April, 22, 2014, Quezon City – Time for sunflower picture taking at the stretch of University of the Philippines Diliman as these stunning flowers comes in full bloom this April. What makes it more memorable this year is at the same time as sad news to future graduating UP students as they will embark with UP Diliman’s University Council’s approval of academic calendar shift which meant commencement exercise will be scheduled on June.

When it comes to good health and sanitation women possessed the instinct of knows-it-all attitude because of her ability to make proper judgment; she’s not afraid to try and make observation on every detail of cause and effects. If it achieved a GO signal then it’s considered safe for her family.

Korean Hair Cut for Summer


Salon operated by Korean entrepreneurs are currently overrated, despite the intriguing rates consumer’s particularly Filipinos’ fascination to Korean trends make this businesses stands on its own. Making it a hip to those who has tried it and walks the runway with flare! :)

Recently while doing the weekly grind of grocery hoarding, we stumble upon a newly opened Korean salon here in the most hated mall of the sosyals! LOL (some hated it because of mall goers undisclosed characters and rampant snatching if you’re not careful enough while doing your window-shopping.) You’ve probably heard of Ever Gotesco Commonwealth? Visit the basement area, standing at the right corner are the Korean hair cutters/permers from Brian’s Hair Cafe. I haven’t done my hair yet but I checked the rates and made comparisons against the “Toni” giants, it’s way incomparable!

Thank you March!

March marks another year of accomplishment both for parents and children’s hard-work and resiliency. Deiville’s sharing a few highlights from March activities we had from parenting to blogging perks. :)

Recognition Day’s academic award from our child is truly appreciated, the fruit of her labor. Came from her own efforts and learning capabilities. Her school does not have the honor program, instead the system recognizes the children’s talents and skills by having a yearly social, sports and academic activity. Before the academic year ends, all levels compete with one another in an annual Quiz Bee. For Grade 1 level it has 2 sections with 34 to 36 students each section. My child received a Bronze medal (third place) overall from the Quiz Bee result. Good job! :)

Bloggers are usually invited to promote brands/media launch, thus PR companies or organizations connect with them to create buzz and influence a target audience. And when an event are scheduled to happen, bloggers ideally are given chance to personally experience and have a first-hand look/feel of what to summarize on their blogs.

This blog post serves to assist blogger Vance Madrid and her mom, for PR agencies/organizations to make a concrete crisis management   and to make this incident a lesson for everyone.

Last April 5 (Saturday) blogger Vance Madrid (www.purpleplumfairy.blogspot.com) joined an out of town (outdoor adventure) invites in Porac, Pampanga. This fun-filled bonding activities allows media people to bring or tag a friend or family members to join and explore the soft opening of the theme park. Unfortunately Vance and her mom Rica Madrid had an accident from an ATV ride causing her mom a pelvic/hip fracture and confinement at the Orthopedic Hospital in Banawe, Quezon City, scheduled for a knee operation. Vance is asking for financial support and blood donation from the blogging community (brought about by the absence of the organizers at the time of the mishap).
