Day 36/365: Scotch in a Cowboy County

Day 36/365: Scotch in a Cowboy County

February 5, 2011 (Saturday)

I have this hat from my Ilocos Trip and Checkered Scarf from Springfield. What to do with it? Cowboy Dude! Add some bottle of Whisky, patterns of Cowboy County and presto! A commercial like endorsement for Chivas Regal!

Am not a hard drinker, but most of the commercial for this kind of liquor profess the epitome of a man’s achievement and toast for it success, which is good. But how about for a group of man which we literally Filipinos called “cowboys” not the elite, and the “sosyal” or pa-sosyal. The Filipino cowboy guys that can strike anywhere and doesn’t mind the place, food to eat and it’s smell. These are the cool guys who is for the Fun and not for the formality of the gathering. That’s right, they are the Red Horse platoon and its beer success to link it with Horse-Cowboy’s is a huge commercial success.

So here’s my version for the Chivas Regal, it is monarchical by name from the knights kingdom to a cowboy county!

Day 36/365

About Chivas:

James and John Chivas’ ambition was ‘to provide customers with products of the highest quality.’ Because the Single Malts of the time were harsh and often poorly matured, they dreamt of creating a whisky that could be easily appreciated and shared amongst friends. This was soon realized as the store in Aberdeen became an Epicurean delight. As well as scouring the Highlands and Lowlands in their search for fine things for their wealthy clientele to eat and drink, they provided products from all across the world – rich coffee, exotic spices, the finest French Brandies and rums from the Caribbean. They found however that they were unable to provide a whisky that met their exacting standards.

Blending together only the finest aged whiskies, they produced a smooth and generous product that was very different to others available at the time. Word of their new whisky soon spread. And before long it became unthinkable for a host to entertain guests without a bottle of their whisky in his hand. It was this passion for blending superb whiskies and years of perfecting their art, that led to the creation of the ultimate blend, that of Chivas Regal.

When Queen Victoria began entertaining guests at her Balmoral Estate in Scotland, the search immediately began for a discrete and reliable supplier who could provide the finest food, liqueurs and spirits. Before long, in 1843, James Chivas received a letter announcing that, due to their excellent service, Chivas Brothers had been granted a Royal Warrant to supply goods to the Queen Victoria. It was the start of a long and harmonious relationship between Chivas Brothers and the Royal family.

The start of the 20th Century and America was in the full glory of cultural adolescence, bursting with energy and optimism. Construction was booming and New York was fast catching up with London, the theatre capital of the world, gaining in clout, size and sophistication . This is when Chivas Regal was created, targeted at this fast expanding Northern American market. It entered the market in the Autumn of 1909 and by December 1909, the Chivas Brothers agents were already wiring Aberdeen requesting more stock of Chivas Regal. By May 1910, less than one year after entering the market, Chivas Regal had become the most talked about of new imported consumer goods among the well-to-do stratum of New York Society.

Chivas Regal is justifiably proud of its Scottish ancestry, but the real secret of this iconic whisky and its commercial success lies across the Atlantic. It’s here that James and John Chivas’ vision met the American people’s growing appetite for life – and the rest, as they say, is history.

Turn of the century America was a land of unrivalled opportunity. Fortunes were built in a matter of years and everything seemed possible. Chivas Regal, with its smooth generous taste, seemed to embody the quality and craftsmanship that the ‘new’ Americans still held in high regard from the ‘old world’ and was quickly adopted in the finest homes throughout the USA. Initially the brand lacked the outward, luxury presentation that American consumers were looking for. But this was soon solved by the development of the distinctive packaging that remains to this day for Chivas Regal 12 Year Old. A special, silver carton indented with heraldic symbols, reflecting its noble Scottish lineage and the chivalry of the ancient Scottish Clans. A prelude to the rich and generous whisky that lies inside.

After World War II, America was once again a land of incredible optimism and razzmatazz. The war had been won and America was experiencing a new age of prosperity. These were the Golden Years: America was changing dramatically. Affluence had brought worldly success, and now that attention was firmly on fun and living life to the full. The “Rat Pack” captured the mood of this era more than anyone. And at the heart of it all??.. Chivas Regal.

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and the rest. Cooler than the ice in a heavy tumbler of Chivas Regal, wise guys every one of them, sizing everyone up, then giving them the golden tap on the shoulder and bringing them in. They performed on stage together, acted together and partied together. Chivas Regal soon became a symbol of their exuberant lifestyle – a luxury that seemed to mirror both their enthusiasm for life and the underlying quality that provided the foundation for their self-belief.

