Experience Nokia Lumia at Abenson

Looking for a new and cool phone?  Head out to the nearest Abenson branch and get your hands on the awesome Nokia Lumia phones!  You can choose from 3 cool versions...  Just make sure to test them all to see which one is best suited to cater to your needs.
I dropped by the Abenson store at the New Glorietta mall and spent some time testing out the phones.  I immediately loved the how the phones came in colorful cases!  Interestingly, the Nokia Lumia 620 comes in dual-shot shells - meaning you can layer 2 colors of your choice for the case.  Very cool :)
The Nokia Lumia 620 is the most compact in this series.  Definitely perfect for folks who love smaller phones without compromising on the specifications.  I am particularly intrigued with the Cinemagraph feature.  This allows you to add moving images to your still photos!  I can suddenly imagine making those fun family videos on the phone and not the desktop computer!
Next up is the Nokia Lumia 820.  I think this is my favorite from the bunch :)  I love the camera and the size!  Also love the Smart Shoot feature that allows you take multiple photos and merge them into one.  That way you always get that perfect photo.  I'd like to test this feature on my cats.  It would be nice to have that perfect photo of them both looking at the camera (without the use of photoshop too! LOL).
 Nice big screen for surfing the internet, blogging and sending out e-mail! 
The Nokia Lumia 920 is the most innovative and high tech among the three.  In fact, it even won the Reader's Choice Smartphone of the Year in the 2012 Engadget Awards!  Pretty awesome, huh?  It has an amazing HD display and has optical image stabilizer which means goodbye blurry photos!

So, have you chosen your Lumia phone? :)  Abenson offers 0% installment for 12 months!  You can get the Lumia 620 at P 1,057.90/mo, Lumia 820 at P1749.16/mo. Anyway, here are some interesting facts about the phones and of course, Abenson.

Blast from the past

My friend sent me this very cute photo of two cats that reminded him of Nugget and Kumo...  In an alternate universe that is :D
I almost died.  They are both so cute!
Kumo was already 3 months old when we adopted him so he wasn't as tiny as the orange kitten in the first pic.  Here's one of the first photos of him finally getting along with big brother Nugget.  Sigh!  Still so tiny :,)

Start the year right with

2013 is off to a good start for us.  We've been moving more, eating healthier and making more earth friendly decisions.  I remember a time when it was a challenge to look for eco and organic products but with everything is just a click away!
Here are 10 of my must haves from Sulit :)
Coconut sugar is the healthiest option compared to other sugars.  It also has a low glycemic index making it perfect for those concerned about their blood sugar.  

I have never heard of coconut flour until recently when I came across a recipe for low carb pancake.  This flour is not available in the groceries I visit so it's a blessing that it is listed on!

Chia seeds
Chia seeds are really tiny but they pack in a lot of fiber and Omega 3!

Hurom Slow Juicer
I've always wanted a juicer that can efficiently juice leafy vegetables like malunggay and spinach.  I think the Hurom Slow juicer will definitely do that for me :)  Hope to have this really soon!

Vegetable seeds
I'd love to try sprouting my own alfalfa at home

Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey has antibacterial properties that is great for everyday maintenance.

Yoga Mat
This high quality mat is made from eco-certified PVC material and is manufactured emissions free!  It's non slip too :) Aside from mats there are a lot of yoga gear, shorts, shirts and plus size swimsuits for women here
Pyrex glass storage containers
I've replaced all our plastic containers with glass.  It would be nice to add more to the set.
Visions cookware
Along with plastic we have also stopped using teflon pans.  These glass cooking pots are made with very strong glass that can endure both heat and cold.

Tea tree is a natural antibacterial and antifungal essential oil.  Just add a few drops to water and you have a powerful yet eco friendly all around cleaner.

What about you, what are your 10 must haves from  Btw, don't forget to follow them on twitter and like on facebook.  Have an awesome 2013, folks! :)

Senior Nuggie

Nuggie is turning 12 this year.  He still acts the same to me but I know that I should be paying more attention to his special needs.
I never really noticed it before but his face suddenly looks older to me.  His eyes are a bit lighter too.  I wonder if he is having a hard time seeing things...  Too bad cats don't have contacts or eyeglasses.
I'm sure Nug will look super cute with a pair of retro eyewear from  Haha, just kidding :)
I really hope that we will be able to provide him with the proper care that he needs in the years to come.  We love you so much, Nuggie :)

Hello, Baguio!

I always look forward to our yearly trip to Baguio.  Erman's dad is a PMA alum so we always tag along for the homecoming weekend.
Our favorite way to start the day!
I just realized that this is my 6th PMA weekend!  And every year Erman and I spend our Saturday morning at our favorite place, Cafe by the Ruins.  I also love their organic market!  I was able to buy a few punnets of cherry tomatoes and strawberries.   Yay!  No cape gooseberry this time though.
brewed coffee and a cute shaped sweetener
Happy and festive!
Really excited to check out Ketchup: The food community later.   The food community is just across Wright Park. Maybe I'll rent a horse and go riding? Happy weekend folks! :)

Valentine's cards that did not make the cut

Found these funny photos hidden in my files while I was going through my hard drive.  Not sure how long I've kept these... Must have been over 5 years?  I can't even remember where I got these and who drew them but LOL.  Soooo funny.  Especially after my last post where I talked about how much thought and care goes into each Hallmark card :D  Of course these are meant to be gag cards and not something to be taken seriously.  But of course if I had a reliable business card printer I'd be printing all of these out. Haha.  Happy Valentine's day folks!

"Even cupid forgot about you"
"Looks like love is in the air"
"For everyone... except you.  Better luck next year..."
"Someone...  Somewhere...  Thinks you're special"
"Too bad the other 6,592,700,559 people think you're a tool"
Nugget does not approve!  LOL :P

Hearts Day

Do you celebrate Valentine's day?  With just 2 days left till the big day, I'm sure a lot of V-day observing folks are scrambling to get last minute gifts, reservations etc.  Personally, I am not really into celebrating V-day...  But I do love all the heart shaped food in the stores :D 
Please be mine, heart shaped donut!

When I was working at Hallmark, Valentine's season was always early.  It was important to plan, print and screen the cards, wrappers, gift bags several months ahead to make sure that they'd be at the stores in time.  My favorite product would be the cards with the tiny gift included :D  It's pretty cool when I think of how much work goes into each product.  Happy Valentines day, folks!
