Our Tokyo, Japan 8 nights 9 days Itinerary



I've been blogging some of the highlights of our Tokyo Tour this summer. I figured why not share the whole itinerary to help those who are going plan their trip.

Google Maps is our best friend when traveling. We used it to navigate and know what establishments are near us. Also, we made our own 8 nights / 9 days itinerary but we did a lot of research before our trip. 

Here are the links that really helped us with our ultimate Tokyo itinerary :)

  • Japan Guide
  • A lot of Japanese don't speak English. So, you also need to learn some basic Japanese words so you could interact when you're in a restaurant or just ask them if you need help with directions. I like this Japanese phrases you need for a travelling video that Currently Hannah did.
  • For recommended restaurants to try per area, Paolo From Tokyo's videos helped us a lot. He's a Filipino based in Japan and he has lots of great videos about Japan
 

Day 1 - Walk at Shibakoen, Minato City

For our Day 1, we just walked around our hotel area which is Hamamutsucho, Shibakoen and Tokyo Tower.

Makeup Schools and Classes to Choose From in Metro Manila

Most of us makeup addicts started learning about makeup application and get inspiration through our favorite Youtube Gurus. But the entire makeup techniques topic is very broad and applying it to other people will take a lot of practice in order to master. So, if you want to take it to the next level, having formal makeup classes and be updated on the trend is the best way to go.

Below is the list of the best makeup schools to choose from here in Metro Manila:

1.) HD Makeup school Academy

I had to make this first because this is where I got my HiDef Beauty and Makeup, Airbrush, and Bridal and Fashion Hairstyling Certificates. They helped me start my makeup career! 

The HD Makeup Studio and Academy specialize in hi-definition (HD) makeup and precision haircutting. They offer intensive classes in conventiona, airbrush makeup and even special effects to help build a foundation for those who want to do makeup professionally.

These are the active makeup schools that I know as of this writing. Feel free to comment if you want me to research on a makeup school you have heard of.

Being a Professional Makeup Artist is not as easy as some might think. You need to put a lot of passion, hard work and patience in every projects you do. It's also continuous learning. It doesn't stop on getting a certificate from a makeup school. But if it is your passion, you will surely have fun for the rest of your life.

Authentic Taiwanese Restaurant in the Philippines, Mazendo



My husband has been raving about an authentic Taiwanese restaurant in Makati, Philippines that he tried with his workmates. He said that he's sure I'm going to like it because it's authentic and it's my kind of food and the best thing is, it's included in Zomato Gold 1+1. Yey!
