Christmas in the (Lion) City

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... in the Lion City.

Huge Christmas tree at Marina Square mall

Ahhh... Christmas.  My favorite season.  December is definitely my favorite month since not only does my birthday fall on a day in this glorious season, it's also one of the most heartwarming and festive holidays ever.  People just seem so cheerful and kind during these final months of the year (although I wish the kindness would be a year round thing).

Here in Singapore, Christmas is, of course, also celebrated with much festivity and cheer.  But unlike in the Philippines where decors and seasonal songs can be seen and heard as early as September or October, here it only starts to show by early November (the latest).

We'll be lucky enough to be spending Christmas and New Year's days with the family back home (I am actually counting down the days already.  Wheee!!!)  And it will feel so good stepping on Philippine soil again, no matter what our country's state may be in.

But till that day comes, I'll be content admiring the festive decor around Singapore.

Advance Merry Christmas, everyone!

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!  =)
