Diane Von Furstenberg for Roxy Surf Wear

Summer is here!  In a tropical island like the Philippines, we have the luxury to just drive a few hours to our enjoy our beaches!  There are also quite a number of surf spots that we enjoy and the ladies have been getting more and more involved with surfing!  We have a lot surf spots in the Philippines!  We are situated around generous bodies of water – South China Sea, Celebes Sea and the Pacific Ocean, giving us a good ride!

The most wonderful part about surfing is you feel good every time you ride that wave.  You brave yourselves to either battle, or go with the waves to get a good ride.  And for every brave heart you give, you gain a whole lot of confidence that trickles down to your entire well-being.  We feel good, and we have to look good!  Why not?  Looking good and gearing up for the challenge gives you an armor of confidence!

Dressing Up as Christina Aguilera

I love dressing up!  I bought a lot of wigs in Hong Kong and I never got to use them…

leopard print pants – from Sungei Wang, Bukit Bintang Malaysia

I didn’t have any makeup available but I only had powder, iNuovi red lipstick and eye liner we bought from 7/11

I had to improvise and just used eye liner for my eyes.  My red lipstick from iNuovi should do the trick as Christina loves red!

I love to dress up, but I also love to give love this Christmas. I donated a few of my clothes to Sendong victims. Also, I donated a part of my first salary via Buyanihan.

I hope you too can spread the love :) For a minimum of P50 (half a cup of coffee), you can already help ^_^

Start sharing here.

Give up half a cup of coffee for Sendong victims <3

Office Flair: Country Girl

Office Flair: Country Girl

I haven’t been really “Dressing Up” when I was freelancing because I stayed home and worked at home all the time.  The only time I dress up is when I have a meeting or when I go to events.

And since I have a rockin new job that I love – everyday, I am forced to dress up pretty nice 😛

I haven’t been documenting my outfits since my first day here, but just today – I decided to do so.  I am now a certified “Office Lady” again as my friends from Malaysia would put it.  

 

For today, I got lazy to think of what to wear at all… It’s Friday, 2 days before Christmas and I just want to get this day over with!

First thing I saw was jeans.  I barely wear jeans! Except when I wear Levi’s coz it’s one of the brands that I have a perfect fit.

Another CHEAT, you can transform it into a bubly mini dress!

Dress of the Day

Hannah Villasis

*can you see the bruise on my right leg >.< other

After Pole class, I rushed to watch X-men First Class!

All I can say is, you have to watch it!  The movie is dubbed by reviewers and critics as the best Marvel ever made so far! I won’t give any spoilers but do enjoy the movie over the weekend yah?

I had to put on some cologne, baby powder to freshen up and a blooming dress!  It’s so hot in Manila and it feels like it’s either summer or typhoon season @_@

oh yeah, and after a month and a half of pole class, I can finally do this:

yaye!

But of course, I need to practice more for more awesome stuff… the Polecats teachers are super awesome as well as my fellow Pole Kittens (students)!  We give each other tips, we share stories and encourage each other ^_^ yaye to the new friendship! I love you guys *cyberhugzzz*

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Enchanted Garden and Disney Characters

Posted by on Apr 25, 2011 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Movies & TV, Travel, Uncategorized, Wardrobe

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Enchanted Garden and Disney Characters

Part 4 of my series of Disneyland posts! I didn’t want to put everything in one post!  Disneyland deserves more than just one and I don’t want to cramp everything in one go :) And for this post, I’ll be sharing with you my experience staying in Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel (yep that’s right!!!) and dining on Enchanted Garden and meeting Disneyland characters!  Staying at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel really completed our vacation because there are many perks in staying at any Disneyland Hotel!

Just to enumerate a few:

1. Living in a Castle

You will feel like you are in a huge castle!  Every detail of the hotel was well thought of from the carpet, to the wallpapers, the garden and even the tiniest details in our hotel room was all filled with Disney characters and well – Hidden Mickeys!  They were everywhere!

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 2 015

Looking at this photo makes me want to go back :)

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 2 020

Worry-free Hannah :) I wish I live here 😛

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 2 011

looks like a nice place for a garden wedding! 😛

Flowers bloom left and right!

