The nine lives of Baron Geisler

Cebu Daily News - - LIFE - (Clint Holton Potestas)

I knew I had to do it. When I re­ceived a text mes­sage from Jeck Yap, the head coun­selor of the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­ter where Baron Geisler is at, I only had less than 24 hours to gather my team be­fore the ap­point­ment.

The new seg­ment “Trend­ing” de­buts to­day, a rip off of “Style of the Month” that has been ap­pear­ing ev­ery first Wed­nes­day of the month for an in-depth fash­ion news cov­er­age since Fe­bru­ary 2018.

But un­like our monthly spe­cial, this an­swers the im­me­di­acy of pop culture that I would merge with lo­cal fash­ion.

And to go with the times, “Trend­ing” has no spe­cific pub­li­ca­tion sched­ule—be­cause it is a ser­vant of the break­ing news in our field of watch.

I al­ready had the con­cept of this seg­ment, but I was wait­ing for the right cov­er­age to launch it.

I men­tally re­served Yvonne Quisumb­ing’s menswear collection for a fea­ture of some­one who is pro­por­tioned to her ethos af­ter she launched it in Manila.

As her cus­tomer since 2013, I knew how my friend ac­cepted the truce for highly tai­lored pieces.

The rants, on the other hand, were de­coded and left on our cof­fee ta­ble sev­eral after­noons at the mall, shar­ing only one piece of crois­sant.

It’s a tie for Yvonne and Baron—although much had been said about Baron in show busi­ness.

But here, we raise the cur­tain for the truest of the many lives he has ever had.

One of them, too, is be­ing the Heath Ledger of my life.
