    10 Things to do in Guam Besides Shopping

    My US Visa is about to expire. After doing a bit of research online, I thought of visiting Guam. It’s only 3.5 hours away from the Philippines, and airfare is way cheaper than going to the USA itself. That’s why I didn’t hesitate to say yes when I got invited to Guam Visitors Bureau on their #InstaGuam event last January 5, 2020. If you’re planning to travel, why not #VisitGuam? I learned a lot of things you can do in Guam besides shopping and I”m sharing them with you today!   #InstaGuam I learned so much (and won a few prizes lol). Like, did you know that like the Philippines, it…

    I’m sure you’ve stumbled upon this post looking for some peace and quiet in the heart of Quezon City. You’ve come to the right place! Today we’ll be reviewing Cocoon Boutique Hotel. It’s eco-friendly, relaxing, and have excellent amenities at a fair price. It’s been almost 2 weeks since Taal’s initial burst of eruption (smoke and ashes).

    Prada 3 Piece Set Fragrance Collection Review

    I first got a whiff of Prada Candy thanks to a freebie sample from a makeup seller on-line. It was perfect timing because I was looking for a new signature perfume? Why? Because fragrances connect me to memories, and in moving on I’d like to forget (naks). Fragrances & Memories When we went to Singapore last year, I wanted to purchase a souvenir. Not just any random souvenir, but something to save that memory and beyond. A perfume. Scents are CHEAP in airports with lots of deals and gifts sets. So when I spotted the Prada Candy Gift Set for 95sgd (Set of 3 Scents), I never let go. Prada…

    Commute Directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App

    Grab is too expensive, Angkas is on the rocks. Today, I’ll be sharing with you the best commute directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App. When I used to be a student, there was no smart phones yet. No google playstore, no apple app store. There were no programs or services available to make our travel any easier. It’s either you have your own car or take a cab. I remember trying to memorize all routes I needed to go to-from school. The train stations I drop off to, the sidecars I rode. Ah.. good times! We’ve gotten too dependent on-call rides that have we forgetten the art of commuting?…

    My Experience on Different Fad Diets (Keto, IF, Recomp, Paleo, etc)

    From popular diet pills, healthy food deliveries, and different workout styles. Everyone has more or less, the same goal right? Build muscle, shed fat, get fit. One of the biggest factor in building the best body is DIET. But how do we know which ones really work and which ones don’t? Through trial & error. We are all different. We have different bodies, lifestyle, and sleeping habits. So it’s best to research and experiment to see what’s best for you (with doctor’s approval of course). Today I’ll be sharing with you all the fad diets I’ve tried through the years. So you can get insights not from a bodybuilder or competitor. But from…

    Blonde. Bleached. It’s an essential when we want to sport a bright hair color. But how do we keep our hair from getting brassy? I think I’ve changed my hair with every color from the rainbow.

    Joy-Nostalg Ortigas formerly Oakwood (Review, Rates, Photos)

    Staycations, we love them. It’s getting a vacation without the hassle of long commute. We just get what we wanted in the first place, rest. We’ve been trying out different ones across the metro and to be honest, most of them even the 5-star ones look the same. This makes Joy-Nostalg Manila in Ortigas different. It’s more than just a hotel, it’s feels closer to home. Joy-Nostalg Ortigas Room Options and Rates I used booking.com since they seem to have the more affordable rates when booking online. Studio Executive – 5,900php 1 Bedroom Suite  – 7,900php 2 Bedroom Suite – 17,900php (seems to be always fully booked tho) Joy-Nostalg Ortigas…

    Cleaning the Toilet – Domestication of an Undomesticated Mommy

    Here’s another confession. I’m an undomesticated mom. I was raised by my family relying on them or house help and it’s too late for the blame game. I don’t do the dishes, laundry, cleaning the toilet, etc. We’ve recently moved out from my parents (I’m a single mom) a few months ago and it’s only Jop and myself. We live in a small apartment so it’s easy to tidy up even for a newbie like me. The most challenging chore?  Cleaning the toilet. It’s the most used area in our house right? We do our #2 and #3 and we don’t want to use a stinky toilet so I asked…
