HSBC Gold Visa Cash Back Credit Card

HSBC invited us for a lavish intimate lunch at the very exclusive Manila House last week to talk about the HSBC Gold Visa Cash Back Credit Card and how a shopaholic and frequent traveler like me can make the most out of it. There’s nothing better than getting rewarded for your own purchases! “Every year we think of a product that would address the evolving needs of our consumers,” says Kris Werner, HSBC Philippines Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management. “It’s no surprise they love to dine, shop and travel. At HSBC, we found a way that would cater toRead more

Restaurant Review: Kushikatsu Daruma from Osaka

If there’s one country that I could get an unlimited flight pass to, that would be Japan. It’s not just because of the cheap but high quality Japanese cosmetics, giant wastelands like Daiso or Don Quixote, the kind people and the culture, but I keep on going back because of the yummy food! I don’t research on restaurants before going because most of the places I’ve walked in to have pleasantly surprised me with a wonderful meal but there are also a few restos that I like to tick off before leaving a city.  The problem is, like any popularRead more

Palmolive Naturals White + Milk Body Wash & Soap

Have you tried Palmolive Naturals White + Milk Body Wash and Soap? Any Palmolive product scent brings back so many good memories because I was a marketing intern in Colgate-Palmolive before graduating from college.

The White + Milk formula is infused with 100% natural milk protein, hence it’s name. At first, I thought the scent would be milky but to my pleasant surprise, it smells powder fresh – aRead more

Roy & Biv: An Obsessive Compulsive Wasteland

I’m easily compelled to enter stores with pretty or colorful displays. Roy & Biv is an extra-ordinary one because this obsessive compulsive wasteland displays their products based on color. That’s right, you won’t find all the mugs in one section or all the notebooks stacked on one rack – they’re everywhere! There’s no specific explanation as to what this shop can offer because I’ve spotted the oddest combination of products inside. They’re got never before seen items, clothing, school supplies, pillows, accessories, display items, furniture and even pet beds! * * * This place is an explosion of color withRead more

Are you tired of hiding under a big floppy hat during summer, especially at the beach? Afraid of the sun or conscious about your bare skin? Then Cathy Doll’s Whitening Sunscreen is the product that you’ve been waiting for. I’ve heard of Cathy Doll long before it hit our local counters because I frequently fly to Bangkok. They’re available in all Karmart stores – it’s hard to miss because it’s a super cute store shaped like a mini-pink truck! They’re known for their instant whitening products, most especially their face packs and lotions. Cathy Doll Whitening Sunscreen has SPF50 PA+++Read more
