#HappyTaehyungDay! | For BTS V Cupsleeves Event Participants

30.12.20

First of all.... HAPPY TAEHYUNG DAY!!!


During initial planning of the Happy Taehyung Day Box, I was already leaning towards the Vintage Mail concept. Since it will arrive just in time for the holidays, I wanted the package to have that fuzzy ol’ Christmas gift vibe you get through snail mail.




Think receiving a box (some a bit squeezed from traveling with gazillion other holiday packages! 😅 Sorry!!! 😖), then feeling the nice cool breeze outside as you greet Mr. Postman. Then you head in to pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa before opening the present, thick jazzy Christmas tunes fill the air….you get the picture.   



So I started designing postcards, postal stamps, scrapbook pages, even a group polaroid with Starry Night border (one of Tae’s favorite painting!). Since it’s a throwback feast, I also added in a photo strip featuring Kim Taehyung through the years. Choosing which pic to add was hard, but discovering treasure troves of V's baby photos reminded me of his song Inner Child.  



Vintage and Old Soul: These are the descriptions that match Kim Taehyung. Who will attend dance practices donning his blazer and shiny leather shoes, and who will blast The Carpenters and Frank Sinatra during his live broadcasts.




I hope the Taehyung Day Box arrives on your doorsteps like a warm hug as we end the year. May it feel like remembering something familiar, maybe even get you a bit sentimental, before you drop it on your desk and go about with your festivities. ❤



What's included on your Taehyung Day Box?


1. Scannable Codes: QR Codes leading to random messages from Kim Taehyung, Spotify code for some good vibes while unboxing.




If you weren't able to join, feel free to try one of the QR and the Spotify Codes here:


2-3. Beret in random color. Taehyung's signature headgear. Beret comes with 2 Winter Bear Glitter Button Pins that you can attach on it, or use on other stuff like your canvass tote, pouch, room decor, etc.




What color did you get? Is it same as the one you're hoping to receive?


4. A Pack of V Prints: My personally designed scrapbook style cupsleeves and postcard, photo strip and polaroid for that vintage vibe.




5. Cup and Coffee: A pack of drip coffee from our favorite local brand @k0pi.ph.



6. VANTE's DIY String Bracelet: Attach the camera or paintbrush charm, or a "V" cube bead to the red string bracelet, or wear it as is.


Note: This pic was supposed to be my ARTIVIVE photo for this event! But when I tried adding my video edit, I realized that the photo has already been used! You can view it, too! Haha! So I had new ones printed, and thought of using this instead for a DIY Bracelet gimmick! Since naka bracelet din si V si pic hehe!



7. TATA Keychain. 


Just a small keepsake of one of Taehyung's cutest character creations!


"It's great that TATA can help those with low self esteem gain confidence, and I think TATA's job is to be a missing piece that fills up what each person lack." - Kim Taehyung



8. A Handwritten Love Letter: Notes about the box and the celebrant, contests that participants can join in, list of Taehyung's songs to stream, etc.



9. Korean Yakult - A quirky add-on! Must drink upside down!



Ang dami din pinagdaanan ng Yakult nato! 😂 Didn't realize that storage, packing, and shipping will be a huge problem, tuwang tuwa pa ako sa idea ko haha! Thanks to my mom's ref space, and the miracle of the coffee cup and bubble wrap combination, naka-raos naman and so far! All Yakult were delivered without punctures! "Si Yakult lang ang malakas!" 



10. Extra random 4R photo of Kim Taehyung: These are my current favorite photos of V! 


Having these printed is also a last minute decision, coz the ones I had earlier on are nice naman but everyday I discover new BTS photos! 😂



Extra Surprises!

Have you accomplished all of these?


1. Perfect this Taehyung quiz, and get a raffle entry to win an authentic Life Goes On Cassette!


*We will draw the contest winners TONIGHT via Instagram Stories!



2. Did you join all our cupsleeves events for this year? (Jimin, Jin, V) If yes, you can also join my surprise raffle where you can win authentic MOTS merch!


*We will draw the contest winners TONIGHT via Instagram Stories!




3. Another contest! Win these V DAY prizes by writing your #LettersToTaehyung on the vintage postcard! Tag me on your Instagram Story so I can see your entry! Let's flood V with love letters on his special day! 


*Will announce winner in a week so everybody can join, and I can check all entries.




