Kahit Sundays are meant for ze family, game na game ako last Sunday for Hang Ten's "Special Event" in their MOA branch (for me, my fave Hang Ten branch!)! It wasn't called special for nothing, we were even asked to bring one of our readers! :)
Umeksena nanaman ang kaulanan going there, but the best talaga ang bus discovery ko from Ayala going to MOA. Sa baba siya ng MRT Ayala Station, second lane yun bus dadaan...Direcho MOA yun, P12 lang! :D Naka-aircon ka pa kesa mag shuttle / orange jeep ka pa sa Buendia or Baclaran...or mag cab na hindi ka sure how much aabutin!
When I reached Mall of Asia, I met Jenny (Ava's reader, and one of the students I am helping out for their thesis) in the carousel area. We went together inside the Hang Ten store and was greeted by these awesomeness of shoes:
Gusto ko lahat! I really hope they sell these din! :P Learned from Sir Kyle that these are sold in Satchi Store. Hope to feature them next time...
I am in love with the brown flats with tassels and the pink oxfords!
I met the other bloggers, but most especially the readers ng mga MIA bloggers because of the rain and traffic. Feel na feel kong host of the event ako hahaha, entertaining the dear readers, na mga shy type pa yun iba nung umpisa. :) I love them!
Then I met the real host of the affair, hahaha! Portia Silva, a fellow ex-Candy Council member and a Kulasa, made sure the event was fun fun fun for everybody! :) Love this quirky girl, got to talk with her kahit sandali lang pre-event. :) Bongga mo Porky!
Sir Kyle De Leon, Hang Ten's Creative Director, with his opening remarks:
I also had the chance to finally meet (and greet? :D hehe) these creative designers: Katie Pineda and Tin Umali! :)
Beautiful set-up... Bet ko to for my room. Chos!
Cute big vintage maletas. :P Akin nalang please! Hehe!
Students from PUP called "The Irregulars" were awarded for Hang Ten's Window Display Contest! :) Congrats ladies! Mahirap mag bihis ng mannequin ha (which we were able to experience that day!)...window display pa kaya!?! Good job!
Riot Icebreaker: Walang kamatayang Human Bingo!
Binulungan ko na kaagad reader ko nun: "Naku galingan natin, competitive ako!" Hehehe.
I had one box nalang left (Someone who has been blogging for more than 5 years :P)...When they announced may nanalo na daw! Bummer! ;D Hahaha!
Congrats David Guison! With Kisty Mea on stage, to prove na she winks while she laughs! ;D

We were grouped into 4 (2 bloggers and their 2 readers)...para mag style ng mannequin assigned to us! :D Challenging!!!

Nacapture / summarize ang buong styling riot ng Team 13! ;D Hahaha!
I'm sure parehas kami ng iniisip ni Nicole dito: What is styling in short skirt? Hahahaha! Never again, mag leleggings nako next time! Hahaha!
Ang dami namin kinuha, walang kaconcept concept hahaha! Three pairs of shoes, mismatched accessories hahaha... So Nicole and I went around the store again the last few minutes! :D
