Digiperm Experience at Beauty Brick Hair Art Studio

Last November, I had my first perm done so badly that I steered clear from having my hair touched by other people. I have natural wavy hair, but had been wearing it straight for more than seven years so I decided to flaunt my curls by having a perm. Unfortunately, my hair was murdered in that first experience. To read more, you can find the entire story here. My hair was growing longer and the curls dried and dull. Wanting a new hairstyle, I googled for some pegs and found myself liking those with bouncy waves achieved by having a Read More …

Let’s get social!

Dear fellow bloggers, Aside from your blog, where else can I see you and your lovely thoughts online? Reading other people’s blogs makes me feel happy and inspired to read and write more. It also gives me glimpses of the writers’ personalities and ways of thinking. Most of the time it makes me curious to know more about the blogger behind the interesting thoughts and words. Aside from comment exchange, I want to keep in touch with special and kind people I am meeting in this blogosphere in other media as well. Does it sound insane and stalker-ish? Social Media Read More …

Bloggers Must Haves: Essential gadgets

This topic has been sitting in my backlog posts for almost two months now and I am happy to finally put it live. After acquiring a new phone last July, I felt more powered to keep in touch with my family and close friends over the net.

I am so happy that after two months of its official release, I finally got my hands on Samsung Galaxy S4. Blogger’s best friend #1: Trusty smart phone Okay, treat this Read More …

My story: Moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org (Part I)

I started blogging since March 2012 using a free account in WordPress.com. Writing became a helpful distraction at the time. Soon, I was overwhelmed by a number of people liking, commenting, following, and even contacting me through my site. In less than a year, I got more than 3000 blog followers which I initially did not expect. I felt very much appreciated that I continued blogging more. However, I had a terrible blogging nightmare few months ago which scared me of losing all my posts and interaction with my dear followers. For a week, my site was stagnant and I Read More …

Fan girl: I met SHINee’s Min Ho!

I didn’t expect I would immediately adapt to my new working surrounding and colleagues, but shortly few weeks after I started I think I have found a friend. Jelyn, a Public Administration graduate from UP who is four years older than me, became my instant friend right after the final interview in my company. We share the love for food: pasta, cake, milk tea, and Oreos. We also love shopping, pigging out, taking photos, and immersing to different cultures. One time, we had a lunch out since there are too many important people conducting meetings in our company. While deciding Read More …

Thank you and See You Soon!

On the last Friday of April, my brunch buddies and I went out for dinner. Most of them haven’t eaten a Korean dish that was why I suggested a nearby authentic Korean restaurant for us to dine in. This get together was not thought out of nowhere; there was an important reason for us to gather and share a delicious meal. It was my farewell dinner treat. A month after graduation, I was accepted by a knowledge outsourcing company for an international publishing client. Stepping out of the comfort of school and home, I was nervous how to face the Read More …

On being Aphrodite: How far can you go to be beautiful?

Few weeks ago, my friend, Micah, invited me to spend time with her after work. She suggested going to our basic hangout place, SM Mall of Asia. Having nothing else to do after, I decided to come along. Apparently, it was on her schedule to go to our local waxing salon to de-hair herself. With enough cajoling from my other colleagues to have my body hair under the mercy of strangers, I settled for “I will try”. And I did try. Lay Bare Waxing Salon is a waxing service franchise from US. I don’t think a lot of Filipinos are Read More …
