My Philippine Fashion Week Experience

It was on the first week of May when I read in Kryz Uy’s blog the then upcoming Philippine Fashion week. She was having a ticket giveaway contest in her blog which was sponsored by Sony Vaio. Of course I joined the giveaway however I was not the winner. When the  Philipiine Fashion Week came, it was Thursday (May 12,2011) when I heard from my roommate that she will be attending the fashion show the next day at MOA. A friend of hers who is working for her On the Job training (OJT) in Loreal had tickets with her since it’s a privilege for the employees of L’oreal since they were a sponsor for the event.  The next day, I had an engineering math exam 1:30 – 3:00pm that afternoon so I woke up early in the morning. In the morning, my roommate shared to me the good news! Her friend, has extra tickets for the fashion show so I will be able to go with her in MOA. Since I recently acquired my fab Black Schutz, I decided to wear it to the event.

I went to the event with my roommates Ingrid and Weanne. Too bad Rona was nto with us because she was still working for her OJT in Accenture Eastwood that Friday. We were also with Ingrid’s  friend Randz Manucom who got Ingrid to be seated in the Media Partners Seat (Yes, she was not seated with us – too bad but she was in the second row and we were in the fourth).

Special thanks to blogger and photographer Ingrid for asking her friend to give tickets to us for the event! Yehey! Free tickets with super awesome experience tied into it. Of course since it's a fashion show, I had my favorite design and a 2nd favorite design. See the photos below.

MyShoephoria Free Shoe Shopping Experience!

Got this pair of heels without spending a sing coin
My lovely Black Leather High Heeled Schutz

Last May 7, 2011 (Saturday) – I claimed my free pair of Schutz from Adora Greenbelt. I was one of the ten winners of the most liked myshoephoria accounts on As an award to the top ten liked myshoephoria account users , each of us were give a free pair of shoes from the collection of shoes displayed in Adora. We had our MyShoephoria rendezvous at the Lusso Restaurant which was of course the treat of myshoepgoria team. I had an exciting time meeting bloggers like me but of course they have been blogging longer than I do. Also, I am very greatly honored to have met the founder of myshoephoria Miss Ann who was with us in our shoe shopping. See the video below for a sneak peak on our amazing shopping experience.

Honestly speaking , I was really conscious at first when I arrived at the Lusso Restaurant because when I arrived there were all seated there and I was asked the basic questions like what was my name, where do I study, how I came across myshoephoria and the like. It was fun conversing with Miss Ann and to my amazement here college undergraduate degree was B.S. Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) which is my current course in the Ateneo. I felt like the passionate girl inside me ignited with Passion because miss Ann really inspired me that if you dream it, if you desire it, if you really want it – no matter which college course you are in, you can be that girl you want if you work hard and put your heart into it. Since it was my first time to buy classy-sassy shoes I asked for help from miss Ann on how to pick the party shoes that would be suited for me and viola I found my ‘SOLE-mate’.

It sounds better with a boom

Being an engineering student, people usually have the bias that I am a super 'techy' person. I am to some extent but not-so compared to my other engineering friends. It's probably because I only buy what I need and only buy what I really want.

A long-time bucket list of what I want to buy for myself are two things : my very own camera and my very own speakers. I enjoy watching movies a lot with my laptop and even listen to songs while a study or rest with my laptop but for the audio, I only rely on my built-in laptop speaker and my earphones. The built-in speaker is good enough however its just 'good enough.' Using my earphones, on the other hand, is fairly well however it sores my outer ear over time. There is really no escape to my realization that my all-time-dream of having my own speakers is A MUST!

First, Let me show you my laptop - Benq Joybook Lite U121 Eco.

My laptop audio specs are as follows: 

Built-in 2W speaker x2
Built-in Microphone x1
Soundsystem x 2 channels
 (1) Sound Blaster Pro Compatible
 (2) HD Audio
 (3) Noise Suppression & Echo Cancellation supported
 (4) SRS TruSurround HD™

Like what I've said, it's good enough but this is the price you pay for wanting a portable light-weight laptop. My battery life is actually pretty good - maximum of four hours. This is why my laptop is really my buddy especially that my engineering classes requires me to bring around a laptop for projects, programming, and simulation activities. However, a good speaker/s would surely help me with my video-watching and music-listening lifestyle. 

I've recently discovered a really good speakers. It speakers br
ought to you by divoom (see I think my soulmate as a lifestyle speaker is Divoom's "Divoom Divo Speakers." 

Now, why is Divoom Divo my lifestyle soulmate? Well, it's because Divoom Divo offers a stylish combined with great performance. It's featured to have a 2.1 circuit design. Also, its coolest feature is (wait for it: *drum roll*) you can control the volume just by touching. Isn't amazing? Having this amazingly-fashionably-cool speaker, DIvoom Divo is going to make me a techy girl for sure!
