Twas a rainy week last week and the weather sort of reflected the mood that I was in. Before it ended, I found myself heading down South for a couple of things one night. It wasn’t actually planned but I resorted to reacting to events rather than sticking with what was on the schedule. It […]

My sister can attest to my affinity with outlet shopping (I heart Harbour Town in Australia!) and this recent trip to a shopping mall located outside Manila (northern part of Luzon) seals it. I still can’t believe that my friends and I went out of our way to especially go to Robinson’s Starmills in Pampanga. […]

The past couple of days have been rainy and spent in one of my least favourite places — the hospital. I hate the smell and the constant reminder of our mortality, frail and fleeting.

The Modern Filipina

The Modern Filipina - Sasha Manuel, Outfits | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Who is the modern Filipina? With all the changes happening all around and having observed how the culture evolved for the past two (2) decades, I can’t help but ask the question. How do you define such a woman? We have to admit that we come from a society filled with rules (not to mention, […]
