There are parties that go on all night, every night, all night. If that’s the way you want to live, you never need to see the sun. Or you can be asleep at 10 every night and be up at 6, and never see the night life.
And each one is cool and everyone just does their own thing here. Manila has a way of becoming a real home. It can be the most messed-up place in the world but trust me, it can also be the most amazing.

I finally got my energy back after mom’s funeral last March and launching two stores the past six  months. I also have been working on a few projects in-between while taking care of an eight-month old spoiled schnauzer.
Enough about work! Yes, call me nosy (Thanks to Instagram!), but whether it’s seeking imaginative solutions for updating our own home, checking out how the other half live, or just taking pleasure in a good old snoop, obsessing about other people’s house style is one of the great pastime of modern life.
Today, we have plenty of space to ogle, from the pages of ELLE Decoration to Veranda, Domino and House Beautiful. There’s a modern riverside apartment, which layers pattern and color on to a blank canvas, creating  the ultimate in urban glamour to bungalows that are in perfect pitch with the owners’ lifestyle.
My parents always tells me to be myself and the same holds true in your home – be honest about what you love because it is always important to be charmed and seduced by where you live. I definitely agree!
(My apartment always smells good – eucalyptus and Frangipani are two of my favorite scents.)
Previously, I used to use colors quiet forcefully, but now, as I’ve grown up, I realize that less is more.

Back with no agenda, it really is all about finding the calm in the chaos.
Despite the fact that the city is usually ridiculed like the Gobi when it comes to arts and culture, there are in fact places where you can breathe art and savour culture in the city.
Fast forward. I’m skipping Art Basel this year for Maison Objet and I promise to update Buddha regularly. Stay tuned and yes, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
