The World We Want

The best thing about being a blogger is having the ability to convey your ideas to as much people as possible especially with regards to worthy causes. You are able to contribute in your own small way just by writing about it on your blog. Having said that, I'm very happy to be a part of The World We Want Philippines Project's Blogger Initiative.

A project of the United Nations, The World We Want or My World is a global survey for citizens. Its objective is to determine the six most urgent issues that the world is facing. They are conducting a poll where people are taken to a page where they can enumerate or choose six items that they think are of utmost importance in their lives. World leaders are then informed of the results and from there they can formulate solutions to end poverty.

I already voted and the issues I chose are better healthcare, access to clean water and sanitation, freedom from discrimination and persecution, protection against crime and violence, reliable energy at home, affordable and nutritious food. 

I'm urging everyone to join this campaign and vote. Let your voices be heard and vote here: http://www.myworld2015.org/index.html.

Furthermore, please visit and like World We Want Philippines' Facebook page and follow @WorldWeWantPH  on Twitter.

Anthony Bourdain Loves Jollibee

Anthony Bourdain, the famous host of Travel Channel's No Reservations has tried Filipino food once again. I saw a Youtube video yesterday of his new CNN show Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown where he along with Korean chef Roy Choi went to a Jollibee drive thru in Koreatown, Los Angeles, California and ordered Halo-Halo, Spam Sandwich, and Aloha Burger. He loved all the food especially the Halo-Halo which he said is "oddly beautiful" (wish we also have Halo-Halo from Jollibee here). He even took a picture of it:

Sharing with you the video:

Firmoo's Crazy Giveaway

I've been wearing glasses for the longest time. I sometimes wear contact lens but most of the time I use eyeglasses. That's why it's so important for me to have a pair that's completely comfortable to wear. Not only that, my glasses should be perfectly suited to the shape of my face and should be stylish, since I'm quite the fashionista. I wouldn't want to look old and drab just because I'm wearing eyeglasses. That's why I love Firmoo so much because the eyeglasses I have from them looks so good on me and is trendy. Plus, they're totally durable. The same thing goes with their sunglasses which come in many chic designs that every modern woman would be proud to wear.

Then now's the time to own a stylish and updated pair of prescription glasses because Firmoo is giving away 100 FREE pairs worldwide plus discount coupons (free glasses include a frame, 1.50 single vision lenses and shipping). There's no need to fret about not having enough money to buy new eyeglasses.

Another offer that will keep people excited about Firmoo is their 20% off on frames and total shipping fee. Customers will get to save a lot of money. But they have to hurry since this is for a limited time offer.

7-11 7-Election Every Gulp Counts Campaign

The great thing about being in a democratic country is that we are able to participate in naming our political representatives. Having the right to vote empowers us and brings about changes that can forever alter the face of politics in our country. Come May 13, 2013, we are once again given that opportunity when we vote for 12 senatorial candidates. 

In line with this, 7-11 has come up with a fun way of voting for your chosen candidates in the coming elections via their 7-Election Gulp Campaign. A cup has a corresponding barcode which in turn is equivalent to one vote. Each cup bought will represent a specific party (Team PNOY, Team UNA, and Independent Candidates/Kapatiran/Makabayan/Social Justice Society/Democratic/Bangon Pilipinas). The voting is from March 20 to May 6, 2013 at all 7-Eleven stores. The steps are very easy. Just choose a cup then get your drink. After that, a store clerk will ask which party you want to vote for and scan the barcode.
Results will be updated weekly at 7-11 stores but you can also checkout http://www.7-election.com.ph/ for updates as well as 7-11's Facebook and Twitter accounts. Stay tuned for the final results on May 7, 2013.

Pond's Age Miracle Day Cream Samples

I was pleasantly surprised to receive 5 sachets of Pond's Age Miracle Day Cream yesterday. I almost forgot about this Facebook promo that I joined in two months ago. It's the Love Yourself promo of Pond's for the month of February. Since I'm into anti-aging creams because of my age ( I'm in my 30's), I can definitely use these samples. Pond's is also one of my most trusted brands having used their Gold Radiance line. The Pond's Age Miracle line includes Cell ReGEN Facial Foam, Intensive Cell ReGEN Serum, Cell ReGEN Dual Action Eye Cream, Cell ReGEN Day Cream, BB+ Cream SPA 30++ PA, and Cell ReGEN Deep Action Night Cream.

They actually have a promo exclusively at Watsons wherein you can win a designer bag when you buy Pond's Age Miracle or Gold Radiance worth P500 (1 raffle ticket) and P1,000 (3 raffle tickets).

Kamiseta Online Shop

P 999.00
I hate it when I'm not busy. That is because I get to browse the net for online shops and when I do, I eventually spend money to buy stuff that I don't really need. Anyhow, I've known about Kamiseta's online store for quite some time now but haven't bought anything there. They have tops that are nice for summer and sold at really affordable prices. Shoppers can choose from a variety of items like blouses, tees, dresses, jackets, knits, jumpsuits, bottoms, undies, perfumes, and accessories. They come in different stylish designs and colors. I'm leaning towards buying the tops pictured here.

