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

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

MY BEACH HIATUS

FUEGO_1Two days after Christmas, my family and I decided to join our family friends (whom we pretty much consider as family) at the beach. We were there for five days — five days that surely helped me recover from all the hustle and bustle here in Manila. I arrived on the night of the 27th so all I got to do was grab a beer then call it a night but on the second day that’s when I got all beach ready!

I decided to get that much-needed tan for a bit. That’s the view from my friends beach house at Fuego It was a good way to listen to songs which I haven’t listened to in a while! Beeteedubs, all photos here were taken with my iPhone! Gosh, technology nowadays. It never fails to amaze me! Thing is, I now need to invest in a Lifeproof case. ANYWAY! After that tanning session, my friends and I decided to hit the beach and enjoy the water, sand and company!!

Since many of us were leaving before the New Years Eve festivities, they decided to have a little teaser of what was to come. I surely got me pumped up for NYE!! Although, I went back to Manila instead of staying at the beach but it’s all good, maybe I’ll get to stay next year! After all that we went to the Tali Beach Concert and decided to chill at our friend, Franc’s place.

The next day, surprisingly we all woke up early enough to spend pretty much the entire day out on the sea! From boating, wake boarding, paddle boarding, jet skiing, swimming and all that jazz.

hese are my friends and I! Whenever we’re at the beach, everyone moves in groups. The grown ups, my friends and I, the teens and the babies. Here we are chowing down some burgers and sipping on soda since we were all just way too hungry! HAHA

We moved to Tali right after to see if any of our friends wanted to jump off Tali Cliff, only a number of our friends went but it’s cool cause we all took a dip (and it was FREEEEEEEZING) instead of jumping. It’s so cool cause I got to see a few friends from a far!

When the sun started to set, we went back home and then chilled at the pool. It was so cool since we all pretty much grew up with each other so while chilling we all reminisced about the good old days. Then that was when it hit me that DAMN, we’ve all been friends since pretty much forever! Literally.

On the last day, I just had breakfast and it was back to Manila for me. It was amazing while it lasted! Can’t wait till the next trip!!

ESPRIT TIMEWEAR EVENT

ESPRITA few months back (I know, major backlog. I blame a corrupt CD for this), I was given the chance to walk the runway for Esprit Timewear. It

was a different experience considering not only was I going to model clothes but I was to model a watch as well! I along with Vern and David

were given the chance to be the blogger representatives and we also got to style ourselves for the show, how fun is that?!
