I am sure I have already mentioned before how the sun is not my favorite thing in the world. Haha. Well for one, I get dark within 5 minutes of sun exposure. I also sweat like a deer on spotlight. Plus, it could really drain you and make you look spent. It's so inconvenient especially when I'm running around the metro. Or outside the metro for work. Sometimes. Anyway, I am so glad I have found my saving grace! You would definitely say YES to S when you find out more about it. Here's how the unveiling went, starting with some outfit shots!:)
Top local retail brand Plains & Prints recently held a huge event in celebration of their 20th anniversary at Glorietta. Anne Curtis walked the runway wearing pieces from their new photo-fashion collection featuring the works of renowned photographers Wig Tysman and Mark Nicdao. I am so in love with this collection!!! I don't have photos from the event but here are photos from the lookbook!
Two weeks ago, we were invited by Anchor Land Holdings to try and experience the "Bay Area" lifestyle through a super fun staycation at one of their prime properties, SoleMare Parksuites! :) I shall make this as simple and fun as possible, hoping that by the end of my post, you'd actually consider getting a unit of your own. Haha. Stories through photos!
Singapore will always be one of my favorite countries to visit. I even considered moving there (multiple times until now) and maybe work and just stay there for years. I've fallen in love with SG the first time I step foot in it. I still fall in love with it every time. :) So, what makes Singapore so special and why do I love this place so much? Well, let me count the ways...
1. CHANGI AIRPORT
I could live in Changi airport. It's so big, squeaky clean, it's cozy, they have free internet, fun activities for kids and adult (READ HERE), super organized, nice bathrooms, walkalators, shopping! Just how an airport should be. ;)
Chinatown is my favorite place in SG because I just love the energy and vibe this place radiates. Chinatown also offers great food and the best souvenir shopping experience! This is also where the Buddha Tooth and Relic temple is located. :)
3. TRAINS or SMRT
They have a super organized and efficient train system! It's also nice that their MRT stations are air-conditioned. It's a nice relief from Singapore's humid and hot weather and makes commuting fun. Almost everything in SG are connected by MRT. :)
May it be hawkers (food court) or street food markets, they serve the best food!!! The SG menu is a fusion of different Asian flavors and cuisine. I could live in SG if only for the food. Haha. Definitely a foodie's paradise! Don't forget to drop by Lau Pa Sat to taste the best satays!
They have everything for everyone! There's the famous Orchard road where all the huge malls are. There are also known outlet malls around like Anchorpoint where you could buy super discounted items from Giordano, Typo, Billabong, Cotton On, etc. And there's my favorite BUGIS! Bugis has this Greenhills vibe and you could buy clothes for just P150-300.
If you have a sweet tooth, you would go cray-cray over their chocolate stores! The one above is in Lucky Plaza. You could also shop in Mufasa Mall, Little India. I love how I could just buy Nutella & GO! snack from drugstores for just P60-80. Haha.
Like I said, they have a very nice transport system. Even their buses are well organized. Remember to prepare exact change!
Singapore may be hot or humid but the people here dress up nicely and are at the forefront of fashion. They have access to different brands and shops, so they have everything here!
Singapore is one of the safest and cleanest countries in the world. You could walk outside without looking over your shoulder every 5 seconds or without feeling paranoid. Everything is also "walkable" with their interconnected walkways and malls.
(Universal Studios, Madame Tussauds, Merlion, Sentosa, etc)
Don't miss these fun places when you tour the city!
..and iced milo for just $1.50 hehe
You could walk around and just be mesmerized by different art works you would see along the way. The photos above were taken at Haji Lane!:)
They have such an efficient traffic system too. You would not die here crossing the street. Haha. Cars actually stop when pedestrians are about to cross. Super nice. :)

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY! Don't miss it! See you in Singapore!:)
I remember watching the Chris Brown x Rihanna concert years ago and it was so much fun! They were still an item that time (walang forever) and before, you know, shit hits the fan. Tsk. Well, to be honest, I like Chris Brown as an artist and I've always loved singing and dancing to his songs. Lakas maka LSS din eh. I also think he has one of the best R&B voices and one of the few who could bust out some wicked dance moves. Breezy sa lahat eh! Was supposed to watch his NYE's Countdown performance last year but it got cancelled at the very, very last minute. So, of course I had to go when AJ of KitKat invited me to have a break at his tuloy-na-tuloy-na-sure-na-no-erase concert last July 21 at MOA Arena. It finally happened!!! Here are photos!:)
Hope you all got your lipstick fix last July 29, also known as International Lipstick Day! There were tons of brands that were on super sale and I'm so happy that I didn't totally miss the fun! I was able to get my hands on Happy Skin's Preview set c/o Trice and I love, love, love it. Anyway, here's what happened during SM Beauty's Lipstick Fest launch last July 22, as well as an exciting announcement! :)
Hello, hellooo! I know I haven't been posting outfit posts lately, so here's one to close my blogging streak today. But before that, chika minute muna! How are you guys? I'm currently busy preparing for my 20-day birthday trip this August. Going Asian country hopping with Nico and doing so with a limited budget. Hope we survive and not end up begging for food. Haha. I shall document our trip and share all of our fun (and anguish) with you. I am almost done booking all our accommodations via AGODA. I could spend hours just browsing the site! It's my virtual happy place. Got some pretty great deals which I will share with you in a separate post. Anyway, here are some outfit photos from last month!
