Ballet slippers

There were pointe shoes strapped to the feet of dancers from the Philppine Ballet Theater.

But forest-inspired flip flops made from recycled materials shared the limelight at The Fort's Le Souflle for the launch of Ipanema Gisele Bundchen Seed Collection, Feb. 19.

Francisco Patxi Elizalde, Managing Director of ELRO Commercial and Industrial Corporation, the Brazilian brand's local distributor, hosted a night of good food and eco-chic fashion for bloggers.

Though Supermodel Gisele Bundchen (proclaimed by Forbes magazine as modeling world's top earner) was not around when her flip flops made their way on the ramp, however, her presence was felt since proceeds from sales will finance "Forests of the Future project" that aims to regenerate the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and local forests as well thru the Haribon Foundation.

Eco chic catches fire in Manila.

Amorsolo, papara na sa Ayala

Last few days of "culture coup" Amorsolo retrospective!

"His Heart, Our Art" reaches its last leg of exhibition in Makati City's Ayala Museum and will run until March 8.

Dubbed as "Amorsolo’s Maidens Concealed and Revealed," Inquirer.net said "the exhibit will focus on women as a way of understanding Amorsolo’s celebration of beauty and feminine sensuality."

It further noted, the collection will "draw attention to his country maidens from the American period in our history and his studies of nudes from the postwar years."

Amorsolo had the following stop overs since September last year:
UP Vargas Museum: "Amorsolo, His Contemporaries and Pictures of War: Capturing Anxieties" from Sept. 23 to Nov. 16, 2008.

Lopez Museum: "Tell Tale: The Artist as Storyteller, Amorsolo as Co-Author" from Sept 24, 2008 to April 4, 2009.

The National Museum: "Master Copy" from Sept. 25 to Jan. 15, 2008.

Metropolitan Museum of Manila: "Philippine Staple: The Land, The Harvest and the Maestro" from Sept. 26, 2008 to Jan. 13, 2009.

Yuchengco Museum: "Mukhang Tsinoy: Portraits by Fernando Amorsolo" from Oct. 1, 2008 to Jan. 17, 2009.

GSIS Museum: "Rituals and Amorsolo" from Oct 2, 2008 to Dec 20, 2008.

Anne & Peter: So Contagious (The Diary of Anne Frank, 1959)

Video edited by YouTube's SarBear4Ryan

"So Contagious" by Acceptance

Oh no, this couldn't be more unexpected
And I can tell that I've been moving in so slow
Don't let it throw you off too far
Cause I'll be running right behind you

Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

Oohhh, when I'm around you I'm predictable
Cause I believe in loving you at first sight
I know it's crazy but I'm hoping to..
To take a hold of you

Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

Oh you're everything I'm wanting
Come to think of it, I'm aching
On account of my transgression..
Will you welcome this confession?

Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

(Wikipedia: "'The Diary of Anne Frank' is a 1959 motion picture based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name, which was based on the diary of Anne Frank.

"Up with T-Mobile"

Posted: Monday, January 26, 2009 4:00 PM by Allison Linn, http://adblog.msnbc.msn.com

"You’d be forgiven for not realizing that a new commercial for the British arm of T-Mobile is indeed meant to sell mobile phone plans, or anything at all for that matter.

The commercial opens with an overview shot of what looks like a normal day at Liverpool Street station in London. Within a few seconds, however, music is blaring and the travelers are breaking into dance. As the ad progresses, more people start dancing, the music changing rapidly, as confused and bemused bystanders look on.

At the finale, 350 professional dancers fill the station, dancing wildly and even drawing some of the bystanders in as the company captures the scene on hidden cameras. The full-length version of the commercial, which has aired in the U.K. and is available on YouTube, makes virtually no connection between the dancers and the cell phone provider, and that’s part of its charm."
