full of books

we're pretty sure you all know about the new fully booked superbookstore at bonifacio high street, which has four floors of books and stuff (the stuff being notebooks, pens, other school and office supplies, as well as CDs and DVDs). last night was their formal opening, and by the time we got there, the party was in full swing. after signing up at reception, we got a giant red tote bag and a fab coffee-table book, lonely planet's "the cities book" (woo-hoo, swag!). there was the evening's program host sam oh on the ground floor who looked like she was having a conversation with carlos celdran via video con. he was giving guests a "walking tour" upstairs... and there was the guy responsible for bringing all these books in, jaime daez (rumor has it he has over 200-million pesos worth of inventory—is that why he looks so happy, kasi mayaman na sha at yumayaman pa?)... here's your guide to find what you want (take note of starbucks logo ;-): we recommend this section when you want to hide from the world and don't want to be found for a couple hours... our favorite section, where we found the likes of designer rajo laurel, preview editor in chief pauline juan, and of course, ahem, the fash pack... and here's the best kind of customer service (although it was only for last night. too bad...):
