Richmonde Hotel, Ortigas


Taking advantage of the long weekend last August 26th-27th, I booked my mom, Joyce, Ria, and myself a one night staycation at Richmonde Hotel through Agoda (one day before our target check-in date). It was supposed to be a family outing with my relatives, unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a private pool that would fit our budget and preferred date.

Hulio: Our shoe venture


Thiz izzz it! We've finally  made it happen!

Hulio is a Philippine local shoe brand made from handcrafted leather. The name "Hulio" was coined from Hulyo, Filipino translation of July. (It was back in July 2016 when my sister and I came up with the idea.) We just stylized the name and changed Y to I. Hence the name, Hulio.

El Nido, Palawan: Day 3 & 4

Read: Day 1 & 2

Day 3
Island Tour
April 2, 2017

Woke up a little late today. Breakfast was served at the usual time, 7 AM. We had embutido that tasted like meh, with egg, and rice. We were fetched around 8 AM and headed to the beach. We've been renting snorkeling gears for P100/day. Don't worry, they didn't look gross, they seemed clean (and hopefully sterilized). Don't just overthink that these gears had been used by random people in the past. I didn't catch anything after using them, anyway. Though, it's always better to bring your own gears like my friends did.

El Nido, Palawan: Day 1 & 2

Though I wasn't able to attend Coldplay's #AHFODTour last April 4 (sob), I still made sure to experience para-para-paradise in, none other than, Palawan. We booked this trip from one year ago, and now, we're here!

Hey there, mister!

Ria's 2nd birthday party

Party never ends... for mommies! It doesn't feel like a year has already passed since Ria's first birthday party. I remember when I couldn't calm down because I had to check every single detail of her party even if Stacy's asked me not to worry anymore. I DIY-ed the things I wasn't supposed to, just because I felt like I have to. Can you feel me, mommies? We couldn't calm down, could we?
