There are laptops but there are Apple MacBooks. The people at Apple took pains to create this simple yet sleek looking design. Not to sound like a fan boy but people pay also for the design aside from the functionality. While it looks fashionably good out there and bare, MacBooks can easily get scratched. For a guy like me who likes to rough it out when I travel and slip the MacBook on my backpack sleeve, my MacBook does need an extra protection. I decided to use a shell case for that extra layer of protection and looking around for some options I decided to try the iPearl mCover Hard Shell. After more than a month of using it, here’s what I can share.
Summer has just started so there’s still time to get this awesome Lagu Beach Towel! So what’s so special about them?
- It’s sand repellant! (aside from getting those annoying sand on your clothes and stuff it helps preserve the sands on the beach, leaving them where they belong)
- It’s quick dry! (very convenient especially for packing)
- It’s allergen free (Personally it doesn’t itch on the skin)
- It’s proudly Philippine Made! (love our local products!)
If you’re still thinking about a neat Christmas gift for that traveller friend of yours, let me just say it’s not that hard to find items that’s very useful to take on a trip. These items aren’t expensive and are even useful. Checkout the Headware and its new Visor variant, some Messy Bessy Little Warrior and Human Heart Nature Bug Spray.
Traveling can take a toll physically especially on long journeys. When I find myself coming in on a destination from a long transit, I allow myself time to recharge so when I explore a destination I would have a clear head and more alert with my surroundings. One sure way to get the energy back is to have a quality sleep but that’s not always easy adapting to a new environment or you’re in company who have a different lighting preference with you while you sleep. Tempur Philippines recently introduced me on some of their accessories to make sleep a lot more comfortable.
Tempur in the Philippines had me try a couple of their Travel Accessories namely the Travel Pillow and the Sleep Mask. I already know the reputation of Tempur when it comes to pillows and and mattresses. Hey it’s the only way one can try NASA and Space Foundation certified products on a regular consumer basis. So what’s so special about Tempur? Here’s a quote for you:
Call me old-fashioned but despite having a digital calendar on my smartphone, I still use use my trusty Moleskines to refer to past trips and also for those random notes I jot down on the road.
I recently got my new 18-months Weekly Notebook/Diary Moleskine, and having used these legendary notebook for years already, it’s a delightful surprise to see that they now added those fine looking icon stickers to label the pages. The graphical icons were really neatly designed. I guess with so many imitator and competitors now for that handy notebook they need to add something new. And I liked it!
I just got back from Hong Kong. It was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Along with me, I took along Design Go’s Travel Wallet which I complimentary got from Primer. I’m not really an organizer-kind of guy and would just keep my documents in zip locks so it was also my first time to try out using an organizer on a trip.
I may travel a lot but I also encounter some packing blunders such as overweight and underweight luggage when I’m not backpacking. I remember when I got really stressed out in Singapore Airport as I was relying on sharing my excess baggage weight with my companions, to find out it can’t be done since I have a separate ticket. I had to make adjustments on my luggage by removing items and weighing several times just to get it right. I certainly don’t want to pay the SG$15/kg excess baggage fee.
