“CHLOE” coffee table book

So that we don’t have to think of what to give, which can be quite stressful, we’ve decided to just hold a Kris Kringle and write down a wish list.


I got so excited and checked if the things I’ve been wanting (but not wanting to spend for) fit the budget, and they do. Here are my Top 6 picks:


  1. Seletti monkey candelabra, available at A11 and Dimensione


  1. No. 21 Mules with origami bow detail in mustard yellow, available at netaporter.com


  1. Cashmere coat from Joseph, SM Aura


  1. Penhaligon scent in Quercus, available at Adora


  1. Cristofle Vertigo water pitcher, available at Rustan’s


  1. “Chloe” coffee table book, available at National Bookstore.


It also made me wonder what other people have on their wish lists. Here goes:


“I want a Loewe puzzle bag, No. 21 mules, and for my wedding reception to be approved and booked.”–Daryl Chang


“A Palawan trip with friends and family!”–Jo Ann Bitagcol


“A new Canon lens, 50mm f1.2LUSM would be amazing!” –Marie Lozano


“A solo vacation in London (one of my favorite cities), to get inspired; and besides, everyone deserves a break once in a while.”–Mel Cuevas


“To have a Rimadesco closet, but realistically, I would love to get Linda Farrow sunglasses.”


–Macky Fäh


“I would love to receive the Saint Laurent par Hedi Slimane (leather small camera bag with lipstick design) because it’s so cute!”–Gay Chen


“The Cartier Just En Clou bracelet in gold, because next year it’s baby shopping for me!” –Mikaela Martinez


“I would love to receive a BAMIN bag, because it’s personalized, light and chic, but still can carry all my stuff. Available at the Slow Living: Holiday Series this Saturday.”–Nicole Wisenhunt


“A Leica X type 113 and a fully set-up photography studio.”  –Cat Antonio


I hope you all visit the Slow Living: Holiday Series curated by my friend Macky Fäh this Saturday, where you will find lots of Christmas gift ideas, from Rajo Laurel candles to Loup Noir bags. I’m also going to offer BAMIN bags from New York, which Nicole Wisenhunt wants to receive. The bazaar is from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., at MDI Corporate Center Lobby, 10th Ave. cor. 39th St., Bonifacio Global City. Hope to see you all there!
