Soft Hands Kind Heart

FACT: Philippines also ranks fourth in the world in terms of countries with the highest number of prostituted children :(

ECPAT and The Body Shop just recently launched their "STOP Sex Trafficking of Children & Young People" campaign by putting up signature booth on The Body Shop stores worldwide. I wouldn't elaborate on this much but it's really for a good cause so I encourage everyone out there to go to your nearest TBS and sign this petition. This is for FREE and you will get a free sample of their Soft Hands Kind Heart hand cream.

Better yet, buy the full size 50ml hand cream for only 195php ($4). Profits from the sale of this item goes to ECPAT that funds shelter for sex trafficking victims.

The item itself is a good buy:) Really moisturizing and it smells AH-MAZING...AYLAVET! Plus its really small you could easily throw it in your purse ;)

Sign up now :)

Quickie Reviews: MSI Wind U210 & SALT

I really should be off to bed so I'll try to make these reviews as short and sweet as possible for you all ;)

MSI Wind U210
(YAHA! my first ever gadget review!!!)

  • 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo Processor NV-40
  • 2GB 800MHz DDR2 (1 Dimm)
  • 12.1" WXGA LED-Backlit Widescreen Display (1366x768)
  • 250GB 5400RPM Toshiba SATA Hard Drive
  • ATI Mobility Radeon X1270 Graphics
  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless, 1Gb LAN
  • 4-in-1 card reader
  • 6-Cell Li-ion 58WH battery (51Wh reported)
  • Dimensions: (W x L x H) 11.71" x 7.49" x 0.55-1.22"
  • Weight: 3lbs 1oz (with 6-cell battery)

  • so my brother got this last month and I just want to share my own thoughts on this =)

    - With the specs above we could say that for a NETBOOK it is BADASS =)
    - However it's also too big and heavy for a netbook as well.
    - There are also only 2 colors to choose from which are white and gray. Here in the Philippines we only have the gray one.

    ok, so the last 2 items may make you think that this baby isn't very good. Well, I say that just makes it perfect..specially for my brother. It's size just makes it perfect for gaming because as it's specs says, you could actually play games with this (games with graphics like DOTA). And the look is just right for big boys ;) Plus its CHEAP too..a little under 20k php ($442). So if your high school or college brother tells you he needs laptop or netbook for school, blah blah blah.. get him this one!

    Box Contents:
    • netbook
    • charger
    • driver
    • sleeve...a very ugly one

    I also saw SALT today....

    Frankly one word kept ringing in my head the whole time I was watching.... ALIAS. But I still like it though :) 100% action packed and no one would do justice for this role aside from Angelina Jolie :)

    My boyfie finally came back home after 7months of working in the States and he got me some pretty cool stuff. I was thinking of blogging about them, hehe. Would you like to see what he got me??? ;)

    Latest Pigout: Sol Gelato

    Isn't ICE CREAM your all time favorite comfort food?? It is definitely mine ^_^ specially the chocolate flavored ones, YUM YUM (o'.'o). My Latest Pigout post today is not just an ice cream but better. Its Sol Gelato :D Let me first tell you a little about 'gelatos'. They certainly look like ice cream and taste like it too only creamier and richer but the best part is it has lower butterfat content. Read more about gelatos here.

    So going back to Sol Gelato, so how was it better or different than other gelatos there?? Honestly, I haven't tried that many but I did try the one in Greenbelt (sorry I forgot the name) so that would be our point of comparison for this review, hehe:)

    Both have lot's of unique flavors. I'm not sure about this, but I think Sol Gelato has more and they have crazier flavors as well..just look at the pic below..

    WTF?! too bad I was not able to try this...maybe next time

    This one I did try. Our 'other' gelato has Toblerone flavor which I was also able to try. So just to compare which was able to capture the famous chocolate it was based on, hands down, it's Sol Gelato :)

    Another thing I liked about SG is that, aside from their gourmet flavors they still have the regular flavors as well. These are piccolo sizes. They also have the grande (2scoops) and cone (3scoops).

    Unfortunately, there's only one Sol Gelato currently and its at:

    Ground Floor, The Piazza, Mckinley
    Hills, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig
    +632 7980411

    be their facebook fan: www.facebook.com/solgelato

    Disclaimer: I was not paid in any form by Sol Gelato to do this review.

    So am I or am I not the only person here who watched this just recently?? :D Mine's so recent I just saw this yesterday...LAST FULL SHOW haha!! But that's fine, since everybody has seen this already there's no need for me to go in details and go straight the IMO instead, hehe ;)

    Brilliant film. I'm a sucker for films that f*cks my mind :) No surprise there, it's a Christopher Nolan film after all. I'm not a Leo de Caprio fan but I got to say, he was amazing. Ellen Page was lifeless as usual and that Arthur guy...didn't he star on those dorky films from years back?? whatever, he's so in the right track right now, better keep it up :) At first, I never really thought I'd like it because I thought it's gonna be MATRIX, but after watching the verdict was Inception, for me, is more powerful. Why? because we all have subconscious minds and we all dream while 'Matrix' isn't here yet. So what do you think?? how do you know this isn't just a dream?? ;)

    And earlier yesterday, I also watched the Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz's rematch. Err...nothing exciting there :P JMM is definitely one of my fave boxers because he's really intelligent and technical but yesterday, there wasn't much BOOM from El Dinamita, I guess age and drinking his own peepee has caught up on him, hehe :P
