Outfit: Beige ZARA tailored fit pants, INDUSTRIE desert boots and H&M oversize tee and grey jacket.

Hey guy's how are ya, hope everyone's doing well again. Welcome to the great outdoors where you'll find just about anything and everything wildlife and nature in the one photo. It's amazing how beautiful the scenery is here where air is fresh and the skies are clear as crystal. The roads are endless where you'll find speed limits going up to 100 KM/S and very few people around. The complete opposite to a very dense Manila population.

In Australia, we like to dress well in a way that tailors our lifestyle and particular interests. For myself as it was cold on this fine day, I really found the need to somewhat layer up, purposefully where I found that my H&M jacket that I picked up from the Philippines had become perfectly please for this terrain. I figured these pants and shoes combination would work well due to the outdoor setting and mixing beige with grey had only seemed natural to couple up. A white tee to separate the strong tones makes it all so more casual and easy to wear without getting too much attention, but more so subtle appreciation and ideas for others to embrace. What do you think?

Never thought that this opportunity would come where there'd be a chance to step foot inside the H&M Showroom. What an amazing experience it was to be able to set eyes on a new, refreshing view of Makati City from the 30th floor of the incredible Zuellig Building - one of Manila's very eye appealing commercial buildings of the Philippines.

Upon entering the showroom which was unbelievably clean and tidy, there stood Operations Manager and Marketing Director Dan Mejia & Nikki Verzo of H&M who gladly made the effort to show me around to showroom with a small tour of up and coming collections and further details of the materials and designs by H&M

For those unaware H&M stands for Hennes & Mauritz, a Swedish multinational retail company in fashion with an operating income of $22.168 Billion (2013) with a total number of 132,000 employees worldwide. Philippines now one of the 200 and more operating stores worldwide. 

Being a big fan of H&M, believe it or not, H&M would be one my most liked commercial clothing brands over any other menswear brand that I've come across. Their clothes would have to be one of the easiest fit ready-to-wear pieces where one could go to any store without having to worry about incorrect sizing or other miscellaneous bits and bobs.

It would be really nice to have a pair of these and make something of this with other outfits. 

That's Dan & Nikki who take care of the more complex aspect of work when it comes to work. They didn't want to be in any photos so I had to get this cheeky candid photo of them where I was able to catch them laughing. Hope they didn't mind!

Here's some the of the pieces picked from the clothing racks that looked really nice and comfy. Most materials range different from design. As you can like this thick sweater in the picture above, it gonna be really nice to wear this to any up and coming of the country trips, or even maybe suitable for a nice movie date. Very Kanye kind of style. 

There's that view from the Zuellig Building. Just upon entering there was a helicopter that flew across on the same level as the building that looked really awesome. Would've been so nice to capture a panning shot as it looked like something out a of a movie scene.

Get a load of the goods. SS Goods. An independent Filipino lifestyle wear, suitable for all seasons. In fact San Saison (French) stands for 'without season' representing a lifestyle brand made for any place, anytime.

As you can see I got the most of my outfit when I escaped out of town the other week to check out some new scenery. I really enjoy checking out the wildlife here in Australia, since there's mother natures touch everywhere around - after spending so much time in Manila, it has made me forget how beautiful the great outdoors really is. 

It's nice to see a brand that prides themselves, making garments and accessories with great attention to detail that a brand like this can provide functional essential garments to make any man look good at any situation. SS Goods reinterpret classics by adding subtle yet curious details to each piece.

Hey guy's I know it's been a while again since I've last updated. Hope everyone's been doing well. I'm currently in Australia back home at the moment. I've been here for the past 3 weeks enjoying a little rest and relaxation along with a fair bit of work to keep things busy.

I really enjoy coming back to Australia to visit and it always blows me away to see what's changed and who's changed. Friends getting deep into their careers, forward progress on construction and development and change of climate from hot to cold. It's always great to catch up with old friends I grew up with too. They always worry about me and what I get up to but they're also understanding with my life based in the Philippines.

It's always a struggle living overseas alone and trying to stay healthy and balanced, hence why I always prefer to go home every so often. If you realised how healthy the food is here, you'd think twice on your next meal. Unfortunately it's easy to succumb to the standard of eating (in my case Burger King, McDonald's and Shakey's) with so many different venues and cuisines readily available. In Australia, Nando's and Pizza Capers are two of my favorite take out/dine in venues that I personally eat from all the time (just a quick hint for newcomers on places to grab a quick bite). I'll find more time to continue with a city tour of Brisbane, the city I live in and take some photos of where's good.

It's been cold recently in Brisbane and since it's been quite the breeze, it's been perfect layer weather to try my pullouts from H&M. I gotta say I'm a huge fan of H&M - nothing can compare with that ratio of variety and quality. I love the jacket, it's such a good piece of clothing to own, I'm so happy I finally have jacket like one in that particular style. It's awesome. You probably can't see but it has clip on inner vest inside as an attachment for an extra layer of comfort. I guess there are my way you can wear this jacket and since it's got that faded green color, it's look can mostly go with any color such as navy blue, orange (if you want), burgundy, beige and yellow. 

I had to go with Aren's Sole Service boots. I wear them quite a lot and they're different among the pairs of shoes I own. I figured the colors matched the outfit so they can photograph well when it comes to details and yeah. Good job Aren Pe.
