Zoobic Adventure with the Nike Harbour Canvas

The sudden invitation got me all excited. :)

Enough for me to take out a new pair. Haha! 

You see, my Tita Virgie got a very good rate for the Penthouse Suite at The Lighthouse Hotel in Subic.

So that means I couldn't miss this chance to go on a splendid vacation.

But more than the posh accommodation, I really wanted to go to Zoobic to commune with nature. Haha!

It's like hitting two birds with one stone. I love it!. 

So anyway, my most awaited day came so I took out a new pair to take with me in this adventure.

The Nike Harbour Canvas...Para bagay na bagay ang harbour sa Lighthouse.  Yun na! 

A cute slip on with one of the softest cushioned insoles I have ever experienced.

The cool blue shade and the contrasting white hue are reminiscent of the pristine waters of the beach facing the hotel. 

Casual. Trendy. So me. So Go! Haha!

Anyway, upon getting to Subic after a 3-hour drive via SCTEX (where a portion of the road seems like it was lifted from the scene in the horror flick Wrong Turn), my family and I finally arrived in Subic.

As you know, apart from shoes, I totally love coffee. So breakfast at Xtremely Xpresso was a must. 

Check out this serendipitous cup I got. Swak! 

After the sumptuous feast, we headed off to Zoobic, a 30-minute drive from where we were. 

My, My...I was greeted by this pair of large Toucans. Quite a sight to behold.

In fairness, I didn't have to travel far to feed camels. This baby is such a cutie. :)

The Tiger Adventure. I'm not really much into gore and stuff but seeing a huge cat gobble on free snacks was something I enjoyed despite the deafening screams of those beside me. Haha! Hello, may cage naman di ba?!

I love this shot. Feeling ko photographer na ako. Haha! 

Pretty snake. Pretty Deadly.

Oh and the lazy crocs. That one behind me seemed to love the picture-taking. Smiling. Haha!

So after seeing a hundred animals or so, we decided to head back to our hotel. 

But of course, we didn't get to rest at once.

Because I had to pester them on getting a beautiful shot of the horizon with the sunset backdrop. 

But hey, it was all worth it. :) 

The coffee, the zoo adventure, the fabulous hotel...and my Nike Harbour Canvas. :)

MOA-Eye Candy: The Adidas Micropacer

I recently got invited to try out the MOA-Eye. And at first I was like, "MOA what?!"

Apparently, it was the tallest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines.

Quite similar to the ones in London (which incidentally carries the same name-sake, so much for originality---but then again, it's more fun in the Philippines. Haha!) and in Singapore (Singapore Flyer), this Ferris Wheel allows you to enjoy the breathtaking view of the bay and...the billboards at the Mall of Asia. A 10 minute-oh-so-slow ride that makes you think whatever happened to the P150 you paid. Haha! But not bad, for a first timer.:))

I got really excited so I brought out another pair which I haven't worn yet. 

The Adidas Micropacer. :)

MOA-Eye Candy with its colorful stripes that commands attention and admiration. :)

More of a running shoe actually that has a built in timer for accurate pacing.

Laces hidden underneath, which makes it an ideal running pair minus the worries about loose strings. 

Highly versatile as the colors match well with any top or bottom possible. 

I threw in a casual shirt and jeans and voila...I was all set.:)

My, my....the MOA-Eye was really tall up close.

Here's the shot of me on board one of the airconditioned gondolas, enjoying the high life...literally...at over 180 ft something above the ground. 

Now that's a most-welcome break from my usual busy, fast-paced life.

With the Adidas Micropacer.:)

Go for the Gold: Tiger Limited Edition Gold Slip On

I have always been a go-getter.

Believing that nothing can stand in my way, I have always managed to rise above challenges and be the best that I can be in the process.

Like what my former bosses have told me: Always go for the gold.

And upon seeing this pair at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong...I once again followed my mentors' advice. 

Take a look at this golden pair from Tiger.

A limited edition slip on. :)

Hmmm...admittedly quite pricey but after trying it on, I was immediately convinced that it was well worth it.

I mean hello, it's not everyday that you stumble upon a gold pair of walkers that will give you the exact feeling of euphoria which Cinderella had when she wore those damn to-die-for glass shoes. Haha!

Who knows what golden opportunities this pair has for me? 

But more than anything, for a shoe collector like me, I think I have a struck a gold mine. :)
