If you follow me on my social media accounts, I'm sure that you've seen posts and updates on my Canon Inspic S Camera.

Planning for the Perfect Lockdown Date with Your Significant Other

Sunday, May 23, 2021

     Going on regular dates with your significant other is one of the many ways you can keep the romance alive and strengthen your bond and commitment to one another. As you explore different dining places and travel to popular destinations within and outside Metro Manila together, you and your partner can experience much-needed timeout from your day-to-day routine and better see each other in a new and exciting light.

     Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic drastically changed everything, including the options for outings among Filipino couples. Even today government restrictions on movement and gatherings are still widely implemented in many places around the Philippines. That means candlelit dinners in fancy restaurants, watching concerts and musicals, and other similar activities are no longer viable options for the time being.

NEED: Canon Inspic S and Canon EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Camera

Monday, April 12, 2021

     After five years, the much-needed blogging/vlogging gears upgrade happened last month. The decision did not happen overnight but thinking of what brand to get is a no-brainer because it's like the song "Always Been You" by Imajin, hahaha! There are a couple of brands to consider but Canon has always been in my mind and in my heart. It's what my vlogger friends use and recommend especially if you are looking for a super nice camera to take photos and shoot videos for online content creation. No wonder why the infamous Canon Powershot G7 X Mark is dubbed as the "most recommended vlogging camera" by beauty and lifestyle vloggers when the rise of video content hit the Philippine shores some years ago.

     Fast forward today, I finally get a hold of these babies that I'll be using to create high-quality content in this blog and in our vlogs (my husband is a content creator too a.ka. Pinoy Drunken Chef). Since we are going to use these gears mostly for vlogging, instead of getting the latest Canon G7 X Mark III (that's also really nice if you're a newbie vlogger and prefers a small and compact camera) we opted for another model of Canon camera that's selling like hotcakes since it was launched last February this year- Canon EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Camera. Get to know more about Canon EOS M50 Mark II and my other baby Canon Inspic S (that I'll also be using to shoot random photos but in a more fun way) after the jump!

Despite the hardships and challenges that the past months of quarantine have posed, there are still so many things that everyone can be thankful for, especially that staying safe at home has brought everyone closer together.

     When everybody welcomed the new decade full of hopes and excitement, no one could have predicted how a health crisis would put an indefinite pause on their plans and resolutions for the year. However, radio personality and wonder-mom Riki Flo felt blessed to have spent the time in quarantine with the company of her loving family. She says, “I realized that spending time at home with people you love the most is a luxury, and when life got too real, I was reminded of that.
