Styling: Jear De Mc Cuttac
Grooming: Hanna Pechon of Shu Uemura

Model: Danny of Mercator

Special thanks to: Anton Patdu for helping me look for the perfect model, since male model booked for 1 week cancelled last minute like 4hours prior to the shoot.  So thankful and grateful to Anton and to Danny :)

Rxandy suggested if we can make it little quirky and stay away from the usual serious, fierce LB and actually I've been thinking to make it little crazy but little hesitant that Jonathan and Stanley might be shock :) So we assured them that its gonna be cool to have a different approach since the market is yuppies and students :) 

Used some props in the studio since Rxandy has alot of it :) and to have variations tried some no-gimmickry shots as well :) Hope you like it guys! This is one of my faves!
This too :) 

This too! 
David Guison, FD Official Ambassador 

Until next :)

CL: Coach Chot Reyes

Mitch Carag, Celebrity Living Editor, requested if I can style PBA's Coach Chot Reyes, with PR Ms. Lana.   Its quite hard to say NO with these cool people :) plus hey I love basketball!  Check out Celebrity Living Magazine November issue with Geneva on the cover.
Little Insta post :) 
The place is really modern and minimalist-chic.
Up in the bedroom area, where Angelo, writer, my styling-intern Kai, and Mitch.  
LOVE this LV loafer! 
Coach Chot is really cool, funny, and very optimistic kind of person, I can really feel his good aura and natural-kindness persona :)
Check out the official photos as seen on the Mag.

Bacolod Vacay: Episode 4: Huling Hirit

During my last 2 days stay in Bacolod, I definitely would want to go out and just spend time with the family.  Since, I haven't got my college transcript and diploma, I asked Shannelle, my niece to accompany me in Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod.  

The school entrance and some of the areas were renovated and improved :) Definitely, need to check the basic hangouts, and hotspots back then when I was in college...reminiscing....

Learning Resource Center - aka Library  :)
They got wi-fi na! Bongga! 
My Engineering Department :)  Before it used to be Technology Department because among engineering courses offered - ECE, CHEMEng, ELEC, and MECH, my course BS. Chemistry is the only non-engineering course included in the department :) Cool right! 
I was quite very ecstatic to see familiar faces and some of my profs were still there.  L-R. Mrs. Encabo our Algebra, Mrs. Jo our Dept Secretary, and Tatay, our acting Dean, during our time :) 

I wasn't able to meet Nanay Milay, my mentor, BS Chemistry head, professor in major chemistry subjects, since she's teaching in some school na, and got only 2 days left.  I probably see her next time. Miss you Nanay Milay :)

I went to CSA-B since they are the only college offering BS Chemisty in Negros Occidental, next is Silliman University which is in Negros Oriental, which is way too far for me.   After, finishing the clearance, paying all the payables.  I asked Shannelle we need some food tripping and off we go to Calea Lacson for some sweet retreat! 

 Quite surprised that the per slice costs around Php 85 only, and the cap is around Php 90.  To be safe, always ask for the bestsellers :) 

Ordered blueberry cheesecake, mudpie - amongst their bestsellers, and a cappuccino for me :) 

Cheesecake - little flat on the texture, I love the subtle sweetness, size is reasonable.  Rating 3/5.

Mudpie - love the sliced nuts, ice cream melts fast, texture and sweetness is ok. Rating 3/5.

Shannelle ordered frap with ice cream, talking about sweettooth right? 
I want try their cookie as well at Php 35, not bad at all. 

After some light meal, I told Shannelle she badly needed some hair cut.  We went to Robinson Bacolod and had some minor make over :) 
I want to eat something unique here in Bacolod, and it's not available in Manila thus we decided to eat in Chika-an.  A native resto speciallizing local delicacies :) 
Mom, and my niece Sunny meet us in Rob for a simple dinner :) 
Ordered their best sellers - rellenong bangus, and spicy shrimp, just want to rate it 2/5 :( I love their cucumber ice tea however very distinct taste but relaxing :) 
And since, there's still some Masskara displays along the hallways of the mall, we took some photo session with it :) 

UP NEXT! My mini-send off dinner with the family :) Last na promise :)
