Last June 24 my coworkers and I attended a kiddie party that was held at KFC SM North The Block . It was my co-worker's daughter's 1st birthday. :) 

Unfortuntely I was late in the event because I had an appointment before it. Too sad, I was not able to join the party games. I'm not too old for it! :D

Island of Love

Hi guys! This is going to be my first blog about travel :)

I never thought that I'll fall in love with this place! Seriously, I mean this place is rocking every ads in town. But I guarantee you, once you get there, you don't want to leave that place anymore.


Common name right? It is a common word that tourists talk about. It is too popular that you'll get tired of hearing about that place. That's what happened to me. haha!


There are a lot of ways to go there.

By Air

It usually takes 30-45 min. to get to the island of Caticlan via Cebu Pacific Airlines
You can also book flights from Manila-Kalibo although it takes more time because after arriving at Kalibo International Airport you will need to ride a bus or a van going to Caticlan.
You can also book flights at Philippine airline and Zest Airways (Manila-Kalibo)

By Sea

If you are more adventurous, on a budget and wants to kill time,you can ride Roll-on Roll-off (Roro) vessels from Batangas Port to Caticlan Jetty Port which usually takes 8-10 hours of travel.
There is also a Passenger vessel called 2GO. They offer 2 trips a day from Batangas to Caticlan.

By Land

Now, this is what I call "WALLET SAVER, SUPER TIME KILLER". It literally saves a lot of your money but definitely wastes a lot of your time. Although some friends of mine said that the trip was worth it as you can see a lot of different places and sceneries. If you are brave enough to try this trip, I SALUTE YOU! :)
I don't know much about the bus companies that offer trips to Caticlan but there's one company that I know and that is Dimple Star Bus company.


This is the back part of Boracay Island. Usually, when rainy season starts, this is where all water activites are held.  The other side is where the famous beach white sand beach is located. It is a long stretch that's divided into three. Stations 1, 2 and 3.

Where to stay?

There are a lot of hotels to choose from. Especially online. We stayed in this wonderful Resort Hotel named La Carmela de Boracay. It is located along station 2 of the island.

Where to eat?

Usually, almost all hotels have its own restaurant where you can eat. You can also try other restaurants located along the island. Some restaurants offer buffet meals but make sure you come early for dinner because i guarantee you, it won't last long!

What to do?

This is the best part for me. As a first timer in Boracay Island, all I was thinking is swimming, BUT there are many exciting activities to do. Our first activity, was helmet diving. Others call it sea/marine walk. It was real fun for me obviously because it was my first time.

Helmet diving/Sea Walking

The Night Life

This is also a MUST TRY if you want to relax and grab a beer before sleeping.
You will see a lot of Bars along the island and it is usually open til 3am. We tried this place called Summers Place. It was awesome,  the place was packed!

Next day we tried riding the "buggy car" as they say. All I thought was I will drive around the island for 1 hour and that's it. Then the guide told me that we will drop by to 2 places. A mini zoo and the highest peak of the Boracay island where you can see the whole island.

The Buggy Experience

These are some of the views from the top! awesome feeling.

 Reminder: You will have to walk through a stairway and i think it is more than 100 steps. But what I guarantee you that BIG SMILE when you reach the top!

To end this story, and our last day in Boracay we thought we should try snorkeling activities, Parasailing and Island hoping.

This is the most exciting and best activity I have done so far. I was too scared to try it but when I realized I'm already on top, I don't want it to end anymore.


Snorkeling and Island hoping and riding a "banca".

So this is the end of our trip. This is just a FEW of the MANY things you can do in Boracay. Hope you guys enjoy reading this. If you are interested and it is your first time to go to Boracay or Philippines, don't hesitate to ask me. I will share everything I know and I will try to help you to have the best trip in this beautiful country.

gold and black

My coworkers and I ate out in a Korean restaurant named Jang Ga Nae in Ortigas. That was the first time that I ate Korean authentic dishes and I was amazed with the cuisine! It was really delicious! =) (Khen will blog more about this Eating Out Experience^^)

And this is what I wore. =)

Since, we had a plan to chill at Eastwood after eating out I chose to wear these:
My smile without showing my teeth seems super awkward because of my braces. =/

 hello fly away hair!

