Spud Buds Chocolate Potato Chips

Hey everyone! I would like to share to you my most recent food discovery: chocolate-covered potato chips from Spud Buds! They're the same people who set up shop at Mall of Asia, where they served various potato products/snacks. The best part is that the business supports local farmers in Benguet by sourcing potatoes directly from them! If you haven't seen my review on Zomato, you may visit this link.

I saw a lot of potential in their concept and was quite glad when I heard that they recently came up with new products. I love everything potato but they definitely took it to the next level by adding imported chocolate to their potato chips. My personal favorite would be the Dark Chocolate, which had just the right amount of sweetness. I could finish one pack in just one sitting! Haha.

Hongkong Adventure

I thought I had already seen everything there is to see in Hong Kong considering that I've been there a couple of times when I was younger. Apparently not! My friends took us wakeboarding off the coast of Hong Kong (Sai Kung), and this time, while being pulled by a speedboat instead of a cable! How awesome is that? 

It was terribly cold when we went wakeboarding, which only means I have to come back during summer!

Miss Selfridge Premium S/S 2016 Collection

Last April 22, one of my favourite clothing brands Miss Selfridge launched its Spring/Summer 2016 Premium Collection at Le Jardin Manila, Bonifacio Global City. We got a sneak peek on some pink, nude, and cream hues, and vintage style embellishments inspired by prohibition era flapper dresses and couture gowns. It features a mix of twenty-one pieces composed of fully embellished tops, floor-length gowns, and short, striking evening dresses.

Miss Selfridge's Premium Collection is available at Shangri-la Plaza Mall, Greenbelt 5, and Mega Fashion Hall.

A Week in Singapore

I've been to Singapore several times, but none of those previous trips ever lasted more than four days—so when I found out that I was going to be there for a week, I thought it would be boring. What I didn't realize back then was that, although Singapore could be considered quite small, you can never run out of places to visit and things to do.

We met up with a few friends who showed us around and brought us to places popular among locals (and of course, thanks for letting us stay in your apartment for an entire week!). During this trip, I could say that I got to experience Singapore in an entirely different way—taking trains to travel from one place to another (I now have the train stations almost-memorized!), and stopping by hole-in-the-wall kopi tiams for breakfast. Even though we've been to most of the touristy places before, we still didn't mind coming back to Orchard Road, Haji Lane, Universal Studios, Adventure Cove Waterpark, and Marina Bay Sands.

Color Manila Blacklight Run 2016

I clearly remember the time when I joined Color Manila's first running event last 2012 at BGC. It was very early in the morning and I had to force myself to get up so I could make it on time. I like working out and going to the gym, but running? Nah. Perhaps it's because I get tired easily. Although I feel that way, I wonder why running still excites me and I still regularly join running events (weird lol).

So when I was invited by Color Manila to join their Blacklight Run on May 28, I was completely game! They had a press launch at Prive where they gave us a sneak peek on what's going to happen in the actual run. It was really fun to watch the neon colours glow in the dark!

Phuket Day 3

On our third day in Phuket, we caught up on things we didn't get a chance to do the past two days. We woke up extra early to go to the beach to watch the sunrise, had a poolside breakfast at the hotel, then took a quick dip in the beach. The best thing about this day was that we weren't in a hurry at all. We took our time and enjoyed every moment of it!

Phuket Day 2

The second day was no doubt the highlight of our trip. We went island hopping to the various beaches of Phi Phi Islands (apparently, there are two Phi Phi Islands -- Phi Phi Lay, and Phi Phi Don). We visited Khai Nok Island, Monkey Beach, Viking Cave, Pileh Lagoon, and Maya Bay.

Phuket Day 1

Crossed another country off my list -- Thailand! Although I didn't visit the country's capital which is Bangkok (I'm saving that for another time!), Phuket is just as exquisite with the crazy shopping, the insanely spicy food, and the pristine white-sand beaches.
