Just because I feel sexy on a gloomy Wednesday afternoon...
You definitely can't stop me from feeling this way.

Hail to the Queen! Lifestyle Asia recently celebrated its 26th anniversary with a Royal Gala honoring The Queen Mother of Bhutan, Her Majesty Ashi Tshering Pem Wangchuck.
After a plate of lentil and eggplant salad, Tshoem beef cheek with oyster mushroom, Bhutanese coconut panna cotta and free-flowing chardonnay and champagne courtesy of Moet and Terrazas wines, Boston-based yet Manila-
raised DJ Katrina “Katsunami” Razon kicked the night with intoxicating
beats from the 90’s getting everyone the mood to stand and hit the dance
Who knew partying with actual royalty could be so much fun? I mean, seeing Her Majesty dance to the tune of Dancing queen – you just got my applause!

Fashion and society fixtures such as Rossana Ocampo - Rodriguez, Ingrid Chua-Go, Maurice Arcache, Tessa Prieto – Valdes and Jewelmer’s Janthina Fong all looked impeccably stunning.

Congratulation on yet another successful event, I have got to hand it to Cheryl Tiu, Ms. Anna Sobrepena and the team of Lifestyle Asia. *hic* I think I had too much lychee martini .

I have always been a big believer in dressing for travel whether I am headed to the sun-drenched island of Palawan, Boracay, Bali or wherever there are palm trees, nearby provinces like Zamboanga, Davao, Bacolod or Batangas, or jetting off to a buttoned-up business meeting in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta or Hong-Kong, a fashionable arrival is not just encouraged, it’s a must.
Comfortable enough but put together, functional yet chic, one great example of a style-minded globetrotter is Phat Guido, the man behind the Most Exherent Brog – he has clearly mastered the art of airport dressing.
I am no Samantha Brown but sometimes, I have dreams of tailing Anthony Bourdain around wherever he goes (for good food haha).
Now, what to pack for spring?
