Vivo’s premium smartphone the V7+ does not disappoint despite an affordable price tag attached to it. This latest pride in Vivo packs in all the top of the line features which is at par with the smartphone industry’s best of the best.

 

Perfect shots anytime, anywhere with the 24MP front-facing camera

Known as a selfie-centric phone, the V7+ perfects all shots for clearer selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera and a 16MP rear-facing camera—one of the industry’s firsts. With the V7+ 24MP front-facing camera photos come out clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking. Likewise, the 16MP rear camera, with its 64MP UHD that can produce detailed quality photos, blurred shots are a thing of the past. Night shots using the camera’s professional mode make photos come out are perfectly clear.

Moreover, the V7+ offers a face beauty feature for Vivo calls, so anyone is always ready to take a video call anytime, any day. When in a dimly-lit environment, Selfie Softlight goes to work offering soft but flattering illumination.

Vivo V7+ does an awesome job with selfies. With the Bokeh mode, selfie photos come out with a tinge of creativity. Backgrounds are blurred to emphasize the main subject of the photo

Augmented visual experience with the all-screen display

Smartphone fans are raving about the V7+’s 5.99” all-screen display with its 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. You can maximize the whole screen even more with the option to remove navigation buttons completely simply with the slide of a finger and enjoy a 12.5% viewing area.                

V7+ brings smart in smartphone with its leading-edge Face ID feature

A smart phone indeed, the V7+ would “wake up” within 0.1 second with the Face ID feature with the user merely picking up the phone and raising it in portrait mode to unlock and it is ready to go. Ultra secure, the Face ID feature employs 106 facial points to avoid other facial recognition.

Enjoy an action-packed game experience

The V7+ rocks the latest OS. Heavy game players can benefit from the V7+ as it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon Octacore processor, making playing of heavy games enjoyable and smooth-running. The V7+ 4GB ROM allows user to multi-task, open multipole applications without the worry of lagging and with the special Game Mode feature, disturbing the current game play with app notifications is never a problem. The Game Mode of the phone also allows for uninterrupted game play while taking a phone call at the same time. The all-screen display of the V7+ makes the visual experience while playing games truly optimal.

Vivo’s V7+ rocks all the outstanding features. However, in terms of quality anchored to affordability, the Vivo V7+ definitely wins. A price that is easy on the pocket and specs that hit the ceiling in terms of quality and performance, the Vivo V7+ is a surefire hit amongst gift-givers and gift-receivers.

Vivo in our Hearts

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”

Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

Snowbing Trinoma

The Korean craze here in Philippines is getting way out of hand. I’m not really into the whole K-POP thing, definitely beauty innovations and slowly learning to embrace Korean food lately this year.

Bingsu, is one that I am really curious. I was told to go for the legit bingsu because its worth it. In the Philippines we have something similar or the counter part the HALO HALO.

Snowbing is a local franchise that caters to Asian cuisine. This post is dedicated to their dessert menu. Their BINGSU AND TOAST.

 

 

 

You may want to visit Snowbing Trinoma 4/F Garden Level near Starbucks. They also offer meals (pasta and pizza) but you have to head towards to SM North.

Let’s headover now to SNOWBING’s highlight dessert the BINGSU (“snowBING”). From P168-P198 you get a big serving of bingsu – A yummy bowl good for sharing. Rich in flavor and the what is the science behind their bingsu’s shaved iced – it doesn’t melt easily. You can opt for take out because like I said it doesn’t melt right away.

I personally like the SALTED CARAMEL (P168) – a perfectly blend of sweet &
salty & CHOCO BROWNIE (P188) – big chunks of brownies! The Tiramisu (P198) ran out during our visit but I feel it taste good and heard its one of their bestsellers.

SALTED CARAMEL

Their bestsellers are the CHEEZY MANGO – their mangoes are the sweetest! (P168), MATCHA GREEN TEA (P198) AND TIRAMISU (P198). You can choose from their 12 BINGSU – so hard to choose, all looks so delish.

Hey Sugar! Trinoma

Living your pastel haven dreams is HEY SUGAR! So far one of the most instagram worthy waxing salon in the metro. It had opened its latest branch at Trinoma. Located at the Ground level near Mercury drug store ( The way  to SM North). 

Hey Sugar! uses all natural and organic ingredients 100% sugar. Here is an insider tip, my friend told me if you donate used razors you get 20% off.

Basically they have COLD AND HOT SUGAR WAS and the prices ranges accordingly to MALE or FEMALE. They have for face waxing, arm and leg waxing, body waxing and brazilian and bikini waxing.HOT WAX was most likely recommended but ofcourse it is still ones reference. It goes like the usual, they spread the sugar wax on the area, apply strip and pull. It ain’t painful, it’s just “nakakagulat”/shocking. It’s tolerable when it comes to sensitive areas. I’ll be posting the pricelist and packages that you can avail.

A little reminder, don’t apply any lotion/creams and don’t shave atleast for 2 weeks before your appointment. Most likely avoid being under the sun after and avoid tight clothing.

They also have threading services for eyebrows, upper lip and full facial. I already tried their threading, it was okay. On my experience compared to other eyebrow salon they only have 1 type of threading service (P150)  unlike others they have specifically for shaping etc and during my experience, I lay down in their salon bed but I also know they have a chair in case rooms are full.

I also recommend their eyelash enhancement especially PERMING compared to extensions. Perming is way safer compared to extensions according my friends. Perming is like getting a permanent mascara. The perm would last about 2-3 months depending on your lifestyle. Basically, they taped around your eyes and you have to do it while your eyes are closed. Apply the first solution from a color pink bottle then leave it for 20 minutes, another solution in a yellow bottle for another 20 minutes and last, from a blue bottle for about 5 minutes. While you are getting a perm why not get a was while waiting 🙂

 

ATC x Preview Editor’s Closet November 11-15

Shop like a Preview Editor and get the latest pieces this season, Preview magazine in collaboration with Alabang Town Center got you covered, This season trends are DENIM, POLKA DOTS, KNIT, 70s and Folk.

The previous ATC X Preview Editor’s Closet was also located at ATC’s Activity Center and every area there was a designated genre of clothing. For this year, is the same concept except that Preview pinpointed this season trends that we’ve been seeing recently in magazine covers and the runways. Personally, I see lots of Denim and 70s style revived lately. Then especially now its winter we’ll  be seeing lots of knits. 

It still has that cozy vibe while shopping, every area is in distinctively designed and Instagram-worthy accordingly. This year I noticed there were more accessories displayed. People might expect high end brands but there are also local brands that made it! Speaking of local brands, a lot them are stepping up their game and matching with the high end brands. These brands are able to follow trends and style that millenials and gen Z would really like. There are affordable pieces, if you patiently look around because different brands are distributed in each genre. You may spot pieces from P500 and above. 

I do agree that ATC is the best venue at the South, growing up at ATC I’ve seen a lot of posh and well dressed shoppers. Not like for fashion week glamour  but like well put together that seem classic and chic.