Chivas Regal is often described as the smoothest Scotch whisky in the world. It’s the ultimate testament to the work of the Master Blender whose quest is to carry on the vision of James and John Chivas. Master Blender Colin Scott states, “I’m one of a long line of Master Blenders at Chivas Brothers and as such I am the guardian of their unique style of whisky. I’m fortunate to be able to draw upon such an unrivalled stock of ageing whisky. One of the most extensive in the whole of Scotland.”

Chivas Regal Master Blender Colin Scott – Photo Courtesy of Chivas Regal James and John Chivas had a vision to create a blended whisky to be enjoyed and shared. It’s a vision that was fulfilled years later – in the form of Chivas Regal. Their inspiration is still ever present today. Chivas Regal is the world’s favourite premium whisky – enjoyed in over 200 countries. So wherever you are, you’ll find Chivas Regal at the heart of almost any occasion where good times are being shared with friends. Welcome to ‘The Chivas Life’.

Day 11/365: Just the way you are

January 11, 2011 (Tuesday)

I see to it I never stuck with the 80’s song and my genre evolves and always updated. Well, cheers to Bruno Mars! and he was able to revive my music interest, but I must admit I’m so outdated to sing his tunes. My balladeer style doesn’t suit his voice tone and it’s too nasal for me. The harder I tried the high pitch I sound πŸ˜› so I’d rather appreciate his music and dance with my head.

For those who love his music his a guitar pitch for your reference. Enjoy!

Day 11/365

Artist: Bruno Mars
Song: Just the Way You Are
Album: Doo-Wops & Hooligans

Capo 3

Intro:
D Bm
Ah, ah ah ah
G D
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah

D
Oh her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they’re not shining
Bm
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
G D
She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day

D
Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her she won’t believe me
Bm
And it’s so, it’s so sad to think she don’t see what I see
G D
But every time she asks me do I look okay, I say

Chorus:
D Bm
When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change
G D
Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are
D Bm
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile
G D
Cause girl you’re amazing, just the way you are, (yeah)

D
Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she’d let me
Bm
Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it’s so sexy
G D
She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day

D
Oh, you know, you know, you know I’d never ask you to change
Bm
If perfect is what you’re searching for, then just stay the same
G D
So, don’t even bother asking if you look okay, you know I’ll say

Chorus

D Bm
The way you are, the way you are
G D
Girl you’re amazing, just the way you are

An impromptu shoot with Ms. Marjorie Obras.

Our theme: Color Speaks! Hot Pink, Classic White and Nature Colors. We are fortunate to have this very nice garments being used for long gowns from Carolina’s. Inspired how Lady Gaga looks but not as weird and provocative as Gaga, we highlight a classic age on a modern era.

About Marj:

Zodiac: Leo

People tend to see me as a snob, weird, a bit sour when they first met me, but anyone who really knows me sees my sweet heart… I give my love and friendship unconditionally. I also enjoy long, thoughtful conversations. I am a very open minded person, but also well grounded. Tolerant and flexible, I appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints. But I know where I stand firm, and I can draw that line. I am open to considering every possibility – but in the end, I always stand true to myself. (Pinky Promise!)

Romancing the 50’s

Creative Director: Rman Nepomuceno Lorenzo

Location Shoot:
El Hogar Filipino, This beautiful beaux-arts building, designed by architect Irrureta Goyena and set by the Pasig River on Muelle dela Industria in Binondo, was built as a wedding gift for the union of a Zobel daughter and a Peruvian count back in 1914. It housed the offices of the lending company El Hogar Filipino (hence its name) and the original headquarters of Ayala Life Insurance Company. After World War II, the building found itself in the hands of the Fernandez clan who still run the building till this day.

Why Romancing the 50’s? This is the post war era, after the Japanese-American War in the late 1940’s. An era of overwhelming emotions brought by the war depression. This is the same era when Ramon Magsaysay reunited the Filipino people as a new independent nation. And same era when my grand parents started their courtships and romancing. My lola and lolo’s story about the Americans and the Japanese people and how they survive the war and fought for their love.

