The Louvre, Paris, Guggenheim in Las Vegas - These two are the top destinations abroad when it comes to museums. In the Philippines, the most popular to date are the Ayala and Yuchengco museums, located near shopping malls and hotel complexes. As an art aficionado, a recent visit to the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar made me more interested in our culture and heritage. But here in Manila, you don't have to look further just to experience art and culture because government owned National Museum can teach you a lot about our history.

What I love about being a blogger is trying out new things. So when I got an invite to try out Korea's Smoper Chicken, I was too happy to oblige and see this for myself. Dubbed as Korea's "Jollibee", with over 800 branches in their country, Smoper Chicken has finally landed in the Philippines and has more to offer.

Oh no, I should have known, "FRIENDZONED", bakit 'di ka crush ng crush mo? - Zia Quizon's song repeats over and over my head as I remember my childhood crush. I was an ugly duckling. I don't find myself cute, I had bangs until second year high school and I tried asking this dreamboat to answer my slambook. That is why this July 31, I would definitely line-up in the nearest cinema to watch the first big-screen team-up of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim, adapted from Ramon Bautista's best selling book, "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo".

|The Cadbury Dairy Milk Creamy Chocolate Fountain|
No matter how sad you are, chocolates are the best way to ease your sorrow and put a smile on your face. But hey, chocolates are meant to be eaten in whatever emotion you’re in, especially my favourite Cadbury Dairy Milk. I could never get enough of its smoothness and creaminess, but what if you can get a fountain-ful of it? Do you think you could still resist having one?
What is your dream home? Mine would be simple yet conventional. It would seem complete and modern. And for those who know me too well, my dream home must have a rocking entertainment system to watch my favourite movies with. Each of us has our dream home personified. And last July 1, Samsung, together with the SM Appliance Center helps you complete your perfect home with their latest innovation that will make your house “the place to be”.

I am a choco-holic. There. I finally said it.
I couldn't resist these goodies no matter how hard I try.
Everytime my Dad goes home from abroad, my family would always go to Duty Free to buy "pasalubong" for Dad's friends and relatives. And I couldn't remember a time where we don't get our favorite Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolates. Believe me, my Mom always hoards them, especially the bite-sized ones.

Giving Corporate Gifts are every company's priority during half of the year. I must know that because I've worked at Marketing for quite some years now. And seeing my officemates who handle merchandise are always on a lookout for premium items that would entice customers and prospective clients. And this July 3-5, 2013, the country's leading business gifts expo brings us specialized groups of exhibitors in one roof at the SMX Convention Center, in their 26th year in the industry.