4. I also made a Happy Taehyung Day Instagram Story Filter for you guys! I used V's BE concept room as background, and a smiley face doodle on the cheek. (meron nading pa blush-on and freckles yan, hehehe)


Feel free to use it when you post an Instagram Story to greet V, or as background for your unboxing, etc! ❤



5.Have you viewed our ARTIVIVE videos


Aside from the Simpsons painting on Taehyung's room, you can also download the ARTIVIVE app, and use it to view the photo strip for 4 short V videos!



These are the pictures with ARTIVIVE effect:



6. Here's a free downloadable Taehyung photo edit from one of our Taehyung Day participants Arkin (@rkntrcytndll on Instagram)! You can get a high resolution copy here: bit.ly/arkin-taehyungart. Feel free to print, use as your wallpaper, etc. Thank you Arkin!




7. Santa ARMY - And lastly, I just want to share that we have already accomplished our surprise and joint effort as Santa ARMYs for Maphi, our chosen ARMY wisher who is also a frontliner! 

In her letter to @BTSUnniesPH, she wrote pamper stuff on her wishlist for having spent the past 3 months in the COVID area. On her last update, she spent Christmas in the hospital too! 

Thank you for supporting our Taehyung Day project, in our small way.... we made someone happy!



Our gifts to Maphi! V is also her bias :)




BORAHAE!!!


BiBWorks Launches Mobile App to Provide An All-In-One Premium Delivery Solution—You Should Try It Out!

23.12.20

 BiBWorks Express (bibworks.com) recently launched its mobile app to bring an all-in-one premium delivery solution in the U.S. The company believes that everyone should have access to a delivery service that can provide all they need, whether for personal affairs or business dealings. 


Its CEO and founder, Justin Philip Cuevas, shares:


“We wanted to create a platform that would allow those who use deliveries to have access to a service, particularly during the pandemic and as we face the new normal. We noticed that, while the market has tons of delivery services, none of them can provide an all-in-one solution— and that’s what BiBWorks wants to address.”  



What BiBWorks Express Has to Offer  


The app has four main offerings:  


Errands  


The company’s main thrust is providing errands services that users can rely on with almost anything they need. If you need to buy items during the busiest time of your day, BiBWorks has highly trained experts who can carry out tasks with the same diligence and care as if users have done it themselves.   



Parcel Delivery  


BiBWorks offers same-day parcel deliveries. If you have any time-sensitive items that you need to send out, their competent drivers can pick them up from your place and deliver them to any destination. 




Food Delivery  


If you don’t have time to cook, BiBWorks offers two ways of ordering food. You can directly order from their partner restaurants but they also come with a Purchase Service, which our Drivers and Errand Experts will order on your behalf from your favorite restaurants, like In-n-Out Burger, so you can satisfy your cravings without even leaving the comfort of your home.  


Grocery Delivery  


BiBWorks understands how important time is, and spending it queuing in long lines isn’t worth it. With the company’s Errand Experts and Drivers, users simply have to create a task and wait for their deliveries at their doorstep.   


Why Choose BiBWorks Express as Your All-in-One Premium Delivery Solution  


BiBWorks is more than just an alternative to existing delivery services. They are an all-in-one premium delivery in the U.S. Here’s what sets them apart:   


Personalized Delivery  


A commendable feature of BiBWorks is that it allows users to personalize their deliveries. Whether it be for your personal or small business, you can rely on BiBWorks to give it a special touch that would make it feel like each delivery has been personally handed to them.   


Same-Day Delivery  


If you have urgent deliveries and tons of tasks on your to-do list, you only need to access your BiBWorks app, and you will have their specialists working on your deliveries quickly. You simply have to input your delivery and their specialists will carry out your requests instantly. You never have to worry whether your item will promptly reach its destination because you can track it within the app.   


Trusted Drivers and Errand Experts  


If you have a small business with valuables, you can hand them to the drivers, vetted and trained to handle your items with the utmost care. Each driver has GPS tracking devices to let you track their trip.   


Purchase Service  


The app also comes with a Purchase Service that allows you to have access to an all-in-one delivery solution. It doesn’t matter what you need—restaurant deliveries, grocery pick-ups, parcel delivery, furniture transfers, and home repairs. You only need one app for them all: BiBWorks.  



If you want to know more about BiBWorks Express, you can visit their website: https://bibworks.com. Download the BiBWorks mobile app from Play Store and Google Play

Fly To Palawan with Sunlight Air's Travel Bubble Package

21.12.20

I recently received an offer to travel again, and witness the launch of Sunlight Air--the newest player in Philippine aviation and charter industry. Although I had to politely decline due to holiday commitments with the family on the day of flight, the chance to fly again sparked hope in my kaladkarin heart. Really hoping that 2021 will be brighter for us travel bugs, one step at a time perhaps?




