Maybelline New York Inspires Us to Explore the World and #MakeConfidenceHappen

Confidence is Key. This is what most people say when faced with personal challenges that test their self-esteem. Not everyone is blessed with confidence, and while some women are born a natural, most struggle with it every single day. From waking up every morning, to achieving daily work goals, confidence is key to bring out your best and succeed in whatever goals you have in life.

In my case, I was never the girl who exuded extreme confidence. As a child, I often play alone and stay in one corner, while others play together. I was shy to talk with other kids unless someone approaches me and invites me to play with them. Maybe because I was just naturally born shy, or because I didn't have much self-confidence with my social abilities.

Lucky Rainbow Seafood Restaurant- 40% Off Dimsum Promo in Z Square, Banawe

We have a new favorite dimsum place in Banawe!! Now, we don't have to wait until 9pm for Causeway's or King Chef's dimsum promo. Lucky Rainbow Seafood Restaurant in Z Square Mall offers 40% off on their dimsum selections as early as 6:00pm! 

We learned about Lucky Rainbow's dimsum promo while waiting for our number to be called at Causeway. Those who frequent the place know how crazy the waiting list at Causeway is during promo time (9pm onwards). Since we were number 15 in line, we decided to walk around Z Square Mall to pass the time. There, we saw Lucky Rainbow at the second floor and chanced upon their dimsum promo. Their promo ends 10:30pm, and since it was already late, we promised to go back earlier next time.

Places to Visit in Davao- Eden Nature Park and Resort Day Tour Package and Lunch

I've always wanted to visit Davao and explore "one of the safest cities in the world". Fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel for the first time to Davao for the US Potato Safari event last year.  I got to dine in some of the best places and restaurants like Claude's Le Cafe De Ville, Vinta Bar and Cafe Uno of Waterfront Insular Hotel, and Polo Bistro of Marco Polo, but I was not able to go around the city due to our tight schedule. 

Three months after, the family decided to spend the Holy Week in Davao. Planning our visit was easy and hassle-free, especially now, that there are quite a number of hotels in Davao with affordable rates per night. While preparing our itinerary, I made sure I included a visit to Eden Nature Park and Resort.

Eden Nature Park is one of the most famous attractions in Davao. It is an 80-hectare land filled with pine trees and other botanical plants.

Tickles Flagship Store Welcomes You to Your Happy Place in SM Megamall

Come One, Come All! The all-time favorite toy store and gift shop Tickles, recently opened its flagship store in SM Megamall. The store re-branded from the funky yellow and black theme, to a carnival-inspired look with fun and playful colors of red and yellow. I personally like the new look which draws more attraction to both the kids and kids at heart.

I dropped by Tickles flagship store in SM Megamall last week to check out some cool finds and quirky gifts perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

Organique Acai Berry Premium Blend- Keep it Simple, Drink Healthy Purple!

Organique Acai Premium Blend is the flagship product of Organique California- a concept started by husband and wife tandem, Elton and Cathy Salimbangon. Acai, the king of berries, and a superfood high in antioxidants, is believed to have a lot of health benefits, hence the couple decided to have acai berry as their premier product. 

I was thankful to receive a bottle of Organique Acai Premium Blend last month, mainly because my mom was planning on buying one for my dad. He underwent angioplasty late last year and has been cautious with his food intake ever since. Being someone who loves to eat anything and everything, the drastic change in diet was a struggle for him especially during the first 6 months.

Organique Acai is perfect for him as it helps in reducing bad cholesterol and prevents causes of heart disease. It is considered to be the most potent Açaí Juice Concentrate with over 12,000mg of Acai per 30ml serving. You just have to take a 30ml dose daily before breakfast.

Each bottle of Organíque™ Açaí Premium Blend is 946mL (P2500) in size good for 30 servings.

Accenture Kicks Off Languages Talent Community in Fusion Night- Hole In The Wall

你好! Bonjour! Ola! Ciao! Kon'nichiwa! Annyeonghaseyo! These are just some ways to say Hello in different languages. Have you ever had that thought of learning a new language especially when traveling in different countries? Did you ever wished you can talk to a local and be able to understand or communicate to him/her without using sign languages? I bet we all did at one point, to communicate easier with foreigners and express clearly what we wanted to say.

While I consider myself a multilingual ( being able to speak English, Chinese and Filipino), I still want to learn a new language for extra knowledge and skill such as Spanish, Korean, French or Japanese. Good thing Accenture recently kicked off their Languages Talent Community through Fusion Night- a gathering of multilingual professionals who want to either learn a new language, or share their skills and talents to like-minded individuals.

9 Huawei P9 Food Shots That Make You Want To Travel and Try Different Cuisines

I’ve been team IOS ever since I had my first smartphone, due to its simple and user friendly interface. But, I must admit, I do get jealous when my friends take out their android phones, with design and interface customized to their personality and style. Plus, they get more access to free mobile applications. My mobile phone is basically for personal messaging, calls, group chats and social media postings, but photos and videos eat a huge chunk of my storage capacity.

Being a food blogger, my album is generally filled with food shots of our daily food trips and adventures. I have always wanted to get another mobile phone for social media postings since my current mobile phone is already low in storage. But I want to make sure that my new phone will have a really nice camera that can take beautiful and high quality food shots.

Fortunately, I got my hands on the new Huawei P9 Smartphone equipped with Leica dual-lens camera. This is every food blogger’s dream- to have a camera that can capture food photos, minus the bulkiness of SLRs and digital cameras. 

I took my new Huawei P9 to the test and used it to take food shots of our daily food adventures last week.

Here, I’ll be sharing 9 Huawei P9 food shots that will make you want to travel and explore different cuisines from around the world.
