2018 Hairstyle Trend For Men

IMG_20171213_190024_265.jpg

This 2018, that one word that will describe the hairstyle trend for men is “edgy”. The edgier the better, if your hair is short make it super short and if your hair is long make it super long. It’s all about exaggerating the look. Undercut will be in for short, medium and long hair.

Here are some hair-spiration you can do:

For medium hair, do a sided bangs.

For a long undercut do a man bun or a ponytail.

For short hair, a Neymar Jr. undercut is the best choice.

We Stay Chill

Why is that everytime we do not have a subject for painting or drawing, we will just paint a picture of a tropical location? With the palm trees, the sand and the ocean.

This is the first time I posted my painting online so I just posted a basic painting. Promise, I will post more and much artistic.

Geeky Blue Everyday Style

Sometimes I style myself geeky so I look smart (just kidding). The blue patterned long sleeve partnered with a white short and a black leather shoes fits for everyday style, accessorize it with a geeky shades and your good to go. This style is perfect going to the mall, hanging out with friends or just having a coffee at your favorite coffee shop.

 

Coron: The Best Island in the World

IMG_20171118_093250_185.jpg

Coron is a municipality located in Palawan, Philippines. It comprise of the eastern half of Busuanga Island, all of Coron Island and about 50 other minor islets stretching as far as Tara Island in the north-east and Canipo Island in the south. All these islands are part of the Calamian Archipelago in Northern Palawan.

IMG_20171115_174511_842.jpg

We booked a tour to see for ourselves why is Coron so popular among tourists. We booked a 4 days 3 nights stay in the island courtesy of a travel agency so there’s no hassle in touring.

We arrived in Coron at 8 in the morning and the first leg of our tour will start at 3 PM so we have a lot of time to rest. We stayed at Residencia Hotel, not the biggest hotel but definitely comfortable and accomodating.

At exactly 3PM our tourist van arrived and we will be having a town tour just for us to familiarize the town we will be in the next days.

We went around town, the souvenir shop, St. Augustine Church, we climbed Mt. Tapyas and relaxed in Maquinit Hot Spring.

On the 2nd day is the Coron Island Tour, we went to the famous Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Beach 91 and went snorkelling to places which I forgot the name but there are plenty of corals and there’s a shipwreck.

Now I know why Coron is very famous not just in the Philippines but in the whole world. It has the best beaches I’ve ever been to, it has the clearest waters as in super pure, and the nature trip with its wide forests. I wanna go back here if ever I have a chance because this is one place that I surely love!

What I Love To Do In Pampanga

Deca Wakeboard Park in Lubao is where I always wanted to go in Pampanga.

Wakeboarding is a sport which involves riding a wakeboard over a surface of body of water.

I also love going to Clark! It is a former air force base in the Philippines but now it is redeveloped as the Clark Freeport Zone. There are a lot of restaurants and hotel casino there, such a highly urbanized place.

I guess drinking caffeine drinks in moderation have great benefits and here are some of them:

A cup of brewed coffee as they say represents a contribution of up to 1.8 grams of fiber of the recommended intake of 20-38 grams.
