Hong Kong 2014

Went to Hong Kong last month for a business trip and captured the region with a 10-megapixel digital camera, with apologies for some of the grainy photos.

This is my third time to step on the soils of Hong Kong, but my first time to explore the place thru the MTR.

Also hopped on to this double-decker buses from the airport to Nathan Road Kowloon via A-21 City Flyer and vice versa.
Tourists and locals shopping at the Ladies Night Market in Mongkok, Kowloon.

A view of Kowloon from our room on the 17th floor of City View Hotel located along Waterloo Road.

This white patent leather flats with embellishment was bought at Ladies Night Market at a price of 120 HKD during this trip and was worn on the first day of the exhibition that we attended at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Souvenir items sold at the Ladies Night Market.  Bought a Hong Kong bell as requested by my sister (it's her collection)

The famous and lively Nathan Road.

Every time I travel, I always see to it that I get to buy a pair of shoes.  What attracted me most are these platform shoes and sandals. And so I did bought one platform sandal, as posted HERE.

Pink Philosophy: How to Be Subtle Yet Obvious in Ballet Slippers and There's More To It Than Just Being Skin-Deep Kawaii

Wait... I am not a ballerina!  
So, what's the fuss with ballet slippers in my title? I'm not going to talk about "that" footwear in this post.  The world of fashion has baptized new names to the colors of the rainbow by associating it with things we are familiar with, like for example: yellow to Butterscotch, gray to Pebble and yes, pink to Ballet Slippers.
My vacation to the Philippines last August, has given me the chance to reunite with my wardrobe, which I missed seriously, play dress-up and be all out in my favorite Ballet Slippers = Pink!

But honestly, there's more to the color pink than just being on trend now and leaving an image of skin-deep bubbliness and irresistibly kawaii.

My Pink Philosophy:

Pink has always been a color identified to Barbie and for anything girly and youthful.  Despite being 20 years junior to the ac…

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.


Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…
