Family Vacation in Boracay (Part 4)

Last part of the my photoblog series of our family vacation in Boracay.

Willy’s Rock

Serene Boracay Sanda

We have really enjoyed this trip in Boracay and our family is looking forward to more trips like this in the future. Maybe not in the next two years as we are expecting another addition to our small family soon. I am looking forward to welcoming my new nephew in the next few days. Just a little trivia, whenever a new member to the family is coming, my brother and sister-in-law always make sure to visit Boracay.

Greenery, All The Time

One last time to enjoy the serene white sands and enjoy the lasting summer vibe from this island.

Black Is My Happy Color

No surprises, once again I am wearing black for our weekend walk/visit in Intramuros, Manila.

Black is a staple color in my closet and what really nice with this color is it never go out of trend. You can easily match it with any color.

Casa Manila

No matter what color you wear, what’s most important is you are comfortable of what you are wearing. We have different definition of comfortable, some define it as cmfy itself and while others might define it of showing who they truly are. You have to find a style that fits you make sure that it represents who you are.

My Happy Color

I stumbled upon Outlines.ln ‘s  Instagram page and instantly fell in love with their aesthetic especially their black canvas bags. I am instantly a fan and will look forward to my next purchase with them. You can check their IG page by clicking HERE.

Photoblog: Baguio (January 2017)

Took me so many months before I was able to post this entry.

Season For Blooming

Early this year, or more appropriately, at the first month of the year, me and my family decided to visit Baguio City. Baguio City was once a place where my mom studied while she was on primary school. Since then, she has never again set foot in Baguio until this trip happened.

Reason I Love Baguio

It was a special trip for the family as it was the first time my mom returned to Baguio after a few decades and we were there to celebrate my birthday.

2nd Time To Visit BenCab Museum

Hello, Flowers!

Outfit # 1: All White

Outfit # 2: Almost All Gray

Outfit # 3: All Black

We did the usual touristy route and visited places swarmed by tourists. We drived around Baguio, enjoyed food (some not so good experience and some are excellent) and took lot of photos.

Painted Blue on Blue

I know I have been a fan of monotone colors like black and gray. I will always be a fan of those color for like forever. I find those colors easy to match with everything. Though from time to time, you crave for something different.

A Happy Kind of Blue


I also noticed that aside from blacks and grays, my sight is somehow attracted to blues. Especially these last few weeks. Maybe I am missing the beach as I only visited one beach destination this year.

Blues Versus Grays and Greens


I’ve worn this ensemble to recent coffee crawl which we visited four coffeeshops in a day. The outfit lets me move comfortably and is made for walking from coffee house to another. Also, with the blues I’ve worn also compliment the neutral color palette of the coffee house we have visited. Stay tuned for my blog entry about our Makati coffee crawl soon.

Black and Casual

As you have known by now, I am big fan of black. Black is among one of the colors that looks great with any colors.

Happiness

Black Wall with Pink Details

Since it has been a long time since I had an outfit post, I decided to go all out black for this outfit post. I’ve decided to go all casual and all black. Used this ensemble for an afternoon catch-up with friends. Also recently, I’ve been very attracted to anything Disney related specifically Mickey Mouse. Good thing that one of my most faverite fast fashion labels, Uniqlo, always have these collaboration with Disney.

Who Is The Sweeter One?

Cutie Look In Black

This is also the first outfit post with darker hair color in like two or three years. I will let do a blogpost about my DIY hair color adventure soon, so please stay tuned!

Summer and Stripes

After so much time, I got the chance to blog again.

Since, this was way long overdue, I was still sporting pink pastel hair and still kinda long. I already moved to kind of dark brown silky shiny hair. There are just those time that you will feel that you need to move on and have a change.

The entire look is still very summer despite that this was taken early March: from stripped top, baggy (ahjumma-kinda look) pants to juicy blushed face.

Waiting for a Summer Breeze



Stripes are staple to my closet and I have tons of them. This stripped shirt is from H&M. Baggy straight pants are trendy nowadays and we even sometimes joke around that it is kind of reminscent of “ahjumma” style. I think I have been watching a lot of K-Drama recently tho. Straight baggy cropped pants are just perfect for summer season as it is relaxed and can easily mixed with almost everything. Lastly, finished the look with a clean beige slip-ons from Cotton On.

