Happiest New Year to y'all!

I'm still in the Philippines and currently in Manila preparing for the New Year's celebration. The wi-fi here is more stable unlike back in the islands so there is no more excuse to skip a week in blogosphere. We stayed in Discovery Primea hotel in Makati and just exactly did the things that we'd like to do. What to do when in Makati? Shopping and more shopping of course. Well, our hotel was adjacent to the Glorietta mall and we shopped 'til we dropped.

We found ourselves in Rustan's Department Store where they had this winter wonderland corner which was nice for photo op.

Merry Christmas from Australia and the Philippines!

I'm sorry for the delay of my post, I'm currently island hopping in the Philippines. As of the time of writing, I've already been to my 10th island in my 10th day here since arriving from Australia. The weather was not so great having experienced lots of turbulence during our flights. But the upside of that was the sun was not blazing, the air was cool and I enjoyed walking in the beach and swimming without being burned. Today was the only scorcher but I managed to climb to the top of Mt. Tapyas in Coron, Palawan which is really not that high, only 700 steps. But hey, it's an achievement for me, I conquered the heights and the scorching sun. I will have a lot of adventure posts later to share with you as soon I am back in my desk in Sydney. 

In the meantime, I am greeting you all a very Merry Christmas. May you have a great time celebrating Christmas with your families and friends. I have photos of the big Christmas trees, one from the Customs House in Sydney and the other from Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu, Philippines.

Warm greetings from summery Sydney, Australia.

Lace in Cream

It’s insanely warm now in the Southern Hemisphere having summer finally kicked in and took hold of the season. So when it comes to the clothing department, the shops have been flooded with lace, crochet, chiffon and light fabrics in dominantly white and cream colours. From the local brands Sportsgirl and Glassons to the International fashion houses like Zara and H&M, shoppers are frolicking to fill in their summer wardrobe. There are also nautical themes which maybe encouraging people to go to the beach and chill. Oh well, wherever you go and whatever you do, don’t forget to slip, slop and slap. That is, Slip on a shirt, Slop on the 30+ sunscreen, Slap on a hat. Wait there’s more…  Seek shade or shelter, Slide on some sunnies.  As Wiki defined, “Slip-Slop-Slap is the iconic and internationally recognised sun protection campaign prominent in Australia during the 1980s.” It is still now and that’s what I do not only on summer but the whole year through :)

Mesh It Up

One of the reasons why I like warm weather is that I can wear mesh clothing, the feel of the wind just gushing to the skin and keeping me cool. Or is it the way around? I like to wear perforated clothes on warm weather because it's keeping me cool and fresh. Either way, warm weather and mesh outfit work well together like ice cream and sprinkles or churros and chocolate dip. You don't have to but it's just so great together.
