Snowbing Korean Dessert Café (Trinoma) Review

Wednesday, December 27, 2017

To put it in a K-lingo, Korea is clearly my bias country right now because (1) I got to see how literally beautiful this country is, (2) Korean BBQ is just the bomb, (3) their wide range of skincare selection is the best, and (4) I've fallen in love with K-indie [listen to Bolbbalgan4 on Spotify!!]

There's one K-thing I've yet to tick off on my to-do list when in SoKor though, until recently. That is to try Bingsu, also known as the Korean shaved ice dessert with different sweet toppings. It never crossed my mind to try one during my visit to Seoul because I was too preoccupied with everything that I'm seeing at that moment. Even if that's the case, I'm glad to know that there are legit places here in Manila where I can taste a legit one.

The World's Best-Selling Bottled Water Aquafina Arrives in the Philippines

Saturday, December 2, 2017

As a heavy water drinker, I make sure to always equip myself with water, whether I'm traveling or just working in the office. I drink a generous amount of coffee and tea on a day that's why I easily feel parched. Whenever I forget to bring my water tumbler, the convenience store is my way to go. I used to grab any brand of water in the fridge just because I'm clueless on what to pick. But that's about to change because of Aquafina.

The growing water category in the Philippines is shaking up because Aquafina, the bottled water brand trusted by consumers around the world, will soon reach the Filipino consumers. 

Just in case you are not familiar with this world-renowned brand yet, the Aquafina brand has won over consumers around the world since its introduction in the U.S. in 1994. It has been existing for the same number of years as me! 😅
