Fashion: Plaid Republic

Checkered patterns will never go out of style. I think it should be everyone's basic fashion staple that never go out of trend in any fashion season. I have few checkered shirt & polos that can be paired to any casual or formal OOTD from usual everyday day wear and to any random formal events.

I got this polo shirt on sale  from Aeropostale Philippines at SM Aura. My undershirt was from Nuvali Republ1c WakePark given by a friend making this outfit having that sporty edge look. I paired it with denim shorts from Cotton On and leather sneakers from Coach Singapore. 

For the accessories, I wore this two toned sunnies from Zumeiz.com and my ever useful Casio vintage watch with some black leather bracelets from Hong Kong. You may wonder why this look seemed to be quite new to your eyes in terms of my usual style, but that's the point as I'm trying to reinvent my usual fashion look and hope this gave you inspiration not to be afraid in wearing what you think is fashion & style through your creative mind.

Fashion: Hype @ Henderson

And so I'm taking my OOTD shoot to the highest level this time thanks to my forever photographer / travel escapade partner Jizelle who visited Singapore for 2 weeks so we were able to squeeze this long overdue visit to the infamous Henderson Wave Bridge. It was a sunny afternoon when we went to this place and plan to take some LookBook shot as what we usually do few years back since we both started working here in Singapore.

My love for Lookbook website inspired me to have this HYPE shirt purchased from Market Market Store back in Manila Philppines. Some might ask about this but this is a popular website for fashion bloggers wherein you can post fashion looks and other members of the Lookbook community can Hype (LIKE) your post. I just love black & white combo lately, I don't know exactly why but I always end up wearing it instead of my usual colorful OOTD's (maybe I'm getting matured).

I matched this look with my oversized gym bag from SM Dept Store and camouflage sneakers from Vans. Since its a very sunmy day, I wore my FIGHT statement cap from Penshoppe and floral designed sunnies from zumeiz.com And with my shaved head look, it was a total bad-ass / boy next door look. So what can you say about this outfit? Keep reading my blogs for more fashion post inspiration.

Food: SLICE

Have you ever imagined your favourite yema (famous Pinoy dessert) topped over a freshly baked & moist cupcake? Well, here in SLICE located at Bonifacio Global City, it's only one of their few crowds favourite and authentic menu items must-try. 

I have been following local food blogs and saw one blog entry of SLICE from www.awesomeplanet.com. When I saw the food items of SLICE, I knew right from there I need to try this food haven in Manila. I tried this restaurant alone on an early Sunday morning during my weekend visit in Manila last month. But because of hangover, I did not have the appetite for an early morning breakfast so instead, I just decided to go straight for dessert which include their very own Chocolate Yema Cake and Citrus Muffin. It was simply delicious having all the flavours, moist and fresh ingredients come all together in a muffin and cupcake.

I also had their freshly made fruit-infused water instead of having my regular coffee. They have wide varieties of wholesome pasta and breakfast food items to taste. They have the friendliest staff and the ambience was simply amazing having a well decorated interior and comfy seats whether you want it inside or outdoor too. SLICE is located at Southeast Block Lower Ground Floor Bonifacio High Street Central Taguig City.

Fashion: n'1

It's been a time chasing week that I was not able to post blog entries for the past few days. Well anyways since I have the time now, will try to edit and update fashion and food blogs to share it with you all. 

Recently the Singapore weather calls for umbrellas and sun creams as the humidity was rising. Last month I went to USS again for the 9th time maybe to join a friend visiting from Qatar. I had nothing to wear so I decided to pamper myself for a little shopping. I went around Orchard area and stopped by Bershka to see their items on sale. The moment I saw this white n'1 top, I know this was the right one to buy. I've been recently addicted with the timeless black and white OOTD as I find it easy and comfy to wear on any occassions. 

I paired this top with Uniqlo black shorts and wore my Nike SB Stefan Janoski sneakers. I also brought my plaid checkered shirt to break the monotony of my look. For accessories, I had my Casio vintage watch and black leather bracelets from Hongkong. Since its a very sunny and bad hairday too, I wore my Caguiaoa cap (famous Pinoy Basketball Player) and my two toned sunnies from Zumeiz.com. So keep in touch with my blog for more fashion ideas soon ;)

YELLOW CAB Pizza Co.

Yellow Cab will always be the 1st place in my heart when it comes to pizza!  They always have the best menu offerings for classic  and specialty pizza, don't forget to try their pasta too. If you're a true blood Pinoy,  Yellow Cab will surely be part of your college memories. Yes you'll digest all the carbs, meat, fats and oils after trying their heavenly tasting pizza but who cares, it's not that bad to have a cheat meal once in a while.

I'm pretty sure this will be loved by Singapore too once they opened up a chain here so here's a food guide if you're a first timer here. They have 3 sizes to choose from Regular (serves 4), Large (serves 6) and New Yorker (serves 8). For classic pizza selections, you can go for NY Classic simply with the NY all-time favourite pizza topping- pepperoni. Their New York's Finest is their best seller, combining meats and freah vegetables together. Manhattan Meatlovers is also to die for which is an all meat pizza: ham, Italian sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, salami & bacon. 

For Specialty pizza, #4 Cheese is definitely for cheese lovers like me which combines Mozzarella, Cheddar, Romano & Feta cheese all together- Cheese Heaven! Their Barbecue Chicken which consist of chicken strips, red onion and cilantro in a hickory smoked barbecue sauce is also a must-try! And of course unique dishes of Yellow Cab like Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta and Dear Darla should be added to your menu options too, uniquely done and a such a true signature dish. 

For their dessert, you can finish it off by trying their specialty ice cream that comes it various flavours like vanilla and strawberry but you gotta go for their Pistachio, it's the best! They are open 24 hours so its the perfect place after a drinking session with friends or taking a late night dinner with family or friends!
