How to Choose the Perfect Hat for the Shape of Your Face

Posted on

headHats are more than just a garment that is used to protect us from the heat of the sun but it is also now considered as a fashion statement that can be matched perfectly with our outfits. However, just like sunglasses, hats should be chosen perfectly. Not all hats will look good to you and it will vary depending on the shape of your head. We have different shapes of head and they can be classified as oblong, oval, round, triangular, square, diamond and heart shaped. Listed below are some useful ideas I have found online to know which kind of hat is suited for the shape of your face.

Oblong Face – This kind of face is described as long, narrow face with wide hairline and jaw like a rectangle. People with such shape is encouraged to choose a hat style with wide brim and flat crown to establish a great balance.

Round Face – This kind of face is wide and the widest part of it is somewhere around the cheeks. It is said that hats with high crown and small brim will make your face look much slimmer.

Square Shaped Face – Described as face with wide and flat hairline and jaw. The face is similar with width and length. Hats with upturned brims and asymmetrical silhouettes is very ideal for such face.

Heart Face – This head is wider at the top, tapering down and prominent cheekbones. You can compliment it with hats with tilted style.

 Oval Shape – This face is longer with forehead and jaw slightly narrower. Luckily, Oval Shaped face is considered as the most versatile shape as it can go on with any style

The style will also vary depending on the type of occasion or event you are going to attend with. Now that you now the kind of hats that are suited for your face shape, then you can confidently shop hats at wholesale or retail stores without worrying if it will either look good or bad on you. Cheers!

Mom’s Special Day

Posted on

P5110064It was Mother’s Day a week ago and I’m sure you guys made your mom extremely special on that day. My brother and I decided to give my mom a very special treat for mother’s day. After she went to the church, all of us woke up early to prepare our gifts. We gave her a huge bouquet of roses and a cake and greet her a Happy Mother’s Day. A day after, we took her in her favorite salon and give her a nice makeover as well. Mother’s Day is not just about giving gifts. It is not just about the material you give and its value. It is all about your effort and time you offer. As their kids, we are responsible for bringing back the courtesy of all the things they’ve done for us.

This coming May 20, my mom and my dad will be celebrating their 25th anniversary and this is really something special. We’re planning to bring them both in a restaurant and gave them some nice treats and gifts. I found a magnetic bracelet online last night and I think my mom will definitely love this. As for my dad, i think i will buy him a new wallet. Well, we’re hoping to give them a blast!

Chow Pao

Ever tried the Chowking Special Sausage? This special meal offered by Chowking (fast food restaurant)  is being offered in a very affordable price and if you are a frugal guy like me, having this meal is definitely a must but allow me to give my honest review about their so called “Chow Pao”. The meal is basically worth Php30 which is not bad at all but you might wish to have those add on veggies to make it more appetizing. Honestly , Chinese Sausage Special is not that special at all. It’s more like a combination of “Longganisa” and hotdog. Most of my Malaysian friends noted that it doesn’t look like a Chinese Sausage at all. Perhaps, Chowking is trying to change it in a more Filipino way. What i love about this meal is the soft bun with a cute CK logo on top

I went over to their site and discovered that apart from the Chinese Sausage Chow Pao, they are also offering Chunky Beef Chow Pao, and Braised Chicken Chow Pao.

Treats for my Dog

Posted on

Time is really running too fast and it seems like it was just yesterday when a cute little puppy was given to us (February 4, 2014 in particular). Technically, she is two months and seven days old since we took her and named her Chubby. She is really growing too fast and she can’t fit to her old bed before. We had to give her enough space outside so she can play freely.

Chubby is just a mutt or we used to call it as aspins or askals here in my country. Despite of having no breed, these dogs are still trainable. They can make good sports dog due to their good endurance and agility. On top of that, they are less maintaining compare to some breed dogs like shihtzu and more. They are also notable for having good temper which makes them really suitable for kids. Chubby is a playful dog and she always made my day every time i got home from work. She is taking all my stress away and of course, i give her some cool treats in return. I used to bring her some Crazy Dog Train Me treats as a prize for her. It is also interesting to find out that there are some other great treats to be given for our dogs as listed in and it’s nice to see that her all-time fab Crazy Dog Train Me treat is included with the list. I might consider trying out the rest and see how much she will like them.

