What's The HYPE?

As much as we hate to admit it, public transportation in the Philippines is way behind when it comes to our neighboring ASEAN countries. What's worse is that almost every one waste a lot of time commuting around the metropolis, not to mention have a hard time getting a ride.

There are TNC (Transport Network Companies) but the units vs the daily commuters are not really enough to provide adequate transportation to the commuters.

iACADEMY: The Perfect School for Millennials

Almost every one I know experienced the pains of choosing the right college course during high school. Of course, that was the time when senior high school is not yet implemented in the Philippine educational system. Popular courses back then was B.S. Nursing and B.S. Accountancy because it is common knowledge that these courses were very much in-demand here in the country and abroad.

Luckily for students now, Senior High School was implemented 3 years ago. That means, incoming Senior High Students has the advantage of being more prepared in terms of what course to take up in college thru STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), ABM (Accounting and Business Management), HUMSS (Humanities and Social Science), GAS (General Academics Strand) strand. During Junior High School, the students undergo several career test that will determine which strand is best suited for them so that when they enter Senior High School, they are already grouped based on what strand is suitable for them because each strand has specialized subjects that corresponds to the course that they will take up in college.

And as we move on unto the 21st century, parents are much more supportive when it comes to choosing the perfect Senior High School for their millennial kids because we all live in a competitive world after all.

SM Market's the Tasting Corner

Ah, coming of age. For a lot of us, growing up came with a taste of the finer things: a good meal, a night out, and a few drinks. For those just starting to be familiar liquor, it can be a trying time, filled with too-sweet cocktails and discovering drinks they would never try again. 
For some, it’s all about building alcohol tolerance, but for the wise few, it’s about finding what you like and learning “the perfect serve” for each drink. This is what sets the people who know how to drink from the newbies.  It’s not about knowing how to drink more, it’s about knowing what to drink, or what most people would call “the good stuff.”

Cetaphil PRO for Atopic Skin

"Beauty is being comfortable and confident in your own skin." - Iman

Alas, this is not true for some of us, particularly those who suffer from atopic skin. Having skin problems can literally take a toll on one's self-esteem most especially for teenagers and young adults.

But what is atopic skin? By definition, it refers to skin that is red and itchy. In other words, it is eczema or sometimes called skin asthma. Cause can range from simply having sensitive skin or even stress (especially for adults).

Commuter Tales 101

My dream for Metro Manila is to have an efficient transportation system at par with the key cities in Asia. Yes, that is my dream.

As a commuter, I spend much of my time being stuck in traffic and in worst scenarios- not being able to get a ride because cab drivers are being choosy with destinations (or the offer you a ride but will charge you exorbitant fare). Of course, there are jeepneys and buses and the LRT/MRT but it really depends on where you are going and riding LRT/MRT especially on rush hour is like being trapped like a sardine inside a can.

BUDGET TRIP: Kuala Lumpur + Siem Reap

We just did an 8-day multi-city trip last June and it was wonderful. And the best part about the trip was that we saved a lot because wewaited for promo airfare.

This is my first time to book an airfare several months prior to the travel date because of  that thrill of being able to book that much awaited seat sale promo. Actually, the chosen dates was a shot in the dark because when I booked the flight, I didn't know yet when will my daughter's class end and her graduation (Grade 10) schedule is. Luckily, every thing fell into its rightful place and we're able to fly to our selected destinations with the best travel deals- promo airfares, and even got the perfect hotel location.

I've been using the services of Grab for a long time now and I've very happy with it. In fact, I've also used the services of Grab when I went to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in Vietnam, Bangkok in Thailand, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, and Siem Reap in Cambodia. In Cambodia though, the service is both for tuk-tuk and sedan. Of course, we can't resist booking a Grab TukTuk as we find it cheaper than the regular tuktuk. Also, Grab is definitely cheaper than taking the cab especially in HCMC.
