FarmOn 19th Cycle Aug 2018

August 2018, FarmOn opened their 19th Cycle and I have decided to pick up some crops and try again to invest my extra money. I have tried FarmOn way back 2016 and forgot to keep in track the cycle opening so this was my first farmon investment for 2018.

If you haven't heard of FarmOn it's a crowdfunding site for farming business in the selected locations in the Philippines. If you like to know more about FarmOn, please check on their website: https://www.farmon.ph.

I created this blog post to record how much can I earn from this cycle, Farmon didn't ask me to write this blog post for them, just sharing my experience for this cycle.
Php 12000 was my total bill and I still have Php 30 balance, so it was deducted from the total already. However, I think the amount column should be fixed because the website displayed that the Php 30 balance was deducted from every row of crop. (hope you fix this Farmon)

The updated total now was Php 11970 and paid on time. It took the FarmOn Support team - 10 days to respond and confirm my payment. They gave the notice to wait for the crops to be reflected on my account and Expect it before the start of real farming (October 01,2018).

I forgot to screenshot the duration of other crops I purchased, I'll try to update it once I got access already. FarmOn already closed the buying of crops by the time I'm writing this blog post.

  • Banana - Garit Sur
  • Rice Daffodils - Roxas Isabela - 6-8months
  • Squash - Lal-lo Cagayan

I'll be updating this post for my earnings for the 19th cycle as soon as I got the sales already

Sending International Parcel from Philippines via Philpost

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I post here on my blog. I have mentioned that we have collaborated with my IG Skincare friends for an International Giveaway. So I'll be talking about my experience when sending out our package.

Just to give you idea on what's inside my package
  • its a 3.5 kg box with dimension of 8x6x10 inches
  • Receiver's country: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
We came up to the decision to ship via Philpost because it's more convenient and less hassle on our part. Some might ask why not try courier like FEDEX, LBC OR DHL?
I tried to inquire with DHL(LBC partner for international parcels) and 2GO but I got the following feedback from them:
  • Documentation Requirements for all packages with Beauty Products: FDA Certificate, Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), Certificate of Non Dangerous Goods
  • Whitening products are prohibited
  • Quote Courier Fee: Php 8,900~
We opted for a better option which is Philpost. I was able to ship out our package hassle free, just dont forget to bring your own packaging for big items and materials such as Bubble wrap, packing tape and cutter/scissors. If you're shipping small items, don't worry because they will provide Philpost pouch as well. 

My package costs via Philpost was only Php 2,979 and will be shipped via sea cargo. That was much cheaper than the other courier I have asked. Estimate arrival to Abu Dhabi was 3-4 weeks. I'll update this post if when will the receiver get her package.

We have shipped out the package August 28, and the received confirmed she got the package September 13. That was fast! it was only 12 business days. I'm glad we used EMS for this transactions

Benton Cosmetic Snail Bee Ultimate serum

Benton Snail Bee Ultimate serum was part of my AM and PM routine for the past few weeks and I think it's okay to give my complete feedback about this serum.

This 35ml serum claims to contain 70% Saccharomyces or the snail secretion ferment filtrate as the base ingredient that protects skin and adds suppleness. Also contains bee venom to sooth the blemishes, Tea tree leaf for antibacterial, Niacinamide and Adenosine for whitening and anti-wrinkle.


✨It has no scent
✨This serum glides fine, slightly tacky but it also sinks faster than snail serum from the mask. I remember my Benton Snail Bee Essence, they are quite similar in terms of texture.
✨It helped my dried pimples to lighten but not as a prevention for my hormonal acne.
✨It gives me a healthy glow especially after using a drying product like clay/face mask

I received this product from Benton in exchange for an honest review

August Empty #1
#EsfolioPH Soy Milk Daily Toner
Cools and refreshes skin I often use it as a face mist because its mild and gentle. Preferred to spritz this rather than soaking into cotton

Ilahui Cafe, Uptown Mall Bonifacio Global City

A few days ago, Ilahui in Uptown Mall BGC opened their Cafe to their shoppers which surely coffee lovers would love to try out. Ilahui is a one-stop shop for Korean inspired premium products, and now offers drinks too!

We have tried the Ice Roasted Almond Latte which I find too strong for me (I know some people who love strong coffee would really appreciate this kind of taste). I'm looking forward to trying their frappes next week.

We got it on their opening promo buy 1 get 1, but you may also get the 2 different flavors just pay whichever costs higher, promo until August 5, 2018

Since they have marked it as their cafe, I'm looking for any cakes or bread which I also saw from their facebook, but it's not yet available when we visit that day.

here's a price list of Ilahui Cafe Drinks as of August 2018

All 4 U - SM City Masinag

 It's my first time to try unlimited Korean beef and shabu grill, and I felt excited when I got an invite to try All4U located in SM City Masinag.

If you love Korean Beef AND Shrimp - unlimited serving, I highly recommend the place!

This is how the electric griller looks like. It comes with an adjustor set up if you need a low or high heat, or if you like to grill or heat up the soup. I often see a grill restaurant using a charcoal, so All4U was a bit different. Service crew was very helpful as well when we request to move into the table with the nearest exhaust.

They have an opening promo of Php 599 per head wherein you can have an unlimited serving of Shrimp, US Beef, Pork Belly Korean Fish Cake, Marinated Chicken.
 This is how the place looks like inside
 Tables are ready with their own noodles as well
I'm excited to bring my family here soon as they would love to have some soup and do a grill bonding! By the way, All 4 U is located at Upper Ground Level of SM City Masinag
