Flight Cancelled

Yes. You read it correctly. Our flight back to Manila just got cancelled.

Due to the heavy rains in Tagbilaran, our plane from Manila couldn’t land. So here we are back at The Bellevue Resort 🙂


I actually don’t mind staying in Bohol for another night, especially in this great resort 🙂 That means, another night of yummy food, great ambience, relaxing views AND another restful night on a hotel bed (yes, I love hotel beds). Yipeeyayay!

Since I’m back for another night, I decided to take more photos 🙂

Just scroll down to view photos 🙂


Our room for tonight ♥♥♥

Time To Have A Vacation :)

A lot of things have happened in my life the past few months, both good and bad. But at the end of the day, I still thank God for a great life He has given me… a great family who supports me in everything I do and reliable friends whom I can always count on.

After having busy days and sleepless nights, my husband and I finally found the time to get out of our busy schedules and relax. For this, I still thank God for this opportunity.

So this is going to be our home for the next few days…



And with this great view…


I can’t help but fall in love with this place.  This is our 2nd time here and I am still in awe on how beautiful and relaxing this place is…


Definitely a place made for both young and old. See how they made sure they have a play area for kids?



And of course,  I just had to take a photo with this cute giant chess set. Haha!


Thinking of visiting Panglao for some sun, fun and relaxation? Make sure you check out The Bellevue Resort, Bohol — definitely a resort worth visiting! ♥♥♥



Ps. You get that cute puca shell necklace upon arrival at the airport 😉

Oh! I can’t believe I forgot to post Day 3 and Day 4 from this trip!  Now, to catch up on my postings… 😀

Since we basically finished our Day 1 and Day 2 budget and itinerary, Day 3 was spent just walking around, chit-chatting, laughing, eating (oh-so-yummy Din Tai Fung!) and spending more time chit-chatting in Starbucks!

Non-stop chit-chatting!

110912 What I Wore : HK Trip Day 2

Day 1 was spent eating and shopping in Hong Kong with my friend, Jack.  Day 2 was nothing different but still FUUUUN!  Of course, what else is there to do in Hong Kong but to eat and enjoy their yummy food and shop for great deals in all the stores you get to pass along the way (shopping is so convenient in HK, I’m glad I don’t live there as I’ll end up not saving even a single cent!  Haha!)

I never miss having at least one breakfast in McDonald’s Hong Kong! Yum!

Some of the food we enjoyed in HK!

We finished our 4-day itinerary (and 4-day trip budget) in 2 days!  Are we cool (or more of poor?) or what?!?!  Haha!

Here, There, Everywhere!

This is what I wore on Day 2.  I just had to include the human sized lego photos I took while we were at Times Square, Causeway Bay.  They are sooooo cute!  They were still setting it up when we were there and I’m sure they’ll be so much cooler once they’re done!  I can’t wait to see the whole set-up next month!

Knitted Sweater – Forever 21

Inner White Shirt – H&M Divided

110812 What I Wore : HK Trip Day 1

Last November 8-11, 2012, my dear friend, Jack, and I decided to go on our very first trip together. Destination, HONG KONG! Geared with pocket money and our 4-day shopping itinerary, off we went to our most awaited vacation!


Needless to say, we really had a great time together. We made new memories together as friends and just proved that we could really stand each other’s company and presence 24/7 — or should I say, 24/4? Haha!


Anyway, here is what I wore on Day 1 🙂


Burnout Tee – H&M Divided

Printed Skirt – Forever 21

Drawstring Denim Jacket – Life In Progress (Forever 21)

Accessories – Parfois, Forever 21, Anarchy Street

Shoes – Topshop

(sorry, forgot to take a photo of my shoes, you’ll see it in my Day 4 post)

Hoarding Alert In SaSa!

I have always loved visiting SaSa in Hong Kong.  It is make-up heaven for me!

I love looking, testing and buying make-up from this store as they have almost everything (Bonjour and Colourmix are the other 2 stores I love visiting, but Sasa takes on the first spot!) or I should say, THEY HAVE EVERYTHING!

Since I’m so into Korean/Japanese make-up lately as I feel they match my skin better, here are the items I bought from my trip last week. 🙂

Top (clockwise):

1. Pore Putty BB Cream – I think I finally found the perfect BB cream for my skin 🙂  It provided just enough coverage (don’t expect foundation-type coverage) and it felt really light on my skin.  It also has SPF 50+, as claimed and seen on the packaging.  Happy happy with this 🙂

2. K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Two-Way Eyebow (02) – I bought my first pencil from Beauty Bar and was quite happy with it.  That’s why I decided to buy another one for my personal stash (aka hoarding).

3. K-Palette Zero Kuma Concealer – I got shade #1 as recommended by the SaSa girl and I think it’s the perfect shade for my skin type.

4. K-Palette Zero Teka Oil Control Powder – I have oily skin and I started to use this when we were still in HK.  Surprisingly (Or was it just psychological?  Haha!), my face was less oily the entire day!  Let’s see how it performs with Manila’s weather 🙂

Yes, I’m officialy addicted to these brands/products! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Ps.  My Partner, Jack, and I went in and out of every Sasa, Bonjour, Colourmix store we saw along the way — even if we knew that we’ll see exactly the same brands and type of make-up in each and every store.  Haha!

We took this photo, not knowing that the sign board of SaSa was right behind us — it was following us!  Haha! 🙂

Finally! My Dr. Martens! Looooove!

I have always wanted a pair of Dr. Martens ever since I was in grade school.  It was the ‘must have’ shoes back then but it was something I never got as my Dad thought it was quite expensive to have and use as school shoes (which I totally agree). 😀

Now, after X number of years and seeing the DM’s floral collection, I fell in love with these Airwair with Bouncing Soles all over again…

The pair which made me want to have one at this age.  Aren’t they just cute?!?

What really stopped me from getting them before was the impression of the sole being too heavy.  So when I went to Hong Kong last week, I decided to drop by their store to try them on and see for myself.

To my surprise, they are not heavy at all and they are so comfortable!  It’s either they improved on the sole from years ago or I was completely wrong with my impression 🙂  Happiness!

Here was the first pair I tried on as I’m really a sucker for florals 🙂

 It was sooo cute!  It even matched the outfit I was wearing that day — too bad, no photos allowed in the store 😦

After a few hours (yes, I think my friend, Jack, and I spent at least an hour in the store), I decided to go with a safer option (as I think DMs lasts forever!) but still not give up on having a pair of ‘floral boots’.

This is what I ended up getting — basic black with subtle red floral print.  They actually make the boots look rugged and worn out from afar.  Just how I want my leather boots to be 🙂

What do you think?  Did I make the right choice?  Let me know!

I’m sooo happy!  Uh.  Oh!  I really think I’m addicted to DMs.  Getting the first pair I mentioned above is still an option.
