TROPICAL






OUTFIT: BERMUDA SHORTS (P2,950), TROPICAL PRINT SHIRT (P2,950), LACE UP TWILL SNEAKERS (P2,450) - MR. A.A. SMITH

It's crazy how amazing this view as oppose to witnessing this from in real life. It seems as if I'm where on a studio production set, but honestly this was just taken by the deserted areas of Manila Bay.

Wow I gotta say that place is a world of it's own, especially the location where I was at the time. To think that this was only taken early in the morning, it honestly felt like I was in a scene from 28 weeks later or something haha because there was no people around at the time! Actually scary in a way if you've been worked up like me coming from the horrific traffic in Makati, but a refreshing view I must say. Well, as you can see summer is almost over, so why not indulge in a good ol' holiday outfit to keep the air flowing through my skin. haha. I love this outfit I gotta say. It's another H.E. Mango ensemble to add variety to my feature. If you like tropical short sleeve shirts, than you're gonna like this one! The material's really lightweight and breathable. You have to look out for these details as well because its small things like these that help you become less worried what you wear so you can tolerate the heat more.

Coming from Australia, we usually don't care about what we wear so much, but if you're not use to being stubborn with temperature, than of course it's going get on your nerves with what you wear. I recommend thin materials like this tropical print shirt so you can be more versatile throughout the day and of course, it's a really nice print.

DESERT HEAT









OUTFIT: CLASSIC-FIT BASILIA SUIT, SLIM-FIT TAILORED PATTERNED SHIRT, GEOMETRIC PATTERNED TIE BY H.E. MANGO & ZARA LACED-UP SHOES

It had been a while for me to come up with a write for this post because honestly when I saw the outcome of these photos I thought they were so intriguing with an interesting story to tell. As much as I'd love to wear suits, I don't get the chance to wear them often. I have to say this Basilia suit from Mango has been nothing but a tailored fit. It's not often that I get the chance to share with you a new out fit that fits perfectly but I do appreciate the fitting where I could only, it's brands like these where you can trust the sizing the moment you walk into the store and pick something off the rack.

I couldn't help but come with a concept like shooting somewhere remote because it's moments like these where article is more subjective than the location. It's always fun to change the scenery as well as a means to explore more and try something different for the viewers to see. Modeling isn't really a problem for when you wear a suit like this and really feel the materials that you are wearing, so I do recommend as an alternative to other suits available from other brands to try and see what they have in stock from H.E. Mango

A NIGHT OUT MANILA STYLE


Over the weekend in Manila we were grateful enough to experience night of delight with dining, deserts and delicacies, along with a handful of healthy options at the The High Street Gourmand Market held in Fort Bonifacio. The night entailed fine foods and treats with food stands ranging from healthy greens, all the way to savored native delicacies of the Philippines - Many of the foods which were a first for to try. I must say the presentation and mood was something out of the ordinary with a feeling of a casual-chic that made everything feel welcome to anyone who had passed by.

I really wanted to try everything and even as I review these photos now, I still feel the tremble in my stomach haha. Deep down Filipinos overall have always been known to be inner food-connoisseurs, especially when it comes to traditional foods and it's a great pleasure to be able to get in the habit of trying different foods as such to help broaden my taste buds.

Here are some of the photos I was able to quickly snap while I was checking everything out!
