My Perfect Hair Wax: A Panic-Buying Story

Many guys will agree with me on this. Finding the perfect hair wax for our hair is not easy.

Our hairs- though made of dead skin cells- have proven to be one of the “vainest” parts of the human body and a source of a gazillion of ideas and inspirations for the creation of the many hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, hair styling aids, accessories and etc.

Pardon the vanity.

5 Serious Reasons Why Bloggers Should Proofread

“My blog is not my college thesis!” 

I used to think Bryanboy was right. I admit. As a blogger, I also have my own share of grammatical errors, subject-verb disagreements and wrong schmellings. I think I can only count in my head the number of times I have diligently checked on my grammar, spelling and word-choice before I hit the “Publish” button. I used to think proofreading is not worth the time.

Until one day.

I was lucky to have been invited in an event organized by inWrite, a professional organization offering proofreading, copy-reading and rewriting services for serious bloggers.

Cave Man & Yeti + The Art of Shaving Ice

Remember what they told us in History about the ancient civilizations that used to gather snow from the mountains and turn‘em into desserts especially during hot summer days?

The Persian Empire actually poured grape juice over the snow and then eat it! And then there’s the infamous Roman Emperor Nero who used to send slaves to Apennine Mountains to collect snow and then top it with fuits, nuts and honey.

Well, we’re going back old school again as we visited Cave Man & Yeti- a small shop near Eastwood City and St. Pio Center. They serve a curious dessert called “shaved flavored ice”.

Ready? Here we go!

It’s perfect for people who are looking for rare stuffs that sometimes we can only find in flea markets or maybe Etsy.

Gigantic Siopao for Gigantic Cravings + PVL Siopao

My friend Keng Keng told me one day about the existence of this giant siopao that she swore I should find and blog about when I get the chance. Being a sucker for siopao I was, I thanked God that Keng Keng was my friend and then started to daydream about that giant siopao- its pure white and heavenly fluffy outer bun, its savory -meaty inner core and its delightfully sweet and sinfully tasty sauce that can melt the sadness of the world away!

Look at that!

The VIP at the Sweden Pavilion + World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China

Last year, I was very lucky to have been accepted as one of the scholars of the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation - China Scholarship Program and attend one of the most prestigious universities in mainland China- Fudan University. Adding more to that luck, Fudan University is located in Shanghai- the cosmopolitan city of China dubbed as the "Paris of the East". It was a beautiful city and I lived there during the first half of my year 2010.
