Indeed, life is full of surprises. When I decided to move back to my hometown in late 2009, I didn’t have any future plans. All I knew was that Makati life no longer appealed to me. I wanted to come home, to build a real life. I had had enough of the rat race, of chasing after deadlines, of living on fast forward.
Of course, as in anything in life, the reality of living back home did not meet the fantasies I had of Bacolod life. The adjustment was tough in the beginning. My bf (now hubby) still lived an hour’s ferry ride away, and I no longer had my RBG family to hang out with. Eventually, things fell into place. I rediscovered old friendships and nurtured new ones.
On December 28, 2010, hubby and I embarked on our greatest adventure yet. A year later, we have now teamed up with good friends, Luisa and Fay to begin our adventure with Vafalu Design. What was once just a dream is now a reality. Welcome Vafalu.
Special thanks to Nichola Mapa and Mimin Parreno for this fun shoot. It’s early days yet. During this “soft” season in Vafalu’s life, we’ve decided to focus on Kolasa shirts for the upcoming St. Scholastica’s Academy Alumni Homecoming slated on February 11, 2012. Cheers to more creative years with Vafalu.
