November daw
It will be staffed mostly with Bulgari personnel, and also others  from that fancy watch store under Mario Katigbak.

aquacharly, pag na invite ka sa grand opening...baka pwede guest mo ako?   ;D  Kya lang I don't have an Hermes bag, just a bangle. ;D

Malaking malaking XXXXX temptation itong Hermes! 
Bad for my money

WE will see ha.  Kasi even if I am invited, usually I do not go.  I bank on my good relations with the Manager/SA to tell me what will be there... and to get it for me.   I do not belong to the economic group that burns money, and just burns it... I work eh, it is not a case of burning OPM (other people's money, LOL)  kaya nababagyo ako sa mga just grab what is the latest without thinking.... or grab and grab and grab without thinking.

Pero itong Hermes na ito... hmmmm the way I see it... it is gonna be a typhoon in that store?  As in pahanginan?  LOL 

PRISMA sabi ko a few months ago, may araw ka din.  I think it will be sooner than later... you will find yourself lugging an Hermes around. 
It is 1 of the experiences we gotta give ourselves, ownership of an Hermes, preferably a Birkin.  Life is short...

WEll, that is my opinion -- that a Birkin is worth spending on.  Nabato na ako bothways on that... by those who say kelangan pag sumampa ka nang Hermes, hindi ka na gamit ng other brands like LVs, unless pamalengke.  Hello?! hehe    Nabato na rin ako nang other side .... na whats in a Birkin?  Kayang kaya daw nila to live without it, even if they can afford it.  Owz, can afford?  hehe

You want an invite?  Pupunta ka talaga?  Or, hehe eto nanaman tayo -- we get our respective LV invites pero we never go.  hehe   

And FRIEDFISH -- I really do not know why b1tchy people work in marketing nor bother to take calls.  My, how they torture themselves ha...   their envy? bitterness? unhappiness with their jobs? sure corrode their souls.  Dapat change jobs na lang. 

What the heck, even a Birkin is just a bag.  It can never define you, though it can make you look laughable.  LOL   Kahit na plastic bag yan, basta it serves your purpose at that point in time... that is a good thing.

Naisip ko nga eh... if the flood waters rise.... maalala ko pa ba my Birkins?   

Personally, I do not feel comfortable about the thought of entering such an attention-grabbing store right there on the kalye.... Doon na lang ako sa Four Seasons at Macau mambwisit ng Hermes SA.

What do I want?  I want an Hermes throw... yung parang small blanket na gray with the H all over.  Good for car and plane use... good to throw on a kid di ba, it sure looks lightweight but warm.  Pero isipin ko pa baka naman kelangan ko pa nang another bag to put it in when traveling.  Ang baho kasi nang plane blankets --- bugbog sa dryclean siguro.

FRIEDFISH -- yes it is Mr Huang who is the visible stockholder... but for the high end lines of SSI, it is Mario Katigbak who runs operations.  Like the Holo... basta, yung mga high end watches, nabulol na ako with the word eh.  LOL, plus Bulgari.   Ramon
Agustin  runs Gucci and Bottega, and I do not know what else.

I get 20% discount basta SSI, same as what the employees get after a year of service ata-- I am not an employee, never was one -- how do I know? tsismosa lang talaga ako eh. hehe   
I am crossing my fingers the 20% holds for Hermes too.  Pero hndi ko inuunahan,  basta place my orders 1st at baka ma de-list ako LOL if alam pagpukpukan ko the 20% discount.

Aquacharly,

(Knock on wood)..to date..talagang hindi pa ako na "charm" ng hermes....maybe for various reasons ( let me list it out,  ;Dhehe):

1.) no space to store them
2.) structured kasi ( sold my trevi nga e, I like slouchy bags)
3.) I am a housewife working  part time  in a backroom and don't go to parties and meetings.
4.) alam ng social circle ko how much Hermes costs so parang taboo talaga lest I be judged.
 

At least LV-  common lang sa social circle ko, Bbag ( although sikat na din) , Chloe, miumiu, Gucci leather and some chanels hindi halatang luxury.     

Oo nga, if I go to the Hermes party...ma out of place lang me.  I went once to LV GB's party years ago- para ma try lang that was when they launched those shiny bags ( sorry forgot the name) , felt out of place and trying hard to socialize..maybe I just don't have the ready smile and attitude for it.

ohhh.. well, hello Hermes?

sa dating Max Brenner pala ito? I felt sad naman when I went to Greenbelt 2 months ago when watching The Proposal. I told fiance, Tara, Max Brenner tayo! only to find out baklas na yung name nila sa building. gusto ko pa naman yung place kasi perfect tambay, gilid sa kalsada. now, it's Hermes! d kaya the place is too small for Hermes? compare to LV, Gucci, etc.. the shops "inside" are bigger ha.
I am happy. I am blessed. I feel loved. I am in love.

Last December my Mom and Dad asked me kung anong gusto kung birthday gift when i turn 25..I told them i want hermes birkin bag kasi yun yung ultimate dream bag ko..Sabi nila mahirap yan kasi sobrang mahal.

I celebrated my bday last august..Kagabi lang binigay yung belated bday gift nila sakin kasi bago lang dumating..Pag open ko nung box nandun na ang Black and Red birkin..I cried sa sobrang saya..Naging dalawa agad birkin ko na hindi ko ini expect..Sabi ni Mom hiraman daw kami...so sweet my parents.. ;D

^^oh my, hindi ko talaga ma- gets kung bakit ganito kamahal ang mga bag ng hermes.

mukhang di ko man lang papasukan itong store na ito...wala naman kasi akong mabibili! at kung meron man, LV na lang makakatipid pako. :)
