Some of you have asked where I got the clear paint buckets in my giveaway.
I got them from Beabi and it cost Php 295 each. A bit pricey, yes, but cute!
Last Christmas I used it to store my tools, as I wrapped gift in different parts of the house, like the bedroom, stock room and dining room. I would just pick up the bucket and everything would be handy.
The bucket can be used as swag bags or gift bags, like this expectant daddy kit made by Living Eventfully.
I just love putting together gift bags.
Beabi is the Philippines’ answer to Muji or Container Store.

Most of the time I like to clown around on Twitter. Like this afternoon I realized, why does Sam Ajdani follow Regina Belmonte and not me? So I decided to make this #jejetweet
The #jejetweet was a hit. Soon people were asking Sam to follow me
I even offered to throw in some prizes
Finally, after a few minutes:
Listen, I have no idea what Teddyboy Locsin’s #jejetweet was all about, but Sam Ajdani followed me!!
For those asking, Sam Ajdani is Manila’s model du jour—at least he has a small fan club of groupies who are ecstatic he joined Twitter. He also appeared in last month’s Metro magazine (January 2013 issue)
That said, here’s the promised giveaway: four buckets filled with colorful girly stuff
It includes: 1) Burlington foot products; 2) Goody hair accessories; 3) little Pupung clock from SOLO; 4) Team Manila zippered pouch; 5) Tokidoki eyeshadow set from Sephora; 6) Dylan’s Candy Bar reusable BAGGU tote bag; 7) New York subway map pen; 8) Spam tin case from Target.
1) Open to any follower with a Philippine-based shipping address
2) Must follow @chuvaness on Twitter or Instagram
3) Must register HERE.
4) Winners will be drawn by electronic lottery
5) Cutoff on Feb. 8, 2013 at 11:00 PM.
6) Winners will be announced here and on Twitter.
Last night after dinner at Serendra, I dragged Jeroen to the Herman Miller store on the second level.
Jeroen had never been up there. We looked at the SMEG refrigerators for a future house, some beautiful FLOS lamps, and finally this shop:
The Herman Miller showroom is very small and was relaunched last November 2012.
Jeroen really liked this setup
I liked the Airia media cabinet
There’s the iconic Nelson marshmallow sofa
The Eames molded plywood chair
The Eames wire chair
The Nelson coconut chairs
and finally the Eames Rocker—the real thing
So gorgeous, I’ve always wanted one. This was taken in Hong Kong in 2010
I thought I got a good deal when I found one in Beijing and brought it home
Then I found out last night that real Eames rockers are matte—not glossy—according to the lady in the showroom. No wonder it was affordable! So Ely, you and I have copies pala. Ngek!
Matte, not glossy. Bullet day, I’ll have a real one.
Visit Herman Miller on the 2nd Level of Serendra, Bonifacio Global City
