Igorota














I can't believe I survived this wondrous Mountain! Repeat to self, 100x! This trip was the longest I've ever experienced by land. Can you believe it was 12 hours?! Huwaaat! Yes, congrats to my ever dependable legs and my tummy that didn't fail me on those peak hours. Gaahh!!

My experience was really thrilling and over-the-top. For most of my friends who know me, I'm not a super nature geek or an adventurer that people expect me to be. But yeah, I'm definitely a nature lover who appreciates scenery.  I'm in love with the cold and dreary weather that Sagada offers. Most especially, I'm happy with the restaurants/cafes that they have from right to left. You have a lot of choices when it comes to food and drinks. And they are best known for their yogurts and lemon pies. 

If you're the hardcore mountaineer, this is your Mountain to conquer! I definitely suggest for you to visit Sagada ASAP. If you're an adrenaline junkie who loves caves, falls, mountains, and nature as a whole, Mt. Province is the best place for you to see. 

Please note that there will be a lot of hiking/trekking so be sure to bring your comfortable shoes. Plus, it's several degrees lower here so you'll be happy to bring your sweaters and bootsies. 

If you're wondering where we stayed, feel free to look for Sagada Homestay. They have the best view in town! I love their wood houses and their special bonfire hangout for guests.

Hooray for South Korea!




































I thought I could never visit this place, like never. But when you wish hard enough and you put everything in mind to make it happen, it does happen. I still can't believe I'm back in Manila! Those 7 days were my dreamland memories. It made me realize how behind our country is when it comes to technology, transportation, communication, etc. 

What I love about Korea besides its fashion sense, is their weather. Currently, it's Summer in Seoul and the temperature runs from 19 degrees celcius to 25 degrees celcius. You'll feel the sun, but there is this cool breeze from the wind that makes it refreshing. I so wish we can have that kind of weather here in Manila! I guess that's the reason why Koreans have great skin. Hmph! So jealous!

Most of the photos were taken from the temples/palaces/villages we've visited. It was so amazing to look at them because their inside the busy city and they were able to preserve their culture and heritage. Most importantly in Korea, it's a safe place to travel and live.  You don't have to check your bag/purse once in while to check if everything is still there. Thank God! 

I'm so fulfilled and thankful that I was able to visit Seoul. It was worth the time, effort, and money. I'm definitely going back when it's Fall season! 

Before all the excitement went through, yes, you're seeing it right! I'm a purple-headed Grimace! Hallo! What do you think about my new hair color? :)

Second Time Gets Better

If you are wondering why my title is like that, it's because I've stayed in Marina Bay Sands twice already. (insert wink wink!!) Thanks to my super ever dependable BFF who makes everything happen. She lives and works in Singapore that is why I've been visiting this country a lot. Perks of having your BFF just 3 hours from Manila. Wiiiwwww! You'll see her on the next photos below.


MBS Museum

Are you just proud of me? What can you say about my skateboarding skills? Haha! #Fail 
It's not everyday you see a chubby girl riding a cruiser board in her summer dress!

I got my Z-Flex crusier board as a gift from my BFF and BF last Christmas. We bought it at Aloha Boardsports in Trinoma a few days before Christmas. 

Rise Restaurant, MBS

Say hi to my BFF, Khris! We are totally opposites. If I'm Blair, she's Serena. I love black and fierce outfits and she loves whites and dainty pieces. I'm the warfreak and she's the Ms. Congeniality. I love food and she can get away without eating for hours. I'm the straigh thair blonde and she's the curly brunette. I'm the craycray chubby girl and she's the funny simple chic. The list goes on and on but it's serendepity when we became super close friends, like sisters. Is it BFF day already? haha!

MBS Singapore

The view from MBS. You'll see the spectacular Gardens by the Bay. It was my first time to see this nature-loving park because at my two previous visit in SG, this place was not yet built. I was amazed of how it was put to life and how the plants and flowers were flown from different parts of the world just for you to see them.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

This is how our room looks like from the inside. It's classic and crisp just the way I want it. However, my BFF didn't like it that much because it was smaller compared to the room we got before. Maybe because we checked-in a little bit late that's why all the bigger rooms were already taken. But overall, everything looks good. It was relaxing to just lay in bed and chitchat about our days adventure.

Marina Bay Sands Skypark

The best and thrilling part of the hotel is Marina Bay Sands Skypark! You'll really feel like a tourist when you are up there. It feels good to see the view of the city and the buildings surrounding SG. The infinity pool is just breath-taking. It makes me want to stare blankly towards the horizon and just wander my thoughts to happy endings. haha!

Hi from my BF's hairy legs and our boards! hihihi! If you are wondering who takes my photos, you probably know it's him. You can check out his amazing blog here and here.
