My Pair of Nike Shoes

I finally got myself a brand new pair of Nike shoes! I used to own Sketchers but my eldest daughter harbored it from me. Then, my other sneakers got smaller and well, dilapidated, so I need to buy a new one for myself.

I’m not much of a branded-type of a person, I go for something comfortable to wear. But once in a blue moon, I do indulged in something a bit expensive. I said ‘a bit’ because even though it’s branded, I wanted to buy that’s on sale, hehe.

Lucky for me, it was Wednesday that time hubby and I went to SM CDO and they have these so-called women’s day only. When that happens, they gave either 5-10% off to their women-customers so I grabbed the opportunity when we were there. I forgot the exact amount of these shoes but I believed it was 3k++. The discount helped a lot. Oh, it was hubby who paid for my shoes, hehe.

My next target was to buy Onitsuka tiger brand of shoes. Sadly, their store at Ayala Centrio Mall suddenly closed. I was about to buy that yellow shoes even though it was worth 5k+. I saw that shoes worn by Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and I thought I might feel what she felt while wearing that shoes, haha.

But hey, my Nike was good. It felt like I was floating every time I wear it. So, no complaints from here!

October Halloween

Celebrating Halloween with you this October…

Here’s my daughter in her Halloween look… Actually, I just used an app in my iPhone6 to give my daughter a creepy (?) look. FotoRus is the key using Beauty then Makeup. It’s also the favorite app of my 6 year old daughter coz she doesn’t need to use an actual make-up to color her face. All she need is a phone 😉

So… Have a creepy month!!!

Cosplaying Gogo Tomago

My eldest daughter trying her best to get that Gogo Tomago look :-p

For those not familiar with Gogo, she’s one of the characters from the movie Big Hero 6. Gogo is said to be stoic and strong, tough and athletic, smart, tomboyish, defiant, spunky, loyal, sarcastic, protective, sassy, hot-tempered, opinionated and compassionate.

And her appearance is said to be slender, fair skin, pink lips, short black hair with violet streaks, lavender eye shadow, brown eyes.

Her name may be Gogo but I just learned that her real name is Ethel.

Anyways, did my daughter get the look?—or at least a little of it? I guess she needs to put on a lavender streak to achieve the Gogo Tomago look 😉

Enjoy the best of the Pokemon GO worldwide craze with freenet and PayMaya

Filipinos keenly anticipating the launch of Pokemon GO can now stay updated on the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines and fully enjoy the game when it launches with the help of freenet and PayMaya.

Now a certified worldwide phenomenon, Pokemon GO is a location-based mobile game developed by Niantic Labs in partnership with Nintendo affiliate The Pokemon Company. The mobile game allows players to catch Pokemon or “pocket monsters” as if in real life using the GPS and camera of their smartphones.

The game is currently available in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, and select European countries. It has yet to launch in any Asian country, including Japan where the original Pokemon game originated.

Those who want to stay updated on news about the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines may now download the freenet app on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Through freenet, Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers will be able to read the latest news and social media feeds from the local Pokemon GO community for free and with no data charges.

This is part of freenet’s mission to enable communities such as those who are eager to play Pokemon GO to stay active and participate in various activities and discussions through digital means.

This follows the successful livestreaming of President Rodrigo Duterte’s inauguration and the Gilas Pilipinas FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament games through freenet, which allowed Filipinos to be digitally present in these historic events even if they are not physically able to do so.

Purchase Pokecoins with PayMaya

Meanwhile, once the Pokemon GO app launches in the Philippines, players will be able to fully enjoy the game through in-app purchases with the help of PayMaya, the easiest way to pay online even without a credit card.

Players only have to download the PayMaya app on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, load up their accounts with at least P60 to cover the standard app store verification fee, and link their virtual VISA card to their app store accounts to be able to make in-app purchases for Pokecoins, the in-app currency used inside the Pokemon GO game.

With the help of Pokecoins, players will be able to purchase various items that will help them easily navigate the game, such as Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with, Pokemon eggs that allow them to “hatch” Pokemon, Potions to restore the health of their Pokemon, and Incense and Lure Modules that make it easy to attract wild Pokemon to their immediate vicinity.

In-app purchases are made more convenient with PayMaya as mobile game players can easily load up at any of the over 15,000 PayMaya reloading stations nationwide that include SM Malls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.

Aside from the mobile app, PayMaya customers can also opt to have their own PayMaya physical prepaid card which can be used in brick-and-mortar stores worldwide that accept Visa. A variant also comes with its own beep™ wallet, allowing users to ride the MRT, LRT, some city buses and other beep™-powered transportation for their daily commute, so they can easily explore the city in search of wild Pokemon.

Users who upgrade their PayMaya account can use their PayMaya for peer-to-peer money transfers and ATM withdrawals.
