After my great experience with Xiaomi’s Mi3 and 10400 mAh Power Bank, I decided to complete the Mi Family by buying their very own in-ear headphones. And with Mi Philippines’ recent announcement of a Mi Pop-up Store in SM Megamall happening on the last week of October 2014, perhaps this last article in the Family Mi series will help you decide if you should pop up for a visit and drink the Xiaomi Kool Aid.
If you read the first part of this Mi review series, you would know that I have been impressed with the Xiaomi Mi3 – my current daily smartphone.

Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza) and last year, there was Sa Wakas (from Culture Shock Productions and FringeMNL at the PETA Theater). This year, I have two plays in my must-watch list.
So last December 8, the VWCP (Volkswagen Club of the Philippines) hosted the 28th All VW Classic and Custom Car Show. We went to the Quezon City Hall on a cloudy Sunday morning to celebrate our collective love for the iconic Volkswagen.

I usually post Beetle stuff on my other blog, Reklamadora.com, but because Blogger doesn’t really have a gallery feature, I’ve decided to post this here. Continue reading
It’s bad, guys, it’s really bad. The super typhoon hit and practically demolished a third of the country. You can help. We can help in several ways actually. Here are a few of the organizations that are accepting relief goods and cash donations to help those in the hardest hit areas.

It was Luke who pitched this movie. Laya is with her grandparents and for the first time in weeks, we were alone in the house. There was no kid vying for our attention after a hard day’s work, and we didn’t have to rush our dinner! Wow.
