Jing Monis Salon at Bellevue Hotel Alabang: Two Toned Soft Long Layered Goddess Hair Makeover
Jing Monis Salon at Bellevue Hotel Alabang: Two Toned Soft Long Layered Goddess Hair Makeover: Early this month, I am getting frustrated with how dull and lifeless my hair was.

Women normally do crazy things with their hair when they are heartbroken, I am one (haha). I am an avid fan of hair treatments and hair color. Lately, my trips to the salon are getting frequent. I used to have my hair rebonded and now I…

Filipina Wanderer. Ever wonder what other cultures say to us Filipinos? Recently, I have been interacting with foreigners. I was amazed and sometimes appalled with how they think Filipinos are. A stereotype is a thought that may be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things, but that belief may or may not accurately reflect reality. The Ideal Pinay. She is exotic, petite and submissive. Half of this is true. Filipinos is mixed. We are either from a Chinese, Japanese, Spanish or European decent. In general her looks will be like this: her height is 5’2,…

Ilocos and Beyond
Filipina Wanderer travelled Ilocos and beyond. Most of my shots are my stock photos from a previous travel in Ilocos Norte particularly in Pagudpud and Laoag. Hello there! Welcome to Pagudpud. Pagudpud is in the tip of Luzon. This is actually the gateway of Ilocos Norte (where my father’s clan is) and Cagayan Valley (my mother’s hometown). As a kid we usually pass by this route, I was able to ravel the changes thru the years. Its a 4 hour drive from Laoag to my Mom’s, which oftentimes I am sleeping from the entire trip. 🙂 There are actually great…

50 Shades Contract Review
The world went crazy when the E L James published the book. So what is this fad about? You would see the ladies going vocal about their love for Grey. It was originally a fan book based on the characters in Twilight and the authors unique question on what would it like to be if you are engaged in a Dominant-kinky-kind-of-relationship. I love the author. I followed her on twitter before I even read anything, and she followed back. (Sweet) And I am now taking my own big and small insights of the chapters, the books and the entire trilogy.…
