Travelogue: Hongkong Disneyland

No comments:
HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH. Am I dreaming? When I was I child, reading those fairy-tale books of princes and princesses makes me wish they were true. I dreamed of those castles, draw bridges and towers to  to be real  and that I've always wanted to be a princess. Now that I've grown up, I am still living my childhood dreams but now that I am finally here, it felt like it is still a dream. I have to pinch myself to believe that I am finally making my dreams a reality. I never thought I would be able to visit this place. I'm still floating whenever I scan through my Disneyland photos. It never gets old. It reminds me that i would never stop chasing dreams. Today I am going to tour you around at the happiest place on earth. Welcome to the world of dreams.

Pinkerella

No comments:
OFF TO DREAMLAND IN PINK! Hongkong Disneyland was only a dream for me, now its a reality. I never thought I would be able to visit this place. It was such a blessing knowing that I don't have money to spend for my own travels but still I was able to make it.  I am still a student and has to rely on my parents and sisters for my expenses. On that day, when I chased my dreams and make it a reality, I told myself "You have to make a lot of memories this day". Hence, I took my new dress that I especially prepared for this day, put on my new bag and my favorite round sunnies and off we went to Disneyland ---equipped to make awesome memories! That day too, I wanted to live my dream of being a princess HAHA! And since pink is my fave color, hence, the pink dress! I would like to call myself---"pinkerella" ! Heck! How corny! HAHAHAHA. That day I made tons of memories (which I will be talking about on my next post). I had so many "firsts" at that place including my first ever tram ride. It's sure is the most memorable day in my life by far. A day I will never forget. A day that my dream turned into reality.

Travelogue: Nan Lian Garden, Hongkong

1 comment:
GEM AT DIAMOND HILL. On our third Hongkong destination, we went to Nan Lian Garden. I was in awe when we entered the garden's gate! We were greeted by these pretty trees and stunning boulders. Its absolutely picture perfect! The Garden is a place for quiet contemplation, for meditation and repose. In the serenity of its trees and shrubs, there is a quiet vitality in the flirting of birds and the rippling of the water as fishes glide in the pond. A leisurely stroll to this place will give you a rich appreciation of nature.

If the Royal Wedding made Catherine Middleton a Duchess, or a slipper made Cinderella an instant Princess, Princess Hazel Salon and Spa will surely inspire to bring out every royalty dream filled with beauty and pampering choices minus the luxury pricing. Being back from my hectic and sleepless thesis nights, I was so glad I was given a chance to try out this royal spa located in South Triangle, Quezon Ave.. I had so many pimples on my forehead which needed a treatment so I decided to choose a service that would put an end to my pimple dilemmas. HUHU.

Royal as Blue

No comments:
ROYAL BLUE. Prolly my fave color next to pink is royal blue, and this has to be my third outfit in Hongkong, when we went to this park at the heart of Diamond Hill. I instantly fell inlove with this place. I mean look at that golden temple with its stunning orange bridge behind me. Such a gem! A dream for me which I don't wanna wake up. Yep that is absolutely how I feel whenever I see beautiful places like this. Although I will talk more about it on my next post. For now, I will be posting these outfit shots I had that day. This outfit is actually totally unplanned. I was supposed to wear shorts and tee combo but then, since my sister is wearing a dress, I thought of wearing a dress too to match her. HAHA! I am such a jealous slug i know! Naah,,. we're just twin at hearts! She was actually the one who suggested that I'd be wearing this! see? sisterly love! That's why I love travelling with them! We mostly have the same likes and dislikes! Anyway, here are my outfit shots that my sister took for me. I hope you guys will enjoy it. Please do come back for my travelogue to this beautiful place on my next post. (^-^) Enjoy!

Travelogue: Sabbath in Hongkong

No comments:
Church day! Our agenda for this day is to meet our aunt in Tsim Shat Sui and attend the Sabbath Service at Bible Auditorium Church of Seventh-day Adventist. Yes, I am a Seventh-day Adventist, and we go to church on Saturdays. A lot of my friends actually find it weird. Whenever they ask me why I go to church on Saturdays instead of Sundays, I always give them these verses ---"Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy. Six days you shall do your work but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord...... The Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. -Exodus 20:8-11". Saturday is the seventh day of the week and not Sunday. (^-^) I wish you have learned something new today while reading this.

Comfy in Pink

No comments:
On my first full day in Hongkong, I went for a comfy look. Exhausted and still jet-lagged from our flight, I chose to wear flat shoes and jeans so i could move freely and walk comfortably. I also chose to wear this knitted top which my sister gave me when we arrived in Hongkong including the jeans. It's airy which is very helpful for our long sweaty walks all throughout the day. I brought with me too my fave sunnies from Romwe. It was a fun and exciting day for me. The anticipation was high and I was really really happy to experience and smell the hongkey kongey. We shoot these photos at the City Walk in Tsuen Wan and at the magical Ma Wan Park. The backdrop is so lovely that I have to snap tons of photos. It was a dream! I never thought I would reach this place really. So I was infinitely thankful to God that He gave me this blessing. My love for travel was ignited! I want to travel more and explore the world. This is my dream.
