Bohol: #postcardsfromparadise

Spend a weekend in Bohol this month and had an amazing time. I discovered a virgin beach called Pamilacan Island and got a massage on its powder-white shores. I went dolphin watching, and saw not just one dolphin but entire families of them, jumping out of the water. I visited beautiful century-old churches that reminded me of Europe —these cathedrals were destroyed by the earthquake in 2013, but are being painstakingly restored by the government. I saw the Chocolate Hills and the tarsiers, ate good food and met great people — what a trip.

These are my #postcardsfromparadise to Beatle Ringo Star. The Beatles hated the Philippines in 1966 and swore never to come back, but a new campaign by Ely Buendia, the Department of Tourism, and BBDO Guererro hopes to change that. To promote his new album, Ringo is asking people to send him postcards from their own paradise. Send him yours by tweeting @ringostarrmusic with the hashtag #postcardsfromparadise.

COME ON AMERICA. STOP.

Do I have to be WHITE in order be an AMERICAN CITIZEN? Does MY FAMILY have to be the SAME RACE to be AMERICAN? We are JUST AS EQUAL and have EQUAL RIGHTS as EVERYTHING ELSE. This shouldn’t be continuing to happen; IT IS THE 21ST CENTURY, and how we view people differently SHOULD JUST STOP. The very idea that my SKIN COLOR IS DIFFERENT shouldn’t make any difference about how ONE SHOULD DRIVE. It frustrates me that they are still people like that out there, especially young people, THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT WILL BE SHAPING THE FUTURE GENERATIONS, are willing to confront MY OWN FATHER and ask, “ARE YOU EVEN AN AMERICAN CITIZEN?” WHAT GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO DRIVE ON THESE ROADS AND RISK EVERYONE AROUND YOU YOUR STUPIDITY AND HORRIBLE JUDGMENT? I am an American citizen, and I am proud to be a Filipino living in America. YOU GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER AND COME BACK ON THE ROADS WHEN YOU’RE DONE LEARNING HOW TO PROPERLY GET YOUR HANDS ONTHE WHEEL AND OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND YOUR PANTS.

It’s a good day to have a good day. I like this quote. A LOT. It says so much about our lives and how we should live it. It says that every time we wake up, we have a CHANCE to have a good day because we are given an opportunity to have it. Simple, straight forward and just plain right!

As always, my outfits are simple and very easy to mimic. I like simplicity because I need to be out and about at work. However, style is something I’d like to work on without having TOO much on my body. I like simple, crisp and FRESH outfits.

♫ FASHION TIPS FROM THE GIRL WHO TRIES THINGS

1.       MATCH YOUR MOOD- One outfit can transform into so many ways when we match it with our MOOD. Are you feeling sassy? Lazy? Pumped? With this tip, you’d know exactly which accessories to choose based on how you’re feeling. In the SET above, notice that I have one ensemble paired with different accessories, bags and shoes.

If you’re feeling sassy then go for the high heels with the classy bag. I even matched the coffee with the outfits!

If you’re feeling a little classy YET you’d like to be on the casual side, then go for the MINT bag, clogs and have some frappuccino!

So, you’re feeling lazy about dressing up? No worries. Wear your favorite canvass shoes with your pencil skirt and you have just added edginess to a really professional looking outfit! HIGH FIVE!

2.       DON’T BE AFRAID- Don’t be afraid to mix and match pieces in your daily ensembles. It doesn’t mean that an office wear could only be for the office. You can easily transition an outfit for ANY event by adding the right accessories, wearing the right pair of shoes and carrying the perfect bag!


♡ QUOTE OF THE DAY

Would love to know your answers!

Alright! That’s a wrap you guys! Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for dropping. Hopefully, my fashion tips help you with your own fashion journey and I sure do wish that my words will play a very beautiful encouraging song into your head all throughout the day.

If you've reached this far in my post then let’s both take a moment to pray for the people who are struggling. Just whisper a little prayer. That would be the best thing we’ll do for the day.

Wishing you all the best.

Have a grand, blessed day.

The True Essence of Traveling

This trip completed a dream. I finally completed my travel to south. A self fulfilling moment that thought me many lessons in life, not just the idea of traveling but also the little details that make every trip worth the risks.

For me, the journey is more memorable than the destination. Like talking to your seatmate on the bus, listening to their stories and the beauty of their hometowns, standing on the bus for hours, laughing with locals without knowing their names, giving high fives to the children you meet on the road, meeting new friends and wishing you’ll meet them on your next destination. These are just some little details that give meaning to traveling. Seeing and experiencing the attraction is another whole story.


The importance of traveling is not just the beautiful edited pictures you are excited to post on Instagram. It is how that travel experience touched your heart and changed your perception in life and the people around you. That genuine happiness that traveling gives to us.


I am looking forward when the time comes that I couldn’t walk anymore. I will just be sitting on a rocking chair outside on my porch drinking my fave coffee, reminiscing those exciting and challenging travels. (Hoping it will happen! 🙏Fingers crossed! 😌) because I believe that, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” A quote nailed by Mark Twain.

I encouraged you all to go out and do what you want to do in life. It maybe traveling or reaching your dreams in life. Make the most of your life because you only live ones (YOLO) just don’t forget your limitations. Put in mind that everything that is too much is harmful. Be positive and be with the people that make you happy. Give love and appreciate the little things and the people around you. Make more memories and don’t be afraid because the phrase “do not be afraid” is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live every day being fearless.
