Make Yourself a Canvass of Beautiful Colors

Wish Color Hair Spray Review

Spring is one of the most awaited season after winter as it is the time when splash of beautiful colors starts to appear on earth.

While we don’t have spring here in the Philippines and color is everywhere here, I was able to experience the welcoming of spring and the kick-off to summer at the Holi Festival of Color in Manila held at the SM MOA by the Bay first day of March 2015.

#HoliMNL2015

Holi is a spring festival from India that signifies victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships!

It was a great feeling to be acquainted with the Hindu culture. The event venue was brimming with beautiful Hindu people who are living and studying here in the Philippines. I also enjoyed a lot of Hindu food as their delicacies abound the festival area. There were a lot of Hindu performers and dances the whole day as they play a lot of Hindu song and dance and rituals.

#HoliMNL2015#HoliMNL2015
In Braj region of North India, women have the option to playfully hit men who save themselves with shields; for the day, men are culturally expected to accept whatever women dish out to them. This ritual is called Lath Mar Holi.

Traditionally, washable natural plant-derived colours such as turmeric, neem, dhak, kumkum were used; but water-based commercial pigments are increasingly used. All colours are used. Everyone in open areas such as streets and parks are game. Inside homes or at doorways though, only dry powder is used to smear each other’s face. People throw colours, and get their targets completely coloured up. It is like a water fight, but where the water is coloured. People take delight in spraying coloured water on each other. By late morning, everyone looks like a canvas of colours. This is why Holi is given the name “Festival of Colours.”

Watch this video of the Holi countdown: Actually there were 3 countdown for paint bombs!

All powder paint used in the event are washable and environment friendly and safe for any skin type!
It was a great timing as I have bottles of Wish Color Hair Spray that I remembered to try and review as soon as I got home from the festival!

Product Info:

It comes in 6 colors: Limited Edition Silver, Blue, Red, Pink, Orange, and Brown!
Wish Color Hair Spray Washable Review
How to use:
Shake well for 1 minute. Hold 8 to 10 inches away from hair then spray until desired color is achieved!

Here’s a video of how I used it:

Wish Color Hair Spray Review
What I think Wish Color Hair Spray Washable:

  • It is easy to use and easy to spray. Just make sure to shake very well before using.
  • It is very liquid and if you over spray it gets drippy and takes awhile to dry.
  • When dried, hair gets hard and sticky.
  • It has the consistency and procedure as a hair spray we use to hold a hairstyle.
  • I am not much in favor that it is on aerosol form though.
  • My favorite color effect was the blue followed by red and brown.
  • If you are into cosplay and you need a lot of colorful hair color, this is a good and cheap alternative!
  • The best part is the color washes off easily with just water! 

Do I recommend it?

Just like I mentioned above, if you are into cosplay and need new hair color for every character you wear, then buy this one.  This is also good to use on colorful festival such as the Holi Festival!  Make yourself a canvass of beautiful color!

 

Wish Color Hair Spray washable is available at Watsons! 

Stay gorgeous everyone!

#WIWTD 52: #SiningSaysay Philippine History in Art Exhibit

#SiningSaysay Philippine History in Art

History starts when man invents a system of writing. Through this system of writing, the human past is recorded and passed on to the present generation.   In the Philippines, the earliest evidence of writing is found in the petroglyps of Angono.  Consisting of line incisions, drawings of human figures and figures of triangles, rectangles and circles, the petroglyps, though still undecipherable, prove the human presence of the Filipino.

#SiningSaysay Philippine History in Art
Yesterday, we went to a special preview of the Sining Saysay: Philippine History in Art Exhibit at Gateway Galery in Cubao Quezon City where a showcase of large paintings were showcased narrating the saga of the Filipino people from antiquity through the colonial and occupation times, through the birth pangs of independence, to the present day.

The event was attended by the painters themselves whom we had the pleasure of talking to and more than just pieces of art and the Philippine History, these painters said this generation needed to see traditional works of art not manipulated by the technology of today.

#SiningSaysay took no less than five years to inception so all the 30 artist who participated in this exhibit poured their heart and soul on each of paintings in here.  Artist who commissioned paintings in this exhibit were Armand Bacaltos, Adi Baen-Santos, Benjie Cabangis, Adonai Artificio, Ben Cabrera, Angel Cacnio, Romeo Carlos, Chris Cruz, Ben Infante, Denes Dasco, Gig de Pio, Vincent de Pio, Grandier Bella, Neil Doloricon, Aileen Lanuza, Romeo Mananquil, Norlie Meimban, Norman Dreo, Armando Hidalgo, Gigi Javier Alfonso, Jonahmar Salvosa, Rando Solon, Julius Samson, Michael Velasco, Adul Asia Mari Imao, Jun Yee and Janice Young.  I had the pleasure of meeting some of the country’s best traditional artists who said they were the “last of the Mojicans” who does traditional painting.

