Schooled

Attending Watches and Wonders made me feel like I got an intensive short course on the basics of watches. Not that it was burdensome or boring or anything like all the things we hate about school, but more because I learned so much in such a short amount of time. I keep saying this over […]

I was invited by IWC to attend the exclusive Watches And Wonders event at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre where thirteen Maisons (including IWC) were exhibiting their latest collections. Here, watch enthusiasts from all over the world are able to discover the latest trends with close […]

IWC Gala Dinner

After attending the Timeless Portofino Exhibit earlier in the day, I was in for an even more glamorous evening at the Grand Hyatt Hotel with my friend Laureen. We were both invited to IWC’s Gala Dinner starring Cate Blanchette and guests of honor Peter Lindbergh, Zhou Xun and Karolina Kurkova. It was definitely a star-studded event with not […]

Timeless Portofino

A few weeks back, I flew to Hong Kong to attend IWC Schaffhausen’s various events arranged for the launch of its new Portofino Midsize collection (which I’ll talk more about in a separate post). The first event I attended was the Timeless Portofino exhibition at the Grand Hyatt, shot by the legendary German photographer Peter Lindbergh. I was […]

Let Loose

I remember the first time I saw a pair of culottes. It was during high school when I was required to wear them during P.E. I hated them back then because I thought they looked like crap. I mean, they’re basically pants shaped like a skirt in an incredibly awkward length. Can’t they freaking decide if they wanted to […]

Little Secret

Hong Kong’s Central, just like most of Hong Kong’s districts, has an interesting mix of architecture. When you go down its main streets, you’ll see plenty of big stores and buildings in modern architecture. But when you take a little detour down to the smaller side streets, a whole new world greets you. It’s the […]

Hello Again, Hong Kong

You know how when you love something, even the tiniest details make you a little bit happier? That’s how I feel whenever I walk the streets of Hong Kong and hear its traffic lights make those warning sounds. They’re music to my ears! It’s like they’re greeting me, “welcome back, Camille!” And just like that, […]

My Hong Kong Discovery

You’ve already seen a sneak peek of Intercontinental Hong Kong’s famed presidential suite, but believe me when I say the balcony is not even half of what makes it so awesome. Although I was already more than happy with the harbour view room I was given, I was still curious to see how the other side lives. […]

Intercontinental

Just look at this view, taken all the way up from Intercontinental Hong Kong’s presidential suite. Imagine waking up to this every single day. Wow. For a brief moment there, I got to take this all in and pretend I was actually living here. I even dressed the part–choosing to wear something colorful to break the blues and […]

Shine Through

For my second day in Hong Kong, I thought I’d wear something a little bit dressier than my pink outfit that I wore here. Day 1 was already all about simplicity and minimalism so day 2 needed a bit more dazzle. And when I want to dazzle, I don’t skimp on the beads and sequins–no matter […]
