I don’t know why this posted despite putting it on draft mode. It’s a bit redundant of my previous post, but what the heck…So sorry! Bear with me while I decode this Polyvore sharing feature. Ooops!
Hi guys! So sorry my blog has been so erratic lately! I’ve focused my energy on my new baby, my DIPLOshop. Just trying to get it off the ground is taking a lot of energy and time. I’m actually feeling a relapse of carpal tunnel symptoms because I am not only spending a lot of

Hey guys! I’ve discovered another thing I love… POLYVORE! So this is how all those fashionistas are creating their super cool “looks!” And it’s so darn easy! Yey now I’ve a way to create some looks without resorting to low-tech Powerpoint heehee. Occassionally I’ll do a post when I feel inspired. Best thing about it
I’ve been meaning to take pictures of Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace / Shop / Cafe ever since I saw an amzing paper exhibit there last year. I’ve always just been super super busy! I finally had an excuse to go there when I met up with Bea, a fellow Filipino and a newbie in the Jakarta scene.
I was getting hungry while waiting for our domestic flight to depart in NAIA 3 so we went to the convenience store to buy a snack when these colorful mini-Jeepney carts caught my eye! To my delight they were selling yummy healthy Malunggay snack products! If you see these babies around Manila or anywhere in the
Living in a home that is divinely scented is one of lifes little pleasures that I appreciate. I try not to use chemical air fresheners which are harmful for us and our pet. I’ve always been an oil burner or scented candle kind of girl, until 2 wonderful people decided to give me these beautiful
When staying in Nusa Dua the outside world (like Seminyak) is not so accessible unless you have a car rental or travel about 30 minutes via taxi so I got to go around on foot a lot. Bali Collection is the nearest place to go for shopping and food. It’s a beautiful leisurely 10-15 minute
Before leaving TD did some research on the restaurant to eat in in Yangon and Myanmar so he had a shortlist of options with their addresses with him. The way we decided was to ask our driver which restaurant was the most convenient to go to knowing our itinerary. On the night we arrived we
One of our go-to places for Pinoy (Filipino) food is Sentro. I love how they reinvent traditional Filipino dishes in a more contemporary way. Whenever I am back in Manila we usually go for the Boneless Crispy Trotter (Pata), Fried Kesong Puti (fried cheese) and Pinoy Osso Bucco! So just wanna share with you the
I am so excited because of my new baby, my DIPLOshop, where I can share with friends in Jakarta some of the stuff I curate and create! (It’s still on soft-launch so more improvements and hours of work for me to put in yet.) Today I posted something that I created and that I am
Yesterday I was invited to the launch of the LiveOlive.com, a new website that makes money matters simpler for women at Otel Lobby. I only got to take a few pictures because it was a super packed event. Excited for my fellow Filipinos who launched this exciting new website and service! Congratulations guys and thanks
There is an on going debate on which lechon (roast suckling pig) is better, Cebu or Iligan/CDO. I still stand by this: The best lechon is from Iligan and Cagayan de Oro (since it’s my blog I can say so heehee). But ultimately it boils down to your lechonero (the guy who makes it for
Myanmar was one destination that was super unfamiliar for us so it was hard to prepare considering that the information found on the net are not up to date. Even the brief from our embassy there was not up-to-date either. So in true DiploFashion, I came prepared. Here is a list of what I brought.
One thing you can do if you are staying in the Nusa Dua area in Bali is to go cycling around. The area is safe, but if you’re not confident on a bicycle it can still be a bit scary because of the motorcycles and cars. Note that there are areas where you have to
We booked our hotels to Myanmar about a month ahead. Because of these our choices were limited. We got whatever we could. When we arrived in Yangon we stayed in Yuzana Hotel in Yangon which was quite old and not so clean. But the thing that made it all worth while was that it over-looked
