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.
Independence Day? No not, but Escolta Day it is! :)
Statement Tees saying:
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.
Say hello to my Escolta buddies! Jessa and Daisy. Regina building is on the background. It’s selfie day!
Say hello also to our EYEBAGS! :))
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*)
…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. :)
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! :))
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)
Some play of lines at the atrium.
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?
Blurry interior tropical garden.
The bar and the pool compliment each other.
View by the beach. A little tilted view here.
Overlooking Hotel Nikko. (One of my best Guam photographs)
The beach and the sky. I’m spotting the silver lining in between.
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.
Say hello to the sophisticated Louis Vuitton outlet in DFS Galleria Guam.
…and here is the simple and classy Prada (as always) :)
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)
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.
Hello to this cute bus stop along Tumon.
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”.
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.
