Sunnies By Charlie: The Newest Trendy Eyewear in Town

For a tropical country such as ours, it is a necessity to protect our eyes with our choice of sunnies or eyewear. And of course, we would want to look best with our shades on as we brave the sun while pursuing our daily activities. 


Fancy A Facial? Let My Skin Essentials Facial and Skin Care Center Pamper You!

The word spa and massage are like magic words that perk up my face. For a busy woman like most of us, I always look forward to having a facial or massage together with my friends as a breather from mommy and work duties.

Everyone would sure agree with me that nothing beats the feeling of being pampered, just relaxing on soft and crisp white sheets of a spa bed, and forgetting all the cares in the world for at least a couple of hours.

So how would think I felt when I was given a complimentary facial courtesy of My Skin Facial and Skin Care Center? Heaven. And it wasn't just an ordinary facial that you experience in other spa centers. This one is called, Diamond Microdermabrasion Premium. Aside from diamond Microdermabrasion and facial, this package includes Collagen mask with Collagen infusion using Galvanic facial machine administered by their well-trained staff. A galvanic facial makes use of subtle electric currents of positive and negative ions to give you a refreshing experience while stimulates and rejuvenates the skin.

For me, a good facial such as this renews your energy to face another working day, making you even more productive. Come to think of it, if we feel good about ourselves, we can share more positivity to others. I definitely was happy to have this premium service from My Skin!

Hygiene Kits Campaign for Yolanda Victims

We have seen the wrath of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). The devastation it caused has affected not only a few cities and houses in the Philippines but the majority of the Visayas region where the death counts has now reached thousands and number of families affected now millions.

A conscious effort is now spearheaded by the Davao Bloggers Society and Filipino Bloggers Forum to join the relief operations by raising a total of P100,000.00 to finance and produce 1,000 hygiene packs for the victims. Each kit which amounts to PHP100 or USD2.50 will contain toiletries and other essential goods for a week's use of one person. Hygiene kits were chosen to be donated as this is something that is not yet prioritized by many donors.

I Ate Like A Viking at Vikings!

Vikings: The largest luxury buffet restaurant in the country today is now open in Davao

New restaurants have been opening in Davao in the recent months, but I have never encountered such hype and excitement for a new buffet restaurant such as Vikings' even weeks before it actually opened its doors last September. Luckily, I was given a complimentary dinner for four which allowed me to bring my family last week. All the questions in my head were answered as I came in by their entrance door. 

Firstly, I have to say that the modern Filipino interior design of the restaurant was simply elegant. With a quick glance of the food all over the place, you'd literally be floored just by looking at their wide selection of their dishes, beverages and desserts.  It was like a huge buffet treat being prepared for all Davaoeno foodies.

Located inside the SM Lanang Premier, just fronting the Fountain Court, they have a large capacity to accommodate 500 guests at a time. Being the first branch outside Metro Manila, this says a lot about Davao as a growing hub for business and tourism.

Introducing: The Go Nuts Cro-nuts

These sugary (good news! they are not overly sweet) cronuts go best with Go Nuts' Vietnamese coffee 
I've been hearing a lot about cronuts in the past few weeks, and I see people are going gaga over this latest pastry craze. I am quite intrigued and was wondering how it is different with the conventional donuts. Good thing I was able to sample Go Nuts version of the cronuts during a food tasting last week.

Cronut first became popular in New York early this year and is described as a sugary heaven giving you the goodness of both worlds, hence the description, "half donut, half croissant". It is baked from laminated dough as a croissant with decadent cream filling, fried to perfection as a donut then topped with fruit toppings. Viola! We now have the cronut!
