The Ruins in Talisay City

The Ruins in Talisay City was a mansion of Lacson family built in early 1920's in memory of  Maria Braga's untimely death. Maria Braga is Don Mariano Lacson's wife, she's a beautiful young Portuguese from Macau, but due to sudden twist of fate, Maria slipped in the bathroom when she was pregnant with their 10th child, causing her to bleed and die. During the second World War, the local guerillas burned this place to prevent the Japanese from occupying and making this as their headquarter. Because of the A-grade concrete and oversized steel bars as foundations of this home, it made some sizeable portion of the mansion possible to survive in succeeding generations.

Campuestohan Highland Resort

 We went back to my hometown last Friday to celebrate my Aunts birthday and also to meet my relatives living in Bacolod and San Carlos. Bacolod is a city on the northwest coast of Negros Island in the Philippines. Did you ever wonder why it's called the "City of Smiles"? Well, it is notable for its MassKara Festival held every 3rd week of October. It is also known to be a friendly city that's why it's called the City of Smiles.

Review: Etude House Total Age Repair Wrinkle Reduce Royal BB Cream

I am an avid fan of Blemish Balm Cream or commonly known as BB Cream. When I went to the mall last Friday to buy one, unfortunately my favorite Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit is sold out. It has been sold out for months already and I was not happy about it. I asked if they will restock it soon, they said yes but they can't tell when. Instead of waiting, I asked and looked for an alternative BB Cream similar to the cotton fit that I've been using regularly.

Review: L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Pro-Matte Foundation and True Match Concealer

I can't be more excited to share my reviews about one of my newest makeup favorites, two of them are L'Oreal's Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation and True Match Concealer. I am acidic and the foundations and concealers that I normally use for my face should always be atleast one shade lighter than my natural skin tone, because if not, my face will look darker after an hour and that doesn't please me at all!

El Nido Island Tour + Picnic Lunch

Today, I'm sharing the famous beaches and lagoons of El Nido Palawan, Philippines. We had a chance to enjoy the Palawan paradise without any hustle. The tour was amazing and it was like a dream come true. It was my first time in El Nido and I know that I have to be 100% prepared to try whatever this beautiful paradise can offer.  I've heard and read a lot of positive reviews about their beaches/lagoons and why it was ranked #1 of the Top Islands of the World 2017 according to Travel and Leisure. When I heard about this news, I was like "WOW, I couldn't agree more!". I feel so grateful to live in this country (Philippines) and I can't wait to share our experience, too.
