Althea Korea's Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist Review

Althea Korea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist
I once read that the scent is the strongest memory that we human beings have. Even popular French fashion designer Coco Chanel agrees and once said that a woman's perfume is an unforgettable ultimate accessory. That being said, people may actually forget how you look but will always remember you for your scent. 

I love to stay fresh and smell good throughout the day. I don't want to smell awful in public so I try to use various perfumes and body spray to prevent this. I make sure to always have it in my bag so that I can spritz anytime whenever and wherever I feel the need to. But you know, sometimes you can't help but smell like sweat especially if you've been in the outdoors for so long. If you live in a tropical country like me, extreme sweating is unavoidable. 

If you're a perfume fan like me, you probably have always wondered what the differences between body mist and perfume are, right? Body mist has a much lighter scent than perfumes. It's meant to be just as it is supposed to be--not something heavy that weighs you down, instead it's meant to be light and airy. Body mist is not concentrated at all so it just sticks to your skin for a little while but needs reapplying later on. 

I have been lucky enough to be given another exciting product to review from Althea Korea. Known as an online shop that sells authentic Korean beauty and skin products, Althea Korea is the best site if you're looking for legit Kbeauty products. Anyway, the product that was sent for me to review is called Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist, a collaboration between Althea Korea and top Indonesian singer and celebrity Titi Kamal. Titi Kamal rose to fame after bagging the role in Ada Apa Dengan Cinta (What's Up with Love?), considered one of Indonesia's best films in the 2000s. 

Indonesian singer and movie star Titi Kamal for Althea Korea
It was the first time for Althea Korea to produce a body mist. A bottle of elegant sweetness, Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is made up of orange, peach and rose scents as it base. I love the fact that it is skin-friendly. Unlike other body mists I've had used before, this one didn't give a sting nor it can cause skin irritation. The fragrance is very nice and smells fresh, exactly just the way I like it. Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist's bottle is designed very well. It's helpful for we can carry it in our bags very easily. The spray is also so convenient and easy to use. I also love the fact that the fragrance is suitable for all kinds of people.

Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist lingers on my body well although I highly recommend that you also spray this on your clothes for more lasting scent. Wrists aren't always the best spot for fragrance to lasts long as metal jewelry can often alter the smell of a fragrance. It's better for you to spray on top of your arms or elbows corner, roll down your sleeves and wear it all day. That will allow the fragrance to come out through the day. 

I'm really happy with the results of this product. I'm really satisfied. I went out with my friends while wearing the said body mist and a friend complimented me on the fragrance I used. You will certainly fall in love with Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist. 


Lavishly splash or lightly spritz Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist, either way you'll fall in love with this mist! They carefully crafted not just the bottle and sophisticated pump delivers coverage while the mist alone nourishes skin for the lightest, most refreshing way to fragrance! A petal-perfect blend of rose, oranges and peach. 

It has Damask rose water which effectively keeps the skin hydrated as it also gives a gentle fragrance. It also includes orange flower extract that refreshes the senses and elder flower extract the cools and soothes the skin.

The pretty decent spray dispenser to apply the mist gives an even application and quickly covers most of the areas of the body in which you apply the mist into. As it comes in a plastic bottle, it can be easily carried around. 

I have always loved using body mists and this one has become an instant favorite as the smell isn't too overwhelming or powerful. It smells so sweet yet so floral and fresh all at the same time. I love floral and fruity fragrances which notes linger for hours. You don't need to spray more than five times to get completely drenched in this beautiful fragrance. 

As it is a body mist spray and not a perfume, it stays for much lesser time compared to EDT or EDP. But as it is, I always have it on my bag to touch up whenever I am on the go. What I love most about Althea Korea's Stay Fresh Body Sparkling mist is that it does not leave any stain on clothing unlike EDPs. It stays for a maximum of an hour when applied on body and a little longer when applied on garments. 

Overall, I really enjoyed using Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist and would definitely recommend them to friends and buy another one as soon as I finish my first bottle. 

Pros of Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist:


  • Good quantity.
  • Beautiful packaging.
  • Smells so nice.
  • Does not leave stain

Cons of Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist:


The smell doesn't last longer than an hour (but then it's a mist, not a perfume)

Interested? You can get  20% OFF + Free shipping by using the code TITISPECIAL. Titi Kamal x Althea's Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is available in selected countries only. 

