Endgame

It’s almost time.

I’ve finally finished my MCU marathon (in chronological order), to prepare myself for the end of an epic era. To be honest, I still don’t feel like I’m ready to say goodbye, but after revisiting everything, I have to applaud Marvel (and Disney obvs) for creating such an incredible and beautiful universe. And of course, I have to give a standing ovation for our dearest king, Stan Lee. Excelsior!

If I stop and think about the gravity of it all I actually end up crying, so instead of mourning I decided to celebrate the MCU in my own little way – Disney Style. For the past week, I have been Disneybounding the original Avengers – all from my own closet. No shopping. No borrowing even. I have to admit it was pretty challenging, but really fun.

If you don’t know what Disneybounding is, it’s when you dress like a certain character by incorporating colors/placement of colors instead of wearing the actual costume. This makes it easier to dress like a kid without non-believers ever finding out that you’re basically a Disney character traipsing around the real world. *wink*

Pink Princess

Saved the best for last on this Tokyo Disney Style Blog.

I’ve been going to Disney in pink ever since I was a child. And before rose gold and millennial pink were a thing, blush was the color I’ve always felt prettiest and most confident in. So now that I’m older, I make sure that there is always at least one pink day – especially on my birthday trips.

And let me tell you, I think this may be the most pink outfit I’ve ever worn. And this includes the outfits my mom and I wore on our last Disney trip, which were already pretty extra.

Toontown Bound

Okay, so this next one isn’t necessarily a bound, but more of a Disney style ensemble. It takes me back to those days as a kid where I’d go to the parks in a Mickey shirt and a hat and call it a day. This is what I would call a “ride day” outfit, because it’s practical for a whole day of gallivanting around the parks (not that I go on that many rides lol)

Arendelle

Second day, second bound!

Once again I was faced with the challenge of coming up with our winter Disneybounds. Then I realized, when I think winter, I think snow! And just like that, we knew what our second bound was going to be:

Frozen.

Quite literally too. We really were frozen. It was the coldest day of our trip.

But you know, some people are worth melting freezing for, so we strapped on our warmest winter gear and ran around the best park in the world as Elsa, Anna, and Olaf.

Some fear conquering, and a wedding

Coron | January 2016

Beautiful, breathtaking, Coron!

Beautiful, breathtaking, Coron!

I didn’t really grow up much of an island girl. I was born and raised in Manila by parents who like to travel to places with colder climates, so I never really had much opportunity to bond with the ocean until I started traveling with my friends. Nevertheless, I was always afraid of it. I know the basic swimming strokes which I learned in school, in a safe pool, but I never learned how to tread, hence my fear of drowning (which is a pretty rational fear I think) and my fear of not knowing what’s swimming by my feet (which I will admit, is a little less rational).

The spectacular view from Kayangan Lake. A bit of a climb, but worth it.
