If you grew up around the 90’s and the early 2000’s, then I am pretty sure you have encountered the Harry Potter book and film franchise.

If you grew up around the 90’s and the early 2000’s, then I am pretty sure you have encountered the Harry Potter book and film franchise. Oh yes, the story about those kids who waved wands and rode flying brooms in a witchcraft and wizardry school called Hogwarts. If you’re a fan of the franchise, then you have to check out this shop.
Buy Arigatō is a collectible shop that sells anime, game, movie, and character merchandise. It is owned by the lovely couple Gian and Marie Dakay.
Recently, the store sells Harry Potter collectibles. They have socks, neckties, pendants, magic wands, key chains, and so much more. They are all a Potterhead must haves!
So where are they located, you asked?
Luckily, they have 3 locations in Davao City. They don’t have an actual building, but they rent boxes inside stores.
One of their branches is in Abreeza Mall. It’s in the 3rd floor, inside Cube Bazaar (beside Globe Telecom). It’s open during mall hours.
Another one can be found along Roxas Ave. They are inside the Shoppers’ Hub in C5 Dormitel (beside Chippens). It’s open on Mondays to Saturdays, at 10 am to 9pm. Shopper’s Hub was closed when I went, so apologies for the photo!
And lastly, they can also be found in Cuber 2.0. It’s in Matina, fronting the Ateneo de Davao University. It’s only open on Mondays to Saturdays, at 11am to 7pm only.
Even if you’re not into Harry Potter, they also cater other fandoms. They keep you guys covered. So what do you think about this store? Let me know below.

If you haven’t started planning out your summer wardrobe a couple of weeks ago when we were introduced to a bit warmer weather, now it’s definitely high time you did that. Not only will you be traveling to exotic destinations in the blink of an eye, it’s also quite important to have everything ready once the scorching heat hits your city (you won’t be going out in your winter/spring clothes, will you?). If you spent hours thinking what the heck is different in the spring and summer wardrobe, you’re at a right place, as we will introduce the 5 ways to have the summer wardrobe of your dreams. Everything you need is right here, so take a look:
1. Your skin should be your best friend
Before we start talking about the actual wardrobe and the clothes you will be wearing, it’s very important to make sure to follow the proper skin care routine. Summer is such a tricky season concerning this, as the skin tends to receive a lot of sun and UV rays, which can have catastrophic results if not taken care of properly. That is why having all the summer essentials on your bathroom stall is your main priority. Without competition, the most important is a good sunscreen as you definitely want to protect your skin from burning and aging, especially in the summertime.
Since you will probably be wearing something sleeveless and shorts or skirts, make sure to apply the sunscreen to all the visible parts of your body, not just your face. Other essentials that you need to have in your bag are cooling mists (these are life-savers let me tell you that!), lip balms to make your lips more beautiful and waterproof makeup as you don’t want your mascara smudged on your face due to sweat.
2. The daily basics
When we say “daily basics” we refer to all those garments that you will be wearing almost every day. These, first of all, include tees, and if you really want to be fashionable and be able to match your t-shirt with practically everything, have as many plain white ones as you can. Of course, you can also choose a tee with a quote or a logo, especially the latter one as logomania is one of the biggest trends right now.
Furthermore, invest in good skirts and shorts, but make sure they are comfortable as you’ll want to wear these during the whole day. Finally, you can always try to find good summer footwear for everyday use, meaning that it has to be pretty and comfortable (blisters in the summertime are awful).
3. How romantic are you?
Summer is the season of love, so you’ll probably go on several dinner dates or sunset walks. That is why having something light but still pretty is very necessary. The imperative is to have at least one beautiful and trendy playsuit that you will wear during the prettiest summer nights so that you feel very special. Apart from that, make sure to have a lot of dresses, because you want to accentuate your figure and femininity. There is a myriad of choices to choose from, so go ahead and go crazy! Apart from that, you can also have a couple of shirts and pants that you will wear whenever you feel a bit more corporate. That can also be sexy during summertime, and it’s always good to have your wardrobe diverse.
4. Follow the trends
As other clothes are concerned, you simply have to follow all the latest trends, if you want to have the most fashionable everyday summer wardrobe, of course. First of all, go with pastel colors this season – it will keep you cool during the hot days, and there are many casual and elegant looks to try. You can choose ultra violet, pink, yellow, green, blue and red, and if you choose all the same hues, you can try color-blocking, again one of the most popular trends of 2018.
5. The small things
Now let’s focus on the most fun part of the closet – the accessories. For this summer, make sure to have straw hats and bags as this is a trend that will be huge this year, both in the city and on the beach. Moreover, don’t forget to have a good pair of shades that are both high quality (as this is something that you need to pay special attention to while buying sunglasses) and fashionable. Go crazy with minimalistic or industrial jewelry and there you go!
Powering up your wardrobe shouldn’t be a chore, but rather a thing you can’t wait to do. Just make sure to have all the things we mentioned, and we promise you – you will have the best and most fashionable wardrobe of all the people you know!

