Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall and Winter 2013: A Mix of Mismatch

Posted by on Jan 18, 2013 in Art & Photography, Business & Finance, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Style Flair, Travel

I have always enjoyed crowd-watching in Hong Kong. When it’s spring or summer, you would see vibrant colors in their wardrobe from shoes to bags and accessories. Come winter time, you get to see the locals strut the city streets with hip boots and cover-ups! With this, I didn’t let the chance to cover Hong Kong Fashion Week just pass by. I receive invites to different countries to...

Solo Trip Hong Kong CNY

Posted by on Jan 23, 2012 in Events, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

I’ve flown solo before but I think it’s my first time alone in Hong Kong. I just made sure that I don’t go home too late when I went to Avenue of the Stars because Nathan Road was full of potentially dangerous people. Anyhoo… I brought clothes for an 18 deg C weather cause that’s what it said when I checked. I didn’t know that at night it plunges down to 8 deg...

(Your task is to please take a look at it, followarchuleta.ph ktnxbai :P) It’s a job I love because I get to be with a lot of people everyday and I believe, every single person I meet has interesting stories! I was so looking forward to this Hong Kong trip. Well, not...

Partying in Hong Kong

Posted by on Jun 30, 2011 in Featured, Food, Hong Kong, Travel

I’ve been to Hong Kong a few times, what can I say, I love the food and the sights here.  But, I’ve never been out to experience the night life.  I have planned to go out a few times but since I don’t know any locals in HK, it was hard. I think the best way to explore the city is to befriend a local 😛 You have virtualtourist.com, travelocity and many other sites that will let...

Posted by on May 16, 2011 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Food, Hong Kong, Travel

Before I start the post, here’s a flower to all of my readers 🙂 Flowers are everywhere and I can’t help but take snapshots of it! Before anything else, I just want to say that writing this blog post is such a torture.  It kept on getting me hungry just by viewing these photos again. When Vince and I traveled to Hong Kong again, we decided to focus our stay on Disneyland for 3 days, stay in...

Disney in the Stars Fireworks Display and How to Capture It

Posted by on Apr 27, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

Disneyland is all about happiness and magic!  What better way to celebrate a lovely day than to watch the Disney in the Stars Fireworks Display at night?  Disneyland shows fireworks display everyday at around 8pm to wrap up the day. I love fireworks and I’m always amazed at the art of pyrotechnics!  Disney fireworks are always fun because they do it around the castle, in harmony with...

Flights of Fantasy Parade at Hong Kong Disneyland

Posted by on Mar 31, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

Happy 5th anniversary Hong Kong Disneyland! 5 years ago, Disneyland officially opened in Hong Kong!  This meant a lot to us Filipinos because we don’t have to go all the way to the US to experience the magical world of Disneyland.  Hong Kong is just 2 hours away from the Philippines and this meant, more happy trips to kids and… well, adult kid like me 😛  It’s more affordable...

My Favorite Hong Kong Disneyland Attractions

Posted by on Mar 16, 2011 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

Vince and I love going to Hong Kong and we came back last February 25, 2011 to explore the magical world of Disneyland. We had a splendid vacation last November spending 5 days and 4 nights on the island we love. We brought work with us so pretty much we spent most of our time working and did not have enough time to roam around the city! I scheduled our trip on a very busy month, my bad. But,...

Flaircandy Visits the Magical World of Hong Kong Disneyland

Posted by on Mar 14, 2011 in Announcements, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

It’s a small world after all! Who would’ve thought I’d meet my favorite Disney characters in person!  I am such a Disney child.  I grew up watching almost all Disney movies and even as I grow up, I still watch Disney with my little sister and little brother.  My favorite shows were Lizzy Mcguire, Phil of the Future, Adventures of Zach and Cody, Lilo and Stich the series...

Hong Kong Wetlands

Posted by on Mar 8, 2011 in Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

This is a place usually unknown to tourists.  People don’t usually go here a lot.  We found ourselves as lone foreign tourists in the place, accompanied by students on a field trip, some artists sketching and local Hong Kong tourists who brought their zoom lenses to take photographs of birds. Hong Kong Wetlands – A Place for Photographers and Nature Lovers We went here last...

ViVi Magazine

I love Japanese fashion and I always appreciate how they express themselves freely when it comes to dressing up.  I went to Hong Kong just to grab myself a copy of Vivi Magazine where it is also being published.  For those of you who don’t know what Vivi magazine is, it is a Japanese fashion magazine published in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand only.  Target audience is college...

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...

Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Posted by on Nov 24, 2010 in Art & Photography, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel, Wardrobe

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...
