Daily Outfit: Rasberry Iced Tea

I had a printed shirtdress for work yesterday. Today, I decided to go print-less (and again, because of the hot weather, I needed something light) so I chose this dress. This is also one of my dresses that got buried... and was resurrected from the dead :P

Dress: ForMe, blazer: SM, heels: bought online
I went for a blazer today instead of the usual cardigan... just to make things a little different :)

 The shoes were bought online - from a seller in Facebook. I forgot which seller it was (sorry!). Anyway, the reason I bought this is that it's not to high and at the same time, it has chunky heels... gives great support to my chubby legs :)

the heel is actually wood... and it chunky! yehey!
 Tomorrow is a Philippine holiday which means it's a double pay for me! :) I also get to wear casual clothes... let's just hope I remember that's it a holiday. The last Philippine holiday we had, I totally forgot... so I went into the office wearing business attire... the only one in the office :P

Daily Outfit: Summer in November

November is suppose to be a bit chilly here in the Philippines but for some reason, it feels like it's still summer. Well anyway, I cleaned out my closet last Sunday  (yehey! after 10 million years :P) and found this dress just buried deep in abyss of clothes :D I decided to wear it today since it reminds me of summer...
dress: thrifted, belt: Landmark, bag: gift from sister, wedges: Juan @ Janylin
I was a bit lazy to transfer the things from my weekend satchel to my office bag so I worked around using it... good thing the color matches with the dress. I contrasted the soft pastel colors of the dress with black wraparound belt and black wedges.

I just wish that tomorrow will be a bit cooler. It is harder to move around when it's scorching hot!

Manila Ocean Park Adventure

I had a great time seeing a lot of marine creatures at Manila Ocean Park  :) There are surely a lot of things to do this time around. When I first came there a few years ago, it only has the Oceanarium. Now, it also has the Jellies Exhibit, Marine Life Show, Marine Life Habitat, Antartica Exhibit, Penguin Exhibit, and the highlight of the evening - The Musical Fountain Show. There's also the Fish Spa & the Glass Bottom Boat Ride but due to time constraint, we weren't able to go to.

So, here are some pics on that day (NOTE: this is a photo-heavy post):

@ North Park Chinese resto inside the Ocean Park...hmmm I'm kinda sleepy :P see the people at the background??? 
There was a school excursion that day... so a huge number of people were there - elementary students plus their parents/guardians! Talk about chaotic :P The first thing we did after eating at North Park is to head out and watch the Marine Life Show.
Marine Life Show - sea lions at play

It's probably hard to be an animal trainer... not only will you train but also learn how to dance :P
Since there's an excursion and all of them headed to the Oceanarium, we decided to go to the Jellies Exhibit first...

The light changes every 5 seconds... talk about jellies 'wearing' fasyon jewel colors :D

Another change in the color

Spooky and amazing at the same time...


love the color on you, jellies :D

hot pink! :p

While waiting for the Musical Fountain Show, we were craving for some frozen yogurt...

O my yogurt... vanilla flavor with cookie crumble, cornflakes, M&Ms, and caramel syrup. Yummy!

Christmas Penguin display at the main area

Loving the color of the Christmas Tree displayed at the main area
 For me, the Musical Fountain Show is where I enjoy the most. It's really a great idea to come here and witness this. Hope the pictures did it some justice :P

Project Fishy :D

multicolored lights and water show

great timing of the fountain and the projected image at the background

simply amazing :)

it's already late in the evening but there are still a lot of people...
 After the fountain show, we were finally able to go to the Oceanarium. This is the first thing you'll see when you enter...
what's up with the purple theme today? :p


love the shot of light and shadow

Getting tired... need to sit first.


Trivia about penguins at the Penguin Exhibit
At the end of the day, I was really exhausted but I also had lots of fun! There's some on-going construction happening outside the Ocean Park... I'm wondering what attractions they're adding... oh well, at least I have an excuse to visit again next time.

Daily Outfit: Oceanic

Yesterday, my friends and I went to Manila Ocean Park. I really wanted to wear casual clothes because I know that we’ll be walking around a lot. My accessories are both gifts – the multicolored earrings is from a friend and the satchel is from my sister. Too bad you can’t see it from the pic but the top is actually knitted and its a bit see through. My Keds sneakers has black and white stripes… it’s super comfy! :)  So here's what I wore:

knitted top: thrifted, earrings: gift from friend, bag: gift from sister, shoes: Keds (Black & White Stripes)

the top is actually a bit sheer; upclose look at the multicolored earrings
I'm posting my pics at Ocean Park on a separate blog.... it's photo heavy! :P

Here's my outfit for today... a combination of hard and soft, feminine and masculine...

Tomorrow, we'll be going to Manila Ocean Park. This will be the second time that I'll be going there. There are a lot more attractions now than when we first went there. I'm looking forward to a weekend outing! :) I'll be posting pics from my visit there for sure.

Daily Outfit: Blue Tiger

I'm feeling a little blue today (color-wise that is). I'm also wearing one of my favorite dresses ... it's comfy, forgiving in the belly area (very, very important for me) and it's animal printed! :) The dress also has subtle stripes across so it's like I'm wearing print-on-print!

dress: Samlin@SM, bag: given by my sister, heels: Mario D'Boro

upclose pic of the print
Nothing much to tell about what happened today except that we have a lot of things to do in the office... urgent requests here, multiple projects there...maybe it's because our customers are beating the Christmas rush (of year-end deadlines) :P

I hope that come December, we'll have more chillax time in the office!


New Beginning

This is supposed to be the first year anniversary month of my blog. However, I don't feel it deserves to be celebrated --- I haven't posted anything in a long time :( I lacked the discipline and will power to sustain this blog. I also lost the purpose why I blog. In fact, I even forgot my password prior to opening Blogger.

Of course, I have no one else to blame by myself. At times I'm too lazy to even open my blog. Adding to this, my dissatisfaction at my day job is just sucking my energy.

However, yesterday, I realized that I want to have my creative outlet back so that there's something useful  to do with my time and also have a diversion from the other things happening in my life. I now remember the reason why I open a blog in the first place. To share my passion for anything quirky & classic, to show my interest in fashion and travel, and to know other bloggers to interact with.

So with this, help me celebrate the first day of my return to blogging instead :D My posts may not be as much but I hope I can get more feedback and suggestions from everyone. Hoping to reconnect with my blog friends and meet more bloggers as well :)

P.S. Apologies if this post is too melodramatic... I just want to let it all out :)
