The Art of Mokume Gane


Save the date. 2 days only!



Birthdays at Bellevue and the Show

It was Johnny Litton's and Bellevue Hotel Chairman Mr. Johnny Chan's joint birthday celebration last August 12, 2009. The party was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Bellevue Hotel in Alabang. It was also the launching of our newest collection, the "Mokume Gane"

Dear Husband brought our small camera so some photos taken are not the best kind to scoop who's who around. But I tell you, we were surrounded by Manila's most famous people, politicians, socialites, philanthropist, and all famous media writers. Some guests are controversial too :) What a fun night and the show was a success.

Iron Man

Advance congratulations to my cousins in law Edwin C., Trevor T., Zachary C. who's joining the 1st IronMan Philippines at Cam Sur this August 23! They are doing the relay. Edwin is going to run, Trevor is doing bike while Zach is swimming.

Guys, you make our clan proud!


Fashion Show Rehearsal

HOSEKI was invited by Mr. Johnny Litton to be part of his birthday celebration. We found a perfect occasion to launch our newest line "Mokume Gane". I will tell more about the new line in the future post.

Some of the photos during the fashion show rehearsal.

Show Director Marex Gaba. Look at him teaching the model how to pose. He's a genius.



The model at the back in black tank top is Analu Araujo. She's Brazilian and became Pond's and Double Mint commercial model. By looking at her profile she's one of the hottest model in town and across Asia. She is stunning even without make-up. The Japanese clogs/slipper is handmade by my super talented business partner Fai Co.

Watch..

I Cried Buckets Today

Kris A's eulogy is so moving. I like it especially when she is honoring her siblings. This is how we should honor and appreciate our siblings, while they are still living. If not now, when? Don't wait before it's too late...

Ackward Moment

Watch this video and look at the awkward silence & body language of GMA and Noynoy. At least they both did their part, being civil.
