Celebrity Style Blogger Victor Basa talks about the path towards discovering personal style.

The first leg of the Incredible Workshop Series was held last  May 24 at the Century Mall Events Center in Makati City and was hosted by premier actor, model, host and blogger Victor Basa who shared his journey to self-expression in fashion through his personal experience as a style blogger. Basa talked about finding the right inspiration towards personal style, and as well as the value of having the necessary and reliable tools to be used in his profession — particularly the ASUS Zenbook (UX305).

Basa believes that the ASUS Zenbook is integral to his true personal flair—the notebook’s sleek exterior, superior power and battery life, and breathtaking picture and video quality effortlessly compliments the fashion blogger’s mobile and stylish lifestyle.

Learn To Grow Your Own Veggies + Herbs At Home With Cedarhills’ Organic Urban Gardening 101 Workshop

mum's thoughts, green project, green ideas, workshops, organic gardening, Home and Garden, mum going green

I have always wanted to grow my very own organic garden even in our little backyard, I guess it is only natural as I grew up having our own version of bahay kubo at home, sans the actual bahay kubo, that is! My Mama has a passion for gardening and planting, we have veggies and plants growing in every available space in the backyard. We have eggplant, okra, calamansi, sili, pandan, kamias, as well as fruit-bearing trees such as guava, mango, santol. We also have a riot of lovely flowering plants, like bougainvillea, santan, and hibiscus in different colors. I can also vividly remember the beautiful scent of sampaguita surrounding the yard, which used to greet me each morning.

It was unfortunate that I did not inherit my Mama’s green thumb and my feeble attempt at gardening in pots were rather unsuccessful, with most of the plants and herbs I got drying up and eventually dying.
