Unboxing The New GOLD in Beauty- Orabella!

First of all, I really, really love the recent event that I attended, Orabella, because they made us feel like distinguished guests! They were so nice and generous to all of us, and the launch was indeed so much fun!

It gave me a hint as to how they would treat their future business partners, members and distributors- like family!

Unboxing The New GOLD in Beauty- Orabella!

Orabella is derived from Ora or Oro, which is Spanish for Gold, and Bella, a Latin baby name which means beautiful or yielding to prayer.

This party happened in the afternoon of last August 5, 2017 at 201 Parc Chateau Condominium, Onyx Rd. cor. Sapphire St,  Ortigas Center, Pasig City, Philippines.

The program consists of registration, doxology, games, raffles, Unboxing Gold in Beauty, Introduction of Orabella Products, Business Package Discussion, Refreshments and Skin Analysis.

The host for the day was the lively and lovely Ms. Diana Sadie, Orabella consultant.

Orabella Gold in Beauty skin care whitening system includes Whitening 5-in-1 Deodorant, Whitening Intimate Wash, Whitening Hand & Body Lotion, Whitening 8-in-1 Day Cream, Whitening 2-in-1 Night Cream, Whitening Facial Toner and Whitening Soap.

At first I thought that Orabella has gold as ingredients, but it is actually brightening skin and personal care products powered by NanoCare Technology, (nano is a unit prefix for one billionth, in other words, very tiny). Orabella's whitening nanoparticles are clinically proven to release nutrients deep into the skin.

Love Cats? Uncover the Hidden Game in Samsung J7 Pro!

Hello po! Here is how to reveal this hidden game on the Samsung J7 Pro which has been compared to Pokemon Go, but this time with kitties (perfect for the crazy cat lady me)- Android Easter Egg Neko!

So I have recently purchased a Samsung J7 Pro in Gold (32 GB) and since it was a pre-order, I also got the scoop speaker for free, plus we managed to get a powerbank too because it was paid for in spot cash (15,990).

The bummer with the store, MobileWorld in SM North, however, is that when we asked for a screen protector and casing, they tried to sell us an original case with screen protector for Php 1,400. Since I felt uneasy with the price being so high, I wanted to canvass in other stores too so we just bought the screen protector for Php 300. That makes their casing  still  quite expensive at Php 1,100 (1,400 less 300), considering other stores and even Samsung concept sells it for just 899.

Hmmm,, seems like they wanted to get back the power bank they gave which was supposed to be free. And mind you, even though I asked if the screen protector is legit fit for the J7 Pro and ate assured yes, I noticed that another brand was written- was it Oppo F3?-  and it did not fit exactly. The 2 holes at the upper right (for the flash and camera) were covered by the protector and the edges at the sides were also not sakto, giving me a hard time when highlighting first characters along the leftmost side.

Well TBH, her galawan was already like a hustler. I mean, we were still asking about the accessories but she wouldn’t let go of our unit.

Moving on, I am glad that some kind guys online taught us this fun game.

Here is how to make the secret game, Android Easter Egg or Android Neko, appear:

1. Go to Settings
2. Go to About Phone
3. Go to Software Information
4. Tap rapidly and multiple times Android Version

5. Nougat logo N will appear
6. Tap quickly 4 times the Nougat logo N, then long hold the 5th tap until a small cat emoji appears at the bottom

Here is how to make the secret game, Android Easter Egg or Android Neko, appear:

7. Fully swipe from up to down to make quick settings panel appear and click the 3 dots on the upper right
8.  Go to Button Order

9. Drag the cat emoji ???? to add into a vacant space at the quick settings panel

10. Click the empty dish and add bait- bits / fish / chicken / treat

11. There will be a vibration and notification every time a cat is caught

samsung j7pro review

12. Long press the dish to see your collection

Happy collecting of Samsung Android Easter Egg Cats

Tips:

  • The cute cats are in different hues and patterns of black, brown, gray, green, orange, cream (or is it yellow?), white, pink, red, blue and wear different collars.
  • You can rename your cats.
  • This is really a nice game, you just have to wait for a cat to appear and eat your  bait- bits / fish / chicken / treat. Be diligent in putting in new food every time the dish is empty. 
  • There are also some instances of duplication, wherein a cat which had already been caught appears again. But they do not get double on the list.
  • Whether your mobile data / wifi is on or off,  you can catch a cat. But I think the duplication commonly happens when you catch a cat while off-line.

