While You Were Sleeping KDrama Shooting Locations!

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Sobrang minsan lang ako mapalakpak sa isang Kdrama, and I did this so many times while watching While You Were Sleeping. 👏 The plot is sooo good, yung pag bagsak palang ng dramatic background music sobrang perfect timing, plus backed with great actors--I can't help but put this drama on my top Kdrama favorites!

For this post, I am sharing to you my While You Were Sleeping shooting locations, but as a Kdrama tour itinerary. I think you can accomplish this in a day or two. I still have a lot on my Korea bucket list, and might follow this when I have the chance to go back again in Seoul soon! 

Where to go, where to eat, and what to do???

Let's follow Jung Jae-chan (Lee Jong Suk) and Nam Hong-joo (Suzy Bae)'s journey!

1000 Pesos Makeup Challenge!

Monday, September 24, 2018

Last weekend, I decided to book for a staycation in QC area because of my tight schedule. We celebrated a friend's last few weeks as a single lady last Saturday night at around Ortigas, and early morning of Sunday I have a shampoo bar making class with my sister in Tomas Morato and a fashion event in Trinoma. All my life I live in the south, but the past weeks my commuting experience was the worst! I think spending a few bucks for a comfortable weekend was worth it!

Anyway, I decided to post my Php 1000 makeup challenge since I did packed my lightest and most affordable makeup for a weekend away from home. I've been on the lookout for affordable makeup after getting requests whenever I post anything beauty related on my blog or Instagram... so here it is!

PRAGUE: Inside A Dark Fairytale Book

Thursday, September 20, 2018

We left Berlin from where we entered it. We took a 4-hour train going to the country of Czech in their city called Prague (aka Praha). Inside the train, Ate and I were in front of a couple seemingly nursing a hangover, their legs inconsiderably stretched up to our space. They also placed all their humongous backpacker bags on the floor in front of us instead of putting them on top along with the other passengers' bags so we have more space. I plugged my earphones and endured the ride.

We arrived in Prague at about past lunch time, and compared to our first two destinations, looking for our accommodation is a bit swifter thank God. I pulled my carryon through cobblestone streets, quaint medieval houses as backdrop. It was an overcast day (my kind of weather although it looks bad on photographs) that I was in such a good mood in no time!

My Favorite Klook Travel Bookings + Are You Ready For A Different Kind Of Travel Fair!?

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

I guess it's true. Gone are the days when you have to book a full-on tour guide service when traveling. Anyway, I have never been a fan of following certain time frames, visiting places because of a set schedule (even ones I am not interested in), and go around with groups of other tourists.

These days, travellers enjoy planning everything on their own. I actually learned to love pre-travel activities like booking, researching, and creating itineraries. I can be flexible with my travel plans, but I also have to make sure that I am ready for a trip para sulit since it's not cheap to travel!

Thinking about it now, my main activity involves lots of brain churning. 

I am a writer, and I have been writing for over a decade. I started with feature articles for different publications including Smart Parenting, Candymag, and Current (Meralco's company publication). My course in college is journalism. Now I write solely for my blog, and have since been used to writing with my own voice. So when it comes to writer's block, I think I've been through it so much that I want to talk about it in this post.

Lessons from Kdrama My ID Is Gangnam Beauty

Monday, September 17, 2018

I just finished watching the final episode of the latest JTBC Kdrama My ID is Gangnam Beauty starring Im Soo-hyang (Kang Mi Rae) and Astro's Cha Eun-woo (Do Kyung Suk).

The drama's plot is about a girl who went through full face plastic surgery before entering college, after getting bullied for not fitting society's standards of beauty during her whole childhood. Will this change her life? 

I am sure a lot were able to connect to these characters in one point of their lives. From growing up feeling they are not enough, from caring too much for what others will think, and seeing the things beyond what the eyes can see... Here are some of the lessons I picked up from one of -- if not -- the BEST kdrama of 2018! 

(Spoiler Alert!! Do not go beyond this if you are not yet done with the series!!!)

Berlin Travel Blog: Snippets of this Cool City in Germany

Friday, September 14, 2018

People use the adjective COOL for Sweden, but I have no other better words to describe this city in Germany called Berlin.

Stickers are plastered all over their walls and street sign poles that my Ate had to ask our tour guide where she can buy some as souvenir (haha, they're free and used as advertisements by brands!!).

It is dirty, it is lively, and it has so much (his)story up their sleeves.

Sleeper Train To Berlin

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

As most people say about life: The journey is the destination. 

Or a huge chunk of life, at least. Imagine just eyeing your great goal and then forgetting everything else happening at that moment. I now realize that this also applies when traveling. We often just see photos or videos of travellers once they reached that coveted Instagram-worthy tourist spot, but how often does one enjoy and write (or vlog) about how they slept in airports, or how they still made sure to do their nightly skincare in a small cubicle toilet of a sleeper train, or went claustrophobic seating on a tiny reclinable chair of a night bus? 

When I look back to these in-transit travel moments, I cannot imagine how I survived with just the bare minimum!

SOMEWHERE IN STOCKHOLM: Expensive Food, Modern and Medieval, Etcetera.

Friday, September 07, 2018

I miss going to an unfamiliar place. The past months I've been traveling to countries I've already been to, and although it's a different city or season, you can't take away the sense of fulfilment or should I say "adventure" when you go to a totally different continent, with a different language, currency, culture, and timezone!

BTS of My Mimi Shop Makeover Experience! (More Photos, Conversations, Etc.)

Monday, September 03, 2018

Let me take you back to the night before the shoot day.

I was keeping everything to myself. I tried so hard not to post too much information online partly because we might not be allowed to post yet, and also partly because I still can't believe this will actually happen to me. And if in case it won't push through, at least hindi ako mapapa hiya haha!
