Food for Thought: What I Got Out of the Trump Inaugural

Before you continue to read on, I just want to stress that this is not a post that has political flavor. So please let’s leave the dirty side of taking sides in politics out 🙂 I was one of the millions who saw Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States....

New Restaurant Alert: 210° Kitchen and Drinkery in BGC, Manila

Wow, it has been quite some time since I wrote a blog post about a restaurant in the Philippines! But tonight I was actually excited to go home early because I wanted to write about this new place I just went to for dinner. There is a new French bistrot and drinkery in town– specifically...

Happy 2017, my dear friends! I got back from the U.S. days ago and had immediately thrown myself into the heart of Manila’s (music) action, thanks to Glenn and Winston Llamas of Wilbros Live who had brought in the world’s biggest DJ, David Guetta. I thought I was going to nod off because of the...
What to Do in London for 3 Days

What to Do in London for 3 Days

I have been traveling a lot this year and truth it be told, I thought of making the jump from fashion to travel. It would’ve made perfect sense, but then again I do travel for work in fashion so I can’t just turn my back entirely on fashion. Also because that would mean giving up...

That Wild and Crazy Louis Vuitton Bags Sale in Tokyo!

Last Friday, I was going through my feed on Facebook and saw an album of photos from my FB friend that made my jaw drop. I met Nivat a few times from when he was still living in Manila as an executive of an international airline company. But he has since left town, and is...
Lazy Long Halloween Weekend!

Lazy Long Halloween Weekend!

Here in Manila, we all had a long Halloween- All Saints’ Day weekend. I took this time to catch up on sleep (because my rhinitis + asthma deprived me of it), and then enjoyed Netflix. Oh boy Netflix, you are killing my social life lol. But the good news there is, I did get some...

So I joined Asia’s Next Top Model, Cycle 5…

If you are following both my instagram accounts @thebaghag and @thebaghagdiaries, then you might already have known that yes, I did audition for Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 (AsNTM). Pause… *LOL* The executive producer and his team were in town for the open model casting here in the Philippines, and they were hoping to...

Loewe’s Newest Bags for Spring Summer 2017

Hey peeps! It has been awhile since I last posted something on the blog because well, life caught up with me. Shortly after I got back to Manila, I had to fly out again for a work- related meeting in Hong Kong. And although the trip was short, I was just as tired, not having...

Travelog: Visiting Lu Focaro in Torre di Palme

Today, I did something I’ve always wanted to do– drive to another region in Italy 🙂 Since I am in Milan a few days before fashion week begins, I decided to go back to one of the most special places I have ever visited, thanks to the Tod’s family (Claudio, Maria Cristina, Simona, Karen, Sabine,...

Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

I have been to Taipei twice in my adult life before this current one. I was confined to going around in only a few places that time, also perhaps because I was not really free in the afternoons to explore much. This time though, I came with my friends Erika and Lesley, and we were...

The Bag Hag’s Spuddie (Nose): An Update Over a Year Later

My Dearest Reader, I do wonder if you are still with me at this time, because I haven’t really been updating my blog for quite some time. I don’t know about you but I feel as if instagram had become today’s main social medium of choice, and it seems easier and more accessible to work...

In San Francisco and Blending Right in

Hi everyone! After that super fun but too short Tokyo trip, I am back in the city I called home a decade ago. Every year, my fambam and I fly to San Francisco for the holidays. We have been staying in the same home for nearly 30 years now and each time we come back,...
