The long awaited debut of iKon has finally come. iKon as a group experienced a lot of hardships starting in 2013 when group A or now known as WINNER was announced as winners through the reality program Who is Next : Win.

Next was the reality program Mix & Match wherein only 7 out of 9 trainees can debut. But the 3 spots were reserved by Bobby, B.I and Jinhwan. The 6 trainees were from Team B while 3 newbies were added. It was difficult for Team B because one of their strength was their teamwork and adding one member can change everything

They released their debut single last September 15 entitled My Type. While their debut album, Welcome Back was split into two parts.

1st part is Debut Half Album followed by Debut Full Album which will be released on November 2.

Their MVs Rhythm Ta and Airplane are opposites since Rhythm Ta is more iKon with all the hiphop vibe from the song and MV while Airplane makes you melancholic but it makes fans see iKon in a different light that they can also do different genres. Can't wait to see more of iKon.

Being intrigued with Zenfone for months now, when Zenfone invited some bloggers I immediately said yes in a heartbeat. I really wanted to try their phones and was wondering why people rave about them so much. I believe experience is the best teacher. 

ZenFestival Davao is a quarterly event wherein they gather Zenfone users , have fun and games as a way of saying thank you for supporting Zenfone. I think Asus is the only company that does these kind of events.


They introduced their phones like Zenfone 2 Deluxe, Zenfone 2, Zenfone Selfie, Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 and Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0 . 

Asus caters to the needs of different people. Zenfone 2 Deluxe is ideal to people who wants 128GB MLC ROM, that's equal to almost 25 Full HD Movie or 64 heavy mobile games while Zenfone 2 laser is ideal to those people who want good phone that's affordable.  

 
 
I like how active Zenfone community is. Users interact with each other, giving each other advises on how to utilize their phones to their maximum potential. Rather than searching on google about how to, they can just make a Zentalk account and interact with co users nationwide. 

Zenfone create phones that is well rounded. They innovate phones with latest technology without the heavy price tag.

 

Can't help my goofball self from posting this almost unrealistic but funny photo of mine.
 

My personal crush would be the Zen Selfie in Blue. As a selfie or selca addict, it's experiencing heaven on earth. I don't need use Camera 360 anymore. It can make your face smooth so that any kind of blemishes would be erased, make your eyes bigger which is a dream for frustrated ulzzangs like me, the cheeks reduction to make my face slimmer are some of the best features of Zen Selfie. The fact that it has 13mp front camera makes the phone even more beautiful.  

Photos below are taken with Zenfone Selfie.

An addicting game made a hit here in the Philippines to the extent Smart, one of the leading telecommunications company held a competition for Filipino players. Yes I'm talking about the Clash of Clans.

 

Last September 9 at SM Davao Lanang Premier the Mindanao Qualifying Leg gathered players from different cities and provinces to play Clash of Clans.
 

 

I was really intrigued with the game before it became really big. I saw a video advert online and it spiked my interest but I refused to play it because I have addiction tendencies.  

 

The atmosphere was really fun though the players were on beast mode to win so that they can proceed to the finals which will be held at SM Mall of Asia on September 26,2015.And only Top 2 per leg can join the finals.

Exciting activities await the public like cosplay competition, raffle draw, COC tutorial, Celebrity COC match and a lot more!
Visit Smart Clash of Clans 2015 for more details.

BeanLeaf had its first branch in Manila last March 2014, since then branches in Roxas City, Tagaytay, Capiz and Cebu also opened. Some of the branches are company owned while some are franchised. 

"Experience the Difference" is BeanLeaf's tagline wherein they promised to promised their customers a unique taste in every drink they serve.




Luckily for us Davaoenos, Miss Ailea Orpiano was awarded the first franchise here in Mindanao and she decided to open it up at the The Peak, Gaisano Mall. 

BeanLeaf, a Filipino brand coffee shop opened their 1st branch here in Davao City last August 15,2015. I tried some of their best sellers and I'll post my mini review below.

Tuna Kani Sandwich

Frankfurter

Fish & Chips

Among the 3 sausages they served namely Frankfurter, Hungarian and Veal Bratwurst. Personally I'm a fan of Hungarian since it's a bit spicy but their Veal Bratwurst was really good. It's one of Davao Bloggers favourite. 

A good pika pika recommended to us was squid fries and fish and chips. I did not get a chance to taste dquid fries due to public demand or rather bloggers demand so I think it's good and I should taste it next time I visit Bean Leaf.



Mixed Berries and Citrus with Malunggay


For Teas, their Mixed Berries and Citrus with Malunggay Fruit Tea are perfect for those who wants something different. Mixed Berries is perfect for cold days, it tastes like wine so it's a good alternative for those who want wine but doesn't want to get "tipsy". Our favourite was Citrus with Malunggay it's refreshing a must drink during summer. Doesn't taste Malunggay or Moringa at all! Perfect sinker would be Nata de Coco. It has green tea so it's healthy.


Bean Leaf Milk Tea with Espresso

BeanLeaf also sells Milk Tea. Their best sellers are BeanLeaf Milk Tea and Okinawa. Bean Leaf has espresso but it tastes sweeter than Okinawa. It tastes more of an iced coffee than milk tea. Okinawa milk tea is ideal to those people who likes their strong tea taste in their milk tea. Just a warning though, if you add pearls as sinker, Okinawa will taste sweet. 


