LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #18 - THE GOLDEN HOUR RUSH

I don't know exactly what to call this look but as far as I remember this was taken at around 4:00pm when the hour was at its golden. Perfect natural lighting no?

Photo overload I know. Sorry, but I can't help myself from grabbing this chance to have my photo taken in this kind of beautiful lighting. And would you believe that 95% of all shots taken were usable? Cool right?

PS: I'm starting this new segment on my blog where I'll style one piece of clothing particularly the top into three ways. This is the second look. The first one? My Hang Ten 'The Traveling Nomad" entry. Be posting my last look for this shirt soon. You see, The PR Guy is not just about spending. And aside from style, I'm also into practicality.:)

FROM PERRY TO PEROU (PART 2)

So here goes the conclusion of my "From Perry to Perou" post. Since we're done with Katy Perry (even though I'm still not over her yet), it's time for Mr.Perou!

The Status Magazine x Perouvian Wasteland Exhibit was held at Ayala Museum on the same day Prestige Philippines had a meet and greet with Katy Perry. I hope you already knew that I spent the early and best part of the day waiting while standing in line (plus more waiting!) for the popstar to arrive at SM MoA that's why I wasn't able to drop by at the exhibit. But you know what they say, It's quality time over quantity spent that matters. That's why I decided to still pay respect to the commitment I made by dropping by at least to the after party that was held at Robot Restaurant & Lounge in Makati. Who would've thought that the "real" action is gonna happen that night at Robot?



We (Ava, Gersh and Melai) were the first to arrive at the venue since it's too late for us to go to the exhibit at the Ayala Museum. It was my first time to go to Robot and I must say that what they (the owners) did to the area was mind blowing! I tell you that it's every (fashion) bloggers paradise for outfit shots!

The lights and everything else that sparkled was plain genius! And I'm bias with the food since I love Japanese! More photos…

If you've read my previous post, I mentioned that Mr.Perou and Katy Perry are friends and that their tweets can attest to that. Here's the proof…



I also mentioned that they got the chance to work together right? So here's more proof…



That's it! That's the end of my post. From Perry to Perou, a day with two internationally celebrated personalities. A day with Katy Perry and Mr.Perou.

FROM PERRY TO PEROU (PART 1)

What are the odds of two internationally acclaimed foreign artists visiting the Philippine shores all in the same day? Two artists who have similar sounding names. Two artists who already got the chance to work together who by the way were also friends (their twitter messages can attest to that). Well, let's make that even. I got to meet them both! Yeah… up close and personal baby!

Let's start with Katy Perry…

Prestige Brands Philippines organized a meet and greet with Katy Perry coinciding her "official" Purr perfume launch here in the Philippines. They invited me to see her but not actually "meet" if you know what I mean. Since I'm going already, I might as well meet and be able to greet her in person at the cost of a 100ml bottle of perfume (Php3,700) which by the way, is all worth it! So here's what happened…

The event was held at the Atrium of SM Mall of Asia a day before her concert. Got there before 2:00pm as scheduled but we need to wait for like two and a half hour for her to arrive. But who's complaining? We got to feast our eyes on some celebrities who also went and also got to bond with a couple of gorgeous blogger friends!

And the main part of the event! Everyone, meet Katy Perry...





And here's the highlight of the day (according to me). My moment with Katy!


The minute I stepped onstage, my mind went haywire and all I remembered saying after Katy ask me "Hi! What's your name?" was "Hi, I'm Paul… I love you… Can I get a hug?" Yes. She gave me my request and more! I also asked her to sign my CD since she's only allowed to sign two items (the other one being the perfume's cover). I remembered myself fumbling when I told her that "I'll pray that God will bless you in every aspect of your life!" which she in turn replied by saying "Why, thank you!". She has a strong faith based background you know (despite her songs). I also got her to do the heart sign with me! And not just that… She told me that I smelled good! (Yes, she did!) I replied by saying "Of course, I sprayed on some of your perfume!". She playfully slapped my left arm while saying "Get out of here!" Haha. We're close you know.

FYI: I was wearing Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for Men. I also sprayed (some) Purr on my hands.

I love Katy Perry. Period.

Thank you Prestige Brands Philippines! You know how much I love you guys right? Next to Katy Perry of course. Hehe…