Giant maze, kinda like the maze in Alice in Wonderland.

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 1 206

Hallways :)

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 1 223

Count!  7 dwarfs  -complete!

Really comfortable beds with MANY pillows!

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 1 217

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 1 213 Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 1 211

Big, comfortable bathroom – just the way I like it!

 

2.  Most Memorable Breakfast at Enchanted Garden

Grab some breakfast at the Enchanted Garden restaurant and get photo ops with four Disney characters! You can also take your photos with them in the Disneyland resort, but queue for line is usually long.

3. Easy Shopping!

Disney Hotels have their own store so you can purchase Disney merchandise without much crowd.

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 2 044

Invest in a cute hat or accessory!  This will make you photos look more fun, playful and lovely!

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 2 045

Wear this head band or bring this cute stuff toy around the Hong Kong Disneyland resort for more animated photos!

You can buy other props such as cute transparent umbrellas and goofy hats :)

You can even buy magic wands and crowns 😛

 

4. Meet and Greet with Disney Princesses

Disney princesses visit the lobby from time to time.  It’s the same advantage as no. 2 above.  They usually visit from 10:00 – 11:30 but these times may change so just ask for their visit hours at the lobby.

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 026

Wearing pink uggs to chill my feet and to keep comfortable with the day’s worth of walking :)

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 020

They really go into character!  look at how Alice stands up with her feet like that :) Watch the cartoons and you will see the exact same posture!

 

5. Princess Makeover!

If you have your own little princess (your daughter :P), they have a Disney parlor at the hotel and you can transform you daughter into a cute beautiful princess!  She can choose between Belle, Aurora (sleeping beauty), Cinderella and Snow White.

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 012

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 015Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 016

Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 017Hong Kong Disneyland 2011 Day 3 018

I swear, I wanted to just stay here because I wanted to become Belle at least for just a day!  But he dragged me out of there >.<

6. What it feels like to be a Princess?

Lastly, feel like a princess with the comfortable beds, the pool and the really nice spa with sauna and jacuzzi and massage!  The staff also wears a cute costume and you will feel like you’re in a magical world! la la la

 

Quick photo of me and QiuQiu in the Restaurant :)

Au Revoir for now! I have a Disney Train to catch 😛

New Michael Antonio Shoes White Leno-PU

OMGGG

I have a new baby!!!

Presenting, my new Michael Antonio shoes!

Michael Antonio White Leno Resorts World Newport Manila

I have been searching for a gnarly white pair of shoes but I haven’t found the one for me.  I have always been a fan of Michael Antonio and as I was shopping around Resorts World, I passed by Michael Antonio which had a sale of up to 50% off.  This sale is only ’till the end of February.  So head on to any branch of theirs to check out some items on sale.

Sale Michael Antonio White Leno Resorts World Newport Manila

The sale is only until the end of February 2011!

What attracted my attention though are these white Leno Michael Antonio shoes.  It was on the “New Arrivals” rack, therefore, no sale.  But still, the price was not bad for the quality and the design of the shoe and ka-ching-kaching I bought it!  I got it for P3,200 not bad for these awesome pair!

Michael Antonio White Leno Resorts World Newport Manila

oh, and the saleslady said that Anne Curtis bought the red one of this!

More Photos of other cool shoes I found around the Michael Antonio shop:

This shot was taken before the event.  It’s always nice to wear pants or leggings when hosting for more comfort when you’re up on stage.  It’s also advisable to avoid skirts because you might get upskirt photos from photographers lol.   With your legs covered, you have less to worry about and just focus on the lines you have to deliver Smile

Cost Management: Meralco Appliance Calculator, Fashion and Beauty

Posted by on Dec 6, 2010 in Business & Finance, Celebrities, Education, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Fashion, Wardrobe

Cost Management: Meralco Appliance Calculator, Fashion and Beauty

Ever since I passed my CPA Board exams, I struggled to become independent and live with my own means.  I bet all of us can relate or at least pay our own bills these days.  If you want to know which of your appliances give your wallet much burden then you should head on to Meralco’s website!

