I'm glad that I was once again invited to Freeway Loves Art Ang Kiukok National Artist Collector's Series Launch last October 27, 2009 at The Row, Glorietta 5. This time the collection features the artwork of National Artist Ang Kiukok, a visionary genius.
Freeway presented the full collection in a fashion show. The Brazilian models wore unique hat pieces to complement their Ang Kiukok outfits and their fab make-up was done by VMV Hypoallergenics.
Jocas De Leon, daughter of Mr. Joey De Leon, hosted the event. Art critic Cid Reyes also participated by reading his essay and with Dr. William Chua (a prominent collector) they shared with the audience some facts about Ang Kiukok and his work. Mr. Joey De Leon was also interviewed to share his memorable experiences with the artist and how he became a collector of his paintings.
Lucky guests (including me!) who won the raffle at the end of the program either got a Freeway gift certificate or VMV Hypoallergenics GCs. Ang Kiukok limited edition tote bags were also given away as gifts to all attendees.

Women nowadays rely on anti-aging facial services from dermatologists and beauty spa centers. However, these professional services are very expensive and some women could not afford to undergo a facial spa that costs around Php 2,000 - Php 3,000 per visit.
Good news is, the Anew Rejuvenate Line from Avon is easy on the pocket. You can also have the convenience to rejuvenate your skin whenever you need it, so you don't have to worry about going to facial skin care centers.
Revitalizing 2-in-1 Gel Cleanser
Revitalizing Mineral Toner
Flash Facial - Revitalizing Concentrate
Revitalizing Day Cream with SPF 25 UVA/UVB
Revitalizing Night Cream
24 Hour Eye Cream for Day & Night
Studies, tests, and observations have shown comparable or even superior results of Anew Rejuvenate than other anti-aging facials. In just 3 days, a remarkable reduction of lines and wrinkles will be noticed, smoother skin, and refined pore size and skin tone. In 7 days, 100% showed an improvement in skin texture and 77% showed less pore clogging. And in 8 weeks or 2 months time, skin will look up to 5 years younger!
Here's how Anew Rejuvenate works like a professional facial spa with these technologies:
- Step 1: Exfoliation (Deep cleans to smoothen tough texture, lessen appearance of
deep lines) Exfo-Smoothing Complex stimulates the exfoliation step to reveal smoother skin texture & lessen the appearance of deep lines.
- Step 2: Extraction (Brings out impurities from the pores, helps shrink pores, refine
complexion) Mini-Extraction Technology Complex replicates the extraction step to deep clean & shrink pores
- Step 3: Moisturization (Evens out skintone for a seamless, smoother appearance.) Facial FX Technology Complex is moisturization that strengthens cell bonds and makes skin look smooth & even-toned
I'm currently loving the ANEW Rejuvenate FLASH Facial Revitalizing Concentrate. Keep posted for the upcoming review!
The second wave of Freeway's National Artist Collection's Series has already been launched! The first of the series featured the beautiful words of a literary genius, Nick Joaquin and now for visual arts, Freeway is proud to feature the powerful paintings of Ang Kiukok in their clothing line.
Ang Kiukok was originally named Hua Shing by his Chinese parents. He always had a fondness for drawing since childhood so in 1952, he decided to study fine arts in Manila. On December 10, 1954 he finally put up an art exhibit at the Contemporary Arts Gallery showcasing his 29 watercolor painting and two done in oil.
Considered as a visual genius, he won several awards including the 5th Shell Students Art Competition in 1955, a special award for his work Blind Musicians, an honorary mention for Still Life, and in year 2001 he was then hailed to become a National Artist by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
Some of his favorite subjects (Scream, Dog, Harvest, and the ever popular Clowns) are printed in Freeway's limited edition collection consisting of graphic tees, outerwear, woven tops, dresses, Men’s graphic tees and accessories such as: bags, fashion jewelry, and a watch.
Here's the full collection with details and prices. Click the photos to enlarge.
