What do you do on your spare time?
I am a big foodie so I love having dinners out on my spare time, whether it is with family, friends or dinner dates with my boyfriend. Movies and spending time with my Yorkie Clooney are also on top of my “spare time” list.
What do you do after work?
I am currently working on a new apartment so I spend much of my time visiting interior/lifestyle stores. I scope out small places outside the usual malls for accent pieces. I enjoy some pica pica or dinner with my boyfriend in the early evening and relax at home with a good read or DVD. To me, there is no such thing as "after work" when you are involved with a family business (or any business for that matter), because ideas and inspiration can come to you unexpectedly. Actually, my most successful ideas for Philux have come up during the most unforeseen times like drawing on a napkin at dinner!
What do you do on weekends?
I watch movies, walk the dog, exercise, read, eat out. I would say my favourite weekend activity is family breakie & experimenting with new recipes on cook out Sundays. I also try to go out of town as much as I can for a change of scenery. My last trip was to Baguio to enjoy the mountain trails and visit Bencab's museum.
What are your other interests? Hobbies?
Food, traveling, interiors, art and dance. Oh, and how can I forget—Magic Mic!
Is there any fashion item you collect?
Nothing in particular; I rather collect coffee table interior books for design inspiration.
What's your favorite item in your closet?
Gold bangles from the Belgian Congo offered to me by my Granny. They carry a story.
Where do you shop for office/work wear?
No place in particular. I tend to find my favourite pieces on my trips abroad though.
