I never pictured celebrating my 18th on the shores of Lian but after spending the entire day swimming in the morning, lounging around and making bonfires at night; I’m glad I didn’t go for anything too grand. The weather, on the other hand, has been unpredictable during our entire stay. I usually don’t post gloomy photos but I guess a little raw imagery appreciation isn’t so bad.
Despite having our family vacation here annually, this year’s trip felt the most remarkable. After 5-days of staying more on water than land and poor signal, it felt like the break I badly needed from life in the metro and pretty much everything. As much as I want to ramble aimlessly about how I spent my island life, I’ll keep this short and let the pictures do all the talking.

Wearing black during the summer is basically suicide but surprisingly both pieces were light and felt hassle free. I had to wear this out to the Style Weekend’s Women Who Wow cocktail event a few weeks back, which was located at the top of one of Makati’s high rises. We’re talking 71 stories high with an impeccable skyline- I almost forgot I was acrophobic for a bit.
