Yes, I was in H&M last March 8 to check out the Marni collection. No photography allowed sa store, so no personal photos here.
Compared to the Versace for H&M collection last November 2011, I think hindi gaanong pinagkaguluhan itong Marni here in Singapore. I went to the store around 5pm and marami pang stocks. Yung Versace, ubos by 1pm!
Such lovely prints.
I liked the polka-dot coat the most. Kaso ang mahal. SGD250 (almost Php9K). Pass. Was happy to just try it on.

We're so looking forward to the Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal exhibit at the ArtScience Musuem. It's opening next weekend! Yey!
As a prelude (haha), we're happy to get shirts from Uniqlo's "limited only" Andy Warhol collection. Pop art for only SGD25 each. Now that's a steal!
I got the shoe print. I have a hardbound journal and stationary with the same design back in Manila. *kilig* Hubby got the iconic Campbell's soup print.

I'm reliving one of my favorite childhood games. Currently having so much fun with the iPad app "Fashion Story," where I get to manage my very own boutique. Confession: Nagpupuyat ako for this!
At age 8 (that's when I finally got my own space), I'd re-arrange my bedroom so that it'd look like a dress shop. Everything on my dresser and cabinets were for sale. I was the owner, sales lady, and cashier. I had imaginary customers. Business was always doing well. Haha!
I don't get the Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies craze, sorry. So happy to have finally found the game for me. "Fashion Story" fits me like a glove.

I needed a trim. And I wanted to experience using these "cheap" haircut machines. I've been seeing them all around Singapore. So I took the chance one weekend.
I went to the neighborhood mall, placed SGD10 (around Php350) on the machine, got my ticket and waited for my turn. When my number finally appeared on the marquee, I handed my ticket to a lady. She showed me to my seat. And asked, in Singlish, what I wanted. I said, "Just a trim. Around two inches off..." Then she started cutting. No shampoo service. I panicked, "How will she know if pantay kung hindi basa hair ko?!" But I didn't dare complain. Natakot ako sa gunting. Lol.
My thought balloon the entire time, "If you wanted pampering, you should have gone to the 'starts at SGD100' salons." So I sat quietly throughout the cut, trying to be optimistic, "Baka ganun sila kagaling? Hindi na kailangan mag-shampoo or basain ang hair."
After the cut, straight lang naman, another surprise -- no blow drying too! Good thing I just asked for a basic trim. No hair styling required. But to this day I wonder, "Pantay ba? Parang hindi..."
Ganun ba talaga ang SGD10 haircut? Or I can get better service in other branches?
