Swatch Saturday at Ronac

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

Harold’s best friend

A lot of people have been inquiring about “Harold’s best friend” which appeared in this photo.


Don’t worry. It’s a BlackBerry app called Ghost Camera. Random photos of ghostly figures come out as you take photos on your BlackBerry using the app. I took these photos in Singapore and scared the hell out of our hosts!


I’m so sorry!!


Imagine using the camera during a wake or on November 1st, or in a crypt or morgue.

ghost camera

Insanity! Really funny when you guys are telling ghost stories and you randomly take a picture and out this comes.
iPhone has a cool version of it too. Click here.
