北京奥运村 Beijing Olympic Village, approaching the Bird’s Nest:
the Great Wall
These are pictures from my Beijing Trip last end of April/start of May: On our fourth day in Beijing, we booked a trip up to the Mutianyu (慕田峪) section of the Great Wall of China. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the Great Wall for years, but when I finally got there, I was too tired and hot to appreciate it. I was only able to scale around 6 towers, and then I had to head back to the...
Girls Night Out : the Pre-Party "Shoot"
Hello, World! Meet my lovely friends! (These are all backlogged photos from our epic May 6 Girls’ Night Out at Republiq :) We had a super impromptu photo shoot in my mess of a room that night - Ravishing brainiac Mayen and musical prodigy Den: I tried to shoot from this angle to take the tornado-stricken bed out of the picture, literally, but it was too dark: so they had to...
Anonymous asked: We had a great time tonight at Distillery! Monday nites are super fun, great vibe, and way low key. I'll probably be back tomorrow night, cause it was that cool/chill. Thanks! - Phil

Jesi Mendez Salon Review - If you want a haircut...
Was this me 6 years ago? you ask. No, this was me after I had a “trim” from Jesi Mendez Salon a few hours ago. If you want a haircut from people who don’t bother listening to you when you tell them how you want your hair styled, then go to this salon. I’m usually really fussy about where I get my hair done, but a while ago, after having my underarms lasered at Park...
Friday the 13th
what I’m wearing tonight :) thank God I still fit into this dress after a super big company dinner in which I had two whole servings of everything on the buffet table (including lechon, tacos, chicken, veggies, soda…). Win! haha.
In front of Malberry Business Hotel (yes, it’s spelled Malberry Suites in Cagayan de Oro City) last April: above: with my grandfather behind me. I look so exotic. I think. haha. Just posting random pictures on a Friday night - it’s Friday the 13th, and I’m heading to Republiq to watch Jay Sean with Mayen later. At first it was supposed to be a Kid Cudi performance, but then...
to and from Beijing Olympic Village and the Summer Palace :) My officemates have been teasing me for having these extremely large spectacles on my face (Harry Potter has become my nickname whenever I’d wear them), so I finally ordered contact lenses to replace the ones I lost a few months back. I only have 1 other pair of working eyeglasses aside from these huge ones since I broke...
waiting for the shuttle after watching the Shaolin Kung Fu show :) zero make-up, because my eyes were just way too tired :\ I think it’s the first time I’ve ever really worn thigh highs out. One of the reasons why I haven’t done so (despite the fact that I own more than 3 pairs of them) is because they keep sliding down my legs, which can get extremely annoying,...
Temple of Heaven
my favorite site in the Beijing city proper - Temple of Heaven
Anonymous asked: Hey, I've really enjoyed your blog, thanks for sharing. I do have a question, I'm a westerner, and have spent some time back and forth between the States and Manila. I usually stay around Makati, but would love for another cool trendy place to hang out and listen to live music, away from the creepy old men. Any thoughts/recommendations? I am a man, just not interested in getting pawed at...
64: A Fashion Gala; A Designer to Watch out for
(This is a super backlogged post, but still worth the wait): Last April 12, I went to “64: A Fashion Gala.” It was the unveiling of the collections of the DLS-CSB Fashion Design & Merchandising students batch of 2011. The event was held at the A.Venue Hall, Makati City. Michelle, my friend from way back, invited me to watch her set. After we graduated from High School, we both...
The Real Truth behind the Supposed Truth about the...
by Dustin Celestino I used to support the RH Bill. I no longer do. By the end of this document, neither would you. I have not supported the RH Bill since I attended a lecture in Megamall about the truth behind it. That lecture truly enlightened me. My only hope is that this holy light of enlightenment passes through your monitor screen, into your optical nerves, and into your heart so it can...
Tumblr is not blocked in the People's Republic of...
Hooray! I just have to say that Beijing is absolutely amazing. Chinese food anywhere else just cannot say anything to the food here; and seriously, whoever still believes that the best duck can be found in Hong Kong has probably never tried the real thing. Don’t like Peking duck? I never did either, until now. The best kind is served with skin separate from the meat (so it’s deep...
Haven’t been able to post anything for a while now from Beijing because of this firewall; testing if Tumblr will work where facebook and twitter have failed
