Words, Art, Love and Life: A Visual Diary

Me: “You’re always saving me.” Art: “This is what I’m here for.”         All photos from this post were taken during the SIKKA Art Fair on March 20, 2017 in Bastakiya Quarter, one of Dubai’s old historical neighborhoods. Being a creatives enthusiast myself, I am and will always be drawn to the arts in whatever form they may be. Through this visual diary of words and mixed media projects, I hope I have ignited a spark of  ...

Hong Kong in Photos: Where It All Started

Ever wondered how my love for travelling started? My first experience with traveling abroad was to Hong Kong with my family back in October 2011. Since then, I knew in my heart that it’s going to be a part of my life forever. For Kent and me, it was our first trip together too and my first time to bring around my first and only DSLR camera. So many firsts, right? Looking back, I’m glad to have captured some of the best moments of our trip.   May I present: HONG KONG, A  ...

MMW Vlog 01: Paris

Hey guys! I recently launched my very own YouTube channel last April 1st so for those of you who haven’t had the chance to view it yet, here it is. I’m currently into travel vlogging and I really look up to those YouTubers who are able to capture their adventures in their own creative ways. So I took it upon myself to push my artistic pursuits further, and in order to do that, why not take my memory-keeping to the next level? It’s been a year since our last Eurotrip and as  ...

‘Tis the Season to Create

December 30, 2016  | Today is very special because it marks a milestone in my creative pursuits as a blogger, a first of many I hope. May I present a one-of-a-kind collaboration that Kent and I did with our good friend, Jason Burgos. This fun shoot was actually inspired by the rustic holiday decor that I’ve set up this year and a New Darlings blog post by Robert and Christina (one of my my favorite couple instagrammers). And because I hoped to have a piece of this inspiration forever,  ...

The Truckers DXB Experience

I’ve been living far from the city scene, tucked away in rural Al Ain that’s why when I get the chance to spend an awesome afternoon in a food truck event, I get excited! Truckers DXB is a food community that brings together truckers and their local home grown food from all over the emirate of Dubai. It’s currently on its second season and opens its doors to the public every Saturday at different parks and tourist spots. With lots of gourmet menu to choose from, live music  ...

Rustic Holiday Feels

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. -Charles Dickens     I’ve always loved the country rustic vibe and so for this year’s Christmas tree theme, I chose natural elements as trimmings, recycled old ornaments from last year and used raw materials such as burlap and  jute twine to set an overall au naturale tone. I also pitched in some lace features and vintage ribbons to soften the mood and give an almost Parisian shabby chic feel. Wrapped  ...
