Vivo V5 Plus


I’ve been taking selfie shots since I’ve owned a camera.  And when I say camera I mean those 110 filmed point and shoot cameras a.k.a. as lomo cams .  Selfie also known as selca or self capture is a great work-around to take photos of yourself with the view when there’s no one around to take it for you. Self timer also works. While some people feel weird doing it but I don’t.  It is not being vain or anything but just not wanting to disturb anyone else so you find a way to do it by yourself.  It’s what “innovative” people do to “survive”Read More →

#DisciverLA #EarthintheUSAadventure


Honestly, I never knew what to expect from my first time in the USA trip.  I had mixed emotions when it came to this trip.  Anxiety started when I was processing my visa and was getting a schedule in the US embassy.  I was there thrice before I got my visa.  It was some technical weird thing that my DS file number was not in their records. They asked if I had a printed copy of my DS file (the entire thing!) I said I did not because it was not a requirement.  Because of that I had to reschedule my interview dates. I didRead More →


The Chinese people has a lot of influence over how we Filipino live. One practice everyone seems to be adopting now , inspite of religion , is Feng Shui.  Following tips or things it suggest you do for luck and prosperity seems to be effective for most.  Because of that the number of people practicing it increases. Just recently I met Princes Lim Fernandez, a Feng Shui expert who founded the Yin & Yang Shop of Harmony.  We had a Yin and Yang luncheon at New World Hotel in Makati where she gave us tips on the things to do for luck & prosperity beforeRead More →


When a new year comes, I always say, the best year is yet to come.  That is true for me at least, because every year I get opportunities to live the dream. For that, I can’t be thankful enough to everyone who made my 2016 such a blast! It was not perfect but I wouln’t ask for it to be any different, because I know that is how it should be. Just this 2016 I had an abundance of travel adventures and see places I didn’t even have in my must-see places to visit.  A lot of first happened this 2016 ! For starters, IRead More →


I have not even blogged about my #EarthintheUSAadventure in Los Angeles and Oregon yet. But here I am blogging about something timely and scary. I need to blog this right away so as to remind everyone else out there to be very careful where they use their credit card/ debit card, especially in the USA.   I’m a victim of credit card skimming in USA and lost Php20,000 from the scammers. Here’s how my story goes… ‘Twas the day before Christmas when all through the house, everyone was stirring, even a mouse! It was a busy day for me, December 24, 2016. I was doingRead More →

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series #TourismMekong

I’ve been to several cruises but mostly on a yacht .  Most of them last for at least two-three hours. In the said cruise what we did was to sail in the middle of the ocean and then eat, drink , party, then back to the port area. It was such a great experience to go on a cruise boat with real stops destinations in mind.  This is what I experienced when I cruised down the the world’s 12th-longest river and the 7th-longest in Asia, the Mekong River.

#Eatsperience Hong Kong

It’s been almost 8 years since the last time I’ve visited Hong Kong. I am looking forward to see this city again and see what are the many changes. I’ve been there thrice in different occassion, two solo travels and one with my family. We were there when Hong Kong Disneyland Resort just opened and it was a Christmas Holiday travel with the family. Most of these photos were taken the first time I started taking solo trips out-of-the-country or out-of-town during my birthday month. Our first out-of-the-country trip as a family started when my father passed away. It was our way of mourning toRead More →

Growing up during my time, my parents and the people around me told me that girls should never ever do the first move in courtship. But as I grow older, I realized that it was the girls who always do the first move because them boys have to see some interest before they do their thing. See, they are afraid of rejection as much as any of us do. What I miss during my time though was when boys send love letter, flowers, chocolates , jewelries and seranade. Plus they are willing to wait for months or even years to get your sweet yes toRead More →

Clean Reserve Sustainable Fragrance

When I first got my hands on the Clean Reserve I got one big question in mind. What is sustainable fragrance and how they do it? According to Clean Reserve sustainable fragrance starts from the source of the ingredients they use in each scent. They partner with farmers from Southeast Asia who has knowledge and skill in eco-conscious extraction methods such as obtaining the sweet vanilla-tinged resin without harming the tree. Now that I know what is susainable fragrance is all about, I am curious about the smell. I got the Clean Reserve in Blonde Rose in 60ML bottle and the Clean Resere Warm CottonRead More →

My fascination about the Lunar New Year, Chinese Horoscope and Feng Shui started when I was a teen. I remember buying special Chinese New Year issues of broadsheets so I can read up tips and forecast. As much as possible, I try to do it at home and my family would not mind. They call me the “house witch” because I’d do those cermonies of lighting incense and candles in the house , doing chants, throwing stuff and setting up a special altar for this occassion. They never mind because it never hurt anyone. And I think most of them feel the good vibes IRead More →
