Hello from Enchanted Kingdom in Santa Rosa, Laguna.

 It's only my second time at  EK (Enchanted Kingdom) , the first time was when I was ten years old (not sure when exactly) with my family. Their entrance reminded me so much of Disney Land (do you think so, too?) and since I'm having a project called "JAPAN IN MNL" that I've recently introduced, I included EK on the list. The rides were a reminiscent of Disneyland, Disney Sea  and Universal Studios just more localised.

Met up with my friends from Tokyo today. Mariye, AkemiDang and I were coincidentally all in Manila right now. We've met for the first time in Tokyo through Gervin. So happy to see them today especially when Dang suggested we should try Vanilla Cupcake Bakery in Trinoma Mall. It was a cupcake heaven indeed although I loved their red velvet cheesecake more than anything in their store.    Their store was shouting kawaii all over.

I attended the TRESemme Runway Ready Backstage Fashion Show at Sofitel Garden Harbour Tent last night - thanks to Tricia! It was a collaborative show with Filipino designers Rhett Eala, Francis Liberan, Rajo Laurel and hair stylists Victor Ortega, Lourd Ramos & Jing Monis. Truth to be told, the show renewed my love for local designers and artists (hair stylists, make-up artists, etc) alike. So happy to be invited by Tricia and watch her shine (she's one of the ambassadors of the brand).      

Dresses by Francis Libiran are always whimsical! 

If I have all the money in the world, I would spend it on Rhett Eala's creations.

Surprise, surprise! I'm in Manila now. I'm sure I didn't really elaborate in the previous blog post that I'll be coming home. But, I'm going to stay here now. I miss Japan so much at the same time, I'm excited for my "new" life here. First off, I'll be showing you to places that I find similar to Japan in a way. So even if I'm not in Japan any more, I won't be feeling homesick. I've asked my family and friends about places in Manila / Philippines that remind them about Japan and they gave me quite a list. If you have any suggestions, please comment down below.  

 Yesterday, my friends took me to this mall called "Century City" in Makati to try this concept food court, "Hole in the Wall".  My first impression was, it's definitely not a dingy place. I'm not sure why they named it that way, probably just to catch some attention. Actually, it's a perfect fit for people like me who's looking for places that reminds them of their favourite spots abroad. It will surely remind someone of Hong Kong or Korea, too. But since I lived in Japan, it reminded me of it.  

Matcha sesame! Yum, my favourite combination in one. In Japan, we usually have soft serves of matcha and sesame. What a clever idea to make a cookie version of it! I wasn't able to try it because I was really full and feeling bloated that time.

Today, I just want to share with you an "oshare" café discovery in Osaka. All thanks to my friend Allie. As you can see in the photo, it is called interior bookworm café. Although there are only about eight seats, everything is just eyesome and I would really love t hangout with a friend here. 

They allow take aways, too. But if you have time, I suggest you to sit for a while and enjoy the calmness. 

Let's go in!
