Manaoag & Baguio in a little over 24 hours.

Last Saturday midnight, we took the bus going to Manaoag. We were supposed to go to Sagada with some friends but we missed the bus going there. Since we were gonna go to Manaoag for our regular trip anyway, we decided to do it instead. We heard Mass at the Manaoag Church at 6am and then hopped on the next van going to Baguio City. It was our second time to do this and basically, we spent the day roaming around the city. (Will post about our first Manaoag/Baguio trip soon)

Our Lady of Manaoag Church.

We were supposed to take a mining tour but it was already closed when we got there so instead, we went to Camp John Hay to try out their zipline/rappelling and target shooting.

I got the top and leggings from Hong Kong, and those sneakers are from Coach.

I brought my Adidas bag.

It was my first time to do this!

Target shooting with Nikko

Dinner at Sizzling Plate Baguio. I'm not sure if it's the same as those in food courts but the dishes are more expensive in Baguio.  

Since it was a long weekend, there were too many people in Manaoag and Baguio. We even had to wait for 5 hours so that the bus going to Manila could accommodate us. It was good the terminal was near North Haven Spa, which made waiting for our bus very relaxing.

North Haven Spa. It's highly recommended! :)

Also, thank you to the Navas for treating us to lunch! :) Sayang pala we didn't get to take a picture.

Long weekend well spent. :) Even if it was just for around 24 hours. Haha.

“A young lady should be as a delicate flower; a fragile bud, with care, will blossom by the hour.” - Sarah MacLean

As promised, I would be posting final photos of shoots I've done in the past. This was in August 2011, by Geo Esguerra. This was our second set.

Dress is by Glitterati

Shoes are by Michael Kors

He wanted something natural, thus minimal make-up.

I like this dress a lot 'cause it's dainty and sexy at the same time.

I like B&W shots.

Posting photos of our third set soon. :)

Sephora Make-up Studio Blockbuster

I've been dreaming of this for months and now, it's finally in my hands! :) Thank you so much to my cool grandma, Nanay for spoiling me!

The kit features 96 eyeshadow shades, 84 lip glosses, 6 cream eyeliners, 2 eyeliner pencils, 3 blushes, 1 bronzer, 1 mascara, 4 applicators, a large mirror, and stand up legs! <3

It's also limited edition. You better hunt down your family and friends abroad 'cause the last time I checked, it's not available on sephora.com anymore. :)

Partying like it's 2012. Oh, it is. :))

Last Saturday was a close friend, Camps's 25th birthday party. We had tons of fun dancing and partying the night away in Izakaya, Greenbelt.

I wore this dress I got from Chase. Shoes are by Rajo! for Parisian, Headband from Girl Shoppe, Necklace from Boracay and bag from Prada.

With the birthday girl! :) Made her a Ferrero Bouquet!

With Nikko <3

With the Jboys and girls

Hi! <3

Obviously, we were having fun.

With the funniest group of boys

and the funnest group ever. :)

Outfit photo again before leaving the parking. Hahaha.

HK Ocean Park

The best part of the trip was our visit to Ocean Park. The different things one can do inside truly exceeded our expectations. 

I don't like doing this sign in pictures but I was compelled by the photographer. For some reason, I like this picture a lot so we purchased it.

Random shot by my boyfriend. I think we were discussing here whether or not to purchase the picture above.

This is what I wore: red blouse used to be my mom's (Yes, I know she's cool like that), black jeans I got from a department store, brown suede boots I got in Maryland, three years ago.

My family's so excited to see the pandas!

Awww!!! <3

With one of the mascots, firefox. :)

Here's what an actual firefox (or red panda) looks like. :)

You can take the cable car going to the other side of the park where most rides are.


The Flash -- This was pretty scary but super fun!

Look at those cute dolphins! <3

And those cute seals!!! <3

We just love taking pictures in front of Christmas trees. :)

Belated Merry Christmas! <3

The happiest place on earth!

Day 2 of our HK trip was dedicated to Disneyland. It was actually my first time to be in a Disney Park so I was super excited.

Family picture!

In front of that inter-active Buzz Lightyear game/ride.

It's a Small World! My favorite! :)

My Disney princesses!!! <3 The parade actually made me cry. Yes, I'm shallow like that. 

This is in Toy Story Land. I look like a little toy, don't I? :))

At Autopia. I drove and Nikko was my passenger. :)

At Tarzan's Treehouse. :)

Sleeping Beauty's Castle! :)

Disneyland didn't disappoint me. :) Can't wait to see the other Disney parks!
