NEW ADDRESS !!!

you know you're getting older when you frequently have brunch with friends
than late night partying... :)
so yes, i started Saturday with brunch, which was a total effort in my case cos i normally sleep at 2-4 in the morning. (i know, i need to limit my fb, youtube, & blogger addiction in order to sleep earlier *pfft*)
good thing the place my friend picked was pretty decent and relaxing...
it's like an extension to my room and is a smaller version of Memory Lane in Tagaytay.
The interior is very light & shabby chic, i think it was the Heima group who did the interior
of this place, cos some of the items are very similar/familiar to the store.
and don't you just loooove that pink SMEG fridge at the background? aaah i would want to have one of those in my house! if budget permits lol. its way too expensive for me now.
how the Philippines GOT SO INTO cottage style/ shabby chic interiors i don't know.
it fits my personal taste for now, so i'm not complaining :)
but i hope i don't get tired with the look, since more and more shops are looking the same way now... :)
have a great weekend!
nappy time :)

whew! i can't believe it's almost a month now since the start of construction. we started working in this venue that was originally a warehouse/ storage house and now the progress is unbelievable! anyway, back to our booth...
as i've mentioned before, the theme of our exhibit is Sustainability.
and we're assigned to create a Dining Room that is 60-80% made of Plastic!
i know right?
but here's the progress so far :)
i'm really happy how the mural has turned out :) it's so refreshing, and the logs i think fits perfectly too. we're trying to create a space that doesn't literally look like "the plastic booth", we want people to stop and guess for a while what our booth theme is.
so we made our design, Earth Friendly - Nature Inspired, to contradict how plastics are perceived as something that kills the planet earth slowly... mmm
and having installed these ceiling design made of PVC is actually a breather... YEAH. its THAT crucial you.could.kill.yourself.anytime. :p
wait for it.... :)

my cousin & cousin-in-law arranged this setting for our friend's wedding reception/waiting area. i love how they mixed elegance through porcelain with the free-spirited flowers and craft papers.
the antique dresser/console is from the bride's home.
dimsum and takeaways anyone? :)
pre-nup pictures of the couples
Suy folded each and every fortune cookie for the guests to pick during registration. Some revealed prizes :) There's also a crossword puzzle for guests to fill up while waiting for the event to start, and of course, colorful pencils :)
we just love styling for events & parties :)
more on Table Setting
some items i scored for only Php500 (USD11.30) in total :)
yes, some luck i had from being stuck in the heavy rain... i was caught standing for more than 40minutes (inside a small tent along the street who sells wooden carved items) because my car's parked in the other block!
the weather was crazy! but i can't be more than happy with the good deal :)
1. the deer
this is so cute! i'm planning to paint this and use it as a lamp stand :) ala J. Adler style :)
2. the horse
if you knew me personally, you'll know that i have this horse (sculpture) fetish... :) been wanting to have one of those since one of my trips in China, but it was too expensive! i'm realllly happy to get this at a bargain!
3. the tray
this tray is perfect on its own. i want to use this as a tray table :) and/or probably place a mirror inside too
4. carved "seaside"
trust me, i've already washed this couple of times already! i'll be hanging this in my bathroom after painting, maybe :)
so yeah, everything you see here were all drenched with (rain)water that night... my mom was really annoyed cos she said i brought home trash. LOL

i woke up at 7am today, which is pretty odd cos i never wake that early! but i have to clean my room/ try my best to make it look decent for a magazine feature :)
(it would be featured in Cosmo PH's November issue :)
my room has still a lot of stuff pending (i'm not completely done with it yet!) but a week's notice wasn't enough to manufacture the bench-of-my-dreams, and other furniture i've been sketching in my head for some time now (-.-) i declined the offer at first, but had second thoughts since i realized it wasn't an interior/design magazine anyway, so any flaws can pass for now :)
excited how the shots are gonna turn out soon :)
with Ms. Chinggay Labrador of Cosmo Philippines :)
