UAE | Dubai – A Hazy Morning And An Astonishing Skyline View

It was around 7 in the morning Wednesday this week when a mysterious fog covered the entire city of Dubai. I was heading to the office through a metro ride when I noticed a weird haze wrapping around the streets and buildings. At first I didn’t know whether I should be alarmed or not by such strange weather condition but people seemed relax about what’s going on. So maybe it was just a normal thing during winter here in Dubai. But since it was my first time to witness such misty atmosphere, I was amused and excited to capture the moment.

A birthday blog for my Ate Recca!

Me and my sister, Christy Recca Calderon.

To my sister who is selfless, humble and compassionate, happiest birthday to you! I wish you all the happiness and success you deserve. I want to thank you for making me feel that when everything else fails, I have my sister to lean on. Your unconditional love and undying support have always helped me to push forward with my dreams and not to give up even when things go wrong. You’re simply the best sister in the world that I could have wished for.

First blog for 2016

First of all, I am sorry if I have been gone for a long while. I haven’t posted anything in this blog for few months. There were just a lot of things happened in my life and one of which is I am now living in Dubai, UAE. It has been a long-term plan of mine to experience living abroad and learning new culture. Now that I finally made such move, I have to say it’s not that easy at all. Things are really different here but it’s worth it.

How I spent ₱350 at Maginhawa Street?

Oh dear, I savored the long weekend last week through a pleasurable food adventure. I and my best friend went to Maginhawa Street in Quezon City where restaurants are rumored to offer some exquisite and astonishing dishes. With only a budget of ₱350 each, we had a chock-full of gastronomic experience.

Japan | Shibuya Crossing (Tokyo)

Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo

I can finally say “Oh my gosh, I’m in Tokyo!” - The place known for being the safest major city in the world and rumored as the most expensive metropolitan. I’ve heard this place since my childhood years and I’ve seen it featured in some great movies like Lost in Transition and Resident Evil. So I’m really ecstatic and overwhelmed to actually set my foot in a city so stunning like Tokyo.

Is it really easy to apply for a Japan Visa?

I got my Japan Visa approved in 7 days but I have to say the preparation was not that easy. Apart from the basic requirements I submitted, the Embassy of Japan still asked for more documents. I thought I had no more chance but luckily, they granted me a temporary pass for 15 days valid for 3 months. Read more to know how I did it.

Flowery Summer

In the heat of summer, floral tops are absolutely the perfect get up. The vibrancy and saturating colors of flowers represent beauty and pure happiness. And though some may find its pattern too girly and flamboyant, I'd say summer should be colorful and lively! :-)

Philippines | Coral Blue Oriental Beach Villas, Bantayan Island

We found a beach resort in Northern Cebu where exclusivity, comfort and style are put together to give us a completely beautiful summer experience. Just located at Talisay, Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island, Cebu is a beautiful resort made of classic bamboos and local rustic materials. Yes, I'm talking about the Coral Blue Oriental Beach Villas & Suites.

Philippines | La Union

The month of May is definitely special not only because it’s my birthday but also I got to spend summer at the beach with people who are so dear to me. Here are few of my favorite GoPro shots taken at La Union few days ago. We had so much F-U-N. :-)

Turning 26 at La Union

Birthday for me is the best time to relax and look back at the memories before moving to a new chapter of one’s life. Thus, I prefer to travel during my birthday than celebrate it over a party at some fancy restaurants. So this year I decided to celebrate my special day at San Juan, La Union because it has one of the most beautiful sunset views by the beach in Northern Luzon. And since it’s not surfing season, the place was not that crowded making it more a relaxing and peaceful place to enjoy. Yes, I had a quiet but still happy birthday. :-)

On The Bright Side

Last Friday was definitely one the brightest days this summer in Cebu. Hence, my friends and I went for an uphill adventure at the Temple of Leah not only to witness this European inspired temple but also to take advantage of the location for a portrait photo shoot. I brought with me my EF 50 MM lens hoping we can achieve a decent focus range pictures. Take a look. :-)
