LOOKBOOK | 'Tis the season for flannel

Flannel shirts have a special place during the colder months. They're warm and comfy, and their usually plaid patterns allow for versatility in terms of putting together an outfit.

TRAVEL | La Beaute de Hanoi Hotel: Great value for money

So we're already halfway through the first month of the new year. Got any travel plans yet? While I'm already looking forward to summer, wouldn't it be nice to go someplace while the weather's cold?

In that regard, Hanoi in Vietnam would be great since they have winter there--sans all the discomfort that snow brings. Despite all the perceived chaos brought by swarms of motorbikes, Hanoi is a nice city, especially its Old Quarter area.

When we were there last year we stayed at this lovely and inexpensive little hotel called La Beaute de Hanoi. Here's a rundown of our experience.

LOOKBOOK | Pink stripes in candy land

Can I eat it?

Speaking of holding on to the holidays, here's another one. In another mall the decor was candy-themed, so there were lots of pink and blue. I just thought the polo with pink stripes I was wearing fit right into the background.

LOOKBOOK | Black and khaki

halfwhiteboy - black and khaki 01

Nothing much really, just khaki pants, a plain black V-neck tee, and a pair of black sneakers for a rather plain and easygoing look. And yeah, holding on to the holidays perhaps.

LOOKBOOK | A touch of holiday color and a lot of reindeer

Christmas caroling with some reindeer in scarves.

Nothing much going on with my outfit really; just maroon shorts (which, being close to red, evokes some connection to the holidays--or at least I think it does), an old white tee with a graphic pixelated print, and some gray sneakers. It's a getup that's very relaxed and fit for some malling.

And oh, what fun did I have at the mall! The kid in me was unleashed yet again, thanks to Shangri-la Plaza's reindeer-themed Christmas decor. I went a little crazy as it was reindeer everywhere.

LOOKBOOK | Christmas with on oversize croc

Christmas installations and decor never fail to bring out the kid in me. So while waiting for a table at the Manila Pen lobby on Christmas Day itself, I just had to have a couple of photos taken. Of me, of course.

I wore another one of Lacoste's polo shirts with an oversize croc logo. It was as if Hermione flicked her wand and muttered "Engorgio!" at the embroidered reptile. I thought it was cute, complemented by contrasting details on the collar and sleeves. Paired it with much cheaper joggers and black sneakers for something comfy and casual.

Red and green, ugly Christmas sweaters (which I find cute actually)--now let's add plaid into the mix of holiday outfits, shall we?