What is Sunlight Air?


Sunlight Air is a boutique charter airline based in the Philippines. It was founded on July 22, 2019, supposed to launch March of this year. They are dedicated to revolutionize air travel by providing a new concept of “aviation service” and a seamless travel experience to domestic travelers at a competitive price. 


With its tagline “Bringing Warmth to the Skies,” Sunlight Air will consistently bring comfort and warmth to every passenger’s air travel by manifesting Filipino hospitality in its services and interactions and implementing advanced processes in all facets of its business to make travel as hassle-free as possible.


Sunlight Air has three ATR 72-500 aircraft in its fleet, aimed to strengthen domestic tourism with routes that seamlessly connect the Philippine destinations, especially Palawan, Siargao, Boracay, Cebu and those that are still underserved by the industry. I hope my first flight will be domestic, I really want to support local tourism.




Why Choose to Fly with Sunlight Air?


With all the big players, why go for a new airline? Here are just some of the points raised during the media online launch last week:


- They have private lounges in Manila and Busuanga

- Discounts on COVID tests 

- Availability of on-site COVID Antigen booths inside the lounge 

- Availability of up-to-date COVID regulations on platforms 

- Maximum 70% load capacity 

- Flexible scheduling 

- Flexible rebooking  

- Strict COVID measures and practices all throughout and in between flights 

- Enhanced sanitation processes




Sunlight Air further changes the aviation game by giving ALL its passengers access to an in-flight entertainment system. With this, passengers can access high-quality premium content such as movies, music, news, magazine, games, and more in full HD 1080p format.


Sunlight Travel Bubble Package


During the online launch, Sunlight Air featured their first-ever travel bubble package in partnership with Asia Pacific Travel and Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort (SETIR). With the package, Sunlight Air and its partners aim to take small but safe steps in recovering domestic tourism towards the new normal. 


Asia Pacific Travel is the official travel agency of Sunlight Air with 8 years’ worth of experience in the tourism industry, while SETIR is one of the biggest privately-owned island resorts located in Culion, Palawan.


The travel bubble package starts at Php 40,000, with rates varying according to the type of villa (Studio/Cluster Villa, Two-Bedroom Villa, and Sirakan Villa). All accommodations are overwater villas with ocean view balconies. You can check this page for rates and other info: https://sunlightair.ph/packages​.




PACKAGE INCLUSIONS:


- 4 days and 3 nights accommodation for two 

- Roundtrip air transfer from Manila to Busuanga, Palawan and vice versa via Sunlight Air 

- Roundtrip land and boat transfers from Busuanga Airport to SETIR and vice versa 

- Private use of Manila and Busuanga lounge 

- Daily breakfast at Sun Café 

- One-time spa treatment for 2 at the Sanctuary Spa 

- One-time lunch or dinner by the beach 

- Php 4,000 F&B voucher   


Sunlight Air has been prepared for the new normal and was ever since agile to respond to the demands of the pandemic with its stringent health and safety protocols, decontamination procedures, and exclusive facilities that passengers may avail themselves the privacy away from the busy airport.



The launch of the all-inclusive travel bubble package with SETIR is set to take place from December 24, 2020, until December 27, 2020. The “Fly, Stay & Dine” to SETIR getaway promotes a concept of a safer way to resume domestic travel to Palawan with a chartered flight going to the private island.


Right now, the travel bubble package is only for Culion, Palawan, but soon Sunlight Air will also introduce partnerships with other hotels and resorts in different local destinations.

Room Update Part 2: Christmas Decors

12.12.20

Happy 12.12! 


I think it was in October when I decided that I have to put up Christmas decors in my room. Basta I want it to be a BT21-ish Christmas because seeing anything BTS makes me happy especially this year.


At this time every single year, I usually just watch mom work on our 80s Christmas tree, and fill the window outside our house with lights. But 2020, as we all know it, is really different. I made extra efforts to at least keep my spirits up. And since I spent almost the whole year in my room (obviously in my IG feed where most of my posts are here), and for sure the fam will celebrate all the coming festivities at home, I have some decorating to do!


With all the free shipping vouchers and discount coupons, sharing some Christmas decors that I got in Shopee that you might want to add to cart today! ❤ 


PS: If you're a first time Shopee user, use 1212ANAGON for Php 200 off! Minimum spend of Php 800.




Here goes!
