A Re-introduction

Well HELLO there! 🙂

So I’m back. I’ve been attempting to “resurrect” this beloved blog of mine for quite some time now, and I’m proud of myself for having the guts to FINALLY start again. “Start” as in finally type anything just so I can gain my blogging momentum back — using my very old laptop that hasn’t even seen the light of day for a very looong time (read: I’ve had it since 2008, it’s still running on Windows Vista, and it can’t even support Internet Explorer 8 — which I only found out today when I tried to upgrade it! That’s how #oldschool it is! Hahaha!).

Anyway, if you’ve been with this blog journey of mine from the very start, you probably know that I’m fond of wordy posts with pictures. Sometimes, there aren’t even pictures. So if this is your first time to visit my blog, consider that a heads-up that this is no fashion/photo blog. Hehe.

And speaking of “themes,” you’ll notice that I’ve updated my header with what I’d like to focus more on this time around. Bear with me if it looks makalat, but that’s because I did it myself and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 😉 Of course this is still a PERSONAL blog but to give you a gist, The Lady Is In 2.0 will now focus more on these categories:

BEAUTY – anything and everything that makes life beautiful, but mostly this is about the latest makeup/skincare products I’m loving.

FOOD – restaurants, food crazes, even my not-so-occasional French macaron and milk tea indulgence. Enough said.

TRAVEL – three words: My. Featured. Travelers! (Click HERE.) I’ve started this little blog project in 2012 and since then, I try my best to look for people with wanderlust who are willing to share and also allow us to “travel” through their experiences. So if you know someone (or it can be YOU), please let me know. 😀 Aside from that, this category will also include my own travels — from little discoveries within the metro to the-now-elusive international trips, to the-more-frequent staycations and the like!

Aside from those three, I’ll also post book/movie reviews from time to time. 🙂

And that’s pretty much it. To all my friends who’ve told me that they miss my “blogging,” thanks so much and this is for all of you. To all my new readers (and friends), WELCOME! I hope you’ll be convinced to join me in this new blog journey of mine. In the meantime, you can check out my blog history on the right sidebar and read some of my previous posts (while I start to type the next blog entry after this one!).

Back in the blogging business,

Laws of Distraction

It seems Mika, Marta and I have become de facto travel buddies this year because aside from going to Brunei last January, we went to Ho Chi Minh a few days ago for another 3 days 2 nights adventure. Unlike our previous trip however, we were accompanied by Mika’s two older sister – Ate Anne and Ate Malou – and our dear friend Maxine.

The vacation planning was done from scratch. We booked a cheap airfare courtesy of Cebu Pacific Air (again) and hotel accommodation at Agoda. We chose Grand Silverland Hotel & Spa located at District 1 near Ben Thanh Market. As for the tour and hotel transfers, I was able to contact Buffalo Tours for it. We were happy at their service because everything was well arranged even in such short notice.

The Travel

As expected, the 2.5 hours travel is another red eye flight. For some reason, I was happy…
