K1 Davao: More Than Just Family KTV

K1 Family KTV has been one of my favorite karaoke bars in Davao because of their affordable rates and delicious food. When I was still working in the corporate world, I remember going there with my colleagues to sing our hearts out and de-stress after a busy work day.

A few years ago with my former colleagues. Hi, Flexmerchant peeps!
Circa 2010 with my former colleagues. Hi, Flexmerchant peeps!

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I, together with my blogger friends, met with the owner of K1 Davao, Ms. Cha Lim,  to talk about the services and facilities they offer. K1 Davao has been around for years  and it’s good to know that they continue to innovate and respond to the Davaoeños needs for fun and relaxation.

The biggest KTV room can accommodate up to 30 people.

Aside from their famous KTV rooms, did you know that they also have a restaurant and spa? Yes, they actually have a restaurant area for those who just want to have a nice meal without really having to pay for a KTV room.

There’s still time to join this giveaway, you guys! 🙂 

Hi, everyone! I’m starting this week on a positive note by hosting a giveaway! Yay?

If you’re a follower of this blog, then you’ve probably noticed the change in url. Yes, it’s now running on a new domain and I couldn’t be more excited!  I’ve wanted to do this for some time now, but I’ve been putting it aside for fear that I might not be able to maintain it as much as I do with my other blog.

Most people know me as the beauty blogger behind As Told By Julz, but while I do love sharing my beauty adventures, it only accounts for 10% of my life and there’s a whole world of stuff that I do on the other side of my vanity table; things that I hope to share with you through this blog. Hopefully, this new domain will keep me inspired.


And so to celebrate this milestone, I’m giving away a Besties Book by Solenn Huessaff and Georgina Wilson. Who knows, maybe we can be online besties in the future, yes?

I’m also throwing in this cute Read More »

Freebie Friday: Rosetta Shabby Chic Digital Scrapbook Paper

Hi, everyone! I am starting this series called “Freebie Friday”. This is basically where I give out free stuff for everyone to download; mostly digital scrapbooking things such as elements, stickers, buttons, and scrapbook paper that you can either use digitally or print to use for a physical scrapbook.

A Little Sidenote

You may not know this about me, but I am a huge scrapbook nerd. I fell in love with it as I think it is such a fun way to preserve memories with a creative flare. I used to hoard a lot of scrapbook papers back in the day, until I learned how to create patterned papers using Adobe Photoshop – all thanks to YouTube! Since then, I would simply create and print a pattern that I like to use in one of my scrapbooking projects. I do enjoy creating  scrapbook papers and I would really love to share them with you!

Rosetta Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic is definitely a favorite theme of mine, so it’s only fitting to share this Rosetta Shabby Chis scrapbook paper set for my first “Freebie Friday.” This reminds me of a cozy afternoon tea in the middle of a rose garden. Don’t you agree?

Each pattern has a standard 12″x 12″ size with 300 DPI.  Click the button below to download the entire set. Read More »
