Anti-gravity hair


TEMPUS Fugit, so the adage goes. Time flies, actually flees. Not for the young, mind you, they have the luxury of boredom. Which brings me to another saying I have carried with me for a very long time as one of my favorites: How can you kill time — without injuring eternity? Urban Turban appears […]

Of charms and crystals


IT’S ONLY been a recent interest of mine—this fascination with crystals and what they can do. To be honest, I was never a new age kind of girl. I’ve been very conservative with my beliefs, and always avoided discussions about metaphysics, or anything I would label as supernatural. Life is busy enough as it is, […]

Tokyo drift


WHEN one thinks of mega cities, Tokyo always appears near the top of the list. I’ve always been fascinated with this bustling Asian hub because it showcases the best of the best from this side of the world, going head to head with New York, London, Paris, and Sydney in terms of cutting edge technology, […]

It’s the last few days to Christmas and if you followed my advice from the previous article, you should be feeling cheery and stress-free despite the party fatigue. It is highly […]

The holidays are coming!


Be kind. This season, while we enjoy all things lavish and extravagant, may we never forget others who do not have the means to celebrate for Christmas, the ones who need to work instead of spending time with their loved ones, the ones who forego their own comfort in service of others. I ALWAYS have […]

Happy kikay Halloween


AH… the familiar sight of plastic jack o’lanterns, rubber ghoul masks, black cloaks and the Grim Reaper. Halloween is definitely coming for us in a few days, and that can only mean one thing: an excuse to parade around town in costume! From what I hear, Cebu will be hosting lots of awesome spooky parties, […]

The magic of the yes


BEING an only child with overprotective parents, I grew up using “No” as my default answer to everything. Let’s go outside and play in the rain? No. Let’s ride a boat to the deep part of the sea and jump in? No. Let’s play hooky at school and go to the mall instead? No. So, […]