“It is my belief that we have put up a sweeping spectacle of the rich, glorious fabric of Philippines history, society and culture that our countrymen, young and old alike, as well as foreigners, will be able to appreciate and learn from,” said UPAA President Ponciano E. Rivera Jr.

Take a look at this video to get a feel of the exhibit if you can’t come:

Here’s some of my favorite paintings:

Off shoulder top: FOR ME
Shorts: Uniqlo
Shoes: Gold Dot

The #SiningSaysay exhibit was put together by the University of the Philippines, UP Alumni Association, and Araneta Center and is open from 11am to 7pm entrance is FREE!  To get there just go to Gateway Mall take the elevator to the 5th floor and walk past the sky garden to cross to the next building.  That is where the gallery is.

Incidentally, I also went to the Makeup Magazine launch held at the Early Breakfast Club at Century City Mall in Makati wearing the same outfit.

First Look at Designer Hostel Makati Junction Hostel

Makati Junction Hostels

Although I travel a lot, even alone at times, I have never tried staying in a hostel ever because I fear I might be staying with a group of creeps or weirdos and sorts.  Sorry!  Yeah I am a pampered traveler or at least I keep caution when travelling alone.   I like to stay in my own private room, in my own bed and my own bathroom.  Because at the end of my adventure exploring a new place, I want to relax and get energized for the next day that I may not have the energy to socialize and mingle with some roomies.

However, the concept of hostels are a meant for budget travelers and backpackers who would rather spend their money on something else than just a place to crash in.  After all, they won’t be spending as much time in their room when traveling and exploring their destination

While I still have not stayed in, I was one of those who got the first look at a designer hostel in Gen. Luna Street in Makati, the Makati Junction Hostels My first impressions was NICE! It looks very cozy and every nook and cranny are picture worthy!  So without further ado, here’s how it looks in there.


Makati Junction Hostels

We went at about 9pm so my building pic is dark. But Makati Junction Hostels is a 4 story building with more than 100 beds!

Here’s the lobby:

Junction Hostel Makati

This was during the f*ckvalentine event at Junction Hostel last February 13, 2014. We were offered to stay but we decided not to that day as we have Vday plans next day hahaha!  But I / we will be back and stay on another night soon and tell you about the experience. At the moment I am impressed at this designer hostel.  Designer hostels are upcoming trend in the hospitality and accommodations business in the country and Ms. Cindy said expect more hostels like this from them!

Looking forward to stay here and meet new friends or explore the vicinity and as well as their other hostels opening around the country soon!

I have a lot of college friends who are now in Guam, while I haven’t been there yet, it is somewhere I would want to explore in the near future.  While Filipino visitors need a U.S. visa to Guam, the visa processing is more lenient now for those who want to travel to this closest U.S. destination in the country!

Yesterday, I was able to get acquainted with the Hafa Adai spirit through the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) as they briefly showcased Guam’s culture and exotic travel destinations that is something that will make travelers fall in love with their neo-island lifestyle.

Hafa Adai Guam Visitors Bureau

Guam is Just three-and-a-half-hour  away from Manila and is currently accessible via Philippine Airlines and United Airlines.

Beyond the island’s array of activities and tourist spots. Guam also holds annual events, one of which is the Shop Guam Festival, which aims to further excite tourists with additional shopping discounts across the island, on top of Guam’s tax-free shopping perks.

Experience the Best Summer Ever at the Slidefest Phiippines!

slidefest philippines #BestSummerEver #SlidefestPhilippines

Put water on a giant slide on a hot tropical country like ours, what do you get? The best summer ever with the Slidefest Philippines!

Breaking the monotony of the usual summer music and beach fest, there’s something to look forward to this summer 2015. Just imagine yourself on a floater and sliding you way to 1000 feet of pure happiness! The size of this giant slide is as big as 3 football fields, or 3000 doughnuts.

Slidefest Philippines is a family-friendly, adrenalin pumping slip and slide water event. It is more than just a slide. It’s a festival, an experience that brings our memories of our childhood to the next level. It is 1,000 feet of pure happiness.

slidefest philippines #BestSummerEver #SlidefestPhilippines

There will be music, food, drinks, water balloons, water guns, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit the streets of the Philippines. And have we mentioned that our slide is 1000 feet long? ☺

Slidefest will take over streets of your cities and other iconic locations, appearing and vanishing within 24 hours. One day, you’ll be sliding down the street with your friends and families. While the next day, you’ll be left with reminiscing fond memories of a truly unique experience.