Sold at Php450 per bottle for 100mL, Althea x Titi Kamal Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is such a good buy.

Althea Korea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser Review: Is it worth spending your money on?

Althea Korea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser
In a world filled with endless sponsored ads on your social media feeds as well as an ever expanding sea of online influencers and brand ambassadors, it can get pretty confusing to find a beauty product that actually does what it says and what you want it to do. So each time I find a product that I can consider a goldmine, such as Althea Korea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser. I got thrilled to use it. As an Althea Angel, I'm so grateful to be given the chance to review one of their latest products called Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser. 

While it may be true that there are lot of genuinely amazing beauty products out there. But then there's also a whole lot of beauty products that offers nothing but empty promises. And sadly, some of the shams are pretty expensive, yet it doesn't necessarily guarantee you a good result which could lead you to throwing money down the toilet.

Chef Laudicos x Kitchen Mafia: Enjoy Malaysian Dishes with Filipino Twists as Celebrity Chefs Collaborate at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s

Chef Laudico Guevarra's deck up for the Christmas Season
I have always been fascinated with all the textures and flavors of other Asian cuisines apart from our very own. It could be the bursts of flavors or the exercise on one’s palate, but the thought of indulging in Asian food truly excites me. I was recently invited to a launch called Chef Laudicos x Kitchen Mafia to sample and get the first dibs on what Chef Roland Laudico (of Chef Laudico Guevarra’s) and Malaysian celebrity chefs Sherson Lian and Johnny Fua (of Kitchen Mafia) collaborated on for Chef Lau's Guevarra's popular buffet restaurant in San Juan. 

Chef Laudicos x Kitchen Mafia team: Chef Johnny Fua, Chef Sherson Lian, Chef Jac Laudico and Chef Roland "Chef Lau"Laudico of Chef Laudico Guevarra's 



The mere mention of Malaysian cuisine reminds me of a symphony of flavors making Malaysian cuisine highly complex and diverse because of its influences from Malay, Indian and Chinese. As I have known Malay food, they're strong, spicy and aromatic, combining the rich tastes of the many herbs and spices commonly found in Southeast Asia. 

Many of the fresh herbs and roots that are commonly grown in the Southeast Asian region have found their way into Malay cooking. Lemongrass, shallots, ginger, chilies and garlic are the main ingredients that are blended together and then sautéed to make a sambal sauce or chile paste, a condiment that often accompanies every meal of Malay food.

Chef Sherson and Chef Lau met on the set of Asian Food Channel’s Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines back in 2014. As they worked together, Chef Sherson has observed that both Filipino and Malaysian cuisine had a lot of similarities. “It might not exactly be the same thing but it functions almost similarly, the purpose of the ingredient is almost similar,” said Chef Sherson in an interview.

Samgyupsal King Unlimited Korean Barbecue at Le Village Food Park Review


Grilling is enormously popular in Korean cuisine and these days, wherever you look in the metro, you'd seem to find a Korean Samgyupsal restaurant. I’m sure many of you have been to a smoke-filled Korean restaurant where you grill your meat at the table. Most of the Korean samgyupsal restaurants nowadays would usually use a portable gas grill or electric grill to cook at the table because it is more convenient. 

Le Village Park

My friend Rence recently invited me to try another samgyupsal restaurant called Samgyupsal King Unlimited Korean Barbecue, one of the tenants inside a French inspired posh-looking food park with a cool vibe along E. Rodriguez Sr. near Cordillera Street in Quezon City called Le Village Food Park. As a fan of Korean cuisine, I was excited to give this samgyupsal restaurant a try. Since the food park opens at 4PM, I decided to come early since I'm not that familiar with the place and it was my first time to visit.

Why is it important to have a Car Insurance in the Philippines?

Accidents could happen anytime, it's best to be prepared than sorry
Every thing that we worked hard for is important to us. Your car is also an important investment because it brings you to places you must go to. Therefore, you need to take all measure possible to preserve it for as long as possible. I'm pretty sure that before making that car purchase, you must've made some research about it and I'm sure that the word car insurance has also crossed your mind prior to making that purchase. 

If you are still unsure about car insurance even after buying your new car then allow me to enlighten you about the many benefits of having car insurance. You can take insurance anytime after buying your car but we do recommend taking one immediately just after you have got your first car. It is very important for you to get one as soon as possible. 

