Visit to the Rogue office

I dropped by the headquarters of Rogue magazine before leaving for New York.
I love seeing cool work spaces, even more when there are cool people working there.
I worked in the newsroom of Daily Globe back in the ’90s. The office was on Shaw Boulevard. I have lots of good memories there, though the office didn’t look anything like this.

I love old staircases

This is the first thing I saw.

Paolo Reyes is the Editor-In-Chief. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a Louis Vuitton junket in Bangkok earlier this year. Over dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, Paolo mentioned a story they wanted to do at Rogue and asked if I were willing to go on the record and be interviewed.

Here’s the busy main area.

In one corner are some coño problems—just kidding :)

And around it are a few personal office spaces

I like this room, it makes me sleepy though :)

Just before I left I saw the happy couple Mark Nicdao and Pia Zaragoza, who is visiting from Paris.

Mark Nicdao shot this month’s cover, which should be out in magazine stands this week. Buy it before it gets sold out.
If you thought the Birkin scammer was juicy, you would not want to miss this!

September Rogue

For those overseas, the September issue of Rogue will also be available for download at Zinio.com. Watch for it!

    That so-called exposé is a dud. Its wild accusations are unsubstantiated and quoted people who have obviously an axe to grind against Bryan Boy. Any serious investigative journalism would have included interviews with law enforcement officials who are experts on credit card fraud. That Brian uses credit cards with variants of his name is no proof that he is involved in fraudulent activities. Any smart card holder must make it a point to have a list of all their credit card numbers for security reasons. If their card/s is/are lost or stolen, they can easily reference it when calling their bank/s to report the loss. The article made a big stink about Bryan having such a list, based on the biased observation of a woman traveling companion who now hates Brian. Bryan is an original and his success story is the fulfillment of yet another American Dream. He is a hit in the US because he personifies the embodiment of American rugged individualism. He marches to the beat of his own drums. Respected publications like The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times continue to run mostly positive stories about him. In fact, WSJ just interviewed him at the start of fashion week in New York. Do you think if this credit card story has legs, these publications would not have pursued it like crazy?

    Hi Ms C! I was just wondering if your “chuvaness.com” logo is an original concept as there is a restaurant near our university in Taft with almost exactly the same logo (the font, the color, the lines above and beneath, and the wooden background too). Check out http://extrariceph.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/toribox/

    Kakaloka. Kakaloka. very Gucci Gang. You and Cedric told me, but I remained neutral after my phone call to him reminding him, but the boy pleaded his case. I haven’t seen you after the NAIA 1 at the Shang. I just hope you didn’t think I changed sides. I don’t know him from Adam…. but wanted peace na lang, after that interview of me came out of me warned him. Well I haven’t read the rogue article Santa Cecila and I wont. But you need to know where my heart is. On pluto cat on earth. See you soon. The Revenge of the Amazons ( my painting was called Brenda says hello )

    I was wondering when all this will catch up on him. He seems so Teflon-like. Matagal ng lumabas yung issue Nya about credit card fraud, but he’s still at it I suppose. :( has he been back to the Philippines? Or he is never coming back here kaya? He did come out in a Spark mag cover, right?

    Is it just me or the girl on the cover is really Photoshopped? Her body looks really weird, with a very short and disproportional torso.

    Every season I wonder what Louis Vuitton Handbags will create. I know I won’t like everything, but I can count on Louis Vuitton to make a few bags that are absolutely lust-worthy, it’s just what they do. When we shared a closer look at their Spring 2012 collection, I remember not being entirely impressed. Of course there was a theme – lightness and femininity paired with a whimsical touch – but as many have said, the bags look like they are made out of plastic (which they aren’t, just look at the price tags).
    But nestled into this collection is a perfect summer piece, the Louis Vuitton Speedy North South bag. Nautical blue and cream calfskin leather offset one another in a take on the 
    Louis Vuitton Online Outlet house classic.

    he’s being “ambisyoso” and social-climbing act paved way for him to secure a slot in the current season of ANTM (or baka naman nilakad niya ‘to at the same time, hehe).  we’re supposed to be proud he’s a Pinoy making way in the international scene.  but he’s hey days, and how badly he gained he’s popularity is still haunting him.  this month’s Rogue is intriguing. why the hell this bad ass blogger (trasher) is making headlines?
    on a lighter note, your ” some coño problems ” really got me! general term talaga? ahaha

    Ms. C, this article of your might get some tongues wagging na naman as to why you are encouraging people to buy it.  Interesting. Nga pala, you have your own page sa female network Girl talk page.

    It’s about freakin’ time that the entire Philippines knew about the truth about Bryanboy. The fact that he’s probably the most well-known Pinoy in the international fashion blogging scene makes me shake my head in shame.

    I used to frequent his blog when it was still a novelty but gave up due to the bad grammar and aimless rambling (bragging).

    Back 1998, a received a call from a friend inviting me to join them at Manila Pen’s Presidential Suite for the weekend. I came after school on Friday, we were in high school at this time. He took us all (about 8 of us, all girls from various private all girls schools) shopping at Glorietta/Quad for our Friday night gimik outfits – as in head to toe outfits. There was never ending room service and champagne back in the hotel. We took the car service everywhere that whole weekend. He would charge everything to the room, anything he could, he would. Lots of shenanigans. I didnt find it that odd that someone has that much money – this is Manila afterall. Buuuuuut…3-4 days after the “weekend get away” there were hotel people at my parent’s house, they were investigating a cc fraud that happened over the weekend = it turns out this guys was using fake credit cards the whole time. The bill was about P150,000.
    I never saw/heard from Brian again after that one weekend I met him….not until he came into prominence when his blog exploded. So now, I just laugh at people who seem to be in awe of him, if they only knew. Kadiri.

    Ever since the unfortunate Rogue experience of my friend some years ago, I haven’t bought the magazine since then. This issue, which promises to reveal the truth behind Bryanboy, will mark my return to Rogue. I can’t wait to get my copy! :)
