Bryanboy @ NO Magazine New Zealand Issue 4

Remember the spontaneous, last-minute morning shoot I did in Auckland a few months back? Well, the latest NO Magazine (issue four) is out now. Brit naughty IT-girl Peaches Geldof is on the cover.

And here's me in Jaeha who I love and adore. Too bad they didn't show the red hooker heels which I LOVED.

In spite of that busted face after a week's worth of late nights out, I guess you may now add "International Part-Time Supermodel" in my resume. Hahaha! ;-)

Bryanboy for NO Magazine

Bryanboy for NO Magazine

Speaking of Jaeha, I had a photoshoot early today for NO Magazine. I was SO worried I wasn't gonna be able to make the shoot because I got back to my room at round 6 or 6:30AM. Don't ask why because it's a LOOONG story. Anyway, I got up at 10 and I managed to sleep for 2-3 hours... not bad I guess. It would be interesting to see how the photos would look like considering a) I went to the studio all haggard (my skin is shitty and I didn't put make-up on)and b) it was a super quick shoot - no make-up or hair people at all so it was raw. I could only wish for the photo chop gods to do their magic. Haha!

Now. This is me in Jaeha.

Jaeha Fall/Winter 2009 [VIDEO]

Jaeha Fall/Winter 2009 [VIDEO]

Jaeha is definitely one of my fave Kiwi designers and I'm so glad (and honored) to be able to attend his show. Designer Alex Kim held his show off-site in this gorgeous church smack right in the middle of Auckland. It's hysterical how everyone was drinking champagne at 9:30AM inside a church. I love it!

I *LOVE* his new collection! He made all these amazing androgynous tops and jackets with zips. The styling is also superb. So gorgeous! I have TONS of photos for y'all but you're gonna have to wait until I have quality online time.

Bloggers unite! Here's a quick snapshot of Isaac ( and his lovely partner Jordan. I love these two. They took me out to McDonald's the other day at 1AM. Tsk. I know, I know but what can I do? I love junk food...

Isn't it funny how we outqueened (is that even a word LOL) the girl?

World - Fall/Winter 2009

World - Fall/Winter 2009

World is one of New Zealand's most established fashion labels. I first heard of them from Patty a few months back. It's their first time to show after four years and it was World who opened Fashion Week.

God I love Anna!!! She's quite a celeb here in NZ and I think she's one of the prettiest and sweetest girls EVER!

I love, love, LOVE her!

Lunch at Euro, Auckland

Lunch at Euro

In between shows, I went to Euro for lunch. I really love that place.

Euro Restaurant Bar Auckland New Zealand

The service there is very fast, very swift and very efficient. We only had like an hour to spare so I went straight to the main course. I had grilled chicken with mashed potatoes.

Euro Auckland

They knew we were in a hurry and our waiter prepared our bill in advance. NO waiting at all! I thought that was very thoughtful and nice of them.

I'll definitely go back there before I leave for a proper, proper meal.

Hottest Guy Ever.

Hottest Guy Ever.

I swear.

He has a name. Thomas or Tomas, I think. Whatevs.

Clooney Restaurant Auckland, New Zealand

Clooney Restaurant Auckland, New Zealand

Tonight, my dear readers, I had the unfortunate moment of dealing with the RUDEST and most OBNOXIOUS person I've ever encountered in my entire life. I'm no spring chicken and I guess I've been lucky enough to have met many people around the world regardless of their background -- I can say that everyone has been nice so far... but tonight was just the WORST.

Clooney Restaurant Auckland

After the Hailwood show, I went back to the hotel to change clothes. There's an afterparty going on at Clooney's. I thought it would be nice to freshen up, change clothes and go out for a few drinks, especially after a day's worth of shows.

I went there with new acquaintances. I told them I'm gonna meet them indoors in a few minutes because I wanted to smoke a cigarette first --  Dorothy we're not in Embassy este Kansas no more... in Auckland, everyone smokes outside!

I went in after my ciggie and there's a door guy called TONY. I *politely* told him that I'm looking for my friends and I'm alone blah blah blah. He told me it's "full" and I couldn't get in. I thought, oh, ok, whatever.  No big deal. I'm not really used to queues (whatevs...), and there were tons of people behind me so I thought I'd get myself a drink at the bar and wait for my friends there.

A few minutes have passed and I saw people getting out and going in. I saw quite a number of familiar front row faces throughout the shows, also waiting on the queue, and a few ones said hi -- you know me... I'm very friendly to anyone who says hi... I even saw the Brit who sat behind me during the flight from Hong Kong!

To cut the story short, I tried to get in the second time around. Tony (whatever his name is) let me in... I had a quick look inside and I noticed there were quite a number of EMPTY tables. I didn't like the idea of me being alone so I went back to Tony literally AFTER ten seconds just to ask if I could get a table (if there's anything he could assign to me) and invite two or three people with me for a drink. It was a straight-forward, honest, polite question. Lo and behold the polyester-wearing minimum waging door bitch piece of shit (excuse my French) told me "it's either you stay in or you can FUCK OFF with your friends". Those were his EXACT words and he said that WHILE he pushed me out.

I have NEVER encountered anyone SO rude in my entire life. I'm trying to understand that he was just doing his job but that was just vile and foul considering I did my best to be polite at all times. Quite frankly, I could've just left. And that's exactly what I did. Thank god my acquaintances went out a few minutes after that because it was just A-W-F-U-L. Never again I'll set foot in that place.

Everyone in Auckland has been super duper nice so far except for that CUNT

Drama is drama and god knows what other people would do if they were in my shoes but I just left. It is what it is. I hope Tony is being paid VERY HANDSOMELY to be doing that job. I mean come on!!!!

The blue collar/service industry people (hah!) like him must be getting SO MUCH money that he's able to act the way he does. Maybe I should switch careers?

I really hope he loves his oh so super fabulous and oh so super glamorous job.

Can you imagine me working at some restaurant/bar telling people where to sit, where to go or what have you?

YUCK. Yuck talaga.

At the end of the day, I'm not the one holding a clipboard.

That's all I have to say about this matter. Issue closed.


New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark

Prime Minister Helen Clark

I went to the Air New Zealand Fashion Week 2008 opening party tonight. Here's a quick video of the honorable Helen Clark (New Zealand's Prime Minister). I took the vid towards the end of her speech but let me tell you -- she definitely made some very interesting statements earlier. I wish I took a video of the good bits but I was late.

Even John Banks, the Mayor of Auckland, was there. If you ask me, I think it's great -- it's always, always great -- whenever politicians show their support to the fashion industry.
