L-R: Swiss Ambassador H.E. Ivo Seiber and Madame Gracita Seiber, Pat Cortez (DKSH), Marifr Zamore (Convergys), Ambassador Delia Albert, Rosario Cajucom Bradbury and Darwin Bañez (AVP Primer Group)
Or maybe I’m close to being one of them? Earth Rullan CEO Earthlingorgeous Empire (hahaha)
Great things start from small beginning anyway . Just like the story of Victorinox which began began in 1884, when Karl Elsener opened a cutlery workshop to deliver a solider knife to the Swiss Army. Little did he know that what he had invented would go on to become an iconic and legendary tool, the Original Swiss Army Knife.
Over the years, customers’ needs and technology continuously change and Victorinox had to evolve so as to respond and deliver products that are likewise revolutionary and essential for both its alpha male market and also that of the modem female warrior.
This year, Victorinox marked another milestone as it introduced its very first women’s line called Victoria, named after its founder’s mother. In an intimate gathering entitled “Queens of Their Trade” held last November 13 in the New World Hotel, Victorinox together with the Philippine Swiss Business Council launched this new collection.
In true Swiss fashion, the event started with the ringing of a bell, a custom held in Switzerland to mark the beginning of any important celebration. Soon, the program began with Mr. Washington Sycip, CEO of the Primer Group of Companies, welcoming the guests to the celebration.
This was followed by speeches from Swiss Ambassador, H.E. Ivo Sieber and Philippine Swiss Business Council Chair, Ms, Rosario Cajucom-Bradbury, The formal launch of Victoria was led by Madame Gracita Seiber, wife ofAmbassador Seiber, with a ceremonial checkmate move on a lighted chessboard; a move that symbolized the strength of the Queen.
Another highlight of the evening was the honoring of five Filipina CEO’s: Rosario Cajucom Bradbury (SGS), Marife Zamore (Convergys), Pat Cortez (DKSH) and Amb. Delia Albert (SGV). These Filipina Achievers were selected based on their significant contributions to their respective fields of disciplines, and like Victoria, embody strength, character, versatility and excellence.
When it comes to elegance, superior c rafts manship, and technological innovation, Victorinox remains to be the pride of Swiss heritage with its iconic products and innovative range of lifestyle essentials. With The launch of its first women’s line, Victorinox has now expanded its reach to the modem woman offering her a reliable companion for her versatile lifestyle.
Thoughtfully designed by a woman and for a woman, the Victoria Collection seamlessly will take every woman from one moment of her busy day to the next. It is a little piece of luxury, made Just for her, because she deserves it.
Just being invited to this prestigious event is already an honor. Rubbing elbows with the people I admire is the best. Learning tricks of the trade and just being inspired by their achievements and life stories.
One of my favorite animation movie was How to Train Your Dragon (HTTY). My favorite character is Toothless the Dragon he is so adorable.
When I was invited to attend the unveiling of the HTTY Christmas Theme of BF Paranaque I did not hesitate but go and bring the daughter along.
It was a fun night to kick-off the Philippines Christmas Season with Toothless and the funny Vikings one of which felt he looked like Malifecent because of his extra long horns! Haha!
The Company serenades attendees of the HTTY Christmas at SM BF Paranaque with the Paranaque Mayor gracing the event as well.
The Main Atrium was magically transformed into the Viking village of Berk, where mall-goers can cuddle up to Toothless the dragon or sail off aboard the Viking ship.
It also features a 24-foot Christmas tree filled with twinkling lights and decked in holiday decorations.
SM City BF Parañaque also prepared a lineup of exciting activities that will surely add sparkle to the Christmas season. Those who want to share their Christmas wish list to Mr. Claus himself can join the Santa Meet and Greet at 7 p.m. on November 7, and at 5 p.m. on December 12, 19, and 21.

There’s only two options either you stayed at home did a movie marathon and got interrupted by trick or treaters from time to time or you were one of the thousands who troopped to the “it” bars in BGC/Makati/Quezon City and wore costume and partied the night away.
I was the later. At 7pm I was already walking at BGC with my Halloween look on for the first party of the night. The Globe Halloween Night where they introduced Globe’s Lifestyle Bundles perfect for the millenials who are having online/mobile dependency.
Globe Lifestyle Bundles includes Shopping, Navigation, Chat, Work and Photo bundles that suits your needs starting at Php99.00 a month.
To know more about the Globe Lifestyle Bundles visit www.globe.com.ph/lifestylebundles
The event was held as Skinny Mike in BGC where the traditional Skinny Mike’s Quiz Night also happened with a drink-off between female members of the teams to break a tie!
But my mosr favorite part of my night was seeing people making an effoet to come in their Halloween costunes/attire.
The “Shopping” team table! Love the costumes! Sailor Moon, Pin Head and the winner of the Best in Costume the Living Dead Pirate of Pirates of the Carribean!2
I left the Globe Halloween Night around 1030pm and went to my second party destination the Fort area. Lines were long everywhere and it was full! Glad Aylin included me at the guest list at Haze so I was able to cut the line and warmed up with some friends there. Haha actually warmed up at the Globe party already with 3 bottles of beer! Hello Guiness I love you!
This was the only shot I got from Club Haze my fone got dead batt and had to borrow USB wire from Melanie which was taking too long to charge so killed my fone and partied!
This is how i looked that night and a cute guy I met in another bar gave me a cute “pickup” line. Lol! “Hey, you’re looking pretty scary tonight. I mean you look pretty even if you look scary. Umm if that makes any sense.”
I wasn’t dumb I wasn’t born yesterday so I know what he means. Thank you.
Around 12mn the Club was getting full. We were getting tipsy but to lazyvto move out. We stayed inside and partied and people watch. Then some group of those kind of girls woth those kind of men arrived. Tasteless in anyway just making out in front of everyone like they’re cool. So we went out about 2am and this is what we saw!
Chaos outside Club Haze, Imperial and Craft! So many people trying to get in! Inside was already full!
Lots of fun characters coming out. It was literally a circus out there that night!
It was a real circus that night in the area. So decided to head out coz I’m kinda tipsy.
It was fun much fun if my phone cooperated hahaha!
Actually Halloween parties are just starting to buzz in the Philippines even trick or treating because usually Filipinos go to cemetery and remember their dead and light tons of candles for all relatives to the nth degree departed souls.
Anyway, where and how did you spent your Halloween night?
Stay gorgeous everyone!

