San Remegio

 

The municipality of San Remegio is located in northern Cebu. After we stayed at Bunzie’s Cove for two days, we proceeded to Bogo and then to San Remegio to stay at another beach resort. The weather was gloomy by the time we arrived, but I was keen to exploring the town (or at least the areas near where the beach resort was located) because I spotted a sign of an archeological site.

Brown Vintage One-Piece Swimsuit

 

When I was younger, I bought swimwear that were trendy — skimpy, stringy and cut to leave only a little to the imagination. I wasn’t comfortable and I was in love with vintage already, so I now wear vintage swimsuits, which cover more skin (but are not necessarily less sexy) and are made of more durable materials than mass-produced or poorly-made swimswuits. Glamoursurf.com has an extensive inventory of vintage swimwear and lingerie. The online store dates their vintage and includes substantial information and photos of their items. If you are interested in vintage swimwear and lingerie, the online store is a good resource guide.

I don’t own a lot of bathing suits, not being a beach baby. But I own a few that I love. One of them is the one I’m wearing above. (Okay, you can skip this post or close your eyes). 😛

To care for swimsuits (any kind, vintage or not), hand wash them. Some modern swimwear can withstand machine washing but I suggest you hand wash them. Use mild soap (but I don’t use detergent) and hang them well. I read somewhere that swimwear is better air dried than sun dried, so I do that. I guess, when you dry the swimwear directly under the sun, it becomes brittle.

I Slept at Capitancillo

 

There are people who’d want to escape to a small island, far from everything and everyone. There are people who cherish soaking under the sun, and bathing and swimming all day. I am not one of those people. While I occasionally want to escape, the thought of being alone in an island scares me. When we went to Capitancillo, an islet and a light house off the city of Bogo in northern Cebu, I thought the line “No man is an island” is really true. Continue reading “I Slept at Capitancillo”

Because I can’t get enough of the interiors and decor at Bunzie’s Cove, here are some more photos of the place — in reds, yellows, and oranges. Continue reading “Wild Colors & Prints at Bunzie’s Cove”

Neutrals at Bunzie’s Cove

 

While I enjoy looking at explosion of colors and prints, I don’t want to live in so many of them, and prefer to see neutrals at home. Here are some neutrals at Bunzie’s Cove that I think will look good in my apartment. Continue reading “Neutrals at Bunzie’s Cove”
