Manila Photo Album + Lookbook| 2019

I’ve traveled to and from Manila several times on my life already, usually once or twice a year. I’ve grown used to the busy streets, the towering buildings, the rumbling of trains and airplanes, the bright lights, the delicious food, the charming kalesas (horse-drawn carriages). Somewhere along the way, I’ve fallen in love with the history, the culture, the beauty of the capital of the Philippines, my home country.

Here I’m sharing a lookbook and photo album of my latest Manila trip with my family.

When we arrived at Duty Free, the first thing we did was shop for chocolates, and we may have overdone it haha that’s my brother

Birch Tower provided such excellent services, me and my family had a wonderful stay at Manila because of them



And that’s it for my holiday travels. Now I’m chilling at home and enjoying the Christmas season with my family and friends. Stay safe and happy, everyone!

  1. I have a coworker who is from the Philippines and then others from other islands. I have never been to Manila but would love to go, especially to that cute Japanese bakery.