I Zumba almost everyday, I like doing it because it is a fun way to exercise compared to the boring gym setting where you lift weights or stretch without tempp. I like dancing to a nice beat and Zumba stretches all parts of your body and makes you sweat buckets which is good. Exercising makes obe hapoy and makes you glow naturally.
When Glutamax invited me over for their White Zumba Party of course I went!
There I was caught in the act !
My fellow mommy bloggers and GMA artist celebrities havong fun at the Glutamax White Zumba Party at The Roxy Events Place in Quezon City.

The much talked about H&M Manila Philippines VIP Opening Night finally happened. Last night about 1,500 VIP guest were invited for an advanced shopping spree at the newest global fashion brand that is now available in the country!
I didn’t say a word about me going until the last minute because I was waiting for my “Golden Ticket” but apparently I didn’t get one. I have an e-invite to the shopping party so my ticket was face value!
I was one of the early birds so I was able to scale and scout the humongous red carpet area!
One of the major concern of my readers was how are the prices at H&M Philippines?
How are the prices at H&M Manila Philippines? Affordable than you can imagine!
VIP Shoppers of H&M Manila lining up at the cashier on the 1st floor. View from the 2nd floor
Without this wrist band you can’t shop!
Almost everyone you need to know from the Philippines fashion, entertainment, media and PR industry was there. But the shopping frenzy was more crazy than people watching so you may bump into a lot but no guts to take pic. So here are just my rare photo moments with people haha!
With Angela Nepomuceno, Ruth dela Cruz, Jackie Go, Christine Dychiao and Sophie Sumners of America’s Next Top Model!
See something you like? Go! Public opening is on October 17, 2014 and early birds get voucher of Php6,000.00 for tge first 200 if I am not mistaken.
I was asked if it is worth it to line up as early as 6am for the opening on Saturday, I say yes with Php2,000 you can get a lot of nice pieces depending on what items you buy. Basics starts at Php290.00 the highest I saw was Php2,090.00. You can get a nice bag with nice quality for Php2,000.00 or a pair of boots then get a basic tshirt.
As for the quality, the ones I saw were good, fabric was nice and stitching was ok. I just hope in the next coming days and weeks and months of H&M Manila Philippines, the quality will not detiriorate just like some other popular global brands in Manila most of them sell rubbish now.
Thank you H&M for the advanced shopping opportunity! I will definitely comeback. Thank you foe the lovely presents as well!
Forever 21 is always one of my go-to shop when I need a new piece to make my look updated or stylish but I will always be drawn at colors and prints or standout pieces.
When I was invited to play part at the makeover styling contest using the Forever 21 Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at the store relaunch event held at SM Megamall, what my makeover partner Catch made me wear would be some pieces I will use individually but will not put together myself. This would be my First x Forever (maipasok lang!)
Did you recognize me? Catch styled me like a tourist in Korea he said.
I like it, it was totally not my style but will try it once likr today. See I wouldn’t wear an entire black ensemble because my mom will kill me. She believe and feel like wearing an entire black ensemble is like someone mouring. The only exemption I wore an entire black ensemble was when we were mouring my father’s death 7 years ago. After a whole ywar of wearing black and white only I got tired of the dull black and the sad moment it symbolizes. So, because of that I wear more color or at least a splash of happy colors here and there in my outfit.
Now back to the styling contest. Yuki and Rhea team won the styling contest and I couldn’t agree more. Their style was fresh and chic with splashes of fall colors. Their style is something I will wear myself. Earth tones as they said.
Raisa and Tin wear streetstyle and preppy something. I didn’t hear their style explanation really coz I was at the backstage.
I was not able to take any photos that the real models wore at the First x Forever show but I grabbed some of the pics from Ruth dela Cruz, Sarah Tirona and Forever 21! Here they are:
If you want to see the Fall/Winter 21 collection upclose come visit the relaunched Forever 21 store at SM Megamall B and grab those new pieces to update your wardrobe. Or visit www.forever21.com.ph and shop online 24/7 #firstxforever.