Sometimes no matter how much you drive safely and carefully, we all know that discipline on the road is one of the major problems in the Philippines right? So it is really practical to get a car insurance in the Philippines. We never know if and when we meet an accident. It happens even to the best of people, regardless of gender, status in life and age. 

One trusted car insurance that also includes protection from natural calamities (acts of God i.e. earthquake, floods etc.)  is the extensive car insurance policy from Malayan Automaster from Malayan Insurance Company. It gives protection from theft, automobile damages and like I've said, acts of God, giving you peace of mind and worry-free travels. 


Here are some of the reasons why you should be getting a car insurance in the Philippines:

  • Your damages will be paid in case of an accident

Car accidents are unpredictable and it can happen with anyone. You can never be too sure such an event won’t happen to you ever and therefore it is always better to be prepared for the worse. As they say, it's best to be safe than feel sorry later on with much regrets. Imagine if your newly purchased car suffers any damage during a car accident, the car insurance can actually help you fix your car sans much hassle. For one, it won't burn a hole into your pocket. It doesn't matter how major or minor the accident is car insurance will definitely provide you a substantial financial leverage to make sure your damaged car will look as good as new. 

  • Getting a Car Insurance Will Reduce Any Liability
Car insurance will be helping you if you're involved or responsible for any car accident and might have caused any significant damage to a second or third part involved. Your car insurance will be paying for the additional costs like medical bills in case there's an injured person, the money for damaging someone else's property among many others. It also saves you from a personal lawsuit that could have caused you more financially speaking. The extend up to which your car insurance can help you will depend on a variety of factors like the extent of damage caused by you or if there's any loss of life. But one thing's for sure, having a car insurance will be a great help than not having one at all. 

  • Car Insurance Covers more than what you thought
Car insurance can help you if your car has damaged someone's property, covers the medical bills of the people involved in the accident and helps you in a personal injury case. It doesn't matter if you're the one responsible or the affected party, car insurance will help if you are injured physically. This is one of the biggest advantages of having car insurance as we all know the skyrocket amount that medical bills can reach especially in private hospitals. 

To encourage more people to get car insurance, many companies are coming up with many discounts and offers. This is available mostly online and new car owners can save a great deal by getting car insurance when they buy their new car.


These were just the three reasons why it is is important to have a car insurance and how getting one can help you in unimaginable ways.

Ukokkei Japan by Menzo SM North Edsa Opens: Slurp Your Way to a bowl of Affordable Authentic Japanese Ramen

Ukokkei Japan by Menzo opens at SM North Edsa

Ukokkei by Menzo,  a Japanese ramen chain officially opens today, December 7, 2018 at the Main Building of SM North Edsa in Bago Bantay, Quezon City. Ukokkei by Menzo makes one kind of soup, the opaque ivory pork broth called tonkotsu that's been simmered for 16 hours! 

Ukokkei Japan by Menzo at SM North Edsa


It seems that ramen is THE THING in the country right now. We found Ukokkei Japan by Menzo to be very good--we've got the first dibs on this newest restaurant to hit SM North. They have a large selection of ramen soups with rich broths from spicy to succulent. Appetizers were also very good. A great place to go on dates, family bonding and friendly meetings. In their SM Megamall branch, they seem to have created quite a cult following because there's always a line of people waiting, always a good indication that the food is worth waiting for. The best part? Prices were reasonable too, not to mention very affordable when compared to other restaurants that also feature ramen as their specialty. 

Ukokkei by Menzo SM North Edsa


Imagine getting yourself a bowl of comfort food for a steal price? What more can you ask for?

How MiGuard Allows You to Outsmart a Burglar and Keep Your Home Safe

Surveillance Cameras
There is a reason why the saying, “Home is where the heart is,” exists. We feel like we can drop our guards and be completely ourselves in our homes because it’s a safe place where we feel most secure and happy. That is, until someone breaks into our house…

Home security is an important topic to address because burglaries happen on a regular basis due to neglect from homeowners and renters. To prevent break-ins, people have to become familiar with ways on protecting their homes and be aware of the tips on how to deal and report a crime to the police if they get in such a situation. By controlling access, providing visibility, and maintaining your property, you are not only protecting your belongings and home, but also yourself and your family.

