After typhoon Yolanda struck several provinces in the Philippines, it left piles of rubble and thousands of casualties in its wake. I’m sure everyone who saw what happened wanted to help and the whole world reached out to help our fellow Filipinos.
The situation made me more aware of the comforts in life that we take for granted so easily. The fact that the survivors were homeless and hungry made me appreciate our humble home as well as the presence of my loved ones. So aside from the generosity that sprung out, I also felt a bit guilty so I refrained from making unnecessary expenses and the like.
Then I found out about different commercial establishments donating part of their profits to the victims of the typhoon and I thought that was a good way to spend money. Similarly, you can pamper yourself at the salon and still be able to help.
I have personally experienced Status Salon’s services and got to meet the owners, Ms. Robina and Roseann Ko, who were both very welcoming during the launch of this project. I couldn’t be more grateful to them and Krisha for inviting me.
So my hair color has gone down in the past few months. It looks a bit terrible in the sun - like a cross between your roots showing and ombre hair. I took the opportunity to have my hair colored by their stylist, Nikki Bacay.
This is the result and I really like it! I’ve always wanted that rich chocolate-y brown hair color and it just brings out my curls more. When I asked what this shade was called, he explained that he mixed three different colors to get this shade.
It’s been a few days since I got my hair colored and I was a bit worried that it would make my hair dry. It was already a bit dry from the perm but surprisingly, the dye made my hair softer. I thought this was a pleasant surprise cause I was expecting the worst. So I definitely recommend their hair color services. You’ll find a list of their services and the corresponding prices under the cut:
I apologize for abandoning the blog for a week. Been busy with graduate school and playing Sims in between. Hahaha. Here are some of the memories I think are worth sharing:
- One Republic’s concert was the first concert I attended ALONE. Yes, alone. The thought of it was a bit unnerving but I do what I have to do for the love of One Republic.
- Went to the Manila Auto Salon with Joren after our last Deaf Awareness Week activity where we played games and gave out prizes to deaf children. Had the most pleasant surprise when I bumped into my two best friends in Mall of Asia the same night! I missed them so much!
- What is life without food? White toblerone walnut torte from Mom and Tina’s and a banoffee cupcake from the halls of the Medicine building thanks to Nursing Week that made me end my shift at the Center for Audiological Sciences on a sweet note.
- Saturdate with Joren. If you like spicy stuff, try Tokyo Tokyo’s wasabi fries. Not too spicy but it has that kick in it.
