Luxury Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Christmas is just around the corner! With only 14 days to go, I have almost ticked off everything in my annual Christmas gift list. I make list early in the year and I have a “basic” gift for everyone and just add things I know the person would appreciate until gift giving time. BUT.. If you have not yet completed your holiday gift shopping yet, I have an idea and it’s a luxurious one! Continue reading “Luxury Holiday Gift Guide 2016”

They Painted the Melakan Town Square Red

dsc_7819I didn’t know how to start the first blog post on Melaka. Can I just say I fell in love with the little city? There are many reasons why I thought Melaka was a great place to visit and it started with the minute our bus entered the Malaysian peninsula. Do you still recall the country’s tourism advertisement? The “Malaysia, Truly Asia” one? That was the first thing I said when we left Causeway Link. As soon as the bus entered Malaysia, it felt like home. And, it should be. After all, we Filipinos are of the Malay race. Continue reading “They Painted the Melakan Town Square Red”

July 2016 #OOTDS

Let’s a take a break from the travel posts (but I would still blog some more travel-related posts next week because I have some backlog stories to share), and talk about outfits! Haha.. I was (and still am) seriously considering converting this blog into a travel blog because travel-related posts seem to be the more popular posts. But I just can’t resist the temptation of posting outfit photos because outfit photos were the core and the backbone of this blog since its creation. I will resolve to publish only one #ootd post per month because, the truth is, I also don’t go out often. Continue reading “July 2016 #OOTDS”

Instagram Crushes

Happy Monday!

I’m a huge Instagram fan (just like the million others out there). I browse my feeds all the time. Recently, I’ve been crushing on minimal lay-outs and photographs, including outfits (maybe because my life needs a little order and neatness?). I’ll share with you my top 5 Instagram accounts. They make me want to sleep and wake up in a Muji store. (: I especially love the #ootd accounts. I cannot understand their captions, but I love all of their outfits!

Subtle Marimar

I was one of the millions of Filipinos enthralled by Thalia. I loved her hair, her perfect teeth, her eyes, the way her hands move when she speaks.. I was amused when there were rumors saying she had ribs removed to have such a tiny waist. I loved her hair, her hair!! But most of all, I loved her off-shoulder outfits. I was in high school when Rosalinda aired and I thought I would be like her when I grow up — funny, confident, and beautiful. I always dreamt of her off-shoulder outfits.
