Vlog Milan 2016

Milan is one of my favorite layover! That is why I am so excited about this vlog!

Mainly because of food, fashion, beauty and the shopping.

To he honest, if I can choose a place to move. Italy would be it for me.

I like how the city relaxed is not busy  like New York or Paris.

The people are also amazing. They are almost always a pair of old people in the train, on the streets, the restaurants.

On the busy shopping streets you would also see so many diverse and dynamic people. The fashion is always on point. And pets! OMG I go crazy over those pretty little fur friends that people strut along with them.

I wasn’t expecting this sunny weather. But I guess you can never go wrong with wearing black! 😀

The famous gelato! Only 2 Euros from carts on the streets. 5 euros from more fancier shops.

There are two ways to get to the Duomo Terraces. By Stairs 7 euros and by elevator 12 euros. We went by elevator. 😛

For eating I would really suggest eating on local restaurants that are nearby your hotel. Eating pasta from fast food stores around the touristy areas are not nearly even on the 10th level good of the food that we experience with the local restaurants.

I would recommend the Marinara Pasta and Pizza and the Tiramisu for dessert!

One of the strange traditions in Milan is spinning on this Bull’s Balls to ward off bad spirits. Place your foot firmly on the balls area and spin backwards three times.

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II. Can you believe it took 14 years to build this belissima (beautiful) structure. They really don’t make malls like these anymore!

Ah Milan! You will always be my dreamy happy place.  I’d love to visit you as much as I can!

Another plus side of this place for me by the way, is the number of Filipinos who live here!

Its so common to meet a lot of our kababayans everywhere on this place.

So that’s all for this Milan Blog guys!

Be sure to check out my video / Vlog for this short trip here:

 

Vlog: Misskaykrizz in London

On this Vlog: Misskaykrizz in London, I have you follow me around as I go about my 24 hours layover.

This time it was a relaxed day where in we just went out to get some groceries and do a little bit of shopping. We went on a double decker bus to get to Slough. And from there on we went about our own shopping and I found my way back home to the hotel.

Pretty much the typical day of a flight attendant on a layover after she has explore the place for a couple of times already.

I also show some clips of me going to the typical tourist spots and going on a trip to the Stonehenge.

 

Enjoy the video loves!

xoxo,

Vlog: What do Pinay Flight Attendants do on Manila Layovers

Being a Pinay flight attendant, One of the best part of the job is getting to go home and see familiar face, eat familiar food and do your favorite home activities. You are not like any other OFW that needs to save a lot of money and get an arranged vacation days just to go home again. I would say this is one of the best perks of working as a flight attendant.

I don’t really have much family and friends back in Manila (my friends and family are mostly in Cebu)  so most of us who lives in the province will not be able to go back home during short layover like this one.

 

So on this particular layover I met with my Aunt who is based in Manila.

We went straight away for live music that night. I miss live music the most when I go home I always want to go out and listen to our home grown talents.

The best part of any place I ever go to is of course the food.

But in this case I also loved loved the girly stuff that I get to do for such an affordable price compared to anywhere in the world.

Also did you know the best the dentists can be found in here in the Philippines?

My gosh the horror stories of dentists abroad will scare you to death 🙂

Anywhoo..

Here is a video of me and my Tita having a great time just being girls.

VLOG: Paris Layover, Notre Dame, I bought a branded bag ? -Flight Attendant

 

IMG_8883

On this VLOG: Paris Layover, my Pinay mafia and I went out to see the Notre Dame Church and went shopping at Champs Elysees.

It was not my first time in Paris. However, it seems that I have deleted my vlog files the first time I went here. I am so sad about that. T^T

The first time in any dream place is always magical. I lost my friends but I still marched on to exploring the city even if I am alone. True Story! Scary a little bit but when I get to see the Eifel tower the first time, I almost cried. But that is a whole other blogpost.

 

Now lets focus on our trip to the Notre Dame church and flying with batch mates.

batch flight layover paris

A Batch flight is a flight where most member of the crew is your batch mate. Meaning you went to the training together. This is one of those amazing flights where everybody gets along, great teamwork and you feel like you are not working at all and you are going on a vacation with your friends. Only this time, the ticket, hotel accommodation and the pocket money is for FREE. Its the best feeling in the world!

It was the Holy week so it is only fitting that we first visit the church that day.

There was not much tourists and queue for the church maybe because it was not a peak season at that time.

The entrance to the church is free and we can take pictures inside the church.

My first impression of the church. “Why is it so dark here?”

I guess that is part of its aesthetics.

Lots of statues of different saints and gargoyles can be found all over the pillars and the walls of the church.

It is just surreal to be in the place where you only seen in cartoons as a kid. Seeing that places like these really do exists is a mind expanding experience. You get to realize the world is so much more than what you have imagined it to be. (Mainly because I didn’t see any hunchback there, it was pretty much a tourist spot with all the touristy stuff. But that is not the point )

Now shopping in this city is a whole lot of different kind of adventure.

Their stores are HUGE and has almost all the stocks that you can think of.

The shops offer you drinks while you are trying to decide which item would you like to buy.

 

Shopping in Paris is also very practical because items are priced way lower than you would get these items from other parts of the world. Mainly because these products are made locally. Getting the hefty Tax Refund is also one big factor why people love to shop here.

Some Flight Attendants actually makes it a side business to buy and sell bags from here.

Which is what I am doing before I lost my Paris flights to another fleet (meaning I don’t get to fly to Paris at the moment since it need another training for the airplane that flies there.)

However, If anyone of you are interested in ordering branded bags from MILAN, I’m your girl. You can send me an email at kaykrizz@gmail.com if you want me to shop for you. 😉 #shamelessplug
