Thomson Reuters Mnla Company Outing goes to Canyon Cove - Nasugbo Batangas

Thomson Reuters - Manila goes to Canyon Cove Beach Resort for the Annual Summer Outing

I was excited for days last week and really looking forward to be part of our yearly company summer outing. I am really looking forward to every company outing or gathering. It is our time to enjoy, relax and mingle with each other outside the company premise. A time to really laugh together and talk about anything under the sun.

On our way... I was definitely happy. We drop by at Dely's house of Pasalubong in Tagaytay

After long hour of travel due to traffic we finally reached our destination. At first, I am not feeling the place as it looks old. However, when we finally went inside the hotel, the amenities is shockingly good.

The group went to Canyon Cove at Nasugbo Batangas. The view is definitely breath taking.

Am sure the rest of the group enjoyed the stay as much as I do.



Swimming Time:

Beat the Flash!
I am going natural! LOL

Dropping by at Collettes in Tagaytay before heading home!

Office Attire for Men

I would say that buying clothes is one of my weakness. Or I would say I am an impulse buyer.. Maybe one of the reason for me is that buying men's clothes are expensive and basically its really hard to find one that matches every mans taste and fashion style.

It is also a struggle for me because when you go to a market place be in Divisoria and Baclaran or in the malls. I would say that this places usually sells more women's clothes than men. That's when I tried to look over the virtual world or the worldwide web and I was able to create my own fashion must-haves.

Good thing I found this an online shopping with Free Shipping within Metro Manila and Cash on Delivery payment option. So, I have come up with my selection and choices of my supposed office attire.

Lets start with the pants. It is always great for men to have a variety of easy to wear slacks when going to the office. The color choices I have is of course black, cream, and brown. This are great colors as they could easily match on your shirt.

Long and short Sleeve shirt. This comes with different color and style. I would say don't wear too tight and body hugging and too loose like a maternity shirt already. Just the right size is just the right attitude you need.

Buy bags and neck tie to accessories your look. It would be best to have a different color of tie and bags. So it would be easier for you to choose depending on your look for the day.

Aside from having a good bag and tie that matches your look it is also a must have to have a pair of black shoes. Black shoes and belt is a must have as it can go along with any color. Another option is to have a different colors of shoes to spice up your look once in awhile.

The above selection is my ideal look when you go to the office on a daily basis or when you are attending a job interview. If you want to see more products please go to as they have the complete list and pricing of their products.

My Bangkok Thailand Travel Wish List

I am always fascinated with Thailand's vast cultural and modern architecture. I always wish that someday I could travel Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya and Chiang Mai my top 3 on my list to visit. While I was browsing my friends facebook photo. I stumble upon their pictures in Bangkok Thailand. Here are some of the photo's I was able to grab to share with you.

 I would say that the Thailanders were able to maintain their cultural heritage while they are expanding their modernization. It is indeed important to keep and maintain such world heritage not only for student to study but for everyone to understand once culture.

 The architectural design of this cultural heritage is really amazing. I would say if given the chance to visit Thailand I would definitely write all my experience because looking at the pictures give me goosy. I am sure my eyes would pop out amazingly because of this beautiful architectures.

 When you go to Thailand I am sure that there's so much to visit and that you have to squeeze everything on your travel plan. I am sure I would need more time in order for me to enjoy the said place.

Another reason why I wanted to visit Thailand is for me to ride the elephant. hahaha I am sure I would be so excited and so thrilled to have this one of a kind experience. I am so amazed on how this big elephant works hand in hand with people.

Oh see they're sweet!

Of course one shouldn't miss the food of Thailand. Mind you they should be spicy. hahaha

Another one that completes my Bangkok Thailand market is of course buying some stuff in a boat. Its their flaoting market.

Above all of course is their night flee market. I want to try that too.

Travelling Manila: Luneta Park

After exploring the wonders of Intramuros in Manila, my friend Anton and I decided to move out and start exploring the nearby Park.

This park is again very significant in the life of the Filipino people because this was the place where Philippines National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal was shot by the Spanish. Rizal was the author of the famous Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. It was believed that this book triggered the Spanish to finally seize him and sentenced him to death. The book and his death also awaken the heart desire for freedom of the Filipinos. It is also the place where GOMBURZA or the 3 priest name Gomez, Burgos and Zamora.

This has already changed. Today it is already a beautiful park in memory of the Filipino who died in this place.  So it was named after the Jose Rizal and was called Rizal Park where his shrine stands exactly where he was shot by the Spaniards. Nowadays this park is otherwise known as Luneta Park.

 Luneta Park is one of the many attractions of Manila.

At the heart of the park is the Monument of Rizal.

Near the Rizal’s Monument is the LIGHT AND SOUND Complex

Manila Ocean Park is also located in Luneta Park. It is highly recommended for those who love marine wildlife.

 Of course the newly renovated Rizal Children’s Park provides a one of a kind entertainment to kids.

Travelling PASAY! The Premier Gateway to the Philippines

Last May 12, 2012 it was my friend’s Birthday (Anton). Since I work at night we decided to go out at night and visit the SM Mall of Asia. Sometimes, it is better to go there at night to avoid the warm ocean breeze most especially for me where I have little patience under the sun. hehehe

We decided to watch a movie, unfortunately that time we don’t feel watching the movies available. So we decided to just go around and do some window shopping and maybe spotting some items that we could buy when budget permits.
Photo care-of Izza Santos

After few hours we went out the mall maybe do some stargazing and to add it more the different lights adorn the MOA Park. The laughter of children playing on these beautiful rides scattered along the stretch of the park. Along with these are the songs played by the bands in the bar symphonized by the splashes sea water hitting the sea wall.

After long walk from window shopping to walking along the park and stargazing we decided to stop by a restaurant named Aling Marsha Dampa Resturant. Of course if you go out we don’t just don’t go out and tire ourselves out. After that tiring refreshing walk it is time for us to grab something to munch.

We never tried Dampa before. So we decided to just try it and have a feel of it. At least to have a totally new experience. I think it is always good to try something new once in a while.

Below is my top picks that I recommend worth visiting in Pasay City.

1. Nayong Pilipino is a theme park that show cases the different cultural group and racial groups in the Philippines. This theme park is located near Manila International Airport. If you are in Mall of Asia or anywhere in EDSA one can just take a bus going to MIA (it will only cost you Php 12.00 depending on your location) or one can take a passenger jeepney if you are along Rizal Park or Taft Avenue (fare would range from Php 8.00 to Php 15.00) depending on your location)

2. Cultural Center of the Philippines 

3. Folk Arts Theater

Best Summer Style Collage

My colleague in the office sends me a link last night. Thanks Kessa for sharing this to me. So when I wasn’t doing anything I curiously opened it. I learned that it was a contest giving its followers an opportunity to mix and match any of the Mega World items given to form a Summer Style.

It was a perfect timing for me to think of a look or style that I can use during our upcoming company outing. So I started browsing and selecting from the items given. I realized it is fun matching and imagining how it would look like on me. (Hope Megaworld Lifestyle Mall would give it to me hehe)
