When life gets rough, I like to hold on to my dream, 
Of relaxing in the summer sun, just lettin’ off steam.
- Olaf, Frozen

I was browsing photos and videos on the happenings with Coachella and I must say, I’m jealous. People there get to wear sexy summer outfits and enjoy the music while I’m in here stuck with the notorious sunny weather. Gaahh! What I’d sacrifice just to be able to experience the US. Oh well, fingers crossed! ;)

For now let me just share to you what I’d probably wear if i was there enjoying Summer; denim on denim with a sexy twist! I wore a denim vest as a top, put on my 1969 boot leg jeans, add up some flower crown and voila, I’m ready for some groove at Coachella!

How about you guys? What would you wear if you were given the chance to experience a music festival?

Go for Comfort

As much as I love travelling all over the world, one of the things I’m not a fan of is staying at the airport, especially here in the Philippines. If you have been at other airports abroad, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. Which is why every time I travel, I always wear something comfortable. Something easy, breezy and nothing pointy.

It’s important to wear something easy to take off. If you are unfamiliar with airport security, you should know that they usually let you take off your shoes, hat, sunglasses and carry-on bags. I’m not so sure if they do in every airport but atleast you are prepared. I also highly recommend a scarf and sunglasses. You can make your scarf an instant blanket/pillow while your sunnies will help you sleep. As I have said in my previous posts, I have been travelling alot for the past few months so I know what I’m talking about.

So, where to this Summer?

I guess you now know I’m a fan of Suits and Jessica Pearson’s fashion sense. Her classy corporate outfits are to die for! Every time I think about going all out for work, I think about her, Victoria Beckham, Divine Lee and Camille Co. They are all amazing when it comes to classic style.

How about you? Who are your inspirations when you dress up?

HK is Sweeter the Second Time Around Part 2

I’ve been MIA again for the past month. Hihi. I just came from China so expect another travel blogpost soon. :D

Anyways, let’s go back to Hong Kong again. Another great tourist destination there is The Peak. I recommend you ride the tram to and from The Peak for that added tourist-y feel.

You can also visit Madame Tussauds while at The Peak.

We ate lunch at the mall there. If you are a fan of Vietnamese food, try Pho Yummee. They are cheap and I think the food was okay.

For shopaholics like me, visit the Times Square and Soho.

20140116_233344Eyebar on our last night. Perfect scenery!

Travelling with a friend could either MAKE or BREAK your relationship. I am happy to say that our stay in HK with my best friend made us realize we are great travel buddies as we have so much in common when it comes to interest. Make sure that when you travel with someone, you have the same itinerary. Not necessarily the same interests, but atleast you have the same objectives or goals on what to do in your travel.

To all my readers out there, make sure to travel. A lot! Especially when you are still young and can walk for hours. It’s not necessarily abroad or somewhere far. A little dose of the farm can do wonders for your brain. Travelling helps me refresh my mind and experience new stuff. I hope you all feel the same way. But if not, you can always travel through books, trust me, books can lead you to magical places.

I do hope I could visit more countries this year. I just realized I have been out of the country for almost every other month. I wonder where to go this May? Hihi.

P.S. All photos were taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3. I know, i know, I am a very lazy blogger. Hahaha :D

HK is Sweeter the Second Time Around Part 1

Hong Kong is one of the closest country here in the Philippines that’s probably one of the easiest to go to since we don’t need a visa to go there (for us PH residents anyway) and not to mention the cheap flight sales. So when my best friend came home from Dubai told me she wanted to visit HK, I told her I want to see the place again.

All pictures are taken by Iphone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S3…

We arrived around 8pm and decided to stroll around Jordan. HK looks very alive at night with all the lights from restaurants and shops.

We found this BBQ place and I don’t remember how we arrived there. Talk about food adventures!

And I must say, Sichuan BBQ Restaurant is a must try for everyone! The place is cozy, food is great and the prices are affordable! I recommend their Lamb and Beef, any cuts! YUM! Side note, it was my first time to eat Lamb. HAHA!

Of course, the first place you visit regardless if it’s your first time or not…

The picture above was taken during my first time in Disneyland HK last 2011 with my cousin, Pinx. Below is a picture taken there last January 2014.  See the difference with the hair? LOL

HK is also the best place for us Filipinos to at least get the experience of Winter.

1609287_10201286156700160_9504566_o

During our stay, the temperature was around 9-15 degrees Celsius so wearing a coat, hat, scarf and boots is a big YES YES. Like what I usually say, always go for comfort but never compromise style.

There were new additions to HK Disneyland such as the Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point.

Yes! We rode the RC racer and the picture below was my reaction just before taking the ride. You don’t want to see my face after the ride. HAHAHA!

1603561_10201286097418678_1546838137_o

We also tried the Parachute drop which was fun and not at all scary compared to RC Racer. Haha!

20140114_120821

We also rode the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Car which was awesome! LOL at my reaction below.

1609181_10201286048617458_242140331_o

The Mystic Manor was amazing! I don’t have any pictures because I was too stunned with all that was happening!

Don’t forget to try the food stalls too!

Here’s the Mickey shaped pancake and the Mickey shaped rice that I devoured in seconds. LOL

It’s fun to travel and explore the world with people that make you happy.
