So I have been silent for quite some time now. I have just experienced a major change in my life, quitting my job and signing to my dream one! Still in the same field, asset management.

As I had two weeks free between the two jobs, I spontaneously decided to go back home: the Philippines! And I surprised my mom, who relocated to Romblon a few months ago. She was almost shocked to see me! But I spent a good week with her relaxing, more posts will come on that.

The second week, I stayed in Makati and saw family and friends. I, of course, also shopped and had a massage.

On the Thursday, I met up with my two cousins in Serendra, which is located at the Fort, Bonifacio Global City.

We decided to meet at Chelsea Grand Café and I started  by ordering my favourite: Mango and Passion smoothie!



I continued with their creamy carbonara.


And we ended up sharing the dessert, Brownie’s S’mores. Such a good dessert! I had never tried S’mores before, it is so delicious!



As it was sunny, we shot outdoors afterwards. It was after I had all the food, so I may look more ‘bloated’ than usual.


Love the statement necklace


Miu Miu look-alike bag

I’m wearing a 100% Filipino outfit, yes, only local brands. I’m proud to support designers from my country.

As it was during day time, I didn’t wear heels, but these can be worn to complement the outfit for a night out.

If you liked the look, please hype it at Lookbook.

Also, the blog is now registered under, and more enhancements are to come!
