What does it mean to be a hero for you? For each person, the idea of being a hero can change. But heroism doesn’t always involve having to risk your life for your country. Sometimes, it springs from the simplest forms of kindness and ingenuity! Buti na lang, marami niyan ang mga Pinoy! (Good thing, Filipinos have heaps of that)

This month, as our nation commemorates heroes of all forms, let’s look at 3 Ayos reasons why even regular Pinoys (you, me, anyone!) deserve bragging rights to be called a modern hero:

 1. Filipinos are happy spirits. 

When was the last time you shared a hearty laugh with a friend? Believe it or not, that tender moment may have turned a day around. It truly is more fun in the Philippines where as a nation, we comprise of people who just loves to live from the lighter side of life. When the times get rough, you can expect someone to make you laugh with a joke, an advice, or even a song! Always remember that a smile is powerful. Wear it, feel good with it, and next thing you know, someone else is better because you shared a smile with them.

2. Filipinos are accommodating. 

Ever got hit by the “I just need someone to talk to” bug; where unloading some thoughts and feelings to a confidante is enough to make your feel better? You’re not alone in that. Fortunately, Filipinos are easily open to listen, even welcome you to their homes when you just need to feel like you’re not alone.

3. Filipinos give life a second chance.

Despite the tragedies that hit the country, it is part of the Filipino continue to rise up and try again. Sometimes, this even extends to how they treat the stuff they have lying around the house. Clothes, toys, and hobby items that Pinoys once loved, end up finding a renewed purpose when sold online. 

True enough, more and more Filipinos have embraced the idea of online buy and sell through AyosDito.ph, a free online classifieds website. In fact, during a 12-month period from May 2013 to May 2014, AyosDito.ph soared with a 177% increase in number of ads posted on its platform.
AyosDito.ph, a leading online classifieds portal and key player in driving consumer-to-consumer (C2C) e-commerce in the country, is part of a global network of online classifieds sites in more than 30 countries. Since the start of its operations in 2009, the company has fielded a dedicated staff of ad reviewers to check the legitimacy of ads and thus provide a higher quality of experiences on the site.

The ease and speed of transactions is among the advantages and benefits of online buying and selling, often surpassing the features of traditional commerce. It is even a common experience for an AyosDito seller to post an ad online one day, and have it sold within a day or two--or even within the same day!

With these simple ways of being a hero, you have no excuse to not make each day matter. Be a modern hero today. Smile, listen, and give your pre-loved items a second chance when you post free ads on AyosDito.ph. #

When everyone wasn’t hooked with looms, my sister and I were trying to be expect and artsy with looms. We were on our own. Then, it became mainstream. I don’t feel like doing it anymore. hahaha I know, I should be posting this few months ago but I was too happy. It’s in my drafts for months. That's why I decided, now is the day to post it! Better late then nevah! Hehe Moving forward, I am so thankful for the people, who were patient enough to share their tutorials on youtube.com. I learned a lot and I think my sister learned more from it too because she made more loom bands than everyone else.

The whole set of looms, I bought it for P200 then, I saw it somewhere around the MRT area. It was only P150. OMG! hahaha I fell from the trap of overpricing.

TA-DA! The hooks, the looms, and the locks!

What's inside the box? Plenty of assorted looms, locks, hooks and the magic thing! hahaha

Our finish products!!! =)

So here are the few tutorials I grabbed from youtube that might help you level up your skills in doing the looms. Watch it!

Looms can be made as a charm too, watch it!

Do you like looms? Are you addicted? Let us see your creativity and post it on the comment box with the photo or link. =)

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he didn’t start by trying to improve the candle.
-- Wendy Kobb, America Education Activist

After two months of hiatus, I am slowly coming back. I hope to continue blogging again. The months of hiatus were something to connect with the quote above. Yes, huge changes were coming into my life. First of all, I resigned from my previous job. Then, few days after rendering, I was working again to a new environment. It was different field of work for me. To a web and graphic designer, now I am a software analyst. It took me a lot of courage to do this. I was in doubt at first, if I could take a huge risk. But this quote inspired me to take a deep breath and follow my heart desires. It is been a while since I have thinking and looking for growth and changes with my career path.

Before everything else, one day I felt depressed so I went to the church to pray and to ask for guidance to God. That day, believe it or not, He replied. When I was sitting after my prayer, an old lady went to me. She put a sign of the cross on my forehead and said, “Jesus loves you. You will receive a miracle today.” Then, she left. I really felt the presence of the Lord. I was sobbing badly like a little child lost. Days went by, blessings was pouring unexpectedly. Fast forward to now, changes happened quickly but I am glad I made it. Happiness. No regrets.

the wind made this shot look extra special

Happy hump day! I just can’t believe it is the last week of the month of May. Time flies really really fast. For today, this is the one I wore when the little girl called me princess. Do I look like a princess? Hahaha (Click here for the story)

Map pattern bag from Tmart.com (Click here for my bag review)

Sandals from Rustan's

Floral cropped top from Forever 21 | Maxi-skirt from Forever 21 | Bag from TMart.com | Bangles from H&M

As they said, wearing the same color from head to foot can make you look taller. I am not sure about the last sentence but I love how I mix and match this outfit. I paired the floral cropped top from Forever 21 with a maxi-skirt from Forever 21 too matched it with the bag from TMart.com. I also love my sandals it is very versatile. To add some gold details, I wore a gold bangles from H&M. Accessories can change the look instantly. Do you agree?
