8 Things I Don’t Miss About Globe Laboracay

Hello from sunny Boracay! That’s right, it’s only been a month since LaBoracay but I’m back in the island. In fact, this is my third trip in a span of 30 days! Lol. Right now, there’s not a lot of people and I honestly miss the big crowds and parties so I’m reminiscing my #GlobeBoracay trip. Here are some things that I don’t miss about LaBoracay: (please read with a sarcastic tone) Packing a ton of cosmetics & swimsuits I am the complete opposite of a light packer. Heck, I would pack my dog with me if I could. ForRead more

The extremely hot weather in Manila only means one thing…. It’s time to pack your sunscreen and swimsuits because summer is officially here!! To kick off this season, let me share my review of the Belo SunExpert line and their latest products. I booked multiple trips to Boracay this summer with different set of groups and didn’t realize that I’ll be staying for about half a month in the island! Dream come true! <3 That’s why I’ve fully prepared myself as early as now by stocking up on these sun care products from Belo. My favorite would be this Belo SunExpert UltragentleRead more

Staycation at Belmont Hotel Manila + Annie The Musical at Resorts World Manila

I started a tradition last year to have staycations instead of holding parties during my birthday. That way, I can get to relax and unwind by myself or celebrate with a smaller group. I sent my parents and friends to Discovery Shores Boracay during my birthday weekend last 2015. For this year, I decided to spend it with my sister at Belmont Hotel in Newport City, across Resorts World Manila. For our first meal, we had a heavy brunch at Cafe Belmont. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since I’ve never heard of the restaurant prior to my stay. But ORead more

Why Korea & Etude House Feels Like Home to Me + WIN an All-Expense Paid Trip!

Korea and Etude House holds a special place in my heart because it is one of my favorite Asian destinations and I feel like I owe it to the brand for inspiring me to start blogging about beauty products. I’ve probably been back to their country over 8 times since I was 10 years old because my family loved Lotte World. If we had digicams back then, you’ll be seeing photos from the 90’s here! I’ll update this page once I get ahold of those analog camera-taken pictures but for now, enjoy these random memories from 2006 to 2009. Oh, Etude House! WhereRead more

Makeup Tutorial: Travel with Sephora PH

I’ve never really shared this weird travel fact about myself but I try not to apply any makeup at all when I fly to warmer places while I layer on makeup when I visit countries with a colder climate. In this blog entry, I’m going to share my first package from Sephora Philippines with a simple eyes, cheeks and lips makeup tutorial that I usually do when I’m touring Europe during winter. My tourmates always end up having dry, flaky skin or wind burn on their faces while I’m the only one with unparched skin. I don’t just layer on makeupRead more

Makati Shangri-la’s SAGE Sunday Grill Buffet

One of the perks of growing up in a Chinese household is having parents who are obsessed with hotel buffets. I don’t know about other families but the friends I grew up with also experienced the same. Weekends meant having feasts – it was our way of bonding instead of going to the movies. My mom is constantly on the hunt for the latest hotel membership cards that can give us discounts and exclusive promos. We’ve been Gourmet card (Shangrila Hotels) holders for years now because we love their restaurants so I let my mom tag along with me toRead more
