Thank you Town & Country



Thank you so much Town & Country Philippines. I’ve been meaning to post this since the Design List last month then I got overtaken by events only to find out I made to a second list this month. I hope Summit Publishing doesn’t mind that I’m sharing some photos of the pages here. Really floored that I’m even in your radar. Thank you!!!

This year’s list of 101 People You Must Meet Right Now.


The list included business leaders Ramon Ang, Tessie Sy, Miguel Ramos, Anton Huang, Crystalle Henares and Noey Lopez.


And creative geniuses Bea Valdes, Ben Chan, Josie Natori and Rajo Laurel as well as model Danica Magpantay.


Political newsmakers Mar Roxas, Juan Ponce Enrile and Serafin Cuevas. I love these drawings.


And here’s the page I’m in with social entrepreneurs Margarita Delgado, Lizzie Zobel and chef restaurateur Margarita Fores.


I’m in the design category. Whee!


I can’t get over my cartoon self. Haha. I look better here than I do in real life and pictures. Haha.


July 2011
This was last month’s cover with Anna Sy (July 2011).


They came up with their first annual design list.


Humbled that my little creative enterprises got recognized. Now I have to work extra hard to live up to everything they wrote. Yikes.



BC Magazine



I love BC Magazine – great photos, awesome art direction, cool articles. It is owned and operated by an awesome Filipino couple, Tom and Tanya Favis, who actually started the magazine in the US while they were still living in California. Check out the US version here. When they moved back to the Philippines, they captured the parenting market right away.


BC Magazine
This is their first issue in the Philippines back in 2010. Amazed I was included on this list.


BC Magazine
Tom and Tanya took this photo themselves. They each had a camera so I don’t know which one shot this.


BC Magazine January 2011
Then they gave me my first epic-like cover. There were three versions to this “eat, pray, love” cover. Here’s the one with Lily. The series looked like this.


BC Magazine Jan 2011
We rarely do family photos in magazines. Glad we did this. I think I want to have this framed.


Patricia and Vince Hizon
One of their latest issues had the theme ‘Most Beautiful Moms and Dads.’ BC had an exhibit in Mall of Asia, showing past and present issues. Here is Patricia and Vince Hizon.

Philippine shoppers can choose the option with prepaid customs taxes. They deliver to your Philippine address, supposedly worry-free. But sometimes there are hitches in the Bureau of Customs. You can report it to the Bureau of Customs twitter here or at the Department of Finance website



Thank you Space Magazine



Thanks, Space! Just saw this. It’s from last year.


I love that the Daphne chair was mentioned in this collage. They are now exclusively available at Dimensione.