PS. Summer is in full bloom here in the tropics. I honestly wish we have spring or autumn over here.

Cebu (Part 1): Peek at the Peak

Finally, I will now be able to start my Cebu series. This is way overdue as our Cebu trip happened last October 2016. Honestly though, it felt as if I was just there last week and I feel nostalgic, happy and bittersweet everytime I look at the photos.

Just, Wow!

Greenery For The Win!

Hanging In There

If This Is Aint Perfection?

First stop: Osmeña Peak. Ok, I know what you are thinking! Does it mean trekking? Can Orange really trek all the way to the top? Actually, I did given that I am a passive type of tourist who prefers lounging at the beach, enjoying boat rides and the same but trekking or mountain climbing is even on Orange’s vocabulary? Yes, I even surprised myself but I think this would be the few or rare vacations that I will do this and let me say that I have not regretted it at all.

Cloud Game is A+

Happy Kid – First Time To Go Up The Mountain

Taking In or Busy With Instagram?

Osmeña Peak is known as the highest point in the island of Cebu. Good thing about climbing the peak is that you do not need to be a pro-mountaineer to enjoy the breathtaking view. All you need to have are friends to talk and joke to on the way up and a lot of water. I think we were fortunate enough that on our way up, the sun is covered by the clouds (and there is fog, even). But I guess we prayed enough and mixed with a little bit of luck that when we reached the peak, the sun let us peek what is there to see at the peak: super nice view.

Peak-A-Boo

Like I said, I have never climbed any mountain and prefer observation deck over anything but Osmeña Peak is on a different level. Have to say that, visiting Osmeña Peak is a must do when you are planning to visit Cebu.

Closer To The Sun

Me and My College Friends Turned Travel Best Friends

😇

PS. The climb (or more appropriately called walk up) only took us 30 to 40 mins but as per the tour guide, it will only take 15-20 minutes. So I guess you do the math of how slow we walked all the way up. So there.

In The Mood For Blue Summer

Summer has been my favorite part of the year as this is the perfect time to enjoy the beach. But here in the Philippines, summer is “almost” an all year long season. You can visit the beach anytime (except when there is a tropical storm or low pressure area) to enjoy the sun and get some tan.

Smile, The Sun is Out

It is innate for those living in tropical countries to choose the summer season over the wet seasons. Honestly though, I am still wishfully thinking that our country has autumn and spring (and forego the winter season).

This outfit post way long overdue as this was taken during our trip in Cebu back in October 2016. I will be posting my travel diaries soon so please watch out.

Looking For Something?

Gorgeous back drop was courtesy of Virgin Island in Sante Fe, Banatayan, Cebu. I highly recommend this island ad a visit when you are in Cebu. Bantayan has a lot to offer.

Sleeveless top is from Factorie. Shorts from H&M.

Mood for Some Blue

I have been wearing a lot of blues recently and is becoming one of my faves after black and gray. The H&M shorts are not actually under the swimwear line but they are so cute that I decided to bring them to the beach.

Black Out

Nowadays, I opt to go for minimalist look compared to when I was younger I have tendency to go for maximalist. I don’t know if this is a sign of maturity (or ageing – whatever you call it. LOL).

Black Is One Of My Faves


When I cleaned my closet before Christmas, all I see is a sea of muted colors of black, whites and grays with sometimes hint of blues and very minimal to none for loud colors. I guess my affinity to muted colors is because of my ever changing hair colors. I promise to blog about my hair color adventures soon, so better stay tuned. Even my to-go-to colors for shoes are gearing toward grays and blacks. I really think that the streamlined Asian aesthetic influenced me to go for this style. I like how simple pieces make up interesting overall look (topped by the my light pink hair).

Hello Black

Long Line Black Top from Mint. Black Sneakers from New Balance.

Ever wonder where this wonderful place is? It is in The Alley At Karrivin in Makati City. The hidden place houses some furniture shops, flower shop, restaurant and very great coffee shop named “Writer’s Block”. I think I’ll also start blogging about my coffee adventures too?