All you need is to pick the flavor you desired. In this picture we decided to make a cheese flavor. To make these delightful treat, simply prepare one whole box of cheese, all purpose milk, sugar, and vanilla. Simply use a mixer or blender to mix the mashed or cubed cheese and the all purpose milk (you can use evaporated milk too) and sugar. Mix them all well and you might add some food color to make it more cheesy flavor put some salt too (it is a trick used to make your ice candy’s texture more like an ice cream). You can prepare fifty or more ice candy from this recipe. Put them in the fridge and tadah! you can now have an inexpensive yet delightful summer treat.

When Music and Technology Collides

Posted on

downloadDon’t you think that we should be very grateful that we have modern equipment nowadays that make things easier? In music, for example, we have lots of wonderful ways on how to share our masterpieces. We have the internet to share our works publicly and gain more attention and establish a solid fan base instantly. Some websites like YouTube, SoundCloud and more serve as a stepping stone in  most artists today.  We also have several handy apps that can be used using our mobile devices. The alesis io dock for example is a very cool device that allows you to combine all those apps together. This device allows you to use or connect all your audio gear to any of the related iPad Apps. These devices includes microphone, speakers, MIDI controllers and other instruments. It is a very interactive device indeed that most music enthusiasts will enjoy and I am eager to have one too.

My Own Healthy Sandwich

Posted on

One of my New Year’s Resolution this year is to lose some weight and I am pretty serious about it. I am not getting any younger and I better start establishing a healthy life style and I should start it by establishing a healthy diet. In fact, my meal for today is something that is guilt free. I tried making my own healthy salad and surprisingly I find it truly delightful.

It is very simply and easy to prepare. I got a pair of Gardenia’s Wheat bread, lettuce, cucumber, onion, tomato, and a ham and some dressing. I’m trying this no rice diet recently and I think i have to replace it something heavy yet healthy like this sandwich. It is full of fiber-rich food too that’s why it is so healthy for your digestion. Well, this is a good start for me so wish me luck!

Loving my Customized Mugs

Posted on

I used to organized some giveaways before in celebration of my blog’s anniversary not until I got so much busy with my work. Sad to say, my schedules are usually fully occupied and I do not have much time to do such stuff anymore. One of my most favorite prizes are the personalized mugs in which the recipient’s web page are printed to it along with my contest logo and I really find it so fascinating. One of my favorite type of customized mugs are the  so-called Magic mug. This is the type of mug where it changes its color whenever a hot water is placed to it.
 photo collage_zpsf958debd.jpgThe One Piece -inspired mug is my personal cup and as you can see I put my picture alongside with Monkey D Luffy and his crew. Now, I was thinking of organizing another contest soon as this blog will celebrate its 7th year and that sounds really special to me. I wonder if I can still have these mugs as my prizes too. I tried searching for some online shop yesterday and also found some cool customized mugs, bags, and usb here. This is going to be a fun contest indeed and I am crossing my fingers that i can do it successfully like what I did before. Cheers!

Visiting the Binondo Church

Posted on

After visiting the Quiapo Church, we went ahead to Ongpin but before exploring the  China Town, we stopped by first at one of the most notable churches in Manila ~ The Binondo Church. Binondo Church is also known as the Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz and Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish. It is located in the District of Binondo, Manila fronting Plaza San Lorenzo Ruiz. Interestingly this church was founded by Dominican priests in 1596 to serve their Chinese converts to Christianity. Lorenzo Ruiz (the first Filipino saint) was first trained here before he went on a mission in Japan where he is being executed.

The church is currently being renovated outside but upon entering the church, I found the main altar and the entire interior truly fascinating. The original structure has sustained damages during wars and various natural disasters. The current granite church was completed on the same site in 1852 and features an octagonal bell tower which suggests the Chinese culture of the parishioners.
