Pastels, Mints, and Windy Getaways
I went to Tagaytay last long weekend with the friends I can’t live without. :) They are my high school barkada, the girls I’ve grown up with and love like family. :)
We started the day with going to Breakfast at Antonio’s, then to the fine dining part that is Antonio’s, then to Tagaytay Highlands for the rest of the day.
Antonio’s is incredibly photogenic, which is why we took quite a number of shots in the place. :)
Kim’s Schublig Sausage & Scrambled Eggs Php 395 - He says this was very good, and the hash brown was cooked to perfection, crispy and golden :)

Hotel Happy Day 2
The outfit above is actually what I wore for the mini shoot I had with my sister, just for the sake of wearing it. HAHA. At the time, I had no events to wear this to, so I just bullied my sister into taking my photo. :) Plus the top and necklace are from my online shop’s latest collection, so it doubled as a photo for my shop too. :)
Top and Necklaces: Peaches On Top | Mullet Skirt: J’Adore La Mode | Wedges: Icah
And oh, this look is very special to me as this was my first look to ever reach a hundred hypes :) (forgive me for celebrating these milestones, I know they’re just very small feats, but they mean a lot me :))
Now this was what I actually wore, for the lazy day ahead. HAHA
Cover Up: Peaches On Top | Tank: Gift from Alyssa | Shorts: Jellybean | Wedges: Icah
To be honest, the 2nd outfit is my current summer uniform. cover up + tank + shorts, so laidback, yes?
On day 2: Here’s what I did:
- Ate breakfast in bed! Woot! Waffles and croissants yo! :)
- Photoshoot some more
- Looked for shoe options that would match my mom’s nude colored gown by Jerome Salaya Ang (which she was going to wear for the gala night that day)
- I had to go to school for a few hours for a meeting
- but went back to the hotel when my role was finished. haha
- Ate at the Glorietta foodcourt
- lounged around the room. LOL

Hotel Happy Day 1
My sister and I tagged along our parents’ weekend stay at Makati Shangri-La Hotel for a convention. They attended a HONDA Dealer’s Convention, where the 3 day stay was filled with activities and events. My sister and I didn’t attend any of those activities or events, we just enjoyed the luxurious accommodations, very hospitable staff, and the many facilities Shangri-La has to offer. It doesn’t hurt too that the hotel is right across of Glorietta Mall and the Landmark, which kept me and my sister busy when we got tired of the hotel. harhar. Yes we got tired of the lazy lounge lifestyle. LOL
That weekend was just sooooooo easy, (queue breezy, beautiful, Covergirl. Kidding. I know. Corny.) We had mini photoshoots around the hotel too! That was actually my sister’s agenda, to look for nice greenery, and ask me to take photos so she can have more options for profile pictures in the future. HARDYHARHAR And because I took her photos, that means she has to take mine too! So there, that’s mostly how we spent the awesome weekend, not to mention great food in between!
Here you can see what I wore for Day 1, I wanted something very summery, so I opted for a hat (which my mom bought on her trip to Shanghai), sunnies from a new shop called Charlie, a cute summery top, and lightweight shorts. Plus a really comfortable pair of wedges. :)
What we did on Day 1:
- Ate lunch at Saisaki/Dad’s (free lunch buffet c/o Honda!!!)
- mini photoshoot inside the room, and at the pool area
- Night swimming! (with my sister and kid brother! He stayed only for Day 1 as he had school the next day because of the bridging program for K+12)
- Dinner at Landmark foodcourt with sibs (Our conscience cannot take it if we gatecrash the Honda Dinner Buffet at one of the function rooms of the hotel, so we ate out and let our parents get to their buffet dinner. ogles.)

I feel like a really bad blogger, I have not been able to blog for weeks now, and I’m really sorry. Bad bad me. Argh. And oh, the photos above are two of my favorites from my recent trip to Pampanga for the Hot Air Balloon Festival. :)
Anyway, I have more giveaways coming so don’t worry, just let me get through my finals week, until March 31 anyway, and I’ll be able to blog regularly again! :) Yay!

first meal in the city. I loved this place, the owner actually knew how to speak Hokkien! So we had absolutely no problem problem ordering. LOL. I actually have no problem with Mandarin, but speaking in Hokkien is easier for me. Oh yeah, I have zero knowledge of Cantonese (mother tongue of HK).

I wanted that heart shape salami. :(
