SM Mall of Asia

Only less than a week to go before SM Mall of Asia’s Big! Big! Sale!!! I hope you guys are ready! I’m pretty stoked because the MoA team gave me a sneak peek of the brands and items which will be on sale and trust me, you guys will love it! Oh and by the way, everything I’m wearing here are just a few of the many participating brands for the sale next weekend! I also prepared a few shopping tips to help you guys out! 

What I’m wearing: jean jacket (Levi’s), sweatshirt (Von Dutch), pants (Topman), backpack (Kipling), watch (Mossimo), earphones (Coloud), shoes (Wade). Hype this on lookbook here.

Jean jacket from Levi’s | Sweatshirt from Von Dutch (Available at SM Mall of Asia) | 1. Wear appropriate clothes. Wear clothes that are easy to get on and off. This will save you time in the dressing room. Definitely not what I’m wearing here! Ha!

Printed backpack from Kipling (Available at SM Mall of Asia) | 2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you think you need help, approach a sales associate. These people are familiar with the inventory the store has. 

3. If you’re not entirely sure if you like what you’re looking at, yet try it on first before buying it. Cuz you’ll never know until you try! This way, you’ll be able to see whether the size is right and whether the colors actually look good on you or not. Believe it or not, this can save you a lot of money whenever you shop!

Watch from Mossimo (Available at SM Mall of Asia) | 4. Don’t spend it all in one place. Some people (especially us guys) have a tendency to go to one store only and buy everything from there. Don’t just go to your favorite store. Look around and give chance to others! Haha!

Shoes from Wade (Available at SM Mall of Asia) | 5. Have a shopping buddy. If some of us needs a gym buddy, same goes with shopping. Take your wife, your girlfriend or your friend with you. Just make sure your friend is honest and will not hesitate to tell you if the outfit looks good or bad on you. Haha!

Last July 20, SM Men’s Fashion hosted a fashion show at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium wherein all the hottest jeans brands showcased their newest collection! Brands such as V+, Baleno, Code Blue, Tank, Markus, Lee, Wrangler and Levi’s, amongst others, took part of this celebration. 

Hosted by the beautiful Shamcey Supsup (who looked soooo good in jeans), performances by The Philippine All Stars and a fashion show modeled by Hideo Muraoka, Fabio Ide, Rafael Do Prado and many more! 

The fashion show left me feeling inspired to wear jeans more often (and depressed–seeing all these ripped models made me want to hit the gym right after the show haha). Jeans are indeed a second man’s skin–you just need to find the right style and fit! 

I know jeans festival month is almost over but don’t fret! This August, to celebrate four years of Just Delivered Jeans, SM  Men’s Fashion has a special treat for you! For a minimum purchase of Php2,000 worth of regular prices jeans, get php200 on your final bill. And to top that off, get a chance to be one of the 100 lucky winners of php5,000 worth of SM Men’s Fashion gift vouchers! 

Last month, I had a shoot for SM Mall of Asia for their Big Summer Sale (April 19-21). We shot at Pico de Loro, Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu. It was such a fun shoot–felt like we were just a group of friends who went on an out-of-town trip! It didn’t feel like work at all. Here are a few behind the scenes photos! 

The first layout was at the infinity pool overlooking Hamilo Coast. Jas is such a pro! She’s so fun and easy to work with. Very beautiful and humble too! Yeee

Sandro doing what he does best–multitasking! I was fortunate enough to work with him for the End of Season Sale campaign last year with Camille Co and Tricia Gosingtian (check out our photos HERE).

Taking outfit shots with Lissa while waiting for our turn! Hashtag blogger duties! lol

For the next layout, we shot at this beautiful chapel overlooking the Hamilo Coast. This time with Lissa, Jas and Paul! Ahhhh, I wish I had this view everyday. 

Shoot outtakes! We had to do a lot of smiling and laughing–definitely not my forte. Haha! Everything I’m wearing (except the sunnies) are from Bench. 

Jasmine doing some yoga in between takes haha! 

For the last layout, we shot at this scenic boardwalk. Sarap gumawa ng music video dito! I’m wearing clothes from Giordano, Uniqlo and Pedro–everything available at SM Mall of Asia. 

And we’re done for the day! Since our shoot finished early, we had a few more hours to spare. Lissa and I decided to go swimming and relax by the beach. 

We had the beach to ourselves! You know what that means…photoshoot! lol. Thank you Pico de Loro (book here) for having us! We’ll be back again for sure! 

From Pico de Loro, we went straight to Taal Vista Hotel for another shoot. Uhhh, we had no idea it was soooo cold in Tagaytay at this time of the year! I only brought board shorts and sunblock for this trip! Haha!

Lissa and I woke up extra early the next day to workout! Yeaaah actually, Lissa did. I was just there to instagram. 

Pakwan swag! Haha enjoyed the buffet breakfast before our shoot! Thank you Taal Vista Hotel! Every corner of the hotel is outfit shot-worthy. 

Here’s the behind the scenes video! Thank you SM Mall of Asia, Pico de Loro and Taal Vista Hotel! We had a blast!   

Don’t miss out on SM Mall of Asia’s Big! Big! Summer Sale this April 19, 20 & 21! Trust me, it’s huge! I went to their sale last year and I was able to score a lot of items! (Check out my outfit posts wearing the stuff I scored from the sale HERE).
