Style Origin 7: Cebu 1

The Style Origin series continues and is on to its next leg but this time out of Manila--Cebu.  The colossal mall inspired by the Terraces in Greenbelt is a maze of almost anything and everything you can think of with a LOT of space.  Am doing two entries for Cebu coz there are a lot of pictures taken and afraid to put all of them in one entry.  Thanks to Mikmik from the Ayala Center group, we were billeted at the Marriott Hotel Cebu city which is easily accessible via the mall.  Here are some pics of the interiors.

The lobby.

Coffee or tea?
New wave.
Breakfast is served.
Going up?
Early dip into the cold.

Samson and snakeskin sneakers from Adora.
After a delightful brekkie (breakfast) with Director Jackie Aquino, we stayed for awhile in the hotel until noon then headed to the mall for lunch(hahahahhahaa!)--it's no surprise that Cebu is one of those places in the Philippines known as a gastronomic haven .  Food is unbelievably reasonable and there's just so much to try and variety to choose from.  After lunch, the style team finally started to get things going and had to go to the stores participating in the event to assign model tags for the clothes selected. These brands are the following:

Model in Sketchers.
Getting ready to get Accessorize-d!
Lined up at Girbaud.
King Penguin.
The best thing about out of town work trips is the company you keep and with us was family.  In situations like this, the work becomes fun and all the more fulfilling for everyone. Bonding time is building time that goes beyond work and into lifetime friendships.  Though the style team may not be complete, we knew the rest were present in spirit--missing you much Belle Camarsi, Reg Rodriguez, Donna Gonzales Lim, Noelle Llave and Mary Grace Caison.

   And on a high note, hope we're not forgetting that today is special coz we celebrate one of the most important person in our lives--our Mother.  Happy Mother's Day!!!
