Acer Philippines and Samsonite The "#CarryOn" Back-to-School Promo

Acer Philippines join forces with Samsonite for a very timely promo that you shouldn't miss. Recently launched and was held last May  at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall.

Acer Philippines and Samsonite The "#CarryOn" Back-to-School Promo

This 2018, Acer Philippines’ back-to-school promo is specially made for millennials. Seeing the world’s biggest generation’s constant thirst for adventure and new experiences, the tech giant uses traveling as a motivation to inspire the youth to do well, whether in school or in their professions. Aptly called “#CarryOn”, the Promo encourages the youth to power through the hurdles they encounter in pursuit of their dreams and goals.

“If there’s one thing we’ve learned about millennials, it’s that they are very passionate individuals who are unstoppable if they are truly motivated,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Acer Philippines’ Sales and Marketing Director. “Travel is, without a doubt, one of their strongest motivations. This is why we’ve partnered with Samsonite, a household name when it comes to travelling, to help us propel this cause forward. Hand in hand, we are hopeful that we will be able to not only motivate our millennials, but also reward them for their hard work by fueling their wanderlust.”

The affair also saw the debut of the #CarryOn video, which shows what the back-to-school campaign is all about. Directed by Ms. Irene Villamor, known for her works in Camp Sawi and Meet Me In St. Gallen, the film depicts how the youth turn to traveling as a way to cope and re-energize in the face of the stresses of their daily lives. The full video may be seen in the Acer Facebook Page. 

“Travel inspires a different form of education – it makes you learn about new environments, exposes you to different cultures, and gives you a clearer view of the world,” shares Ciely Buenviaje, Country Head of Samsonite Philippines. “Samsonite could not be happier to be partnering with Acer in promoting such a holistic growth for the millennial generation.”

Ricci n' Chloe Summer Ready with Barbie

Ricci and Chloe, just like me, loves swimming. 
Our trips to the swimming pools and the beaches are a super hit for the FamBam.
We are all in our happiest! 

 This is Charles enjoying our trip to Adventure Beach Water Park in Subic

 DaddyO and Charles building sand castles at Camayan Beach Resort

And, of course, Ricci and Chloe creating their sand castles too.

Our recent trip to the pool turned into an OOTD sesh for my girls. It was actually my Birthday Staycation, a surprise arranged by DaddyO at Crimson Hotel in Alabang. 

Sadly the hotel's pool was under renovation. When my girls were about to cry DaddyO said there's an alternative, The Palms Country Club that Crimson Hotel partnered into.

I've been there before for an event that I just covered, and the place seems nice so I get a little excited. But to my surprise, it was a bit crowded. Maybe because it is a weekend and or there are so many guests from Crimson Hotel.

Not to spoil the fun, my girls are so kilig receiving a package from Barbie making this swimming trip extra special. So this is the part that this became an OOTD sesh for my girls. They can't help but show how pretty their swimwears are.

Super thanks to Barbie Philippines for sending this cutesy Barbie Swimwear sets making my girls summer more fab and Barbierrificly awesome!

Our little lady Ricci loves her Barbie Swimwear for the ruffled top and that it is being tied up.
She's also loving the shimmering stars printed in it.

Chloe loves her strappy top and prints. 
And what made her love this set more is the color combination. She loves purple and pink!!! 

Adorable Barbie Sunnies too!!! 

and The Super Soft Barbie Beach Towel 

Be Summer Ready with Barbie by getting this fab Barbie swimwears and accessories too.

Available at the leading Departments Stores and select Toy Kingdom and Toys R Us stores.


We enjoyed our li'l staycation! 

Sometimes, we really need to have a break, slow down for a little while, enjoy the little things, and the little kids for sooner or later getting a hold of them would not be such an easy task anymore. 

Go spend time with them as much as you can!

The Promate Vogue-3 is The Fashionably-Enchanting and Wearable Earphone There Is.

This pretty stylish, looking so cute loopy bracelet I was wearing for a couple of weeks now is more than just an accessory. It is an earphone. Oh yes, it is!

Some of you my dear readers already know that I am not a fan of and in-ear devices/headphones. I don't like the achy, fuzzy, sweaty, uncomfy feeling earphones are giving me. That is the main reason why I always for go for over-the-ear headphones, The bigger the better!

A couple of weeks ago, I received this package from Promate through a friend. I was a bit excited cause I've been hearing good reviews about the brand. Promate is a digital lifestyle and electronic accessory brand dedicated to delivering the specialized and original accessories for Smartphones, Tablets, and Laptops. Incorporated in the year 2008 in Dubai, Promate Technologies has grown to become one of the largest & most awarded provider of accessories for portable devices and digital media. Globally, the brand has a huge market presence in Europe,  Middle East, South America, Asia, Australia & South Africa.

The moment I've learned that it is an earphone, my excitement fades. "What am I going to do with an earphone, sasakit namaman tenga ko nyan eh" that I said to myself at baka kutusan ako ng friend. you know who you are. Then I started checking out the box. 

The packaging is really good. With safety-seals in all possible openings. Yes, not just the top opening part, seals are also found at the bottom of the box. A Major Check for Tamper-proofing! You'll know you are getting a fresh item every time.

Now, look! Ain't that lovely?

After seeing that L.O.V.E. blocks thingy, I loved it already! With that dangling hearty-hearts charms, I fell for it even more. Yasss! am a sucker for charms and what made this product seal the deal? It is RED!!! My Favorite Color.

At this point, I'm very ok with this item. like "Yeah, I can use this, I can give this a try" But the friend I am telling you about mentioned that this earphone turns into a wristband/bracelet. I was like "Whuttt?" and that friend knows that I wanna see it transform, then moments after... 


It magically turned into a charming a bracelet.
Kidding aside, that earphone I was telling you about can turn into a wearable bracelet! Awesome!!!

Now the wondering part kicks in. 
What will happen to the earphones? 
How will I manage to keep the cables in place? 
Is it waterproof, or even sweat-proof?
Can I even use or wear this knowing my standards for an earphone is way up high?
It's for me to know and for you guys to find out. 

For the TechieBites 

Driver: 14.2mm | Impedance: 32Ω | Sensitivity: 102±3dB |Frequency Response: 20Hz-20KHz
Rated Input Power: 5mW | Maximum Input Power: 10mW | Cable Length: 120cm

The Enchantment Continues...
I started using the earphone and to my surprise, it felt okay and I kinda like its design. What my initial reaction was...

"Parang shinoot mo lang sya, pinatong, nilagay, GANERN. Walang pilitang nagyayare unlike sa mga earphone ko before na kailangang ipasok maige which causes my maliit na ear to ache. Plus the sound quality? Super!!!"

5 things I Like About the Promate Vogue-3

Now Nu Skin customers can be confident that their skin is clean, radiant and always ready for the perfect selfie or spontaneous photo moment.

Skin Renewal
Purified Skin
Pore Minimizer
Smoother Skin
