Up North Weekend

The northern part of Cebu province is one of the places I have rarely been to. Except for the short stopover on the way to Bacolod and a weekend at Bantayan some years back, I have not been back. So for the long weekend that was, my boyfriend and I decided to go "up north" in the now-municipality of Bogo. The place also holds a special place in my heart because that's where one of my dear college friend, Leslie, resides. The weekend trip consisted only of walks around town, todo chika with Leslie and a pasta lunch from an Italian chef!

Day 1

Walking around the town plaza. They had a display of an old railcar, which used to transport sugarcanes. Sugarcanes also abound in Bogo.

Me wearing a vintage rayon maxi dress and my ever reliable Grendha sandals.

Behind me is a painting of Capitancillo, an island off Bogo, by a local artist, which I believe is the father-in-law of one of my college classmates.

My ever elusive boyfriend/photographer. :)

Day 2

I'm rocking a thrifted leather jacket, lace top bought at an online shop, cut-off Mango shorts and vintage braided belt with my favorite accessory, a vintage Pentax MV-1 film camera.

All photos are by my boyfriend. :P

  5. Love the polka dot dress you wore for EBEW. You look great in it. Thrifting is sometimes more rewarding than a trip to the mall, isn't it?
