It’s been almost two years since the first time I started a relationship with Organique ACAI. By the first year I have known the brand, I was the luckiest of all the people invited at the grand brand relaunch here in the Philippines when I won the all-expense paid trip to the California USA to see the home or Organique ACAI. The trip was supposedly to visit the plant, but since production schedule in US was changed to March, I instead covered the first and formal launch of Organique ACAI in the USA. I’m sure you are all wondering why the launch in US justRead More →

Just two of the events I attended recently happened at the Bonifacio Global City were the launch of the Olay x Lloren uniforms and the formal launch of Payoneer in the Philippines.  The Olay x Jojie Lloren collaboration was to create unique,  streamlined,  and elegant uniforms for Olay sales ladies at Olay beauty counters.  These ladies cam give skin care advise and use their high tech skin detection gadget to know your skin condition and which Olay product suits you.    I love the design,  especially the skirts.  They also look like FA’s  really nice.     Finally after being here since 2012 I think,  Payoneer hasRead More →

Never been to Indonesia, yet. But I might be there, soon. Just recently, I got acquainted with some of Indonesian products and culture at the recently held Wonderful Indonesia Festival held at Glorietta Activity Center, Makati City. The festival was meant to boost the ever-growing trade relations of Indonesia and Philippines.  Did you know that Indonesia’s export to the Philippines has reached US$3.92 in 2015 according to the Indonesian Ministry of Trade.  While Philippines investment in Indonesia for the period 2011-2015 approximately amounted to US$ 25 million.Read More →

Just recently, I went bag shopping with a friend.  While she was able to grab two bags from the  store I did not get anything.  I held a couple of nice looking ones, but none of them screamed my name.  Then the thought, “how many people have the same bag?”  So, I let them go. Incidentally,  the Timbuk2 Custom Studio Bag in Manila launch I attended was about designing your own bag yourself.  A bag that is completely unique and personalized because you created it from the silhouette,  fabric,  color,  texture,  size and everything else,  the bag will scream you!Read More →

A lot of my friends have been going in and out of Japan.  I must say I am very much envious of their travel photos.  I love seeing the modern, yet functional, sometimes minimalist aesthics of the places and items they capture with their cameras,  How I wish one day to see the land of the rising sun. While that travel bucket list is waiting to be crossed-out , I am settling for the amazing Japanese things coming to town.  Recently, at the launch of Ace Bags Philippines, I witness a performance of a Japanese three arts Mittsu No Geitjutsu.Read More →

I rarely watch television.  For one we don’t have cable and two I watch my TV series and movies I failed to watch online and I can do it at my own time.
