I promised to myself that I would pursue my new-found love for travelling, and make the most out of the little free time I have. A few weeks ago, I traveled twelve hours to Bontoc, Mountain Province for work. Since it was a mere forty-five minutes away from Sagada, I decided to extend my stay for one more day. It was a day full of adventure and a lot of firsts—I went spelunking at Sumaging Cave, traversed mountains to swim in ice-cold waters of the Bomod-Ok Falls, tried Sagada's famous homemade yoghurt at the Yoghurt House, and saw the popular rice terraces for the first time!

There are no words to express how awesome my 2015 was! I learned so many things, embarked on various adventures, met new people, and experienced some great firsts. Read through the entire post to know why 2015 was one for the books! :)

Last December, I was invited by Asus to attend the launch of their Asus Zenfone 2 at New World Hotel. After lunch, the Asus team prepared a fun-filled afternoon at Intramuros for us to try the camera of the Zenfone 2.

One of my greatest dreams since I was a kid was to visit Universal Studios Hollywood. I wouldn't really pass off that opportunity now that I'm here, would I? We ended early so we went exploring to get a good look at the Hollywood sign and ended up at Runyon Canyon Park. Unfortunately, we were still too far off and the Hollywood sign was not that visible. It was a good exercise walking up and down the hill though.

Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills has got to be one of the coolest spots in LA. Posh architecture, paved sidewalks, palm trees along almost every road, perfectly maintained landscapes, and the beach just a short drive away -- what more could you ask for?
We spent two hours walking along the streets of Beverly Hills and taking photos, then proceeded to some shopping centers in the area to take a snack and do some quick shopping. We also had a good look at one section of the two-mile long Santa Monica Beach, sadly the Pier was still too far out to be seen.

Vegas is amazing at night, but there really isn't much to do during daytime. So to make the most out of our stay, on our second day we went on a road trip to the Grand Canyon and stopped by Hoover Dam and Sedona on the way.
It was scorching hot in Vegas so I wore a light and breezy top but regretted my decision later on because it got real chilly at the Grand Canyon!

Over a month ago, Atkinsons celebrated its arrival in the Philippines and the launch of its new fragrances with an afternoon high tea at Pangaea, City of Dreams. The place was perfectly in theme that when I entered, it felt like I was transported to England two hundred years back!
Okay before I show you photos taken during the launch, let me share a small tidbit about this brand. When James Atkinson, the founder of Atkinsons first came to London, he brought with him a rose-scented bear grease balm, aaaaaand, yes, you guessed it, a real bear!

The media launch was held last month at the Fossil Store in Shangri-La Plaza Mall where we got to experience pieces from their new Fall collection first hand. It was an exciting event with caricature artists, fun activities, and unexpected surprises!
