“The Total Performer”

He may be the youngest in terms of age, but 17-year-old Darren is more than capable of holding his own in the company of veteran singers like the other Aces. Darren started singing at the tender age of two and rose to fame in the Philippines after placing second in season one of The Voice Kids in 2014. His first album “Darren” debuted at No. 1 and has since been certified Double Platinum; his second album “Be With Me” also went to No. 1 and is now certified Platinum.

Jona’s first studio album On My Own turned Gold, and her self-titled second album yielded a hit single in “Help Me Get Over.” It went on to win Song of the Year at the 2014 PMPC Star Awards for Music. A year later, she made headlines when she transferred to the Kapamilya network and changed her stage name.

Touchdown to Takeoff Outfits: South Cebu

Picking a fabric with travel friendly features is a different story. It exudes your style but eludes you from a fat luggage. Are you ready for the next takeoff?

One of the most touristic things to do in the destination is to dress up like a visitor while being not too flamboyant to intimidate the locals. That garb which gives you comfort, function and the desired immersive vibe of your own flair of style while en route.

This series is dedicated to the sets of outfit one can get inspiration from while travelling. Every episode is also infused with ideas you can add in your itinerary like food and cafe stops, tourist spots, and tech solutions for services while traveling, which might help you from touchdown to takeoff. Our first touchdown, South Cebu!

TOUCHDOWN LOOK

Macchiato Espresso and Bulgogi Pizza to kick off the trip! (The Pyramid, IT Park Garden)

0092cac8-0a9e-45fd-8cc0-7553690d7fbaA baseball cap, a vertically textured tee, jeans and my all-time favorite tasseled loafer wrapped my touchdown-to-first-stop look. I also brought with me a jacket which complements the shades of the cap, the shirt and the shoes. The cap, the jacket and the jeans insulate heat while at the airport and during in-flights, especially during early morning flights. Easy to slip-on foot wear like this gives you less hassle during the airport security procedures upon check in.


af36360c-c899-47af-bec2-fbb3917f1581Wandering around the Queen City of the South was made smoother using Grab Car. This was my first time to depend on the app all my transportation needs in a trip. (1) The rates are fixed no matter how heavy would the traffic be towards your destination. This also deters the possibility that your driver might try to take the longer route to charge you bigger from the ideal rate. That is very important to travelers who are new to the place. (2) The en route comfort and exclusivity. You seem to have a personal driver and own car. What is a few more tens in exchange of that convenience?

HOT AND HOLY IN SOUTH CEBU

Hot Morning Stops : Whale Shark Watching and Tumalog Falls, Oslob

I chose a low U tank and a printed swimming shorts to enjoy both the ocean with the sharks and the cold spring from the waterfalls. I wore a long sleeve polo over the tank-short combo for both style and protection. The entire look shows a monochrome green tropical look finished with a dark brown Panama hat without its bow.

84820c0d-4c04-46ab-82d1-05860e452ea6The long sleeves guarded the skin from the pinching sun, possible skin irritants from the air during motorcycle ride (had several experience from previous trips) and plant swords while trekking towards the falls. I easily rolled these sleeves when it got humid while it served as a bathrobe every after the water romance.

ROADSIDE LOCAL FOODS : Squid Adobo from a Carenderia, tropical fruits and the famous Lechon from Carcar Public Market


Holy After-Lunch Visit: Simala Shrine, Sibonga

Just like visiting in any religious tourist spot, we have to be in a respectful drape. Thus, I folded a pair of smart linen pieces for this church visit which was light to carry in my back pack early that morning.

This was my favorite outfit for this trip. The entire look showed a smart casual appeal made touristy because of the linen material. Fortified such appeal with the leather shoes and the same hat I used earlier that day, but now with a hankie that serves as its bow.

928a2751-1022-4445-b713-29e016762198

This was the most relaxing part of the trip. I thanked for the blessings and surpassed trials from 2018, both in the family affairs and corporate matters. I also asked for wisdom on my plans for 2019. I was relieved, thankful and confident after praying. The feeling was as light and breathable as the linen that touches my skin every time the wind blows as I strolled throughout the vast temple.

Spent few more minutes taking photos of the impressive European design of the church and of course some Gram-worthy photos of the place as my background.


LINEN IN THE CITY

f5bc7205-bacb-4398-8c66-8c09ee36b1c8The third day started late. After dressing up, we tried Gibb’s for lunch before heading to SM Seaside. The Spicy Honey Garlic wings were my favorites. Urban Cebu was hot and humid that day. Thus, I chose to wear another linen pair. This time, I opted a long sleeved linen shirt since part of our itinerary was to visit the Sto Niño Basilica later that day (but unfortunately, it was already closed by the time we arrived. TIP: Be there not later than 5PM).

Linen is a travel friendly fabric. Apart from it is light in your luggage, it is also easy to dry. I washed my linen pants that night as I arrived in my stay since it was stained with chocolates I ate during the long bus rides. Don’t judge me. Smirk.

I met with a close friend from high school at a Cake Shop inside SM Seaside. My chum recommended it so eagerly and persuaded me to catch up over cakes and coffee. I loved the Mango Pandan slice.


