Travel Diary: Experiencing Korea’s Old And New

After our trip to Namhansanseong Fortress, our guide took us for a short walk around the neighborhood. She said we had a special lunch set up just a few miles away. It was a beautiful neighborhood full of trees and traditional-looking houses so I didn’t really mind the walk. It felt like I was in a K-drama […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Be My Baby

I always feel like a kid again whenever I’m wearing matching sets like this. Not that I think they look childish (more like adorable), but I remember my mom used to always dress me up in matchy-matchy clothes back in the day. Yes, she’s one of “those” moms who like to dress their kids up […]

Peach Perfect

It’s always a happy day in the world of shopping when I discover new brands. And since I’m a sharer, I’ll let you in on my online finds. You’re welcome. You’ve already seen one of them in my previous post. It’s the Korean shoe brand, Tandy. As you can tell from the pair of wedge sneakers […]
