Room Update, Part 1

Monday, November 09, 2020

I started cleaning up and decluttering my room again, in preparation for the holidays. Unlike the past years that I just rely on my mom's living room Christmas decors, down to our 1980s plastic tree, I decided that this year I have to make my room a little festive too.

My first agenda: Shake up the shelf arrangement. I removed my Kdrama plushies and travel souvenir clutters, and replaced them with some of my vintage cameras, displayed side-by-side with my small Funko Pop collection. 

I also dusted and rearranged my BTS and ASTRO collections. BTS is now taking up 3 (!!!) layers of my shelf. What started as just a TATA collection, I am now obsessing to get OT7* of everything.

*OT7 is a term in Kpop where you stan** all 7 members of the group.

**Stan is another lol Kpop term which means to ultimately like, or to be in favor of.

Some additional room decors that came in the mail today, and one landed on my shelf and I'm in love with it! A Salvador Dali inspired melting clock in bronze frame drips from one section of one BTS section to another. I'd like to get another one in silver! 

With no batteries included in the package, I kept both hands of the clock at 12, or Zero O'Clock, hehehe. 

To avoid stretching sidewards, and instead grow upwards, I also tied up the branches of my big room plant that I've been sleeping next to for more than half of this pandemic lockdown. I am not sure if this is okay to do, will try to consult my sister later. 

I also got a new plant pot tray for it (finally) to color coordinate the room. I've been using mom's metal Christmas themed tray ever since I got this plant, never even bothered about aesthetics. I wonder how the 'Grammers do it? Keeping the room Insta-ready at all times is hard!

Lastly, but just for this post, I also got myself a green plastic old school telephone decor, which doubles as a coin bank. I got this pre-BTS BE comeback teaser, but now it seems as if I took it straight out of V's homey, retro room!

Still waiting for some other things, will try to make another blog post when they arrive! Hope to see you again by then. :)


DIY Idea: Customize Your Levi’s® Trucker Jacket!

Friday, November 06, 2020

2020 taught us a lot of things, but if there's one thing that I will count as a blessing, it's that staying home ignited an old passion for creating things with my own hands.

One of my many DIY activities this quarantine: Made my own gingham face mask!

With no big gatherings, no countless nightly Christmas parties and dinners, and no face-to-face gift-giving, one way to reach out to our loved ones and show that that we truly appreciate them even at a distance is by gifting something that you made yourself. 

From using the skills you've learned during the quarantine, you can either bake cookies or ube cheese pandesal, give small pots of plants from your mini garden (hello plantitas!), or get your hands on your craft materials to create something that will make your family and friends feel remembered.

If you're looking for something unique and fun to do, Levi’s® just launched their ‘Tailor-It-Yourself’ (T-I-Y) kits. The limited-edition kit comes with Php 4,000 worth of Levi’s® products and each kit comes in a Levi’s Box and a T-I-Y Kit Pouch. It includes a Levi’s® Trucker jacket, fabric cloth, patches, pins, and fabric glue for easy application. It's a fun activity that you can do even at home!

Got my own Levi’s® T-I-Y Kit a few days ago for the media event. We started with our little projects together, via Zoom!

Ang fun nya! Even though we just said hi to each other via Zoom's chat box, munched on our snacks while DIY-ing (or T-I-Y-ing!) in our rooms, and showed-off our creations through the camera, it was really interactive. One of the things that I truly miss is attending these launches and events with blog friends. 

Wearing our "creations":


The T-I-Y kits will be available until supplies last from November 6 until November 22 at and all Levi’s® Tailor Shop branches – SM Makati, Robinsons Place Manila, Ayala Manila Bay, and Robinsons Place Iloilo. Kit contents may vary and are non-exchangeable.

Four themes that you can choose from for your T-I-Y project:

Basically Cool 

For those who prefer a basic and simple design that includes trendy and bold statement patches.


Down to Earth 

Nature inspired set that includes floral prints and patterns. 

Trend Setter

To those who want to make a statement with bold and loud colors and trendy patterns. 

Creative Spirit 

Mismatched colors and patterns that includes fabric pens that allow you to really personalize your denim.

Sharing what I came up with earlier! BTS-inspired jacket that I will definitely wear on the day I get to watch my favorite group in South Korea again (fingers-crossed). BT21 patches I got from this page.

How To Avail The Starbucks 2021 Planners and Organizers

Thursday, November 05, 2020

A week ago, I was talking to my childhood friends about our Starbucks story. Back in high school, having Frappe in Starbucks Torre Lorenzo was already a luxury! We would sneak out of our school (Gate 1, haha!), and cross multiple streets just to hangout and have a cup of Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino--which I meticulously saved up for the whole week with my small baon.

Growing Seoul Bucket List: Seoul Sai's Virtual Tour

Tuesday, November 03, 2020

Took another virtual tour yesterday, this time with Seoul Sai. 

Few weeks ago, I was hit by their ad on Instagram and immediately signed up. I was waiting for a similar Airbnb Online Experience before this, but glad to see this free offer of a (virtual) tour around Seoul!
