Roponggi

Good food is always one of my top priorities whenever I travel, so on my last day in Tokyo, I made sure to add another restaurant in my growing list of Japan “musts”. The restaurant is called Mercer Brunch, located at Roponggi. It’s a good thing that Tricia and I are both foodies so even if Roponggi […]

Stop And Shop

There’s always time for shopping, right? After taking in the sights of Tokyo, I couldn’t miss dropping by Harajuku street for a quick fashion fix. It was less chilly that day so I was able to wear lighter clothes. I whipped out my florals and set aside my plaids to match the lovely spring weather. You […]

Shibuya Lights

Hello there, scramble crossing, we meet again. If New York has its iconic Times Square, Tokyo has Shibuya’s scramble crossing. No Tokyo photo diary would ever be complete without it. So even though this isn’t my first time, I still had to take a photo of it. But this time, I took it up a […]

Travel Diary: Sakura

Although this wasn’t my first time in Tokyo, I’ve never visited the city at the right time to actually catch its famous sakura or cherry blossoms. This time around, I was determined to see one. (Just one, Lord. Even if it’s just one.) And just one it is! I’m so thankful to our #CoolJapan #100Tokyo […]

Travel Diary: Asakusa + Tokyo Runway

If Europe has its cathedrals, Asia has its temples. This is why a trip to Tokyo wouldn’t be complete without visiting at least one of its famous shrines. During my trip to Tokyo last year, I visited Meiji Shrine. This year, we decided to go to Sensō-ji, a popular Buddhist temple located at Asakusa. Comparing […]

Travel Diary: Sushi, Kimonos and Nihonbashi

Here we go! 40+ photos of my first snaps in Tokyo. I tried my best to lessen them but I just couldn’t resist not posting them here. I’m such a photo-hoarder, I know. In my defense, I merely want you to experience Tokyo the way I did. And there’s no better way than to show […]

Cool Japan

As many of you may already know, I just recently visited Tokyo upon the invitation of Google Japan and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). I, along with Laureen and Tricia, were the Philippine representatives or ambassadors of METI’s special project called Cool Japan. This project is a government-funded initiative that aims to […]

Travel With Purpose

The main reason why I visited Boracay last February was actually for TOMS One For One campaign. If you’re not familiar with this, this basically means that for every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, TOMS donates a pair of shoes to the less fortunate. Same goes for TOMS eyewear. For every TOMS eyewear you […]

Golden Glow

How fitting is it that I’m typing this beach post taken at Boracay last month from my hotel room in Boracay now? Yes I’m back in the island again. I used to think I wasn’t a beach baby but it seems like I am. I can’t remember how many times I’ve visited this island already. […]

Shopping In Madrid

Whenever I travel, there are 3 important things I have to do research on. Tourist spots, shopping and dining. These are musts and either of them can not be skipped. Some people prefer one over the other. I love them all equally. I believe all of them are necessary to have a complete experience. So […]
