Shopee: Hassle-free Online Shopping Review

Hello online shopping fanatics! :) Today I'll be sharing my newest discovery in online shops, Shopee PH! :)

What is Shopee?

According to their Linkedin account, Shopee is a mobile-first social marketplace where everyone can browse, shop and sell. It is a platform tailored for Southeast Asia, combining the authenticity of a customer-to-customer (C2C) marketplace with payment and logistical support, making online shopping easy, secure and fuss-free.

I accidentally discovered them when I was craving for Samyang Fire Noodles. I kept watching Spicy Chicken Noodle Challenge on Youtube, and being an adventurous person, I also wanted to try on my own. :) Since there are only few physical stores that sell this, I need to find alternatives. :) I have browsed thru different online shops, but found the cheapest on Shopee. When I say cheapest, it's almost 50% less than other shops. :)

Ordering to Shopee was easy. If you want to know, check this out. :)

1. Download their mobile application.

2. Type the product you want in the search box.

3. Look for the best deals. They also indicate which are preferred. :) What's good is that there are online shops who accept Cash on Delivery. Yey! :)

4. You may message the seller if you have inquiries. You may also click add to cart if you will still be looking for other products. Or if you are ready to purchase, click Buy Now. Don't forget to indicate the quantity. :)


The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day

CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives. 

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. 

No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says. 

You may consider a set of hankies that will bring back the memory of her wiping out her tears of happiness upon knowing that she’s conceiving a li’l creature inside her womb. That’s you, of course. A loose yet comfy clothes shall make her remember that sort of a duster or preggy dress she wore in the laborious yet exciting “nine months” of gestation.


Doublemint Gum: Creating Sweet Connections Through Lovewraps

Being part of the media industry, I am always proud of my friends in the advertising world. They always make contents not only remarkable but also inspiring. :)

Garnering over 4 million views on Facebook and still counting, the latest Doublemint commercial about Sarah & Juan’s love story has touched the hearts of many Filipinos. It’s a love story filled with simple gestures of Sarah, offering Doublemint to Juan, and the latter, sketching the moment onto the wrappers.

Netizens have expressed their kilig for the couple and their story.

“Oh, I love this commercial, so much feels! Good job for creating this wonderful commercial Doublemint.” says Vera Reyes. Inchet Flores complimented Wrigley’s Doublemint Team saying that the commercial is perfect and she loved the story of the commercial.

Being the sentimental lot we are, one can't help but document moments like these--the first conversation, first date, anything that is a memory worth keeping. The story of Sarah and Juan has reached through our deepest feelings of finding love in the simplest things. We watched their story unfold and were glued to our monitors just to see how the story ends.

Now imagine if you could put your love story in those wrappers and share it to the world, just like what Juan did.

Edwin Wilwayco Book Launch at Leon Gallery

Fatima University Gallery Foundation is launching a coffee table book that features one of the country's leading visual and abstract artists, Edwin Wilwayco. The book highlights his works for four decades as a Master Abstractionist.

The book, simply entitled “Edwin Wilwayco”, brings to the fore the struggles of a young artist, early deciding that abstraction was the idiom in which he could best express himself, despite his graphic facility and fluency in representational art. 

Absorbing the inevitable influences of his college mentors, and enlightened by the entire history of abstraction, from Wassily Kandinsky down to Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Wilwayco synthesized, distilled and drew, from his own experimental alchemy, his own trademark characteristics of brushstrokes, gestural marks, formal motifs, and vibrant chromatics.

You know how I love this Filipino brand, Skin Potions. :) If you haven't read my blog about it, here is the link: Skin Potions Review.

Since I already hit the pan of my Serum, and recently had breakouts because of humid weather here in the Philippines, I went to the nearest Skin Potions kiosk.

These are the products I bought: :)

Sangobion holds biggest blood health event for new campaign

This year is shaping up to be a big one for anemia-fighting iron supplement, Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous gluconate+vitamins & minerals). After successful years of helping Filipinos overcome iron deficiency anemia, it recently launched another large-scale campaign featuring its long-time ambassador, Sarah Geronimo. Held at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, this record-breaking blood health event, back-to-back with a star-studded concert, was rightfully called “Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event.”

The event was an avenue for Filipinos from all over to have their blood checked, in line with Sangobion’s goal of transforming the nation with healthy blood, one person at a time.

Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy is part of Merck Consumer Health’s (maker of Sangobion) WE100 initiative. This aims to help prepare society for a new era of people who live to a hundred years. It is rooted on the belief that living more years should also mean living a life that is healthy and fulfilling. This is the vision for all generations. By offering quality products, providing activities, and holding events such as Sulong Dugong Pinoy, Merck strives to measure up to the WE100 objective of helping society live 100 years. 

In the words of Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Merck Head of Marketing, “The goal is to really push for the importance of having healthy, anemia-free blood. We believe that if every Filipino realizes the power of having healthy blood, then we will be able to take significant steps toward the rise of our nation.”
