What it's like to be with successful people when you're in the process of reaching your dreams? These days, the era of identifying millennials to show off their true nature is tremendously popular. They're very active in pursuing passion projects that are really disrupting for better results. The shining generation are full of dreamers with the spirit of achieving success by taking advantage of what's already within them. I'm talking here about innate talents that have been ignited to reach one's goals by using all available resources these days. That's what makes me believe in the live brighter campaign of Sun Life here in the Philippines.


It's even more enticing if you get to know the people who have moved mountains to be successful and are able to inspire all of us. Obviously, I was so lucky to attend an event graced by the first ever winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia," Jonathan Yabut, wherein it's a happening that gathers bloggers and financial advisors so we could listen to his story of how he rose from humble beginnings to become a successful businessman and an in-demand motivational speaker.


 Jonathan's story is very inspiring as he told us the real reason why he won the prestigious competition. He said that "I won because I was the most prepared contestant," and it really made me believe that preparation is key to achieve success.

Yabut, who served as Chief of Staff for AirAsia for a year after winning the reality television show hosted by Malaysian business mogul Tony Fernandes, now manages his very own JY Consultancy & Ventures, which operates in Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. It's an exciting venture because he's on his way to be at par with my favorite motivational speakers such as Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar and more. Since I'm collecting self-help books, I'm also planning to buy his published pieces.




In front of eager bloggers and financial advisors, Jonathan shared about the key principles that catapulted him to fame and success. He also emphasized the importance of serving a social purpose. After all, millennials love to give back to the community since it's an inspiration to keep improving one's work.

Aside from that, I'm so excited to keep the secret recipe to success and apply it on my daily tasks so I can be successful. With Sun Life's continuous efforts to spread awareness about financial literacy, I'll also be inspired to add my investment portfolio whenever I'm ready. I have only one so it's really beneficial to keep it growing.



Aside from Jonathan Yabut, Sun Life Financial advisor JP Cruz also spoke, providing bloggers an peek at his own career, as well as his personal journey. Personally, I learned a lot from him after he told us about how he reached rock bottom in both his finances and his love life, and what he did to overcome the struggle. As a present successful Sun Life advisor, Cruz interestingly mentioned similar thought to what Yabut emphasized: that is to have a deeper reason for the work one pursues. For Cruz, he was able to do it by helping people achieve a lifetime of financial security. Definitely, this will inspire more millenials to join the bandwagon of brighter future and well-balanced lifestyle.

"There's so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session, between Jonathan's and JP's stories. I'm sure that the bloggers who joined us in the venue and even those who tuned in via Facebook Live found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve," Sun Life Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager Fin Bernardo said. "We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It's a career that's definitely meaningful, and at the same time financially rewarding." 


"Live Brighter Sessions" are set to be held in Cebu and Davao. For more details, follow @sunlife on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Interested to become a Sun Life advisor? Visit Sun Life Advisor to learn more.

I've been reading a lot of books lately. I'm even updated with the latest K-drama news. However, I've been contemplating if I have the complete knowledge so far. What about financial literacy? Am I still afraid to think about it? Or am I just too lazy to spare something for the future? Well, it will get in the way of buying the latest clothes and accessories offered to fashion lovers. It will also affect my travel plans.

Two months from now, I need to maintain my investment tied up with a certain company. Even so, I'm still thinking of withdrawing it before the term is over. Luckily, I had a chance to think things so many times. I can't be wrong when it comes to financial security.

Luckily, I had a chance to attend the launching of a series of vlogs (video blogs) by actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI). It aims to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.

I've been working with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI) for almost two years since I really believed in their efforts to spread awareness about financial literacy. We all know that it will surely lead to financial independence.

Going back to the event, the vlogs are Dubbed "Make It Mutual," and it will tackle topics relevant to personal finance, such as growing one's money, beating inflation and investing regularly.The best thing about this is that the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others. See? It will help me manage my finances so I can travel, shop and invest at the same time.


It will be easy for all of us to access the vlogs since all videos will be shared through social media. In fact, the first video is already accessible through Sun Life PH Facebook.

Matteo has also shared some thoughts about the new campaign lately. "I am thankful for the opportunity to lead another financial literacy campaign for SLAMCI. It's definitely relevant and timely," Matteo said. "I myself have life goals I'd like to pursue, and I'm happy to share that ever since I "made it mutual" with SLAMCI, I've been well on my way to achieving all those goals. It would be great if more Filipinos can experience the same."