Nutella Overload

Red Velvet

Trademark drinks like Nutella Overload, Red Velvet and Mocha Hazelnut are available to customers who are not huge fans of coffee based drinks. Nutella Overload, a must try to those who likes chocolate drinks. It has choco chunks each sip. 

Mocha Hazelnut
 


Chocolate Ganache

A cafe can never be a cafe without desserts. Red Velvet, Chocolate Ganache and Carrot Muffin were served. Though I'm a Red Velvet fan,Chocolate Ganache won this time. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate but this one is not too heavy on chocolate and you can't have just one bite. Carrot Muffin's topping has cream cheese and surprisingly it compliments the carrot muffin a lot!

Carrot Muffin

Luhan, a former member of EXO, is back with a new mini album to make fans swoon over his so called manliness. My ultimate bias is Luhan so I'm really looking forward to this album though I was disappointed in learning that they were only 5 songs and 3 of them were the remix version. Hopefully he can sing more ballads. 

I'm not saying he sounds bad with hip hop or other genres its just that his voice suits ballad in my opinion. 

The MV will be released later so for now, enjoy the mini album.

A super simple outfit for the Social Media Day get together by Davao Bloggers last June 21. I always do have at least one denim dress inside my closet ever since when I was a kid. It's a timeless and effortlessly chic piece. It's great for everyday and for semi formal events depending on accessories which you paired it up with. 

Denim blouses and dresses are also ideal during summer because it looks good with lace, white sneakers and brown hue. This one piece dress is from my aunt which she didn't give me but somewhat I forced her to give it to me in exchange of a shirt. It's normal within our family to share or give clothes in exchange of another piece. I didn't know it was from Uniqlo at first. 

I paired it up with my newly purchased necklace which I got from a local mall., Since I don't have white sneakers that fit me well, I opted to pair it with silver sneakers which I believe is a great alternative for white sneakers.

Brows speak louder than words.

They say brows can either make or break a look. Well for me, i guess it's a break. I am a beauty junkie, yes but I have not mastered the art of making brows, alongside with fake lashes and eye shadows.

 

As soon as I became brow conscious if there is such term, I let other people take care of it for me. It's either threading or shaping using a blade. Usually it's the blade method because it's less painful though hair will grow back 1 week after. My first threading experience was at the parlor I am still a customer of , it was for JS Prom so I don't want to have a uni brow so I said yes. Even though they promised the pain was manageable, it was not for me. After the process, my brow had a mini bump and it looked red for 3 days. Yes 3 days. After that it took me years again before I tried threading. One parlor wherein I was suppose to do threading backed out after the lady pulled the second brow hair because my brow was bleeding, though it was minimal, she was scared she'll hurt me so she opt to use the blade again. 



I was a bit hesitant yet at the same time excited about Browhaus . Browhaus opened their first branch in the Philippines last 2008 in Serenda and as of the moment they have 5 branches nationwide with different themes for their store like Chinatown has camping, Greenbelt has submarine while Davao has firing range.  Because they want each store to be a destination.  I hope I can visit their different branches soon. 

Some fellow bloggers said that it's painless but I want to experience it myself for confirmation. I warned the lady that she might see blood and I told her it's normal so don't freak out. She thought I was kidding but she really said it was true. 


I was suppose to try color tweak recommended by Miss Tab since I have colored hair. They use vegetable dye not the regular color dye. But when they removed my brow makeup they can't do it because my brows were still colored. 

I use hair dye btw which is bad but it's better than to have black brows. I have nothing against black brows it's just I feel incomplete with black browsa and I find it weird looking at my photos with black brows. 



My experience with Browhaus is really good. Among all the threading I have tried it's close to painless but since my skin is sensitive and my pain tolerance is below sea level, I can still feel some pain but nothing I can't handle.

Their brow architects are skilled and they undergo training for 2-3 months and their certification is valid only for 1 year. Not all staff have the same skill. 



They also are trained to know which brow suits you better according to your face shape, I told her I want straight eyebrows and she told me that she'll put a little arch but not too much since I have a scar on the left eyebrow so that some of my hair can cover it up. Don't hesitate to ask and consider what you want for your brows since it's your brows and you can meet halfway. 


I never knew that the angle of your arms and they way you bend is important to minimize the pain of threading. Also they use cotton thread not the regular thread which most parlors use. 

They have wide array of services and their in house treatment is the brow resurrection. It's more expensive than regular brow tattoo considering its only semi permanent but it doesn't turn your brows blue-ish which is the common problem to those who have tattoo brows. For 42,000, you can have natural looking brows for at least a year with complementary retouch under 3 months. It actually depends on how you take care of it. Tune up or retouch is 7,000 per session. 


Browhaus also offers eyelash services like eyelash extension and eyelash curl. They have a promo as of the moment that 1st time customers can avail 50% off eyebrow and eyelash services. Promo is until the year ends so better visit Browhaus and ask for further information. They also offer packages wherein you can save money by buying their services in a bulk, like 10 eyebrow threading and the best part is that you and your friends can use it. It's transferable so more people can enjoy their services. Just ask the Browhaus personnel on how to avail their packages.
