Keep the Faith

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake had shaken the Philippines, particularly Visayas last October, then super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) wreak havoc a month after. Man, those were really the most terrifying moments in my life. I don't want to pour all of the deets here because it's done and over now, and I'm more than happy 'coz I know the survivors are now moving on and slowly getting up from that tragedy. The stuff I love most about us Filipinos, smiling and fighting after every peril. That's the Filipino spirit!

So I opted to wear this top while roaming the streets of Kuala Lumpur, to remind myself and every Filipino to keep the faith.

Restoran Muar | Where To Dine in Kuala Lumpur

What better thing to do after stepping on a country for the first time than to venture on their cuisine first? Agree, yes? :)

After we landed in Kuala Lumpur, our itinerary led us straight to Restoran Muar at Tengkat Tong Shin for lunch, a place for the best home-cooked Malaysian cuisine right in the heart of KL. And since it's my first time in Malaysia, I was very excited to try their food. Restoran Muar is located just behind Jalan Alor, the famous spot when it comes to street foods.

Let's get started and have you salivating shall we?

This one's their version of Crispy Fried Egg (7RM). I'm really amazed by how they cooked it. I mean look at that, it doesn't only looks good but tastes good as well. Yum!

Putrajaya, Malaysia

Our itinerary in Kuala Lumpur last December was so great. Everything has been smoothly prepared by of course, Air Asia Zest and Tourism Malaysia (thank you guys!). After arriving at the airport, we went straight to Restoran Muar for lunch (will blog about it soon! ), and then we checked into Hotel Istana, which is in the heart of the city and were told to rest and prepare for the smart-casual dinner with Tourism Malaysia in Putrajaya Shangri-la. 

Top from July, skirt from Maze, shoes from So Fab
We stopped at Putra Square for a quick photo op and I was secretly smiling inside the bus thinking that the tour guide has a perfect taste for a an awesome spot for an OOTN, haha.

Relief Operation For The Victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda

After the three successful relief operations for the victims of the earthquake in Bohol, once again, we are appealing to your kind hearts. 

Inter-mountaineering Society is accepting donations for the victims of super typhoon Yolanda in Northern Cebu, specifically our fellowmen in Bantayan Island where Yolanda had its 4th landfall. 

90% of the household in Bantayan Island is badly damaged. All houses made of light materials are wiped out while the concrete houses are partially damaged.

Dumaguete - 2 Story Kitchen

While in Dumaguete last summer, we've been to a lot of food trips and found this hip Korean cafe (former cafe noriter) just a block away from Sans Rival. The foods are great and the prices are reasonable.

Exploring Apo Island

Before summer came in, my family and I planned a trip to Dumaguete, our hometown, and to Siquijor, where  my mother's father is from,  and created a 5-day itinerary (that has been extended). We've gone to Dumgauete for a lot of times already but we never had the chance to explore Apo Island in Dauin. Yes, the incredible Apo island, because according to my mom and my titas, the island is shark infested and is not safe to go because the waves are blahblah and blahblah. But now that we're grown ups and are adrenaline junkies (chos), our plans can't be disrupted. Except if they won't give us some moolah. Hehehe. A day trip to Apo island? Yesser!