They put up this online web application called M.A.C. or Meralco Appliance Calculator a long time ago (like 2003) but I don’t think a lot of people know about it (did you? I didn’t!!!), so they launched it this time last Friday Smile To get started and check out what this cool application does, you can check it out right now on this link:

www.meralco.com.ph

If you want to be edumacated first on how it works then you can read on:

image

The Meralco Appliance Calculator (M.A.C.) has been a consumer’s electricity budget buddy since 2003. The M.A.C. is designed to be an electricity bill management tool of Meralco residential customers to help them: a) better manage their electric consumption and their electric bill; b) make wiser decisions in buying home appliances, and; c) get home energy efficiency tips that are customized to their home electricity consumption.

image

Although the M.A.C. has been around for many years now, new features and enhancements are constantly being introduced to enable it to cater to the  growing demands of electricity users. With the new Meralco Appliance Calculator (M.A.C), users can now have the option of using either “My Appliance Calculator” or “My Bill Manager”.

My Appliance Calculator” allows the user to calculate the estimated consumption cost of appliances – one at a time.

My Bill Manager”, on the other hand, allows the user to calculate the estimated consumption cost of appliances in a table format. It allows the user to get an estimate of the household’s total electric consumption cost and see which appliances consume more electricity.

Other features of the “My Bill Manager” menu include: consumption manager, energy efficiency adviser and target bill amount estimator. Consumption manager allows the user to see the corresponding electric consumption pie chart and some text description of the chart based on the information provided by the user. The energy efficiency adviser, meanwhile, allows user to see some energy efficiency tips based on the information provided by the user. The target bill amount estimator, on the other hand, allows the user to see an estimate of his “monthly target kWh consumption” and “estimated price per kWh” by just inputting the “target electric bill amount”.

Other new features of the M.A.C include: a) e-mailing of the M.A.C web link to friends through the “email” button; b) sharing the M.A.C web link to Facebook and Twitter accounts through the “share” button; c) sending feedback to Meralco regarding the new M.A.C through the “feedback” button; d) printing the computation results of “My Bill Manager” through the “print” button (for easy access and future reference of the computations), and; e) viewing the basis for computing the estimated electricity consumption of home appliances for the M.A.C application through the “formula” button (so that users can validate the results of the computations).

Some shockers:

1.  Air Conditioner really significantly contributes to higher monthly bill.  For example, using aircon 8 hours everyday in one month would equal to Php 2,067.

image

2.  Use of microwave oven is not that expensive!

For example, let’s say we use microwave oven for 15 mins every day for the whole month (which is an overstated amount).  It would only cost us P100 pesos that month.

image

You can Check out for yourselves how your appliances perform and how you can use it more efficiently. The M.A.C. is truly a user-friendly, interactive and valuable tool for cost conscious electricity consumers. Go give it a try!

Sisters in Style

With the MAC, our plan is to manage our household electricity costs within our budget.  Since the topic is a little bit on the practical side, they also invited Beauty and Fashion speakers to talk about Fashion tips that helps fashion conscious people style themselves economically.

Marie and Michi Calica graced the Meralco theatre with beauty and fashion tips that taught us how to get smarter with style.

ViVi Magazine

Posted by on Dec 2, 2010 in Bags, Beauty, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Shoes, Travel, Wardrobe

ViVi Magazine

I love Japanese fashion and I always appreciate how they express themselves freely when it comes to dressing up.  I went to Hong Kong just to grab myself a copy of Vivi Magazine where it is also being published.  For those of you who don’t know what Vivi magazine is, it is a Japanese fashion magazine published in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand only.  Target audience is college students and young office ladies.

Even if I don’t understand the Japanese or Chinese text on the magazine, I still enjoy the hip fashion all through out the pages.  And of course, I got a little bit disoriented reading the magazine from right to left @_@

These are just a few of the many pages of fashion and Japanese love.  It is autumn there now so you’ll see lots of fur, socks and boots.

I know I will be bored at Hong Kong International Airport while waiting for boarding so I bought other magazines too!

