Got an invite from Status Magazine about this event at Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street & I was pretty excited to go ‘cause my blogger friends were going (haven’t seen them in months) and people-watching is always fun lol. Props to Adidas and Status Magazine for bringing Facehunter in Manila! Fun event!
Facehunter (http://facehunter.blogspot.com/), one of the most visited street style blogs in the entire world (blogging for five years) & now Yvan Rodic’s recently published book, also called Facehunter, includes 326 culled from his site.
Fashionistas waiting in line.
Forum, Fully Booked.
Yvan Rodic answering questions.
Blogs like his have minimized “the monopoly on inspiration of the magazines,” Rodic says. “I think blogs bring the idea that fashion is more participative. It shows that instead of having a few trends that are printed by the top publications, there are an infinite quantity of options and that there is no ‘in’ or ‘out.’” (from Taipei Times)
With Yvan Rodic a.k.a. Facehunter! So nice to finally meet you! (Our wavy hair is all over the place haha)
My Facehunter book! My friends told me I look like the guy on the cover huhuhu.
My signed Facehunter book! Yvan Rodic gave me tips on being a good photographer, blogger and to present myself well. He also wrote down some of ‘em! Thank you!

Finally met Shix that night! The most badass ghetto blogger in town! Haha make sure to check out her blog! Also got to hangout with her after the event at Figaro. (P.S. Lol our jackets matches our hair color)
With Facehunter. Such an inspiration. He traveled nearly 30 countries and photographed many (emphasis on many) people which reflects the diversity of their culture. I wanna have my own book too and travel the world! Dream big!
Finally met Tin Iglesias that night! I’ve always wanted to meet her ‘cause we only communicate through the internet lol so it was nice to finally meet her in person! She’s so cute.
With my date that night! Thanks for coming with me to these events hehe. (Off topic: Went to have coffee at Starbucks with her & Gelo before the event, the barista told me I look like James Dean! Just wanna put it out there hahaha inspired to watch East of Eden/Rebel Without A Cause again haha). Great night!
