Vilebrequin for the Yap Men.

Dear Yap Men,

When I learned that you are going to South Africa soon, I suddenly worried about what you were going to bring in your luggage. I mean, aside from your toiletries and shoes.

You guys are always and forever wearing suits and a fancy tie to work and I am not sure if you are prepared to what's in store in South Africa.

Ok, I admit, I have never been...and yes, maybe I am a bit bitter about that fact but still, because you adopted me into your family, I have a right to make you fashionable even when lions are contemplating on eating you guys.

So, here's the deal. I researched on what's to do in SA and I couldn't believe the beautiful beaches they have there! I suggest that if you go to one, because I think you should.

So I want you to wear fashionable swim clothes by Vilebrequin.

Land of magic… Land of contrast… Africa is a world full of emotions, high in colors, with primitive sensations for a return to the source, to our ancestral roots. The one that reminds us that Africa is the cradle of humanity.

A safari ticket, towards a fascinating and enchanting land. An initiatory journey towards the discovery of wild animals: elephants, giraffes, and Numidia guineas.

Crossing the savanna landscape with its majestic scenery, flowery baobabs…

Then make a stop to the large beaches of thin sand full of sea lions and shells or navigate in the trail of whales.

Meet a woman from the famous Ndebele village known for its pictorial art or share the hospitality of a Bambara hut while contemplating the sunset.

A trip for the amateurs of the wild, big spaces and adventures. The dream of a total change of scenery.

Southern Africa... This season Vilebrequin takes us into the thick of a thrilling safari. Amidst bird calls you see landscapes saturated with a rich palette of endless colors and lights that range from the paleness of dawn over the still savanna to the incandescence of the sun setting on the Okavongo Delta. It is a journey ripe with sensations.

Vilebrequin has designed next summer's swimsuits:
Cape Town’s Fur Seals, the elephants of the Namib Desert, giraffes from the Tanzanian plains, majestic hundred year old baobab trees, and of course, the Namibian guinea fowl.

Around the bend of a trail we head for the villages of Ndebele, famed for their pictorial art, to hear even more legends whispered around a campfire. We gather inspiration not only from the wall paintings that decorate their huts which only woman are allowed to create, but also from their pagnes, a textile crafted from “wax” fabric which dates to the arrival of the first Europeans in western Africa.

Vilebrequin: a collection designed like a voyage of discovery through the African bush...

Think about it.



In the Philippines, VILEBREQUIN is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and is located at Greenbelt 5 and Rustan’s Makati.

Alice and Grace.



When you see the circle of friends of Alice and Grace, you would never think that they are one of the few groups of mine, that I can make full use of my gay talk skill. In other words, fellow badings ko ang mga to.

Now don't get me wrong. It's not jejemon talk. It's what I call parlor talk. With that said, I will mix my parlor talk with a bit of English on this post because I still want to please my foreign readers. NAKS!! ZOZZY!!

Anyway, bonggang bongga yung party ni Ate Alice sa Dasma. I felt kawawa with our car because we parked it next to all sorts of Benz, Audi, BMW, Porche and Jaguar. Chaka ng car namin ni AG. I won't say na what car we brought...mamaya stalk niyo pa ako. BWA HA HAHA!!

The house is brand new. New floors, new walls, new roof, new ceiling, new kitchen...LAHAT BAGO! Not only was it new, the house was HUGE!!! Ok, the story is...she lived in the house next door. You know the lots in Dasma, they are cut so huge as it is right? Well, when her neighbor decided to sell their lot, she bought it, tore the wall down and built her new house on that lot. So basically, the old house is now the POOL house...because now, she has 2 pools in one lot. ANO BA YAN!! ANAK ng DIYOS talaga!!

What I noticed first about the house though were the flower arrangements. You know naman how flowers remind me of Mom so yun yung una kong nakita. Siyempre MABOLO lang naman. O DIBA? KLAZZZ!!!

I had to take the tour around the mansion para naman ma-imagine ko what it's like to be a gazillionaire. She hasn't moved in yet. Like my Mom, she is waiting for the right position of the moon before moving in. Check this out.

Just one of the swimming pools.

UMM, ano...sabi sa inyo bongga eh!!! But wait, there's also the food spread. Florabel, part owner of FELIX was there to make mando-mando her staff. Grabe naman sa sobrang sarap and efficient yung mga waiters! Panalo!

Si Leo Posadas, hindi ko ma-hire hire dahil medyo mahal siya. Sikat kasi eh and sobrang galing. Gulat ko lang when I saw him doing the make up of Small for this party.

The beautiful people that attended and showed their love to Grace and Alice.

We were entertained by Shayne and the Brown Union, my favorite band in Salon De Ning. I actually just watched them the night before and was surprised to see them again.
Ms. Pops Fernandez looking hot!!
She sang a few songs for the crowd! We all loved it. Free concert! Nasaan na si Martin when you need him?

Your bloggerina with friends.

Happy Happy Birthday Ate Alice and Grace!!! AG and I had a wonderful time!! Next time, hihiram ako ng BENZ sa Peninsula para maka-level naman ako. HAHAHA!!!
