Octoberfest

Every year, our city is celebrating Octoberfest and this usually happens during the last week of the month.  This once a year "party on the streets" celebration is usually done in conjunction with the "Halloween".  During these days, you will find live bands on stage along the busy street of Magsaysay Drive.  Live band competition has also been one of the highlights of this event.  Watching the competition, you will be amazed by the competing bands performances.  I'm not so sure if they're using sdx but you will surely be delighted with their kind of music. 

Aside from live band competition, you would also feel the "real party atmosphere" dining on the streets and watching people come and go and participate on various activities prepared for the public. Drinking, dancing and partying is just a common scenario but you could also watch some variety shows and if you're lucky enough, you would also have a chance to see some famous celebrities invited just for the event. 

Indeed, Octoberfest is always being looked forward to every year and I'm glad that I'm now here to witness the event.

Caring For Your Feet

I regularly go for manicure and pedicure.  I love to have my nails done and for me, it's part of my get up, however I do not regularly go for foot spa.  Although I would admit having this kind of treatment once in a while, I do not really put much effort and concern about my feet.  Because of this, I suffered from cracked heels.  Little do I know that just like our hands and arms, feet should also be well taken care off.  After all, it is the most abused part of our body, yet when it comes to proper caring, it is always being neglected.

I do wash my feet regularly, in fact I do it few times a day.  I normally wash my feet with soap and water and I make sure they are clean before I finally go to bed.  However, I think I lack on moisturizing my feet daily.  I never put lotion, oil or foot cream every night which I think should be the right thing to do.  Now, I make sure that I apply lotion or petroleum jelly and wear socks before I sleep which I believe is necessary to seal in the moisture.

I don't have problem wearing the right foot wear as I always make sure that what I wear is comfortable enough for me.  I also seldom wear high heels as I'm already tall.  I think because of this "cracked heel experience", I will now be more careful in taking care of my feet particularly in using the right products to moisturize my feet.  I would also consider going for foot spa treatment on a regular basis.




Caring for our feet is as essential as caring for other parts of our body and should also be a priority. 

It would certainly be nice to have a happy feet. :)

Zalora Shopping

It's been a while since I published a post in this blog.  I was preoccupied`with many things lately, thus I seldom find a time to blog.  This is precisely the reason why this post on Zalora shopping was made quite late.  My daughter Mika shopped at Zalora around last week of August I guess and I just wanted to share her experience here in this post.

It's not actually the first time that we shopped from Zalora but just like the first time, everything was done fast and efficient.  Few days after she made her order online, she already got her package.  She was extremely happy to receive her new pairs.



Mika decided to purchase these new pairs of shoes after having learned of the site wide sale.  She was happy to get a huge discount.  After all, she used her own money to buy these shoes. :)  It's a good thing that she knows how to save and handle her money and doesn't need to bother me every time she wants to buy her stuff.

I could not vouch on the quality of these products yet though as she has only acquired these more than a month ago.  I will definitely post here in case something went wrong with the purchased products but so far, no problem has been encountered yet as of this writing.




The best thing about online shopping is saving your time and money on unnecessary expenses should you made your purchase from a physical store.  Not only you have to spend on transportation but you could also save on unplanned purchases and dining in on expensive fast foods and restaurants around the mall.

Pinoy Big Brother All In


I was watching PBB last night and was so excited to know who will finally land to the "Big Four".  In my heart, I knew that Loisa will be evicted as seen from the surveys on FB and Twitter.  I am not a fan of Jane but I know that she's so strong and has a lot of supporters which could very well be seen from the number of votes she's getting every time she's being nominated for eviction.  She really had a huge amount of followers in the outside world.  

Personally if I have to choose, I would go for Daniel. For me, he should be the big winner as he had shown exemplary traits and talents while being inside the PBB house.  Last night, all the highlights inside the PBB house from the very beginning till the last eviction night were shown and from there we could see how each house mate proved himself/herself in the competition.  There are so many exciting events inside the PBB house from their simple day to day life to the simple and complicated tasks from "Big Brother" to the unforgettable visits of some famous celebrities.  I've seen that Mariz got a gift from her idol Yeng Constantino.  I wonder if it is an electric guitar from http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pedal-lap-steels but I really like it's color and design.  No wonder Mariz was so overwhelmed and can't hide the excitement in her face.  I think Joshua got a guitar too but I forgot from whom.