Happy collecting of Samsung Android Easter Egg Cats! :)

Samsung Galaxy Note8 Philippines- Welcome to the Unpacking!

Hello po! Frens I had the privilege to attend the ultra exclusive unpacking of the newest Samsung Galaxy Note8 last August 26, 2017 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura BGC.

ultra exclusive unpacking of the newest Samsung Galaxy Note8 last August 26, 2017 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura BGC.

With its slogan, Do bigger things, Samsung Galaxy Note8 boasts:
Intelligent S Pen for a more realistic writing experience
Ultimate dual-lens smartphone camera to capture stunning photos
Larger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand
Opening new worlds- Bixby and DeX!

samsung galaxy note8 specs

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 retail price in the Philippines is Php 49,990 and is launching on September 29. Pre-order starting September 8 and get a FREE AKG speaker worth Php 7,990, 20% off on 1 selected Galaxy Note8 accessory, 10% off on 1 selected wearable.

samsung galaxy note8 price philippines
The FREE AKG speaker that comes with a pre-order.

Samsung first introduced the Note series in 2011 and now this is their best yet.

A New Way to Communicate with the S Pen

Since its introduction, the S Pen has been one of the Note’s defining features. With the Galaxy Note8, the enhanced S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and communicate with friends. It has a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and features that enable users to express themselves in ways that no other stylus or smartphone ever has.

When communicating with text just isn’t enough, Live Message allows you to reveal your unique personality and tell expressive stories. With the Galaxy Note8, you can now share animated texts or drawings across platforms that support animated GIFs(AGIF). It’s a whole new way to communicate with the S Pen—adding lively and emotional connections that bring your messages to life.

The Always On Display allows Galaxy users to stay on top of their notifications without unlocking their phone. And with the Galaxy Note8, it’s even more powerful. Screen off memo allows you to take up to one-hundred pages of notes as soon as you remove the S Pen, pin notes and make edits directly on the Always-On Display.

For overseas travels or when you come across a website in a foreign language, the improved S Pen Translate feature lets you hover over text to quickly translate not only individual words, but entire sentences in up to 71 languages, and instantly convert units and foreign currencies.

Better Pictures with Galaxy Note8’s Best-in-Class Camera

Samsung set the standard for smartphone cameras with its past flagship smartphones; and with the Galaxy Note8, we’re delivering our most powerful smartphone camera yet.

The Galaxy Note8 is equipped with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens. Whether you’re exploring a new city or running around your backyard, OIS lets you immortalize those memories in sharp and clear quality.

For more advanced photo-taking, the Galaxy Note8’s Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after you take the photo.

In Dual Capture mode, both rear cameras take two pictures simultaneously and allow you to save both images; one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that shows the entire background.

The wide-angle lens has a Dual Pixel sensor with rapid Auto Focus, so you can capture sharper, clearer shots even in low-light environments. The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video chats.

samsung galaxy note8 colors, Midnight Black and Maple Gold,
Galaxy Note8 comes in 4 colors internationally, but in the Philippines they are launching in 2 colors- Midnight Black and Maple Gold.

Enjoy and Do More on the Infinity Display

The Galaxy Note8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet its narrow body makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display lets you see more and scroll less. The Galaxy Note8 gives you more room to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone. (Blogger's note: Screen size 6.3" as measured diagonally in the full rectangle.)

Note users have long been able to do more with Multi Window. With the Galaxy Note8, the new App Pair feature lets you create a custom pair of apps on the Edge panel and simultaneously launch two apps with ease. Watch a video while messaging your friends or dial into a conference call with the number and agenda in front of you.

Galaxy of Features and Services

Water and Dust Resistance: Four years ago, Samsung introduced the first Galaxy device with water resistance. And today, you can take your Note almost anywhere you want with water and dust resistance (IP68) on the device and the S Pen.You can write even when the display is wet.
Fast Wireless Charging: Two years ago, we introduced the first Galaxy device with wireless charging. The Galaxy Note8 supports the most advanced wireless charging capabilities yet, so you can get a quick, convenient charge without having to mess around with ports or wires.
Security: The Galaxy Note8 offers a choice of biometric authentication options—including iris and fingerprint scanning. Samsung Knox provides defense-grade security at the hardware and software layers and with Secure Folder, keeps your personal and professional data separate.
Powerful Performance: With 6GB RAM, a 10nm processor, and expandable memory (up to 256GB), you have the power you need to browse, stream, play games, and multitask.
Innovative Mobile Experiences: Samsung DeX enables a desktop experience, powered by your phone. You can keep your files on your device, conduct work on the go, and use Samsung DeX when you need an even bigger screen. The Galaxy Note8 includes Bixby, a smarter way to use your phone; it learns from you, improves over time, and helps you get more done.

