My Hua Mulan Treasure

I have been eyeing those beautiful combs on display whenever I pass by the Hua Mulan kiosk in SM Megamall. They were so pretty that I made it one of my commitments to save up for it. Thankfully, the day for me to buy one finally came. 

I visited the Hua Mulan SM North Annex branch. I'm glad that it was the store that I chose because the sales assistant was very knowledgeable about their products. She knew what was perfect for my type of hair. She recommended for me to have the wide toothed goat or ox horn comb. All of the designs she gave me were so good, I wanted them all. But alas! I was only able to buy two. 

The sandalwood combs look nice too. However, the sales girl told me that wooden combs are not supposed to be used for wet hair. Of course, water might make the wood brittle. So after some time of choosing, I had to buy this...

The goat horn comb that I bought. PhP600.
Pretty, isn't it? The comb looks so antique and royal! It looks heavy but it is actually very light. Horn is made of Keratin after all. It is translucent, too! That is a plus on its beauty! Here is a closer look...

Since a lot of combs on display were so beautiful, I decided to buy one for a friend, too. This Peach Wood comb is so feminine. The engraving on it is so pretty! I just love the overall look and the details!

You gotta love the girly details! 
Goat horn, ox horn, and wooden combs also claim to have some good benefits in accordance to traditional Chinese medicine. I don't know if its for real. But the reason why I bought these Hua Mulan combs is because they look good! And that is enough! 

These combs are so feminine but I can't help remembering one of my life's theme songs:


You must be swift as the coursing river.
With all the the force of a great typhoon.
With all the strength of a raging fire.
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon.



I love my Hua Mulan combs! It reminds me of being beautiful, without forgetting to be tough as a man!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
