Travel Diary: Namhansanseong Fortress

Our second day in South Korea with AirAsia and Korea Tourism Office started with a visit to another fortress called Namhansanseong, which literally means “South Han Mountain Fortress”. It’s located in the province of Gyeonggi-do but in a different city called Gwangju-si. This soon-to-be UNESCO World Heritage site is believed to have been built during King Onjo’s […]

Travel Diary: Gyeonggi-Do, Korea

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, Gyeonggi-do is a fascinating place. It’s where beauty, fun and old town charm are all rolled into one. You can even say it’s where the past, present and future come together (a statement that, in my opinion, is applicable to most of South Korea). I already showed you “the past” through […]

Travel Diary: Hwaseong Fortress

When you say South Korea, Seoul is usually the first city that comes to mind. In fact to a lot of tourists, it’s the ONLY city that comes to mind. But just like any other country, South Korea has a lot of hidden gems aside from its capital that are worth discovering. One of which […]

The Start Of My Korean Adventure

I’ve got my bags and passport with me again which means I’m off to another destination! Woohoo! So where did “Camille Tries To Blog” fly to this time? (I mean that literally now because I’ve got “Camille Tries To Blog” actually customized on my phone by Slickwraps! Cool, right? They even placed my trademark ribbon […]

Seaside

Last month, I flew to Cebu for the Cebu In The Bag event arranged by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce And Industry. Since the 3-day event was held in Mactan, I made sure to make the most out of the seaside–even if it’s just taking the sea breeze in, walking on the sand and dipping […]

Welcome To The Dark Side

I’ve officially embraced the dark side—of my hair, I mean. I’ve been trying so hard to darken my then blonde hair that in a span of a month, I dyed it thrice! I’m sure you didn’t notice the change because my hair is just so stubborn. For some weird reason, light colors stick so well on […]

Skinnovation

It’s so hard being a girl. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being one but it can get pretty tiring. Just our personal care and grooming alone take FOREVER. How can they not? We need to wash this, apply that, comb this, wax that and so on and so forth. For a busy girl like me, it’s impossible not […]

My Hong Kong Discovery

You’ve already seen a sneak peek of Intercontinental Hong Kong’s famed presidential suite, but believe me when I say the balcony is not even half of what makes it so awesome. Although I was already more than happy with the harbour view room I was given, I was still curious to see how the other side lives. […]

Intercontinental

Just look at this view, taken all the way up from Intercontinental Hong Kong’s presidential suite. Imagine waking up to this every single day. Wow. For a brief moment there, I got to take this all in and pretend I was actually living here. I even dressed the part–choosing to wear something colorful to break the blues and […]

Shine Through

For my second day in Hong Kong, I thought I’d wear something a little bit dressier than my pink outfit that I wore here. Day 1 was already all about simplicity and minimalism so day 2 needed a bit more dazzle. And when I want to dazzle, I don’t skimp on the beads and sequins–no matter […]
