WATCH: KathNiel Stars in a New Action Film

One of my favorite things about technology is that I can use my smartphone to pay for things. I can settle my bills, use it to book rides and accommodations, and pay for groceries and services. One of my favorite apps to use is PayMaya, which does all these things and more. After launching the “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” campaign last year, which gave birth to a catchy video and jingle set to the tune of the hit ‘90’s Eraserheads song “Ligaya,” the “BalikBayad” campaign sees Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla in action-packed scenes teaming up to beat a common foe–cash.

20 Pieces You Should Check Out at Art Fair Philippines 2020

I have made it my pilgrimage to visit Art Fair Philippines. I have not missed a single once since 2013 and I’m glad I made it to this year’s edition. I found this run more exciting, especially the Special Projects section, which was tastefully curated by Norman Crisologo. The way the section was exhibited was cohesive, so moving from one exhibit to another felt more seamless.

This year had 61 galleries (compared to 52 last year) but the fair felt spacious and I was less overwhelmed. As a result, I was able to connect deeper to the pieces and find artwork that spoke to me. My friend Marz Aglipay, the head of digital content at Art+ magazine, has a tip: Start from the top and head your way down, ending the show with the Special Projects section.

I Switched to a Water Purifier and I’m So Happy!

I’m a heavy water drinker so I always need to have some of the stuff nearby. I carry a Hydro Flask with me wherever I go, and I easily go through those gallons of water I have delivered at home. The thing is, as someone who is living on his own, there are times when I’d be so busy to call for a delivery, much less be there to receive it when it arrives. Another issue is, it’s expensive in the long run. So imagine my joy when my friends from Legande, Inc. offered to install a water purifier at home. I immediately said yes!

I Tried DNB’s Everang Premium Collagen Creams

I love taking care of my skin and making sure it gets the treatment it deserves. I think it has paid off because a lot of people express their surprise when I tell them I’m 31 years old. I like to switch brands every now and then, but I generally use Asian products since they’re made for our skin and climate. The newest products I got to try are from Dream of Natural Beauty (DNB), a Korean line that products the Everang Premium Collagen Whitening Cream and the Collagen Sun Cream.
