Bangok Preview

I'm obsessed about that alien.

We got to see this really cool exhibit.

Between the rush from here and there Kawadjan and I had the time to werq the DP Kawadjan cardigan I gave him. He's also wearing a DP reworked tee.

We also had to 'travel' for this charming restaurant of his friend. We too a cab, rode the BTS, took another cab, rode a tuktuk to arrive there. Don't mind Kawadjan's lockjaw pose. You do know why it's like that, non? He's back to normal, thankfully.

Really charming place.

That alien is so inspiring.

As well as Bubu Bear and Cherry (that is what I call it).

and this weird chair.

Then I attended the Bangkok Church of Christ for the first time.

And saw the new location of wwa.

And enjoyed wonderful dimsum with K at Marina.

See K's account here of my Bangkok visit.

Will update more soon.

Eric Raisina's Love for Silk

Last week the day before I went to Bangkok I attended the opening exhibit of the inspiring works of silk by Eric Raisina.
Fresh from showing in New York, he's back in Siem Reap to share the pieces that he showed there. Eric with her muse Sray Pov, a Cambodian supermodel in the making.
Eric's genius is really the wonderful textiles he designs.
Amazing pieces!
It's all hand worked so it's really chic.
One chic bride would look stunning on this white ensembles.
I dubbed this as the 'phoenix'.
The McDermott Gallery played host to the exhibit and AHA of Hotel de la Paix served the delish cocktails.

Birthday Ko

Several full moons ago, after midnight, early morning of my birthday, I got a pleasant surprise when Loven and Olive presented me with a cake made of pandan and strawberry spongebars on a bed of ice cream.

It's soooooooooooooo cute!

Spent the day tending to our pop-up shop at Lucky Mall. The Margiela tee I'm wearing was given by Marvin.

Later in the evening after we closed I was surprised to see this 1941 Citroen parked outside the mall. I even excitedly asked who owned the wonderful vehicle. I didn't realize it was going to be my ride for the night!

Sarah, Olive and Loven were the culprits! They had Indian dessert and wine waiting. It was so chic being driven around town with wine and nibbles. I changed to my One Hidden Agenda top and hurriedly grabbed my Y'saacs. It felt so good, palanggas!

Here's moi with Sarah.

Not a limo but I have to start from somewhere, right?

We had dinner at La Volpaia. Loven, moi and Savorn.

Moi with Olive and Sarah.

This is the cake they gave me. My 4th one, actually.

Apres, it was drinks at Ms. Wong.

There I discovered the amazing lemongrass cooler cocktail. Yum!

It was quite intimate since there's just 5 of us. Kinda like it that way, a change from my usual birthday when I'm in Iloilo.

The next day I was feted by my Bible study group, another surprise! That's the 5th cake I received, already. Fat alert but I just had to taste, non? Anyway, it was my birthday so I'm excused.

Cielo, Blady and their son Bryce. They were so gracious to have my party at their house and they cooked a vegetarian kare-kare for me.

Back at the hotel my co-workers gave me my 6th cake, a delish chocolate cream cake.

It's so nice to feel remembered on my birthday and I really appreciate all my friends going out of their way to prepare everything to perfection. I didn't have a clue and I was so surprised everytime. Thank you, all!
