Air Asia in Korea: My First Trip To Seoul!


Oh boy... Where do I even begin?

        Okay so a few years back, I got fond of watching a few Asian drama series. Starting with Taiwan's Meteor Garden (Jerry Yan is my boyfriend but he's not aware so don't tell him). And then moved on to South Korea's Princess Hours, Full House, and Coffee Prince. Which I all loved! After that, the next ones I watched did not really keep me interested enough to look for more dramas.

Until Goblin happened.

        After that, something inside me snapped. All of a sudden I got so interested not just in K-dramas but South Korea as a whole. This is when I started trying Korean skincare. And after discovering that Korean skincare worked well with my skin, the more I fell in love with Korea. Shallow? Maybe. But not when you finally found products that improve your skin! Skincare is life!

        And after trying their skin care, I also suddenly had the urge to learn Korean, and also learn how to read and write Hangul. I'm sure all K Drama addicts had the same urge to learn the language as me. I signed up for online Korean language modules and also watched YouTube videos.

        After Goblin, I also fell in love with Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. These are my 3 top favorites! So when the leading actors for Weightlifting Fairy and Strong Woman held their fan meet here in the Philippines, I grabbed the opportunity to see them in person <3 (And even got to high top with one of them <3 )

        All in all, I just started getting obsessed with Korean stuff. From food to skin care to dramas to music (specifically Drama soundtracks). But did I ever consider flying to South Korea?

My answer is a resounding HELL YES!

        And this is what this post is all about! My first trip to Seoul! I didn't think I would get to go soon so I was so ecstatic when my husband told me that it was finally pushing through!

Danes Cheese Ball Now Part Of Our Holiday Tradition!

Danes Cheese Ball

        Every family has their own traditions every Christmas. My little family and I spend December 24 dinner with my side of the family, we have someone dress up as santa and give presents to the kids, then by 9pm we head over to my in law's house for more gift exchanging and more surprises from Santa!

        But when it comes to food, we do have our own traditions too! My mother in law always prepares steak and my sister in law always prepares these awesome baked potatoes! But since I don't cook hence have never hosted a Christmas Party before, my little family and I don't really have our own holiday food tradition... until now!

My Omron CompAir Nebulizer Hands-On Experience

Omron CompAir Nebulizer

        If you follow my blog, you most likely have seen my post when I first heard of Omron CompAir Nebulizer here. And now I finally have my own! Yay! I've had it for a while but then, fortunately, no one really got sick that had the need to nebulize, until now. I'm down with a bad cold. I guess it's cough-and-cold season again here in the Philippines.

        Mixed emotion as I was unboxing my Omron CompAir. Excited to use it, but at the same time, I felt nervous because I've never ever used one before. It looked easy to set up during the demo... I wonder if I can set it up by myself this time?

Here it goes!

Calm Down! LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line is Here!


LANEIGE Fresh Calming set


        I'm happy to say that I think I finally found the ONE. Well, the FOUR, actually. Meet my daytime warriors! The LANEIGE Fresh Calming Set! And it's already available in LANEIGE stores in the Philippines!

        Aside from the fact that I wanted to buy this set because of the Lee Sung Kyung Fan Girl in me (She's the endorser for this line), I was particularly interested to try this because this line was made for oily to combination skin. Which is exactly my skin type. I've always thought I had oily skin until I realized that only my T-zone was oily. My cheeks are always dry. Forget the fact that the original market for this line is for 20-year-olds. Feeling bata ako bakit ba? And hell, it works perfectly for me! Seriously! 찐자!!!

Dove and Mommy Mundo's #ConfidentGirl Forum is an Eye-Opener!



        Parenting is hard. Obviously. You think parenting will become easier as they grow up because we don't have to assist them in small tasks like breastfeeding, or giving them milk in the wee hours, taking a shower, brushing their teeth, feeding them, etc. But the challenges become different. As I can imagine, it becomes emotionally harder. Because then we have to make sure our child grows up in a positive environment and we want to make sure that they'll be okay on their own when we're not with them.

        A big factor in growing up with confidence is having good self-esteem. Now inside your household, there's no problem. Because we're always there to guide them. But it's a different story when they leave the house as they become exposed to other people's way of thinking. That's why as early as now, it's best to have that "talk" with them and prepare them for the world. This is precisely why I'm glad I was able to join the first #ConfidentGirl Forum with Dove and Mommy Mundo.

For All Fa-SHOE-nistas!

Via Venetto

        A true fashionista is not one who just follows each and every trend. A real fashionista is one who wears a piece with full confidence. One who makes the dress or the accessory or the shoe work for you, and not the other way around. A real fashionista can wear anything from runway looks, or something from her grandmother's baul.  As long as you can work it, it's fashion!

        Filipina fashionistas have a lot of choices when it comes to clothes and accessories. You can find tons of amazing clothing, shoes, and accessories at the many amazing malls we have now, or at tiangge areas, or even at weekend markets. You'll be surprised at the variety of choices you will see.

        Needless to say, completing a fashionista look is a head-to-toe endeavor, with signature shoes as a style staple.That is where Filipino fashion icon Via Venetto truly shines.
