OOTD: Girly Grunge

OOTD: Girly Grunge

Laid-back. Careless. Care-free.



The sun just peeked out for a little while and allowed me to take snaps of my outfit yesterday. I don’t want to participate in the rainy season, hence, this ensemble. Grunge top c/o SM Surplus Shop, Pink H&M Denim Shorts, and Denim Heels, Abercrombie & Fitch Fur Jacket hanging ’round my waist. It’s not summer here, so you might say my outfit isn’t relevant, but it’s summer s0mewhere in the world. ;)

 

I wish I could be this happy everyday...

Suffice it to say that I know next to nothing about Malaysian food, and my first encount...

The new SM Marketmall at Dasmariñas, Cavite

A mall, a palengke, or both?

Who would have thought that a market in our country can have a facade that could pass for a shopping mall? From outside, this yellow building looks like any ordinary community mall, with the conspicuous SM logo in front. Apparently, this “marketmall” is a two-in-one place: a public market (palengke) and a mall!

What used to be a former Kadiwa Center is now a marketmall, thanks to the public-private partnership between ...