How Slidefest Philippines works

SINGLE SLIDERS

Single sliders will get unlimited access to the slide… Or so they would wish. Single sliders will (obviously) get only ONE slide within their selected time session. We’re gonna go out on a limb and say it straight up that we do not recommend this option unless you are the type of person who can resist eating just one piece of M&M or pringles, stop at just one slice of bacon or stand up after a 2 minute swedish massage. Yes, the slide is 1,000 feet but trust us, with the amount of fun you’ll have, it will go by really fast and you’ll be left craving for more.

Early bird rate: Php300
Regular rate: Php350

 

WAVE SLIDERS

Wave Sliders get to enjoy the slide again and again, get some rest, talk to your friends, take some selifes and then go again within their selected 2 hour time slot.

Early bird rate: Php500
Regular rate: Php600

 

VIP SLIDERS

All day sliders are like wave sliders but on steriods. VIP’s can enjoy unlimited slides for the entire 12 hours of the day and will be entitled to an express lane similar to priority boarding in an airport. You also get cool Slidefest T-shirts and 20% off the other merchandise. And to make sure that you get top priority, we are setting a limit to the amount of VIPs we will accommodate.

Early bird rate: Php1000
Regular rate: Php1200

*With priority lane and Slidefest tshirt

This was not our first time here in Sandbox Adventure Park, we were there for the opening of Sandbox Adventure Park (story here), but when we were here we were not able to try the Avatar One , the first Roller Coaster Zipline in Asia as it was not operational back then so we took the opportunity to try it then after the archery!

Watch how the Avatar One ride goes:
It is not scary as it looks like, easy peasy really!

We enjoyed it though but if you want something more physical and challenging here in Sandbox Adventure Park the Aerial Walk is way much better. It has a lot of obstacle courses you need to finish from the starting point to the end point. Love it!

Sandbox at Alviera is just starting. Everyone can look forward to additional attractions and activities including night operations. With the Sandbox being opened at night, guest can finally enjoy outdoor activities under the star-filled skies! This will be complimented with the opening of the first set of dining choices in Alviera. Extreme group activities such as urban krafting, airsoft and paintball will also open this year! Exciting!

Sandbox at Alviera is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 5pm. For booking guidelines visit www.alviera.ph or follow them on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter @alvieraph.

How about you, have you been to Sandbox yet?

Stay gorgeous everyone!

The Amusement Park Ride I Will Never Try Again — Ever!

Sky Ranch Amusement Park Tagaytay

I was never afraid of heights, ever — but  this happened!

We were at the Sky Ranch Amusement Park in Tagaytay last Friday for Kenny Rogers Roaster . It was actually my first time to explore the place as although I’ve been in the area a lot of times, there was no opportunity to do so until today.    You can say that the place was a no biggie as it is just another amusement park, what make this place extra special was that it was at the side of the Taal lake with an amazing view of Taal Volcano.

The rides were not that biggie for me (so I thought) . I mean I’ve rode the scariest rides here in the Philippines and even abroad and it didn’t stop me from doing it again, until this one OMG! This just made me say never again!

That my friends is the Super Vikings

It looks simple and safe but yeah, truth be told, looks can be deceiving!

Here’s our game plan: Carousel, The Eye and then The Viking. Very simple, 3 rides, easy peasy!

The carousel ride was fun, kids ride, we even hopped horses and goof around taking photos while it was going around.

Then to The Eye. Super high. Super cold inside the whatchamacallit. It has airconditioning inside. And whoa you can see the entirety of Tagaytay City from up there!

Again this happened

 

 

The Super Viking ride was about 3 minutes. The end of this video was not the end of the ride but I was dying for the ride to stop .  I could have endured had it not been that long and scary.  Just when I thought the siren was the end of the ride, I was wrong it was the beginning of the deadliest part of the ride.

So, you have been warned:  When you hear the siren horn OMG! brace yourself. Like brace yourself!

If you look at he video you can see how when we are all on a sitting position, the tower just across us is standing straight in a vertical upright position, but a few swings more the tower is laying down on a horizontal position. There’s also this deadly shaking thing happening in there too and I feel like my bag will fall off my lap!

I have sworn after this ride not to ride this again, never. I just can’t.  (None of the bloggers in the video were harmed during the ride or while the video was being shoot!)

We all got off the ride dizzy and still catching our breathe. As soon as we were out of the Sky Ranch Amusement Park we went looking for a place to eat Bulalo to cure our dizziness!

How about you, have you tried The Vikings ride at Sky Ranch Amusement Park in Tagaytay before? How was your experience? Care to share in the comment section below?

Since we were at Skyranch Tagaytay already, we were taken for a mini-field trip to go back to our childhood days again at the Skyranch Amusement Park which is a stone throw away from Kenny Rogers roaster store!
