Pale Sunshine

Yesterday, I went on my first summer outing for the year. It was a lovely resort in Cavite, Philippines but it was more apparently intended for kids. If you’re looking for a place for your kids to enjoy at a very low price, this is the place to go. Qubo Qabana Resort and Hotel has a main pool with slides. The pool has a water level set at 4 feet max, good for those (above 4 feet) who don’t really know how to swim in deep waters (obviously). The resort also has another kiddie pool with mushroom falls, a few qubo cabana huts, a mini bar and grilling station. They also have hotel rooms and a private pool for their guests staying in. For more info, you may visit their site.

(Photos grabbed from the main site. I do not own the photos of the resort.)

Anyhow, as the sun’s rays have been intense as ever, I opted to wear something light (so I don’t get too hot under the sun) and something easy (and ready for swimming).

I’m wearing: Buttoned shirt (Folded & Hung), Black tank (SM Department Store), Board shorts (D Mall, Boracay), Aviator shades (Bench), Carryall Bag (Refill Men), Sportswatch (Timex), Flipflops (Havaianas)

I’ve always been drawn to these shades of white, kind of a bit lighter flesh tones. The red floral print in the board shorts grabs my attention. I got these pair of shorts a few months back when I went to Boracay for a late mid-year vacation.

And as you may see me often in, I took out my ever trusted black tank top and covered it with my (unbuttoned) buttoned shirt. I just adore the red lining on this shirt from Folded & Hung. It’s made of 100% light cotton so the fabric is so easy and comfy to wear on hot days like these.

I brought my another trusted piece of apparel, more like accessory, my aviator shades from Bench. We’ve been through a lot of trips together and they never fail me! 😉

Come back soon for more. I’ll be posting some of the other stuff we did at the resort soon. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the latest FU by CK.

No Gray Areas

Not everything in life is often black and white. It’s sometimes just too difficult to identify which we should choose, given the many philosophical and moral nature (big words) of things. A lot of fine lines are tread, and most often than not, we cross over if not just sit on the fence. But this blog post is nothing anywhere near life’s dilemma! Haha, sorry to disappoint. It’s about what style I aimed to hit. For my look, I opted to go for either black or white (with a touch of color) and in no way adding any shades of gray! I’m gunning for a light feel on a black and white template.

I’m wearing: White 3/4 sleeves buttoned shirt (Le Froge), Black tank (SM Department Store), White mid-length shorts (Mental), Black mid-cut chucks (Pony), Aviator shades (Bench)

To start my look, I pulled out my white Mental shorts and built my way around that piece. I love the red cross print on it so much, simply and precisely because it’s red. Red just appeals to me, it just does! And red on white makes it pop all the more.

Then I took out my all-around plain black tank from SM Department Store. And layered it with my old white buttoned shirt from Le Froge to match my shorts.

To finish the look, I wore a black mid-cut chucks from Pony which completes the black ‘n white style.

I tried to take off the buttoned shirt to show off some muscles but I think I failed on that area. But worry not, I’m working on it, knowing that Summer is shoving its heat and waves right in our faces, the gym is my new favorite hangout spot lately. (Will probably put up some gym wear look soon.)

And my shoot would not be complete without the floor shots! Booya!

And finally, to cap off a relaxing weekend shoot, won’t you lie down with me?

Oody’s Thai Halo-Halo

Went out tonight with a friend. It’s the first time I’d see her this year, and to think we work in the same office building. We went to Oody’s to grab something to eat. It’s been a year since we last ate here together.

She got our forever favorite Egg Noodle with Crab Meat. I wasn’t able to take a photo (my bad). I did take a photo of my Thai Halo-Halo dessert.

What’s nice about this dish is that you get to mix the ingredients yourself. Something like a DIY dish.

For something that only has 4 ingredients, it still tastes quite as exquisite as a great halo-halo should taste. It has Jackfruit, Nata de Coco, Red Bean, and Sweet Plum Fruit mixed into a bowl of ice shaving and milky sherbet.

Enjoy it at your nearest Oody’s Thai Rice Noodles ‘n Bar Branch. There’s one in Greenbelt. That’s the latest FU (Food Update) by CK.

The Examiner

Every year, it has been a tradition of mine to go back to my alma mater and administer the entrance exam as a well respected examiner.

The only thing is, I couldn’t disregard the fact that somehow, being an examiner doesn’t go well with my name!

Go figure!

I’m wearing: Buttoned shirt (New York 101) | Pants (Bench) | Glasses ( Tag Heuer) | Watch (Timex) | Shoes (Girbaud)
