Molto felice… Häagen-Dazs now in Ilocos!

Barely a year ago, randomly, I blogged about this.

And now you can ask me the whereabouts of first-rate ice cream. Don’t call me un-Filipino when it comes to my ice cream… I adore dirty ice cream and Arce Dairy. I liked the old Selecta… but you can never make me have the new Selecta and Magnolia, and Nestlé, unless it’s vanilla, which I want with my Pepsi or rootbeer. As is, just too sugary and cloying for my taste. Not to mention, parang either may sobra or kulang parati.

How sweet of Rob IN to carry Häagen-Dazs. Baguio Country Club was the nearest outlet to Laoag. Oh, Häagen-Dazs fans are gonna be much excited!

Jaynny Lao on spotlight

Young Laoagueño Jaynny Lao successfully launched her career as a fashion designer in a fabulous 6-piece evening gown  fashion show after having been awarded second honors in the recent Tourismo Abel Iluko Competition for her white abel masterpiece, also one of the featured gowns on the catwalk last night. The show culminated the weeklong Vertext EXPO 2010 Pa-Auction, a 15 pieces per day  cellphone and video cam auction sale at the Robinsons Ilocos Norte. Vertext, one of the leading cellphone loading and distribution businesses in Ilocos, is owned and managed by Jaynny’s brother, young entrepeneur and soon to be CEO, Handy Lao, with the able support of their other brothers: Jonel, the overall manager of all Vertext stores, Allan, the operations manager, and BJ, the key accounts head.

The designer, Jaynny Lao

25-year old Jaynny, who started fashion sketching when she was six, admires Christian Dior, Vera Wang, successful Filipina  fashion designer to Hollywood stars, Monique Lhullier, and our very own fashion darling, Rajo Laurel. She studied fashion design at Cora Doloroso in Manila. She does everything — choosing the fabric, cutting, sewing and embellishing. When asked about her inspirations, she said, “It starts with the fabric. I just have to feel the fabric, then I will have something playing up in my mind.” She is very particular on how the fabric drapes, and her creations always have details in them… details such as trimming, beadwork, ruching and draping.
