On All Soul’s Day, I dragged my boyfriend to an impromtu trip to my home island, Siquijor. It was a Saturday and we were expecting many people traveling but we got a not so pleasant surprise, not many were traveling that day, which made our travel time longer than usual because we had to wait for other passengers before boats would travel. We took the “land trip” route, which was supposed to be faster and cheaper than a boat trip or a fast craft trip.
Our road trip to the north of Cebu capped with a rainy and windy day at San Remegio. We were at Lingay Beach but the sea was rough and the wind made it dangerous for us to trek the water — not that I was very excited to do that also. It was a gloomy day but being in a different place and with different people gave me a different kind of energy. The beach resort is nothing extraordinary but I loved their arc of green vines, which I think made for a perfect backdrop for this vintage floral top I thrifted from Moalboal.
We had a team Christmas party at the beach. I’m not a beachbum, and I have to admit that when the sand is not the color of salt/sugar/flour, I have hesitations. I am spoiled by our island’s white sand beaches, which we can access for free. But that Christmas party was one of the best beach parties I attended, especially when we played slipper game! I know this is a belated post, but better late than never. 😛 Continue reading “OUTFIT | Summer in December”
This was purely a coincidence. I did not realize I was wearing the colors of 2Go — white and pink — when I posed in front of their office. Continue reading “2Go Outfit”
I love a good denim jacket. For how many years, I only had one, this one Levi’s denim jacket, and I did not think of getting another one because what’s the use of another one. I only need one classic denim jacket. But I saw this pair I’m wearing above, cropped, with some studs at the collar, is very soft, fits me to a T, and costs P35 (actually only P33.33 because it was 3 for P100). I love it so much that I’m wearing it again (after this). Continue reading “OUTFIT | Jacket Rewind”
I was feeling kinda cold the past days. In fact, on Friday, I slept at 4 in the afternoon and I was covered chin to toe with a blanket. The following day, I was deciding what to wear, and I thought I should use the pair of jeans more often so it would get dirtier and I’d have to take to the laundry shop. And I thought why not wear denim all over? I thought it was a cool idea until we took these pictures and I said I look like a boy, and my boyfriend said “cge lang kung baduy. . . Kung panahon pa na ni Robin Padilla, uso bitaw na.”(!) Haha. This is indeed a baduy outfit, but what the heck, it’s comfortable and it’s the weekend, it’s cold, and it’s my life, it’s now or never.

I’m wearing a vintage silk top I bought from one Sunday of thrifting adventure with my bestfriend and her sister. The plan to wear this kept getting postponed until one Sunday when my boyfriend and I decided to use the Fully-booked gift certificates we received from our lawyer couple friend. Continue reading “Vintage Silk Top & Jeans”
One rainy Saturday (it’s now always raining here), we had a maternity shoot with our lawyer friends, Chu-chu and Jerome at the Quest Hotel. While Chu-Chu was being prepped, my boyfriend and I scouted the area for possible good lighting. We got lost because we thought the swimming pool was at the topmost. Continue reading “OUTFIT | Cream, Denim & Quest”
My boyfriend and I spent one Sunday having another double date. We (actually, only my boyfriend) took maternity shots of our friend, Nestie and Jay-R, and had lots of fun even with the heavy rain. Our first (but not our last) maternity shoot. 😛 I love having photoshoots with friends because I can play a dream role, and they allow me to play a dream role, and we all have fun while being productive.

While riding the jeepney to Ayala, and secretly glancing at the two Korean girls taking iPhone photos of the surroundings, I began to think of why I love white vintage tops that you can see being popularly worn by grandmothers. I recall my childhood as full of books and reading. I read children’s books with female heroines like The Little Women, The House in the Prairie series, Little Princess, Secret Garden, and Anne of Avonlea. I have limited imagination and would only imagine my favorite characters wearing white top and some kind of a skirt. So, I love white granny tops, and I have collected several of them, stored separately from my other clothes. Continue reading “OUTFIT | The Granny Blouse”
