Today, August 18 is the first death anniversary of Secretary Jesus "Jesse" Manalastas Robredo, one of the Philippines' promising leaders. A few days after that fatal accident last year, I wrote about how the death of a good leader can set a country back, especially when that leader is someone like Jesse. There are only a few good men in politics today, the type that can lead, manage and carry out good governance. We just had elections last May and once again, the results were a big disappointment to people like me who had hoped that there would be new faces in the Senate, Congress and local government who would bring about dynamic changes for the country.

I hate pink. I would never consciously wear pink except if I really have to. The very first time I did was during my high school prom and only because I was a junior and pink was our assigned color (blue was for the seniors). The second and third times were the occasions when I was a wedding sponsor. I avoided this color like the plague, mainly because I thought that being fair skinned, I did not look pretty in pink. Besides that, I associated the color with sweet and girly things, both of which did not appeal to me. And so, you can just imagine who, what and why my world suddenly turned all shades of pink! photo retrieved from http://www.squidoo.com/celebrationofpink

My curiosity got the better of me and before I knew it, I was browsing through the website which was easy to navigate with good descriptions and images of their products. The choices were varied and surprisingly the prices were very affordable. Best of all they had several payment options which includes COD, my preferred mode of payment for online shopping. Last July 18, I placed my first order of a Typify Corneby Genuine Leather Satchel (from P1,999.00 to P1, 699.00, after using my discount code) and three days later, the bag arrived through LBC. The bag was everything I needed - classy design, made of soft, genuine leather with well made in
