Reminds Me of Home

Philippines, Online

London is now my homebase as a professional model, but the Philippines will always be where my heart is. Pinoy craftsmanship and talent are second to none. These are some of the brands that remind me of the things I love back home!

Aling Taleng's Halo-Halo

2 saves

Santa Cruz, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Growing up in Laguna, I’d be lying if I say I’m not a fan of this joint. There’s never a better summer dessert to quench your thirst than Halo-Halo, and Aling Taleng’s takes my vote for the best version of this Pinoy dessert. I’ll come back to this place in a heartbeat just for that nostalgic taste.

The Giving Cafe

Mandaluyong City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

I frequented this cafe way back when I was still based in Manila. I just love the aesthetic and vibe of this place. Plus, their coffee and food are irresistible! I always get their iced Timpladong Puti, cheese sticks, and ’silog meals. Yum!

Manam Comfort Filipino (Greenbelt)

16 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Sinigang is known as an all-time classic Pinoy dish, and I believe Manam cooks a heavenly version of this popular Pinoy ulam! I miss it so much that I tried to recreate it here in London, but the taste is just not the same. So just go here, and you’ll know!

Online, • Recommendation • 

Wardrobe malfunctions are just a no-no in modeling, so I keep myself equipped with the essentials whenever I’m at work! Nipple tapes are obviously a given, and I get mine from Bloom Cover. A friend owns this brand, and apart from the tapes that come in various shades, they also sell scrunchies, hair products, and clothes that are all in good quality.
