I was so excited! My first ever trip to Philippines :D
Since I was a kid, the only relation of Philippines I knew about was Imelda Marcos was the first lady there (then) and she was famous (apart from being the first lady) for having lots and lots of shoes. She was the ultimate shoe queen, before all the other shoe queens existed. So, I was extremely excited
All thanks to AirAsia Zest ofcourse, my 4 hour trip was smooth and I managed to sleep.
It was a short 3 day trip to visit Rags2Riches HQ
which is supported by the AirAsia Foundation (more on that on my next post)
At LCCT for my flight, wearing: THRIFTED scarf, THRIFTED denim shirt, TOPSHOP daisy sequined top, OLA necklace, F21 jeans & LOUIS VUITTON speedy. I rarely wear heels nowdays (especially when travelling) but when you visit the land of Imelda Marcos, you have to pay homage to the shoe queen :)
We stayed at the beautiful, sleek F1 Manila Hotel
which was located at the modern part of Manila.
Night look for dinner at Banifacio Fort, and as halal food was sparse/so hard to find, we had Arab food. Banifacio Fort and all the shops surrounding it was beautiful and nicely placed within walking distance from one another. It reminded me of Ginza in Tokyo.
Wearing: Leopard print shawl, FBLOCK polka dot scallop top, GALLO denim jacket, SAUDAGARCO necklace, CHANEL brooches & LOUIS VUITTON speedy.
