Hannah Kong Debut Collection

2011 throwback. The last time I met Hannah Kong, she was just on her way to study at Ecole Lesage Paris (of YSL, LV, and Dior fame!). I was still doing photography full time, and I was tasked to take photos of her family for one of the Rockwell magazines. I still remember the moment when her dad…

Wrap Around Whites

Having a straight body all my life, I’ve always believed that wearing a belt or tying something around my waist will give me an shapelier silhouette. This is why my looks often consist of high-waists, empire-waists, and pretty much everything that will make me look less of a stick! These wonderful tie-waist dresses are sexy yet sophisticated, and I…

Silk Scarf

Here’s another one of my no-fuss outfits for a whole day of errands and meetings. A few weeks ago, I accidentally burned my knee while steaming clothes. I wore this during the time when my burn was still healing. I was forced to wear long hems to save people from being grossed out by my…

Pale

Sorry I’m not sorry I’m still into tonal dressing and shades of gray and dusty, pale blue. Ahh, I wish I bought this top in all the colors available. One of my new favorite stores in Japan is called Sense of Place. Urban Research is one of Japan’s fastest growing fashion retailers, with different stores catering to different…

San Francisco: Painted Ladies

One of the most Instagrammable places you can visit in San Francisco is this row of dainty pastel houses called the Painted Ladies (or Postcard Row). You can get the best view of the houses from Alamo Square park, with a stunning contrast of Victorian architecture in the foreground and modern structures in the background. I knew…

Mango: True Romance

Mango’s May trend, True Romance, is right up my alley! Unlike the previous New Metallics trend which I initially thought was a challenge to pull off (until I actually tried it), I knew I wouldn’t have too worry at all this month. I’ve always considered my personal style to be 3 things – classic, feminine, and romantic, and Mango’s latest collection…

I went with the Blue Bottle Espresso flavor. Redun-dun-dun-dant considering I just had a good cup of Blue Bottle that morning, lol. Don't judge.

San Francisco: Hayes Valley

And San Francisco continues to be one of my favorite places in the world. I had one day free before I wrapped my LA-NYC-SFO trip up last October, and I spent it with Kiks, one of my college kabarkadas currently based in The City. He was the same person who introduced me to the Mission District back in 2014,…

San Francisco: de Young Museum and Japanese Tea Garden

My travels are never, ever complete without visiting at least one museum. I’ve been to SFO a number of times before, and I’m surprised at myself for not going to the de Young Museum sooner. The de Young is located in SFO’s Golden Gate Park. It’s easily accessible via tour bus, but my friend Kiks and I just…

VLOG: Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto, Himeji) March 2016

First trip abroad with my fiancé Rg (He kept surprising me with kisses on the cheek in this video, lol. Annoyingly cute!), and first time for my cousin Paolo and his girlfriend Anamae to go to Kansai. It was also my first time in Himeji Castle. Lots of first times here! Since we haven’t planned any…

I got engaged. Now what?

Officially one week has passed since I got engaged, and I have so many questions running in my head. I need to write them down or else my wedding will probably end up a complete mess if I just wing it without properly planning it. I’ve never organized an event before, so I don’t really…

I’m Getting Married!

It’s 3:25 in the morning, and approximately 3 hours have passed since my boyfriend proposed to me on my front porch. I’m writing at this hour because I want to remember all of today’s feelings. I don’t want to go to sleep without writing these all down first! Another milestone unlocked. How can I not…