The campaign is also the latest in SLAMCI's efforts to boost financial literacy among Filipinos. It's really for all of us to learn and apply in our lives. After all, saving money is part of our everyday living. Basically, the campaign"Make It Mutual" aims to encourage Filipinos to invest in mutual funds so they can achieve their life goals. The company was also behind the "Slam The Scam" campaign which likewise starred Matteo, who shared tips on what to consider when choosing an investing company in order to avoid dubious organizations. That was the project of Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. that was launch last year.

I'm so amazed with the message shared by the President of the company. According to SLAMCI President Valerie Pama, the company is committed to helping more Filipinos discover the benefits of investing so they may reap its rewards. The commitment is even more relevant these days since many people are already seeking for knowledge about financial management, specifically about mutual funds. "We all have goals that we'd like to accomplish, such as buying a house or a car, traveling to a dream destination, or planning a wedding. These are goals that require a significant amount of money, and sometimes, Filipinos become discouraged knowing how much they need to raise to be able to fun their dreams," she said. "We'd like to show them that by saving and investing in mutual funds, all their dreams can become a reality. They simply have to "Make It Mutual."


Lastly, the "Make It Mutual" campaign is just the first of Sun Life's series of financial literacy initiatives this year. We will be given a lot of opportunities to learn from the company. According to Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa, more will be launched in this coming days as Sun Life rolls out its Financial Independence Month campaign in June. "We remain committed to this cause. Sun Life is always eager to promote it in ways that are creative, relatable, easily understandable," she said. "We will never tire of advocating financial literacy to Filipinos."

Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze. - Carolyn Gold Heilbrun

I love to read ever since I was child. When I was in grade-school I attempted to write a story but ended up only with snippets of scenes. Then life happens. I became busy being a teen, a college student, an employee and now a mother. But my love for reading did not change. It was only when I read a book; Interim Goddless of Love by Mina V. Esguerra awaken my secret dream to write again. So I read more books written by Filipino authors and join the #romanceclass community. It's my happy indulgence. When an opportunity came to write our own story and submit it, I took a chance. Nobody said it was easy especially for an aspiring writer like me. It took a lot of effort, years of practice and commitment before I could finally sent out to the world the story of my heart.

I am sharing this hoping to inspire some people who has a secret dream of writing too :)


My post will focus on Romance fiction

1. Fiction Writing in the Philippines
(Encouragement for aspiring writers)

From the Philippine Daily Inquirer article dated March 7, 2016

"Today, more romances in English are being published and made available to Filipino readers than ever before."

That being said, anyone who loves to read books and believes in the magic of romance: the happily ever after; have the opportunity to write his or her own love story.

Here's some of the tips I learned when you want to write your story.

A. Read a lot of books in different genre. Young Adult, New Adult, historical romance, contemporary romance, etc.

B. Read about different main characters and love interest. Here in the Philippines, most stories revolve around an ordinary girl meeting a guy who is ultimately rich and handsome and ends up with a happy ever after. You could explore more. Your main character can be an empowered woman who is working in a corporate world who meets an equally smart business tycoon. Or a chef falls in love with a rival chef.

C. Learn from the experienced authors. And aside from writing your story, you need to look at the technical side like finding a good plot, vocabulary, grammar, and how to use the punctuation marks appropriately.


D. Learn from the critics and readers. There are three different type of readers (source Mina V. Esguerra)

1. The encouraging reader
2. The encouraging critic
3. The critic - honest/brutal/harsh

E. Write anything that comes from your heart and what you truly enjoy. Writing should make you and the readers happy. It shouldn't give you too much stress. When you enjoy what you do, the words and ideas will flow naturally.

2. Popular fiction writers in the Philippines

Here's a link of the Famous Writers from the Philippines :
http://www.ranker.com/list/famous-writers-from-philippines/reference

For romance, this is my personal list of popular fiction writers:

1. Mina V. Esguerra
2. Six Delos Reyes
3. Tara Frejas
4. Ines Bautista-Yao
5. Anne Plaza
6. Agay Llanera
7. Jay E. Tria

There are a lot more of awesome authors that you can discover by joining the #romanceclass community group in Facebook.


