Macha Green Tea Fair returns to Royce’
Posted on

This April, the Maccha Green Tea selection comes back to Royce’ chocolate stores.
After a successful run last year, the Maccha Green Tea Fair returns with your favourites, including maccha-flavored chocolate wafers—green tea in rich cream, sandwiched between crunch wafers and covered in machha cholocate.
The result is a rich, creamy, bittersweet taste in one perfect bite.

Roycé

Maccha green tea and Royce’ chocolate combinations will still be available, including Royce’s Maccha Almond Chocolate, Prafeuille Chocolate Maccha, and Nama Chocolate Maccha.

Roycé

Maccha is a fine, bright green, talc-like powder that is produced when dried tea leaves are stone-ground.
Produced under the most meticulous conditions, maccha is said to be packed with antioxidants that help boost metabolism and reduce cholesterol levels.

Find Maccha Almond Chocolate, Prafeuille Chocolate Maccha, Nama Chocolate Maccha, and Maccha-flavored Chocolate Wafers this April in Royce’ shops at Greenbelt 5, PowerPlant Mall, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, The Podium, and at the Cake Club in Bonifacio Global City.

Return of the It bag
Posted on

Oh my. Just when we thought It bags were dead and were just too happy to carry a Goyard, Herve Chapelier, or even an LL Bean tote—comes the new Chanel bags for Spring-Summer 2014.
I didn’t think it was my type until I saw the pictures on the website and they are just WOW.

I’m not a backpack person, so I’m more likely to get this—if I could ever get my hands on it—who knows?

As for girls who prefer the classic Chanel flap, this one looks like art

I should’ve checked while I was in Tokyo, but there was so much to do, so little time.

Welcome to our studio, Part 2
Posted on

Dear Rob,
It took us ages to renovate the apartment for several reasons:
1) I had to find the right designer.
2) The Philippe Starck toilet was so much cheaper from Amazon and had to be shipped here.
3) Kellyn and Rex, the designers, had to leave for Australia for a few months.
4) The TV cable had to be relocated.
5) The lamps had to be relocated.
6) The wallpaper was ordered from the UK.
7) The lamps came from Hong Kong.
8) The beds had to be specially ordered from Kristine Dee. Etc.

Here’s the work in progress:
The ledge had the least problems—except when the cushions we ordered were too big and had to be redone.

Window and ledge

I’m happy with our small kitchenette. Though we don’t want to cook inside. We do have a microwave oven, coffee maker, and rice cooker, just in case.

Kitchenette

This study area was inspired by a stay at Hong Kong’s former JIA Hotel (now J-Plus). My idea was to create a hotel feel—therefore, no cooking, just minibar, refrigerator and simple appliances

Studio

The bed area had to be redesigned. I felt the wooden board made the place look smaller, so I had it removed and turned into a ledge.

The bathroom had to be re-done three times before it was chuva-approved. The workers broke the sink by accident so I had to buy another one

After two years, it was time to move in! Yes, it took that long. I’m not a trained interior designer so it was hard to make decisions.

The amber sticker was ordered from Amazon, for bathroom privacy, in addition to blinds.
The idea I got from Singapore’s Quincy Hotel

Putting up the amber sticker

The wallpaper was ordered from the UK, inspired by yoo by Philippe Starck

Shang studio

This is my work area, with books, knick knacks, and a portrait of Chloe Sevigny by Terry Richardson

The lamps are by Innermost UK. The animal stool is from Dimensione, and the Kartell Mademoiselle chairs by Philippe Starck were purchased from Dexterton.

Only 38 square meters. I want to design spaces for a sideline!

The bathroom is tiny, but chuva-approved, with counter sink, wall-mount Duravit x Philippe Starck toilet, and glass enclosed-shower

Unfortunately the bathroom emits a funky smell—perhaps because it isn’t used often?
Someone please tell me what to do about it.
My hubby waiting for me to finish taking pictures for my blog. Not only is he hard-working, he is an angel.

Here’s a funny selfie we took some time ago. We plan to have movie dates/sleepovers here with the boys and popcorn.

One day I will list our apartment for rent online. Here’s the key to my one-room hotel.
In the future, maybe I will have my own little hotel.

Love, Me
