The sweltering heat is enough to make one wish of an eternal beach vacation. Hearing college kids make plans for their summer break, i have a longing to go to the beach, put on my bathing suit and just sip cold fruit juices. Mid week, I visited my grandma and since she lives 30 minutes away from the sea, I packed my summer essentials and enjoyed the bliss even for just two hours. Didn't surf because the waves look menacing and there are a few people milling about, mostly the pro surfers (I am just a novice :) . But it is quiet and I enjoyed the sound of the waves and the salty smell of the surf. There's not much fashion to see in this post but i do hope you enjoy my pictures. Have a great day Lovelies!

It came cracking down

" there's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down" - Don Dellilo


Aren't you glad it rained over the weekend? I was at Baguio when the first drops of rain fell. By evening, it was misty and the whole place is awashed by the fine shower of rain. Its cool breeze just about soothed the weary traveler's heart. In the morning, everything was green again and a lot of people were joyous of the weather. You don't hear much praise about the rain but during these times, it is a much welcome respite.

p.s I noticed I just about recycled my outfit from my last post hihi. i totally love them. new outfits soon.



My kind of interior heaven

Mar 9, 2010

So how does one choose a hotel to stay in? Popular answers would be the strategic location, good service, comfortable rooms. The one we stayed in HK i chose for the interiors. According to their website "it is a boutique hotel as though fashioned from Salvador Dali's fertile imagination". Located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area, it is just a stone throw away from the nightlife in Knutsford Terrace and the shopping street of Granville Road. My cousin and I ended up until the last day with no shopping in sight and thankfully, the shops nearby closes at 11 pm so we didn't go home quite empty handed.

The photos above are taken at the hotel lobby. I just love the clear chair and the transparent glass desk. I wonder if work will be easier if one has an office like that hihi.

The hotel bed with the surreal painted frames. These beds are the most comfortable I've slept in. My cousin told me that some people buy hotel pillows when they check out. One even bought a bed!

A lot have been asking about my loot in HK. These shoes I bought the night before we left is pretty as well as functional. We were dropped off in the wrong terminal and guess who was running around the airport? Buti na lang, we got there on time and 5 minutes before the plane closed haha. The shoes survived.
