Why would you swap your old car for a Foton?
When I first read this question, I told myself "you don't have a car of your own" then I laughed at the idea of having a "car... kariton" as my means for transportation. Can you imagine me rocking a kariton on my way to work? :)

Jokes aside though, if I had a car, I'd surely swap it for one of the most amazing brands there is today - Foton. No, I am not saying this to make the people from Foton read this post, I am saying this because it's one brand that has proven it's promise of great quality to me.

Here's my story...
We imagined it as the best vacation ever, but no, the typhoon mocked us by raining really hard that afternoon. It was as if my friends and I had some back luck tailing with us because wherever we go, the rain just won't stop.
Because we already spent too much and we were eager to keep our spirits up, we decided to pursue our plans of going to the mountains.
"For sure, the rain would stop later today and we can start camping tomorrow," we told ourselves.
And boy were we so wrong! When we got there, it rained non-stop the whole night. Even after around 12 noon the following day, it was still raining. My friend said we would have to text the driver of the habal-habal whom we made plans with to come pick us up before the weather becomes worse. We were not thrilled of the landslide news we heard.
But the driver said the road home was already impassable - the flood was already waist-deep and the road was very bumpy.
What to do? Where to go? What ride to take?

And that was when a Foton Light Duty Truck passed by us. We asked the driver if we could "hitch" a ride to town. Fortunately, he said yes. The Foton Light Duty Truck showed it's best quality amidst the big rocks, the high-rise flood, and the bumpy road. It's machine did not show a sign of overheat or any damage, at all! It was a roller coaster ride but we had a reliable truck! We were so thankful because we got back to town safe and sound.
Now that's the kind of truck we would love to have, don't we? TESTED AND PROVEN, as they say!
Can your truck beat that? I guess NOT.

As some of you know, I have this great desire to travel... I have this longing to know different cultures and to meet a lot of people. I have always believed that there is so much to see in the world yet so little money to visit them all.
BUT NOT ANYMORE! :)
Last month, AirAsia Philippines announced that our dream flights are finally a reality - they’re moving its flights from Clark Airport to Manila (Terminal 4) in order to serve better more Filipinos who want to fly! AirAsia, the world’s 5-time best low cost airline according to Skytrax has synergized forces with Zest Air, the affordable low-cost airline nestled in NAIA Terminal 4.
They are all daring us to compare the prices when we travel in the Philippines and see for ourselves that they are the best! Wooot! We can also travel in Asia with AirAsia in really low prices - guaranteed! That's what I call confidence! :)
Thus, I'm now re-checking my travel plans and making sure that I choose Air Asia when I go to Cebu, Davao, Kalibo (Boracay), Puerto Princesa, Tagbilaran, Cagayan De Oro, and many more. Here are the places I want to visit soon:

See? I'm really excited that I edited myself in the photos. I hope that I can visit these places so I can finally delete them from my bucket list! Whooo! :)<3 3>

You must stop suffering for love, you get nothing remembering who is no longer here. Focus on your new life, look for a better future, Aries.
Resisting to accept the obvious in love just makes you more harm. Be flexible, be rational, adapt and move on, Taurus.
The person you're interested in love, could emit very severe judgments. Take due note of this, if this is the reaction when nothing happens between you, what would you expect in a situation of conflict, Gemini.
You're exposing yourself unnecessarily and recklessly in love. Do not trust who can be a fake, Cancer.
In love, do not live tied to certain memories that hurt. Live facing the future with hope and no fear, Leo.
You have everything under control in love, even if that means to prolong your solitude further. This time things will be done by your rules, Virgo.
Love will knock your door. Overflowing feelings, emotions that you thought forgotten will come to light, Libra.
The person you intend to relate in love, doesn't tell the truth. Watch, because lying surrounds whom is now the object of your desire, Scorpio.
That person is so self-centered, not who you need on your side as a partner. In love, do not make decisions just to end your loneliness, Sagittarius.
Fate will play its part in love. An unexpected meeting will change your life, Capricorn.
For now, you feel vulnerable and powerless for a new relationship. Give yourself time, grief is always necessary and if yours lasts longer, don't worry, will reborn later with renewed strength, Aquarius.
That person is not reliable, you're being convinced with sweet deception, with what exactly you want to hear. Be careful in love, Pisces.

You're dealing with the same risks of the past in love, watch out. You won't be able to blame anyone for the consequences of your actions, Aries.
For now everything is surrounded by suspicion and doubts, but you will have to learn to give your heart again. If you don't, loneliness will be your only friend, Taurus.
It will be difficult to establish a harmonious link with that person in love. The most reasonable thing would be to let them go, but your anxiety could win the game, Gemini.
Go with all you got to the conquest of love. If you want happiness, you have to expose yourself and risking, Cancer.
That person is not for you, in love there is no middle ground. Convince yourself, life has given you enough evidence that idealizing is not the way, Leo.
That person may have a generous attitude with you, but love is something else. Make no mistake, don't see what you want to see, Virgo.
Don't give up in love, there's something that can be rescued. Finally you catch the attention of the person you're interested, but there's still some way to go, Libra.
Ponder your emotions and feelings, your loving future will depend on that. Balance is the goal, Scorpio.
You are helpless, taking unnecessary risks in love. The object of your desire is not honest, be cautious, Sagittarius.
A better future is possible in love. You got the right person at your fingertips, just dare to be happy, Capricorn.
It is necessary to maintain a calm attitude in love. You will get nothing with emotional outbursts if things do not turn out as desired, Aquarius.
A new person in love shows up, however you may not be very compatible. Weigh the situation and perhaps it would be better to wait for someone more appropriate, Pisces.

