Travelog: Designer Bag Resale Shops in Tokyo

Travelog: Designer Bag Resale Shops in Tokyo

Hello again, dear readers! I am apologizing because I just realized I hadn’t posted anything new for a good week! Shock!! This is also because a lot of things have been happening in real life that the most online time I get would be for instagram!  Anyway I have some good stories to tell you...
Travelog: A Phuket Dream

Travelog: A Phuket Dream

One thing I really dislike about instagram (ok, I don’t dislike it… haha because I’m actually addicted to it) is that it has made so many bloggers lazy (me included!!). It was all about the blog before and now it’s all about the photos on instagram. And being the seriously OC person that I am,...

The Sofitel Manila Staycation Experience

You know, I have been noticing one thing about myself of late– I talk so much more than I write *LOL*. I feel that I have so many things to talk about and yet when I have to pen it down (or rather type it out), I run on near empty. Am I actually becoming...
Staycation at Sofitel Manila

Staycation at Sofitel Manila

I’m currently blogging from the poolside of Manila’s best resort hotel, Sofitel. I have honestly never done staycations in any of the local hotels here in Manila before, but the first one I thought of was Sofitel when the idea of a stay-in vacation came to mind. I grew up in this hotel (formerly known...
Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Yes, I am back in the city that makes everyone feel unproductive enough, Hong Kong! Hahaha, it’s true– every single time that I am in Hong Kong, I feel like I have to rush, rush, rush. Everyone seems to be rushing to go somewhere. It came to a point when even I found myself running...

Travelog Singapore: S.E.A. Aquarium

Singapore is definitely one of the best places to take children, because it’s a very child- friendly city. One of the cities best attractions for children is the S.E.A. Aquarium which happens to be the world’s largest oceanarium! In the past, I’ve been fortunate to have visited several beautiful oceanariums from different parts of the...

Travelog Singapore: Park Royal on Pickering

Singapore Tourism Board has so kindly put me on this beautiful, eco- friendly new hotel on Upper Pickering Road called Park Royal. This is  a very new hotel and apparently just opened this January. I had honestly never heard of it– and was very impressed when I got a glimpse of the hotel. It looked...

Travelog Singapore: First Stop, Violet Oon’s Kitchen

It was an honor for me to have been invited by the Singapore Tourism Board to visit the Lion City. And while it is not my first time to visit this beautiful city, the activities the STB had lined up for me are all things that I have never done or places I have never...

Ciao from Italia!

Ciao from Milano! In one more day, the Spring Summer 2014 shows will begin. Yesterday after settling into my apartment for the week, I went with good friends around a few cities within hours from Milan. Call it a short R&R before the hectic fashion week where we won’t be getting any more than 4...

Travelog: The Orchard, Beijing

Located in Shunyi (on Hegezhuang Village, Cuigezehuang Township) just on the outskirts of the cosmopolitan part of Beijing, The Orchard is something of a revelation– at least to me. I’ve had an entirely different perception of Beijing as a city and was not under the impression that a gem of an apple orchard (which reminded...

Beijing: Jay Ahr at Work

In Beijing, I not only got to see some beautiful sights (which I shall write about in the upcoming days), but I was also given the privilege to visit designer Jonathan Riss’ atelier– where all his embroidery magic happens. Jonathan’s work not only entailed fashion but also works of art revolving around animal armour– embroidered...

Beijing and the Opposite House

Four and a half hours of sleeping soundly on the plane got me off to a good start here in Beijing. Hats off to my dear friend Jonathan who had taken great lengths to ensure that I was not going to “drown” in the enormity of the Beijing airport. He was absolutely on the mark...
