Ho Chi Minh Day 3: Search for Authentic Vietnamese Coffee

This day was officially allotted to Vietnamese coffee. You know, complete with the coffee filter and all lol. We searched the web for a good place that offered it and was glad that we found one several minutes away from our hotel. The coffee shop-slash-restaurant was called Cafe Runam and it gave off the same vibe as the TWG branches back home.

Ho Chi Minh Day 2: Cooking Class

Our first day was packed with activities. Yes it was exhausting but also loads of fun! If you haven't read my writeup about it yet, you may do so here.

On day two, our group joined a cooking class and we felt like farmers for a day! Before we started preparing the dishes, we gathered and harvested all the necessary ingredients. We were taught on how to pick various herbs, vegetables, and even mushrooms and were given an overview on the medicinal uses of each. Read on to find out what I cooked!

Errand Day

While we were in Makati for an errand, I asked my boyfriend Ryan to take a photo of me so I could post it on Instagram. I was surprised because he immediately started snapping dozens of photos-- lucky day! I don't want to flood anybody's Instagram feed so I decided to post the rest of the photos here. :)

Ho Chi Minh Day 1: City Tour and Street Food Tour

The latter part of 2016 was super hectic for me because there were so many things going on in my life. And because of the holidays and a number of out-of-town trips, I had zero time to go online to write blog posts. 

...but better late than never, right? In this post, I'll be sharing photos of my trip to Ho Chi Minh last October! It was my first time in Vietnam so everything was new to me. Read on to know what happened on my first day!

Althea Box #13: Vitamin Box Review

(Photo from Althea)

Hi guys! I just want to share with you my first ever purchase from Althea, an online store that carries Korean skincare and beauty products. The entire process was sooo convenient and hassle-free. I recently ordered a Vitamin Box which contained seven full-sized items for only Php 1,350 (regular price is at Php 6,006). I didn't encounter any problems. AT ALL. My order even qualified for free shipping -- yay!

Corregidor Adventure

Corregidor is only an hour away from Manila by ferry so I don't know why it took me soooo long to visit the place. Definitely a must-see for history buffs! Click the link below to read about my experience.

Chestnut Brown

I've been asked quite a number of times where I got my hair dyed and people would be surprised when I tell them that I colored them myself! My favorite brand is Liese Bubble Hair Color-- it's so easy to apply (just like applying shampoo to the hair), and it leaves my hair soft and moisturized (unlike other brands I've tried).

The color I currently have on is Chestnut Brown. It's a very dark shade of brown, but turns into a lighter shade after a few weeks. I'm pretty happy with how the color turned out. Though Rose Tea Brown still tops my list-- it's a shade of brown with a slight tinge of red.

Big thanks to Ben for the photos! Check out his website and Instagram here and here.

Boracay in December Day 2

On day two, we had a little bit of time in the morning for some water activities! We tried parasailing, flyfish (my fave!), and helmet diving. The weather was surprisingly good despite it being the rainy season.
