Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Snapshots

I was pleasantly surprised one evening to discover that The Link, the building beside Landmark in Makati, was lit up like the Beijing National Aquatic Center, aka the Water Cube.

Makati

Beijing

During one photoshoot with Dave Fabros, I decided to play with a sculpture of a man drinking from a mug. Dave bought that piece in New York, if I’m not mistaken.




And this particular billboard for GlutaMax shows comedienne Jinky Oda in before/after photos with the headline: “From ebony to ivory.” I find the change from fat, dark and curly hair to thin, light-skinned and straight hair particularly unsettling.
