Dumaguete Day One: Moonlit Stroll

i apologize if i've been MIA for almost 4 days. i fell hard in love with dumaguete that it took me a while to recover. here's day one of our trip -- discovering that our very affordable suite in one of the hotels near the famous Rizal boulevard has floor to ceiling windows, overlooking the ocean; each having two of the infamous Taster's burgers right when we arrived, meeting up with one of Harry's childhood best friends over dinner at Cafe' Antonio and drinks at Hayahay then just taking a long walk along Rizal boulevard, with the waves crashing against the rocks and over good conversation.
 

the food: 
(1) our Taster's burgers -- Harry and i were such pigs that we ate two each; the burgers were nothing fancy really as they came with the usual coleslaw and mayo-ketchup sauce but the meat was just juicy even when it was thin and the burgers just screamed home-cooked goodness;
(2) my Jamaican porkchops at Cafe' Antonio; wasn't able to take a photo of Harry's baby back ribs because we're such terrible food bloggers that we forget to take out the camera before we start devouring the food;


black dress with crocheted details - thrifted
blue beaded sandals - bangkok find
black purse - nine west vintage
necklaces: elephant tusk - bangkok | diamond shaped pattern - gifted from ivy
armor ring and skull ring - carbon finds

Do you really want my pale skin? รถ haha, so typical: i want a tan, and other people want my skin ^^ not that I hate my skin, it's just that I would want to have a little bit of a tan so my bikini and clothes would look better on me :) x
