Bric's Milano in Cebu

As international brands are coming to invade Cebu, I feel like there's no more reason to go to Manila anymore. As my curiosity continues, I checked this new opened store at the new wing of Ayala Center Cebu.

I saw Bric's store when I was in Hong Kong. I didn't have time to check on it, now that they are open here in Cebu, I finally get to know more about their store.

In 1952 Mario Briccola founded a company, INDUSTRIA VALIGERIA FINE MARIO BRICCOLA, manufacturing suitcases and bags. He knew he could rely on his own resources, initiative, courage, and creativity. Because Mario Briccola’s vision was projected towards a greater future, with ambitious goals, the main investment was on himself and his family. (source)

Bric's celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2012 with the motto "Made in Bric's", which reflects the cultural identity of an Italian company. 

I also found out that Bric's bags are a favorite among Hollywood's A-listers and has been featured in several movies such as Twilight: Breaking Dawn.

Truly "Made in Italy" Bric's is from their surname Briccola. How cool is that? I'm into travel, but I never tried carrying luggage, so these are so lovely and perfect for Europe trip soon, maybe? HAHA #Wishfulthinking

These are my favorite, I'm a sucker when it comes to brown color. I am really into it. In case, I would buy one, believe me, it is really hard to choose what are you going to buy. Except for the different prices of each luggage and different style. They have 20% up to 30% discount!

Left bag is a leather and a laptop bag, how dappy!

Some of their collections:



Spinner Trunk as one of their best seller. Made from polycarbonate, German material and has Japanese wheels. Look how flexible!

These bags are pure leather too! To die for.

Then I got my eyes on these bags over here. Since I am not into luggage (for now), I asked the staff what bag they can recommend to me.

These are what the staff show to me, I don't know what to color to choose. HAHAHA! Their staff are so accommodating, as a buyer it's my habit to ask many questions about the product to make sure that everything is good. I even can't decide which bag to get because all of them are so pretty and sturdy!

I like this color. It complement whatever outfit I wear. 

My forever crush!

Then I choose this one: X-Bag

Lovely pink, but too girly for me. :) 

Polo: 6ixty 8ight | Shorts: Next | Shoes: Palladium Boots

So, I choose this ocean blue color. 

X-Bag is that can be used in three ways, how awesome!

1. It can be as a shoulder tote bag (see the pink tote above) 
2. As a cross body bag (see above photo)
3. Mini shoulder bag - the pouch inside that is detachable that also comes with a strap. Oh-ha!

Here's how to transform the slings in to cross body bag:

The pouch that also comes with a sling transformation:

I also met a blogger that we have almost the same name: Jewey of thepausesbetween.com, she was also there to check their bags.

Finally, my girlfriends from Manila, Kate and Sheena who had a business trip here in Cebu, dropped by too! These are their picked for luggage bags. They asked if they also have branches in Manila, and yes, located in SM Aura and Shangri-la Mall.

We strike a posed as I was finally done choosing a bag, while Kate and Sheena can't help but to pose with their picked on shoulder bags.

Moving Pictures at the Beach

Let's take this to another level of blogging. I think most of my blog posts here are more about my beach trips. Tried the animation featured of my phone and voila! This is how awkward I posed in front of the camera. LOL. 

What else I recorded is that my "walking to the beach" mode. Okay, not so interesting.

How about a "be yourself and enjoying the beach" mode! Weeee! 

Leaving you this view to relax. I can't wait for my next beach trip! 

Time wasted at  the beach is time well spent.

Have a great day everyone!

Photo Diary: Hong Kong Tour

YAAAY! Long A's because I am now sharing the photos dumped during my trip in Hong Kong. Photos loading in 3...2...1 

Please excuse the photo above as I've been missing doing jumpshot when I travel somewhere.

After we got hit by turbulence during our flight, we made sure that we have to overcome the trauma that we felt that time. So as we bought ticket to go to Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Shui.

I downloaded the MTR app for android for some help when needed, but I did not use it the entire trip, they have maps posted in every station. So, I am confident that you will not get lost. :)

Sunny Bay Station waiting for the train going to Mong Kok.

Hey, Panda! Can I bring you home? Trying to steal this in Kowloon Park

Time for some shoes hunting! Look what I found -_-

So many Palladium Boots! They have complete collection here. 

Some serious train station photo opts. 

Our friendship is like that, so tight! with Jo, my friend and travel buddy.

Too many signs.

Another travel buddy, Cybil! Last year, same month, we went to Boracay and Manila!

The forever alone.

Where to go?

While we were thinking where to go, a group of students asked something from us, anything that we can give to them exchange of their item. They are so happy with the earrings from Jo!  I hope they were not part of the rally happened last month.

We tried some street food in Mong Kok, it was good. As a Filipino, we want something heavy for our tummy, I saw Ippudo when we were at the Central, Hong Kong. They are now open in Manila, so funny, I tried it on Hongkie.


Thank you Air You Go Travel for arranging our trip. :)

More photos soon. xx

Have a great day everyone!
