To Bring?… or Not?

In less than 2 weeks I will be flying off to C.U.B.A. for a week.  not 5-day “week”… an entire 7-day week”!  So Uber-Uber-Uber excited!!!! …. o Shit just suddenly realized that I’ll be back the thursday before Thanksgiving.  Well, I knew that.. but completely forgot about the whole Thanksgiving dinner issue.  S.H.I.T.

oh well, I’ll worry about it later.  Right now, I have to worry about the trip.

I haven’t been to any tropical resort destinations.  As a Hong Kong-nese we went to Thailand, Singapore as the Asian Mexico, but that was LONG ago!  Don’t even remember what it was really like…. (except the Thailand pineapple fried rice… mmm….) I have no idea what to bring! What to wear!  The number 1 fear for most people when travelling is being ill prepared.  No, there’s no stats for that.  But since it’s true for me, must be for everyone else too.  We are going to Manzanillo, Cuba, a less developed and poorer part of the country.  Simple necessities will be expensive, and difficult to obtain.

I know there are some simple necessities:


  1. Swim suit (3)
  2. Shorts/skirts (4-5)
  3. Flip Flops (1)
  4. Flats/Sandal Flats (2)
  5. Summer Dress (2)
  6. Flowy evening sexy dress (2)
  7. Straw Hat
  8. Sunglasses
  9. Under garments
  10. Sweater
  11. Simple Accessories (want some earthy bangles and necklaces)

Other misc:

  1. ALL toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, louffa, floss)
  2. Make up
  3. Curling iron
  4. Adapter plug
  5. Bug Repellent
  6. Hair Spray
  7. Tylenol & simple first aid
  8. Camera & charger
  9. Hair Brush
  10. Sunscreen

 I know, vanity items took up most of the list.  That’s why I need your help to think of little things that I might need.  Also, are there any good island fashion tips? What are some good styles to wear three? Something simple, appropriate yet sexy?

Here are some looks I like:




Awww… so romantic.  Definitely going to leave all my black pieces at home


Cute as a frikkin button


For hanging out in the city.. substitute with denim shorts


Pink one at the bottom… too cute… must have!


ooo you sum it up so well! 🙂 I’m going to take you as my shopping list!
