NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU.

Ever since my exchange in Bialystok, I’ve always assumed that I preferred small cities or big towns over the metropolis. Like what I said in this Helsinki blog post, I like how you know it’s a city but it still feels quaint. Given this notion, people are weirded out by how I am super in love with…

MILLENNIAL SHOPPING AT LAZADA

SPONSORED POST I’ve recently chanced upon the Goldman Sachs Millennials Infographic and it couldn’t be more insightful. We twenty-somethings are the firsts to grow up with the internet and it has thus shaped our generation’s identity more than anything. Not only did the rise of the internet lead to online shopping, it also led to a distinct…

JUST SAY YES

{Giordano denim shirt, topshop tank, people are people shorts} YOLO is the motto. Long before Drake, sayings with the same sentiment have already proliferated pop culture. Dead Poets Society’s carpe diem, Yes Man’s (duh) YES, Nike’s just do it, and my personal favorite, Rent’s no day but today. Seizing the moment and living life to the fullest (or…

THE FAMILIAR

{PLF outfit} Around this time last year, I found myself in the blank page between the chapter that was and the chapter to be. A significant portion of my then 22-year life had ended and a life-changing possibility was looming just around the corner. As much confusion as there was, hope and opportunity were beckoning. All…

NA ZDROWIE INDIE FRIDAYS! :)

{shopRTF shirt, diy cutoff, ecco boots, h&m beanie ; thanks Melai‘s JR for snapping my pics} Decided to dress the part during last week’s Indie Fridays at Il Ponticello. I got asked which band I was with and I went over the moon (I’m a frustrated lead vocalist, oo talagang lead vocalist hahahaha) but once the performers…

HABANG ATIN ANG GABI

{top from bangkok, diy cutoffs, pill shoes} No, this entry is not gonna be sappy like the South Border song of the same title. Far from it, actually. I just thought a Filipino title would be appropriate since my friends and I spent Saturday night going around the capital and visiting some monuments. #itsmorefuninthephilippines  We…

THE POSTAL SERVICE

{tank from bangkok, h&m shorts, old navy sandals} And the clouds all form a geometric shape And it goes fast, you think of the past.   Suddenly everything has changed. – The Postal Service ♬ A sunset to childlike things. A plunge to growing up. Everything didn’t change suddenly, it’s just that you only realized…
