Fashion: Waves and Surf

It's the last leg of the summer heat and I just can't get enough of beach therapy! Last weekend I went to Tanjong Beach Club for some catch up sunset sessions with friends. As usual its humid and the temperature was burning that day so I had to wear something that's comfortable and easy to wear yet stylish of course. I was wearing a summer sleeveless top from ASOS and navy blue beach shorts from Folded & Hung Philippines. I used my black classic Birkenstock slippers and paired it with snapback from Aeropostale and sunglasses from Sunnies. More blog post coming soon on my Australian trip for more travel & food guide. Have a good week ahead guys!

Food: Quay West Suites Sydney

We stayed in Sydney at the beautiful and luxurious apartment at Quay West Suites located in the heart of CBD area. They have the best view of the Sydney Opera House and of course, the best Aussie breakfast too. I love food explorations trying out new cuisines and get myself stuffed with the best food one country can offer. I noticed that Australian breakfast primarily consist of cars mainly coming from  bread & pastries and protein sources like sunny side up, sausages and of course coffee and fresh fruit juices should not be missed out. Really liked their fresh raisin bread & this Vegemite spread which originated here in Australia. They even have kangaroo meat and wide selections of cheeses and desserts. You will surely not skip early morning breakfast at Quay West Suites Sydney.

Travel: Bondi Beach Sydney Australia

Here we go! Home sweet home from Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia!
 Once upon a time I was only looking at this cinematic view in Tumblr and Instagram
And from where I stood in taking this photo, it was a surreal experience to finally visit 
Bondi Iceberg. I was blown away by its beauty and just watched the waves for minutes.

Bondi Beach is truly a paradise for surfers in Australia. The Aussie culture, the vibrant summer feels and it's natural picturesque scenery made me loved this place at first sight. It's one my top tourist spot in Sydney especially for beach lovers out there, you'll surely have a hard time to leave the place. 

The nerve. Always making me question why people settle in just one place, if there's more places in the world like this that will truly blow your mind away!

Fashion: Undercover in Opera House

What will you wear if you'll visit your dream destination like Sydney Opera House? I was thinking at first of having my most formal attire to compensate on the grandiosity of this iconic architectural tourist spot in Sydney but still ended up wearing my personal style kind of look. I love black color and it's obviously my kind of style recently. I wanted to achieve that minimalist and sporty look on this OOTD, so here's what I came up with. I was wearing plain white V neck shirt from Zalora Singapore and paired it with my ever reliable skinny jeans from Pull & Bear. I used this gray bomber jacket from Zara Man as I'm literally freezing to Sydney's temperature at night (around 11 degrees).
 I used my woven leather sneakers from Pull & Bear and snap back from Cotton On. I finished my look with some accessories (Fossil watch & Coach bracelet). So there you go, it's simple but its fashion statement was still striking. More fashion blog post for you guys soon so just keep on reading my blogs. Happy Vesak Day to everyone.

Food: The Bucket List Australia

Brunch in Bondi Beach will never be the same if you'll not gonna try out The Bucket List! It's my first time to try an Aussie authentic fish & chips paired with coffee and it was the perfect match overlooking the beach scenery of Australia. I love the laid back atmosphere of this restaurant where you can find ample seats and chairs. You can also order some cocktails and spend hours reading books or bond with your friends at their al fresco tables outside. We ordered some wagyu burger, beef steak, buttered shrimp, vegetable side dishes and fresh smoothies and all were cooked perfectly. The Bucket List in located just in front of Bondi Beach near the entrance area and you will surely love this place so don't you dare miss this food haven spot in Sydney.

Travel: Australia 2015

It was my first time to visit this country from down under. Welcome to Australia! It was one of the most memorable travel experience since I'm with the most precious people around me. It started from a random plan that turned out to be a reality, our most awaited friendship travel goal! It was a big surprise when I realized that they booked a business class ticket via Singapore Airlines (first timer here!) It was such a  great flight experience on board for almost 7 hours from Singapore Changi Airport to Sydney. We all had some good dinner at the airport lounge before boarding, served with bottomless champagne during the flight with world- class food for breakfast and of course SIA's best customer service, it was indeed the best flight so far. Sydney then greeted me the next day and can't wait to share more travel experience with you so just keep on following my blog for more of my Australia travel adventure.

Fashion: Aussie Beach Stroll

That's the beauty of the beach, where there's no other place to get that perfect OOTD shot.
Good morning from Bondi Beach in Australia! The beach life from down under was calling me to grab my best summer outfit and take it the Aussie way. It was way colder that what I expected when I went here last November 2016 but of course the cold never bothered me anyway.

Here's my first day in Sydney and I wanted a simple yet stylish and fashion appropriate look on this location. I was wearing striped tank top from Zara Man and paired it with beach shorts from Cotton On. Instead of wearing my usual flip flops, I decided to use my old time fave white sneakers from Converse. To finish my look, I added statement cap from Penshoppe, classic aviator from Ray-Ban and white beach bag from Factorie Singapore.

So here's the random OOTD shot in Bondi Beach and it's pretty obvious that I had so much fun here. Watch out for more fashion, food & travel blogs on the start of my Australia blog features and more to come so just keep on reading my blog everyone.

Food: Leslie's Tagaytay

It's good to be back in one of my favorite place in the Philippines, the city of Tagaytay. After the Zoukout session in Boracay, right after arriving at NAIA, we went straight to Sky Ranch in Tagaytay City, just 2 hours travel by car from Manila. I was dying to have a taste of all the local Filipino dishes that I missed for almost a year of not going home in Pinas. We decided to have our lunch at Leslie's Restaurant I was really salivating when all the foods were served. We had grilled tilapia, mango salad, kare-kare, chopsuey and Bulalo for the win. Were we're not able to finish it all and was able to take out of the left over as their lunch deal for Php 5,500 pesos good for 10 persons were seriously enough for all our cravings. Leslie's Restaurant is one of the trusted food establishment in the Philippines for that authentic Filipino cuisines to need to have a taste of. Proudly Pinoy!

 Are you up for some extreme sports and water adventure in Thailand? The best part of any vacation will be an adventure where you can release all that adrenaline rush to make one perfect travel adventure. I have tried bungee jumping & sky diving for in some of my most memorable travel experiences. Yet my trip here in Phuket was the first time that I have tried extreme river rafting, ATV ride, Zipline and elephant ride all in just one day. This tour package was truly worth every baht I spent as all the challenges were definitely worth trying again and again. Don't just stay in your comfort zone and always be daring, fly high as sky is the limit.

Fashion: Island Boy

No matter where you are, even if you're stranded on an island, you can never stop me from taking my OOTD. Hahahaha! Of course with there awesome view, I can't resist the chance of having it as my back ground for some summer island photo session. I was wearing shark designed blue top tank from Zalora Singapore and gray swim shorts from Cotton On. I'm also wearing snap back from Billabong and Havaianas slippers, all brands perfect for the summer. This was taken at Khai Island during an island tour last year, such a picturesque beach scenery worth discovering.