In love, you worry too much about things that certainly have no easy solution, therefore, it is best not to think about them. Just live life, be simple and be happy, Aries.
Do not make the mistake of being inconsistent with that person in terms of love. Your message must be loud and clear, otherwise, there will be no possible relationship between you, Taurus.
Life will give you a surprise in love. Your past is closer to you than you think, just let yourself go, Gemini.
Free yourself from past sufferings, if the distress continues to fill your life, love won't knock on your door. Life goes on, go thou with her too, Cancer.
You say you want love, but really don't do much to get it in your life. You need to work harder and better, Leo.
If you really want to win that person, show your best image. Certain attitudes can be very questionable in love, Virgo.
You will have to control certain attitudes if you want someone in love with you. You can not go through life doing only what pleases you, Libra.
Be careful, that person you're interested may have disloyal attitudes. Don't fall into a love trap again, Scorpio.
The past is a heavy burden that won't let you be happy in love. You have to close that chapter of your life in order to stop losing opportunities, Sagittarius.
Little coincidence and incompatibility with your partner, it is very hard to be together. You will have to rethink many things, Capricorn.
Things will get better with that person you're interested in. A notable change is underway in love, Aquarius.
In love, you better change rather than continue lamenting. If you don't renew from within, love will hardly come to you, Pisces.

MANILA, Philippines - After his much-talked about breakup with Maja Salvador, Kapamilya actor Matteo Guidicelli remains alone and available - or as we in showbiz mistakenly would like to put it so, loveless.
The Italian-Filipino hunk says it’s his choice to remain unattached for the time being. He wants to concentrate on his career and to have a new girlfriend will only mean having a rebound.
“I don’t want to make any girl my rebound. Hindi tama iyon, kawawa lang ‘yung girl [It's not right, pity the girl]," Matteo told a contributor for Rappler during an interview.
“Kaya [That's why] I want to really heal and move on from what happened in the past. I feel kasi that I am not ready yet to commit to a relationship.
"Baka ang mahirapan ay ang girl na makakasama ko [The girl might find it difficult].
“I’m not in a hurry and I want to take my time being single.”
He was linked for a time with Jessy Mendiola, but that fizzled out.
“Like what I said, wala pa sa tamang panahon [the time isn't right].
“Me and Jessy, we’re good friends. Let’s stay like that muna. I am aware that Jessy is also busy with her career which is really [thriving] right now.”
But Jessy is rumored to be the apple of Sam Milby's eyes. Will he regret not courting Jessy now that Sam is rather earnest about Jessy?
“It’s all up to Jessy. Siya naman ‘yung nililigawan, eh [She's the one being wooed].
“If she feels that Sam is the one, then she should go for it.
“Ngayon kasi, friendship lang ang puwede kong mai-offer kay Jessy."
(As of now, friendship is all I could offer Jessy.)
"But whoever she is with, I am genuinely happy for her.”
But all is well at work. He reunites with Andi Eigenmann in "Galema: Anak ni Zuma." Their last time together was "Agua Bendita" in 2010.
“I miss working with Andi. When we did 'Agua Bendita,' mga bata pa kami noon [we were quite young then]. We were both very new in this industry.
“But 3 years went by and what happened to both of us made us mature faster.
“Andi has her baby and I guess hindi naman siya [she's not] loveless.
"Ako loveless talaga [I'm really loveless], but I am happy with my status right now.
"Huwag lang [So long it's not] complicated!”

Rock the society by being the most fabulous version of yourself without spending too much!
Wanna know a secret? No matter how gorg you already are now, you can still look and feel even better! This is one of the things I learned through the years. The key is to know what to buy, where to shop, and when to spend your precious funds! That it why it is a top priority to check online for promotions and sale events before hitting the mall!
Before, I did not see the value of research. I thought that if I have the money, I would have everything that I need to shop new items and be more fabulous! However, I realized that had I known there was a sale the following day, I would have waited so I could save and buy even more dresses and shoes!
Facebook was my main source for promos and sale before. I made sure I was a fan of all the stores that I loved - boutiques, furniture, gadget stores! I found it useful when my favorite haven for new beauty items announces a sale online. Also, I frequently visit tech blogs since they usually post some sale announcements after their gadget reviews.
I also spend so many hours visiting the sites of the most awesome people on earth (Bloggers! LOL. Visit my other site?) to get an update if they are excited for some promotions as well. Fashion bloggers, especially those famous ones, usually get an inside scoop when there are sale events. If only I was a little more sexier than I already am (Haha. Laughing to myself), I would do fashion posts too. Unfortunately, my waistline is not cooperating! Lol
But I guess I just found my partner in life!
Save22 is... how do I say this? *drum roll please* ...the brightest of them all! It is the queen, the bomb, the most high! (I'm running out of superlatives but I know you know what I mean! *wink)
The site offers really comprehensive deals about sale info, pricing, and promotions. And what makes Site22 stand out? It is updated DA-HAY-LEE, sisters! Yes, DAILY.
Imagine not having to wait for fan pages and bloggers to post! Imagine having to know the grandest packages on your most convenient time! Imagine the amount of time, money, and effort saved!
NOW STOP IMAGINING AND DO SOMETHING! I encourage and DARE you all to be a better version of your already-awesome-self. Know what, where, and when to shop and get the most updated information of leading Filipino retailers’ promotions and catalogs by visiting Save22 before you go shopping offline. Do it and do it now!
Cheers to a fabulous and thrifty life!
