Oolong Tea

It is normal for all OFWs to bring some "pasalubong" to our colleagues.  My officemate just came from vacation and gave one box of Oolong tea. I was curious about this tea because this is the first time I heard about this tea, especially the name.  I'm only familiar with green tea, black tea, yellow tea, and white tea.  So I searched in google and found out that this tea is the combination of green tea and black tea. Therefore the health benefits are doubled because the combined qualities of green and black tea.

According to health experts Oolong tea is used to sharpen thinking skills and improve mental alertness, reduces obesity and stress. It is also used to prevent cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, protects against tooth decay and functions as an antioxidant.  But there are also negative effects of drinking oolong tea.  It should be consumed in moderation because oolong tea has a very high content of caffeine.  I will try to drink oolong tea and check if there will be some effects to my health.

Beaded Bracelet

Bought this beaded bracelet at Robinsons Galleria during my vacation (two months ago) as an added layer of personalization.  Since wearing it as my everyday accessory, it became a lucky charm bracelet to me. Things are getting positive regarding my financial and personal state.

Lenovo Vibe P1

I bought a new smartphone to replace my old Samsung Galaxy S5. My officemate wants to buy the S5 so I decided to buy the mid-range Lenovo Vibe P1. After using it for 5 days, Vibe P1 never disappoints me especially the mammoth 5000mAh battery.  It takes me 3 days of using it before I charged it. The Lenovo Vibe P1 has a 13MP rear and 5MP front facing camera, with a 32 GB built-in, 2 GB RAM, there is also a miscroSD card slot, which you can put up to 128 GB dedicated card slot. It has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 px with finger print sensor, and a 5.5 inches IPS-LCD capacitive touchscreen display.  The only con about this smartphone is that the display is not that brilliant unlike the super AMOLED display of Samsung smartphones.  However, the sound is dynamic with a very low distortion and noise, the operating system is the much touted Android OS version 5.1 Lollipop. Well, what do you expect on a mid-range smartphone.  The important thing is you are satisfied using it.