Don't you love how black and gold match? it's a perfect pairing of rich and bold, these two always get it right!

I got the idea of adding gold accents to fashion outfits from Ms. Camille Co. (She's my fave blogger!) It looks really classy and it's perfect for a night hang-out!

Here's where I got my outfit:
  • gold skirt - bought from the Superb Bazaar last May at the SMX convention during the Phillipine Fashion Week. Unfortunately I forgot the name of the shop. =(
  • Black corset - Closet Chic. 
  • white and beige wedge - borrowed from my mom=) yes! we have the same shoe size and it's only size 5! haha:D
  • white and gold statement necklace  -bought from a mini tiangge near my work located in Ayala called Blessings and Prosperites.
Oh, and here's a photo of my lovely colleagues, my manager's brother and his girlfriend.

I'm in love with turquoise =)

I honestly don't know how to start. Forgive me, okay? I'm a newbie! This is my very first fashion blog post. Teehee ♥:)) 

To start with this blog, I opted to wear a turquoise mullet skirt, which became a trend last summer. "Mullet Skirt" provides a happy compromise—mini in the front, maxi in the back. It's also my first time to wear mullet skirt. It's casually comfortable and it's made with very breathable, light-weight fabric that moves well and it didn’t weigh me down. =)

Let me tell you the story how I got this lovely skirt! 

My boyfriend (Khen) and I were about to go to Megamall to buy summer outfits for our Boracay trip and we passed by St. Francis Square, I was curious with the place so we went inside.  It was my first time to go there and I didn't know that it was a super tiangge mall. 
It offers a wide array of products at rock bottom prices. Lucky me, I was able to buy this skirt and other fab clothes without spending too much money. Well,  I'm naturally a budget friendly person, (kuripot!) =) I believe that being up-to-date with fashion trends doesn't necessarily mean to hurt your wallet. I love to look out for style on the cheap. The idea behind it all is to make fashion an all-encompassing possibility for any person, with any style on any budget. ♥:)) 

I paired my skirt with a turquoise spaghetti strap top from forever 21 which costs not more than 15O php. =)
My sister thought that I was wearing a mullet dress here.=) 

I bought these royal blue tassel earrings and orange bracelet from Bubbles during the Superb Bazaar
colorful necklace from Boracay=)

yellow belt from Genevieve Gozum
So, that's it pansit! =)) I promise myself  to blog more in the next few days. :)  
 These great photos were all taken by my hubba bubba KHEN♥ Watch out for his blogs here.:)

Freshies on the go!

Hi we are khen and hazel :) newbies in the world of blogging! We really had no plan creating blog until one time, Khen decided to create a blog site for the both of us.
Since we dont have much time to blog, we decided to share the same blog.Well atleast if the other one can't manage to blog, the other one can keep the blogsite updated. And we have a lot of things in common so we can share everything here. =) In this blog we will share our Passion for Fashion, Food and Travel.


I am a college student studying Hotel and Restaurant Management. People often say that I am 25 yrs old but I am not! I am only 20 years old.  Do I really look like a 25 year old guy? you judge guys! lol. I love travelling..A LOT! :)  and obviously eating is my hobby! haha. Please feel free to interact with me, share your stories and tips about food and different places. I am a very friendly guy though I don't look like one haha.

I am a 20 year old EFL Instructor and just graduated last year. I plan on going to graduate school as soon as possible =) I just honestly fell in love with fashion right after I graduated from college (because I was a busybee when I was a student so I didn't have enough time to set my eyes on the fashion world) I realized that the world of fashion  is a fascinating place. Fashion impacts everyday life in many ways. I find interest in it and I enjoy shopping or wearing a new outfit. Nevertheless, I'm more of a budget fashion/friendly person. =) These things are my pleasures =)
