The night before, this box arrived from Tita Virgie Ramos of Swatch Philippines.
I was happy because if it’s from Tita Virgie, it has to be awesome. I was sad because I wish it were Christmas na!!
But of course I opened it. Inside was this metal case
It’s not heavy (according to Jeroen)
It is the one of the most awesome Swatch collections ever—an eight-piece collab with Kidrobot and eight pop artists.
The Frank Kozik dunny fits right in our home
Here’s the complete Kidrobot x Swatch collection
and the matching dunnies
That night we headed off to Ronac Art Center for the official launch of Kidrobot x Swatch. And we’re always excited whenever there’s a reason to go to Ronac. Spotted at Secret Fresh Gallery: Jeroen, Charlie, Bigboy, and Robert
Sonny, Divine, Victor, Matt, Jake, David, Pam, Doj
Kerin and Kevin
Ryan, Garovs, and Sharon
Grace and Rowell
Our Swatches from different collections
It’s always a pleasure when Bigboy tours us around his space. We went up to the art gallery (Ang sarap lang mag picture-taking dito!!)
We viewed the current exhibition, featuring Vomit Boy
This piece is almost 3-D
Went up to the Uratex Premium Mattress Gallery
Yup, we could’ve had a sleepover!
Jeroen and I tried the Uratex memory foam mattress, which is lovely
This high-end mattress was like clouds okay
Oooh, they have Scatola by Rajo Laurel! These are the BEST things ever. I just ordered my second one.
Passed by the basketball court
and invited Giorgio to Ben + Arkin’s birthday party at Ronac next month
Met Boo of Shabby’s
And back to the Swatch event
and shared truffle fries with Tita Virgie, Aileen, Vivien, plus Rowell and Borgy
Oh, and the night wasn’t over! Had a second dinner at my brother Dennis’s party at home. Lechon for the win!