For people who love to explore the world, it’s hard to find a travel organizer that is strong enough to endure the rough roads while providing optimum protection to your belongings at the same time. Well, I was sent of these pouches for me to provide my honest feedback.
How it all began
Chris Elfering founded BOND Travel Gear in order to address the travelers’ need for a reliable kit. After leaving the military, he then pursued traveling around the world. This means that he has witnessed how tough the world can be. He had made this as an inspiration to come up with handy travel pouches that can withstand extreme conditions.
DASH Dopp Kit
Its fabric is made up of 1000D ballistic nylon. It is the same stuff used in military uniforms. This guarantees that the materials used are very tough and damage-resistant. It is water-resistant too!
Aside from the fabric, double-stitched YKK autolock zippers and stress points guarantee security on your stuff inside. You don’t need to worry about any accidental opening of the pouch once you have closed it. To top it all off, every purchased pouch is backed by a lifetime warranty!
With dimensions of 4.7 in (12cm) x 8.9 in (22.5 cm) x 2.8 in (7 cm), it can hold your travel essentials while being portable enough to carry around.
Personally, I’d like to stuff my toiletries and skin care products in this pouch because of the breathable mesh it has. Also, no space is wasted as you can slip your tools through the stretchable loops. I also like how it opens like a book. I can see everything right away in one look. It saves time and hassle looking for your items. Plus, it includes a Carabiner. The next time you wanted to take a swim, you can just hang it in a safe place!
ESCAPADE Small Gear Pouch
Just like the DASH Dopp Kit, it is made of 1000D ballistic nylon. The YKK autolock zippers and stress points are double-stitched. What made it different from the other pouch is that its elastics are silicone-backed (“No slip”), so your items inside won’t be all over the place.
Its dimensions are 7 in (18 cm) x 8.7 in (22 cm) x 1.2 in (3 cm) so it is ideal as your flight “survival kit”. You can store your passport, your phone and its accessories, as well as your plane tickets. And yes, this is also backed by their lifetime guarantee!
DASH Dopp Kit: $44
ESCAPADE Small Gear Pouch: $39
Because all of you have been lovely, you can purchase the DASH Dopp Kit and the ESCAPADE Small Gear Pouch through their website at a 15% discount. Just use the code STARGAZER15 upon checking out: https://bondtravelgear.com/

I will surely be using them every day because I won’t be worrying that they will get ruined by all the stresses I cast on them. If it happens that they give up, I can pull out the lifetime warranty card! What do you think of that? Comment down below.