TAKEOFF LOOK

c89c6d72-3198-4386-83ec-ed2804ce7541A cream tee, jeans and the leather loafer sealed my last-stop-to-takeoff look. Accented it with a hankie-turned-to-scarf to appeal with the French ambiance of La Vie Parissiene. Yes, Airport Looks tend to be with similar style pieces. Same material, same heat insulating purpose while inside a wintry airport and aircraft.

It was my second visit here. Chose the enclosed part of the restaurant this time. Enjoyed the night with Shanpelino and pizza. Shot some photos, did online updating and reminisced funny travel stories from the previous days with the team while sipping some Moscato in betweens.

bad978f0-d6f7-4073-99f5-97e644e7856e

We ended the night at 10 PM to prepare for our flight by 6AM. After packing up my things, I sneaked for some alone time with a cocktail at a nearby bar from our stay. Drafted my prognostications for 2019 on my phone’s Notes. On top of it was “Sell handsomely, Travel handsomely. Then, I Grab-ed our ride to the airport.

We all search for ideas of what to wear on the specific stops of our trip. Picking a fabric with travel friendly features is a different story. It is in fact a travel-style hack. It exudes your style but eludes you from a fat luggage. Are you ready for the next takeoff?

Avara : A Not-for-everyone Maldivian-themed Resort in Taytay, Palawan

Aside from the villas and casitas, Avara members will also have an exclusive access to a two-bedroom yacht with crew for an overnight stay or for cruising around the island and nearby areas.

Imagine this: The sound of waves crashing on the shore and the sunlight peeking through the window wake you up on a lazy Saturday morning. You slowly open your eyes, afraid that you’re just in the middle of a dream. But you’re not. You stand up as you feel the gentle sea breeze touch your face. You go out of the porch and look at the horizon. You take your time to enjoy the beauty of the blue skies and the deep sea. The yacht will be waiting for you whenever you’re ready, anyway. That’s the promise of Avara Nature & Yacht Club—the easy life of the seaside. 

Established by the Seaside Premier Development Corporation, Avara is the first of its kind nature and yacht club located at Calauag Bay in Taytay, which was Palawan’s first capital.

The plan for the exclusive resort was formally unveiled at the Grand Hyatt Manila led by its President and CEO Ms. Veronica C. Young, Nov. 13, 2018. 

“After many months of sailing and voyaging aboard bangkas and riding waves, we found the perfect island in Taytay, Palawan to be the home of our pioneering project. It is with a great pleasure to present to you tonight, Avara Nature and Yacht Club – the first of its kind in the Philippines, bridging the middle class to the lifestyle of the rich and famous. As Seaside Premier Development Corporation’s flagship project, we aim to redefine seaside living, where nature meets luxury,” she said in her opening remarks. 

Coastal living redefined 

Avara, which means Sunshine Island, is an eco-luxurious resort that use solar panels as a source of renewable energy, utilize a recycled water treatment system, maximize a hydroponic garden, and take advantage of other eco-materials available.

Its accommodation is inspired by the Maldivian architecture. Members can choose to stay in a one-bedroom Water Villa with jacuzzi, two-bedroom Water Villa with private infinity pool, or one- or two-bedroom Beach Casitas.

Aside from the villas and casitas, Avara members will also have an exclusive access to a two-bedroom yacht with crew for an overnight stay or for cruising around the island and nearby areas. Avara’s yacht features two cabins and a family room in the lower deck; a living room, a kitchen and dining area, and a plunge pool in the main deck; and an open dining space and a sun deck in the fly bridge. 

The Avara Island has nothing but the best facilities for its members. Guests will first experience the Avara service upon their arrival at the dock or the harbor. But the ultra-luxurious resort also has a helipad for those who will be coming in by air. VIPs also have the option to skip the reception and go straight to their accommodation.  

There will also be a boardwalk open for development to the entrepreneurial Avara members. Meaning, Avara members can also be concessionaires to open their own business—it could be a coffee shop, a grocery store, a bakery, a souvenir stop, and similar ventures. As support to the member-concessionaires, Avara will ensure that the business will be the island’s lone supplier for the specific product. 

The island can also accommodate as many as 100 guests at their main dining area and at the grill restaurant. But guests will have more dining options since Avara includes a poolside bar, a seaside bar and lounge, picnic areas, and private dining venues. 

Avara is fully equipped with a gym, a water sports center, a tennis court, and a golf course to those who want to keep up with their fitness routine. 

The island also has a playroom and nursery, spa and massage cabanas, a bonfire area, a clinic with an in-house doctor and nurse, and a gaming area for the enjoyment of the Avara members.  

At any given time, Avara will host up to 300 members to ensure quality service.

As a promised paradise for those who love the beach, Avara offers a myriad of water action such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, jet-skiing, banana boat riding, stand-up paddle boarding, wind surfing, scuba diving, island hopping, and fishing in coordination with neighbor islands. The resort also provides options for on land activities like trekking, biking, and vegetable picking.

There are also a lot of activities that Avara members can enjoy outside its vicinity. After all, Taytay, Palawan boasts of picturesque sites like the Canique Waterfalls, the Lake Manguao, the Irrawaddy Dolphins in Malampaya Sound, the Fuerza de Santa Isabel, and the Church of Santa Monica. Taytay is also hope to a paradise-like hidden valley that gives tourists a bird’s eye view of the pristine, idyllic coastal areas of the municipality.
