Life is short. Buy the Shoes!

I love collecting shoes, I love shoes who doesn't right? But sometimes our feet hurt after we wear a particular pair of shoes, and there are also days that we prefer wearing athletic shoes when we're going out. Improper footwear can lead to foot conditions that could otherwise be avoided.

Ask yourself these questions: Do your shoes fit? Is the width of the toe box adequate?

One must know their shoe size and what kind of shoes to wear. Improper footwear can cause a number of foot conditions and aggravate others. Here's something that could help you Shoe Size Conversion  and Shoe Size Conversion Chart!

9 Fun Facts About Shoes and Feet (source: therightshoe.net)

1. Shoe sizes were first established in the year 1324! in England by King Edward II. He declared in 1324 that the diameter of one barley corn (one third of an inch) would represent one full shoe size. This standard of measure is still used today!

2. The best-selling shoe size in the US is an 8.5 for women and a 10.5 for men. Those numbers are both up a full size from 30 years ago. 3. If you think you know your foot size most likely you could be off, 85% of people underestimate their size by at least a half size.

 3. If you think you know your foot size most likely you could be off, 85% of people underestimate their size by at least a half size.

4. Most people don’t realize that your foot size can increase 1 ½ sizes or more throughout your adult life. As you age, your feet are likely to flatten out causing an increase in length and/or width. Other factors such as changes in weight, surgery, and pregnancy can also impact your foot size.

5. Compared to fingernails, toenails grow much more slowly. They grow about 1 mm a month, where fingernails can grow an average of 0.1 mm a day. Did you know it can take up to 5-6 months to grow an entirely new toenail? Your toenails also aids to clue in doctors on whether you are anemic (spoon shaped indentations) psoriasis (pits in your nail surface) or even poor blood circulation (hairless toes).

6. Did you know each foot contains about 250,000 sweat glands? People think that if your feet sweat that is what causes them to smell. However that isn’t true your socks and shoes trap odor causing bacteria which thrives in dark and damp environments.

 7. Ancient Romans were the first to construct distinct left and right shoes. Before that shoes could be worn on either foot.

8. The average woman walks more than 3 miles more per day than the average male.

9. People always think baby’s feet are so cute, but did you know there might be a reason for that? All babies are born with a pad of fat where the arch in an adult foot would be. Children’s arches don’t usually appear until the child is about 2-2 ½ years old!

Just Wandering

I'm so excited to share with you my Villa Escudero experience! YAY most of you are familiar with this place but for those who doesn't know here's a quick info about them:

Villa Escudero is a self-contained working coconut plantation, It was founded in the 1880s by Don Placido Escudero and his wife Dona Claudia Marasigan. Originally planted to sugarcane, the crop was converted to coconut by their son Don Arsenio Escudero in the early 1900s. A pioneering agro-industrialist, he built the country's first working hydroelectric plant to supply his dessicated coconut factory and Villa Escudero, where he and his wife Dona Rosario Adap built in 1929.

Their children opened the estate to the public in 1981. From its humble beginnings, the resort has become a prime tourist destination for locals, overseas Filipinos and a wide array of foreign visitors to the country. It has a worldwide reputation as a showcase for the Philippines' rich cultural heritage, offering a beguiling glimpse of its history, cuisine, dress, customs and natural beauty a mere two hours away from Manila.

Here are some random pictures taken from Villa Escudero:
 This is where they held receptions, birthdays and other events (I also discovered that they held the reception of Maya's and Sir Chief's wedding here lol)


 Check in and information desk, what I love most about VE is that they have the friendliest staff compared to those 5 stars hotel I've been to.
 Carabao ride from the entrance to your villas (fun ride!)
 The famous man made waterfalls restaurant. The experience of dining on delicious local dishes with the sparkling waterfalls as a backdrop with clear spring water running over your feet is a truly singular and memorable experience only Villa Escudero can offer.
 If im not mistaken they have 4 pools, including for kids and adults. They also have a jacuzzi~
 
They also have a lot of these cute looking statues all over the place. 
And the highlight of my experience is the Bamboo Rafting with my friends. 

I'm glad that our school arrange this amazing itinerary including an over night stay here in VE, it's such a memorable experience. I will definitely go back  *O* Anyhoo, sorry for the lack of photos I didn't took a lot since I want to make the most of my time there. (Sobrang bitiiiiiiiiiin I must say ugh)
