Living in Laguna, it’s pretty hard for me to go out and hang with friends. I’m lucky that I get to work with some of them, if only online. I’m particularly glad to drop by Heima and work in their projects, and this specific project excited me so much it had me going back and forth to the city.

Just in time for Manila Design Week, Heima launched their Garden Stories Collection. I was so happy to be a small part of it: I made 2 paper cutout and collage posters! As the Heima team describes their new collection:

Inspired by the beauty of nature and childhood memories, Garden stories collection celebrates life’s tranquil moments and fun warm afternoons spent running around in open gardens. Garden Stories aims to bring back the importance of nature in people’s everyday lives. People say green is the most relaxing colour to lay your eyes on and, with Heima’s new collection of furniture, the brand would like to offer people the sense of peace, relaxation and easy living when going home after a hard day’s work.

I attended the intimate collection launch last October 26, and I’m surprised at all the furniture they produced! I was told that it would be a smaller collection, but it doesn’t look and feel smaller at all. The variety of furniture – more at home with greens and blooms – is pretty much more experimental and wider than the past collections.

Aaaaand… I finally got to visit UP Town Center!

My college blockmates have been talking about reunions. After attending Pat and Rik’s talk at Ayala Museum and Ninel’s exhibit some weekends back, we all realized that we miss each other, and it would be really nice if we can have a small lunch somewhere.

I convinced them to try out the restaurants in UP Town, so I can take pictures of Vanilla Cupcake Bakery hehe. 🙂 After taking pictures of the store, my camera died. No reunion pics, unfortunately!

December is upon us and it would be a busy month for me once again, and this makes me miss the city much more. I hope to meet friends again, even in short lunches and coffee, because I really miss everyone!

Heima is also the title of the documentary film of one of my favorite bands Sigur Ros. It means Home, diba? No wonder it looks so homey! 🙂
