SM Celebrates 30th Year!




SM celebrates it 30th anniversary this 2016!  

To date, they have 55 malls around Metro Manila and SM North started it all!

In 1985, when the country was experiencing a lot of turmoil, SM North EDSA bravely opened and it was only the beginning of bigger and better things to come!

Tips for a New Graduate



You've just graduated!  Congratulations!!!  *avalanche of confetti*  

Now what?

Many graduates jump into the first job they get without thinking of the implications.  They may languish for years in a job that they weren't meant for.  Don't be the type of person who hops from one job to another, trying to find the right fit.  You can lessen the trial and error with these useful resources.

Confused about what your career should be?

After praying about your future, and maybe a bit of daydreaming, what next?

Graduates of today are in a very good place.  We are in the Information Age and all the tools you need can be easily accessed through the ether.  Questions like, "What kind of job would I be happy in?", "What is my working style?", "What type of work environment will I thrive in?"

Here are scientifically engineered tests that will give you an idea of which jobs to look for.  They may take a bit of your time but it's worth it! Take these different tests.

Think it's time to spread your resumes around?  Think again.  
How Employers Find you 

For more information, we highly recommend the book "What Color is My Parachute" by Richard Bolles.  This book features easy ways to know more about yourself and find the career which best suits you!

Pretty Packaging DIY



Easily make your own packaging for gifts like jewelry, magnets, pins, hankies and other small items!




A bit of lace, flowers made from scrap cloth and a metal heart makes a romantic package for some jewelry.  These can be decorated in so many other different ways too!

Patricia Paterno shows us how...





I’ve always wanted to use toilet paper rolls and save them from the trash heap. I decided to use it for “packaging” or “gift wrap”. All that is needed is a toilet paper roll, scissors, a lid or bottle to use as a pattern, a pencil, a cutter, some embellishments and wrappers, and some glue.




First, I flattened the roll, and creased the sides with the side of the pair of scissors.




Then I used a lid to make curved guides at the end of the roll for cutting.




The guides have to end at the edge of the roll like a rainbow.




Use a cutter to make a shallow cut using your pencil lines as a guide.




Fold along the crease to try it out.






It should look something like this.




Choose a wrapper to cover the roll. I like using book paper. You can use white glue, or a glue stick. Make sure you leave a margin around the ends.




Now you can glue down your margins inside the roll.




This was my first try when I used glue all over the roll. It didn’t turn out so well. It went better when I just used glue sparingly for the edges of the bookpaper.




I find that gluing just the edges of the paper makes for a better looking package!!!







Make a V-cut on the two sides of the book paper.




Now for the part I like best- embellishing! Here I used ribbon and some leaves and flowers from my garden.



Baker’s twine, a tag and some leaves makes a colorful wrap!





Here I used papemelroti Mashi tape and stickers. What to put inside? Maybe some chocolates!




I experimented using scrap cloth- this one needed gluing all over.




So easy to make with some ric rac and stickers! Cute wrapping for some hair bows or clips!
