My 10-Step LANEIGE Skin Care

          It’s crazy, but this all started because of the Korean drama series Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. I came to love the character and the actress so much (Lee Sung Kyung), and so when I saw that she was an official endorser of Laneige, I became interested in trying the famous Korean skin care brand. I knew it was a bit steep, but at that time I was earning okay, and I thought that it was pricey for a reason. I heard nothing but good things about Laneige especially coming from Rowena of the famous blog Animetric, who has been a long time Laneige user. She has excellent skin so I thought, it must really be effective!

          So there, I started with the 2 products that I saw on Weightlifting Fairy (see my post here), and then afterwards, each time I pass by a Laneige store, I felt like a kid in a candy store already.

        In this post, I will show you the first Laneige set I collected so I could follow the 10-step Korean skin care regimen.

The Little Nebulizer That Could! The Omron CompAir Nebulizer System NE-C801!

        I remember there was a time when my little Rainbow was down with a cough, and for some reason it took a while before it really went away. And so my sister in law told me that it would be wise to invest in a nebulizer because it’s a good way to relieve little kids from annoying colds and coughs (of course with the doctor’s consent). I cannot also just ignore the fact that that both sides of our families have history of asthma. Luckily though Richie and I both had never had asthma, and even more luckily, so does Rain. (Knock on wood so as not to jinx it).

        So of course, that was months ago. And up until now I haven’t bought any nebulizer yet for the house. (Best mom award! Hahaha!) But because I was recently introduced to Omron, I now know which nebulizer to get! It’s small, it’s compact, and it only produces a soft wheezing type of sound that’s almost soothing (to me at least).

Omron Nebulizer NE-C801

        The CompAir Nebulizer System NE - C801 is this tiny nebulizer made by Omron Healthcare. They developed this product to make it easier to manage not just asthma, but also for chronic bronchitis, allergic rhinitis, and other respiratory disorders.

Marian Rivera-Dantes is the Perfect Endorser for Snow Crystal White Tomato

        I've always admired Marian Rivera-Dantes' beauty. She's got that delicate beauty and petite body that makes her the ideal beauty goal of many. And I know we can all agree that her career as an actress did not come about just because of her looks. She is really a talented versatile actress that can easily do drama to action to comedy in a snap.  From acting , to hosting, and now to being a wife and a mother, she has become one of the Philippines' most admired actress.

        But aside for her remarkable beauty and talent, more importantly, is her undeniable confidence that makes her even more exquisite. And this is precisely why Vida Nutriscience believed that Marian Rivera-Dantes would be the perfect endorser for Snow's new product: Snow Crystal White Tomato. It's the new gold standard in whitening and anti-aging.

Destination: ISDAAN Floating Restaurant!!!

Isdaan Floating Restaurant

        We've been traveling to the north every summer ever since I could remember. My family's province is in Bangued, Abra, then we later transfered to San Fernando La Union. And before all the EXes were built (SCTEX, TPLEX), I remember always passing by this restaurant in Tarlac with huge statues out front and have always wanted to try it. But we always used to ride the public bus so we couldn't really stop over. But as soon as we were already using our own car, we did finally get to go and I remember being in awe at how fun the whole place was. Filled with lagoons and huge amazing statues. it kinda made you feel like you were in a theme park!

        Years later, we came back. This time, in their Nueva Ecija branch. And it was as fun as I remembered. In fact it was even more fun this time because Rain is already with us! Check out my quick video of our fun trip to Isdaan!

Via Venetto: The Perfect Shoe in Every Hue

        Have you ever experienced that time when you suddenly have to go somewhere and discover that you're a bit underdressed? I'm sure you have. Which is precisely why every woman wants to have that one perfect pair of shoes that she can use in all occasions. And it's pretty hard to find that one perfect pair.

        Thankfully I saw this ballet flats, ankle-strapped stilettos from Via Venetto and I honestly want to get!

The black one is perfect because the color goes with everything...

Where Does our Used Water Go?

You wake-up in the morning, you do number 1, maybe even number 2. You flush, take a shower, brush your teeth, and thank God that your household has access to clean water.

But what we don’t normally think about is where all that used water goes.

We use up all this clean water in our everyday lives to clean ourselves and our households, but we don’t stop to think how much wastewater we create in a day.

A few days ago when I became aware of this thought, I honestly felt a sense of panic. It’s like realizing that you misunderstood the essay question when you’ve already passed your paper to your professor.

So where does all this wastewater go? Are we just constantly dumping all the dirty water back to Mother Earth? Eeewww… Are we already swimming in our own filth?

Maynilad Water Treatment Center

Thankfully Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) helped ease my slight panic by taking us for a tour of their Wastewater Management Plant in Paco, Manila. Aha! There is hope for the motherland!
