My Home and Gadgets Review

Online shops are popular nowadays. Since there are products only available online and it's convenient, indeed a lot have already patronized this platform. 

I am a self-confessed online shop addict. I always find joy every time I discover legit and cool shops. Today I'll be sharing my newest one-stop online shop, My Home and Gadgets! :)

Eyelash Extensions For Men?: Asia's Lashes Review

After reading the blog post title, I know majority of you raised eyebrows. Haha. Yes. Eyelash extension is not that common in men here in the Philippines. But as we all know, as an adventurous type of person, who would say no to new experience? :)


I found this salon during boredom in a blog event. :) Since I still have an hour, I decided to try this out. :)


I am not gifted with many long lashes but still fortunate to have few with normal length. Therefore I am qualified for extensions. :)

#TIP: You have option to either use synthetic or human hair. If you have sensitive eyes, I suggest don't hesitate to spend on human hair. There were times that extensions needed to be removed since the customers had allergy with synthetic lashes.

HBC Haul and First Impression

I am an HBC user since 2012. Actually, this is one of the first brands I used before I started my blogging career. What makes my feet coming back to their store, is the affordability and quality in one. Yes. Their products are cheap but doesn't affect the quality of it.

You may read one of my favorite products of HBC here: Coron Adventure: What to Bring and What to Expect.

Here's my HBC mini haul I bought over the weekend. :)


1. Citrus Burst Bath Soap


This one is my favorite! :) This has similar scent to a known soap. :) Wanna know the price? 25 Pesos  (.50 cents Dollars) for 3 bars of soap. A bar could last up to 1 month of consecutive use. :) Steal, right? :)

2. Bleach and Ash Blonde Hair Coloring

I recently changed my hair color: from black to Ash blonde. Most all of people whom I encountered asked my hair color. So there, everyone it's Ash Blonde. :) Don't worry. I'll try to document how I apply next time. :)

2016 Year-end Post


"God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?"
- William A. Ward

I was browsing my Facebook feed when I came across this AirAsia Thank You video. The video highlights a year of memorable journeys and AirAsia’s gratitude to have spent this time with its loyal passengers. What a unique way of giving this season.

After watching this Airasia video, I have reflected about the things that happened in my life this past year.


2016 has been a great year for me. I’ve been blessed to explore different places in the Philippines. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone which I didn’t expect I would do. :) For the past years of my blog, I focused on skin care tips and product reviews for men and women. I never dared to explore. I was never tempted to travel. I was an introvert who was always confined in the 4 corners of my room. I never tried to mingle with others. 


2016 has been an eye-opener for me that there's a WONDERFUL WORLD beyond MY WORLD.


2016 has transformed me to appreciate others.

2016 has taught me that having a tan line is fine.

2016 has taught me that being lost in a place can be fun.

2016 has taught me to try new things.

2016 taught me to travel, solo. Yes, backpacking. And enjoy the beauty of traveling.



To all people I met and those I shared moments with, this year,

Daghang salamat.


Madamo.


Dios ti agngina.


Balbaleg ya salamat. 


Terima kasih. 


Muchas gracias. 


Samalaykum beks. 


$@LamzH@tz fh0uus$z. 


Salamat. 


Thank you. :) 

To my new found Malaysian and British friends who I met in Boracay; to my guide at Kawasan Falls who believed I can, and helped me when I did canyoneering; to people who cheered me when I did cliff jumping; to SM salesladies and their families whom I shared my Holy Week with at Baler; to my friend who toured me in Cebu; to hotel staffs somewhere in Baguio who let me stay for hours when all hotels in Baguio are fully booked, and to the owner of a transient house who texted me the following day when there was already vacant room; to Aurora residents who taught me how to make rice cake; to a British lady who commended my English speaking skills (she doesn't talk to locals because of language barrier); to the drivers of my 8 hour land travel to Baler who shared their life stories; to all people who took pictures of me when selfie sticks can't capture the scene; to everyone whom I shared a seat with may it be airplane, bus, jeep, tricycle or boat; to all joiners I met; to all brave hearts who travel alone like me; to street vendors and passersby whom I asked for directions, to all locals who genuinely smiled and welcomed me to their province, TO THE RANDOM PEOPLE WHO TOUCHED AND BECAME PART OF ME, 

Thank you for making my 2016, A-W-E-S-O-M-E! :)

Indeed kindness is in the air. I never imagined my trips would have great without them. That's the beauty of traveling. You meet genuine hearts. As with any journey, who you meet along the way can be more important than your destination. :)

How about you? To whom are you grateful this year? :)

By the way, here’s my Best of 2016 compilation with some pictures and videos I haven’t posted on my social media sites. :)
