Up, Up And Away!

Practically everyone I know is already off to some summer destination this time of the year. I’m sure most of you guys are as well. But if you’re one of the few who still don’t have your summer travel plans figured out, don’t fret. Make the most out of what’s left for summer without traveling […]

Travel Diary: Beautiful Sumilon

Despite the series of unfortunate events I encountered in Bluewater Sumilon Island Resorts (read about them here), I was still happy with how my trip to the island turned out. I got to spend some quality beach time, swim with whale sharks, snorkel above corals, dine by the beach and best of all, make new memories with […]

Sumilon Sunrise

Here’s a first on my blog: shooting as the sun is about to rise. I originally wanted to shoot this outfit with the sunset as my backdrop but due to a series of unfortunate events, I wasn’t able to do so. A quick recap of the said events: On my second day in Sumilon Blue […]

One True Love

Heat and sweat are two of my mortal enemies. They make me so uncomfortable and irritable that I just can’t deal. But for some reason, this isn’t the case whenever I’m at the beach. I magically turn into this lover of sunshine, welcoming the heat with open arms. You won’t find me hiding under a […]

Ruffle It Up

But like everything else in fashion, there is hope. You just have to find the right combination. Going for good old black and white is a […]

Meeting Masbate

I didn’t think I’d ever find myself in Masbate. Not because I think any less of it but because I haven’t really heard much about it. When we talk about the Philippines and its famous cities, the list is always topped by Palawan, Cebu, Boracay, Davao and so on and so forth. Masbate, however, not […]

Amor Amorita

This is why there’s never a day I’m not thankful to live in the Philippines. Yes, the traffic does drive me crazy every now and then. The political landscape and our economy aren’t ideal neither. BUT there’s no denying our country’s beauty. We have the most breathtaking beaches that are quite easy to get to. […]

Castaway

If I were in Tom Hank’s movie Castaway, this is how I envision myself. Alone in an unknown island, unsure of how long I’ll survive but still fabulously chic in my coincidentally ready-for-the-beach dress with unintentional BUT strategic slits here and there. LOL. But seriously, despite looking like this dress can pass off as wardrobe […]

Appreciating Art in Vietnam

Going into Ho Chi Minh’s Fine Arts Museum felt like I was sneaking into someone’s mansion during the olden times. As it turns out, it was actually originally a mansion before it was turned into a museum. Mr. Hoa, the wealthiest man of Saigon during the 1920s, owned this yellow and white grand colonial-era mansion. […]
