Everyone's heading to Boracay today or tomorrow for the Laboracay, while ako self-imposed stuck sa city to finish more BU assignments with Pax before the big day! Kelan ba nag start ang Laboracay "trend"? When we went there last weekend, ang daaami nang tao... Paano pa kaya ngayon? Although mejo mesa-claustro ako most of the time, mukhang masaya din naman! So if you're going to this big beach party, enjoy! And iinom nyo nalang ako a! Haha!

I feel dyahe to take beach ootds... Naalala nyo my Zambales trip early this month, ni-isa I wasn't able to take beach outfit photos! Ang ganda ganda ng lugar, but medyo nahihiya ako mag posing, maliban sa nakakatamad din, haha! In Boracay last weekend, though, I was lucky to be with my MadhouseMNL team na ang buha…

Century Superbods 2014

Image
I still can't get over last weekend's adventure with my MadTV family. I had the chance to cover a big event in Boracay! Our goal was to take part in the challenges of the Century Superbods 2014 finalists--mula sa airport till their "coronation night". So instead of joining my blog friends Sarah and Paul sa afternoon bloggers flight, Kaloy, David, Rob and I dared to join the early flight sched just to cover the activities and be part of the challenges as well. Buti nalang di talaga ako contestant, less pressure. Haha!
More kwentos on this trip sa ibang post na (mahaba haba!).

Where to Next?

Image
Naalala ko the last time I had the SepAnx for a place was the morning we were about to leave New York . Parang sumisikip yung chest ko (OA, haha), tapos di ata ako makahinga (ng slight, hehe). I fought off the blues by just being grateful for the chance to travel to a beautiful place, and by thinking Where to next?



Anyway, I got this cool "passport" blazer from Choies.com, a perfect piece of clothing for the travel bugs like me! A reminder of how I want to fill up my actual passport with more destinations--both local and international! 
Last weekend, I had the chance to go to Boracay again after 3 or 4 years. The last time I had been there, napaka tourist / bagets mode ko pa nun. We rode the ATV, had photos with the giant bat (haha), nag zipline, helmet dive, paraw, and of course--pumarty sa gabi with the barkada. BUT for last weekend's Boracay, I went with my MadTV family for an all-expense paid trip, though it was a bit more for work. I did spiels with my new bro in t…

Carefree's Say No To #PantyWhining Campaign

Image
For us girls, natural na na we always find time to refresh...but sometimes freshening up is not enough to make us feel totally fresh (daming fresh!). Most of us girls may have only gotten used to keeping ourselves fresh from the waist up, while just tolerating that icky, unfresh feeling that also happens "down there".

As a brand that understands the importance of everyday freshness, CAREFREE® has embarked on a mission to help make girls truly experience what total freshness feels like so they can make the most of everyday. Hence, last March, CAREFREE® launched the PantyWhiners series, three online videos aimed at making girls everywhere realize the importance of taking care of what's down there. Through the use of three pantywhining characters - Wetty Betty, Smelly Kelly, and Itchy Trixie, CAREFREE hopes to educate girls not just on the relevant issues of everyday wetness, odor, and itchiness, but also on solutions they can do so they don’t have to live with these hassles…

The Dove Beauty Patch

Image
Here's my picture taken during the Dove Summit by professional photographer Pilar Tuason! Lahat kaming guests, after they made us remove our makeups, were lead to an impromptu photo shoot! Nobody expected this, kaya ako naka t-shirt lang (haha). I am actually happy with the turnout... The event was really uplifting, read more on the 2-day beauty summit HEREand HERE.


And now, Dove is at it again! Releasing another viral-worthy video wherein psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Ann Kearney-Cooke (Ph.D., Counseling Psychology) guided an experiment with Dove's Beauty Patch.  Watch how the body image and self-esteem of the participating women were affected while wearing the patch:
"When a woman feels beautiful, she radiates happiness and confidence, which inspires her life in a significant way,” said Dr. Kearney-Cooke.  “These women, like so many others, struggle to recognize their own beauty and it severely affects their daily lives. This ground-breaking e…

Dad's 60th: "When I get older losing my hair..."

Image
Palm Sunday was a day of love (sorry ang cheesy wala na akong maisip! Haha!) for the family. As planned, we booked a staycation at the homey Somerset Olympia Makati so we can have an excuse to have dinner in Conti's (where dad's surprise birthday was held). But before that, so the sisters went ahead and checked-in on time. When I got there, the room was invaded na... Thus #BloggerProblems ang ganap that I don't have a choice but take pictures of our upgraded room (thank you!) with "personal touch" na, haha!
Nice kitchen / counter area where--hindi lang ref and initan ng water ang provided--kundi SETS of kubyertos, plates, bowls, a neat sink, and a MICROWAVE! ;) Lovet.
Our desk and TV area:
The rents with Cea enjoying afternoon TV:
So, bilang personal space kid forever, I occupied this tiny but lovely couch-corner (with divider, hehe)
And then spent hours here in the pool area before we went to Palm Sunday mass and then before the "game plan"!
I went ah…
