A Beautiful Escape

Just a few weeks ago, one of my blog readers messaged me saying that she finds my blog as a "happy distraction". She felt that with the places I explore, it's as if she herself has been there. Readers like her are my kind of inspiration , that is why despite my busy schedule, I always find time to go back to my first love, and that is blogging about fashion, travel and lifestyle.

So here's another travel escapade I'd like you to explore with me.
Welcome to Pico de Loro

If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, 
then this beach resort can be your safe haven.

With more or less 1.5 hours drive from Manila, 
my family and I stayed in Pico Sands Hotel.


We stayed in a Premier Lagoon View Room.
Thank you Ms. Ciara Role for the kind accommodation.

Since we arrived lunchtime, then what better way to chill
than dine in a Mediterranean setup courtesy of Pico Bar.

Just a snippet of what we ate, this is just 1/3 of it :)

Now that our tummies are happy, 
it's time to hit the beach.

I'm wearing a halter maxi dress by ROMWE.
I love how calming the color of the dress is.
It's as if I belong to this island. (just kidding)
I'm no beach babe, just taking a break from all the stress.

A view like this is simply breathtaking <3

And I can't help but pose for selfies.
Wearing my Melissa slippers <3

If you prefer some indoor activities instead,
then the clubhouse has various amenities that you can avail of.

And of course, don't miss out on the swimming pools.
If you have some kids, then this can be your option.

Or enjoy the infinity pool.

Perhaps  you can also try kayaking, paddle-boarding or
even a pony ride for your outdoor activities.

This is where we had our sumptuous dinner 

Pico de Loro is located in Hamilo Coast, Nasugbu Batangas

I'm glad I was able to spend it with my family.

Stay tuned for more fashion and travel posts this coming 2017 <3

Here's part two of my travel diary to Korea. Took awhile to blog about this because of my crazy schedule, but since people are asking what else they can do aside from exploring Nami Island, then here's a little comeback.

First Stop: Gyeongbok Palace

If you're into history and architecture, then you'll surely enjoy strolling around the palace's spacious grounds while appreciating Korea's many court customs.

Just look at how beautiful and intricate the details are. 

If you got tired from all the walking, then a little stopover should do the trick.

Second Stop: FOOD
what Korea is all about: spices and yes, Kimchi

How about some streetfood for the young at heart?
Checkout this Egg Buns

Perhaps, some barbeque for meat lovers

Also do keep warm with some Chicken Ginseng Soup---a must try

Looking for some Authentic Galbi Jim? 
Go to Seochomyeonok and there you'll find
 what your stomach is craving for: mouthwatering ribs

I can go on forever sharing with you all the food we ate in Korea,
but I should stop now, else it can make you incredibly hungry.
Let's just settle for some dessert before I share with you more scenic places.

A must try dessert is Bingsu--- Korea's version of the famous halo-halo

 Now that you're properly energized,
on to our third stop: Petite France

Visiting the little prince

and our knight in shining armour...
 someday our prince will come

But I must say this Little Prince totally slayed it.

Still hyped up? 
Let's proceed to our fourth stop: Bukchon Hanok Village

Immerse yourself in the northern village and get to see hundreds of traditional houses. Yes it may be a little crowded as it is also a tourist spot :)

If you want to blend in with the locals, then why not 
take the metro or freely explore Seoul as your fifth stop

Ain't they cute :)

Perhaps a walk in the park 

and some goofing around would do the trick

For our sixth stop, we went to SKYFARM located in Yeouido
I personally recommend that you pay this place a visit.

Talk about a breathtaking view as beautiful as this. 
Feel on top of the world, thanks to this posh restaurant.

And the food as well as presentation was superb.

There's so much to do and see in Korea, so before calling it a home sweet home, do make sure that you get to wear some Hanbok or one of their traditional dresses.

I have been transformed to a gisaeng , a female entertainer
Sweet Dreams!

All the best <3
