The wedding festivities are finally over. And it is nice to have my feet on solid ground after 4 months. Albeit 7kg heavier and married, H and I don't feel as though much has changed, except for the fact that we live in Manila now.   The last time we were back in Singapore, Cirque Du Soleil TOTEM was in town and it was nice to be able to take the family to enjoy the show before our rock star wedding tour.

Here's Annabel, the head of the design team, who is fitting me with some of the new Spring/Summer 2016 items to make sure they are functional. Then, if the fit is not right, Annabel will pin the part where adjustments need to be made. Read the Post FASHION: Behind the Scenes at TXID
