There’s a temporary showroom / boutique of local clothing brand harlan + holden smack right in the middle of Greenbelt 5. I had a luncheon meeting in Chateau 1991 last August and the store wasn’t there yet. I had lunch with Richmond and Jess at the same restaurant yesterday and meron na bigla nito.

Harlan + holden is just their brand name and not the name of the owners. There is no particular meaning according to the store manager.
They’ll be here till end of October. Their permanent stores are in Rockwell, Shangrila Mall. They also have merchandise inside Adora in Greenbelt where they started selling their products in 2010.

According to the sales lady, Tim Yap and Liz Uy wore these shoes in their trip to Bhutan to test them.

The shoes are called camino, the Spanish word for path.

Nice no? Medyo I felt a little sad lang after I saw the stamp inside, made in China. That kind of stopped me from impulsively buying them. That reminds me, I keep buying Jessica dresses, I think they are also from China. There’s nothing wrong with made in China products except that our country has a major territorial dispute with them. Although the ruling says the waters and islands belong to the Philippines, our mainland relatives are still there and continue to build infrastructures. I believe the next developments would be in their favor because of our new government’s uncanny closeness to my Chinese forefathers. And not only that, many illegal drug laboratories discovered around our country are manned by our neighbors too.
Love for country first, love your neighbors fifth.
