My Choice for Top Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010

I've been a blogger since late 2005, primarily as a means to express my emotions through a safe, non-violent manner.  Apparently, bonking your boss on the head is equal to an aggravated assault charge.  Go figure!

Ever since deciding to blog for the public quite recently, I've visited a lot of blogs for inspiration.  I've seen the best and the worst.  Some inspiring, some just plain weird, but all provide good sources of information made readily available to the public.

So without further ado, I present my Top Picks for Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010:

1. Manila Blogs - from the creators of, this site aims to aid neophyte and professional bloggers alike in trying to find that perfect design for your masterpiece.  Filled with tips and handy tools, this site is truly heavensent for those new to blogging. (Although personally, I wish they'd use a different background.  A little hard to read some of their entries at times.)  =)

2. Foodie Manila - Travelling and food, in my opinion, always go hand-in-hand.  A great blog dedicated to both should not only be written eloquently (you are trying to describe the senses here), but should also be coupled with really great photos.  Foodie Manila has so ignited my senses that I find my tummy grumbling after reading a post.

3. Pinoy Green Academy - I've been searching for a local blog that focuses on anything "green".  So glad I came across this one.  Pinoy Green Academy is a socially responsible blog that focuses on providing a better and greener world for the future generation.

4. Geek Pinoy - everyone is a geek at heart, whether we accept it or not.  Geek Pinoy caters to anything and everything geeky, detailing them in a humorous and sarcastic manner.  Very good light read.

5. The Blogging Advertiser - a good source for learning how to market your blog from an expert media practitioner.  Didi Paterno also gives bloggers the "other side" of the story, from the point of view of one who has been on the other side of the process - the marketing person.

6. Nomnom Club - also another food blog with gorgeous pictures.

So, who are you gonna choose?  Pen those entries now and be counted!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
