My Attempt to Book Collecting (Part 2)

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who remembered and greeted me last Christmas. But of course, I would like to give my love to those who gave me Christmas gifts! (yeah, bias, I know). :)

Having recently posted my book collections, I was so touched that some of my friends thought about giving me something that would add to my collection. I was REALLY touched by the gesture since I NEVER received books as gifts (I once received a book, it was a little prayer book I think, I never got to read it and I think I lost it).

I would like share with you the latest additions to my book collection:

1. Diana The Making of A Saint by Ted Harrison

Thank you, Andrew, for remembering how much I love Princess Diana. I'm going to read this soon.

2. Pugad Baboy 5 and 6 by Pol Medina Jr

Pugad Baboy 5 is bookmarked because I'm currently reading it. Thanks a lot Boink and Nobita! :)

3. Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin by Bob Ong

This is the latest book from Bob Ong. Thanks for this Jay! :)

All gifts are well appreciated but these are the ones that seem so special.
Again, thanks a lot!


  1. wow you already have bob ong's new book. ingit :( hehehe

  2. Hi madie! I got one because a friend gave me one. :)

  3. Is it good? I lost my entire Bob Ong collection. My ex borrowed and never returned even when I asked for it.

  4. I am starting to collect also books, because of my son, hoping that I can attract him to read more

  5. My friend got that Bob Ong book for Christmas and showed it to me. I was so weirded out by the cover, and then I saw it was by Bob Ong. Hehe! I couldn't really understand the description on the back cover though... the Filipino was way too deep! :)

  6. Hi Kay! I haven't read (or even opened) the Bob Ong book. Will let you know once I've read it. :)

    Hi chrisair! I was exposed to books at a very young age. I think you're doing to right thing. :)

    Hi Mary! Yes, the book cover was a bit weird, I still have to find out why it had a scary cover. :|

  7. happy new year! dumami pa sana yan sa 2012 :)

  8. Bob Ong has a new book? Looks interesting. =)

  9. Hi Tin! Yes, I think it was just released recently. :)

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 

Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't. 
Here comes a more effective solution to prevent acne: Acne Care Beauty Soap.
