and that would be.... ME, lol.
I fell in love with this "baby" a few months ago when I saw it being carried by my friend. Since then, I always checked out Rustan's stock of this baby but almost always I ended up empty handed because the color selection is kinda limited (read: old colors are the only one available). I even asked my friend who recently was in Singapore to check out Longchamp there but also, she went home empty handed. Good thing was she discovered that Duty Free carries Longchamp and the price is way cheaper and most of all, new colors are available. So, a day after they went back form SNG, we immediately went to Duty Free and lo and behold, there it was. A rack full of Longchamp Le Pliage bags in different colors!! Here are my loot from DF:
Tote Large in Hawthorn and Handbag Large in Thistle
SO far, i'm so loving the versatility of these bags. Happy baghag ako :)

Yesterday lunch turned out to be a lovely one. I was invited by a colleague to a lunch meeting with her Australian-based sister and brother in law who are here in the country for business. Reservations were made at Terry Selection in PODIUM. It was my first time there and I was quite surprised that the place looks very casual and quiet. A perfect place to hold a meeting. Anyways, the meeting was more of a chat as the couple wanted to more about Contracts Management here in the Philippines. You see, they are consultants for Center for Business Education which hold seminars and training for Contract Managers in Australia. They are not only interested in Contracts Management but in Real Property Management as well. They asked a lot of questions about the current status of the Real Estate Business here in the country. They are also planning to have their own place here that's why they were very eager to know everything about the current prices of houses and condominiums in the metro. It was a very interesting chat coupled with good food and drinks. We ordered a lot of gourmet food including a dish with lamb. I was surprised i liked it! I'm not really an adventurous person when it comes to new dishes. But the lamb dish (sorry I forgot what it's called) tasted so good, I keep getting for more. Finally, after almost two hours of chatting, we said our goodbyes and left for the office. It was a lovely lunch indeed.