If you’re into strawberries and happened to be cruising along the Bukidnon-Davao road, then you might want to drop by Bemwa Farm.
How to Get There
It is highly suggested that you have a private car if you want to reach the farm. There is no sign put up along the road pointing to the place. From Davao City, drive along the Bukidnon-Davao road. Once you’ve seen the Philippine Eagle Monument, you’re almost there. Pay attention on the right side. Once you see a sign saying Garden of Gethsemane Mountain Resort, that’s your cue to turn right. If you’re not sure which way to choose, the locals are nice enough to direct you to the right path.
Once you arrive, you’ll have to pay 50 PHP/1 USD per head. The fee is also consumable. You’ll be given a ticket which you can use if you want to purchase something like food, drinks or plants.
Then you’ll meet a lot of vegetable patches. The area is also adorned with beautiful ornamental plants.
If you’re early, you’ll be able to experience strawberry picking. They say people pick as early as 5 am. Unfortunately for us, we left empty handed.
Bemwa sells ornamental plants, herbs, fruits, vegetables and jams. You can also buy refreshments like strawberry taho. I got lychee lemonade and binignit. Binignit is a Visayan dessert made of glutinous rice, root crops, coconut cream and fruits.
-Be early for the strawberry picking.
-Go there with a private vehicle.
-Bring a jacket to keep you warm.
Marilog District, Davao City, Davao del Sur, Philippines
50 PHP or 1 USD/person
With parking area
Overall, I had fun during my stay. There’s not much you can do around so it’s better if this destination is just an extra in your list. I’d like to know if you had been to a farm. What is it like? Let me know by commenting below.

Have you ever thought of escaping the busy city life and taking refuge in a house close to nature? You know, where trees are abundant, birds are chirping, the sound of the gushing river is music to the ears. Well, this place might be for you.
Buda Vista Vacation House is located along BUDA (Bukidnon-Davao) Road in the southern part of the Philippines. To get there, you can rent a van with friends and drive along the Bukidnon-Davao road. You could also go to the Davao City Overland Transport Terminal and ride the bus bound for Cagayan for 90 PHP or 2 USD. The trip runs for approximately 3 hours.
Facilities and Amenities
It stands as a 3-storey vacation house. The house is mainly made of wood complemented with huge glasses which completes its modern architecture with a touch of country feel. The owners haven’t used the house for a while so they have it rented to travelers. They have caretakers that welcome guests and make sure that their needs are being attended to. A parking area is also available. It looks like 3 cars can fit in it.
At first, it just looks like it is made up of 2 floors. Because it is located on a slope, you’ll find another floor when you go around.
Upon entering the front porch, you’ll be greeted with a beautiful living area. It has a huge sofa set adjacent to the mini balcony, overlooking beautiful mountains, and another sofa set made of wood, facing the TV. They have cable, so don’t worry about missing your shows! On this floor, you can also find separate rooms for toilet and shower. A small room for sleeping can be found here as well.
Upstairs is the attic. It is being divided by curtains in two – one for a sleeping quarter and another one for an oriental-themed coffee area. Huge windows were installed, so you can view the lovely scene outside. You can also get a good view of the neighboring resort which is also beautiful.
The ground floor is composed of the entertainment and dining areas. They have a pool table and karaoke. Outside, you can find a dirty kitchen where you can grill your favorite steak. Another set of toilet and shower room with heater can be accessed in this area. They also have a microwave and microwave-friendly utensils.
There is also a viewing deck where you can hang out with friends while looking at the beautiful nature around you.
If you go down further, you’ll find their infinity pool surrounded with beautiful plants.
The house is also adorned with beautiful ornaments.
Pack up a nice sweater to keep you warm. Mountains can be very cold.
Bring insect repellents. Nature has uninvited guests.

It’s that time of the year again folks. It’s when everyone gets into their costumes and ask people for candy. Otherwise, they’ll do naughty tricks. That’s right. It’s Halloween!
To celebrate, NCCC Mall held an event for the kids called “Spooky Science”. They had booths for scientific experiments so that kids can have fun and learn at the same time. Games were organized for parents and children. Trick or treat was carried out within the mall. A group of mascots provided kids with entertainment.
And of course, a costume contest transpired.
I was chosen as one of the judges for the said contest. I had a lot of fun watching kids put on very creative and spooky costumes. Some were very in character as they went on stage.
In every contest, there will be a winner. We deliberated, and ended up hailing the nurse from Silent Hill as the winner.
Those who participated will not end up with nothing for they will be given consolation prizes. Good job everyone and congratulations!
