Time

(forgive the title.I'm not good in making titles.pero promise pinagisipan ko yan.haha)
I was supposed to be meeting with somebody for work today but he didn't show up because of some important personal matters. I ended up doing window shopping. I saw lots of things which will be added on my bucket list. A jacket from Zara is what I'm really dying to buy but I think it will take years for me to avail it.lol.

Anyway, boyfriend surprised me with a gift. A wrist watch. Amazed ang lola nyo kasi wala namang special event or something. I never really bought myself a good watch. Kung meron man, yung mga pepetsugin lang so this one's really a treasure. Ipapamana ko pa to sa future apo ko.lol. Thank you bibs! ♥♥♥
So this is what I wore today.

power and beauty of Bangui Windmills

Finally my wish to see windmills in the flesh(oo. parang tao lang) came true! I was teary-eyed upon seeing the place.The scene is breathtakingly beautiful. For one year I've been planning and doing research about the place and here I am standing under the giant windmills. The long wait was so worth it.
These giant windmills are located along the shores of Bangui, Ilocos Norte. A project built by the Marcoses to provide electricity to some towns in Ilocandia. Now, it is one of the most visited spots in Ilocos Norte with beauty and power combined.

I wish we have one in Manila to blow away the scourging heat in the city.(Okay, that was exaggerated . I was thinking of a giant electric fan. hehe)

Discover Vigan

We reached Ilocos region earlier than expected. It was only 4pm when we arrived in Vigan. The streets were quiet and calm. The lights made the place so romantic.Vigan is one of the Spanish colonial towns in Philippines so everything is vintage. We would love to stay a little longer but we were so hungry and we have to leave and look for a restaurant.

This is Calle Crisologo at dawn.

On our way home, we dropped by Vigan again to buy souvenirs and see the place at daytime.Now it's a little crowded. Tourists enjoy taking photos of the old buildings and the likes.

Paoay Church

On our way to Pagudpud, we passed by this magnificent Paoay Church also known as "Earthquake Baroque". It is the best epitome of earthquake-resistant churches in the Philippines.Thus making it one of the sturdy churches in the world. I am always fascinated with old churches. I believe they were built with passion and hard work. Kudos to our ancestors who built this beautiful church. A must visit in Laoag,Ilocos Norte.

I would love to have my wedding here (why not kung di lang malayo).

I heart Pagudpud

This is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Well, I have never been to Boracay but my friends say it's like one. Our 10hr trip was so worth it. We stayed in Saud Beach and in Blue Lagoon. These two are the treasures of Pagudpud. But I strongly recommend Blue Lagoon. It's so untouched and virgin. God truly did a good job!

Frutti Froyo

Right after our weekend grocery, we passed by a froyo store in Alabang. I love yogurt but I haven't tried  the frozen one. The place is very cozy and colorful. It's interior design is love. They have this amazing concept wherein you can create and design your own froyo. You can mix as many toppings as you want. The price depends on the weight. So that's what I ate on my cheat day.haha
