Current Faves and Life Updates

Life Lately is all about embracing challenges and adjusting to the new normal. 
I spend most of my time improving my craft as a Live Streamer - introducing new ways and contents in my stream while learning more from my viewers, too. If you haven't gotten the chance to visit me, I would love to see your username pop in my screen. I am live daily (except Wednesday and Sunday) via the @shopee_ph app. 

Taking the time to share some of my favorite things and updates from our favorite brands.

Boost Energy and Well-Being with Taiwan’s Folding e-Bike

One of the life skills that I wish I learned before the lockdown is riding a bike. 
It has been several months since the COVID-19 outbreak and keeping one’s immune system in top-notch state has become even more important.

The World Health Organization continues to emphasize that adults should maintain moderate daily physical activity to enhance muscular strength and physical wellness. Many doctors also advised doing regular home exercises to help increase immunity and resistance from sickness during the pandemic.

To build awareness about physical health and fitness, Taiwan exported US$2.12 billion worth of sporting goods in 2019, up 9.29% from 2018. It introduced brands like Johnson, Dyaco, and SportsArt Fitness, Inc., and 2020 Taiwan Excellence Awards winners Verde Treadmill, the first-ever treadmill that harnesses 75% of human energy and converts it to electricity; the Cycle Boxer, which combines boxing and pedaling for more fun and challenging workouts, and Climbmill, which helps burn calories while toning the body with every step.

Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5 TB Review

Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5 TB Review Philippine Price

I can count the (few) times that I got broken-hearted. The irony, they were not because of romantic love. One was when one of my external drives got corrupted and I lost all the gazillion (travel) photos I have stored in it. 

I am still not over this heartache. Oftentimes, I wish I could still go back to those memories and look at the old photos and files. 

Space/storage, just like time is essential to me. I always make sure that I manage my space and data storage. I keep a lot of files - from photos, videos, documents, and worksheets - and now that I also create video content, I need more space and storage than ever. 

Seagate is a trusted brand for external drives. I got myself a Seagate Portable Drive 2TB, but countless contents, files, and memories require me to upgrade to higher storage.

Modest Skin Care: Mix & Match Skin Care

Modest Skin Care: Mix & Match Skin Care

Modest. Simple. Humble. Effective. 

I will keep this blog simple and modest just like what the brand, Modestt Skin Care represents - simplicity.

I do not always try new products on my skin (or make a review), but Modest has a good rating and review on Beauty MNL where you can buy the products online. 

Modest is a Hong Kong-based skin care brand which products are formulated in Europe and Japan. It utilizes high quality cosmetic grade, acttive ingredients. I received a package from @modestskincare.ph which includes 6 serums/formulation that I can mix and match depending on my skin condition and problem area.

Huawei nova 7 SE: Review, Fave Features + How to Install Facebook 

Huawei does know how to shake the mobile industry with its competitive phones that are powered with speed and performance. 

The Huawei nova 7 SE 5G is the first 5G mid-range phone in the Philippines. I received my Huawei nova 7 SE 5G before its official release and I got to play (and create) with its really awesome features.
