Food: Crisostomo Restaurant

Earlier this year when I went back home in Manila to celebrate my birthday with family, we stayed in Remington Hotel located in Resorts World Manila. We had a good dinner in the all-Pinoy food restaurant known as Crisostomo Restaurant. It serves authentic Filipino cuisine with a sophisticated twist. Right from the airport we headed down here, missing all the local foods my tastebud were craving food. My family ended finishing all the taseteful dishes that are both traditionally filling and modernly mouthwatering.

We ordered Bulalo with it's flavourful meaty broth peerfect with rice. You can't afford not to taste their  Mango salad with fresh onions and tomatoes. Why not try their Bagoong (shrimp paste) rice just simply perfect on its own without any viand needed. We also ordered Sizzling tofu and guess what, they also serve Sizzling Balut, that was my first time and it never failed me at all. For their refreshing drinks, you can go for Green mango shake and I tell you, its worth it!

It was a full loading dinner and make sure you still have enough space for desserts as they also offer varities of sinful local desserts and sweets like Sans Rival and the famous Pinoy Halo-Halo. The next time you'll crave for pinoy food, Crisostomo Restaurant is the answer to it all!

Fashion: Sunday Stop

Sunday is my ultimate fueling day of the week. I usually do anything I want every Sunday before starting a brand new week ahead. What about taking OOTD post for my fashion blog? Yes, I always do this before with my SLR and tripod with me but nowadays due to my hectic lifestyle, I usually ask random friends to take photos of me using my iPhone then edit via Snapseed  and the photo quality outcome is still superb like this.

I'm wearing this white floral shirt from Bench since summer is officially on. Recently, I'm overusing this Factorie black jeans as it's so easy to pair with any top plus the best fitting of this jeans on me. I'm using all brown color clutch bag, Fossil watch, Coach leather bracelet and leather Sperry shoes to complete this look. Watch out for more fashion post only here on my blog. Thanks for reading guys!

Food: 2AM Dessert Bar

Given the chance to treat yourself something, and if ever you're craving for "fine dining" desserts I have a place to recommend guys! Located along the street of Holland Village, 2AM Dessert Bar which opened again in 2007 is the best place for late night dessert treat. 

I love their interiors that looks so sophiticated and high class ambience but still comfortable to dine in. You can select whether you want to sit on the glass window area with tables or can even have a spot near the bar to watch how your dessert is being done. 

We ordered a bottle of wine Moscato D'Asti while browsing on the best dessert on the menu to try. The menu is categorized under Classic or Contemporary Dessert. Special part of it was the add on menu options like Dessert Degustation, Ice Cream, Sweet Waffle and Savoury Dessert. Life gets harder when it comes to choosing the best one ;)

Fashion: Winter Wonderland

This look turned out to be my first winter OOTD on my first day in Seoul. We had so much in the outdoor crazy rides of Lotte World, one of the most visited amusement park. Although this outfit post looked winter-ready, well I was still freezing with the -2 degrees temperature of Seoul. 

I was wearing a red winter sporty jacket and an inside turtle neck top both from Uniqlo. I think Uniqlo will always provide some of the most fashionable winter clothes in Singapore. I used my slim cut denim jeans from Folded & Hung and paired it with my blue Nike training shoes from Royal Sporting House. To complete up my look, I scored my look by adding Billabong snap back and classic Ray-ban shades. By adding gray scarf to add accent to my look and using Givenchy classic black leather Pandora bag, this look was turned into a high-end sophisticated style where in fact it's all basic pieces combined to complete this winter look, my first experimental winter OOTD so far.

Tavel: Krabi Hot Spring & Tiger Cave

This is my last post for my Krabi travel diary. As what they say, save the best for last. If you're thinking that Thailand is just famous for their undeniably captivating beaches, we'll you don't experience what Krabi can offer to all the tourist out there. This picturesque beauty comes in abundance of nature and hidden beauty secrets.

One of the best tourist spot to visit here will be the Krabi Hot Spring, yes they do have hot speing here too. What about dipping your body into naturally high water temp coming from underwater making it a natural sauna kind of mood. This place is considered to be one of the top tourist attraction here that you shouldn't miss.

You moght as well try the Tiger Cave for some spiritual and physical travel challenge. I was not able to reach the cave located on top of the mountain cliffs as I'm not physically prepared for it. It will take you hundreds of steps to reach it peak so you better be dressed accordingly. Krabi was such an amazing place to unwind if you're looking for vacation spot aside from Phuket and Bangkok.
