Photo Diary: Siama Hotel, Sorsogon

It was my first time in Sorsogon for a dear friend’s wedding and I wish I took more photos of the beautiful hotel we stayed in. I’ve seen photos of Siama Hotel on Instagram but seeing it in person sure was something else. We only stayed for two days (arrived on the day of the wedding and left the morning after)…

Currently / February 2018

Formerly a weekly themed post I adapted from That’s Chic, this is a list of my favorite things for the month.   Music Monday I just finished the series Everything Sucks on Netflix over the weekend and I loved it. I especially enjoyed the soundtrack which transported me back to my own high school years. My high school experience was anything…

Photo Diary: Bali, Indonesia

It was my first time in Bali over the weekend and I fell in love with the place. All the gorgeous interiors and the yummy food makes me want to plan another trip back. I was there because my friend P was celebrating her birthday and asked me and L to join her. What was originally supposed to be a trip…

What’s Inside My Tiny Notebooks?

I try to keep a small notebook with me whenever I’m traveling. I also bring along a tiny water brush, a small collection of Micron pens, and my watercolor palette of choice (usually a portable Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colours Sketchers’ Pocket Box that I got from one of Alessa‘s workshops). I also love taking photos (either with my…

Photo Diary: Singapore

Late last year, I celebrated my 33rd birthday in Singapore visiting one of my favorite people and seeing Taylor Swift on her 1989 World Tour. It wasn’t my first time but there were still tons of places on my list back then that I didn’t get to see. This time around, we tried to squeeze in as many things we…

Photo Diary: Hong Kong

Spent Valentine’s Weekend with two of my girls in Hong Kong. We had absolutely no itinerary and just kind of figured out our day the night before. Worked out well, we had happy tummies (and feet, hehe) and got to treat ourselves a bit. Can’t wait for the next one! I hated the cold weather when we were there (thank…

Photo Diary: Bahay Marikit (San Juan, Batangas)

Allow me one #throwbackthursday photo collage before I dive into a flashback trip to San Juan, Batangas. I don’t remember exactly when but I suppose our choice of swimsuits might be an indication that the last time I was in Bahay Marikit was a very long time ago. So when Mikko told me she was heading to Batangas with some…

Photo Diary: Bangkok, Thailand

While I was  in Macau, there was a seat sale for domestic and international flights. My friends decided to book a trip in September to Bangkok and without even thinking twice (I wasn’t even sure if I had the budget for it, haha), I told them to book me a ticket too. Fast forward to two months later, I flew…

Photo Diary: Macau and Hong Kong

It was my first time in Macau. It was raining when we walked to St. Paul’s Ruins. There were too many people taking pictures so I was content with just having a piece of warm egg tart, trying not to get drenched. The sun decided to come out when we spent a day in Hong Kong. We spent a lot…
