Being born and raised in a tropical country, having a winter wonderland is a common fantasy of someone who is used to a sunny and rainy disposition. The geographical location of the Philippines – situated in the middle of the equator would make you realize that you have to kiss your frozen dreams goodbye in your homeland.

Despite of this, the confirmation of the sun’s presence even on the seasons where other countries are freezing cold has been welcomed with open arms with our swimwear on. You can get a tan anytime of the year and counteract the heat wave with a splash.

As a sun worshiper, we always make it a point to drive to the nearest resort and take a dip on the pool under a sunny afternoon. We found ourselves in The Greenery, Bulacan on a hot weekend. It was a total detox having the sun glare on their crystal blue infinity pool, facing a wide lake. While some of my friends are covering up with layers of clothing for that extra warmth, the palm trees and the white cottages in The Greenery gave us the perfect opportunity to strip down and show the goods that we have been working for over a year.

A major relief from being constantly covered by corporate clothes on the majority of my existence. Sunburns over frostbite? I’m willing to give the latter a try maybe in the future. But the former can provide an equal enjoyment, a sort of starting the year with kisses from the sunlight.




Better be nude than naked. Our baby top model Kelsey Merritt stars in a beauty editorial, sporting bare to basic colors with a not so basic expression.
