Western Work Day

For most of us in the Philippines, we might have came across this place at least once. For some who doesn't have any idea of where this is, it's up to you to find it. The working population of our capital city is rapidly growing with the numerous companies sprouting everywhere. In my two years here in Manila, I've noticed that people normally would kick in some style for their work clothes. A few years from now, I'll be part of the working population therefore I decided to experiment on something that would make me look like I am working at my own SOHO or something. I didn't choose to wear a corporate attire because being your own boss is so much better.  Back to my title, taking a stroll in these streets remind me of the western world. I like the fact that they didn't copy something out of a European building blueprint but instead formulated something that took its inspiration from the western roots.   21MEN readers, Thrifted button-d

Waters of October

Weekends are the most anticipated part of the whole week. This weekend however, wasn't just like any other weekends that I've had. If I were to sum up everything, I'd say it was the great escape. It's becoming a weekly thing that my friends and I get out of Manila. This one has to be the farthest one yet. We headed down to Batangas and it took us 4 hours to reach our point of interest.  The night before we left, We had been catching up with other friends at Barcino for some wine, slept for a few hours to get the wine out of our system and headed straight to Batangas early dawn.   For their half day rate, they offer a total of 1200PHP/head inclusive of the board, helmet, 4 hour wake park usage and access to the facilities of their resort.   The ski park had two sections, one for the beginners and one for the pros.   It was our first time to try this sport, but really got to learn it well. We'll be going back soon.


LET THERE BE EUROPE.                                                                                                                                                                            If you might be thinking where I was for the past few days, I can’t summarize it into one post.  It’s quite often that my friends and I grab dinner followed by overflowing drinks that keeps us until sunrise. Last saturday was something new. The most popular road trip destination if you live in the south would always be Tagaytay, and that’s exactly where we went. I’ve had a post about Tagaytay before but this one’s entirely different. We went up to a place called Crosswinds. The whole property looked like it was shipped right from Europe. We went on a hike up here and another place that overlooked the Taal Lake, but because it was raining,the fog had covered up the whole view. When I revived my blog last July, I admit that I was pressured to post outfit shots, but I figured out that
