Fashion: Summer in December

It's never too early for summer! What symbolizes the hottest season of the year other than coconut prints which will always be a staple design during summer. During my year end trip to Indonesia, I went to ION Orchard to look for some winter free outfits and was able to get a total match for this look. 

I fell in love with this gray sleeveless shirt from Bershka as they're having sale on past season items. This palm inspired print was from a local Singapore based brand same with my beach bag. Wearibg my ever trusted pair of Havs, sunnies and cap from Aeropostale, I have the best outfit for a beach bum. Summer is coming soon so you better get ready!

Travel: Mutiara Beach Resort Indonesia


Hello again to the world of blogging! I defintely need a better time management for this year 2015 coz I totally can't even have a single blog post due to my ongoing vacation, birthday event, travel and work related stuff. Too much workload but I ain't complaining to all these blessigs and opportunities that came too early for this year. I mentioned during my last post I will start to regularly update you guys so let's do it now!

Towards the end of 2014 I decided to book a year end trip to a nearby beach resort that I needed the most. I had to reflect of what happened for my year 2014 and plan for what I want by 2015. It was such a great experience to just simply bask under the sun and be a beach bum for a day!

I headed to Mutiara Beach Resort in Indonesia for a weekend trip since it's only a ferry away from Tana Merah Terminal here in Singapore. After doing some in-depth research I found this paradise perfect for my weekend relaxing escapade. After my booking for the resort stay, land transfer & ferry ticket, I spent less than $200 SGD for the whole 4 day - 3 nights trip. 

From the ferry terminal in Bintan Indonesia, land transfer via Indotaxi ($60 SGD) two way trip will be additional 1.5-2 hours land travel before you reach Mutiara. I just love how this resort was established in the simplest, natural and relaxing ambience unlike other resort that are too crowded and highly priced. I stayed in a Cabana with no aircon, just light and ceiling fan where everything was made out of wood and natural materials similar to a nipa hut. Everything was so traditional including the food serving, amenities and you'll have the friendliest staff too, what more could you ask for!

Per night accomodation will be around $50-70 SGD depending on the season if its peak period. Food will also be available inside for breakfast, lunch & dinner but bringing along foods with you will be practical esp if you're budget conscious. Meals inside the resort will cost you roughly $4-10 per meal but all food menus I've tried here were so damn good. 

Mutiara Beach Resort also offers water sports, spa package and other sports outdoor activities upon request. They also have a beach house located right in front of the main beach where you can watch TV, read books, surf the internet or get a sun tan for as long as you want. Here's a visual diary of my awesome weekend trip in Mutiara Beach Resort located in Bintan Indonesia. Wishing you all a great kickstart for 2015 guys!

Fashion: H-I-G-H

So far this is the best fashion shoot I gad so far! H-I-G-H as what my shirt shows definitely defines my kind of fashion!

Oh well that skater boy look will always be the best style for me. I just love this dope-boy next-door-look that really shows my inner fashion taste. My HIGH statement shirt was from Market Market thrift store in Manila. I got this super comfy jeggings from Folded & Hung and my FIGHT cap from Penshoppe. this look wouldn't be perfect without this New Balance Sneakers and plaid shirt wrapped around my waist to break the monotony of my blue-color-outfit.

Travel: ICE BAR BGC

I finally made it to Imperial Ice Bar located at Bonofacio Global City in Manila. There's no other place cooler than this, taking a shot of vodka in that freezing temperature. Of course as Pinoy who used to live in 2 seasons (dry/wet) we're all getting crazy of trying out that winter climate so here's the best bar to try out. 

Imperial Ice Bar is entrance fee and drink or cocktails are quite affordable too. It has quite spacious dance floor plus good music equals fun night. We had a blast here with my college friends fee months ago and it turned out to be an epic night- party til 6AM. Here's some of photos I wanna share with you all.
