❋ Travel : Bro-Sis Bonding in Angeles ❋

Oh hai lovelies!
It was a really brief yet extra tiring weekend for me since I do most of my work on Saturdays on Sundays.

Last week, prior my actual birthday (oh yay it was my buuurday), my brother and I went to Angeles City, Pampanga... well just because I wanted to go somewhere for my birthday. I haven't really gone to much places with Bobby, initially because he wasn't keen on travelling like me. Another fact is that this homeboy is seven years younger and not outgoing as I am, so I suppose that explains it all.

Now my little boy is no longer really little (never really was, actually) I've set up plans to bring him to some nice spots in the country prior my relocation. We've already gone to several places before but mostly in Manila and Laguna, which isn't really the type of thing I could call travelling. I suppose I'll talk about it some other time ^_^

The Road to Central Luzon

After checking with people from Cavite City, I figured out that travel time wasn't too long if we would leave early in the morning. However, arriving too early also means we have nothing to do at all especially since out check in at the hotel was at noon.

Bob and I went to the Saulog Bus Terminal at about 0600hrs but only then did we find out that their trips to Baguio were now only limited to two per day. Not long ago they used to be available until 0830. I was told by the driver and bus conductor that we can take the trips to Baguio from Avenida where they are currently stationed in Manila. The fare to this stop costed us 58php each. Please note that Cavite City to Manila buses don't all have a final stop in Avenida or Lawton since it's always subject to change. Upon reaching the Avenida station, we took the trip to Baguio through Genesis Bus Lines and paid 139php each.

Hello Paradise Ranch

Upon arriving in Dau Exit, Pampanga we took a tricycle ride to the hotel I booked. We dropped our stuff at Rumi Inn Apartelle which I paid a very cheap discounted rate through Agoda. I got the same tricycle to take us to the jeepney stations that will drive us to the Paradise Ranch.

♕ Hair : Purple and Blue Ombre Trial w/ Manic Panic Panic & Punky Colour ♕

Hello lovelies! Do you likey likey my hair?  

Alrightie, so this is my current hair! It's my first time to do some ombre on my own, not to mention that it's also a two-toned one. Hmmm have you heard of balayage? I'm not sure if I can say that my hair is like that at the moment, trying to look natural and all - but the colors aren't really... natural. O.o well at least, I meant the way I've applied the colors. LOL.

So this won't be a tutorial because it's basically my first time to do an ombre. Obviously I've learned the do's and don'ts and could-be-better's in doing it myself.

Check out my video!

So lovelies, here's what I did to get this hair.

As usual I started off with platinum blonde hair. This way I was able to achieve the actual colors.

✿ Update : Pinkie Crashed! ✿

Hey lovelies!

So last week my dear Pinkie the Lappy has gone through some serious surgery. Apparently the hard drive crashed and I thought I was going to lose all my files! Yes I almost died, and that's one reason I'm a few days behind my planned schedule.

Oh please forgive meeee!!

Pinkie is home! <3

❋ Travel : Strolling Alone in Cebu ❋

2013 wasn't really such a pleasant year for me. I had so many challenges in life - both personal and professional. It was hard to deal with, I made wrong choices that got me ending up with bad results. When 2014 came, I made an oath to myself that this year things will change.

I started off by travelling. I usually go around places but then I thought it would be a good year to actually visit more spots than my usual summer vacation. On the 8th of January, which is my mom's birthday, I took a plane later that evening and went to Cebu.

My first trip to this beautiful city was back in December 2013 when I joined my previous company's relief operation for the affected crew members due to Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Bagyong Yolanda. The place felt so welcoming so I decided that I had to go back and stay a bit longer so I could go around.

I left Manila totally unprepared and uncertain of what awaits for me. I almost missed my flight since I still had to drop by the office to do some work that I really wish I didn't have to, but then I still did anyways. Five minutes before the counter closed I was able to checkin and yay!! When I arrived at the Mactan Airport, I took a van to Cebu City that costed me about 250php since I joined a group of several other people. If I was alone, I would've paid about 750 - 1200php.

I stayed over Harold's Hotel where my friend, Fe, was staying for business. We worked in the same company so basically I was crashing in for free! Since she was at the office everyday, I took the mornings off on my own.

✿ I Must Update... oh yay! ✿

Oh hai Lovelies

OMG! I've been so busy (as usual) and I wasn't able to make any updates last month :( Oh well, so I think I must organize a schedule when I will make entries! Hmm, good way to keep track on my blogging and video making.

I have so many stuff to update, upload and write about sometimes I wish there were more than seven days in a week. But then - I know not everybody would be happy about that.

Anyways, Alex and I celebrated our 4th month together online. I know I still have to wait for a few more months before my move there but it's all worth it. 

My current dilemma now is how to send my favourite clothes there since I have tons and where to get Asian makeup that I like - which apparently is not available in Sephora or other stores. For now my best bet is get mom or some friends to send them to me.

Now I'm still waiting for my delicious cookie gift to arrive in Wisconsin. I purchased some baked goods at Sugar Daddy's to be sent there but unfortunately it wouldn't come on time. Still good though, it should be arriving today. They really have nice packaging although I know's it's expensive for cookies! I purchased to pieces for $13 plus shipping -_- but I don't really mind. Still looks elegant, classy and yummy. Oh lovely gourmet cookies!