Packages are shipped via LBC and Air21 for local shipping and DHL, Fedex, and UPS for international shipping. Kamiseta offers free delivery nationwide for every P1,000 purchase. Payment methods include credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, BDO), Paypal, bank deposit (BPI and BDO), and debit card (Bancnet).

Binibining Pilipinas 2013 Winners

I like watching beauty pageants so I just had to watch the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 coronation last night even if it ended around 1:00 am. This year's celebration is made all the more important because Binibining Pilipinas celebrates 50 years of beauty this year. Past winners paraded in the opening of the show with 1969 Ms. Universe winner Gloria Diaz appearing the last. Held at the Araneta Coliseum, the event was full of beauty and glamour. I must say that all the 50 contestants were beautiful.

The Q & A proved to be quite a revelation though. Since all the semi-finalists were stunning, you'd be able to pick out the eventual winner (Ms. Universe) through this portion. I was so disappointed with the answers of most of the ladies especially because the questions asked were good and relevant. Most of them just didn't answer sensibly. Ariella Arida, who was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Universe, had the best answer in my opinion. It's supposed to be beauty and brains but unfortunately most of these women only had beauty. One even answered in Tagalog which is just fine with me. But the problem was I thought she'd be able to answer the question nicely since she's already speaking in Tagalog but then again her answer was cringe worthy. Anyhow, I hope next time they'll screen the contestants more carefully. It's really a big turn off when you listen to these women speak. 

Having said that, I like the Ms. Universe winner (Ariella Arida). She's actually the only one I like. Here are the other winners:
  • Bb 20 Bea Rose Santiago - Bb Pilipinas-International
  • Bb 39 Mutya Johanna Datul - Bb Pilipinas-Supranational
  • Bb 16 Joanna Cindy Miranda - Bb Pilipinas-Tourism
  • Bb 15 Pia Wurtzbach - First runner up

Thinking of Having a Giveaway

It's been a while since I had my last giveaway and I'm thinking of running one again with just a few steps for the joiners to accomplish. I'm a contest junkie myself and I hate giveaways which take so long to finish. I think I'm gonna use a rafflecopter this time for participants to have an easier time. But I have to do some research first since I don't know how to use it. I'm also thinking of the products I'll be giving away since I don't have any sponsors and everything will come from my pocket. I'm quite excited about this and I hope a lot of people will join. If you guys have suggestions on the kind of prizes you'd like to win, please do post it here. Thank you lovelies!

Forever 21 Top

After Sunday mass, my family and I went to SM MOA to have lunch and buy a scooter for my nephew. I didn't really have any plans of buying something for myself but I just couldn't resist going inside Forever 21. They have so many amazing clothes and accessories that I felt like a confused kid in a candy store. I didn't know where to look and there were so many pieces that I wanted to buy. I'm a jewelry freak and their wide selection of bracelets, necklaces, and earrings just took my breath away. Since I was on a budget, I didn't want to go overboard in spending but I knew that I couldn't leave empty handed so I carefully chose the top I was going to buy (I decided to buy bracelets some other time). Since I needed something ultra casual for my trips to the mall, I bought this loose, cotton, white top with lace details on each side. It was on sale for P665. I'm definitely coming back and buy more stuff.

Rooftop Prince Fan

There was a time when I was addicted to watching koreanovelas. I would sleep at 2 am just so I can finish episodes and go on with my next one, even if I had to wake up at 5:30 to get ready for work. But I grew tired of them and instead watched US TV series. That was until two weeks ago when my sister bought a DVD of the hit koreanovela Rooftop Prince. We opted to stay at home during the Holy Week so we were able to finish the series right away.

Rooftop Prince is about a Joseon crown prince who, after his wife dies mysteriously, time travels to the future where he encounters familiar faces, modern-day devices, and corporate intrigue. I won't go into details anymore since there may be others who would like to watch it. Suffice it to say that this is one of the best koreanovelas I have seen. It is both funny and heart-warming and the sweet chemistry of the two main characters Prince Lee Gak / Yong Tae-yong (Park Yoochun) and Park-ha / Hong Bu-yong (Han Ji-min) makes it even more interesting and likeable. Episodes 1 to 9 has a lot of funny scenes and the rest of the episodes are very intriguing. Episode 19 made me so sentimental that I cried buckets of tears. Loose ends were all answered in Episode 20.

For all koreanovela fans, Rooftop Prince is highly recommended. I hope to watch another series that is as good as this one. If you have any suggestions guys please post them here.

Fabulous Find at Tomato Online Store

Tomato's online store is currently having its clearance sale and most items are up for grabs at 50% off. I took advantage of this and bought myself a Classic Chic Bangle Set for only P150 (added P50 for the shipping). I can't believe I was able to buy a twelve-piece bracelet set for such a cheap price. You can choose from three colors (blue, silver, and white). I chose white. The set includes:

2-piece silver coated bangles
3-layer bracelet with white pearls and silver beads
5-layer brass bangles in silver and gold
Silver bangle with flower detail on front

Better visit Tomato right away since stocks are fast running out. They also have so many things in store for their customers like the one day Beach Boys Yard Sale with 20% off on all men's clothing and accessories (excluding slippers and watches).
