VIDEO: Oishi’s big surprise from #TeamO #JeepO
Posted on

In my family, I was once voted most difficult to gift. Not my mom, not my dad. Me.
The truth is, I’m not that difficult to find a present for. Just give me something cute that I’ve never had. Such what landed at our front door today—a giant sack of Oishi chips!

I swear, Christmas isn’t complete without Oishi. Every year I look forward to their holiday Cuckoo bag, which are great for gift-giving

We don’t eat them everyday, but let’s get real: chips are nice to have around the house for a quick fix. Especially when everyone’s asleep. Nothing wrong in indulging every now and then.

One time, Oishi sent a giant pea and pork woven bags made of recycled materials

One bag had pork-based chips

and the other had the phenomenal vegetarian chicharon, which you must try if you still haven’t

Another time they sent a box of chips, taller than my 6-foot husband

Guests took home Oishi goodie bags filled with their favorite Prawn Crackers.

But nothing tops this giant Oishi bag we haven’t opened yet.
My son is such a ham. Just look at him.

Oishi recently launched an adorable new commercial featuring Team O’s Elmo Magalona, Ramon Bautista and Slater Young.
Watch what happens when they surprise unsuspecting jeepney riders around Metro Manila. Love this!

Special thanks to Franco Santos of Bridges PR for sending the surprise 🙂

H&M launches Isabel Marant collection in Paris
Posted on

Last Thursday, Audrey Tautou, January Jones, Freida Pinto, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Olga Kurylenko, Alice Dellal, Mélanie Doutey and Lou Lesage gathered in Paris to celebrate the launch of the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection.
The collection was presented in cinematic settings that mixed images, films and models, with live performances by Grandmaster Melle Mel and Rappers Delight, originally of Sugarhill Gang.

The event transported guests to a street slice of Paris in the early ’90s, when Isabel debuted her eponymous line.
“We wanted to present the collection in a way that felt real and casual, not a red-carpet extravaganza: this is how I see my work. I design for everybody and am constantly inspired by the world I see around me, so it felt natural to have an urban setting as the backdrop of the event. And it had to be Paris, because the city is part of my DNA,” says Isabel Marant.

“This street celebration was the perfect way to launch a collection that oozes the energy of cool Parisian style. It felt optimistic and real: a reflection of Isabel Marant’s knack for urban sophistication and bohemia. I think the collection for women, men and teen captures her spirit and I hope our customers are as excited as we are for the launch,” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor at H&M.
