at the moment).

I am seeing the light now--and i am not just talking about the Boracay sun, which by the way is extra hot today--I know there will be much changes wen i get back. Pictures to be posted soon.

Thank you De Paris Bar for the Wifi. :-)

Leaving you was difficult. But it had to be done. It's not fair to be with someone when he only has half of your heart. When I've lost the fireworks and the passion--elements that keep a relationship alive.

Please let me find myself and pick up the pieces again. If in time, we really are meant to be then I'll find myself crawling back to you. Whether you accept me again or not, then at least I found myself.

Lessons in life are best learned the hard way anyway...

You are my angel, always have and always will. I am crying as I type this...

But for now, I am signing off. Hoping for the best. Hoping to regain the other half of my heart. Hoping to be better...

For me and hopefully for us.

My blog has been on "idle" mode for a while now. The main reason being this:

Things went smoothly so I'm not complaining! My bitch Pam's wedding was a beautiful one and I cried and cried at the wedding! And then I ate and ate at the reception! Lavish it was and this couple definitely knows how to throw a par-tayyyy! It's a good thing I wore my flowing bias cut gown or my exploding tummy would have been evident after downing all those prawns!:

(With bride and bitchmate Pamee in her 2nd dress, also by me of course!)

And now moving on to other exciting projects such as the upcoming L.A. based online store Dog.And.Bat. Expect my ready-to-wear pieces there soon! :)

"Dream Sprouts"

As promised, here are photos of my S/S 2009 Fashion Week collection (thanks to the talented TSARD CHUA!).

A collection aptly entitled "DREAM SPROUTS", I was inspired by my yo-yo circle placemat project back in 4th grade. It is a very girly collection embellished with dreamy circlettes and origami squares--all in pastels.

FABRICATION: Japanese jusi, crepe, linen, taffeta, plain chiffon (all materials c/o my lovely supplier in New Jersey)

COLORS: Cream, Mint Green, Navy Blue, Rich Blue, Pale Pink

Would also like to thank everyone who came to watch Luxewear B as well as apologize to my clients and friends whom I didn't get to talk to after the show. I was sick as a dog and harassed backstage that night. :-(
