3:00 PM-Archt. Loyola from my almamater (USC CAFA) called me to have me send my thesis to PIA (Phil Institute of Architects) and see if it qualifies for this contest. DUE BEFORE 12MN. Urgent. Rush. EMERGENCY!  Thought cloud:  Have to re-layout and color floor plans and sections tonight.

4:00 PM- Touring around CBP with Herald and Francis, my fellow apprentices looking for things that needed quick wins. DUSTY HUMID DRIZZLING.

6:00- Downloaded application form of the contest. Bathe. Get ready. 

8:30- Left for Formo.

Seriously. Can anyone say HECTIC????Anyhoo. After 8:30, everything else seemed perfect. My sissy and I went to Formo at BTC to attend AZUL. A denim-inspired fashion show by Trappings Accessories, a launching of Trappings' most recent collection. Our eyes feasted on the beautifully hand- crafted cuffs, bibbs, necklaces, earings from Trappings. It's truly inspiring to see something beautifully hand-made, there's that intricacy only made possible by human touch..Company was awesome too. I was also very hyped to meet new friends that night. Check out the photos below.:)

Sorry about the make-up. We suck at make-up. and time pressure didnt help either :))
Thanks to my supportive lil bro for taking this photo
just before we left for the door. :P

New friends the very nice Ate Cathy Cabahug and Joe, Ate Rishi's boyf dj who's sooo cool!
Trivia: three on this table won best-dressed! ;) and Can I just say? I was so happy to see
Junjun (Luis Quibranza) that night. The most familiar thing next to Ninz :))
Thanks so much to Ms. Mimi Sampang for inviting us. :P
Ms. Christine Fernandez rehearsing with Ms Karen Barte and Ms Ninz Sy goofing around. :))

Designer's Call

There's Ms. May, owner of Trappings :)
Can you tell its my happy  place? hahaha.
finally met bloggers Eden of Chic in the tropics and Yves of Yvestyle. yay!:D

I feel mature next to the ladies :)) most of these girls literally
"manned" the show!
Posing for Philippine Street Fashion. I'm not sure
what this is for but I'm so honored to meet this guy.

Partially stolen. Either I'm clumsy or I just got shy.
XX (*wink*)

It was a great night for me and Ninz. Incase you were wondering about the contest, I got home way past 12 so I didn't get to submit, nor re layout my work and blah blah blah. I grieved my self to sleep(there were more hindrances to my entry) but I woke up happy anyway :D

That's it. TGIF. Haha. and Cheers to Trappings!:)

The bee's got me bubbly

Jollibee, Bumble bee, tutubi. I have a new bee love. Ladies and gentlemen,
Bubble bee Tea House.
I've been seeing this place in my friends' pages and finally last June, I got to visit it myself.
It was during the Elim Singles Gathering, the second I've attended so far. It was a fun cozy night of fellowship, food and friends. The ambiance was soothing, the milk teas were fun to drink ( how inappropriate), the pasta aldente, the company was superb, the place was.. exciting

About the place. Oh the place. 

What I like about it most is its zen interior. I always swore to myself that one day, I'd make my room a tropical zen haven. Yes, a spa but with real bed! haha. and I mean aromatic incense, chimes, neutral colors splashed with citrus here and there, warm lights, stones, pebbles, candles, abacca and polystyrene balls. Wood. Woven accents. Eastern accessories. aaaand the kat is daydreaming again! Where does my drafting table even fit in this equation :))  It just has a way of tickling my senses and invigorating my soul. much like delicious flavored body scrubs and body butters. Yum!

So Bubblebee..

In the ground floor, The first thing I saw were the pretty lanterns. If you were in my youth design team you'd know I'm a huge fan of japanese lanterns. They look pretty as they are, and again they make your knees weak when they light up. 

Photos by Tyne. Thanks tyne! (I begged her to take shots of the lanterns
over and over and over again until I was satisfied =)) )

 Inside, it's much like a yogurt or cupcake place. Lights were cool white with homey warm pin lights at the counter, sprinkled with pastel accents (accents in the form of jars, milk tea powder, lanterns, straw, gel, glass, seat cushions, circle patterns) and blue cove lighting. 

photos by yours truly. Tyne's cam.

When I went up the mysterious narrow stairs...

...I was surprised to see a whole new different look. There were lounges, huge throw pillows and very citrus walls in lime, fuschia, and tangerine. Carpets, wood laminates, and glass walls with cascading water all over the place! What got me was that it (the ground and second floor) may have looked entirely different, but there wasn't a sense of "clashing" at all.  The experience was still there, continuous and full of pleasant surprises. Here are a few photos from that night. :) 

The Elim Singles. I guess Ive a new family :))

No fail. haha.

Pioneers :P

The lucky ones who got to enjoy the couch

luckier ones

patterns here and prints there!
Singles. reaaaaally.

Try the milk teas. try it, I tell ya!

Photos from Jay Angelo and Mic Monto. :)
 I didnt get to bring a camera that night so I just grabbed from friends. None of them took interior shots so, I hope you enjoyed watching people! hahahaha. kidding.
 I hope I get to show you more of the zen interiors I was talking about next time. But for now..

 Buzzzzzz! See you at Bubble Bee!

(Okay stupid bee, pay me now!)
hahaha :P
