What started as a fairytale romance, birthed something that is known & loved in the Jewelry & accessories category in over 40 countries in the span of around 30 years.
Three decades ago when French photographer met a beautiful Japanese illustrator, a match in heaven was made for the two lovers who came from the opposite sides of the world. Fond of giving presents to each other, but the very first gift she received was the one that's most special - a necklace of Akoya cultured pearl. This was the inspiration that made the two to create a brand of pearl jewelry, and the rest they say is history.
Baby Company, launches Baby Company Buckle Up Baby, the biggest child car seat caravan in SM Mall of Asia a few weeks ago. This is an initiative aiming to support and promote the recent Republic Act. 11229, the Child Safety in Motor vehicles Act. The Law mandates that a child under 12 years old should be placed on a proper child restraint system. It states that the child restraint system must be appropriate to the child's age, height and weight and approved in accordance with the law.
The law was submitted to protect children whenever they are to ride into a motor vehicle. It is because there is an increasing number of child fatalities due to vehicular accidents. DOH released notes that vehicular accidents are now the second leading cause of death among children ages 0 to 17, which for me is me a bit alarming. Having a kid aged 3 and a half sure does remind me on the importance of having a secure and safe child restraint system when on a motor vehicle.

It's my first time joining the SAMSUNG PASS10N LAB and on this leg is with one of the PH's top spin coaches, Katz Salao who believes in the power of cycling as a way to staying fit.
PASS10N LAB is a series of workshops organized by Samsung to help the generation of trailblazers and like-minded individuals to take their passion to the next level. This covers entrepreneurship, photography, videography, fitness, and gaming. Those part of the Samsung Members app--an online community of loyal users also got to join health enthusiast Katz Salao for a round of indoor cycling.
I first tried indoor cycling 2 years ago for Uniqlo Sport, so I kind of had an idea what I was getting myself into, I guess was somewhat prepared. I met Katz a year ago during my #MargaritaLovesCointreau campaign and in that 1-year span, I think I've seen her engage more into this healthy lifestyle.
Three words that describe the passion of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel fans to one of the most famous basketball teams in the PBA. This is, of course, mirroring the team that lives and breathes the words, Never-Say-Die.
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel basketball games and its championship finals have earned die-hard fans for four decades. Win or lose, these fans have shown commitment to the team, and has chanted "Gi-neb-ra!" at one point in their games. Filling up the stadium and even drawing SRO crowds in the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena in Bulacan, the world's largest indoor arena. Indeed no other fandom has shown such devotion to a basketball team.

Estancia Mall had their first Summer Toy Fest just last week and it's some kind of awesome. The one-day event was filled with lots of different toy collectors & exhibitors where you get to buy toys for as low as P 20.

A few that caught my eye are the Lego miniature figurines and limited editions sets. I think I saw some lego bootlegs on some of the sellers, but hey, we don't discriminate here. I used to buy some myself :)
