Imagine, draw, and win in the Nesfruta Make It Real Na Real Promo!

When I was a little girl, one of my hobbies was drawing. I drew a lot. I liked to color too, using different coloring materials like pastels, colored pencils, and paint. I was however a copycat. I would find things I liked to draw and then copy them. I was good at it too. Somehow, at the back of my mind I've always wished I could draw something original... something uniquely mine. I wanted to create my own comic book characters... that kind of thing. But being a copycat always took precedence over my artistic endeavors. I wanted to draw something nice every time and maybe I thought copying something that already looked good was the way to do it.

I haven't drawn in years but my daughter has been showing an interest in it. But I see her becoming like me, a copycat. She would find things she likes and copy them on paper or on her tablet.

Like me, my daughter likes to read and has taken an interest in manga (Japanese comics). She once drew Kyoko (see above), one of the popular characters in a manga series entitled Maison Ikkoku on her tablet using her finger, lol.

But I want her to become so much more than the copycat I was and so I always encourage her to use her imagination and draw what she wants. I would tell her that the drawings need not be perfect now but in time she will eventually get there. It's more important to be able to draw on your own not just copy from what others had already imagined before. I think having a rich imagination is important in becoming a well-rounded person because it lets you approach a lot of things differently. You can think out of the box. In the real world, this is how solutions are found and problems are solved.

Anyhow, when I saw the Nesfruta Make It #RealNaReal Promo being advertised, I immediately thought it was something my daughter would be interested in. She likes drawing and cute characters plus she's always bugging me to buy her cutesy anime and manga plush toys.

Too Cool For School Jean George Llong SPF 50 PA+++ Review

I got this Too Cool For School Jean George Llong SPF 50 PA+++ Sunblock from my evil twinnie Marj Sia. She told me this is one of the best CC's she had ever used. This is I think CC Cream review no. 9! Okay so it's not officially a CC Cream but a sunblock if you check its product classification at Too Cool For School. But Marj told me TCFS's Korean intern translated the package blurb to her and it is actually a CC Cream with high SPF.

Too Cool For School Jean George Llong Sunscreen
When I first saw Jean George Llong, I thought it was a men's skin care product. Plus, it didn't look Korean so I had a hard time believing it was from Too Cool For School.

But it is from Too Cool For School!

The product itself looks bright and yellowish white. I had a good feeling about it. This is usually the kind of shade that matches my skin tone nicely. It's really really CC Cream-ish.

Surfer Girl from Summerland in Eastwood City!

The day typhoon Ruby was supposed to pass through Metro Manila was a Monday. It was also the day of Surfer Girl's store opening at Eastwood Citywalk.

Surfer Girl Philippines Eastwood City
Surfer Girl is an Indonesian brand which sort of reminds me of Roxy. Surfer Girl carries summer-themed merchandise like swimwear, flipflops, tote bags, keychains, etc. Their first Philippine store is located in Eastwood Citywalk 2. I think it goes well with Megaworld's township theme for Eastwood City (meaning they want Eastwood City to be its own self-sustaining place with everything readily accessible by walking) because of the brand's casual and slightly sporty image.

This blonde character with a surfboard is, you guessed it, Surfer Girl, lol!

The shop is bright and well-stocked, ideal for quick shopping trips since you can see pretty much everything they have in one go. Let me take you through some of their available merchandise. Maybe you can go Christmas gift-shopping! :)
