We all have our favorite brand when it comes to clothes and accessories. I guess, you can say that CELINE has snagged a spot in my Top 5 List of All-Time Faves. Aside from the fact that their product line is much more affordable than the others, their attention to detail is simply magnificent, not to mention their wide range of colors, great textures and classic designs.

I find it both amusing and adorable that we Filipinos find every chance there is to have our pictures taken just about anywhere, anytime of the day. Wouldn't it be great though if we can pose before an array of stunning backgrounds, absolutely free?
If you're cool with that, here are 9 Picture-Perfect Backdrops around the Metro to add a degree of elegance, awesomeness and fun in any of your photos.
1. Hello Kitty Christmas at The North!
If you're a huge Sanrio-phile, then you'll absolutely fall in love with Hello Kitty Christmas at the North happening at The Block Atrium until January 6, 2013. Pose with Hello Kitty characters garbed in adorable costumes stationed in front of their equally glitzy homes. The best thing is, you don't have to buy anything to gain access to this event, although you do have the option to bring home your favorite Hello Kitty products from the nearby stand-alone counter.

2. Sky Garden @ SM North Edsa
Even if you're just a simple passerby, you can choose to pose in front of these colorful trees and life-sized decors to your heart's content- without being whisked away by Manong Guard. Just make sure to let other visitors get their photo-ops too by learning how to wait patiently for your turn.

3. Trinoma Mall
In one of Trinoma's entrances, there stood a plethora of white lanterns and angel-inspired Christmas trees that look gorgeous during the day but ultra-ravishing at night.

4. MOA Eye
For me, MOA Eye is more than just a ferris wheel but rather a wonderful landmark that can rival the mighty Singapore Flyer and the ultra-chic Taipei Eye. Experience this beautiful contraption at its best when you shoot from a distance to wonderfully capture the glorious sun set in 3D.
5. Serendra Piazza
You and your family will love the eclectic waterfalls piece stationed a few meters away from the giant Christmas tree at Serendra Piazza. If you're going for something more mysterious though, try visiting this particular spot at night for more winning photos.
Kids and toddlers will absolutely enjoy posing with these humongous balls which look like they've come out of a popular theme park or something.
6. Market! Market!
If you have a fetish for water-inspired contraptions, then Market Market's electronically timed fountain will make your photo-ops ultra-refreshing. Be careful not to get wet though if you don't want your gadgets to get ruined by the spurting water.
7. Bonifacio High Street
Step into Neverland teeming with shops and restos set amid lush greenery and an infinity-inspired water fixture that invite photo-ops from a variety of lovely angles.

8. Giant Christmas Tree at the Araneta Center
A touch of color here and there amid a thousand glittering lights make the Giant Christmas tree at theAraneta Center an indispensable part of our Christmas tradition. Just imagine how good your photo will look like with this tree in the background?

9. Ayala Triangle Gardens Lights & Sounds Show
This yearly light and sound show at the Ayala Triangle has become sort of a tradition for most families, garnering almost the same level of excitement that its prototype, the C.O.D. Displays, have brought forth 20 to 30 years ago. Make sure to adjust your camera settings to make your snapshots ultra-memorable.
Located along the elegantly rustic Tokyo Street at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Mochi Sweets blended perfectly with the other stalls whose main goal was to give mall visitors a sumptuous taste of Japan's pervading food culture.
I fell in love with the Durian Mousse for its deep, wonderful blend of the durian's robust flavor and the cream's richly elegant texture. Though this particular variant had too many notes in it, for some reason, the recipe was able to hit all of them perfectly!

The Caramel Macchiato,on the other hand, was a little bit restrained than the Durian Mousse. Although I didn't hear any fireworks when I was eating it, I still found its grainy nature and sweetness quite interesting.

I still think that although Mochi Sweets is quite pricey, it still makes for an excellent gift to friends and loved ones. Just look at that elegant packaging! And the good thing is, MS comes in a variety of quantities to suit our budget and purpose.
Although blogging is my passion, I still find it hard to blog as often as I'd want to. Juggling mommyhood, my voice-over biz and writing gigscan pose a bit of a problem sometimes. Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining at all! At least, I get to do all these things from the comfort of my own home. Nothing can be sweeter than that. But my blogging has been pushed to the sidelines resulting to a backlog of at least 40 articles! To somehow solve this issue, I've decided to simply make a list of some of these stories so that I can really start writing them.
