What Timex Hero watch suits my husband's personality and why?
I've known my husband for more than eight (8) years of being together and I could say 
Timex® Adventure Series™ Linear Indicator Chronograph with Intelligent Quartz™ Technology is the best watch that suits his personality because just like this very special watch, my husband is very ambitious, sophisticated and set his standards and ambition time frame high. 

Stainless Steel Case with Black Finish, is like the tendency of my husband with a quick organized mind and prefers neat and tidy surroundings. 

Black Genuine Silicon Strap of Timex Hero Watch  is similar to the faithfulness of my partner in our married life.

Honda launches the latest XRM bikes in Davao City

Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the country’s leading brand of top-quality motorcycles for personal and commercial use, launched the Honda XRM125, the country’s No. 1 under bone bike from the popular Honda XRM series, in this metropolitan city in Mindanao. Tagged as an “On and Off” bike, it is an “exciting motorcycle where you can go anywhere, do anything by riding the country’s number 1 Honda XRM125 and own every road.” At present, Honda has already sold more than 1.2 million units of this impressive motorcycle nationwide. But what makes the launch of the Honda XRM 125 in Davao truly significant is the fact that out of the 1.2 million units, 70% came from the Visayas-Mindanao area, making the region as the best contributor to Honda’s total sales of the XRM125.

The Season of Sharing is the best time to be RADICAL.

We are 43 days till Christmas day.  Yet our country Philippines are going into a very difficult disastrous events and experiencing extreme calamity like Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)  and 7.2 earthquake in Bohol. We can say that this quarter has the most pressure to all Filipinos. For this year, we are called to be radically different, to affect others to be radically different as well.
Instead of trying to curry favor with everyone by buying the most expensive Christmas gifts and getting into debt, take a deep breath and say goodbye to all that pressure.
Let's give gifts that count. Give gifts that have meaning. Give gifts that are priceless simply because it's impossible to put price tags on them. Now is the right time to "Give Yourself" - your time, your energy, your attention, your best for others.
These are few tips and ways when put into action, will make us happier and can help on our little ways that make a huge difference in the long run:

Mouthwatering Eat-All-You-Can Buffet Spread at Vikings, the LargestLuxury Buffet

Have a brow makeover experience at browhaus.

After so much frustration and a long wait, I finally found the experts that will be my fairy GodMother in realizing my dream of  a nicely-shaped eyebrow.

Why?There was a moment my brow was very short & thin which looks good when I'm on makeup, but really differs once removed the makeup. I looked more matured than my age with an over plucked brows.  I always believe Eyebrows frame the eyes and my face which is very true.

Archipelago7107 by Barrio Fiesta

When dining in a Filipino restaurant, we rarely get the full assortment of recipes we have in our country. The Philippines, being an archipelago, has a vast definition of Filipino cuisine. Filipinos from different parts of the country’s cluster of islands have been honing their own recipes and practicing different variations of a similar dish such as adobo and sinigang.
For years, most Filipino restaurants in the country serve only their perspective regional recipes. The north has theKapampangan recipes which gave us Sisig and Pinakbet, the south has given us InasalnaManok and KaninsaPuso, but not many Filipino restaurants have given us all of these recipes under one roof.

'Davao: Family is here' with Coca-Cola

It seems that I have come a long way from a simple lass in the province of Davao del Sur to a true blooded Dabawenya that knows what I want!
I was brought up in a conservative way and grew up in a family that loves excursion every weekend, to beach trip, travel to different places, and other fun get-togethers that aren't always complete without something refreshing, like icy cold Coca-Cola.

Experience LOVE at first Taste at Bulgogi Brothers

I confess, I love watching Korean romantic comedies. So when Algene, a fellow blogger invited me to experience the authentic Korean food of Bulgogi Brothers- a big "Yes" from me. Actually, it's my first time to eat Korean food because I'm not fond of spicy foods. But since I am fascinated by their people, country and culture, I wanted to try also to taste their food.

Visita Iglesia during holy week

I learned to appreciate the Visita Iglesia after doing it in Davao City many years ago while I'm still a graduating college student.
I did it several times over the years in Cebu, Bohol, DaanBantayan, and again back here in Davao.
As a fashion/art/architecture lover, I'm in for a Visita Iglesia so that I can reflect, and pray then sight-see and take photos.

Visita Iglesia is a common practice every Lenten Season. It's a chance to take my family,friends and special someone on a holy week trip to these churches. 

Human ♥ Nature Cool Peppermint Strengthening Shampoo

There is a "cool and refreshing" feel of the Human Nature strengthening shampoo in cool peppermint scent, and I'm not kidding.  It's a feeling of Coolness that isn't just in my mind when I'm using the shampoo onto my hair, I feel it too in my scalp. It became part of my daily routine of relaxing aromatherapy session. Using this shampoo relieves my stress from work especially when I have a headache.

Liter of Light brings brighter homes and future.

What is “liter of light”? It’s a clear plastic soda bottle filled with filtered water and bleach and installed in the roof as a skylight. The water refracts the sunlight as it streams through the bottle, dispersing the rays 360 degrees, thereby illuminating the entire room. The recipients of the solar bottle bulbs, who pay about $1 for the bulb installation, save money on electricity and cut back on the use of kerosene, candles, and other fuels that are responsible for indoor air pollution and fire hazards. – Illiac Diaz, activist and Filipino entrepreneur.
