Giving Back- American Cancer Society Bridging Birthdays

My favorite ladies and I are yet again taking a great new venture together. After a feel-good-because-we-are-giving-back-to-our-community experience from volunteering at the Great Aloha Run this February, we decided that we didn’t mind doing it again. This time, we’re going bigger. With American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society is a national non-profit health organization […]

The Versatile Blogger Award!

Mahalo to the beautiful and inspiring Hiba, (Cloud of Lace) who took a minute to designate me my very first WordPress nomination, or any nomination in this blogesphere EVER, The Versatile Blogger Award.

Cloudoflace is about everything and anything marvelous- from art, to fashion, to recipes….”little treasures” as she calls them.  Reading her blog is just refreshing.  So of course, I was delighted to find out she feels the same about mines.  Again, as we say here in Hawaii, Mahalo Nui Loa, Hiba!

And finally, here are 7 Things About Me that I would like to share…

1.  I love love love love Starbucks, especially mocha frap and hot mocha with 3x shot on busy days.  I’m a proud Starbuholic, and a chocoholic.

2. I’m very flexible. I owe it all to yoga pilates that I’m so busy to do nowadays.

3. My hair is jet black, thanks to my beautiful Filipina mother who had always told me to never color my hair.

4.  I prefer Asian cuisine to just about any other type of food- Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai…

5.  I have five siblings who I love so much – Natalie, Ersa, Neil, Sally, & Dessa.

6.  I heart Korean dramas, especially romantic comedy, and the lessons behind them.  I truly believe in undying love and devotion, that through any trials and tribulations, love conquers all.

7.  In April 2010, I launched Fashion With a Mission, a non-profit organization focusing on providing clothes to orphaned children throughout the globe. The organization is still on its beginning stages, however, I hope to fully establish Fashion with a Mission and encourage fashionistas that “we can make a difference, one trend, one style at a time”.

Cup of Goodness- Volunteering in Guatemala

There are some people in this world that you just have to be surrounded with. The kind of people that are positive, energetic, and have a remarkable aura that make you feel good, be good and do good.

One of my darling best friends, and of course one of my favorite girls in this world, Kelsie Pascual are just one of those special people.  She is absolutely amazing.

I spent Sunday afternoon listening to her great adventure as a volunteer abroad in Guatemala.  She arrived at my house with some souvenirs- beautiful handcrafted butterfly decors (“They love butterflies in Guatemala!”,and….

surprise, surprise, traditionally handmade chocolate from Guatemala (“Hon, I actually learned how to make real chocolate!”)

I also learned within a few minutes that if mixed with hot water, these crunchy chocolates can turn into the most delicious hot cocoa ever made.

Hearing about Kelsie’s stories during her travel is like drinking from a never-ending cup of goodness.

How inspiring. Go Kelsie!
