5 gadget essentials for your solo travel

Last April, I went to Bangkok, Thailand to attend Coldplay's A Head Full of Dream Concerts and tour the city. It is my first out-of-the-country travel alone which is not work-related. 

Since Thailand is a non-speaking country, it surely is hard to be alone but five gadgets helped me get through this trip. I listed them down and hope these will help you:

Cinderella is in town!

Passing by SM North Edsa The Block, I saw Cinderella displays which caught my eye. In celebration of women's month and just in time for the screening of Disney's Cinderella live-action which started last March 12 (Yes, you can catch it in theatres now featuring Frozen Fever short film), they've decided to have Cinderella as their theme for this month's display.

I took random shots and thought these are worth-sharing:

Jonathan Adler, Kate Spade,, Daphne x NBS and PB

National Bookstore and Powerbooks keeps getting better and better as they do not only have new local and international titles, several book signing of best-selling authors, they also now bring in three new brands in the Philippines. Last December, they launched Kate Spade New York, Jonathan Adler, and as an addition to the growing number of brands they are carrying.

This brings delight to shoppers who only used to see these collections online. Thanks to NBS and PB, we now have access to purchasing these designers' stuff! Each brands has its own personality and all offer quirky, fun and quality items perfect for our collection and gifting.

I recently visited Powerbooks Greenbelt 4 branch to check out the three new brands and I found interesting items on display. Let me give you a sneak peek of what they have in store for us.

Gift ideas for him and her: Typo and Wonderpop

So it's Valentine's day yesterday and so there are a lot of commercialized cheesy stuff being sold again. 

This should have been a stand-alone post on Typo but I figured it's also timely for the Love month. This could also be applicable on other occasions if you wish. 


There are several choices of gifts to gives for girls, bags, dress, shoes, stuff toys and random stuff, Typo offers just that. If you frequent Instagram, you probably have seen this store on your feed. 

Typo opened their store in Manila late last year. It is an Australian brand which is a flagship of Cotton On selling various stuff such as notebook and journals, tech and travel accessories, decorations for your office and home and mostly artsy stuff. I bet a lot of hipster will love this store as it offers really cool stuff perfect for personal retail therapy or gift ideas. They opened their first store in Trinoma and opened their second branch in Greenbelt 5. I only visited their GB5 branch and I will walk you through it in photos:

Photoblog: Art Fair Philippines 2014

Before I continue this post, let me first warn you that this is going to be long and very visual. 

Okay, continue...

"Parking lot turned art haven" that's how I will describe Art Fair Philippines 2014 held on February 20-23, 2014 at The Link. I was overwhelmed by the installations and great talents, I hope everyone will get the recognition they deserve.

I am reminiscing last year's Art Fair because Art Fair 2015 opened yesterday. It will again be held at The Link and will run from February 5 to 8, 2015.

I will include almost all the photos I took at the Art Fair Philippines 2014 to somewhat give you a tour at the 28 galleries installed in no particular order below:

5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

Yes, it's been more than a week since the New Year so allow me to greet you a Happy New Year! 

It is already 2015. Other than fireworks, abundant dining tables and festive mood, there's no better way to start the year but to have a light heart, a smile and clear disposition.

Let all things be amazing this year

Huge sale as H&M opens in SM Makati

They say that fashion never sleeps, is that the reason why several Filipinos camped in Mega Fashion Hall from the afternoon of 16 October til 17 October 2014?! The answer is maybe. 

Oops. Wrong store advertisement!
They camped in and lined up for a Swedish fashion brand, H&M store opening in Manila! But why?
