I just love it when Forever21 KR offers the buy1take1 promo. The best part about it is that  you can only get those things that are in the SALE category or those who have been mark down to 50% and even to 80% less. That is what I call as a real steal.

I don’t live in Korea but there is a store in FB that offers the opportunity to buy things from Korean stores and online stores,pack the goodies and ship it to the Philippines plus the fees are really  affordable.

Last August, they had the buy1take1 promo and I bought these two things at P 1145 pesos plus shipping fee[200 pesos]

.At the same time, I also got a two toned Dress for 350 since I get to share the buy1take1 with a friend.

I received them two weeks ago and I’m very happy.

Moreover, Forever21 Kr once again offered the buy1take1 sale promo for the fall season. I told my friends about it and they were really excited shopping and we decided to order together so we can share the shipping fees. Hahaha.

My September F21 Haul is expected to arrive on the 1st week of October. I decided to get a wooden platform heels while I shared the free one to my younger sister who bought a  shoes/heels that she can wear to school[that is something that I am not sure of since most of her classes are in the 5th floor and her school does not have any elevator /escalator.]

Check them out:

I got the two shoes for P1245 + a small amount of shipping. I share the box with three other friends so we have to divide the shipping fees.

My sister, which is located in Cebu, and her friends also ordered from the site through me. She spent around P1450.00 + shipping fees from Mla to Cebu, where she shared the fees with her two office mates, for the items below:

I’m really happy with my forever21 hauls and I am hoping for another buy1take1.


Carmen Resort is a must-visit place. I love the river and the water is too cold. For 20 pesos(entrance fee), you can enjoy the pool, river and can even marvel and wander around the place. The place is  kinda far but accessible, just  expect an hour of travel from Mintal, Davao City.

My friends and I decided to go there last August 17,2012 to celebrate my friend’s 21st birthday. Fun to the max.

How to Get There:

If you are from Downtown Area(Davao City), you can ride a jeepney/L3/bus en route to Calinan,just prepare around 35 pesos/person as a fare. Upon reaching Calinan Proper, you can hire a motorcycle for 100 pesos(good for 2,one-way) to take you to Carmen Resort, Calinan.

The entrance fee of the resort is 20.00 and you can go directly down to the cottages near the  pool but of course you have to go through the 300 steps(more or less) concrete stairs … going down is fun..the trip all the way up id the real challenge..just consider it as an exercise….

A Penny For My Thoughts

Two Days Ago, I celebrated my 23rd Birthday and many things came into my mind as I was trying to comprehend myself. There are so many pressing issues in my life right now that I need to sort in order for me to clear my mind and see things differently.  Currently, I am still stuck at school ’cause I am not yet done with my thesis and that somewhat irks my parents. I know that they want me to find a direction about my life and do the things that I love but they would only allow me once I get to finish my education. It seems that I lack the motivation to keep on doing my thesis. Part of me wanted to leave school and explore the world but I kinda feel guilty cause my parents wanted me to finish schooling even just for them. At the same time, part of me wanted to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a lawyer and only a college degree can lead me to that.

I don’t know but I always have this kind of issue cause I’m too preoccupied with so many things right now that hinder me to finish even writing my thesis proposal.  I wanted to live life to the fullest and It seems that my unfinished thesis is the only one that blocking me to do that. This is quite difficult for me cause I know what are the things that I’m missing but I could not find any time or even exert an effort to really start writing or even researching about it. I don’t know..something is wrong about me.. *sigh*
