    Our Balangay Sunset Cruise Experience

    A week ago, Jec and I joined a Balangay Sunset Cruise at Roxas Boulevard. I almost didn’t go because I was feeling lazy at the last minute, but since we already made reservations, we still went. And I enjoyed it a lot! Motion sickness and phobias aside, it was refreshing to be away from the noise of Manila even for 2 hours. There were less than 20 of us in the Balangay, so it was pretty intimate. The boat could fit more people, but I guess they really intended to make the cruise for a close group of people. I’m not very good at describing my experiences and recalling all…

    The Most Intimate Makeover Ever

    V-Restore: Women Taking Control of their Health and Satisfaction A lot of us women are scared of having ourselves checked down there – that’s a fact. While vaginal health is important, it often takes a backseat due to various reasons including fear, embarrassment, and misconception. We often feel embarrassed of sharing our reproductive health problems so even if we have to, we delay going to an OB-GYNE, or worse, never go at all. The only time that we do go is because we’re pregnant or are planning to be. Aside from getting a wax for hygienic purposes, we ignore everything else our ladies need. But vaginal health is important. So let’s…

    Photo Dump: Oh Wonder Solo Concert in Manila

    About 3 months ago, I checked off an item on my bucket list – #46. Go to a concert. On July 21, 2017, at the Samsung Hall of SM Aura, Taguig City, I saw Oh Wonder perform for the very first time. Back then, I had no idea about their music, their duo, etc. Basically, I was clueless. But I’m happy I got dragged into this concert because now I have new artists to listen to. I had Jhanzey with me that time so I was able to get a rundown on who Oh Wonder is, what their music is like, what I should expect, etc.

    Photo Dump: #FergINePerpetuity

    A week ago, Jec and I attended his cousin’s wedding. It was so beautiful and all sorts endearing and worth remembering. I almost brought a DSLR to capture nice photos but decided against it at the last minute since it would be so heavy and post-processing SLR pictures don’t really sit well with me. I ended up using my phone, a one-year-old iPhone 6S. Despite some blurred shots (I had to really zoom in on some instances), I think I captured the essence of the event. I hope I did justice!

    Cultivating Relationships in Freelancing: The Freelancer Fair

    Over the years that I’ve been freelancing (LOL, as if I’m a veteran already), I’ve shared some tips and techniques to survive in the freelancing world. I’ve also laid the common pros and cons on the table for those who are thinking of entering freelancing but are not sure what’s in store for them. It’s easy to say that freelancing is chill because you can basically work anywhere – in your house, in a coffee shop, in a park, even on vacation.  But that’s just one of the perks of freelancing. When it comes to the cons, they could be as plentiful. One hurdle for freelancers is finding good clients.…

    My Love Affair with Art x Ärt Möd Fair 2017

      When I first visited the National Museum, I was ecstatic. Never in my my life did I even aim to go there. Maybe because none of us in my family strongly felt about art, specifically towards historical paintings. Maybe because we frequented malls more than museums. Maybe because I had no one to go with. Or maybe because, out of a shallow reason, I didn’t know how to go there or where it was even located. So I never went. But during the first few days of our dating phase, I learned that Jec is a huge fan of history. He really wanted to bring me to National Museum…

    Inspiring Success Stories From Bar and Board Passers (Success The MLQU Way)

    I have a friend who is a frustrated lawyer. Let’s call him James. James has a passion for politics, law, government, and the like. His Facebook account could be a proxy for Facebook news pages because of the abundance of news updates he posts on a daily basis. James breathes and lives politics. His genuine interest in the field has led him to follow prominent figures in the industry and to continuously gain knowledge through and from those people. Ask him anything about any current events happening in the country and he mostly has his own opinions on them. Like most, he also has his own political views and preferences.…

    Self-Love Club with PLUMP.PH

      Two Thursdays ago (May 25, 2017), I attended Self-Love Club’s first ever meeting.  I wasn’t really supposed to go but I ended up going because it wouldn’t do any harm, right? Albeit the hesitation and the mild confusion, I gave myself the chance to learn more about this so-called “Self-Love Club”. Besides, Danah and Stacy were leading the club, so I was sure a fruitful night was waiting for me. I was also just inside the house the entire week so I thought it would be a good chance to go out and have some real girl bonding while at it.
