One of the perks of having a car is getting to drive pass and discover newly opened restaurants and/or new attractions to visit next time. And that's exactly how we discovered this recently opened picture perfect cafe / refreshment shop in General Trias. Because it is located along the main road and because of its attracting interiors, there's a greater chance you will not miss this place.

As early as elementary, I was already into arts and crafts. But it was only back in college when I discovered my passion for fashion. I wasn't a fashionista before college. Yes, I do wear what's trendy but that was it. I don't worry about how I look; I was comfortable with jeans and branded shirts. When I started college and met students who dress well in class, I felt I needed to fit in. I bought magazines to check what's trendy, how to mix match dresses and well, visit the thrift shops (more known as ukay-ukay). And that's when my fashion interest kicked in.

I was an impulsive buyer. I bought any fashion garment I find beautiful even if I don't really have to wear it. Because of this behavior, my room was filled with garments I don't even wear. So I decided to sell them. That was the birth of my online shop.

After a while, I felt I needed to know more about fashion and the industry as a whole. I searched online for fashion schools and enrolled myself in one for a certificate fashion marketing course. It was the closest and the most convenient fashion school for me during that time. I remember wishing for a fashion school located within Calabarzon. Well, that wish was granted this year, around May when FIDA Sewing and Arts School officially opened its business in Silang Cavite.