3. Resources to improve writing novels

1. Attend writing workshops. There are people who offer writing workshops for free or you can enroll in a workshop to improve your knowledge in writing skills.

Here's the latest workshop that you may want to attend to from Mina V. Esguerra

#romanceclass intro: May 20, 2017

2. There are a lot books that will help you improve your writing skills. You just need to find a book that works for you. Mine is #romanceclass textbook by Mina V. Esguerra.

Here is the link where I bought the book by Mina V. Esguerra.

There are days when I just want to wander around and spend time with my mother. Let alone the days I spend time reading my favorite days, I still used to have free time for myself. That's important to have time to reflect and redirect my life.



One day, my mother and I decided to visit Dapitan City so we can tour around for the whole day. It was a trip that we didn't plan - just an inspiration from the beautiful places I see at Instagram. We chose Dapitan City because it is so accessible and we haven't tried eating in a more carefree way.

Luckily, we still see the restaurant that we have visited a year ago, the popular Kan-anan at Sunset, Boulevard in Dipolog City. I love grilled food so it's really the place for me. The dining place is so affordable. For less than P400.00, my mom and I got a chance to have a sumptuous brunch. All I have tried these is their grilled fish and I'll come back for more.

I've been there so many times and my close friend was so amazed that I know some people there. Maybe, it's because the dining area is so affordable and accessible for me. Also, it's located near Gloria de Dapitan.

I had a self-evaluation for the past two weeks, a time to reflect about the things that I've done so far and the things that I need to do. It was a long process because I have to consider the impact of every decision that I made lately. While doing this meaningful work, I listened to my favorite songs - mostly from the 80's and 90's that will make me remember about sophisticated musical instruments such as dj speakers check it out at GuitarCenter and other amazing tidbits about music.


I realized that I have a lot of things to change in the way I handle the challenges in life. I'm too fearless that makes it too boring. Maybe, I should tone down. I need to be less confident. It's not smart to look too fierce when life is really scary. Even a strong woman must slow down a bit.

From now on, I'll cherish every moment of my life. No shortcuts. We don't know what will happen next. If there are things that I don't understand, I shouldn't feel so learned that I don't need to ask anyone. I'll humbly ask questions to anyone, even to the ignorant. Sometimes ordinary people lead you to a much-needed enlightenment once in a while.

I had a long battle in this life. It wasn't all glamorous. The scars may not be visible, but the constant struggles remain noticeable. How will you face a life that's unique? Make your own choices. Just like what I did. I don't want other people to do the choosing for me. Obviously, you're aware that you should be the author of your own existence.

I wasn't able to post for the last two weeks, I apologize for that. I had an awesome vacation, that's why. It seemed that such a plan is necessary since I've been busy working for a year after my last trip away from the metro. By the way, how are you? I'm really grateful that you, my readers, stayed with me through the years.



During vacation, I just visited my favorite places. I also cooked delicious meals for my mother. I was able to bond with my dog. I also researched about musiciansfriend.com audio mixer through my iPad since I can't open my laptop. Obviously, I took a lot of pictures every now and then and you will find it on my social media accounts.

I also made sure that I attended Sunday School and other church services while having a two-week vacation. Since I only have two dresses for the trip, I chose to wear all black for the first Sunday of my travel. It's easy to wear, comfortable and stylish. There's no need to iron it for use so it's easy to pack in my traveling bag.

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

For so many days, I really want to post a blog about dresses but I ended up working only on one dress - the GTW Fab Dress that I bought at The SM Store two months ago. This was the only item that was left during the sale season and it really thrilled me that there's something left for me that time.


Since I gained weight, just a little, I think this dress is not so perfect for me. But, I still like it for Sunday meetings. It's a comfortable and chic item for a modest fashion styling. For my footwear, I already packed some of my favorite shoes, so I just donned the pair of black and white heeled shoes.


Here, I debuted my favorite laptop bag or jacket that I transformed into a handbag just for the sake of having an arm candy. Well, I'm playing with the shades of blue so it's a perfect piece for this look. Obviously, I was in a hurry so I preferred to have a really simple outfit for Sunday.


How are you my dear readers? I'm really happy you dropped by to read my blog. Thank you and good luck.

