Mom, Thank You and I’m Sorry #TimeForMom #PersonalPost

When I used to be part of the corporate world and I had my own landline, my phone starts to ring by 9am. The calls never end – 11am, 12nn, 3pm, and so on… until I leave the office. And guess what? 10% of the time, it is work-related and the 90% is my mom asking random stuff or telling stories. Fast forward to today, 5 missed calls, 10 text messages – These notifications are what I usually see by the end of my day. And guess what?! They are all from one person – my mom. My friends know how ‘intense’ she could be. Her usual calls or messages are “Where are you?”, “What are you doing?”, “Who are you with?”, “What time did you go home?”, “Why are you not answering?”, and the questions just never end. I admit, I would always describe her as “makulit” until I saw this video… Some of you might have seen this or some might think it’s just an ad, but it hit me so so hard! Basically, my life everyday is like the girl on the video – or more of, EXACTLY like her. (Mom, are you the scriptwriter of this???) My usual day: leave my pad in the morning, work, go from one place to another, attend meetings, and let’s not forget the stressful traffic I go through every...

Thule Subterra Collection Can Make Packing Easy!

Probably my dreaded part when traveling is packing (and unpacking). Although I can say I’ve mastered the art of packing light, it’s still not something I love to do. The only consolation I get is that I could carry a nice bag. This is probably why I’m quite picky when it comes to my travel bags. I always see Thule in malls or even when browsing the internet, but to be honest, I never got the chance to explore it. Thankfully, I was recently introduced to the brand and the newest Thule Subterra Collection. Looks a little plain or too masculine for your taste? I had the same impression at first, BUT wait for it… wait for it… Things changed when Mr. Paulino Servado III, Thule’s Head of Marketing Communications, showed how each of these bags works. The Thule Subterra collection offers luggage and backpacks, catering to different needs or adventures. Thule Subterra Travel Backpack 34L Techies and young working professionals don’t have to worry about their prized gadgets and devices as they can snugly pack their valuables in the travel backpack.

Keeping Things Organized with Brother At Your Side

I’ve always wished I could arrange my room, my things that easily. I decided to buy a number of containers to organize my makeup by use – one box for eye brows, another for cheeks, another for face base, etc. Yup, my makeup collection grew unexpectedly. And as a beauty enthusiast, I’m extremely happy, but it could be a little overwhelming too when not organized properly. I thought my cute boxes could solve my problem, but I still end up removing all the boxes in my cabinet whenever I look for a particular product. And when I’m in a hurry while doing my makeup, it doesn’t really help. I get really frustrated! I want my containers to look neat, which is why I refrain from putting on those labels. Well, more of – I don’t have the time to print and cut. I want something more instant, if you know what I mean. Thankfully, I recently discovered this super helpful gadget for the O.C. like me – Brother PT-D600 Labelling Machine! Yup, it comes in Hello Kitty – plus points to that! If you’re not a fan, don’t worry since it comes in plain colors too. Brother PT-D600 Labelling Machine The P-touch D600 creates durable fade-proof labels by using the easy-to-use integrated labelling functions, or directly from your PC or Mac thanks to the fully-featured P-touch Editor label design...
