Made in Bangkok

(Photos courtesy of Isse Mariano)

 As I grow older, the world becomes smaller. And that's a fact!

I was busy running errands in BKK when, I bumped into my long lost friend and her family and had that kind of bonding we haven't for ages way back in the Philippines. Haha. (btw, the "long-lost-friend" thing was on her part and the "over-acting" was mine) Now, that's a fvck! hahaha

Yes, raising eye-brows?!? Wondering why I'm soo here in BKK??

I'm glad you asked.

Maybe.Because. Life. Events. Happen.

I was reading 1000 Places To See Before You Die one lazy Sunday afternoon, when my doppelganger had this crazy idea, "I want to become a writer and this is the best time to pursue this dream. Let's go cross-country!! First stop, BKK baby!!" And I was like, huh?? seriously??

And the next thing I knew, I'm here. As a Cost Executive, though ;p

But that's where the fun part comes in. Absentmindedly, you're in-love with the idea of chasing after your dreams. The farther, the higher, the harder it gets, the better. And you keep craving for more. Up to the point that you just want to book yourself a direct flight to the moon because you realized all you ever wanted is to become an astronaut. An astronaut?!? Oh please, not that. Please...

That's not where I'm supposed to be going. Where are my friends? hahaha

Going back, I met Isse and her family at Chatuchak. From there, we took a 2-hour trip to Ampawa Floating Market a.k.a City of Fireflies then went to Khaosan Rd. (take note: in the middle of a red-shirt rally) then to Baiyoke Sky deck to have a better view of the city at night from the 84th floor. Phew! I can't believe we had that kind of energy to fit all those in one day. Fun was really there.Plus, I got to see some places I've never been before in my 5 months stay here. It feels like a BKK tour the first time the second time around. Yay!

That was awhile ago but it Thanks Isse ;p

Anyway, I still heart Manila but who would say no to the Amazing Land of Smiles ;)

Sawasdee Kah!

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me. To the point, I recently spent a morning scrolling through a dozen items on shopping websites. Making me the perfect target consumer when it comes to social media marketing ads. Ha! Sadly, however, I can’t possibly purchase everything on my wishlist and so every now and then I blog about my current favorites hoping somebody can benefit from the fruits of my labor. While there are specific brands I love to cover on a weekly basis today I like to highlight and celebrate similar brands for cheap yet elegant staples to give you more unique and fashion-forward options. Just keep scrolling to get started shopping and see a couple of elegant dresses to keep your outfit on point.

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
