Bacolod: Zoo • Last day

On my last day, one of the pastors in Bacolod decided to bring us on a little trip to the Zoo! So this is basically an entire post on me freaking out about animals. No joke.

(photos stolen form Lois heh hi.)

Lookin for the turtles!

OMIGOSH THIS DEER. I love him. I just. I love him.

Now watch me quite literally just freak out and talk to animals on this vlog:

My last day in Negros was quite tiring and incredibly fun. I always have such an amazing time on each trip packed with incredible moments and friends whom I love dearly. That's why I come back every summer I can!! I'm always so blessed when I visit that place, (particularly in the stomach region) I just love it there!!! 

Well, this ends my Bacolod, or more accurately Negros Occidental adventures. I'm slowly getting the hang of this vlogging thing, and I'm having so much fun doing it too! I've been using my phone for most of the footage, and so far, it's been good. But my main concern is memory space, and the battery. So I might have to find a better camera to film with in the future. But it's been doing well so far!! Again, this is mostly for personal use and just a little something to look back on. And it's soooo fuuunnnnnn!!!

Bacolod: Sipalay • Date + Movie • Vietnamese Balut (Part 2)

Lois and Clarissa had pre-planned a beach day with their cousin Inah before I even planned on going so it was soo convenient that I arrived and stayed long enough to come with them to the beach! So yay! Beaches are always fun.

It was super amazing just swimming around and feeling the summer breeze on the boat!! I love the sea so much! My family used to go on beach trips every Monday at one point and I never got tired of it!

The next day, I had a nice little lunch date with Eunice and we watched Para sa Hopless Romantic. I didn't really like the movie so much, given that some Filipino movies are paving their way into my heart, this one just stood there. And it's such a shame cause I really liked the concept of having two stories in one. It just didn't flow properly and the ending was pretty crappy.

The following day, Clarissa got married!!!!!

It was soo beautiful, simple, and heartfelt. I loved it so much!!!! I'm so so happy for her, Richard is such a great guy, he is a golden boy. Haha. But yeah!!! I really am so incredibly blessed to have witnessed this couple's growth and love for each other and for the Lord.

That night, we went to the mid-week service at their church and then had dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant to try out their balut! It was amazing!!!!

Bacolod 2015: Pie • Pre-Nup • Wedding Details • Debut (Part 1)

I recently just got back from my week long trip from Negros. It went by sooo fast but I did what I promised I would do: Vlog!! I'll pop that in at the end of this post. It was such an amazing experience as always. This particular week was incredibly busy because one of my best friends Clarissa, was getting civilly married!! That was actually why I went there in the first place. I really thought it would be super nice to have at least one of her Manila friends fly in to support her. The girls really wanted to come but a lot of them were busy, so I really had to push my trip through.

On my first day there, we just stayed in and Baked Pies!

The next day, we headed off to Punong to shoot Clarissa and Richard's Pre-Nup!

It felt soo amazing to be back at Punong!! I missed that place!!!

Chris and I decked the gazeebo out with fairy lights for the shoot. It was soo tiring lol.

The next day, we met up with the couple's wedding planner and visited the resort they were having the wedding in. It was an exhausting but fun day. 


And then, on Sunday Lois and I had a job to cover a Debut. Soo exhausting but we got paid so that's always good. Haha.

And, here's the Vlog!

I'm sorry it's unbelievably long. I'm still learning which parts I should cut and which parts I should keep. I'll do a better job with part two. Anyway! These vlogs are actually just for fun and I'm really not taking this too seriously. It's just a way for me to keep track of things that are happening! And I think it'll be fun to look back on these in the future. :)

Been a while!: Life update

So i'll start off from April because things are already a little fuzzy from February. Since Summer started, i've been going out with my family like crazy! It's been super fun, and I just wanted to write about what I've seen and enjoyed.

The fam went to Banaue Rice Terraces. The place was amazing and breathtaking. We saw a couple of locals who came all decked out in their Igurot outfits for a photo op! They were sooo cute!

After a tiring drive and a stay overnight at Banaue, we headed far north into Sagada where the famous That Thing Called Tadhana was shot. It such a small town crowded with inns and tourists craving for a heart wrenching scream over at Echo Valley.

Meh, I had nothing to scream lol.

I didn't go far enough to get up close and personal with the hanging coffins. Aint nobody got time for that. Plus it was raining and I heard how dangerous it could get. So, I was quite okay looking at them from a distance. Plus I heard you had to sacrifice 20 pigs to please the gods or something if you accidentally touch one of the coffins!

That same night, we headed straight for our last stop: Baguio.

I had a gig with Chrissie at an office event, and it feels soo amazing getting back into singing. I missed it so much.

Me, Chloe, Chelsea, Jerica, & Jol

I also went to the beach with the most beautiful souls, and people. I had sooo much fun with these girls!!

This place is called Pueblo Por La Playa. It is a membership-type housing village with cute little Mexican inspired houses and a private beach down south at Pagbilao Quezon. It's sooo gorgeous there.

MAY 2015: 

This is fab pic of me holding a baby. 

I taught a little basic make-up class for 5 days at church. It was soo much fun!!

These are my girls!! I am so proud of them for getting their eyebrows on fleek!!! It was really such a blessing and it was so heartwarming to see the smiles on their faces. I love the idea of make-up as a tool to enhance beauty and to give a little boost of confidence for these women. There are no ugly women, only lazy women, as we say.

Mandatory Coffee photo.

I am loving my new lip-liner from BeYu. It's the shade 522. Its matte and I am obsessed with it!! 

Also went to the beach with my cousins and friends!

I actually just got back from Pico De Loro yesterday. And I'm already headed off to Bacolod tomorrow! Hopefully I can film a ton of stuff and vlog about it (If I can lol). But I will definitely take tons of pictures. I'm only staying for a week and I am having so much trouble packing because i'm not checking my luggage in. So, crossing my fingers that everything will fit and that I'll have enough outfits to choose from when I get there!!

Such an amazing month, April, I expect no less from May!! I'm sooo excited to see my friends in Bacolod!! I love going there at least once a year. This should be fun!!
