I just came home from the Power Plant Mall. I haven't been there in AGES since we live in a galaxy far, far away from Makati. I wasn't able to look around much, though, because we were going to have dinner with my grandparents, but I managed to gather a lot of material for my blog and shop a little bit in the former Independent Lifestyles Section, now known as the Archaeology wing. I've also done a little research in the past few days, so I'm here to share a quick update.
Here are some bits of useful shopping information:
1. Rafē in Makati
This is probably a bit too late already, since my post on Rafē bags was posted early April, but for those who have been living under a rock (or those who live far from Makati, like yours truly) I'll just post it anyway. Rafē is available at Rustan's Makati and Mix at Greenbelt. You will fall in love with his luxury bags that exude relaxed chicness.
2. Aranaz Bag Reservations

The big transparent tote with additional pouches from the new Aranaz bag collection (above) is not available at the Power Plant branch yet. I asked about it and they said it's still "in the making" but you can have a bag reserved. I didn't reserve one just yet but I left my contact details so that they can inform me once the new design arrives. It's best to see the bag first before making any reservations because it might only look nice in photos (or in this case, in the sketch.) The bags available in the store were all gorgeous, though. Too bad I already went bag shopping recently. Perhaps I should write for Kikay Exchange more often for extra shopping moolah (wink, wink!)
