Lounging at an almost empty hotel on a weekday out of town trip. Wearing my newly bought lightest monster and a jumper dress double my size. Also ate a volcanic eruption cake and mango shake while reading Elle mag. Photos were taken by my 11 year old nephew who surprisingly chose that gold Casio for himself - I sense a little photgrapher/fashion kid in the family!
And then we went to Boutique to have lunch. The baby back was heaven as well as the Bulalo and other Pinoy dishes served. B's modern interior and exterior pushed me to do another mini photo shoot. But this time snapped by V, dearest sister wearing sparkly skull you see.
Lastly, I was overwhelmed by the greenery which is pretty obvious, evolved to yet another mini shoot. Visited a tiny chapel on top of a hill while enjoying the cold weather for the last time. All in all, it was a perfect day to laze around.
Wearing a thrifted gamuza moss green jumper dress, old green-ish top, Soule Phenomenon shoes, vintage Versace scalloped shades, Tag Heuer gold watch, mom's vintage black stone necklace with gold ribbon and vintage oval wood painted bag.
Banteay Srei is a beautiful 10th-century Hindu Temple built largely of a red sandstone with magnificent intricate carvings like wood. Banteay Srei which means Citadel of Women or Citadel of Beauty is probably related to the intricacy of the carvings surrounding the structures. It is said that the reliefs on this temple are so delicate that they could only have been carved by the hand of a woman.
Tons of beautiful set of photos you'll see ahead, so enjoy!
Ta Prohm Temple, built in the mid-12th century is the undisputed capital of the Kingdom of the Trees'. Stones enveloped with moss and gigantic roots snakes through the ruins make it ethereal in aspect and conjures up a romantic aura. No wonder the haunted charm of the place captured the attention of many most especially Miss Angelina Jolie.
Angkor Wat, means City Temple, is the world's largest religious building and has become a symbol of Cambodia. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs and for the numerous guardians spirits adorning its walls.
Oh, I also gained a lot of new friends! Amazing draping skills and mix of bold colors. I love how my outfits blended as always. Kingdom of Cambodia is so inspiring in so many ways.
The floating villages of Chong Khneas are rich with life and overflowing with culture. With more than 5,000 residents living along the waterway, this is by far the best way to get an up close and experience the beauty of local Khmers and Vietnamese. Kingdom of Cambodia is truly a remarkable place to explore!
Layering in a thrifted long dress (under), sister's woven tribal skirt (over), Topshop ballet flats, LV bag, mom's vintage Fendi shades, sister's very old chain body bag, mom's silver bib necklace from Tibet and twisted coral and gold necklaces I keep stealing from her since I was in 5th grade. I'm really digging the craftsmanship of the coral.
