Ladybag Centrio CDO: For the love of bags

Ladybag Centrio CDO: For the love of bags

Beauty, Business, Cagayan de Oro City, Fashion, Style
What is it with women and their love for bags? Trust me, I’ve heard that question a million times over and to this day, I still don’t have the proper answer. I’m a so-called “late bloomer” in terms of loving fashion, makeup, bags and shoes, you see. I do have several theories, though: the smell and feel of brand new bags cheer a woman’s insides up (like the line in a Friends’ episode: “I think my uterus just skipped a beat!”), bags are little treats for various personal achievements and, let’s face it, women like to “compete” with one another and the bags they carry can say a lot about them, their stories, their goals and their flair for fashion and style. Perhaps my theories are the same ones that Ladybag believes in. Ladybag is the newest store at Centrio Mall Cagayan de Oro that cate...

A couple of things have changed since I last renewed my Philippine passport at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Cagayan de Oro or DFA CDO. Apart from the fact that DFA CDO has now transferred from Limketkai Center to Ayala Centrio Mall, there isn't any need to call their office for an appointment (IT IS NOW REQUIRED TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT...scroll down to find out how) there are now lesser requirements and lesser wait time. Allow me to share with you my experience on how to renew your passport at DFA Centrio CDO. Centrio Mall is located at Corrales Avenue corner CM Recto Avenue.

Mindanaoan was invited to meet the What A Girl Wants (WAGW) CDO Young Ambassadors of Style 2012 last November 24, 2012 during the official launch of the WAGW Centrio Mall branch. It was an invitation I could never decline! Not only did I like the WAGW brand and the people behind it (did you know that popular Filipina fashion blogger Kryz Uy is their creative director?) and the organizers of the event (thank you Jaja and Vanessa!) but one of the style ambassadors was a dear friend and my brother (Bon of One Happy Story Photography) was the event's official photographer :) I was also asked to bring blogger-friends to the event and any event that makes it possible for bloggers to help promote great brands and products always has a plus on my book :) The What A Girl Wants and What A Girl Wa...

Yves Rocher Philippines Centrio CDO – why you should visit them today

Beauty, Business, Consumer, Fashion, Features, Mindanaoan Update, Reviews, Society, Style
Yves Rocher is one of the new stores that opened at Centrio Mall Cagayan de Oro City and truth be told, from the outside, the store looks "sosyal" and the products seem to be very expensive. Lo and behold, that is NOT the case! The expensive products bit, I mean :) Yes, the store does look sparkling clean, attractive and nice but the products are very affordable - so affordable that there are products that are even priced as low as Php 80.00! Yes, you read that right. And did I mention that the products are all botanical (made from plants) and are all dermatologically tested? So did that catch your attention? :) Here are more reasons why you should pay the Yves Rocher store at Centrio CDO a visit like...right now! ;) Read on... Yves Rocher Philippines is named after the sam...

Guess who made quite a stir during the opening of Centrio Mall? No other than Brazilian model Daniel Matsunaga and host/model Rovilson Fernandez! The two gorgeous hunks caused so much stir that the boys later told this Mindanao lifestyle blogger that they had to do an "Amazing Race" kind of dodge and run just to make it through the sea of screaming fans. Daniel Matsunaga and Rovilson Fernandez were in town to do an autograph signing session at Planet Sports, located at the 2nd floor of Centrio Mall. I actually wrote about that event in an earlier blog entry :) Thanks to Planet Sports, I was given the chance to meet and be with these two handsome, charming guys - who apparently happen to be very funny, too! Good thing my blogger-friends were also there to share the fun! Rovilson was v...

Cagayan de Oro City, Contests, Food, Reviews
Just recently, I was commissioned to write a Cagayan de Oro travel piece. I was also asked to include top 5 things to try or eat in CDO. I just had to include Bigby's Restaurant, a homegrown brand, and also had to include one of their bestsellers - the Bigby's Rack-A-Bye Baby Ribs. I personally find the baby ribs at Bigby's tasty, succulent and very tender. So tender that the meat actually falls off the bone! I also like the barbecue sauce/gravy that comes along with the ribs. The Bigby's baby ribs will definitely delight any meat lover. Now you have the chance to try Bigby's Rack-A-Bye Baby Ribs...for FREE! Just join the "Who Ate My Ribs?" mystery game. It's a game launched by Bigby's Restaurant via their official Facebook Page. Join Bigby’s in solving the mystery and get the cha...
