A Piece of Peace in Keqiao, China

Tusita Temple or Dou Shuai Tian Gong in Chinese is a temple in Keqiao, Shaoxing City, Zhejiang China. “Dou” means old combat armor, “Shuai” means to command, and “Tian Gong” means the temple in heaven. When my friends told me that we were going on a hike, this was not at all what I expected. I expected trails and walking on grass and soil. Instead, there were smooth roads and cement stairs. This was definitely a one of a kind experience because the temple at the top was simply breathtaking.

Styles and Bites 2016: Food, Flair, Finds


According to their page, Styles and Bites is a “festival of finely curated flavors and fanciful finds for the metro’s pleasure-seeking foodies and shoppers.” Anyone who knows me knows that fashion and food are at the top of the things I love. Naturally, when I was asked by Manila Bazaars to go to the Styles and Bites bazaar last July 2, 2016, I said yes. For only a fee of Php 100, Styles and Bites can be “your urban escape to all things food and fashion.”

Exploring Art: Pinto Art Museum

Pinto Art Museum is a sanctuary in the city of Antipolo. It is a project of Silangan Foundation for Arts, Culture, and Ecology, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Philippine arts and culture. Neurologist Dr. Joven Cuanang leads this foundation. This beautiful museum is such a relaxing, and feel good place. With its white pristine beds and sofas spread throughout the lawn, white open buildings, and of course, gorgeous art installations, who wouldn’t want to escape the city life for a few hours?

Exploring Art: BGC

Bonifacio Global City Highstreet is filled with picturesque spots. The place is beautiful and surrounded with trees and art installations. When going exploring make sure you dress comfortably and weather appropriate. Wear comfy shoes because you’ll be doing a lot of walking. As for me, I went with sneakers. I always make sure an outfit is convertible. By that, I mean I should be able to adjust my outfit according to weather so that I am still comfortable. Continue reading

Exploring Art: Parkfest PH

 

Parkfest PH is a weekend festival in Nayong Pilipino park located beside the National Museum, featuring the fusion of local art, crafts, Filipino flavor and music with a colorful twist. This is the description on Parkfest PH‘s facebook page. This description however, pales in comparison to the experience I had when I went last May 29, 2016.

Parkfest PH aimed to revive Nayong Pilipino through showcasing the works of local artists, and it did just that last May 28-29. Nayong Pilipino, a once forgotten park, was filled with all sorts of people. People came in and bonded with their friends and family as they appreciated the art installations of the various artists, listened to music, shopped from the various crafters. This embodied the Nayong Pilipino of the past.

Blogapalooza 2016: Horizons: Charting the Uncharted

 

I attended Blogapalooza’s Horizons last May 21, 2016 at Centris Elements. This was my first blogger event and I was so excited. I spent a lot of time figuring out what to wear (check out my outfit details here), what to bring, and what to say when interacting with the different businesses and bloggers. I made sure that the first impression I was making  was a good one, but still true to myself. Continue reading

Visita Iglesia

Visita Iglesia is a Holy Week practice where you visit different churches while praying the way of the cross. It is a time to reflect on Jesus’ journey, and journey with Him in the process. I have always been in awe with Churches and their beautiful architecture. Each one different from the next, yet somehow still connected by little details.
