Hello! I’m nominated for the Globe Tatt Awards’ Stylissimo category.
For the last three days I’ve been subtly asking for votes though I know from experience it’s impossible to win against Divine Lee’s numbers. Just take a look at this pie chart, where I am orange.

It’s a given that Divine will win the online voting, but since online scores are only 30% and 70% will come from the judges’ decision, I have a chance.
Three of these people are my friends. Divine used to model for me at Grocery in the ’90s. In fact, we discovered her!
Robbie comes fresh from Australia, doesn’t know a lot of people yet. He is a sweetheart and modeled for me when I styled for Muji last week. Laureen Uy is Robbie’s girlfriend, another sweetheart and last year’s winner of Stylisimo. I have not met Camille Co, but I think she’s really cute.

I have no idea what’s at stake. Last year the winners took home Php 100,000 each.
If there is a prize money this year, it will go to Mang Siniong’s fund. My dream is to buy my driver a house after 20 years of service. I am lucky indeed to have Mang Siniong.
That said, I don’t know if there is money involved, but it’s worth a shot.

Would you please vote for me?
Voting is until June 20 only. You can vote once every hour for one candidate only in just one category.

Is it safe to go to Uniqlo now?

Judging from these opening day photos, I think not.

Uniqlo's first day at MOA

“I was there at 9 AM and the 94th customer!,” tweeted @houstonaddix. “By the time the store opened at 10am, line was very long na! Met Nikki Gil.”
“I arrived 10:20 AM and had to wait an hour to get in. Buti na lang I knew what I wanted to buy na,” said @rianski.

Uniqlo's first day at MOA

My friend Catherine was there around 2 PM and found this line. She had her driver queue for her while she waited at a nearby Starbucks.

So scary. I wanted to come back and buy more AIRism lounge pants in large. But maybe I’ll come back next week when the promo is over. On a weekday. Or maybe I’ll just wait for the other 49 stores to open. :)
