Whenever I visit Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and Taipei, a trip to the Uniqlo store is always a must. I just love their always current merchandise – be it shirts, round-necks, denims, walking shorts and what-have-yous. The price tags are never exorbitant. And the quality is reliable.
I just love Uniqlo’s Japanese-engineered jeans…the slim straight fits me like a glove!
So just imagine how wide my eyes opened upon learning that the Philippines (with the help of SM) will have its first Uniqlo store opening this coming Friday, June 15. I know that the mystique of not having one in our shores will already disappear, while lessening the appeal of visiting their overseas branches. But it still doesn’t make me lose the interest of buying a Uniqlo item.
Check out the store at SM Mall of Asia and you’ll see what I mean. I’m pretty sure opening day will have an avalanche of customers. If you hate big crowds like I do, then you can schedule a visit another day. 😉
The auditions are over. The VJ-wannabes from all over the Philippines have given it their best shot. And whoever made it to the finals this year are just waiting to be formally introduced to the press and on TV. Half a dozen girls plus the same number of boys will be immersed into the world of showbiz via MYX. Along the way, they will compete in a series of challenges that will filter the best and brightest from the batch. The eventual winners will be looked up to by the youth as role models as well so it goes without saying that they should deserve the victory, aside from getting support via online votes and the like.
Who will shine this year? And who will join the likes of current MYX VJs Luis Manzano, Iya Villania, Robi Domingo, Nikki Gil, Chino Lui Pio and Bianca Roque? And who will follow the footsteps of last year’s winners Janine Ramirez and Nel Gomez?
