Hello and welcome to my site. A personal page for me to blog about my experiences, spur of the moment thoughts, feelings, travel, and etc. I hope you have fun reading my entries as much as I enjoyed writing them. Please feel free to leave your comments and messages.

A couple of months ago, Red Chair Confessions launched a running video campaign all over the internet. I was able to come across this video a lot of times in Youtube. I couldn't help myself from getting so intrigued when I watched it for the first time. I was so clueless during the first half of the video. I though the campaign was about a new chocolate bar or something (a chocolate bar so good, that it makes you feel so sinful in every bite). Apparently, I was wrong...

"Who would've known?" is right. I was very surprised when I found out that this was about Talbots. I honestly didn't get it right away. But I was so amazed when I finally did. I think it's so cute and funny. A young and modern woman couldn't believe that she finds pleasure in shopping at the same place where her mother and high school professor buy clothes from.

Now, Talbots is tapping into today's younger generation of women by adding hip, sexy, timeless, and affordable pieces to their collection. They can now compete along side with those other well known brands in the market that caters to all age groups as well.

I am a big fan of their sweaters and coats. I'm guilty of shopping there too through their website.

So, what are you waiting for? Try to visit Talbots now and share your favorite item here after browsing into their products. Happy shopping!


I've been blogging for quite some time now and I still could not understand how to get a Pagerank (PR) for my site. I've read a few descriptions from the internet, and according to the numerous explanations I've stumbled on to, a PR helps you determine if your site is consistently visited my a large number of visitors per day... So, the more famous your site gets, the higher your rank could be. Right?

But how can I promote my site? Aside from visitng and exchaging links with other blogs, what else could I do? I would really appreciate your suggestions. :) Thank you!!! Happy blogging :)

R.A. Gapuz Review Center is a well known company here in the Philippines. They conduct review courses for nurses who wishes to pass the local licensure exam, NCLEX, CGFNS, IELTS, and TOEFL. I enrolled on one of their review programs for the national licensure examination last 2007 and I passed. I relied a lot from their materials and read only 3 books (which is quite a few, compared to how many my batchmates were reading at the time).

I've learned a lot from my last review so I decided to trust them again for my NCLEX on December. We're running towads our 2nd week right now and we've been mostly tackling about Medical-Surgical Nursing. So far, I've been liking it. It feels as if my brain's being drilled with so many informations all at the same time. My class starts at 10:30 am and we usually finish around 8:30 pm. So, you could just imagine, how terribly exhausting that it for the mind! But, NO PAIN, NO GAIN!

Health care professionals have always encouraged mothers to breastfeed their child ideally, right after birth up to twelve months. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes it as the gold standard in infant nutrition. Doing so benefits both the mother and the infant. Aside from the promotion of mother and child bonding, it also helps strengthen both parties’ health. For example, during breastfeeding, the mother passes antibodies to the infant that fights off microorganisms that causes infection. Mothers could also experience lactating amenorrhea, a natural contraception that may last up to six months.

Unfortunately, not all mothers could have the luxury of experiencing this task because they have to go immediately back to work, they’re on a maintenance drug, or they’re not in their proper health condition due to certain diseases. Because of this, they rather purchase the expensive infant formulas to alleviate their guilt without realizing that the cost doesn’t reflect the quality of the product at all. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes it a point that every product available in the market right now passed their standards. Store brand or private-labelled formulas are inexpensive yet it contains adequate nutrients that are equivalent to what the larger pharmaceutical companies has to offer. So instead of spending more money on those national brand formulas, mothers can now be rest assured that their kids are receiving the same amount of nutrition from buying store brand formula too.

And as of October 1, 2009, a new WIC (Women, Infant and Child Program) aimed at increasing breastfeeding rates among families. This can result to a 20% decrease in infant-formula subsidies, baby foods, juices, and fresh fruits and vegetables for babies. Thus, parents who previously had most of their formula paid for by WIC may now have to purchase formula on their own.


Me and my mom took my aunts in Trinoma three weeks ago to give them a short tour of Quezon City. I suggested that we park the car in Glorrieta, Makati so that we could just ride the MRT from there to Trinoma Mall. It felt as if it was a great plan because if I had driven the car all the way to North Avenue, it'll surely take us longer due to the bumper to bumper raffic. We arrived in Ayala around 3:30 pm, and we rode the MRT as soon as we got there. I was thinking that it'll be a fun and breezy trip since it wasn't rush hour yet.

After a few minutes, the train arrived in our station. We were all caught surprised as to how many people were riding the MRT at the time. We battled our way inside and endured the very small space we had to occupy while standing up as the train was moving. I got worried for my mom's safety because she wasn't fit to travel in her condition during the time.

I just kept telling them that the discomfort of the situation wouldn't last long. The trip from Ayala station to North Avenue took us less than 20 minutes. We would only have to torture ourselves for a short span of time. I figured that once we get pass this, it'll just be smooth sailing for the rest of the trip.

When we finally got to North Avenue station, where Trinoma mall was... Our faces was in extreme awww! We were happy and grateful that we got there already. We walked around the whole place and felt kinda disappointed of what we saw. Trinoma mall is a well talked about place in Manila, so we expected a lot from it. It was a big and family-friendly place, but not something worth getting out of your way to go to. It'll be probably take me months before I go back there!

I think I’m a very cheap person. I usually just buy products off the sale rack. But after finding out about Talbots, I've discovered that being fashionable and cheap could go along side after all. You can check red chair confessions to know more about their styles. I was so surprised to see their wide collection of apparels, shoes, and accessories that were 50% cheaper than the items I regularly buy in the mall.

If I had $500 to spend, I would update my wardrobe with the sexy and classy pieces Talbots has to offer. Because we're right in the middle of the rainy season, I'm thinking of pulling off the Knits and Purls look.

Here's an idea of what I'm talking about. My top picks for the perfect rainy day attire:

Buckle-kitten Heel Pumps
Classic pumps that can fit any type of style you're in the mood for. I highly advise this for the working women who’s always on the go. The heels are not too high, so it gives you the convenience of going up and about your business without easily tiring yourself.

Straight-leg Jeans
You can never go wrong with denim. This specific cut gives you the illusion of longer and leaner legs no matter what your body type is.

Flyaway Cardigan
I love cardigans. It gives you that relax and fresh look at any given occasion.

Pebbled Leather Tote
Not only is this bag very stylish, but it provides you with more space for your everyday paraphernalia.

Pearl Cluster Necklace
Sophisticated pearls with a new twist.

All that I have chosen above didn't even reach the allotted $500 budget. Thus, leaving me more money to spend! So, what are you waiting for? Try visiting Talbots now. Happy shopping!