Battery Safety Commitment

The Galaxy Note8’s battery has undergone Samsung’s 8-Point Battery Safety Check—the most rigorous in the industry. ULInternational, a global independent safety science company with more than a century of expertise innovating safety solutions has backed up Samsung.

They have shown touching videos and had sincerely apologized (the issue with last year's 7), and with the love and forgiveness of Samsung enthusiasts, the tech giant has moved forward and aimed to be better than ever.

Also worth sharing is that the ownership of Samsung Galaxy Note8 is not only bragging rights or having probably the best smartphone in the world at the moment, but just flashing it or being a member of its elite circle of owners gives exclusive VIP privileges! Be it coffee, airport, transport, etc.- more perks and treats!

samsung galaxy note8 review

The guests, partners and bloggers were indeed very delighted to have played with the units and experience having in our hands such a powerhouse device. I have recently bought and am very much loving the Samsung J7 Pro (and I also have other Samsung units- other celphones, washing machine, our family TV, etc.) and my, I would be thrilled to have a Galaxy Note8! :)

ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Kiss & Blushes Review

Hello po! I was like a kid again as I played with Princess goodies, but this time, it ain't dolls! These are the toys for the bigger girls- Kiss & Blushes from ThaiWhite Skincare Organics.

So I already reviewed their eyelash enhancing castor oil here, now for the lip cheek tints!

ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Kiss & Blushes Review

I remember a few months ago, while I was inside a PUV, a couple of young crews from a fastfood chain were talking and saying how much they like lip tints since they find lipsticks heavy (maybe waxy?!)

ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Kiss & Blushes is light on lips like a lip tint but has the staying power of a liquid lipstick (maybe longer!) It stays put the whole day but of course results depend on how many times or how greasy what you ate is, how dark the shade, or how many layers applied. In my case, in some instances, it even withstood face washing with soap!!!

ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Kiss & Blushes ingredients, price,

Ingredients:
Distilled Water, Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Plant Pigments (Strawberry, Cherry, Tomato, Beetroot, Coffee), Treated Titanium Dioxide, Organic Avocado Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Organic VCO, Organic Castor Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), leucidal.

Price:
Php 150/bottle

Likes:
  • FDA approved
  • Safe
  • Organic, no harmful chemicals
  • Skin nourishing beneficial ingredients
  • Vegan, ECO cert

L-R: Swatches under natural light, with camera flash, and when poured water on, it stays. 2 coats so that the color will be more appreciated in the picture.


ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Kiss & Blushes swatches,
Just one layer, but crazy pigmented!!!

Review:
So I wore it every single day for more than a week, and this is what I can say-
Feels light
Long lasting
No irritation
No dryness/chapping
Does not transfer to my drinking cup
Cute packaging like wine bottles
Bubblegum scent
Fast drying- basta thin layer apply sa lips (at least makakakain o makakainom agad, hindi na ko maghihintay ng matagal para matuyo), while if I place a thicker dot on both cheeks, it allows me enough time to blend

Suggestion:
To have these lippies sealed for consumers' protection!

Favorite color:
My fave shade is Peppa Pink, hubby's fave (on me) is Jameeka, while cousin's fave is Sheena!

ThaiWhite Skincare Organics Real Plus and Castorseed Oil Review!

Hello po! Those in the quest for lusher eyebrows and eyelashes surely have come to discover that castor oil is the best. It's pretty cheap and it works. But not just any castor oil that we can easily buy from the drugstore - it's wise to choose ORGANIC! And it's so perfect that I was sent Real Plus Eyelash Enhancer and 100% Pure Organic Castorseed Oil from ThaiWhite Skincare Organics.

Real Plus eyelash enhancer and 100% Real Organic  Castorseed Oil from Thai White Skin Care Organics.

The past 3 months or so, I had eyelash extensions. A few of my real lashes had fallen off and the ones that remained pretty much looked withered or brittle. So I really need castor oil to regain my lash health.
