Whaley House: The Most Haunted House in America.


I have yet to write about my recent trip to the US but in the spirit of Halloween, I'm going to tell you about my visit to the haunted Whaley House in San Diego, California.

My sister Sab and I are adrenaline junkies.  We like doing stuff that will make our heartbeats rise, including hunting for ghosts.  So when I visited Sab a few months back, she made it a point to include the Whaley House in our itinerary.


Once called by LIFE magazine as "the most haunted house in America", the Whaley House has witnessed a great number of deaths which occurred inside or on the land it is on.

Victorinox I.N.O.X.: A Tour de Force Timepiece.


For its 130th anniversary, Victorinox Swiss Army launches a watch of sharp and versatile design that is so strong it defies imagination! The Victorinox I.N.O.X. Watch can be driven over, frozen, dropped.. And yet still be alive!

The name I.N.O.X. comes from the French word for stainless steel, the solid, durable, and corrosion-resistant material that Victorinox adopted more than 50 years before it became the norm in the Swiss watch industry. Marking a shared link between cutlery and watches, I.N.O.X. is as iconic as the Original Swiss Army Knife. Designed to withstand unusual stress, it has passed with flying colors a ruthless battery of 130 strength tests. Beyond the standard certification tests of the Swiss watch industry, a series of new tests was developed specifically for I.N.O.X. watch.

Oster Kitchen Conversations with Patty Laurel x Sinfully Sabrina.


Unlike my mom, my sister and I lack skills in the kitchen department.  Not that we're not interested because we love food!  I guess it's easier to do the eating than the cooking.  But ever since I've subscribed to Good Housekeeping and other food-related magazines, I've been curious about preparing meals.

Aside from these magazines, I also look at my friend Sab Cristobal-Go's Facebook wall for recipes.  Her posts are so interesting that I couldn't help but ask her why she's not keeping a blog.  Sab tells me that she already has one but she hasn't really been updating it for fear of not having readers.

"Are you kidding?" I tell her. "I know a lot of people will read it.  Your dishes are restaurant-worthy and yet still doable at home.  You should totally build up your blog."

So when I saw Sinfully Sabrina up and running, I was so happy for Sab!   Patty Laurel-Filart, another friend of ours, helped Sab plan her blog launch through Oster Kitchen Conversations.

Marc Coblen's Pink Ribbon Watch To Raise Breast Cancer Awareness.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we usually have fun runs, concerts, charity auctions, and medical missions to help facilitate check-ups and treatments for women who have breast cancer.   However, according to the Philippine Cancer Society, a staggering percentage of Filipinas have a difficult time paying for their treatment, while others are too nervous to continue with theirs. 

This is where Marc Coblen, a Dutch brand created by Jordy Cobelens, the same founder of the well-known timepiece TW Steel (read my blog post about TW Steel), comes in to create a change – and a fashionable one at that. In line with the Breast Cancer Awareness program, Marc Coblen has collaborated with the Philippine Cancer Society’s Best Dressed Women of the Philippines and Lucerne, to create a special edition watch called the "Pink Ribbon Watch"

Earlier this month, I was invited to an exclusive shopping event of UNO de 50's 2014-2015 Autumn/Winter Collection at the new Fashion Hall of SM Megamall.  I asked T's sister Michelle if she wanted to go with me because I know she has been eyeing an UNO de 50 bracelet for a long time.

Osaka Ohsyo: Japan's #1 Gyoza, Now in Manila!


When I heard that the world's #1 gyoza place is opening in SM Megamall,  I wanted to try it but T and I rarely go beyond Makati.   Luckily, I had an errand to run in Ortigas so I went to Megamall after to check out Osaka Ohsho.

Get Free Uber Credits With The Code: UBERjoei.


During my recent trip to the States, my high school friends there introduced me to Uber a mobile app that provides chauffer-driven service.  It was most useful to us during 4th of July weekend when traffic was so crazy and parking was almost impossible that no one wanted to bring a car.  And just recently, I discovered that Uber is available in Manila already!  

If you haven't tried it yet, download the Uber app and enter the promo code UBERjoei to receive P300 in credits.  If your destination is not that far, that's a free ride with my code.
