PHOTO DIARY: SINGAPORE NIGHT AND DAY 2

SINGNIGHTDuring my first (and last for the trip) night at Singapore, we decided to have dinner where the locals (as well as a bunch of foreigners) would frequent. With that said, my family and I turned to the tips given to us by our friend on the plane. This place is apparently a must-visit-food-spot when you’re at Singapore and I’m happy my family and I got to go!!

This place had a variety of stalls to choose from! From Singaporean dishes to Filipino cuisine, how cool is that?

As a testament to its long legacy and reputation, Wee Nam Kee is definitely a must-try restaurant when you visit Singapore!! People were practically swarming over the stall just to get a plate of their famous roasted and steamed chicken rice.

Before my trip, I made it a point to ask my boyfriend about what food I should try while I was there and he told me to make sure to have some Chicken Rice. I’ve tried it before but then this became one of my ultimate favorite dishes after the trip, be sure to have some when you visit!

Many of my readers commented on my Instagram photo telling me to have some Chili Crab, well, I did and it was delicious! From that meal, I can not say that I am a fan of Singaporean food.

After dinner we went to Marina Bay Sands to catch the water and light now. SPECTACULAR. I didn’t want to blink the entire show cause I was scared I’d miss out on something, hahahaha!!

I wish we had shows and stuff like these in Manila. *sigh*

We decided to head back to the Merlion to grab a cup of coffee before heading back to the hotel. The place looks so nice at night, and the breeze was just right.

These are photos from our last few hours in Singapore. I was so sad I had to leave, my stay was way too short. Which only means, I’m going to make sure to go back real soon!

After a quick walk around Raffles Hotel we hopped on a cab and headed to the airport. Pauline and I wanted to buy these but we had no space in our bags anymore. Booo. These were my favorite chocolates growing. After a three hour and ten minute flight, we were back in Manila. Back to reality for me. Till my next travel post, hope you liked this one! x

WHAT’S IN MY MAKEUP KIT?

MAKEUP_1I’ve been asked by many of you, my readers about what makeup I bring around with me on a daily basis. Well, allow me to shed some light on that matter and talk to you all about what is inside my daily makeup kit. For the record, I don’t bring all my make up with me so these are what I stuff inside this cute Harajuku Lovers pouch of mine!

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS EVENT

MACNot many of you know this but growing up, I was such a comic book fan. From Marve comics all the way to Archie comics. SO! When I found out
that Mac was creating a line featuring Archie and his girls, my face just lit up! I remember collecting and reading the Archie comic series
and loving every bit of it so I made sure I bought a little something from the collaboration they now currently have with Mac.

THE (AMERICAN) EAGLE HAS LANDED

AE1Last March 1, I made sure to wake up a tad bit earlier than expected so that I could drop by the American Eagle store at Bonifacio High
Street for the private preview. I remember when I was about thirteen or so I was such a massive fan of the brand, making sure to hoard pieces in the States each time I got the chance. Luckily, it finally opened in Manila and I couldn’t be any happier!! They sell pieces that truly
fit my style as well as my lifestyle. They couldn’t be any more accurate for calling themselves America’s Favorite Denim Brand cause their jeans fit perfectly and look gorgeous when worn!

I swear, while I was walking around their shop, I felt like I was inside someones Tumblr blog. The shop totally gave off that vibe!

Hoodies! These were some of my favorite pieces along with their denims, dresses and accessories! The shop was a mix of neutral tones, hues of blue and splashes or neon here and there. It’s such a fun shop to be in, believe me!
I think this was probably my favorite side of the entire shop. From the items on this side to the colour! It’s just so eye-catching!

I think when David, Vern (not in the photo cause she wasn’t there yet) and I got dressed one thing surely stuck in our head.. DENIM! We all wore a little something with denim being one of the mail pieces of our outfit that morning. David and I chose chambrays (as well as matching frames and black bottoms) while Vern went for skinnies and cute heels! Great minds think I alike! Haha!

There are two floors in American Eagle, the first is for the ladies and the second is for the lads. I should say, the mens line is just as good as the womens! I would seriously love to buy some of their sweaters as well as backpacks.

Ladies, now you know.. There’s a new shop for you girls to buy some gifts not only for your beau but for your dad, brothers, cousins and sons as well!

Oh! Another plus? They sell cute knickers there! From panties, to bras, sleepwear and the like. Believe me, they’re so comfortable!!

As I was leaving the shop, I caught a glimpse of the stage set up for the event that was to happen that evening. It looked massive and I heard that they had to close down the road for three days prior to the event just so they could set up! You’ll see how the amazing stage looks like after when I post the event photos. It was definitely all worth the hard work!

I’ll be sure to drop by American Eagle again and I hope you all make time to swing by as well. I hope to see some of you there! Cheers! x

L’ORÉAL STEAM POD TREATMENT

STEAM_10Earlier this week, I was given the opportunity to be one of the first in the Philippines to try L’Oréals newest addition to their long list of hair treatments.. The Steam Pod! It uses their Keratin treatment alongside a flat iron which releases steam when used. It leaves your hair most and obviously — far from dry! While watching the presentation, I knew that I was going to enjoy this!

I BIT INTO THE BETTER NETWORK

SmartFirst and foremost.. HAPPY NEW YEAR and CHEERS to my first post for 2013! I do apologize for the short hiatus for the past few days — I was

at the beach and decided to take it easy and relax for a number of days. Well, here’s to a new year filled with new adventures and a number

of blog posts!Last December 13, Smart decided to throw a massive party in order to welcome the arrival of the much awaited iPhone 5. The

turnout was AMAZING that night! The amount of people at the Resorts World Atrium, Opus and Republiq that night was just.. WOW! It left me

speechless! CONGRATULATIONS to Smart for a successful event! I am so happy I bit into the better network!

THE CLIQUE ISSUE: YOUNG STAR FEATURE

YSWhenever Young Star asks to feature me, it’s something I never think twice about. It’s always a definite YES! So, with that said — I didn’t let this opportunity pass. I only knew a little about the shoot, like not exactly the whole idea of what the feature was going to be (which got me curious yet excited at the same time) except that we had to dress up in our Sunday Barbecue Best!

TWO STEPS TWICE

STEPSLast Saturday, I along with a bunch of friends were part of a shoot. I won’t give anything away cause I’d like for you all to be surprised

when it comes out — Don’t worry! I’ll tweet it once it’s been published (which is probably Friday this week). Anyway, the theme? Sunday

Barbecue. With that said, this is what I’d probably wear to a barbecue, haha! What do you think?
