I became a parent in 2006 and I think it is the best thing that happened to me aside from the money and comforts in life.
This video captures the happiness that a parent gets from their kids.
Just like my daughter, she loves jumping.
Children really changes your life completely.

Who is Jasmine?
I'm a ramp model, I did workshop from fashion sense. I like to be a model because, I want to learn more about modeling and my inspiration is tyra banks J ; not all have black color can be discriminate by others" (that's what tyra point of viewJ). I know I have a skills and talent to be apply in modeling – on what I've learned in modelling. The client should choose me because I have those potential and I'm deserving J (ECHOZ ! CHARINGJ )
I became a fan of her when I watched Clueless way, way back. I particularly liked about the byline "Rollin with the Homies". I was still young then and just like her character in the movie, It was so me.
Here she is in Clueless.
She also appeared with Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder in Girl Interrupted.
8 Mile with Eminem. I was not able to watch this. I'm no Eminem fan.
And here she is in my favorite movie, Just Married. This time I was travelling all over the world and I kinda relate to the sights.
She also came out in the Little Black Book.
And for the very dark movie, Sin City.
Among all these movies, Clueless was my favorite. It played a great role in my life.
Dead at 32.

It's 2 days before Christmas 2009. It's already a decade since the new millenium. I remember before during the new year of 1999, that the world will shut down at year 2000, just because of the millenium bug. Well, it's 2010 soon and we're still ok.
I'm a fan of Alicia Keys way, way back. Watched her first Asian concert at Singapore in 2004. Her current single, Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart captured my attention the first time I heard it. The melody is melancholic and no wonder, it's a song about breaking up. Ahh...relationships indeed.
I think today is my last day of shooting for the year. My model Erick Zonio, an auditiing guy, wants to have a portfolio and I obliged since
1. He has modeled for me in the past.
2. He is a tall cute guy - and he's in the auditing profession.
I still have 2 confirmed photoshoots tomorrow, and I think I'll cancel it. I need to do my grocery shopping. I still don't have food for noche buena. I think I'll just have fried chicken, chocolate cake from Starbucks and spaghetti. This will make me happy already. I was kinda down lately due to lack of money and my mom just reminded me that my problems are trivial. She just told me that it's good that my problem is not the noche buena. Well, I'm thankful that I still have a mom.
I should tell myself always to count your blessings always.
Funny thing that happened to me earlier at Goldilocks, Quezon Avenue. Laura wanted to eat cake and brought her there. After 2 minutes once we sat down, this happened
This is exactly what happened. The joys of parenthood!!!

Its the last Sunday before Christmas 2009. I together with my kids and Mama went to Megamall to go malling. Left around 11 am since I'm expecting heavy traffic. Indeed all my worries were true. Parking inside Megamall was already waiting and once it opened I went straight right away to the top floor since I'm sure there are still open slots, and I was right. There was 1 open slot. Not too choosy anymore with my parking slot as long as I'm able to park right away.
The mall was beaming with holiday shoppers. Christmas is fun here in Manila. I tried it once in the US and Europe and I promised I will never spend Christmas anywhere but home. Manila is where my home is. The most interesting thing that happened to me today is that I saw a very hot bodied man wearing a skimpy santa outfit in the mall. He's wearing almost the same as the one in the video. I'm not sure if he knows me since he smiled at me...(he's wearing shades)..so as not to be too conscious with all the people looking at him. I worked with a lot of models so I'm not sure if he know me.. Sometimes you notice that a person knows you by the way they smile at you. Anyway, I'm sure I'll receive a message from this cutie Santa Guy soon.
I get sentimental sometimes during these times since I get to reflect all the blessing that receive and how God has been kind to me. I finally achieved the lifestyle I wanted. No boss, just me. Waking up around 1 pm daily. Simple life.
I'm bound by these simple rules.
1. Live below your means.
2. Be kind to anybody.
3. If you don't have nice to say to others, SHUT UP.
4. Don't complain. Be Thankful
5. Hardwork is the name of the game. If you want it, then you have to work hard for it.
I will also be very active in my FABE clothing line. Before it was Tony, my brother, who was in charge of designing. He's not really good at aesthetics so I need to step in. Things that were selling at the store were the merchandise that I made. I think I have the ability to know what things sells.
I know have to divide my time with my photography, children and designing. Laura is entering Poveda next year or at the French International School. So it's going to be very challenging. I'm a hands on Dad...this is the life that I worked hard for..my children comes first over anything. The first five years is the best time to spend time with them. I salute all the OFW's who sacrificed leaving their children behind just to earn. I'm blessed that my children are with me. For me, Money is just money. Memories are priceless.
I just recently made a new line of underwear for men. I'm basically a menswear designer. Designing for women is tough for me since I love to wear what I design. I think for 2010. My concentration will be more on men and about 40% will be for women.
My first prototype of underwear were ok. The models loved it and even wished if they can take it home. I also do the photoshoots for my clothes. And this proves to be cost efficient indeed.
Things that sold on our stores were the clothes that we actually designed and based on our original concepts. So this will be the focus for next year.
I love wearing beautiful sleepwear. This red outfit on the left is one of them. Its made of silk satin and it very comfortable to wear.
Big round sleeves and neckline allows you to sleep comfortably. Plus the fabric is dry fit then even during warm days, you don't get sweaty.
Another print that I like is this brown animal print (seen on the right). I already have the shirt for this. Stay tuned on my new designs using this fabric soon.
My new swimwear for women will be done hopefully next week and I'm eager to set up the photoshoot so I can sell it on my store at Cash and Carry mall.
Watch out for it soon.
