Looks like filming a mid-1800s film set in the middle of the busy street. Had a nice walking around there checking out the old buildings and having fun buying souvenirs like candies and shirts (score cool bargains and inexpensive items!). Don't forget to take a lot of photos and walk around towards Downtown for another shopping spree adventure :)

10 to Zen - a repost

Image
I have found this on my Timeline and here are things we should let go of...

1. Let go of comparing.
2. Let go of competing.
3. Let go of judgments.
4. Let go of anger.
5. Let go of regrets.
6. Let go of worrying.
7. Let go of blame.
8. Let go of guilt.
9. Let go of fear.

10. Have a proper belly laugh at least once a day esp if it's about your inability to let go of any of all of the above

Have a great weekend!

Fun, comfort and style with Giordano denim

Image
THE PHILIPPINES, AUGUST 2013 – Fashion trends come and go, but only one thing remains constant: denim.

Since it was invented in 1853, the sturdy fabric has been molded into different fits and styles – bellbottom, boot cut, bleached, washed, colored. And unique to the denim is how it flatters every person who wears it, from workers to rock stars, cowboys to celebrities; it’s the ultimate staple apparel. True to its long and rich history, the denim jean is designed to last forever.

In celebration of this classic material, Giordano Philippines launches “Denim Now. Denim Forever”. Can be worn by anybody in any season for almost any occasion, the raw and colored denim offered in the collection is available in different fits and styles.

“Denim Now. Denim Forever” underlines the material’s sturdy yet comfortable characteristic. “Compared with last year’s denim collection, this year’s pieces are different in terms of fabrication, thread and pocket design. The styles now have a higher spandex con…

Hello USA!

Image
Hello everyone. At last, I have enough time to organize all photos of my recent adventure in USA. Yup, I left end of July and will be staying here as an Immigrant. I was able to meet my relatives in California (thanks to you my dear family!) and had attended a town reunion in Las Vegas. Plus, I've met my college friend in Las Vegas and we talked everything under the sun. My last stop was in Chicago and meet my family :)

Before anything else, I would like to thank personally some of my co-workers effort in helping me out to sort out things and helped my brother to move out things from my apartment.
I only brought small things with me because of the baggage limit and gave away some of my treasures, lol.
In less than a month, I was able to visit:

Sacramento Capitol
Old Sacramento
Las Vegas
Universal Studios in Los Angeles
San Francisco's Golden Gate


Will's aka Sear's Tower
Navy Pier
Millenium Park
Buckingham Fountain

and many to mention

I will try my very best to upload these photos an…
