Off to the Philippines! I'll be back!

Hi Bellas,


I wanted to make sure to write this post so that you wouldn't think I fell off the face of the Earth. I've been talking about this trip for months...but today I'm off on a plane. First off, I'm heading to San Francisco for my brother's law school graduation. I'll be there only a few days...hopefully enough time to hit up the Asian Markets to pick up some fab cosmetics and skincare stuff.




On Sunday, I'm headed to the Philippines! I know there are a lot of Pinays representing on the blog scene, what what! This is my first trip since I was like 2 years old...so it's a big trip for me. It's just going to be me and the parents so it will probably be pretty tame (you probably won't catch me at the clubs, lol)...but I'm really looking forward to connecting with my roots and getting lots of Pulveron, Filipino memorabilia and cheap lashes, lol.


While I'm gone I'll probably have limited access to the internet...so no new posts or videos for at least 2.5 weeks. My boyfriend will probably be weeding out emails, but best to wait till I get back if you need to email me. However, I may drop into twitter here and there and say hi!


I wish I had planned a Manila meetup but hit me up at makeupbyren@yahoo.com if you want to meet up! I'll be there for the first week...oh and don't shoot me but I don't understand or speak the native language (blame it on my school guidance counselors telling my parents it would confuse me to be bilingual).


Till next time (be back in early June), Ciao Bellas!

Have fun!! I went to the Philippines last summer and had an AMAZING time...and also gained 10 pounds, so be careful, haha! That lechon and leche plan (sp?) will sneak up on you. =) I went on the river boat ride through some waterfalls and while I was taking pics of the scenery, some people were taking pics of me! Apparently they had never seen a black person in person before! =P

Have a great trip and congrats to your bro!

Hi, I'm Filipina too!:) I love polvoron, but it tends to get sticky inside your mouth so be careful not to choke, okay? Heehee. Have fun!!:) Try our beaches!!^_^ I recommend El Nido or Club Paradise in Palawan.^_^

How exciting! I hope you have a wonderful experience. I'm black and filipina... went to the Philippines in 2000 for the first time to "connect". It was an awesome experience but a little rough at first. There is a certain level of poverty that I wasn't expecting. Took me a few days to adjust but then I enjoyed the 2 months I was there sooo much. My fave place of all was Boracay! Go if you get the chance! Also... for some stupid reason my mom was told the EXACT same thing about teaching us Tagalog. Why did they listen??? It's so untrue... Anyhow, I hope you have a great time...oh, and be SUPER careful at the airport with your belongings.

Chrissy said...

Wow, what a guidance counselor, telling your parents that it would confuse you. It's okay though that you don't understand the native language...I hope you don't get lost!!

Haha. Have fun in the Philippines, and yes get LOADS of whatever cheap goodies you can find!! :) New follower here.