Being burglarized or experiencing a home invasion can be a life-shattering experience that affects everyone in the household. We have families and homes to protect, and we’re careful with our belongings. That’s why I’m happy to share with you about MiGuard, a state-of-the-art home and small office security and safety alarm system. I was invited to attend MiGuard's launch in Marikina City recently. And I was able to discover how effective and affordable it is to keep our homes safe. As they say, "you can't buy your peace of mind." But I guess with the help of MiGuard, we can afford not to worry so much. 

Unfortunately, burglaries are not the only things that pose danger to a home. Properties are also subject to fires. More often than not, they are caused by cooking or plain neglect and lack of responsibility. Taking active measures to keep your home safe from fires is important, as is having emergency contact(s) available in the event something unfortunate occurs.

Fat Fook at The Globe Tower BGC: One Taiwanese Gastronomic Experience




Fat Fook BGC at The Globe Tower
Living or working in the CBD area definitely has its perks. I’ve always liked Bonifacio Global City (BGC), because it has everything a restless individual needs, and that is ample distraction. From fast-paced corporate power-jobs to the night-outs that come immediately after, spent at the myriad of venues serving a variety of food, culture and entertainment options that ultimately serve one purpose—to kill time. Now, there’s another reason for me to frequent BGC because of the newly opened Fat Fook Restaurant at The Globe Tower. 

A flat lay of the best foods one can find at Fat Fook
Strategically located at The Globe Tower on 32nd Street, Fat Fook is from the same group that has brought us the popular cult ramen called Ramen Nagi. This is the company’s fifth branch of the fast-growing Taiwanese chain. I’ve always wanted to visit Taiwan mainly because of its food and while I still do not have the budget for such travel adventures, a visit to Fat Fook will suffice for now. 

I won’t go much into details, because I believe you guys had to visit and see for yourselves, but let me inform you that this Fat Fook branch in BGC has its own takeout counter which makes it more convenient for customers to order their favorite meals to-go. So if you’re a yuppie and working within the area and you’d want to have your fill of Taiwanese foods, you can always grab a bite at Fat Fook BGC.

Special job, opportunities fair set for PWDs on December 2, 2018


Press release:

A special job fair has been slated exclusively for persons with disability, promising disadvantaged members of the community in Metro Manila with employment, livelihood and training opportunities, the Department of Labor and Employment announced yesterday.

The event is a joint undertaking with the Rotary Clubs of District 3830 in observance of the International Day for persons with disabilities. The exclusive offering is also part of the anniversary celebration of the labor department which turns 85 this year.

MAYA Happy Mugs: Great tasting cake in 2 Minutes and MAYA Hotcake Art

Maya Happy Mug in Chocolate and Caramel variants
Yes folks, it’s the most wonderful time of the year again—Christmastime! And whether you’re still in denial about it, the holiday season brings a lot of childhood happy memories back when most of us still believe in the magic of Christmas. Nothing warms my heart than waking up to freshly baked cookies and brownies wafting in the air. So I was glad upon learning that Filipino brand MAYA has made life easier for moms and those who are behind the preparations for Noche Buena. With a number of products to choose from, you can never go wrong with any MAYA product. From their hotcakes, brownie, APF (all-purpose flour) and cake mixes, everything seems so convenient to whip up things that every family will surely enjoy.

It’s a very simple D-I-Y cake which you pop into the microwave oven for two minutes and voila! You can already enjoy a yummy mug cake you’ve just made yourself in minutes. You may add on some more toppings on the gooey cake mix: from fruits to nuts to marshmallows and chocolate bits—have it the way you want it! Kids would surely want to try their hand at making their own MAYA Happy Mug. It’s going to be a good bonding for parents and their kids too. The MAYA Happy Mug is such a sweet treat not just for kids but for those kids-at-heart too. MAYA Happy Mugs are sold at P40.00 (SRP) at supermarkets and groceries nationwide.

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Product Review: Give your skin the TLC it deserves

Althea Korea Milk Peel Cream Mask
Have you guys ever experienced extreme skin dehydration? Well, I did. Back then, I remember my skin felt like it was Sahara desert. Luckily, you need not experience such anymore with the numerous skincare products which are now available today. I recently discovered Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask from Althea Korea, one of the most popular online site that sells amazing Korean products from beauty, skincare and even cosmetics at the best steal price! If you’ve been my blog reader, you know that I’ve been recently accepted as an Althea Angel (one of their many beauty brand ambassadors of Althea Korea).