Vivi Magazine HKD $30

Absolutely love this fashion magazine!  You don’t need to understand Japanese much.  Well, I hope they have one in English Smile with tongue out

DSC_0039DSC_0040

Marie Claire HKD $35

The main magazine was thich and it had another magazine with it that focused on Gift Ideas.  Mostly luxury gift ideas like jewelry, perfumes and watches @[email protected] They were all in chinese too @_@ so I just looked at the product shots.  The magazine came with a FREE purse!  It looks simple and nice – something that I can definitely use.

DSC_0038DSC_0041

Cosmopolitan HKD $40

The Cosmo magazine included 3 magazines inside @_@ The main mag was super thick and they included Crab Tree products (hand lotion)  I love crab tree stuff and was happy to have a freebie lol.  Cosmo focused this time on Beauty Awards where they listed and ranked top and best make-up / beauty products out in the market Smile I think our local issue has this too so be sure to check it out Smile

I couldn’t appreciate the articles though because the test was all in Chinese.

TOTAL HKD $ 105 (charged my Credit card at Php 620.87)

So cheap for all these! with tons of freebies!!!

Anyway, it’s just nice to look at other country’s local magazines.  ‘Till the next travel ^_^

Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Day 2 in Hong Kong and we woke up late 😛 we roamed around central, tried out some awesome restaurants in Wellington street, shopped at H&M and went to Victoria Peak via the Peak Tram.  I swear, I could never get used to the 45 degree slope upwards and downwards (that’s what she said).  I still get scared with the height:P

Won’t go to details, will just update this post with awesome pictures that we took :)

DSC_0335

It was very cold like 10 degrees Celsius on my estimate (or lower) and it was a bit windy so the wind was just very chilly. I should’ve brought a thicker coat.

To keep myself warm, I did some abs exercises on the bench – no really – I DID! 😛

It was a bit foggy.  We paid HKD 60 for a digital copy (CD) of this photo from one of the photographers scattered atop Victoria Peak

You don’t have to go to the Sky Terrace at the Peak to enjoy the view.  Just go on the top most floor of the mall, you will still see nicely of Hong Kong skyscrapers at night.  We tried to wait for the lights show.  It was fail.  You should really watch it at Avenue of the Stars.  You won’t appreciate it if you watch it from here.

 walking outside our hotel to take the Hong Kong Tram for only $2 HKD flat rate so nice!

Below the Peak Tram

Deep inside, I’m very nervous with the train going up at 45 degrees (my estimate)

DSC_0144

Watching the Sunset atop the Sky Terrace was lovely.  It was very foggy though.  I love the reflection of the sun on the water.

Very happy :)

I wish I can jump off the top of Victoria Peak and fly like a Rocketeer :)

The fishies wanna attack my feet… this is the first time I’ve bigger fishes for fish spa – tickled like hell!  I got used to it though 😛 very relaxing.  If you want to try this at the Peak, go inside the mall and look for “Water Fish” we got 30 mins for HKD 180 – PHP 1200 – EXPENSIVE I know, but very relaxing and my feet rested for a bit :)

Beautiful Sights Georgetown in Penang Malaysia

Beautiful Sights Georgetown in Penang Malaysia

We arrived at Penang at around 7 am and we haven’t had any nice decent sleep.  We were supposed to walk around Georgetown and take pictures.  But we were really tired and sleepy so we just took these pictures while riding the bus hoping to walk around the city in the afternoon.  But we slept whole afternoon lol so we never got to have another walk. I know I haven’t captured everything in photos but Georgetown is really lovely and very rich in culture.  Georgetown Penang looks like our Vigan’s Calle Crisologo where old houses are preserved.  The only difference is Georgetown’s architecture looks more English or British and our Calle Crisologo looks more Spanish.  They also had cobbled roads like the one in Calle Grisologo Smile Anyway, here’s the best of my bus photos Open-mouthed smile

Kapitan Kling Mosque in Jalan Kapitan Kling

Tourists should be properly attired when entering the Mosque but I don’t know what is proper or not.  I never went inside anyway Sad smile

Another view of the Kapitan Kling Mosque

They also use the word “Kapitan” and I researched about the meaning.  “Kapitan Keling” means headman.

What I find really nice about this Mosque is the ocher yellow façade around the posts.