At any rate, tonight will be the "Big Night" and the public will now know who will emerge as the "Big Winner" from the "Big Four".  I wanted it to be Daniel but from the looks of it, it will be Jane.

Anyway, best of luck to the "Big Four" and I guess these four house mates all deserved to be in that position based from what they have shown and proven during the competition.

Family Day Before Hubby Left Us

my son...he has grown up very fast

On the last day of hubby's vacation here in the Philippines, we've decided to give him a treat.  We wanted his last day to be well remembered and memorable so we have arranged for a family fun day and that includes a visit to harbor Point inside SBMA, a whole body massage treat at City Spa, an afternoon snack at a Korean restaurant and a coffee treat at Bread Time.


We have strolled around the mall and decided to have some photo shoots at the River Walk.  Afterwards, we sent hubby to City Spa for the pre booked full body massage.  He felt so relaxed and refreshed after that massage and we told him that that is a bonus treat for all his hard work while he was here with us in the Philippines.  You see, he's practically doing something everyday in the house since he arrived last April and that includes cleaning, tidying up, repainting, supervising repair works, cooking and even buying our foods from the wet market.  He really would like to make it up to us for the lost times and we appreciated it very much.

Since our son Edmar has a lot of Korean friends, he's so familiar with all the Korean restaurants around the city and inside SBMA that's why he has decided to bring us to a Korean restaurant for an afternoon snack. The hot Ramen soup tastes heavenly and hubby enjoyed his bottle of Korean Beer while me, my daughter Mika and Edmar had a taste of their flavorful ice cream on stick which really tastes great and cheap too.

We had a short walk afterwards before we headed to Bread Time for our coffee break.  We can't do much as Mika still have to attend her afternoon classes in school. 

yumm!!!

We've ordered some cakes and pastries as well as glasses of iced and hot coffee.  I really love that blue berry cheese cake....perfect for a cup of hot cappuccino.

Edmar and hubby had their share of iced coffee latte while Mika just had a slice of cake and iced water. She doesn't drink coffee and that makes her unique. Me and my son are both coffee lovers and  every single day will not be complete without a cup or two of our favorite coffee mixes. 

The day ended well. Hubby was so pleased with our "little surprise". We all went home happy and that smile in hubby's face was so precious.

Emergency Light

Whether through online or going directly to the mall, shopping for my home needs has always been a great experience for me.  I love my home to be looking neat and clean all the time so I always make it a point that I have everything that would make me feel at ease and comfortable in my home sweet home.  Since it's already rainy season now in the Philippines, power outage is just a common thing especially when there's a typhoon so I am actually scouting for a durable and reliable emergency light for our home use.  I've been to several shops already but I can't find exactly what I like and what I need.  Don't get me wrong, I am not looking for something like a chauvet impulse 648 led strobe (lol).  I just prefer something that's bright enough to illuminate the entire house.  I've seen some good brands like OMNI and Firefly and I am thinking of getting one from either of the two brands.  It would also be nice if I could have something that's equipped with a radio so we could still listen to news during emergency situations.  Well, I'm glad that we're not really affected much by the recent typhoon but I guess there's a lot more to come so I still need to prioritize what's really essential for the home during times like this.

If I would not be able to find the one I like from the local shops here in my place, maybe I could purchase online.  I'm sure there's a lot that I could choose from.

My Love For Bags

I used to sell ladies bags from Krizza's Collection line of ladies apparel and bags but I stopped for a while since I am having difficulty with importation taxes.  I just don't understand how they compute the importation fees at customs.  The shipping fee plus the importation taxes are driving me nuts.  After deducting these two huge expenses, I am left with just a little profit.

Anyway, the best thing that I am getting from this small business of mine is that I am able to collect ladies bags as part of my profit.  At least, I don't have to buy bags from my own pocket.  That indeed is a relief. Not only that, I am also able to give few pieces to my daughter.  She's choosing the ones that could be used in school as she is now in college.

That's pretty awesome isn't it?
