Thank You Samsung Philippines!

One of the best things that ever happened to my blogging career (chos!) this year is being part and being invited by Samsung Philippines to their events, launches, etc. I'm also thankful to a dear blogger friend Ria for getting me and my sistah Nikole in to Samsung's media family (yeah!).

Samsung Philippines take care of their partners very well I must say. They're very generous and the queen of Samsung's Public Relations, Ms. O is very respectful and accommodating. You will never feel that her position has got to her head in any way. Newbies or pro, we're all treated fairly. That's why, SAMSUNG PR and Ms. O indeed rocks!

The Face Shop Lip lovies

I want to thank my male friends in the office for they have given me such wonderful gifts. These two Face Shop lip lovies are indeed hit to every women. But I like most the Fresh Lip Balm, it was always present in my purse  since day one. I love its texture, its smell and its taste!   I cant' just get enough of it I would put it on every night too before going to bed.

Anyway the other lip love is a lip gloss tastes quite bland. I also don't like how it made my already full lips fuller. The texture feels really thick on my lips and the shades of pink don't suits me I think. But when the other colleagues in the office tried wearing it on their lips, they look "bagay".

The FaceShop products are available in leading super markets and department stores, BUY NOW!

OPI's "You're such a Kabuki Queen" Polish

I so love my polish today, OPI's "You're such a Kabuki Queen". The swatch is glossy in hot pink and  give my nails some head turns :). I had it painted from one of my fave nail spa, the Elite Nails Spa that is  owned by a friend. They have a lot of nice lacquer shades and nice brands of nail polish including the elusive OPI. You'll really have a hard time choosing what to put on your nails because everything looks really nice. :)

I suddenly came up with my own Christmas wishlist when I'm actually not into having one. I'm actually shy to have one and announce to my family/friends what gift(s) I want to receive this Christmas aside from, surprises are a more hit to me.

But I was thinking for the past few days on how, in my own small way I can be of help to our fellow kababayan who were affected with the loss of their loved ones, houses and properties due to the recent outburst of typhoon Sendong in the northern Mindanao. So I quickly made a shoutout in my facebook account and listed the stuff I want to receive should my friends and family would care to give me one but with an option to donate to the victims of calamity. Here's exactly what I posted: 

Before it Explodes...Reset

If you're familiar with Charice's songs, the title of this blog post may look familiar to you. More than how great Charice singing these songs, I found the lyrics even greater - it has depth meaning that I and my current state can so relate.

I guess, the past month/year has become unhealthy when it comes to my relationship with my better half. I had thoughts I'll be leaving the house when 2012 comes in. I was decided and I guess the song "Before it Explodes", can explain better why...

High School Reunion

Thirteen Years after, I will be seeing my schoolmates this coming weekend for a Grand Reunion organized by a team of dedicated people, I’m actually excited! To plan and organize a gathering where 1000 people are expected to come is a no-joke.  I’ve seen a few disappointments aired over in our group’s page in facebook by some inconsiderate people who, instead of trying to find a way to be of help with the organizers, chose to be pa-DIVa.  Some comments may be reasonable but if people are already reaching out so that both ends could meet half-way, I don’t think we should make our confirmation of our attendance/presence as something hard for them to deal with. 

The big fuss over n’ over is somehow energy-depriving and irritating that’s why I’d like to commend my great batch-mates who took the challenge and were able to pull-off things altogether. Because mind you, my school – Rizal High School is indeed one of the world’s most’ and once hold a record of having the highest population of students in Guiness record.  Who would tell me reuniting these students (1000+ in numbers) for a grand reunion is just a piece of cake? Nobody, I guess. Facebook has been a great help too to find and call everyone who's on for the gathering.

Manila’s finest fashion bloggers will leave their laptops at home once again to attend BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (Part 2) on December 3, 2011 at Treston International College, Taguig, this coming holiday season.

It is the second installment of the first-ever Bloggers United: An Interactive Shopping Affair, which was held last May. Due to insistent demand from readers and bloggers alike, Bloggers United ( team in partnership with the country’s largest online shopping website, Multiply Philippines ( have gathered Manila’s fashion bloggers to sell their pre-loved but very stylish closet pieces!

This event is the perfect opportunity for both bloggers and their adoring readers to mingle and personally interact with each other. Fun contests and exciting giveaways from sponsors and entertaining performances from bloggers (Walkie Talkies, Reese & Vica) themselves will definitely keep this event from being a dull one.

Some of the notable bloggers attending the event include Divine Lee, Laureen Uy, Kookie Buhain, Lissa Kahayaon, David Guison, Karl Leuterio, Patricia Prieto and Preview Magazine’s own Daryl and Andre Chang.

But because Bloggers United wishes to go beyond the geographic limitations of the archipelago and extend its reach beyond Metro Manila and so for this event, they are flying in some of Cebu’s very own fashion bloggers which include Kryz Uy, Eden Villarba, designer Yves Camingue, Gillian Uang and Mildred Zapanta and a few more.

Part of the proceeds from this event will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation ( for its school building project, a small but significant step to improve the Filipino youth’s access to education.

The organizers behind BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (PART 2) are Ana Gonzales (, Melai Entuna ( and Aisa Ipac (, a team of blogger friends encouraging camaraderie and sense of “community” among Manila’s (and eventually, the country’s) fashion blogging community through events and productions like this.

This is a one-day-only event that you shouldn’t really miss! It will be in a bigger venue with twice more the number of participating bloggers to meet! This is the perfect shopping day this Christmas because the most affordable and most fashionable clothes, accessories and footwear will be up for grabs. See you!

Video: Coca-Cola Where Will Happiness Strike Next: The OFW Project

0 just saw this video after some friends in facebook shared and read some comments, I got curious and hit the play button., start pa lang ng video I was teary-eyed na (I'm too shallow). But this is worth sharing and re-blogging, see for yourself, such a heart-warming 4-minute of unexplainable joy brought me to tears after watching it.

Share with your family and friends especially to our modern heroes, the Overseas Filipino Workers, I hope not only Coke will think of projects like these, cheers!