There's no way I will wear turtleneck for a brunch appointment. But - not today. I've decided to give it a try and it wasn't bad at all. I was able to make it look cool and pretty despite hesitating at first. After all, change is beautiful.
The best way to embrace change is to do the things that you don't want to do. It's as simple as that.



The time has come to embrace my true colors - lavender, purple and hints of pink. These shades bring out the best in me. Since my passion for fashion is noticeable, I'll always remember that inspiring you to create passion projects is my primary goal. 

Here, I donned a pair of black booties that I bought at Payless last year as a birthday gift for myself. I thought it's the best footwear to show off the opulent hues of my striped Baleno turtleneck shirt. Obviously, I have a new hairstyle to match the lilac makeup theme that I chose for this look.

It's not only all black that makes the fashion world so classy. Let's bring in the beauty of white, too. Well, it's both that make us aim for class and comfort at the same time. So for now, let's get back to the basics, shall we?


From basic white t-shirt and black leggings to the ease of adding pop of color to the look, I tried to find simple looks for this styling hobby. You'll see that this Uniqlo white t-shirt is a perfect canvass to the colorful side of a little vest that I bought at Market! Market! Department Store last January. The pairs of heeled shoes did the trick to elevate the style.


To achieve a classy look, I opted for a minimalist take on this one. No pretensions, just pure passion for fashion based on what I already have in my closet.
It's alright to start setting your wardrobe from basic items to make sure that you'll have timeless pieces.
Since the look is so simple, I chose to wear a really red lipstick and a simple makeup. It's not even noticeable.

Here are the things to remember in styling a basic white t-shirt. First, choose a round neck design. It's easy to style and so flattering. Second, focus on contrasting silhouettes to create balance. Here, I teamed both fit t-shirt with a pair of plain black pants because it looks good on me. It's up to you. Just choose the items that you're comfortable wearing everyday. Lastly, you can experiment on different looks such as matching the white t-shirt with shorts, skirts and jeans. As for me, I chose pieces that will contribute to my goal of sharing modest styling ideas.

Karen and Liv of Demure Sweetie | Thank you, Liv for the photo.

I would like to share a very short post for today. It's about my experience at the Mall Tour of Axis B here in the Philippines. The only thing that I want to share is about the opportunity to meet new friends. It was only memorable because of the people I met at that time and the lessons I learned from it.





Obviously, I had fun during the activity. I like the music of Axis B. The Korean boy band showed the audience their talent and it was awesome. For all of you, I'd like also to share my video about this event. I met other bloggers and I'm really looking forward to meet them again.



Lastly, you can check my videos about the event in my YouTube Channel. Have a great day!

Shopping at my favorite second-hand stores is my way of searching for a unique item that I can use once in a while. It's like finding a styling piece that doesn't exist in shopping districts near at home and that's perfect for my favorite pair of Topshop Flint Lace Up Shoes.







There was a time that I searched for a vintage jacket that is not too heavy for me, something that is well-designed but is made of light materials. The fabric must be soft, silky and pretty. Fortunately, I immediately found one last week. In this photo shoot, I try to be more mindful of the retro look by wearing a pink houndstooth skirt and blue undershirt to make way for the black vintage jacket ornamented with tassels sewn to perfection. I finished off the look with a pair of black Flint Topshop shoes. It was just a simple outfit but it really helped me celebrate Valentine's Day in style at Venice GrandCanal Mall in McKinley Hills in Taguig.

These days, speaking and writing the English language well is very essential. It will help you get the best jobs in town. It will help you enrich your career, too. It's essential if you have passion in writing and public speaking. Since it's a universal language, you'll always find it helpful to master speaking and writing English well especially if you're climbing the ladder of success.

There are people who aren't really good in speaking English, but learned to do so because they chose to study it by heart. Personally, it's not my native language so my efforts in studying it is obvious. It's also helpful to find training materials online. However, it's even better to buy a book about speaking and writing the English language well. What do you think?


It's so nice to speak English perfectly, but there are times that it's not really possible. Based on my observation, it's important to speak it always no matter where you are. To make it perfect, constant practice is key. It's also true that developing a habit of watching movies with English language is useful.

For those who only learned such language in school, it's not easy to do. There's a need for more practice speaking English to speak it well. Luckily, we have tons of way to learn to speak English well. There are countless training materials out there. We are just looking for the most effective one, given that we are so busy with a lot of things.

