Adulting Gear: Liquid Leap Active by Acer

October 8, 2017

I didn’t intend to post a review on any gadgets or whatever because it’s not my cup of tea, not unless they are geeky gadgets for gaming and stuff that prolly be posted on vi-geeky.com.

Last October 2, 2017, I got to attend TECHnomy Forum that tackles about Technology and Economics brought by Acer Philippines and Microsoft Philippines. They also introduced to us their latest gaming rig, the Predator Triton 700 which you can read on my geek blog.

As a token, we were given a Liquid Leap Active by Acer which is a fitness band with a bit of smartwatch functionality. As an adult currently struggling in adult, I believe that the most important thing to watch is not my savings or my career but health.

The problem here is I don’t like wearing any accessories at all. I’m lowkey because I’m a bit careless. I wore a 20-something karat ring but I lost it while swimming, I can’t sleep wearing earing. The last time I wore a watch was when I was in the third grade, I always forget that I am wearing a wristwatch and ended up soaking wet. This time I might consider being extra careful because I decided to wear this Liquid Leap Active fitness band by Acer.

Technology’s Role in Economics

October 4, 2017

Technology plays a vital role right now in our fast-paced world. I remember during our class on Economics, my Professor said that technological advancement and economic growth are related. Just take a look at Japan right now.

Technology adoption and transformation play a vital role in boosting the competitiveness of local business and industries, specifically the burgeoning MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises sector. This is the clear message of Acer Philippines’ TECHonomy Forum.

Acer Philippines and Microsoft Philippines brought TECHonomy to Cebu last Monday for its second stop after a successful launch Manila recently.

Olango Island: Appreciating Marine Life on a Rainy Weather

September 26, 2017

I thought I wouldn’t enjoy yesterday because of the weather. It was raining. It has been raining for almost a week already, causing floods all over Cebu. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this kind of weather, as a matter of fact, I love it, I wouldn’t use AC or the electric fan too much and I could sleep peacefully and comfortably during the day as I work at night. But if you have a planned trip which feels better if the weather is fine and sunny, you just wish that doing the sun dance is freaking effective but I WAS TOTALLY WRONG, rain did not change what’s going on under the sea, and the sea is even calm and warm. Rain or shine life goes on underwater.

Yesterday, I experienced few first time moments. One is riding a motor boat knowing that the weather is not good, I would usually backed out because yes, I am chicken and I don’t know how to swim despite after taking swimming lessons during Red Cross Youth days. Two, snorkeling. I haven’t use a snorkel in my life and I am glad I found out how to use it on my own; of course I’m wearing a life vest because swimming is not life.

Living Away From Home So Far

September 19, 2017

It’s been more than a year since I started living away from home, away from family, away from love ones and most especially away from my comfort zone.

Technically, I live with my brother but I feel like I am living alone due to our work schedules. I hardly see him on our rented place. We buy our own food, supplies and stuff. We don’t rely on each other that much but I do care about him. We send messages on facebook messenger from time to time. We do go out and eat sometimes.

Sometimes, I still think if living away was a good decision. I still feel anxious all the time. Most of us when were kids dreamed about having our own place when we turn adults. As for me, I just want to live in our house forever. A certain internet meme, sums up my feels, it’s about an adult asking to live back to their house, begging to be a dishwasher for life and escape the reality of working, paying bills and such, it was really hilarious, it hit me to the core.

Living away was never in my plan, it sometimes crosses my mind but I would immediately hide it away because living with family is really comfortable even if we don’t have all resources. I have my family who would do chores for me, cheer me up when I’m down, including my pets. Everything changes when you live away from home. They say, one sign of being independent is living away from home. I always thought I’m independent enough even if I live with family. I pay my college tuition before, isn’t that independent enough?

BEST MONEY SAVING TIPS: Adulting Tips

June 10, 2017

According to statistics, only 4 out of 10 Filipinos have savings. One reason is most Filipinos are not aware how banks works or they just don’t know how to save.

Adulting is hard. Really hard. I realized it when I decided to live in Cebu alone (not really, I’m with my brother but technically due to work schedules, we rarely meet) From eating, cooking, commuting, doing laundry, cleaning all by yourself, the hardest part is the budgeting. But to tell you honestly, budgeting is the most fun for me. I get to manage my own money unlike before, whenever I ran out of allowance I could just easily ask my Mom or Dad to give me even if I’m already a working young adult. Such shameless days.

Watsons #Hairgoals: Get that dream hair!

May 25, 2017

Ever came to a point where having a plain black hair feels so boring? I felt it. As a Filipina, I have my jet black, straight hair ever since. Not that I’m complaining, I love how I can style any style I want, long, short, curly, shaggy. But yes, I came to a point where having a black hair feels so plain.

It was last year when I decided to be braver and ticked off one of the things on my bucketlist—color my hair. I went to a salon but wasn’t satisfied with the results so I did a DIY color my hair. I never felt so liberating in my life. I remember one of my friends in the province said to me this when she saw me for the first time after coloring my hair,  “Does your mom agree with what you did to your hair?” I just replied that I didn’t ask for her permission and laugh it out. I think this is one of a perks of being a member of a traditional Filipino family, you have to ask permission of what you want to do even if you’re already a working young adult. But gladly, my Mom was not shocked; she even liked what my new hair color is. Months later, I decided to chop it off because summer and mom was not happy about.

Here’s a glimpe of my colored hair.

Anyway, I feel like coloring my hair once again. Blonde, rose gold, ultra dark brown, ash brown. How about, pastel ones and those bold, bright colors. I always dreamed of having a dark blue locks. Did you guys know that hair coloring is easy to do? Just get yourself the right products and viola! Hashtag, hairgoals it is!

Though, coloring your hair is not the only way to achieve hairgoals. Styling it is one of the easiest ways. High pony? City sleek? Short messy shag, undone waves or messy braids.
Stress not, sunny people.

10,000 Roses Cafe in Cebu

March 11, 2017

Last month, 10,000 Roses Café had it’s soft opening and Cebuanos flocked over to Cordova to visit the said cafe, it became so trending and now one of the tourist attraction.  This cafe is located in Cordova, Cebu almost an hour away to Cebu City (I don’t know if it’s less traffic). It’s just beside the floating restaurant, Lantaw. It was inspired by Dongdaemun Design Plaza’s LED Rose Garden in Seoul Korea. Korea’s version has a lot more of roses but nonetheless, Cebu’s version is so magical already. (How much more in Korean, mga oppa nako!)

So we went there unplanned because well, what to do when bored, right? It was like a friend messaged you, “let’s laag? where? basta!” and poof! So Yassi and I decided to meet at Parkmall. Continue Reading…
