Have you ever been to NOLITA or ever heard of this New-York inspired resto located in BGC Central? Oh well, it's about time for you to take a bite of their luscious pizzas & burgers by Chef Cuit Kaufman. Expect nothing but the best of American food items on their menu especially their best seller- their authentic New-York style pizzas on its menu. According to OurAwesomePlanet food blog site, it is a follow-up to their successful Borough resto in Podium.

It was my first time to try it here with my college friends for a quick dinners before having some pub crawling around the BGC area. It's the perfect place to grab quick food hunger fix and just hang out with friends in a laid-back ambiance. We spent the rest of our stay laughing out loud, taking photos using monopod & sharing endless life stories while indulging in their food menus from pizza down to their dessert. Worth a try here at Nolita.

Travel: MacRitchie Reservoir Singapore

Have you ever been to MacRitchie Reservoir Park? If not then you gotta make sure to visit this place if you're a tourist and for those working or living here in Singapore, Yes! this place is damn good worth to wake up for in the morning for a quick jog or yoga. This place is such a hidden gem giving Singapore such an obvious natural view on a different perspective. 

Seeing skyscrapers around Orchard area and the towering buildings at Marina Bay area are some of the usual scenery of Singapore from travel guides & postcards, but here in MacRitchie Nature Park, you'll be amazed on how nature & water reservoir was maintained to almost an untouched state. I've heard of this place together with Henderson Waves few years back but just came here recently for the first time. 

Mac Ritchie Reservoir have a water reservoir & nature park at the entrance area giving you the most perfect view for a morning workout. Going inside will be an uphill trail great for marathon enthusiast as an exercise vennue. They also have resto, coffee shop & some other touristy stop inside so you really just have to wear your favourite sporty gear and you're off to go. You can even go here to finish a book, bring earphones for some me-time moment or come in group with friends to stroll around and enjoy the beauty of nature here at MacRitchie Reservoir & Nature Park.

Fashion: Plaid Republic

Checkered patterns will never go out of style. I think it should be everyone's basic fashion staple that never go out of trend in any fashion season. I have few checkered shirt & polos that can be paired to any casual or formal OOTD from usual everyday day wear and to any random formal events.

I got this polo shirt on sale  from Aeropostale Philippines at SM Aura. My undershirt was from Nuvali Republ1c WakePark given by a friend making this outfit having that sporty edge look. I paired it with denim shorts from Cotton On and leather sneakers from Coach Singapore. 

For the accessories, I wore this two toned sunnies from Zumeiz.com and my ever useful Casio vintage watch with some black leather bracelets from Hong Kong. You may wonder why this look seemed to be quite new to your eyes in terms of my usual style, but that's the point as I'm trying to reinvent my usual fashion look and hope this gave you inspiration not to be afraid in wearing what you think is fashion & style through your creative mind.

Fashion: Hype @ Henderson

And so I'm taking my OOTD shoot to the highest level this time thanks to my forever photographer / travel escapade partner Jizelle who visited Singapore for 2 weeks so we were able to squeeze this long overdue visit to the infamous Henderson Wave Bridge. It was a sunny afternoon when we went to this place and plan to take some LookBook shot as what we usually do few years back since we both started working here in Singapore.

My love for Lookbook website inspired me to have this HYPE shirt purchased from Market Market Store back in Manila Philppines. Some might ask about this but this is a popular website for fashion bloggers wherein you can post fashion looks and other members of the Lookbook community can Hype (LIKE) your post. I just love black & white combo lately, I don't know exactly why but I always end up wearing it instead of my usual colorful OOTD's (maybe I'm getting matured).

I matched this look with my oversized gym bag from SM Dept Store and camouflage sneakers from Vans. Since its a very sunmy day, I wore my FIGHT statement cap from Penshoppe and floral designed sunnies from zumeiz.com And with my shaved head look, it was a total bad-ass / boy next door look. So what can you say about this outfit? Keep reading my blogs for more fashion post inspiration.

Have you ever imagined your favourite yema (famous Pinoy dessert) topped over a freshly baked & moist cupcake? Well, here in SLICE located at Bonifacio Global City, it's only one of their few crowds favourite and authentic menu items must-try. 

I have been following local food blogs and saw one blog entry of SLICE from www.awesomeplanet.com. When I saw the food items of SLICE, I knew right from there I need to try this food haven in Manila. I tried this restaurant alone on an early Sunday morning during my weekend visit in Manila last month. But because of hangover, I did not have the appetite for an early morning breakfast so instead, I just decided to go straight for dessert which include their very own Chocolate Yema Cake and Citrus Muffin. It was simply delicious having all the flavours, moist and fresh ingredients come all together in a muffin and cupcake.

I also had their freshly made fruit-infused water instead of having my regular coffee. They have wide varieties of wholesome pasta and breakfast food items to taste. They have the friendliest staff and the ambience was simply amazing having a well decorated interior and comfy seats whether you want it inside or outdoor too. SLICE is located at Southeast Block Lower Ground Floor Bonifacio High Street Central Taguig City.
