5 Details That Pinpoint Quality Clothes

When we shop for clothes, it's easy to look at the general piece, but in order to judge the quality of clothing, it's necessary to examine the details. Most people don't notice these details or understand how important they can be to the garment,  but we fashionistas put a little more thought into our purchase.

Here are five details that can help you examine if the clothes are well-made and of high quality:

1. The Stitching
Stitching can make or break a piece of clothing - literally! Well-made stitching is a sign of high quality clothes, since it's expensive to invest in expert seamstresses or machinery to put together every piece of clothing. Unfortunately, a lot of clothes is made in factories abroad where less attention is placed on the quality of the work and more on producing as many pieces as possible. This results in clothing that will only withstand a few washes before the threads start pulling apart. Before buying any clothes, take a look at the inside stitching and make sure it's precise and strongly sewn.

Watch Out for Davao's Homegrown Taxi App

Davao city is slowly becoming popular, not only in the Philippines, but all over the world. There are many beautiful places to visit in our city. Dabawenyos and Dabawenyas are known to be hospitable and disciplined. We also have the stinky yet absolutely delicious fruit (durian) in Davao. At the same time, the 2016 President-elect of the Philippines came from the city. In fact, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte (soon to be President Digong) has been known as the father of the Davao people. These are just some of the few reasons why our city has gained popularity. 

Indeed, there are so many things to love about Davao. Let's add one more thing on the list: the soon-to-be launched homegrown taxi app. This is the first in Davao city and you have to check it once it becomes available on Apple and Google store.

Taxi Link is the first-ever taxi application in Davao city! This all-new smartphone app has been developed by R.A. Hao Group of Companies as commissioned by Souther Maligaya Taxi. The said technology has been developed to improve the taxi company's service to the Filipino people.

A Luxury and Chic Tour of Italy

Italy is undoubtedly one of the top places to visit on a luxury getaway, especially for couples or honeymooners. Historical cities such as Rome, Florence and Venice are world-renowned for their ancient Roman, Byzantine and Baroque style architecture, for their prized works of art, bridges, churches and cathedrals dating back centuries. These and of course the Amalfi coast (stretching for 11,200 hectares between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno) along with the island of Sicily in southern Italy and its surrounding Egadi and Aeolian archipelagos, provide the perfect settings for moonlit promenades in city squares or by the beach, romantic dinners in the many restaurants in the town piazzas or street alleys, art/archaeological tours, museum visits, relaxing in the healthy breeze of the Mediterranean, and for fashionable shopping trips. And if you want to make your trip even more chic, why not embark on a road trip and travel in style with a luxury convertible car, which you can rent on popular sites like, which offers convenience, luxury and style through its wide selection of vehicles that are perfect for any needs. This is also another important factor since public transportation in Italy at times can be quite unreliable- especially if going into the countryside; so a car rental is usually the best choice for visitors.

The Immigrant Wife: Her Spiritual Journey (Book Review x Giveaway)

As a girl on the brink of womanhood in 1960s India, Shanti Bamzai has big dreams. Rather than enter into an arranged marriage like her sister, Shanti embarks on a journey into the unknown, leaving her family home behind for an education and a chance to chart her own destiny. While India experiences an upheaval of cultural and societal changes as old-world traditions collide with the modern global era, Shanti navigates college, a marriage of her own choosing, and motherhood, fighting a constant battle between the pressures of traditional expectations and her own burning desire to be an artist and an independent woman. A move to America presents exciting new opportunities, but Shanti is disappointed to find herself still hemmed in by the restrictions of her Indian upbringing. As her children become adults and her marriage becomes a shell of what it once was, Shanti must find the courage to step out of her husband’s shadow and into the life she’s always dreamed of.

My Review

Reading good books always makes my soul happy. When I got a copy of The Immigrant Wife: Her Spiritual Journey, I never got a chance to read it immediately. I just downloaded it and saved the book on my laptop. One day, as I was browsing for some files, I came across my copy of The Immigrant Wife. Luckily, for that day, I had nothing much to do since I started reading the novel. Guess what? I really wished I read it as soon as I got my copy. It's definitely a must-read novel.
