Richmonde Iloilo Highlights: Our Sweet Escape

People have been wondering how we managed to stay in love despite the LDR? (Read along to find out the answer) With all our busy schedule mine as an influencer, travel and fashion blogger and JP Yap as someone who goes to law school, it seems impossible for us to find time together. In fact when Richmonde Hotel Iloilo asked me to come by again, we honestly had a hard time to find a workable schedule for each other. But with all the stars lining up that day… Finally we found a common weekend!


Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is one of my favorite luxurious hotel in the city. Every weekends spent here felt like an entirely new experience. Never a dull moment I tell you! For those who has been following me before, I’m pretty sure you’ve read my first review of the hotel with my younger sister, Chloe: (Read more here) The Richmonde Hotel Experience (Rates + Virtual Tour)

Who took the photo?

JP Yap did of course! My Chinese lover have been so consistent with taking good shots of me lately. In a world full of judgments and misinterpretations, love and support are some of the few things that true love alone can provide. I guess these are some of the priceless factors that kept us going despite the distance.
