Travel Diary: Nijo Castle

The Nijo-jo or Nijo Castle is one of the few remaining castles in Japan that showcases traditional palace architecture of Japan’s feudal era. It’s definitely not as in-your-face flamboyant as European castles and possesses a more subtle kind of grandeur, but nevertheless, still worth a visit. The biggest difference I noticed between the two is […]

Travel Buddies

I’m finally heading back to Manila tonight! Woohoo! Even if my travel-filled month is already coming to an end, I still can’t believe I was able to fit all my things in my luggages. I guess it all boils down to bringing only the essential clothes, accessories, and shoes. And when I say essentials, I […]

The Right Pair

The right pair of jeans can do wonders for your body. And if they’re made with topnotch quality, then all the more. You don’t need to wear anything else to wow. A loose blouse, a plain tank or a basic shirt will do because (allow me to borrow from Pitch Perfect) lesbianest, the way those […]

Understated

Denim is probably the most versatile fabric ever invented. Young or old, tall or short, fair or dark-skinned, skinny or chubby–denim suits everybody. In fact, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t own a piece of denim clothing. So what do you do to make an already well-loved fabric even better? Make it 100% organic. In […]

Take It To The Streets

When you scroll down the very end of this post, you’ll see the photo of me risking my life just a little. I don’t know what got into me but I just thought, “hey, wouldn’t if be cool to get in the middle of this busy street and pose there?” At first, it seemed like something […]

Cold Shoulder

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again–ladies, you don’t need to show a lot of skin to look and feel sexy. Sometimes, you just got to wear the right clothes that hug you at the right places. And then, maybe show a little bit of that shoulder. I don’t know why but I find […]

Barber Shop

I’ve always loved this particular barber shop’s look located at Hong Kong’s Central district. It’s got that retro quirky vibe that’s bound to get a lot of love and snaps. The vintage television sets, the traditional barber shop sign, the vibrant color of red–totally Instagrammable. Funny how we’ve coined new terms that a few years ago, no […]

Tarlac City

Ashamed as I am to admit this, I haven’t really explored much of my own country. Aside from the usual beaches and resorts, I’ve failed to truly capture the beauty of the Philippines. There are no excuses for this–which is why before 2014 ended, I promised myself that I’d start traveling around the Philippines more. […]
