    The idea of writing this article was initially to help my business owner friends to have one-point reference on Types of COVID Tests & Costs in the Philippines.

    Review: Ellana x Project Vanity Life-proof Eyebrow Pencil

    Kamusta naman ang kilay naten? (How are your brows?). It’s been almost 3 months since lockdown and I’ve been DIY-ing my way through everything. From cutting my hair to shaping my brows. And I’m so glad I was able to score these Life-proof Eyebrow Pencils from Ellana, in collaboration with Project Vanity.    They already worked together previously on their Life-proof Eyebrow Gels that came in pot form. It got dry too fast and it was a hassle (for me) to bring a separate brush. While I loved the color & longevity, I wasn’t too fond of the formula and packaging. I always wish it came in a pencil.   …

    Parents, admit you’re wrong

    While I always admit to my child if I make mistakes. Today’s case was particularly special. A stupidity so huge it affected the entire neighborhood I accused someone of stealing.   The story of the missing phone We’re still on lockdown and all laundromats are still closed. This is one of the few things I learned on quarantine. Handwashing and drying clothes outside. Honestly, it was one of my favorite chores. Seeing the soiled shirts, towels, sheets, fresh and clean again. The sun naturally killing the bacteria and drying the fabric. This morning, after finishing my favorite chore, I went inside ready to watch the newest episode of Ru Paul’s…

    Kwentong Pilipino Podcast: Bedtime stories for kids!

    I’m not sure if I’ve told you this already. But I’ve been telling bedtime stories to macho kid since he was 6 years old. He was the one who asked me to. “Mom, can you tell me a story?” I would of course, warmly comply. Macho kid is growing up, and soon enough he would be too old to listen to my stories. That’s why I started a new podcast called Kwentong Pilipino. It’s a weekly podcast for kids (or adults), that’s all about stores for bed time.  Stories are based on famous Filipino tales, fables, myths, and legends.    Episode 1 – Si Pagong at si Matsing For the very…

    Working from Home (with kids and no nanny)

    Hi there! I’m writing this post as a supplementary guide for my talk on Lazada Live week. We’re still under lockdown as of writing, and businesses are now restructuring their strategy for the future. Digital is no longer the future, it is the present. If you want your business to thrive, you need to adapt to the changes of the time.  One of the perks of going digital is having your employees to work from home. I’m an employee, consultant, and owner. I’ve quit my day job since 2015 and have been working from home for 5 years now.  Plot twist: I’m a single parent, who takes care of my…

    KIKAYSIKAT DIY BLEACH (2020 update)

    Update: You can substitute the Alpine Milk with other FRESH MILK but not other evap. If you cannot find white henna, just use hydrogen peroxide. If you cannot find Ivory Soap, you can use Perla (plain) soap. Based on this image alone, you can already know what ingredients are used for this popular bleach formulation DIY. The story on how I learned of this is actually very sentimental. I remember it clearly, more than 20 years ago. My mom was a fan of anything skin-care related, especially skin whitening. She’s kikay like me! So it’s obvious I got it from her.     She told me a story of how my cousin was…
