The US Capital

OMG I cannot believe my dreams came true last night and personally met Rih! haha Not! 

It's the second day of our trip and we spared no time touring the city like real tourists. Started off by hopping on the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tours and riding it around town, exploring the most popular and enticing places one can go to in Washington DC.  It was exhilarating finding myself in Arlington Memorial Cemetery once again. It really just brought back great childhood memories; I remember the first time I visited Washington, almost 16 years ago. 

Although they have since repaired, made improvements, and added some great addition to the monuments, memorials and attractions, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit DC again for a second time. What made this even more special was the fact that I had the chance to share these precious moments with my niece, Kianna.

In addition to walking for hours on in, hopping on the bus and exploring various sites; we also  visited the famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, took a scenic cruise on the river and participated in a very gratifying and informational night tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable with the ability to deliver great information in a very entertaining way. I particularly enjoyed the memorial dedicated to Franklin D. Roosevelt, where they had four instalments, depicting the highlights of each time he was in office for the US presidency.

Exploring Old Town Alexandria

Shoes: TOPMAN Cuff: Hudson's Bay

Road trips could be so much fun. Today, our estimated eight hour road trip turned in an eleven car ride, that felt like forever. Being welcomed with unexpected traffic and having to make several stops, I could not help but feel restless in the car. I drove for almost seven hours and required multiple cups of iced coffee,  a hefty playlist I can sing and dance to.

CPFW 2014

 This post is long overdue. Back in June, I had the pleasure of working for CPFW, Canada Philippine Fashion Week.  A week long event, showcasing amazing,  talented Filipino designers from the Philippines. Their work are incredible and some of their creations just took my breath away. It was truly an honour being able to work with the designers side by side, from unpacking the garments to fittings, to working backstage during the show.

My First Camping Trip

I never liked the idea of camping. The thought of sleeping on the ground, even with an air mattresses, when I know I can comfortably sleep in my own bed, just didn't sound enticing to me. The notion of bugs and insects being present 24/7, made camping even more unappealing. But this year, I decided to take a leap of faith and join the 2nd Annual Divuh's Camping Trip. And it was a very wise decision because on this trip, I experienced firsthand the best, and worst possible scenarios that can occur, during a camping trip.

Me and My Issues

ASOS Jacket, American Apparel Shirt, Kill City Jeans,  ALDO Shoes,  Michael Kors Watch

In the beginning of the year, I decided to challenge myself to be more social and overall become a conversationalist. An ultimate ability to engage in a coherent conversation with strangers, without the awkwardness. Often times, I have reservations of engaging myself into a crowd, because of the fear of being judged. A common fear that everyone has but should be eliminated from our minds; because at the end of the day, we shouldn't really care what people think of us, just as long as we are happy.

Art, a Form of Self-Expression

Last night, I went to an Artist Event at the Art Gallery of Mississauga. Where the pieces for the auction are currently on display, to be admired, loved and wanted. And let me tell you, there were some beautiful pieces I would love to have, particularly this evocative painting.