My Lolo Abel, a good cook and a “cuchero” (Kalesa Driver) fancy his charm of courting my Lola Naty with daily flowers and Origami creations. He said, he always waits for my Lola Naty to ride his Kalesa every morning. My Lola Naty, a fine lady from Malabon and a beauty contest winner of Miss Malabon Charity who came from a very strict family need to skip her car ride just to see my Lolo Abel. Their romance started in 1940’s when there’s so much fears and chaos due to war. Their bondage as a Nepomuceno happens at late 40’s and the 50’s brought new romance with their children’s and their interesting stories too. My mother born in the late 40’s tells interesting stories about her crushes in her early teenage life during the 1950’s and so as my aunties and uncles sweet fairy tale like romance during these era. I would say my photo project creativity can start with these era having seen the photos of my uncles and aunties on their formal wear and their fancy smiles. And reading the Philippines history during the 1950’s is truly inspiring and I’m hoping to get more information for my readers and visitors to continue a series of Romancing the 50’s.

The late 50’s also made a history in Broadway for the West Side Story, the phenomenal songs like Maria, One Hand One Heart and Somewhere which unto this date are the most popular in wedding ceremonies.

So what’s your idea of 1950’s?

Eminent Light Workshop by Manny Librodo Jr.

Eminent Light Workshop by Manny Librodo Jr.

January 2, 2010
Location: Noveleta, Cavite City
MODEL/MUA: Kharunizia Jazmin and Bambi Dela Cruz
Workshop: Eminent Light
Producer : Mr. Aly Reyes
Lead Photographer/Director: Manny Librodo Jr.

This is my 3rd workshop with the master of portraiture himself Manny Librodo Jr. There were a quite number of participants in the workshop and you need to be very aggressive to take your shot, otherwise you’ll be left always at the back. The weather then was very humid and I’m really having an advance summer feeling while shooting! Anyway, thanks for the good food of Malen’s Restaurant, to compensate the workshop challenges.

To the production staff/organizer – Aly, Martin, Harie, Joel and Derick – you guys are really cool and funny all the times. Fun Fun Fun! Kudos to you all!

Also, I wish I could go back to Noveleta to take shots of their very interesting mini-bus/jeepney and the Aguinaldo Shrine. Anyway’s enjoy viewing my latest post of Eminent Light in textures πŸ™‚

Till then @ My Life Best Shots,
Rman

January 7, 2010
Sacred Heart Parish, Cebu City
Abaca Boutique Hotel, Mactan Island

I’m the claimed official photographer of their pre-nup and the unofficial “sniper” photographer on their wedding. Together with a shooting buddy- Mr Kaloi Yap, we travel to Cebu to witness their ceremony vows. The church was so beautiful, their windows and lightings were all superb for available lights. The flowers in the isles were really adorable and blends well in their colour-motiff and the reception area – Abaca, perfect!

This is my first wedding I attended in Cebu City, and the chorale who sang at their wedding was really awesome! I thought its just a CD being played, and was surprised to see them marching out after the ceremony…like oh no its live!….Bravo!

I cant do much of the shots during the wedding since the altar boy was very strict and always looking at me, and yes I have to be at the front too since I was assigned to do the First Reading…yeah multi tasking! I think i’m a lost kuya of the bride knowing she got 3 other sisters and no brother on the house! so there πŸ™‚ I’m the declared kuya for a while.

So since there was a Mr Official Photographer to take care of them, I just focus on the guest and do portrait shots which was really fun, it was’nt just a typical hey there guys “smile” look at me! but do your pose, express your eyes, hold it, hold it…click! And presto! it seems the family and guests were all enjoying being captured on our cameras. And I think they have to! they were all dressed up and look equally gorgeous like the bride.

So there you go..enjoy viewing the bride and the groom…and their family and friends πŸ™‚

Till next at my life best shots,
Rman

About Midnight Green:

Midnight green (sometimes called eagle green) is a dark shade of green. It is also a dark shade of cyan. This can be readily ascertained by noting the fact that this color’s red value is zero, and also that its green and blue values are almost equal

Midnight Green is closely identical to Dioptase Gemstone.

Dioptase is a powerful stone to awaken love and compassion and to heal emotional distress. The beautiful green ray of dioptase makes it a heart stone on many levels.

Dioptase supports the emotional heart, strengthens the physical heart and awakens the spiritual heart. Meditate with dioptase to open your inner eyes to your higher purpose.

Other Meanings:

-Releases emotional patterns
-Assists in understanding roles we have played as well as the roles of others in our lives
-Excellent stone to emotionally assist in experiencing divorce, death, or any intense family trauma
-Stimulates forgiveness and healing of emotional wounds

Sources of Dioptase

The best quality dioptase is found in copper deposits in Russia, Namibia, Zaire, Chile, and US (Arizona).
