Definitely Japan. Definitely Kojie.san

Mar 21, 2014

I am 37 years old,  and while I am not ashamed of my age, I do not want to look like all of my 37 years! I am as vain as the next woman, and I love to be complimented for how young I look, how radiant my face looks and how I am glowing as if I am in love.  A woman must be all that: confident in her age, yet aware that it takes effort to look effortlessly beautiful.  For all that, I use only the original kojic acid soap: Kojie.san.

The Japanese people are a proud race and they value honor.  They would rather kill themselves than lose their dignity.  And this pride is evident in everything they do: from their technology, from how they worked together and picked up their lives after that huge tsunami, and most especially from their products. And Kojie.san is Definitely Japan, which makes it a very high quality product that I use, and I know I can trust.

So when it comes to skin care, why is it important to use only the original kojic acid soap? Well, because I want to look good, be fair and ,radiant and white and glowing,  without having to worry about the side effects of the soap I am using! There are lots of whitening soaps out there, but I will never take a chance when it comes to my face.  I trust only Kojie.san because:
  • Kojie.san is the first kojic acid soap to be commercially available in the Philippine market
  • Kojie.san has a micro peeling effect, which makes it a potent whitening product.
  • It does not contain any harmful chemicals.
  • It contains antioxidants and 100% all natural ingredients.

Yep, I am a proud Kojie.san user, and because of that, I am prettier than you! #confidence #beauty

10 Things That I Want To Tell My 19 Year Old Self

Mar 11, 2014

Ten things that I want to tell my 19-year old self:

  1. If you can help it, don't get married right away. Make sure to finish your studies and then look for a nice job that you will love and enjoy. If you have a partner, make sure he finishes his degree too. Don't take no for an answer on that score because it will get harder for him and for your family if he doesn't. But if you can't help it, then get married.  It won't be easy, and at times it could even be so hard you would want to quit, but it will always be worth it.
  2. Get 2 years of work experience, then go back to school right away.  It gets a little harder to go back to studying when you are a little older and a wife, a mother, an employee and a student.  There are so many distractions that your focus tends to be a little off.  If you want to study, and I know you do because I am doing it right now, do it right away!
  3.  Travel. Going places is a great way to learn and appreciate life.  It doesn't always have to be a grand vacation and budget travel is okay and is even fun, so go and visit places you have never been to before. And do things that you have never done before. It will make you a better person, more appreciative of what is around you.
  4. Take good care of your body. Its the only one you've got.  Exercise and eat properly, and maintain a normal weight so you wont have to worry about hypertension, diabetes and the likes.  And it makes dressing up a lot easier too!
  5. Read, read as much as you can.  It is never a waste of time to sit quietly in a corner and travel in faraway places with just one book.  
  6. Learn to say " I Love You" and "I'm Sorry."  It doesn't cost anything and the people around you will always know how much they mean to you.
  7. Strive to be the better person always.  You don't always have to win, you don't always have to be right.  But you must always be kind.
  8. Love your mother with all your heart. For all her faults, she is your biggest and truest supporter.  Don't be shy in telling her you love her.
  9. Let go of your insecurities.  They will just weight you down.  Have a little more faith in yourself.  You are a strong person.
  10.  Try to enjoy life more. Just because you are enjoying yourself doesn't mean you are being irresponsible. Besides, what is the point of all this if you do not enjoy it?

When you think of home, you think of the people you love and the food you share together. And for us, this sopas is one of the comfort food that we all love.  It is such an easy dish to cook, but it is always such a big hit in my family.  I am just so happy that such simple things can bring much joy to my family! 

Travel is Love

Mar 8, 2014

If you ask me what I would rather be doing this very moment, I would say I would be traveling! I would be in another country looking at their wondrous culture, or in some island of the Philippines where I would either be swimming (more like wading) in a beach or climbing a mountain!  I would be experiencing new things, food and adventure. And I am thankful that I am able to do that now.  I know that some people do not understand how I would rather do this than say, buy new gadgets, but this is my vice.  To me, this is love.  It is something that I enjoy doing and I would continue to do until I am old.  I am lucky to have my family love traveling as much as I do even though we do not always have the means to.  I am thankful to my husband and superfriends who are likeminded, and I know that we will be going places together, both literally and figuratively!

And my advise to you, do it now! So that when you are old, you have lots of stories and memories to tell your grandkids! Been there, done that, as they say!

Friday Letters

Mar 7, 2014

Dear Lent, For this year, I will try to do something special.  I will avoid meat and chips.  Hope I can do this as a form of penance.  Dear Exercise, I wish running makes one slim right away and the fats just disappear after a 5km run! But why are you oh-so-difficult? Dear Thesis, Why are you so difficult? It is as if my mind is programmed to resist working on you and would rather work on all or any other stuff just to avoid you! Why am I doing this again? Huwaaaaaa!!! Dear Work, I am happy that I am busy because I get to learn some things, but why so many all of a sudden? Dear Coffee, Thank you for keeping me sane!  Dear March, I am oh-so-ready for you to end!!!
