Empty Streets of Hong Kong

Posted by on Nov 30, 2010 in Featured, Music, Personal, Travel

I was walking around the residential streets of Hong Kong last Thursday late at night.  It’s usually my thing.  I love walking around a new place, be curious, observe people and the streets and try to submerge myself into their culture.  I just appreciate the cool breeze in Hong Kong around winter time.  Our hotel stands a few meters away from the Harbor, bringing cooler chills.  For the...

It’s pretty...

Ngong Ping 360 and Avenue of the Stars

Posted by on Nov 25, 2010 in Art & Photography, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

It was my first time riding the cable car going to Ngong Ping 360 village and the price of $219 for the crystal cable car (glass bottom) with 2 themed attractions (monkey story and Buddha story) was all worth it.  You get to ride the cable car for 25 minutes and you will pass by the harbor bay, the mountains, have a great view of the big buddha and the Hong Kong International Airport. After...

Day 2 in Hong Kong and we woke up late 😛 we roamed around central, tried out some awesome restaurants in Wellington street, shopped at H&M and went to Victoria Peak via the Peak Tram.  I swear, I could never get used to the 45 degree slope upwards and downwards (that’s what she said).  I still get scared with the height:P Won’t go to details, will just update this post with...

Okay,  I really don’t know where to start :P  I love Hong Kong – the food, the buses and trains, the skyscrapers and the hills… there is much to love here!  I went here last year at around May or June.  It was so humid at that time.  I heard that it starts to get cold around December and so I booked last week of November (coz I couldn’t find cheap flights to Hong...

It’s the time of the year when every journal junkie is in search for the best planner they could ever have for the new year.  Choosing the right planner for you is crucial.  This, by itself motivates you to write more and to look at your progress more often.  It’s based on experience, if the journal is lovely, I write more and I stare at my handwriting all the time.  Call it vain, but...

Posted by on Nov 16, 2010 in Featured, Philippines, Pilipinas, Travel

Last night, I attended DOT’s launch of the Philippines’ new brand.  It sparked debates here and there, people not liking it generally.  And while most people are already pointing out what they don’t like about the new brand, let’s balance it out by enumerating the things I like about our new brand. I love the fun and playful logo!  It is very catchy and it drives attention to...

Why Sebastian Vettel Won the 2010 F1 Drivers World Championship

Posted by on Nov 15, 2010 in Celebrities, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Formula 1, Sports

First of all, I am a big fan of Fernando Alonso, and I Lewis Hamilton is the drive a least like.  This year though, I have been noticing Sebastian Vettel.  He was quiet and people were not really eyeing on him to be the champion this year to be honest.  Their eyes were on Mark Webber and Alonso… Actually they were hoping for Lewis Hamilton too get the championship title again but I don’t...

Nail-a-holics at SM Megamall

Posted by on Nov 13, 2010 in Beauty, Health, Uncategorized

I usually do my nails by myself because I simply just don’t want other people cleaning it.  I am so scared of the word “ingrown” since I was a kid because I hear my mom and aunts complain about it a lot.  They advice me never to have my nails done by anyone else, or at least, not to have the insides of my nails being taken out.  Okay, I know that was TMI   Sometimes though, I fail to...

Nike Cross Training Shoes: Fly Zoom Quick Sister

Posted by on Nov 13, 2010 in Run, Sports

Believe it or not, I lost my running shoes.  I am not sure where I misplaced it.  I must have thrown it to the garbage bin because when I go to the gym, I wrap it in plastic.  I must have thought it was trash and threw it away @_@.  Anyway, it almost hindered me from achieving my goal – to finally get a gym membership.  I mean, how can you go to the gym without shoes? Vince and I went to...

It...

Sometimes, I just randomly check my feedjit stats just to see where the people that land on my blog come from.  I was surprised at what I saw…   Someone was searching for the word “hannah” online and it landed on my site.   Then I checked Google Canada and found out that when you search for “Hannah” my blog comes out on the first page of the SERPS XD   Of course,...

Online Shopping for Whooga Ugg Boots

Posted by on Nov 4, 2010 in Fashion, Featured, Shoes, Travel

Living in a tropical island like the Philippines, everyday fashion style is limited to wearing comfortable and breathable clothing.  We don’t really wear boots on a casual sunny day.  We don’t wear coats a lot because obviously you would look ridiculous wearing trench coats, stylish boots, colorful scarves and cute beret on a sunny weather all year long. Not unless you are a blogger of...

In my earlier posts, I mentioned that I’m iffy about celebrating my birthday lately because I feel that I am getting old!   I just turned a quarter of a hundred and I am now transitioning into a next stage in my life!  Change is always scary and uncertain but quite refreshing at times.  I have always reminded people not to expect too much on things they can’t control and in life, there...
