Apple Store opens in Singapore


Apple Stores around the world traditionally have its presence in first world countries, and Singapore should be no exception.  It took a while, but it’s finally here.  Before this, the nearest Apple Stores in the region would probably be the ones in Hong Kong.  I remember a few years back when I visited the island, one of the top things in my itinerary was to drop by an Apple Store; never mind skipping Disneyland. And that is precisely because Apple Stores have become more than just stores, but iconic landmarks usually placed at the center of a metropolis. From its iconic Fifth Avenue in the heart of New York City, to the Ginza store in Tokyo – and now, Singapore Orchard Road. Continue reading “Apple Store opens in Singapore”


Somewhere Down The Road – A Random Act of Kindness Workshop

Waking up randomly one day and thinking of what random acts of kindness I can do for strangers has not been a normal practice for me. Yes, I am not unfamiliar with compassionate love and fortunately have had my fair share in sincerely reaching out to help those in need, but pushing myself to look out specifically to give a random act of kindness is something I have not tried. A fruitful exercise from our local community, aptly named “Somewhere Down The Road” addressed just that.  Continue reading “Somewhere Down The Road – A Random Act of Kindness Workshop”

Graphika Manila 09

July 15, 2009

SM Mall of Asia Premier Cinema

The finale event of the Manila Design Week 2009, and most probably the notable. What has become (in its 4th run now) the premier annual event in the Graphic Design world here in the Philippines – Graphika Manila.

This was my first attendance since the event’s inception in 2006, together with the Orange & Bronze Creative team.

What surprised me in the event itself is when I found out the fact that Aram Beheshti, all the while, is Graphika Manila’s foremost inventor and big boss, who’s actually a schoolmate of mine in Don Bosco during college. We soon hope Orange & Bronze Creative team would be a sponsor on next year’s event!

A colleague from O&B Creative, Mikko Claour and I went to the Adobe Creative Festival – Live in the Philippines. A short but really noted event.

Not only that, it’s all available (and more) online here , so you really didn’t miss anything – except the in-your-face and real time demonstration of all that’s new in CS4.
