PHOENIX MEMORIAL CHAPELS AND CENTENNIAL GARDEN

Memorable memorial service experience worth remembering

 

 Often times we don’t talk about it. As long as we can distract ourselves from engaging in a conversation, we would keep away from mentioning anything about it. The truth is, everyone’s fate’s already destined and sealed. We will all go there someday. But is it really that scary not to talk about the end of the road? The ultimate death and the last place for viewing here on Earth? Perhaps Phoenix Memorial Chapels and Centennial Garden will change your perceptions on your final resting place. Phoenix Memorial Chapels and Centennial Garden is a vast property for the dearly departed with mortuary services equipped […]

KUJAKU BOTTLE 500ML (PHP 1099.75) / 600ML (PHP 1299.75)

Kujaku Bottle, a handy vacuum tumbler from Japan

 

 Kujaku in Japanese means ‘peacock’ and as far as English dictionary is concern, what I remembered about the peacock is its colorful feathers that brightly display to show-off the bird’s captivating beauty. Maybe that’s why this bottle, labeled in Japan, by The Peacock Vacuum Bottle Co., Ltd., was called Kujaku. This slendetumblerr shaped vacuum stainless steel compact bottle (available in 500ml and 600ml) is a real catch, especially for people who are on-the-go that they have to bring bottled beverage in their place of work or off to the gym. For me, I am taking this everywhere. I discovered this product through a friend and now […]

TESTING THE EYEGLASSES INDOOR.

A review on how Transitions Signature lenses enhances visual experience

 

 My vision is not 20/20 as it seems. It’s a daily habit for me to wear on a prescription contact lenses each and every morning and to take it off to rest every evening. I also wear prescription eyeglasses on separate occasion whenever I needed to rest my eyes from the contact lenses. Frankly speaking, I envy people who don’t need to wear contacts or eyeglasses. If given a choice for eye laser surgery, I would try that option for me to stop wearing prescription eye-wear. I’ve recently purchased a new pair of eyeglasses and had it installed with adaptive lenses (that changes […]

Here are 3 important things you shouldn’t miss when shopping for backpacks

 

 As a frequent traveler and social media blogger rolled into one, what draws us into acquiring backpacks is the feature itself that can hold a certain amount of essentials to be pack for certain trips plus if the bag can hold our laptop, cameras, smartphones, and iPad. Normally we traveled with 2 Nikon cameras, a D3000 and D3100. Each one equipped with separate lenses for wide and tight framing. We carry either a DELL Inspiron 1440 or an ACER Aspire V5 laptop just in case we need to update our online assignments. We slip our iPad and a couple of […]
