Learning skincare tips from Koreans

Friday, February 27, 2015 - 02:51 p.m.

MY LOVE and interest in the Korean culture is no big secret. I have long been interested in their language, their history, and their art from even before the first KPOP hit, Wonder Girls' Nobody, paved the way for other groups and singers to have popularity in the Philippines. And it is exactly because of that addiction to Korean culture that my parents allowed me to visit the country not just once, but twice, in 2014.

Favorite Oscars beauty looks

Thursday, February 26, 2015 - 09:36 p.m.

THE Academy Awards ceremony is also known as Hollywood’s biggest night. Unlike less formal awarding events, the Oscars require the stars to dress to the nines. It is always nice not to look like you’re trying too hard, but in my opinion, some of the stars’ hair and makeup teams go a little too far with the “undone” look, and some of them don’t look red-carpet appropriate in some events. The Oscars, though, didn’t disappoint, and the movie stars actually looked like movie stars.

OUT of all the colors, none is more vivacious than red. There’s just something appealing about the color. Apart from it being the color of passion and love, it breathes seduction and sophistication. It is the most luscious shade there is as well as the most enticing.

When it comes to beauty and fashion, a shade of red brings a whole new life to the look. When worn right, it can flatter an ensemble totally bringing out the inner vixen. Be it a shade of red lipstick, a red tote or heels, it’s a showstopper.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 - 02:30 p.m.

THE 87th Academy Awards night, or the Oscars, was held a few days ago. For Hollywood (and by extension, for Pinoys), the glitzy powerhouse affair marks the highlight of the movie awards season and points the masses towards what film to watch of all the thousands produced from the previous year.

Leading up to this year’s edition of the Oscars, Richard Linklater’s opus Boyhood was the odds-on favorite to win as it had won most previous awards: the Golden Globe, the BAFTA (British equivalent of the Oscars), the Independent Sprit, the National Film Critics Award and much more.

Southern musings

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 - 07:32 p.m.

Sometimes, humans are so lost in the drudgery of reality that, in the progression of hypnosis, living has become a bad habit.

AS IF touching the heaven's cheeks, Angkor Wat's tallest stupa evoke a sense of serenity and harmony. You get the sense that this fabled land had been cradled and infinitely blessed by the gods.
