Let's Help

Photos and videos alone can speak for themselves. Here in Manila, I, too, have experienced heavy rain and strong winds on that day, and to think it was only the tail of the storm Haiyan (local name: Yolanda) wreaking havoc. The droplets of rain was huge. You could feel how heavy the volume of water is in every raindrop once it hits your skin. It hurt. The wind was roaring and scary, my umbrella broke that day. In a matter of minutes, the streets gushed out flood. 

That day, I was lucky enough to get home from work safely. But other people weren't. To see those aftermath photos are heart breaking enough. One just can't feign blindness to the situation. (T_T)

There are a lot of ways to help. You can search various charitable organizations if you want to donate items or money. But me, I choose Caritas Manila. They are not as popular as other institutions but I trust them. They have been around for a long time, actively participating in relief operations.

It's horrible when things like this happen , the worst thing is that it is the very nature of the world which no one can know what will happen or not (as could have happened to the storm yolanda that how you name?... )
All my condolences to the families of the victims.... and from henceforth , hence keep looking forward slowly , I'm sure that many countries are sending aid , this morning I saw on the news that both the United States and Spain were the first two countries that have sent aid , and I like Spanish 'm sure my country and its people will not stop to help as much as you can in spite of the situation that exists here .. ^ ^ ..
Many force that can move on! ... much strength to the families of the victims and for all, because reconstruct what and lost , it will be difficult , but together we can.

I like that you donated to an organization that isn't so popular as the others. I think these smaller ones are just as valuable as the others...and honestly, I trust them more :)

Thanks for sharing the link!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