One of the best ways to learn to speak English well is to read and study the best-selling book, Don't Speak Good. Speak Well! The Nosebleed Edition. I have secured a copy of the book and it's really helpful especially in my quest to perfect my English grammar, conversational English skills and pronunciation.

Here are the things that you will love about the book.

1. It's a pocket-size edition. This is a piece of work that will be your companion at work and in attending school activities so you can study the English language. It's not heavy so I can put it in my bag all the time. Such a convenient way to study speaking and writing in English language.

2. It's easy to use. Since the book is so well-written, you'll have a handy guide to bring wherever you may go. It's concise and direct with many examples that you can study. Obviously, you can master the English language through this book. You can always start with the basic strategies.

3. It's complete for your study. The book is composed of 115 pages and three parts. The first part is about Rules of Grammar. From Parts to Speech to Active and Passive Voice, you'll have it all. It's a concise way of having a quick review of English grammar. The second part is Expressions and Conversation Strategies. You'll learn how to show empathy through your words and to listen with interest verbally and non-verbally.

4. It's affordable. The book is not expensive. For less than P600.00 or even lower than that, you'll have a copy of the book. You can't find a handy and affordable piece anywhere that are complete with information needed to learn in speaking English properly.

I'm so happy that I have a copy of this book. My favorite part of the book is the Rules of Grammar. I can't just perfect it so I need to study more of it. I'm a writer so it's really important to make it a habit to be grammar-conscious. Aside from that, I want to get high grades in examinations given during job application.

I'm also inspired with the Sounds of English since I have a regional accent. Every time I speak English, it's always noticeable. Even if I try to speak properly, there are times that you can still hear me speaking with my regional accent. Not cool! So I really need this book.

If you want to know more about the book, you can check their Facebook Page. I've also featured this on my YouTube Channel so you'll feel the passion of learning the art of speaking and writing in English.

I've heard about La Taqueria Amiga Mia Restaurant before and I'm really hoping to try dining in this place. So when I got a chance last week, I didn't hesitate to try their Mexican dishes. I saw their restaurant when I was traveling to stay at Meranti Hotel so I dropped by their place after resting for a while.


I really like their Meat, Cheese & Salsa Quesadilla since it's not too salty and it's perfect with the homemade avocado ice cream that I ordered in the restaurant. Someone so friendly shared with me tales about the restaurant so I really had a good time dining in the said place. He said that Burrito is a bestseller and so I'm planning to try it next time.


I'm so happy that La Taqueria Amiga Mia Restaurant, which is located at Scout Castor Street Near Tomas Morato Quezon City, is so affordable. No wonder it's known to be a Mexican neighborhood dining place that offers huge and budget-friendly dishes.



Obviously, it's just a small restaurant but I was comfortable dining there. The staff showed off top-notch customer service. One of them obliged to take one of my photos even if he's busy preparing for my order. 

All in all, I had a pleasant time at La Taqueria Amiga Mia Restaurant and I only have to pay less than P600.00 for everything that I ordered there.

Named after a tree locally known as Mahogany, Meranti is a boutique hotel that is located in Quezon City, Philippines. It has been designated as a symbol of heritage and nurturing and such is a place - a shelter that's perfect for every hardworking individuals. It is part of Max's Group Inc. so you'll always see it as a well-built staycation destination for every guest who prefers to stay near the metro.

If you remember my second post about this place, it's a more detailed description of the hotel, sharing the top 10 reasons to stay at Meranti Hotel, I had a chance to really prove that what I posted here was truly inspiring.


The types of room at Meranti Hotel are:

53 Standard Room [30 sqm]
5 De Luxe Room [35 sqm]
2 Junior Suite [65 sqm]
1 Presidential Suite [65 sqm]


I'm so lucky they said yes when I asked one of them to take photos of me before going outside to dine at a Mexican Restaurant.

I had a delightful stay at Meranti Hotel. It was so peaceful and very memorable. I had a sumptuous breakfast. The blackened chicken that I ordered for dinner was delectable. I had an opportunity to sleep longer to rest from my day-to-day activities. Obviously, it's still part of work but I made sure that my priority is to unwind and relax.

If you're looking for a place to have a fantastic staycation, you can try staying at Meranti Hotel. The staff really helped me in creating my video for the staycation and took photos of me while staying there. I'm really grateful. That means I experienced a top-notch customer service that's really memorable.
