Hog wild!


This film pretty much sums up the overall feeling for the past weeks.

Can we forward to next week? Please?

Because they Ken-zo!


Yes! The question on everyone's heads has finally been answered!

This year's H&M collaboration is with Kenzo!

I can feel the hipsters jumping up and down from here.

True as it can be...

I'm a huge, huge, huge fan of the Disney animated film. I saw the original one on the big screen, then bought the VHS (look it up, kids), then bought the CD and DVD. Now, I can't wait for the live action retelling this 2017.



Almost a year of waiting! I can't stand it!

Hang on a bit!

There's a new Julia Roberts and George Clooney film, and it's directed by Jodie Foster!



Take my money! Please!

Back from the past

I remember sketching this dress for Ate Bullet about 2 years ago. It was after I found this beautiful, watercolor print fabric at Fabric Warehouse, and wanted to make something out of it. I ended up drawing a flowy gown with a deep-V front and back, and I added a very long velvet ribbon as a belt.

Now, around 2 years after, Ate was finally able to wear the dress to a wedding.


It still looks as fresh as the day I sketched it. That's how classics are supposed to be.

FMM: Two times the woman

It's quite common for songs to be sung by two different artists. They're called remakes.

Oftentimes, though, these remakes are spaced years apart. Think a decade or two, such as in the case of "You were always on my mind" by Elvis Presley in the 70s, and The Pet Shop Boys in the 80s.

But there are a select few songs where the remake is just a few years apart.

Case in point, one of my favorite songs: "More than a woman."

Two groups sang this ditty in the 70s. Each group had its own style, and they sang it distinctly. But in both cases, they sang it beautifully!

Version 1: Tavares.



Version 2: The Bee Gees. From that classic film, "Saturday Night Live."



I'm glad there are 2 versions of this song. At least I get 2 times the enjoyment.

They've Hadid!

Unlike Kamiseta who suddenly went back to using a local celebrity to endorse its brand, Penshoppe is continuing its legacy of signing-up international celebrities and influencers as image models.

Their latest recruit - Gigi Hadid! Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Gigi Hadid is one of the new generation of fashion influencers.



Props to Penshoppe for being consistent in their endorser choices. After Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, Lucky Blue Smith and Sandara Park, Gigi is definitely a worthy addition.

Going Loco

Suddenly, I missed the Fan-tastic Chicken burger that they used to sell at McDonald's HKG back in 2007.

Too bad they never re-issued that product again. I'll so totally buy it!

In the meantime, I'll just comfort myself watching this.



I'll just swap the beef patty with chicken or fish, and I'm all set.

All smiles!


No wonder this team is all smiles.

Apart from the product we're working on, it's also because this bunch of people are a joy to work with.

Can't wait to see the final commercial. I'm sure it'll bring a smile to a lot of peoples' faces.
