Beloved homegrown brand GERRY'S GRILL is now open at Island Central Mactan and I couldn't be any happier! For someone who loves anything grilled (save for exotic food), not having to drive all the way to Cebu City to feast on Filipino favorites (SISIG!) is definitely good news!

I am never without a good pair of blue jeans and while I may have embraced a much more feminine approach with dresses and skirts, I still have a few trusted denim pieces that I reach for on days when I'm too lazy to dress up.  My denim pieces, specifically my jeans, are my fail-proof brunch, shopping, movie dates and meetings OOTD choices and with The Metro Stores' recent Big Denim Party Sale, I updated my closet with a few essentials.

I was gonna make this a collective OOTD post of my The Metro Stores shopping haul but decided against it because I want to give you guys something to look forward to in the next few days. Chos. Haha! Seriously though, I'm whipping up a couple of exciting posts in the coming days to make up for my absence here in blogosphere. So there.

Going back...

Ever since the skinny jeans surfaced, I was never without a good pair and this Petrol super stretch high waist number proved to be good choice.

With just the right amount of snugness, this blue jeans wonder hugs me in all the right places (tucking in a few extra pounds of post-vacation belly) without giving me the trouble of putting it on and taking it off.  You gotta admit, there's always that 1 pair of jeans that fits you like a glove but you have to roll on your bed (or floor) when taking it off.  Such a pain, really, but good thing this pair isn't one of those stinkers.

And because I'm still not (or ever will be) over off-the-shoulder tops, I paired this with another closet favorite worn as a one shoulder top to give it a fresh spin.

Tobi Ang on Fatherhood, Work & Style-- A Marks & Spencer Father's Day Special

June 15, 2017

Becoming a father is so much more than just being a pillar of your home-- it requires you to be tough yet gentle, focused and determined yet always gung-ho to make last minute plans to accommodate the little ones.  Here's one young dad's story where we can all learn from about fatherhood, work and style.

What’s keeping 36 year-old Tobi Ang says lately is learning to be a good father to his two young girls, Daniella (2.5y.o.) and Natalia (10 months) and "father" and leader of The Angcore Motor Group, where he sits as vice-president and COO.

“My day always starts waking up and spending time with my girls. The girls, Michelle, my wife, and our two girls are early risers, so I get to spend some quality family time with them before heading to the office,” shares Tobi.

We caught up with Tobi and his family in their lovely home. Over coffee, the young dad shared how he manages his time between being a dad, husband, and a businessman. 

And since we can confidently say he is one of Davao’s well-dressed young men, we wanted to find out how his manner of dressing has changed from being single to becoming a dad.

What’s family time like?

Any time I get to spend with my wife and kids is quality family time for me. Usually, our best moments are those spent at home.

As for fatherhood, it’s is my greatest challenge and responsibility. I hope I'm able to raise good kids, who will become positive contributors to society. 

And husband and wife time?

Since our kids are still very young, we barely get our own time. We try to squeeze in a vacation once in a while, otherwise, we just put on our headphones and enjoy watching our favorite TV Shows while the kids are fast asleep.

How about “me” time?

The Angcore Group has Kia, Chevrolet & Mahindra dealerships in the Davao region and General Santos, so I barely have "me" time. But I am a big believer in staying healthy in order to maximize the time you have and what you can do with it. So, I try my best to allocate time for working out. Lately, it's been rowing, Pilates and HIIT Training three times a week. It clears my mind and gives me the energy to keep up with my kids.

What’s your fashion style?

I used to dabble in more fashion forward and trendy styles when I was much younger, but I've since moved on to a more classic look. I always go with what makes me feel comfortable and confident to take on anything. If you call that my signature look, then I'll go with it.

I was never good at following fashion icons. I see something I like and I get inspired by the look, but I don't take note of who was wearing it. 

Has the closet contents changed much now that you’re married with kids?

I'd say I'm a much more practical dresser these days. When you have kids who are as active as mine, it's difficult to maintain a blazer, well pressed shirt or polished leather shoes. I used to travel with all those items checked. Nowadays, I accessorize with a hip seat carrier, diaper backpack, cargo pants & sneakers. 

I wear polo shirt, jeans or slacks and loafers during the day, and when there are nice events, I don't mind putting on a good suit every now and then.  I always try to dress appropriately for every occasion.

Who shops for you?

I do a lot of my own shopping and do it when I have to, so it's not that often. I try to limit my clothes to what I can wear and let go of items I no longer use. 

Do you set a price limit when shopping for clothes?

I always look at value for money, so price is relative. I buy things of good value, and I never spend on something I'm not comfortable wearing. If I have to worry about damaging what I'm wearing, and have to be extra careful, then it's too expensive for me. I usually buy brands that feel & look good and stay that way for quite a while. 

Your Lola Pat (Montemayor) is an avid M&S shopper. How does M&S appeal to you?

M&S will always be relevant and it appeals to all generations. But personally, it will always have a special place in my heart, since I bought my first suit from their Shangri-la branch for my junior prom a few decades ago.

What important piece of clothing should a dad have in his wardrobe?

Comfortable shoes, and maybe a good watch that tells you when it's time to go home.
