#BlackIsTheNewClean | Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean

Charcoal is black, teeth are white. Two questions are raised in my mind. How does it make your teeth whiter since the concept seems so counter-intuitive? And what other possible benefits can I get with this new product from Colgate? Here’s a snippet from good ol’ wikipedia Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, activated coal, or carbo activatus, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions.[1] Activated is sometimes substituted with active. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a …

A Decidedly Men's Store in High Street Central | GENERAL

Linen Jacket by Uniqlo, Linen Shirt, COS Trousers, Massimo Dutti driving shoes, American Apparel Belt, Vintage 1973 Seiko Watch. (mirror shot. I really need an intern!) GENERAL!  A decidedly Men’s store, one of the few in Manila. I was invited over to check out the new collection of Lyle & Scott, being on a holiday and fond of the brand, I decided to make the visit. The moment you step into the GENERAL store, a feeling of quality is felt. The polished concrete floors, geometric tiles, oxblood chesterfield couch all lend an air that is very british and longstanding. I particularly liked the …

Seeing A Band Live Is A Great Way To Spend A Wednesday Night | CHVRCHES

artwork by: Rob Cham http://robcham.me/   I don’t remember which band I’ve seen perform live last, it always used to be a sort of checklist or a matter of updating the list I have on songkick.com. When the announcement was made (when I saw the news on Instagram) I knew I had to see CHVRCHES! I had only seen them once before, during Coachella early this year but the stage was ultra packed and I could only get so near. Music festivals are great, but going to a venue for the sole purpose of seeing one band perform live has its …

A Luxury Within Reach | BDO Autoloan

   I, like millions of Filipinos have commuted my way around the metropolis and even to some provinces!  In high school, my friends and classmates all had their rides, which I didn’t really envy since I didn’t really have to be anywhere important at that time.

The everyday commute, eventually got me dreaming about a car. To tell you honestly, the yearning for a set …
