PINK HAIR EXPERIMENT. I uploaded photos and videos of me sporting a pink hair on my Instagram account and I had mixed comments about it. But it was actually an experiment at work! I’ve pranked everybody. HAHA. Want pink hair? No problem. 🤯 Here’s how? INSTANT GLAMOUR WITH PEARLS There’s no denying, nakaka instant “shala” / “glam” / presentable ang pearls. It is also … Continue reading Pink hair & Instant Glam with Pearls!
“Let’s go home. I miss mommy and Daddy.” “I miss Madam Amelia, too.” And we were off to Manila from Singapore. Stayed a couple of hours in NAIA Terminal 3, then flew straight to Legazpi via Cebu Pacific to meet my family and in-laws. I grew up in a province 4-6 hours from Manila and possibly, 4-6 hours as well to Bicol, where this gem … Continue reading One of the best road trips in the Philippines: Legazpi (Bicol)
When I started backpacking before moving to Singapore, the hardest part of the trip preparation was “informing” my dad that I’m off to somewhere. After graduating university, he totally changed his rule- “do whatever you want without asking for my permission but inform me. After all, I’ve walked that road before and… I’m your dad.” I knew he likes traveling and adventures but he was … Continue reading Taal Volcano Trek & Tagaytay Itinerary
I knew that this moment will drag me back here and write something that I’d love to remember years from now. As an expat in the little red dot, everyone’s in awe whenever I tell stories of how Pacman turns the busy streets of Manila (and all parts of the Philippines) into ghost town whenever he has a fight. As crazy as it sounds, it’s like an unsaid … Continue reading Pacman survived the “bad weather”
Are you a Filipino? Aside from Jollibee, you probably consider “Eat Bulaga,” the longest running noon time show in the Philippines, a part of your memories growing up. I do. And I follow them on Facebook. And if you’re like me, you should’ve followed (cause it’s just in your newsfeed! Haha) Paolo Ballestero‘s journey to the #MakeUpTransformation stardom. It went viral and was picked up … Continue reading #TransformationTuesday
Jollibee is my childhood hero. Though I’m not a big fan of fast food, I crave for the regular yum, spaghetti and chicken joy every once in awhile. Up to now, there are very few Asian (except Japanese) brands that become “global brands.” And for the Philippines, Jollibee is one brand that the country can be globally proud of and call its own. I visited home 2 … Continue reading No more #ChickenSad, #HaySalamat!
For all we know, digital and social is a very fast-paced industry and we- marketers, social media practitioners, entrepreneurs and even CEO, CMO, CFO- all have to keep up with the changes. At some point, what we’ve mastered about Facebook ads or Twitter content best practices last year may not be applicable to our campaigns this year. So I thought of curating some relevant social media news, specifically in Asia (cause you’ll read those big news/changes in The Next Web, Mashable or Tech in Asia) so I’ll be updated together with you.
For now, I’ll be repurposing some of the content that I’ve written in We Are Social Singapore’s Tuesday Tune Up. But will be curating more as much as possible in the days to come. Have fun!
No wonder my social feeds are full of selfies! Haha. According to Time magazine’s The Selfiest Cities in the Word report (via TechInAsia), The Philippines emerged as the selfie leader in Asia followed by Malaysia. TIME counted the Instagram photos with #selfie hashtags and geographic locations for two five-day periods between January and March through the site’s API. The high selfie rate may be attributed to the growing … Continue reading #Selfie leader in Asia: Philippines
Some people think that eating “balut” is a challenge in X Factor, some people likes it too much that they even make it to several different dishes. As a Filipino, I prefer eating it the traditional way: boiled with vinegar or salt. You might or may not agree with me, but the taste of balut brings me memories of home that only belong to the … Continue reading
