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

Japan’s Anello Bags – Now in Manila!

Everyone knows how much I love the land of the rising sun. In fact, I went back twice to Tokyo in a span of three months earlier this year just for the sights and wonderful food it has to offer. The best thing I love about Japan would be its convenient railway so it’s easy for lone travelers like me to get around. Thing is, it’s not as cheap as other Asian countries so I try to make the most out of every ride by buying all the things I want at every stop. That means lugging around big shoppingRead 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

HUSH PUPPIES: The Body Shoe | Auto Options

Let me share a fun fact about myself that I’ve never disclosed on my blog before. I may be little miss makeup girl but I’ve been exposed to the automotive industry at a very young age. So it’s quite ironic that I decided to go on a very different path – the opposite one, actually. I tried my hand at makeup, styling and now I’m currently working with PR and marketing but none of the brands I’ve worked with are related to cars. Until last week, I got the chance to work on the grand opening of Auto Options, yourRead more

Hello from sunny Boracay! That’s right, it’s only been a month since LaBoracay but I’m back in the island. In fact, this is my third trip in a span of 30 days! Lol. Right now, there’s not a lot of people and I honestly miss the big crowds and parties so I’m reminiscing my #GlobeBoracay trip. Here are some things that I don’t miss about LaBoracay: (please read with a sarcastic tone) Packing a ton of cosmetics & swimsuits I am the complete opposite of a light packer. Heck, I would pack my dog with me if I could. ForRead more

Cream Silk: Your Summer Hair Expert

What do Rhea and I love about summer? Everything! Well, all except how much the sun damages our hair, of course! We attended the Cream Silk event a few weeks ago to learn more about hair care from world traveler Kim Jones and hairstylist to the stars, Suyen Salazar. We were called out to share what exactly we love most about summer and mine is having the extra time, like holy week, to travel around the world. Last month, I flew to Tokyo for a week and upon reaching Manila, I went home for about 8 hours, packed my bagsRead more
