MABUHAY! I can't believe it! It's been a week since I left London! Ho-hummm, goodbye is such a bittersweet thing, they say. A portion of my heart weeps whether I'm leaving London or Manila. I guess that's just the way it is when you love the place and the people! Moving on, I think it's such a good day to count my blessings and yes, I'm audacious enough to blog about them too!

Remember how I dreaded the long flight time? Guess what? It's not too bad, guys! My friend, S, went with me at Heathrow airport. We were having our dinner {mine's fish and chips} and it occurred to me that I didn't have a seat yet! Good thing he suggested that I do the web check-in {I should have thought of that!} but nothing to worry about. All went well. I got seat 15C and it was my first time to be on the aisle seat {I fancy window seat better, sniff!} but I don't have much of a choice.

Then, surprise surprise! I discovered that AISLE SEAT IS BEST for long haul flights! Why? It's because you can use the toilet without disturbing your seatmate plus you can stretch your feet just fine. THANK YOU LORD! After my 6th attempt, I cracked the code! I was overjoyed to know this people! If you've been in a 10+ hour flight, you can definitely relate.

TIP: Drink loads of water. You don't have to be thirsty. Just drink every hour. Next, bring your comfy clothes. Change your clothes 30 mins. after the take-off. I can talk on and on but I think it's best to create a blog post specially for this!

I've spent my first Sunday back at a hotel with my family. I've been reminded by this quote:

“We spend money that we do not have, on things we do not need, to impress people who do not care.”
― Will Smith

I don't want to be one of those people. And I'm trying my best to realign my goals on people and things which matter. I won't lie, I've had a terrible week due to a nagging migraine thanks to jet lag, but that won't stop me from saying THANK YOU to JESUS for being so faithful from then till now.

Part of the bonding was shopping of course! Wee, Zara is on sale {I think they still are as of press time}. Had a foot spa and mani/pedi with Mum too. Oh, this is life :) PS: On the picture above. Mum of course and Jay {ze brother}. Daddy is camera shy. 

Some buzz about my OOTD after the jump!

I've worn this crochet top almost every weekend this London summer! And I'm determined to wear this number some more here in Manila! Nothing groundbreaking. White cami + crochet top. Distressed shorts. Havaianas. Bag is from Zara and watch {model is Full Blooded} is from Swatch. This is comfortable, personified!

Stay happy and grounded, bellas! -CMK 


  1. Do you work in London and just visiting PH every so often? Envy you. <3

    1. Hello thanks for dropping by :) Yep that's true! <3

  2. I agree with you.

    I just discovered this aisle seat last year. Generally I opt for window side. :-) Then last year when we (Mom, my son and I) were travelling for a long 9 hours flight, we were given the seats on the middle row (well I forgot to mention that we needed a window side during our check-in).

    To my surprise, it was more convenient and stress free.

    Going to the loo was never a problem. You don't disturb the passenger next to you.
