Ho Chi Minh

My short trip to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam was the most relaxed trip I’ve ever had last year. I had no itinerary planned so I had no idea what to expect. Good thing I had a friend who was familiar with the city to show me around. It was still a pretty chill schedule though. […]

Back At Jardin Du Luxembourg

As tempting as it is to wear a fancy dress and shoot all dramatically at the grand Jardin Du Luxembourg, it’s not exactly the most practical thing to wear when you’ve got a full day of “touring your sister around Paris” planned. Yes, I’m still at it–still playing tour guide to my sister because it’s […]

Hairy Situation

Deciding where to shoot my outfit photos in Park Güell is no easy task. As you’ve seen in my previous post about this place, it is just full of editorial-worthy spots! This area I chose to shoot in is called the Hypostyle Room or the Sala Hipóstila, a covered area with 86 striated columns. I thought […]

Best Face Forward

I know I should be starting my long-promised travel series from Paris and Barcelona already, but due to my busy schedule lately, I can’t seem to find the time to sit down and sift through the gazillion photos I took. YET AGAIN. All this sounds too familiar, doesn’t it? I never seem to learn! I […]

Flannel Fan

Maybe it’s the 90s kid in me but I’ve always like flannel. Whether it’s on trend or not, there wasn’t a time in my life that I didn’t have flannel in my closet. This must’ve been the reason why it came so natural for me to style Uniqlo’s flannel shirts during the recently concluded Uniqlo […]

My Travel Companion

Don’t you worry though, I still have plenty of travel diaries lined up for you–from Barcelona, Paris, Vietnam, Bohol, Masbate and… Singapore (yes, again). As I’ve said countless times before, travel is one of my greatest passions and I’m incredibly fortunate […]

Nothing But Great Taste

My mom has trained all of us siblings to love milk. As kids, we drank milk 3 times a day, together with our meals. Out of the three of us though, she was the most successful with me. I wasn’t a fan of fresh milk then so she gave me chocolate milk instead and boy, […]

Travel Diary: Arashiyama

At the western outskirts of Kyoto lies another touristy district called Arashiyama. It takes about 30 minutes to get here by train but it’s totally worth the long transit (when I say long, I mean by Japanese standards) especially during cherry blossom and fall seasons. A short walk to Arashiyama’s central landmark–the Togetsukyo Bridge, will […]

Travel Diary: Fushimi Inari Taisha

Fushimi Inari Taisha or Shrine is the most important shrine dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Several locals visit Fushimi Inari to pray for prosperity for their businesses. Tourist, however, visit this shrine for its visual appeal. Personally, I think it’s one of Kyoto’s most beautiful sights. It’s hard not to be when […]

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 […]
