De Niro, Scorsese, and DiCaprio may have wanted in but I was never as keen. It's not the type of place Kwittiegirl and I usually go to but we just spent the weekend at City of Dreams Manila. We left our hotel room for dinner and then went around to see what dreams exactly were here in this little city.
So what to wear so I don't look like the hampaslupa (vagrant) that I am? A long-sleeve shirt is probably the easiest way -- or at least the first step -- to dressing up with some dignity. You can build on it from here: tie, jacket, you name it.
But to keep it casual I simply wore colored jeans, which was also a minor exercise on color play. I don't know what this shade of blue is called but it works well with the olive green pants.
And to keep it even more relaxed I wore sneakers for footwear, but not the colorful and flamboyant type. I still wanted some semblance of elegance, you see. And for accessories I ditched the wristwatch for a bracelet and a ring.
As we went into the casino I immediately noticed that the color of my shirt was quite close to what the casino security were wearing. But instead of feeling queasy and uncomfortable, I chose to ignore the whole thing. It was probably just me who's noticed it anyway.
Gambling's not really my thing and shopping attractions were very limited here, but the kid in me instantly perked up at the sight of Toothless (of How to Train Your Dragon fame) and a slew of other Dreamworks characters.
Toothless, a.k.a. Night Fury!
This kid got some Toothless keepsakes from the shop. What ever happened to dignity?
Calling it a night.
Called it a night. Let the dreaming begin!
