Have You Joined Pinterest Already?

Hi guys! I’ve been out of the blog radar again for quite a while. What’s new? Haha! Anyway, I’m sure most of you have heard and are already using Pinterest. If not, it is basically a visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas. Since I’m part of their community of content curators in the Philippines, I’m gonna talk about why I love Pinterest and why you should love it too. :)

Gone are the days when I used to bookmark the pages where I found reference pictures for my projects. The lists were endless and because there were no pictures, going back to those pages was quite a challenge. And so whenI discovered Pinterest, I got really interested! Being a bit OC, I love the idea of being able to create “boards” or categories. The first I did was “DIY Line Up” to collect ideas for my DIY projects that I can post on my blog. I can now easily browse through my “PINS” since there are pictures that link to the site it came from.

Follow Michelle Rinosa-Sy’s board DIY Line-up on Pinterest.

I’m also using Pinterest’s  “secret board” to gather interior design ideas for my interior decorating projects. I also encourage my clients to use Pinterest as well since you can invite people to join the board so they can add pins too. Isn’t that fun?

So, if you’re looking for DIY ideas and interior design inspirations, why don’t you follow me over there? If you don’t have an account yet, the first 10 people can sign up using this invite link.

Modus Operandi Alert This Holiday Season: Hypnotism

As the Christmas season is already in full swing, so are the people out there who would do anything to make extra money even if it meant harming others. I don’t usually post articles like this, but I am just too bothered not to share what happened to my best friend’s sister about a week ago. I, too, have a sister and friends who are still in school and may be potential victims of this gang. It is bad enough for your phone to be taken without your knowledge, but it is way worse to be hypnotized, taken to another city with all your belongings gone upon coming back to your senses. The worst part, you have no memory of how it happened. That’s what happened to my friend’s sister. Please read the account below and I hope it would help you stay cautious and safe this holiday season.

Get a Chance to Bring your Family to The Mind Museum for FREE!

IMG_9215I was so excited when I have first heard of The Mind Museum.  Science is not exactly my most favorite subject but I love going to museums, any museums, that is.

Here’s a short overview of the museum, taken from their website:

The Mind Museum concept is uniquely Filipino. Our exhibition takes off from a narrative that presents science in over 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories. The exhibition spans nature in scale, from the smallest thing in nature to the largest and everything in between: Atom, Earth, Life, Universe and Technology.

Almost all the exhibits in The Mind Museum are originally designed by Filipino artists and fabricators who worked closely with scientists here and abroad to execute science principles or facts clearly and beautifully.  

There are also two outdoor areas to continue discovery: Science-in-the-Park and the JY Campos Park.
