I Support Bloggers United

Me and JP Singson, owner of Unisex

I love shopping, fashion, bloggers and helping kids out and thus I support Bloggers United.
I came there ALONE around 7:30pm because I was hoping Lawryeng would accompany me there, oh well he had a pretty good reason though for not coming. As soon as I got there I went looking for items for men unfortunately there were so few, I couldn't even find David Guison's store anymore and I regret that I didn't buy any of his good stuff, better luck next time I guess.

Though i was not able to find David's, I was able to find JP Singson's really great store. I got to buy 5 items from him probably because he was also good with his sales-talk and I tell you he is very good! I really wanted to buy something from Unisex as well but I didn't have the money to purchase them at that moment but I was really dying not to buy any from it. As soon as I get to have the money I swear I will contact him right away and buy, hopefully he would still be here in the Philippines because he told me he will be going to Paris next month for Fashion Week, I love travelling and I envy him for that.
Make sure to check out Unisex I know you you will like 'em and check out his works also at Status Mag under Style ID and of course his Blog.

I get to meet Paul Jatayna again and had a great time having a good conversation with him, such a cool guy. I was ought to buy OS from him until I found out that I got my money spent already so I promised him that I will buy some other time and that I will also have my friends buy from him as well. Ever since I laid eyes  on OS I am very interested to buy one, luckily I found out that it wasn't really that expensive at all now I am definitely encouraged.
Check out his Blog and Lookbook so ya'll can find out!

You might be wondering what I have purchased that night. Well keep wondering! I will have it kept secret but these are really awesome clothes that I get to buy all of 'em for only 1,400php. I know, cool right!?
I am hoping they will do this for like twice a year.
Congratulations for a very successful event!

What I am wearing:
Gray Long-sleeves inverted collar (Dean&Trent), Copper Jeans (Penshoppe), Gray Shoes (Happy Feet) and my trusted time keeper (Rolex).

John Robert Powers: Powersnet

This is what you will see when you visit Powersnet, at least as of the moment. 

This is what I won from them. Cool right?

What we ate. I love the crab sticks.

Present winners.

Mr. Javi Vargas, Michael Angelo, Ralph Calapine and me.

So here's how we won these cool cameras. Powersnet organized a contest among its community, Powernet's posts are categorized into each: DIY - Do It Yourself, in this category people may post something that we can do also with its systematic step by step procedures, Finds - now if ever we get to see something interesting in the market whether it may be clothing, food, gadgets, etc. we may share it in this category, Ask/Say - this is used if ever you would like to inquire something or probably share an insight to the community, lastly Spotted - where you post people's picture probably on what/how they wear things, what they are doing in the picture or just anything.
So the contest was to post in the category of Spotted and get the most likes from the community. As for me, I think I have posts where I get to have 6 up to 16 likes, so thank you to all those people who liked my posts there!

Powersnet is an emerging community powered by John Robert Powers, with their Brand Ambassadors that surely justifies each category you will really find it interesting and be fond of the whole concept. I am just way to eager to find out what would happen more with the site because I know it is bound to improve more and will be catering more than what it does as of the moment.

John Robert Powers is an institution that enhances skills and talents like Singing, Dancing, Acting, Modelling, Speaking that would also hone your personality which is the best feature of this school. Like Mr. Javi Vargas, from the Marketing Dept. said, Personality Development is something that you can really invest on, which I also agree because if you know how to communicate and project yourself well to other people then you have the capacity to be successful in whatever field you will be into and with this kind of training it will surely make a cultured man out of everybody. I just discovered from there that there are a lot of well-known people who has been with JRP and they said that there are even executives and politicians who would enroll at JRP just to enhance themselves and that hit me, maybe JRP can really mold you into how you would see elites deal with their detailed actions which I really want, not that I act like a caveman but of course it's really different when you get to have a formal training and so I am convincing my cousins to have my nephews and nieces to be enrolled here and hopefully I hope my parents would enroll me here as well.

I wanted to thank Mr. Vargas for letting me know the way to their office, even called me in my mobile (really sorry for the delay) and this is dedicated to my friend Sarah May Tanhuanco also known as Snapshotsandportraits of Powersnet who is currently at Paris right now, totally envying you! lol. I hope to see all these cool people soon including the other winner Shane Chua who is at Boracay right now.

Forgot to wear my Bring Rings, so sorry.

This Night is way awesome, one of the best nights I ever had! I came at SMX around 6:00pm and the people are already lining up like crazy. It's really nice though because we didn't have to line up like others since we fly VIP baby! Then we were seated at the 2nd row which really gave us great view to see everything.

Penshoppe has been so great ever since I started watching their shows and they just keep getting better! Congratulations once again to the whole GOLDEN ABC Family composed of: Regatta, ForMe, MEMO, OXYGEN and PENSHOPPE for your 25th Anniversary, I hope to see more of your shows in the future maintaining the VIP Seat.

The show was really epic! From the design of the stage (loving the big disco balls by the way), to the lights (can't help but to have a picture with the lights in the stage), to the music, to the food and drinks, and of course the collection and how they are presented... I can't even find a well justified adjective to describe it!

My friend, Lawryeng Castro had some extra VIP tickets since our friends didn't show up so what he did was find great dressers outside Function 5 who's lining up to Penshoppe and give it to them for free! Such a saint right? lol. It was great though because the people we get to meet are really nice, I hope to see them again.

Finally when the show was over we had the chance to meet people and have a good conversation with them including the people you've just seen in those pictures above and what I am really thankful most was meeting Ms. Rosario Herrera of Status Magazine, thank God I was wearing the shirt I won from Oxygen's Twitter Tee Off! Because then she saw me wearing it and tweeted a picture of me with my shirt that was actually a co-project of Status Magazine which also happened to be one of my favorite Magazines!
Really made my night, I love her so much she's very sweet.

So how can I sum up the night? I am seated VIP with one of this season's Philippine Fashion Week 2011's Greatest Show, I get to meet greatest people from the industry, get spotted by a magazine which is very historic for me. Maybe you can do the math for me. lol. Seriously had a hard time sleeping after this.

There you go, make sure you follow them on Twitter!
Follow me as well. ;)
