Check out what's happening
At Max-Joseph-Platz, another large square in central Munich.

Central Munich

Lots to see north of Old Town Munich and Marienplatz, like Odeonsplatz, one of Munich’s central squares, and Ludwigstraße, one of Munich’s four royal avenues. This is like a photo dump of sorts since I couldn’t really make separate posts for each of these buildings. I only briefly passed through all these buildings by foot, but…

Red Lace

Never thought I’d ever go this bold when it comes to lace, but who would’ve thought bright red lace would look this good? I’ve been slowly trying to inject more holiday colors in my outfits recently, especially since I’ve been doing so many pale pastels and nude tones these past couple of months. I found…

Munich: Olympiapark

In line with the recent Olympics, here’s a cool piece of trivia – Munich hosted the Olympics back in 1972. That’s way before most of us were born! The earliest one I remember was the one in Seoul in 1988. While I wasn’t born yet during the actual Seoul Olympics, I happened to read about it while…

Munich: BMW Museum

What’s there to see in a car museum? A lot. Especially when the brand we’re talking about is almost a hundred years old. BMW, short for Bayerische Motoren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works, is one of the world’s most famous brands of luxury vehicles. The HQ happens to be right in the heart of Munich, so I…

Munich: Man Versus Machine

I drank a lot of coffee while I was in Germany, but my favorite cuppa has got to be the one I tried from Man Versus Machine Coffee Roasters in Munich. I found out about it through some reviews on Yelp – it’s currently #4 on the best cafes list! While Google Maps told us the specialty cafe would only take a…

Sheen: Peachy Pink Pastel

What kind of watch do you wear when your wardrobe is full of dainty dresses and pretty pastels? Sheen’s SHB-100, of course! I know I already wrote about its unique features before, but this time, I’m convinced that the sheer aesthetic quality of this watch is enough to convince you that it’s the perfect peachy pink…

Munich: Marienplatz

First day in Munich, and we’re right at the city center – Marienplatz. The main square highlights the New City Hall, with the Rathaus-Glockenspiel at the center of the highest tower. Every day at 11am, it reenacts stories from the 16th century using bells and life-sized figures/puppets. I was able to watch the 10-15 minute show from…

Germany: Bensberg

Schloss Bensberg, or simply Bensberg Palace, is a must-see in itself, but it’s even better if you catch it on that one special night when they put up a Christmas Market of their own. I happened to be in Cologne on this special night, so what’s a 30 minute drive to see one of Germany’s famous…

A Day With Liah Yoo

A day (or two) with one my favorite K-beauty vloggers, Liah! She was briefly in Manila last August, so Farrah and I tried to bring her around during our free time. I think she’ll be back in January in time for my wedding…? :) I first met Liah in NYC last December, and we hit it off…

I Found My Wedding Shoes!

After months of searching, I finally found my wedding shoes. They came in the mail this morning, and I literally squealed as soon I got my hands on them. This calls for its own celebratory blog post! I was actually thisclose to buying the light blue version of Brazilian designer Alexandre Birman’s signature bow sandals when the white…

Wedding Dress Hunting with L’Officiel

On the topic of wedding-planning and clothes-hunting: Last Thursday, I accompanied my fiancé Rg to a fitting for an upcoming pre-wedding shoot. It was his first time to be styled in fine, dandy suits, and I saw him leave the store feeling rather inspired. One stylish man in the store told us that suiting was life changing – nowadays, people always open…
