Great News! Follow my tumblr blog. 
As an amateur part-time blogger who blogs about menswear and style, I definitely have a list of my favorite blogs/sites that I admire and visit on a daily basis. These blogs inspire and influence my point of view about men's fashion, and keep me updated about various kinds of men styles, trends and rules. Most importantly, they help me broaden my knowledge about men's fashion and build my taste/preferences that is classy, timeless and modern.

One of my favorite sites that is dedicated to everyday male fashion is This site  also has a tumblr account. As I was checking my tumblr dashboard, I saw a post of GSG with a gif "83 Incredible Male Style Tumblrs For 2012". I was so happy because that would be 83 new blogs that I'm going to follow. When I scrolled downwards and followed blog after blog, I reached number 70 and saw the name of my blog. I was shocked! 

Time to celebrate!
I'm going to continue to work hard and learn. After all, its my hobby and passion. Hope this kind of things will happen again in the future. Time to Celebrate!

Summer Destination: Philippines

I've been to the PH four times already, but I haven't visited any major sites or landmarks. Since the country tries its best to promote its tourism, with a motto "It's more fun in the Philippines" I decided to ask my cousins to help me visit some interesting sites in Manila.

I travelled about eight hours to reach Manila from Ilocos Sur. It has been a long and tiring trip, but definitely worth it. The picture above was taken at Fort Santiago, Intramuros. It is one of the oldest Hispanic stone fortresses in the country. I heard that it was originally the site of Rajah Soliman's fort, and was used by the Spaniards under various governor generals who continued to modernise it.

To be honest, I did not expect a lot from this fort. This is mainly due to the fact that I grew up in Greece where ruins and ancient buildings can be found almost everywhere. However, I was fascinated by it, not because of the architecture but rather due to its aura. It looks very old, but preserved. The carvings at the front reminded me of the ruins built by the Mayans in South America.

As you can see it was raining during my visit and it was completely empty. I was so glad that we had the whole area for ourselves.
