Escolta is named after the “Escorts” that are escorting the public officials/politicians before. They happen to shout to call the escorts out. Escolta also have a lot of historical and architectural treasures. It was the center of trade before, and they are trying to revive it. #SelfiEscolta is an event organized to empower the people with knowledge and will to support rebuilding the glory days of Escolta.

First United Building and Regina Building. 

Honestly I can’t use photoshop that’s why I can’t remove those black spaghetti like cable wires right there.

image

Independence Day? No not, but Escolta Day it is! :)

Statement Tees saying:

rescuESCOLTA

revivESCOLTA

relivESCOLTA

Because #SelfieEscolta is an awareness event that states that Escolta is one of our most treasured “Calle/Kalye” along with other historical sites in the Philippines.

Old photographs for hipsters and photo-geeks. :)

Books turned into notebook covers :) Sadly I didn’t saw a “Little Prince” notebook cover, it’s my favorite book. If they have one I will surely grab it.

Fan photo with UKULELE PHILIPPINES. :)

"Para Po!" hahahaha who would do that on a Tranvia? (Wait am I right?) :)))) LOL 

Love this picturesque banners all over the place. :) Seems legit.

image

Say hello to my Escolta buddies! Jessa and Daisy. Regina building is on the background. It’s selfie day!

image

Say hello also to our EYEBAGS! :))

image

Played along this frame like architectural detail. (Trivia: Did you know that Daniel Padilla’s AMA commercial was taken here, and the Kopiko commercial too! Know that Coffee commercial with smileys. *wink wink*)

image

…and of course that’s me taking my OOTD. :))

As a whole the event is lots of fun and educational at the same time. I grabbed a pint of chocolate chip ice cream while walking, I’m too busy with my ice cream and I can’t barely take pictures. By the way if you happen to drop by Calle Escolta, make sure to try their ice cream and Empanadas! and have a great time. :)

Two-storey open function hall for my uncle’s resort. These are the elevations and perspectives for his option 2.

Function Hall # 3

I know I’m not that good when it comes to presenting my work on a digital manner, feel free to criticize if you want. It’s a project for my uncles resort, it is an open function hall for 100-150 pax.

Westin Hotel is one of the prettiest hotels here in Guam, we did not stay here tho. We’re just here for BRUNCH! Yum yum! Because as soon as I woke up after a not-so-deep-slumber (and we just landed before the sun rises) we headed here for a taste of Guam- TASTE BUFFET! :))

image

image

It is oval in plan, and I love how its pointed side faces the beach (maybe to diffuse wind current? not so sure about that HAHA)

image

Some play of lines at the atrium.

image

image

This is the lobby and I think I spotted some Cebu’s pride furniture here. The sofa set looks like a work of Kenneth Cobunpue, isn’t it? 

image

Blurry interior tropical garden.

image

image

image

The bar and the pool compliment each other.

image

View by the beach. A little tilted view here.

image

Overlooking Hotel Nikko. (One of my best Guam photographs)

image

The beach and the sky. I’m spotting the silver lining in between.

image

My nephew Franchesco and me. (I’m still holding a cone of ice cream from taste buffet.) HAHA.

I need a more decent tourist photo next time. HAHAHAHAHA

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY ME!

DFS Galleria is the one stop shop for all the fashionistas out there, because you can name all the elite brands you know, and you’ll surely find it here.

image

image

Say hello to the sophisticated Louis Vuitton outlet in DFS Galleria Guam.

image

…and here is the simple and classy Prada (as always) :) 

image

Coach is on the other side of the road, along with Gucci. They are under the Outrigger Hotel. (Wait I’m not pretty sure, but that’s how I see it. HAHA)

image

Honestly, I haven’t seen a Starbucks here. Yeah, honestly I didn’t but my cousin said that there is. Anyway, look at this HARD ROCK CAFE signage, it’s so huge. You really want to go inside to find out what they can offer.

image

Hello to this cute bus stop along Tumon.

image

The Souvenir Shop!

I already grabbed some pasalubongs on the first night. They seem to be cheap but when I think of it more.. it’s not. $100 is already almost 4.5k and I was shocked at the counter because I didn’t have a lot on my basket. HAHAHAHA so “Kuripot”.

image

Tadaaaa! It’s me, and my #OOTD on the streets of Guam. An on the spot tourist photo. HAHAHA

DYK? Guam has very low crime rate, you can walk around the streets and won’t worry anything about your safety. You can leave an iPhone on a store, come back later and still find it there. No wonder why a lot of Asian tourists are free and happy to walk, and they feel secure.

Blogging about my early summer in Guam is not that late isn’t it? Better late than never. :)

Day/Night 1 in Guam 03/21/2014

My cousin (Lucielle Guevarra-Valencia) toured me downtown, we took a walk and decided to grab some gelato. She said that DOLCE FRUTTI is her favorite. It is exactly in front of Louis Vuitton Guam in Tumon.

image

Cozy GREEN+BROWN interior. :)

image

I’m not sure how much are the Gelato in cones, but the “Piccolo” costs $3.75, “Medio” at $5.75, and $7.00 for Grande.

image

They have this huge spoon container that has a wide range of candy colored spoons for your Gelato. Guess what color I grabbed? :)

image

image

image

You’ll drool to their wide range of Gelato flavors, YUM YUM YUM! Plus, they have this “HELLO KITTY” flavored Gelato which is totally an eye candy. My cousin tasted it, but I decided not to. HAHA, I think it’s a bit sour.

image

Trust me, MINT+CHOCOLATE is a match made in heaven. That is why I always choose these two.

image

Voila! Amigos amigas, I LURVE DOLCE FRUTTI! Hello to my pink spoon there. I already forgot what my cousin got HAHA. (my bad)

image

So it’s my cousin and me with our fail mirror shot. (That flash tho)

As a whole, the experience and taste of Gelato is a blast! We even came back here days later because we can’t get enough. :)
