The hard thing about being a "techie" is trying to keep up with the latest technology. That's what being a "techie" is all about, salivating over the latest processor bump or the newest high resolutions screen.
One of the problems that techies encounter most of the time is the availability of these gadgets and the affordability.

I'm not a real techie to the nerdy level but I still want to have the latest gadgets at the cheapest I can get :-) so my advice is buy online because online sellers don't have the overhead of standard physical shops like employee's salaries, light, water, rent and etc.. so, they generally have lower prices.

I admit that it's a bit scary buying online because of the anonymity of the seller and the big chance of the seller just simply not sending you the unit that you purchased after sending the money, but there are established online sellers out there that are very legitimate and have great service. Here are some of the sellers that I have bought from and deliver the goods on time.

I bought my Macbook pro retina display from here:

Apple store price around august is P137,990
Apple Benta Mansanas sells it for only P124,000

See the big difference? that's P13,990 you save! :-)

Apple benta mansanas resell's all apple products only.

I bought an Iphone4s and Iphone5 here:

Iphone4s Apple store price around February is P38,000
DBgadgets sells it for only P30,000

P8,000 saved!

DBgadgets sells DSLR, digicam, almost all kinds of cellphones, tablets, lenses, flash, camcorder and gaming consoles :-)

I bought my first digicam here:

Cannon store around P19,000 
Kimstore sells it for only P13,000

P6,000 saved!

Kimstore sells DSLR, digicam, almost all kinds of cellphones, tablets, lenses, flash, camcoredr and gaming consoles :-)

These three are truly trusted sellers :-) this is based from my own experience :-) I hope my tips have been helpful to you techies and not-so-techies out there :-)

Look4 - Neons

Top: Forever21
Shorts: Terranova
Shoes: Shoe crazee
Envelope bag: Bubbles
Neon bangles: Local store, Aisilym.
Necklace: Accessorize

I told you I wasn't good at accessorizing :)) haha! Looking at these photos made me realize that I wear this necklace every time ;) from my first outfit post up to now haha! forgive me, I swear I'm gonna learn to accessorize asap! Lol

I wore this during Fiesta Pilar, I thought I would be able to go town to see the street dance but then I changed my mind.. I didn't want to go out because it was so hot and so traffic so I ended up staying in the office :-) but I still had fun because my friends decided to have a movie marathon and the theme was horror! so we were shouting and teasing each other because of our funny reactions :)) that's all for today :-)

what do you think of my outfit? :-)

Look3 - Denim Love

Crop corset - Forever21
Denim polo - Forever21
High waist shorts - Bubbles
Butterfly necklace - Accessorize
Boots - Primadonna

Today was so hot then suddenly it rained so hard. This weather is so annoying -.- I posted this late because I Just got home from work :-) 

Now about my outfit, this is a no brainer, I just grabbed these clothes not thinking if they matched. When you are too lazy to think what to wear and yet you still want to look fashionable, this is the best combo : corset + shorts and blazer = perfect :-) I used my denim polo as a blazer because I wanted to go all the way denim. What do you think about my look? :-)

Noticed my necklace? It's my current fave so expect this in my next outfit post :-) hehe

Look2 - Color block

Blue/green top - Local store, bloomingdales.
Yellow blazer - Monkee business.
Neon spikes shorts - BestFinds-Thriftshop.
Pink chunky heels - Shoe goddess.
Butterfly necklace - Accessorize.
Pink sling bag - Mango.

This is what I wore on Ryan's birthday :-) The weather here, again, is so unpredictable so I wore a blazer just in case it rained. Since the neon spikes on my shorts are colorful, I decided to do some color blockings and not to excessorize because the shorts is already a statement.

We went to Catribo to celebrate his birthday. I know I'm not the celebrant but I had so much and I think he enjoyed his birthday too :-) 

what do you think about my look? :-)

Hi! I'm back! after a long long time at last I'm back to blogging. I really missed doing outfit poses, really :-)

The reason why I haven't blog for a long time because I got so busy. Fixed a lot of things in the company and put them in order. Good thing now I'm stress free and the company's doing good :-)

I know it's not summer anymore but I can't help dressing up this way. In the philippines there's only two seasons, wet and dry! :-) The weather here is so unpredictable and this time it's scorching hot again so you can't blame me if I dress up this way! hahaha

I'm still learning to accessorize so please bear with :-) It's so hard for me because I'm not really a fan of accessories ;-)

what do you think about my look? :-)
