Spectrun 2016: Run 2 Save Lives

2 of #100HappyThings


Last June 11, 2016, Saturday, I joined the Mu Sigma Epsilon Sorority – UST Faculty of Medicine‘s Spectrun 2016: Run 2 Save Lives at Roxas Boulevard, a color charity fun run for the pediatric cancer patients of Tahan-Tahanan Foundation. I really love doing outreach and charity works, so whenever I have the chance and the means, I really engage myself into such activities.



I was with my friends Kent, Nikki and Sir Yves. We ran for the 3K marathon except for Kent who ran for 5K. Special thanks to my high school batchmate, Christopher (not in the picture), for inviting us in the event. He’s a UST Med student by the way. 🙂



This is my first run for this year because I had been busy during the first half of 2016. I am looking forward to more runs that will benefit needy. 🙂




We even saw former Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim when we had our breakfast at Jollibee – Harbour Square. His whole team was just on the table next to us. Hahaha. We wanted to take a photo with him but he seemed busy that time.


Congratulations to the whole team behind Spectrun 2016 for pulling off a successful color run!

It was really a fun run. During the run, I think I wasn’t just doing it for the cancer patients, but for myself as well. I felt free. I never felt so free for a long time, and I’m glad that I’m experiencing it now.

It feels great to finally be able to do things without something that’s holding me back. It feels great to run with a light heart. It feels great that I am now running again after getting a wound from falling.

Life is indeed a race… A colorful race.

Green on a Monday


First of all, I would like to apologize for the low quality photo since I took this one all by myself (yes, self-timer it is, on HDR because our office is in low light). I haven’t posted an #OOTD post for a long time so I am keeping up a quick one since I’ve had #ootd realizations with this dress.

I bought this dress from F&F at Paseo De Santa Rosa (Laguna). I rarely like clothes in green shades, considering that I am morena and I might look like a tree, but this dress really caught me so much.

I have always thought that wearing knee-length skirts or dresses will make me look really short (I’m not tall, as in definitely NOT tall, FYI), but this dress proved me wrong. It looked like a tailored dress on me, and I love how the A-cut shape complimented my body edges and leg length. I paired it with a snake-skin styled brown belt, and my usual snake-skin styled two-inched heels office shoes which I bought from Milani at Landmark (Makati).

Now I know that with the right fit, mix-and-match and of course, confidence and comfort, a petite woman like me can actually rock a knee-length A-line dress. A good find indeed! 😉

By the way, you can also score good finds from ZALORA! And as a Zalora Brand Ambassador, here’s a gift for you! Just visit WWW.ZALORA.COM.PH, shop and use the code below to get 15% discount! Enjoy shopping!

During the APEC break (November 18-21), my family decided to have a quick North getaway. We left Manila Wednesday morning at around 5AM, had a lot of stopovers, and reached Vigan City at around 7:30PM. After eating dinner and enjoying Vigan’s night life, we decided to rest to continue our Ilocos adventure the next day.


It was really hot so I opted to wear sleeveless and shorts. I am most comfortable wearing shorts during long travels because it makes me really free to move.



Demins are always on track. For that day, I wore a black sleeveless top with a denim vest. I also paired them with my pink shorts for a girly but outgoing look.



I also used my Skechers Memory Foam footwear with pink shoe laces because aside from being a perfect match with the look that I wanted to achieve, it’s really good for long walks and long runs and I didn’t sacrifice comfort over style. I got the best of both worlds!


Here are our quick stops in Ilocos that you might want to visit when you get there:

1. Vigan’s Main City Plaza
2. Calle Crisologo ♥
3. Baluarte Zoo
4. Paoay Lake
5. Paoay Church
6. Fort Ilocandia

Ilocos’ BAGNET and EMPANADA are must-try’s!

For long travels like this, you must have a good companion to take care of your things. Personally, I choose The North Face bags because there’s a variety of bags that you can choose from, depending on your needs. And guess what? Zalora has them in store for you! You can buy bags from The North Face through Zalora and have them delivered right at your doorstep! Pretty much a click away for a great travel experience!

I can’t wait to visit Ilocos again, especially Vigan City. It’s a place that I would love to go back to again and again.
