You know how earlier this year I was invited by the University of San Carlos Technological Center’s College of Architecture and Fine Arts (USC-TC CAFA) to be stylist mentor to a couple of their graduating Fashion Design students (class of 2013)?

Wanna hear a funny/sad story? Alrighty then, here it goes: Where were you when the nearly 7-magnitude earthquake hit Cebu (and the neighboring island of Negros) some eight months back (I think it was on February 6)?

I myself (and I am not getting engaged or married […]Read more "If You’re Young at Heart: Chito and Tuesday"
