Ferragamo Celebrates 80 Years of Style

Last Wednesday, October 22 at the Peninsula Manila Hotel, Ferragamo unveiled its latest collection, which coincides with their 80th year in the business. The highlight of the night was Ferragamo’s, through its local distributor Store Specialists, Inc., Php2M donation to the Philippine Red Cross. The event was co-sponsored by Citibank and Citigold.

Ferragamo’s latest collection features the neutral trend: shades of white and dark gray, metallics, and design and style depicting the classy, luxurious, and sophisticated Ferragamo brand. The “Varina” shoes look like a killer but appears comfy and classy. The bags are softly structured in hide of leather, Gancio clasp, origami in Hayers calf and calf, pony kid, and ginger calf leather, and are still on the metallic side. The men’s collection give that black-tie effect for daytime, all in matte and accessories in glossy calfskin and ostrich.

Wow I didn’t know if they really used the mentioned animals’ skin for those!

It was my first time to attend a fashion show of that magnitude. I was a bit starstruck, but came out of it whole and well more fashion conscious. Thanks to my BFF Agnes for tagging me along. :)

See the show through the photos.

Bulacan Pilgrimage – 2nd Stop: San Agustin Parish Church, Baliwag

After visiting The National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Marilao, we headed for the San Agustin Parish Church in Baliwag.

The Parish Church of San Agustin is striking not only for its massiveness but also for its lofty and airy bell tower. The facade is said to be baroque. It has two levels topped by a triangle pediment. The huge, unharmonized relief at the lower portion of the belfry was only a latter addition that entailed covering up the circular window.

Unfortunately, the facade is marred by a huge portico that blocks a good view of the church. The church is showing its age, too. The stones and bricks appear to be pulverizing and disintegrating. Also the presence of beggars and street waifs somehow spoil the area.

Also, we were not able to take photos as the church was dark and was being prepared for a wedding.

Check out the photos.

Legs, legs, legs mo ay nakakasilaw!

My first entry to Creative Lens photo assignment, September, Week 5. A raw, unedited photograph of one of my powerful body parts.

I say powerful because they have many uses:

* I use them to move about and be of service to everyone.
* I use them to kick to protect myself and my loved ones.
* They support me when load is temporarily put on my shoulders.
* I use them to twirl around and give in with abandon to any rhythm.
* In moments of unbridled passion, I can intertwine them with those of my man.

Well, friends and family would always say, “Legs, legs, legs mo ay nakakasilaw!:)

Bulacan Pilgrimage – 1st Stop: National Shrine of the Divine Mercy

The Holy Eucharist Parish of Moonwalk Paranaque is celebrating its Silver Jubilee. One of the church activities is a pilgrimage to Bulacan churches.

So last Saturday, my whole family joined the pilgrimage. Our first stop was The National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Sta. Rosa 1, Marilao, Bulacan.

Since early 1990s, more than 300,000 devotees of the 3 o’clock Habit have flocked to the Shrine. The main altar features the life-sized painting of the Divine Mercy. The images of the Seven Archangels are included in the main altar. At the lower part of the Shrine and situated at the back, is the Grotto of Our Lady of Fatima. There is also an Adoration Chapel, which houses the painting of the Last Vision of Fatima. Adjacent to it is the so-called “Rosary Hill.” The 15 mysteries and the 14 stations of the cross help people experience conversion, healing, and a deeper relationship with God.
