+ Davao chics are surely gonna lose their heads (and money!) because of this CRAZY JULY SALE. Brought to you by top European fashion brand, PROMOD, and Europe’s leading fashion accessory brand, PARFOIS. I won GCs for these chic brands but too bad I spent them too early. Tsk, tsk! Well, you can’t blame me; their collections are truly AWESOME and versatile. Wanted to own some pieces before they

Everywhere we go, we are flooded with man made images, more commonly and collectively referred to as Graphics Design. We see them in the gigantic streetside billboards, in public service announcements, in job postings, even with graffiti. It’s obvious this industry is getting bigger and bigger; as evidenced by numerous graphics design companies here in Davao city. (And why, yes, the rest of the world too.) And as the popularity
Whenever people say derogatory things about gay people or use terms pertaining to gay people to talk about things which are not very nice, very few people would get disturbed. What’s there to be disturbed about, after all? It’s not like it isn’t widely practiced. It’s not like it’s new. It’s not like…we aren’t guilty of it ourselves one time or another. I am a strong advocate of gay rights.
Any smart home maker can really attest to this: one of the smartest things that you can do when you’re grocery shopping is to buy in bulk. This is because you can really save a lot when you do so. See, when the manufacturers price the things that they make (and sell), they incorporate this cost we call “overhead”. This counts for the electricity used in making the product,
I have been blogging for a while. But I have been writing for a very long time. Writing is something that’s very dear to my heart. A few years ago, I started writing for this paper because Ma’am Amy (the editor-in-chief) found many things useful with the things I write for young people. Up to now, she is a very strong supporter of young writers and of young people. “Youth
I look around the streets of Davao and I see that there are a lot of salons just sprouting around. Sometimes it makes me wonder if all of the beauticians have really undergone good training since I know that whenever I sit at a salon chair, I put a big part of my life in the hands of some person I don’t personally know. I’ve been to cheap salons and
If you ask the fresh graduates what their intended college course is, a few would talk about the courses offered by JoBS Academy. In this school, there’s no Commerce, Nursing, Engineering , Psychology or Political Science. However, JoBS Acacemy offers courses which are related to creative communications and arts; and most of these courses are in demand not just abroad but here in the Philippines as well. (Note that many
What is Speed Dating? Speed Dating is an event where men and women (equal numbers) are rotated so they can meet everyone else in a string of speedy dates. These dates usually last from 3 – 9 minutes, depending on the event organizer. When the time allotted for the “date” ends, the organizer rings a bell to inform the participants that it is time to move to the next date.
Last Saturday, June 11, 2011, Vice Ganda wowed Davao once more with her funny antics and evil humor. Months ago, I was itching to go to a Vice Ganda concert in CAP auditorium but then again I didn’t have enough money to afford the best seats in the house. Ticket cost for my partner and I would probably cost me 6x my monthly phone bill so you get the idea.
Yesterday was a very fun (and tiring!) day for my career as a wedding coordinator. We shot Tahnee and Paul’s pre nuptial photos with our event photographer DJ Tadena. Makeup pro Melody did Tahnee’s make up and I did the creative direction. That was our first pre nuptial photo shoot; although Melody and I have already supervised and conceptualized for couple shoots before. For this project, we weren’t able to book
