Personally, I’ve always been in love with fashion from the past. I’ve always dug around my mom’s old closet for pieces that I can use. The comeback of 90’s fashion started in 2015, stayed strong in 2016, and now it’s 2017, and we’re all still on the 90’s train. There’s just something about their carefree, grunge, street style that we cannot get enough of. The 90’s were all about self-expression, comfort, youthfulness, and being creative with your sense of style, and I think that’s just something that we all crave for now.

What are on the go outfits, you ask? These are the outfits that I put on when I’m in a rush and when my mind is buzzing with a million other things. The outfits I wear on days when I have zero energy and so I put zero effort into the outfits because I know they’ll work. The outfits I usually wear when I go to school because I’m always in a rush when I’m going to school. The outfits you’ll probably see me in 85% of the time because I am by nature, a person who is late, and so to avoid being late, I lessen the time spent on deciding what to wear. My on the go outfits usually consist of a skirt or a dress, so when you see me in a skirt or a dress, know that I probably did not prepare my clothes the night before like I should have.

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.
Last June 25, 2016, I got the chance to shoot with Mr. Denys Jan Lee of 1225 studios, and it was an absolute blast. It was my first photo shoot in a long time so I was really excited but also a bit nervous.

The Calaguas Islands can be found in the province of Camarines Norte. Its white beaches and crystal blue waters can rival the bigger and more popular beaches of the Philippines.

There are plenty of activities to do on the island to get away from the toxicity of the city.

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.
