Game of Thrones Season 6 has ended and looks like the Khaleesi/Dragon Queen is finally conquering the seven kingdoms. This blog is my tribute to Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains,
Mother of Dragons and Protector of the Realm. That’s a lot for an introduction!

 

As an avid fan, I collaborated with my favorite Photographer, Cheny Santizas for for this Khaleesi-inspired shoot since Cheny is someone I can be very comfortable with when taking my fashion shots. I chose a less provocative clothing design (no cleavage of course) and I had my hair braided in Waterfalls by Cheny. She is not just my Photographer but also my hair stylist.

 

This flowy white dress depicts Khaleesi’s fashion in season 5. I chose brown flat sandals because Khaleesi don’t wear high heels and added this white floral hair clip for a touch of my own style. This sheer with cotton underlining dress made me comfortable for the duration of this photoshoot under the scorching heat. Good thing that as a Khaleesi, I am also an unburnt. Lol. Something Game of Thrones fanatics can only relate.

Attended Sun Life Event this month at Radisson Blu Cebu for their Rise PH Press Conference. This is a game changer for everyone who is into investing and saving for their future.

 

Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc., the top-ranked and longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, aims to serve five million clients by year 2020 under its new five-year growth plan dubbed “Rise PH”.

 

“Rise PH” champions financial inclusion in the Philippines, where only a small percentage of the whole population utilizes financial products such as insurance and investments. “Despite the bright prospects that the country’s economy has, prosperity still hasn’t trickled down to the more disadvantaged sectors of society. We have to address this,” Sun Life President and CEO Riza Mantaring said. “Sun Life would like to see more Filipinos looking forward to a brighter future and the whole country rising to greater heights. We would like to start by targeting five million clients in five years.

 

While it may seem like an ambitious goal, Mantaring believes that it’s best to set the targets high. “At Sun Life, we always dare to dream big – more so if the stakes are high. This is the country’s future we’re talking about, after all,” she explained. “Setting high targets will push us to do more, and will allow us to make a greater contribution to our country’s future.”

 

In order to reach the company’s goals, several initiatives will be launched under “Rise PH”. These initiatives will have Sun Life reaching out to a broader market, further boosting its financial literacy advocacy, and expanding its reach nationwide.

 

Financial Independence Month

Reina Pama, President of Sun Life Asset Management and Mylene Lopa, Chief Marketing Officer of Sun Life Financial during press conference shared their expert advises about Sun Life Plans.

 

The initial set of initiatives will be launched this June, which Sun Life has declared as “Financial Independence Month.” This includes the cooperation with 8990 Holdings, Inc., one of the top mass housing developers in the country, for efforts to promote financial literacy.

 

Another initiative is Money for Life, a comprehensive, customizable financial planning program that will ensure that a client will have sufficient funds for every stage of his life.

 

To help inspire the public to create their own Money for Life plan with a financial advisor, Sun Life created a 360-degree visual reality (VR) video, transporting them to different scenarios based on their chosen life stage. This will enable the viewer to live the dream for a minute and be encouraged to start planning for their future through Money for Life and Sun Life’s life insurance and investment products.

Viewable with a VR headset, the video can be experienced in a customized bus called “Bus to the Future,” which will be making its way to different malls and campuses nationwide. For Cebu, Money for Life Bus visited University of San Carlos Cebu last June 24, 2016.

 

Meanwhile, those who will not be able to visit the “Bus to the Future” stops will still get a boost in their financial journey with the Money for Life e-Planner. They simply have to go to (moneyforlife.com.ph) and they can immediately start their financial planning, get product recommendations, and even buy mutual funds from Sun Life Asset Management Co., Inc.

 

“Financial Independence Month” is now on its third year of highlighting the national importance of financial preparedness among Filipinos. “This June marks a new beginning as Sun Life embraces its goal of serving five million clients in five years,” Mantaring said. “We are very much excited about the possibilities, and we look forward to helping our country rise to reach its full potential.”

Since I have already blogged about the places I visited in Hong Kong, it’s time for me to do my blog finale. The shots below are taken around Hong Kong starting on our arrival up until our departure. Last hurrah before I finally close the chapter of this bitter-sweet journey.

Our very first meal after we land in HK. Saw this Chinese Restaurant close to our hotel so we decided to eat there. All restaurants in HK has an abundant serving and I keep on telling my boyfriend about it the whole time and his answer never change, “of course, because it’s expensive”. Yes, its expensive if we convert it to Philippine money.

After our visit in Victoria Harbour, we dropped by Harbour City Mall. I think my neck was on 360 degree rotation because everywhere I look there are high end brands I see that I don’t see in the Philippines.

Applause..applause to Tiffany and Co. architectural design.

We found this noodle place n HK selling delicious noodles and there was never a day that we don’t go there to eat noodles. My favorite is the Beef Brisket noodle.

We also went for authentic Chinese food hunt and visited Dimsum Square as recommended by our friend.

After our short photoshoot in Kowlook Park, we went to Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine Restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. This is the only time we splurge on food. I am the type of person who is not picky with food when in another country because I know the ordinary foods we eat there are already priced like the food we eat in restaurants here.

We didn’t order a lot and we were careful about the foods they put on the table because even the wet tissue has a charge, how much more the appetizers. We’ve learned this lesson when we were in Singapore last year. However, we did not resist their Hello Kitty chamomile tea. Brewed tastes really good!

My dessert arrived first. I forgot the exact name but it is a berry mix gelatin panna cotta with fresh fruits and milk.

Hello Kitty paintings hang on the wall.

Custard bun. Too pretty to eat, yes?

Hello Kitty shrimp dumplings! This is to die for!

After our dinner at Hello Kitty restaurant we walked to have our food digested until we reached Night Market and decided to buy souvenirs since we are leaving the following day. We decided to buy keychains and nails cutters as souvenirs but look what else I found! Kawaii mirrors and I can’t help not to buy all designs so I bought one for each design.

Fast forward the following day, we missed our flight, spent the entire day in the airport to rebook our flight, hotel and get more cash. We chose to stay in Tsim Sha Tsui still because we are already familiar with the place. As soon as we arrived in Tsim Sha Tsui, we dined at Yoshinoya which I’ve noticed a block away from our new hotel. I’ve tried Yoshinoya in SM Seaside and I so love their food. It was then that I found out that it a fast food chain that started in HK and China.

We killed time by strolling the streets of TSim Sha Tsui.

Woke up the following day 4 hours before our flight, arrived in the airport 2 hours before our flight and thank god this is my view on board.

 

Thank you for reading my blog! My Hong Kong escapade has finally ended.
