The Tracks Of My Tears

"People say I'm the life of the party
Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue"
- Go West, Tracks Of My Tears

Funny how we hide our true feelings from people. You know, like most comedians are truly serious in real-life. Their act is just a mask to cover up what they really feel, trying to turn a negative into something positive or use their miseries and turn them into something to laugh about. Being humans, we tend to mask our real feelings with laughter. Laughter is, infact, the best medicine. It can help you get through life's hardships and hurts with a smile. But still it remains, how do you mend something already broken by covering it? Is it even healthy to do that? I don't know, I guess I'll find it out next time...

Avenue Q

December 15, 2007
Avenue Q
RCBC Plaza, Makati City

Thank you Jacko for the extra ticket. Watching Avenue Q was really really worth. I'd even pay more for better seats! I loved the play. Perfect comedic timing and the actors were really really good. Even with puppets, the actors interacted with the crowd and acted along the puppets. I mean, just think about how they practiced everything to perfection. Noticed just one miscue but that's it... The rest of the play was PERFECT. Funny and satirical. One thing though, I wish they could have changed it to a more Philippine setting (version). Some jokes were very "American", meaning normal Filipinos would not get it because it pertains to an American setting. Some adlibs were done and it was well received by the audience. I hope more adlibs to suit the Philippine taste would be added. I could just imagine not being able to stop laughing with that! Love the songs: "If You Were Gay" and "The Internet Is... For Porn"! And of course the infamous "sex-scene"! Very entertaining! I'd watch it again... who has tickets?

Myron's: Wagyu

December 14, 2007
Rockwell, Makati City

Met up with Jen and went to Rockwell for some dinner. We decided to try Myron's and test their Wagyu burger. It's good but I was comparing it to La Maison in Greenbelt 5 and that was awesome! This Wagyu burger was kinda dry and a bit crumbly which was not the case with La Maison's version. Maybe this was the reason why I didn't like the burger. I'll try Malcom's next and finally go back to La Maison to take some pictures cause I kinda forgot my camera when I went to eat there.

WTF?!? (2nd)

Second of the WTF?!? Series: Saw this jacket on a colleague in Malaysia. Probably made in China. Can someone try to explain to me what the author of this jacket was "trying" to say?

Or a case of being lost in translation...

Question is: Who's lost? The author or us?

Malaysia 2007: The Jimmy Choo Experience

Jimmy Choo and I

Met the one and only Jimmy Choo in our recent Malaysia trip where we were the delegates of the Philippine footwear industry invited to attend the Malaysian Footwear Showcase 2007. For those who don't know Jimmy Choo, here's his profile from wikipedia:

Dato' Jimmy Choo OBE, born Jimmy Choo Yeang Keat, is a London-based luxury fashion designer best known for his hand-made women's shoes. Jimmy Choo was co-founded by Simone Lindsey of Essex, and she now models the shoes full time.

Choo is a Malaysian of Hakka Chinese descent who was born in Penang in 1961 into a family of shoemakers. He made his first shoe when he was 11 years old, but managed only to complete six years of formal education at Shih Chung Primary School in Penang. He is perhaps the most famous of alumni of Cordwainers' Technical College in London, from which he graduated in 1983. The college is now part of the London College of Fashion. Choo has divulged that he worked part-time at restaurants and as a cleaner at a shoe factory to help fund his college education.

Choo's humble beginnings can be traced back to his workshop in Hackney, East London, which he opened in 1986 by renting an old hospital building. His craftsmanship and designs soon became noticed and he came to the verge of international fame when his creations were featured in a record eight pages in a 1988 issue of Vogue magazine. Patronage from Diana, Princess of Wales from 1990 onwards further boosted his image.

In 1996, he co-founded Jimmy Choo Ltd with UK Vogue accessories editor Tamara Mellon.

In April 2001, Choo sold his 50% stake in the company for £10 million. He has since concentrated his work on the exclusive Jimmy Choo Couture line produced under license from Jimmy Choo Ltd. This is available, by appointment only, at Connaught Street off Oxford Street in London. The Jimmy Choo London line, also known as Jimmy Choo ready-to-wear or simply, Jimmy Choo, is now under the purview of Tamara Mellon and Sandra Choi. Choi, who was an apprentice under Choo, is the Creative Director at the company. She is the niece of Choo's wife Rebecca. The ready-to-wear line has expanded to include accessories such as handbags.

Choo now resides chiefly in London. He is involved in a project to set up a shoemaking institute in his country of birth Malaysia, where his iconic status is often evoked to inspire budding shoemakers and fashion designers.
