Bryan Grey Yambao – aka Bryanboy – has been blogging since way before The New Potato was even a seed of an idea. We (and everybody else in the world) covet absolutely everything he wears, and one could say he was one of the first when it comes to personal style blogging (something that can’t be said of many). His outfits are to die for, his personality is infectious and his restaurant choices are right on the money – could we ask for more? Start your Thursday with some swagger and style…
What would be your ideal food day?
A banana and apple for breakfast, lunch at home (grilled chicken delivered by my local Vietnamese restaurant) while in my pajamas, and dinner (spicy beef salad followed by red snapper) at Indochine.
What’s your drink?
BluePrint lime, ginger, lemon and agave juice in the morning, water for lunch, and a Lychee Martini and vodka soda at night. Detox then retox in twelve hours!
How do you start your day on a good note?
At least four hours of sleep, a Venti Americano from Starbucks with no sugar or cream and Marlboro Lights.
What’s your afternoon snack?
I love late lunches and I’m not really a big fan of snacking. Therefore, none.
What’s always in your fridge and why?
I can only blame Seamless Web for ensuring my fridge is always empty. No joke! I literally have two bottles of Sancerre and a bottle of Kettle One – perfect for a night cap. Home-cooked meals are rare (and a luxury) in my apartment. I save them for special occasions.
What are you favorite places to travel to?
Stockholm for shopping, Istanbul for the sights, and Bali for vacation and personal pampering.
Your other “must-reads” besides your own site…
I’ll be honest – Instagram and Twitter killed all forms of site-hopping. I can’t remember the last time my laptop gave a website a unique pageview.
How has the web changed since you launched?
When I first started my current site, Bryanboy.com, in 2004, the word “blog” was not a dirty word. In fact, most people had no clue what a blog was. Fast forward almost ten years later, and every living entity on this planet, my mother and my five-year-old niece included (I was shocked when she joined Instagram at four years old), is an online content producer. We truly live in a digital age.
What won’t you travel without?
In this order: wallet, cellphone, laptop, camera, toothbrush, and toothpaste.
