The Hunt

There comes a point in your life when you start thinking about the future.
A future where there is depth in all aspects of your life.

So for this post, aside from my usual life peg, 
get to know some of my personal views in life.

On marriage. 
More often than not, people tie the knot for the wrong reasons.
Some marry for companionship while others marry for power and fame.
Whatever the reason may be, one's happiness is at stake.

At the end of the day, our choices do define us.
Let's hope and pray that we find a person who will 
pursue us every single day, even after marriage,
because that is the kind of love worth sharing.

On Career Growth.
We have to continuously find purpose for what we do.
Money can be one thing, but a driven life is another.

Most of the time it's the struggle which makes us want to give up but this
is actually the exact same thing that molds us into becoming a better person.

With the right support system and a positive outlook, 
we learn new things about ourselves and the world we live in.

Hope you learned a thing or two from me.
Our lives may be far from perfect,
but each day is a chance to prove our worth.

Why not start recreating yourself by revamping your look?
I don't know about you, but dressing well gives me more confidence.
Try out different styles too look fun and fearless.

A casual yet sophisticated ensemble like so is one of my recommendations.
A stylish top combined with acid wash jeans and pumps would do the trick :)

The Weekender

 Hello readers! As we start another week, I'm bringing you some good vibes with 
today's fashion post plus a special feature of a dining place for food enthusiasts.

For a casual weekend look, 
start by choosing a dress with interesting cuts and a neutral color like so.

Then pair it with your favorite heels and sunnies to complete the ensemble.
And voila, you have created a simple yet sophisticated look.

As promised, here's a restaurant that you should try out.

TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie opened last October 2014 in SM Megamall
and up until now, mall goers have been flocking to this place,
with most days still being fully-booked.

I'll let the photos do the talking.

US Premium Beef Rib Curry

Specialty Noodle Soup Combos

Pan-fried Boneless Chicken in Teriyaki Sauce

Fish Fillet with Pumpkin and Crabstick in Creamy Sauce

Crispy Barbecued Pork Snow Buns

If you're a food-lover like me, then this place is a must try for your taste-buds.
Experience Hong Kong in Manila. 

Amongst all the food on my table, I personally love the Beef Rib Curry,
the Pan-fried Boneless Chicken and of course the Pork Buns! 
It took about 45 minutes for the snow buns to come out but it was worth the wait :)

Love lots and until the next post,

Secret Garden

Today's peg is Victorian-inspired with a solid lace bodice.
I gave my ensemble a fresh look by pairing it 
with some chic sunnies and floral pumps.

The Victorian period is one of my favorite eras as it is a vision of
grace and elegance. Giving it a more modern take, 
I made sure that my look is of ease and comfort.

For this look, I'm wearing one of my favorite brands, Forever21.
Forever21 is my go-to brand for stylish yet affordable fashion wear.

I love their wide selection of fashion pieces; 
I can be fun, flirty and feminine at one time & chic, mysterious and edgy at another.

Remember readers, fashion is all about style and personality.
You don't have to follow what's on-trend to look good.

Take for example the ensemble I'm wearing, you can rock it in more ways.
You can dress it up with some white sneakers for a punk or laidback look,
or even pair it with Balmain lace-up boots for a more sultry vibe. 

Whichever getup gives you the most confidence, 
then that's when you're most beautiful :)
