Why I Haven’t Been as Active Lately

Hello! I’m just posting to let you guys know that I am still very much alive, just busy with work and other stuff, and I wanted to post about something personal while I’m at it.

I guess I’ve been losing my drive to blog and vlog regularly for a number of reasons. It has come to a point wherein I have lost the will to post regularly on my Instagram feed. No, I’m not depressed. But here are some of the reasons why I’ve been inactive:

  1. I really was busy with life...

A One-of-a-Kind Cooking Experience for Moms at Salu the Filipino Restaurant

During the past few weeks, I would catch myself thinking about how moms are amazing. It’s as if they can do anything, from cooking meals we all look forward to after a long day at work (or school!), to doing school projects, and even to being there for us when nothing seems to make sense. Moms are our personal wonder women, working without pay, tirelessly, out of sheer love for all of us.

This year’s Mother’s Day was a little different from the usual...

Applying for the UP MBA Graduate Program + the GPAT Exam

Wooh okay, I’ll be documenting my UP MBA application experience here. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that I made it through the first round, because I promised I won’t talk about the UP-MBA application if I’m not accepted. There are a lot of other great resources online, namely the PEX forums, Juanabeme, and Sabuhaynimay, all of which helped me plan my application and review. This is from my personal experience, so it might be different from the accounts of other people.

REVIEW: Mori Soba and Other Filling Meals at Nadai Fujisoba

The prices of ramen in many Japanese restaurants today make it hard to come back more frequently. I spend an average of Php 500 per meal when dining in ramen restaurants, and other Japanese restaurants that specialize in katsu or curry. While quite understandable because of the quality that these brands are known for, it’s a fact that the average spend in these restaurants make dining at Japanese restaurants a habit...

Holographic Hair is the Hair of the Future

There’s a new hair trend that’s taking over Instagram by storm, and I’m completely mesmerized by it! The holographic hair has been getting a lot of raves, which is believed to have been started by the Ross Michaels Salon in Seattle, Washington. With a few shades of Pravana, coupled with olaplex to maintain the blonde in the hair, holographic hair is born! And it’s every bit as magical as a unicorn.

Combat Skin Aging Round the Clock with Kojie.san’s Dreamwhite Line

What if I tell you that there’s a way to combat skin aging more effectively without requiring you to work harder?

The secret lies in boosting our skin’s regenerative process while you sleep. Our bodies need sleep in order to regenerate.

These include the skin looking sallow, and the appearance of undereye puffiness and dark circles...
