I need to try harder

Saturday, March 31, 2012

I need to try harder. That is to blog more often and not only because I need to post something (read: paid task). I am way past the first trimester and I should have gotten my groove back months ago. Now that I am in my third trimester, I feel a bit more sluggish then before. Uh-oh. There are also back pains and heartburns and sleepless nights which are all expected at this stage. But I certainly have to fight it and manage my time more wisely.

Now that is a challenge.

Watch Ladies

Friday, March 16, 2012

I have friends who collect watches. I remember I used to dream of collecting watches too but I somehow outgrew that. I still enjoy looking at my friends’ collections and some are even classic pieces that they can hand down to their children. They’re truly great pieces of investment.

I am not sure if I still want to wear a watch because almost always, I just check my phone for the time. If I receive one as a present, I won’t say no of course! :) I saw this titanium watch, and I think this is something I can wear all the time, at least for those casual days. So nice, don’t you think so too?

I only got to hear about Magnum from my friends. Some were raving and some were curious about it. That’s when I found out that local celebrities have been talking non-stop about Magnum. I guess it’s some kind of aggressive marketing from Selecta? I got curious too and finally on Sunday, I saw it being sold outside an SM Supermarket. I bought both Classic and Almond variants:


My verdict? The Classic one is just so-so for me. The coating is not too sweet but not something really special. The vanilla ice cream is just okay too. The Almond variant is a hands-down winner, though, and it is something I see myself buying again considering that both variants are priced the same. At P50 each, I find Magnum’s price a bit steep. I would rather buy a pint of ice cream (add a bit more money) and eat more ice cream. KWIM? There is another variant, Chocolate Truffle that I have yet to see. Maybe I will try that one too.
