Travelog: Visiting Lu Focaro in Torre di Palme

Today, I did something I’ve always wanted to do– drive to another region in Italy 🙂 Since I am in Milan a few days before fashion week begins, I decided to go back to one of the most special places I have ever visited, thanks to the Tod’s family (Claudio, Maria Cristina, Simona, Karen, Sabine,...

Travelog: Milano Window Shopping After Hours

Ciao from Milano! Got into the gloomy city around 4p after a long 18 hour travel (layover included). I always feel light- hearted and happy when I’m back here. Been fortunate to live just a few blocks from the Duomo, where all the action happens 🙂 My first dinner in Milan was at Il Salumaio...

Travelog: On Bangkok Food & Designer Clothing

I travel a lot lately– so much more than I used to. If I travel for a job, I am usually left with very little alone time to shop. I take my time and explore the city or town instead of go shopping. I guess this comes with age somehow– that I feel I need...

In between Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, I made a detour to the city of London for my cover shoot of Lifestyle Asia  (LA) Magazine’s April cover. I won’t lie– call me narcissistic but I really was so thrilled and beyond ecstatic at the thought of being a cover girl for a 2nd...

Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

I’ve always been a diehard loyal passenger of Emirates Airline, having had a consistently lousy experience travelling with Etihad to Europe (search my blog for the experience). This trip to Paris though, I am flying Qatar. The flight from Manila left at 5.50pm in the NAIA 1 Terminal. I haven’t set foot in this terminal...

You have no idea how excited everyone was to go Downtown Walnut Creek (haha we all woke up too late for Downtown SF) for some retail therapy after we were hanging out in snowy Lake Tahoe. Boxing Day usually spells bargains so my wallet was getting a bit nervous LOL. First (and only) stop: Neiman...
